Quoted from sonik


He continues to thank the fans all the time Jase.  Clapping at the announcement of attendances every game being one instance.  I can also assure you that he does'nt expect thanking for what he contributes either.  He like you, me and others are dying for the success that we all crave.  I just hope that isn't to far away.  UTM!!


It is actually quite good to have a football club , and the one we all support now is thanks to JF's financial input... we would
have gone long ago if it were'nt for him... we all make mistakes... learn to live with them and try to overcome them... but it sure
makes a change to see a supporter for a chairman and not one who is just thinking £££££ and where the next middle/far eastern dollar is coming from

clearly he loves the club but clearly he keeps making bad decisions,perhaps take a back seat and let parker have total control for a while

not saying he hasnt made mistakes , we all do that , but at least he has kept us afloat during very dark times.....
no doubt someone will say he was responsible for the dark times... but another chairman who wasn't such an avid supporter
would have said enough a long time ago and there would be no GTFC at all...   so just a litttle thanks to JF  from
us amidst all the abuse wouldn't go slightly amiss that's all.... always easy to criticise when you havent got the funds to
do what he has done...  awaiting criticism for my comments... but its my opinion, that's all...   I do not
mean to have a go at any particular individual here... my post is just general....

we'd have gone long ago if we, the fans, stopped turning up.  it isn't just john "the saint" fenty.  if fenty wasn't chairman perhaps we'd have a man in charge who decides on a strict salary budget (players + other staff) of around £1.2m a year in order to break even so he wouldn't have to keep loaning the club £600k a year.  he says he's proud that we haven't entered administration.  i am too.  but spending £600k per year over what you can afford and being relegated from the league is not particularly impressive management

The only flaw in your plot Denbers is the word PERHAPS.   That has always been the risk.   I would be very loathe to say bye bye to JF on the premise that perhaps someone else turns up.

I'm in the Gary-Elton camp.   I hope now that in company with Mr.Parker JF can just for once have a bit of luck and have things go right for him.

WHS with knobs, bells and whistles on!

Some people ought to look at the club's outgoings and they might see things differently. I'm not saying any more than that but look at my earlier posts for a clue.

i think this has been discussed before.  something like 5 star fish loaned gtfc some cash a few years ago, gtfc couldn't repay it, the loan was turned into a sponsorship, fenty sold his share in 5 star fish and an agreement was set up by which mr john "the saint" fenty would receive £650k in pension payments...
