Question of the Week
What should happen to the EFL Trophy next season?
By: Richard Hubbert
WELL, it soon comes round, another Saturday creeps upon us as the Mariners look to pot some much needed cash through a decent FA Cup run - something they havenâ€™t had for a few years.
Their opponents, however, come in the shape of QPR who visited Blundell Park at the start of last month in the league and they literally stole all three points in the last kick of the game. Town should have had at least a point out of that game, when they dominated much of the second half, only for Rangers to snatch a last-ditch win. Town fans and players alike were gutted after that game and will be gunning for revenge, which should make a decent ingredient for a well-contested cup tie.
Probable Starting XI's
Now, on a more light hearted note, we sift and explore the world of football memorabilia. Every week we will be looking at every team Town meet and seeing what weird and wonderful things you can purchase on the web for your own pleasure...
This week, we have a Unique Kevin Gallen Babygrow, available on Ebay at a starting price of Â£7.95! I mean, why should parents bother with Mothercare or BHS when they can fork out more money for a babygrow with the name of a player who failed to make the grade at Barnsley and Huddersfield on the back of it? Apparently, Town are bringing out an "Iffy Babygrow" for Xmas, and when the child puts it on, they grow into the size of Iffy Onoura. Scary!
Last Time Out
Well, if you canâ€™t remember last time then you have a poor memory! Town met Rangers a month ago at Blundell Park in the league, when Town went down 1-0 to a last minute Eric Sabin goal.
