We need several of these videos.

This one does a fairly good job on saying why we need a new stadium, but we need others focusing on what benefits a new stadium will bring*, and on why Peaks Parkway is the best site, and one on how the objections of local residents can be overcome (rather than just dismissing them as NIMBYism). And they need to be available through several different channels (beyond the club site and YouTube).

As it stands this one is good at preaching to the converted but I can't see many neutrals spending 18 plus minutes watching it let alone antis.

* Dave Roberts was the only one in my opinion (and maybe Graham Rodger(s)   ) who really touched on this. Some more specific examples would be good.

Bit of a missed opportunity too by not actually taking the camera around the facilities behind the scenes at BP.  They really are shocking and I bet not a lot of people realise this.

Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Cannot believe that bloke standing upright on top of the UF stand. Probably a strong breeze blowing as well.

Maybe he was a Town fan who thought about jumping as he had insight into our league position in 30 years time?  

I believe that when the Barratt Stand was demolished, they found that there were no foundations.  It stood upright only supported by its own weight.  No wonder it rocked when full. (It would not have passed pass a Health and Safety check then, never mind now).

Any empty units in Freshney? Could be an idea to set up shop (not Lenny) in there, selling the idea to the people of the area.

The relocation is for the benefit of the entire community. Non-football fans must be made aware of the benefits it will bring, namely jobs, recreation and education. It's not just about Grimsby Town, it's about Grimsby, the Town.
