Dear Players of Grimsby Town FC

I am writing with regard to my absolute astonishment and disbelief as to the sheer magnitude of your complete lack of talent and failure to carry out the job for which you are paid to do. I am not aware of any swear word or other derogatory phrase in my current vocabulary which comes close to a description of your ‘performance’ (and I use that term loosely) this afternoon, but let me just say that you have collectively reached a level of inadequacy and ineptitude that neither I nor modern science had previously considered possible.

In fact I recall a time, in my youth, when I decided to call in sick at work and instead spent the entire day in my one bedroom flat wearing nothing but my underpants, eating toast and wánking furiously over second-rate Scandinavian porn. Yet somehow, I still managed to contribute more to my employer in that one Andrex-filled day than you complete bunch of toss-baskets have contributed to this club in your entire time here.

I would genuinely like to know how you pathetic little píssflaps sleep at night, knowing full well that you have taken my money and that of several thousand others and delivered precisely fúck all in return. I run a business myself, and I believe I could take any 4,000 of my customers at random; burn down their houses, impregnate their wives and then dismember their children before systematically sending them back in the post, limb-by-limb, and still ensure a level of customer satisfaction which exceeds that which I have experienced at Blundell Park at any time so far this season.

You are a total disgrace, not only to your profession, not only to the human race, but to nature itself. This may sound like an exaggeration, but believe me when I say that I have passed kidney stones which have brought me a greater level of pleasure and entertainment than watching each of you worthless excuses for professional footballers attempt to play a game you are clearly incapable of playing, week-in, week-out.

I considered, for a second, that I was perhaps being a little too harsh. But then I recalled that I have blindly given you all the benefit of the doubt for too long now. Yes, for too long you have failed to earn the air you’ve been breathing by offering any kind of tangible quality either as footballers or as people in general. As such, I feel it’s only fair that your supply runs out forthwith.

I trust, at this precise moment in time, that Mr Fenty is in his office tapping away on the Easyjet web site booking you all one-way flights to Zurich, complete with an overnight stay with our cheese eating friends at Dignitas. Don’t bother packing your toothbrush – you won’t need it.

In the event that our beloved chairman can’t afford the expense (understandable given that he’s soon going to have to assemble a new squad from scratch), then I am prepared to sell my family (including my unborn child) to a dubious consortium of Middle Eastern businessmen in order to pay for the flights. Christ, I’ll drive you there myself, one-by one, without sleep, if I have to.

Failing that, understanding that most dubious Middle Eastern businessmen are tied-up purchasing Premier League football clubs, I ask you to please take matters into your hands. Use your imagination, guys – strangle yourselves or cover yourself in tinfoil and take a fork to a nearby plug socket, or something. Just put yourselves and us fans out of our collective misery.

So, in summary, you pack of repugnant, sputum-filled, invertebrate bástards; leave this club now and don’t you fúcking dare look back. You’ve consistently demonstrated less passion and desire than can commonly be found within the contents of a sloth’s scrótum, so frankly you can just all fúck off – don’t pass go, don’t collect your wages, don’t ever come back to this town again.

I look forward to you serving me at my local McDonald’s drive-thru in the near future.

Yours sincerely

Couldn't have put it better myself. Post of the week.


Those were the days, my friend,
We took the Stretford End,
We took the Kop, the Kippax and the Shed,
We lived the life we choose,
We'd fight, we'd never lose,
Those were the days, oh yes those were the days,
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, Town!

Fúck it - it's gone in the post. Taking into account the current state of the postal service the club should receive it shortly before we reach the Unibond Premier.

Yep agree let the young lads have their moment of fame of being on TV and playing at Elland Road, rather pay to see that than go see the excrement that the first team have to offer!

PLEASE, somebody in the halls of GTFC print this off and post it everywhere inside the club. Let's show these pathetic excuses for footballers what we really think of them.

flipping class post, cheered me up to be honest, thought I was the only one who felt like that.

Today was all about professionallism, doing the right things, turn up with the right attitude, play with a good tempo, put in the effort and workrate, do your job and go into the next round. The f**king w@nkers couldn't even manage that, I don't think Bath even had to play that well to beat us.

It just showed what a complete and utter bunch of t*ssers we have as players, they don't want to play for us, they don't want to play for the shirt, they don't want to play for the manager and they don't want to play for themselves. Absolute spineless barstewards, if they had anything about themselves they would donate their match fee to people who deserve it, like 'Help for Heros'.

If what you're saying is true then don't you think we have an even bigger problem? We gave our all, were motivated and determined yet somehow still got played off the park by a semi-professional side two divisions below us. And let's be honest, Bath aren't a non-league side brimming with confidence either - they're in the bottom half of their respective division!

I've said it before but it's clear to me that our players are losers in their own mind. They need to go, the lot of them, for us to make a fresh start - the thing is, that can't happen until May at the earliest, and I fear that may be too late.

Is there copyright on that letter Poojah? ...... I was thinking of using it if we don't beat you in a fortnight or so?

Your question is irrelevent - you won't need it.

This post is wasted on that shower of excrement to much humour/intellect that any of them could ever probably understand, Imagine the response if this was read to them? . Half of them would just stare with a "gone out" look on there faces the other half would just think the post was talking about the other half.

Think you may have hit the nail on the head there fella.

The problem is that half the Town players would think they are talking about the other half.  While the other half of the Town players would think they are talking about the other half.    

Wait for it.....

Shrews fan here in peace too!!! As you know we went through a torrid time a few years back so we know what you're going through, however, you have loads of time to get things sorted..

Anyway, the other Salopian poster said about Poojahs thread on here and have to say that that really does have to be nominated for the rivals board post of the century..

I wish you all well chaps and ladies and hope that Poojahs message hits the right ball sack and shocks them into turning your season around.

All the best.. Blum

Never mind about sending them to Dignitas. Colgan was seen outside McDonalds earlier today threatening to throw himself under a bus bound for Cleethorpes. Trouble is, the bus was taking fares near Isaac's Hill before Colgan had managed to get to ground.

You've spotted that too, I'm not convinced about Colgan and haven't been since his performance at Cheltenham.



Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

Dear Poojah

As you may have guessed by my moniker your rant has now spread well beyond the realms of Grimsby Town supporters. Your message to your players will I feel sure strike a chord with all of us who've been there at some point, got depressed and yet still wear the t-shirt. As for myself I regard your slight annoyance with your players as a classic piece of fan invective. Fabulous stuff mate and quite possibly football rant of the year.

Gooner 48 - One life, one game, one team, three doubles and an unbeaten season....although maybe I shouldn't be mentioning such things to Grimsby fans right now

Quoted from Poojah
Dear Players of Grimsby Town FC

I am writing with regard to my absolute astonishment and disbelief as to the sheer magnitude of your complete lack of talent and failure to carry out the job for which you are paid to do. I am not aware of any swear word or other derogatory phrase in my current vocabulary which comes close to a description of your ‘performance’ (and I use that term loosely) this afternoon, but let me just say that you have collectively reached a level of inadequacy and ineptitude that neither I nor modern science had previously considered possible.

In fact I recall a time, in my youth, when I decided to call in sick at work and instead spent the entire day in my one bedroom flat wearing nothing but my underpants, eating toast and wánking furiously over second-rate Scandinavian porn. Yet somehow, I still managed to contribute more to my employer in that one Andrex-filled day than you complete bunch of toss-baskets have contributed to this club in your entire time here.

I would genuinely like to know how you pathetic little píssflaps sleep at night, knowing full well that you have taken my money and that of several thousand others and delivered precisely fúck all in return. I run a business myself, and I believe I could take any 4,000 of my customers at random; burn down their houses, impregnate their wives and then dismember their children before systematically sending them back in the post, limb-by-limb, and still ensure a level of customer satisfaction which exceeds that which I have experienced at Blundell Park at any time so far this season.

You are a total disgrace, not only to your profession, not only to the human race, but to nature itself. This may sound like an exaggeration, but believe me when I say that I have passed kidney stones which have brought me a greater level of pleasure and entertainment than watching each of you worthless excuses for professional footballers attempt to play a game you are clearly incapable of playing, week-in, week-out.

I considered, for a second, that I was perhaps being a little too harsh. But then I recalled that I have blindly given you all the benefit of the doubt for too long now. Yes, for too long you have failed to earn the air you’ve been breathing by offering any kind of tangible quality either as footballers or as people in general. As such, I feel it’s only fair that your supply runs out forthwith.

I trust, at this precise moment in time, that Mr Fenty is in his office tapping away on the Easyjet web site booking you all one-way flights to Zurich, complete with an overnight stay with our cheese eating friends at Dignitas. Don’t bother packing your toothbrush – you won’t need it.

In the event that our beloved chairman can’t afford the expense (understandable given that he’s soon going to have to assemble a new squad from scratch), then I am prepared to sell my family (including my unborn child) to a dubious consortium of Middle Eastern businessmen in order to pay for the flights. Christ, I’ll drive you there myself, one-by one, without sleep, if I have to.

Failing that, understanding that most dubious Middle Eastern businessmen are tied-up purchasing Premier League football clubs, I ask you to please take matters into your hands. Use your imagination, guys – strangle yourselves or cover yourself in tinfoil and take a fork to a nearby plug socket, or something. Just put yourselves and us fans out of our collective misery.

So, in summary, you pack of repugnant, sputum-filled, invertebrate bástards; leave this club now and don’t you fúcking dare look back. You’ve consistently demonstrated less passion and desire than can commonly be found within the contents of a sloth’s scrótum, so frankly you can just all fúck off – don’t pass go, don’t collect your wages, don’t ever come back to this town again.

I look forward to you serving me at my local McDonald’s drive-thru in the near future.

Yours sincerely


A very disillusioned Mariner



We played ok tonight but this is my feelings exactly Fantastic post that should be printed and read out on Saturday afternoon at 2.45. to all of the players.

Wow. Genuniely taken aback by how far this seems to have spread. Was just trying to bring a bit of lighthearted humour to a day on which the club seemed to have slumped to a new, new low. Thanks for all of the kind words - glad people found it amusing.

The word continues to spread on this as it's now gone global. I got it via a Southend United forum and then posted it onto a forum for Australian A-League team Brisbane Roar (I'm a Shrimper living out here in Brisbane now).

These feelings are universal for all but the fans of a very few clubs around the world at some time or another. Absolutely brilliant!

So far its on forums of Sunderland, Crystal Palace, Hereford, Rochdale, Darlington, Bath City, Lincoln, Shrewsbury, Notts County, Macclesfield, Hartlepool, Cheltenham and a good few general football forums. (I googled the link and "repugnant, sputum-filled, invertebrate bástards")

Poojah, aka angry Grimsby fan on many forums, has created a viral PR campaign for the fans of Grimsby Town.   excellent.

ive noticed the german keeper robert enke managed to jump in front of a train and he wasnt nearly as bad as any our lot.come on grimsby players do it ,suck on a hose connected to your exhaust,jump in the bath with the toaster,jump off freemo flats ,walk out into the sea ,id even be happy to pay for a one way ticket to switzerland to that dignitas clinic, do it, do it ,do it.lets face it lads playing for badly for a team that is now[because of you lot] on its way out of the league is likely to be the pinnicle of your careers.your likely to be on the scrapheap as soon as we manage to get rid of you all and being thick daft footballers[maybe footballers wasnt the best way to describe you lot] id be suprised if any of you found the cure for cancer .so go on kill yourselves

Please Mr Fenty, threaten the next player who underperforms woefully that he well be exchanged for a month with an Aylesbury player, with wage amounts swapped accordingly.

I have sent a copy to John and asked him to put a copy in the dressing room before the match on Saturday.  It should be made mandatory to be read by all and be the kick up the backside they require and deserve. Again.  Great effort Poojar!  lol  UTM!!

I've just had the link to Poojah's posting e-mailed to me by a mate near Aberdeen.
Being a Chelsea fan from down south I am unfortunately unable to comment about the highs and lows of Grimsby Town FC. However, I thought it right to post on here and say as a fellow football fan, Poojah.....top draw posting, you are a legend mate and if you ever find yourself at the Bridge then the beers are on us.

I will from time to time go on line and search for the local Grimsby news, as i'm sure in the near future we will hear reports of someone called Poojah walking on water and turning water in to wine.

Good luck for the rest of the season guys.

a few friends of mine have asked me if I've seen 'that' post on the Grimsby Town forum? it's certainly doing the rounds. I'm sure the players have seen it by now. great post!

Haha, my mate goes on there and has just sent me an email with the letter asking if Ive seen it and intro'ing it "Someone has just posted this on our Liverpool forum. I dunno where he got it from but he's a glory hunting traitor who lives in Cleethorpes and apparently it's a letter someone sent to all the Grimsby players after the Bath game."

It was terrible, some of the worst defending I have ever witnessed came under the Ternent era. I remember getting tonked 7-2 off an already relegated Sheff Weds.
Not as bad as the Division 4 days though....

It wasnt that long ago that we played Luton Town in a memorable 3-2 win and look at them now.
Good luck for the season anyway and look to Burnley as to what can be achieved with next to no money

Dear Lord....this is HUGE. The only next logical step is to give Poojah a free pass for the next home game, line up the team in the centre and let him chuck rotten tomatoes at them in front of a baying Blundell Park.

Soccer AM for Poojah? Imagine him standing up to read out his rant on the show. I have no idea who you are Poojah, and if I'm honest think your rant is a bit much, but totally get the fraustration and anger that has got you to the point of writing it. What is great though is that the Fishy and all those that sail in her are well chuffed that tens of thousands on people have in some way empathised with the travails of a Mariners fan.

...Fulham fan in peace - and in tears of laughter, just saw this thread on our message board, http://friendsoffulham.websitetoolbox.com/post?id=3807003 I am sure many of us can relate to Poojahs outburst especially Fulham fans who have experienced all the divisions and endured crap teams.

Thanks for the laugh, a brilliant post which has been picked up by an Everton fan who posts on our board, he will put a link to his toffeetalk message board - and I hope there is a turn around in your fortunes..

We were beat 6-5 from your boys, 6-2 from Rotherham, 5-2 from Reading, 7-4 from Watford and 7-2 from Sheffield Wednesday in that season.
Horrific defending at times, I have definitely felt like Poojah in his original post. I think thats why its been such a success - not only because its funny but a lot of fans have been there!

Poojah you may have saved the club by saying what the majority of us were feeling. It was a long time in coming and we have more than been patient with the players and the way they have under performed. Also with Town fans in great voice and numbers that went they can not say that we haven't been behind them. It's down to them to respond and start moving us up this league.

This has gone global and fans everywhere (apart from glory hunters and the big 4) have felt these lows.


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

Read this on a link from a Rochdale Fan on the AFC Wimbledon website. Absolute class.

We have always had a huge soft spot for Grimsby following the anti-franchise t-shirts  

As a Don exiled in West Yorkshire this means I have mixed feelings. I would love to see you turn around your fortunes but Grimsby is a very reachable away game for me. Since we have no hope of going up this year perhaps you would be kind enough to stay up at the expense of Bradford City who are quite a bit closer.

Great letter. It shows what passionate fans exist outside the Premiership - hopefully the players will read it and realise how fortunate they are to professional footballers and how badly they have underachieved and let the fans down.

Quoted from Poojah
Dear Players of Grimsby Town FC

I am writing with regard to my absolute astonishment and disbelief as to the sheer magnitude of your complete lack of talent and failure to carry out the job for which you are paid to do. I am not aware of any swear word or other derogatory phrase in my current vocabulary which comes close to a description of your ‘performance’ (and I use that term loosely) this afternoon, but let me just say that you have collectively reached a level of inadequacy and ineptitude that neither I nor modern science had previously considered possible.

In fact I recall a time, in my youth, when I decided to call in sick at work and instead spent the entire day in my one bedroom flat wearing nothing but my underpants, eating toast and wánking furiously over second-rate Scandinavian porn. Yet somehow, I still managed to contribute more to my employer in that one Andrex-filled day than you complete bunch of toss-baskets have contributed to this club in your entire time here.

I would genuinely like to know how you pathetic little píssflaps sleep at night, knowing full well that you have taken my money and that of several thousand others and delivered precisely fúck all in return. I run a business myself, and I believe I could take any 4,000 of my customers at random; burn down their houses, impregnate their wives and then dismember their children before systematically sending them back in the post, limb-by-limb, and still ensure a level of customer satisfaction which exceeds that which I have experienced at Blundell Park at any time so far this season.

You are a total disgrace, not only to your profession, not only to the human race, but to nature itself. This may sound like an exaggeration, but believe me when I say that I have passed kidney stones which have brought me a greater level of pleasure and entertainment than watching each of you worthless excuses for professional footballers attempt to play a game you are clearly incapable of playing, week-in, week-out.

I considered, for a second, that I was perhaps being a little too harsh. But then I recalled that I have blindly given you all the benefit of the doubt for too long now. Yes, for too long you have failed to earn the air you’ve been breathing by offering any kind of tangible quality either as footballers or as people in general. As such, I feel it’s only fair that your supply runs out forthwith.

I trust, at this precise moment in time, that Mr Fenty is in his office tapping away on the Easyjet web site booking you all one-way flights to Zurich, complete with an overnight stay with our cheese eating friends at Dignitas. Don’t bother packing your toothbrush – you won’t need it.

In the event that our beloved chairman can’t afford the expense (understandable given that he’s soon going to have to assemble a new squad from scratch), then I am prepared to sell my family (including my unborn child) to a dubious consortium of Middle Eastern businessmen in order to pay for the flights. Christ, I’ll drive you there myself, one-by one, without sleep, if I have to.

Failing that, understanding that most dubious Middle Eastern businessmen are tied-up purchasing Premier League football clubs, I ask you to please take matters into your hands. Use your imagination, guys – strangle yourselves or cover yourself in tinfoil and take a fork to a nearby plug socket, or something. Just put yourselves and us fans out of our collective misery.

So, in summary, you pack of repugnant, sputum-filled, invertebrate bástards; leave this club now and don’t you fúcking dare look back. You’ve consistently demonstrated less passion and desire than can commonly be found within the contents of a sloth’s scrótum, so frankly you can just all fúck off – don’t pass go, don’t collect your wages, don’t ever come back to this town again.

I look forward to you serving me at my local McDonald’s drive-thru in the near future.

Yours sincerely


A very disillusioned Mariner

Poojah you may have saved the club by saying what the majority of us were feeling.


OK, let's not go over the top.

I love the post, it's funny and passionate, but Poojah I don't think it has saved the club. Sorry and all.

I think the point is that this post of Poojahs has brought the genuine fan together a little more. The football message forum, usually the domain for the sneering and often aggressive away fan, has been shown to be a place for a genuinely common interest amongst us all: the love of our own club, no matter who it is or how well they are doing now. As has been said so often in this thread, we've all been there and felt like this but stick with it through thick and thin.

I am appalled but not surprised that this post is still getting rave reviews despite the desperately sad death of Robert Enke. I hope and trust that Soccer AM will have nothing to do with it this week, of all weeks!
I'm sure that it was intended as 'a bit of fun' but Enke's death should remind everybody that footballers are human beings too!

Also, surely the players will have read it by now? Although I guess thats presuming they can turn on a computer.....probably too complicated for them.
Even if they could turn a computer on and read it, most of em would be to thick, arrogant or both to realise it's about them - I refer to players as a whole, not just GTFC!

I can see where you are coming from and a lot of it is in bad taste but it was written probably 72 hours before Enke's death and cannot be linked to that. Yes, footballers are human but I don't suppose Enke's troubles were down to criticism of his footballing abilities more to do with personal tragedy.

Thanks for putting a smile on my face this dull morning!

Greetings from the Ayr United fans forum currently bottom of the Scottish 1st division,

http://www.honestpage.co.uk/mboard/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=11757

I'm sure many football fans apart from your 'big four' and our 'big two' can sympathise with your situation. Will be looking for your next result, in fact i might even put £20 on it because if 42,000 football fans around the globe have read this i'm sure your 'team' have and may well just get the message!

Bestof luck for the rest of the season

Could any of the players this refers to confirm or not that the squad have seen this? Would be even better to get some sort of fighting response from the skipper. Show us all you've got some balls and some humility.


Batch, Crombie, Moore K, Wiggington, Cumming, Waters, Bonnyman, Ford, Emson, Drinkell, Whymark. Love you all, You are the reason I'm on here. You've had help from Todd, Handyside, Futcher P, Groves, Mendonca, Macca etc etc etc. Up The Mariners!!!!!!!!!

I thought that some of the posters on here were Facebook friends with some of the players, it would be easy enough to send them a link on there.

The reaction to this has been big, but i must be alone in thinking if the players do read this, it'll do the exact opposite of spurring them on. I just don't think it's helping, even if we can all relate to it.

Colchester Fan here - was on our Official Message board a couple of days ago but stumbled across it via a Wycombe forum again today

Quality post and reminds me of the days when we got relegated to the conference -  anyway I am now adopting Grimsby as my second team and will follow your results! (may even try and get a few of the Col U lads to do a weekend up your way to take in a match).

Good luck fellow fishy fans!

Plymouth Argyle fan here - what a post, it was on our board and we loved it!  Hope it turns around for you, we know what it feels like to lose to crappy fourth division teams on a weekly basis.  We got out of it, there's no reason that you can't!

Incidentally, I was at your away game at Chester last year and your away support that day was exceptional.

I thought I'd pop in and say I saw this on a Washington Redskins (American football) forum. I was astonished.

I am sorry to say that though I am an American and an avid football fan, I am only versed in the larger leagues (ie the Premier League, La Liga) and have never heard of Grimsby Town. Good luck to your team as the season continues. It sound like you need it

I also would have thought that a pro wouldn't have to be told that we don't expect miracles. A little consistency, a lot of effort and a bucketful of heart is all that's required when you turn out in front of 4000 people who wish they had the talent and good fortune to be able to pull on that black and white shirt.

It means something to us and it should mean more to them than a series of numbers on their bank statements, going through the motions and hoping the team will carry them isn't going to keep us up. Hopefully they will see poojahs post and get any sort of reaction, if it makes them more half-arsed and inept than they already are then they really shouldn't be here at all.

Of course not, but talk of putting this up in the dressing room and so on, think that'll really help change things? I would say 50% of our squad isn't good enough. They know that as well as we do. We can't change it, and I doubt they can. If you was shown this letter about your ability in your job, would it motivate you? It wouldn't me. And if we want the players who aren't good enough to leave, fine. But who the hell are we going to replace them with? We've tried this time and time again (Newey and barnes spring to mind, who's replacements are hardly better)

I would have, quite seriously, been sacked.
Thing is, when Poojah wrote this it was intended to be shared between us Fishy-ites, not for National or even GLOBAL exposure. Those coming on here aren't taking the p**s, they are saying that it strikes a chord, they've all been there. You may disagree with the (huge) scale of this potential humiliation of the team but that was'nt Poojahs intention.

I'm fully aware of that, but nonetheless, between us or the wider sporting community, it's not the sort of thing I'd want the players seeing. Just my opinion like. I love the fact we've gotten some exposure don't get me wrong, if we get a few more followers from this, then great, but it's not good for the squad, even in jest.

sorry dan ,but having seen some of the humiliations and capitulations that i have over the last couple of years and the fact that they are still getting the levels of support we saw at chletenham barnet and leeds, then i think they've had a bluddy easy life so far.let the new manager come in, with poojah's letter in his hand and tell 'em straight from day 1 that he never ever wants to see performances that give rise to such rage and frustration

intercourse the players! As has been said countless times we wouldn't be so annoyed and angry if the players showed effort and passion but there has been no show of that. If the Bath defeat had been out of the blue, a cup shock then fine we could all get over it embarrassing yes and disappointing but this wasn't this was expected by the majority. We expected the players to fold and give nothing which they dutifully did. The facts are that alot of these players need the biggest kick up their fat arses or they can be given a one way ticket out of here. They've had enough chances.

One of the major things to come out of this fantastic post is the fact that most other fans around the country are looking at our result (after their own) and will probably continue to do that for some months/years. There are even Colchester fans looking to get together and visit a Town home game. Poojah has probably down more for GTFC and the local tourism industry in one post than the club, local authority tourism department etc have achieved in a decade. The players may not like being told they have been performing crap. Unless someone (who in effect pays their wages) tells them they are never going to change; are they?

You can add Barnsley to the list - got an e-mail at work from one of their fans asking if I'd written it. I wish!


Those were the days, my friend,
We took the Stretford End,
We took the Kop, the Kippax and the Shed,
We lived the life we choose,
We'd fight, we'd never lose,
Those were the days, oh yes those were the days,
Nah nah nah nah nah nah, Town!

Made it on to Cobblers Comments today...

And even though they thought they had it bad right now (losing to their local rivals the MKDonuts) I hope that in reading Poojah's cry from the heart, those Cobblers won't allow Schadenfreude to inspire them to cast aside all their own personal woes on Saturday. They can leave him on the bench.

Here it is...

http://web.ukonline.co.uk/ntfc/ppcc3hok.htm

I got a call from a mate who's an avid Cobblers fan this afternoon to ask if I'd seen it

Told him that whilst it summed up my feelings it couldn't have been me who posted it...I don't remember ever owning any second-rate Scandinavian porn. I always wanted the good stuff!

I used to work with a Scouser, he hadn't been to a game in over 10 years but he would be spitting feathers if they drew or lost to anyone outside the top 4. It doesn't surprise me that they have nicked his letter, they'd rob the steam off your shite if they could get 10 bob for it.

Could who ever is compiling the list of Footy, Ice Hockey, American Football, Rugby or any other sort of club that has posted Poojah's letter put it in some sporting order please.


Football Forums

Ice Hockey

American Football


Cheers buddy.

I would say to Dan, we have been putting up with shite for the last decade; it was about time someone let rip.  We have given them our full support and if it ruffles their feathers a bit, then so be it.  The ones who stand up and start earning the right to wear the Black & White stripes will be forgiven the others will fade away into non league where they deserve to be.  Town fans have never given up and poojah's letter is just the recharge we all needed.  No player will be tarnished if they show heart, fight and dogged determination when they represent us.


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

I wouldn't normally register with a site to post on something I know absolutely nothing about, but feel the sentiment in Poojah's letter could probably apply to many teams in various sports, although not many other sports pay the obscene wages that football does in this country.

I picked this up off the lounge section of  THE ice hockey forum where a lot of fans visit from all over the world!

I hope things start to pick up for Grimsby soon.

Registered so you could add the real "Pool" to your list. It's been on a Blackpool message board. Always looked out for you lot since you signed Paul Groves, fantastic player i always thought. A lot better than the last 2 former Pool players you've add, Phil Barnes and Adrian Forbes! I won't add Mike Newell. Despite our recent success, i'm sure many a Blackpool fan can relate to the post. Think of it as being a character building process.

I would have, quite seriously, been sacked.
Thing is, when Poojah wrote this it was intended to be shared between us Fishy-ites, not for National or even GLOBAL exposure. Those coming on here aren't taking the p**s, they are saying that it strikes a chord, they've all been there. You may disagree with the (huge) scale of this potential humiliation of the team but that was'nt Poojahs intention.


But that hasn't happened, not even close. READ the replys.  Most admit that Poojah has put into words what fans from ost clubs have felt at some stage. for every reply taking the p1ss there are 100 wishing us luck.  It the players can't handle it then they are in the wrong job.  Of course the likes of BRADLEY MARINER will always end up RATHERFEDUP but the vast majority of Town fans (and fans around the world it seems) are in support.

Got sent it today by a Middlesbrough fan and a plastic Liverpool fan I work with asked if I'd written it. I only wish I could claim the credit for it. Saturday's performance lowered me to depths of depression that left me unable, probably unwilling, to vent my frustrations at those players any more (much to Biccys' disappointment). Poojah, you speak for us all and I doff my hat to your greatness.

This is the best post i have ever read on any forum and have thoroughly enjoyed reading the replies from other teams fans, their messages bring slight comfort in what is IMO our darkest hour, just knowing that we aint the first fans to have felt like Poojah and we definately wont be the last is a comfort.

I think something like this has been brewing for a long time and hopefully will not only spur the players on but also get a few extra bums on seats(although that might not help our performances in the slightest)

Poojah thank you so much for saying what all other fans were thinking in their own little way

Greetings from Norway!

Just registered to say that is something of the funniest I've ever read on a footie-forum. Think every fan of a Norwegian-club (except illegitimate-child Rosenborg, obviously) can relate to that, we have all been there..

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't I see you in a cupfinal or play-off final against MK Dons at Wembley just a couple of seasons ago? To my recollection you seemed to play well on the day, and had loads of supporters there. How can you be stuck in the bottom of the league?? Saw Accrington Stanley lose at Brentford last year. Surely you are better than them?

Will definitely look for your result come Saturday. Best wishes for the rest of the season!

I think the vast majority of people have taken this in light it was intended, but I just wanted to clarify a few things for those who've taken offence in some way.

I wrote the post in a purposely over-the-top, satirical way - it was never meant to be taken seriously! Just to be clear, it wasn't a reflection of my actual opinion but rather an attempt at a humorous slant on our current predicament. For the record, I have better control of my emotions than the rant might suggest!

Obviously, there's an element of my post which now appears in somewhat bad taste in light of the recent tragedy with the German goalkeeper, but to be fair by the time that particular story broke it was a bit late to do anything about it, such is the explosive rate at which this thread has spread.

The thing is, as daft as it sounds, even as a grown man the players who represent this club are my idols. It's just gut-wrenching to feel let down by your idols so often. I hope the players, if they have read this, take it in the spirit it was intended and give each and every one of us long-suffering Town fans something to cheer about on Saturday and beyond!

Let's make this the turning point, boys. Come on Town!

99% of us know that Poojah, you do not have to justify yourself in any way.  You should be well happy with your 15 mins (+) of fame and enjoy.  I suspect if you felt so inclined, by making your presence known at any game would result in several free beers.  should you choose Malibu's we would then know you are Biccy's in disguise.  

Enjoy.

You should be well happy with your 15 mins (+) of fame and enjoy.



If anything, I feel a little embarrassed.  

Seriously, the scale of this has taken me completely by surprise - I was just killing some time before the David Haye fight on Saturday night, and now it's turned into this!

Quoted from Poojah
I think the vast majority of people have taken this in light it was intended, but I just wanted to clarify a few things for those who've taken offence in some way.

I wrote the post in a purposely over-the-top, satirical way - it was never meant to be taken seriously! Just to be clear, it wasn't a reflection of my actual opinion but rather an attempt at a humorous sland on our current predicament. For the record, I have better control of my emotions than the rant might suggest!

Obviously, there's an element of my post which now appears in somewhat bad taste in light of the recent tragedy with the German goalkeeper, but to be fair by the time that particular story broke it was a bit late to do anything about it, such is the explosive rate at which this thread has spread.


The thing is, as daft as it sounds, even as a grown man the players who represent this club are my idols. It's just gut-wrenching to feel let down by your idols so often. I hope the players, if they have read this, take it in the spirit it was intended and give each and every one of us long-suffering Town fans something to cheer about on Saturday and beyond!

Let's make this the turning point, boys. Come on Town!


All the people on here know how you feel and evidently others feel the same outside of GTFC it hurts like hell and we all wish we could pull on a shirt and at least guarantee some bloody effort on the field.UTM

you dont have to explain anything sir poojah,if people get offended[especially the players] then so be it,id rather the whole country be laughing at them than us.fans from other teams have taken the time to have a quick read of our forum and realise our current postion in purely down to the players.we've had some investment were not in a chester or even a luton situation.our plight lies on the players shoulders and now its up to them to save their own careers and our club and start playing like professional footballers

Anyway. Poojah, hope you've lanced the boil and unleash a torrent of Town, Town, Town on Sat.

What you wrote is what this game needs. Not just Town. Hence the vibrantly twanging chord around planet football.

This is one of my proudest days as a town fan. The superbly detailed reference to low quality scandinavian porn gives it a poetry that very few professional writers could hope to emulate. If we stay up this year I would attribute a significant portion of the credit to you.

Just had to register to say that the link appeared on the Hitchin Town FC website too (not up there with Arsenal and Liverpool etc but news is still spreading far and wide!)  Poojah you are a legend, that is one of the funniest things I have read and we can all sympathise with you!  I will certainly be checking your future results after I have checked Arsenal and Hitchin Town's.  Lets hope this is the start of the rest of a great season for you all!  All the very best to Grimsby Town FC.

Saw this on the Stoke board, fair rant that, AND everyone agree's.  Things that bad up your way!?  Judging by the moaning on our board, being 9th in the Premier League is the equivilent to having your helmet tickled with a nettle.

Gave me a chuckle anyway, just passing to say hello.

It just shows how fans all over the country can relate to the frustration of paying a fortune and being taken to the cleaners by players who are arguable paid too much and dont have the passion for the place/team that we love. We should never underestimate fan power to change the game we love.
P.S. Its refreshing to see fans of other teams come on here and be diplomatic - long may it continue!!

Hey guys,

Just joined to let you know that this letter has made its way to a Canberra Raiders Supporters forum in Australia. Skimming to this thread it seems you have made NFL and Ice Hockey forums already, well now you can add Rugby League to the list.

Easily one of funniest things I've ever seen.  Best of luck for the rest of the year for your club, hopefully you can get out of that relegation zone sooner rather than later.

I'll do my best to spread this great work to other people.
