PART 103: Grimsby Career Mode-FIFA 17


Premier League-Matchday 8-Saturday 14th October 2023
GRIMSBY TOWN (M.Dembele) 1 def. Norwich City 0
Blundell Park

Ty Stedman-"It wasn't a great performance today in front of goal. We created a lot of chances but we were unable to bury them. Norwich have started the season well so we wanted to play them out of the game as time ticked by but fortunately for us, we were able to defend our way to a tight win.

It's still very early in the season but to be undefeated in seven games and have 20 points already on the board is a really good way to start our push for the league title. In a 38-game season, you'll have games where you have to do it the hard way and that's exactly what we did today."


UEFA Champions League-Matchday 3-Wednesday 18th October 2023
Grimsby Town 0 def by. NAPOLI (O.Zinchenko-OG) 1
KCOM Stadium, Hull

Ty Stedman-"It's not easy to sit here and discuss how we lost that game. An own-goal with less than five minutes to go is not the ideal way to lose any game let alone a crucial Champions League fixture. We played some good football and deserved a point no doubt but our luck ran out I guess.

I'm definitely not going to be worrying just yet about missing the knockout stage. We do admittingly need to produce results now in France and Italy as well as make sure we knock off Celtic in our next home fixture. It's a tough road but we want to defend our title."


Premier League-Matchday 9-Saturday 21st October 2023
Sunderland 0 def by. GRIMSBY TOWN (B.Traore & Oscar) 2
Stadium of Light

Ty Stedman-"We wanted to come here and bounce back from what was an extremely frustrating loss in the Champions League midweek. We've started the season in good scoring form and again today we really did the job well. One or two more goals at the end wouldn't have been undeserved.

The plan was to come to this tough away venue and play Sunderland out of the game. The second half was similar to a lot of second half displays we've put out this season, just perfect. Our defending was top notch and we kept five points between us and Arsenal in second place so a very good day for us."


Premier League-Matchday 10-Saturday 28th October 2023
GRIMSBY TOWN (B.Traore x2 & J.Bosetti) 3 def. Manchester City 0
Blundell Park

Ty Stedman-"I'd rate today as one of our best all-round wins in the time I've been here. I'm told before today we had four goals against City in the past nine so to brush them aside with a convincing 3-0 result is nothing short of satisfying.

Our frontline is extremely dangerous. Bertrand Traore bagged another two goals today but he was outshined in terms of finishing class by Josh Bosetti. It's not often you see a defensive midfielder get into the box and blast a shot into the top right corner. That's the confidence we have and it's good to have that."
