    When Yer Da owns a football club (thinly-veiled Glenn Tamplin Unappreciation thread)

    Unless I am mistaken, I could only find one thread here that included the search word 'Tamplin', that being the epitome of Brexit in non-league that is Billericay Town's new owner/manager Glenn Tamplin, who is seemingly aiming to bankroll them a place in the Football League.

    Only becoming aware of this guy when Billericay recently signed Jamie O'Hara from Banter FC, and also signing the absolute worst footballer ever to play for England, Paul Konchesky, then some awful pre-match male bonding session where he has the team sings a song by R Kelly (it says here) shouting "WE ARE BILLERICAY" in an utter cringe thing (you can find it on YouTube, but don't, it's the Fucking Last Thing), he has a social media presence on twitter which I was made aware of this morning when he reacted to the (inevitable) trolling that such self-made millionaires invite on twitter with the following delightful post where he calls out the haters as needed a mental health helpline, amongst other things:



    What a charming guy.

    I know little more about him, though have stumbled across an article on the Daily Mirror site (yes I know) where he talks about his 18m mansion.

    We touched upon him here and he has certainly gone on since to be one of the more depressing aspects of current non-league football.

      Billericay have also just got involved with slightly odd property developer Alan Bowers, who touted a bid to buy Orient a few weeks ago, not through anything so normal as press statements or non-disclosure agreements with the owner, but by using seven mouthy O's fans on Twitter as his unofficial conduit.

        Just as many sharks in non league football. They just have smaller teeth.

            Option 5 on his Twitter post is clearly incorrect. If you're a Benefit Cheat, then calling the job centre really won't help. They're liable to tell you to stop.

              Thread also features: "I don't like to brag and just so you aware I come for fuck all and worked my bollox off"

                      It has also meant the demise of Billericay's main stand. The one that was a mere 30ft wide. Sadly gone, probably like the club as well in five years time. Another Rushden and Diamonds in the making.

                          So depressing. Apparently he tried to buy a number of other clubs first including Dagenham & Redbridge, Brentwood Town and Bishops Stortford before finally settling on Billericay. Brentwood Town would have been nice as the original club was destroyed by estate agents Bairstow Eves (or Bastards Thieves as they used to be known) and they would have been just the right size to be grown into a football league club.

                            Ha ha, Billericay lose their opening fixture 0-1 at home to potless Kingstonian managed by the guy Tamplin sacked in order to install himself.

                            Fantastic.

                              You'd better see the photograph to see what he's done to the changing room. Words fail me....

                                Does this mean they're not doing very well?

                                  That looks like a kid's bedroom.
                                  I'm reminded of this.

                                        Thankfully the comments are generally of the what a twat variety.

                                          Is this the team that signed Pennant as well? dont wish liquidation on even the worst of clubs, but I won't be sorry to see this shower disappear. Even worse than that Forrest Green cunt.

                                            Yep. Plus Konchesky and O'Hara.

                                              Between Teresa Gorman and this vanity bollocks, not a town I'm in a hurry to visit.

                                                I'm not angling for a scrap here, I'm just keen to see how the football world sees my team, but how would Bury signing Pennant last season seem to you?

                                                  Sorry I don't really care who Pennant signs for, but I am bothered about rich bored benefactors who build up a club unsustainably and then it all falls to shit when their investment has mysteriously disappeared. Gretna, Rushden and Diamonds, Wexford Youths, this kind of bollocks rarely ends well.
