I haven't seen that via any official medium. Seriously, if we can't tempt a player to leave Solihull to play for us we should give up.


We did last Tuesday.

I think, looney tunes, that there are ironically more opportunities for a club like Brentford to get a new ground. Even though Grimsby is half surrounded by countryside. (I'm assuming you're a Bees fan so forgive me if I'm telling you something you already know). Grimsby's new ground will depend on getting enough money for the site of their old ground, and plenty of money from any associated commercial development with the new ground. There is not that much demand for land in a place like Grimsby for building, so receipts for Blundell Park will not be that big, and there aren't as many willing partners for the new development as any London club would have.

I must say, we have had our fair share of Nimby arguments, including ones as bizarre as the ones Brentford faced from the Kew side of the bridge.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Got to say I was impressed with Dartfords ground on Saturday. A (much) larger version would be perfect. Especially with the option to walk around the ground, made for a better match day experience (to quote modern bolloxspeak, a version of newspeak if you like).


Batch, Crombie, Moore K, Wiggington, Cumming, Waters, Bonnyman, Ford, Emson, Drinkell, Whymark. Love you all, You are the reason I'm on here. You've had help from Todd, Handyside, Futcher P, Groves, Mendonca, Macca etc etc etc. Up The Mariners!!!!!!!!!

Knock all the high rise flats down, knock all freemo down, and build a new community stadium and new complex of shops, flats and housing there.

A mini Tottenham project.

Straight off the M180 still plus the railway is really close, no fathing about, get Grimsby Town to work alongside the Council, Shoreline, and developers, and help the whole area.

Imagine Freeman Street looking something like this!  That's what you call regeneration!

Erm, parking spaces for anyone?

London clubs such as Spurs, Arsenal et al don't need to consider much in the way of parking areas for fans visiting from both the local area and away as they are located right in the centre of the biggest (publicly-funded) transportation nexus in the country. How much of the Freeman Street/local area would need to be set aside for parking? Also, the A180 is the only road in and out of town so congestion before and after a match would be a real problem, especially in the summer months.

Not to mention the fact that Spurs (and London as a whole) has just a little bit more money to spend on things than Grimsby. Spurs have paid much more for a number of individual players than it would cost to buy our club lock, stock and barrel and build a new stadium somewhere, including the cost of the land!

Additionally, knocking down the high-rise flats, other flats in the surrounding area and many existing businesses down Freeman Street would displace how many people? To where? How many compulsory purchase orders required and who would pay for them? I know they plan to level the high-rise flats in any case, but it seems a poorly thought out idea to me, especially as there is pretty much no support for anything GTFC-related on the council.

. We either throw caution to the wind and go for something we ALL have been wanting for well over 50 years . Remember FA Would was willing to sell Cambridge Rd  in Grimsby for a new site . Or we stay and rebuild what we have . Yes problems with both but not submountable . It woud just stop this endless , are we aren't we will we  won't we .
It's almost a red herring detracting from the real problem whats going on with Town

Parking is hardly a major selling point of BP, anything would be better than what we have now

The current proposal would have traffic join the A180 just the other side of the flyover, just one junction down. Blundell Park itself is on the end of it. The Freemo site would probably be better as it would go straight on to the A180, and could have new traffic controls to help flow.

If you haven't seen the GET lately they are already talking about knocking down the high rise flats anyway. TBH I think building it there is better than the current idea. It has better transport links and, if thought out properly by the council (ok, stop laughing), could be tied in with rejuvenating freeman street.
