"Mark Porter, chairman of the Port Vale Supporters Club has called owner Norman Smurthwaite a “disgrace” after his extraordinary decision to put the club into administration if an acceptable buyer is not found.

Port Vale owner Smurthwaite says the club will be put into administration if a takeover deal cannot be completed by May 5th."

Best part is, there is a local buyer lined up (They have already made offers) but they want him to sell all parts of the club, but it has been split into 2 companies and he wants to hold onto the infrastructure which includes a large swathe of land (Bycars) alongside it which could easily become a site to build hotel/houses and also the kiosks on match day. .

He's put in a fair bit £1.5 million and wants to get it back plus some ,the half of  the club that's worth anything  is a seperate entity which he has control over.
then acting like a spoilt brat as he's covered he will then virtually fold the club and legally he's fine wow.
How did they let him do that ,did no one know that was his intention?
There are so many dodgy people about that get into football , then its the fans left who pick up the pieces or have to start again.

I'm wishing for someone who will turn the club around and hopefully get this club to League 1 with a view to getting back to the Championship at some stage in the not too distant future rather than someone who has overseen more than 15 years of decline, taken us out of the Football League and last season nearly took us back to the wilderness.

Clubs change managers frequently to provide a new impetus. They sign players to reignite interest from the fans. Big and small companies change strategy and personnel to liven things up to explore new markets and keep the drive and determination going. They raise their profile, they look at things differently and they improve their product and services all the time - or at least they do if they want to remain in the game.

Anybody who has been to BP on a non match day will not see anything like this. They will see a jaded, old fashioned and dreary experience with no leadership and just an acceptance that things will always be the same.

What we are looking for is a vision. A new start, a fresh beginning and a different way of doing things. Sure that needs a bit of money, some investment but so much could be done with relatively little but of course we are stuck. Not going forwards nor backwards, just stuck in a rut.

Mr Fenty perhaps should have taken a collegiate approach to other people, and slowly over time built a solid future. Over time people like Mike Parker could perhaps have attracted other wealthy people to share in a vision for the future and slowly built the club, with different people contributing different skills and new money, but everything seems to get bogged down.

I suppose what I am saying is money isn't everything, but a different approach is what we need.

I want there to be more money of course. I think at our level though a lot could be done a little bit of investment and a major change in attitude.

I have been supporting Town for nearly 64 years and can not remember anybody putting any worthwhile money into the club apart from D. Ramsden and Fenty.

We know Ramsden wanted his back as soon as he got voted off the board,

We also know Fenty is taking his back in dribs and drabs, if you call £200,000 that,

So I do not expect anybody turning up with any amount of cash without wanting it back,

Unless some fan like me wins £70+ million on the lottery.







PS. I have not won £70+ million by the way.
