All a bit dubious on Mansfield's part I think   -they would have been well aware of the international fixtures for this weekend and the likelihood of their players being called up.  Yet they send 1600 tickets for GTFC to sell in advance and then postpone after a week of sales.

I noticed that on the Mansfield Town website that there was no mention of tickets going on sale for their own supporters for this fixture.

I know that we are entitled to refunds but I suspect most Grimsby fans will hold on to their tickets until the rearranged date is announced.  All a bit fishy!!!

Pathetic this from Mansfield. It’s not flipping Premier League is it with star players depleting the squads.

Anyways they should get on with it just like the cricket and the egg chasers do

Quoted from Gaffer58


I believe cricket just carries on with there fixtures when test matches are on, tough if you have internationals missing, but it would give fringe players, even under 23's a chance.


Difference being that the England cricketers salaries are paid by the ECB.

They have form for this sort of thing. I remember in non-league we were due to play them between Xmas and New Year and they got the game called off on the morning claiming the pitch wasn't playable despite games at Chesterfield (Saltergate 15 miles away) and one of the Nottingham teams going ahead in decent conditions. There was some talk of them watering the pitch although that was never obviously substantiated.  The fact they were playing Liverpool in the cup the next weekend was a mere coincidence...


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

Their Crewe fixture was postponed for the same reason. Tail and dog comes to mind.

I think at this level only home nations players should count.

Also it will be a 7:30 kick off so it won't be shown on I follow now.


That wont be a problem as it will kick off at 7.45 and that will be shown on Ifollow.

It's the same rules for everybody and it's been 3 players for as long as I can remember.

Whilst it does seem a bit dubious with the timing, weren't the squads only announced at the end of last week? They can't appeal to call off a game before they know if the 3 players are missing or not.
