Thread: Billericay Town

    Whilst the new and improved facilities are of great benefit to the club and fans, unfortunately Tamplin's ego is an over-riding entity and he pays little heed to anyone. The big signings last season, Konchesky and O'Hara, didn't exactly shine against some of the smaller-funded teams though his pre-season additions should help make up for the shortcomings
    of those two players. Most players want to be on the pitch for as many games as possible, GT signed several lads on big money contracts who it seems could be earning their dosh through bench warming.
    I'm expecting Ricay to be involved in several high-scoring matches during the season with the occasional dismal flop, how GT reacts to a loss or two could be rather interesting to say the least. No doubt the BTFC publicity bandwagon will be in top gear over the coming months.

    Much prefer how Salford have gone about their business, they were close to promotion last season. Their renowned backers know the game and likely have good local contacts rather than having to resort to the wads-of-cash waving method for attracting players. Every year the Conference leagues (notably National and North) get tougher and tougher as FCUM found last season when they were expected to be front-runners. If GT believes he can buy his way up through the leagues he's in
    for a surprise.

    ive followed hornchurch for years and cant beat a saturday afternoon at bridge avenue always good banter in what is now a well run club with no debts and a very good youth system being bulit , when we had the money years of karl williams the only problems was he has had no money and everything was on the never never it has taken several years to finally sort the mess out . with GT he is suppose to be a multi millionaire and with the amount on money he spends on sports cars etc it seems so he also has a new investor who has bought 10% of the club so there is more money coming in to the club what ever happens with the club it will be interesting along with the plans with basildon council to re build the stadium to 5,000 seats and 3,000 standing

    Uncle Urchin and crew utilised the old 'robbing Peter to pay Paul' method of creative accounting, money initially emanated from many good folk who paid for windows....but never got them. Another chap that couldn't see past his own inflated ego. Histon also chased the big dream but have ended-up in the Eastern Counties Prem (Thurlow Nunn).

    Basildon council may well hold the key to 'Ricay's long-term future. Why would GT need a new investor or require such high
    home gates if he has so much spare money available to spend?

    One thing which aggravates me is this 'love' he claims to have for the club... The only reason he bought Billericay was because the deal to buy Dagenham fell through.

    The Class of '92 only own 50% of the club. Although I don't doubt their individual net worth will be great than GT, Peter Lim is the real wealth behind that venture. Did anyone know they've re-signed Jack Redshaw? A lot of us would've liked to sign him a few seasons ago.

    Brilliant result for the Ks. Tamplin and BTFC in general have been awfully quiet on Twitter since the 88th minute yesterday.

    Have you seen the murals around the ground? And also the giant eagle statue they have in the home dressing room.

    Luckily, no. Usually see a game or two per season and catch up with a couple of longtime supporters but won't be back until GT disappears off the scene.

    The irony of a convicted criminal using a meme of a convicted fraudster as a beacon for his dreams is fairly delicious. Not as funny as his (shockingly now-deleted) tweet about them never being off top spot all season, mind.

    Still, the similarities with what Frank The C**t did at Orient are chilling. It'll all end in tears.
