It’s been the same with us - we need to beat the same team.Grimsby fans forum accepting we were the better side and saying their team put in the worst performance of the season.... every team we have beaten this season has said they played their worst game??
Grimsby fans thought our side were soft and falling all over the place, yet from a Barrow perspective Grimsby looked like a team of thugs. it's always interesting to see the blinkered views of (both) sets of fans at a match.
Grimsby should comfortably get back to winning ways against Hartlepool - whilst our next 4 league games are Crewe (H), Colchester (H), Crawley (A) and Hartlepool (H)
I don't think it will turn toxic.Too many still up the chairman's backside, it's all Hartley's fault etc, his 'generous' budget being misspent. Doyles.
It's Raj's fault and his alone that we've ended up in this situation. He shafted Challinor, hangs a seasoned ex Poolie in Lee out to dry. The summer, he admitted he'd never heard of Hartley and didn't even speak to the guy yet gives him free rein to be out of his depth. Signing his shite on long deals, I mean how in the actual fuck was this allowed? Besides Cooke, the only player with recent L2 experience was a defender signed from Walsall on loan ffs . Out of what 15 or 16? What kind of strategy is this?
I can go on and on but I don't know if a toxic atmosphere is what's needed as I don't think the majority of players aren't trying. It's just that they are fucking hopeless and toxicity might make things even worse. 3700 in last night, that will get worse . Its probably the better way for Raj to notice as that sort of stuff kills him on the inside. A cockroach calling him a c***, booing the players when he's not even in the ground isn't gonna cut it.
We've gone from the best home record in Europe,great football, 6000 fans,fantastic atmosphere,to 1 win 25 games in less than 18 months.i didn't realise things had gotten quite that bad..... do you need HG's therapist's number
Cheer up.I was slated for suggesting these 3 games (Orient, Stockport and Tranmere) would see us found out.
After back to back defeats in the league it’s now looking like I was right, sadly.
Really pissed off with tonight’s poor display. Our worst of the season by a distance. A relegation standard performance. Lacklustre, no energy, players looked absolutely fucked from the first minute, a nothing performance, but not surprised one bit. I know we have injuries, but the fact we can’t rotate and are fielding players who aren’t in the right condition to play, exposes what a poor squad we have.
We were so slow paced I actually thought we dragged Stockport’s performance down, they played slow, because we were that shite. If they’d upped it more they could have probably put 6 or 7 past us the way we played. Dreadful.
This will become a regular thing as we continue to come up against half competent teams with our weak as piss squad after the favourable set of fixtures we’d had previously. 3 defeats in a row in all competitions. Well and truly found out. Not looking good at all.
Only positive is I didn’t end up going. What a waste of time and money that could have been.
If it's any consolation I thought your lads were decent second half, - bag o' shite first half, of course, but definitely came back into it after the break and had some good, probing periods of possession, I was convinced you'd get level until the gorgeous passing bit of play that made up our second.Didn’t get to go to Stockport game in the end, but it seemed like a game probably lost by circumstances before the players even walked into the pitch.
Once tactics and style are changed due to issues and suspensions to accommodate glaring gaps and the solution is round pegs in square holes your always on the back foot before a ball is kicked.
Probably be the same Saturday, Simpsons best approach is to just ride out this week the. Focus on trying to kick start it again with the fa cup.
If there was a moment to slate it is that you set up defensive with the view goals will be hard due to a lack of options it is then unforgivable to not mark runners and leave glaring gaps for that run threw on first goal…….the whole point of a solid formation is to reduce gaps not widen them.
The second goal was a lovely move culminating with a fantastic header. I would say though that Callum Guy shouldn't have messed around with Paddy Madden. He should've tripped him or pushed him out of play. We have become more robust under Simpson but at times still play too fair.If it's any consolation I thought your lads were decent second half, - bag o' shite first half, of course, but definitely came back into it after the break and had some good, probing periods of possession, I was convinced you'd get level until the gorgeous passing bit of play that made up our second.

Buy cheap, Buy twice.We've gone from the best home record in Europe,great football, 6000 fans,fantastic atmosphere,to 1 win 25 games in less than 18 months.
We've got two decent players & one isn't even ours,the rest aren't fit for Sunday morning football.
We've also been reduced to signing garbage like Robinson.
So yes,its that bad.
Maybe should have taken a gamble on the Gambler (sorry)Yup.
Some of our more delusional fans think Raj will spend in January.
There was no money spent in the summer,last summer or last January when the club was on the up.
I can't see him suddenly spending it in a few months time.
He wasn't allowed to sign.Maybe should have taken a gamble on the Gambler (sorry)
Could have played maybe 6-7 games by now and i,m pretty sure the picture would have been rosier.
He wasn't allowed to sign.
I do have a slight hope Singh will spend but only because his ego might not accept another footballing failure. He knows he's fucked up as well and he won't be comfortable with that. Will blame it on others though.
Curle sounded utterly fed up after the Salford defeat.Curle will get him to put his hand in his pocket to get what’s needed to stay up, otherwise he’ll walk.
