Disappointed to see em both go.


In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

I think this is probably the players choice for whatever reason, maybe Whitmore thinks he’s not played enough or RHJ wants to move closer home, I don’t know. I think the club might’ve wanted both to stay as they’re not bad players and sometimes it’s easier to keep players rather than replace them like for like.

Realistically though both were pretty much squad players who we hoped would develop. RHJ is a decent utility player who could probably do a job anywhere, but will he replace Hendrie permanently in his favoured RB role? No. Whitmore is a player who I’ve heard people say “does a job”, but is he better than Davis or Öhman? Not for me.

So all in all, if it’s true then good luck to both, but hardly a huge blow is it?

Glad Whitmore has gone, looked below the standard regularly. Surprised about RHJ very versatile and often our best centre half in a 352.

Very disappointed that either have gone. What's that now -6 gone 0 in-looking very exciting at the moment I must say.  Must be big signings in the pipeline and he is just clearing room for them

Not sure what to think. Whitmore is average I'd say and probably a conference standard centre back in clinical terms so can't be too disappointed but I would probably have kept RHJ. I hope this means that we are looking at a general upgrade in standards in all positions, which is a positive. The standouts for me, on that basis, are Cardwell and Ring, neither of whom are good enough IMO.

Who says we didn't offer RHJ a contract? You make it sound like MJ has let him go...
