Quoted from The Old Codger


He tweeted to say that Ollie would quit if the fans wanted him to. That is something entirely different to what you have just said.


So JT tweeted that IH was willing/ready to quit? Thought so!

I mean perhaps Holloway is looking for a get out. Perhaps he realises he was hoodwinked the club and his own hyperbole is now catching him out.

The club hasn’t moved forward, isn’t well run as he claims and lacks any ambition for him to truly turn us around and make us in to something at least half decent?

Or may be Holloway is just using some weird reverse psychology and the whole thing has been taken out of any sort of context?

Quoted from Lincoln Mariner 56


Not for the first time I disagree with your opinion. Interviews after heavy defeats will always get emotional and spikey and personally I had no problems with JT’s questions but I do object as stated in a previous post about his Twitter comments later in the evening.

Anyway the reason I disagree relates to Ollie’s interview on Friday when he referred to plans not only for January but next season as well with regard player recruitment. This interview was given when Ollie was not steamed up, embarrassed and no doubt f....ing annoyed about a performance that had only ended half an hour before.

I just see no value in rolling the managerial dice yet again. In previous posts I acknowledge Ollie has got his recruitment wrong, something I believe he privately accepts, but I don’t expect him to slate those players in public and expect we will know what he feels as players leave. I do think he was probably naive on the difficulty that exists in getting players to join Grimsby and I think this was not helped by the pandemic and our clubs approach to player contracts.

Let’s not forget he has not been here for 12 months yet and five of those were spent twiddling thumbs and planning for a variety of scenarios that the club could face because of the pandemic. Hopefully, he is now much wiser, and as a consequence player recruitment will improve. Whoever is in charge wholesale changes are required and despite yesterday’s result I personally want Ollie to be in charge of that. Just over a year ago Lincoln were conceding six at home to Oxford and their league position shows much can change in a short period of time if you trust your Manager.


I am not advocating Holloway should leave or stay for that matter I am past caring frankly. The avalanche of players desperate to play for him was total balderdash (apart from Billy Clarke who I suspect just wanted a job for a season) and he has signed a load of players not capable of playing to his system (or he is not capable of putting his system in place) He arrived based on past glories to a wonderful welcome from thousands of hopeful fans starved of success.

As for fans blaming Fenty btw please remember Holloway knew EXACTLY what the postion and Fenty's approach was before he started (he had to go Dutch on the fish and chip welcome lunch probably)

We are not likely to recruit anyone with a bigger name (if that counts for anything) or more experienced and knowledgeable so we may as well stick with him for better or worse but I am not sure he will stick it out and any criticism from the fans (quite justifiably) or RH would be a tailor made excuse to quit

Sadly I am not convinced he is going to turn things around and I don't have the blind belief some appear to have. I would be delighted to be proved wrong as I want to see GTFC progress up the league(s) as much as the next man but it appears many would be satisfied if we finished one place above Scunny (lets hope they dont end up 24th!)



Well I did try to tell you all Holloway was a mistake

Quoted from ska face


The Lincoln board invested a six-figure fee in September, on top of a massive share issue to the fans, described as the biggest round of investment seen since the current Chief Exec had been at the club.

Where are our board?



There is only one man on our board with a pot to urine in and if he puts any more money in he will merely be adding to the loan everone is constantly moaning about

Quoted from Rob_in_Grimsby
Here is the full interview JT was referring to  to put things in to context



That’s not the full interview though is it? It’s just a transcript of what Holloway said. It’s not in context because it doesn’t show what came before. Or any follow up question.

You’re just doing what some are accusing JT of.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Why did JT feel the need to cherry-pick one line from a previously published interview? This thread demonstrates the answer- he wanted to cause controversy....and succeeded!

Quoted from Tinymariner


And from that, JT tweeted that IH was ready to quit? It’s JT who should be resigning, absolutely shocking journalism. Hang your head in shame JT. How he can call himself a Town fan is beyond me, shite stirring as usual.


“If they want to come round my house and tell me to go home, I’ll stop selling it and buying one here"

“All those unhappy people, just come and tell me, it’s not a problem. If it’s all the Grimsby fans, then it isn’t a quibble, I’ll go. No problem if that’s what you want.



You clearly have a problem understanding English. You can get classes for it if you want.
