The 2001-2002 Season Preview

By: Tony Butcher
Date: 10/07/2001

NEXT SEASON? Possibly not as calm as the last one. Another boardroom battle ahead. I think it's the new old board fighting the old new board. There have been so many in the last 18 months it's easy to lose track. Does it matter who they are?

One set of small Town businessmen with no money want to take over from another set of small Town businessmen with about the same amount of money.

The club have no cash to spend, have released several decent first division players through cost cutting and have "plans" for a new ground, which is now smaller than it was. Typical of the club - something that doesn't exist yet has shrunk.

Unless Lennie Lawrence comes up with at least three fluffy bunnies from an exceeding large top hat we'll somehow manage to struggle in an even poorer first division - the division that keeps on getting worse. As this is being written we only have a couple of centre backs, one of which Lawrence has publicly stated "if anyone wants him they can have him for free".

It fills me with inertia.

But Lawrence is never one to sit still, something always seems to happen. So it isn't dull and predictable. Under Alan Buckley we always knew what was going to happen. It was a little dull, but comforting.

Life is now a little more disturbing for the experienced Grimsby watcher. I look forward to seeing the Captain of the Mongolian national team confidently striding out at Blundell Park to announce it's always been his dream since he was a little boy to pull on the famous black and white jersey (of, sotte voce, Juve).
