Poor Portsmouth

17 Mar

Portsmouth has been docked nine points after going into administration.  The club is now 17 points from safety and barring a miracle, will be relegated to the Championship. They are now 14 points behind Hull and Burnley who sit above them with nine games remaining. (Nine games?!  That’s all that’s left of the season?! Wow, did not realize that.)

It rather sucks that the players and fans are penalized for the ownership being terrible and that there is no punishment for the people who actually put the club in this situation.  I hope they win the FA Cup, so there’s at least a little bit of positivity to come out of this season.

(And according to my manager mode on FIFA10, Portsmouth is top of the Prem table in 2011-12.  So there’s always that.)
