A new striker that is.

Come on Paul and John, a third of the season gone already and still no news on someone who can fire us up this league. Considering our defensive capabilities, an attacking player or two would go a long way to rounding off a promising squad.

Or is he just waiting for Pittman and Arnold to get fit?

Trialist tonight maybe?


In a neat little town they all call Grimsby
Apprentice to a tradeI was bound
And many's an hour's sweet happiness
Have I spent in this neat little town.

A sad misfortune came over me
Which caused me to stray from the land
Far away from my friends and relations
Never Betrayed by the black and white band.

Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black and white band.

All getting quite frustrating. I know it's been stated in the paper that it's not a budget issue but I'm not sure I'm buying that personally. Oates will be on peanuts if we're paying any wages at all. Hurst has never had any issues bringing in players before, so why are we having so many problems signing a striker? In my opinion the budget isn't there for a suitable striker.

If he is waiting for Pitman and Arnold to get fit , We then have been conned , Pitman will never be fit for long , he is to injury prone, and there is some doubt that  Arnold wants to be here , [ taken from what people have mentioned on here ]. There must be a decent striker out there that is not getting a game , so why have we not found him ????

I don't think the budget is the issue. PH has said that he won't sign anybody just to fill a place and he is looking for a striker who fits the bil,l as he sees it. This is surely the right approach. AB only used to bring in players who he thought would suit his style of playing. There might be loads of strikers out there but surely we want somebody better than what we have and able to add something to the squad.

I'm sure the money is there but after our bad record of bringing players in during the season over the last 2 years , PH has to get this one right because i suspect that until we have a good cup run there wont be any more money  ( Falling gates are not helping the Budget ).


]Remember its just my opinion  ..... It might not be true ............
