The Telegraph has an update on Grimsby West:

https://www.grimsbytelegraph.co.uk/news/grimsby-news/grimsby-west-developers-share-vision-6476214

Still no mention of Grimsby Town FC. I'm a little concerned it could take 20 to 30 years for all of the 3,500 houses to be delivered. I don't know if a stadium can be built in the area before then.

I wouldn't say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one.

Far easier to do when you’ve got a plot of land just outside of London that you can get 502 houses on…

Even more so when the actual ground development includes 1461 new homes and a hotel.

The Council keep including that in the proposal but it’s my understanding Lincoln are not keen and have certainly not agreed to leaving Sinclair Bank which they are currently redeveloping into a 12,000 seater stadium.

History. Nostalgia. Memories. Convenience (for some). Atmosphere (possibly).


We haven't graced the top flight since 1948, haven't been divisional champions since 1980, haven't had a Football League promotion since 1998 and haven't played in the second tier since 2003. IIRC, our last giant-killing was Tottenham in 2005.

Wigan moved to a new stadium in 1999, were promoted to the Premier League in 2005 and their fans have memories of winning the FA Cup in 2013.

Hull moved to a new stadium in 2002, were promoted to the Premier League in 2008 and their fans have memories of playing in the 2014 Cup Final.

I struggle to understand the fondness some supporters still have for Blundell Park.

Freemo would be more convenient for most people than Grimsby West or Peaks Parkway.

A new stadium with two side stands of equal height would have a better atmosphere.

I get all this but It's not a guarantee of success - Darlington moved to a new ground and that went well. I'm not seeing York's new stadium paying dividends.

The sums have to add up, If the the Club can make more money out of a new ground than they pay out then fine - but if not then why would we move?
