Dear John Fenty.

I think you have tried your best but clearly, from overwhelming historical evidence running a football club is not your forté.
The Fenty association with GTFC is not all negative though, I think Fiona does a sterling job in her ticket sales/club shop role.
In fact, like your master stroke of elevating Neil Woods from children's coach to first team relegation from the football league manager, why not give Fiona the chairman's role?
Personally, I used to watch GTFC between 30-35 times a season from being a young boy up until our last L2 game at Burton, since then, I have attended three games.
I hold you (and others) responsible for destroying a love affair I've had with Grimsby Town since 1972 which has seen me visiting 86 league grounds as well as travelling to Ibiza, a Devon tournament and various other pre-season venues.
I'm sure you're a wonderful person and a passionate fan of GTFC but there is overwhelming evidence that your association with the club has been a disaster.
I have sadly become part of the 'missing 2000' fans and until your link with the club has been severed, I doubt if I'll return.
Yours faithfully

STB (Jon Noble)

If so, I'm in.

i think it is fair to say  that we do have a club at the moment because john fenty  has put his money in the club, and  i thank him for that,,it may also be the case that we dont in the futuer because he wont any more.i wont thank him for that,,  There is no one out there that wants to put money into a sinking ship,, we cant keep hoping that there is , we have to face things as they are , i think personally  that he is a controll freak  and he will try to controll what is posted on this board if he can aswell,  and can anyone tell me what affect the supporters trust can do to help things when they clearly dont have cash to put on the table .. words alone wont buy players or get a new ground ??

You can dress it up and start nit picking about all this by u did this that or the other it still doesnt address that you havent doing the job given to you and in doing nothing its lowered the people's expectations of the fishy and will/has  put off people posting on it.
GrimRob does admit about it all being left and nothing done but as usual others cant admit to their own mistakes

At the risk of "biting", you have absolutely no idea how many posts have been removed or edited by us so you're talking out of you're hat.

Well done Flash mate but all this will be done for say a couple of days then the slippery slope will start again by them letting people posting what they want and doing NOTHING about it or even join in like they have done in the past

I think people are missing the point of his email somewhat. He's not kicking up a fuss at people having a go at him, in fact he admits that he's failed in there. It is people suggesting that he is trying to con the club that he takes offence to because there's absolutely no reason to believe that he is looking to take his loans back. At the end of the day, say he's failed - because it's true - but don't try to tarnish his name by giving him constant abuse.

Some people on here need to get a life, he worked hard to get the kind of money most of us could only dream of and what did he do with it? Put it into the club we all love. It's easy to say that you'd do the same, but is it worth keeping a club going to get so much abuse from a small section of the fans?

I think a few people on here are getting carried away. There was only around 20 people who contributed to the posts any way - hardly a sample of Town fans opinions. I suggest that some people on here take themselves too seriously. Its just YOUR opinion ffs


I remember when codalmighty was funny.

If contributors are still allowed to have an opinion - fine, however if we're only allowed to tow the party line then you might as well close down The Fishy.
