Will Woods Walk The Plank?

Last updated : 26 January 2011 By Neil Hobbs

 Neil Woods the Grimsby Town manager looks like a dead man walking given the Mariners disappointing ninth place. One point from rivals Luton Town and Crawley after Chasetown knock you out of the FA Trophy is not exactly the return your top two expect having put a million into the club in the summer.

Woods might got a temporary reprieve as Chairman John Fenty made an apology after the Chasetown shambles, but any kind of slip at lowly Eastbourne Borough on Saturday, or Southport on Tuesday, must surely see him walk the plank. Woods, an attack minded Mr nice guy, has been outwitted by clubs at the bottom of the Conference two or three times already this season.

No one wants to see someone lose their job in football, but are we alone in thinking Neil Woods is just to nice to be a manager.  Six points from the next two games is a minimum you feel or a new man could well be at the helm for the Cambridge home game on Feb 12.

We will leave you with these chilling words from the Cods OS

THE chairman, on behalf of the board of directors, apologises for what he described as a terrible and very disappointing loss to Chasetown yesterday.

It is imperative that this club can be seen to make amends. He added: "We have two very important games over the next six days in which we must pick up points, and do well to ensure that we are able to have a chance a playoff position."
