Great win for us today.

When was the last time we were above Scunthorpe in the league ?

One for the stats.

About 2004?

Yep, would’ve been the final game of the 2003/4 season, in which we were relegated at Tranmere.

Over the past four or five seasons, Scunny have spent roughly a 3x multiple versus us on player wages (before even factoring in transfer fees) yet find themselves below us. Just let that sink in.

However temporary it may be, I find that quite hilarious and a measure of the calamitous way the club has been managed.

You need to spend a lot in League 1 to be fair. I think they are well managed on the whole, but to panic and sack the current Salford manager was their undoing.

Hurst has already remarked on the Scunts questioning his substitution choice and the Scunts are already moaning at their style of play, break them agent Hurst, take them back to the bottom feeders they are, Swann has already had a belly full of bailing out excrement crowds and listening to their couple of hundred fans whine.

Scunthorpe you have been spoiled and now Hurst is there to restore balance, lets hope you drop through the trap door, you deserve it you dirty Scunts.

Swann is renowned for not having much patience in managers so Hurst will soon be under suffocating pressure if they don't get some wins quickly, and then where would Hurst be? Less than 18 months ago he was cream of the crop but 2 sackings in less than a year will seriously damage his stock

I've heard this too but I wouldn't take too much notice of this as it came with Slade taking over Hurst when it does happen, we can only wish for that as a Christmas present.

However, I've heard from a more reliable Scunt, Hurst will be given up to Christmas as he is known for slow starts and climbs up the table slowly, remember Hurst is a percentage manager, some results will go his way as they often did with us and they'll sadly slowly climb out of the drop zone. I hope they drop into the abyss never to reappear, the most sour faced and bitterest fans ever to mouth breath on the football league, fcuk them.

I’m honestly ambivalent towards Hurst nowadays, but part of me hopes that he makes it until Christmas (or 21st December to be precise). That game has the potential for one of the spiciest atmospheres we’ve seen at Blundell Park in many a year.

You have to admit though that it’s not looking good for him right now. Four defeats and one draw from his first five competitive games, bottom of the league, a chairman who is on his sixth manager in three years and presumably a top 3-5 budget doesn’t look like a recipe for long-term employment.

After the way things went at Ipswich and now the start he’s had at Scunny, even a man famed for his unwillingness to admit error must be feeling just a touch of self-doubt, surely?

PP, suggestion, save your dosh and a couple of precious hours on Tuesday for later in the season when it's the important league game at BP, by then though the scunny away numbers will probably be around 200, so a suggestion to the club, shove the scunny fans in the corner of the Osmond and let us also have behind the goal, BP will be rocking by then.

Waiting until Christmas is probably something not on Peter Swann’s to do list. They have two winnable looking home games coming up against Morecambe and Oldham - I should think that he has to win one of them.

As he pointed out in his interview, they have a squad capable of doing alright in this league. Six defeats and a draw in seven suggests things aren’t so hunky dory behind the scenes.

Swann has a lot to answer for here I think, I recall that they where in a good place in terms of league position and stability when he sacked Alexander who is a relatively competent and possibly the best they’d had since Adkins. In addition to having an itchy trigger finger he’s a complete self publicist.

I take no pleasure in seeing clubs relegated to non league as I know what it feels like for the supporters, this season I might make an exception.

Things clearly not all happy families at Scunny. Hurst has tried to move the likes of Kevin Van Veen and Adam Hammill on to no avail - both remain at the club with Hammill completely excluded from the squad.

Now it appears their centre half and recent Hurst signing Kgosi Ntlhe was involved in an assault which left Danny Drinkwater badly injured last weekend:

https://talksport.com/football/598650/danny-drinkwater-burnley-sean-dyche/

They probably have a better squad in general, but already there appear to be signs reminiscent of our disastrous 2009-10 campaign. I can see some seriously dark times ahead for Scunny, and that’s before we even touch on their precarious financial position.

Might explain their summer signings or lack of. Hurst has made a massive mistake here. His turnaround at Shrewsbury was down to getting rid and bringing his own team in. He's now stuck with a load of players who he appears to be falling out with and no access to budget. Much the same as Ipswich. His next appointment will be non-league.

At one stage they were paying Swanns' company £4,000 a week interest on the loans from his company. Maybe the " benign loans " from JF don't look so bad after all and as far as I know the club doesn't pay interest on them.

I don't know how you know what Swann's motives are. Maybe you could share your source with us. There doesn't seem to be any prospect of him getting his money back from Scunny. That article hinted at some tax benefit for the Swann company that made the loan but that would only be tax relief on £4m (I think it mentioned) of the loans, so a fraction of what he's put in to Scunny. It's possible he is in it for the kudos, which could be viewed as 'an ulterior motive'.

As for JF not having ulterior motives. Again, same standards apply. How do you know? I don't think he's in it for the money. But it's possible there would be some kudos/ego involved. Which is understandable, many of us fancy the idea of being the 'saviour' of or having control over our own football club (having long since given up on fantasies of playing for, or even managing ;-) )

What I meant is you can be sure Fenty’s motives are purely for the benefit of the club, whereas you can’t have the same certainty about Swann. He’s probably not up to anything but given he’s apparently been sniffing round at Blackpool and is more interested in horse racing, his heart may well never truly be in it. Which is more precarious for Scunny.

But surely if the loan is to a company that Swann owns ( Coolsilk ) then in the event of the club folding Swann will still get his money back because Coolsilk is a creditor to the club? I must admit I know very little about the world of finance but that is how it seems to me.
As far as the " kudos " aspect is concerned I'm not too sure about that either. Didn't he try to develop Gainsborough with a " vision for the future " but when things didn't work to plan he jumped ship? Even the fact that Scunnie receive money from a hotel he is involved with due to naming rights shows a degree of " feathering his nest ". I get the impression that he is a bit of a chancer and now that our Ferrous Friends are at the bottom of the Football League then I wouldn't be surprised if he " jumped ship " again.

I like that. 'Ferrous Friends".

Coolsilk are not a football creditor though so the chances of them getting anything will be affected by how much Scunny owe in transfer fees (not a lot I'd expect, but when push comes to shove and there's no cash...) and players' wages (which could be considerable if they start to fall behind.

With regard to the naming rights, that's money out from a Swann linked organisation to what benefit? Advertising. Not really feathering his nest.

The fact he jumed ship from Gainsborough to go to Scunny doesn't mean he's not after kudos - could be it's just more kudos running Scunny.

Anyway, I'm not here to defend Swann. I certainly wouldn't want Town to be in that situation, beholden to one man to that extent.

I somehow doubt that Glumford Park is very valuable, and so the club have little by way of assets to repay a £9mill debt. Hard to see Swann getting much of his money back if they went into administration.

The real question is how long will he continue to pour his cash down this particular drain? £90k a month. Wow, that's eye-watering. And it's not as if the investment is being rewarded on the pitch either.

For a start Jolley has had 18 months and all the players are is. He has had an excellent chance to do something in the game but I am not sure his strengths are in management. More boardroom than manager.

There would be plenty of managers out there who would want to manage Grimsby Town. The trick is picking the right one; not the one who gives the best interview, but the background checks, the style of football played and whether they can get a reasonable squad playing to their strengths.

There would be plenty of managers out there who would want to manage Grimsby Town. The trick is picking the right one; not the one who gives the best interview, but the background checks, the style of football played and whether they can get a reasonable squad playing to their strengths.


The hardest part Lew is that most of us believe this squad is the best we've had for a long time, a squad he's put together which makes me think that MJ is a pretty decent judge of a player, better known in the trade as a scout, but as long as I've got a hole in my fat posterior he's not a manager....I saw it last year and I'm seeing it again this season...

We went from like 11th place finish to 4th place finish in Hursts second full season, yes it stagnated later on but the Jolley is in his second full season and doesn't appear to be making equivalent progress.

Agreed it's a nonsense comparison, and stagnating in the playoffs still means being in the playoffs! (just saying)

My Fishy colleagues, its Saturday evening and once again time to bump this thread back up to the top again. As we speak we are still 1 point above them WITH 3 games in hand. After the shenanigans that have happened this week I only have 2 footballing wishes for this season now,1) we beat them both home and away, 2) we finish above them at the end. Simples.

Bad run, we've imploded to the point our points haul over the last 6 games is 1 point (lost 5 drawn 1), Morecambe who are bottom of the league and 5 points behind, their points haul over the last 6 games is 4 points (lost 3, won 1 drawn 1). We need a new manager and the board should not be dragging their heels on this, Limbrick is showing he can't motivate the players enough over 90 minutes and as soon as we go a goal down we don't do come backs anymore. This is relegation form something we have experienced before, we are carrying too many players who are showing they just aren't good enough. Confidence may be low but if we had enough players with something about them, then confidence comes naturally, the low confidence may be that a few of them have realised that when the going is tough there is nowhere to hide and certainly at least half the first team have been found wanting.

We've given and taken a fair amount of banter and abuse over the years, funny how you should say that when your ironbru message board locks out the casual browser and prevents anyone other than a Scunt from having an account.

Ok at the end of September, all was looking well, but in the intervening 11 weeks we seem to have scored just one league goal, which was against the team currently second bottom in the league.

Ah, its gaffa-gape.  Where is this quote about me being GT till I die or something?  Or did you just get it spectacularly wrong?

I reckon the gates are probably something to do with GY / Clee being double the population of Scunthorpe.  Just call me Carol Vorderman, but I think it might be something to do with it.  Similar reason why the Targers smash your gates out of the water.  Hull is bigger than GY / Clee.

Even after further cementing our dominance (15 years and counting) over you today, I can't be bothered with your stupid picture nonsense.  Keep up the job work bumping this little gem though!

Guess who's back, Steffi's back....you are a tool but not one I'd have in my tool box...as the saying goes....why don't you take your face for a sh!te and give your ar$e a chance as it would talk more sense...your obsession with all things GTFC is bordering on psychotic.......

Stevie, I bet you was a real bundle of fun last season on opposition teams forums when the mighty iron were dominating league 1.

Surely the measure of dominance is league position, and its been a decade and a half since you finished above the Claret and Blue Wizards.  A trifling cup match is neither here nor there surely Shirley?  

Oh what fun it is to see The Iron win away, hey!

Adults can generally recall events from 3–4 years old, and have primarily experiential memories beginning around 4.7 years old.

So on that theory you are about 18 or 19 which would explain why you don't even know that Scumthorpe owe their league status to us, we voted you into the league you never earned the right to play in the football league, that is a sad fact for you, sad face.

I'd like you to come back with some facts, since we got you into the league how many seasons have Scumthorpe finished above Grimsby, how many seasons have the scunts spent in what is the Championship compared to Town. I won't hold my breath.

Who is going to fund the Scunts when Mrs Wilkinson is fed up of her husband wasting her money.

Listening  between the lines to Hurst on RH last night I’d suggest Von Veen would be looking for a move if he gets to 20 goals this term. He’s clearly half decent but if reports are to be believed high maintenance like Hamill and the other kid who’s sat rotting in the EFL Trophy squad, I guess that’s what you get when you overpay reasonable lower league players to stay plying their trade in crummy backwaters.

I don't need to do anything to make me feel better as I feel great, I don't feel sad or lonely enough to go on a rivals board touting for friends, unlike you sad sacks. So sad you don't even see what is right in front of you.



A bit rich then Scunt, quoting facts that only portray you in a good light rather than the truth, we've only dropped like a stone since the current board have held onto the club like a limpet, other than that Scumthorpe was were players and managers we either didn't want or they needed game time went, Scunthorpe has always been the grave yard of Lincs, the place even stinks like rotting corpses.

There's no oil money, but to make out you are operating within your means is ridiculous, the minute Swanny and uncle Steve call it a day you are fcuked. Stick your head between your legs and kiss your bottom goodbye.

If anyone listened too him on Hullberside after the Cods game he was absolutely gushing with pride. However I fear he would not have fitted the

"According to Mr Swann Mr Hurst is going nowhere, as a result the gates will go nowhere added to the fact with more over complication our league position will do much the same.

I’m not one to judge managers on their post-match interviews - Buckley’s were usually terrible but the football was alright. However, it was hard not to notice the difference in style, outlook and approach when Holloway followed Hurst this evening.

Hurst was, as ever, in some no man’s land between grey and beige whilst Holloway was positively psychedelic in comparison, darting off on random tangents and just generally full of enthusiasm.

Incidentally, it occurred to me while listening to the post-match interview that Marcus Bignot played much of his career under Holloway (he signed him twice, in fact). It seems really obvious now that his attempted persona was just a really poor impression of the man himself.

This may yet work out horribly, who knows, but Ian Holloway is nothing if not unique. Accept no imitations.

Also listening to Sir Ian Botham who had one or two grumbles about the team selection/ style and in particular the dropping of "Kev" (Van Veen)....and adding what i thought was a thinly veiled barb " the manager sees them everyday so he must have his reasons" .

I’m all for opposing fans on here if they add something , banter , knowledge etc the Lincoln kid on here is fine BUT the scunt is just digging non stop at our demise ... hang on we employ a decent popular manager win a couple of games and the little sharp object doesn’t show anymore (lol)


Hello Grasserz mate - seen the table mate?

By "banter and knowledge" you presumably mean, mate, not pulling your typed nonsense, mate, to pieces mate?  Sorry mate - can't do it mate.

Only you lot could carry on with this thread after a managerial bounce had resulted in the thread title still being 100% wrong.

Factually correct my ferrous fingered friend but 2 games in hand could easily see those roles reversed. Let's see what the situation is like by the end of the season or even by Easter. Are you that confident that you will still be above us by those two deadlines?

Scunny unlucky not to win today by the sounds of it,

Hurst has blamed, the pitch, the conditions, the ref, a red card for them, a missed red card for Newport, spoiling tactics, the Newport's bench constant harrassing of the officials, 4 players have left this week, would like to bring replacements in but doesnt think the chairman will let him, changes are needed ........

glad to know he didnt get a thing wrong with his selection, change of formation to suit the oppositions style or anything like that.   ;D

But I am beginning to lose interest in them. I think we are header for better things while they are sinking.

Do they have the internet in Scunthorpe, just asking as there seems to be hardly anyone posting on the Bru.

Welcome to the busiest Football forum in Lincolnshire and the only ones crawling has been done by the Scunts, never heard a pip from you lot up the road since you were formed until we went through our worst period in our history and rusty ironing club some how won the lottery and climbed out of the bottom of the pond you occupied for most of your clubs history.

Our day will certainly come again, and here's why, you can't keep a club like ours down. We get knocked down but we get up again, because we are Grimsby Town. The only double likely to happen at Glumford park is if you give us more tickets we'll double your normal gate.

Bitter?  Not sure about that.  

Scunny fans towards GTFC - bitter.
Town fans towards Scunny - dislike, yes, but bitter, no.

Lincoln fans towards GTFC - extremely bitter.

Oh yeah, I agree with you, we've had to consign the rivalry with Hull as a thing from the past.  By doing that, Scunny is definitely our biggest rivalry nowadays in reality.  Hull are selling players for £20m, and we're feeding from scraps every season.

I used to know someone from Donny and he was shocked when I told him of our rivalry with Scunny - he thought it was just them, so it's interesting to hear you're not that bothered about them.

As for Lincoln, they seem to really despise us both, for some reason.  The word 'bitter' applies to them, even now they're comfortably above both of us.

So let's agree, neither Town nor Scunny are bitter - they just HATE one another!

I wouldn't say it is a soulless cess pit, our terrace is old school and was rocking in the glory days of winning League One and being in the Championship.  I nip on here every now and then as it interests me to see what is getting said by our rivals. Appreciate you saying you don't want to see us drop out the league, as much as we hate each other the world is a better place when we play each other, cracking atmospheres.    Regarding KVV, it is give or take. I recall John-Lewis ssshhing us when he scored at our place for you in the FA Cup. You lot would be loving it if it was one of your players doing what van Veen did.  Baffled by your manager Holloway's comments though, clearly absolutely triggered him. Be interesting when we play you at our place.  

Regarding The Sands Venue Stadium, it will always be known as Glanford Park to us. Was purely done for financial fair play reasons which as we are finding out, we are in a mess.

I've been watching Grimsby since 1972 and I think in that time we've only played Hull in league games about half a dozen times. We have drawn them a couple of times in The League Cup though (back when they were 2-legged games) and played them a couple of times in the lesser cup games.

We were rarely in the same Division, we were always above them until just after the turn of the century. I think the season we were last relegated from the 2nd tier in 2003 was the same season that they were promoted and they've obviously gone onto bigger and better times whilst we've been languishly in the lower divisions and non-league.

Would be great to get back that league rivalry again but whether that will happen anytime soon is anyone's guess. Ideally it'll be the season after next in League One.  :)

Wow, never thought I would be agreeing with a codhead, I'll drink to that later!  Regards to Donny, there is a rivalry but they seem more bothered about us than we are them. Grimsby and Hull has always being the one.  Rivalry with Lincoln too but not played them in a long time.

HATE is a very strong word for football rivalry. Dislike yes, but I could never hate anyone that I have never met.

I wouldn't say it is a soulless cess pit, our terrace is old school and was rocking in the glory days of winning League One and being in the Championship.  I nip on here every now and then as it interests me to see what is getting said by our rivals. Appreciate you saying you don't want to see us drop out the league, as much as we hate each other the world is a better place when we play each other, cracking atmospheres.    Regarding KVV, it is give or take. I recall John-Lewis ssshhing us when he scored at our place for you in the FA Cup. You lot would be loving it if it was one of your players doing what van Veen did.  Baffled by your manager Holloway's comments though, clearly absolutely triggered him. Be interesting when we play you at our place.  

Regarding The Sands Venue Stadium, it will always be known as Glanford Park to us. Was purely done for financial fair play reasons which as we are finding out, we are in a mess.

There's a difference between a'shushing' gesture to fans behind the goal you have just scored in and what Van veen did.  He actually scored at the away end, then, before celebrating with the Scunny fans, he ran over to the side stand to taunt our supporters.  I always smile when Town fans give some player dogs abuse and then get all upset when said player scores and shushes or cups ear to them.  I don't have a problem with any player doing that.  But Van veen was totally over the top.  If there had been a serious incident it would have been due to his provocation.  The guy is no doubt a good player, but IMHO is a pr1ck.  I suspect that he actually thrives on abuse (as some do) and personally would love to see him totally ignored at Glumford.  But I suspect that ain't going to happen.

He has the talent to perform in the Championship but in the past has being guilty of inconsistency and his attitude. You're absolutely right, he thrives off the abuse and Holloway's comments have just added fuel to the fire. I have no doubt if he scores against you again, he will go over to Holloway and dish it out to him and rightly so.

I grew up in Market Rasen where you either supported Grimsby or Lincoln and given our 71/72 season and a decade later our home grown player heyday the majority of my era are town fans. I started going in 1965 and was there when Scunny last won with what I recall was a Nigel Cassidy goal, I think a year later may have been the Rathbone & Welbourne sending off match and we needed a Stuart Brace equaliser well into injury time to get a 1-1. Again memory can be iffy but recall that Brace goal was Vernamlikein beating several players before slotting it home.

Anyway in Rasen nobody supported or went to watch Scunny or Hull so I never had a strong dislike for either side especially as tv in those days had football from Anglia Television so these were the teams featured if for some reason they weren’t showing the Norwich or Ipswich game.

Living in a village a mile outside Lincoln the local boozer obviously has a majority of Lincoln fans as there clientele but we have two Scunny season ticket holders who are both far too decent and honest it is very hard to take the pee, but I do my best.

If I were a Scunny fan at present my main concern would be Swann and how stable he is in his role and financial commitment. He wanted to achieve great things at Gainsborough but lost interest very quickly when he couldn’t get a new ground, was I understand then on the verge of joining the board at Lincoln before his last minute defection to Scunny.

Over the years have enjoyed the Scunny games as always that “hostile” atmosphere and in general we have done quite well winning more than we lose. Hopefully we get revenge in March and finish the season on our current high but if the last six weeks have shown us anything it’s how quickly your football fortunes can change.

To be fair to Ollie, he’s a bit embarrassed about what he said and has apologised. He does have a tendency to speak before he thinks, but I quite like that about him.

Do they have the internet in Scunthorpe, just asking as there seems to be hardly anyone posting on the Bru.

Welcome to the busiest Football forum in Lincolnshire and the only ones crawling has been done by the Scunts, never heard a pip from you lot up the road since you were formed until we went through our worst period in our history and rusty ironing club some how won the lottery and climbed out of the bottom of the pond you occupied for most of your clubs history.

Our day will certainly come again, and here's why, you can't keep a club like ours down. We get knocked down but we get up again, because we are Grimsby Town. The only double likely to happen at Glumford park is if you give us more tickets we'll double your normal gate.

The classic, bitter codhead response. Oh did you get knocked down as well, right in the doldrums of non league and I enjoyed every second of it.  Regarding attendances, we sold out our away end at your crumbling ground  and could have taken more to boost your gate too.  Regardless what happens for the rest of the season, at least we beat you in your own backyard for the first time since 1969. UTI



Bitter  ;D I would take our history and clubs potential over your rusty sardine bound Squad you can't afford now Mrs Wilkinson has pulled the purse strings.

I don't hate the Scunts, however the hatred towards Town from your neck of the woods doesn't compare to any hatred  or dislike shown by Town fans towards the Scunts and the reason for that is the Scunts for the majority of your history has been 4th division old money and in the main a place we used to off load players or send out reserve / fringe players. Scunny in the main has been insignificant to Town fans as Hull for my generation was always the derby game that Town fans looked for and no Scunny or Lincoln game has ever emulated the tension or passion both sets of fans showed in those derby games.

Welcome anyway and once you've given your head a wobble it will be interesting to see how the season pans out for both of us, I would wish you luck but to do that I'd have to shove 6 inch nails into my eyes and with what I am seeing at Town so far this season, I don't want to risk losing my sight right now  ;)

Argh Nigel Cassidy.  Heard a story about him many many years ago.  I was told that he was in a pub or club in Scunny on a Sat night. He was trying to chat-up and impress some young floozies.  

He said to them “Do you know who I am?”.  Then said that he played for Scunthorpe United.

Besides anything else, it is not exactly the same as saying you play for Liverpool is it?

It depends on age and origin. Scunthorpe for me because I'm a McMenemy babe from Brigg. In theory Lincoln should be THE DERBY both clubs were founder members of division 2 when Scunthorpe wasn't much more than a village. Scunthorpe being our main rivals is a bit like Corby Town being the main rivals to Northampton Town...

As the crow flies Hull is closest and for those older than me I can understand why that is THE DERBY. We could meet in a couple of seasons - they'd really have to slump to get relegated this but they've offloaded their best players and they could decline quickly. Fewer than 10k on last night - lowest attendance since the Boothferry days?

Oh for the days when you could clatter through the back of someone and the ref would just ruffle your hair and say that one is for free. 🤔.

There are many players from the 80s and even 90s who would be unable to make a living from the game now.

It's the conning that p1sses folk off. I think we can all agree that flair should be allowed to flourish without the likes of Norman Hunter or Chopper Harris trying to take your legs off. That said, players like Frank Worthington, Stan Bowles, Tony Currie, Charlie George did excite despite their unwarranted attention. Going back further, George Best was probably the single most exciting British football I've ever seen and he always guaranteed close attention of such defenders.

It's also shameful when you see players going down because their perm's been fractured, or clasping their faces when imaginary elbows are a long way away. It's not just conning the referee, it's conning their fellow professionals who they try to get sent off by their actions, and it cons the paying customer / fan who wants to see the best available but can't because of such frauds.

Bobby Cumming? Every day of the week for me. Nearest thing I ever came close to man love.

;D a great old joke that, I think a few of the younger generation will miss the comedy gold you just put up. For the younger generation see joke below, there are a few versions here's the one I remembered

A man goes to hell and the devil greets him. He takes him to a hallway which has three different doors and tell the man he'll have to choose one room to spend the rest of eternity in.

So he takes him to the first door and he opens it and it's the classic version, the evil-doers being engulfed by fire and brimstone. The man thought that would be pretty terrible to spend the rest of eternity and asked the devil to show him the second door.

Everyone in the second room are being devoured by wild beasts. The man thought that was even worse way to spend eternity so asks to see what's behind the 3rd door.

The devil takes him to the third door and in that room are politicians and they are up to their knees in dog excrement and drinking tea and eating cakes. The man thought that was pretty bad, but at least they could drink tea and eat cakes so he told the devil he chose the third room to spend the rest of eternity in. So the man, up to his knees in dog excrement, drank some tea and ate some cake. Then a few minutes later the devil came back into the room and said "tea break is over. Back on your heads."

I completely  agree about the conning of the ref and dropping and holding faces etc, but var seems to have stopped a lot of that including diving in the box. Var has a long was to go before becoming the finished article, but there is much less of the above. Not gone completely but much better than it used to be imho

Scunny’s population is smaller than GY’s but half our ‘catchment area’ is the sea if you draw a circle round the town. Draw the same sized circle round Scunny and it’s all land. I guess people round that way would rather go shopping in Donny than watch the Iron.

The money we have to spend will depend on season ticket sales, so on current feeling, probably yes. But money isn't the only factor in success, look at the teams that have been promoted and relegated in the last few seasons. What we currently have is a feel good factor and confidence, and that is priceless. It doesn't guarantee anything, but if we can keep good form and play this way until the end of the season, then I think next season will have a sort of positivity about the club that we haven't had probably since 97/98.

The most positive thing for me is that Holloway seems to have a good relationship with his players, like Hurst did, but also his reputation and personality make him popular with the fans too. Of course, it could just be the honeymoon period, but players wanting to sign for him multiple times and at a lower level than they could play at and probably on lower wages suggests to me that we are heading in the right direction.

To be fair, GTFC were only prevented from going into non-league in 1955 by re-election through the old boys network and the boxes of fish we used to give to visiting directors. ;)

Some of us are old enough to remember your real glory years.  ;)

Barry Thomas, John Kaye, Ken Jones, Hubbard and Brownsword ....... the latter’ s penalties.

Tom Taylor, Graham’s dad, reporting as Poacher in the Football Telegraph.

Ah yes ..... jumpers for goalposts and all that. ;D




The glory days that my Grandad fondly recalls to me. Jackie Brownsword and Barrie Thomas the notable ones. He said he never truly forgave the club for selling Barrie Thomas to Newcastle, we'd have reached the top flight with him.  Graham Taylor grew up not too far from where I live, a footballing legend that was proud of his Scunny roots. You see, us Scunny fans aren't all bad you know!

Scunny’s population is smaller than GY’s but half our ‘catchment area’ is the sea if you draw a circle round the town. Draw the same sized circle round Scunny and it’s all land. I guess people round that way would rather go shopping in Donny than watch the Iron.


You have Immingham, Killingholme, Healing, Cleethorpes,, New Waltham, Humberston, Louth. Will be some I have missed off there too.  Can't deny you have a bigger population, i have never understood the gloating about attendances towards us. If only attendances made you a successful club eh?

I'd rather have 3,000 die hard supporters there than have it full of people that only go when we are doing well.

In that case though, you have to accept you are always going to need a sugar daddy and hope he is a true fan with deep pockets. Even so, he will only be regarded as a saviour when things are going well, ask John Fenty! ;D

The money we have to spend will depend on season ticket sales, so on current feeling, probably yes. But money isn't the only factor in success, look at the teams that have been promoted and relegated in the last few seasons. What we currently have is a feel good factor and confidence, and that is priceless. It doesn't guarantee anything, but if we can keep good form and play this way until the end of the season, then I think next season will have a sort of positivity about the club that we haven't had probably since 97/98.

The most positive thing for me is that Holloway seems to have a good relationship with his players, like Hurst did, but also his reputation and personality make him popular with the fans too. Of course, it could just be the honeymoon period, but players wanting to sign for him multiple times and at a lower level than they could play at and probably on lower wages suggests to me that we are heading in the right direction.


Interesting response that, very well written. I'm annoyingly jealous of what you lot have got at the moment.  I imagine you're feeling confident coming over here and getting revenge for what happened before Christmas. You're right regarding transfer budget, as i mentioned previously on here - Lawsy did it on a shoestring budget and so did Adkins.  The days of Sharp and Keogh or Hooper and Hayes up front feel like a long time ago.   :(

Population of Nth Lincs is 172k, Nth East Lincs is 159k. SUFC has a comparabl population in a 20 mile catchment, but alot of the population support someone else - Grimsby, Lincoln and Doncaster - clubs with a much longer football league history.

You like the last 15 seasons, tell me BIron since you were voted into the league by us how many seasons since 1950/51 season have you been above us, you won't though will you  ;D

Scunthorpe since 1950 have finished above Town = ?

Another of your ferrous fingered brood, Stevie Cammack, who used to post on here quite recently , used that description for your team. Unless, of course, he was an original  Iron's supporter  ( West Ham ) and he got on the wrong message board!


Oh the original poster, I'm not familar with who he is apart from our club record goal-scorer with 110 goals. Unless that is Mr Cammack himself posting?   ;) It's each to their own isn't it how they choose to behave, however I like to be able to communicate with you lot intellectually as well as dish out some banter from time to time. I am glad i am welcome on here.

In 1950 when the club was elected to the league it was called Scunthorpe And Lindsey United which gives an idea of the intended catchment. In those days the average gate would have been a lot lower than GTFC.

Incidentally in the re-election year of 1955 the GTFC gate for the derby game was nearly 20k and for the return at Scunthorpe over 15k. United did the double over Town. :(

All of them clubs you have mentioned are bigger  places than us. However, all them clubs you named have all disappeared out of the football league in modern times haven't they?  

We have remained in the football league since 1950.  I fear that status will come to an end within the next few years though if we aren't careful.  This summer is  vital.

Christ, 15k gates. I could only dream of seeing that. Most i have seen was 9,000 odd when we played United in the League Cup.

I remember being at the Everton game in 1979 when we beat them 2-1 in The League Cup at BP when there was over 23000 in the ground.

Those were the days. The season of our last Championship winning team, 40 years ago this season.

The first two games I attended at BP over Christmas 1957 both had over 17k for Div 2 fixtures with Liverpool and Charlton on 25th and 28th Dec. We won both games. In between on the 26th Dec Town lost 3-2 at Anfield. Three league games in 4 days!

And what would travel have been like? Still the modern player has it much harder with those light balls, less fixtures, no tackling from behind ( or from anywhere in most matches ) luxury coach travel or fly to games.

Remember going to a Forest v Man Utd game in early seventies and when we got on the London to Cleethorpes train at the old St Marks Station in Lincoln all of town’s players were on board following a game at Brentford.

They would maybe have had a coach to Liverpool, though there might even be a train on Boxing Day in those days on the main Manchester line. Footballers were not the only people who worked over Christmas. My uncle was an engine driver at Wakefield and they would go down to the sheds and light the firebox and do the oiling even if they were not due to run that day.

Its the population in the wider catchment area and history of the club that is material to overall support, not just the population within administrative boundary of the town or city. On population Burnley (73k) is smaller than Scunthorpe (82k) and Scunthorpe is smaller than Morcambe and Lancaster 110k. Even Scunny can muster quite a few more fans than Morcambe. I'd suggest more people in Morcambe and Lancaster support Burnley, Preston and Blackpool than support Morcambe. I expect there will be a  fair few who support Carlisle as well.

So what you’re saying Limerick is that Scunny are a little club because they have a short history? 😉

Scunny may have a smaller catchment area for supporters, given the bigger places on the outskirts of Grimsby/Cleethorpes but half of Scunny’s catchment area isn’t in the North Sea which is part of our problem!
