    Worst Refereeing Decision You've Ever Seen

    Well, quite. The injustices will even themselves out over time, and they are all ultimately meaningless anyway, in the grand scheme of things.

    Worst Refereeing Decision You've Ever Seen

    The worst I can recall was because of weakness rather than just being plain wrong. It was an FA cup game in 2015 against Chester. We were awarded a penalty, and I'm fairly sure the ball actually got as far as the penalty spot before the Chester players effectively just argued him into changing...

    Worst Refereeing Decision You've Ever Seen

    Hahaha I remember that game very well, you battered us. Agree, it was a shocker, and our second was the softest goal I've ever seen. Finished way past 10pm as well after Tom Marshall broke his ankle. I remember walking to the car listening to the disbelief in the voices of the Grimsby fans.

    National league North 2021-22

    I've never seen Sutton. Ceesay is interesting. When he first turned up he looked very raw and unfinished, like he could be anything. Unfortunately, I think he just looks raw and unfinished. He looks ungainly, but he's faster than you think. I saw him have maybe 2 great games for us, the rest...

    DarkSithLord - I hear Alfreton have signed Ritchie Sutton on loan from us, and that you have also signed Yusifu Ceesay?

    Just seen Jim Gannon is the new Hyde Utd manager, interesting.

    National League Fixtures - 30 and 31 August

    Say it every time we play Halifax, bogey team for us for a while now, think it's 7 without a win.

    National league North 2021-22

    Coming here and reading about Andy Owens and Craig Hobson is causing me to re-experience the shittiest Alty side I've ever seen, the 2016-17 shower. Next, someone will say Danny Hattersley has signed for them.

    Johnston was consistently very good and occasionally unplayable at Alty, I find it quite sad what's happened to him.

    Stickied Confirmed Signings

    Yes, I was under the impression that Welsh Premier League is NLN level. Some ex-Alty players in there too over the past few years, and lesser lights at that.

    Who's got an ex-Grimsby Town player in their squad?

    We've signed another one, Joe Bunney. Reading about the circumstances of his leaving Grimsby, all seems somewhat odd.

    National League opening day fixtures - 21/08

    I went there in 1985. Very big, uncovered thing? Don't recall the toilets, I was 16 with corresponding bladder control.

    National League opening day fixtures - 21/08

    This guy reminds me of that very short-lived Kings Lynn fan earlier in the year. I think it was Kings Lynn anyway, definitely Norfolkian, older man. Can't remember if he got banned or left of his own accord. Exploded on to the scene with many posts, very quickly descended into name calling.

    2021/22 NPL Premier Division

    Andrew Dales played for us on loan for a couple of games last season, seemed half decent then got injured and disappeared. Think he was a Mickleover player before his Scunthorpe move. Meppen-Walter to Radcliffe is another interesting chapter for him
