I agree that advertising and availability are two different things.The post I replied to was by Arryarry and he specifically mentioned advertising both nationally and internationally which is word specific.


No worries mate. My beef is that the club have got their priorities totally wrong. Without additional investment nothing is ever going to happen re progress off the pitch and the club are doing absolutely nothing proactively about it. It should be priority number one. Everything else discussed around the future of GTFC is just hot air otherwise. Looking at the video again, the only positive message for the club by JF was based around MJ, which is very short termist at best and that is a massive concern for me. When it comes to setting out a future plan for the club JF just looked like a man wallowing around in dead ends because the cash isn't there in my opinion..

Proves beyond any doubt that other people are interested in taking the club on.

Be interesting to hear from the other party on what the stumbling block was. I would be amazed if it wasn’t the asking price.

The ground included in the regeneration of Freeman Street would be something marvellous that everyone could get behind. Very sad their appears to be little appetite for it from the board.


I've just posted this, but if someone buys 51% of the shares, they get control of the club, That is the asking price, 51% of shares at the share price. You'd then owe the directors there loans and then you'd be debt free...!

So someone who takes an opposite view to yours about an individual is a " sad git " . The word " bigot " springs to mind.


No the reason I said sad git was because he only posts to defend Fenty which  is  0.11 a day.  over a few years,

You on the other hand  do defend him as well but you do post about other topics apart from Fenty related ones.

I respect your right to have a different view to most on here so I am not a bigot  am I  ?

The guy is a prize idiot. He doesn't learn. He's done this sort of thing before. All he needed to do was make a brief statement saying there had been interest but nothing came of it because the interested party couldn't demonstrate they had the resources. End.

Regarding 'enabling development' why does he think retail and housing will do the trick if there isn't huge demand for retail and housing? Self-defeating argument there John.

I find it a bit crass that the regime with the worst track record in the club’s history feels it has the moral objectivity to vet the next one.

Would whoever red-crossed this like to say why? What do you disagree with?

I agree and I am as frustrated as you over the direction the club is going. We need new blood on the Board with a forward thinking approach to match our new forward thinking manager and coaching staff. I just don't see how the Board can achieve this. I understand JF wants completely out but is not prepared to write off his " benign" debt or give his shares away and in a way I sort of agree with him. It's easy for some posters to say he should but I wonder how many would do the same in his position. It's very easy to offer advice when you are either not involved or have never been in that situation. All I want is for GTFC to flourish and over 50 years I've seen Chairmen/Boardmembers come and go but all I care about is the clubs' future.

And most of us feel exactly the same way.

It has become the norm for our expectations to be knocked down as soon as we get them built up. As every year passes, the board find new ways of alienating the fans.

Which is completley unrealistic.

That is the maximum asking price for someone who doesn’t want to sell.
