There as been quite a bit of bad mouthing on here about him but yesterday credit to him he got it absolutely RIGHT. Ollie Palmer may just well be a master stroke he not only scored a lovely goal but made another and on another day could have had a hat trick. The fans and the players have taken a instant liking to the guy who seems to be a talisman.

Still early days but if Palmer can be the catalyst and lead the front line this gives our defence more time to become a tighter unit and become more attack minded. With the imminent signings of one or two further players this sounds like good intent by Hurst I for one am willing to give him a chance.

Still all to play for bring em on.

Hurst makes a habit getting it right against teams at the top end. I need to see us put some smaller teams to bed. You look at the league table we are a couple of wins from mid table and look at how many points we have thrown against strugglers. Get the tactics right against those teams and we will start to look like a promotion team. Although credit where its due well done PH and lads now lets kick on from here.

Give him and the players great credit for yesterday, got the tactics right, played our own game at a fast tempo, for once didnt give a excrement about how the opposition went about there game and we attacked from the off.
Having said that it will take more than one game to change my mind about Hurst.  

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.

Fair play to TAGG & denni for their posts. I too hope this isnt a one off.

Seems Martin Allen was taken by surprise as he expected us to play  narrow as he had seen us v Gateshead last week

It was nice to see Hurst more relaxed in interview after the game. I don't know if anyone noticed but his pre-match Telewag interview was much more upbeat than his normal as well. Seemed to me that the side reflected this positivity.

But the proof of the pudding will be in the next league game when the fans need to see the same disrespect for the opposition. We saw Town steamroller Barnet and that is the way to play to get out of this league. As a team performance it was better than the Gateshead and Alfreton matches where the scores owed a fair bit to bad defending. Barnet were pressured from start to finish and Town's constant chasing and pressure would have deserved at least 2 more goals.

I hope the manager realises from this game that worrying about the opposition is the road to failure. Just get our own game right.

"There are places I'll remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone, and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends, I still can recall
Some are dead, and some are living
In my life, I've loved them all."

More consistent performances like yesterday at home and we will be right up there come May. Our home form is the problem, only Braintree, Wrexham and Altringham have lost more games at home in the top 18 this season. Lets hope Paul focuses on our strengths instead of the oppositions weaknesses.

Agree with all the above and we have been here before, remember last year when we went to Cambridge and won, but we all hope this is the going to be the norm and not the exception!

Love the way all of goals were scored with Hurst sat in the stand.  Diog was giving like a dutch windmill, when he was on his own in the dugout.

I remember being pelted with ice by the Norwich fans during the Milk Cup match, do you?

Like most fans here I was blown away by the performance yesterday, well done the Town players and well done Hurst.

The one thing that all successful teams have is the players "playing for their manager" I have never doubted Hursts ability to get players to play for him, he shows tremendous loyalty to his team (too much sometimes in my opinion) but it's just this inconsistency thing that has plagued his time here. Yesterday's performance was full of pace, power and commitment for 90 minutes and even after going behind on 5 minutes you could see it just made the players more focused on making sure that this was a game they were going to win!

Because of this one performance all the gloom has lifted off The fishy which can only be a good thing but as someone said earlier "we've been her before" The Barnet game is now a benchmark for the rest of the season, I'm not saying we should win all the remaining games but if we can have that sort of performance and commitment till the end of the season, we could have a chance of getting out of this God forsaken League!!

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
