PostSubject: Argyle and 'modern football'   Fri Jan 05, 2018 4:59 pm

I'm interested in people's thoughts on the phenomena of ‘modern football?’ How can we as fans make sure our history and culture survives whilst growing as a club? So many fans of clubs in the Prem seem to feel like they've lost their identity as a result of stadium moves, massive wages/transfer fees, no local players etc. How does Argyle survive, thrive and become successful without selling its soul? Or are teams like Argyle struggling because of the excesses of modern football?

Local players? We seem intent on not playing local players or selling them.

Exactly, teams don't generally have local players anymore, instead it's a high turnover of loan players every year.

1.  Brent puts his own interests before the clubs.

2.  Nowhere near the level of "transparency" promised

3.  Try's to manipulate the fan base via his own set up supporters and advisory groups.

If we are worrying about losing our identity due to stadium moves, massive wages or transfer fees....then we have no worries at all about losing our identity. clown

I'd fookin love Argyle to be in a situation whereby someone comes in, eradicates the lower league village mentality that has pervaded PAFC for decades, and drags us into the 21st century.

Tragically, all Brent is interested in is running a skeleton-staffed shoe-stringed rank amateur set-up, and hoping beyond hope that Adams can do a Sturrock mk1 and get us into the 2nd tier. Then, and only then will his share of the club reach the necessary profit level he seeks.

But I digress.

So yeah, under the current regime there are zero worries about the phenomena of 'modern football' affecting our tinpot outfit.

Czarcs, I know we're not each others biggest of fans, and I don't give a feck if you read this or not, but I'll do the decent thing and offer a reply when I feel one is worthy of my time and effort. I think you have summed up our past, current and future aspirations perfectly. Absolutely bang on the money.

If you're offended by me even talking to you, please fill in the form below and return it to POI towers. Thank you. tongue

Brent and his culture of the superfans are killing the club. the gradual errosion of the clubs status until the height of our ambition will be being in the top half of league 1 playing in an 17000 stadium surrounding by money grabbing junk food shops, an Icerink and a vet.

All spot on - I also can't trust a man who is a serial failure in business, who manipulates his way into receiving millions in public money whilst delivering nothing in return and who continues to endorse pathological liars, bullies, hooligans and frauds in positions of influence within the club.
