Dominated, but we didnt win. And thats what matters, nothing up front, had chances but we didnt take them. A team really we should have beaten easily but we didnt. Its a shame, a big shame, but the clubs not going anywhere. I feel for paul and the players but this just isnt good enough. Didnt like the "hurst out" chants. They help noone, i know how gutted i am by whats going on, but what struck me about it as i walked away tonight, maybe , just maybe. We arent very good. Night all

Never looked like we were going to score tonight.  Playing 4 5 1 with Lenny as the lone striker was never going to work, and should not have used that formation at home anyway.  Subs made far too late yet again, then went 4 4 2.

I hope Wrecscum have a bad day on Saturday, or they will tear us a new one

As above , toothless lenny was poor he has the worst first touch ive seen ,his second touch is almost always a stretching tackle to try and rectify his terrible first one . Makreth played as well as ive seen in a town shirt .
Clay MOM defence looked solid but Devoid of a threat beyond the 18 yd box .

So disappointing, we looked pretty good in the middle third, keeping the ball well, making pretty patterns, working it out wide and getting it into and around their penalty area but sadly that's where the wheels came off. No killer through balls, barely any quality crosses, not enough midfielders running behind their back four and a striker with zero confidence who hasn't got the goal scoring nouse to create something from nothing. We're just not ruthless enough.

I liked our shape tonight, it helped us keep the ball and press their back four. Ultimately though we don't have the centre forward to play that role, and that is only one mans fault. Thought Aswad looked good tonight and provided us with more balance, and ditto that for Magnay. Mackreth and neilson worked the ball well and gave their full backs a tough night, but poor crosses cost us. Clay and brown worked hard and dominated the game, disappointed with paddy though, finally gets a chance in the middle in a game he should have bossed, but he wasn't in it enough.

Definitely time for a managerial change, can't see it happening though, and who would come in? More questions than answers at the minute.


"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!!!"

Cant fault the effort as it was there, worked very hard and with the formation while dominating the midfield it left us short up top.....Makreth very wasteful with crosses all night, had his fullback on toast but struggling to think of a single cross he put in than gave someone an opportunity.
Should he have gone with that formation? myself i dont blame him for trying as the last couple of 4-4-2 games have been flat and for large parts we looked good but it left LJL isolated, tried to change it with a double substitution but we lost a bit of impetus with that......thought he could have thrown another sub on late on as a statement of intent.

Should he go now?  Well not on tonights game in isolation but repeated failures to beat mediocre but organised sides, the squad he has assembled just isnt balanced enough and the complete blind faith in LJL (who personally i thought played ok tonight) to be the difference between winning and losing all starting to tot up..

Quoted from immariner

Plural? I think we only made one real guilt edge chance which the keeper saved very well from Paddy.

Was somewhat surprised at the decision to play Lenny up front on his own. I didn't hear what was said on Humberside prior to the game but I understood that Neilson was going to play in the space just behind Lenny? If that is the case then for the first half it failed miserably. LJL was guilty of most of the things other posters have said about him but in his defence he was totally isolated in the first half and as a result was bundled off the ball too easily.
MacReth was awful first half-weak in the challenge and unwilling to take his man on for pace. Second half he played far, far better and was involved in just about everything of an attacking nature but like others was let down by his final ball.Magnay was excellent (again) and Clay showed what we missed on Saturday.
Defensively we were relatively untroubled which gave Aswad chance to get forward to good effect on loads of occasions especially in the second half. He combined well with Neilson and bearing in mind it was his first game since the middle of August didn't appear to tire. I thought he was Town's MOM.
I wonder if those singing Paddy's praises are still doing so after his mediocre performance tonight?
Though the subs might have come on a bit sooner but to be fair neither of them looked like having an impact in the 20 minutes or so they were involved.


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.
