"No disrespect to the likes of Grimsby..."

tuesday 2nd october

Grimsby and Croatia

From the The Scotsman

Scotland manager Craig Brown speaking in "Scotsman" newspaper, in reference to the non-selection of Pompey's Mark Burchill for the Croatia game after his brace against Grimsby the preceding weekend.:

"With all due respect to Grimsby, they're no Croatia..."

Grim for Gordon

From Sporting Life

Keith Houchen, the former Coventry player, after the Sky Blues home defeat by Grimsby.

"Football has always been about winning and getting results and he has been pretty unsuccessful for the past two years.

"For Coventry to be losing at home to the likes of Grimsby isn't the best scenario."

From The Racing Post

Harry Redknapp in his Racing Post column: "I was very sorry to see Gordon Strachan lose his job at Coventry- but not in the least bit surprised. It was crucial that Coventry got off to a flyer yet they have suffered a few ropey results. Losing at home to Grimsby was the last straw and you can hardly blame the board. I mean, Grimsby! I'll lay anyone 100-1 that Grimsby don't finish in the top ten. That's how poor they are."


Bold is Beautful

From BBC

BBC Wales Sport columnist Graham Thomas says that when the chips are down, Wales coach Graham Henry must rediscover his gambling instinct. Nobody ever hoovered up the chips at the casinos of Las Vegas by hedging their bets.

Neither did Bill Gates hit the jackpot by playing it safe and investing his money in the postal service, or Mohammed Al Fayed earn fame, fortune and notoriety by buying Grimsby Town and a corner shop.
