Quoted from Garth


Would be nice if you could just name one or at least their initials


Agree. And if there are THAT many, surely a consortium would come together and buy the club!!


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.

But would they absolve the club's debt AND invest?

Can I have some of those happy pills (if they are legal) you were offering earlier on in the season and maybe have a drive of your Aston Martin because I am not happy with how things are currently looking and need cheering up.

People have gone over this multiple times.  

Why should an individual or consortium have to hand over £3m to cover the debt accrued by JF's total mismanagement of the club and financial incompetence?

Why should they? Because JF wants them to

Why would they? Because they've either got money to burn or they are so fed up with the above.

Quoted from The Old Codger
If you do ever pass this way, I can assure that the levels of frustration amongst the BP faithful are as high as I've ever known. I sat in an area that is not my normal area last night and to me the most damning quote I heard was 'We've stopped looking like a League club in the Conference, we look like we'll be here forever'.

Two things that struck me from that were, one, that it hit the nail on the head and two, that a new stadium is pointless. Performances like that are not a new phenomenon - many games last season relied on hit and hope to LJL and hope that we get lucky. It wasn't that we didn't know the opposition either. We all know that Clayton has the turning circle of a multi thousand ton oil tanker yet we never exploited it.

It was my first game of the season last night but those around me said we'd only really performed against Alfreton and Chester. Well sorry, if you want to get of this league, games against Southport, Nuneaton and Dover are 'must-win' - nothing less. The sort of games that were a given for the likes of Luton last season, Mansfield the season previous etc.

What does the manager do at half-time? I know it's a leading question but everyone around me could see that it needed a change, system or personnel or both.

My question to you is this : Do you really believe that Paul Hurst WILL take GTFC back to the league? I don't need to add my opinion, that's clear but there are a large number of fans, full-time/part-time/stay-aways who are getting mighty fed up with the sort of intransigent crap that was served up last night. No-one said promotion back to the league would be easy but it's looking further away than ever, especially with a squad that won't be here in 12 months time, and that's a pretty unpalatable truth.


In principle, I don't disagree with what you have said here, but you certainly have a lot to say for yourself and have done for many weeks for someone who not seen the team play this season until last night.

I've been watching Town for 45 years and have been a season-ticket holder when finances and other commitments allow. I prefer to play golf on a Saturday in the summer and watch Town at night/in the winter - not that I have to justify my right to have an opinion. Is that alright with you?

When you read how we have played against Dover, Nuneaton and now Southport , teams we should beat at home  if we want promotion,

You do not have to attend a game to know , it was not good enough.

We are all passionate about the Mariners but let's not take our frustrations out on each other, it's others that aren't delivering the type of performances this club deserves, not the fans.


I wouldn't say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one.
