Question of the Week
How long before new manager arrives?
24/02 Luton Part 2
By: Tony Butcher
AH, there we are, somethingâ€™s happening here. As usual Town were defending dreadfully. Just what are they doing? Where are they? Who area they? Why are they? Is that fair?
Grimsby Town 3 Luton Town 2
Let me delve into the very back of the echoing cave that contains memories of sweet, sweet Town moments. Ah, yes, I remember, a hazelnut in every bite! No, thatâ€™s something else. Coldicott hit a shot way over the bar from the left edge of the penalty area. Hardly worth mentioning, was it? Later, he surged to the left bye-line, racing on to a flick and trick by Rankin, and slammed a low shot towards the near post, which Hyldgaard plopped onto without much fuss. Anything else? Jevons blasted a free kick way, way over the bar from about 25 yards. Jevons? What? Oh yes, he replaced the limping Anderson after 22 minutes in a straight swap which pleased the Jevonista fan club. And finally Cyril, towards the end of the half, a Town player crossed from the right, Jevons, at the far post, headed firmly down in to the 6 yards box and a defender wellied clear. Mansaram was motionless, watching events from a yard or two away.
Half time: Grimsby Town 0 Luton Town 1
Thatâ€™s the first half, filleted for bones, wiped down with disinfectant to save you from disease. Awful. Lacking any creativity going forward, lacking gumption in defence, Daws and Coldicott were forced to run around like madmen to try and plug the gaps. Campbell was again invisible, hiding in the middle of the muddle, leaving Ford to stew in his own juices. Crane seems to be getting worse, regressing to the point where he physically shrinks during a game. And it must be reported, with great sadness, that Darren Mansaram failed in his trial for the Tap and Spile Sunday Second XI. He just got in the way and Town would have been better off with 10 men.
But at least Armstrong looked any good, passing to people in the same coloured shirts. What has it come to - adequacy lauded as excellence. Is this the nadir? Or just the next nadir?
The team was booed off by those few who scoured their intestines and found the last dregs of interest. Losing to a limited Luton, Town lying in the wreckage, the ambulance approaching. Is it too late?
Stu's Half Time Toilet Talk
"Why is it that only goalkeepers are rent boys and not right backs?"
The report continues in the Second Half.
