Guy Whittingham: Planning ahead

Oldham's victory over Yeovil on Tuesday night sealed Pompey's fate, although the prospect of a 10-point deduction when they exit administration means League Two football next term has been a reality for some time.

The 2008 FA Cup winners have now dropped down in three of the past four seasons but are on the verge of a takeover by the Pompey Supporters' Trust following a drawn-out tussle with former owners Portpin and hope to leave administration on Friday.

"I'm glad to say we've come out the other side and everything is looking a lot more positive," caretaker boss Whittingham told BBC Radio Solent.

"It's been such a difficult time and the club unfortunately found itself where it was,

"We tried, we remained competitive but ultimately it wasn't enough. I do think we've given everything we can given the circumstances."

He added: "We will hopefully have our first home game on Saturday with everything sealed (the club out of administration) and with new owners, so we want to get off to a good start as far as that is concerned. Then we've got our last game of the season and everyone wants to win the last game of the season."

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.
