Pompey's Bidders: Do They Want To Be Public Or Private?

If you want to take over a football club – Portsmouth Football Club in particular - and remain anonymous, why would you appoint a frontman and send him down to meet the media and fans, and pose for pictures wearing a scarf?

Pompey Fans' Focus Is More On Lloyd Than Liverpool

There’s one thing you can guarantee when Pompey visit Anfield on Monday night – the cameras will spend longer trained on the directors’ box than on the pitch.

Administrator's Message To Grant Over Pompey Squad Future

Do Pompey Fans Want Spurs? Yes And No...

It had to be, didn’t it? And now, Pompey fans don’t know what to think. Spurs or Fulham in the FA Cup semi-finals? They want it to be Spurs – and at the same time, they don’t. How sweet it would be for the post-Redknapp Pompey, now containing just a couple of the players he brought to Fratton, to take on the man himself and some of those he brought to Pompey then took away, and beat them. That would just about make this season’s woes worthwhile.. ....

Business As Usual For Pompey .. But What On Earth Is Usual?
