Speaking to a fan of theirs before the game he informed us that the local council paid for upgrades to stadium. -Again just goes to show how our council are such a joke, no wonder Grimsby has become a such run down dead end place full of pessimism and despair. Our leaders just aren't forward thinking enough, ever.

I've always spoken of the greater atmosphere from older stands like the one town fan's were in at The Shay and The Osmond. When the roof goes up and comes back down it creates an awesome cauldron of sound as the decibels are bounced back downwards instead of being let away into the sky as is the case with all the upward sloping roves of all the new identi-kit stadiums around the country.

If Town could break the mould and really put some thought into the acoustics of a new stadium it would make a new home an intimidating place to come and could possibly help the team to several hundred more points (and a few promotions to boot maybe?) over the ensuing century.

An upward more open roof for the away fan's would be a nice crafty ploy, aye.

Quoted from Theimperialcoroner
The burger van was rubbish though. No pies, needed to be more on fire.


I remember the Burger van game in the 70s?
