What a different world it would be if,

Parker had stayed and Fenty had gone.

As this thread is aimed for the attention of Mr Fenty, I would like to ask a question.

Is there any aspect of the club, on the pitch or off the pitch, that you feel has improved while you have been in charge?

Quoted from Maringer


I don't deny Parker spent/lost a good amount of money. Just pointing out that he didn't want to go the whole hog and take charge. Again, this is fair enough.

Thus far, Fenty is the one who put his money where his mouth is (albeit mostly as 'benign loans'), so that's the current ownership situation and that's where we stand for the foreseeable future.


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.

The Benign loans are for Fenty to burden not the club, it was his mistakes and cheap options that put the club neck deep in excrement, why would any one want to pay him back that sort of money for his cockups?


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

Can't believe we have got to page 10 and still not been able to goad a response from Getyourfactsright.

C'mon John, have you forgotten your Fishy password?

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.


He did indeed threaten to sell Hearn and also withhold payments matching Parker. Also isn't it very strange that Fenty also put a block on the trust accepting any more shares from Parker.

Nobody is the answer. He presumably wants his money back which can only happen if and when the new stadium is built? If that suffers a setback he has a big decision to make.

Another thing if it was not Fenty in charge I bet we would have been in our new stadium years ago,

He rubs other councillors up the wrong way so they get their own back by stalling his plans at every opportunity.

Quoted from moosey_club


Until we get to a potential suitable takeover scenario then guessing, accusing and supposing what JF will do is pointless and moral sapping.  

That leaves any anti JF movement with a couple of realistic options;

Approach JF through the trust, or directly, to find out what sort of package he would require to pass over his control in the club......then either.....

Set up an independent consortium, seek your own outside investment, raise the capital to initially buy and then run the club to a financial footing at least equal to what we have now....
Or
work with JF to promote the club to potential investor markets aiding JF either secure greater funding to improve our financial picture or to completely sell out.




This section of Moosey's post is the only blueprint fans have got to instigate change. It's written in the club's accounts that the directors have a duty to attract inward investment to improve the club's financial position.

And as Barra said of the Trust "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."

Pretty much everything else on this thread is a sounding board of moans or opinions of what has gone on in the past or frets about our current position.

The burning question is, has anyone got the greater desire to do something about it?
