Good interview, has a little dig at the doubters and can you blame him? But at the end of the day it's what he says to the players that matters not what he says to the press. He clearly gets along with the players as so many of them re-signed in the summer.


What was good about it? JT didn't ask about Arnold or why Dizz is preferred to Paddy. PH moans about fans having scapegoats whilst he seems to have some of his own.

A reasonable and completely sensible interview. Nothing controversial to talk about (Nsiala shouldn't have been booked, apparently) and not much information as to whether or not any of the injured players will be back for next weekend.

What the heck is going on with Arnold? That's what I'd like to know.


I saw him outside the ground chatting away to another supporter before kick off. He looked reasonably content? I honestly think he's just been unlucky with injuries.

It's clear that Paddy wants to play in the centre, but at the minute he's behind Brown, Clay and Disley. It's a shame because the fans can see he's a good player. I can see him remaining a bit-part player for the rest of the season, and then being released in the summer.

He's never been given a good run in the side, in his favoured position. He's in and out, on the wing, on the left of a midfield three, then at left back. He'll never be able to find some rhythm and consistency when he's being used like that.

Still, I'm sure Hurst will say it's for the good of the team.

He can only answer the questions he was asked, and I am sure he would be happy to give you answer to those questions. I was interested in the answers he gave about the new players and why he had brought them to the club mainly.

I prefer Paddy to Disley but when you are up against a physical battle in the midfield then I would have Disley in there just for the fact he won't get bullied off the ball as much as Paddy and he wins a lot of headers in that centre mid area. We all know Lincoln and Halifax are both physical teams so that is probably why Hurst opted to put him in there and Tondeur commented on Kidderminster's height in there team so that is probably why he did the same today. I wouldn't be surprised to see Paddy back in the squad next weekend as Steve Burrs sides are known to play football on the floor which will suit us better. Also Paddy cant play in a 2 in centre mid as shown last year, he doesn't have the energy, legs or strength to play there in a two but in a 3 it offers more help and protection along with a 5. Some people will say we should be playing to our strengths and not be worried about others but we have to show respect to our opponents otherwise they will find a way of getting points of us.

I agree that we've been a little unlucky with the injuries. However, the failure to get more than 3 strikers on the books come the start of the season (Connell excluded) was a bad mistake.

Good to see Oates doing well today. Wonder if he'll get a start next game?

You say Paddy can't 'play in a 2 in centre mid', but how do we know? When has that ever really been tried? We tend not to play a 2 anyway this season.  You feel that he doesn't have the 'energy, legs or strength' to be able to play that role, but can we say that Disley does? You'll see a lot more 'legs' and 'energy' from McLaughlin than you will from Disley. What does Disley have over Paddy? Answer  - more experience and better in the air. That's it. Every other aspect - they are equal or Paddy is better.

Yes. His reasoning for Parslow, ie to cover injury and potential suspensions (Toto) made me think and also he reasoned why Oates didnt start, all feasible and well put i thought.

Whilst I can't believe that someone has managed to turn a perfectly balanced reasonable interview into an anti hurst thread some interesting points . Disley left me distinctly underwhelmed today, yet his headers and safe if slow passing was preferable to the ten minutes by paddy which showed me exactly why he's not in the team.seemed slow immobile and he's patently unable to tackle or defend to the same level as Disley clay or brown. My guess is that he's a luxury player, a bit like Boshell. He needs time to be good but at this level you're not allowed time. Over a year in and I've still to see him put in an above average performance
