Looks like it's you and I Dan against the dreamers. Pretty obvious you went to the same University of Common Sense as me.


Anyone who buys a lower league football club has to be barking mad so that rules you two out . 👋👋👋👋👋👋👋👋👋

Quoted from The Old Codger


Ska is absolutely right - without a price, it's all conjecture.

However, to answer the point, there are many, many sound business people that are fans of GTFC with far more business acumen than selling fish - the same as there are at many fans' run clubs and many of them are members of the Mariners Trust.

Add to that, they would work with collective responsibility and in bold and underlined - THEY WOULD BE TRULY ANSWERABLE TO THE BOARD


If they were much better business men, then they'd have more money than JF. Maybe as a collective, the sum of the parts adds up to more, but there's nobody stepping forward to take that role and not even any rumours that somebody else local is interested.

Not sure why several people are bringing up the trust, they don't want to do it and have said so many times. You can't force them to do something that they don't want to and don't think they're capable of doing.

Quoted from Cloudy


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


Thats were the trust comes into it i would think.

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.


Im 44 and definitely not retired yet lol.

No-one is interested in bailing out the loan you mean. No businessman worth their salt is going to pay JF back the £2 million bar bill that's been run up.

In addition, as I'm sure you know, there are many businessmen with lots of money that they've inherited or married into (Peter Swann being a good example) so wealth alone doesn't make JF a good businessman. I would prefer to judge Mr Fenty's business credentials by his record at GTFC over 16 years myself. I've no doubt he did very well for himself at Five Star Fish but Grimsby Town FC has never looked as bad an investment as it does now.

So what was Mike Parker, scotch mist, don't make me laugh, no one will pay over the odds for anything especially when it's in the millions, if you believe that I've got some unicorn excrement for sale, £100 per pound, (small print, it's basically my excrement with multi coloured glitter on it, a bit like Fenty's benign loan) still want it?


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

Jesus’ disciple Peter, picked up a fish to get the tribute money from it, Jesus left his thumb print on the fish, bless'ed is the Haddock.

So perhaps you could explain the success of other 'supporters group' run clubs such as Exeter, Wycombe and Newport who are all harnessing the collective will of their fans?


Were they £4million in debt to  1  person ?

Lets look at things this way,

Fenty put £2 million into the club to pay off previous directors and a tax bill,

If he was good at his job he would have got more than double that back in 17 years,

Sadly he has been rubbish at his job so he should lose that money he put in.

I should also like to add that he has had free admission to every game in the last 17 years,

That is home and away plus free travel and board for the overnight stays,

Add up all that up and take it away from his BENIGNE LOANS and it would make a big hole in it.
