I've had so many people coming up to me in Devon/Somerset the past 2-3 days, messaging me, tagging me in things on facebook and saying how "amazing" our fans are. Well done to everyone for keeping the faith and really getting behind the team. Although it's gutting because I can't be there it's great to see these pictures and videos!

I have to say that I'm glad I made the trip over. It is safely one of the best away days I've been to following too. Easily in my top 3 three since we've been in the Conference (Lincoln 1-4 Grimsby at the Bank and Cambridge 0-1 Town at The Abbey would complete that set, in case you're interested). The atmosphere was excellent. People singing from well before kick off, inflatables everywhere and a stellar performance to top it off. I think you could see how much affect it had on the squad too because after the third goal nearly every player came down to the front of the stand to celebrate with their team mates and the fans. Let's hope it kicks on to what we all want.

Credit must go to Barnet and their stewards. They handled the party excellently even when people got a bit over zealous at the end. It was just a great away day it was so much fun it was hard to give 100% concentration to what was going on on the pitch. What a great set up that is down there too. I went in their bar afterwards with my Barnet supporting mate. Good atmosphere in there, reasonably priced booze (for London) and TVs everywhere to catch the results and tea-time game. Their players and staff were in and out too. I didn't see them actually interacting with any fans but you'd have to assume they do if required (by an autograph hunter, for example) as the didn't seem to bothered about passing through. It was nice to see that the proximity between fans and players can exist harmoniously. We showed it in the stand and on the pitch, they showed what could happen in the bar afterwards. Great day of Conference football all round.

All aboard the promotion train to League 2!! #choochoo

Same here luke. Brizzle rovers and Cheltenham fans and, to the 2 lads I know that support Fgr, their fans are totally with us and ashamed about what happened that day



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

The news is getting around Suffolk as well,

My granddaughter and her fellow plus my other granddaughters fellow have been spreading the word,

They have never seen anything like the Town fans when we are in full voice.

The most annoying thing is the Premiership fans at work, you tell them about your weekend and how good of an away day it was, your still proper buzzing from it all and show them the pics and vids and they just look at you gone out, , ,they just dont get it!

Oh and they see the scoreline on Sky Sports and say 'you was lucky' or something on them lines.

Ah well, , much rather be a Town fan then an Arsenal , Chelski, Liverpool, Moan Utd , etc any day of the year.

Good to see we are getting mentioned elsewhere, I actually tried calling 606 for the first time ever after the game as I was so buzzing.  Naturally a bit foolish as they wanted to discuss whether LVG was doing a good job or not.      

Premiership fans very rarely seem to understand how following a club can mean so much as despite the huge numbers who attend games, the majority of premiership 'fans' are actually people who never go to games anyway.  I think those that do actually go to games that I meet do completely understand, espically if they are a fan of a team such as Southampton, West Brom or some other team who are not a constant feature of that 'elite'

Classic buffer face, they are waiting for their heart to send a message to the brain but that vacuum where their soul used to be, prevents that message from getting there, hence the buffer face, which is also proof that glory hunters have no soul.


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.
