With crowds of at least 4,000+ the cost of renting the stadium and running costs wouldn't be a problem.

I guess it depends on who is setting the rent, and what the rent is. The maintenance of the Grandstand alone won't be cheap.

I saw that as well - but the article is dated 5 April - over 2 weeks old, but the beeb have got it on the main football page again - surely a mistake??

Strange.

Look's like he's back in talks with Admin.


I really would like Brent to takeover. He's got a good background & he plans on making the club within it's means, exactly what every club should be doing.

I doubt we would have crowds quite that large tbh Postie. Many supporters will fall by the wayside with the team dropping to non-league football I fear.

However, don't know if anyone has touched on this yet, even with the support dropping by a quite large amount, there will still be (by lower league standards) a huge following to away matches. Especially if more and more matches are fairly "local". Which, let's face it, anything south of Birmingham IS to us !! :)

So, how on earth will the smaller clubs/grounds cope with this ? I think that the appearance of Argo in the lower leagues will produce the occasional cash boost to the other clubs but will cause them a nightmare coping with the influx of hundreds and hundreds of the GA !
I foresee problems galore with clubs/towns coping with this. Another related problem will be the fact that when a large number of Argyle fans are turning up somewhere, it will probably attract all the wannabe "hooligans" from the surrounding areas to "challenge" the GA !?
A negative point, I know, but surely one that the relevant leagues/police forces will have to consider ?

Thinking of the above, some leagues/clubs may not be too keen on Plymouth Argyle entering their division . They may consider that it could be more trouble than it's worth ?

However, all of this speculation is unneccessary, we WILL be in league 2 next season, I'm sure :D

I can't see why there is so much hostility towards the bidders per say. They are not the ''NWO'',and a chance must be given to whichever bidder takes over.

So what if they have plans/ideas for the development & business side of things,as long as the football team/manager is catered for,i'll be more than happy & content.

However,if there was no improvement in say a year or two,then they would feel the wrath of the green army.

I'm sure representatives of the bidders have read this site,and the threads that have been put on here regarding said bids.

It would not surprise me one iota if the bidders (perhaps somewhere down the line ?) did get cold feet,due to negative writings,and pulled away of any attempt to buy/run the club.

Quote 'A Pompey supporting friend of mine was adamant that if liquidated the police would insist that they start in the Conference at least. If liquidated they would have been playing Totton, a nice club but in a suburb of Southampton. Pompey vs Scummers essentially. There is just no way the infrastructure could cope.'

So the Old Bill can decide which League we play in now??????!

What about the Green army going to Torquay next season? Major probs. I reckon we should stay where we are.
