What does he actually offer? A lot of people say he's our natural goal scorer, on what evidence? A handful of sidefoot finishes and some penalties?
For me he brings very little to the table, lacks strength, intelligence, pace and probably the biggest one for me is his aggression of which he has very little of, i'm not talking squaring up to oppos or kicking lumps out of people but just running hard and having the desire to get there before the defender.

I couldn't agree more, offered nothing yesterday. People keep banging on about starting Ross, why? He's always offside, showed no composure at all yesterday and fluffed his lines twice.

After the game a bloke in the bar offered a suggestion which I laughed off at first but actually the more I thought about it the more it made sense... Try (if we can) to bring in 2 or even 3 loan strikers and then loan Hannah out for a month or 2. Let him get some games, hopefully bag a few goals and return an improved player. Our only problem will be who we can bring in...


"Falls to Arnold... Arnold! That's it! Thats it! He's sealed it! Grimsby Town are back in the football league!!! Just a minute to go and Nathan Arnold makes it 3-1! Look at the scenes behind the goal! Look at the relief! The agony is finally over!!!"

Hannah was always at his best with Neilson behind him though, in that respect Ross has been unlucky to not get a decent run in recent weeks while Neilson was on fire. Yesterday due to extraordinary striker injury misfortune he got a chance but apparently Scott had a forgettable game.

I do understand partnerships on the pitch are vital and i agree that ross has probably played his best football for us with scott up his bottom but that has only been on a handful of occasions.
This doesn't change the sort of player he is for the majority of the time and i don't quite understand why people seem to tolerate his lacklustre performances which there are genuinely more of.

Did he not have Neilson behind him for most of last season as well? He was no better than any of the forwards we let go at the end of the season today.

It is very unfair to say that he doesn't put the effort in and his misses yesterday could, quite conceivably be down to lack of match practice. Where I think he is sadly lacking is in his awareness of things around him-hence his repeated off-sides.
As for side footed goals I'd have settled for them coming off his backside yesterday!


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

his effort is half arsed, he never runs hard, doesn't battle well and doesn't work hard enough for space which means he's marked easily or he strays offside.
As said previously, i don't understand why people tolerate it from Ross Hannah? They brush it off as he's not match fit or Scott Neilson isn't playing well so thats why Ross isn't? WTF?

We could loan Ross out to a lower league club to get some confidence ,

Somewhere like Boston,

Oh just a minute, they have got 2 strikers scoring goals,

He will never get a game there either.


        I  would like to add all my posts are my opinion only I do not know anymore than any of you                   
                                31 years in Suffolk but  Grimsby Born and Bred.
                                         63 years following the Mariners

I've always called for Hannah to start but he was absolutely dreadful. I still believe a lot of it is that Hurst had drained his confidence over the past year.
