My point is that you don't have to go to every game to have an opinion about the team you've supported since you were 5. I love GTFC and have done for longer than I care to remember.

That's why a night like las night hurts so much.

I don't think it is really accurate to compare last night's result to those against Nuneaton and Dover because we did at least do something in those two games.

For the Nuneaton and Dover games we had no wingers available at all and this badly affected us as they both 'parked the bus'. Despite this, we still missed a few good chances which would have won us the games (though some shocking defending at the death against Dover almost led to a defeat). Disappointing performances, but nothing more than that.

Last night was an entirely different kettle of fish as we had the attacking players available but were simply outplayed following a disastrous performance by pretty much the whole team. Still shouldn't have lost really as Southport didn't create too many chances but it was a really sloppy goal to concede.

Ultimately, we've taken just 2 points from those 3 games when it could/should really have been 7 points. Things would be looking a lot better with another 5 points on the board.

Whatever happens (and I don't think Hurst will go during the next month or two), we've got to start grinding results out in the home games. We're actually not too bad in away games but we just can't afford to drop so many points at home.

We need sterling performances at home and bury the lesser teams, otherwise support will drop to Lincoln levels and then we are stuck with ever decreasing budgets in this league.


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

We still could be this years Luton,

They had a poor start but I do not think they had lost 4 games in 13.

Do figures actually back this up?

Home gates this season in order, including away fans:

Aug
3710
3548
3619

Sep
3785
3300
3245
3353

Gates dipped in September last year where we had home gates of:

2503
3105

There have only been 2 home defeats so far.

Gates are down a bit on last year I think but it's hardly that bad as some would make out. We drew away today which I know was disappointing but we went up two places in the league. Are hundreds of people not going to go who would otherwise have done as a result?
