    Your club were willing to sell them . Probably need the cash to keep you in existance. Seems strange that you would rather keep your players than keep your club going!
    Oh and it wasnt that they didnt want to come, it was that we wouldnt pay them what they wanted, ala Norris so it looks like really you are more than happy to spend money you dont have which Im pretty sure is what got you into trouble in the first place.

    they are probably all busy filling in forms to make a benefits claim. i wouldn't be surprised to see them end on jeremy kyle claiming they want to work but their are no jobs out there.

    So being 19th in the Championship had nothing to do with then, genius.

    These 'loyal' players will probably sack your club off by summer, if we offered the money they would have strolled swiftly away from Fratton Park!

    would appear that loyalty and commitment was key here for a change something we rarely see in the modern game and very refreshing. if we had sold the players we may have balanced things for a few weeks but nothing more, who's going to buy a club with a squad that can't compete? we either get a new buyer willing to inject cash immediately or go down together fighting and re-emerge as a fan based club. either way the true fans will still be there week in week out and at the end of the day if we have a team to support and hopefully can retain fraction park then ill be more than happy.

    IF what they done it based on loyalty and their commitment to the club fair play to them but after the Norris debacle then I would guess that you have actually awarded them all very attractive contracts and unsustainable contracts already
    Ant you dont seem too bothered by what your club is facing. Worst case is not that you will be relegated but that you will be no longer. A fan based club may emerge but they will have to start from the bottom and work their way up and being able to do that from Fratton Park seems an overly optimistic view. Hopefully it wont happen to you (as fans) but I also feel that it is wrong that a club can continue to shaft so many people and have no true ramifications against them.

    If only the club had shown the same commitment when it came to paying the bills. I've heard that at night games they ask fans to pay with fifty pence's so they can keep the meter topped up.

    the club is running within the budget set out by the cva agreement there are a few players left on high wages but this has been balanced with a lack of numbers and the introduction of some youth players. the cva agreement stated a top average wage (believed to be around 10k) and the league have approved any business that has taken place since. the club was running a 5 year plan and looking at loosing the likes of tal ben haim etc as and when their contracts expired and concentrating on youth development. the company that owned us appeared to be very stable and willing to input cash into the development of the ground training area etc. what happened with the Lithuanian bank had absolutely nothing to do with portsmouth fc and its day to day running and is the only reason we are in trouble again due to the "issues" at the bank our parent company is in administration (only to protect its assets but thats another matter all together) therefore the immediate cash flow has stopped and the tax bill is currently unpaid. and also the option of keeping fratton park no matter what is a very realistic one it has been very well protected as far as building is concerned and i believe the council are already looking at the options should it be necessary to step in. all in all there will be a portsmouth f.c, be it non league or be it championship there will still be a team to support. plan b (start from scratch) is becoming more appealing by the day, the fans have no say in the transfer budgets money laundering or anything else to do with the way the club is run yet it is us that get the abuse day in day out, as if we were all on the board when the creditors went unpaid. at least as a new club with a fresh start that monkey would be off our back and the choke hold various foreigners currently hold over us would be no more. with the true hardcore of the fans staying behind the club the gates wold be high for non league football club and give us a great platform to re establish ourself.
