Well if this does not show our intent i don't know what does, well done Hurst and Fenty now to really give this final run in one to remember must give the rest of the lads a boost to know we are serious about getting back in the league proper. Now it's up to us to give them some support make BP a lions den.

come on up the feckin mariners!!!

Hell of a squad now, some real good players vying for a place in the team, looking good for the rest of the season UTM

Both these look quality signings and will  improves the squad and the team.

I think it gives the fans a big boost as well just when we were resigning ourselves to another probable play off failure. Credit to the manager and JF for making it happen.

We have been ok at the back for the most part this season and Robertson will presumably just slot in for Thomas. Parslow now provides cover.

Scoring goals has been a bit of a problem (as it has in recent seasons) but when you look at the attacking talent we have now, add loan of Palmer who looks pretty good so far, there really is no excuse.
Dont know what if means to Palmers future at BP but i would keep him to the end of the season as well.

so we have to pick from up front:
LJL
JPP
Palmer
Jolley
Arnold
Hannah
Watson

Compares well with anyone else's options.

7 strikers...even Man City dont have that many. Can a Conference side carry that many? Expect one or two will be allowed to go out on loan or permanently.

I know it's asking a lot but I would really love it if we could keep Olley Palmer at least until the seasons end. He is a talisman and as already proved a hit with the fans but more than this his presence gives others time and space. He also holds the ball up brilliantly giving our defence a rest wins the ball and chases everything.

Our performances and results usually deteriorate from the 1 Jan.  This year the trend is to maintain the good form from earlier in the season.  Let us hope that results continue at Eastleigh and the new players make a very positive difference to the end of the season.

Quoted from fiveallive
A good signing Christian Jolley a few of us was hoping he signed for us a couple of seasons a go. We needed another winger because we have played Mackreth and Arnold a lot recently and Arnold looks like he could do with a couple of games rest bar is is game against Barnet his performances have dropped a bit, i know we still have Neilson i think he can still play a big part along with Rossy Hannah but obviously there game time has been limited its  a shame with Hannah seems injuries have took there toll on him and he's lost a bit of a yard but can help out to the end of the season.


Rest? He's played about a dozen games this season.

If he needs a rest, there's something wrong with him.

There is something wrong with him. He's bone idle


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.

If we play three that might be an ok number, tho I think Watson is looking like "one for the future". Hannah doesn't seem to suit a three though.

I don't want to be negative but lets just take a step back, it does not matter what they have done in the past it is what they are going to do for GTFC in the coming months.

I remember all the posts about Mackreth how he was a great signing, one of the best wingers in the division, tore us a new when when we played Macclesfield etc etc etc but in reality he is not much of an improvement on Colbeck.

Lets hope they will greatly improve the squad and even maybe help us make a challenge for top spot.


I agree.

Really hope the signings are as good as they look on paper. If Jolley is anything like he was 2 seasons ago then he will be excellent.
Robertson has good experience and should be match fit
I honestly thought Brodie was going to be the jam on our cake and see us over the line 2 years ago and that didn't turn out too well.

I guess I fear that with so many options PH ends up swapping and changing each week rather than getting some continuity and partnerships

Two excellent signings on paper! I really hope Hurst sticks with 442, with Palmer (hopefully till the end of the season) and LJL up front and Jolley on the right. Mackreth has done ok recently, but I don't think he is good enough for a team that wants promotion.
