Nothing To Lose!

By: Bill Osborne
Date: 08/12/2003

PHIL Jevons wants to keep his place in the team after Saturday's game, but Paul Groves, although saying it gives him something to think about, looks like picking Iffy if Boulding returns.

Jevons said, "It's nice to be back and getting a goal, but it would have been better to be through to the third round. It wasn't to be."

"We've had some good chances today but it just hasn't been our day. On another day we could have won this easily by two or three goals."

"I don't want to go on about things that have happened in the past. I want to concentrate on staying in the team and at the moment I'm just subdued about going out of the Cup."

"I think me and Mick Boulding can play together. Why not? But it's up to the manager and I respect his decision."

But Groves said to the Grimsby Telegraph; "I think in terms of the chances, Jevons had one or two. He got a goal from a free-kick and we're going to have to have a look at that and maybe one or two people will be looking over their shoulders"

"But as soon as we lost the physical presence up front we lost the impetus again until Craney went up there. Then we had a bit of it again at the death."END

Billo: I am not sure what he means by physical presence if he is talking about Iffy.

Tony Butcher, in his report, said; "Iffy was more effective when he stood still". An opinion seconded by many who were there.

The Grimsby Telegraph also says; "With Mick Boulding set to return, does he sacrifice the much-needed physical presence of the otherwise disappointing Onuora, or hand the sharper and more creative Jevons the chance to partner his top scorer and risk changing the shape in the process?"

"With a cloud of under-achievement slowly settling over the club, what is there to lose?"
