Title: Grimsby Town vs Swindon Town matchday thread
Post by: molepar on Friday, September 23, 2022, 08:08:01
This is my first time starting one of these. Heading into this with back to back wins and possibly some signs of sustained improvement and playing identity on the pitch? I am going to stay with a friend in Leeds this evening and then will get started on the beers fairly promptly tomorrow. Any idea how many we have sold? COYR  :pint:

Grimsbly can't seem to win at home, but don't concede many goals either.
I reckon we can nick this 1-0.

Grimsby are on a very good run, also unbeaten since the opening day fixture but they have only played 8 so are 7 games unbeaten vs our 8 games unbeaten.

They are in 8th place on 15 points scoring 8 and conceding just 5 times, with us in 11th place on 14 points scoring 10 and conceding 8 times.

L A Orient 0-2
D H Northampton 1-1
W A Rochdale 1-0
D H Sutton 0-0
W A Walsall 2-1
W A Newport 2-0
D H Gillingham 1-1
W A Colchester 1-0

Their leading scorer is midfielder Harry Clifton on 4 goals.

Rotherham are said to be looking at Grimsby manager Paul Hurst to replace outgoing new Derby manager Paul Warne.

In all games vs Grimsby Swindon have won 21 of the 48 games played drawing 10 and losing 17, Town scoring 75 and conceding 58 times.

Swindon are unbeaten in the last 3 meetings with 2 wins and a draw.

In games at Grimsby though its a totally different story with Town winning only 5 times in the 24 meetings at Blundell Park with 4 draws and 15 defeats, with us scoring 25 and conceding 40 times.

Swindon have only won twice there in the last 16 meetings, one of those being the last meeting when we thrashed them 3-0 under Wellens in 2019 whrn Doyle and x2 for Yates scored the goals in front of a meagre crowd of just 3,723 (318 Town fans) Grimsby won 11 of those 16 meetings since 1967. Our win of 3-0 being our best win there and we havent lost by more than a 2 goal margin since 1957 when they beat us 3-0.

Paul Hurst the Grimsby manager pre game.

Quote
Swindon have retained most of the squad that made the play-offs last year and have good players; good in possession; will be a tough test

Not sure I would say that 5 1st teamers (Iandolo, Reed, Williams, Gladwin and Baudry) 2 of which (Baudry and Iandolo havent really played that much) from last season is "most of the squad", thats 6 if you count Aguiar on the bench.

It should be a good test on Saturday, Grimsby have started the season better than their non-league fellow promoted side Stockport who many fancied to 'piss the league'. There are a few interesting team snippets that warrant some discussion.

Injuries to Lavinier and MacDonald. Are they fit? If not, I am pretty comfortable that Baudry/Brennan can slot in at centre back and Hutton has started to look good at RB.

Who replaces Williams? I guess Darcy or (unlikely) Aguiar.

Good minutes in midweek for Ellis and RHM who sounded very lively. It will be good to get continued minutes in the legs this weekend as getting these guys up to match sharpness should mean we have great squad competitiveness for the winter months.

Think Old Macdonald is OK. Not sure on Lavinier. Khan for Williams I reckon. Murphy to come on for last 20 minutes. Lindsey said he wasn’t too keen on Jephcott and The Wakeling starting together.

Got choices now.

I would go Wakeling for Williams, I would start Jephcott and push Wakeling wide left/right with Shade on the other wing.

                            Brynn
Hutton/Lavinier  Macdonald    Clayton   Blake-Tracey
           Gladwin       Reed         Darcy
 Shade                 Jephcott                  Wakeling

I do disagree with Lindsey on this as I feel Wakeling can do the "Yates style" role wide. If not though Khan must start.

I am sure thats how Lindsey wanted to play until he realised he bought a target man who wasn't very good in Adeloye, hence us getting Hutton and Shade in.

Don't dislike that line-up at all JJ. I also agree on your comment about Wakeling. He has similar attributes in that he never stops running, never gives the defenders a moments peace and knows how to finish.

Hutton has put some great crosses in last 2 games. Need a lump in the middle!

Gladwin also has the ability to put in a decent curling cross from the number 10 position. Is that lump Jephcott?

Got a feeling Khan will start with Reed and Gladwin in a 3. Hopefully Wakeling will start but wouldn't be surprised if Darcy starts instead. It's a shame that Williams is becoming the most unused international of all time.

Like that line up. Definitely worth giving it a go.
Unlike the consensus I think Wakeling is more of a Sam Parkin than a Jerry Yates and would be better utilised in the box.

Don’t think we can go 2 upfront due to our wingers or lack of

Pre match taking the medicinal waters in The Coliseum Picture Theatre.
Or coffee in this case.
Might be better served by taking in some bracing estuarine air along the prom.
Is that good for a bout of consumption?
Will try not to cough too much in the away end.

Makes a refreshing change to not be coming here in the depths of Winter.

Bit of deja vu for those making the journey by road I guess.

The warm inner glow of an easy win on last visit.
Only 2 of that matchday squad left now.
Think it will be very competitive today.

Played Grimsby on this day once before, in 1994.
Two late goals in an entertaining 3-2 home win.
Same again in our favour would do.

Looking at their squad, the left back Glennon might be thrilled to know that he plays for Swindon in the alternate reality of my FM22.
Otis Khan, once mooted as a possible transfer target.
Not quite as many clubs as Trevor Benjamin but he's getting there.
Also the forward Orsi, one season with Hungerford.
His numbers aren't bad albeit at mainly non league level.
One to keep an eye on today maybe.

Good to see the Maidstone Maldini back in the squad.
If he was fitter would be tempted to play him in the Williams role.
Good option to have for 15-20 minutes off the bench at the end.

Hopefully our hopes will not flounder on the banks of the Humber Estuary today.

Gladwin is a different level so far, just don't ask him to chase the ball too much and pass to his feet.

Khan controlling midfield too.


Title: Re: Grimsby Town vs Swindon Town matchday thread
Post by: Nemo on Saturday, September 24, 2022, 14:28:26
I think that's the best half I've seen us play all season, and we've done without our two best players on paper. Very pleased with that.

Gladwin is having a stormer. We all know he's not the most mobile (but definitely better this season), but his ball control and vision is just so much better than League Tow standard. He's a quarterback, and he's been terrific so far.

Props too for Wakeling, who is an absolute nuisance and an excellent defender, helping out Hutton plenty and allowing him to shine too. Almost the opposite situation on the other side, where Shade - despite occasionally being a defender - is offering FBT far less cover and Grimsby have had more luck down that side as a result. FBT has been our target man from set plays though and done an excellent job of that. In the middle, Khan is having a good game and doing all Gladwin's running for him. Darcy the weakest of the three but by no means doing poorly.

Their goal was mostly bad luck in terms of deflections, no huge individual or system error there. Our goals were well worked. Really pleased to see our progress and excited for the second half.

Good ball from Hutton, he spotted the pass to Gladwin well. Gladwin is such a different player this year…. And cam from Darcy to finish it off. Good move. Let’s get ourselves a cushion, and bring RHM on to run them ragged at the end.

Post by: Nemo on Saturday, September 24, 2022, 14:29:45

There's talent there for sure, but he looks like a player whose just arrived on loan or something - on a different wavelength to the rest of the team as you say. A rough diamond, for now at least I think he's a better option off the bench against tired legs when we have Williams around as an option.

Wakeling is a revelation. Gladwin,on this form has few equals at this level.Darcy showing great maturity but Khan,for me,outstanding making light of Reed's absence.


Title: Re: Grimsby Town vs Swindon Town matchday thread
Post by: Pericardinho on Saturday, September 24, 2022, 14:33:12
We look considerably better without Reed.

Last year we were lost without him.

Khan can at least drive forward or swivel on it when there’s not much on.




Title: Re: Grimsby Town vs Swindon Town matchday thread
Post by: RobertT on Saturday, September 24, 2022, 14:34:01
I haven't seen the reason why, but Khan can have the deeper midfield role for the rest of the season on that half.  We are not using Reed well at all this season but Khan fits what we need there so much more effectively.

Gladwin is a Rolls Royce on the ball today, although he is also an Austin Maestro tracking runners.  One of his best performances for us, like Vale away in the league game last season.

Shade is a nothing player based on what I have seen so far this season amd today reinforces that.  Jephcott and Wakeling look very good together though.  Almost Doyle and Yates like.

Overall that's the best half I have seen from us this season.  Still some wrinkles defending runs and balls down the sides, bit looking a threat on the ball.  Still keeping possession at times but it seems to be done to get control when needed and then mixed with some intent.


Title: Re: Grimsby Town vs Swindon Town matchday thread
Post by: WEBBERhyde on Saturday, September 24, 2022, 14:34:51
Gladys once again looking absolute mustard. So calm on the ball. As is Khan.

Shade needs to take note - he clearly thinks highly of his own ability and wants to prove it, but in doing so has been a liability. He beat the Grims right back brilliantly early in the half and had a simple lay-off to Darcy who had time and space for a free shot on goal, but of course had to do it himself. Very frustrating. Less said the better about his defensive support down our left.

Town looking decent overall though. jephcott finding the ball falling to him in the box a lot at the start of the half and getting shots away, is very encouraging. Wakeling lively too in defence and attack.


Title: Re: Grimsby Town vs Swindon Town matchday thread
Post by: Nomoreheroes on Saturday, September 24, 2022, 14:35:12
I feel compelled to post....Not sure whether it's just because the midweek game was so poor, but that first half was superb. The only frustration being that we are always capable of making a mistake at the back

Jephcott and Wakeling scaring them to death up front. Hutton played his best 1/2 in a Town shirt for me. Gladwin showed that he is better without Williams in the team. Khan winning everything in midfield.

Thought the players showed that they have built an understanding with eachother.

Let's hope we go on to win this.


Title: Re: Grimsby Town vs Swindon Town matchday thread
Post by: Peter Venkman on Saturday, September 24, 2022, 14:35:48
The main difference today is that we are putting crosses into the box far more than we have recently, and its paying off, Jephcott is a natural finisher and will score for fun with the right service.

I always knew Wakeling could play the wide striker role well, hes almost a carbon copy of Yates, same build, pace, finishing.

Khan proving that we don't need to rely on Reed any more.

Khan really reminds of what made Luongo such a great midfielder. Uses his body so well when on the ball and turning over possession in 50/50 scrambles. If he could get in on the act in front of goal too every now and then, we’ve got a real asset on our hands.

Great win given the situation we were in for the last 20 mins.

No need to analyse the second half too deeply, just keep that first half in mind.

Not sure what was put in Khans half time cuppa, he could have had three yellows and one orange card.

Iandolo isn't fit, is he?  He looked how I imagine I would look when he came on.  Dead on his feet and spinning around all the time to find where the ball or player went.

Gutsy defending by the 10 men in the end and hats off to Brynn and I think Hutton, the latter clearing off the line .  At least I think it was him.

So many great performers, Clayton also deserving on any other day of MotM, Hutton excellent again, Wakeling covered every inch of grass, Jephcott lead the line perfectly all game, FBT solid as ever too. Gladwins best game in years for us, Khan hardly put a foot wrong other than his 2 bookings, MacDonald won almost everything again vs a strong opponent.

It was just a very strong solid performance all round against a decent Grimsby side.

Just watched the highlights.

Not enough has been said about that touch and run between the two defenders by Darcy before the shot that lead to Jephcotts goal.

Appreciate I’m camera side but the Khan second yellow is not even a foul is it? Ball to be won, Grimsby player slides in. Khan tries to put his foot on the ball. Grimsby player gets to the ball first. I can only assume Khans foot came down onto the Grimsby and it’s been deemed a foul due to a (accidental non malicious ‘stamp’)

That clearance off the line by Hutton too.

Really pleasing performance because we had to do everything that game.

We had to play good football and take our chances to get in front. We had to play a man down and dig in, we had to see out the game. We had to deal with using subs we weren’t planning on use due to injures and we had to throw ourselves at it to see the game out….and we did.

A lot of the above is things we were not capable of doing last season under Garner

We’ve definitely looked a lot better with a flat 4 at the back and a relatively settled back line.
We’ve also got (imo) defend first, play football second defenders - which wasn’t the case last season.

Obviously getting minutes in MacDonald (due to time out injured) and Clayton (new to first team football) has helped as well.

FBT is the new Rob Hunt, steady, solid if unspectacular but think they work perfectly fine in a back 4 especially if the opposite full back is a bit more attacking.

Of course - two defeats and we’ll all be gunning for his head and lamenting how awful the team is.

First half probably the best 45 minutes we have played this season.
Could have been more goals, stretched Grimsby all over.

So many decent performances. Jephcott is going to be special, a clever player that will only get better. His fitness already improving. Wakeling just incredible, with 10 his energy was superb.
Gladwin back to his very best.

What a day. On way home met Scott Lindsay and James Day in a service station near Newark. They spotted my lad with his scarf whilst he was filling up with petrol. Spoke for quite some time about everything Swindon. What a lovely bloke, was so complimentary about our support.
Bought both my lad and myself a coffee and continued chatting whilst the 4 of us had a selfie.😂

From their forum:

"It disappoints me to say, like many of the discerning supporters that enjoy watching good football, that I really enjoyed watching Swindon play football and control the game in the first half.

They kept the ball well, moved and passed the ball well, and looked like a team that will be real contenders this season.

I’d have to say also, that I fully appreciated their second half antics with 10 men, when they payed it exactly how I’d want Town to play it in that exact situation too. Professional approach to wasting time, disrupting the ebb and flow of the game, to prevent us gaining any momentum for most of the first half."

What a delight to read about your own team. Sounds like we did everything well today and deserved the win. Hopeful the air of negativity/uncertainty has been lifted and we can all get behind the players and manager moving forward.

Fucking get in there. 2-1 away with 10 men, doesn’t get much better. Best opening 45 this season. Done everything with a purpose, looked good. For once set piece delivery’s were brilliant. Good Jephcott off the mark, was brilliant all game. Throwing himself about, pressing, and doing both with purpose and effect. Grimsby goal was BS, Darcy and shade both got beat further up pitch. Second goal a great move. Gladwin bossed it, been unreal this season, and had to step up when two of the best midfielders in the league ain’t about. Brynn unreal, Clayton Hutton FBT all really solid. Wakeling just doesn’t stop, said it last week but what a fucking find he is. RHM looked class for 5 mins..

Fans brilliant. Good that Grimsby fans were so close,made atmosphere way more lively. 3 wins on the bounce, Donny won 4-1 today, we looking good and playing as a team. Enjoying watching us again, Lindsey fucking loves it. 8 hour round trip worth it.

From an away end it always good to see an irate, arm waving home crowd.
They are well supported though, didn't look to be many empty seats about.

Another positive among many was that Reed & Williams weren't really missed, which wouldn't have been the case last season.

Admittedly from not the best view was initially expecting the Khan second yellow incident to result in a free kick for us!

Missed most of the game yesterday, so watched it back today. Best so far this season for me. Passing had a little more zip, as a result actually looked to create which made it a lot more entertaining to watch as well.

Biggest improvement over the season so far has been the defending though. As a team we were woeful without the ball first few games. It was like nobody knew their assignments in almost any situation. That has changed, and we seem a lot more competent when we do turn over possession. We rode our luck towards the end, but defended well, they were able to take big risks. Not conceding an equaliser will be a real confidence boost for them.

Their goal yesterday was a lucky deflection finding a man in space, one of those things lucky break for them. Jephcott’s goal had a pleasing air of ‘being in the right place’ about it, hopefully the first of many. A fully on form Jephcott probably scores a second from the next corner as well, wanted too much time before hitting it. The winner was good, accurate passing into space giving defenders difficult decisions. Thought we were great value for our lead before the red.

Got a feeling the ref marks may be a little lower for this one. Khans first was not a foul at all. The second I have watched back a few times and honestly can’t tell who makes contact with what first. Could argue he went over the ball (orange card territory). Unlucky, he was having a really solid game, and JL was about to sub him off.

Thought Gladwin was class, Wakeling so important, Hutton good on attack especially. No notable off-days. Enjoyable win all round.

Their forum has been pretty complimentary of our performance. Always nice to see. Seems our squad is starting to gel

I’ve read their matchday and just got back threads, well balanced with generous praise for our display coupled with the usual criticism of their own performance. What was not mentioned was what the score could have been if Khan had not been sent off.

It's gone from Lindsey out chants mid game Sutton to Lindseys name being chanted loud from the get go. I had doubts, didn't think he was up to it. But fucking hell 3 consecutive and convincing enough wins against 3 decent enough sides (much better than Rochdale/Gillingham). Keep proving everyone wrong. His passion was there to see last season, even more so now.

Only thing I found bizarre about yesterday was 1 or 2 seemingly upset that everyone is now backing Lindsey, and how these 'fools wanted him gone'. We Football fans are about as fickle as they come, top of the world one week rock bottom next, that's just how it is, just a big revolving door in the football league, anytime you get a win, fucking enjoy it I say.

It might have already been mentioned in this conversation already, but it was noticeable that the starting 11 was made up of 10 new signings and just Gladwin from last year.  I think that Lindsey has turned us into a coherent team very quickly, and opposing fans would never guess that we are such a new team.  Also, last year's team was sometimes nearly 50% loan players, and we all know what happened in January. Yesterday we had Brynn and FBT.  I don't count Jephcott because we have an option to buy.  Therefore, when we go into February, we will a lot better off than a year ago.  I'd hope that FBT will sign permanently, but signing Brynn would just be too much to hope for.

Highly entertaining xG graph from yesterday's game, Grimsby essentially had an xG of two in injury time.

As per usual I have put together the comments from Grimsby fans, the good, the bad and the ugly comments :) TBF most are pretty complimentary.

Quote
Can't have any complaints at falling behind to a very tidy looking Swindon.

Swindon very good footballing side

Khan is a very good player.

First time I've seen Smith and Waterfall this ragged. Glennon has really struggled against Hutton. Efete has improved a bit. Our midfield has started to find more space since the equaliser but we're still second to most turnovers. Swindon have been pretty impressive, it's been tough.

A good looking Swindon well worth their first half lead.

Swindon are a very well organised side though. Let's see what the second half brings.

Their midfielder Khan is picking up all the lose balls in midfield and stopping Richardson getting on to anything.

Crikey that was a tough watch. We've been miles off but fair play to Swindon, by far the best team we've played so far.

i dont even think weve been that poor, think swindon have been really effective just look a good side, and we need to really up our level to compete with them.

You would assume against 10 men for 30 mins we should win, but nothing is for sure.

Replay for me says ref made correct decision. He's been their best player so let's hope we can break them down now

Tbf, brilliant away performance from Swindon who deserved there little bit of luck in the last few minutes with some fantastic last ditch defending.

Swindon looked better in all areas of the pitch, fitter, stronger, more ruthless in attack. We were always second to balls, easily bullied off it and looked like we wanted to pass the ball into the net from the back.

Swindon deserve it if were honest. Frustrating.

TBF to Swindon they played their socks off.   People might say often the ball didn't fall right for us but Swindon anticipated everything better.  They really didn't need the shithousery.

Even game I'd say but Swindon were that bit slicker with the ball. Going forward they always seemed to have options and follow up runners. With us it's just scrappy,

No, think everyone's blowing smoke up Swindon's arses. They were below us in the table before today having played an extra match. The goals they scored resulted from awful defending on our part

We did the hard work getting back into the game, despite swindon being the better side.

Impressed with swindon, Less impressed with some of our play, home form becoming frustrating.

First 60-70mins very impressed with Swindon, proper footballing side. After the sending off it was shithousery and terrible hoofs to noone from them. We didn't play terrible, we simply got beaten by the better team. On another day one of those many chances at the end goes in and we get a point.

Fairly ugly to watch.

Beaten by a better team but, let’s be honest, we were poor pretty much from 1-11 today. We should have had at least a point however

Overall a fairly even game, Swindon didn't outclass us, nor did we do enough to win the game.

We didn't get into the game until the second half when Harry was moved into the center circle where we were getting hammered.

Swindon are a good side and they deserved the three points. They'll be in the play-offs I think.

it was obvious Swindon had highlighted that left side of defense as a weakness, their diagonal balls were destroying us in the first half.

Swindon were a good side but we still made things easy for them with a rare off day for the defence.

Swindon are a big side and easily out muscled us.

I thought Swindon were good - but not great.

Swindon were faster than us, far more accurate in their passing and had sussed that Glennon was slower than their winger

Swindon were down to 10 men with 30 minutes to play and we failed to take any advantage. In fact, a few times it looked like Town had 10 men!

Swindon were big and strong at the back, cynical but able to play a bit in midfield and with some pace out wide. The first time I've seen us struggle so much defending set pieces as we just kept missing the ball which led to their opener. Both of our full-backs had poor games defensively and it was frankly bizarre how often they almost got in behind us with a simple diagonal ball over the top. We just didn't try to close them down or stop them passing in the first half but it took an almighty misjudgement from Smith for them to score again.

Swindon were the better team all game and their passing in the first half was quick and accurate. Town’s defence today was poor for whatever reason. During the first half Clifton lost his footing 3 times which says he had the wrong studs or the pitch had too much water on it. Richardson was a big disappointment today and rightly subbed but Taylor held the ball well but had little support. Very scrappy 2nd half and as soon as Swindon went down to 10 men you knew it would be a struggle.

Always strange how supporters at the same game see things differently. Swindon were obviously a decent side with good passing and movement but despite that had to rely on us pretty much gifting them both goals and other than that hardly recall Max having to make a save.

Beaten by a better team end of. Stronger quicker more organised more fluid....alot of posts saying we were poor...or was that they were just better ?

Sorry but you are bigging up Swindon far to much they looked vurlnerable at the back and could be got at when we attacked which we didn’t do until late in the game Upper mid table to lower play off at best . No better then Northampton.

Swindon managed the game better than us today in different ways either side of the sending off, they all seemed to want the ball be comfortable in possession and retained it reasonably well too.

Swindon are a good side, that much is obvious. They pop the ball about and move as well as anyone we’ve seen this season.

Swindon are an excellent side and I think they will be right up there come the end of the season. They’re the kind of team that would have blown us away in previous League Two seasons.

2 poor goals to concede and Swindon dominated. Second half we started with purpose and with Khan on the left looked a different propersition. The sending off probably went against us as Swindon time wasted, worked the ref and defended in numbers but in reality we had 2 great chances to equalise and at the end of the game their manager holds up the keepers arm to there fans to salute his performance.

No alarm bells to ring as Swindon promotion favourites

I don’t think we were that bad. I think Swindon being a good team just made us look poor.

Swindon moved the ball nicely, mainly side to side but they kept possession well

Swindon made the league 2 playoffs last year and were consistent throughout the season, we were in the conference. The fact we more than competed shows how far we’ve come.

It can't be anything bad, there was a moment after he looked like he was going to be taken off where he went into a full sprint with the ball.

Said the same thing to us. I mentioned how fired up and enthusiastic he looked and you could see he was desperate to make an impression. Will be out for a few weeks.
Just hasn’t played that many games thus needs to be eased in gently.

We totally controlled the 1st half it was a great performance, 2nd half they came at is early on and for me it was not a sendiong off for Khan, it could as easily have been a sending off for them.

The last 10 mins was awful to watch but some great goalkeeping and defending by Town, worth a watch mate!

Thanks JJ - I enjoyed going through the messages on the Whatsapp group on Sunday and that's consistent with what was posted on here. You know when there is just over 20 pages on the MDT it's been a good day at the STFC office. Hopefully we can build on that now and kick on.
