We had the bare bones of a squad for today's game, with no experience whatsoever up top. I'm not going to judge Jolley on today's performance or result.

I think there are (quite rightly) question marks over his performance as manager throughout the season. I don't think he should go because I'm still unsure how that'll change the bigger picture. What we need is a miracle worker because the next manager will only face the same issues - a weak budget while reporting to a board with no vision and no succession planning.

You can ask why Jolley did business in such a way that it left us with the depleted squad we have today. You can ask whether he is tactically astute enough to succeed in this game. I don't blame fans for questioning his abilities.

But please can we be mindful that we've been here before. One failed manager leaves, another sorts out his mess and then gets the heave-ho for the next in line to sort out. Rinse and repeat.

It's this that's getting boring - never mind our recent brand of football - and there comes a point where you just have to say 'no, let's stick this time' because to keep twisting out of blind hope is no way to run a football club.

There is literally no other manager out there right now who will realistically come to Grimsby Town and guarantee improvement. Frankly, I'm getting tired of reading the same topics, the same rants, the same discussions that all eventually lead to you-know-who's stranglehold on the club, and until that changes our fortunes will remain the same.

If budget guaranteed league position then County would be near the top so I dont get some of the comments, MJ has had a budget good enough to be competitive but you do have to question some of the signings and decisions this season,
Letting our two most creative wide players leave at Xmas, signing Welsh who reportedly was one of the highest wage earners and not playing him, extending Vernam and Cardwells contracts for another season when neither have shown anything near good enough this season to warrant being in a L2 side.
MJ is obsessed with playing a system that requires wing backs and pace and we lack both with this team, Today was a fine example of his lack of experience, Chopping and changing formation with no clear plan of how to break county down, How Woolford gets in the team in beyond me and playing Rose up front on his own then hoofing the ball over his head all the time just does not work.
Lastly do we ever practice corners or set pieces because for weeks we either hit them a foot off the floor or so deep they go straight out of play, County today looked worlds apart from us a set pieces which really does worry me.
One positive today was Max coming on near the end and showing why he was so highly thought of at Boston.

I do fear a bit what MJ will do next season with what ever budget he is given based on some of the signings he has made this season.

Quoted from moosey_club


Then he has to adapt what he wants to do....Notts County looked shite today in general play....for all the budget and profile players they have they still look like a Sam Allardyce/ Kev Nolan style side that plays for free kicks and corners...and then deliver those into dangerous areas...score a goal and then just disrupt play at every opportunity.....its awful to watch but their players knew what to do.....with our 2/3 different formations and systems today we didnt look like we knew what we were doing and resulted to lumping it up to a small inexperienced striker.



Like I say over thinking it rather than getting the ball and numbers Forward quickly

I agree.

One win in 12 is it? That must be relegation form, if after 10 games next season with his new players and we are in the same form then he surely has to go.

We can not have another Woods situation.

For me MJ has done a good job with a meagre budget.

It has been a big learning curve for him, his first full season of first team management. At times he has got us playing some good football and other times bloody awful.

Where I think he has been naive is the formation. FGR opening game of the season we lined up exactly as England did in the WC and we all saw it didn’t work. He changed and we played relatively well, and we went back to it and for the second time .... it didn’t work .. what we didn’t have was a plan B. No wingers in the squad which is proven to work in L2..

What about him?

Do you have him in mind to replace Jolley when the witch-hunt forces him out of Town?

Has just taken Norwich up to the premier league, under pressure at the end of last season, sold his best players, brought in freebies and outcasts, he had zero experience of the championship and the board stuck by him and allowed him time to get it sorted... does it ring any bells?!
