Heard this last night via text from a reliable source. Heard the sale is also dependent on the ground on the old flats site and the councils guaranteed involvement as part of a takeover partnership. I was told official news of this is imminent.

Quoted from Meza


I actually think it's happening personally.  I think the abandoned Peakes Parkway and councillors insisting the stadium would be best in Freeman St, may be forcing JFs hand.  So many different parties involved in making it a reality I. E. The Freemans etc.   Others mentioned Huxford.  Like Hagrid said too much information tells me it ain't bull.  Having said that a lot of us won't believe it until the first brick is laid.  I do find it strange RH aren't talking about it.... Maybe they've been told not to say anything.


Matt Dean did ask Jolley in his press conference yesterday about the takeover rumours. Jolley denied having heard anything, but he's probably the wrong person to ask. Obviously asking the chairman-in-all-but-name would make more sense, but I don't think Fenty makes himself available to Humberside very often.

Something's rumbling along, heard similar whispers and while it's from no one authoritative it's slowly gathering pace. The site mentioned earlier isn't overly trustworthy and I'd suggest that some of those things in that list are not going to happen but something seems to be happening. Even if it's simply discussions it's a positive sign for me.

A current director told a friend of mine that a sale is imminent and will see JF & current board members leaving the club.


Is John Fenty actually still alive? I've never known him keep his gob shut for so long

Is this a legitimate trusted source though? I’m sure I’d seen elsewhere it was a newly registered domain name and no known journalists are linked to it? Sounds like someone in their bedroom with too much time on their hands 😳


From what I can gather, it's an attempt at going legitimate (or making advertising money) from what was previously the Spotted: Grimsby Facebook page.

A bit unfair to ask MJ  at this stage even if he did know its not up to him to go public first.

We will see.

All seems to back up what everyone else has been hearing.

A lot of those claims are very spoof-like, I'll admit. Only hope some genuine bid is behind the flurry of 'reports'.

And long may it continue. IMO it’s the right thing to do.

Let’s face it, IF (and it’s still a bloody big if) there is something happening, the club could be silent for two reasons.
One being that any discussions at the moment are confidential. Or two, having had their fingers burnt (yet again) by premature announcements they are waiting for something concrete to be able to announce.

So well done to JF and the board.  Keep up the silence please.

About as much use as a Scunthorpe season ticket.
