What encourages me most about this management team is that if you're a young player looking to rebuild your career in football after being released by a top club, you might - if you've done your homework - consider Grimsby above other teams based on Jolley et al being committed to coaching and developing young players.

You could go to, I dunno, Oldham - where Sheridan will chuck mud at a wall and hope some of it sticks - or you could sign for the Mariners where highly qualified coaches will give you a chance and try and make you the best you can be. No offence to Sheridan - might be me being lazy - but his track record suggests he won't be there to help you develop beyond one season.

It's literally the total opposite of what Russell Slade was doing. He didn't seem interested in developing anyone; if you looked rubbish after three games, you were benched, dropped from the squad altogether and replaced by a loan signing.

I'm not going to get carried away and say we're going to finish in the play-offs next season. In many ways, that's secondary. What I'm looking forward to is a new team made up of Jolley's players, playing Jolley's way, and watching them build on-field partnerships - and, coupled with more off-field events, build stronger relationships with the fans.

If we get that bit right, then good times on the pitch (and ultimately promotion) will surely follow.

Welcome to the new assistants, things are starting to shape up nicely.

But GTFC, can you please ask someone to proof read your Club Statements, before you post them? It looks very amateurish.

It should be SPOKEN not spoke.

Very good article. Suggests a young hungry team who will play at a high tempo with Gump getting them as fit as a fiddle.

New ways, new era but how long before someone complains about a lack of experience

Spelling not brilliant either!

'Michael Jolley has spoke about his new recuit and believes it to be a real coup for the club.'

I'm here and I complained to myself about half an hour ago when I read the announcement

No point in posting on here as I will only get slaughtered by every fornicator who has blind faith in MJ and everything he does.

What I can't grasp is why? He kept us up fair enough but other than that why the hero worship and why the over the top optimism

I looked back to the posts when we were first looking for a manager As soon as Jolley's name was mentioned every twit was immediately rooting for him despite the fact that all we knew in the first few days was that he was an ex-financial trader and he'd just left a job in Sweden after being relegated. Why I can't work out.

I think its a bit like Southgate and England, he has somehow persuaded everyone its going to be different and I suspect that even if he loses all three group games there will be a groundswell of 'give him a bit longer' or 'give him an other chance' or 'lets see what he does in the Euros'

I am afraid that, God forbid and I don't think it likely but, if we are relegated under Jolley he will still keep his job on the basis of 'he's trying to build something'

Please note, before any sodomist starts, I have said I do not expect us to be relegated but if we are, or if we have another 'Slade-type' season stuck in the bottom end of the table (which everyone moaned about last season) will he still be the Messiah and will he keep his job whatever

I think there were a couple of videos floating around online before he was appointed in which Jolley demonstrated his tactical thinking and approach. It's the sort of rare insight we as fans get to see, and it was reassuring that someone who wasn't managing at the top level was going to bring that forward thinking to a club like ours.

Because, let's be honest, the majority of us think - and know, from watching it - that managers like Slade are pretty one-dimensional.

At the time, and in the context of what we were witnessing, Jolley represented some innovative approach that we'd all been craving for some time.

I appreciate your point, though - it does seem like some are treating him like the messiah, but it's not often we can indulge in a bit of over-the-top euphoria. I think we all realise that Jolley and his coaching staff have potential but, at the same time, they are still relatively unexposed...

...but why hold back on the optimism?

and right on cue Ipswin appears!
always good to have a dissenter in the ranks, so for the record Jolley got us 15 points from 10 games which equates to  69 points in a season which has you up there near the play off places.
This from a standing start with a team who's previous 22 games had yielded the same 15 points. It seems obvious that they were desperately unfit, demoralised, disorganised and heading for relegation. we eventually finished 18th, 5 points clear of relegation. I don't know how many more player interviews you need to watch read or hear for you to appreciate the changes & improvements he's made
