as Morrissey one proclaimed....

Mr Hurst...your apparent complete inability to see the plain obvious is wearing thin......just what did you see in LJL's overall performance this evening to warrant him completing 90 mins?


Not a dig at LJL as he just had a bad day but as manager you need to act when faced with such performances.

Hurst's inability to pick players on merit or react to the game's situation is becoming increasingly frustrating! You could make a bet that he'll make subs at around the 70 minute mark each game, and that it won't be LJL, even when he's squandering endless chances!
We were just lucky today that Telford were worse than us, because we were awful!

I suppose you'd have to say that LJL was at least getting into the positions to have the chances and the keeper made a couple of decent saves from him! He should certainly have scored at least once from the 3 one-on-ones he had, however, though Jolley and Arnold missed similarly good chances.

Can't believe we didn't beat that really poor Telford team more convincingly though.

It's funny - I went with my Luton-supporting mate tonight, so he lends an objective pair of eyes. He last watched us in Spring last season and tonight he said 'I told you a year ago you'd never get promoted with John Lewis leading your forward line, and what are you still doing....?'

The players and fans may have wanted more goals, but all Hurst would have been thinking was to see the game out and hold the lead , so to have that strength and outlet up front is priceless... That's probably his thought process. He is very defensive minded remember.

Quoted from springstomind
He is very defensive minded remember.

Too defensive minded, especially against poor teams! Also the formation was too rigid, leading to unnecessary passes sideways and backwards. The times when we passed it quickly forward we carved them open!

I like Lenny, but I must admit he should have scored a couple last night and probably set up others as well. Having accepted that he saw more goalmouth action than any other player and he made most of the chances himself through his strength and hard work. I think he started to beat himself up a bit as the chances came and went and he is trying too hard. Needs to be a bit calmer when the scoring opportunities come to him. Seems to want to blast it each time and I can't help thinking Palmer might have tucked some away.

Agree with what's been said, but at least he was getting into positions to score. Did more than Jolley for me.

"Falls to Arnold... Arnold! That's it! Thats it! He's sealed it! Grimsby Town are back in the football league!!! Just a minute to go and Nathan Arnold makes it 3-1! Look at the scenes behind the goal! Look at the relief! The agony is finally over!!!"

One thing I noticed was how deepJolley went to go looking for the ball and to help out. This meant that he was too far away from Lennie. Both worked very hard last night, just not really together.
Lennie clearly trying too hard and probs needs a rest.

Batch, Crombie, Moore K, Wiggington, Cumming, Waters, Bonnyman, Ford, Emson, Drinkell, Whymark. Love you all, You are the reason I'm on here. You've had help from Todd, Handyside, Futcher P, Groves, Mendonca, Macca etc etc etc. Up The Mariners!!!!!!!!!
