PART 101: Grimsby Career Mode-FIFA 17



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Premier League-Matchday 3-Sunday 27th August 2023
Chelsea (D.Solanke) 1 def by. GRIMSBY TOWN (V.Fischer & Oscar) 2
Stamford Bridge

Ty Stedman-"I'm not going to lie, I'm not sure how we're leaving here today with a win. Chelsea got the best of us early on and scored a decent goal but again this side showed a lot of character. Just like the Champions League Final against Chelsea last year, we found a way back.

Viktor Fischer was superb on debut for the club down the left flank. Selling Jordan Ibe wasn't in our plans but RB Leipzig's offer was generous and Jordan was happy for a seachange. As for our winning goal, it was just luck really. Chelsea scrappy at the back and Oscar almost ran it into the net against his old side. Madness at the end but three valuable points."

Premier League-Matchday 4-Saturday 9th September 2023
Grimsby Town (B.Traore-PEN & Mexer-OG) 2 drew. Liverpool (J.Matip & J.Gomez) 2
Blundell Park


Ty Stedman-"Disappointment. That's all that can be used to describe this result today. Liverpool went down to ten obviously with the penalty and right on half-time we got a second with the unfortunate own goal. From there, at home, 2-0 up against ten men, it should be academic. We blew it.

Liverpool came here a few years back and again we had a 2-0 lead and that night we went down 3-2. Today is equally as frustrating if not more. Both their goals came off of corners and it's showing a weakness we have with defending set plays at the moment. If we can fix that we'll be fine but this in my eyes is two points dropped that we shouldn't have dropped."

UEFA Champions League-Matchday 1-Tuesday 12th September 2023
Grimsby Town 0 def by. OLYMPIQUE LYON (M.Cornet) 1
KCOM Stadium, Hull



Ty Stedman-"We weren't expecting an easy game tonight but as the holders of the Champions League, we wanted to send a message in our first group game that we're here once again to compete and win games. It was a fairly even encounter throughout and I thought a draw was a deserved result but it wasn't to be.

Losing games will happen. We were never going to be invincible or anything like that but to lose to an 89th minute goal, especially as a result of tired defending just shows we need to work towards keeping that edge for 90 minutes. We dropped two goals against Liverpool and now we've lost tonight. It's got to turn around and we'll do just that."

Premier League-Matchday 5-Saturday 9th September 2023
Watford (H.Calhanoglu & Ademison) 2 def by. GRIMSBY TOWN (V.Fischer, M.Dembele & O.Zinchenko) 3
Vicarage Road



Ty Stedman-"Quality-wise I couldn't have asked for more. We've played some brilliant football in a few of our matches now this season and we're highly confident in our goalscoring form. Defensively we were better. They scored a decent goal in the first half and then a simple error at the back cost us in the 92nd minute or so. 

The late goal did annoy me a little bit but really it's the football that matters and we outplayed Watford today. Viktor Fischer is a huge addition to the squad and has found form quickly for us. We're delighted with our start and more so the way we're going about our business. It was a good win today."
