Yep, even got a recommendation from SAF but that still wasn't good enough to get him a work permit. Lo-and-behold, a few years later and no such problems for Portsmouth.

GSE have today stated their commitment to the current plan/approach. Great.

Edit: Suddenly the timing of the above statement becomes clear - Gadsby's put another bid in, GSE have rejected it. Should make the next home game interesting. Can only see the pressure increasing on the Americans now.
And I have the strangest sense of deja vu!

I give Gadsby credit for being local and, so I believe, and actual fan, but does he really have the financial backing to do any better than GSE's backers? I mean last time he bought us he'd got rid within 18 months....I'd just hate for us to go through the same cycle again with him selling us off to the first promising buyer on the horizon.

If I'm honest I wish there was a third alternative, but then again that might be someone from the middle or far east so maybe it's better the devil you know!
