Its taken me about 20 odd minutes to read all these posts,

I have a theory that most might agree with,

We play boring football with very few thrills or goals and the crowd will stay at home on a cold Tuesday night in November.

We turn things round playing fast exciting football with plenty of thrills and goals and the crowds will flock back.

Just ask Laurie Mcmenemy.


But according to one poster on here he was a "one hit wonder" for us!

Yes   gates went from under 4,000 to average 11,500  and what a promotion year,

I think it was 10th in what is L1 now the following season and we still averaged 10,600 ish.

Then Southampton came and took him away.

I have just seen on the GTFC twitter page that we have scored ONE  home league goal since the 24th August.

I now realise why the attendance was so low.  


I can't even remember it yet I can remember Ron Rafferty shoulder charging their keeper into the net at Hull for a Town goal many moons ago.  Strange isn't it that I can't remember many good things this season.

I have just read this post out to my wife- "And you'll renew your season ticket next year-you must be crackers" she exclaimed.  Is she right ?

If she has only just realised you are crackers, then it’s her that must be crackers.

You lost it years ago 😉

So at least a two-hit wonder then, Pete.

I was a teenager when Big Mac was boss...not an adult, but I observed adults closely - being at the age when I wanted to act and hopefully
be treated like one.
When Big Mac was manager, the sometimes shambling/carefree population of Grimsby were strutting.

The league tables don't reveal that.
