Let's keep the momentum going!

Another win away from home please.

FUCK YEAH!


Swindon 6/4 to win.
A Swindon, Exeter and Mansfield away treble pays 13/1.

Winning at home on Saturday is more important - we're going to drop points away from home eventually but need to improve our haul at the CG.

I think that would be fair enough.

Flitters has flagged up how difficult these long distance mid week games are, you can tell the squad is starting to creak and groan a bit with injuries, also 5 bookings starting to loom for the likes of Dunne. To get through these kind of obstacles and still get points is what gets you up.

A point might be doable, Grimsby don't score many and don't concede many, so a below par showing might be sufficient.

Didn't fancy us until this morning and suddenly feel very confident that we're going to win. 3-1 goals from Smith, Anderson and Mullin.

Would still probably take a point though.

Grimsby have not had a win in the last 6 matches. (4 league and 2 cup).

They have gone 4 consecutive home games without scoring (3x 0-0 draws and one single goal defeat).

The Grims havent scored a goal at home in the league since Sept 26th vs Colchester Utd.

They currently sit in 18th place on 23 points with 6 wins 5 draws 7 losses, scoring 19 and conceding 24.

At home they have played 9 won 2, drawing 4 with 3 defeats, scoring 14 conceding 11.

We have only ever won at Blundell Park 4 times in 21 meetings, and only ince (2003) in the last 14 matches since 1967, with only 2 draws in that time too.

2-1 defeat in front of 3,134 fans with 285 Town fans there, Dunne sent off.

Pre match mingling with the descendants of Odin in The Yarborough Hotel.

Not been here since Jan 93.
The late Paul Futcher played for them that night, as did the wonderfully named Jim Dobbin.
We lost.

Not seen the "Grimsby Army, Swindon Barmy" people for many a year.
Hopefully still keeping the faith somewhere.

Season is panning out ok so far.
Winning when not playing well. Check.
Battling until the very end to pick up points. Check.
Comeback win. Check.
Winning away at difficult Northern outpost in midweek. Pending.

Looking forward to some fish & chips later.
Sadly, unlikely to be a local catch in the former home of the largest fishing fleet in the world.
Bloody foreign fish, coming over here and battering our own fish out of a job.

Most likely Norwegan or Icelandic. Been a while since we had a cod war, I'm sure Brexit will put that right.

Back in the day, the Mariners would leave boxes of kippers about gratis to any visiting players, managers etc... I'd imagine the ref and lino could help themselves also as long as they kept quiet about it.

Ideal for a midweek game, spot of kedgeree for breakfast after the long haul back.

I don't know if that was them or not but there were a couple of blokes in their early 20s about 10 to 15 years ago that always had the flag in the Town End that said "Grimsby Army Swindon Barmy", used to go to many away games too.

No, it's not the Maulers.  There's a small group up in Grimsby that never miss a game.  Nutters.

I've always thought Mauler and Donkey should rebrand as 'Red Leicester'.  Not enough cheese references these days for my liking.

Following Wobbly Bob about 4hrs behind and having a pint in The Yarborough. Last bumped in to Mr. & Mrs Mauler at Grace Road watching the T20 cricket. Hoping to see Swindon secure the sixth away win for the first time in history so as these things always let you down then it'll be 1-1 tonight.

Moved onto The Coliseum in Cleethorpes.
Could be a wet one tonight, but thankfully it's still quite mild.

Think I can picture the Maulers, but gradual erosion of brain cells is making recollection more difficult with the passing of time.

The fish & chips was a big let down.

It's more a case of available personnel, only 4 outfield players on the bench, of whom only 1 is a midfielder. Dunne is on 4 yellows.... presumably we can recall Tom Smith at short notice  :hmmm: for Saturday.

Only 5 subs, injuries starting to mount; Hussey, McDermott, Elsnik, Linganzi and Conroy off the top of my head.

Would have liked Vigs to come back in as “RCC could have done better” is becoming a too regular occurrence for my liking but other than that the best from what is available.

I've always suspected this must be a FL record of 6 consecutive away wins, with no home games between, just because it is such a rare occurence.... although sometimes like this season Newport started off playing all their games away, as the ground wasn't ready.  However it was a mere 3 games, a win and 2 draws.

We need to call Brophy, Smith and Twine back tomorrow. No excuses. They might not all be world beaters, but we will start cheating ourselves out of points if we don't use the squad.

If we are chasing the game tonight we will effectively have 3 defenders to look to. We might as well chuck Vigs on up front. He'd probably be a better bet up there than Robertson.

The only difference in the past few weeks is the defending to be honest.  Actually it is that a team is running at us, which is precisely how Barnet took us apart.  The forward play is much of a muchness - Smith at least gives you the prospect of holding it and bringing others into the game from time to time.

Listening to the radio it does sound like a blood, guts and thunder type of game. Though it’s bound to settle down with tiredness and the conditions playing their part. There are more goals in this game, trouble is who’s going to score them? Cashout or not on the remaining three bets 🤔 tempted to cashout the 1-2 & 1-4 as I think 1-4 is going to be a stretch with they way the game is going, 1-3 more likely and judging by the cashout values so does the algorithms of their spread.

Cashout or not on the remaining three bets 🤔 tempted to cashout the 1-2 & 1-4 as I think 1-4 is going to be a stretch with they way the game is going, 1-3 more likely and judging by the cashout values so does the algorithms of their spread.

Let it run for 10/15mins in 2nd half then cash out at that score. can always reinvest

Results can paper over the cracks a little as we generally haven’t been that great most of the season. It’s as RobT says we don’t really dominate games we just generally have that extra bit of quality at key moments to nick it.
At times we do seem to get tactically outfought and ripped apart by unlikely teams and really struggle against pace and teams that take us on. I still reckon we’ll finish top 7 though as we are able to grind out results and the division is poor.

Reminded me a bit of the Barnet game that one.  They ran at us and it worked a treat when they did.  Same old stuff though overall, lump it forward, see what happens.  As it happens, we could just as easily sneaked a win as lost by a bigger margin.  Atrocious standard of football, still on target for the play offs, which is all that really matters I suppose.

Yep never looked like getting anything today even at 2-1.

Didn't create enough chances, kicked long to Smith when we needed it played on the ground with pace to run at two geriatric centre backs who mopped up all the long hoofs, the defence didn't play as a unit and the 2 strikers and 2 wingers had a field day against us, even Preston had a poorish game.

We missed Elsnik with his runs through the middle, Gordon had the wrong studs/boots on, RCC could have done a bit better with a couple of goals.

We played the wrong tactics and it backfired.

Bad day at the office today, next.

You say that but we had a clear chance at the start of the 2nd half, we had the goalie make a blinder of a save, a free kick he had to deal with and one clawed onto the post.  On another day we get 6 goals, 6!!!!!!  It's very marginal from game to game, we just have enough up top for the division to have a better hand in the game of chance over a long enough period of games.  I haven't seen one game this season, bar Dartford, where we looked in control and on top, and I haven't seen a game other than Barnet where we were utterly undone.

 This was always a difficult game... we know this side doesn't much like midweek  league fixtures that's, by my reckoning p 4 l 4

 Then having no bench, just compounds the problem. On to Newport on Saturday, definitely a pressure game, the home form needs sorting if we are to challenge.

Not a fair comment on tonight's showing. Don't look to RCC for the blame tonight, he was fine. We were good on the edges - Purkiss and Taylor were sound, Woolery was very lively all game - but from back to front we had no control in the middle. The centre halves were pulled all over the place by Grimsby's attack,  Goddard was invisible all game, Dunne was mainly bypassed and nothing went through to Smith or Anderson (bar the one chance he took).

I’m not blaming him, but in the first half especially there were far too many crosses coming in that he wasn’t making any attempt to deal with. When you have a far better keeper on the bench RCC is going to get looked at.
We were poor in general tonight and majority of blame should rest on Flitcroft for his tactics (along with the defence) as their defence was ancient but we didn’t do what they did to us and run at them. We don’t dominate teams in any of our matches so games like this are always going to happen.

Essentially, we were forced to start with an attacking line up, due to lack of bodies in midfield.  Dunne can't foul atm, with a suspension hanging over his head.  Ideally you want to bring on the cavalry later in a game, not start with it.

It's costing us on aswell as off the pitch imo. Nothing against RCC but I just feel the defence would be more assured knowing that Vigs was behind them. He was good in L1 so should be one of, if not the best, in L2.

The U18's had a game today, I'd suspect you'd be able to put more on the bench if they didn't have a game. Its weighing up them having a full 90 for U18's vs probably not coming on for the senior team.

Grimsby played at high tempo throughout, which we struggled to cope with.

If Goddard had taken that chance in 2nd half then probably game over at 3-1.

Hopefully just a minor blip and remedied with a win at the weekend.

Stop off in swindon, 2.5 hours to go.

They could/should have been 3 up after first 20 or so, we were all over the place and couldn't cope. Great strike from Anderson, lucky 2nd goal and then we looked comfortable until the break.

Always thought they would score again as they looked dangerous. We were unlucky not to get a third with goddards lovely counter attack strike but I don't have too many complaints with the result as the performance overall wasn't good enough today.

Officials were shite, blatant deflections being given as goal kicks pissed me off a treat.

Lack of subs was a big problem, hope we have some back for next game. Fucking long day, decent fish/chips, shit town, crap result but didn't have to see the mother in law - GET IN.

He's our only central midfielder currently fit, or in the case of Taylor, we haven't a fit LB to free him to play midfield.

His game is about competing for the ball so inevitably bookings follow, Flitters has told him he can't afford another yellow atm.

Talent can be difficult to manage, but that also takes a good manager. Who thought Ferguson would accommodate Cantona's behaviour? Vigs is a much better keeper than this level, and doesn't Power have £400k to recoup from somewhere? Is it all Vigs' fault, or might Flitcroft also be a bit of a blunt instrument?

And it's not like DF is the first manager to have problems with Vigs is it? If he's not careful, he's going to end up warming the bench in L1/L2 and then drifting out the game.

Talent can be difficult to manage, but that also takes a good manager. Who thought Ferguson would accommodate Cantona's behaviour? Vigs is a much better keeper than this level, and doesn't Power have £400k to recoup from somewhere? Is it all Vigs' fault, or might Flitcroft also be a bit of a blunt instrument?

Ferguson tended to show them the door as soon as they got too big for their boots..... pretty basic management.

I think you have to earn the right to get away with being a talented pain in the arse, something not often applicable to a 4th division goal keeper.

The tide seems to have turned very quickly on Vigs. He was virtually ever-present until a few weeks ago, and viewed as maybe better than Foderingham. I didn't see much questioning of his attitude in all that time. I wouldn't be writing him off just yet.

Its an odd one as ultimately no one (bar him and the club obviously) seems to know what has or in fact hasn't happened. I saw the other week the club were tweeting about certain things he was doing for FITC which would suggest that he is not too much out of favour within the club, although I suppose if you were looking for negatives you could interpret it as a punishment?

We will see him crop up in Lge2/Conference in a few years time if that attitude is anything to go by.

I'd forgotten that. Is that what he was given the fine he paid in pennies for? Still, he was on loan then and was subsequently thought worth spending proper money on, so someone thought it was manageable back then.
