That`s something to look forward to PH cupping his ears to the Grimsby crowd again and a proper Derby atmosphere!!!!!

I think he will get an even more hostile reception than Sir Alan Buckley got with WBA all those year`s ago and this time around not sure he won`t deserve the earache? I just hope Jolley keeps his nerve and utilises the hostile crowd to our team`s advantage a right fast start required whilst PH worries about keeping us shape and such . UTM


Be a bit odd really.

Hurst, whilst splitting the fan base during his time here, didn't really leave under a cloud.  A lot of people, myself included, felt it was the right time for him to go and that we needed someone else in to freshen things up/take us onto the next level.

He never returned here to raid the dressing room and as more and more things have emerged since his departure, it feels like he was more than justified in wanting to go elsewhere because of the constraints placed on him from the boardroom - despite his desire to move us up to the next level in terms of infrastructure.

Buckley on the other hand wasted little time in coming back to Blundell Park to take half the team with him, which annoyed a lot of people.  I seem to think he made some quite disparaging remarks about the club and also developed a bit of a rivalry with Brian Laws too.  

Not sure how I would react to Hurst coming back here to be honest, it'll add an extra bit of spice I guess but it's hardly a grudge return is it?  If people genuinely got upset about the ear-cupping thing and are still holding onto it, they might want to let go at some point...

Teams that come down SHOULD be amongst the favourites to go back up and Scunny will have a decent budget.Ex Grimsby Manager though and a slow start their fan`s will be on him like a pack of wolves they make Town fan`s seem like a patient bunch when you hear them bleating on Hullberside.


What all 2500 of them ?!!

I hate to say it but that's a top seven finish in the bag for scunny



If his time here is anything to go by, he will do well until Jan/Feb and then start to tail off.

You make some valid points but PH was never ever universally popular with the GTFC fanbase even when things were going well , Shrewsbury at one time had Henderson,Toto,Nolan,Lewis and another attacker who`s name escapes me in the starting eleven plus Danny Coyne at the Club along with Hurst and Sniffer Doig

Rodman did well for the Shrews (and for us, for that matter).

No he wasn't, he definitely was the Marmite man here.  As said, I thought it was the right time for him to go.

But all of those players you mentioned, he never poached from us.

Henderson had already gone back to Manchester United, after Bignot quite literally pushed him under a moving bus according to Aaron.
Toto had gone to Hartlepool.
Nolan to Chesterfield
LJL - Newport?

Danny Coyne had no association with GTFC when Hurst was here and was already at Shrewsbury for 3 years before Hurst arrived.

Don't get me wrong, there will be a bit of needle there and if nothing else it'll add a real fiery element to what should be a decent atmosphere anyway.  But I can't imagine how it would be anything like the Buckley return.  That was really intense, it was personal because he had come back to the club and taken so many of our players.
