Very poor today, game plan undone in minute 1, the minute we go behind we dont need a holding midfielder and that is why this formation will not work at home, we need 2 up front!! Pell very poor today and dis should have started, did more in his 20 minutes then the rest of our centre mid all day, arnold best of a bad bunch, means it is a massive game on tuesday and i hope to god we go for it because ive seem woking this season and they certainly will be a test

Beaten before kick off by strange formation for a HOME game.

Two holding midfielders, no wingers, one up front isolated.

Played into their hands, couldn't get going, too narrow, everything through the middle.

No one played well, some were worse than others.

Not the way to win home games or entertain your home fans.

Glad I didn't waste the afternoon listening to that utterly predictable performance and result. Yet another home flop. Very poor.

Wasn't there a question posed on here earlier in the week - "Where have all the fans gone?". Well, y'know what......

Just out of interest - what formation did Kiddy play today?

Some of the passing, clearances, positional  and overall play was so sloppy. But on another day we could and should have scored a number of goals. Keepers pulled off some saves and we missed some chances.

kidderminster played well today, i think even if we played well we'd have struggled, they didn't play like a depleted side, we've been on a good run though, come on town v woking

last but not least; if i want to clap my team off at the end i will do, if you don't like it, up yours!

UTM!!

Not sure how you could say we played 5 at the back BUT we were really poor today. We simply couldn't pass to our own players, we had little or no movement ( making us very easy to defend against).
We were very pedestrian in midfield with Parslow and Pell 'loll oping' around one paced.

Heard some jump ties abusing Aswad for their first goal. he was sold down the river by Pells lack of strength and a pass into space. Thomas had to come across with his man, leaving acres for the scorer to run into. He had no choice.

Felt we had to go at Kiddy today and I would have started with Pittman but after 5 wins in 6 I can see why PH went same again. Had he changed it and we put in a similar display he would have got pesters for changing a winning strategy. Overall we should be more adventurous at home.

Nielson was a passenger first half, got more of the ball2nd half but did all his dribbling 30 plus yards from goal and often over did it.

No idea who got MOM but not sure there was one?

5 wins and a draw in 7 games is not a time to go overboard but I think we are in for a tough game on Tuesday and Wokings movement will cause us problems if we go with a static central midfield combo

Neilson got MOM but how he got it god only knows. How the hell anyone can say we have the best defence in the league after today's performance baffles me.

Bloody rubbish throughout the team today. Struggling to think of anybody who had a better than competent game and too many of them were well out of sorts. The number of times we just passed the ball either straight to the opposition players or directly into touch was just embarrassing. Unfortunately, 4-3-3 just doesn't work for us at home as, let's face it, we are really playing a 4-5-1 despite what is claimed as the two wide players automatically drop back into midfield all of the time. It's disturbing how we always seem to have a rubbish performance just waiting to come out even when we're on a really good run of form. You could tell almost from the start today that we would be poor.

Considering that Parslow was meant to be a holding midfielder, he was just hopeless today - second to the ball every time and not much use at all. In the first half, Neilson was utterly anonymous but improved a little bit in the second half. On the other hand, Pell was OK in the first half but pretty much invisible during his time on the pitch in the second half. All in all, our midfield was very much second best to that of Kiddy who looked strong, quick and mobile.

The only (very slight) positive I can think of is that despite playing poorly in general, we actually created a few reasonable goalscoring opportunities and their keeper was forced into a few decent saves. The fact that we failed to finish off any of those chances is obviously a problem. Oh, we improved a bit after Disley and Pittman came on as well but still looked shaky at the back.

Ultimately, I don't think we're going to be challenging for top spot this season so we will just have to hope for a run of good form to take us through the play-offs.

I've come to the conclusion that the distribution of our defenders just isn't good enough so teams know they can sit back holding themselves defensively solid and we are going to struggle to pass it through them.

Poor start and didn't recover. Not sure where Aswad was for the first, shouldn't be up for corner or nowhere to be seen in the left back spot. Second goal was something we have lacked all season, decent delivery and players attacking the ball.

Toto continues to worry me, the guy looks class one minute then Sunday league the next. Huge gaps at back all day. Not sure what Parslow offers at home, looks like a centre half playing in midfield, need someone who offers more on the ball in there. Pell wasn't good enough, Brown didn't look fit to me. Nielson and Arnold were either not wide enough, narrowing the play to much or not supporting Lenny enough who had a tough afternoon up against the impressive Gowling.

Got to be 442 on Tuesday. But neither Hannah or Pittman give me confidence alongside John Lewis.

Onl caught the second half on the radio but you'd put money on us nt scoring, it's that predictable and inevitable. I can't take swipes at anyone as I wasn't there, but are Pell and Parslow really up to it? Will they actually strengthen our promotion push, I'm sure there are other players out there to still be made available for loan, maybe we need to take a good look and choose carefully because the midfield sounded as weak and lacking bite as ever until Diz came on.

.


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!!

We do have two other midfielders under contract but they're not getting a look in whilst the non-performing loanees are preferred. Frustrating for me that he'll give a loan defender a run of games in central midfield despite not putting in the performances, but he won't afford that same opportunity to  McLaughlin, who's had little more than the odd game here or there out of position and 10 minutes off the bench every few weeks.

Kiddy certainly didnt pack the defence, they got men forward at every opportunity and always had at least two up front

Carl Magnay's hitting the nail on the head on the radio right now. Giving the interview Hurst should be giving - identifying what went wrong, suggesting we don't need a holding midfielder at home and apologising for a shambolic performance.

What a dreadful first half performance and an early goal against stopped us before we got going. It was a joke of a goal so many players caught out of position and Pell's missed tackle was inexcusable. Not sure what Parslow was supposed to be doing. If he was playing a holding role, he did not get near the ball, did not cut out passes, did not win tackles and did not set anything up going forward. He might as well have been sitting near me. The whole team lacked confidence on the ball and were too slow against a sharp Kiddy team. Craig Clay should have replaced Pell to give us some bite and energy. Obviously conceding a second from a corner early in the second half was a disaster and whilst we put them under pressure as the game wore on we did not create any real clear chances and their Keeper saved our efforts on goal well. We will certainly have to play with more pace and quality on Tues to avoid another set back. In terms of cementing our place at the top today was an opportunity missed. On today's showing we do not look like a championship winning side, far from it.

If we continue to play like that, we will not even going to make the play offs.  Very poor today by everyone.

Hope we put up a better performance on Tuesday night, but after todays performance, I think another 500 will not be watching it

Exactly. We have decent  midfielders on the bench or in the stands and we bring in 2 loan players who are no better. I just don't understand why he keeps bringing in players in positions we don't need, when we have the worst performing strikers in the top 5.

Paddy must be well drunk off watching Pells non performances. Similarly Clay with Parslow.

Agree Kiddy looked pretty good. Passed the ball went, created shooting opportunities, took decent set plays and had a few tasty long shots. That said I think we allowed them to play due to our poor midfield (especially Pell who was abysmal) and dost defending (Aswad and Toto who were both all over the place physically and psychologically!). LJL worked hard but had no decent service as was pleased with Pittmans efforts when he came on.

Neilson and Arnold were both really good in my opinion. Arnold looks a right player and although he struggled for an end product, Neilson's dribbling was immense. I love that trick he does where his belly goes one way as then he dribbles the other way.

No excuses today  Mr Hurst . anyone in the ground could see our formation wasnt working . I said to the people next to me that he will probably wait till we go 2-0 to change ........ Guess what ............ It should have been changed after 10 mins IMO , Nothing wrong with admiting you got it wrong

Keep Disley in the TEAM
Why does Pell get the nod over Clay ??
If it isnt working change it , even after 10 mins

If he wants to play 1 upfront, at home, he has to take the holding player out and put a no.10 in behind LJL.

Very, very, very frustrating. Not quite ruined my 25th birthday but it certainly doesn't leave me wanting to do a great deal of celebrating.

I thought we started fairly brightly. Arnold looking to build on his strong performance at Alty by running at the Kidderminster defence with vigour. Their goal, ironically, came as a result of a Town corner. Pell didn't win the ball and Marvin Johnson was able to surge forward before slotting calmly underneath McKeown.

After they scored you expected a reaction from Town but that didn't come. Neilson was the only attacking player who looked relatively threatening for us. Unfortunately, though, even he seemed to lose his composure when he eventually got in a position to shoot yet decided otherwise.

My two major concerns were the lack of depth we had in attack and Pell's inability to start a positive move or stand *tall* when Kidderminster broke forward. Quite honestly I would play Clay instead of him in the next game. I don't think, realistically, there was much we could do about the second goal. Byrne's header was powerful and Magnay did well to get a boot on the ball but couldn't stop it from finding the back of the net.

The lack of depth in attack today was concerning. I still do not understand why Neilson is played on the left. It's obvious that he'll move inside, which always leaves Aswad exposed at left-back. Subsequently it also means Aswad is not able to go forward on the overlap as much because of the lack of cover.

I still would persist with LJL on his own up top because I'm not sure how you accommodate Neilson and Arnold if you play two up front. Unless you use Arnold as a striker, of course. Not sure he'd be too comfortable playing that role, though.

The best eleven I think we have is: McKeown - Magnay, Nsiala, Pearson, Thomas - Clay, Brown - Arnold, Neilson, Mackreth - LJL (4-2-3-1). If you want two up top then you could go for: McKeown - as above - Clay, Brown, Disley - Neilson - Pittman, LJL (4-3-1-2). The latter obviously means there is no threat from the wings but gives you more numbers in attack.

Now for a few beers and a curry.

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.

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!

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!!

Can't understand those red crosses , they must have those special glasses on or didn't go . Mid table side going nowhere playing like this , so pridicable so boring so not exciting .

Posts say it  all ,  Teams come here and know howceasy it's going to be . Pack the defence as we haven't a clue how to break them down . 90 seconds our unknown game plan collapsed total lack of skill , control , passion , leadership  . Two steps forward three steps back . Bilp maybe , but Christmas is getting close .


Erm, I don't think they came and packed the defence as they created the better chances early on in the game.

It might have worked in a few games but one wonders what sort of message it gives out to away teams when we set up with one striker.

Also Hurst has to be more proactive, the formation clearly wasn't working so we were all saying he must change it at half-time but no and just like Oxford they scored just after half time and game virtually over.

I have been saying it all season, I just don't think we we will be good enough to threaten top spot come the end of the season unless Hurst changes his ways.

What I'd like to ask Hurst is why possibly one of the best creative players in this league has been shoved out wide from the central position he was terrorising teams from at the start of the season? He's our best creative outlet, use it ffs.

It's the manner of the defeat , not so much a win ,, we gave them them the win . Totally unacceptable from a supposedly professional outfit .

We need to show more confidence at home, rather than setting up like the away team.  Our supposed 433 is NEVER 433, today it was 4141, with the holding "1" a decent but out of place defender

I know some fans were calling for a goal keeping coach when Steve Croudson left but is there any chance we could have a corner kick coach.

They found themselves one up , unexpectedly , carried on marking 2 to 1 anyone of ours that got into the final third .  Arnold created , but it's obvious we haven't got a natural striker , well Pittman who was on the bench . Chasing the game from 90 seconds , we might have had possession but we aren't dangerous .

Carl Magnay's hitting the nail on the head on the radio right now. Giving the interview Hurst should be giving - identifying what went wrong, suggesting we don't need a holding midfielder at home and apologising for a shambolic performance.


Hmm thats him out of Hursty team ASAP

I can not remember a game that was poorer than that,

If  it was not for the jumbo Haddock at Steels,

It would had been a waste of a day,

13 hours away from home, having to make sure the daughter was there to look after my disabled wife,

All for what ?

No movement, no speed ,,very poor defending no idea what to do at all,

I like Neilson but how he got mom baffles me, he spent most of the time running across the pitch not attacking the full back,

Hurst is far too cautious and it could cost us promotion,

If we play like that on Tuesday, Woking will have a field day.

I could do that job:

1. Beat the first man.
2. Don't chip it in.
3. Don't put it close to the keeper.
4. Don't overhit it.

It's not really rocket science, is it?

it costs me travelling and ticket about £50 to regularly watch a good squad misused by an incompetent manager, how long have we  got to put up with it and then get abused by him when we show are frustrations. I wonder if Fenty will be having words with Hurst on monday i would like to think he would but i doubt it. We have been turned into an average non league side and they wonder why fans are unhappy,never mind a new stadium will sort it

Just back from my weekend in Lincs. The fish and chips from the chippy was superb, seeing family great, football what football all I saw was 11 blokes trying to kick (unsuccessfully) a ball around a bit of grass. Shambolic, glad it only cost me a fiver. normally come up for the last home game before Christmas but wont bother now. 4-5-1 at home to a depleted team without its 2 first choice strikers your having laugh Hurst. And as for moaning about the fans well he can just FISS OFF back to Yorkshire and never come back. I didn't boo, never do but what do they expect when serving up negative dross like that at home. Crowd will be down to 2800 on Tuesday if were lucky, that'll be a great atmosphere to get the players going.

PS Pell should be sent back today, waste of a shirt, slow to react, half paced and my 98 year old Gran could of knocked him off the ball and won the aerial  battle against him during the last 2 games.

I agree with the above,

I did not boo but I did not have anything to cheer about either.
