Argyle's barrister was only briefed at 9 am this morning and had no idea what to expect when he arrived at Court and the Directors had no idea this morning what application was being made by whom and for what.
The barrister was telephoned by the club at 1.00pm to be told the Directors had unanimously voted to place the club into admin. At which point he became an unsecured creditor.
HMRC were effectively dancing on the head of a pin today.
That's the bit I don't get. Surely there is some kind of process around this.
How can you not know you're going to court?
