No work on for me this week so I’m going to come down and have a watch of my first reserves match. Are you allowed to wear man-made fibres in the Main Stand or does it breach the fire certificate?



Just don't rub your legs together


Well I did try to tell you all Jolley was a mistake

Still get people in shell suits full stop like wtf

The Main Stand is a strange place though, like a ghoulish time warp, I hate the negative foghorn or two in there constantly giving pelters to our player's and management even when we're not that bad.

Chiiimmmaaaa , Ivano Ivano Ivano and i think ( or was it a dream ) Lombardo all in the reserves at some point ?


There definitely was an extra Italian or two though I think one got injured and never appeared for us. The other, name did begin with an L I got to sign my Grimsby Town jacket at the ressies. 👍

Remember a reserves game where there was 6000 turn up against Liverpool. Not a clue who was playing for either side just remember being ther and I think we got beat quite badly



“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”

If it was the same game I was at then our reserves lost five or six nil. From what I remember the only big names playing were Craig Johnson and Barry Vennison with that feathery mullet. It was a big crowd, even a few Liverpool fans in the Osmond, whether they were hardcore supporters who followed the reserves or just locals who supported Liverpool, I don't know. It was probably my first visit to Blundell Park.

Remember Going to a reserve match with my dad and we had a central midfielder trialist called Johnny Walker and thought he was decent. Of course we never offered him a deal and he went on to play in Scotland at a quite high level (be it in Scotland).

Hoping if there are trialists tomorrow we can expect former or current fringe players from championship level upwards

I remember the youth team playing a cup game against Arsenal in the early noughties. There must have been a couple of thousand there; Arsenal had a young kid playing for them who was tipped to be a world superstar and the future of English football.

It was Jermaine Pennant.
