    If Portsmouth go bang in the next seven days , this is the time the high court has given them as a final deadline to pay 7.8 million in taxes , then all the teams who have got points off them this season will have them deducted.

    This will leave us better off as we lost to them while some of our relegation rivals drew or won… :lol:

    Cant be bothered to do a full revised table , would be interesting to see though.

    All this has been discussed on another thread, including the expunging of their records

    HMRC are the ones pushing for the full payment and if they continue to press their case and demand their money, it could well happen.

    The Premier League may well think they are above the law but i think they may meet their match with HMRC.

    The Premier League have the so called best league in the world not only in football but other sports as well, the Premier League need to maintain credability, the Premier League are sponsored by Barclays (Barclays were one of the main creditors of PFC), the Premier League need to preserve their integrity (they cannot do that if one of their own goes under) – there are so many reasons and without going too deep

    PFC are or will be due a guaranteed income for the next 3 years from the Premier League

    So if no independent / third party saviour comes in the Premier League will supply the funds

    Stinks if they do. I can understand EPL not wanting them to be liquidated, but going into Administration should be OK. It preserves the 20-team league and if they subsequently are relegated, so what? Chances are they would have been relegated anyway and 3 teams go each season as a matter of course.

    it all adds to the conspiracy theories which is why forums like this are so entertaining

    The Tevez affair – couldnt have the happy Hammers getting relegated could we – the Trevor Brooking connection at the FA
    The Phil Dowd refereeing display at Arsenal
    At the time – the whole question of referees against us when we had outlived our first season and as a little club were not wanted anymore
    The big 4 getting all the decisions as its not commercially viable to let a small team in
    Away teams never getting penalties at Old Trafford
    Ferguson added time
    etc etc etc !!!!!!!

    Basically it would affect the following relegation rivals if they went out the league looking at previous results:

    West ham -4 points
    Bolton -3 points
    Sunderland -2 points
    Hull -1 point

    Can the Inland Revenue put a team out in Pompey’s absence?

    We’d still play one up front ;)
