Perhaps someone should enlighten the fans about what the clubs expectations are this year then we might not get too disappointed when we are humiliated by FGR.


Didn't Phil Day say League 1, then the Championship at some point last season?

I was offering a bet that we finish higher than FGR even after Sat. Amazing I got no takers.

Correct- more guff from the boardroom that appears to have been swept away on the tide of football fortune

Anybody with half a brain cell ( which excludes most on here ) could see that this quote was purely a way of the manager telling the fans that we are crap, we have no budget, so expect nothing, yet the red cross brigade are out in full force again.  I will not be posting again, with the exception of a few, this forum is full of muppets that are not REAL fans of the football club, merely cyber tosspots that spout rubbish.  All very boring, will leave the muppets to their daily drivel, far better things to do.  When I talk to GTFC fans , I will merely talk to those that actually attend games and have an IQ above 4.

The club’s big marketing pitch was the Jolley Revolution. I’m sorry, but that surely promises more than finishing four or five places higher than last season?

How dare Grimsby Town fans have hopes and expectations at the start of a football season. We should certainly know our place by now.

I would say from gauging comments, fans on here were expecting an average finishing position of around 10th with a sneaky chance of a play off place.

I’m not writing anything off after one game, but please can we go into a season without the powers in be setting targets of mediocrity or dampening down hopes and expectations. Not going to put floating fan bums on seats is it?

That should limit things quite a lot, in fact you may not have anyone to talk to at all

It doesn't affect me unless of course he's hinting we might finish 24th

Trying not to get involved as my post will be negative (far too early in the season), but I can't help it.

Once again, within a short space of time, a manger starts to get defensive. It's almost as if they have the positivity knocked out of them early doors.  It may partly be the fans on his back, but I've got a horrible feeling it's embroiled in the club.
And let's be honest, who here doesn't think that JF might well be saying negative stuff to MJ regarding the fans.

I do agree a lot of fans seemed to be expecting far too much with talk of automatic promotion or even winning the league.  But no-one I know even remotely expected the display we saw on Saturday.  It wasn't just a bad day at the office was it.  It was the whole bloody thing.

As for looking at the past history.  That tells me (very worryingly) that MJ is already preparing his defence. We all know he is very intelligent so why would he feel the need to do that?  

Unless something happens on the transfer front very very shortly, I fear it will be a long four months till the Jan transfer window. I guess the teamwork (as in working as a unit) and fitness will improve, so it's not as if we were rearing to go and still got hammered. I just think the pre-season work up was not as good as it should have been.

I certainly haven't given up on MJ and expect things will improve.  But as has been said many times, wholesale change at the club is required for us to progress.    UTM


Can I just say a large Thank You to person that explained what the word 'many' actually means.

It means a lot
