rather depressing isn't it?

council: we don't want the ground at P.P. We'd like it at Freemo please

JF: i don't want the ground at Freemo. We'd like it at P.P. please

and repeat ad infinitum.........

There seems like a great opportunity to get the ground built at Freemo. Which seems like a fantastic chance to clean up that area of town that desperately needs it and at the same time give GTFC the ground that we have needed for years...

Why are the Town board not actively seeking this.. ???

I sometimes think he can't win. He said that the Freemo development wasn't feasible in terms of an enabling development because there just isn't the space to provide it - as the council are so keen for it to go there he is waiting for them to come up with ideas of how it can be financed. That seems fair enough to me. He also said that there was interest in buying the club 3 months ago but they didn't have proof of funds to move the club forward...either he is lying or that is also a fair enough response.

There are councils & football clubs working together all over the country and still we have this apparent stand-off between NELC and John Fenty.

Michael Jolley, Anthony Limbrick are working their butts off to re-connect the football club with the fans and along comes JF with all the comedy timing in the world and blows it out of the water with an interview that basically says we're going nowhere fast. As for proof of funds, the last three sets of accounts shows the levels of directors loans being reduced which, whilst good in that it's reducing the indebtedness to JF, is also doubtless impacting on the playing budget. Is 'proof of funds' code for 'they won't pay my loans off'?

With regards to Estadio Del Freemo, if the Council are building the stadium/providing the land, why does it need an 'enabling development'?

He hasn't got the funds to move the club on either. Whats the difference?

I would rather have a fresh start with people who are more adept than John Fenty at running a customer based business and are able to offer a more collegiate approach in getting new investment.

With things looking up a bit on the field, the last thing we needed was an update from him.

That's the bit that gets me.

Someone could move the club forward without investing millions. The current board don't invest anything, so a new board without huge funds would be an equivalent to them in that regard. Only they might have a better idea of how to actively move the club forward.
