This news is utterly horrifying. Look at the track record of the board.

I feel we are at a pivotal moment for the club given Mr Fenty’s programme notes today. I will admit I have been anti-Fenty and I can justify my reasons for this standpoint. There is a time where you have to get behind the leadership whoever that might be and go with them. I feel we are at this point now.

Love that Ollie referred to JF as Squeaky in the post match interview! To me, it depends on whether you believe a new stadium is more important than new ownership, a change is needed but a stadium is imperative.

Fenty and the board have taken us to the lowest point since the club formed, if the last15 years doesn’t scream failure I’m not sure what does. There has never been a 15 year spell when we have been so poor, the history books don’t lie,  how any can defend his ineptitude is beyond me

I must admit when i opened the programme and saw " Notes from the non Chairman" page i groaned, reading the article i groaned , no takeover, club now pursuing Freeman St as its preferred option and Philip Day will be representing the club as JF has a conflict of interests.  
So yet again we are at a starting point, we dont own the land, we dont have funds to build, there are several other key stakeholders to satisfy, NELC ( admittedly easier now all Tory council & M.P's in power ), LHP and The Freeman.
The Freeman have already got plans in for some of the Freeman St land reducing the space available, we have lost at least a couple of years of planning where we could have been in with the Freeman prior to them already putting their plans in place but for someones insistance that PP was THE site.

Really dont know what to think, previous "move" history has shown that nothing will come of it so again i am sceptical.

The one bright spot from the article though, IH has been formally appointed to the board and IH will now be responsible for the direction of the club entirely and also be the spokesman.

Maybe, maybe not. I’d just like to know what Chapman and Marley do to contribute.

Intrigued to know the reasons behind your possible change of position over JF?
Is it just the appointment of IH or other reasons?
Lots of folks reversing on their previous positions.

The game has changed with the arrival of Ollie. It may be that in a way we already have a change of ownership. So even board critics like me have to face a new reality.

This is not going to go away so best to shelve our Fenty Out banners for now and see what happens over the next 12 months eh?
