Bit of a brilliant Christmas present for Pompey fans.

OK, so the club’s administrators didn’t quite chase Portpin out the high court with their collective tails between their legs – but who ever gets everything they really want at Christmas?

But seeing as the fantastic Blues’ fans have raised more than £1,000,000 to go towards the purchase of the football club through a share scheme, which adds to the seven-figure sums offered by well-heeled fans willing to put their money where their season tickets are, the signs are good that the Pompey Supporters’ Trust will have the cash to take over.

And as land around Fratton Park will also be back under club control, the only thing left to wish for is a successful high court rematch.
