Quoted from Meza
What about setting up a crowd funder to buy out JF.... Might take a few years mind.


What would be the target amount?
£1m, £2m, £3m???


Would he sell to a fans group? I doubt it tbh as he has always said he wants any buyer to be able to demonstrate they can take the club forward. Sounds a bit of an excuse not to sell to me

Surely the only way to force the issue is to stop attending the games?

I know it would be hard to stomach, but nothing else will work.

If he (Fenty) wishes to use his own money as loans to make up the shortfall in the vain hope he will recoup it one day, then good luck to him.

It is the fans who are keeping this club alive; we actually have enormous power if we could harness it.

The only downside to this plan is that he has already got the season ticket money, but even so, a mass boycott would perhaps be the tipping point.

If we carry on like this attendances will go down anyway, but then Fenty will change the manager and start all over again. Better to boycott BP till he responds.

75% of the fans that are attending at the moment are STH so it will have very little effect I am afraid,

BUT

If we  have no upturn in the new year or even worse relegation,

Then I can see loads of STH not renewing the only reason a lot did renew this season was Jolley got all our hopes up towards the end of last season.

Don't be too upset, it's not just you I don't think he would sell to me either, or to any of us for that matter

Unfortunately I agree with those who say the only way of forcing Fenty out is by voting with feet.

The club is not for sale, it's another line by Fenty that some people continue to buy - hook, line and sinker.

I believe technically it is for sale to try to placate us as much as anything but of course I think he realises no one is going to buy it.

We could have a raffle-200K @ £10 a go and the winner[loser] would be the owner of gtfc. He would naturally be guarantor at the bank-perhaps lending the club benign loans [with no interest charges ] in our hour of need. Who wants my £20 -I'll have 2 please.

Dear John.  

I'll give you a fiver and a mars bar to clear off, which is about the right sort of value for the club after you've destroyed it.

Thanks.

What a stupid thread, a load of bored retirees thinking they can club together to buy out JF. Not only is it never going to happen, nor should it. No one one here has any idea how to run the club. I mean I'm not sure that JF does either, but at least there's only one of him.


Quoted from John Fenty, April 2013
I deconstructed the flag to the point where it was safe and couldn’t be considered a danger
