Quoted from rancido


I'm not questioning JF's ability or any success ( ? ) during his tenure. What I am questioning is the constant jibing and ridicule of any poster who doesn't buy into the anti-Fenty attitude. We are all entitled to our opinions regardless of what they are. As a point of interest I think JF has done so many things wrong but I will also defend those who don't see things the same way.


Jibing and ridicule where? Some people have one opinion, some another. Isn't that what forums are about?

Well, now the feel-good factor has been diluted again lets put this to bed but how many times do we keep doing that?


Until the next time John think once, think twice and just keep quiet.

JF confronted the fans not the other way round, therefore does that make him the ham shanker?



Fair enough but I don't see how he would confront a fan unless he was goaded badly.

Quoted from HertsGTFC
Though I think that JF's balls up's have outweighed his triumphs with the appointment of MJ and the impact he has had both on and off the pitch maybe just maybe it's time to park the clamor for a new board and see what happens next season.

We called for fresh energy and have it now in a manager that knows his sh1t and is keen to pull everyone together so that we can achieve our objective - success on the pitch.

I'd like to see the gang of 4 move on as long as the club was left ins safe hands but unlike some it's not the main GTFC topic that occupies my mind at the moment. The MJ revolution has got me thinking though.

if the "Fenty Out" campaign leads to losing MJ  by him getting spooked due to all the off the pitch stuff I think that will be it for me.

Remember the manger says he needs everyone together. We might and rightly so IMHO criticize the board for not backing managers but maybe it's our turn now to give a manager what he needs?


Has any manager ever left a club because the fans are against the (non) chairman?

Quoted from The Old Codger


I don't hate him. Why does it have to be 'love' or 'hate'?

He's a GTFC fan, so am I. I respect the finance that he has put into the club but don't like the financial position it has put us in. I respect the fact that he has more right than anyone else to have his say but I don't like how he goes about it. I also respect the fact that many people have a different opinion about him than I do.


It might not be hate from you but it is definitely hatred from some posters. I have only spoken with John twice, once when I had a rare visit for fish and chips before the game and he came to talk to our table and once when ,I spoke at a planning meeting, for a development he was for and the barstard won. However compared with dreadful men such as Furneaux and Huxford, who mates have worked for and you wouldn't believe their stories, I find him a reasonable man.

Not sure TBH, but I’m sure that some have left clubs when they felt that whatever they tried they can’t pull key stake holders together.

Maybe not quoting him verbatim but the manager has asked for everyone to pull together, looking at the great start he has had why would we not do this?

I'd argue, if there is a risk it's in the long term interest of the club. It's a big IF though. MJ made that appeal but it's early days in his relationship with Fenty. To my mind the bigger risk is when MJ has weighed things up properly he's more likely to urine off with him in charge.

I notice that he's turned down an interview with Radio Humberside.

Now there was a chance to answer some questions once and for all in a two-way dialogue but, as we know, Fenty only does one-way dialogue.

Funny how he'll say what he wants to say when he's in control but can't stretch to the trouble of answering a few probing questions from local journalists so that more fans can't hear what he's thinking.

He's a control freak.

And another thing - if he wants his £2m 'benign' loans back then I'm classing all the money I've put into the club since 2001 as a benign loan and now I want it back.
