The best I have seen Town play for a very long time,

Everybody played their part but Vernam was in a class of his own. We better get him signed up on a long contract now because bigger clubs will have taken notice of his class. His 3rd goal was the best goal since Barnes waltz through the Brazil team all those years ago.

Sadly I can not make it Saturday but I hope a big crowd turn up because this team deserves it.

Well done to all and a special thank you to Ollie,

We are going places with this man.

Cracking game and agree Vernam deserves a long contract, .we had one or two scary moments in our own box apart from that we were in control over a good side that will be up there at the end of the season. If we can keep playing like this we will be as well.


I LOVE GRIMSBY TOWN

What a performance with 5 changes against a team that havent lost at home since October or conceded 3 goals in a game this season. Shows we have strength in depth and Ollie getting the best out of them all. Bodes well for the rest of the season but would like to see Pollock and Hanson back in for Saturday to tighten up at the back and add more moving forward. Also asking Green to start 2 in 4 days would be too much given the time he's had out.

We look confident on the ball, expansive and exciting when attacking and a win against Morecombe on Saturday will start to see us edging closer to the playoffs, especially with the 2 games still in hand.

Holy excrement! We have a player on our hands in Charles Vernam. Now I wonder why Jolley sent him to Chorley. I love a striker with confidence and he oozed it that game.

Probably the best GTFC goal I've ever seen live. Love how much Glennon is obviously enjoying playing for us. Even the officials didn't ruin a great night!

I gotta admit I also thought like others Ollie was having his first ‘moment’ when I saw the line up - but I waited to see what would unfold and wow I was impressed - Hewitt looked good and up for it , almost like he had a point to prove - which is exactly what you want from a bench player. Again the Burnley boys absolutely superb - Tilley was clearly excited to have his first start for the club - lots and lots of positives and plenty of good exciting attacking football with plenty of passing to players! It’s just great - and finally Chaz - take a bow son you sir are showing us all what a player you are - what a night you had - just fantastic
A win on Saturday and the last 14 games could be very interesting indeed

Seen this one bought up a couple of times in the last week but nobody was complaining at the time he was sent on loan. He was lacking in confidence and the time on loan seemed to help him a lot as he could work on his game away from the eyes of our fans. He's somebody where you could tell there is a good player in there it just takes the right things to bring him out of his shell. I still don't think the decision to send him on loan at the time was wrong and it's in the past anyway, he's doing really well under IH and that's all that matters. We've had players before who didn't do well that went on to flourish under another manager and vice versa with players labelled as trash by other team's fans who went on to be really good for us.

Back at 0145, 400 miles for 90 minutes of football must be mad but it is Town! Yes a little dubious over IH selection to start and felt uneasy when we went one down but total respect to the 11 out there who fought against a good side in poor conditions. Obviously CV MoM but the work rate of Benson, Tilley and Glennon in the middle of the park was exceptional. Nice to have been part of the vocal 270 who witnessed an astonishing goal by Charlie, but we do need a song for the lad. Great day/night with more to come.

Yeah, agreed.  Loan spell was just what he needed, be it to give him a wake up or build his confidence.  Whatever it was, it's played a key role in his turnaround.

Similar to when Jack Lester went on loan to Doncaster many moons ago.  Couldn't really get going in the Town team, despite showing promise, came back a different player and really kicked on.  

Essential now that we just tie him down to a new deal. As great as the hat-trick was the attention that will come from the solo goal, it raises his profile to other clubs.

The difference here being that Jack was loaned out to get him some first team experience to help him in his development and to help prepare him for our first team.
Vernam was loaned out because the Manager didn't rate him or trust him, and it was the start of CV being shipped out of the club.

I think Anthony Limbrick deserves great credit for the turnaround in CV. Getting him back here almost immediately after he took caretaker charge. The run of games (starts) he gave him. The confidence was growing. But then I do think Holloway has taken it now to another level, with his man-management and the trust/belief he seems to instill in players.

Going back best part of 25 years but I thought Lester was a similar position.  Laws didn't seem to rate him and was using him sparingly (at best) and to be fair he had done very little in his limited appearances to suggest he would be the player he turned out to be.

Kenny Swain brought him back into the fold and he was a far improved player.  Then under Buckley the next season he went to the next level, albeit with a still quite shocking goal record for us.  

Totally agree on the Limbrick/Holloway points.  Perfect storm at the right time for the lad.

Good to finally see Tilley get time, and for me, I can see why Holloway rates him, he will be massive next season IMO.

When he has the ball, you genuinely have no idea what he's going to do, so quick and clever with it at his feet! one I'm excited about

What a night. Whilst Vernam's third goal was exquisite, I thought first goal was also brilliant where we made so many quick first time passes and left Colchester for dead. It took my breath away.  So refreshing to see two teams playing football. We will hold our own against any team in our division who do. Felt like we were back to the AB glory days.

Scary to see such a new stadium in the middle of nowhere with only 2500 home fans.

Bit before my time. I’m guessing 17th/18th century.
Which of the Stuart’s was that one about? Chuck II or (Bonny Prince) Chuck ‘III’? 😉

How about -

Clap hands, here comes Charlie
Clap hands, good time Charlie
Clap hands, here comes Charlie now

I'm sure you could do something with that.

Here's the tune if it's before your time! (Being kind here! )

Perhaps so that those racist fans at Bradford can easily join in:

I don't know.... some guys have all the luck, picking and choosing when to watch!  

What a game to attend though Pete....  made up for you and everyone else who went there last night

I don't think any of us have seen such a brilliant individual goal as Charlie's third ( and probably never will again ) but not just that, it was the ethic the whole team had

Twice behind ( and unlucky to be so imho ) but we came back twice and then put the cherry on top of the icing on the cake

If that doesn't add a few more to the attendance at BP on Saturday I don't know what will

Shame you can't make it but as I've said elsewhere, get yourself up here for the play offs

I must admit I was taken aback the other night when Peter Swann was on RH

I heard him talking about a Scunthorpe lad....

He did say James Verman though so maybe he had someone else in mind
