Quoted from GyFerrers
The ‘new A14’ from the A1 Junction is excellent.  Used to take me 45 minutes to get from Higham Ferrers in Northants to my boat in Fen Stanton, now takes 25 minutes.  Means I get to a place of pleasure much quicker on a Saturday.  Far better than driving to Grimsby for the pleasure of being surrounded by tattooed, pierced, negative, down-trodden, council house dwelling underlings.  Of course, this is just my opinion......


Have you been living under you f*****g boat for the last 2 weeks?

Things have changed a bit recently or at least it feels that way to most people who associate themselves with GTFC

Quoted from Poojah


I left Grimsby seventeen years ago when I was eighteen. Putting it like that, it feels weird and also slightly sad that I’ve spent almost half my life outside of my home town.

For work and family reasons I’ll probably never move ‘home’, and I acknowledge that the area has its challenges.

But fúck me, am I proud of where I come from. It’s a fundamental part of who I am. It’s a hard town, it’s grim in places, but you grow up here and you learn a certain work ethic. You graft. You make the most of whatever you’re blessed with.

My upbringing has carried me further than any talent I have might have taken me. Further than many people I encounter who are more naturally talented, intelligent or privelaged than me.

I couldn’t make it to Leyton Orient today, and I’m gutted. But there’s little in life more special than being a couple of hundred miles away from home with thousands of your brethren, going fúcking mental! People you don’t necessarily know, but have this natural, innate connection with.

To disown your own town in the way the previous poster did says more about their own insecurities than it does about the place itself. If you don’t support the town, I don’t see how you can support its football team.

I’m Grimsby ‘til I die.


I’ve lived away for a few years and I’m always proud of where I come from .
I’ve often found the ones that move away and continue to slag it off was the ones that never fitted in when they was here anyway .
Usually the Bullshiters , odd balls and chancers that Grimsby folk soon suss our

No wonder you feel superior if you live in one of these houses Ferrers. Perhaps the one with the blue plaque? I always feel privileged to be rubbing shoulders with folk who have gold edged signposts. Do you slum it down at the local Home Bargains perchance? My favourite shop in Hillsborough.

Can't understand the point of this post but do find it disrespectful to myself and would imagine many other people from Grimsby and there's no need for it.


I'm not even from Grimsby and I think GyFerrers post is bloody disrespectful.

The truth is you could drive through areas of most towns & cities in England and find people such as those described.  It's not unique to Grimsby.

with the possible exception of the 'negative' tag, which has lifted recently, the rest of his description is an extremely accurate one of many who inhabit the town


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