PART 102: Grimsby Career Mode-FIFA 17



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

EFL Cup-Round 3-Tuesday 19th September 2023
Grimsby Town (B.Traore) 1 def by. EVERTON (C.Connolly & A.Mehmedi) 2
Blundell Park

Ty Stedman-"Obviously this isn't held in the same regard as the Premier League but our cup performances in the years I've been here have always been inconsistent. Tonight we played some good football but just had a lot of luck go against us. Everton got the better of the 50/50 bounces and all that sort of stuff.

I thought we had a legitimate penalty shout at one stage which if given could have helped us a lot but it just wasn't to be. It's not good to lose a game but the positive of this is we will have less midweek games than we did last season. That's a plus. Just not our night."

Premier League-Matchday 6-Saturday 23rd September 2023
GRIMSBY TOWN (B.Traore x2, M.Dembele & L.Hernandez) 4 def. Newcastle United (C.Adams & I.Kahveci) 2
Blundell Park

Ty Stedman-"Well we've continued our brilliant start to the Premier League season but again I'm left with mixed thoughts. It was a solid opening where we took a 2-0 lead fairly early on but conceding two sloppy goals in stoppage time was not good enough. It changed our mentality for half-time. We dominated but it was 2-2.

The second half was near perfect. We weren't going to be happy with two more points dropped at home. Moussa gave us a lead and then Lucas Hernandez scored a brilliant goal for a centre back, sliding in for it and tapping the ball in when a lot of bodies were in there. All in all a very decent 4-2 victory."

UEFA Champions League-Matchday 2-Tuesday 26th September 2023
Celtic (S.Janko) 1 def by. GRIMSBY TOWN (O.Zinchenko, B.Traore-PEN & D.Sturridge) 3
Celtic Park

Ty Stedman-"Last time we came here Celtic were down to nine men after 25 minutes and playing some awful football for a team of that quality. Tonight we saw what Celtic are capable of. They scored a brilliant goal through their right back Janko and they forced us to think about how we were going to come back.

The second half was as close to perfect as we could get. Just like the Newcastle game on the weekend we rallied well and the new additions like Zinchenko and Bertrand Traore are just on fire. Zinchenko got three assists against Newcastle and then scored tonight. It's nice to have options across the park."

Premier League-Matchday 7-Saturday 30th September 2023
Swansea City 0 drew. Grimsby Town 0
Liberty Stadium

Ty Stedman-"Based on our first six or seven weeks this season, today's game was a fair way off the pace. Neither team really went for it and it lacked the intensity that should no doubt be an integral part of a Premier League fixture. There's not much else I can say about the game, it was a boring stalemate."
