Portsmouth FC in Crisis - Q&A

"Balram Chainrai, the owner of Portsmouth Football Club, has today served notice that the club will go into administration unless new owners can be found by Friday."

Make no mistake, Pompey fans, that means administration, and, as things stand, it is a best-case scenario. Tuesday's announcement merely confirmed what most close watchers of Portsmouth's desperate decline have known for some time: the club is down, broke and on the verge of oblivion.

But what does "going into administration" mean? Is this the end of Pompey's pain? And how has this happened to a recently successful team in the world's richest football league?
