Danish MentionsNicko's report from the Fishy in the Danish press
"... Grimsby tabte 3-1 og Lektonen fik fÃ¸lgende vurdering af Nick Osborne fra Grimsby:
Jeg tror ikke han har spillet fodbold i lang tid. Han manglede tempo og virkede smÃ¥forvirret, men han fortjener alligevel en chance mere."

Nielsen on cult status
From the Danish Press
David Nielsen has become cult in Grimsby, as the local media describes it after the Danes dreammatch, where he set up two goals and scored one himself. "They have gone crazy over here" the 24-year-old striker laughs.
"I cannot understand that much of what they are saying over here [a comment to the local accent no doubt] but I can read the papers. Both The Sun ad Daily Mirror write about me, and i the local Grimsby Telegraph, manager Lennie Lawrence says that "we should sit down and work something out"".
"I don't think I ever played as good a game as the one against QPR. [an example of why is was such a spectacular game] I scored on a volley with my left foot.", says the showman, who celebrated his goal with a summersault. "I am very conscious about how I meet the club's supportes, and I've told them that I am not just here to collect my paycheck but to play football and prove to them what I can do."
Through most of the second half against QPR, the Grimsby supporters sang Â´'Sign him on'. After the game David Nielsen was awarded Man of the Match, and taken to the sponsorlounge for champagne and congratulations. "It was a somewhat different expecience than meeting the sponsors of FC Copenhagen. They were somewhat less sober" the striker laughs. Nielsen had a day off from training Friday, and went out to see Grimsby city. Here he was surrounded by football fans everywhere.
"They all wanted to hear whether I would stay beyond my loanperiod of three months. We'll se about that. [Commenting on the team strength] The team is a bit mixed, but in general the matches are at least at level with the Superliga [Danish Premier League], and the pace of game is higher. I've got black marks all over my body today, but I can just stand it" laughs David Nielsen, who's going to play Blackburn Saturday.
