One thing that does spring to mind is they seem to be throwing the cash about a bit.

Saying that fenty dd say that they would likely go part time if they dont return to the football league this season

Hands up those who give a monkeys about non league football club grimsby town (mines up). I just want to hear how much dosh they give us. As for SWD, I really dont think he will be missed if he moved on. Ok, he did alright for us but I think in the second half of the season he ran round with the energy of a rabbit but thats about it. What we want are goal scorers. There were many games last season that left us wondering who could get them for us and to be honest if it wasn't for Pearson, a defender, scoring some terrific goals we wouldn't have made the play offs.

I hope Newsh does show vast signs of improvement with a full preseason and a run in the side as I'm a little worried about our fire power.  We need a 20 a season man in to fill the gaps left by Pearsons departure.
So many people have come and gone, their faces fade as the years go by.
Yet I still recall as I wander on, as clear as the sun in the summer sky.

Agreed. Of the players in the squad so far, the highest scorer last season only got 5 goals (in all competitions!). Without SWD, Churchy & Shaun it's looking thin.

Now the SWD situation is sorted, we can get suitable strikers in - different plan if you need a No 1 striker or a support striker to play with SWD. 

We need a goalscorer - either someone who hasn't made it at a higher level (like Clare when he first joined) or someone who has scored loads of goals at a lower level and is ready to step up would probably be ideal.  I don't think there are too many proven goalscorers at our level who are available, so we might need to take a chance on someone - don't criticise the managers because we don't sign Walshaw and Marsh!
