Amazing how things work out really isn't it, my biggest concern for Saturday is whether Clay will be fit or not.


Made me chuckle!  At pre-season, I didn't even think he looked like a footballer.  Now he looks third or fourth on the teamsheet!



I remember being pelted with ice by the Norwich fans during the Milk Cup match, do you?

Quoted from Maringer
It's not tinkering if you have to make changes due to injuries!

With everyone fit, I'd expect to see the following formation:

                McKeown
Bignot  Nsiala  Pearson  Magnay
Neilson  Clay  Brown  McLaughlin
             LJL  Pittman

If Pearson and Clay aren't fit, we'll see Doig and Disley coming in, I'd have thought.

Alternatively, perhaps McLaughlin (or Disley) in for Clay with either Mackreth or Arnold coming in on one of the wings.

If Pearson isn't fully fit, I'd rest him to allow a bit more time to recuperate. Doig is a capable defender as long as he's not playing week-in, week-out.


100% in agreement with this.
The 11 listed, in that formation, is our best line-up in my opinion, where possible we need to avoid deviating from it.   I feel for Paddy McLaughlin having to play out on the left but he's doing a great job out there, reminds me of when Frankie Artus was given that role during the unbeaten streak we went on three seasons back.  Quiet and largely unspectacular but does a great job for the team.   Also it gives us the option of switching to 4-3-3/4-5-1 when needed (Neilson pushing further forward).

When properly fit, I'd actually prefer to see Arnold in the team rather than us playing 3 central midfielders though Paddy is doing a decent job out there at the moment.

Unfortunately, I don't think a partnership of Brown and McLaughlin has the aerial strength to make it as a central pairing. We'll generally need either Disley or Clay in the middle to win some headers though if injuries dictated a Brown/McLaughlin combination, I'm sure they would do OK. It is nice that, for the first time in years, we've got a bit of a conundrum with which central midfielders to play!

Just need to see Arnold and Mackreth pushing to get into the team now.

Mackreth was a great player. Then he signed for town.
Must be one of the quickest players in the league if not the quickest.
He needs a good run in the team, similar to another player last season.

Tbh I don't think he's as quick as people think, he's just got little legs that move fast. If you actually look at the ground he covers in a sprint it's not that much. A little bit like when Darryl Clare was breaking through here, everyone said how fast he was but he wasn't.

Most have put Bignot in there side. Did they go to Lincoln???????
Wouldn't even have the bloke on the bench.
What people also have to remember is that Bignot was kept out of the side last season by Sam Hatton FFS    


In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.
