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."

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
