Quoted from Stevie Saunders


As previous, I get no pleasure from defeat
Really?

Yet I see none
Not strictly true - two play off spots and a Wembley final

A reduced budget yet still 3000 loyal fans propping up a club with over 3 million debt, benign or otherwise.
Remarkable isn't it that these loyal fans support their club so passionately and GTFC hasn’t gone the way of Darlington, Rushden etc despite not being able to attract investment and still remaining remarkably competitive


I want us to win every game and every defeat means an increased likelihood of staying in this league. Play off spots mean nothing if they don't result in promotion and the Wembley final is a final that wouldn't be available if we weren't in the Bananarama league.

Also, it's remarkable that Darlington and Rushden always get mentioned whilst other clubs that haven risen from the ashes (Rotherham, Luton, Oxford and others) don't. Truth is that nobody knows what would have happened if we had gone into administration.

I do listen win lose or draw.
It would be good if the Trust guys start listening and putting forward the concerns of the majority of the fans.  
It may be that I dont get in or around the Directors box every game that I don't hear a good word to be said about Hurst
Hurst will never get this club promoted.

Send me some lines for the typo  


I can only assume you have me mixed up with someone else. I go nowhere near the Directors box. As for your views being the views of "the majority of fans" it is questionable whether those views are shared by a majority of posters on here-never mind the fan base as a whole.


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

Quoted from TAGG

Head in sand or up somewhere else if you think "most fans still have faith in the manager"
Look at the polls on her and try listening to the fans.
On the way out the ground & in the pub after Saturdays game not one voice did I hear in his support in fact most wanted him out.


Your view doesn't reflect that of the majority of the fans that I know - most of whom are reasonable and realistic about where we are and what PH is doing.

To be fed up with Town's plummet down the Leagues is common to all fans, and to be concerned about us turning it all round again is a universal feature of being a Town fan. Having accepted that shared starting point, constant moaning doesn't strike me as being insightful, helpful or supportive.

Personally, I try to enjoy each game as it comes, and get behind the team. Without a credible "regime change" plan, relentless complaining doesn't help the team, the club, or anyone.

Wake up at the back!

Yes, because as fans, supporting the team on the pitch is all we have control over.

We don't pick the team, we don't attend training, we don't buy players.

As fans, all we can do is turn up, spend £18 and support the team, who incidentally often comment on how the support can and does make a difference.

Relentless acceptance of mediocrity doesn't help.  


In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

Propping up mediocrity and the debt that no-one wants.

Mediocre? Yes
Propping up debt? Yes
But what the hell can you do about it other than stop going which I have no intention of doing
I've been 'married' to Grimsby Town for over 30 years and, for better for worse, you don't walk out on your 'spouse' when the going gets tough

What about if you feel that spouse has so much potential but keeps leading you a merry dance ?

You want a divorce but cant say goodbye..
