It's like when a band gets popular and people say, i liked them when no-one else had heard of them. Some people just like to "be different" to the crowd and think they are cool because of it. Anything that's popular gets slated by some.

This forum infuriates me at times, but I've been here (and the fishcake) in one form or another since 1998. In fact, I remember asking someone if the 98 play off final was going to be on Sky as I couldn't afford to get down there.

So, in summary - it's down to loyalty. And being scared of change. And new technology. And going outside.

Quoted from grimsby pete


Some do make me laugh though

ie. Dicko's  version of Henderson's recall to United because Marcus threw him under bus for having a poor game.



He obviously misinterpreted recent news headlines, about young players being under certain coaches.  

Such as the Crewe bus.

Apart from looking at other L2 teams usually after we have played them I only go on the Fishy.

It does feel like many posters take time to think about what they write which again is not evident with other clubs boards I have seen.

I reckon we have a good cross section of posters on here which is good, red cross and green tick thing needs scrapping though as it adds nothing.

Out of bitterness, were they declined membership after the extreme vetting process?

They'll never reach the dizzy heights of whisky drinker or vodka drinker.

One of the best fans forums there is for me. You obviously get the WUM's but you come to know who they are and take most things said with a pinch of salt but despite various other GTFC messageboards popping up over the years, there isn't one anywhere near as busy as this one and Rob deserve a lot of credit for that.

It's also good as certain posters seem to know things that are going to happen even before the club does.  

Long live The Fishy.

When I joined The Fishy the first thread I clicked on was about the relative merits of Werthers toffees started by the late,great Icey. There were characters like Maccabilk who are much missed IMO but the bottom line is that The Fishy has always looked after its own. Bike to the Bank started on here. Seemingly the whole site rallied round one night to help a fellow fishyite who was experiencing dark times and as a direct result of posting on here I've met people that I'm proud to call friends.
Echo what Les says. Long Live The Fishy..


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

The embryonic idea of Operation Promotion was from here as well.

I was in the ticket office last week getting my Luton tickets and saw MB in the office, i asked him if he had any news ahead of the game and he started to engage when the rest of the office piped up " it will end up on the fishy, say nothing...we dont like the fishy !! "  MB then walked off !!!

Didn't the idea for Operation Promotion germinate on this here board? If nothing else, that is a great achievement.

Edit- Moosey beat me to it.

You must be twice as sensible as me, then Pete!  

Quoted from grimsby pete


I think the older posters on here are the sensible ones
