I've never hidden behind my fishy username and I won't hide behind political half truths either.

Facts are facts.

John Fenty was chairman when this great club were almost relegated from the football league if not for Luton's 30 point deduction.

The following season, Grimsby Town were the 91st of 92 and were relegated out of the football league!

5 years on, we are an established non league Conference outfit.

Hull City lie a universe away, they've got their act together so no issues there. I think they'll go down this year, hope so but they'll be looking at Championship football.

But Scunthorpe, who have been at least a division, mostly two, sometimes THREE divisions above us, I can't abide. It embarrasses me, humiliates our club.

I don't doubt JF had done his best but when is your best not good enough?

I've heared what's happened with Azza and his flat by the way.

A Wolves legend has just passed away. How much did he sell the club he 'loved' after investing £30 million.


The wife was going away for a girly weekend.
I jokingly remarked  'I don't know whether to spend it watching porn or watching football'
'you may as well spend it watching porn' she replied
That's understanding darling what makes you say that? I asked

She said 'Well you already know how to play football'

3000 fans £400 a year each as long as Fenty foregoes his loans.

If John would publically state what he's let this massively financially valuable club go for (to the nearest million), then maybe we'd find out?

Perhaps making the exact meaning of his 'benign' loans which according to latest accounts now exceed £3m would help?

Let it go for £0 JF. You've done enough damage, put it right by putting excrement loads of money in or don't and go.

Jack Hayward I guess you mean. He sold the club for a tenner in return for a guarantee the new owner would invest £30m in the club/team. I've no idea how much he spent himself on the club while he was chairman but it was a hell of a lot.

Pathetic argument
Yeah, I don't want the £3m back which I;ve pumped into the club...and by the way I've really appreciated the dog's abuse I've had on here on many occasions.

Fenty goes...asks for his loans back...club can't pay them..no-on else prepared to put any cash in...club goes into admin...wound up in High Court

Hello, Hereford, Darlington, Rushden

I'm not Fenty's puppy, just someone who does nolt see a viable (or has ever heard of) Plan B and, despite our current position, I'd much rather have a team to support

I think 6000 @ £200 is doable.

Only problem would be the elected board and what happens IF things don't work out? Not being negative at all mate. And am in no way or form suggesting I know the problem (though it's euro millions tonight!) or any beneficiaries that the club could turn to. Am sure there are money men around that could possibly gamble on the club and taking it forward. But, as mentioned by bpv, there are certain things standing in their way



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

He hadn't had dogs abuse, honestly I think he has got off lightly. You are talking about a chairman / owner that had taken Grimsby Town OUT of the football league! After a fortuitous reprieve the season before. He has had FIVE years to take this club out of the wilderness. We just get weaker and weaker and more reliant on him. Walk away, the club surely had no value? It loses money every week according to the PLC accounts?

It has no value? I'd like him to state his price for his benign loans, am alone in hearing people will not work with him? Mike Parker has a large holding, never heard a word from him which worries me more that JF's embarrassing and unprofessional rants.

Does it have to be one extreme or the other though?

Cannot a compromise be reached,something that the fans can buy into (not financially) and see a light at the end of a long dark tunnell?

I think what BPV is getting at is that we cannot go on with Fenty in charge forever, whilst making no progress at all.

Surely a restructure of some kind, an olive branch to other big investors and a willingness to put his big ego aside for the good of the club would help?

Or go the other way, and make serious investment in all areas of the club, especially on the playing/managerial front to force our way back into the league.This is the big issue for me - he seems happy to pay an awful lot of money for not a lot, whereas with some serious investment he could get the fans onside, give us a proper chance of promotion.

In any event, this situation cannot go on like this indefinately. Fans need hope, heroes on the pitch, and a feeling that we are heading in the right direction regardless of short term results.
