Grimsby Team Predictions

October 7, 2019

I’m predicting eight changes to the line-up following our embarrassing defeat at Lincoln? Here goes…      


GK: Lee Burge. No one will be surprised with this one. Burge is clearly the cup keeper and McLaughlin could do with some time away from the limelight.


RB: Conor McLaughlin. With O’Nien making a bit of a name for himself further forward, McLaughlin is our only senior right back.


CB: Tom Flanagan. Lynch and Willis have played a lot recently and Flanagan should be determined to work his way into the team again.


CB: Alim Ozturk. Like Flanagan, Ozturk will be chomping at the bit to get back on the pitch.


LB: Denver Hume. Laurens De Bock has played a lot after no pre-season and had a shocker against Lincoln. It’ll be beneficial for him to be dropped for this one, and Hume could do with starting for the first time in a while.


CM: Bali Mumba. Mumba impressed last season, particularly the start, in a limited number of games. He hasn’t had much time to shine this season with our embarrassment of riches in the centre of the pitch.


CM: Grant Leadbitter. If Mumba starts, it’ll make sense to have an experienced head next to him in Leadbitter. Against League Two opposition he should be able to dictate play.


RM: Duncan Watmore. With Watmore rumoured to be back and injury-free tonight, it seems like the perfect low-pressure game to reintroduce the winger/forward.


LM: Chris Maguire. When he’s on form, Maguire can totally control a game. Granted he wasn’t great against Lincoln, but against a supposedly “lower” opposition he should be afforded another opportunity in the side.


CF: Luke O’Nien. O’Nien deserves a rest after his constant energetic performances, but there’s no one in the squad who does the role he does.


ST: Will Grigg. Grigg’s horribly out of form, so a start against Grimsby may allow him to gain some goals and confidence.

At the back end of the 1980s, football fanzines began to sweep the country and in 1989 we were presented with a new vehicle on which to enjoy some of this ride – A Love Supreme. ALS was a place we could all go to celebrate and commiserate being a Sunderland fan. Win, lose or draw, the pages of the fanzine became solace for many of us as we stumbled our way through our day to day lives, punctuated by the ups and downs of more match days than any of us care to remember.
