Weather good then  Smiley

Are any of them called Nobby?



I'm afraid to ask!

Was going to walk to the ground along the path by the estuary.
No chance of that.

Saw on the way in that Blundell Park has some proper floodlight pylons poking up into the overcast sky.
Never really noticed that before and its also apparent that Cleethorpes looks a lot better at night.

Will take a point.

4 league wins on the trot would be marvellous, though.

No Anderson for a while - hamstring. Hopefully Woolery doesnít break down again in the meantime.

Good indicator of our credentials today. Avoid defeat would be a booster.

Have been staying in London for a few days, so took 6.30 out of Kings Cross, change at Doncaster.
Set alarm for 4am.
All good fun. Sometimes.

Grimsbys current form is been DWLLLWWDL and their home form this season so far is LDLLLWDWWW.

Against Grimsby we have only 4 wins in the past 13 games, in 22 games at Grimsby we have lost 14 and only won 4 times scoring 21 and conceding 38 times.
Since 1968 our record up on the coast has been LLLLLDLDLLLWLL with only the 1 win in 14 games and that came in 2003.
In the words of Reg, too many variables with weather, team selection etc to reliably call this, our record there is frankly terrible in the last 50 years with just the single win.


Imponderables, which are more my thing, aren't quite the same as variables. Imponderables sprung up v Carlisle at the CG.... these are factors, we can't really see how thye'll impact in advance due to the unusual circumstances.  In the Carlisle case the imponderables caused an unusual scoreline.

We know much more about how this one looks, so a win would be a surprise. The interesting imnponderable is this is Wellens, only second away game, could the style of play he's trying to inculcate actually work and be effective at Blundell Park when so many other decent Town sides have tried and failed?

Luke got 4 wins in a row, not long after Lingy quit, and he got the job.  As we've seen string a few together and you look up. Same happened that season we got to March with a sniff of the PO's having been in trouble when Cooper was sacked.

We had a televised game v Wigan and got stuffed.... it was downhill for Luke and us from then on.

Grimsby are in a right relegation battle though. and they are playing a team 5th in the form table compared to 15th.

last match the away team beat a team in the playoffs. last match the home team lost to Cheltenham.

interesting that their home form is the exact match to our away form. if you removed the name swindon from the fixture and just looked at it as team A vs team B. Team B winning wouldnt be much of a suprise as you suggest

It's a grand old team to play for, It's a grand old team to see, And if you know your history, It's enough to make your heart go whoa-oh, We don't care what the other teams say, What the hell do we care, For we only know that there's gonna be a show, And the Swindon Town will be there....

I think almost every Town fan would be TBH, difficult place to visit at any time, even worse with our awful record up there.
