Quoted from barralad


Ok I'll bite! If The Trust were running the club they'd be running it without me. There would be an obvious need to recruit people with far more experience and business acumen than our current group of very well-meaning amateurs.
The share offer was made around the time of the relaunch of the Trust. At no time was it communicated that we should use the shares to "Go it alone" as far as I'm aware. We were in no position whatsover to run a professional football club-neither did we have sufficient shares to enable it to happen. We must have been over this a hundred times but the decision to make the shares over to J.F. was made by the membership in a vote. The fact that J.F. threatened to sell players may have influenced that decision but it was what it was. As far as I'm aware Mr Parker retains a significant shareholding in GTFC.

Ian, I assume that's your name, seen it used a few times.  Just to be clear, I wasn't questioning your competence or indeed that of any trust member.  Let's be honest, there's a tiny minority of well run clubs, it would be a very big ask to expect well meaning fans to run a club without experience and more importantly, without cash.  I see how my post could be deemed inflammatory, that wasn't the intention but I apologise irrespective.

Two clubs off the top of my head: AFC Wimbledon and Exeter City.

Can't believe there isn't the ability out there to match that.

Quoted from RichMariner
Turn the clock back and give Paul Hurst his strength and conditioning coach, or whatever else he was asking for in an effort to take this club forward. I refuse to believe that any of his demands were unreasonable.

He's been the only manager during the last 20 years that has brought any success to this town. You should've just backed him and not listened to the small number of whinging fans who didn't like him because he supposedly never praised us, or sounded dour, or was from Yorkshire, etc. wasn't Buckley

He got us promoted. He signed the best asset we've had since Ryan Bennett. He proved himself. He'd have proven himself again in League 2 had we just believed in him (which we had no problem doing in the National League, funnily enough, when patience was at a premium).


That's why a MINORITY didn't like him.


Today we got our team back - town fan leaving Wembley may 2016

My favourite all time quote from the megalomaniac, sorry JF.  'We don't want to devalue the product'.  So Mr Fenty, apart from devaluing the product to the point that it's worth less than the Pategonian zob, what have you done?  Without wishing to answer my own question, I feel it important to put forward a suggestion.  Perhaps, just perhaps you've allowed an over inflated ego, coupled with less planning than you would find embossed on a rizla paper, in 48 pt font, to completely ruin a once proud club.  Shame on you, you and you alone are responsible for the state of the club.  So you put less than 10% of your nett worth into the club, ONCE.  Well done, there are numerous fans who put double that percentage of their disposable income in every week.

You have zero credibility and no honour.  My money stays firmly in my pocket until I either die or you have no association with the once proud GTFC.

Whilst agreeing with everything you said, it's like talking to a brick wall. Mr Fenty's too stubborn and/or arrogant to accept that this mess is his fault. The constant dismissal of everything the supporters have put up with shows exactly the contempt with which we are treated. In Fenty world, as long as we are contributing, we really don't matter.
