Maybe not this season now, but how good would a retro Blundell Park be? I'm sure someone did it earlier in the year? Could try and tie it in with a club birthday or whatever.
Pick an era and the club could totally get on board with it. Vintage food/programmes/beer/even ticket prices! Get people to come in there old town shirts.. Maybe even bring out a special edition kit to wear for a one off game. As an 18 year old I have fondly listened to many a stream about a full Blundell Park in the 50s/60s/70s/80s but well before my time period sadly... Would be amazing to even witness a small part of it. .
Could even organise a scrap for after the game... Bring back the good old days eh?

Personally I don't see why this can't be put into action for every game home game that remains. The club could maybe put an offer on that see's everyone turning up with a scarf, then the fans just have to remember them each game. Bit of scarf waving and a sea of black and white might create a more positive home atmosphere for the remaining games. It's a great idea whoever thought of it. Simple, cost effective and visually pleasing.

We need something like West Ham, every home game the atmosphere is electric at the beginning because they have a routine, a song and bubbles etc. I know it's not as realistic and easy as that but we could try something.

Hull city have a count down that nearly the whole
Ground joins in before holding their scarves up signing 'city till we die' or something, the guy with the mic individually gets each stand cheering etc just before kick off. Something needs to be done to get everyone going but it'll need a big promotion from grimsby.

I remember Dave Boylen doing that before kick off when we were battling relegation from the Championship.

So do I and I'd pay cash for him not to do it again!

I've pushed it all over twitter and Facebook, it's been a big hit with fans so far. See no reason why this won't happen.

Although there has been a lot of interest in this so far, I think once the Chester game is out the way, interest will grow even further, especially if we can beat Chester (I know we can, come on town!). I think if/when we beat Chester, we could see around 4,000 in attendance V Eastleigh.

I've messaged 2 other fan pages (Grimsby Mariners and Grimsby Till I Die), one (Grimsby Mariners) has replied and is helping promote it. Hoping 'Grimsby Till I Die' will too.

Spotted Grimsby have also said they'd promote it. I'm hoping the club, trust and telegraph get involved too.

I've encouraged some fans to put scarves in cars (one sent photos with scarves draped over his motor bikes, which inspired another to wrap a scarf around his push bike lol). On 'GTFC's black and white army' Facebook page, I'm going to encourage more to put scarves in their cars and send in photos under the tittle 'Scarves in car for scarves at the park' just for fun and obviously to promote 'scarves at the park'.
