The shifting deadlines, the fudging by Brendan, the secrecy, has all had it's required effect.
If Heaney doesn't come up with the dosh, I think there's a 90/10 of Argyle folding.
Not all on the CC agree with me, but I think the majority did.
Dark, dark days, and I hope for all our sakes (including Brenda and Heaney) that this deal does go through, as I'm not quite sure what the reaction of Argyle fans would be.
Jut think, if the hapless Guilfoyle had accepted the best deal (Brent's) at the time, we would have been out of admin by 2 months now and looking forward to a quantifiable future, now what?
IJN's right, if Heaney fails to complete next week, and I personally don't think he will for a whole host of reasons, the odds are now stacked heavily against the club's survival.
We all saw Guilfoyle's tortured performance on the stage at the Pavilions last week. Unless P&A are prepared to accept some responsibility for the consequences of their decisions and actions ("The Irish", "Heaney definitely not involved", "Heaney merely an advisor to BIL", "I am assured that funding will be in place", etc etc ad infinitum) and provide the contingency with a sensible amount of time, then liquidation is now odds on.
As someone said in the meeting - "Brendan's not prepared the necessary ground for an alternative solution. If Heaney doesn't perform next week, there's virtually no time left. So he'll turn to us, take the pin out of a grenade, and hand it to us with a smile on his face..."
That's a good analysis, I fear.
Odds on liquidation? I wouldn't go as far as 90:10. But not that far off it.
Won't stop people trying though..
