Quoted from The Old Codger


I dread to think how many times that fans who truly love the club have to write posts like this.

Surely if JF is as big a fan as he says, he can look at the club and realise how underwhelming, no poor, the results of his tenure are. Using 'the Jolley revolution' for marketing is one thing but you've got to back it up. For all that went on in the summer, the visits have dried up and the same old 'make some noise for the boys', 'you can be the 12th man' is as exciting as it gets. Dare to be different Mr Fenty, no, even dare to be slightly progressive, we need some excitement in our lives!


People don't change really do they? Not really. You are who you are - I know I am and I guess everybody else is the same.

Fenty had the gumption to "save" the club all those years ago, and credit must go to him for that and I guess he was the right man at the right time; now he is the wrong man at the wrong time and we need a clean sweep of the off field set up to give us fresh impetus, well any impetus.

It must be difficult for him to let go of the reins as he must think he deserves a legacy for saving the club all those years ago, but that attitude (and his loans) are holding the club back.

To get back to my original point it is a thankless task some of us on here expecting the club (Fenty) to try anything different and better because a leopard never changes his spots. He made his money in a different world in a certain way and sadly has not been able to adapt and adopt a more collegiate approach for the benefit of the club. Till he goes we are stuck.

Yes. With the shred of dignity I have left. Before the next fans forum/shambles comes along.

Fenty OUT.

The voices singing his praises and supporting him are getting less and less probably just enough to fill a bunker or snooker room.

The fact Town sold 3k Season tickets was a miracle and ONLY MJ made that happen.Thevast majority of fan`s support the team and manager but not the regime.FENTY OUT

Aye.  

Eight months ago I was very adamant I wasn't renewing my season ticket, in fact I think the vast majority were of the same view point based on what I saw on here, Twitter etc. (appreciate that's not receptive of the whole fan base but there was enough people saying 'no' to suggest sales would be well down).  

As it happened Jolley turned it around and gave a huge feel good feeling to all the fans.  A genuine belief that not only was he going to change things on the pitch but he was getting the go-ahead to bring about change across the club overall.   In hindsight that was probably a combination of gullibility by the fans and a little bit of deviousness by the club to trickle that out there.  As it's happened nothing has changed really.  Yeah Jolley has been able to bring in the sports science approach that we should have had 7-8 years ago but away from the training ground we're still run like an old boys club.
