Yet another Premier League club which will be rich overnight. Expect Portsmouth to be active in the transfer market.

Oh well, he might as well invest in a footie club now before the oil runs out.

When the oil runs out, there will be plenty of deep, empty holes he can pour whats left of his money into.....

They will certainly be cheaper than most, but have no glamour, no great credibility and as far as I am aware don't have a big fanbase. Sponsorship opportunities will therefore be more limited.

Only worth it if the price was around £2.50.

Great great news.

I am a Saints fan btw and have had little to smile about football wise this year.

I only hope he runs portsmouth as well as he runs Hydra properties!

I laughted recently when I saw some Hydra investors were ejected from their HQ for being a bit arsey over the fact that the properties they purchased have progressed no further than a lump in Mr Fahim's wallet. Wait til Fahim has to deal with the Skate fans. I hope he likes tattoos, broken noses and shell suits.
