Sat at work having a discussion about the plight of Town, it got us thinking...

What is John Fenty actually doing to improve this club, in terms of gathering extra revenue, sponsorship even a buyer for the club?

- What local interest has he drummed up?
- Why are no successful local business men interested in being involved?
- Why are our attendances low, even though we sit fourth in the league and have a chance of promotion?
- Is it time to put an offer in for season ticket holders? Bite the bullet, reduce the costs in the hope of drumming up extra venue?
- Is Fenty wasting his time with this new stadium?
- Has he contacted suitable investors out of town?

Just wondering on all your thoughts and what would YOU do to get this club back to where they should be?

Why don't you ask him as he is the only person who can answer you.

- What local interest has he drummed up?
Quite a lot if you read the local press. 5000 people have signed some survey or other.  Three local consultations on the new ground were well attended. Local interest is probably at a peak even if this is not reflected in increased gates.

- Why are no successful local business men interested in being involved?
How do you want them to be involved? Aside from writing a blank cheque.

- Why are our attendances low, even though we sit fourth in the league and have a chance of promotion?
It's something to do with standard of football served up at home? And a recent history of shattered hopes and disappointment. And low compared to what? What would you consider a healthy attendance in the fifth division?

A run at the Conference title will be the best way to get bums on seats, increase revenue.

- Is Fenty wasting his time with this new stadium?
Do you mean Peaks Parkway or a new stadium full stop?

- Has he contacted suitable investors out of town?
Refer you to Big Chris's answer - not exactly something he would be publicising

I've been critical of JF in the past, but to be fair he can't do any more than he is doing right now. Let's all get behind the club, get us back into the football league and take it from there.

Exactly, I don't really see what the OP is hoping to achieve by posting this at this moment in time when all is going so well on the pitch.

Much as I am not a fan of Mr Fenty, the only thing that will re-generate interest in the club and ultimately get us in a new stadium is success on the pitch. Four wins on the bounce (however they were achieved) is four steps in the right direction - let's get behind the team for now and see where the next three (hopefully only two) months take us.

Haven't we just renewed our sponsorship with Youngs?-A major achievement for a team in the fifth tier. There are lots of "local businessmen" involved with the club-advertisers, match sponsors, match ball sponsors.
We've surely done the attendance thing to death on here lately-I suggest you re-read the copious threads on the subject.


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