David James believes Portsmouth will be kept alive in the coming weeks.
The England number one helped Pompey into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on Saturday, with a tremendous display in the 4-1 win over local rivals Southampton.
Pompey's off-field financial worries continue to be on the minds of everyone involved with the club.
But James is confident that Portsmouth will not be allowed to die.
"I think it's too important for too many people, for football even, that a top-flight club can go out of existence," said James.
"It's not going to be easy and whoever it is who helps us out we'll thank them now, but it's important we stay in business and important Portsmouth keep flying the flag in the Premier League for Hampshire."
