In Brent's perfect world we get promoted, and it is then (and only then) that the value of his shareholding rises significantly enough for him to cash in.

A relegation however, may give him a wake-up call that he could be waiting a heck of a long time before the 2nd tier beckons again. With that comes the hope that he may, just may, decide to cash his chips in early.

Right now I'd take a return to Div4 if it guaranteed Brent feckin off.

I'd take a good seeing to from Brent and all his followers if he promised to feck off when he's finished, take one for the team. Embarassed

I've been saying that since promotion. I was also one who thought a proper bankrupt phoenix club with proper custodians 2 or 3 divisions below was the best outcome for club, fans, city and park. The trouble is now, I believe it would take another relegation out of division 4 to really get a head of steam up to force him out, and we will have still lost any worthwhile future assets to him. ... and shortly we'll be mortgaged to him and his mate. It's all been a disaster really.

Indeed..........investment managers do have a habit of keeping their fingers in the pie. The club's future is pretty f*cked unless a big player steps in and pays the bankers off.

Whoever Argyle chose as their new owner (as if they have a choice!) will be sucked up to by Porky. Blokes a serial leg shagger of the rich.

Trouble is I can't see anybody on the horizon who's likely to be vaguely interested, maybe Heaney might give it a shot!. Said it a long time ago, form a trust, take over your own club and eventually (10 years or so down the line) you just might start achieving what a City of your size should have.

Nobody to blame except your own fear.

Unbeleivably,as things stand, it might be us singing "We'll never play you again" before long! Very Happy

I know Sturzer old bean we get it it's just Nool and the gang with their JBSOTI propaganda tool is a big hurdle, however it's not all bleak Nool is getting more and more isolated and people are waking up to Brent. The curse is the development land once that's covered up with shite then maybe we could be back to being what we should be a football club.
If we had gone the Trust route we could be back in league two now with a club to be proud of, trouble was Webby and Nool mobilised the Trust to back property developers, strange behaviour.

You'd have thought the message would have got home by now that, a very few people aside, the posters on here are totally indifferent to Exeter and what their supporters think-it would be revealing to look at Exeweb on the day that Argyle were promoted last year to see how many ATD posters could be arsed to exercise puerile "bragging rights". Usual stuff about how successful trust run clubs are, which in Exeters case amounts to yo-yoing between the third and fourth division every few years or so while selling their best players to eventually instigate another 500 page Tisdale out thread. Try PASOTI, doubtless more reaction would be forthcoming there.

Argyle rejects? What would Brent give for Reid and Boateng now? (not a lot I'd warrant).

You want a winger and a goalscorer? Why didn't you buy David Wheeler when he was nearing the end of his contract? Adams was interested, got to suspect that Brent wouldn't back him.

How is Boateng doing?

He had two spells here and was fantastic in the first one and rather more unremarkable in his second which culminated in a non-appearance at Wembley. Then again he wasn't the only one who didn't turn up.

I reckon you have signed a gem there. He's young, physically strong enough and has some ability. If he only improves a little, as surely he will with games and his familiarity with teammates grows, you'll get good service out of him and a fee when he ups a level or two as is, I'll wager, as likely as not to happen.

You can't go wrong so fill your boots by all means about how we let him slip or whatever. I wish we had signed him. I'd have him before any of our current midfield in a heartbeat.

Out of all the Exeter players, the ones Argyle need the most right now are Reid and Brunt, especially Brunt who is League 1 quality, and but for his 2nd serious injury his form would have probably earnt him a move from Argyle to a championship or more ambitious L1 side (lets face it there are quite a lot of them).

I actually hope he does well for Exeter. Good to see Exeter progressing on and off the pitch, with the much needed new grandstand and away end. Unlike Plymouth, Exeter has never been afraid of success or attempting to create the causes to fulfil it's potential.

I'm sorry, Hugh, but you have missed, I assume, plenty.

Why did we need Brent at all?

Way back when it was widely assumed that we needed a new owner in the traditional sense we were led to believe that the costs of simply running Argyle/Home Park were unsustainable for a lower league club. We needed somebody with money to back us.

Well somebody with money did back us: Plymouth City Council.

PCC essentially underwrote Brent's purchase by buying Home Park from him for £1.6m. From that money £600k went to Lombard and all the other debt was either obliterated by the CVA or deferred.

So Argyle starting anew under, say, Trust ownership could have done the same, feckin hell anybody could have done the same!, and started with £1m cash behind them.

A sensible owner would then not have budgeted for 8500 crowds. Right from the start Brent loaded unneccessary debt against the club meaning "somebody with money" had to put funding in to keep it going. Why should we be grateful for somebody bailing out his own incompetence with his own cash?

The other financial assistance PCC gave Brent was an indefinite waiver on rent and rates. Again we were told this was an unaffordable expense when in reality, again, anybody could have afforded to pay the nothing they cost.

The brutal truth, if only it had been known at the time, is that we never actually "needed" Brent in the first place and since he has been here he has contributed nothing at all in terms of hard investment, as opposed to loans, while from the very outset he had asset-stripped the club by taking the HHP land.

As every new detail from that time emerges, as every new policy is announced, as every new promise he makes falls apart (do you remember "openness and transparency"?), as every wall remains unpainted (unless AFT pays for it), as every girder corrodes, as every playing target we're after decides on elsewhere and every development building project bearing the Akkeron stamp collapses it becomes clearer and clearer that we were "saved" (if that is true in any meaningful sense at all) by a man who is either inept, desperately and continually unlucky or just plain bloody deceiving us for his own benefit.

I can't see why we should be subserviently acritical of his stewardship of Argyle or why we should do anything other than shake our heads in horror every time his name is mentioned.
