Is it surprising he can’t/won’t sell?? He’s impossible to deal with. Knows everything. Everyone else is wrong.


*custodians view

Their opinions aren’t relevant. Fans..pah..who needs them?? Without me there’d be no football club. You should be greatful. And tell me every day.

Investors....clowns. Not local, don’t have my knowledge or wherewithal. If they’re serious then join the board, put your money in but me and the rest of the board I’ve assembled will have the say. I mean...what more do they want??

Ex managers I’ve disagreed with, fallen out with, players I’ve got rid of to save the club money with my long term vision, local media employees who I’ve let get the blame for things they didn’t do, or voiced an opinion I don’t like so ambushed them - they’ll all say I’m fair to deal with. My reputation speaks for itself.

Fans I’ve spoken too after they’ve slated me, then after a chat agree I’m right and now bend over backwards to say how good I am, fans I’ve spoken too on the phone, radio stations I’ve phoned from lay by’s, fans teams who I’ve spoken too after they tried raising money to help good causes when they should have been supporting us at BP against Leicester U21’s in a fantastic competition...they all agree I’m brilliant.

The 4500 crowds at start of return to FL whom are now down to 3500 - we’ll those 1000 aren’t relevant. Deadheads. Clown shoes. We don’t want you anyway. All you do is criticise - and I’m beyond that. Peasants.

You’ll see. Watch and learn...

Quoted from Zmariner

There is nobody looking to buy a league 2 football club. This is just the reality of it. Not great, could be better, could be worse. JF takes all the crap and continues to support, with this much abuse many would bail out not keep plugging away, it is a thankless task for sure utm


There are plenty of prospective buyers who wouldn't want terms & conditions like JF suggested last night. If you were buying a business, would you want the incumbent owner sat on the board with you together with Marley, Day & Chapman demanding you do x y and z before they let you open the sweetie jar?

Look at the record of this football club with John Fenty at the helm and work out why loyal fans are unhappy. I've been a fan since 1968 and taking my boys since 2004, hoping one day that they see GTFC return to a higher level, playing the sort of football I've been lucky enough to see and putting some pride back in the area. Instead, we've got a bloke who can't make up his mind whether he wants to be a councillor or a football club owner, still calling all the shots whilst the club rots from within, still using the same tired methods to market itself.

Yes, I'll still be one of the sad bods who buys a season ticket next year but, as long as Fenty is at the helm, it will be in hope not expectation.

Do you mean Scunthorpe United Football Club?  If you do, then no we have not.  We tend to try and live in the present and look forwards at The Iron.

We leave living in the dim and never to be repeated past to other inferior (for fifteen years, no less) philosophies.  


At least we been there and done it, your lot NEVER will, you'll always be a tinpot team.

Quoted from dapperz fun pub


he’s a girl private whatever he is 👍 a really sad one


And you appear to be a foul-mouthed barely-literate missing link throwback type character.  But who am I to judge Mr. Cry-Baby?  


No you are not a Judge, you're a pretend Wizard Stevie, and he's got you bang to rights.



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.

Must have come as a shock to Scunny on Saturday, to see a crowd of that size seeing as they're used to, say 3000 on a good day....they may be above us in the league but we will always be a better supported club...

You think people say "those Grimsby lot are some non-tinpot side, they were in the first division 70 years ago don't you know?"     

Q - If you finish below a "tinpot team" for 15 consecutive years, what adjective accurately describes you?    

"He's got you bang to rights" says Mr. Funny Pictures.  Hmm.  I suppose with the level of intellect offered by this Dapperz fellow, you might be right.  Swear, call people names, throw in the old "inbred" classic jibe, and ask "admin" to ban someone who does not post things he likes.  Yep, he is some boy alright.  Bang to rights indeed.

Oh dear - 12 out of the previous 15 years Scunthorpe have a larger average home attendance than Grimsby.

Just read the interview.

To summarise - Inertia Rules OK.


"There are places I'll remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone, and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends, I still can recall
Some are dead, and some are living
In my life, I've loved them all."

Serious question...... with all the investment and all the chairman’s “PR” and in some cases good recruitment do you feel like your club has under achieved ?

Yes - Should probably be a middling 3rd tier side.  Losing to Rotherham in the PO's a few years was a disaster on that score - the best 7 players all left to go play in the 2nd tier.  That was mismanagement, and in effect a massive gamble which failed.  Was never going to bounce back from that quickly.

The crap someone has spouted, and then somehow become gospel, about us spending gazillions of pounds is nonsense though.  We had a calculated gamble prior to the Rotherham PO loss season, yes - but we haven't suddenly suddenly become a mini-Chelsea, where Swann is some Abramovic type figure.  

The biggest error was releasing Lee Turnbull & his scouting network.  Sharp, Keogh, Hayes, Hooper (from Southend ressies!) - and more, bought for peanuts.
