Quoted from promotion plaice

After being a season ticket holder for the last few seasons it will be pay as you go next season for me.

I fully expect Jolley to be given a poor budget for league 2 this summer.

No way I'm funding Mr Fenty's £200K a season claw back over bad decisions this time.  


£200,000 is about £67 per season ticket holder based on the usual 3,000 sold. A lot less than the increases.

I'm one of the idiots who will get a ST again but the shame is it's more because I like to go on the ale with the lads rather than the football.
I don't mind paying £20 more for a ST because us fans keeping the club going because the bloke at the top won't (and has not put anything in for a long time)

I'm in the lucky position that I can pay for my ticket up front.
There are lots of others who can't do this so have to pay monthly so for the club not now to allow fans to do this is a scandal.
Then again what do we expect from Team Fenty.


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.

Quoted from KingstonMariner


This is the risk. (Not that I see you as a fossil Cockers old boy). Overall we look to have an aging supporter profile. Not helped by waves of emmigration from the area - the first generation might make it back regularly, their offspring might do a bit, but as their social links are increasingly elsewhere they'll slowly stop coming. Driving around town today, much of it is run down and getting shabbier by the year. There are a lot of people who would have been hrdcore in past times who don't have the money. The town centre is dead (you can count the footfall in Freshney Place by hand). Emmigration from GY will not decrease any time soon. If people grow up with no connection with the club, when they go they won't be back. The club needs to work harder at attracting and retaining  and retaining the fanbase instead of the same tired old approaches, and belittling of supporters efforts.


I think you have just described this town/area like hundreds of towns across the country.

It is funny that 120,000 or whatever it is still live here isn't it?

A lot of them look out for their home town or local team, and many worse places than ours sit well above us in the football pyramid. Look at the scenes at Wembley in a non league final against unknown FGR - that tells you all you need to know about the passion there is for GTFC.

What lets us down is the club itself; the people that run it have not got the money, drive or ambition to make a go of it and people will not buy into stagnation. They love success though; they want to share the good times and they want to be part of a vision. OK, success might not last too long, but the main thing holding us back is the people in charge.

Well I like a lot of other season ticket holders will be renewing because it's what I can do to help. I don't want the club to be reliant on the benefices of one man and have absolutely no intention of cutting off the very source that means that he won't get a chance to put more of a stumbling block in the way of someone wanting to take over.  I just cannot reconcile the views that his loans are what are holding the club back with a desire to punish the club for lack of ambition by holding back money which ultimately prevents that from happening. If as claimed our budget is well below that expected to even perform to a mid table level why would you want to further shrink that income? Our prices are comparable with other teams in our league. Social media has been full of people saying they can get a season ticket far higher up the leagues for an equivalent price or less...well perhaps they can but it would be interrsting (to me at least) to know what percentage of that clubs income comes through gate/season ticket sales especially when one of the comparisons I've seen is with newly promoted to the Premiership Sheffield United! I'm sure I read once that Premier League teams could play to virtually empty stadia without too much detrimental effect..


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

I’m pretty sure that if I wanted to buy a car on finance and the dealers usual broker went bust or whatever, they would soon find another broker !!!  But maybe car sales rooms value their customers  


The wife was going away for a girly weekend.
I jokingly remarked  'I don't know whether to spend it watching porn or watching football'
'you may as well spend it watching porn' she replied
That's understanding darling what makes you say that? I asked

She said 'Well you already know how to play football'

My golf club used Zebra for the financing if annual subscription and we were informed end of February that they would no longer be using Zebra as the company were no longer in a position to offer finance but we're upholding all loans agreed before February 1st...
So, it goes to show, that once again GFTC have been behind the 8 ball and acted reactively rather than proactively as they would have known about Zebras situation months ago and have done, as far as I can gather, nothing to find another finance company yet our golf club sorted this out straight away ..and we've 500 members not 3000...

Looked at in isolation that makes sense Barra, but you know that's only part of the picture. People are pished off being taken for granted and also astonished by the incompetence at the way the club is marketed (or not as seems the case).


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
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.
