I worked with 2 Scunts who bought season tickets whilst Hull were in the Prem for for the very same reason Dapperz says above, so low they can't even be classed as glory hunters.


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.

Quoted from Northbank Mariner


The problem you've got B...iron, is the same we've had for 15 years...a man in charge of the club who knows nothing about owning a football club but believes he knows everything..
We've been lucky with Holloway coming in and putting his money where his mouth is and as such gives us that "behind the scenes" knowledge.
Swann has the attitude of "it's my way or the highway", unfortunately I believe that will lead you down one path and that's the one to the back waters of football...as I've said, the rivalry is bitter between GTFC and SUFC but I'd rather your rivalry than that of the 6 finger brigade of LCFC..


Sad to read but can't help but agree with that. I am clinging on to a glimmer of hope that things will change but it is merely a glimmer of hope. I am encouraged by the Under 23 squad project that we have but at this present time, it is not something we need.  As you lot are all too aware, League Two is a physical league .  

Rivalry is bitter and can be very toxic but would we have it any other way?  for me there is no game quite like it.  Interesting to hear your views there.

That is disgraceful, whoever they are clearly weren't true supporters.  I have supported Scunny since i was 6, my hometown team. I don't know anything different.  Grew up seeing you lot in the Championship then was lucky enough to see us reach them heights ourselves.

Good man. Although we're local rivals, you have my respect for supporting your club through thick and thin.
When Dull City were first promoted to the Premier League, I saw a few Town supporters switch allegiance and start following them instead. Disgraceful.



Thank you, and you have my respect too.  You're right, disgraceful that any true football supporter would do that.  It makes you appreciate the good times even more when you have gone through the bad. Just like life in general!

I detest 3 sets of fan`s in football Liverpool,Norwich and Scunny and oddly enough Liverpool and Scunny because of their gloating supporter base albeit on vastly different scales. I liked the OSG and never minded Scunny back then it all changed when you moved to GP you tried lording it over us with your newly built sardine tin . The FA Cup game here a few Seasons back I have never seen such hostility from our home support it was pure hatred and it seemed like the vast majority felt that way ? We had a lot of games vs Lincoln and though one or two incidents occurred I would like to think most Imps fans felt safe visiting Grimsby unless looking for trouble . I think the final tipping point for many was just prior to our relegation lots of Scunny fans came on this website and others declaring they were coming to support Barnet at BP. Not sure how many came they wisely kept a low profile but rest assured should Scunny find themselves in the same sh1t state I will be in Glanford Park to return the favour and I wont be alone we could probably fill the away end . The numbers of Northern sides in the lower leagues that have dropped into non league suggests your time is soon to come around and I can`t wait.UTM

Being a bit old school ,LCFC and SUFC have never really been that significant to me (only recent history put them above us) to me the only club i detest (apart from prem teams)is our six finger scum from across the river. utm

Having always lived in Brigg and Bottesford and doing 40 years on the steelworks I know quite a few scunts,  so therefore I wouldn’t say the word is hate, but as Kevin Keegan (an old scunny player as well) would say “I would love it, just love it, if they were relegated” so yes they have always to me been our number 1 rivals.
