There wasn't an 'us versus them' thing until people acted like they did when we won.

Not this one.

I was just pleased that we won in the first place!

There wasn't an 'us versus them' thing until people acted like they did when we won. Acting as if because we won everybody who had criticised the team in the past had wanted us to lose and 'two fingers to them'. It was almost as if being right meant more to them than winning the game, incredibly sad.

There's no hidden agenda here - I want Grimsby Town to be a successful club in the Football League, operating on a sound financial footing within a better stadium - I'll even forego sexy football as long as we get out of this league.

My problem is that we are currently nowhere near achieving any of the above and I don't see us doing so in the near future.

Who's have ever thought we would be doubting our club against a team like Halifax.
Where did it all go wrong?

Whatever happens people on here always overreact. Lose a couple of games and there are calls for the manager's head. Win a couple of games and suddenly people expect us to storm the league. Some holes you get birdies, some you get bogies, it's just the nature of sport....

Any points tonight would be a good result but it's not going to be decisive whatever happens,

I'd predict this;

The people who want Hurst out will not get too excited, use the same line as last time which was a general 'Yes, good win, let's not get too excited yet.'

People such as 80's will mince about the forum, act like we've won the league and tell everybody how right they were about everything. Dig up any post criticising Hurst and start forcing 'humble pie' down peoples throats until we lose again when suddenly they'll disappear into the wilderness.


Can just picture all those self-righteousness mincers typing their rebuttal at your post.  (only kidding)


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.

just a thought, i assume you all were there on saturday, to say it was rubbish is an understatement, a very noticable improvement once Disley went off and Jack came on, manager is to blame ,now out of his depth. Hope we win tonight but injury problems ready for an excuse

We had better hope toto and Pearson get their act together tonight otherwise it will not matter who is playing up front. Oh and while I am at it  Macca needs to get his finger out too.

We lost twice to them last season without scoring a goal. They play a bit like Lincoln with long throws and set pieces but are better at it than Lincoln. They also have a fantastic home record.

Easy win for us then.
