NATIONAL LEAGUE NEXT SEASON

NATIONAL LEAGUE NEXT SEASON

Postby ALAN COUCH » Mon May 03, 2021 5:54 pm

The one fixture that I will look forward to next season is our home match versus Grimsby Town.
The reason:-
I have only ever seen Grimsby Town once and that was in Season 1947/48 when believe it or not they were then playing in the old First Division. The match I saw was their League match against Arsenal. I remember it well because Arsenal won 8-0, yes eight nil. Can we do the same.
Unfortunately, Grimsby finished 22nd (bottom) and were relegated. Arsenal, meanwhile, were becoming Champions.

Fascinating. I see the great Shankly managed Grimsby Town from 51-53 and wrote in his 1976 autobiography - "Pound for pound, and class for class, the best football team I have seen in England since the war. In the league, they were in they played football nobody else could play. Everything was measured, planned and perfected and you could not wish to see more entertaining football". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grimsby_T ... ason_(1997–98)

Wealdstone vs Grimsby Town, it's happening folks.

I'm guessing the great Denis Compton was playing?

I met him at Lord's about thirty years ago and was genuinely in awe.

Yes, Worruz, Denis Compton did play in that match. In fact, he scored 2 of the goals. The other 6 goals were scored by Jimmy Logie (pen.), Ronnie Rooke 4, and Alex Forbes.
Denis's brother Leslie also played in that match. Leslie was, of course, the wicket-keeper for Middlesex in their cricketing days.

Surprisingly, both Grimsby and Southend do not want to be relegated to the National.
They have made a proposal to the EFL that they should not be relegated due to there being no relegation from the National to the step below. :roll: :roll: :roll:

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Fish will always try to wriggle off the hook.

Stevenage managed to do so last season but I would be surprised if they succeed.

Never say never in the dubious world of football though.

They've sort of got a point but I'm not sure what else could happen?

If they win this one rendering the NL a completely pointless waste of money over the past few months every NL board member should resign and all the club's should take legal action to recoup the money pi ssed away

And if the principle of no relegation from league 2 is upheld, then there should be no relegation from league 1, the championship and Fulham survive.. etc

Just can’t happen
