When Grimes plays well, Cobblers play well. When he plays badly like yesterday we generally lose. Like him or loathe him he tends to be the focal point in the team, always wanting the ball and trying to create with it.

I agree that Grimes is important but I've seen him play well several times this season and us get comfortably beaten. It's JJOT who makes the biggest difference. When he plays well, we get results - and Grimes and Crooks look better.

It always helps the two in the middle when Sam Hoskins is buzzing around making a nuisance of himself amongst the opposition.
A lot of people don't realise the positive effect that he has on our team...

Crooks, said since day 1 the guy is useless and so overrated. Complete waste of money.

The trouble with Crooks  is he is very inconsistent add to that the fact that he looks totally disinterested most of t he time doesn't help his cause, he had a good game yesterday though.

Both look going forward but neither have the work-rate or bite to work as a pairing.

Disagree - Grimes was excellent against Wimbledon and got really stuck in.

Not to mention Crooks - inexplicable comment by Corrazin after Saturday?

Id guess pretty much everyone has got it wrong this season with regards to players, no way did I want to see Powell and Hoskins play yesterday but did want to see Long dropped. Crooks and Grimes are extremely good players but both look crap at times, I wanted to see Crooks dropped for Foley yesterday. If you say you've made no wrong calls on our players this season you are a liar

Im loving seeing the old guard standing their ground fighting for a place in the starting line up.
A few weeks ago many of yesterday's heros, fans wanted chopping up and made into dog food.

I always thought retrospective comments on a player after an A1 performance(by that player) and still maintain the same theme regardless is unusual.

We really missed Crooks last night. I think Foley does a 'Milner' role playing on the wing, but just doesn't seem physical enough in the middle.

Hopefully we can see the return of Crooks Grimes and O'Toole for Scunny away.

Crooks looks extremely lazy but I think that is his style, like Hoskins he takes a lot of flak, but we don't look anywhere near as solid without him.
I think Grimes is a good player but at the minute he is only having the odd good game, just wish he had more as he would be decent. I actually think it may be time to give him a rest and bring in Mcwilliams alongside Crooks with JJOT in front. couple of good ball winners in there like jjot and smc and then the bit of class that has crooks can bring when on form.

Im a fan of Grimes but it is true he has gone off the boil .
I would love to see McWilliams given a run because he has something we dont have in the side - tenacity .
The thing is Grimes has never been dropped or subbed and so it wont happen

Crooks was a lot better than Grimes today .
If grimes gets closed down he gets caught in possession a little bit .
Teams have learnt how to nullify him
He may need a rest

He'll probably get it soon anyway. Only one booking away from a 2 match suspension.

Huh?
A rest about what ?
I have been a big supporter of Grimes and critical of Crooks .
Im just saying he may need a breather . I think Grimes is a good player
