Grimsby: BSaD opinion

Fish (x5); Cold; Grim; Singing (Fishing); The Wind

Previous encounters
Rarely classics, it must be said, even if our most recent encounter was significant in that Peter Kennedy's goal confirmed our improbable play-off place. Lots of nil-nil draws in the wind and rain that merge into a soggy blur, with one mammoth 6-3 tonking in the middle...

Last season
A twentieth place finish is a little bit finer than the Mariners would probably have liked, as their failure to win since early March almost cost them.

Next season
The Grimsby side has changed very little since we were promoted the season before last. The Mariners could probably do with a strong start to arrest the downward momentum gathered at the end of last season, and looking at the squad it's not obvious where the goals will come from. However, there should be enough quality in the squad to keep the Mariners up a little more comfortably this time.

How to annoy a Grimsby fan
It will inevitably be absolutely freezing when we visit Blundell Park - the time of year is simply irrelevant when the ground is ten yards away from the North Sea and there's not so much as a wind break between you and the North Pole. So, turn up in shorts and berate any home fans not doing likewise for being "soft Northern ponces".
