Grimsby are a cracking little club and are the sort of team that English football really needs to keep.
Fingers crossed for a positive result for you...

Up the Mariners, except of course when they play Pompey, Good Lock...

A small club like Grimby need help. They need a new stadium to help subside the loss of revenue. Grimsby are an established 1st Division side an i have lots of respect for them. Why should we have another club facing extinction?
Build the new ground.
PS i don't like Blundell Park anyway.

What is soccer coming to, Premier has more money than they can ever spend but true football fans supporting real teams put up with this type of crap year after year. for gods sake give them the ground

Preventing progress and improvement is a national crime.

It's time to look to the future. No forward looking club is can expect to achieve it with antiquated facilities.

Whilst studying for my H.N.C in construction in 1994, we were told to put a package together
for a commercialy viable project. Our team of six decided to design, finance and construct a new ground
for the Mariners. By coincidence our choice of venue was exactly the same as the present proposals.

If the club is to survive at its current level or above a new stadium is essential. We need to be able to host bigger away followings (and hopefully improved home support as well).

I know how it must feel being on the brink of extinction, being a Pompey fan, and it's not nice. All the best

We understand how you feel as we have been trying to get a new ground for at least 10 Years,only to be blocked by local council, public and government enquiries,then administration.Finally work on our new ground should start early in the new year.

Seeings as we'll be taking a proposed 10,000 to Old Trafford, a new stadium will definately be required to house all these new Mariners 'fans'.
Seriously though a new stadium is essential for this club to survive. Its about time that the local authority led the area out of the dark ages.

Common sense has to prevail. All football clubs promote the town in which they are based. Business people, across the spectrum benefit from having a local, football league club. Local employment is boosted. Sponsors gain more business, interest is drawn from distant areas who recognise the name of the town because they hear it every saturday on the TV and radio. Football, from all clubs brings so much to a city, invest in the club to reap benefits across the board. The bad old days are gone, and modern day football is a blessing and bonus to any town.
If naturalist concerns are the order of the day, review the reality. In WINCHESTER, Hampshire they claimed that wildlife would suffer from the road changes that were made in introducing the M3 extension - the reality is that wildlife more than adequately adapted. the area has developed to the benefit of both nature and man. Unless there is an absoloutely rock solid reason not to build a new ground ignore the NIMBY's and give the goahead to a development that will benefit many more than will regret it.
Good luck Grimsby, Good luck board of enquiry, come up with the right result.
"Play up Pompey"

Being a Pompey fan i know the only forward is to build a decent modern stadium ,the benefits outway the cost ,it would also update and enhance the profile of the Club/town.

just give us the stadium and stop all this messing about with all these rumours etc... just make up a decision, are we getting it at greatcoats or shall we start looking for a new place????
please sort it out the sooner we get this sorted the sooner we can start building/finding a new place

Councils should back their local clubs !!! shame on them if they do not ... A Portsmouth Fan

I may be a Pompey supporter, but the potential loss of any club is something I do not want to see.
