There is no statement from James Brent that he will allow others with less experience to dictate the sort of company he would own and one would assume run.
From the first moment this "baby" was mooted I have asked Why?. Why would the only person with the money hand over responsibility for running the campaign to those not experienced in such matters. We know James is no football fan let alone an Argyle one and when he had the opportunity to become the PB didnt take it. He may be genuine in what his says about the place of Argyle in the community, but he sure aint going to pay for it over and above the minimum he can get away with. Many of us saw this reticense as the first sign he didnt really want to be here and nothing since has changed my mind on that point.
So I ask again Why. Why would James Brent risk, lets face it, considerable sums of his own money when no one else apparently will and take no responsibility for it. Why would a successful businessman, an otherwise intelligent man, let a band of brothers dictate how he spends it.
I can not for the life of me understand why anyone would wish to hand of some influence to a Trust with less than 1,100 paying members, although that figure may have increased recently, no current figure appears available. And before anyone says its more than the Trust, all I can say is then they are neutered like a Tom Cat as its Chris and the Trust that are running rings around you all. On a personal note I have to say Chris has played a blinder and will no doubt not be facing election for Trust Chairman in the forthcoming election.
I note one of the aims is to review pricing, especially for the young, shame when they had the chance in talks with the club they didnt express them then.
I also note that none of the other constituent grounps issue statements, another aspect I have found worrying and facsinating in equal measure.
But the bit that saddens me most is people like me who are oppossed to Heaney and frankly, his failure to either explain or complete also find we have nothing to support by way of Goverance. To date I have not renewed my ST, as things stand I would find it difficult to financially support this Contingency Plan as presently constituted. personally, this is a lose/lose.
Yeah, it's rubbish isn't it.
Seriously - what a typical and somewhat pathetic old-school washed-up Janner response. Moan moan moan.
What are you prepared to do to help the club, Mr Cholwell?
Good question, I have supported everything sponsored by the GT's, including buying tickets for things I didnt/couldnt attend, like yesterday and like many other fans.
Ive also been known to walk around the BL on numerous occasions to collect money for the staff and buy numerous items at auction my wife would probably prefer I didnt.
And you have done............?
I only ask but you're a newish poster who I have not encountered before.
I stand corrected
