Ex-Magpie Tipped To Take Over At Grimsby Town


Former Newcastle midfielder and captain Kevin Nolan is the odds on favorite to take over as the next Grimsby Town manager. Grimsby Town is where Newcastle left-back Liam Gibson is currently on loan.

Grimsby manager Michael Jolley was relieved of his duties on Friday, and his assistant Anthony Limbrick has been installed as the caretaker. Grimsby have just one point in their last four matches. Limbrick is currently 2nd favorite to take over the Mariners.

Nolan made 90 appearances for Newcastle and scored an impressive 30 goals. Though he was captain at multiple stops in his playing career, he has only held two managerial positions.

He was first appointed as player-manager of Lleyton Orient in January of 2016 after he had left West Ham the previous summer.

However, he was removed from his managerial stint in April with the club just 2 points out of the play-off places. He finished the season as a player but left in the summer.

In January 2017, Nolan took over at Notts County, where they were just a point above the relegation zone. He saved them that season before signing a 2 1/2 year deal the following September. However, after a streak of 6 games without a victory, he was sacked in April 2018.

Currently, Grimbsy Town are in 18th place in League Two but just five points off the bottom two. Nolan could provide an immediate lift to Grimsby as he did in his other two appointments.

He seems to also gravitate towards teams that play in black and white stripes like Newcastle and Notts County do. 🙂

    If they played them both through the middle there would be fireworks on the left.

    Ron Knee,
    I warmed to Southgate after thinking he was a complete plonker, that game against Croatia where Modric overrun us unfortunately showed him up, I know management isn’t as easy as the armchair but surely if every single fan and pundit can see the midfield being bolstered, how could he not,

    Jail needlessly slags off Bruce because he might not have licked Rafa’s arse. You really are messed up about the departed manager.

    You’re correct there was the poverty of those times and a lot more people are living better today. But shamefully we do still have the poor and underprivileged. I must admit I never thought we’d have so many depending on food banks in this time of apparent plenty .

    Think we’d better move along and once again agree to differ.

    Isn’t it about time the constant bitching at Munster stopped, it was mild criticism ffs.

    Do you want him to stand in the middle of St James Park whipping himself with twigs and repeating over and over that he did like Rafa as a manager, which he has said many, many, many times.

    Really, I wasn’t aware of that.

    toon22 I’m really, really sorry, I’ll try not to mention any frog eating species, it’s not just axolot’s, there is the French for example.

    Anyone on here who doubts Rafa’s genius is a short sighted idiot.
    If Rafa was to return (he won’t I know) there would be an immediate sellout of season tickets.
    Sensible people know that SB will achieve nothing at Newcastle; he didn’t succeed when he had a supportive owner so he’s no chance with Fatso in ownership!

    Heard cracker from Jack Dee on the radio today….

    The story went that a beautiful fairy princess came across a frog while walking in the forest. The frog was looking very sad.

    ‘What’s the matter little frog?’ she asked.

    ‘I’m so ugly that none of the frogs like me, I’m sick of being an ugly frog – I want to be a human, handsome and liked by beautiful ladies like you’ he said hopefully.

    ‘So it shall be’ said the fairy princess and she waved her magic wand.

    Whoof! And behold, a finely dressed figure appeared – but still with the head of a frog!

    ‘I am sorry, my spell hasn’t quite worked and I cannot change you back, you’ll have to live as you are’ said the fairy princess. ‘But I can grant you one more wish – tell me and it shall be granted’

    The creature thought for a minute and the ugly frog gave the fairy princess his wish…..

    ‘Can I be leader of the Britex party then?’

    Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-ah-ah..

    🙁
