Yes we are all very happy with the ways things are going  I thought  very tongue in cheek I would post a couple of downsides to Towns success

1 No longer get that sympathetic look when I walk into work in Doncaster on Monday morning  with a whispered phrase ....."oh did you go on saturday "

2 I can no longer use Town to threaten my lad ....ie  if you dont tidy your bedroom I will take you to the match on Saturday

3 The wife is for the first time reluctant for me to go to the match  because I might enjoy myself ,  she never had that worry before , she will be planning Saturday afternoon shopping trips soon

can anyone else think of other downsides


<*(((><

    Sometimes the  world is just too cruel to have funny things at the bottom of your post !!!

Takes longer to get out the ground, nothing to moan about, many a thread talking about increased capacity, more folk in the pub so takes longer to get a pint…

In truth, I like the tongue in cheek nature of the post but at this moment in time there really isn’t anything we can moan about with our current situation…

I live near peoples park, it felt like I parked the car at Barnetby top last time, the walk seemed that far away!


"Falls to Arnold... Arnold! That's it! Thats it! He's sealed it! Grimsby Town are back in the football league!!! Just a minute to go and Nathan Arnold makes it 3-1! Look at the scenes behind the goal! Look at the relief! The agony is finally over!!!"

The foyer in the Lower is getting that busy now that it is becoming chaotic. It's murder trying to get a beer at that little bar just behind the turnstiles now with everyone piling in.
The queue for the gents lacks structure and gets in the way of fans trying to get up and down the stairway.

Great to see all these extra fans but jeez do we need a new stadium.


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

There's a sign on the wall about the gents queue, probably new, unless I've just not noticed it before.

Seems odd to be moaning about toilets, parking, and not the owners, the players, the food or the management!  

This thread is ideal for moaning about there being not enough to own about 😀😉

Parking. I’m there on my own today due to Covid isolations so rather than frustrate myself I’m walking the 4miles there.

It wont seem very far to walk home if we win but it'll seem like a marathon if we happen to lose.

I agree, parking within easy walking distance can be a nightmare now. So much so that I've now been going about an hour earlier than normal to get a space where I usually park, and just sitting in the car listening to music or Radio Hullberside. Thankfully today I'm being dropped off and picked up by a friend so today will be fine.

Booking flights around Town fixtures and the jeopardy of not knowing whether you’ll get a ticket or the gets  match moved because of the telly or police advice!
