Care to translate that to team for Saturday?

Break it right down to give him a chance to understand!

Let's hope they don't have a new manager by Saturday.

I see Craig Bellamy is 1/5, I know he was interviewed for the Welsh job but would be a left field appointment

I think thatís true , Grimes would thrive more with McWilliams next to him screening the back 4.
Grimes and crooks are asked to do a lot in this team whist the wide players coast - particularly if your name is Powell who pretends to defend and hardly ever causes problems going forward .

Actual genuine question here, is Grimes much of an upgrade on Matt Taylor, I don't see that he brings too much that Taylor bought to the table? So are we any better off?

Grimes is clearly nowhere near the worst Cobbler ever but he is becoming a serious problem. His contribution beyond set pieces is negligible, yet Iíd bet he is the first name on the team sheet every week. His standard contribution (probably 7/10 times when in possession) is to pass it backwards to Taylor, who then launches it forward. Somebody please tell me what he contributes outside of taking every set piece (too often poorly)?

Good post Patmore!

Those that think he should be playing need to wake up to our predicament, and I include the manager in this group. 7 pages here and barely a mention of relegation. Look at how Wimbledon and their fans celebrated their winner yesterday and you can tell they know where they are and are fighting for every point.

We are now 1 point above relegation. Everybody else has games in hand on us and everybody has a better goal difference. We need to win 5 out of our last 12 games to stay up, we have only won 1 in our last 5. Our Last two outings at home have been horrific showings and on both occasions the opposition managers have out thought JFH. We seem to be relying on our away form to save us at the moment. Statistics for all teams across all divisions will tell you how much of a worrying situation that is.

We have goals in the team now, what we need is a bit of fight/bite/steel/ in front of the back four to give our attacking players the chance to go and play. It is at the point of being glaringly obvious.

Pressing on with Grimes and Crooks in midfield is going to cost us. It did yesterday, and if anyone does manage to spot Grimes at any point during their first goal please let me know.

Absolute tripe .
Grimes has dropped off but other teams close him down more now .
He was responsible for their first goal yesterday but has generally been decent for us .

I think grimes has been bang average 99% of the time. As others have said we are in desperate need of a hard tackling general in tge middle of the park. Their first goal was laughable yesterday in how far the lad was allowed to travel unchallenged and was reminiscent of the first 20 mins against gillingham. Lightweight grimes being in there is part of the problem.

Of course "opinions" are valid, even mine! I suspect that you are the one who needs to loosen up; your judgemental stance indicates that.

Yeah - I know that Einstein, but they still get it wrong. To say Aribiyi played badly is false news! Especially as he was clapped of the pitch.  Can 500 be wrong and Potato 🥔 spot on Roll Eyes

Yet again someone that has a different opinion to you is wrong nevers!

You really are one prized tw*t!

Billy Waters scored for Cambridge to make sure Wilkinson dosent get the grimsby job

I have a good feeling about today, not sure why but will go for a 2-1 cobs. Long is due a goal today.

Just call me mystic mog!!!

Come on boys, let's hang on now!!

I know itís all about opinions, but why donít you just get off his back. You are constantly Ďat it again Ď with JFH.

Maybe just because he deserves some criticism nevers!!
15  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: J F H on: February 16, 2018, 14:18:21 pm
For me it is not playing Foley ahead of JJOT, but JJOT has been so outstanding in behind Long (winning player of the month) that we should keep him there. Also, he hasn't played in the middle of the park for a long time now, still doesn't look 100% fit to me and it showed against the Gills midfield when he was put in there.

Foley has a much higher work rate and is not afraid to get stuck in either, so should be ideally suited. I for one would rather see McWilliams played in the middle though.

What I was trying to say but put far better
16  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: J F H on: February 16, 2018, 14:16:23 pm
I know it's a game of opinions, but I'd be interested to see why you'd play Foley in the middle ahead of O'Toole? O'Toole was in League 2 team of the year in this position, and probably our star player in the same position last season.

Foley has looked far too lightweight for me in the middle. Seems to lose most 50/50s, poor positional play and doesn't offer much in ability. I personally think his work rate and stamina is definitely better appreciated offering balance on the wing.

Really just to keep o toole where he has been playing and is most effective in my opinion. To be honest him playing just behind the front man has been the biggest cog in making us work of the last few weeks. I'd have played Poole holding if it meant leaving j j where he was.
17  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: J F H on: February 15, 2018, 19:53:53 pm
What was wrong when he played as a defensive midfielder - was that a massive mistake by Wilder? We all love McWilliams but none of us know if he would have been ready and able to play Crook's role.
Hindsight is great but I'm going to give the benefit to JFH for his selection.

I'm not saying it right or wrong mate, but with the options avaliable and given how well o toole has been playing I would have played Mcwilliams  (1st option), (Foley 2nd option) in that holding position before sacraficing jj from just behind long. That is just my opinion.
18  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: J F H on: February 15, 2018, 19:16:24 pm
With Crookes injured, putting JJOT in a position he's played virtually all his career with The Cobblers makes perfect sense to me.

When he's been so good and league 1 player of the month playing further up the pitch and scoring goals!!

Ontop of this you have a natural replacement for crooks sitting waiting for game time in Mcwilliams
19  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: J F H on: February 15, 2018, 17:40:17 pm

This is what's worrying he seems oblivious to it being a problem. When crooks was not fit the obvious thing would be to straight swap for Mcwilliams but he dosent recognise this instead in moving o toole changes the whole set up.

Really worrying this for me, almost on a worrying level with page and Edinburgh. We all of the ground can see it, but he can't questions have to start being asked
20  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: J F H on: February 14, 2018, 13:26:21 pm
Jimmy unfortunately seems clueless most of the time and seems unwilling and inflexible to adapt.

The straight forward and correct thing to have done yesterday if van veen and crooks were both injured was just staight swaps for long and Mcwilliams.  Instead Tinkerbank tries to reiver the wheel.
