Thanks for reminding me that Exeter are a L2 club. I knew something was amiss when I couldn't find them in the Champions League fixtures for tonight, ya condescending male private. Their club under fan ownership has taken them up to L1 via non-league on a 53% stake in the club whereas we went to non league from the Championship on JFs 42%. (Numbers according to wikipedia so could be off.)

I don't think you'd be able have a completely fan owned club in lower league football in England as there is too much money about (FGR for example).  You'd need trust membership in the tens of thousands to be able to compete with those figures. A power share with a significant investor or a consortium would probably be required in order to be competitive - which is what Exeter have.

Quoted from Ascend
Exeter City are very marginally a supporters trust club, but with some significant shareholders also propping it up. Oh and by the way, they are a League 2 club. Their scope to advance and be sustained will be very limited as a supporters trust club.

Swansea are not a supporter trust owned club.


Not now but they certainly were a majority owned fans club during their rise up the divisions

Nowt Pete. I just thought it was funny when I reported it last night, but it seems to gav sparked a self-righteous element to perk up.

I know some fans don't blame him for allegedly responding in the way he did, but that still doesn't make it right.

He's the majority shareholder of this proud football club. He shouldn't be swearing at fans, no matter what the situation. If he's riled by fans, engage with them. Talk to them. Find out what makes them chant 'Fenty out' and then tell them why it's unfair, or hurtful.

Don't just swear and leave. If you have to leave, do it - and then open the dialogue today, or speak to the media to give your side of the story.

Not always agreed with you Ascend but i agree with what u said.  The only thing i would add is the PR side of the club.....or even try to get other investers interested abroad.  My concern is how long can he keep town going before he cannot financially help.  If there was some form of invester....if JF was to call it a day then atleast there is another who may keep the club going.  If JF was to stand down at the of the season we'd be facked imo.

Quoted from KingstonMariner
I saw it Long Eaton.

They weren't abusing him as he was getting in his car, unless you consider 'Fenty out' to be abuse. There was no aggression on their part and they weren't in his face or even that close to him. Just exercising their democratic right to voice an opinion after standing in the rain having travelled across the Pennines.

There'd been a fair bit of 'Fenty outs' throughout the game on and off.


Cheers Kingston, you know sometimes how these things sometimes start with "some bloke on twitter".

I guess JF was voicing his democratic right too! Those fans should be greatful they didn't have in their possession any flags as they would have had them deconstructed!

Yeah, it's weird. A good old fashioned analogue rumour!
