Fratton Park: Owning their own training ground is the club's eventual goal

Pompey are preparing themselves for life in League Two after a third relegation in four seasons and on Wednesday agreed a deal to train at facilities at the University of Portsmouth.

Catlin told The News: "It's great to be re-engaging with the university after years of not being as close as we should be.

"This has been a moving process, we explored many facilities - overall there were seven or eight we looked at. However, it is still part of our mid-term strategy to own a training ground.

"A key part of club strategy is we want to create a legacy - and part of that is going to have your own training ground and not renting.

"In the meantime, this is a very good deal for us financially."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
