Dear Rob,

I have been asked by staff at the club to review the posting on your website (The Fishy).

It is with huge disappointment what I have read and I couldn’t be more appalled, by the offensive nature of many of the threads and postings, some of which are abhorrent to say the least and others no doubt liables me.

I am aware that you are able to trace the IP addresses of those posting the messages.

Could you please with immediate effect remove all threads or postings accordingly and retain them for potential evidence together with their IP addresses and contact details and confirm to me that you have done this, as I may be forced to make challenge in due course if the site is not moderated appropriately in the future.

For the record I have also retained screen scrapes of the threads.

I am at a loss as to how anyone can deserve such accusations or that they can be left to accumulate.

Would the same people abuse the clubs sponsors that provide sponsorship and expect them to carry on next year, I think not.

I have only ever worked in the best interest of our football club and will continue to do that, if that requires me to leave the Board of Directors then I would do this. I am not hanging on over other options available to our club.

Its not so long ago there were some suggesting that when I held 51% shareholding in the club, that this was a reason for lack of external interest/investment in the club. Now it’s my loans.

What are they going to say if I convert loans into shares now!!!! that I am vie for control.

The club has effectively been up for sale since I stepped down as chairman and there has been no credible interest in taking the club on. A prerequisite of anyone taking over is that they can demonstrate financial baking as I am sure everyone will understand. (That is backing to demonstrate they can finance the club going forward, not to pay back loans as I am sure some will cease on)

I realise during my time as chairman substantially we have failed on the field. Not a defence, but I have to say that the Board have always maintained a competitive playing budget available to each and every manager and ensured that the club can pay its bills during the whole of my involvement in our club.    

I know that’s not good enough, however while our club continues to provide a competitive budget and pay its bills, we have a football club to support and some day, with or without me as a Director, football fortune will return.

There are those that think Noddy and Big Ears are running the club, by god I would like to see them stand up to be counted.

In making decisions without responsibility and the financial implications we can all do better than those in charge, but with the facts and responsibility before you, chooses are not always quite so wide ranging or possible.

I am happy you post this email and would like confirmation of your action by return.

Regards

John Fenty

Yeah I would definitely be worrying about posts on a forum rather than the dire situation our club has been in the past few years

That is embarrassing!

I wish i had some financial baking  

Take the club from the championship to the conference then bring liable action against the fans!

The club should take legal action on its spellchecker!

Good on Fenty. Some people on here need to grow up.

Keyboard warriors. It's cringeworthy.

i think he has done a really good job at the club, and should be given the key to the city and a knighthood/ be carried around the town on the backs of fans chanting his name.

From now on any posts which libel Mr Fenty or any of the other GTFC board members will be removed. IP Addresses, names and e-mail addresses will be recorded and anyone who has been warned will be banned from the site. You may think you are hiding behind a made up name but you are not really.
