Quoted from arryarryarry


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.


If we'd have had the extra half million per season we'd just have spent it on wages in League 2 instead of the National League. Whatever income we have primarily goes on wages. The only difference is the more money we have the better (in theory) players we can afford.

Quoted from grimsby pete
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


It's a situation that he has created to protect his investment and the long suffering fans are powerless to do anything about it.  In the meantime, he's not too happy that we've got opinions either.

I have no problem with Mr Fenty, if it wasn't him it would be someone else who I am afraid the fans would eventually moan about. The only problem I have is as to why he will not take the roll of chairman officially, what are the pro's and cons for both him and the club.

The comment, "paid off his loans" was a bit tongue in cheek, but are players wages that much different between the two leagues considering we would have likely been paying some top salaries for the players required to get us out of that league?

My only thought on this John and  understanding you will make honest mistakes. Is allow the football people around you make the football decisions. Might even be worth getting a football man on the board to be the face to face contact with the management team and to give you and the board football related advice.

Honest mistakes? Let's take the Bignot appointment as an 'honest mistake'. Appoint the bloke, sell his best player, let him have some money to spend and then sack him before the players he'd bought hadhad time to bond. Problem is that this is one of many that have happened over a long period.

Firstly, why the hell shouldn't John Fenty protect his financial support. If you was in his position wouldn't you do exactly the same? I would!

Secondly, where has all of this "football person/people" jargon come from? Hey if you want to call someone a "football person" then believe me, John Fenty is now a time served football person. Nobody understands the football business world any better that him.

Leave the bloke alone with this stupidy.

Let's get this right. In your opinion, because John Fenty has pumped millions into GTFC and the rest of the fan base can't afford to, then he's right and we're stupid.
