Give the manager a totaly inadequate budget knowing he's almost certain to fail ensuring a quick return to the basement and a more profiable business model, eight thousand punters in the fourth division with players on short term copntracts and low wages sound like a win win for Akkeron man?

To be fair to Brent I don't think he wants a relegation but he's made the mistake of thinking that because Adama has supplied one miracle in a promotion with a shit budget he thinks he can always do it. Brent is trying to keep his options open by streamlining Argyle, less staff in all areas, less money for maintenance, infrastructure, promotion you name it. It's all done to make the club look attractive to people when he sells up. I just wish he'd get on with it.

You do have to wonder. His advisers telling him the mugs will still turn out paying good money week and week out to watch a team going nowhere in div 4.

And that is where Brent has made a massive blunder, he's seen us all supporting the shite of the last six years to save the club even the most deluded of fans now realise what he's about and will stop turning up, we've seen it before, he's about to.
How many season tickets will we sell next year? I reckon he'll be lucky to sell 3 thousand.

Agree that’s a massive issue. Another relegation back to League Two will signal the end for a lot of people.

Brent might want to think about that if his master plan is to get out at a very tidy profit.

The really terrifying scenario for me is that Brent can't afford to get out after a relegation. We could be stuck with the stubborn Cnut for years.

What do you suppose the break-even attendance figure is? And how close will we get to it while this run continues? As Argyle appears to be the only profitable business he owns, the implications for the wider Brent empire (snigger) are pretty devastating if Argyles brief foray into the world of profitability comes to an end. Maybe that will be the trigger for him finally getting the hell out of Dodge.

I don't think it makes any difference to Brent where we are. His main aim was to get hold of prime real estate at a knockdown price, which he has achieved with HHP. He's shafted the club by wanting to build offices and restaurants which will only benefit him.

He can squirrel away a few more quid through unbudgeted income from the football club, it doesn't matter whether it's L1 or L2. Every penny helps dontchaknow.

He doesn't give a monkeys about the club or the fans. All he sees is a profit.

I don't think he gives a monkeys about relegation. To stay up he needs to pay up, either by sacking or backing Adams. Relegation and a mid table budget for next season shouldn't hurt his profit margins.

There will be many a Pasoti member reading this today. When you have read that once go and read it again until it sinks in.

What if the only part of the Akkeron empire making money Argyle?
Making money with minimal investment, sit on HHP until planning permission is granted then sell, kerching.
The three month delay, so far, to the grandstand return won't matter too much in league 2 with smaller crowds.

Speaking of Brent has he said anything to the players whos wages he pays about their performances yet or spoken to del bhey and his team saying he wants to see an improvement in results asap?

wouldn't any chairman worth their salt be doing this before now instead of that bs statement that looked like plebb wrote it released early this week?

His continuous public silence along with the boards should be noted by their supporters as it should be concerning them.

He has asset stripped the Club from the get go. All this "he is a fan you know" is a smokescreen accepted by the feeble minded.

If you go back through his opening quotes about HHP he originally said it must be a sensitive development with sport at its heart. So does that mean a table tennis table in the offices or what?

He'll rent out 5% of the office space and part of the gym to Argyle. That'll cover the sport angle. By the time he leaves the club high and dry without a yard of space to develop itself, he'll have some nice long term Argyle contracts in place to complement his ticketing solutions and other little earners for his pension pot.
In my mind, it's touch and go if he'll eventually actually want to crowbar the stadium itself off the club and then rent it back to them on top of Hallett's mortgage. Maybe the idea is to let the rust do it's thing, wait for the club to not be able to afford the repairs, and then kindly offer to buy the stadium for an Akkeron price, and then do an Akkeron paint job, kindly assisted by those charidee mimickers, the GTs.
He won't have any retirement fiscal worries, that's for sure.
