Quoted from Maringer


Why? Last I checked, you don't win any points for the content of your pre-match interviews. Especially imagined ones!

As has previously been noted, how many managers have you ever seen who talk up their own team and claim they are much better than their opposition before a game? Pretty much none is the answer.

I find the continuing theme of taking digs at Hurst for his (pretty normal and banal) interviews really bizarre.


Good points Maringer and I agree. I'm not really that interested in hearing if Hurst can 'talk the talk'. I would probably consider it insincere and artificial if he suddenly started doing that, but I do think that Saturday's game gives him a good opportunity to 'walk the walk', as it were. Actions speak louder than words and home victories build promotion contention. As long as Hurst's team think they're better than Chester and then act like they are by intimidating and beating them, then we should be happy.

IMO Hurst gets far too much criticism for what he says (or what he doesn't say), but I do think his tactics should reflect more emphasis on a 'let them worry about us' approach, especially when we're at home. I thought Chester looked useful and it will be a tough game, but they shouldn't fancy coming to BP to play a team in form in front of a good crowd. I don't want to hear Hurst cockily pronouncing that he intends to exploit that, I just want to see him do it.

Quoted from MyDogsThoughts
Chester is a Roman city with almost completely intact walls around it's old centre. There are some lovely 'Real Ale' pubs both inside and outside the aforementioned walls. The railway station is a good walk from the centre and a long way from the football ground which is half in Wales at the back of a large industrial and retail park.


i'm staying there for the wrexham game , always do when there's a game on in the vicinity, beautiful place.

I would get Jack Mackreth to run at his full back Roberts who's 35 mackreth could have a good game saturday, Rossy Hannah up front I'm hoping the more game time he has the sharper he will get, Paddy in for Disley Chester are a passing team so i would swamp them in midfield with Brown, Clay and Paddy with Scotty Neilson in the free role.

Are you saying it's not just about 3 pts but how we go about it ?
What if we DON'T act like we're better but still end up winning ?
Not trying to knock you (have already agreed with a positive approach and think you make some good points), just interested to hear your thoughts...

I'd seriously consider that formation too.

I was asked for my thoughts on Chester? No one mentioned a football game, home or away.

Brown, clay and paddy in midfield, hannah up top with neilson free to roam, Where is macreth fitting in to this formation? Not knocking but i'm picturing a three in midfield with two strikers and neilson the link so struggling to fit an out and out right winger in there? Or is paddy wide left and neilson in the hole in a 4-4-2? Or a 4-5-1 with paddy left and neilson centre to roam?


I was there, the day Bradley Wood scored a 35 yarder!

From the black and white striped shirts
To the fish in the sea
You'll hear us singing
Coz we are Grimsby.

You won't hear us crying
But you'll hear us shout
Coz we are the Grimsby
And this is our chant.......... Grimsby! Grimsby! Grimsby!

Can't speak for fiveallive but thought he meant...

..............Hannah
Neilson..................Mackreth
......Paddy...Brown...Clay..

i.e. when Neilson roams about, Mackreth can drop, Paddy shifts left.
Same thing for Mackreth, Neilson can drop, Clay shifts right.

Sure fiveallive will confirm what he meant though.
Perhaps a "Team for Chester" thread is a good way to kill 2 birds with 1 stone.
