Just an idea.

With there being themes at away games and seeing as each game from now on are like cup finals, we could do with something to get the party / cup final atmosphere at Blundell park.

Scarfs being swung around in the air in all the stands would look pretty good.

I think this could make the club some money too, with the sales of scarfs.

Grimsby V Eastleigh is the next home game, Saturday 21st March. I know it's 2 away, but this gives us time to promote it.

If the 'scarfs at the park' idea is a bad one, then lets hear a better one, and get BP rocking.

I know its been done plenty of times at other clubs, but I think it would be great.

A basic black & white scarf - cheap to buy, can be used again, looks affective when in full swing mode! + will certainly create a positive atmosphere.

It a winner!!

Some of us older fans have probably got a rattle stashed away somewhere as well! It could be a retro/vintage theme for BP.

We can try all we like but we will never get the atmosphere and the feeling of an away game at BP.

Get unreserved seating in Osmond for Town fans to generate atmosphere on top of the scarf idea.

I LOVE the idea of a Retro theme at BP as it shouldn't have the require people buying loads of new stuff if they didn't want to (though it would be good to shift a few hundred bar scarves) and it's something the club can really market well using things like the old Bygones footage we had on here from earlier in the week.  The club could also tie it in with the town's fishing heritage and release some old pictures to get people thinking.

There's a huge trend at the moment for dressing up in period costume or themed outfits for events with things like Secret Cinema, Forties re-enactment clubs and 80s themed weekends, so it could be something that gets people excited.

Just a few ideas:

-  Rattles
-  Bar scarves
-  False moustaches
-  Big baggy flat caps
-  Banners made from bedsheets ("GTFC are Ace" or other such 70s type lingo)
-  Brass band on the pitch
-  Bog-roll streamers
-  Ticker tape
-  Replace the goal nets with with super-heavy fine-gauge black fishing net and old-style triangle stanchions for the game.
-  Play old music for the day
-  Up the Mariners sing-a-long
-  Old footage on the big screen

I'm getting carried away here on a dull Sunday afternoon if you hadn't noticed....

Potentially one of the best ideas yet but it would require a lot of promoting to get the effect that we'd like to see. Just can't see everybody doing it!
