Hopefully this is where we’ll see Day’s experience as a lawyer come good, and he got all his ducks in a row (and had it all documented).


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Quoted from Bigdog
Like the rest of the country, football and GTFC have to get on with the season. It was never going to be perfect, but with a financial package on the way, we're going to have to make the best of it. There's no assurance Covid is going to go away anytime in the near future and there could be bigger dangers for clubs going into extended hibernation, especially Leagues One, Two and below.

I'm a bit ashamed to read that most of our fanbase on here want the season ending. Just as bad as one or two Premier League clubs trying to cancel relegation in the summer, and most probably influenced by a poor transfer window, ins and outs, and an horrific start to the season. Opinions wouldn't be the same if we'd kept the best players out of last season's squad and we'd have beaten Walsall away and smashed Salford at home 4-0. The pedantic attitude of the club has rubbed off on the fans and GTFC as a whole has become as meek as mice..

Stop wittering, take blows on the chin, make the best of circumstances like others have and get on with it FFS. Excuse after excuse, self pity ad nauseum..


What financial package?!

If we’d managed to assemble a decent squad and had started well and won every game would people be so quick to want to curtail the season?

We’ve sat around waiting for a bailout which isn’t a definite, we started back late so we’re playing catch up, spent 16 weeks pleading poverty and now we’re miles off the pace when we actually play.

The club must take some responsibility as much as the EFL. It’s clearly just being made up as we go along and nobody seems to have a flipping clue what to do; art imitating life once again (our football is less artistic than previous though).


'the poor and the needy are selfish and greedy'...well done Mozza

Quoted from Bigdog


Bradford City director of communications Ryan Sparks speaks ahead of Stevenage fixture.

He makes a damning assessment of the way Mr Day and GTFC have gone about announcing that next Saturday's game was not going to be played.

If true that it was announced to Radio Humberside before anyone spoke to Bradford City then that is a terrible lack of manners.

Mr Day should clarify the situation.

So we did make a unilateral decision then. Makes us look like amateurs.

He just sounds like a moaning yorkie to me.

- The rules on covid are very clear.
- They may have been interpreted differently by different clubs (how on earth it is clear if it can be interpreted differently).
- Grimsby game should go ahead
- Stevenage game shouldn't have gone ahead
- Grimsby shouldn't be locking down their training ground
- Why have EFL said Grimsby should lock down training ground

Almost everything he says contradicts something he said less than a minute earlier.

The only point he's got that is valid is that not being officially informed by either club is bad etiquette. In our case, we seemingly don't know whether or not we're allowed to play.
