Its a faux Trust really isn't it? In my eyes at least a trust should be challenging, questioning and the voice of the long suffering fans.

Fenty must be laughing his socks off at just how ineffectual the Trust are in holding him to account.


We issued a survey. The members (and others) replied to that survey and told us what they wanted to happen. Armed with that information we went to the club with the help of S.D.  with a view to implementing the results of the survey. It has taken far longer than it should but precisely what else would you have wanted us to do. It's not that long ago that we were (rightly in some respects) getting pilloried for not acting on the survey.  I perhaps should have known that with the current toxic atmosphere answering to the best of my ability what was a reasonable question from Pizzzza was risky.


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

My post was more of a general one - I wasn't referring to any survey you may have done.

Volunteers always have my admiration, but in view of the long term stagnation, indeed decline in all aspects of the club under Fenty's tenure I just cannot understand how a fans voice can go so easy on him. There should be orchestrated moves to get him out, not giving him the cloak of respectability for his appalling record.

Surely things must come to a head soon? How many more years of Fenty failings are we supposed to endure? It is just ridiculous.

To be fair to the volunteers there are still plenty of fans who seem to be very supportive of Fenty, people shaking his hand towards the end of last season, patting him in his bat thanking him for our survival.
I must stress that I am not in anyway supportive of his reign but the issue with a fans group is that they have to represent ALL the fans and I wouldn’t wish that task on anyone

I don't think it would be reasonable to expect the Trust to do any more vis-a-vis the questionnaire. Patting him in his bat is a new one on me however.

Yes that is a fair point. I often have various spats with fans who still support him despite everything and I am at a loss as to understand why.Perhaps it is a reluctance to change your stance after backing him in the early years. We see this a lot with managers don't we - people tend to have a settled view on a manager from the off.

All the available evidence suggests Fenty has been a disaster. I will always give him credit for putting his hand in his pocket when we needed it all those years ago, but there has to be more than that surely, for him to garner any support? Many of us die-hards are getting to the end of our collective tethers to make a go of it even in League 2.

No disrespect to the Trust but by the time this announcement is made we will almost be due another survey.

So the members of the trust are the last to find out.? Not really a supporters based trust is it. A small clique doing what they want
