Very confused - what is GI's game?

Morning all from a regular viewer but infrequent poster. I have a few thoughts and they are nothing more than that.... Personal, and company taxes can be a real pain - ask Harry Redknap.... I think that with various business assets that GI have their tax bill might well be higher than they feel com...

There are also the tax benefits. A lot of clubs are bought because they run at a loss and can be used to offset the profits of the parent club, thereby lessening the tax due.

28 days?? So what? If they had taken 7 days people would accuse them of rushing it, or having already arranged it prior to the sacking. IMO 28 days is easily acceptable to make necessary decisions over the clubs future

They've bought in a new winger, on the face of it a pretty decent one too.
Care to share a name?

BARROW V TORQUAY Match day thread.16 Sept 2017 ko 3pm

I would concur with a few 'miraculous' injury recoveries. I reckon we'll win this one, maybe 2 or 3 to 1 (being 1-0 down at half time and the players receiving their first proper bollocking as a Torquay United player).

Very confused - what is GI's game?

This what I call a proper thread.. ..actually some good talk going on here ... My question is direct , what if the council do not sell gi the ground. What happens then ?

Very confused - what is GI's game?

It's a business decision. They see investing in Torquay United as a way to make money. It's a long-term investment, reliant on building a new ground/leisure complex/whatever money generating scheme the Council will allow in return for redeveloping Plainmoor. Despite what some seem to believe they su...
