Question for those who go and watch training. Does mccalister attend and does he train with the first team squad ?
Seems so strange that given our few options in midfield that he can’t even get on the bench
What as he done wrong is he refusing to play
Yesterday when Matt dean asked jolly about injuries there was no mention of him.

A complete waste of money-3-4 games since we signed him and people still keep calling for him to be in the team-most likely a call in desperation.

Played less than 10 games in 2 years, had numerous injuries in that time, and prior to that only been a decent lower league player. Maybe he’s nowhere near the standard anymore. Injuries can really take their toll. In the state we’re in, if he was good enough he would have been in the team.


"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!!!"

If he is indeed fit, it surely can't be anything else but a contractual thing - i.e. his deal automatically gives him an extra year of he appears in both seasons.

If so, this would be a bloody silly deal to give him in the first place, but that sounds entirely possible knowing those doing the recruiting!

You'd imagine he will be one of the better paid players, but the situation is so dire, can we afford not to play him?

Can’t be contractual. No one in the history of the game has negotiated a contract where playing 10-15 games over 2 years kicks in a new one year deal.

I agree there must be a reason but no one seems to know. We have many weak areas on the pitch but centre midfield is the heart beat of the team and Berrett is just shocking from the few times I have seen him and it seems that is the view of the majority, so there must be something else going on behind the scenes.

Maybe he is not showing the right attitude in training, maybe he is not fit enough (didn’t play that much for York when on loan did he?). I know he claims he is fit, but maybe it is in his own interest to do so.

I do think the question needs to be asked though, and realistically that can only be done by the press in the public domain as non of us are going to get an answer. I am not on that Twitter thingy, maybe someone can ask Matt Dean why he is not asking the question, or whether he can do so.

Most of our players are nowhere near the standard required.

Virtually all of our squad doesn’t cut it I’d only keep 4/5 for next year
