Ian Holloway is one of life’s enthusiasts and it is great to have such a high profile manager. He has given everyone a lift and we even had a Sky reporter at Mansfield giving live updates on TV. Holloway relates to ordinary people and to hear him talk about disabilities is moving. I don’t think we could have got anyone better and I hope it all works out. We should not expect miracles but getting up the table initially and making us look forward to watching the games will be enough for me. It is about time GTFC had a morale booster and I want to thank everyone who has brought this about. Thank you, thank you.

Think it's a combination of the above. Be very suprised if IH has instilled anything big tactically, think he's only lead training once, maybe twice. Played with some heart & desire which is all most town fans want and that was probably the difference.

In truth we've got 6 points from Akheem's scuffed shot and a Mansfield player getting on the end of a cross... we're still not clinical but if this is where we're at now then I'm looking forward to seeing us improve. This league isn't anything special if we can  go 15 without a win then win 2 on the bounce.

It's a grand time to be a town fan, it may or may not be the start of something special but I'll enjoy it while it lasts.

Its what Mr Holloway brings to the table, experience as a player and manager, contacts, media exposure etc.

For moment the doom and gloom has been lifted around BP and been replaced with Holloway sparkle.

I’d say it’s a bit of all those things but I think the main one will be the belief instilled in them by IH 👍


Grimsby and proud!

What I like about him is he talks from the heart, says it as he see’s it, without any mumbo jumbo. I think it’s how he gets his messages over to the players, he speaks plainly and instils faith in them, and I would be very surprised if he ever uses PowerPoint to get his message over.

I have never seen opposition supporters waiting to see our manager and then getting autographs and photos from him as he walked to the dugouts. The man just brings charisma and charm.

This is gonna be the biggest topic count going.  So, we win 1-0 away at Mansfield. We have 10 men for 80 minutes of the game, quick substitution, and we get 3 points. So.… is it Olly closeness, AL,s help. a bit of luck, the lads playing their hearts out, ref decisions, a bad Mansfield team?, its all yours. Are we under the spell of success?, I admit its a great start from Olly, but was it his doing?, all yours


All of the above 😉
