Sad to say but that team would urine all over our current squad.

We're in some sort of time trap vortex. Perhaps Stephen Hawking could sort us out.

It's frightening when you look at that team on paper, which I think was average at best, and the amount of goals in it (19 goals from those midfielders alone), compared to what we've got now!

God help us


In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

What I'd give to have some of those players now, Newey, Fenton, Sgt Whittle, Bennett and Atkinson, Bolland, North.


Alan Shearer tackled by a blue peter presenter

Its taken 9 months for the board to see sense but finally Slade is out!!!!!!

I'd even take Hegarty over either Woolford or Kelly.
