Question of the Week
Where does the team most need strengthening?
Reversal of Fortune: Chester Report
By: Tony Butcher
COLD and bleak, the depths of deadwood: Cleethorpes in February. Around 12.5 Devaboys in the Osmond, out there, somewhere. Why there? Snow, snow, white and clean, snug in the Pontoon. Nice.
Grimsby Town 1 Chester City 0
Stanley bamboozled by Crowe, locals content.
Snowing harder, I canna see them captain. Hockless perked up, Hockless shot from 25 yards, straight at Brown. They do have a â€˜keeper!
They fall, a free kick - pah!. Curled in from their left, Hope falling hopefully, failing to fool. A corner, minor flappage in the Town area. Pingle-pongle, the ball shambling its way through knees, bumbling through, scuffled away. Something almost nearly happened, but didnâ€™t.
Four minutes of added time. Why? Foy in the area, dribbling like a persistent Scottie dog on heat, rolling the ball to the Williams.
Didnâ€™t Stace have a shot? Yeah, probably. So what?
Half time: Grimsby Town 0 Chester City 0
Town awful, Town shocking; no passing, no movement, hitting, hoping, succeeding only in failing. The crowd was frozen in awe, is it possible to be worse?
Stu's Half Time Toilet Talk
"An arts centre in Rotherham, thatâ€™s an oxymoron."
