Quoted from LondonMariner43
I would have some sympathy with the Fenty out brigade if they have an alternative.  Have they got funds to invest?  Are they willing to organize a fan ownership? Are they scouting the world for a new wealthy investor?

Or are they just keyboard warriors happy to slag off the guy who put his own money into keeping the club alive?

But with the 'benign loan' stumbling block in the way, there is no alternative. New money has come into the club, but the new investors didn't hang around very long.

So you think JF should give the club away and write off his own investment?  Everyone seems happy to play god with someone else's money.  So far as I am aware, no one has ever come along with substantial cash and offered to buy the club outright including repayment of loans.  A few people come along with tens and hundreds of thousands but no-one has come with multi millions.

Anyway, what good is done unless an investor is willing to bankroll the club indefinitely.  In the long run, the club needs to live within its means and the stadium project is the best way to make that happen.

No again, just some with an agenda, and some because it relieves their frustration,  and he is their target because he is the captain in the wheelhouse responsible for trip (stormy or calm) along with his crew Slade and Wilko.
For what its worth it is what it is, and the true barometer of decline will be seen and acted on by the size of feet fall at games, thankfully it has not reached that stage yet.
Carry on Captain John there will be  some more storms and sickness felt before we navigate into clearer calmer waters

Quoted from Ascend
Players will make errors, even the best of them.

Managers will make mistakes, even the best of them.

Chairmen and boards will make mistakes too, even the best and richest of them.

Football supporters can be and are the most fickle and emotionally reactive people you will ever meet. Some are capablle of creating an unhealthy toxic atmosphere.

Be very very careful what you wish for. Because time and again, toxic elements get their own way, only to be left looking foolish with egg on their face


The fans will do as they please, thank you very much.

We are fans that love and  comment on the club. The same for the other 91 clubs from Manchester Utd. to Forest Green Rovers.

No we haven't got the money, acumen, contacts or skills required; our part of the bargain is to support the team through thin and thin, and that is what we have done.

I can not see what this Fenty out will achieve,

I do not like his non chairmanship of OUR club, I wish he would take his loans and turn them into shares  or better still write them off,

The trouble is we will never find anybody to invest in our club while he is here because he is a control freak,

So he has to walk away first and then we will see if anybody is willing to invest.,

He will not do that so we are stuck with him I am afraid

Does that make up for 6 years in non league where JF said after the Burton game we would lose £500,000 per season so that makes £3,000,000, could have paid off his loans.
