Hi all. I hope you don't mind me invading the forum.
I run a podcast called Why Always Us where we speak to fans of a different club each week about all the biggest injustices that have ever happened to their team - on or off the field.

This weekend we're recording with two Grimsby Town supporters and so I wanted to ask you to list your top 3 worst in this thread, so I can ask our guests about any that they don't happen to bring up.

We're looking for terrible referee decisions, off field debacles and anything else where you think the football gods have it in for you or 'that could only happen to Grimsby' For example, our QPR fans mentioned a dodgy goal in a game that didn't even involve them that ended up getting them relegated, Everton had the outbreak of 2 world wars that broke up their championship winning teams. As a Spurs fan I'll never forget the disallowed goal at old trafford that was about 5 yards over the line.

If you're interested i will post the link to the episode in this thread once it's recorded. Thanks!

Didn't go myself but the bra searches at Stevenage have to be up there.

The worst moment for me being a town fan is when we got relegated to non league.


Grimsby and proud!

Before our time but World War Two for breaking up our best ever side which finished 5th in England's Premier league of the time and appeared in two FA Cup semi finals, the second of which is famous for the biggest crowd ever seen at Old Trafford a record which stands to this day.

Scott Neilson's red card at Gateshead in the playoff semi final. The worst decision I've ever seen.

I think my worst injustice was when we played Bristol Rovers in the Conference play off final in May 2015, when after being 1-0 up after 2 minutes, the Mariners continued to press and Rovers goalkeeper Puddy blatantly handled Ollie Palmer's shot outside the area and was only given a yellow card.

I can't find reference to it, but I seem to recall that the ref said he didn't want to ruin the game at such an early stage.

Bristol then went on to equalise and won on penalties, meaning we were back in the Conference the next season.
