Portsmouth in danger of not be able to start season warns Trevor Birch

Daily Echo: Pompey 'won't be able to start the season' Pompey 'won't be able to start the season'

THE MAN in charge of crisis hit Pompey says he is doubtful the club will make the start of the season - unless more senior players leave.

Trevor Birch says that more senior players need to leave, including Liam Lawrence, Greg Halford and David Norris.

Currently, Nwanko Kanu is in dispute with the club over money he is entitled to along with Tal Ben Haim and Dave Kitson.

The players are attracting little interest from other clubs, meaning that if the club is to get the wage bill down it will have to come to a deal with the senior squad members.

If the club was to make the players redundant, like it has done non-playing staff such as office workers, it would not be given a golden share and would not be allowed to enter the Football League.

However, potential buyers Portpin and the Pompey Supporters' Trust will not buy the club whilst the big wage earners are still on the books.

If the impasse remains, Mr Birch will be left with no option but to liquidate the company and the football club.

Mr Birch said: "We are just not making quick progress and at this moment in time I am doubtful we will start the season.

"We are having trouble with more or less all the players. A lot of them are not prepared to take any compromise deal over a period of time."

Meanwhile, the club has begun consulting with staff about yet another round of redundancies.

If this was an old nag it would have been shot by now, I just wish they'd sop whining about the -10. If anything they got off lightly compared to some in the past, its time for them to man-up and accept the inevitable.
Go into liquidation and start again with a clean sheet and do what AFC Wimbledon did, now there is a role model for them!.............

Local businesses have lost 10's of thousands putting them in serious financial difficulties, charities have been robbed, HMRC have lost millions, other football clubs who run within their budgets still haven't been paid whats owed.

Players were hero worshipped on southsea common 4 years ago, now the same ones are parasitic scum for demanding what is rightfully theirs.

The list goes on and on, but all we hear is that it's not our fault and we should be let off etc etc...
The rest of football has had enough.

Liquidate now whilst there is still a miniscule amount of dignity left, rebuild and we'll see you sometime in the next decade.

As a born a breed saints supporter I can put hand on heart and say I do not want to see Pompey go into oblivion. I love all the local rivalry and the games are heated which it makes for a great game. Hope to play Pompey and of course saints to win:)

I'm sure there are a some Saints supporters who would like to see you guys get out of this horrible mess, because lets face it we all enjoy the rivalry we like seeing the other team suffer, and if the other team were no longer around then where would the banter come from. However, surely you have to accept some of us are loving seeing Pompey suffer just like some of your lot loved seeing us suffer.

We all suffer from selective memory when it suits.

My memories of our days in administration are of the several PFC supporters who spent their time on this forum wishing us into oblivion, therefore I have no sympathy for you or your fellow fans.
Especially as this is your 2nd administration in 2 years.

As for having class, I suggest you have a chat with the PFC fans, on some forums, who refer to the late Markus Liebherr as "that dead nazi".

Does that sort of comment pass as "class" in Poopey???

Bang on!!

CLASS is the reason we didnt go under and why we were purchased by someone who could spot the CLASSY stadium, CLASSY training ground, CLASSY proven academy,
All in a CLASSY City with CLASS fans.

With regards to us CLASS fans not being suportive of Pompey, i think most of the footballing world is fed up of the yearly administration of your lot, the longer it goes on the more drivel seems to come out.

I see Mr Birch is now trying to get the high earners to take a settlement over 4 years and written into the CVA( can you really blame the players for not accepting this?) They know they will be stitched up like the last lot were from the previous CVA.

Unfortunately, Whilst youre living in the shadow of St Marys and the Classy Premier League outfit of Southampton FC you are never going to attract any serious investment.

Goodnight, Godbless, RIP

A long time fan has foot the bill for this.
He can't be too happy at having to keep paying out extra, everytime a player dropped out of the squad and was replaced by A.N. Other.

After the 0-4 result against the Gibraltar 11, who I am reliably informed gave debuts to 3 Barbary Apes, I would imagine their benefactor is probably wishing he had saved his money.

B-guru. How can you hope for PFC to be back in Div 1 or the NPC in 10 years or so, playing derby games against us?
Are you hoping for us to be relegated?

my only concern about all of this is how fair is this to the fans and the other 23 clubs in league 1 and the 24 in league 2. Surely it would be better for all parties for Pompey to gracefully withdraw from the league and start again in Conference South. Eastleigh v Pompey derby game as a certain ring to it !! But seriously this is dragging on for FAR to long now

I remember talking to a Skate at work about 3 players refusing to go to Ipswich last season. He said they were loyal, I doubt he feels the same way now. When Saints were in the same predicament we lost some better players than the dross PFC are trying to offload. No wonder no one wants them.

Go into liquidation and start again with a clean sheet and do what AFC Wimbledon did, now there is a role model for them!.............
That's the answer..It will get rid of all the parasites that have screwed the club into the ground.The stumbling block would appear that they still want to hang on to Fratton Park for some reason.Oddly enough ,I support both teams (Wimbledon were my Prem team when Pompey were lower league)

I think it's sad I think it's bad for football and could happen to any football club in the country.

It could so easily have happened to saints

I think they should fold it and drop into the blue sqaure or whatever league take the core 10-12 thousand with them and start again

Possibly get the supporters to put money into building additional terraces at Havant & Waterlooville.

They could either ground share or merge

Whatever happens I wish them all the best

Fans (and the club) have to be naive if they think that the players should be held " responsible" for the clubs situation and "its up to them to save the club" Thats total NONSENSE!The facts are they are under contract-with the club- for a lot of money. (What Skate do you know that wouldn't be straight to the local county court if their employer breached their contract !!!) If they take a lower wage (no doubt a stupid amount a week ) they would then still under contract, then the players are stuck, no chance to moving on, Stuck in League 1 with -10 points , no goal keeper and 6000 fans if they are lucky, no agent - or solicitor would advise them otherwise. To put it on the players shoulders is totally WRONG.... total blackmail.!!! BUt by the look of it the players are ignoring this guilt TAG and good luck to them.

I think that Portsmouth could enjoy a rise from the ashes type scenario, if they started in the Non-league arenas, but they would need to be patient too. Not sure they would keep 10-12000 fans either to watch them play Basingstoke or Erith and Beldevere, or Farnborough ....
