Quoted from Ipswin


His performance at Wembley was a disgrace (but of course no one was allowed to criticise him as he had just scraped us to a promotion) far better if he had simply looked smug and self-satisfied at having proved the doubters wrong



So you're allowed to criticise him as much as you want but he's not allowed to have a pop back. Grow a pair. Funnily enough I was too busy enjoying one of my best days as a town fans to worry about whether or not I was allowed to slag off the manager. For the record his performance as our manager at Wembley helped to get us promoted.

Anyone else notice the handshake and whisper in Hurst's ear at the end from their captain Downes???

Anything in that or am I just reading between the lines that aren't even there to read in between


Don't you know anything, Didn't you see the sign they made to each other first. They are both in the Royal Antediluvian  Order of Buffaloes   and they were just passing greetings from their respective Lodges. It was a coincidence that they both belong to the same Lodge as Brian Caldwell whoever he may be

Quoted from rancido
I find it hard to believe that there has been so much " jumping to conclusions" and " reading between the lines " on this subject ( although having been a poster for some time on here I shouldn't be surprised).
JF came our with a statement saying that there had been no official approach from Shrewsbury. You either believe him or say he is lying.
Shrewsbury football club have not ( at least to my knowledge ) stated that PH is a potential target to be their manauger. They have mentioned that there are three people they have approached.
A story appears in the Shrewsbury area press naming PH but there are no official statements to back this up. The same applies to the story in their local BBC outlet.
It would seem that some on here expect to be privy to and informed of every stage of this situation, probably even wanting hourly updates!
GTFC can do no more than the statement that JF came out with.
As far as Doigy doing the post match interview then that could be for several reasons, none of which really need to be explained to the fans. He may have come across as a bit dull and downbeat, so what. Not everybody is capable of being interviewed in a bright , dynamic manner and in fact some people ( yours truly ) hates being interviewed and put on the spot. He said that all he knew about the situation as regards Shrewsbury was what he picked up from social media and I believe him. It's not as if he would be privy to every conversation that takes place at BP. It's also quite possible that if an illegal approach had been made to PH then PH wouldn't have informed him anyway!


Stop making sense as David Byrne would say. People enjoy the opportunity to be offended #pashun!

All Doig had to say was "It's not something I can comment on, it's nothing to do with me, I'm only the assistant. It would be inappropriate of me to comment publically on private conversations between myself and Paul Hurst, who is my boss". He doesn't need to lie about it or treat the fans as if we're idiots. If Hurst goes, I hope he does too.

Hi. Shrewsbury fan in peace. Just to say that we are as much in the dark as you are. Unlike some I do not view Grimsby as in some way inferior to us but you have a much more significant history and greater potential. By the same token Shrewsbury are not tinpot. We have a relatively new stadium (although designed by Meccano), are debt free and just invested a big chunk of the £2 million from last season's transfer income in new training facilities. The latter is supposedly one of the reasons why Hurst would want to come to us.

As regards him, I cannot see why he would want to come to us because it is a reasonable assumption that we would by pass each other by next season. Many of our fans have unrealistic ideas as to the sort of person we eventually get. Most are disappointed we didn't get Kenny Jackett...as if.

One other thing, Mickey Mellon went before he was pushed which would definitely have happened..clueless in anything above League 2. He opted for Tranmere (potentially a bigger club) because both he and his assistant were popular as players there. He, himself, never moved his family from Blackpool so closer to his home.

Best of luck this season and I hope we meet each other in League 1 next.

I think we will be meeting each other but it won't be league 1  and if he does go ffs Dont critisise him cos he gets mardy pretty quickly but he's a grafter who gives it 100% and yes he got us promotion even though it took him half a decade. So like most on here not bothered either way just let's get it all sorted 👍

Hurst is the type of manager who will do ok with teams that he builds from scratch. Given that one-year deals are the norm in the Conference, he was able to chop and change regularly. I'm doubtful that he'll be able to come in and get the best out of your team this season. When Hurst first joined us, our 30 goal striker Alan Connell struggled. Hurst is quite a stubborn manager that sticks rigidly to his own fairly basic tactics and tends to put square pegs in round holes. If you're hoping for a manager that will come into your club and develop a system that gets the best out of your existing players, Hurst isn't the man I'm afraid.
