Quoted from Marinerz93

I've got a car, the type you've always wanted and you can buy it at book price. However, since I failed to maintain it and bodged certain jobs I had to take loans out to put things right, that'll cost £3 million on top, still want to buy that car.


Depends how much you want the car, doesn't it? At present, nobody apparently wants the car enough to pay the asking price or, as far as we know, even to be willing to put in an offer for it.

Complaining that the current owner won't give it away for nothing seems a bit, well, odd, even if he hasn't looked after the car as well as you would like.

Just not many (or even any?) people around in our area with the ego, money and inclination required which makes this whole argument a moot one.

But there have been two people recently that wanted to help restore the car. Indeed they started to. BOTH have now abandoned the project.  Coincidence??  I think not !!


Why?

Trying to antagonise Fenty will not solve anything the club and fans need to stick together to many keyboard warriors on here think they know it all.

Harping on about shitt from the past ex directors,ex managers and ex players WILL NOT solve anything it is still early days yet

I sincerely hope this talks continue when we win ( whenever that may be). JF believes this sort of thing only rears its head when results are poor.
IMO it is just as relevant when we are picking up points

Still think we should seriously consider looking into fan ownership, to see what it entails and how much it'll cost to buy him out and then see the books to see if it's doable on a year to year basis etc

Good post.  Just to expand further, would anyone seriously want the Trust running the club?  Didn't MP offer up that opportunity but the wise heads 'gifted' Fenty the shares.  Are those shares included in fentys holding?

The only way we will ever get rid of him is to stop funding the club through merchandise and tickets.  The club is an utter shambles and has been throughout his tenure.


As a neutral observer stood in the room at the time all this happened you really cannot believe the extreme pressure the trust representatives at the time were put under.I didn`t agree with what they did but fully understood why they did it JF basically had them by the balls.
