Hmm...our Council actually requested to be moved to tier 2 so they could access more funding. Let's hope we're not in tier 3 when we're out of lockdown!

Great Wakering Rovers more like (love that name, say it like Porky Pig)

Joking aside; is there still no light at the end of the tunnel? Has your owner not decided it is easier if you pay the bills before you get taken to court?

We still have a transfer embargo in place even though some of the debts have been paid off.

Our Embargo lasts until May next year. Two years in total even though our owners have never failed to make a payment.
You can still get players in, just no fees transfer or agent fees to be paid.

We brought in Sarcevic and Doyle on those conditions

Jabo has retired.
11 different clubs.

Was so highly rated here when he first burst onto the scene with us back in 2000, but injuries ruined him and took their toll on him after he broke through. He was once very, very quick but a year long injury from November 2004-September 2005 meant he ended up changing his all round game and he became more of a targetman.

Served the lower leagues well!

BBC Cumbria have already booked him to join as a summariser for the FGR game.

In fairness they may have booked him before he announced his retirement as he has been without a club this season.

Grimsby fans must be slightly concerned at who attended their game yesterday?

He's been trying to find someone stupid enough to allow him in 'invest' in their Club for ages. This is the guy who, when trying to get his foot in the door at Notts County, told everyone he had a hand at Lincoln and Darlington previously only for both Club's to ask who the hell he was.

A guy called Alex May, which isn't his birth name because he changed it.

Because of the link, it seems Fenty has jumped from his Councillor position before he was pushed from it. All very weird.

No matter how much of a shitshow we are, Grimsby will always go one better.

I am so glad they are our rivals.

I've seen two statements from Holloway yesterday. One from his Twitter, basically telling Fenty and Shutes to sort themselves out and stop playing politics with the Club and there was another where he seemed to indicate he's backing Fenty.

Shutes and Fenty seem to have been posturing with each other for years now.

I quite liked his tweets tbh, IMO you can see he is clearly dedicated to the job. But on the other hand, he is basically saying he is now managing a huge mess behind the scenes.

Big gamble on how his bosses will react to that too.

Yeah fair play to him for sticking his head above the parapet. I don't think any Grimsby fan would argue against what he's done or put.

The stats suggest we should be comfortably mid table and I'm hoping under the new manager we can achieve that. We've scored a far greater number than those around us but we've been leaky at the back. Yesterday showed if we defend well enough we're capable enough to keep breathing space between ourselves and the drop zone.

We've had a number of high scoring games, 4-3 and 4-2 defeats, a 4-2 win, 3-3 draw. Yesterday we had a back three that played together all of last season and their understanding was clear to see.

Ian Holloway on Soccer AM on Saturday.
Expect him to tell them that he’s staying for the full show, only for them to come back after the first ad break and find he’s fucked off home already.

He's Gas through & through . But that time as a manager with us has gone now.

Despite the shite team he built and the horrific performances week after week the majority of our support were still really right behind him, then he goes on Twitter saying he is not going anywhere and waxing lyrical about how amazing our fans are and then a few days later he does a runner.

Twat.

Re Carlisle; From watching one game on iFollow so it's not gospel.

They play the ball long into channels and press high up the pitch. Obviously it doesnt work every time so the ball gets passes amongst the opposition side before Carlisle win it back and play it long into the channels.

When it does work. They win the ball high up the pitch and put in a through ball or cross for the forwards to attack. Its obviously working for them.
