yep been there too


When I was a little boy
I asked my daddy what would i be
would I be United, would i be Leeds
Here's what he said to me

Oh Grimsby Grimsby
Whatever will be will be
You'll follow then faithfully
Oh Grimsby Grimsby

Tell me Mam me Mam
I dont want no tea no tea
I'm watching the Grimsby
Tell me Mam me mam

Quoted from Les Brechin

Yeah, it is. For some reason I was thinking that Wycombe had moved to another new ground.

They tried, but there's a town fan living there so it put the kibosh on it!

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.

19 on that list for me although two were watching Arsenal not Town! Highbury and Highfield Road. Loved watching town away  late 80s and through 90's, favourite away day was Plough Lane, despite result it was amazing atmosphere and build up. Buses from Peter Sheffield, Applebys GCT all traveling down A1 and service stations awash with Town Fans. Getting on Tube at Stanmore with basically the whole of Grimsby queuing up for what seemed ages to get in ground and Town fans outnumbering home fans and of course the inflatables!

Maine Road and that athletics stadium Brighton used to use before they moved to Falmer for me. Oh and I went to Bournemouth when the pitch faced the other way-does that count?

I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

Just been asked elsewhere about grounds that I've watched the Mariners at which are now defunct or don't host football anymore. I couldn't really believe how many there were. 40 lost football grounds!

Ayresome Park, Baseball Ground, Belle Vue, Boothferry Park, Burnden Park, Christie Park, Church Road, Don Valley, Elm Park, Feethams, Fellows Park, Filbert St, Gay Meadow, Highbury, Highfield Road, Layer Rd, Leeds Rd, Millmoor, Nene Park, Odsal Stadium, Plough Lane, Rockingham Road, Roker Park, Saltergate, Sealand Road, Springfield Park, Spytty Park,The County Ground (Northampton), The Darlington Arena, The Den, The Goldstone Ground, The Manor Ground, The McCain Stadium, The National Hockey Stadium, The Old Show Ground, The Victoria Ground, Underhill, Vetch Field, Watling Street, and Wembley (Old).

Been to 35 of those. Didn't make Odsal, Fellows Park, Sealand Road, Goldstone Ground or Watling Street due to work

Not as many as I thought: about 18 plus Maine Road. My mind is slowly going, so I can't even remember where I've been in the morning, let alone 40 years ago!

20 plus Maine Road. Quite shocking really to see how many have gone away.

Haven't made many of the new ones since moving north but can include Park Avenue, home of Bradford Park Avenue up until 1973. Proper ground, built by Leitch.

No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.
