Quoted from Squarkus

Are you for real, Parker saved himself a few million, he became the majority shareholder because he wanted to, he was a new investor for our great club, when he moved on for his own reasons, nothing  to do with Fenty , Fenty was left with the baby and did not ask for anything from the trust or anyone for that matter, other people came up with a reasonable scenario that suited him to move the club forward, who would invest in something that someone else controls, and when you say match MP, He had already done that and more, MP is not at the club because of Fenty, he has said that himself publicly, so my mush there really isn't a record to put straight, to do what he did was just not in the best interest of the club, with his business skills why did he allow himself to have (A) more shares than anyone else and become the majority sharholder and(B) his advisors give him the only solution to get out of the situation he put himself in when things did not suit him, so please stop trawling crap there is no spin to have, what we need is football fortune fingers crossed, a new stadium and better results than today.


Parker left the board because as he stated certain promises weren't kept, which was reported at the time when he was interviewed, who failed to honour those promises? Why did it take article 9 a few months to become an issue and not soon as Parker increased his share holding.

After he left the club Parker then invested the amount both he and JF publically agreed to invest, which was £500k,  Parker did this by increasing his shares which had to be agreed by the board which included John. So it has everything to do with JF, and where is the proof JF matched the £500k before Parker had to engineer his way out of the corner he had been put in.

I suggest you go back and look at the time line, the biggest question out of all the shares fiasco is a simple one, why didn't JF just match Parkers shares increase? If what was promised to Parker was honoured do you think he would have left? Why did JF put a covenant on the trust not accepting any more shares from Parker?

What part of the JF circle are you?


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.

Please this is not a pop at you mate by any means but why ...

1 Are you pursing this?

2 What do you expect the outcome to be?

You're undoubtedly correct - but does that mean we should roll over and accept mediocrity without question?

It's a shame it appears we have not got a link to the interview MP gave to Radio Humberside because he gave it and it was aired prior to an evening game as I listened to it on the way into Grimsby on the A180 in fact and if my memory serves me correctly what he said seems to differ from what you have said.

I stand to be corrected if someone can resurrect it.

But we've been mediocre for most of our history, after all that time in non league, a squad of 4th tier players, a home average gate of around 4,500 (sometimes more sometimes less), limited income from the ground and no mega rich benefactor we where never going to come up and take the league by storm.

We all want better I fully agree but banging on about what did or didn't happen in history won't facilitate that.

Why so you can drag even more shite up let it go ffs. What good will going over the past do towards helping the club move forward?

It's what happens now that counts the past is history.

Are you deliberately being obtuse or are you just flipping thick?

I didn't start this thread, just have a look at who did.

I recall that but it seemed , at the time ,to allude to Board Members ,other than JF , who weren't prepared to match his investment. Everyone seems to forget that the Board had other members at the time who could have invested money into the club.
As a point of interest since I've been supporting GTFC ( mid 1960's ) I can't recall any Board Members or Chairmen who have been prepared to gift the club money or invest the kind of amounts that JF has. In fact I recall one grosser member who wanted his substantial loans paying back immediately after a fall out with his fellow board members even if meant the club being put in serious financial difficulties.
