I agree that the other options are certainly there to explore but as this plan B only got off the ground a couple of days ago it really has to be said that there is no time to get it all into place. The main reason being for that is lack of money. Obviously Mr Brent is at the meeting on Friday and he is the main source of that but he does not strike me as a man who is willing to gamble. The current debts at the club are huge and somebody has to clear them. There are still to many ifs and buts in any alternative plan and the stakes are high.
I still believe the best alternative is to get this deal through and support the club. THEN, we start negotiation.
I am confident that we as a club can raise over 10 million per annum and at the same time liberate football clubs at all levels and revoloutionalise the sporting world by raising millions
more for all sports. I am also confident that we as a club can influence a trend that will place sports clubs back at the hub of communities, helping to revitalise local economy and independent businesses.
I want Plymouth Argyle to be at the forefront of this and this downturn in our fortunes could actually be the beginning of something really special.
I really want and need the club to survive, it's part of my life and I can't be without it.
The distant future is what the trust need to be looking at,and aiming for. Ridsdale has said he wishes to leave in or around a year's time,or whenever?.
They can use their current plan B as a template,as contacts made now,will hopefully stay with them. Helping where they can,advising when they can.
Basically,the Trust will have a year or two to get their house in order,that will no doubt include a business/funding plan to buy the club,with possibly Brent as a leading ally,followed by a reluctant Council.
I would support that motion of events,as the chance of success would be greater.
