Falkirk FC & Grimsby Town FC

Post by Gladstone on Thu Feb 17, 2011 4:55 am

Mind I asked what these two had in common? This relates to Supermo's The funny thing about Falkirk Stadium... post.

Yet no-one answered that Falkirk FC and Grimsby don't play in their home towns. Grimsby's ground is in Cleethorpes, and Falkirk's is in Grangemouth. Exclamation

Every day's a school day they say...................... yet not really for me. cheers

I lost faith in football when Clyde moved to Cumbernauld. Well, sort of.

Where are Rangers going to play when the taxman swings the giant wrecking ball through the club deck?

I'm hoping they move to Larne or maybe Kilwinning.

The taxman is last in the line of creditors if they go bust so I am afraid they will not be allowed out of their misery as easily as going into administration. I am afraid they'll be left with a payment plan that nearly cripples them - but not quite.

It is definitely in Grangemouth, yet.....

Falkirk FCs official site

http://www.falkirkfc.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=2546&Itemid=199
gives a post code of FK2 9DX.

Type in Falkirk FCs postcode FK2 9DX to Google Earth....................


Type in Falkirk FCs postcode FK2 9DX to http://www.freemaptools.com/uk-postcode-map.htm
And get this....


Falkirk FC have been allocated a Falkirk postcode somewhere in the Bog, I can only guess why!
Mad

It should be a postcode starting 'FK3' but somebody clearly didn't want that.......................

They are a bunch of fannies.

Claiming to be '38' is stretching it a good bit more..... Up Yours

snake! Laughing

You've been faced with a painful fact, and you're rejecting the reality of that fact. You are insisting that the fact is not true despite what is overwhelming and irrefutable evidence. Now you're engaging in distractive or escapist strategies to reduce stress and help you cope.

Just accept it.

Doodling is not normally accepted as evidence of anything unless its accompanied by drooling and wearing your trousers inside out

In this instance I prefer to believe The Royal Mail and I call her Majesty The Queen to the stand.
