Am I right in saying wilko has experienced promotion from this league? Which might indicate he never had a great input with russ

Better late than never , well done john .

Now let's get behind the club and look forward , I have no doubt this would have been a very hard decision for john as he had backed him all the way and one thing you cant deny is the support he gave Russell at this club.

It needed to be done as we were sinking like a stone from top to bottom.

Quoted Text
The Board would like to thank Russell for his efforts and hard work and are bitterly disappointed that this did not turn out differently. He had a strong working relationship with the Board and all involved are disappointed to see a good, hardworking and honest man, who cared intensely about the club, lose his job.


Nah you can intercourse off Slade.

Hopefully we can now consolidate our position and move forward and not dig up relics from the past like Slade.

Should have happened weeks ago but fair play to John and the board for finally admitting it wasn’t going to work.

Now let’s really get behind the team and be part of turning this club back around!!!

Up the mariners!!!!


"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!!!"

Typical. I go out for a walk along the prom to clear my head and miss the big announcement. Whilst i was out i was thinking about it and came to the conclusion that he would have to be sacked, either today or tomorrow. The club had no options left and the board had to act. I also got to thinking that if the rumours are true of Slade and Wilko not getting on, then maybe Wilko would be spared and given the team to look after until a new No1 could be recruited. He is the assistant manager after all. I don't think it matters who is in temporary charge if the new man is installed fairly quickly. Wilko, Andy Warrington and Dave Moore have the experience to keep us ticking over for now.

As for the rumours of the massive contract, it was just crazy to even think that the board would sanction that, and so it proves.

Please, please, please get this next appointment right.

Up to now I had felt resigned to the fact Town were going down.  I had given up on any hope under Slade. At least with him gone I have some renewed optimism.

Lets give Wilko a chance and see what the longer term solution is. First things first ...lets get a win soon and hopefully get some confidence back into the players (and supporters).

3 pts at Cambridge would be fantastic but is maybe a big ask. But an hour ago i had zero hope of getting anything on Saturday...at least now I can dream.

Doesn't matter now mate.
He's gone and anything he implemented can soon be ironed out 👍😀😀


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.
