Yes we huffed and puffed but simply just not acceptable at this level for a club of our standing and support, end of.



I wouldn't say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one.

Not good Enough.

Did we think we’d won the game at 1-0? No urgency no fight no tactical nous. Errors gifting a bang average side 3 points. But how many weeks have we said that now?

If JMD was Injured, why the intercourse didnt we bring on Sousa or Wright. Not a Centre midfielder!? At no point in that 2nd half did we look like going to win that game. And thats not good enough.

Ive supported Paul a lot, but thats enough for me. 2 wins from 14, shithoused by teams like flipping Bromley. A midfield who cant create and 5 points off the Play offs.

One that got away.
Should have been out of sight first 35 but no.
Decision making by our players is dismal.
I know the first substitution was probably through injury but why not Soooos or Max to come on?
Nothing against Harry but a bit more positive please Hurst.


In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

That was the worst we’ve played at home this season. Didn’t pick the strongest 11 and made the wrong subs. Not good.

Hursts decision to go 3 in midfield at half time lost us a game we were well on top of.

It’s getting to the point where it can no longer be defended.

Good first half full of intent and width, Abraham’s was impressive and JMD took his goal well. Taylor looked a bit off but a great flick for the goal.

Second half we lost all width with the change which in turn exposed Smith all half. No idea what was going through Hursts head. After the winner he then switched back to the formation we had in the first half, why on earth change it in the first place?!

He has to go, this run of form isn’t a blip, it’s a rot and his managerial record in the past 3 years is nothing short of abysmal.

Two wingers on the bench but bring a CM on and move our best player who was running the show in all our attacking movements, then stand there for 35 minutes watching it not work before going hmmmm maybe I should make a sub and then waiting another 5 minutes before actually doing something about it.


Alan Shearer tackled by a blue peter presenter

Its taken 9 months for the board to see sense but finally Slade is out!!!!!!

Hurst has a lot to answer for today.

Just not good enough. Let go of a lead by a cheap mistake and then never looked like winning the game in the second half. Lots of huff and puff but little end product as usual and they get the chance to win it. Getting totally outgamed and outplayed by these pub teams is really not good enough.

We overreact if we win or lose, people calling others out for saying the players don't give a toss when we finally beat a team that's too crap to lose against and then we drop points to flipping Bromley. I'll assume JMD was injured and had to come off but his replacement was ineffective and we completely looked lost with the tactics in the second half. Hurst's sub phobia meant we had subs about 15 minutes after we needed to change things around and no time to really affect the game in any meaningful way. New guy should have come off way before he did, wasn't doing anything and looked blown up 10 minutes into the second half so needed to come off. Sometimes it's hard to believe we have plenty of players who have played games in higher leagues when they look lost playing against clubs like Bromley.

Just can’t believe we lost (at home) when they beat us at their place (in the manner they did) where was our fight and grit ?? I’m losing my faith in Paul Hurst now, we should have been well up for this game.


Grimsby and proud!

Don't ofter agree with you but on this occasion you are right. I am also still mightly depressed with the thought that we couldn't push the boat out for Hunt but a team bottom of Division 2 and almost bankrupt could. Our midfield today offered nothing.
