Chris has rather well laid out the proposition that this is Plan B and only to be enacted if Plan A fails. Plan B is all about James Brent riding over the horizon IF Heaney fails to deliver.
It is not an alternative to Plan A because he wasnt that committed to buying Argyle. If he was we wouldnt be in the apparent mess many believe we are currently in. He made it very clear he would not finance the club, including paying the staff, whilst deciding if he wished to proceed. He would not pay the exclusivity payments nor pay that much to those Argyle oweed.
Against that backdrop, Heaney is now in pole position and will probably get the freeholds and pass off the club to the Riddler. The time to gee up Brent was some months ago and persuade him to go a step further. he didnt want to and so we are where we are.
Like wise Viv P cant be seen to come out and say "PCC will buy HP, which is why she hasnt.
We are where we are for very good reasons. 2/3 pretty awful alternatives but the ginger one is heading for the tape first and the Riddler is still smiling.
Relax, the contest is over, now you only have to decide if you wish to actively support Argyle or not.
I would like to add also,that the Trust can use this as a template for when the need will arise again (and i believe it will). And if Ridsdale is to leave once the club is on a sounder footing,then the Trust will be in a more decent position to make a claim,providing they can keep sweet talking Brent and badgering the Council.
