Quoted from Lincoln Mariner 56


Do not recall any booing after we beat Forest Green and even against Lincoln was a very small minority. End of the day as others have said players and squad not as good as we thought and PH has learned nothing from his previous seasons in charge.


Agreed Lincoln Mariner

As I recall it the team were given the usual victory induced applause after we'd defeated FGR...maybe more out of relief that we'd got back in to it after nearly letting it slip but I'd say it was definitely more of a positive reponse at the end of the evening rather than anything negative

And to be honest I didn't notice too much booing after the Lincoln game although that could have been more to do with their fans' celebratory cheers drowning out any jeers from our "fans"

Agree you've hit the nail on the head regarding Hurst not learning anything. He's so stubborn and never accepts responsibility.


Up The Mariners!

The bench was even worse...with the exception of possibly Danny North ( who by then I recall had been publicly lambasted so no surprise he wasn't first choice )

Bennett and Akpa-Akpro would make our side now but nobody else although I can't actually remember Shahin.

Wasnt he a local lad? Scored a good goal in one of his first game? or maybe it was a reserve game

Looking at wikipedia - yeah he is local now plays for Grimsby Borough. I think I suppress most of my memories of town from that period.

Worst side? No. Most under-performing squad? Possibly.

For any player to obtain a professional contract before they even sign for us , must mean that they have ability seen by other managers .  
Unfortunately the style adopted at BP appears to stifle this .  Players have off days , but not all together as we are seeing .

Think I said last season , after the Gatehead league match what could Gary Mills as manager do with the squad we had .  We have hit another low in Towns history .
