Who wants to go to Grimsby....or Cleethorpes?

Especially as we are going to get thrashed!

Fish and chips, a splodge in the sea after a mile walk through mud flats to get there (unless you go down to Humberston) donkeys on the beach (as well as the pitch) a train ride down the prom. A visit to the smallest pub at the end of the narrow gauge, a journey to the game with trepidation but that tinge of hope we all suffer from and then a miserable journey home when you’re hope has been stamped into donkey shite, why wouldn’t you want to go? At least you’ll be able to get a ticket, I’ve got zero chance when we go.

Cleethorpes has had some gentrification and is now almost 'posh'.

I want to believe it's deliberate cringe, what with that bit at the end.

I want to...

Probably the wrong Fred, but fits here in terms of tinpottedness if not L2.

The following has just appeared on my Facebook feed (perils of knowing Scots people):

"Arbroath vs Dundee - Caird Suite Hospitality Correct Score Runner-up

No one goes home empty-handed from our hospitality and after her table had correctly predicted the game's correct score, but lost out in the "Bobby Linn bin" draw, Lois Caird received the runners-up prize, a signed Fray Bentos Steak & Kidney pie, from Bobby Linn."

I've not attended a tinpot trophy match since the academies were invited. I think my last trophy match was an exciting 5-3 loss at Brentford circa 2013.

I’ve been to one tinpot trophy game in my life (zero since academies, natch). We lost 3-1 and I got into verbals with our captain John Mackie. Happier times.

John Mackie has just been appointed as manager of Romania FC. They play in the Southern league apparently.

Does that count as tinpot?

You feel sorry for the Crawley youth players trying to make it in the game as these lads have had an opportunity handed to them because they muck about on YouTube.

To be honest. If it gets us a few quid in then I can live with the embarrassment.

As long as we don't have some numpty who can't play depriving a decent kid a place on the bench/pitch.
