Quoted from KingstonMariner

Not unwilling Barra. I think you're being very honourable in praising Sharon and her team. Fair play.

But it's a bit like saying the French won at Austerlitz purely because of the efforts of the Grande Armee soldiers. Yes they were the best trained army in Europe, but if Napoleon hadn't put them there and given them what they needed, it wouldn't have happened. To stretch this metaphor even more, John Fenty is Louis XVI.

PS, you yourself highlighted Cloudy's contribution, and he specifically said the abars were a shambles before.

Which was based solely upon being a long term customer in both the Main stand facilities and more latterly the Findus. They could have been making pots of money but it wasn't the impression I got being a bar fly!

I don`t think the Trust and the board should sit on different sides of the fence and it should always be in the best interests of the Club that they remain United BUT when there are issues the Trust should be pushing a lot harder for answers. I am not impressed at all in the apparent lets just be thankful and take whatever we get attitude of late. The team are mid table in League 2 the gates are dropping the moaning is louder than for a long time but still the let`s be grateful brigade tell us to shut up and put up such is the joy at being back in the league.Well im sorry but GTFC have been around since 1878 and the blame for our fall to non league can be levelled mainy at the majority shareholder. He hires and he fires and the Trust with a place on the board need to challenge key decisions if the members they represent have a genuine gripe.

The Club appear to be treading water and I am sure if/when the news on the ground is settled we will see movement and a probable investment in players to boost numbers through the gates? JF will see a new ground as his legacy and for him it will probably cancel out the relegation to non league.For many of us we won`t see it that way but we will get where he is coming from.The Trust have a massive part to play in how this football club progresses and they will be stronger doing that from the inside in my opinion.

It really feels like were going backwards on and off the pitch I have never been so bored with what is on offer are the vast majority wrong again in terms of how they see the team/manager/player investment? Well if they are you can bet they won`t want to devalue the product and maybe that`s why hundreds of them have simply stopped going instead.

Beating FGR at Wembley felt like a massive outpouring of relief combined with a shedding of great embarrassment for a loyal army of fans..Glory didn't come into it..
