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.
