John Fenty in 'normal behaviour' shock.  Jeez guys, give the man a break.  He can't do right for doing wrong in the eyes of some.  John, if you read this (please bear in mind that I have 'previous' when the amber nectar flows), I for one see nothing wrong with wearing your heart on your sleeve.

Just think that the fact he posted at all says as much as you need to know. That's all. Back to the sun lounger and the Super Bock.

It's essentially an admission that as a forum we are collectively not mature enough to cope with him being involved.

I doubt we'll be mature enough without him involved either !
I hope John keeps posting, he speaks some sense.

I'd argue that it isn't normal behaviour for a senior figure at the club to post comments on a fans' forum and goad a handful of them in the process.

He has an official channel through which he can communicate (the OS) and he can even talk to the fans through the media (Telegraph, Humberside etc).

I appreciate that some fans like the fact that he posts on here, which suggests he's one of us. It's not that unusual, but the senior bosses that tend to do this open themselves up for more abuse and criticism in the long run, unless they have a strategy.

And judging by his track record, I'm guessing John doesn't have one.

I don't regard the comment he made as "  goading the fans". I really think that some on here need to lighten up!

Is there that much difference to posting on here and tweeting? The media is full of tweets from public figures every day, some of them much more controversial than saying "quiet on here" (which it always is anyway after Town win!).

You could say that after we lose many on here go very quiet

Fair enough if you don't agree Garth, but it's not exactly 'bull'. It's just my perspective on things.

As a senior figure at the football club it's vital that he comes across as professional. He reflects our football club. That doesn't mean he can't engage with the fans on here, but it does mean that people are constantly judging him, and therefore judging our club.

I don't want to see our major shareholder, or any senior figure, responding to fans on here who wind him up. He should rise above that. So it might only be 'friendly banter' but it does more harm than good in the long run.

If/when Town lose a couple on the bounce, he'll get more personal criticism and vitriol on here from those fans he's targeting than he otherwise would if he didn't acknowledge them.

Just to be clear - I'm perfectly happy for him to engage with fans on here. But he needs to be careful when he posts, and what he talks about, otherwise the whole situation will escalate and before you know it someone else will post defamatory comments and he'll again be asking for the site to be taken down.

It all might seem fine right now while everyone's feeling relatively positive following a couple of good results, but wait for the moment we lose two on the bounce and this message board will become a very different forum.
