Pompey, unbeaten in their last five matches, head to the High Court on April 10-11 to resolve a dispute over the valuation of their Fratton Park ground.

The Pompey Supporters' Trust are attempting to rescue the stricken club, which has been in administration for more than a year.

But their takeover bid hinges on being able to buy Fratton Park, which is controlled by former club owner Balram Chainrai.

The future of Pompey is therefore in the balance but Whittingham, a Fratton Park legend as a player, admits it is out of his hands.

"We can't affect that," he said. "We can only affect what happens on the pitch and hopefully things off it will work out for us."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
