There is a big strong forward  at barrow just the type the tinkerman is after, he's banging them in, maybe Hurst should look at him instead of bringing in an inexperienced kid.


Is this the same forward that no other team in this league thought worthy of a contract, sorry to say I think he has now found his level

I also think Hurst only had Jennings and Bogle ln mind and when they didn't come off it was back to the drawing board.

I don't know anything about the new striker and I certainly hope he does well during his time here even if he's cover until JP returns.

Anyway talking about unknown players out of all the strikers we have can anyone put there hands up and say they knew them before they signed I.e.

Tony Rees (I never heard of him but was awesome at holding the ball up and bringing others into play with his death flicks)

Neil Woods (never heard of him but scored some very important goals for town and one of my favourite strikers)

Clive Mendonca (ok i heard of him before he signed for us.  Was top scorer for Rotherham before signing for Sheff Utd)

Gary Jones (I remember him from his days at Notts Forest or was it Tranmere)

Michael Reddy (remembered him from his sunderland days)

Michael Jeffrey (nope never heard of him)

Lee Ashcroft (nope never heard of him)

Garry Birtles (well of course nuff said)

Laurens Ten Heuval (erm who)

Mikael Antonio Currier (never heard of him)

Bradley Allen ( yep heard of him mainly due to his brothers)

Jamie Forrester (never heard of him)

Martin Paterson (never heard of him)

Martin Butler (yeah heard of him during his Cambridge days the c#@k)

Michael Boulding (never heard of him)

David Nielson (never heard of him)

Liam Hearn (never heard of him)

Lee Peacock (remembered him from his Bristol City days)

Please feel free to add any you didnt know.

After thinking about this, why does Hurst think this lad will do a job for us at 19,

12 games early this year for Stockport on loan and scored 1 goal,

BUT

He does not have the confidence in Walker and Winfarrah enough to give them a run in  the team.


Think our Manager basis his youth policy on the Alan Hanson maxim of "You'll never win anything with kids"


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.

Is it just strikers? How many of our signings generally is anyone that familiar with? The vast majority I have to look up to see who they are.

Same here Rob unless they've played against us.

   Agree with you apart from the following,.

Michael Jeffrey (nope never heard of him) I wish we still had never heard of him.

Lee Ashcroft  I followed WBA a bit when Buckley went there, funny but Buckley did not rate Ashcroft enough to give him too many games Then he paid £500,000 for him, YES GRIMSBY PAID £500,000

Neil Woods Living in Suffolk knew from his Ipswich days.

David Nielson  My wife's cousin was his school teacher in Skagen Denmark, Just before we signed him he scored a hat trick for Copenhagen who's manager was Roy Hodgson, We were on holiday in Denmark at the time and our cousin told us he taught him at school, I said " is he related" as my wife's family name is Neilson, no he replied he was black and adopted by a Danish family, I spoke to David at the side of the pitch when we played Norwich in the league and told him I was related to hid old school teacher in Skagen, A short while after he had left us he was on holiday in Skagen and when he saw his old teacher he said " who was that old git at Grimsby who said he was related to you .

I'll give you big, but I don't remember him being that strong.


Big(ish), a bit half-arsed and gasping for breath for most of last season.

To be fair, these recent seasons are the first time we have had any continuity with the squad for years, there haven't been that many changes and i stand by his signings being good.

I realise you don't see many games and I imagine that is why your opinion seems to go along with whatever way the wind is blowing on here.


I think if you count the new players we have signed this season it is 7 plus loan signings which takes it to over 10,

Plus if you read all my posts ( which you seem to do ) you will find I have my own mind and I say what I think,

I have often stood up to the ones calling Fenty  and I have not called for Hurst to be sacked just yet I said , give him 4 more games then look where we are,

I am sorry if my views to not agree with yours but it's better than putting my head in the sand like you.

Why is his head in the sand? We've signed 6 players this season and had 4 loan players which isn't that many really, especially compared to previous seasons. There are 10 senior pro's remaining from last season which if you think squads aren't that big down here, that's quite a lot.
