As someone who has supported the club over 40 years and been posting on here 8 years, I have never known such a poisonous atmosphere.  The club aren't perfect but this has been driven by fans too.  Sad times.

I completely disagree, the poisonous undertone has always been there, with our demise from 2nd tier to non league. However, in non league a bond developed with the players (not board) which hid the ineptitude of our board.  The poison was always there and it reared its headed every time there was a PR gaff. Now with the bond well and truly broken, the board are rightly getting the excrement they deserve.  

This is board driven not fan driven.

I am starting to wish for the day that John Fenty asks for his money back and puts the club into administration.  No doubt the wealthy backer we need who John Fenty won't allow near the club will come along and lead us to the promised land.  I hear Lincoln are doing very nicely, hired great managers and scoring loads of goals at the top of the league.... or maybe the Club will disappear into oblivion.

You hope that the major shareholder tries to destroy the club?

London Mariner. John Fenty has stated numerous times in many different types of media form that he would never recall his loans if it meant placing Grimsby Town FC in administration or suffering financial difficulties. That is a form of contractual agreement with it having been said to the general public.

Wrong Pete, his loans are held over the club, which means he would get whatever the ground is worth and all the other assets, so he will still get some back just not all.

Only because it might take a situation like that for people to realise the current situation is a long way from the disasters some clubs have experienced
