Ascend, tell your mate John that my offer of a one to one thread is still on the table.

I'm not interested in raking up the past, I'm more concerned about the future direction of the club.

I also know the game well enough to know which questions to ask and can be answered.

So Ascend, Sonik or whoever, tell John I'm here ready and waiting if he wants to be transparent.

I'm just sick of the debate, sick of being called toxic and sick of being threatened with "be careful what you wish for".

I want what's best for the club and I don't think the status quo is it.

Yours..
A concerned and disgruntled fan who wants a brighter future for GTFC.

Why is it that anyone daring to question what is going on the club , they get called Key Board Warriors .....?. It's every fans right to ask valid questions isn't it ? Or do we live in north Korea ? .

Using bignot as an example against fenty is just senseless when so many fans wanted him gone. You've basically just used an example that does the opposite of what you intended and highlighted the difficulty of making the right decision when there's so much pressure coming from all directions.

John Fenty has put into the club what he can afford to and no more.

To suggest that he should put more in when he has clearly reached the limit of what he can afford is quite frankly insulting.

There is no rich person on the horizon to help him out. Like it or lump it there isn't an alternative benefactor of the club.

I suppose that is Fentys fault as well.

Do we really have to go through the Parker/Mullins debate all over again ????


Why?

As the person who used that phrase... I didn't say that the club is beyond question.  I said that people who say 'Fenty Out' don't offer any alternative solutions.  Chanting Fenty Out achieves nothing other than maybe make JF wonder if it's been worth putting a substantial sum of money into keeping the club afloat.  If he walks away and there is no alternative the club could collapse.  This was, I think, the meaning of the opening post.

I have criticised the club, managers and players here.  Many moons ago I wrote to the GET  as a teenager criticising how the club handled Kevin's drinkell.  However, I try to be constructive and respectful rather than simply slagging off people trying to do their best.

Quoted from Ascend
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.

The thing with Bignot is that the experienced, respected pros at the club did not like him, and I'd imagine it's hard for a chairman to ignore that. The results obviously didn't help.
