Question of the Week
Will Paul Hurst stay at Grimsby?
Sheff Wed Report Card
By: Dr Fishy
DR Fishy would like to ask a few questions. Why did we play 4-5-1 in such a crucial match? Why were there three Owl mascots? And why did one of them decide to copy Mighty Mariner's pre-match routine?
Other than that I have no other questions to ask. It was plain and simple. Town weren't good enough against a team that they should have beaten.
Coyne: Most of his drop-kicks swayed out very wide. Made a straight-forward save in the first half. Otherwise he wasn't troubled all that much.
McDermott: The captain led by example. He was tested for pace but blocked everything that came his way and isolated the danger.
Gallimore: Oh dear, what is happening to Gally? Out-paced on at least two occasions and his awareness is deserting him.
Chettle: Steady at the back, had everything under control.
Santos: See Chettle.
Campbell: Burst forward on a couple of occasions. Didn't really threaten, only from set pieces. Became invisible for a while.
Keane: Tried very hard. Likes to cut inside and chase things down. Think Coldicott but with perhaps a shade more skill.
Hughes: Made many fine interceptions in midfield and looked to drive forward at every opportunity.
Bolder: Still looks like a nervous youngster but to his credit he continued to probe away and was unlucky with a long-range effort that was well saved by Pressman.
Groves: Gave away possession too easily at times. At times he looked steady, but then five minutes later he lost the ball again.
Boulding: The effort was there, but the support was nowhere to be seen. So much for the formation taking a 4-3-3 shape when in attack.
Mansaram: Came on and made a nuisance of himself without really getting anywhere. Turned and produced a trademark wayward shot from the edge of the box.
|A*||This is almost impossible to achieve as I will refuse to give anyone this grade - unless they score six goals and get opposing players sent off.|
|A||This is more possible to achieve, although the player must have had a brilliant game i.e. he can't have put a foot wrong all match.|
|A-||The player must have performed superbly, setting up goals, scoring goals, making match-winning tackles etc.|
|B+||The player played to a very high standard indeed having been influential throughout the 90 minutes.|
|B||This can be achieved if the player had a very good game overall but could be forgiven for making one or two minor mistakes.|
|B-||The player put in a performance worthy of special mention for his efforts on the pitch or otherwise having a good game.|
|C+||A mark for players who have had an average game but at the same time played well in patches and may have had an impact on the final score.|
|C||An average performance but not worthy of being dropped for the next game - a competent performance.|
|C-||Start thinking about the player's attitude and commitment on the pitch. Showed little effort and was probably invisible for most of the match.|
|D+||Poor game and realistically shouldn't feature in the next game.|
|D||This player shouldn't be playing in the near future.|
|D-||The player deserves to be fined for his abysmal performance|
|E||The player should be sacked|
|F||And then shot|
