Ian Newell has blocked me on twitter. Not before accusing me of placing an advert on gumtree stating he was selling a parrot.

Well I think that's what he was getting at. I asked him if he had spoke to a doctor.

What a nutcase.

It's not just any parrot, it's a pasoti parrot and repeats the words "I saw it in his eyes", "I saw his lip quiver", "At last, I get my rightful position in the Directors Box" and "Ban him, ban him!"

Meanwhile, his blood brother Upside Down Andy, still doesn't understand why tickets for a club showing no class, vision or ambition, can't be given away Rolling Eyes  No

No it wouldn't.

It has been proven many times in the past, you can't even GIVE tickets away!


I'd take a freebie!!


You may well Tugboat but there have been numerous times in the past when the club has dished out freebie tickets and still the rows of seats have remained empty.

Some of us exiles have even bought tickets and offered them as freebies...never to be taken up!

I would agree with you if you said "10 quid SHOULD get more..." sadly though, it doesn't!

That's bollocks, it was actually my idea on pasoti to buy a ticket for a friend or family member who was too hard up to buy one themselves - this was when we were in admin. and the staff weren't getting paid- I can't remember which match it was but there were loads of people there, my brother jumped at the chance for freebies for him and my nephew. I could afford to go but but am a conscientious objector nowadays, my bro on the other hand is struggling, he works bloody hard but with the crap wages down here he struggles to keep up with bills let alone days out.

It's how an eternally underachieving city club, with no top flight exposure attracts new blood, or even the missing 10k from 10 years ago, that is beyond them.
Clubs similar to us historically like Reading, Hull, Cardiff, Swansea etc have all done it but it has taken improved, ambitious stadia and risk investment at the right time.
Only those already addicted will buy into Argyle now, even if they're giving tickets away. We're no different than anywhere else.The statement coming from the club now is one of utter mediocrity. Nobody will be interested in the ministand finishing a ground fit for lower league boasting and no more.

Newell and Soper just can't see it. Very sad but very typically Plymouth.

How did Hull do it? They had a wage bill of over £20m on top of which they spent over £6m in transfer fees (not including £5m for Huddlestone because the deal went through at a later date), lost, their owner says he "spent", £66m over three years and lost £28m in their most recent promotion season. And they had parachute payments during that time too.

This is a model now outlawed under the Financial Fair Play rules so we couldn't follow it even if we wanted to.

That extra £1m (or whatever it is) from the new stand is not going to go very far, is it?

I think we can knock a nought off that figure quite easily SFD, the Exeter chiefs model has been completely blown out of the water, that anybody even tried to make the comparison is laughable.

It just goes to show how Mickey Mouse the contribution to Argyle from the new development will be even if you accept the figures suggested to justify it.

The fact that hardly any of the income from the retail units in the stand will benefit the club in any way is just a cherry on top of the shit sponge.

We're going to left with an owner who has promised that he will not invest in the club and the stadium and all that goes with it won't ever be able to raise the required funding either.

I know what we currently have is barely fit for purpose, I know that it is an eyesore, I know that the dereliction it represents needs to be sorted out and I know it all needs to be done as soon as possible. I know the problems. I just wish the proposed solution looked a bit like it was capable of both addressing the woes and providing a platform on which we could build a glorious future but it doesn't and I'm genuinely struggling to think of a solution to those problems that could have been worse.

I honestly do not understand how any Argyle supporter can be in favour of this development.

As a vision for the future of the club it is so shit it's unbelievable.

Even if a sports bar is included, it's hardly likely to be a regular earner. Areas that can be used like a pub on match days will not double up as a quality function room.Most income from what little space is available in the ministand will go to brent anyway.

The supporters' bar is just a crumb that will fall from the big table. It's unbelievable that it wasn't included from the off and so it probably was and has been sitting there on the real plan all along to be graciously bestowed as a late sop to quell objection at the last.

Supporters' bar or no supporters' bar it is still a desperately poor, from an Argyle viewpoint, plan.

Without the total support of the usual pasoti linked suspects, the opposition would have been considerable.The council, the press and brent would have been forced to listen and improve the development AFT WG style, or face mutiny.

My suspicion all along has been that certain individuals fancy a permanent seat in the directors' box and involvement at the club. The fact that the ground will be 'finished' in more ways than one, suits their agenda of remaining in position at a club that will occasionally do ok in the lower leagues but will never grow into anything that could challenge their own brent given opportunity to 'play with the train set'.

Don't mind if I correct your post old chap?

The apparent struggle to lease the pay and display car park next to the free (for now) park & ride and Ice Rink scaled at size of many around the country struggling doesn't look too clever.
