To be fair he explained his reason for holding that opinion- the abuse he received from GTFC fans after the initial podcast was released.

Whatever anybodies opinion of Linwood there is absolutely no excuse for directing personal abuse at him online.


Can you honestly say that doing the interview in the first place was in his best interests?

'Oh, look at me, I took the urine while I was at Grimsby, as did my team-mates and the manager'. With all respect, he's put himself up there to be shot at.

I mean, we were relegated to non-league for the first time in our history, took us 7 years to get back, lost our youth team funding, no doubt people lost their jobs and we had to cut our cloth accordingly, but yeah poor old Linwood - he was only having a bit of bAnTz.

Former Grimsby Town defender Paul Linwood has refused to apologise to the club’s fans following his controversial appearance on a podcast last year.
Linwood appeared as a guest on the I Had Trials Once… podcast last summer, in which he went into detail about the drinking culture in the Mariners’ 2009/10 squad.

That season saw Town relegated from the Football League, and it subsequently took the club six years to make their return.
On the podcast, Linwood spoke about how he and other players would regularly drink alcohol on the way to training, and how then-manager Mike Newell would join players for their drinking sessions.
His comments angered many Town fans, particularly as Linwood appeared to show no remorse for his or his team-mates actions in what many supporters view as the club’s lowest point.

“We had a few beers, and then we start talking about football and Grimsby,” Linwood said, referencing his previous appearance.
“So I may have over-stepped the mark with some of the comments.”
One of the presenters remarked: “I think you sprinkled a little bit of sugar on it just to make the story sound a bit better."
Linwood replied: “No, I didn’t. They were the full stories, you’ve got to tell the truth.
“So we were saying we’d come out and do this, so I was just going to use this to apologise to none of them.

“F***ing not one of them because they abused me for f***ing months after it, so they can f*** off, all of them.”
Linwood spent just one season with the Mariners, leaving the club shortly after the relegation from the Football League.
He went on to play for Fleetwood before returning to one of his previous clubs in Chester in 2012.
The defender also played for the likes of Salford City, Connah's Quay Nomads and Ramsbottom United, before going on to Trafford FC.

You are so right.
The man clearly needs a big hug  having done nothing wrong (Who are we to judge) and we should start a crowd funding for some counselling ASAP.

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'

Sorry, but there is never any excuse for sending personal abuse to an individual online. EVER.

I actually found his first podcast appearance quite funny.

And if I hadn't listened to it in full I wouldn't know that Nathan Pond was the only player at Fleetwood who wouldn't join in with "C0ck Conkers".

And if I hadn't listened to the John Welsh podcast I wouldn't have heard the Dean Windass/Boaz Myhill bath story,

I'm with Holloway that it is a privilege to play football for a living and if you don't work hard enough you soon drift out of the professional game as Linwood found out.

Even though he was/is being breathtakingly arrogant about taking the urine out of fans who regularly shell out 100's of pounds a year to keep him in lager?
