Quoted from mimma
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.


It is really.Surely part of his job is to secure new investment in the club? He is not rich enough to fund it on his own that would deliver the progress we all want, so it is more important than ever to get the investment that will make a difference.

It is not all about one rich individual coming in and waving a magic wand. Mike Parker had the money, a lot more than Mr. Fenty and no doubt had his own contacts to bring in more forward investment, but we know how that ended.

I am sure we are all grateful to Mr. Fenty for his finance up to this point, but it doesn't look like it is enough to get the club moving in a positive way.

We are just discussing the clubs future, some may think we are happy to have a club at all, and some want to see some progress towards a brighter future.

Before anybody says anything, I want Slades team to win every game and romp through the divisions; however this is unlikely if we don't have the investment needed. This discussion forum will have no effect whatsoever on the teams performance on the pitch.

If Mr. Fenty is pinning all his hopes on the new stadium, what is the latest news on that?

Quoted from sam gy
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.


There's no chairman to ignore those sorts of thing!


More words and less meaning, communication disappearing.

Silence is not sacrifice.

I don't think anyone has suggested he put more of his own money in. I suspect that's another Fishy myth.

I sometimes wonder if some fans have lived in some sort of time warp where the Fenty era hasn't happened, or did the various appointments and sackings not happen or the fall outs with local media or the share thing or the flag or Checkatrade?

I don't know very much about Mike Parker's financial situation. I always thought he didn't actually have a business of his own..


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

Once upon a time there was a football club........then Fenty turned up.

He had a big wad of cash in his hand promising a bright and rosey future.  Directors loans turned into a pawn shop scenario, every asset the club has is now security for the gallant Fenty loans.

Maybe those foolish enough to invest in a season ticket should perhaps ask for their 'investment' to be underwritten, seems to be okay for him.

Fenty out and take your flipping strangle hold with you.

Quoted from Ascend


John Fenty does not treat the supporters disrespectfully. He is approachable and I am sure that his rationale is to treat as he finds. If you treat him poorly, then why would he treat you with respect.

Neither should he pamper to the supporters whims. Because in the fan base, there are hundreds of opinions and alternative opinions on how he should direct the club. What would you have him do, respond positively to all suggestions? Of course he can't. He has to be his own man and direct the business in the manner which he see's fit.

Keep going John, you are doing a fine job


If you call doing a fine job struggling in league 2 then you must either be a troll, related to Fenty or work for him as no sane Town fan thinks we are in a good enough position for them to say Fenty is doing a fine job.


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.

Quoted from Ascend


We are not Barnsley. We don't have other significant investors like Barnsley do in addition to Patrick Cryne.

Plus, there are many people in Grimsby that are just as grateful to John Fenty for keeping our club going as some Barnsley fans are to Patrick Cryne. Reading Patrick Cryne's letter, it is plainly clear to see that some of his clubs supporters weren't in support of him either. "People are not shy in coming forward and telling me they appreciate my efforts, even if I have fallen short of their aspirations"

Be careful what you wish for.


When you say people you mean your wife don't you, with you struggling to get past pre ejaculation as you are too busy thinking about Fenty. Oopss you did it again.

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?


Key board warriors, the sort of thing an internet policeman with sand in their girl private would say.
