To be honest, its getting a bit too much now. Ollie is everywhere, good for publicity, but it can only go so far when you think that enough is enough and lets just get on with it. He,s everywhere like a rash. Ok, hes a brilliant manager and we get where he,s going with the Club, but everywhere you look, hes there. Calm it all down and lets get on with it.


Yeah you're right, he's doing all this publicity and we are losing on the pitch, he needs to stop and concentrate!

Since his real 1st game in charge he has the following record

W - 4
D - 3
L - 2

15 points from 9 games. average of 1.66 PPG

over 46 games, average of 1.66 points will get you 76/77 points.

Last season, that would be 4th, 3/2 points off automatic...

So I agree totally, he needs to crack on and look what Klopp Is doing and average 3 Points per game as this current form isn't good enough

Cheers Chiangmai!! I'm originally from t'other end of the A15 (Barton) and got to see Town under Buckley (twice), Laws, Lawrence and first bit of Groves, before moving here in 2003 so it has been quite sad seeing the slow demise from afar. But hopefully now with Ollie in charge things can start to move upwards steadily and consistently.

Quoted from Chazzer
What an inspiration he is to Grimsby, the town as well as the club, he's put a big buzz and boost into everything. People like him are few and far between and are worth their weight in gold.

He did it to Blackpool before and instilled a sense of self-belief and feel-good factor that can't be taught or bought. Even cynics have to concede this point for however long it continues and hopefully the rest of the season and beyond.

Do any of you remember when Jack Charlton took up the ROI manager job and turned a mediocre team into world-beaters? This is similar stuff what Ollie brings: "Put em under pressure"!

Ole ole ole


Have to take issue with your last sentence - the only thing Ollie has in common with Jack Charlton is his lack of hair. Charlton's managerial career consisted of brutal, route one "football" every time, whereas Ollie's teams have always played an attractive, expansive style. So glad we've now got this man in charge - you can sense the pride returning to our club on an almost daily basis.

When I was at Teesside Polytechnic and Jack Charlton was manager of Middlesbrough he came in a gave a lecture much more insightful and reflective than you may think.

You missed my point, I wasn't referring to the style of play. It was results that changed from an inspirational pragmatic manager. Charlton took over a team that were in the shadows internationally and brought them into the top 10 in FIFA World rankings. That was sensational at the time. What I meant was that he instilled a self-belief and confidence into a team primarily of journeymen footballers and they came out expecting to win every game even against the likes of Brazil and Germany.

I'm getting a similar sense of this with Ollie and we can see the difference already.

Yea, I was thinking what we really need is a striker who's played all but one game for the second lowest scorers in the division.
