He's always described by York fans as 'steady' and dependable' and that's what he's shown us I believe.

Think that's a fair point.
Hope me agreeing with you again doesn't make you feel over-patronised.

Chuckle. Well that's good to know. I'm not feeling patronised!

So very sorry.
Maybe I should have told you to intercourse off instead.  


That's not very nice is it.

My XI must be good; Abdul copied it and SamtheMariner only made one change

I do like the versatility within the squad; not just Magnay and Parslow, but also Arnold, Neilson and Pittman, which means Hurst could name an XI and if we aren't sure of the likely formation, what chance do the opponents have.


UTM.



What a time to be a Grimsby Town Fan!

Just for the record chaos it was a genuine show of appreciation because there were very few comments about Parslow in "Just back" and being in the Ponny, I couldn't gain any personal assessment on his performance in that game.

If I came over as patronising I can understand but tbh think you've simply assumed the worst.
No worries on my part though, I say let's just move on...

That's a bloody good point IMO.

I'll go...

.......................McKeown
........Nsiala.....Pearson(c)..Parslow
Mackreth......Clay......Brown.......Arnold
........Pittman..John-Lewis..Hannah

Subs: Thomas, Bignot, Disley, Pell, Neilson.


Now come on 80s, after our run of form even you must be starting to see the virtue of retaining a winning side (as much as possible) and a consistent formation. 4 at the back, 3 in the middle, 2 out wide and LJL up top for me.

McKeown
Parslow
Thomas
Nsiala
Pearson
Disley
Clay
Pell
Arnold
Neilson

Well I couldn't really see what formation we were playing but the OS says:

"Daniel Parslow took up a holding midfield role behind a central quartet of Neilson, Craig Disley, Pell and Nathan Arnold, leaving Lenell John-Lewis as the lone striker."
http://www.grimsby-townfc.co.u.....#Hgv5tMEpScUlsq6R.99

So assuming that's true and you're putting 2 out wide, I guess you might be changing it too.

In any case, (and I know some will disagree), I think Hurst would be silly if he took no account of the opposition when choosing his players and formation.
To be fair we've been pretty successful playing different formations this season.

Another very tricky selection dilemma...

According to Hurst Altrincham are a "good footballing side" who "dominated the 2nd half" in their recent defeat to Telford.
Don't think we should underestimate them - I agree they're quite likely to try and raise their game.
Not just cos they're playing GTFC but because teams often look for a response after defeat.
Being at home, would expect they'll try to put in a decent much improved performance.

Can't assess how bad Magnay is and whether he should be included.
If Hurst says he needs a rest, maybe we might be better off biting the bullet and resting him for this one ?
But if Hurst decides it's best to play him, I'd support him and his decision regardless of the outcome.

Others will know better than me whether Parslow did well as sub on Tuesday (Maringer says "adequate" ? )
In any case, judging by Oxford, I'm not 100% convinced with him at RB.
I know he can "do a job" there (and also did well v Oxford reading the game and keeping his passes simple)
But as a CB by trade he doesn't look too nimble against quick passing sides and for me, looks better suited to defensive midfield.
Whether Bignot is any better at RB is debatable but he seems tactically astute and offers you something going forward.
So if Hurst was to play Bignot, I'd support that decision.

With Magnay not 100% anyway, what I would do is go "in for a penny in for a pound" regards "resting" players after a hard game.
For me, it all boils down whether to risk it with either Magnay, Parslow, Bignot at RB or risk "going for it" with 3 at the back.
  
Am I right in saying Thomas is playing through an injury anyway ? (thought I heard that but may well be wrong)
Brown had 60 mins yesterday and needs to come back at some point anyway.
Clay is rested ready to return.
Who knows if Disley will be jaded or not after Tuesday.

Altrincham might raise their game but maybe we can hit their frail confidence and snatch an early goal or 2 ?
Whether to keep it tight or go attacking from the off looks a very tough decision !  
In any case we all know it's the type of "winnable" game we'd all love 3 pts from to keep the pressure on Barnet.
Should we not bag a point it's not the end of the world (but there's 3 up for grabs)

I'll go...

.......................McKeown
........Nsiala.....Pearson(c)..Parslow
Mackreth......Clay......Brown.......Arnold
........Pittman..John-Lewis..Hannah

Subs: Thomas, Bignot, Disley, Pell, Neilson.


So let's get this straight:

After a sequence of excellent wins based on not conceding goals, you'd change the formation of the team to one we've never played, with 3 at the back, including the right-footed Danny Parslow at left centre back. None of these defenders need a rest according to you (although others players apparently do need a respite) so they shouldn't be 'rotated' apparently, despite all playing a full 90 minutes on Tuesday. Those players who played very well on Tuesday - Disley, Neilson and Pell would all be dropped (oh dear, can't see them being happy about that after those performances) and cohesion and morale will drop through the floor. Arbitrary doesn't cover it. Incredible might.
