Do people think that there is a queue of wonderful top calibre managers ready and willing to takeover at BP and serve us up a diet of thrilling total football?

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.



Simple -  LJL's total is respectable but in reality he misses around 5 for everyone he scores and has been the focal point so far (last two games aside)
We simply dont have suitable firepower.
This was known last season, it was the priority in the summer but
never happened,
it was priority in pre season but
never happened,
we grabbed Pittman last minute (a good acquisition i think if he stays injury free),
we were told we would have another before the season started...
never happened....
we were told we would have one on loan within a couple of weeks of the season starting..
.never happened...
we have enquired/tried 28(?)
not happened...
we have now recruited Hamish, an unknown entity really, on a short term contract....January is not too far away so Hamish has a very narrow window to prove to Hurst/himself/us that he is the answer or it turns to..
will we be able to recruit a proven goalscorer in the January window ?

No not a queue but there will be options. However, with town in second place I am not naieve enough to believe PH is in danger of losing his job, but whilst he remains I believe there will be a continued reduction in our average home attendance even if we keep in the top two places.

If at the end of the season we go up he will be able to justify his approach, anything else will for many not be acceptable. For the last two years we have made the play offs and not looked like getting a full house for the home leg, that in itself says alot about how many town fans feel about the type of football on offer.

I hope he succeeds cos that will mean town have succeeded and despite everythin we all say ultimatel that is all we want. How many will turn up to watch us achieve that will though be heavily influenced by how we perceive we are being entertained.

jimmy let me tell you this...

unfortunatley for people like you there are still some grimsby town fans that can see the bigger picture which happens to involve paul hurst not managing this club..

some including myself will stay away and as much as it annoys you its our way of saying i wont pay another bean watching the same old same old and then having to listen to the most ridicoulous post match interviews..

i have earned my absence thankyou very much!


Out of all the things that some of those who want Hurst gone come out with this is the one that makes me smile most. This belief that somehow only "they" can see the bigger picture. Hilarious!

Anyway, haven't you got some sausages to be measuring for fitting?


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

On the ratio LJL misses at least 7 chances for every goal i think the hotdog will be safe.

re the bigger picture all we can go on i suppose is pauls record at our club and i know paul wont take us up were as you hope he will and the odds are in my favour..

I'd be interested in seeing the mathematical data that's behind that statement...just on Tuesday night alone it means he must have had 14 chances!

The bratwurst is coming......

well if it does happen then LJL is welcome to insert the bratwurst as that means i have a chance of him missing the target hole.

I go to every game, home and away.  and all I can see is that we're second in the league.  Better prospects than the last few years.  time will tell how long we're in the mickey mouse cup for, but I think that will be the make or break.  Yes, hurst is negative, but I also believe his philosophy of 'win the home games, don't lose the away games, and you'll win the league'.  My opinion is PH has got it wrong with LJL, but they've built the team around him, and there's no turning back now.   From what I've seen, we play attractive football, but with no end product.  All it takes is a bit of a confidence boost with a couple of players and we'll be flying.  We are second in the league and according to most, we're playing excrement!  not a bad position to be in imho.    we're on the up.   keep the faith.   UTM

That's all well and good, but ignoring basic errors all season only sets you up for dissapointment in the play offs.

Again.
