Quoted from gary_elton


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


What a load of tosh.

If he'd have not 'saved' us, we'd have gone into administration, cleared our debts and started again under a new owner. I'd have rather taken my chances than endured the rubbish this clown has presided over.

Fenty out.

There are clearly two camps on this.

There are those who say, like Alfie, that if JF had chucked it all in we would have gone into administration, cleared our debts and a new owner would have taken over.
Sounds very straight forward doesnt it?

On the other hand some say that there is no guarantee that we would would have come out of administration and that there might not have been a 'knight in shining armour' . Had that been the case the club would have disappeared and we would be a present day Chester starting all over again.

I guess the two camps could be the gamblers and the non-gamblers

Whatever you think of Fenty (personally, I have no complaints), no fornicator, with the exception of Mike Parker, has done anything much to help him.

That's not strictly true. I was stood behind him once in B&Q and he dropped a bag of nails on the floor. I picked them up, handed them over and he said thank you.


Mr McGee, don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.

I thought you were going to say you nailed him to a cross!

Just like that.... Now that fits my description of tosh...


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

Absolutely. Operation Admin does require a new owner to step out of the shadows and that is where the plan fails.

Of course it's tosh but unfortunately some of the jokers on here can't see it. They seem to think that once you go into administration the debts are cleared then along comes someone with the money to buy the club and everything will be ok. They even quote other clubs that have done this BUT there is no guarantee that this will happen.Clubs that went bust years ago are still in the football wilderness like Chester and Bradford P.A. It took other clubs like Accrington and Aldershot ages to get back into the league and they are still not really thriving.

Or the other angle they take is that there is a 'mystery man' who wants to take over the club but John Fenty keeps turning him down because his offer is not good enough.

So if I go to BP on Monday and offer Mr Fenty £1,000 to take the club off his hands does that make me the 'mystery man'. Any idiot can make an offer, doesn't mean it is a good one.
