What formation would suit Hannah then?

Bar his loan spell, he's played in a number of formations and excelled at getting caught offside in every one.

Sam is right on the money for me.  Hannah offers nothing.  He can't hold the ball up, can't link play up, is pretty poor in the air, shows average pace* and for me isn't actually that great a finisher**.   I guess he's at least added a grafting element to his game this season, but we could have kept Southwell on a lot cheaper wage to do that (and probably more).

* and ** Frustratingly he has shown in glimpses that he has got a quick turn of heel and can be clinical in front of goal.  Classic example of this is his second goal against Lincoln in the Lincs Cup Final.  

Not seen anything of this Hamish lad so not going to suggest he's better than Hannah but I wouldn't be disappointed to see Ross go in January if it means we can bring someone in better suited to our system (i.e pace and/or power) or even if it meant we kept Parslow/Pell.

I keep hearing people say Hannah is a clinical finisher. Is he? I've not seen any evidence of that for about a year now.


"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!!!"

I remember seeing Hannah before the friendly match against Mansfield at home in July. From 25 yards he was curling the ball into the top corner - one after the other, very consistent. Unfortunately, the only consistency he has shown in matches this season is his quite remarkable ability to be caught offside on the break. In the 12 games he's featured for us this season he's scored two goals. I imagine those who are suggesting he should be given a chance are the same people who suggested after one, two or three games that we should drop LJL and play Hannah and Pittman together. Personally, I wouldn't mind if Hannah was to leave in January.


We've got Jason Pearcey, number one, we've got the best team in the land...

Agree, wouldn't mind seeing Hannah leave in January IF it meant we got someone else in with pace and power. Hannah offers very little.

North has signed for Shamrock Rovers so that puts an end to any rumours of him coming back. CDAJATL? :p

Not a Hannah fan myself, but away at Kiddy earlier this season he was outstanding, playing up front on his own and did a good job of holding the ball up using both strength and skill. I suppose he must be like Colbeck/MacKreth only turns up once every few games.

I look forward to seeing Hamish on the bench on Saturday.

He might even get 5 minutes on the pitch.

Think people are being very harsh about Ross . I said weeks ago that the style  and tactical jigsaw that PH trys to implement doesnt suit Ross . The style has change since Ross arrived but Ross hasn't been able to adapt . Having to chase and collect the ball from the half way line and picking up scraps from Lewis or on for bit parts , it's not the way he plays .
Would Ross be contacting his agent for a move ?  The further down the pecking order he gets the more likely it will happen .

Totally agree. He would score in a 4-4-2 as he's proven before.
