    Really? Close a thread because it's starting to look bad on our Club, perhaps? It doesn't need to be closed, it just needs people to stop being obsessed with Tamplin!

    A bit of both...I do appreciate the link, as I hadn't seen the story.
    But to apologise for the link, then posting it...either stick by your principles, or don't bother apologising.
    In fact, I've just clicked on it again, just because you so spinelessly apologised... ;)

    The homeless guy that Glenn gave a job to has ransacked the club according to GT on Twitter

    That's where empty PR gestures get you, Glenn.

    Probably claiming for the missing fans to make up the 3000 total each week ;)

    Driving 66mph in a 50mph - and also driving at 44mph in a 30mph zone - is reckless driving you stupid arrogant cunt.

    Looking at all the publicity it is bringing down to the lower leagues - is anybody starting to change their opinion and see him being involved as a benefit for all?
    He seems like he is taking lessons in humility and not being seen as so narcissistic, I think he is learning to take the brakes off his own publicity drive - seems more about the club these past couple of weeks, or not?

    Nope. He's only interested in promoting himself. His recent "LOOK AT ME HELPING THE HOMELESS PEOPLE EVERYONE" was embarrassing, as was his subsequent shaming of the poor sod he took off the street for his self-serving publicity purposes.

    If you want to help the homeless, give some money to Centrepoint, Shelter or Crisis instead of making it all about brand Tamplin.

    I find him and his cash-dripping circus an embarrassment to non-league football. I can't see why non league teams should be grateful for his antics.

    I tend to agree.

    Hendon played at Billericay on Non-League Day - rightly or wrongly, I wasn't prepared to cross his palm with £11 given his toxic views on mental illness in the summer. Instead, I came to Champion Hill, paid my £11 there instead and stuck money in your charity buckets. Why? Because your club is about the wider community and not a vehicle for someone's ego.

    I was surprised how many Hendon supporters were seduced by the quality of facilities on show. As I've said before, he is free to do what he wants with his money and it is refreshing to see one of these money men invest in facilities as well as players - however, I simply cannot see this project as anything other than massaging his own fragile ego.

    Over the weekend he was congratulating himself for breaking the club transfer record by paying £27,600 for Dean Inman from Maidenhead United. 'A regular Conference National player' he said. I can't fathom why he needed to:

    a) make the signing given they are going to walk the league and
    b) why he needs to pay the equivalent of between 7 and 14 weeks budget of the majority of other clubs in the division in one hit for a player he doesn't need (covering suspensions aside)

    Maybe he's been mugged off - we've got a player that played 20+ games in the Conference last season for Boreham Wood this season. We paid nothing for him, and we're paying comparative peanuts to him. It wouldn't be the first time given he paid us a sizeable four figure fee for a player in December last year for a player who is currently playing with us and is still paying his wages whilst he contributes nothing to their cause... that's only half the story as well - probably best not to go into any more detail on a public forum.

    His comments in that BBC article around speeding were simply pathetic. "The speed limit should be adhered to but I can't guarantee it won't happen again" - that's like what my six year old son said to me when I was talking about who to invite to his birthday last week. "Oh, we can't invite M... because I might not be able to stop myself from running into him and pushing him over".

    Not to mention his comments on BT Sport when they drew at Hungerford. "Oh, we're playing against 12, 13, 14 men every week. We've been cheated here." Amazingly our 12th,13th and 14th man conspired to give a penalty against us on NLD and not give an apparent stone-waller in our favour.

    I'm generally enjoying this season, Hendon are going well. But this oaf is sucking the life out of the rest of it. What is shaping up to be a decent battle between us, yourselves, Leiston, Staines and one or two others is going to count for nothing. I would be fine if he had an ounce of humility and respect, but he just doesn't. At least Terry Brown a few years ago was a gentleman and appreciated the priviledged position he was in.

    Again, I wish all long-term Billericay fans well, but the sooner Tamplin fucks off out of our league, the better for all concerned. Getting someone on board to belatedly take care of your PR doesn't make you classy all of a sudden.

    There's a few vindictive pricks on this thread.

    Being in the steel business, I'm interested in how he can create such wealth shipping out a few tons of beams and columns per week. In the steel business - if you flaunt your wealth you get cut out of deals as you're seen to be making too much and rubbing your clients purchasers noses in it. There is no money in steel.
