It seems to me that a lot of Town fans are not bothered about having a new stadium and some feel that there is not much point in relocating whilst we are in the conference league. We will get out of this crap league one day and it would be nice to have a modern stadium waiting for us. Although 6,500 fans have signed the for petition so far, more than 3,000 of the De Freitas brigade have signed a petition against the new stadium. That is embarrassing IMHO. We took 30,000 fans to wembley on 3 occasions and 30,000 people have signed a petition against the new leisure centre on the Willows. So why haven't our fans signed the Peaks Parkway petition? Why do our fans let the nimbys have their say on the subject in the paper and nobody challenges or argues with them?

You've convinced me, where do I sign?

It's a shame that more haven't put their name to it but there's a long way to go yet.

Apathy is the word, def;-  lack of interest or concern. Probably fuelled by 20+ yrs of broken promises, inactivity and ultimately hollow statements. The campaign being featured now in the telegraph doesnt give any real solid tangeable details to grasp onto and give hope it will actually happen... in effect.....please sign our petition to support something that we cant reveal exactly what it might be yet.....lets see some real, definate confirmed details and i am sure the petition numbers will rise

This is from the Telegraph web-site.

WE DO NOT WANT A NEW STADIUM AND CERTAINLY NOT IN TOWN OR ON A GREENBELT!!!! When will Fenty get it through his thick Skull??? SOMEONE PLEASE get the Petition started through Change.org against this stadium being built!!! You've got my signature! This town is being turned into a Supermarket infested concrete jungle.

I am sure that members of NELC read what these idiots have to say and take it on board. Why can't we get more of our fans on there, telling the Nimbys and the Councillors our thoughts?

Most fans have become indifferent after years and years of nothing concrete happening. Now there is a five year plan to add to all the other years that have passed with no end in site. The land hasn't even been procured yet, no plans drawn and nowt to get excited about. Add in boring conference footy and fans are just not feeling it.

I know of a few who now go and watch Hull, more's the pity.

More fool them then Ginny. Football isn't about picking and choosing which team to watch. It should be down to the heart over ruling the head. Watching 2 teams I don't care about.........sorry, that's not for me


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.
