Not dissecting all of his interview but two things ;

he said he wanted to be positive with his selection thats why he had Pitman, Arnold, Makreth & LJL starting.....my query is does that mean he acknowledges he is not normally positive thinking in his team selections?

states that at 3-0 he knew the game was over and made changes with Tuesday in mind...i dont like readily accepting defeat...i dont like parting with cash to watch the manager "give up" in essence...

Not over bothered about being out of the competition as we werent going to win it but felt the team selection, formation and positional roles left alot to be desired today and were at the root of the poor performance and result.

League is the priority but a shame to go out handicapped by the managers approach.

Sometime a manager over thinks things,

Hurst does that a lot,

Just settle on a formation and tell the players go out and do it,

All the players will know what their role is,

If one player is injured the player coming in knows what to do,

If you keep changing formations not only every game but during a game,

It's no wonder some players look confused.

If "positivity" means we're overrun in certain areas and get beaten, I'm not so sure it's always such a good thing.

Then again I'm not the one complaining about defeat.

Haven't heard his comments but we DID go out with plenty of attacking players, it was just that they SEEMED to be asked to play in cautious roles. I thought we started with 1 up top with Mackreth on the left, Pittman right and Arnold nowhere in particular.

Not sure why his selections per se were wrong? Just the shape IMO.

I had no problem with him making substitutions with an eye on Tuesday when 3-0 down. Showed he'd given up? Showed he knew at that stage which was most important, Lennie on  a yellow too, Disley only passed a fitness test on Friday so ensure we have as many to choose from for the Halifax game.

Hurst is too cautious by nature and now we will be back to 4-5-1with a holding midfielder for the rest of the season.

Still don't know what that formation was about today. Wasn't 4-4-2 for sure.

I am not sure they were asked to play in any particular role, very disjointed.  Makreth left wing!?! He has shown in his appearances so far that he can hardly cross it with his "best" foot never mind his standing foot, he looked devoid of any belief in what he was doing highlighted by his shooting opportunities. Pitman looked like he was tasked to be doing a job on the right wing which is a bt of an ask for a striker starting his first game in a while...left Parslow exposed constantly.

I had the opposite reaction to the post match interview to 80's in that I thought it was a waste of everyone's time. Mind you, Tondeur's questions are so asinine that it would be difficult to think anything else. I really wanted to hear Hurst identify shortcomings and say he expects more. I wanted him to explain the positioning and tactics but it just didn't happen. I don't believe that anyone has learned anything.

Terrible day at the office.  They wanted it more.

Get up, dust down and go again on Tuesday.  If the Halifax game sees such an abject display, then we ask questions.

Hurst hads a very DRY sense of humour.............. he loves dicking the press around , i dont blame him .
He is paid to make the desicions ! today he got it spot on imo resting players !!  The starting line up /shape was a tad baffeling but we were beaten by a much better side!


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

I was quite intrigued what Hurst meant when he said to tondeur that he knows what he's going to ask next, or words to that extent. I don't think JT knew what he was on about. Just got me all curious.


"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!!!"
