'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Pompey charged

Our neighbours 'down the road' have been charged with a breach of Premier League approach rules, in relation to Harry Redknapp's move from Saints in December.

Redknapp certainly attracted the media spotlight during the embarrassing south coast soap opera, which saw him join Pompey and eventually resulted in George Burley becoming Saints boss.

Southampton have made an official complaint about Pompey's conduct in the affair and the league have decided to take further action;

'Having considered the circumstances, the Board of the Premier League has charged Portsmouth with breaching the rules'

The most recent example of similar charges to this was when Chelsea were fined £300,000 and given a suspended three-point deduction for tapping up Ashley Cole. Cole was also handed a £100,000 fine and Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho ordered to pay £200,000 in the case.

Rupert Lowe must have looked at this in depth to have made a complaint. He's usually very astute when it comes to legal matters.

In 2004 he won £250,000 libel damages in a court case against The Times newspaper over an article that claimed he had behaved “shabbily” in suspending the Manager Dave Jones.
