When players are considering a transfer or loan period, I wonder if they research fans forums and message boards to get a feel of the current atmosphere and feel for the club?

“Grimsby want me, let’s have a little look at what their fans are saying about the place right now”


If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,

I’d guess that in the world of pro football most players in other clubs would know or know someone who knew someone who was at a the club they were thinking of joining and be able to get the lowdown . Unfortunately.

Yes they probably do.

I also hope they would have heard of the terrific away following we have infact probably one of the best in league football and also the way we donated our own money for Paul Hurst, the thousands we took to Wembley in non league football and the backing our players do get when they give our there best for 90 minutes.

It's just a shame that right here right now we have a manager way way past his sell by date , no doubt we have a bigger problem too but let's leave that for now .

Let's just hope they don't look up the management/boards method of 'interacting' with the fans and local media on Youtube.
Just watch that video, all you potential signings and investors, laying bare all of the inadequacies and general weirdness of the current board and management.

The Town fans when they are behind the team are as good as any and in the lower leagues quite exceptional.However because they are so passionate when it goes the other way you get what you see now. The problem here is GTFC have no feckin idea how to harness or galvanise the support but they find countless ways to infuriate, demonise and ultimately lose it!

Players normally only care about wages and location , are they enough and is it feasible to move x amount of miles away

I'd imagine if they looked up the fan forum on youtube that would tell them all they want to know about the club. Unfortunately.

They probably do, which makes you wonder what sort of impression they get when there’s a 97-page thread PINNED to the top of the “other board” where fans can chuck about phrases like “mongo wogchops” on page 1?

Of course, when a player claimed he’d been subjected to similar language away at Halifax one year, he was “making it all up”.
