  In hindsight you might be right, but all any chairman can do is appoint a manager and support him with the funds to do his job. Personally, I would much prefer Town to compete with a budget that gives them a chance of challenging for promotion, wouldn't you?
    The most disastrous managerial appointment John Fenty made was Mike Newell, and that appointment was greeted with enthusiasm and excitement on here. None of us can see the future, we can only do our best.
   In my opinion, the other two real mistakes that he made were to penny pinch on Russell Slade's salary at just the wrong time and to sack Neil Woods as he was in the middle of putting together a team that would have been a real challenger this season with a couple of key summer acquisitions. Instead, we ended up assembling yet another brand new squad with another new management team which may or may not pay off in the end if given the time to find out. But John Fenty is just as much of a Grimsby Town fan as any of us and the personal abuse and sarcasm he has to take on here is simply ridiculous. It's the Nick Colgan/Peter Bore syndrome all over again except that this is much more serious as the entire future of our team is a stake.
       I just think people need to think far more carefully before they post.

I'm a bit concerned.

If I nominated anybody in a popular weekly Fishy thread for being a tw@t, Would that be considered:

A. Libel
B. A bit unpleasent/rude/abusive.
C. A bit of fun. (That I'm sure the thread is meant to be.)

Of choose he is, it's the made up "facts"he has objected to as well as the personal abuse. Posts will be removed if appropriate and the offending member warned, then banned if there are further instances.

The mods totally ignore whats been said and will join in to keep in with the crowd

negativity, and refrain from getting involved in any nastiness and backbiting that

AN EPITAPH FOR ALL GTST MEMBERS

Paranoia is a thought process believed to be heavily influenced by anxiety or fear, often to the point of irrationality and delusion.

Really? You've not mentioned it. Perhaps you should point this out?

The thing is some posters on here post utter drivel, but at the end of their day its there opinion.

You only have to go to game and listen to some of the utter s.hit people shout at the games, some of them are no doubt on here, its best just to ignore them and carry on as its only small section.

Although he has to take some if not most of the responsibility for the state of the club, I do feel for John as we all know he's Town through and through.

Anyway UTM, and keep the faith.
