Daily Update

Ominous injury news - both Robbie Williams and Carl Fletcher are set to miss tomorrow's home game against AFC Wimbledon. Left-back Williams is also likely to miss Saturday's trip to Gillingham due to a heel problem, whilst Fletch is rumoured to be looking at a couple of weeks on the sidelines with a thigh injury.

But enough of this football nonsense! What is the latest on the takeover saga, I hear no-one ask. Well, in the aftermath of Saturday's Save Our Club meeting, the Argyle Fans' Trust have this afternoon released an interesting letter which has been emailed to all of the involved parties, including Brendan Guilfoyle. In the letter, which you can read here, the Interim Steering Committee have stated that, should a situation arise where Bishop International have the funds to complete the deal but the Football League refuse to grant their approval due to Peter Ridsdale's upcoming trial (for fraud), the Trust would be willing to buy the football club for £1. An unlikely outcome, perhaps, although the Guardian's Matt Scott appeared to hint last week that Ridsdale's appointment with judge and jury is a factor in the League's deliberations over whether to approve the proposed BIL/Riddler ownership structure.
