Grimrob for starters


Utter rubbish. I have never said I was happy. My consistent line is we have a manager and a squad who can reach the top 5 in April. That is the project we embarked on in the summer and we should see it through. If we fall short then we review the situation in the summer. I would say a  lot of supporters broadly take this line. What we have is a small number of people with extreme views flooding the forums with one point of view to give a false impressions of the balance of opinion, you see it all the time on the Internet.

I would gladly walk through the gates, pay double, and shake him by the hand and tell him that I was sorry for questioning his ability to get promotion. Is it going to happen though? Even Grim Rob is backing us to lose![/quote]

I backed us to lose based upon a stats model I wrote compared to the betting market. That same stats model is suggesting to back us to win tomorrow - the bookies odds are too generous it says.

Who exactly are the "we" who embarked on a "project" to reach the top 5 in April Rob? Not sure too many of us feel included in that "we" because in fact "we" would have liked an ambition to finish at number one and accept a playoff place only as a consolation prize. Therefore "we" can't see any reason for sticking with a "project" that looks as though it could be already on the verge of missing its modest target.

Another who seems to think he is a better fan just because he will go no matter what happens on the pitch.

Not that i have to justify to you or any others but gtfc have had my money and support all over the country for as long as i can remember but the lack of leadership from the chairman to the manager has finally taken its toll on me.

I find our position unacceptable and many others have had enough too , some will still attend some wont but for me until john acts i wont give another penny to watch the absolute dross we get served up he seems to have had a long enough crack at it.

just because you or some others will still go please don't make out you are in any way more of a fan than me.


How can people spit their dummy out saying they're not attending anymore and not expect criticism?

I don't like what I'm seeing at the minute either but it's never stopped me going before and I can't see it ever doing so.

I'm not saying I'm a better fan at all, just one that absolutely loves going to BP no matter what.


"Falls to Arnold... Arnold! That's it! Thats it! He's sealed it! Grimsby Town are back in the football league!!! Just a minute to go and Nathan Arnold makes it 3-1! Look at the scenes behind the goal! Look at the relief! The agony is finally over!!!"

"we" refers to the team you support by convention. Top 5 includes the one automatic promotion spot.

I do wish you would stop persisting with this argument. It is not a small number of people. I know dozens of Town fans and most of them want Hurst gone and are not happy with the dire football on offer. None of them post on this or any other internet forum.

Hurst has won 16 games in 44 We have won 4 out of the last 10 games. That is not the stats of a winning manager and is not just a recent thing. It goes back for months to last season.

Agreed I think some people have their heads in the sand. I'd say a fair amount of fans now are wanting a change which is down to many reasons...

I would say the majority of fans are not happy with the situation,with a significant number of them wanting Hurst out.

This makes tomorrow's match a turning point for Paul Hurst,it is a must win match for him.Hope the team responds accordingly.
