Common currently among newcomers interviews is the theme that players have been grateful for the professional way that both manager and deputy have gone about business in the other clubs where they have managed.

This seems to be making signings... and re-signing in Coke's case... a much easier process, even with the relegation to take into consideration.

With the background of new owners and upgrading of facilities as extra things to take into account, there must be a wave of good factors swathing over potential new players.

Sometimes, it takes a complete clear out and starting at the bottom with better systems in place again to breed success.

Any new version of the team still have to produce the goods on the playing field, but there is now a solid infrastructure for Hurst and Doig to promote.

Never seen Hurst smile so much recently !! Can the two of them also bring in decent loanees to the standard of Matete again this season?

Positivity - seems to be the new season buzzword !!

Those ripples of enthusiasm will extend far and wide too and that can only be good for all involved

Whereas once upon a time the way Town's board had a stranglehold on events stifled progress, the way things are currently going so swimmingly is bound to eventually reach a much wider population of players who might think we are worth considering

Positivity breeds positivity

To be fair it's not often you get players 'follow' a certain manager around in their career. So fair play to PH and I hope it pulls off for us. UTM

Tbh, I think you do. I think if a player fits into a managers system, then the trust/relationship develops. I remember Buckley always trusting Paul groves, runaway was the same when he signed Kevin Phillips for Crystal Palace and there was someone (can’t remember who) that Harry redknap always used to sign.

But I agree, it’s good that we have someone like PH who can build that kind of rapport with players


In a neat little town they all call Grimsby
Apprentice to a tradeI was bound
And many's an hour's sweet happiness
Have I spent in this neat little town.

A sad misfortune came over me
Which caused me to stray from the land
Far away from my friends and relations
Never Betrayed by the black and white band.

Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black and white band.

I bet Hursty feels good about doing deals with new players and not having someone behind his back saying 'Can't you get any cheaper'.

I think we're seeing what can be achieved when responsible people are trusted to do their job.

I'm not saying Paul Hurst is the best manager in the world, but he's capable, he's hard working, and clearly JS and AP trust his work ethic and judgment to build a team and perform well next season.

I doubt Hurst is being monitored or micromanaged by an unhinged director. The freedom and trust he's afforded will be liberating, and probably motivates him to do more.

And that attitude will filter down to the players he signs, and the players they play with, and the youth players, and their families, and the fans will see all this and... well, we know what can happen when a bit of positivity grips the town.

I'm not going all Uri Geller or anything but if we're all in a positive frame of mind we're less inhibited and free to express our talents. Really, really excited for the season ahead.

I agree, these two don’t look the sort to want to micromanage or interfere in something like the plying side but they have made it clear that people with responsibility will be held to account, PH included. I like that and I’d imagine PH does on a professional level, even if it puts more pressure on him.

Interesting that the players he got a tune out of at Ipswich were the ones he brought in, the ones who weren’t scrap heap premiership types…

Obviously he knows his bounds but there cant be too many other clubs that have said to their Manager so much as "spend what you need".

We know Hurst has been given a "figure" by the board but we also know that he can stretch the budget if need be.

That must be the heaviest weight off his shoulders. No wonder he is smiling in every interview now.

Probably because he hasn't got a monkey on his back!
