What the Fans Say!

What the Fans Say!

What did the opposition fans think as Mansfield Town ran riot over Grimsby Town in the early kick off in League 2, winning 4-1 at the One Call.

Most replies on the
Fishy Forum were scathing over their boss Russell Slade.

'Gutless and dire. We are seriously poor. Worried' - Hagrid

'4-1 flattered Mansfield but we don't look like getting near the goal, never mind scoring.' - JamesGtFc

Before their first penalty (which was a dive by the way as proven by the high five after he'd won it) it looked to have been heading for a bore draw. At half time it looked to be in the balance and maybe we could have got something. - LH

'I also thought that Mansfield were terrible and their performance would have resulted in a loss had we not been an absolute shambles ourselves.' - Jaws

The visible huge police presence was also mentioned.

'A word for the huge police presence. What a totally unecessary and over the top showing. Why so many? Why were they in the stand and not behind the barriers? How much did that cost? Completely unbelievable numbers' - Headingly_Marnier

Police presence will be justified by the fact that 5 mins into the match one town 'fan' was asked to sit down as the people behind could not see. His immediate reaction was to have a go at the steward and then at the policeman who asked him to sit down. Result ? He was arrested and taken from the ground. The group of 'fans' 20 feet away who objected to this and then had a go at the police. Result ? A number of them got arrested and taken away. Police will call that as the number of police being justifiable. - MrBump53

At the start of the game, Grimsby Town supporters were also singing 'Mansfield's a *** hole, I wanna go home', we are not one to judge, but have they looked at Cleethorpes recently maybe, or even out of their front door, just putting that out there.
