    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.

    Archie now been released.
    I genuinely feel sorry for the lad, maybe he has talent.. but who would take him on with his family baggage?

    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.

    If Tamplin still owns the club hasn't he effectively got rid of his own son?

    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.

    Still clinging onto their good players I see. Come on FA cup gods. Do your duty!

    Can't see them beating Sutton anyway.

    You say that, but when your big pay cheque is on the line...

    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 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".

    This is hilarious. Who could possibly have foreseen that a 35 years old ex-pro based in Staffordshire wouldn't have a lasting relationship with Billericay?

    It's classic Tamplin to waste money on these ridiculous vanity signings when you could get more suitable players for half the price, then show them the door five minutes later.

    Billericay game called off today as pitch ruined by 2 cars being driven on it. Who could it be ?

    Any idea who did it? Any one of a number of ex-players whose contracts were not honoured?

    They’re talking about getting rid of the muriel on Twitter.

    The muriel mustn't be destroyed. It's the Berlin Wall of non-league football. We should offer to take it off their hands.

    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.

    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 know

    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.

    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.
