Quoted from realist
As the club is not making a loss, his exit strategy is easy:

1  Return shares to trust that he shouldn't have got in the first place
2  write off benign loans
3  Resign from the board taking whats his name with him.
4 New major shareholder runs club and invites Parker etc to join board
5 Dembele could be sold to give a financial reserve.
6 Fenty, Sonik, and Sqarkus are never seen or heard of again
7 we all get back to enjoying the football


You will enjoy the football if you leave your key board.

Look before we launch into more posts on this topic can we just put it hold? Everyone has their say, nothing can possibly be said that hasn't been said hundreds of times before. Nobody is going to budge an inch. I won't lock the thread but I will if people keep posting on the subject. The  good thing about football is every game is different.


I'm with Bigdog on this - 4 games unbeaten doesn't exonerate years of poor judgement and bad decisions. I've supported GTFC since the days of Paddy Hamilton and several other chairman without giving a second thought to their decisions. Only in the last 15 years have I taken any notice of how embarrassing our leadership is - I support whoever wears the shirt, come what may, good, bad or indifferent. If no-one is allowed to say what they think, then this stops being an independent fans' forum. I'm independent - I want the basic right of freedom of speech - I want my football team to win every week - I don't want to see our local sports reporter hung out to dry - I don't want to see our award-nominated SLO forced out of her position and, I don't want to post on a forum that's censored.

I wasn't going to comment on this thread but the highlighted part doesn't make sense. If you can't comment on the thread topic, you may as well lock it, or delete it.

Rob, this sits badly alongside the Squarkus let-off. There's either pressure on you or you're just getting narky in your old age and want to stick your head in the sand re the Fishy troll "GYFR".

Poor stuff, think I'll share the cab ride with BigDog,

Look the whole thread that this spawned from is pointless, that's all I meant. The whole thing was people just having a dig at one another and it just lost its way. No topic is banned but this thread deserved to die a death days ago. If you look at the message I replied to it was a continuation of factions having a go at one another. The site is becoming marginalised at the moment between extreme views, with many fans being left in the middle somewhere.

Maybe they should pipe up say something then. Maybe it'd help bridge the gap or help find a way forward.

Factions? Rob, you've run this site long enough to know that the Sick of Fents outnumber the sycophants. God knows where this club would be if it had been run properly.

QED. The very divisive language you use is belittling people as "sycophants" who support the status quo, which is not an unreasonable position in any walk of life! I'm far from certain that the vast majority of the 5,000 or so GTFC regulars and up to 10,000 occasional supporters have a burning desire for regime change at any cost right this minute. If you spend your life looking at "social media" you tend to read very extreme views, not just in football but on any subject. From the games I go to, what I overhear from those sat close to me when I do, and the people I know personally, I don't detect much appetite at all for change. But they don't necessarily all announce it to the world.

The Fishy should be for all Town fans. There has never been any other intent on my part.

It certainly feels that way
