But wouldn't it have come from him anyway,
just a different name on the cheque so to speak,

Instead of PAFC, It had Simon Hallett on it,

So to confirm, Hallett paid them off with his own personal funds rather than the contracts being paid up by PAFC, the business?

I hope the few that labelled him and 30% as two cheeks of the same arse realise what an unjustified insult that is/was.

It was widely reported in the herald last week that Hallet said the pay off for Wotton and Adams won't come from the transfer kitty but written off by him personally.

Oh come off it. It could be man trying to protect his interests by paying some of his own bills. Hardly time to canonise him yet. Argyle still feels to me like it's stumbling along. He has to get the manager and budget right now, much as I like to blame Brent for everything this is Halletts tenure now, he dallied when he should have sacked Adams when we only needed one more win and that has put Argyle under serious pressure. Persoanlly I'm not convinced by him yet.

Seemed a genuine type...a fan since young and in it to do what he can to help Argyle and he paid off Adams and Wotton personally to protect the clubs budget for next season.

Prefer Hallett over brent , but don't get the whole giving the chairman a hand shandy business.

Wasn't in the Brent hand shandy club so not gonna be queuing up to give hallett one.

He's just the guardian of the club at the end of the day, hopefully he leaves it in a better state then when he found it, when we get passed to the next guardian,

It seems like we have those who want to give him a chance, those yet to be convinced, those who think he's the next brent and a few who can't really be fans of the club the way they take glee in things feckin up for us,

Oh I'd love him to do more. I'd love him to be the benefactor so many other clubs have. But taking a personal financial hit when you didn't have to, puts him at the absolute polar opposite end of the scale to the blood sucking leech he succeeded. Wouldn't you agree?

Course I would but there is still a chance his stewardship could see us out of the football league next season. If we appoint a decent manager and back him so he can get some decent players, we hit the ground running then we will still get similar crowds to what we have now and disaster will have been averted. However if we dawdle about, appoint someone shit and or continue the shite budgets, start the season like we have the last couple and the crowds and our budget and cash flow will disappear. I wish I shared your faith but we are in a precarious position. Jury is still out on Hallett for me.

I take the view that the club must be in some kind of financial trouble if chair has paid out of own pocket, makes a mockery of financial fair play

We cant have been in financial trouble when the paying off Adams and Wotton coincided with season ticket sales. Whilst they will be down big bundles would have been dropping in daily

On the footballing side yeah of course, appointing the right manager is crucial.

But again, it's not so much that I see Hallett as any new Messiah or have any sort of undying faith. It still frustrates me that he doesn't appear to have quite grasped that First team success is absolutely all that matters to 99% of fans.

At the end of the day though, he is the bloke that has ended the asset stripping, blood sucking and hapless attempted property speculation that was the trademark of the Brentmare. If rumours are borne out, he'll be the one that finally see's 30% reduced to 0%. He may not be the sugar daddy we'd love, but he sure as hell isn't looking to fcuk the club over at every available opportunity for personal gain, like Brent was. So at the minute, he'll do.

Hallet is far better than the comedy act that has gone before and wants club to succeed.
But we need to get out of this shit league as soon as possible so get a manager in and give him the budget to make it happen, not a lot to ask.

We agree on a lot of things but I've never been in the camp that wants a billionaire to buy us a spot in the prem, it makes a mockery of fair play and we all know in reality there is no fairness in football they've turned a great sport into a joke on many levels. I still think we are in a very precarious position financially and this last bail out reinforces that view. I'm still not convinced the board have a football first mentality.

I'd agree with this from what I heard.

He also said the player budget last season was not one that should have been relegated. i.e at the very least it wasn't bottom 4.

Another point, he was asked directly, will the player budget be geared for an instant return to league 1 next season, that's to say is promotion everything-he agreed it was.

I'm pretty sure I read recently Adams saying the budget was bottom five so Hallett isn't lying.

Wouldn't adams have said something like that to try to justify being shit , to the herald and us tho.

No because of Adams was saying hings publicly about he budget hat wasn't true the board would have had him up on it, he's alluded to it for the last two seasons.

It was said that it was 5th lowest. So in that regard I suppose he is correct

If Hollowords has been offered it and turned it down because of money.
He can't be too keen to put right his wrongs, should take the money or leave it.
glad he still loves a pound note so no chance of him coming back
