It's a chicken and egg scenario though isn't it? Who in his right mind is going to entrust someone as inexperieced as Jolley with a big budget?


He’s more experienced than Woods, Rodger or Bignot.

It’s probably more complex than that in truth. Who with experience and proven ability is going to entrust their reputation and CV to Grimsby Town (and all the madness that comes with it)?

Russell Slade?

I'm not the right person to answer that, the last manager I rated / liked was Lennie Lawrence (awaits endless abuse)

Never thought I would say it but I'd have Hurst back if he gets the sack at Scunny, not that it's going to happen and Jolley still has my full support for now.

Don't think I'd want Hurst back, but I will give Jolley 2 games to impress me, if we play awful again I'll be on that "Jolley out" bandwagon like a rat up a drainpipe if I'm honest ..

Quoted from HertsGTFC
I think people would feel a little better if MJ was a little more magnanimous.


Nail on head for me. I have said previously that it would have been good to hear him explain in the summer what he had learned from his first full season in Management, why he gave up on his his intended 3-5-2 at the start of the season and how he was to adapt to meet the needs of L2.

Nothing wrong with saying after a game that he got the starting eleven and tactics wrong and what he did during the game to address things. We all attend matches and have our own view and he is known to do this when it works e.g. Exeter away and I recall Bury at home last year when players just let one of their guys stroll out with the ball despite the crowd going crazy. Never hear this when we lose than its Clifton didn’t do what we told him to !

Might as well give it to Steve Wraith then. I think he got a Sunday League side promoted a few years ago.


He's won more than Jolley then

Haha....fair point Swin....the 70s mullet would have to go though!

Without stating the obvious, the frustration is the glimpses shown. I have said it before, but Hanson can play on the deck and is mobile for his size. I don't think him being on the pitch limits us to 'plan A'.

Next week is absolutely pivotal for MJ. If there is no reaction to a 4 nil home defeat then the fat lady might be reaching for the corsodyl!!!!

Jolley doesn’t get the need to admit errors and be honest about his managerial mistakes - and his teams’ mistakes.

He also does not see that this approach annoys fans and does not encourage them to warm to him.

He has been unlucky with Max Wright getting injured.  We have one else to step into his role.

Harry Clifton has also been off-form this season and has not continued his development.  These 2 factors do not help him.
