Oh dear - 12 out of the previous 15 years Scunthorpe have a larger average home attendance than Grimsby.  


You have made that up.

2018-2019 Grimsby 4430, Scunthorpe 4227
2017-2018 Grimsby 4658, Scunthorpe 4364
2016-2017 Grimsby 5259, Scunthorpe 4536
2015-2016 Grimsby 4357, Scunthorpe 3907

Didn't bother looking further back

Quoted from Stevie Cammack


Yes - Should probably be a middling 3rd tier side.  Losing to Rotherham in the PO's a few years was a disaster on that score - the best 7 players all left to go play in the 2nd tier.  That was mismanagement, and in effect a massive gamble which failed.  Was never going to bounce back from that quickly.

The crap someone has spouted, and then somehow become gospel, about us spending gazillions of pounds is nonsense though.  We had a calculated gamble prior to the Rotherham PO loss season, yes - but we haven't suddenly suddenly become a mini-Chelsea, where Swann is some Abramovic type figure.  

The biggest error was releasing Lee Turnbull & his scouting network.  Sharp, Keogh, Hayes, Hooper (from Southend ressies!) - and more, bought for peanuts.


I think the perception that you’ve spent t a lot may come the aforementioned PR from Mr Swann, this isn’t based upon rivalry it’s an observation sometimes he comes across a bit “look at my wadd”. I did find it ironic that Dawson jumped ship to Bury and when it went mammaries up moaned like a female dog.

Hmm, I looked at EM Football.  I'll have another look.  What do have for the 15 years, ie 8-7, 10-5 etc etc?  Its certainly not "always" which is the point I was responding to....

I don't pay a lot of attention to PR in general, but yes I would prefer less 'Chairman Statements'.  Too 'hands-on' for my tastes, but what do I know?

Aye Grimrob, I was wrong there - its either 9-6 or 10-5 in Scunthorpes favour over the last 15 years.  One season a few years ago has differing results according to sources, but I'm happy to call it 9-6, especially as GY are so massive.   .  

I suppose Northbank 'Face to Face' Mariner may change his statement to - we'll always have the best support apart from when we didn't!!  

This is the big differences between our clubs I think - we know we are a backwater small club, and don't really care.

Lot of you lot seem to think you have some historical football relevance due to Alan Buckley et al having a real purple period, whilst you lot cried and moaned about merely surviving in the second tier mind you.  I think us winning the 3rd tier by miles under Adkins will take some beating by either Scunthorpe or Grimsby in the next 100 years TBH.

Of course Stevie the Wizard made it up, he can't get his facts right because he has been exposed as a Town fan, most likely a Fentyista trying to divert attention away from his failing mate.

Tell us pretend Scunt when you were massive how many did you take to Wembley for your first trip.


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

You are great you - genuinely interested to read how I have been "exposed" as a "Town Fan" and a "Fentyista"?     Can't recall it happening i must admit, but it sounds a bit 'Day of the Jackal' with knobs on - looking forward to reading all about it very much indeed!

Regarding your query - I don't think we have ever "been massive", but i reckon we took about 12k maybe in 1992 when Blackpool (Dave Bamber et al) did us on penalties.

Sorry Wizard, I should let you carry on pretending to be a Scunt. It's obvious you are a Fentyista, and trying to divert attention from your hero by constantly blowing smoke up his bottom whilst hating on anything to do with Town, sort of thing a Fentyista would do, so you carry on, you've exposed yourself on this, not the first time though eh.
