Iain McInnes and Ashley Brown: Portsmouth Supporters Trust

Pompey administrator Trevor Birch of PKF confirmed the case to determine whether he can sell the club to the PST-led bid will be heard on December 13 and 14.

"It is a relief to know we will have some certainty sooner rather than later," said chairman of the Trust, Ashley Brown. "Our understanding is the matter will be resolved at this hearing as there is unlikely to be any grounds for any appeal.

"If all goes according to plan, and our legal advisers say we have a strong case, we will take control of Portsmouth FC shortly afterwards and the process of rebuilding our club can begin.

"That is why we are urging fans to fulfil their pledges or purchase shares by that date. The more working capital we can raise quickly, the more control we will have over the situation and the quicker we can get going with our plans.

"We are very encouraged by the initial response to the share offer. There is a steady stream of pledges and new purchases of shares arriving hourly, so many that we haven't been able to count them yet.

"However, fans can't relax. This share offer needs to be a success or else there is a significant chance the club will be liquidated. There is no alternative offer on the table, so we have to make this work."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
