Honestly, you sometimes wonder why ANYONE would want to manage or play for Town, given the way some fans are not just judgmental, but even pre-judgmental.

I get it that many posters believe they have greater football intelligence than the manager who has put us in 2nd place, but why be snide about a player who hasn't even stepped on the pitch for us yet?

This. And they never flipping learn. They never learn when they write-off Clay before he's played a game as a completely ridiculous signing. Who's saying that now?

They never learn when they give John-Lewis some flipping awful reviews after every game, some stepping into open abuse... how many has he scored so far?

And they'll same the same banal excrement every time anyone is signed who isn't Ronaldo or Messi, and they'll think they know better than a manager who's doing pretty well for us.

In short, I agree... intercourse knows why anyone would want to work for this club sometimes...

Isnt that what you do with rough Diamonds?  i'm sure if they are any good we may be in for them both


Yeah that's true I suppose. I just don't see any more 'next season' logic in their signing than there was in the signing of Luke McCarthy or Dougie Wilson.

Sorry Woz. We must have been writing threads simultaneously. Yours wasn't there when I logged in.  


It's been a restless night knowing I've been plagiarised


In a neat little town they all call Grimsby
Apprentice to a tradeI was bound
And many's an hour's sweet happiness
Have I spent in this neat little town.

A sad misfortune came over me
Which caused me to stray from the land
Far away from my friends and relations
Never Betrayed by the black and white band.

Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black and white band.

I agree with the first part to some extent, but be honest he aint like hurst said, exceptional from his stats....and to be fair to anyone with half a brain, with the players he has at his disposal, ronald mcdonald could get us to 2nd place.. IMO hurst is the worst manager with the best players, at this level i have seen in 50 yrs at blundell park

He also sought out and signed a lot of those players, so surely as a manager he should get some credit? Seems quite hard to say we've got good players and not give the manager who signed them any credit at all... surely that we have a squad of "best players" is down to his influence, thus making him, at the very least, a decent manager in that aspect?

Now, now - don't be unreasonable by using facts in support of your argument

And some might struggle to accept they dont always agree.


I do however agree with your prior kind offer to shove a sausage where the sun don't shine which was based on your own astute judgment of someone else who is doing quite well for Town.

Btw - Welcome to Grimsby, Nicky W - hope you do well for us

That only makes him a good scout.

A good manager is one who gets the best out the resources at his disposal, whether he signed them or not.

Some think PH is good at that, some don't. Next April is the time to judge.

If that bug that Aswad has got is spreading ideal to get someond in . Didn't Doig say others weren't well . Free Saturday coming up plus we haven't or don't appear to have any link with league clubs to jointly assist bringing on players . Easy access up the 180 , so I have no problem if he gets a game or two and can cross the ball and take a decent corner kick .

Here's what he said to me

Oh Grimsby Grimsby
Whatever will be will be
You'll follow then faithfully
Oh Grimsby Grimsby
