Oxford and Bristol Rovers have confirmed they voted against. That's 8 clubs out of 48 who have voted against. We can't give this one up until we find out which way the club has voted. If we've agreed to it then Fenty deserves all the stick he'll get. His one saving grace is that despite his terrible decision making he appears to have the club's best interests at heart. If he's voted for this he can no longer claim that this is the case.

No excuses, if Fenty and/or any other board member voted for this they should be asked to step down from their position. They clearly have no relationship or understanding of their supporters.

If it is JF, and I don't know for sure it was, then he has to go. His loans are benign and they cannot be repaid until the club can afford to do so. We CAN have a well run club without an annual payment from him so all we are losing is his experience, and his regular gaffs.

Let the chains off and move the club into trustworthy hands!

I normally dismay at some of the knee jerk, impulsive reactions on this board but in this case I couldn't agree more. If JF has voted for this then it's a slap in the face of every supporter and of the proud history of this club.

Look, you horrid little bootlicker, don't be under the impression that Fenty thinks any more of you than he does the rest of us nobodies. You can knock your infatuation with him on the head, it's becoming embarrassing.

The fans have the right to hear how the individuals representing the club have voted. We need to be told who voted, how they voted, and why.

A generally anonymous little jolly-up in the sunshine, I bet they thought fans across the country would let this one slide again and they'd be able to slope off back to their offices without being questioned. How wrong they were.

No need for name calling, I was just asking the question, I dont for one minute think this decision is the right one and If and it is an IF at this point the representatives of GTFC voted for this then yes I think an explanation of why they felt it was the best for the club but as we dont know who voted and how they voted I think its a bit early to start a mutiny.

Wouldn't it make more sense to explain to JF why he's wrong and try to change his mind? We have an active Trust with members on the board. To demand he steps down with no way of enforcing it and no alternative to replace him seems unhelpful. JF seems to be looking at the financial numbers. If there is a complete boycott of these ridiculous B-team games, which I hope there will be, then he will realise this isn't a good option. Having said that I've no idea how he, or the many other voters, could possibly think this was a good idea in the first place and it's totally embarrassing.

The ultimate irony would be to see two of the academy teams make it through to the final, played out in front of, ooooh, a thousand or so "fans". Biggest crock of sh1te I've heard in years. Anybody running a book yet on which way our JF voted?


No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.
