Is Blundell Park impossible to rebuild?

I fully appreciate there's going to be limitations but this was the line that was continually pushed out by the Fenty and his mob.  The new owners, especially AP, are experienced in regeneration as far as I'm aware and will have a far greater insight into what can and can't be done at Blundell Park.

Whatever happens, Blundell Park needs to be used more than just on matchdays.  The location and access to parking will be the biggest obstacle to that I'd imagine.  

The council can get copulated though.  Tired of their faux interest in the club.  That bloody palm tree sums them up.

Agreed...the line that it was impossible to redevelop was merely another nonsense line from Fenty to ensure he could push his agenda towards a vanity project aimed at making him a bit of wedge and massaging his ego as the man that got us a new ground...

I’d imagine AP in particular knows various folk who could deliver that regeneration and redevelopment and a fraction of the cost of a new ground...

All of our happy memories are at Blundell Park and some not so good ones as well.

I think it could be a few more years before a new stadium is built.

So while we are waiting why not do the park up a bit ?

Extending the main stand or even knocking it down and having a new one might be the way forward.

Extend the pontoon so all of that end of the ground is covered in.

That will take the ground capacity to between 11,000 - 12,500.

That gives us a few years before a new ground is required.

Then when we have all the finance sorted and how a new stadium will work we can think about where we should put it.

Brentford who will be playing in the premier next season chose to build their ground in the tight space that was available so what's the rush it will be another 5 or 6 years at least before we get to the premier .

Quoted from mimma
With the recent announcement about the building of a new road linking the roundabout at Morrisons to the roundabout on the M180, would it make the old Great Coates site become more viable? It would open up more land for building, so would there be a new site for a new stadium?


Looking at the route it would need to take this may be as likely as a new stadium. There is no real reason to build from morrisons to the A180 as you already have a number of roads leading off to various locations. Also the road would go through a lot of greenfield sites, some beauty spots and no doubt the nesting area of the "great crested newt" will be involved along the way!

If we get a new stadium we could also use the palm tree to light up the car park. With a sign saying sponsored by North East Lincolnshire Council.

I don't live in Grimsby so this is the first I've heard of this 'plan' and my immediate reaction was 'a road from Morrisons to the A180? What the f*ck do they want for, it's a road from nowhere to nowhere'. And it's not like the road's needed to ease massive congestion.

Have you ever driven into town from the M180 in the afternoon?  The tailback can reach Great Cotes somedays.  This new road would take a lot of traffic away towards Bradley, that would otherwise have to go into town.

Am I the only person who doesn't want to move?

I like the fact that our stadium is vintage. I'm doubtful post pandemic that many of the sources of revenue that a new stadium would bring (meeting rooms) are as viable as they once were and I just don't see how heaping a load of debt onto the club helps us on the pitch.


I've said this elsewhere and I'm happy to take the red crosses...

BP is one of the few areas of supporting Town where I have no rose coloured specs or heart over head. It isn't "vintage". It's a f*cking sh*thole. I am embarrassed by the place, it's like watching sport on a dystopian science fiction movie set. It is the last word on where we are as a club, decrepit and badly needing a major overhaul.

As facilities at other leisure pursuits get better and more comfortable BP just looks worse and worse.

Surely any traffic heading towards Bradley would have got off the M/A180 long before the 'town'? My folks live in Waltham and I wouldn't dream of going into town to get there (off at Barnetby Top).

Brentford's ground may well be in a tight space but it's completely new and built on a brownfield site - it was tight because it's between 2 railway lines and a road. It's a shortish walk away from Griffin Park.

It's also a community stadium built alongside the council.
