To all Towns genuine Fans, I really hope that the year 2015 will be our turn to get back into the proper league.

By that I mean the official FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION LEAGUE. It has certainly been very difficult the past four years, but this season in my eyes I really think we have got the players at the club that can take us to the real football league status.

People might not think like I do regarding the status of Paul Hurst the manager who this season is making all the descisions on his own back, in one way he is beginning to learn a great deal of intelligance regarding the sole job of picking his first team every week.

Fans might say that he should listen to people around him. but at the end of the day it is solely in his hands to get Town out of this league,and the people I personally know in football really do think that he is a good assett to Grimsby Town.

It is coming upto Xmas and hopefully we will still be chasing the leaders or even be up in the top three positions.
I have always thought that if Town are going to have a chance of promotion they have got to be in the top three at Xmas time.
I really do think that we will be there.

Depends: who is the best? Can we afford the best? Isn't the 'best' a bit subjective, Hurst is doing pretty well...

He's rated by many. I remember the Conference preview on BT, we were tipped to go up by 2 of the 3 pundits, including John Still, and they both rated Paul Hurst as a great manager.

I agree with the OP. We can do this, keep the faith!

Hurst is still learning,

He will get better ( I hope )

If he can get the balance right between keeping a tight defence but also have the attack threatening  to score at will,

Then we will go up this season,

We have come close only to be disappointed so here's to a successful end to the season,

Fingers crossed.

I just feel we need a proven striker then I would be a little more optimistic,I understand that  getting a proven striker will not be easy though.


Grimsby and proud!

I am sure he is rated by at least 10 of the teams below us......problem is that counts for fk all unless he delivers promotion. Call me greedy but i want automatic, top spot promotion....going up by the play offs is very welcome but anything other than that is failure.

I have my frustrations with Hurst like every other fan, but we really have to stick by him, because how can any one of us seriously say that someone else could do it better?

And I doubt my stance will change in the summer if we don't go up.

In Hurst we have a manager who, for now at least, knows how to assemble a squad of good players and get them to compete at the right end of the division. As long as Hurst remains in charge, we'll be pushing for promotion.

It's not a guarantee of automatic promotion, but it's the next best thing.
