Pompey administrator Trevor Birch today urged fans: ‘Keep the faith.’
Mr Birch, from newly appointed administrators PKF, said: ‘I feel the supporters of Portsmouth are happy, that it’s time for a new face, a new change, so let’s hope we can achieve something successful going forward.
‘Obviously the intention is to try and sell the club as a going concern.
‘I just think there needs to be a new face for the supporters - a new face that’s looking at every aspect of the club, just to give it some new vitality.
‘I’m used to dealing with clubs in crisis, you could say most of the Championship is in crisis.
‘Thirty per cent of the clubs in the Championship were paying wages in excess of 100 per cent of turnover.
‘That in itself tells a story.’
When asked what his message to the fans would be Mr Birch said: ‘Keep the faith and keep supporting and hopefully we will find a solution together.’
