Quoted from Cloudy
I am led to believe that if someone offered JF £1m in cash for his shares and asked him to write off his loans he would do so provided the purchaser could demonstrate he had the money, and will, to move the club forward.


Well if that is true, it would be very benevolent of him and I would applaud the gesture..

He did say that he had written off the loans in his head, and at the end of the day, whatever you think of him, i believe he genuinely has the best interests of the club at heart. I'm sure he would jump at the chance to pass the mantle of the club onto some other body. If that body was a consortium of fans, i think that would be acceptable. The stumbling block is finding the fans with the wherewithal and will to put this in motion.

I think he would Cloudy. i don't think he is a bad bloke or else he wouldn't have saved the club in the first place but I'm sure he wouldn't do anything of the sort while all these loud mouthed bigots are calling fuk out of him. Would anybody ?

Well I hope he had a few quid on L'es Fremantle trained by Mr Chapman - it's just won at 100-1!

It's probably more about the lack of leadership for the idea than the lack of money. The obvious body to organise and lead it is the Trust but the Trust board don't want to do it/don't think they can do it and no one else with a different view is willing to stand for election.

I suspect that Fenty being convinced that any new person or consortium could run the club properly would be for them to run it his way. Letting some other body buy him out and for him to hand over the reigns and do things differently would be horrific for him, especially if they were successful
