Quoted from sonik


I don't need to fuel the fire more than what's already put on here by people that are sometimes guessing what's gone on. I've stated on here before that we don't always agree and have healthy debate on all things connected with GTFC. What I do know is that John works tirelessly for this football club of ours and all decisions are genuinely made for the good of the club. At mainly his expense!

I can't write war and piece on here like some do but if you ever get the chance to socialise with me over a pint you may see things a little differently.

All Town aren't we!


And all that hard works goes up in smoke because he can't take any form of criticism or listen to different opinions. Why does he hit the self destruct button every time the clubs seems to building something. It's like he revels in being a martyr.


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.

The bit in bold interests me. I don't for a second doubt that your brother believes every decision he makes is for the good of the club. However, what is galling is that he doesn't ever seem to realise or accept when he's made a mistake. Nor can he understand the opinions of others and he certainly doesn't value them.

Whatever walk of life you're in, good leadership comes from people who are willing to accept responsibility and blame when they need to and who are able to listen to the advice/opinions of others but still have the confidence to come to a decision on their own if necessary. A good leader knows that sometimes they're not an expert in a particular field and should hire/listen to someone with more expertise (*cough*why the intercourse do we STILL not have someone employed for PR *cough*). Fenty's intentions are probably good but the delivery and often the decision making is well off and it's the main reason there is such a chasm between club and fanbase. Until he realises this and starts to address it, nothing will change.

Quoted from The Old Codger


There is a massive lack of trust between the boardroom and the terraces and Kristine is one of the people who were bridging that gap. We also had the Unity day on Saturday which appeared to go well and now, once more, it's been blown out of the water again. Why?


I would hope that Christine her self would give the answers to that, you understand Codger that something has happened and we are not in the know at this stage, I am sure it will surface in the coming days, but pointing the finger at this early stage is wrong.

WTF is going on again, has the club not learnt from the fallout after the fans forum. I last met 'our' SLO at Cheltenham and she stayed overnight in a B&B in order to watch the match - she has done more for the club than most by a country mile!

The Matt Dean saga was ridiculous but this is something altogether unacceptable.

I was a contentious objector - not now.

Yet again John Fenty you have ostracised yourself, and therefore the club, from the most important thing at Grimsby Town - the Fans!

Have you no morals or decency?

Not at all. He'll defend the club to the hilt as you probably realise. Lets see the whole picture before firing the gun so to speak. The statements coming out of the club have commended Kristine for her efforts. Why the need for her to resign over this I don't know. Surely it would be better for Aide and Kristine to work together on this?

'whole picture' - now completely lost with the again ludicrous way it has been announced with no communication to 'our' SLO. The gun has been fired - by the club!

well this one might not cost him financially but its costing him any shred of trust or credibility that any had left in him and damaging fan club relations just a few days after a Unity Day !! ....if HE didnt appreciate Kristine's Bragate comments then, as she was an appointed member of staff...(and no amount of Tippex can cover over the FACT she was the clubs appointed SLO) ...did he not pull her to one side and speak with her about it ?

Instead of rewriting history, ( she was apparently only the Trust SLO) ... inventing stories ( it was made clear at the fans forum ?!?!? ) in order to put his own SLO in place who will act for the club ...and now the latest release states that the SLO role focus will be BP only and not our away games !!

I'm sick and tired of seeing this statement being trotted out time and time again..

I don't want him to work tirelessly, I want him to work skilfully..

If he hasn't got the skills, get someone else in who is skilful enough to do it,,

Kristine has been a huge asset and a breath of fresh air at this stale club.. and now he's lost her..

I have to question the skill sets being used to attract new investment and secure a new stadium..

There's been a catalogue of errors over a multitude of relatively minor issues over years and years..

How can we trust anyone at the club to have the ability to execute the major issues facing us?

I'm dumbfounded and really fearful for our club's future..



Kristine, if you read this, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your efforts..

You were greatly appreciated..

Therein lies the problem. If you can't see why she is so p1ssed off that she felt her only course of action was to resign, then there is no hope.

Come on Sonic, you are the most sensible of the band of brothers.  Please don’t let that slip. Lip service from the club that has just totally treated Kristine appallingly means fcuk all.
Even the little bit at the end saying that she can return as the post is still open ‘for now’.  Oh quick Kristine or we won’t let you back in. I would love to hear  her side fully as we all would.
Someone has royally screwed up what coukd have been a success for once.

I know who my money’s on


I read an article last night that apparently, the adult male has sex on average 2-3 times a week.
However Eskimo's only have sex 2 or 3 times a year.
This amazed and enlightened me.
I had no idea I was an Eskimo
