Or it's going up for auction. He always thought he was going to be on Through The Keyhole, but instead his gaff ends up on Homes Under The Hammer.

If he's really good enough I'm sure someone will take him on - I'm sure clubs are well used to dealing with nightmare parents. There's a hell of a lot of kids out there with a bit of talent but not quite good enough though.

If he's good enough he'll be fine. Quite a few seem to think he is, so good luck to him.
I wish him good luck too but I can't help imagining that if a club had to choose between him and an equally player, they'd choose the other guy just to avoid the inevitable Tamplin circus.

Extract from Jermaine Pennant's book Mental from his time at the club. There's a few pages on his time there.

But I've got no time for the likes of Pennant either. Washed-up has-beens looking for one last pay day. He and Tamplin deserve each other. Unfortunately Hamlet were cheated out of the Isthmian League championship last year by Tamplin's tax dodging activities, I shall always be very bitter about that.

Oh no! FA Cup #Rickerty 5 Sutton United 2.
Attendance 1113 ........wow that almost covers Jake Robinson's wages! The consortium will sort this out.

Need to change the name of the thread to 'Billericay ex-Owner".

If Glenn really cared about Archie he could do what loads of middle class parents do. Allow Archie to pay for free (therefore not costing the manager of wherever he plays a penny of playing budget) and bankroll Archie's private life allowing him to concentrate on sport full time. But it's never about Archie, it's all about Glenn.

To be fair to him, ridiculous as the whole thing was, if he actually has paid off the highly paid players from his own pocket and handed the club over without any debt then that's a hell of a lot better than a lot of dodgy owners.
Whilst that's an improvement on the norm from the football supporters' point of view, there is the small matter of him liquidating several companies and writing off £millions of debts to both HMRC and other businesses whilst splurging ridiculous amounts of money on a vanity project. BTFC hasn't gone bust, I just hope the same applies to any other businesses whose employees may have been left out of work and out of pocket too.
