Quoted from Tommy
I always find it interesting when people say we should all support English sides in Europe. When these English clubs with foreign owners, foreign managers and a team of foreign players (sometimes in their entirety) compete in the Champions League, the only English thing about them is the fans.

.
And not to mention the knock on effect of stifling young talent trying to get through.

I love Mourinho so for now I have a soft spot for Chelsea.

To be fair to him does get the most out of his players

Is there a link to what the Bolton and Brighton fans was saying ?
Loads of Brighton signed the petition >> [url=http://www.northstandchat.com/showthread.php?306840-Petition-New-Stadium-Grimsby-Town]http://www.northstandchat.com/showthread.php?306840-Petition-New-Stadium-Grimsby-Town[/url]

Fulham fans were good to! >> [url=http://www.friendsoffulham.com/forum/index.php?topic=41414.0]http://www.friendsoffulham.com/forum/index.php?topic=41414.0[/url]

Bolton >> [url=http://www.the-wanderer.co.uk/boards/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=25618]http://www.the-wanderer.co.uk/boards/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=25618[/url]

I haven't done a lot of big clubs yet, still to do the Everton, Manchester clubs, Liverpool, Sunderland, Newcastle, I did Arsenal, but that was just one forum they have a few!

Done a few Yorky clubs, but still to do Sheffield Wednesday / United, Donny, Hull etc etc.

I reckon we can get another 3,000 signatures from this, already got a thousand since a week ago lol.

From keeping tabs on the petition itself, around 100 Sunderland fans have signed the petition so far, bunch of good eggs >> [url=http://www.readytogo.net/smb/threads/petition-new-stadium-grimsby-town.955649/]http://www.readytogo.net/smb/threads/petition-new-stadium-grimsby-town.955649/[/url]

Dover fans about 15, not bad really considering, it's taking a while because im having to reply back to why we want a stadium, and negative posters on forums etc.  Most have been postive.

I reckon we will have 6,000 signatures by Thursday, not sure whether to do other leagues, even ones in Europe - google translate for the win!

I've only done 40 teams so far, hardly any massive clubs.

Reading the views and comments from the Bolton and Brighton fans, with regards to town and our lovely family club

So come on, who do you have a soft spot for and who do you have a blatant disregard for???? (Outside of our local neighbours of course)


My soft spot used to be Accy Stanley, always felt welcome in the Clayton End when I used to go when Town weren't playing. Don't really have one anymore, like to see any prem team do well who are full of home grown talent.. Burnley, Liverpool etc

Quoted from promotion plaice

I'm a proud Englishman and could never wan't one of our team's to lose to the foreigner's ( not even Hull City ).


This makes no sense:
Arsenal: USA 65%, Russa 15%, Iran 15%
Aston Villa: USA 100%
Burnley:UK 100%
Chelsea: Russia 100%
Crystal Palace: UK 100%
Everton: UK 100%
Hull: Egypt 100%
Leicester: Thailand 100%
Liverpool: USA 100%
Manchester City: UAE 100%
Manchester United: USA 100%
Newcastle: UK 100%
QPR: Malaysia 66%,India 33%
Southampton: Swiss 100%
Stoke City: UK 100%
Sunderland: USA 100%
Swansea City: 100% UK (Welsh)
Tottenham: 100% UK
West Brom: 100% UK
West Ham: 90% UK, 10% Iceland

Only the clubs in bold are majority from the UK, and this doesn't even begin to deal with the fact that majority foreign owned teams can and have fielded a completely foreign team. The majority of a team like Manchester United or Liverpool fans probably aren;t English either.

Me, I go to more Dulwich Hamlet games than Grimsby, but I wouldn't say I support them.

Don't like Leeds, because the year they went into the old First Division, when Don Revie was manager, we played them and not one player would give me an autograph, where'as all Northhampton players signed, the same year and they also went up.
Don't like West Ham because of the Tevez affair. Don't like Portmouth for being the only Premiership Club to refuse to help us and the Championship teams after the crash of the TV deal.
Also don't like Leicester as they went into administration, paid something like 20p in the pound, maybe less to their debtors and 6 weeks later, still had all their expensive players and started the new season in the "Crisp Bowl".
I do like any of the other teams, when they play well though, Man U included.

Allam at Hull is a British citizen so they are a British-owned club as well. Egyptian-born, but he's lived here for almost 50 years and raised his family here.

Harry redknapps dog


In a neat little town they all call Grimsby
Apprentice to a tradeI was bound
And many's an hour's sweet happiness
Have I spent in this neat little town.

A sad misfortune came over me
Which caused me to stray from the land
Far away from my friends and relations
Never Betrayed by the black and white band.

Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black and white band.
