JF -  Right gents, I have called this emergency board meeting so we can get our ducks in a row when it comes to releasing a statement before the takeover happens.

PD - we are deep in the sh1t here John, there is no way we can walk away from this without some serious sh1t sticking to our blanket

SM - Shut up Phillip

JF - listen....we just need a scapegoat, it's easy this , right who was here at the start of the season but isnt here now ?

PD- well about 15 loan players for a start John

SM - shut up Phillip

PD - Ian Holloway ?

JF- yes perfect,  we will shift all blame to the mad hatter, we can say he had the final say in everything and we just remained hands off and regards the other stuff we can say we just followed rules. Just for measure we can add we pay our bills and havnt taken out any loans (other than adding to my benign pile of course) and make out the other clubs arent as morally high as ourselves by breaking rules to remain in the EFL.
Actually to save time we could probably just cut and paste quite a bit from the Newell, Slade, Bignot, Slade, Jolley statements we used previously.

PD - moral high ground? You did set up a company with a convicted fraudster, invite him into our club and we were going to take his dirty money ...

SM - shut up Phillip

JF - that's sorted then ....sweet.

Quoted from ska face


I’m probably wrong, but imagine there may have been an agreement between the two parties that no statements would be made during the balloting period so as to not influence the votes.


There is quite a lot of corporate law governing what businesses can and can't publicly say when shares are being traded so the silence  may have been enforced rather than out of choice.

Quoted from ginnywings
Absolutely over the moon that the books are once again balanced and all the tax and national insurance is up to date; it will be a great comfort when we are away to Boreham Wood. Best run club ever.

Meanwhile, in the real world, all the other clubs did what it takes to get through the covid pandemic with their EFL status intact. So they may have borrowed some money or spent money they didn't really have, but the extra income they get from their league status will cushion the blow.

We, on the other hand, jumped all over any reason or excuse to cut corners and embraced the covid clause and salary caps like the short sighted charlatans they clearly are.

How many times have we heard the same sentiments in previous statements? Lessons never learned.


Time and again lessons never learned. Always go for the cheapest option, spend as little as you believe you can possibly get away with. Fenty literally cannot run the club in any other way, he's utterly incapable of it, surely even the blind can see that now..

Quoted from rancido
They (Fenty, Day or both) appear to try to to get some kudos from the fact that all the taxes, NI contributions etc have been paid. Surely that is a basic situation that any responsible business should do? I don't care what other clubs have done during this pandemic as regards finances, I only  care about GTFC's approach.


What day forgot to say is under takeover law that they MUST settle all taxes and national insurance before a takeover can legally happen

That's what I mean. They parade this like it's some kind of feather in their cap. But the reality is that any half organised business would do this and they had to anyway.

So the books were balanced and the bills were paid. And it’s only cost the new fellas 2 and a half million quid for this to happen. They’re talking like there is no debt attached to the club.

Morons until the very end.

Blame everyone else. Say they’ve paid tax/NI like any business should and claim it a victory, still try and take some moral high ground even though they were more than happy to bring in a convicted fraudster still awaiting deportation.

I mean the list is endless and whilst some will say fans would’ve criticised either way, if they’d apologised or produced this but we all know an apology was never coming.

They’re blind to the hatred, they numb to the issues they’ve caused and they’re ignorant about everything.

intercourse off John, take your mates with you and when you’ve copulated off, intercourse off some more...
