This is our third season back in the Football League - 108 games plus a handful of cup games (that we've been entirely rubbish in).

There must have been at least one or two favourite moments in that time. Mine was Matt's injury-time winner v Notts County to confirm safety. I really didn't want our season to be decided at Forest Green of all places!

It's slim pickings but maybe I'm overlooking some obvious candidates...?

Winning 3-0 at Plymouth
Jamey Osborne's solo goal v Yeovil
Rose's winning penalty v Chesterfield

Any more?

The first game back in the league at home to Morecambe. BP was rocking, proper hairs on the back of the neck stuff as the players walked out the tunnel to the fish chant. Then Ben Davies’ class free kick sealed the win. There was a real feel good factor about Blundell Park that day. It feels a long way from that now.

"Falls to Arnold... Arnold! That's it! Thats it! He's sealed it! Grimsby Town are back in the football league!!! Just a minute to go and Nathan Arnold makes it 3-1! Look at the scenes behind the goal! Look at the relief! The agony is finally over!!!"

Tough to think of one so probably Slade getting the sack.

Absolutely the 3-0 at Plymouth. The ultimately false feeling of ‘we’ve got some cracking players and a forward thinking, innovative and charismatic manager, how far could we go?’ The was the peak since we were promoted, no doubt.

Macca, Tait, Toto, Gowling, Robertson, Arnold, Dis, Clay, Nolan, Podge, Omar.

The best starting XI in my lifetime.

Bogle's one man show at home to Stevenage. He was absolutely awesome that day. Sad to see what's happened to him since.

It has to be coming out the tunnel at BP against Morecambe in 2016. It's been downhill ever since

That first day against Morecambe. Just for a while, it felt like the old days, back where we belong.  

The night match against Swindon was a great game, and the Matt header against County was as much relief as joy. Wish there was more to savour.

Winning away at Luton under Hurst, downhill ever since.

Sure we had this thread not long back though.
