SAINTS are hoping to complete a deal to sign Florin Gardos from Steaua Bucharest in time to prepare him to face Liverpool on Sunday.

The 25-year-old centre half is set to move to St Mary’s for a fee of about €7.5m (£5.9m).

His addition will come as a welcome boost to Ronald Koeman as he seeks to add to his backline following the summer departure of Dejan Lovren for £20m.

Koeman has also held talks with Morgan Schneiderlin after the French midfielder was given the weekend off as he continued to push for a move behind the scenes. Further talks are planned for this week.

Gardos will be assessed by Koeman and his staff if, as expected, his deal goes through today, they hope to field him at Anfield alongside Jose Fonte.

The Romanian has plenty of experience in his home country but this will be his first move abroad as a professional.

Gardos has enjoyed success with Steaua, winning the Romanian top flight two seasons in a row, the Romanian Cup in 2011 and the Romanian Supercup in 2013.

He started his career at Concordia Chianja in Romania but his talents were recognised by Steaua Bucharest, who paid €150,000 for him in 2010.

Since then he has gone on to play 81 times for the club, scoring three goals.

Gardos had the option to play for Hungary but chose to represent Romania, and has played for them at youth level and full international where he has so far won 12 caps.

Koeman was asked about Saints’ interest in Gardos last week and replied: “We are interested in the player but until now they haven’t told me that it’s signed or it’s OK.

“I don’t know, but we are interested, that is true.”

Saints have also retained an interest in Sporting Lisbon centre half Marcos Rojo.

He looks like a really good player.
Let's hope he,like all the other players RoKos brought
In,will gel.
Lulic looks like another good player to bring in, hopefully
It will happen,apparently he's up for a move.
Left back,left mid field. The Train as he's known at Lazio.
I'm not all for too many none British players in the first
Team, but their experience is ideal to bring on our younger
Players and take some of the pressure off their young
Shoulders.

Whilst our goal ratio was poor for the sheer possession and domination we had last season it at least kept teams of our defense, MoPo pressing style and speeding up of our game certainly gave us more cover and less panic attacks than under NA …

Unfortunately because we have from everything i have seen and heard so far lost that element to our game I worry that our iffy defense will come under the same kind of exposure as start of 12/13 season…

Scoring which was once so simple for us, has, since the start of the year aside from against very weak teams all but disappeared…

..even last year I think we had 23 chances against WBA for 2 goals they had 3 for 3!!

Now we do not look like creating those chances…..

Who exactly have we lined up to deal with this?

Never mentioned the purchase side of it at all. Although, given the shortage of quality at the back, ideally someone fit and not injured should have been priority. It's strange, because after looking at all the available public information and reading this report he clearly won't be fit for Sat.

Oh, I thought you meant a boy scout - doing his good deed for the day - helping those less fortunate than himself - or maybe on bob-a-job week - till he realises there's no money there.

This is a GOOD signing by all accounts. I will be pleased when the ink is dry as these things are never settled until then.

I didn't know the rumour about him being injured .. is there are truth in that?

Its true we wont be the 100% coordinated team unit we need to be by Sunday , but it will come. Supporting football teams is about faith, and most of us have that or we wouldnt be so interested in all this. Football management is about planning, psychology, and choosing the right blend of players. Ron has plenty of quality to choose from now. I really don't think the apocalypse that many feared will happen ... but it has been one hell of a close season...

Frankly all I want now is to see some football.

Maybe the Echo should occasionally take a look at what is posted by people that are nothing to do with Saints or relevant matters and do something about it.
It's not rocket science to spot obvious WUM or sad pathetic individuals who are only on here to disrupt the threads, insult people and get some attention.

Its true we wont be the 100% coordinated team unit we need to be by Sunday , but it will come. Supporting football teams is about faith, and most of us have that or we wouldnt be so interested in all this. Football management is about planning, psychology, and choosing the right blend of players. Ron has plenty of quality to choose from now. I really don't think the apocalypse that many feared will happen ... but it has been one hell of a close season...

Frankly all I want now is to see some football.
European journo last night assured us that this guy is highly rated and good business. I personally know nothing about him, but I think this could be a good bit of business and not the last player to come in. Just really sad about Robin Williams, kinda puts our whole exodus summer in perspective.

As with most I know very little about this guy but the reports seem good.
Last year we signed dejerk and were told by the Lyon fans that he wasn't all that good and came with a big attitude problem, he turned out great, well apart from the attitude. So hopefully this guy can turn out just as good, no I didn't say he was better! I don't think we should hold the price against him.
Looks to be another astute signing, assuming he does sign, roll on Sunday!

Hope this guy is quality - looks a good stature, a decent footballer and can score quality goals if youtube is anything to go by, although let's face it, it usually isn't.

Looks promising though - commanding, big and tall, a bit like Forster, so we are getting in some real physical guys at the back - wonder why Koeman would favour that?!

On another matter - can I ask the Echo to replace that incredibly annoying video that is always churning our 'big club' rubbish with a feed from the official Saints video channel? Surely they can work some sort of a deal out on that?

It's grating hearing about Robin Van Persie, Man City and Arsenal all the time, over and over again.

Back on the thread, this player picked up a muscular injury in May and has been recuperating ever since so is unlikely to be fit to play against Liverpool, but if he has passed our stringent fitness test, there shouldn't be anything to be concerned about. still haven't seen any real evidence that he is actually in the building! Just tweets and SSN, and a few speculative newspaper reports.

Judging by this summer I think you can assume it's a done deal then. And the club and Echo are staying quiet, so that's even more certain.

Ha, ha, especially judging by the Shoot article. They say he's 51!

Does seem a bit weird to be letting Rickie go and replacing him with a 31 year old to be honest. Quality player no doubt and a coup for the club, but considering Ronald has just stated he wants to look to the future by replacing a pretty decent keeper in his early 30s (when keepers tend to be able to extend their careers far longer than strikers), I doubt this is a likely target.

And he doesn't strike me as someone who will sit on the bench.

Exciting though.

Ah, starting a post with an insult - ever the diplomat Andy.

I think we're still negotiating over Rojo as far as I'm aware and, if not him, I'm confident we'll have someone else lined up.

Rojo in theory sounds ideal though - will be bought as a left back primarily with the option as cover for Florin if needed.

We do need cover for Fonte in my opinion though, or ideally competition if I'm honest.

Let's be honest - bringing players in doesn't necessarily mean they are going to be amazing (Yoshida and Forren are good examples), but we can only hope they are.

Also, I don't think Koeman or the board will be scrambling around panicking about getting players in for Anfield.

Anfield is one game, and always a tough one at that. I'd prefer to use that as a chance for existing players to hold on to the shirts (which is only wise anyway given the lack of training any new players would have) and protect the new guys for the next game at least.

As Koeman said - he bought Forster to be our keeper for five years, not in a scramble to get a strong team for day one.

Any thoughts on this?
Too old.
Ha, ha, especially judging by the Shoot article. They say he's 51!

Does seem a bit weird to be letting Rickie go and replacing him with a 31 year old to be honest. Quality player no doubt and a coup for the club, but considering Ronald has just stated he wants to look to the future by replacing a pretty decent keeper in his early 30s (when keepers tend to be able to extend their careers far longer than strikers), I doubt this is a likely target.

And he doesn't strike me as someone who will sit on the bench.

Exciting though.
No disrespect to Lambo top man we all know, but this guy is a cut above and if he had a contract for a couple of years could do us a lot of good on the pitch, help the youngsters and may just do us some good with future transfers such as Vlaar?
Agreed - this fella is top notch and providing he's not injured could be leading the line for 2/3 years and useful on the bench for another 1/2
Fingers crossed then.

Don't like to be negative but I hope we have not missed Rojo because we didn't table the asking price and were trying to get him on the cheap, especially after the inflated prices we sold the outgoing crowd for.

I don't think so - he plays wing backs. I think he'd play Rojo in central defence. Don't really want to think about that though - hopefully just a rumour.

This saga does have all the same markings of the Buttner transfer though - player and his agent mucking about waiting for a big club to come in.

The problem with the Rojo deal, is a sign of yet another blight on the beautiful game, i.e. third party ownership, it was originally allowed to enable lower teams to afford decent players, like everything else it has been taken over by greedy entities only out to make money. I would rather we didn't get involved in it, however talented the target player is. We pay a fair price or not at all.

Use the report button and tell the echo you are offended by this idiot and his vile comments, In fact I urge everyone who finds the use of this term offensive to report him for it. The more people who do the more likely the echo are to do something.

He should be easy to spot mate they don't get very big crowds down at Pimpey any more. He'll be sat alone as clearly a personality as magnetic as this one will not really attract anything other than imaginary friends.

I have a 6 yr old niece with Down's and a more cheerful, mischievous and loving nature would be hard to find. No point reporting him he'll resurface within a week using one of his other ID's. Better to him ignore him really. I look upon him as a bit of a toy and he's not that bright . Not difficult to work out and wind up. Doubt you'll ever see him at St Mary's unless the twatnav on is mountain bike has given him a wrong turn. To be found mainly at the sewer end of the M27 cavorting with the crustaceans and bottom dwellers.

Yeah, I don't think that will be the case. I think in reality the delays are to do with dual ownership of the player and, as a result, maybe some vested interests. If we do lose out on this target I doubt it will be down to us.

Personally I wouldn't want to see us spending silly money on defenders anyway so I can understand us bargaining on price. The fee we are paying for Florin and paid for Lovren is more sensible. Caulker went for about £8M as well, so I don't think we need to be held to ransom by agents.

Looks a good player, but if Man Utd are indeed tabling a bid I think you can assume they've made their interest known a long time back, which potentially explains why the negotiations have been somewhat dragged out. I seem to remember Luke Shaw was boasting about going to Man Utd a long time before the bid was received.

Let's be honest - bringing players in doesn't necessarily mean they are going to be amazing (Yoshida and Forren are good examples), but we can only hope they are. Also, I don't think Koeman or the board will be scrambling around panicking about getting players in for Anfield. Anfield is one game, and always a tough one at that. I'd prefer to use that as a chance for existing players to hold on to the shirts (which is only wise anyway given the lack of training any new players would have) and protect the new guys for the next game at least. As Koeman said - he bought Forster to be our keeper for five years, not in a scramble to get a strong team for day one.[/p][/quote]They've got a better chance of being a good player for us if we buy them than if we let someone else buy them though eh!?[/p][/quote]Hold on.

Mr saint76 says...

Am I missing something here. After last season we all thought that the team needed strengthening. Which in my mind is bringing in EXTRA players who are better than the ones that are there. Instead we sell 5 players and it seems are struggling to replace them. Whether these replacements will be better than those who left we are yet to find out, but that is not my point. My point is that if 5 went out we should have been trying to get in at least 8 not just to replace those but also to bolster the squad.
On another point how come no one at Saints saw Chambers as a centre back, looked pretty good against City. I am not convinced that all this money is not going to be divided by the board, I hope I'm wrong

Ah, starting a post with an insult - ever the diplomat Andy.

I think we're still negotiating over Rojo as far as I'm aware and, if not him, I'm confident we'll have someone else lined up.

Rojo in theory sounds ideal though - will be bought as a left back primarily with the option as cover for Florin if needed.

We do need cover for Fonte in my opinion though, or ideally competition if I'm honest.

Let's be honest - bringing players in doesn't necessarily mean they are going to be amazing (Yoshida and Forren are good examples), but we can only hope they are.

Also, I don't think Koeman or the board will be scrambling around panicking about getting players in for Anfield.

Anfield is one game, and always a tough one at that. I'd prefer to use that as a chance for existing players to hold on to the shirts (which is only wise anyway given the lack of training any new players would have) and protect the new guys for the next game at least.

As Koeman said - he bought Forster to be our keeper for five years, not in a scramble to get a strong team for day one.
Rojo would be a great signing, but there's no chance of him coming. I agree that all the signings aren't going to be amazing, but we do lack squad depth in some positions.

You are right that the Liverpool game is just ONE game, but wouldn't it be lovely to get a win and give everybody a nice confidence boost, hopefully setting the tone for the season. You are totally pragmatic in saying better to build a strong team slowly, but in this division team and squad deficiencies are punished. So I just hope we have enough depth to cover injuries etc.

I think Forster will surprise some and claim the No 1 shirt quickly. He's got some great attributes and will be working with a coach he's worked with before.

My worry is that we get hammered, the press make a hullabaloo and start painting us as relegation certs. After this summer they would love the story to be we shot ourselves in the foot this summer.

For me we couldn't have done better than Koeman, the future's bright in that department. I have to be honest and say that I reckon Poch is, unfortunately, going to do a great job at Spurs. Top six this year for them. I'd be over the moon if we could finish in the top 12. How about you?

There's no doubt that boardroom politics,and who can do what,with who's money,has had a lot to do with what has happened in this close season.

Not a great deal of news on the Schneiderling situation yet. I hope it's gone quiet because he has got the message and plays on Saturday. However I am sure lambert, Lallana and Lovren will be winding him up as they were allowed to go and he can't.
I personally will be happy circling the wagons on Saturday and play a real defensive game just like the teams did to us last season and catch them on the break. Coming away with a nil nil will be a good result.

Ah, starting a post with an insult - ever the diplomat Andy.

I think we're still negotiating over Rojo as far as I'm aware and, if not him, I'm confident we'll have someone else lined up.

Rojo in theory sounds ideal though - will be bought as a left back primarily with the option as cover for Florin if needed.

We do need cover for Fonte in my opinion though, or ideally competition if I'm honest.

Let's be honest - bringing players in doesn't necessarily mean they are going to be amazing (Yoshida and Forren are good examples), but we can only hope they are.

Also, I don't think Koeman or the board will be scrambling around panicking about getting players in for Anfield.

Anfield is one game, and always a tough one at that. I'd prefer to use that as a chance for existing players to hold on to the shirts (which is only wise anyway given the lack of training any new players would have) and protect the new guys for the next game at least.

As Koeman said - he bought Forster to be our keeper for five years, not in a scramble to get a strong team for day one.

I think Forster will surprise some and claim the No 1 shirt quickly. He's got some great attributes and will be working with a coach he's worked with before.

My worry is that we get hammered, the press make a hullabaloo and start painting us as relegation certs. After this summer they would love the story to be we shot ourselves in the foot this summer.

For me we couldn't have done better than Koeman, the future's bright in that department. I have to be honest and say that I reckon Poch is, unfortunately, going to do a great job at Spurs. Top six this year for them. I'd be over the moon if we could finish in the top 12. How about you?

Agree sadly that Spurs will do well. I'm going to try to minimise my natural bitterness towards the former players because frankly some of them will do OK - no point wasting energy that can be used to support the current Saints team. Hoddle joining QPR means there are five or six former bosses in the Prem now, so it's getting ridiculous anyway.

I'd be happy for us to avoid a relegation struggle this season and create a good platform, but if we can really bring in quality in the next fortnight maybe we can start thinking higher.

Agree Liverpool will be tough, which is why I'd prefer us to hold back some of the new guys and challenge the existing squad to show they are capable of being in and around the team.

I'd say Forster will be first choice immediately but, again, I'd stick with Boruc at Anfield. Reason being if we perform well and get a result it is a bonus, but should be be beaten we can have the confidence of knowing we have three or four quality additions to come in for the next game.

Also means the existing players know they've not been immediately jettisoned, which is a good thing anyway.

How many local players play for poopey? You should think before you open your fish shaped mouth.
Any decent Poopey born players move on asap....but they are getting thinner on the ground by the season.
7 locals in the squad this year.

Probably a lot more than any other regional team
Seven locals with 32 eyes between them - you must be proud.

I personally will be happy circling the wagons on Saturday and play a real defensive game just like the teams did to us last season and catch them on the break. Coming away with a nil nil will be a good result.
If I were Spider my reply would be "I'm far too important for the Saints to let me leave, but thanks for going, I got a pay rise and some decent team mates to play with now", Oh and btw whilst you are here your house is being burgled.

Having just slagged off the Echo's video feed have to say the Nasri interview piece is priceless and very apt. Hilarious.

'Please don't boo me. It just think it's stupid. I have a better life, am only interested in myself, am not an Arsenal fan, I have trophies, I have everything, get over it.'

It's not so much the comments, it's the fact he thinks it is OK to say them - totally out of touch with the fans who have paved the way for his career and enabled his luxury lifestyle.

In his mind he probably sees that statement as a heartfelt apology.

On to more pressing matters. Even if we get Gardos we MUST get another CB!!!

Forster is a GREAT signing and has the potential to become a Saints legend like Shilton.

Liverpool will be a handful on their own patch so we need to get any potential signings in, FAST!
Ah, starting a post with an insult - ever the diplomat Andy.

I think we're still negotiating over Rojo as far as I'm aware and, if not him, I'm confident we'll have someone else lined up.

Rojo in theory sounds ideal though - will be bought as a left back primarily with the option as cover for Florin if needed.

We do need cover for Fonte in my opinion though, or ideally competition if I'm honest.

Let's be honest - bringing players in doesn't necessarily mean they are going to be amazing (Yoshida and Forren are good examples), but we can only hope they are.

Also, I don't think Koeman or the board will be scrambling around panicking about getting players in for Anfield.

Anfield is one game, and always a tough one at that. I'd prefer to use that as a chance for existing players to hold on to the shirts (which is only wise anyway given the lack of training any new players would have) and protect the new guys for the next game at least.

As Koeman said - he bought Forster to be our keeper for five years, not in a scramble to get a strong team for day one.
Rojo would be a great signing, but there's no chance of him coming. I agree that all the signings aren't going to be amazing, but we do lack squad depth in some positions.

You are right that the Liverpool game is just ONE game, but wouldn't it be lovely to get a win and give everybody a nice confidence boost, hopefully setting the tone for the season. You are totally pragmatic in saying better to build a strong team slowly, but in this division team and squad deficiencies are punished. So I just hope we have enough depth to cover injuries etc.

I think Forster will surprise some and claim the No 1 shirt quickly. He's got some great attributes and will be working with a coach he's worked with before.

My worry is that we get hammered, the press make a hullabaloo and start painting us as relegation certs. After this summer they would love the story to be we shot ourselves in the foot this summer.

For me we couldn't have done better than Koeman, the future's bright in that department. I have to be honest and say that I reckon Poch is, unfortunately, going to do a great job at Spurs. Top six this year for them. I'd be over the moon if we could finish in the top 12. How about you?
Agree sadly that Spurs will do well. I'm going to try to minimise my natural bitterness towards the former players because frankly some of them will do OK - no point wasting energy that can be used to support the current Saints team. Hoddle joining QPR means there are five or six former bosses in the Prem now, so it's getting ridiculous anyway.

I'd be happy for us to avoid a relegation struggle this season and create a good platform, but if we can really bring in quality in the next fortnight maybe we can start thinking higher.

Agree Liverpool will be tough, which is why I'd prefer us to hold back some of the new guys and challenge the existing squad to show they are capable of being in and around the team.

I'd say Forster will be first choice immediately but, again, I'd stick with Boruc at Anfield. Reason being if we perform well and get a result it is a bonus, but should be be beaten we can have the confidence of knowing we have three or four quality additions to come in for the next game.

Also means the existing players know they've not been immediately jettisoned, which is a good thing anyway.
Good points!

Especially about starting Artur for Liverpool. I know where you're coming from with the not wasting energy on bitterness towards the jumpees, but Lovren is the exception for me. He handled things in a classless way.

Do you bump into things a lot? Always looking back. Far, far back.

I guess that's the only real direction you can bare looking in without breaking down crying, so I understand it.

Mind you, as you're from Portsmouth I can see why you'd have one eye on your @rse all the time.

How many local players play for poopey? You should think before you open your fish shaped mouth.
Any decent Poopey born players move on asap....but they are getting thinner on the ground by the season.
7 locals in the squad this year.

Probably a lot more than any other regional team
Seven locals with 32 eyes between them - you must be proud.
That would be 21. Another thread regular who didn't sit and learn at school.
Ha, ha. Did I specify how many eyes you guys have? I thought it was random. But I see you are confirming it is three per person. Thank you. The gift that just keeps on giving. Hilarious.

As he has no Premier League experience, only played for Romanian clubs and country, and reported elsewhere as having a muscle injury then don't see him being ready for Anfield in a less than a week.
I think he will provide welcome competition for the CB role, rather than being automatic first choice alongside Jose.

You decide
Of course any person or club has to be assessed on what it does badly as well as what it does well - a roll of dishonour as well as honour.

Any sporting team or historical figure can have their achievements wiped from memory by the bad stuff. Just ask Lance Armstrong, Tony Blair, Jimmy Saville, Cromwell, Gary Glitter, Ben Johnson, Rolf Harris, Pompey.

No, I believe if you asked any average person in the street what the words Portsmouth Football Club mean to them it wouldn't be positive.

Essentially you are already down in history as a cautionary tale of what can go wrong if you spend beyond your means - that's it, nothing more. Everything else may as well have never happened.

FFS they've even written the financial fair play rules in your honour.

Well I suppose it secures your place in history if that's what you're after.

So you think we are bringing in someone to be 'as good' as Yoshida and Hoover? None of us have seen the guy play FFS. On that basis I'm not going to say he's brilliant, but I'm not going to make any judgement on him. You could have said exactly the same about Lovren. If he signs let's judge the guy on his performances, not in a 10 minute scan of the internet.

Were you actually born to see your solitary triumph, or did you just read about it in old newspaper cuttings
Poopey are like Liverpool still living in the past.
I see what you are trying to say, but Pompey are NOTHING LIKE Liverpool. Liverpool have a realistic chance of actually winning something again in the next 100 years.
Winning fairly or buying like the skates?

Not judging him at all. Just saying Rojo would be an automatic choice, but Gardos will need to prove himself before displacing Yoshida who I rate fairly highly. My main point is that it's a big ask for any one to step straight in to a key role in the centre of defence.

You are truly living in the past.

The fans bought the club, the ground, the training facilities, academy training facilities (something your fans will probably never do). No concerns about money, no need to sell any players (unlike you club), no concerns about the future (unlike your cub). The fans will decide our future.

Your owner is selling all of her businesses, what is next? Your club? Next time you may not have any young talent worth millions though.

How many local players play for poopey? You should think before you open your fish shaped mouth.
Any decent Poopey born players move on asap....but they are getting thinner on the ground by the season.
7 locals in the squad this year.

Probably a lot more than any other regional team
Seven locals with 32 eyes between them - you must be proud.
That would be 21. Another thread regular who didn't sit and learn at school.
Ha, ha. Did I specify how many eyes you guys have? I thought it was random. But I see you are confirming it is three per person. Thank you. The gift that just keeps on giving. Hilarious.
As I thought, some of you haven't got a jap-eye.

You decide
Of course any person or club has to be assessed on what it does badly as well as what it does well - a roll of dishonour as well as honour.

Any sporting team or historical figure can have their achievements wiped from memory by the bad stuff. Just ask Lance Armstrong, Tony Blair, Jimmy Saville, Cromwell, Gary Glitter, Ben Johnson, Rolf Harris, Pompey.

No, I believe if you asked any average person in the street what the words Portsmouth Football Club mean to them it wouldn't be positive.

Essentially you are already down in history as a cautionary tale of what can go wrong if you spend beyond your means - that's it, nothing more. Everything else may as well have never happened.

FFS they've even written the financial fair play rules in your honour.

Well I suppose it secures your place in history if that's what you're after.
You are truly living in the past.

The fans bought the club, the ground, the training facilities, academy training facilities (something your fans will probably never do). No concerns about money, no need to sell any players (unlike you club), no concerns about the future (unlike your cub). The fans will decide our future.

Your owner is selling all of her businesses, what is next? Your club? Next time you may not have any young talent worth millions though.
SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Forster is a GREAT signing and has the potential to become a Saints legend like Shilton.

Liverpool will be a handful on their own patch so we need to get any potential signings in, FAST!
Ah, starting a post with an insult - ever the diplomat Andy.

I think we're still negotiating over Rojo as far as I'm aware and, if not him, I'm confident we'll have someone else lined up.

Rojo in theory sounds ideal though - will be bought as a left back primarily with the option as cover for Florin if needed.

We do need cover for Fonte in my opinion though, or ideally competition if I'm honest.

Let's be honest - bringing players in doesn't necessarily mean they are going to be amazing (Yoshida and Forren are good examples), but we can only hope they are.

Also, I don't think Koeman or the board will be scrambling around panicking about getting players in for Anfield.

Anfield is one game, and always a tough one at that. I'd prefer to use that as a chance for existing players to hold on to the shirts (which is only wise anyway given the lack of training any new players would have) and protect the new guys for the next game at least.

As Koeman said - he bought Forster to be our keeper for five years, not in a scramble to get a strong team for day one.
They've got a better chance of being a good player for us if we buy them than if we let someone else buy them though eh!?
Hold on. Was that a negative comment jls?

As I said, let's see how this pans out. Looks a good player, but if Man Utd are indeed tabling a bid I think you can assume they've made their interest known a long time back, which potentially explains why the negotiations have been somewhat dragged out. I seem to remember Luke Shaw was boasting about going to Man Utd a long time before the bid was received.
Far from it. The only time a player can be a good player for us is if we've purchased him. If we do not purchase him it's not possible for him to be a good player for us. Any purchase is a bit of a gamble - research, experience and inside info just lessens the gamble.

Good post JD and well made point about revised reputations. Pompey are now a by-word for avaricious and corrupt wannabees, who flew too close to the sun, fell to earth, and blamed everyone else but themselves. That's why their disintegration was at least as much as they deserved - I say at least because of those charities and small businesses that got 1p in the £ (have they even got that yet after all those years?), some of whom have gone under as a result; also the tap on the wrists points deductions compared to the punch in the face ones meted out to Luton, Leeds, Bournemouth - and even Saints by comparison, given the level of Pompey's debt and deceit. And that's why Pompey are universally loathed, far outside Southampton's borders, and their eventual drop into the abyss will be cheered by all football supporters.

How many local players play for poopey? You should think before you open your fish shaped mouth.
Any decent Poopey born players move on asap....but they are getting thinner on the ground by the season.
7 locals in the squad this year.

Probably a lot more than any other regional team
Seven locals with 32 eyes between them - you must be proud.
That would be 21. Another thread regular who didn't sit and learn at school.
Ha, ha. Did I specify how many eyes you guys have? I thought it was random. But I see you are confirming it is three per person. Thank you. The gift that just keeps on giving. Hilarious.
As I thought, some of you haven't got a jap-eye.

It explains a a lot.
Not in our mouth.....like you seem to
Explains everything
We are indeed big, but not that big.

That's rich coming from someone who's club went bankrupt twice in two years! We know that, but have to accept a slow start this season following the multiple departures over the summer.

Of course any person or club has to be assessed on what it does badly as well as what it does well - a roll of dishonour as well as honour.

Any sporting team or historical figure can have their achievements wiped from memory by the bad stuff. Just ask Lance Armstrong, Tony Blair, Jimmy Saville, Cromwell, Gary Glitter, Ben Johnson, Rolf Harris, Pompey.

No, I believe if you asked any average person in the street what the words Portsmouth Football Club mean to them it wouldn't be positive.

Essentially you are already down in history as a cautionary tale of what can go wrong if you spend beyond your means - that's it, nothing more. Everything else may as well have never happened.

FFS they've even written the financial fair play rules in your honour.

Well I suppose it secures your place in history if that's what you're after.
You are truly living in the past.

The fans bought the club, the ground, the training facilities, academy training facilities (something your fans will probably never do). No concerns about money, no need to sell any players (unlike you club), no concerns about the future (unlike your cub). The fans will decide our future.

Your owner is selling all of her businesses, what is next? Your club? Next time you may not have any young talent worth millions though.
Tesco's will decide your future when it all goes belly up again.....which it will.......tick tock

sment. You're basically like a walking quiz question: name the only club to go bankrupt in England's top division. Everything else is immaterial because nobody cares and nobody is watching. Literally.

If you want an honest response, yes it was very special to every single Saints supporter in the World, it means more because Markus Liebherr was there to taste success with the Club he had save from disaster, I can't expect you to understand how important it was to us, it has given us a taste for more of the same. We could have taken 75,000 fans if they had allowed us to, but I reckon there were at least 55,000 Saints fans inside of Wembley on that day. It may not be the biggest Cup in the list, but it was our day and no one on earth was going to take it away from us. Perhaps one day you might make it, if you do make the most of it. It is history for us now, but we have to move on.

If you want an honest response, yes it was very special to every single Saints supporter in the World, it means more because Markus Liebherr was there to taste success with the Club he had save from disaster, I can't expect you to understand how important it was to us, it has given us a taste for more of the same. We could have taken 75,000 fans if they had allowed us to, but I reckon there were at least 55,000 Saints fans inside of Wembley on that day. It may not be the biggest Cup in the list, but it was our day and no one on earth was going to take it away from us. Perhaps one day you might make it, if you do make the most of it. It is history for us now, but we have to move on.
"saved" ?

Yes. A moment for you all to treasure. Did you paint the town Red?

You decide
Of course any person or club has to be assessed on what it does badly as well as what it does well - a roll of dishonour as well as honour.

Any sporting team or historical figure can have their achievements wiped from memory by the bad stuff. Just ask Lance Armstrong, Tony Blair, Jimmy Saville, Cromwell, Gary Glitter, Ben Johnson, Rolf Harris, Pompey.

No, I believe if you asked any average person in the street what the words Portsmouth Football Club mean to them it wouldn't be positive.

Essentially you are already down in history as a cautionary tale of what can go wrong if you spend beyond your means - that's it, nothing more. Everything else may as well have never happened.

FFS they've even written the financial fair play rules in your honour.

Well I suppose it secures your place in history if that's what you're after.
You are truly living in the past.

The fans bought the club, the ground, the training facilities, academy training facilities (something your fans will probably never do). No concerns about money, no need to sell any players (unlike you club), no concerns about the future (unlike your cub). The fans will decide our future.

Your owner is selling all of her businesses, what is next? Your club? Next time you may not have any young talent worth millions though.
Yeah, and Rolf Harris just released a new single. Listen, it doesn't matter what you've done since (again literally) - you are only going to be remembered for one thing. Once you've disgraced yourself in the way you have there is no way back.

You can delude yourself and deny it like Rolf, or accept the truth.

I think for your own dignity and peace of mind you should just come clean. And that could start by standing up here among friends (well us anyway) and come right out with it: 'Hi, my name is Blue means Success and my football club is a national embarrassment'.

Get it out there. You'll feel the weight lift of your shoulders.

You decide
And all largely sixty years ago - Saints have been and will continue to be the dominant club in Hampshire since the 1960s.
Don't forget you last bit of excitement - 38years ago
2010 JPT, 2011 promotion and 2012 promotion..... isn't 38 years ago?

First Class Competitions ;
Played 70 , Saints wins 34, skunts wins 21, draws 15
FA Cup Games 5 - Saints wins 4, skunts wins 1

Only one team in Hampshire......FACT - (see above)
COYR FOADP
All official competitions, Pompey 62, Carrot Crunchers 56, Draws 21

All Top flight meetings. Pompey 3, Carrot-boys 2, Draws 1

Was the Paint Pot really exciting?
For those that were there the "Paint Pot" was an exciting day out. But we don't gloat about it!
You list your successes, but that was all some time ago, and I appreciate the fact you dwell there as that's all you can do.
More relevant is the here and now: we are in the Premier League, we are financially secure, we have an academy that's the envy of most and renowned in the football world.
We had a tough summer, but despite the departures (and we made a financial killing!) we attracted a top class manager/coach!
We've got a very exciting future, we are thinking of European football (no not this season fool!). Now, your circumstances and future? A rhetorical question by the way! Look it up!

Yes thanks. Which must be galling when you don't even have a pot to p1ss in. As I said, to anyone outside Pompey you are and will forever be saddled with the words failure/bankrupt/sad /liquidated/embarras sment. You're basically like a walking quiz question: name the only club to go bankrupt in England's top division. Everything else is immaterial because nobody cares and nobody is watching. Literally.
You're a right laugh JD. 2000 at Exeter, of which 400 sitting in the home stands. Couldn't fit any more in.
I think you've given us the laugh - read what your wrote!. We got a 32,000 sell-out against Exeter at St Mary's when in L1. Pompey couldn't even fill their 19,000 capacity for Man U and Arsenal in the Prem. As for how many fans what Saints took away in L2 - it's all hypothetical as we've never sunk that low.

We sold out our allocation for Exeter away in L1 which was 1500 if I remember correctly. We had to be balloted to get tickets as so many wanted them. I was one of the lucky ones.

If you want an honest response, yes it was very special to every single Saints supporter in the World, it means more because Markus Liebherr was there to taste success with the Club he had save from disaster, I can't expect you to understand how important it was to us, it has given us a taste for more of the same. We could have taken 75,000 fans if they had allowed us to, but I reckon there were at least 55,000 Saints fans inside of Wembley on that day. It may not be the biggest Cup in the list, but it was our day and no one on earth was going to take it away from us. Perhaps one day you might make it, if you do make the most of it. It is history for us now, but we have to move on.
"saved" ?

Yes. A moment for you all to treasure. Did you paint the town Red?
Some of us had a very good time after, if that is what you mean, worst problem was taking over four hours to get from the Stadium to the start of the M3. What a waste of drinking time.......... I just found that missing "d" it fell off of the page.

Who is the 2nd best team in Hampshire, Team A or Team B?

You decide
Of course any person or club has to be assessed on what it does badly as well as what it does well - a roll of dishonour as well as honour.

Any sporting team or historical figure can have their achievements wiped from memory by the bad stuff. Just ask Lance Armstrong, Tony Blair, Jimmy Saville, Cromwell, Gary Glitter, Ben Johnson, Rolf Harris, Pompey.

No, I believe if you asked any average person in the street what the words Portsmouth Football Club mean to them it wouldn't be positive.

Essentially you are already down in history as a cautionary tale of what can go wrong if you spend beyond your means - that's it, nothing more. Everything else may as well have never happened.

FFS they've even written the financial fair play rules in your honour.

Well I suppose it secures your place in history if that's what you're after.
You are truly living in the past.

The fans bought the club, the ground, the training facilities, academy training facilities (something your fans will probably never do). No concerns about money, no need to sell any players (unlike you club), no concerns about the future (unlike your cub). The fans will decide our future.

Your owner is selling all of her businesses, what is next? Your club? Next time you may not have any young talent worth millions though.
Yeah, and Rolf Harris just released a new single. Listen, it doesn't matter what you've done since (again literally) - you are only going to be remembered for one thing. Once you've disgraced yourself in the way you have there is no way back.

You can delude yourself and deny it like Rolf, or accept the truth.

I think for your own dignity and peace of mind you should just come clean. And that could start by standing up here among friends (well us anyway) and come right out with it: 'Hi, my name is Blue means Success and my football club is a national embarrassment'.

Get it out there. You'll feel the weight lift of your shoulders.
Soton will always be remembered the world over for Ali Dia.

That was your word class moment. Nobody can take that away from your club. Not even Benny Hill in his prime could have written a sketch that good.

And all largely sixty years ago - Saints have been and will continue to be the dominant club in Hampshire since the 1960s.
Don't forget you last bit of excitement - 38years ago
2010 JPT, 2011 promotion and 2012 promotion..... isn't 38 years ago? 5-1, 5-1, 5-1, 5-2, 4-0, 4-2, 3-0, 3-0, 3-0, 2-0, 2-0 Saints wins in all competitions since 1920 ( Professional football) by 2 or more goals ( 11) ........Oops!...skun ts (7) First Class Competitions ; Played 70 , Saints wins 34, skunts wins 21, draws 15 FA Cup Games 5 - Saints wins 4, skunts wins 1 Only one team in Hampshire......FACT - (see above) COYR FOADP
All official competitions, Pompey 62, Carrot Crunchers 56, Draws 21 All Top flight meetings. Pompey 3, Carrot-boys 2, Draws 1 Was the Paint Pot really exciting?
Yes thanks. Which must be galling when you don't even have a pot to p1ss in. As I said, to anyone outside Pompey you are and will forever be saddled with the words failure/bankrupt/sad /liquidated/embarras sment. You're basically like a walking quiz question: name the only club to go bankrupt in England's top division. Everything else is immaterial because nobody cares and nobody is watching. Literally.
You're a right laugh JD. 2000 at Exeter, of which 400 sitting in the home stands. Couldn't fit any more in.
I think you've given us the laugh - read what your wrote!. We got a 32,000 sell-out against Exeter at St Mary's when in L1. Pompey couldn't even fill their 19,000 capacity for Man U and Arsenal in the Prem. As for how many fans what Saints took away in L2 - it's all hypothetical as we've never sunk that low.
We sold out our allocation for Exeter away in L1 which was 1500 if I remember correctly. We had to be balloted to get tickets as so many wanted them. I was one of the lucky ones.
As for away fans sitting in the home ends...no chance. He's full of sh1t
He's also turned this thread into an incredibly long, embarrassing obituary to his football club. Personally I like it when Pompey fans come on here - just puts everything into perspective and makes you appreciate how lucky you are.

Of course any person or club has to be assessed on what it does badly as well as what it does well - a roll of dishonour as well as honour.

Any sporting team or historical figure can have their achievements wiped from memory by the bad stuff. Just ask Lance Armstrong, Tony Blair, Jimmy Saville, Cromwell, Gary Glitter, Ben Johnson, Rolf Harris, Pompey.

No, I believe if you asked any average person in the street what the words Portsmouth Football Club mean to them it wouldn't be positive.

Essentially you are already down in history as a cautionary tale of what can go wrong if you spend beyond your means - that's it, nothing more. Everything else may as well have never happened.

FFS they've even written the financial fair play rules in your honour.

Well I suppose it secures your place in history if that's what you're after.
You are truly living in the past.

The fans bought the club, the ground, the training facilities, academy training facilities (something your fans will probably never do). No concerns about money, no need to sell any players (unlike you club), no concerns about the future (unlike your cub). The fans will decide our future.

Your owner is selling all of her businesses, what is next? Your club? Next time you may not have any young talent worth millions though.
Yeah, and Rolf Harris just released a new single. Listen, it doesn't matter what you've done since (again literally) - you are only going to be remembered for one thing. Once you've disgraced yourself in the way you have there is no way back.

You can delude yourself and deny it like Rolf, or accept the truth.

I think for your own dignity and peace of mind you should just come clean. And that could start by standing up here among friends (well us anyway) and come right out with it: 'Hi, my name is Blue means Success and my football club is a national embarrassment'.

Get it out there. You'll feel the weight lift of your shoulders.
Soton will always be remembered the world over for Ali Dia.

That was your word class moment. Nobody can take that away from your club. Not even Benny Hill in his prime could have written a sketch that good.
Blame Mr Sourness not the Club. I was there in May 1976 for the event we are most remembered for, the only one good thing ever to come out of Portsmouth other than the M27 was Bobby Stokes God Bless him.

That's rich coming from someone who's club went bankrupt twice in two years! We know that, but have to accept a slow start this season following the multiple departures over the summer.

BTW I'm looking forward to seeing Eastleigh become the second best club in Hampshire! ;-)
The Spitfires will move above the Skates over the next two years!
The Skates are finished and are no longer serious rivals.

Who is the 2nd best team in Hampshire, Team A or Team B?

You decide
Of course any person or club has to be assessed on what it does badly as well as what it does well - a roll of dishonour as well as honour.

Any sporting team or historical figure can have their achievements wiped from memory by the bad stuff. Just ask Lance Armstrong, Tony Blair, Jimmy Saville, Cromwell, Gary Glitter, Ben Johnson, Rolf Harris, Pompey.

No, I believe if you asked any average person in the street what the words Portsmouth Football Club mean to them it wouldn't be positive.

Essentially you are already down in history as a cautionary tale of what can go wrong if you spend beyond your means - that's it, nothing more. Everything else may as well have never happened.

FFS they've even written the financial fair play rules in your honour.

Well I suppose it secures your place in history if that's what you're after.
You are truly living in the past.

The fans bought the club, the ground, the training facilities, academy training facilities (something your fans will probably never do). No concerns about money, no need to sell any players (unlike you club), no concerns about the future (unlike your cub). The fans will decide our future.

Your owner is selling all of her businesses, what is next? Your club? Next time you may not have any young talent worth millions though.
Yeah, and Rolf Harris just released a new single. Listen, it doesn't matter what you've done since (again literally) - you are only going to be remembered for one thing. Once you've disgraced yourself in the way you have there is no way back.

You can delude yourself and deny it like Rolf, or accept the truth.

I think for your own dignity and peace of mind you should just come clean. And that could start by standing up here among friends (well us anyway) and come right out with it: 'Hi, my name is Blue means Success and my football club is a national embarrassment'.

Get it out there. You'll feel the weight lift of your shoulders.
Soton will always be remembered the world over for Ali Dia.

That was your word class moment. Nobody can take that away from your club. Not even Benny Hill in his prime could have written a sketch that good.
Blame Mr Sourness not the Club. I was there in May 1976 for the event we are most remembered for, the only one good thing ever to come out of Portsmouth other than the M27 was Bobby Stokes God Bless him.
Nelson?
FFS, what century are you living in? Ali Dia was a funny incident that we all laugh along with, but sorry, looks like we're using nuclear warheads while you're armed with a pea shooter. It's good that you come on here to try, but might be time to retire gracefully - your arguments are paper thin and you're getting obliterated.

You decide
And all largely sixty years ago - Saints have been and will continue to be the dominant club in Hampshire since the 1960s.
Don't forget you last bit of excitement - 38years ago
2010 JPT, 2011 promotion and 2012 promotion..... isn't 38 years ago?
5-1, 5-1, 5-1, 5-2, 4-0, 4-2, 3-0, 3-0, 3-0, 2-0, 2-0 Saints wins in all competitions since 1920 ( Professional football) by 2 or more goals ( 11) ........Oops!...skun


ts (7)
First Class Competitions ;
Played 70 , Saints wins 34, skunts wins 21, draws 15
FA Cup Games 5 - Saints wins 4, skunts wins 1

Only one team in Hampshire......FACT - (see above)
COYR FOADP
All official competitions, Pompey 62, Carrot Crunchers 56, Draws 21

All Top flight meetings. Pompey 3, Carrot-boys 2, Draws 1

Was the Paint Pot really exciting?
So we've only met you 6 times in the top flght,despite us being in it for 30 of the last 37 years?
What does that say about where your 'little' team has been?
You had success before 1950, since then you've been a lower league team, who had a couple of (illegally funded) days in the sunshine, but that was over again before it started. Nobody under the age of 80 is going to say you're the bigger club.

And all largely sixty years ago - Saints have been and will continue to be the dominant club in Hampshire since the 1960s.
Don't forget you last bit of excitement - 38years ago
2010 JPT, 2011 promotion and 2012 promotion..... isn't 38 years ago?
5-1, 5-1, 5-1, 5-2, 4-0, 4-2, 3-0, 3-0, 3-0, 2-0, 2-0 Saints wins in all competitions since 1920 ( Professional football) by 2 or more goals ( 11) ........Oops!...skun



ts (7)
First Class Competitions ;
Played 70 , Saints wins 34, skunts wins 21, draws 15
FA Cup Games 5 - Saints wins 4, skunts wins 1

Only one team in Hampshire......FACT - (see above)
COYR FOADP
All official competitions, Pompey 62, Carrot Crunchers 56, Draws 21

All Top flight meetings. Pompey 3, Carrot-boys 2, Draws 1

Was the Paint Pot really exciting?
So we've only met you 6 times in the top flght,despite us being in it for 30 of the last 37 years?
What does that say about where your 'little' team has been?
You had success before 1950, since then you've been a lower league team, who had a couple of (illegally funded) days in the sunshine, but that was over again before it started. Nobody under the age of 80 is going to say you're the bigger club.
We were waiting for you from 1932 to 1959; but you never showed up.

Only people over 45 can remember something memorable for Soton fc apart from the day of Ali Dia

Who is the 2nd best team in Hampshire, Team A or Team B?

You decide
Of course any person or club has to be assessed on what it does badly as well as what it does well - a roll of dishonour as well as honour.

Any sporting team or historical figure can have their achievements wiped from memory by the bad stuff. Just ask Lance Armstrong, Tony Blair, Jimmy Saville, Cromwell, Gary Glitter, Ben Johnson, Rolf Harris, Pompey.

No, I believe if you asked any average person in the street what the words Portsmouth Football Club mean to them it wouldn't be positive.

Essentially you are already down in history as a cautionary tale of what can go wrong if you spend beyond your means - that's it, nothing more. Everything else may as well have never happened.

FFS they've even written the financial fair play rules in your honour.

Well I suppose it secures your place in history if that's what you're after.
You are truly living in the past.

The fans bought the club, the ground, the training facilities, academy training facilities (something your fans will probably never do). No concerns about money, no need to sell any players (unlike you club), no concerns about the future (unlike your cub). The fans will decide our future.

Your owner is selling all of her businesses, what is next? Your club? Next time you may not have any young talent worth millions though.
Yeah, and Rolf Harris just released a new single. Listen, it doesn't matter what you've done since (again literally) - you are only going to be remembered for one thing. Once you've disgraced yourself in the way you have there is no way back.

You can delude yourself and deny it like Rolf, or accept the truth.

I think for your own dignity and peace of mind you should just come clean. And that could start by standing up here among friends (well us anyway) and come right out with it: 'Hi, my name is Blue means Success and my football club is a national embarrassment'.

Get it out there. You'll feel the weight lift of your shoulders.
Soton will always be remembered the world over for Ali Dia.

That was your word class moment. Nobody can take that away from your club. Not even Benny Hill in his prime could have written a sketch that good.
Blame Mr Sourness not the Club. I was there in May 1976 for the event we are most remembered for, the only one good thing ever to come out of Portsmouth other than the M27 was Bobby Stokes God Bless him.
Nelson?
I count myself accursed that I was not at The Dell the day Ali Dia became a Saints’ legend. We should have an annual Ali Dia day. If you can’t laugh at yourself you shouldn’t support a football club.
This season it will fall on the scheduled date for the League Cup third round. Given the way we went about this competition last season, it might be an idea to invite Graeme Souness to select the team and Ali Dia to play in it; or at least kick the game off.

Ian Murry ( editor ) should do his job and get his reporters on the ball for a change and not pick up the scraps from the real papers the next day.
Makes me sick that our so called local paper only writes about ex managers and ex players then gets old news printed as though they have to.
Wake up Ian Murry get behind the southampton board and promote the saints in good light in real time or p@ss off and join the news where you live!!

Why do you bother reading it then if you already know everything! Or do you just like to whinge?
I like to whinge. It fills the gaps in waiting for actual news to arrive. You know when you are aproaching the truth when you start to bore even yourself.

The Echo Journos are Lazy, they used to be good when was a kid.

Cant remember the last time they actually spoke to someone relevent for a an informed opinion let alone a player. I guess that's the club policy.

Anyway whinge over...im off to look for some elses opinion to disagree with.

Why are you talking about the 1930s and then saying our achievements can only be remembered by people over 45?

I'm talking nationwide people in the street, casual football fans and I'm sorry but it is unquestionable that 95% of people, if asked to say what Portsmouth FC means to them would list a number of words such as failure, financial meltdown, liquidated, debt, sad, embarrassing. That's not Saints fans, just anyone who has any sort of idea about football.

I wager only one or two if that would say successful or have any knowledge you once won something in the 1960s.

If you asked the same question about Saints it would be a wide mix. A small handful of cheeky people would probably say Dia, many more would say Le Tissier, FA Cup (because it was a famous, well known win against quality opposition), Shearer, Ball, Channon, Keegan, Bale, youth development, Premier League etc etc.

They're all doing it because no one digs their heels in and makes the player regret it. Look at how many on here were for instantly selling Lovren when he indicated he wouldn't train. Give in to a hijacker and you've instantly created the next one. First incident I can remember was when we gave into Kenwyne Jones.

Seven locals with 32 eyes between them - you must be proud.

A small handful of cheeky people would probably say Dia, many more would say Le Tissier, FA Cup (because it was a famous, well known win against quality opposition), Shearer, Ball, Channon, Keegan, Bale, youth development, Premier League etc etc.
Sorry, did In say 1960s - rewind that a couple of decades,

**Team B honours**
FA cup champions x 1
3rd Tier Champions x 1

Who is the 2nd best team in Hampshire, Team A or Team B?

You decide
Of course any person or club has to be assessed on what it does badly as well as what it does well - a roll of dishonour as well as honour.

Any sporting team or historical figure can have their achievements wiped from memory by the bad stuff. Just ask Lance Armstrong, Tony Blair, Jimmy Saville, Cromwell, Gary Glitter, Ben Johnson, Rolf Harris, Pompey.

No, I believe if you asked any average person in the street what the words Portsmouth Football Club mean to them it wouldn't be positive.

Essentially you are already down in history as a cautionary tale of what can go wrong if you spend beyond your means - that's it, nothing more. Everything else may as well have never happened.

FFS they've even written the financial fair play rules in your honour.

Well I suppose it secures your place in history if that's what you're after.
You are truly living in the past.

The fans bought the club, the ground, the training facilities, academy training facilities (something your fans will probably never do). No concerns about money, no need to sell any players (unlike you club), no concerns about the future (unlike your cub). The fans will decide our future.

Your owner is selling all of her businesses, what is next? Your club? Next time you may not have any young talent worth millions though.
Yeah, and Rolf Harris just released a new single. Listen, it doesn't matter what you've done since (again literally) - you are only going to be remembered for one thing. Once you've disgraced yourself in the way you have there is no way back.

You can delude yourself and deny it like Rolf, or accept the truth.

I think for your own dignity and peace of mind you should just come clean. And that could start by standing up here among friends (well us anyway) and come right out with it: 'Hi, my name is Blue means Success and my football club is a national embarrassment'.

Get it out there. You'll feel the weight lift of your shoulders.
Soton will always be remembered the world over for Ali Dia.

That was your word class moment. Nobody can take that away from your club. Not even Benny Hill in his prime could have written a sketch that good.
Blame Mr Sourness not the Club. I was there in May 1976 for the event we are most remembered for, the only one good thing ever to come out of Portsmouth other than the M27 was Bobby Stokes God Bless him.
Nelson?
I count myself accursed that I was not at The Dell the day Ali Dia became a Saints’ legend. We should have an annual Ali Dia day. If you can’t laugh at yourself you shouldn’t support a football club.
This season it will fall on the scheduled date for the League Cup third round. Given the way we went about this competition last season, it might be an idea to invite Graeme Souness to select the team and Ali Dia to play in it; or at least kick the game off.
A great idea. You should start a petition. Historic dates are sometimes only remembered when a few people have made an effort to mark them out

They're all doing it because no one digs their heels in and makes the player regret it. Look at how many on here were for instantly selling Lovren when he indicated he wouldn't train. Give in to a hijacker and you've instantly created the next one. First incident I can remember was when we gave into Kenwyne Jones.
Yes. Indeed history is littered with 'ambitious' former Saints players who are now plying their trade in the lower leagues or have gone absolutely nowhere. Maybe the Echo can do their little 'former player' updates on Kenwyne, Best, Surman, Blackstock and a fair few others.

And all largely sixty years ago - Saints have been and will continue to be the dominant club in Hampshire since the 1960s.
Don't forget you last bit of excitement - 38years ago
2010 JPT, 2011 promotion and 2012 promotion..... isn't 38 years ago?
5-1, 5-1, 5-1, 5-2, 4-0, 4-2, 3-0, 3-0, 3-0, 2-0, 2-0 Saints wins in all competitions since 1920 ( Professional football) by 2 or more goals ( 11) ........Oops!...skun





ts (7)
First Class Competitions ;
Played 70 , Saints wins 34, skunts wins 21, draws 15
FA Cup Games 5 - Saints wins 4, skunts wins 1

Only one team in Hampshire......FACT - (see above)
COYR FOADP
All official competitions, Pompey 62, Carrot Crunchers 56, Draws 21

All Top flight meetings. Pompey 3, Carrot-boys 2, Draws 1

Was the Paint Pot really exciting?
So we've only met you 6 times in the top flght,despite us being in it for 30 of the last 37 years?
What does that say about where your 'little' team has been?
You had success before 1950, since then you've been a lower league team, who had a couple of (illegally funded) days in the sunshine, but that was over again before it started. Nobody under the age of 80 is going to say you're the bigger club.
We were waiting for you from 1932 to 1959; but you never showed up.

Only people over 45 can remember something memorable for Soton fc apart from the day of Ali Dia
Why are you talking about the 1930s and then saying our achievements can only be remembered by people over 45?

I'm talking nationwide people in the street, casual football fans and I'm sorry but it is unquestionable that 95% of people, if asked to say what Portsmouth FC means to them would list a number of words such as failure, financial meltdown, liquidated, debt, sad, embarrassing.

2008? Not that long ago. I mentioned the earlier dates - as if Soton had turned up for a few years, the top flight meetings could have been more

Did Best, Surman and Blackstock throw their toys out of the pram in order to get a move? I'm very sure Surman didn't, and I very much doubt the other two did either.

Who is the 2nd best team in Hampshire, Team A or Team B?

You decide
And all largely sixty years ago - Saints have been and will continue to be the dominant club in Hampshire since the 1960s.
Don't forget you last bit of excitement - 38years ago
2010 JPT, 2011 promotion and 2012 promotion..... isn't 38 years ago?
5-1, 5-1, 5-1, 5-2, 4-0, 4-2, 3-0, 3-0, 3-0, 2-0, 2-0 Saints wins in all competitions since 1920 ( Professional football) by 2 or more goals ( 11) ........Oops!...skun






ts (7)
First Class Competitions ;
Played 70 , Saints wins 34, skunts wins 21, draws 15
FA Cup Games 5 - Saints wins 4, skunts wins 1

Only one team in Hampshire......FACT - (see above)
COYR FOADP
All official competitions, Pompey 62, Carrot Crunchers 56, Draws 21

All Top flight meetings. Pompey 3, Carrot-boys 2, Draws 1

Was the Paint Pot really exciting?
So we've only met you 6 times in the top flght,despite us being in it for 30 of the last 37 years?
What does that say about where your 'little' team has been?
You had success before 1950, since then you've been a lower league team, who had a couple of (illegally funded) days in the sunshine, but that was over again before it started. Nobody under the age of 80 is going to say you're the bigger club.
We were waiting for you from 1932 to 1959; but you never showed up.

Only people over 45 can remember something memorable for Soton fc apart from the day of Ali Dia
Why are you talking about the 1930s and then saying our achievements can only be remembered by people over 45?

I'm talking nationwide people in the street, casual football fans and I'm sorry but it is unquestionable that 95% of people, if asked to say what Portsmouth FC means to them would list a number of words such as failure, financial meltdown, liquidated, debt, sad, embarrassing. That's not Saints fans, just anyone who has any sort of idea about football.

I wager only one or two if that would say successful or have any knowledge you once won something in the 1960s.

If you asked the same question about Saints it would be a wide mix. A small handful of cheeky people would probably say Dia, many more would say Le Tissier, FA Cup (because it was a famous, well known win against quality opposition), Shearer, Ball, Channon, Keegan, Bale, youth development, Premier League etc etc.
2008? Not that long ago. I mentioned the earlier dates - as if Soton had turned up for a few years, the top flight meetings could have been more
If you hadn't stolen & cheated they would be even less. No one likes a charity & small business thief. I'm sure they haven't forgotten & would like their money back in full.

They're all doing it because no one digs their heels in and makes the player regret it. Look at how many on here were for instantly selling Lovren when he indicated he wouldn't train. Give in to a hijacker and you've instantly created the next one. First incident I can remember was when we gave into Kenwyne Jones.
Yes. Indeed history is littered with 'ambitious' former Saints players who are now plying their trade in the lower leagues or have gone absolutely nowhere. Maybe the Echo can do their little 'former player' updates on Kenwyne, Best, Surman, Blackstock and a fair few others.
Sounds like another Lovren lucky escape! We don't need anymore posers who think they are too good for Saints

You might have a long wait , Saints don't want to touch all that lovely money they got from selling the team, if they can get away with it.
You say that but if it were true why buy a keeper for £10m when the same four keepers from last season are still here, including the very able Boruc?
That just proves my point, that they don't know what they are doing.
They couldn't manage a p*ssup in a brewery, that's for sure, never mind running a Premier League club successfully, with drive and ambition. You'll be lucky if Saints escape the relegation zone this season.
You said Saints don't want to spend the money so it doesn't prove your point, it disproves your point.
If Saints still have 4 goal keepers on their books who served them well last season when they finished 8th in the Premier League, why waste £ 10 million on another one ( unless of course , your going to let one or to go before the window closes ).

What Saints need urgently is a top striker and at least 2 very good defensive players but that seems to be beyond Saints management ( they simply don't want to part with any real cash ). In order to fill these vital positions, the management will have to spend a substantial amount in order to get players of proven ability.

Saints management will no doubt try and get loan players of a lower ability ( they have done it many times this year, so I think they will try to get away with it again ).

The whole mess this year, stinks of gross incompetence !

I'm talking nationwide people in the street, casual football fans and I'm sorry but it is unquestionable that 95% of people, if asked to say what Portsmouth FC means to them would list a number of words such as failure, financial meltdown, liquidated, debt, sad, embarrassing.

I wager only one or two if that would say successful or have any knowledge you once won something in the 1960s.

If you asked the same question about Saints it would be a wide mix.

The owners nicked the money, and the fans paid it back in full after a collection, or would you rather forget that little detail.

When we went up, we were a completely solvent club under Mandaric.

Oh dear. Touched a nerve there. PFC is a dirty word wherever you go, so this is a part of your history you can't airbrush. Paying back 2p in the pound is not paying it all back. Your reputation is in the gutter...........

They're all doing it because no one digs their heels in and makes the player regret it. Look at how many on here were for instantly selling Lovren when he indicated he wouldn't train. Give in to a hijacker and you've instantly created the next one. First incident I can remember was when we gave into Kenwyne Jones.
What was the deal with Bale, I seem to remember I was in the usual happy clapper mode thinking he wouldn't leave! He had a torrid time when he first started playing for Spuds, they couldn't buy a win when he played, but he was good enough to win them over, but having done that he ran away!

Who is the 2nd best team in Hampshire, Team A or Team B?

You decide
Of course any person or club has to be assessed on what it does badly as well as what it does well - a roll of dishonour as well as honour.

Any sporting team or historical figure can have their achievements wiped from memory by the bad stuff. Just ask Lance Armstrong, Tony Blair, Jimmy Saville, Cromwell, Gary Glitter, Ben Johnson, Rolf Harris, Pompey.

No, I believe if you asked any average person in the street what the words Portsmouth Football Club mean to them it wouldn't be positive.

Essentially you are already down in history as a cautionary tale of what can go wrong if you spend beyond your means - that's it, nothing more. Everything else may as well have never happened.

FFS they've even written the financial fair play rules in your honour.

Well I suppose it secures your place in history if that's what you're after.
You are truly living in the past.

The fans bought the club, the ground, the training facilities, academy training facilities (something your fans will probably never do). No concerns about money, no need to sell any players (unlike you club), no concerns about the future (unlike your cub). The fans will decide our future.

Your owner is selling all of her businesses, what is next? Your club? Next time you may not have any young talent worth millions though.
Yeah, and Rolf Harris just released a new single. Listen, it doesn't matter what you've done since (again literally) - you are only going to be remembered for one thing. Once you've disgraced yourself in the way you have there is no way back.

You can delude yourself and deny it like Rolf, or accept the truth.

I think for your own dignity and peace of mind you should just come clean. And that could start by standing up here among friends (well us anyway) and come right out with it: 'Hi, my name is Blue means Success and my football club is a national embarrassment'.

Get it out there. You'll feel the weight lift of your shoulders.
Soton will always be remembered the world over for Ali Dia.

That was your word class moment. Nobody can take that away from your club. Not even Benny Hill in his prime could have written a sketch that good.
Blame Mr Sourness not the Club. I was there in May 1976 for the event we are most remembered for, the only one good thing ever to come out of Portsmouth other than the M27 was Bobby Stokes God Bless him.
Nelson?
Mandela? I don't think so.

All official competitions, Pompey 62, Carrot Crunchers 56, Draws 21

All Top flight meetings. Pompey 3, Carrot-boys 2, Draws 1

Was the Paint Pot really exciting?
So we've only met you 6 times in the top flght,despite us being in it for 30 of the last 37 years?

You've got to hand it to this freak, we could do with a few like him. I mean we got a fortune for 5 players this summer and most of us went into panic mode. But here he is, a supporter of what can only be described as a laughing stock, coming on the site of a clearly superior rival who could sell a reserve and use the money to buy their entire club and he's actually bragging. You have to take your hat off to that - some nerve.

Let these words be etched in stone and laughed at in perpetuity.

The Blue ar$ed fly ignores the fact the club is owned by three or maybe four rich bods and the "fans" all own around the equivalent of a postage stamp. The rich bods have in fact invested in land and property in the name of "being a fan", canny lads, when the potential profit margin rises enough the club will be sold and at long last Fratton will get the Tescos it deserves. To prove the point answer this - how do you dispose of your shares? Ebay? Gumtree? Leave them in your will? Oh Dear its like owning an acre of the Moon or having a distant asteroid named after you. Frame the certificate and put it in your loft.. in around 100 years it will be on the Antiques Road Show along with Membership certificates for the Tufty Club. Only people will still remember the Tufty Club.

Yes. Indeed history is littered with 'ambitious' former Saints players who are now plying their trade in the lower leagues or have gone absolutely nowhere. Maybe the Echo can do their little 'former player' updates on Kenwyne, Best, Surman, Blackstock and a fair few others.
Surely a contract is a contract isn't it? You're not gone,till you're gone,otherwise,what'
s the point?
Still,when you dispense with discipline,anarchy fill the vacuum.All this,is just a product of the society we have fallen into,and which we reluctantly find ourselves having to live with nowadays,although on reflection,i suppose its still a lot better than being bombed hounded and shot,by genocidal fanatics.

You're not gone,till you're gone,otherwise,what' s the point? Still,when you dispense with discipline,anarchy fill the vacuum.All this,is just a product of the society we have fallen into,and which we reluctantly find ourselves having to live with nowadays,although on reflection,i suppose its still a lot better than being bombed hounded and shot,by genocidal fanatics.

That's rich coming from someone who's club went bankrupt twice in two years! We know that, but have to accept a slow start this season following the multiple departures over the summer.

BTW I'm looking forward to seeing Eastleigh become the second best club in Hampshire! ;-)
The Spitfires will move above the Skates over the next two years!
The Skates are finished and are no longer serious rivals.
Come on Peterborough! COYR

So we've only met you 6 times in the top flght,despite us being in it for 30 of the last 37 years?
What does that say about where your 'little' team has been?
You had success before 1950, since then you've been a lower league team, who had a couple of (illegally funded) days in the sunshine, but that was over again before it started. Nobody under the age of 80 is going to say you're the bigger club.
We were waiting for you from 1932 to 1959; but you never showed up.

Only people over 45 can remember something memorable for Soton fc apart from the day of Ali Dia
Why are you talking about the 1930s and then saying our achievements can only be remembered by people over 45?

I'm talking nationwide people in the street, casual football fans and I'm sorry but it is unquestionable that 95% of people, if asked to say what Portsmouth
