Yeah there was some spouting ridiculous criticism for us signing a load of non league players, and instead we should be targeting league 1 players.

Well for those people I hope you are enjoying the performances of those league 1 players we signed this close season.

People saying 4-1 flattered Mansfield, not in the slightest, Mansfield coasted this game as our players gave up long before the final whistle, no fight, no guile as the Town fans chanted flipping useless.


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

Will he, how do you know? I assume you mean Akeem?


Yes I was getting a bit confused ,

Can I start again,,?

Bignot signed Akeem Rose that's right isn't it ?

I am only going on reports that he could be a very decent player.

Well what a shambles that was, I didn't even think Mansfield were all that great but they didn't need to be, spineless, gutless and passionless.

You could argue that their 2 pens were relatively soft but needless silly challenges in the first place.

I didn't share the view of many after the Crewe game, I thought we was decent ish but that's all, certainly not anything to get excited  about and I thought Hooper was half decent, that's all, but yesterday Hooper was abysmal, he shows little effort and he has slightly more ability than effort but even that isn't enough. Woolford I know isn't match fit yet but I can't see him making a massive difference when he is, very slow when in possession. The Old Codger will be pleased to know that I thought Berrett was our best outfield player but he'll be upset to also learnt I thought he was only average still, the others were even worse.

We are a very very poor team with a distinct lack of quality in every position and yes I do predict we are in a relegation battle.

Makes me wonder how we got like this, well let's review the situation.

Firstly you got to look at Slade and Wilkinson, both has extensive contacts and experience at higher league but the past couple of years both has been on a downward spiral which shows little or no sign of slowing down.

Then we need to look at the players they have signed.
Ben Killip- untried rookie who Luton didn't fancy as their 3rd choice keeper.
Karleigh Osborne- looks alright on first showings admittedly but 2 games in the past 2 seasons is extremely underwhelming, that caused by injuries or otherwise it is concerning.
Nathan Clarke- vast experience at a higher level but by all accounts has struggled these last few seasons and Coventry fans didn't rate him one bit last season and I have yet to be impressed by him at all, past it? It certainly looks that way.
Paul Dixon- again vast experience at a higher level but by the sounds of it there wasn't exactly a queue of clubs after his signature, Dundee fans reckoned he was a shadow of his former self these past couple of years, supposed to have a terrific left foot but his crossing is average at best so far, downward spiral? It would certainly seem that way so far.
Mitch Rose -one of the best summer signings so far, but he still has glaring weaknesses in his game, Summerfield is much maligned for giving the ball away but does he do it anymore than Rose? I'm not sure.
Dembele- looks a real deal admittedly but again untried and his end product looks lacking and it doesn't look good when our best player is a 20 year old who has less than 10 games experience in football.
Kelly- when Port Vale released him they all thought he would drop down into non league but yet we gave him a 2 year deal with Wilkinson proudly saying how he'll take us up to the next level, he is a fairy, a coward and a chicken.
Woolford- again extensive experience at higher leagues but done nothing these past few leagues and again nobody else wanted him did they, could come good but on paper pretty uninspiring signing.
Jaiyesimi (spelling) looks half decent so far but again untried with virtually zero experience.
Hooper- again when Port Vale released him their fans seemed sure he would drop down into the conference but no Slade gave him a 2 year deal, lazy, isn't interested with average ability.
Jamille Matt - looks half decent on paper, but can he produce? We'll have to see.

Add all that onto Berrett and Summerfield etc, our squad looks poor on paper and on the pitch.

lol Ginny! We do have some bright spots though, Sam Jones, Collins, Mills and yes I'm going to say it Mckeown are all decent. Jamie Osborne is a class player and will be back before Xmas and hopefully Asante proves to be the player we are all hopeing he is. That's more than we had in 2009/10, so we may avoid the worst.

Let's hope some of Slades signings can really step up to the plate.

Apologies to Ginny but it is so hard to say! We looked ok away at Chesterfield,which on paper seemed to be a very difficult game first up.

Against Crewe we weren't too bad either; they were unbeaten, one of our bogey teams yet they looked rubbish and we did ok.

Against Derby and Doncaster we were ok, but in the rest we have been very poor. We are either a new team yet to fully gel, or we are a poor team which will find it hard. I suppose we need another 10 games to see which one it will be.

Not as good as i'd hoped, but not as bad a some are claiming. Early days yet and there were promising signs against Crewe i thought. Don't look relegation material to me, despite some of our obvious failings. We've got some good players in the wings and there is more to come from this bunch in my view. I'm not looking for the noose just yet.

Good summing up for me and on most of the players exactly how I see them.
