When I was a little boy
I asked my daddy what would i be
would I be United, would i be Leeds
Here's what he said to me

Oh Grimsby Grimsby
Whatever will be will be
You'll follow then faithfully
Oh Grimsby Grimsby


Tell me Mam me Mam
I dont want no tea no tea
I'm watching the Grimsby
Tell me Mam me mam

I got the impression that a certain member of the GTFC board took legal action against the old Fishy. Was it just because he wanted to suppress general criticism, or had someone posted a specific comment that was deemed unacceptable?


It was in the days of Wayne and Macabillk...........when the forum was fun

What I liked about the old fishcake was that you were able to post on all the other clubs sites under your username without having to register on every individual site.

Use to be great fun posting messages on other teams sites without having to register on them.

Yeah that's how I remember it too

The rivals network as mimma says meant when you logged on to the Fishcake you could access all the other teams forums too

I could be wrong but I think SKY had a hand in Rivals trying to extort more money from the subscribers....

That and Brexit


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.

Bizarre! I was laying in hospital thinking the same last week!

The grimmy was a lot of fun, though very tongue in cheek. It's the footprint imho of how a forum should be



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”
