We were all over the place today. No bite, no quick movement of the ball from defence and midfield. Playing one up top is unbelievable at home and Hurst us stubborn about it. 3 home league defeats and it is not Xmas yet. kiddy were ok but not brilliant. That said I think they had many more efforts on target than us. I couldn't believe Toto didn't score in the second half with the goal at his mercy. Magnay summed it up really when he said the formation at home needs to be attacking. He also said he thought there was some ill disciplined stuff in the second half (gunho Neilson I think he was referring to)

Disappointed in Hurst's comments about some fans booing at the end. Although I feel it is non productive, the paying fans have a right to show their displeasure at such a poor performance. He annoys with the same comments about the fans when things go wrong. It is not their fault we were shite.

Quoted from BIGChris


He wasnt up for the corner, he was marking their player who moved over to our right hand side. Did you think he should have just stood in the left back spot? No blame whatsoever on Aswad for their first goal!!


Poor positioning and lack of effort from Aswad for the goal imo, although Pell should be doing more in the first instance.

Not sure if it's Hurst's instructions for Aswad to get forward, but we always seem to get caught out down our left side while Thomas is jogging back. He doesn't seem to read the game well to me.

They had another chance in the first half when our left back was again caught out of position meaning the centre halves were pulled across, Magnay had to cover them and the guy was free back post, but his strike partner didn't square it for a tap in.


"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!!!"

One striker and a holding midfielder at home should tell you all you need to know.

Just not what we need or expect when we are at home and it is up to us to show all the attacking intent.

I remember that chance, but am not sure it was Aswad's fault; the formation was wrong - surely Parslow playing deep is partly to cover for situations like that, but the communication between the 2 centre backs and parslow was awful.

Having said that, everyone had multiple awful moments today -  could have easily taken off Parslow/Toto and Pell at halftime and brought on Pittman and Disley, but instead, played it safe, and conceded another !!!




What a time to be a Grimsby Town Fan!

Glad I went to IKEA today, simple as that really.  The desire to do a 260 mile round trip to watch inconsistent negative crap left me a long time ago.

Agree about Parslow, supposed to shield the back but didn't and can't pass a ball either. If we are to persist with this formation then it has to be Disley holding at home.

Absolute garbage I left as soon as they scored the 2nd knowing full well there was no chance of a comeback. Hurst just been papering over the cracks this last month, I've said it before  il say it again average team in a shockingly urine poor quality league.

Absolutely terrible!!!
I predicted we would lose and was not wrong.
We have been lucky to win a lot of matches and I am amazed we are in this false position.
I feel our Christmas slump is coming early this season.
Buck up lads!!
That was shocking!!!
