Quoted from GrimRob


Glad you're not Chairman you'd be sacking someone every season.  


They should be for not getting us promoted!


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.

Didn't think we had a chairman. Thought he describes himself as Major shareholder(donated by Trust)/ Custodian?

I cannot believe someone of your calibre can be remotely bothered about ticks and crosses. As I've said numerous times:- I've turned them off-it's liberating


I'm not but they are sometimes telling.

We did at one point have a chairman who had form for that

Hurst's on a 6 month rolling contract, not a 12 month one.

flipping to right, Hurst would have gone Xmas last season.


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.

A year of Hurst's wages, and any signing on fee for a new man. It might be more if the new manager wants to bring other staff here to work with him.


Hurst is on a 6 month rolling contract not 12 so half your figure, not so much of a gamble is it



Are we any closer to getting promoted since Hurst has been here? No

Has he been given time to achieve promotion by the chairman and fans? Yes

Hurst out

It's not just about money though, it's about his CV. Let me remind you....

2008-2009 Ilkeston Town Play-offs Winners
2009-2010 Boston United Play-offs Winners, Northern Premier League Challenge Cup Winners
2010-2011 Boston United Play-offs (PH left before they were knocked out)
2012–2013 Grimsby Play-offs, FA Trophy Runners-up
2013–2014 Grimsby Play-offs, FA Trophy Semis

If he wasn't our manager we'd be screaming for him to be with that record. He could more or less name his job at any team in non-league. Someone like Forest Green will snap his up if we let him go. It's not a gimme that we get to the play-offs every year and have a chance of winning the title. With someone else we could well be back to play-offs once every 3 or 4 years like say Wrexham.

Two points. 1. Most of that CV was achieved as part of a duo, and 2. He's been busy alienating himself from some of the fan base and now, therefore, lacks credibility.
