Quoted from Bigdog


Even though they were in the Premier League and Championship Blackpool struggled to attract 10k home fans as you're not taking into account the huge away followings. Not much different to us if we had a stadium like theirs with a large away end and playing at the top end of the pyramid.

Yet again defeatism to the fore and instantly downgrade GTFC. What about Yeovil then? They've just attracted new investment. What plethora of false reasons are you going to give for Yeovil being a better proposal than Town?

Maybe the truth around our club's complete lack of new investment is closer to one of the following

A JF doesn't really want to relinquish control
B The board can't market a bag of crisps so how could they be trusted to market the sale of a football club properly
C GTFC sale is screwed because of the size of the outstanding loans compared to the value
D Who the hell knows GTFC is up for sale outside NE Lincs?
E A mixture of A, B, C and D

I'll go for E..


So when we were in the 2nd tier and attracting these huge away attendances, it's not really backing up your theory that we have a similar support when we just about averaged 6k. Even in 98/99 when we were on the cusp of the playoffs for most of the season after an incredibly successful season the year before we didn't even get close to 7k.

Who has invested in Yeovil? They are talking about things, but as we were told, we had talks about investors but nothing came of it.

It must be hard for you to remember that that’s what you were told when you told us yourself.

And let’s not forget the guy who would have invested. But didn’t because of the toxic fans. But of course Mr Shut up couldn’t possibly name him.  So in reality couldn’t prove the point he made.
But as I pointed out on the (hugely embarrassing) night, I didn’t call him a liar. I just stated that he couldn’t really back up what he said 🤔🤔. Just another excuse by a board that has failed to attract (or didn’t want) any further investment in GTFC !!


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'

How about using some of the other earlier seasons in the Championship when our capacity was a lot larger and we averaged arond 10 or 11k, but you still use the lowest statistics available. Defeatist attitude which is riddlled throughout the operational side of our club.

I pray for the day when our club gets a new board of directors..

More boardroom bull. Let’s look at Lincoln who have a similar catchment to us, they’ve trebled their home attendance in the last 4 years. Lies, damned lies and statistics.


But, but, but.. we haven't got a nice church on a hill OC, got to have a nice church on a hill to attract new investment..

Defeatist attitude that thinks League 2 survival is good enough but is spending thousands upgrading a ground that isn’t.

You’re so right Bigdog. But now they’ve flattened the hills in the goalmouths, where can we build our nice church?

In the last 60 years, there have been only 4 seasons averaging over 10k. The last time was 38 years ago. There's no basis to your claim that we'd be better supported with better leadership because even when we were good, without all the bad PR and bad running of the club, we weren't well supported.

Defeatist again. The past two decades are the longest sustained period of lowest average attendances in the history of the club. Fact. The past two decades are the longest period of sustained lowest finishing positions in the football pyramid in our history. Fact. Give up defending the indefensible..

You just don’t get it, do you? Why do use history to feed negativity? I could give you a list of names who won’t go to BP while you and your cronies are running the club, people who have supported the club for years who aren’t prepared to cough up to support a badly run club in a decrepit stadium.
