An un-Storried past
Peter Storrie who enjoyed his best years as Pompey’s CEO when Sasha Gaydamak was the owner but became the dupe who let in all the barbarians at the gate finally ended his tenure.
However, he will continue to receive a remuneration for his assistance in finding a buyer and also to making the FA Cup semi-final arrangements.
Tragically, 85 other employees also lost their jobs in the cost cutting measures taking place under Andrew Andronikou, the administrator in charge of steering the club back to financial health.
Meanwhile, the administrators are now investigating £1.5 million worth of unexplained payments which seem to have originated when Daniel Azougy, a disbarred Israeli lawyer was made CFO by the then owner Ali Al Faraj in October 2009. The payments were made via Faraj’s client account at London law firm Fuglers.
I am sure when all of Pompey’s deep, dark secrets are uncovered, it will make for a juicy book. Looking for a journalist with the investigative chops to write a quality expose into the first Premiership club going belly up.
