Quoted from geir
I agree with all the praise from people here! The Fishy is really special - one of the best forums around for any team.
Comparing this forum with the forum for my hometown club Rosenborg is not difficult, I would say that there may be longer threads on that other forum but due to the excellent and sometimes humourous posts on this forum - the Fishy is winning my attention every time. There is a reason why I am on that other forum once every year, and here almost every day.
This forum is a goldmine for a fan and I think the club may underestimate the positive value it has. Besides, when travelling to England to watch Grimsby, the people on this forum has been very helpful in replying to some of my silly questions and even in offering their assistance towards getting tickets and so on. Much appreciated!
Unfortunately, when contacting certain people in official positions at the club, I have experienced no reply at all. And before someone asks: NO - this has nothing to do with John Fenty. Actually, he sent me a very nice mail, without me asking for it a couple of years ago, so I have no reason to blame him whatsoever. He is an asset for this club and should be treated as such. Criticism is good, but only when it is fair.
Going back to my mail: maybe my questions or proposals were seen as irrelevant, but I still expect an answer. So if more people than me experiences this; then we go to the Fishy to get our answers or discuss our proposals. Sometimes it ends up with "Operation Promotion" and other helpful things for the club.
I hope Bignot, who seems to be very much aware of the fans, will be told that he should take a look around here. In my opinion he should welcome such passionate fans more than he is scared off. And I think he would like the banter around here most of the time.

Thank you for inviting me in and thank you to this forum for all the good times.
May this forum rule Britannia for decades to come!

Up the Mariners!


The sooner we are out of Europe and can ban European community posters writing sensible, happy posts like this the better

It's quite heavy of people who criticise people's opinion when they don't have a constructive alternative. There are some quite arrogant keyboard warriors. Which is a shame for those who want to discuss their club


There are certainly some "popular trends" on here and going against popular opinion is not always welcomed by some.

One thing I notice is there are a lot of exiles like me who find the Fishy a reminder of our home town club. When I was a student my mother used to send me Matt's exploits in the Saturday Telegraph and that was the best we could do in those days. There was no interaction and no way even to even put a point of view because the Telewag didn't do sports letters.

So personally I am very grateful for the Fishy and, like most things Fishy, I am happy to take it with a pinch of salt where necessary.

i love posting on here and reading the various debates, think theres some excellent posters and some not so good ones.. but all at the end of the day we love GTFC. Fishy means town is 24/7 not just a saturday afternoon

Havent met anyone off this site bar one gentleman who sits behind me at the games who is a genuine friendly bloke and we often start our discussions talking about this site

i also find it fascinating reading the thoughts of the older posters who talk about years gone by with such fondness for our club

I regularly go on other club's forums,usually the opposition before and after we play them.  One thing comes instantly to mind, they're all very similar,full of adverts,and, I assume ,a franchised format.Compared to The Fishy they are often difficult to find the thread you are looking for. I think The Fishy is a,one off,and a unique excellent forum.


I agree. What I've seen of other forums (not that many to be honest) is that the format is often messy and full of distracting adverts and poor background colour. The Fishy is pretty clear and easy to read. Well done to Rob for that.

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.

Whilst it's got its share of people I disagree with and daft comments and its irritations, I wouldn't change the Fishy. I don't do Twitter bar lurking at the odd post so can't comment. Same with Facebook.

I've noticed a certain sniffiness on the Codalmighty and the Codpod about the Fishy. Whilst I like both of them, when they look down their noses at the Fishy it makes me realise why people get drunk off with 'student types' who are up themselves banging on about people who are 'meta-football' and generally 'doing it wrong'.

So more power to the Fishy. Warts and all.

Yeah credit to Rob, i often find other forums far less readable.  The fishy does seem to over-react to each individual result but i guess that is pretty natural, i think its a great website and i really enjoy reading it, its intersting but it also makes me laugh out loud sometimes - thanks everyone for making it what it is!
