No one is more gutted than me how things are going for us at the moment but things could be worse :

Chesterfield are losing 0-2 at home tonight in the tinpot and as it stands are 2nd from bottom.
Wrexham are also in a relegation spot and the mighty Notts County are only mid table.

Just saying.

Never really understand these comparisons. Some teams we've played before are now doing worse than us. On the other hand, some teams we've played before are now doing better than us.

History counts for nothing.

Workington are nowhere
Stockport and York climbing back from obscurity

Do we have any gtfc fans who can update us on the golden years of gtfc in the 1930s? I would like to hear if we still have anyone left who could share some memories

Trying to use other clubs demise in the vain hope it gives a crumb of comfort just ain't going to cut it PP.
We are on a way path to the same situation as Wrexham, Chesterfield and Notts C.
If anything they'll pass us on the way up...
Nearly every fan to a man has had enough now, at least the Wrexham owners came out and apologised for the state they're in, where as ours think they're doing a great job and we should be thankful for having a team to watch...that's the reality check I'm afraid me old mucker

If I was you I'd take up cross stitch, lot less stressful and more fulfilling than watching town at the moment...that might make you feel better👍

It was a good try but something feels even more wrong than usual at the moment. It’s got to the stage where I don’t even want to think about Town a lot of the time, which has never happened in 40 odd years as a fan! I’m just so sick and tired of it all, and there’s no end in sight. Happy days...

Knit and natter would be a better pastime than following GT at the moment.

Says so much when you see how few people are on the Fishy...the clubs killing the fans...thus board needs to wake up to the reality of the situation before it's too late...that's if it isn't already for most right now 😭

We could/will possibly be third bottom on saturday (after the Carlisle  loss).

Scunthorpe could then boast of sending us to the bottom of the league.

....or am I just being too much of a defeatist.


Batch, K.Moore, Waters, Wiggington, Crombie, Brolly, Ford, Drinkell, Mitchell, Cumming, Kilmore. D.Moore, Stone, Liddell. ....1979/80..... now that WAS a team.
