I find it crazy how we're still short of 767 sign ups to the new stadium petition. Does that mean the fans aren't that bothered or we don't really have that big a fan base to care? Surely we can notch up the 7000 signatures needed on the OS?

IMO this club desperately needs to relocate from BP. I just don't ever see it happening in the next ten years.

Sometimes you need to advertise better and actually put in leg work, I remember Cockers hand delivering a letter trying to get support, back in AB's first season when we were 4th from bottom in the old Division 4.


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

The club has 3000 - 3500 fans, ie people who actually bother to turn up and watch them play week in week out, "suffer" the surroundings and experience of B.P on a regular basis.  Bearing in mind not all of those may actually agree with the location of the ground for one reason or another then the fact we have acquired more than the average home gate is actually a suprise to me.
Selling the new ground as a community venture and community benefit to the wider audience is the key but details are still sketchy on what that would actually be, not everyone in the town is interested in a sports based facility...chicken and egg scenario in alot of ways but having a team playing at its lowest level in living memory for 4 years certainly doesnt help capture the towns imagination.

Maybe some supporters want us to stay at Blundell Park.

I'd be more than happy to see us back in either League 2 or even better League 1 playing at BP

If we ever get back to Championship level then maybe a new ground would help us out accommodating all of our new found and lapsed fans

We simply can't survive at BP without greater funding. This has to get the green light folkes. Apathy in the Town won't help. Please bang the drum and help this location move a reality for future generations to come.

I've signed it but to be honest what is the point?

Do we really trust the current administration to see it built and if they manage it for it not to be a massive member up?

So much focus has gone on a new ground with the current regime and there has been a complete lack of ambition on the pitch, if the money wasted on the new ground was spent on the team we would probably be a league team.

I think you have to look at why it hasn't happened, we can blame the council, the economy, nimbys and breeding birds but have a look at the stadia other teams have built in that time.

Look down the road at Scunny, they have a new ground in the pipeline and a chairman that clearly has some ambition, could you imagine town paying decent fees for players?

This club has been poorly run for so long with a complete lack of ambition and people expect the same administration to be able to successfully deliver a decent new ground.

There's still 24 clubs I didn't get around to posting on their club forums, I'll finish it off and see how many more signatures I can get...

AFC Wimbledon, Burton Albion  , Chester, Crawley Town, Dagenham & Redbridge, FC Halifax Town, Leicester City, Lincoln City  , Luton Town, Manchester City, Northampton Town, Nuneaton Town, Oldham Athletic, Port Vale, Rochdale, Scunthorpe United  , Stevenage, Swansea City, Tottenham Hotspur, Tranmere Rovers, Walsall, Welling United, Wigan Athletic, Woking, Wrexham, Wycombe Wanderers, Yeovil Town.

A lot of the premiership clubs have strict posting rules, such as cannot make your own post till replied to over 250 other peoples messages...
