I never want to see town lose but pray to god we get knocked out by gateshead in this next round and solely concentrate on the league. Its tinpot money and hasn't majority helped us in the past has it? I kind of get this feeling that its hurst vs the fans again, he knows its vital we go up and the fans no its vital we do too and avoid any slip ups like the last time we went on a huge run to the final and messed up the play offs, but yet he is adamant we win the trophy.

I used to think in hursty we trust but right now I haven't got the trust in no-one at gtfc and if we don't go up, I shall revert to watching Cleethorpes Town full-time instead.

This tin pot cup is our level now unlike the side we beat at Wembley in 98 who are up at the top of the Championship and playing Liverpool in the league cup tonight.
Just Wondering why the massive  difference between the fortunes of both clubs over that time.


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.

What a can of worms that could bring up . My own view is  , well , bad decisions at the highest level  , or decisions that appeared right at the time but failed miserably .  Or just really bad luck , take your pick .

Just out of interest who or what does 'One Love' refer to? Cleethorpes Town?

Yeah it was, many times.

Our major shareholder said that the debts we had were to him and the taxman. We would still have to pay the entire tax bill and for him to enter administration would mean that the debt to him would be taken from asset stripping the club, which he wasn't prepared to do. Going into administration would have saved us nothing in real terms, merely lost the clubs assets and him a significant percentage of his investment, which he has stated many times is the much maligned "benign debt" (I think this is correct from my recollection of the statements he has made over the years. Correct me if there are other things I have misinterpreted or are plain wrong...)

If Bournemouth didn't have some Russian investor come in a few years back , it's highly likely they'd be playing in the southern league now instead of playing the scousers tonight .
