Hi,
Firstly, big thank you to Rob for accepting me on this forum.
Secondly, Respect to all the Grimsby fans I met in The Schooner pre match last Saturday. Different class.
Wanted to wish you all the best for the rest of the season.

Indeed welcome.  Had massive respect for your fans for 2 reasons!

1) Most of you stayed to the bitter end of that match, respect indeed.  

2) To support a club like Gateshead when you are stuck between 2 massive clubs is deserving of even more.

In fact last season after the playoffs what embittered me most was Newcastle fans on the pitch taunting us when it wasn't even their club, they had no right!  You guys did to an extent (never really like taunting fans anyway beyond good bits of banter) but the Gateshead fans I met on that occasion (the ones wearing gateshead not Newcastle shirts) were as embarrassed by them as I was by our fans who kicked off.

Still you bounced back well and our still above us in the league atm.  hopefully not for long!

Thanks for that.
GM has said that he wants to bring up to 4 players in by Monday, but no names yet. Don't suppose you would let us have Thomas and Disley?
Seeing Newcastle tops at Gateshead makes my p*** boil! because apart from anything else! it is usually them that causes any bother. They jumped on the bandwagon at the end of last season, and I thought it was an embarrassment to Newcastle and disrespectful to Gateshead to wear Newcastle tops at Wembley. We had earned that visit, not them.
You may have noticed I am not a big skunks fan. Brought up in Manchester watching MU, but saw the light in 2005 and started watching The Heed. Never missed all the overpaid prima donnas, and have made a lot of friends in the non league community.
Regards to all

Neither Thomas or Disley are currently in our starting 11.  This is for different reasons. We have 11 players who are considered better!

You can have Thomas on a month's loan if you want.

There's the thing, we haven't.
By the way, like to wish Carl all the best at Grimsby. Am unable to find one Gateshead fan who wasn't surprised by his departure.

I thought Gateshead looked a good footballing side, They will be near the top by the end of the season imo (just behind us)  


Grimsby and proud!

I have to add a big well done to those Gateshead fans that stayed in their stand, even after most of the Town fans have left the visitors section, to applaud the Town players off the pitch and down the tunnel, nice to see the Town players also applaud the Gateshead fans.

I suspect Thomas would be in the starting XI if he wasn't injured!
