How so? Nobody has yet been able to explain to me how people who claim to love GTFC can refuse to go to a game because someone they don't like is the manager. When I go to B.P. it is to support the XI who take the field. There have been literally 100s of comments on here regarding the finances of the club yet people are prepared to deny the club money over some grudge against the manager. Not attending may eventually cause Mr F to wield the axe but at what cost long term?


No grudge against the manager, just a grudge against paying to see the sort of crap served up in several home games since the New Year.

Would think his position is untenable now.


No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.

What happened with Coyne?


Tried to get him to reduce his wages that were agreed in his contract,when he refused he was publicly slated.


Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day,teach a man to fish and you give him an excuse for him to escape from the wife and kids for the weekend and drink lots of beer.

Possibly we will see a statement from JF sometime this week that he has confidence in the manager.

If so we will probably have a caretaker manager in charge by next week.

In good times (few and far between recently) the leading figure in any organization soon seeks plaudits for his pivotal role in that success,after ten years plus of what by any measure can only be seen as failure should we expect of our "Main man "throughout that period? When all said and done the manager is only a cog although a crucial one,but if the direction from above is flawed then the job in hand becomes more difficult even impossible.Do the CEOs at large companies survive  consistent bad results ,bad decisions etc?We all know the answer to that one.If he fell on his sword would things get any worse? I for one don't  think so.

Fair point but in business nobody would come in and save a failing, loss making company who were stagnating. Also that business would have no customers. Grimsby have a benefactor not a CEO. We also have a core number of fans who turn up however bad the 'product' is.

Football clubs do need to be run like businesses but they are very different.

Quoted from The Old Codger
General malaise is very disturbing and only one man is capable of doing anything about it which, bearing in mind who it is is equally worrying.


If we have a fan base of 5000 half of them spoke very loud and clear last night.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.
