Pompey To Survive The Season

The Football League has agreed to release a sum of around £800,000 to keep Portsmouth Football Club going until the end of the season.

Trevor Birch has confirmed that the club will receive a sum of around £200,000 monthly to ensure it stays afloat, buying the administrator time to find a new owner. This also saves the Football League the problem of having to expnuge Pompey's results and upsetting other clubs in the process.

However, Birch did not rule out that more players could leave on loan as the money situation remains extremely tight and so any cost-saving measures will always have to be considered.

So, it looks like that Pompey will live on until summer which can only be good news. But what will happen then?
