All aboard and enjoy (being taken) for a ride.
Jeez TC, you really have been supping the grumpy juice tonight haven't you.
The statement even alludes to the fact they WANTED a football enthusiast to step in, they were playing the the safety rope game. It strikes me that we should be extremely grateful for the fact they not only saw Argyle as a significant Westcountry institution but were not prepared to sit idly by and let it die.
As property developer owners go surely one that recognises the importance of our brand to that extent and steps in for those reasons is better than a wee grinning bafoon from Truro, a Tory councillor or a colection of seven incompetent business numpties from all corners of the globe. TC?.
It's got a while to run still but if they get the club I think that's just about the perfect deal for us. We're not even beggars, we're dead on our arses yet we get a fantastically well run and prudent business empire. They want us to be stable, self sufficient and provide excellence, in line with the way the other parts of the empire are run, perfect I say.
If you're watching JB, just don't make the rent prohibitive and don't 'punish' success by raping the profits, and please include a Trust representative on your board, it's essential for trust (with a small T). We'll need to stabilise for a season or two but in time we can make Argyle the flagship of your company if you give us the chance .
