Soooo. On a sunny afternoon in Clee...mid May...last season largely forgotten....bumping into the odd fellow Mariner...and fck me...I don't know why given our recent track record...stupid football supporters....but most people I have spoken to are kind of optimistic and generally looking forward to the new season...
I kinda love it....kinda hate it....
Are we stupidly blind.....Are we Lemmings...or are we similar to 92 others and just hope for the best ?

I think our fan base is regularly the most idiotic bunch of weirdos in the country. I count myself in that as well.  I wouldn’t have it any other way. We are quite unique, I reckon.

I’ve worked across the country with fans of loads of lower league clubs and we/they’re all blindly optimistic in June and nervous wrecks in January.

When it's in your bloody moosey. it does not matter how old you are or where you live its in your blood and there is nothing you can do about it.

So enjoy the ride with all the ups and downs that comes with being a mariner.

Every season...it just resets in May....no matter the club situation there is always that blind hope that this will be our year.
We are going to make loads of  quality under the radar signings and romp the league playing liquid football aren't we?

I have a lot of hope for next season because I have the faith that our owners won’t member it up twice .

Always amazes me when I attend far flung games and the Town support at these games. (Me included).We just love it don't we; in our blood...










'I walked in the dressing room. The window was open and I thought that a sea fret had got in. Then I saw smoke billowing from a pipe in the corner of the room...it was my centre-forward. He looked seven stone wet through. He went on to score thirty-odd goals that season.' Lawrie McMenemy on encountering the legend that was Matt Tees.

I’d rather be a deluded lower league fan than be someone that follows a premier league team that’s never seen them outside of a tv screen

Woke up this morning & it’s just not the same when there’s no opportunity to put myself through GTFC masochism.
