OK, so whose sock puppet is David Davies, then?

"Just catching up on this thread"
You joined on 30 December 2018 and your sole post on this board is an attempt at correcting a Lawyer who attended a dozen sports-club-related Windings-Up at the Rolls Building and the RCJ in December alone.

The Personal Bankruptcy limit was, as you incorrectly identified, increased to £5,000 some time ago.

However, the Corporate Insolvency threshold remains £750.
BTFC is a Limited Company not an individual, a Legal Person not a Natural Person.

The lower limit applies.

A most curious intervention on the part of the novitiate.

I shall defer to a Redditor upon the subject :

He's a Dulwich supporter. I'm sure you're right about lots of things but perhaps, if you wanted to draw attention to his long-forgotten post, you could have just said it was inaccurate. Otherwise you look a bit mad.

More to boost his ego by getting his mug on the telly I'd guess.

To be honest though you can see it's potentially quite entertaining TV. Probably not in the way that Tamplin imagines though.
He just can't stop meddling. They're on a good run of results since Wheeler returned as manager, but instead of just sitting back and letting him get on with it he has to make it all about himself again. GTFC.

We know how this is going to end up.
I think we've known that from the moment BTFC became GTFC. I'm still sore that he denied me my greatest footballing hope of seeing the Hamlet crowned Isthmian League champions, and at some point Billericay will go into administration or liquidation just like Hornchurch did a fortnight after inflicting our heaviest ever defeat in the 2004/5 FA Cup .

The accounts from supporters in here have not been corroborated, in particular about attacking a minor and a disabled fan. The Non-League Paper reported this as a fact two weeks back, and published an apology at the weekend for not sufficiently checking the facts.
I was at the match and this incident did indeed take place. In fact it was two Billericay players who jumped the fence though only one was involved in the incident.

The ball went over the fence and a kid was playing with it for no more than a few seconds when the Billericay player decided to jump the fence. Immediately and aggressively going after the boy. It was at the same time as the majority of fans were moving round to swap ends, so several people were able to step between the player and the boy. It took at least five minutes to calm the player with stewards being involved eventually walking him down the tunnel.

With several stewards involved and cctv there is plenty of evidence.

Their story was in fact a non story and they appeared to have done nothing substantial to have checked the facts for themselves.

It’s wrong to gloat about other clubs attendances. Where were the other 2500 earlier this season at Tooting?
Billericay aren't playing 8 miles away in someone else's ground. Personally I don't really care what their attendance figures are, and 829 is comparable to what other play-off contenders like Bath, Chelmsford and Wealdstone are getting; but those are stable clubs with a loyal long term support. We're in the final month of the season, Billericay are pushing for promotion via the play-offs, and 829 is well below their own seasonal average. Nothing about the club appears stable and you can't plan or budget sensibly for the long term if large numbers of supporters are suddenly going missing.

It remains to be seen whether our own club can sustain the attendance figures of recent months, but those who've flocked back can hardly be accused of glory hunting when we've been in a relegation battle ever since our return, and given how our attendances have risen steadily over a 10 year period I find it quite annoying for our own longer-term supporters to question the loyalty and commitment of those who've discovered the club more recently. The newcomers deserve a bit more respect. We get enough sneering remarks from outside the club without those inside it reinforcing the narrative.

If I was a Billericay fan I'd be very worried about a number of aspects of the club. Thankfully I'm not. Hopefully they won't go bust, but I reckon it's only a matter of time before they're back in the Isthmian League with their financial doping predecessors Margate and Whitehawk, playing in front of 300 again, and I for one intend to gloat when it happens because they've made their bed and can bloody well lie in it, having cheated our club out of the Isthmian Championship along the way thanks to huge quantities of cash from highly dubious sources.
