Players / Directors didn't get paid today...

The club is in a right old mess. I suppose the natural order of football is taking place and they'll end up in the 2nd/3rd tier where they belong.

Or maybe the game is fucked, ruined by greedy cunts and mercenary players?

Under FA rules, if the players don't get paid they become free agents. I bet those who left in the summer are gutted, they'd have got miles more money as free agents.
We'll see tomorrow what happens.

Are they allowed to join a new club immediately? Sol Campbell isn't.

Yes.. but when the company you work for can't pay you and says "we'll pay you tomorrow" are you inclined to believe them?

Maybe there is a minor glitch but it's hardly good for morale is it?

Well yes but letting 'Arry' spend all that money, well beyond their means is what did them in...

Think you have to miss more than one paydate for that to happen.

What's going on at Portsmouth? I've not really been following the story but I've been under the impression that this owner has fuck all money and has somehow talked his way in to being the owner. Every week he seems to be promising them money but it never appears. I read somewhere this morning that he's selling his stake already.

Was the guy just a con artist?
