Then who has been running the club for the last 15 years? Oh yeah, ITV Digital. Look at our facilities, decrepit stadium, non-league training facilities, recent history.


Youre starting an age old argument there and you’re completely missing my point, which was to do with the summers preparations and the coming season. Meaning everyone was happy as a pig in excrement before Saturday, now we lost it’s back to having a dig at Fenty again. If we’d won on Saturday we’d not be discussing Fenty, if we’d signed Lee Angol, we’d not be talking about him either but it just seems to be the go to taboo subject when we either lose a game or don’t land a player who is supposed to be hot excrement. Now I’m no advocate of JF, but what’s the guy done wrong in the last few days ?

It's an age old argument but that doesn't make it irrelevant. GTFC was a club with a proud history of over achievements, now we struggle to attract moderate footballers who see us as a poor option or, worse still, a soft opportunity. Let's face facts, we are a club that seems to struggle to stand still let alone make progress. It's not about what's gone wrong in the past few days, it's about the culture of failure and negativity that has become the norm. At Christmas, I will have been going to Blundell Park for 50 years, I would really love to see the club progress under MJ but the club has to change and a good start would be to treat the fans with a bit of respect rather than the current 'shut up and go away' mentality.

I share your frustration but I’m not sure where the fans have been treated with disrespect in recent weeks.

You make a reasonable point but you cannot separate  Fentys tenure into the last few days.

We have had 16 or 17 years of absolute rubbish whilst he has been involved and sadly that is unlikely to change.

The minute we lose a game the emphasis is once again on the main man, because he pulls all the strings. That is not going to change unless something momentous happens. I think Fenty would only get any praise if we get to the Championship in "5 years." I wonder what the bookies odds are on that?
