"No disrespect to the likes of Grimsby..."

sunday 07th march

Who is the hardest sportsperson in the world?

From a BBC Sports Forum.

"Gary Childs, former Grimsby Town player, does it for me. I remember once seing him on the training field retrieving a ball from waste land behind the goal."

Not only was he stung eight times by nettles, but also received a violent gnatt bite. He just carried on as normal.

From the Wolves Rivals Site.

Wolves supremo Sir Jack Hayward nearly called time at his beloved Wolverhampton Wanderers , stating "I'm 80 in June and I'm not going again to Gillingham, Rotherham and Grimsby."...................

Crap Towns


Crap Town/village: Grimsby

Its only claim to fame is that it has the highest concentration of lottery winners. They need something to look forward to poor buggers.

TV Choice

From The Times.

Live Football: Arsenal v Newcastle
Sky Sports 1, 7pm

'For Friday night football fans reared on a diet of Scunthorpe United and Grimsby Town, the chance to watch two of the Premiership's big guns locking horns at Highbury should be a real treat........'

From The Times.

Believe the hype and it's the greatest league in the world. Fred Dinenage, TV personality and Portsmouth director begs to differ: life in the Premiership is not all it's cracked up to be. How? "I find the referees are inconsistenet, the players are unsporting, and the clubs are not as friendly as they are in the Nationwide League," he said.

"I mss the comradeship, the Yorkshire pudding and gravy at Rotherham, the fish and chips at Grimsby and the black pudding at Walsall." However, he adds, injecting some objectivity, "Obviously it's vital we stay in the Premiership for financial reasons." Obviously.
