Portsmouth are sure to go down now that a nine-point penalty has been passed down by the Premier League as a consequence of the club’s administration. Andrew Andronikou (pictured), who was at Anfield Road for Pompey’s most recent defeat at the hands of Liverpool, was unable to deliver on his notion that the club might not actually be forced to accept the penalty. As the first Premier League club to ever go into administration, Portsmouth are now left on just ten points, fourteen adrift of even Hull City’s nineteenth place. But there is good news for the south coast club as HM Revenues and Customs deemed the administration proper and withdrew the winding up order that could’ve liquidated the club, sold Fratton Park and erased entirely the concept of Portsmouth FC. Now the club will have to ply their trade in the Championship in 2010/11 as their disastrous financial situation continues to be worked out.
