Tonights attendance 2535.
I don't know for sure but if there are 2000 season ticket holders and 35 away fans that leaves 500 through the gates.
If that's not a good enough reason for a change of direction (manager) Fenty I don't know what is.


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.

800 @ £10 per head is  £8,000 we have lost in one game,

How longer will Fenty allow this to happen. ?

This is ultimately what will do for Hurst, that's about £10k less in the coffers than last week, you can get a lot of striker for £10000 a week.


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!!!!!!!!!

Most of the missing fans would have been paying £16 or £18 last night.

We had 3700 for the first couple of games, so a drop of 1200 since the start of the season.

I know 2 people who went last night with free tickets given to them by disgruntled ST holders. They wouldn't have gone otherwise.

A Chinese defender


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.

Alternatively the board slash the budget next season to match whatever the attendance drops to. At the moment the budget is for a gate around 3500 but there is nothing to stop us setting one for 2000. We'd have to make people redundant and get lesser players. Ultimately the town of Grimsby gets the team it deserves.

Dont quite agree with that Rob. The budget in my eyes needs to be used effectively. Football is all about entertainment and 'Im afraid that we are not being entertained. It hurts fans when we are consistently poor and many people just do not wish to watch sub standard football as we are being served up with at the moment. I realise we are where we are but how low can we go. It is a worrying situation that I never thought I would have to witness in 50 yrs of watching the Mariners. I really want our fortunes to turn, but feel that the current regime cannot facilitate it. The result therefore is dwindling attendances.

Post has my full agreement, do you go to the pictures to watch a 90 minute boring film, could add in black and white to make it even more relevant, travelling a  round journey of over 80 miles? We may not always like the ending but we want entertainment whilst we are there and for the past ten months that has been sadly lacking.
