Grimsby fans dont deserve to go up. They are too negative and dont support the team.


balderdash    
I deserve to go up.I'm not negative in thinking being League Champs is the only option & I will be there the next game to support the team


In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

Loyal? Even the ones who say they're not going to games until Hurst is out? Really? There's 3000 odd loyal, the rest (like you and the OP) sadly are not.


How do you judge loyalty? It is not the same as stupidity. I have, until the Southport game, been attending for 50 years and as such have taken the rough with the smooth. But in all those years I have never been so bored as I have watching town under PH. I can count the entertaining matches on one hand. If he, by these tactics, succeeds and gets us promoted he will have been proved right in his approach. I do not believe he will, but hope he proves me wrong, but either way my season ticket will not be used again whilst he is in charge. That may be disloyal but its that or lose my sanity watching his inept tactics cost countless home points.

As Ginny said in a post earlier this week his attitude to the fans and his tactical approach mean every "average" performance brings heaps of criticism which I accept is not always deserved on that sole performance but is in reality the fans expressing their frustration on 18 months plus of watching very sverage football.

You bought a season ticket for a non league team, that's kind of what you get. Value for money? Probably not, but it's par for the course at this level. You say it's the worst football you've seen. Don't you think that's because we're at our lowest level since you've been watching.


"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!!!"

Not at all, I would accept that the lack of away fans and the consequent reduction in the overall atmosphere within BP does not help but I recall saying to my brother when we went out the league that at least we would, hopefully in future, be watching a side that sits near the top and not the bottom of the league. In reality, whilst i am not petty enough to argue that being second is not ok in itself the frustration is a) the amount of points lost particularly to mediocre teams at home and b) the overall quality of the entertainment on offer even when we have won.

I have said previously losses like Huddersfield, Macclesfield at home last year and Lincoln away this year are, despite the disappointment, acceptable IMO as they were enjoyable matches to watch. I do not expect a classic every week but going home entertained every other game would be nice whereas, IMO, it is more like once in every five to six home games. At approaching 60 I have had enough but pray I am wrong and that the PH fans are proved right and this is the year we return to the league.

No, he bought a season ticket for Grimsby Town who happen to be in the Conference. There is a subtle difference there. Also York were promoted out of the league playing football that most people thought was very good. So did Luton of course and .... we could go on.

But ultimately the question to ask is why Grimsby Town is not consistently winning games against sides that should be brushed aside by 2 or 3 clear goals. If the team was to do that most fans would forgive any sort of style of play.

If people were happy to watch shite football matches just to watch 'results' football would've died a death many many years ago.

Try telling Hurst that...
