Glenn is is going to be on celebrity Apprentice and he is going to be a Dragon on Dragon''s Den next year.
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.If he's good enough he'll be fine. Quite a few seem to think he is, so good luck to him.
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.
But the same thing will happen at any other club. Glenn wants to be the manager. He will want his son to be in the team. He will want to paint images of himself on the changing room walls. Some fans won't like it. The rest of the league will resent the artificial success his money will buy. He will get the hump and leave. Repeat.
Yes what a decent chap he tells you he is. He is a Born Again Christian you knowTo 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.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.
