Or a takeover by Grimsby Borough?

Would be awesome under the dock tower.

Loads of haddock all over the place, think fog off the north sea, dodgy prostitutes touting for business in dark corners and lurking behind skips full of rotting fish. Tattooed losers from Cottee's lording it over any away fan daft enough to leave the relative safety of the fentydome.

The opposition would be beaten before they kicked off.

Realistically GC has been dead for some time now given that:

A) The club have yet to purchase the land, the land is agricultural land and (as mentioned earlier) agricultural land has doubled in value in the last five years
B) The development would require a commercial mortgage to fund a significant chunk of it and banks have clamped down on their lending
C) The recession has probably seen off any interest in retailers looking to particpate in the retail park for at least five years
D) Grants available at the time are no more due to planned government spending cuts
E) We are three divisions lower than when the plans were first mooted and costed

Other than that it is alive and kicking!


Mr McGee, don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.

Think the GC site was earmarked as we were in a different league then and we were looking at regularly getting several thousand away fans traveliing down the A180.


Maybe so but those days are only a few seasons away..... Potentially...

But realistic.     And the price of the land wouldn't be it's agricultural value either would it,Sutton Estates would want it's pound of flesh.

So looking elsewhere is no bad thing but for much further into the future. AGAIN.

Are we free of that tax debt nowadays?

Can't remember an announcement to say that it was done and dusted, unless i missed it. Last i remember hearing was that it was re-negotiated to allow us to pay if off in smaller installments over a slightly longer period. Think that was a couple of years ago though.
