Haven't  been on here today due to no phone reception but reading many posts it was a p1ss poor performance and defence were poor. The defence I would think everyone would agree has been good this season ( goals conceded is excellent) although personally I am not so sure on Toto but is part of a successful defence.
I believe we should have an away tactic with Lenny leading line but at home we must be more positive and go with at least 2 out and out strikers.

Quoted from GrimRob


We're second favourites to win the league with the bookies (that's every firm offering odds) and second favourites for promotion. Now I'm not rushing out and backing us but if at the start of the season someone offered me that we were second favourites at the end of November then I would have snapped their hand off. If you really think the bookies are wrong (which seems a bit weird as you are a supporter) then I suggest you lay us.


Genuine questions Rob. What did the bookies have us down for the last few seasons? Did they call the previous few champions and play off winners right?


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Quoted from Lincoln Mariner 56
Same here but I stopped attending after the Southport game and vowed not to return whilst PH remained in charge. Not particularly proud of my stance and recent results were starting to make me question if I was right, however, the content of my brother's texts at half and full time mean I will be staying at home Tuesday as well.

Keep hoping PH will change his approach for home matches but it appears not. I hope we can get out of this league but to do so our home form has to be addressed.


'Vowing' is a bit much but as far as I am concerned, if Grimsby Town are in the Conference (which I accept we are after 5 flipping years), then that is not good enough. Second is not good enough, first at the end of the season will do. And then, there will be no open top parade, no town hall square heaving with supporters, just GTFC fans able to lift their heads without shame.

The most frustrating and disappointing aspect of all this is we have all been waiting for Barnet to have a indifferent spell this is now happening but because we are even worse we are still losing ground.  This is not the promotion wining run we need FFS Hurst get the fecking hair dryer out. WE NEED TO GET OUT OF THIS LEAGUE it is dragging us down. Feck the new ground Fenty concentrate on helping Hurst get a decent striker in. Barnet WILL hit top form again soon and I fear we may not catch them which will be a failure big time,

COME ON TOWN WAKE UP.

I assume you mean at the start of the season? Last few years Luton have always been clear favourites. We've normally been in the top 4, the clubs the have got promoted have often been way down in the betting. Their odds reflect playing budget more than anything I think.

Home record P11 W5 D3 L3

That is only a 46% win percentage and we have lost 27%  of home games already. Not good enough for promotion.

Sort the formation out Mr Hurst and stop blaming the fans. He is lucky nearly 3500 turn out for every game.

I have never been so bored as I was yesterday watching that rubbish. Hang on though Southport game, Dover game etc etc.

We may be 2nd in the league but we are far from convincing especially at home.......again

Probably reflects the markets when people are putting their leagues accumulators on at the beginning of the season too.  There'll be people with no knowledge of the lower leagues picking the Portsmouths and Lutons of the leagues because they've heard of them.

In a nutshell, the games weve won/drawn/lost have been all the same average performances. Some of the opo havent been good enough for it to matter, others have. Basically we've been winging it IMO so stick that in your pipe and smoke bomb it!

Dartford away we played rubbish but got a draw with a late penalty,

Braintree away we played rubbish but won 1-0,

Yesterday played rubbish and lost 2-0,

3 games I have been to in the last couple of months,

Common denominator =  we played rubbish.

I do not blame the players just the system they are told to play.
