    They cant cut in the big boys club.

    On his side’s performance at Valley Parade, Hurst said: “We changed shape, they didn’t know what to do with it. They tried pretending they were going to play three at the back to start with, but they didn’t. I don’t know if they think you were born yesterday with putting things out in the press and going with a back three.

    “They were struggling to cope with our system, tried changing it, they really struggled, they couldn’t get the message onto the pitch.

    “Eventually, they got the goal, which sort of papered over a lot of cracks.

    Cant disagree.

    Is your expectation of T&S's future based on anything other than the manager of a team we beat today and who might well be attempting to cover his own ar$e with his club on the verge of being relegated to the National League?

    Today's performance was a poor one. But how have you factored in their track record of 45 points from 23 games, which is impressive by anybody's standard, into your expectation?

    Do you think Hurst is bitter that he didn’t get the City job?
    He’s taking Grimsby back to non league. Great job he’s done.

    A touch of spin going on here me thinks. They mis-managed themselves so badly that they self destructed at HT and yet we're led to believe it was a tactical masterclass.

    Why are people getting so bothered by Hurst's comments about this?

    In his post match interview Trueman himself said that they were surprised by Grimsby's system so we had to try and change things on the go and by common consent we were dreadful, so it's hardly outlandish for Hurst to say so!

    Hurst is rapidly taking GT into the NL and you extol him as footballing guru. :joy:

    Regardless of comments we are dull to watch tbh, but the record can’t be argued with. If it can sustained long term top end of this league and above is the big question mark.

    I can 100% guarantee T&S will still be in “the big boys club” long after Grimsby have relieved Hurst of his managerial duties.
    Fair play, he’s done the management by numbers bit, made them hard to breakdown, toughened them up........blah blah......
    Not done brilliantly on the team bonding front it has to be said!!!!
    We had a bad day at the office and still came away with the win, bye bye Hurst, sorry you didn’t get the job you wanted, maybe you’ve found your level at Grimsby.
    As for T&S........onwards and upwards!!

    Are you actually a City fan - quoting Hurst with glee is actually quite embarrassing if you are

    We were poor yet won. The oppo managers centre forward is nutting one of their own players and getting sent off. Jose would be proud of such a post match comment. Deflecting the narrative away from your own failings to highlight something else.
    Big boy league excuses. Well played Hurst. You’re going down.

    Poor performance but we won and the opposition managers says we are papering over cracks yet his team is going down to Non League.

    Funny enough I think we should be looking at another manager in the summer if these two don't take us up this season.

    They'll be gone by the new year if we are not fighting for an automatic spot. I don't know if they have it in them to take us up.

    It's now or never.

    What specifically do you not like about T&S? Obvs ignoring their points auto promotion per game ratio so far.

    The official Twitter account has posted incorrect formations for the last few matches. It was common knowledge surely?
