    Gary Johnson phone call - funny

    You don't need a licence to listen to iPlayer radio and, unless it's changed, you don't even need a valid email address. Just something that looks like one, so whistle.happy@bristol.co.uk for example. I used an old one that's defunct as there is (or was) no validation email.

    More problems for Truro City

    And.... Reported today that LIDL has changed their mind and do now want the site but not until May 2019 so they could play back there for the remainder of the season. Was it SOAP that ended its introduction with "Confused? You will be"

    Gary Johnson phone call - funny

    Currently live on Radio Cornwall phone in; it is the 12 noon show on here but won't be on listen again until after 3pm when it's finished. https://www.bbc.co.uk/schedules/p00fzl77 What's funny is that they didn't mean to call him; the producer called the wrong person and the presenter asked him what his problem was (I don't have a problem?) and then asked him about his skip company (I don't own a skip company) whereupon Gary asked if it was April 1st. Turned into a discussion about Torquay. The producer had even called him five minutes before to check he would be okay to speak at five past twelve but didn't say what it was about. Only a couple of minutes and 'tis funny. Skip guy on now; not as interesting. (Yes I know that he is no longer our manager etc etc etc I just don't have the words to express how much I like this post!) Edit: it is right at the start - first call.

    Hot off the press; Lidl out and nobody else in. Just to prewarn you there is an "effect" towards the end of the piece which should be "affect" and I haven't corrected it. The latest from Chairman, Mr. Peter Masters... WE HAVE been advised by Jonathan Cox, Helical Retail, that Lidi will be issuing a termination notice which effectively brings the current Treyew Road Lidi/Helical contract to an end and will allow Lidi to seek alternative sites around Truro. Helical have again confirmed that their Development Contract with JIL remains in place until September 2019 which could mean that no building will take place at Treyew Road for the foreseeable future. We will now discuss this latest position with our advisors, League and JIL and decide the best way forward. Finally we wish to make it clear that this latest news does not effect the Stadium for Cornwall or Truro City FC’s role in it.

    Definitely - all good ex league clubs not burdened by massive debt. Torquay don't own their own ground but it's on long term lease from the council; this has the advantage that nobody can run up a huge debt against it. You'd pay a tenth of the price for any of those that you would have to pay for Rovers and spend a bit more and you'll be in L1 in five years with your own ground and no debt. The one advanatge of Rovers over these is that they currently have a 6,000 crowd but you can grow that.

    Not that I want a football club but if I did then I would want something with, as you say, decent crowd, own ground and little debt. As when Vince bought FGR. Aldershot is averaging just under 2k crowds in the National League, own their own ground, have a decent amount of league history and as they've been in admin won't have much debt. If you have £20m burning a hole in your pocket buy them and take them back into the league with the £12m you save not refunding the Al Qadis debt in order to get the stadium back. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aldershot_Town_F.C. Where clubs are as debt ridden as Rovers then the usual approach by a potential purchaser is to drag out the negotiations until the club finally tips into administration and then can be bought cheaply as Mike Ashley did with House of Fraser. I can believe that there are interested parties at the right price but I would be very surprised if they wanted to buy them as is.

    It actually looks like that visit from the real world in the form of the police has served to curb his usual liar liar pants on fire tendencies of late.

    It's strange how quickly your idols fall. To me this man was a legend for his note perfect rendition of "Thank You Matty Taylor" but now he has revealed himself as being unable to spell, punctuate, or use words for numbers when they are twenty or below. The arch buffoon.

    I'm rather more amused by his claiming that "BRFC has minimum debt"; £10m - £12m is the current estimate. Asset value against which this is charged: £10m. This is on a par with Henbury Idiot claiming that the way the Al Qadis are running the club is "sustainable". Losing £2m a year is "sustainable". Either these people are incredibly stupid or they are incredibly wealthy.

    Dunder - All very silent

    No, or any organisation. It's a PR box tick; I have to put it on my tenders and as long as there's some acceptable guff there then it scores the 0.5% weighting that sort of thing gets. It doesn't get followed up, the only value is that you can put a statement on your website saying that working in the community is one of the criteria upon which you appoint contractors or suppliers. And "you really value this sort of involvement"; even though you don't actually give a stuff. If someone is going marvelous work in the community but costs 10% more then they ain't getting it. If Dunder bid 10% more than the next one they get it. It's basic common sense for anyone who lives in the real world rather than the pink and fluffy version of reality.

    That's just £14k a year; I expect every person on this board who has a job earns more than that.

    I agree. Fans of other clubs, and I'm thinking of one prowed one in particular, are failing to see the difference between losing £600k a year and losing £2m a year. The former you can tolerate with some wealthy local businessmen putting their hands in their pockets; the latter is a fast track to forfeiting your ground.

    I don't think they need to; if it folds tomorrow a new team will be started and get a berth in the SWPL. Truro will still have its football team whatever happens. The only reason they're not in the SWPL now is because they sold their ground to fund their rise and that sale came with a staged payment of £2m on development starting which has underpinned the £250k a year injection. It's had ?ten years as a toy of rich men and absolutely the fans have enjoyed the ride but it's all been through selling the ground and you can only sell it once. Rovers with the £10m charge on their ground against £12m of debt have effectively done the same in a few short years after decades of careful management. It's rank mismanagement on both counts and it's only because your average football fan cheers the victories whilst ignoring the accounts that clubs get bankrupted in plain sight.
