Just for fun while it's a bit quiet.

Let's suppose your ship came in this week and the biggest Euromillions jackpot ever was all yours to play with. You can do as you have always dreamed and own the club you have supported and loved since being an infant. What would you do?

Apart from hot Bovril and better toilets, how would you take the club forward?
Where would you locate a new ground? Or would you re-vamp the BP you have cherished all these years?
Is there a manager you would entice to Grimsby?
Are there players you think could get the club straight out of the Conference and up the leagues?
What would be your realistic ambition for the club?

I'd give Fenty 30 million and tell him to get us into the football league and get this stadium built.

But don't pick the next manager...

I would do a MK Dons,

I would transfer GTFC to Bury St Edmunds ( Bury Town )

I would build the new stadium in the field next to my garden.

Only Joking,

I would give Fenty £40 million to get us back up the leagues and for the new stadium at Peakes Parkway.

Are you mad? If I put 30 million in I'd want to be running the show myself.

Make JF an offer for his shares/debt.

Clear every penny of other borrowing.

Talk to Paul Fletcher( former CEO of Burnley & Bolton) and one of the most knowledgable people I know about football and football clubs. Taking advice on board I would pay top dollar for the best, forward thinking exec I could find.

Push on with the stadium

Incentivise fans over pricing, I.e. Sell 4000 season tickets at one price & 5000 season tickets @ a lesser price.

Every 5 yr old in the area to get a free Town goody bag contains something like a shirt or track suit top but various smaller items. Set up reward schemes for them to attend with their family.

Everything would be geared towards  developing a real community club

Huge investment in the academy, including facilities, residential hostel for youth team. Attract the best local kids and the best youngsters released from Prem clubs. Look into the Southampton model for youth set up

Training ground revamp with emphasis on sports science, strength and conditioning coaches

Enough money provided to be top budget in the league but again more would be provided if the fans show their commitment with season tickets shirt sales etc.

No involvement in what players we sign as that isthe managers job!

All good fun but I will never win the lottery

Big Chris has thought about this before! I would invest the money but not be involved day to day and pay someone to run it for me.
New ground def and be called Kev Moore Park with former player names for stands/ corporate bit.
