I am like most Town fans keen for the takeover to happen but i have a few reservations about GTFC being a Private Limited Company.  

After our fans have hounded the owners to death, can they walk away and sell BP to developers for instance? Can they basically do whatever they want without being answerable to anyone or facing scrutiny? Can they do what Steve Dale did to Bury?

Just a thought

Owners doing what they like with no accountability, no interest in fans or the club long term, dealings with dodgy developers potentially with criminal backgrounds.

Sounds awful. Glad we don’t get any of that as a PLC.

This is an excellent short video by Tifo football explaining what both private and public limited companies are and the pros and cons of each. Worth a watch



"Falls to Arnold... Arnold! That's it! Thats it! He's sealed it! Grimsby Town are back in the football league!!! Just a minute to go and Nathan Arnold makes it 3-1! Look at the scenes behind the goal! Look at the relief! The agony is finally over!!!"

Jason and Andrew are both honest men and big fans of our great club.

So I believe every decision they make will be for the benefit of the club.

I somewhat agree Pete, but jason and Andrew won't be around forever. Need an eye on the mid to long term as well.

You can’t rely on the good intentions and sound judgement of two men for ever. Even if they are better than what we’ve got at the moment. It’s a big step forward, but like Wigworld says, we’ve got to think longer term.


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.

It makes absolutely no sense at all for a company the size of Grimsby Town to be a Plc. Regardless of Plc or Ltd status the people with a controlling stake in the company have exactly that, control. If Fenty had wanted to sell off BP the only person who could have stopped him from doing so is Mike Parker, it works exactly the same now we're going private. A big plus to going private is how much it cuts down on beaurocracy which is unnecessary, time consuming and inherently expensive.
