........He could do a lot worse than this guy.

Graham Potter.

Has he been mentioned anywhere already? Might be out of our reach, but worth an ask surely. Move heaven and earth to get him here. Got the required Boston connection too!

Potter is doing a fantastic job, agree he will be out of our reach. He'll get an opportunity at a forward thinking stable club with potential, and that isn't us.

John Fenty cannot win the fans back, that ship has sailed based on 14 years of acute pain. It's best for all of us if he exits as soon as possible.

John Fenty CAN win the fans back but I totally agree it`s very unlikely to happen unless he delivers a new ground and Championship football in a very short space of time.

Dont think that will work because neither of those are going to happen.

What the CLUB needs to consider is how to be more inclusive. The only way i can see that happening is for Fenty to appoint a genuine CEO with power and clout to actually engage, work with the fans and change the club/fan relationship.

I honestly dont see Fenty doing so himself because even if he started to say the right things, very few would buy in to it because of a distinct lack of trust regarding his value of the supporters.

Just my opinion as always and others may disagree

Likewise I don`t see it happening either and due to the money in the game I can`t really see Grimsby getting anywhere near the Championship for a long time that`s nowt against Fenty by the way just we have to be realistic.However I hope against all hope we get one or both because that`s football.

I grew up watching town compete in the championship for the most part. Great days, although it’s easy to remember through rose tinted glasses, it was mostly a struggle to stay in the division. But we played some great stuff, we had no right to see Town play football of that standard.

However, times have changed. Rumours are Bogle who is a fringe player at that level is on 15k a week, £15m transfers etc. I don’t think we can realistically hope to see those days again, but Burton managed it so you never know.

But you need to have a proper infrastructure, we certainly haven’t. Poor youth facilities, poor scouting network, we don’t give youth a chance, no real ethos. We are not set up to succeed, we are set up to firefight constantly.

We need change at the top.

He’s openly stated he wants out, all efforts from him should be to concentrate on a safe exit strategy which doesn’t harm the club.

A new ground in the wrong place could actually be the final nail in his legacy.

He won't win the fans back, he could, but he won't.

Potter won't come, any suggestion he will is crazy.

Top and bottom is.......we need a new stadium that would strengthen our financial future and write off Mr Fenty's loan.

Then hopefully we can more than compete financially with our rivals and enjoy some good times again with or without JF.

This obviously assumes we hang on to our league status.
