    Even for the Ricay circus they have excelled with this sacking and statement.
    O’Hara has no integrity and must be terrified. I’m intrigued to find out how his eventual departure will come about?
    Wonder if he is still being paid in cash when he is not at home?

    Harry Wheeler was a total disaster at Maidstone.

    I watched Dover dismantle his Maidstone "team" at the Crabble over the Christmas period (I think he was shown the door after that).

    The atmosphere that day was particularly poisonous, as the Maidstone fans had had more than enough of his bizarre interviews and general dugout cluelessness. Dover were struggling back then too but clearly a division above Maidstone on the day.

    Hard to see him getting another coaching gig above the Essex League unless he's drawn out of the Tamblin managerial tombola again in 6 months time.

    Not sure it's that easy to step down as owner, without either closing the club down or finding someone to take it off his hands. Throwing a sulk almost like someone on some form of comedown and stomping off is easy though.

    Rumour is that a Glenn Tamplin, local business man, will take over and install young hungry Harry Wheeler as manager ...

    Seems unlikely, I read he's a devout Christian so he's most likely your quiet type who likes to do good works out of the limelight.

    How can you 'step down' from owning something, anyway?

    If you haven't sold it or given it away, you're still the owner.

    I suspect all it means is he is not putting in any more cash, if he even has any more to put in.

    At least the new manager can send his son back to the academy.

    I have dealings with a long standing BTFC fan professionally. Last time Glenn looked like he was stepping down, he was aware of a long standing and wealthy fan who was willing to step in and keep the club afloat. Hopefully the fan is still lurking and a viable club emerges out of this situation.

    I think I'd prefer it if they want back to being a normal club whose revenues aren't being artificially inflated by a rich benefactor.

    Agreed, hence the phrase viable club. I also believe that was the plan.

    It's worth noting that October 1st will be the first anniversary of the date our then benefactor was going to liquidate DHFC if no deal had been struck to return to SE22.

    I suspect the point is that it will take a rich benefactor to keep them from going bust. The accounts are likely to be a car crash.

    Obviously all sensible people need to hope Billericay FC cease to exist in entirety and forever.

    Scum club. Scum fans. Hanging too good for them.

    Fuck off Billericay. The future is ours. :D

    The let them sink back to a level where they are sustainable without a rich benefactor and build from there.

    Hopefully Glenn will capitalise his debt - he may as well as there probably aren't many assets to claim against - they don't own the ground. If not, they may well fail. Which will knacker up the income projections of every team et pay them at home.

    The forthcoming accounts are likely to show a substantial debt being capitalized at DHFC, as it was when the initial limited company was founded.

    I'm not talking about somebody maintaining a presumably ridiculous budget, I'm talking about somebody being able to stop the club from going bust if and when the shit hits the fan. I'd rather they were able to keep going as a club, as I would be with any club, rather than have to start from scratch.

    There are plenty of decent Billericay supporters, we've talked to them. Call me a communist but I don't get my jollies from clubs going out of business, no matter how much of a whopper their former owner might have been.

    That's pretty much what I was saying. If they have to lose players because they don't have the money to pay them, then let the club get relegated a couple of times until they find a sustainable level and rebuild from there.

    Before it turned into a circus, I had a couple of enjoyable trips to Billericay and I certainly wouldn't want to see the club go bust.

    You can't just lose contracted players though, you have to pay them off. If Tampz isn't going to stump up for that and whatever other creditors there are then they are in all kinds of trouble. Would also be surprising if there aren't all kinds of funky ways that he's put money into the club which will need addressing.

    I fear there'll be an AFC Billericay (if the supporters can be arsed) plying their trade in the Essex Senior League and possibly groundless before too long. Pretty crap trade off for three years of being a laughing stock and a solitary promotion.

    Very telling and extremely on brand for Tamps. I almost feel sorry for Billericay’s fans. But then I remember how the fawning simpletons denied this was always an inevitability...

    They won't be arsed and you won't see any buckets asking for money either, any effort to save a club will be too much for the Essex scum.

    Try talking to some of them, rather than generalising based on a handful of headbangers. Life, eh.

    I'll never forget the speed in which their stadium emptied out with ten minutes still to go when we beat them 2-0. The real fans stayed and the gloryhunters were off like a shot.

    The only ones that stayed are the ones that had to wait for a train. Billericay have 150 "real" fans and they did diddly squat to stand up to Tamplin.

    Nearly every other club has someone on the right side of history. For example, those boycotting St Albans due to the price increases.

    Billericay FC not so much.

    Scum FC.

    Don't forget B.I.G is an Essex man. He knows their mindset!
