A proven scorer.

All we need is the players to get those boots on and actually work hard.

They're bloody all more than capable, they just need to bloody show it.

I think they do work hard and have done all season (with one exception in one half of one game imo)

The effort isnt a problem but is often seen as one whenever the team loses

I think it is getting that Extra 10% out of the players that the players them selves don't know they possess .......... Some Managers excel at it ........ Keegan , Redknapp , Fergie  even Nigel Adkins was great at it .  It must be a skill in managing people , nothing to do with Football .


]Remember its just my opinion  ..... It might not be true ............

I will still say we need 20 goal striker, although that seems harsh with Lenny putting the in with more regularity this season, but at the moment he seems to be our only scorer. Also with the Aswad Thomas situation possibly a left back.  

But mostly we just need it to all click on the pitch as we clearly have a team on their day capable of beating anyone, it just seems that day is not as common as we all want and need.

Player wise?

I think we need two players who can give us real strength and pace. This needs to be in we wider areas of the park too., especially if the Aswad stories are true. My starting 11 would be at the moment.
Macca

Magnay
Toto
Pearson
Aswad/Vacancy

Disley
Brown if fit or Vacancy if not

Neilson (free role)

Pittman
LJL
Vacancy

Arnold
MacKreath
Parslow plus two on bench

4.2.1.3 formation with Disley/Brown protecting the back 4 and interchangeable front three offering pace and width.

I don't play football manager, and it may seem like a cavalier formation, but it has potential to be exciting. If only PH stopped playing the percentage game and was much braver than I believe he is.


Dependant on any of your vacancies being filled, I would swap Nielson for the front three vacancy and bring in Clay for the midfield with probably Disley and Clay as the more defensive midfielders and Brown allowed to roam a bit more.

I know what you mean, but I think the perception with some of the recent home performances is that a lack of pressing and attacking (particularly Lincoln and the second half of Macclesfield) is that the effort levels had dropped off compared to some of the other home games this season.

Compare Alfreton to Lincoln, for example. Is that a lack of effort or desire or a change in tactics?

to go for it EVERY game and start smashing teams , , , just like at Gateshead and at home to Alfie, , , to show passion, pride and belief, , , to want to win EVERY header, , , to want to win EVERY tackle, , , to take decent corners and free kicks, , , to make teams, managers and fans to start talking about Grimsby Town FC, , , and saying , , " flip they are flying right now , , I don't fancy playing them" , , ,

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