Eddie Howe at Bournemouth  only experience of coaching had been their Under 18's when he was elevated to first team caretaker manager on New Years Eve 2008 and he was only 31. I'm sure he made a lot of mistakes and bad signings on the way but look where Bournemouth are now? Not that I'm saying MJ is another Howe but he has to be given chance to have a full squad who are ALL his signings and not some who are extensions to contracts just to ensure some stability.

The other point is location though, Leyton is not salubrious but it is well placed so there is a more obvious potential than Grimsby - not necessarily better but more obvious. The investment by the chairman’s pal makes you wonder why our owner seems to be Johnny-No-Mates.



It is compared to NEL nowadays. When we played there the other year you could see the area had gentrified since we rubbed shoulders with them a decade or three ago.

Your last sentance is a very interesting thought.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Jolley has to go.. get more decent high quality players.

I'd say we need two midfielders similar to Hess, one to help him out to go alongside Whitehouse or Clifton and the other as backup.

Two strikers that can effect games. An Amond/Matt type combo because we are league two and it works. Vernam/McCallum(Eastleigh)?

Danny Collins is not first team so a replacement is needed for him.

RHJ is cover for right wingback but who is cover for left wingback?

Loans to facilitate injuries.

Are we keeping the 532, does it work in league two?

End of the day if you have money you have the better players, having better players helps.

Quoted from arryarryarry


Can't be certain but may be Foow was referring to his meltdown when at BP If I remember correctly a game was abandoned because of fog when his side were winning 1-0.


FFS who's going to remember, even less care, about that Anyway I'm not surprised at his attitude, quite understandable, be nice if Jolley was as animated sometimes



Well I did try to tell you all Jolley was a mistake

I live in Leytonstone/a ten minute walk from the ground…as others have mentioned both Leytonstone and Leyton are starting to get gentrified, like a lot of East London already has. It’s now seen as a nice area to live in…especially for first time buyers/younger professional couples

It’s in Zone 3 and on the Central Line. One stop to Stratford (massive Westfield Shopping Centre/Olympic Village – loads going on and right next to trendy Hackney Wick), 4 stops to Liverpool Street (Shoreditch/The City) and a few more stops then you’re in Tottenham Court Road/Oxford Circus/Soho/Covent Garden area. If you go east on the Central Line then you’re in the nice/desirable leafy areas of Essex.

I love Grimsby with all my heart, of course. But we haven’t got a leg to stand on in comparison, if we’re trying to tempt players/managers away from the likes of Orient, unless they actively want to move north, or we can offer more money....or we'remore successful than them!

I think this is the last thing we need - more runners in the team
We need creativity, killer pass, service to forwards

More brain and less brawn!

The blokes a twit Swin he also got a Town fan in the Main Stand chucked out .JE offered the fan`s behind the dugout a fight when one came forward to take up his offer his bottle went and the fan got taken away by Police. Numerous other home supporters in that area then also got involved and make no mistake JE caused this and he was the one who should have been chucked out.Of course some people may have forgotten about this but luckily this serves as a reminder

The last player we signed from Leyton Orient was Ronnie Foster he signed on the morning of the match we had in London, Maybe he had not visited the Grimsby area before     he did stay for a while and enjoyed it here and was a good player for us.


I LOVE GRIMSBY TOWN
