I'd imagine if most people had put millions of their own cash in to prop up the club for no rewards, they would respond in a similar manner.

He's not perfect, but I don't think he claims to be....if someone has got the cash to take this club forward, then I'm sure we'd all welcome them, including Fenty. Don't think there's a queue though.

Why do people keep saying this, Mike Parker put £1 million in then left, the Mullens put money in and left, ask yourself why.


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

I don't see, and I never have seen, anybody stepping up to take of the majority of the club from Mr Fenty and give you what you want.

In John Fenty, what you have is a very passionate Grimsby man, with the financial wherewithal and business brain to keep Grimsby Town not only alive for the current situation, but cleverly prospering with his future plans.

With regards to managerial choices and matters, John will make good calls and bad calls, in what is a complete lottery. A world full of managers to choose from that have mostly failed, had a bit of a success, some mixed experienced or even complete learners at the start of their own managerial career. But let's not think for a single minute, that any of his choices in managers, were made out of anything other than great intention and a love and desire to see Grimsby progress.  Every single one of his appointments was made in hope that he had found the right man to get us competing for promotions and a little bit of cup glory.

Some people on here and in the fan base, are being extremely toxic in their opinions of John Fenty. Almost painting him as a bad person, that from some of your comments, you would think was intentionally trying to appoint poor managers. He isn't, and, with just 7 games played, there is absolutely no reason to write Russell Slade off yet either. Accepted, the season hasn't started in the way that any of us would have wished for. Of course we would have liked more wins and points, but the season has only just started, we've only played just 7 games. If as the season progresses, the situation doesn't improve, then I have no doubt that John Fenty will make the tough decision to let Russell Slade go,then once again he will try to bring in the next manager that he hopes is the right man for the job at that time.

There really is a lot of nonsense and ill thought out opinion spouted out on fans message-boards, and this particular thread is a first class example of this. Owning the biggest slice of a football club at our level, and even a long way above our level, is not cash cow in which you are going to reap the rewards in financial returns. It is actually situation where a man, with financial ability to assist and support the club that he loves, is prepared to invest some of his hard earned wealth, in the knowledge that he is very unlikely to see that money again, let alone make a profit from that investment.

As I have said in a post elsewhere, be very careful of what you wish for, as the alternative to John Fenty's ongoing support is likely to be extremely bleak.

Quoted from MarinerWY
Whatever you think of Fenty, shouting at him whilst getting in his car after a hard earned win on a grim Tuesday evening deserves a strongly worded retort.


100% agree.

Whatever your issues with Fenty chanting during a game or abusing him in public is not helpful to anyone.

If you are big enough to chant "Fenty Out", then be big enough to take his riposte.

Where did this claim of abuse come from? I said some lads chanted 'Fenty out' he shouted 'f off'. Unless you consider the chant abusive I suggest people stop using that word.


Då ska vi vända hem     Then we shall turn home
då vill vi dit igen             there we want to be again
Till det ställe som             To the place from
vi ifrån en gång kom     which we once came
     
För längtan finns             For the longing is there
hos folk som minns             in people who remember
Den tid som var             The time that was
finns i drömmen kvar     remains in dreams

Call it abuse, call it offensive, call it what you like, it deserves the reply it got

Do you really believe GTFC are 'prospering'?

I dont think anyone believes a club like ours would ever be a cash cow. Equally I do believe it can be run with imagination and really involving the community as an alternative to cutting every cost possible
