I knew we would have to do it one more time.
I knew that we would have to fight for our Club back right up until the last moment and thus it has come to pass.
James Brent has made significant progress today and the ambition remains to close the deal tomorrow with the negotiations with PandA over fees anticipated to be the only issue outstanding.
Surely everyone wants this over? Surely enough has been given? Surely we have earned the right to have our Club back?
Sadly not in the eyes of PandA.
We have learned that PandA plan to ask the staff and players for a further 7 day deferral tomorrow in a bid to remove the pressure point from them and to string out the agony for everyone.
This cannot be tolerated.
In short the staff, players and supporters are being used in a very high stake game of poker.
I have to be very open with you. PandA will use the same tactics that they have previously done by threatening to close the Club if staff and players do not comply. We cannot sit back and see our Club bullied in this way.
The threat, if carried through would see PandAs reputation destroyed. This, as last time is a threat based tactic.
The deal to save this Club is on the table. The fees previously agreed by James Brent and PandA are on the table. We implore PandA to sign the agreement tomorrow and bring Argyle out of Administration.
We also 100% support the staff and players in the face of such blatant blackmail. You will be threatened, there will be press releases, there will be moments on unbearable tension for us all.
Now more than ever it is vital that we stand united and stand together.
This has to end tomorrow. The staff, players and supporters have had enough.
To the staff and players – do not sign the deferrals. We stand shoulder to shoulder with you.
To PandA – Do the right thing and close this deal.
To the Green Army. 1. Please post messages of support to staff/players on a thread I am about to start. 2, It may well be time to contact PandA again (peacefully) – I am sure one of the guys can find their details and 3. If this time tomorrow we have no movement then be prepared to travel to Sheffield.
Ladies and gentlemen this is going to get hot.
I ask you to do the same as what I am doing now. Take a deep breath and get ready to fight for the future of our Club.
We rid the Club of the ex Directors
We rid the Club of BIL
We have seen off all comers and now only PandA stand in the way of us and saving Argyle.
I don’t mind saying as I am writing this I have a tear in my eye thinking of all that everyone has given to get us this far.
Enough is enough.
WE’RE PLYMOUTH ARGYLE AND WE’LL NEVER DIE
