Quoted from Davec
So 3-5 years to deliver the new stadium, so we should expect to see artist impressions and miniature models etc this year at some point.

All being well we could be starting 23-24 or 24-25, 25-26 season in the Fentydome!


When will we get our free caps???


In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

Quoted from rancido



. The fact that JF and the Board have stated that they are now going forward with their plans for a new ground "on their own" indicates that they must have some kind of business strategy to achieve this.


It indicates nothing of the sort Rancido. Councillor Fenty was 100% behind Great Coates long after it ceased to be viable without a shred of evidence he had a real business plan. He pursued Peaks Parkway without a shred of evidence that there was a business plan other than another pipe dream. He couldn’t even get a bona fide developer on board instead of a bunch of skateboarders who’d swallowed a marketing dictionary. The guy wouldn’t know a business strategy if we’re slapped in the face with a big thick folio with ‘Business Strategy - my secret strategy in business’ in 4 inch letters were printed on the front by Bill Gates.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Sounds like Blackadder!  Rancido being Private Baldrick and Fenty Captain Darling?

As JF is a self-made millionaire I will accept he knows more about a business strategy than most of us posters and has certainly taken correct decisions in his own business dealings. Clearly these have not over the years been easily or successfully transferred to his running of a football club but I like many others are hoping that the appointment of IH is the start of his decision making being more successful and that the new ground is literally around the corner, as three false dawns might be one too many for the majority and result in many of us posters never getting the chance to see and visit our new home.

Correct decisions? Allowing a bloke who made money by essentially ticket touting? Bringing in an lottery winner who was clearly a bit of moron? Agreeing a ridiculous deal with HMRC which essentially imposed austerity on the club giving us the worst 20 years in our history pretty much? Are there not some ongoing tax related issues surrounding a business connected to Fenty?

I mean just becauee the bloke sold a business for a few quid, doesn’t mean he has any idea how to business plan for a football club, let alone for a stadium that will cost more than anyone is willing to part with or actually has, on land that nobody seems to know who owns.

We’re talking about the man/club that still went after two locations for a stadium that were proven to be unfit and ridiculous choices.

Simple fact is, people have genuine curiosity about where the cash will come from, added to that, Day heading up the project, with zero experience is naturally a concern...but the burning question is, will we all get a free hat last home game of the season...
