Re: Spare a thought for Grimsby Town

Bizarrely, used to be one of my favourite away days out: train trip, amusement arcade, micropub on the station now, fish n chips, a beach, and an OK away pub not too far from the ground. That said: still shudder thinking of the 6-5 defeat on Halloween, horizontal snow as I got off the train before t...

Re: Today is the anniversary of Ashley Barnes 1st Burnley goal

It’s bad but is there any less leg room than Old Trafford? There are some really bad ones, particularly where seats have been bolted onto terracing.
