I saw my first Mariners game in 1972, and I can honestly say that I've never been more apprehensive or nervous about a game than I am about Sunday. For me this is the biggest game in our history. Bigger than a couple of cup games in the 30's, bigger than a play-off final to move up a league within the leagues and bigger than that infamous day at Burton as even if we had won we'd have been relegated. So lets hope the boys do us all proud and they'll all be bloody legends. Losing is not an option.

This Town Knows!

UTM. GTID.

It is the biggest game in our history.  The outcome will impact on this club for many years to come. A club with our long, proud history and traditions needs to get back back into the Football League.  Now is the best time.

I had just quoted the title of this thread to a guy at work 15 minutes ago, (he's not bothered as I don't live in GY) and I was wondering the same.

Been watching Town since 1966 and there have been many big games but this is probably the most important.

It is certainly the most important game in our history. When you put a Conference play off final against two FA Cup semi finals I don't think you can even compare them for size though - without wanting to belittle the magnitude of Sunday's match in the slightest.

Of course you can. The outcome of the FA Cup semi finals wouldn't have had such a huge bearing on our existence as a football club. You've got to ask for how much longer we can afford to go on losing the sort of money we do in the conference.

It certainly is the biggest game in our history,

Its a one off game that can ( will )  put us back in the football league,

The only other time we were relegated to non league,

We went straight back up as champions,

As Bristol Rovers will find out, it is not easy getting straight back up,

Five years is the norm now and we have done our five years.

I believe it is, this is about the future of GTFC. All the other games have been and gone, history, and although maybe great memories for those who were there, this is the deciding match that could either provide us with more hurt, or glory again. If / when we win, it would / will be the first time we've won something of any real meaning since 1998 (17 years ago).

So is this the 'biggest' game in our history? Yes, it probably is. It is in my opinion.

Yep, the anxiety is really kicking in now (and threads like this do not help  ).
