I remember going to a meet the manager do, with Newell and Stein on the front table, Newell was sporting the biggest black eye I'd ever seen, and joked it away saying he had chased one of his kids around the farm where he was staying and ran head first into a stationary plough.
Thought it was a lie at the time due to his attitude, wonder if someone stuck one on him, understandable now was his fracas with our leader

He's 36 years old!? He looks absolutely knackered! He should have laid off the beers and he might have still been playing now

Quoted from Kris2

Probably the case for most on here. Down the docks in their youth sticking the fish down their pants and dancing around to "baggy trousers" while others pay for them to do so. Everyone seems to miss those days and I can see why. You were getting to work on the urine and getting paid for it then going down to fight the Millwall on the weekend.  

Now you're a bunch of morning old twits with one foot in the grave.  

I don’t recall any of those firms almost going bust because of those antics Chris.

I don’t recall thousands of people paying good money to watch their filleting skills only to go home disappointed week after week.

I don’t recall any of those dockies then going on social media to take the p1ss out if their employers and customers.

And if Linwood wanted the odd punch up with like minded people in his own time I wouldn’t give a shiny sh1t.

And Swin is a far far better troll than you’ll ever be. So you can’t win that one either.


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'

Quoted from GollyGTFC

And re: John Welsh he was tried in a court of law. The matter has been dealt with. Would I talk to him if I bumped into him? No, Would I go up to him and abuse him? No. That doesn't mean I give a damn about him and his feelings. It's because decent human beings do not abuse other human beings. Anybody who has or condones sending personal abuse to Linwood, Welsh or whoever is not a decent human being in my opinion and is in no place to lecture anyone on other people's shortcomings.

Except of course the situation  is quite different to the one you describe above. Linwood wasn't minding his own business and people suddenly abused him online. He was online making fun of how he took the urine out of town and didn't care and got us relegated and didn't give a excrement.
The "if you met him in the street equivalent" situation is him going up to loads of town fans saying, "ha I played for you lot, took the urine big time, got you relegated. When you were paying me to represent you and travelling all over to support and encourage me I was getting drunk and didn't give a excrement. Made mugs of you lot". Then him being surprised when the group he had said that to reacted to his provocation and insulting behaviour with abuse.
If that group did react it wouldn't mean they were not decent people. It would take exceptional levels of restraint not to react to that behaviour.
Linwood certainly can have no complaints that his online mouthing off about his urine taking of grimsby town and it's fans has resulted in an online response.

I never said I found it hilarious, so please don't put words into my mouth. What it shows (as does the c0ck conkers at Fleetwood) the sort of things that really go on inside a club. I just think it's very interesting- the things that go on in changing rooms that would get you sacked and put on a register if you did them in the real world.

And no they didn't take the urine out of us. They simply drunk away their careers. Most of the senior players had already done so at a higher level. It's hardly surprising they carried on the same at GTFC when we had Newell and Stein in charge.

Yes Paul...
