Lets cheer ourselves up and reflect on the good times of grimsby, all this doom and gloom is driving me mad at the minute.

I'll kick start it with this wonder strike from super jevons against liverpool, it was a toss up with this and dobbins screamer against newcastle but I'll never forget this goal.

Sadly, clips like these just seem like a different club.  Am I the only one, struggling to accept this utter rubbish served up every week?  I will not accept the view that last night for example was a good performance.  It is close to the Sunday league stuff I often go along to watch.  The main difference is that our professionals are a lot fitter, the game is faster and the majority of players are comfortable with the ball on either foot.


I remember being pelted with ice by the Norwich fans during the Milk Cup match, do you?

Sorry I understand your point but wallowing in nostalgia will not cure our ills, only complaining and abstinence by some from home games might

Best season was 1997-1998. I was gutted the season before to get relegated from the Championship and I never expected to get back at the first attempt because we were the smallest club in there by miles. Doing it in the way we did it as well was special. Younger supporters have few special memories, I count myself lucky that most of my twenties were spent with GTFC at their peak.

So why back a manager that is bringing us down to an all time low  


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.

I remember my Dad taking me to my first away game at Scunthorpe,

We won 3-1 of course  

Rafferty and Connor scored but not sure who got the third.

1950 something,

I was only 10 in 97-98 so I don't really remember much about those games (my most vivid memory of visiting Wembley in '98 involved my brother throwing up in the car on the way down followed up by hanging around on Kilburn High Street waiting for Woolworths to open so we could replace his vomit stained trousers). Town have been utter excrement (Slade season aside) ever since I started attending regularly. FOOTBALL IS THE BEST!

Just looked up the old records,

We beat Scunny at Scunny 3-1 in 1952 and 1958,

It must have been 1958 because I am sure I was more than 4 years old when I went.

Smallest club in the second division?
