Grimsby Town HOME Tuesday 26/10/2021

Postby deadly » Mon Oct 25, 2021 8:30 am

Grimsby fans are understandably upbeat about their team's chances tomorrow, with them all predicting a win for the Mariners. 0-3 or 0-4 are their most common score predictions.
Also they are predicting around 700 away fans will make the long trip down.

I would be happy to see that many away fans at the Vale, but less than happy if The Stones are rolled over so easily on the pitch.
Can we possibly get something from this game? Or are we facing one of the biggest and most humiliating defeats of recent times?
It is time to get the tactics and team formation spot on for the Management team's biggest test yet.

Deadly Fingers Crossed.

Deadly we had many humiliating defeats last season... can they beat the Pools 7 goals against.?

Cooper and Dyer main worry. Long overdue some positive result sending home fans away happy for once.

Tuesday under the lights.

I hope it’s a case that we think on our feet and if Grimsby close down high up the pitch , then keeper kicks. Simply can’t play tippy tally football at the back against league leaders and expect to survive. Put them on the back foot and try and play in their half. Would bite hands off now to get a point, realistically it might be damage limitation.
I am sure we will stick to same tactics, so don’t expect much. Barnet and Dover huge Must WIN games. Aldershot v Weymouth same evening, will be interesting to see that result as has impact on our position.
On positive note should be a decent crowd, so would ask people to turn up 10 minutes earlier than normal so turnstile staff get to see all the game and not miss 10-15 minutes. All are supporters as well and want to watch. UTS

Going to be a long 90+ min adventure tomorrow night, 11 v 11 at the start, get behind the MT & Players from the off. :)

Lots of 'bodies' expected so make sure you get into the ground in good time and join in the singing.. :shock:

Predictable low volume of postings on the Weymouth thread but watch this one go berserk if we get beaten by top of the table Grimsby.

Dyer and Cooper crucial for us so if either or both unavailable then others need to step up. Theoretically a great opportunity may present itself to Buse who perhaps hasn't done himself justice yet to show he's got more about him than just energy. Elito, if playing needs to show he can do the hard graft defensively when required, don't think we've seen that yet.

Eleftheriou arguably unfortunate to be left out Saturday, but Tavares showed how good he was in that role.

As for Lewis, for all the possession and good positions he finds himself in, the end product whether cross or shot is well short of where it needs to be.

Support good Saturday but definitely a few digging players out which we don't really need during the game, and as for those bellowing for the team to go forward in the last part of the game, I can only assume they didn't realise we were down to 10 men.

McAvoy looked excellent, very composed, Grimsby a different level though. If Efete comes back into their team, let's make sure he's marked by a proper defender at set pieces!

Odds stacked very heavily against us but always a chance we could snatch something, I just hope expectations remain realistic.

'realistic' seems to be the buzzword whenever we are failing to meet even sub modest expectations. I thought it perfectly realistic that we could have held on for a win against 10 man Dagenham but seems that was asking for too much. Maybe even sneaked a win at Weymouth (courtesy of an FA Cup shambles bounce back) but again I need to set my sights lower than that.

Onto tomorrow, yes, a hard, hard game and one of which a point would be more than acceptable. However, from time to time, part time teams do actually beat BELT teams at their own level although it seems this outcome is one of which we appear to no longer believe in. Yeh....the odds would suggest we're gonna get beaten up a bit tomorrow so I don't think there will be a massive inquest if we do. However, let's at least have something of a go at home.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.

The ‘realistic’ consensus following the D&R shambles, was that a minimum of nine points was required over the next five NL games - three of which involve(d) the relegation threatened mini- league……..

This requirement was rightly seen as an absolute minimum necessity to ensure that the club was able to start consolidating a position above the proverbial trap door ….

…. and more immediately it is seen as the only outcome which would justify the retention of an inarguably failing MT defined in terms of results and style of football on the pitch….

‘Realistically’ that means/t three wins against Weymouth, Barnet and Dover ….

To achieve - or even exceed- the revised realistic target we now need a minimum of an unbeaten run of two draws and two wins in this specific run of games … is that ‘realistic’? ….. or do we carry on regardless of results for the next two months hoping we can get some relatively small (but still critical) additional income via progress in the FAT in December and January?

The real pressure on the Board will inevitably arise not after the outcome of the Grimsby home game (even if we lose by a large margin) but if we fail to defeat Barnet in over 2 weeks time.

What team would be stupid enough to try that !
