PART 98: Grimsby Career Mode-FIFA 17



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

UEFA Champions League-Semi Final 1st Leg-Tuesday 2nd May 2023
Grimsby Town 0 drew. FC Barcelona 0
Old Trafford, Manchester
Crowd: 74,679

Ty Stedman-"That was an incredible defensive performance tonight. That was obviously going to be the key for us. We couldn't afford to let in any away goals and we had a few players out that couldn't back up so soon after the defeat at the weekend.

The job is nowhere near done but we'll take some confidence into the second leg and the away goal advantage will help us I think in the long run. This was as important a clean sheet as we've ever recorded. Potentially we're 90 good minutes away from the biggest stage in Europe."

Premier League-Matchday 35-Saturday 6th May 2023
Liverpool 0 def by. GRIMSBY TOWN (B.Allen x2 & J.Ibe) 3
Anfield
Crowd: 52,933

Ty Stedman-"It's a hard game to describe. There's no doubt Liverpool had us on the ropes throughout the majority of the first half but our defenders stood firm and then the perfect counter attack just before half-time. It was literally a sucker punch after they dominated us. That's football.

The second half was a complete turn-around. We controlled the game and ended up winning 3-0. It wasn't easy in the end. We rode our luck and thankfully it worked out. Billy Allen was absolutely superb today, by far his career standout game. What a finish for the second goal and what an important win."

UEFA Champions League-Semi Final 2nd Leg-Wednesday 10th May 2023
FC Barcelona (P.Alcacer) 1 def by. GRIMSBY TOWN (F.Thauvin & M.Rojas) 2
Camp Nou
Crowd: 72,217

Ty Stedman-"This is our greatest victory. Make no doubt about it. To be 1-0 down to Barcelona and come from behind just tells a story about the belief we have this season. Florian's goal gave us a lot of hope but we wanted more, we wanted to seal our fate and we did just that.

Marco Rojas hasn't had his best season by his standard and it was only his second goal of the year. I'm not sure how it ended up going in after two or three rebounds. It was a crazy moment and one that sends us to the pinnacle of European club football. Unbelievable."

Premier League-Matchday 36-Saturday 13th May 2023
GRIMSBY TOWN (L.Rose & E.Turner) 2 def. AFC Bournemouth 0
Blundell Park
Crowd: 9,051 (SOLD OUT)

Ty Stedman-"It's a key win for us today. Our last game at home for the season and we've taken the chance to heap more pressure on United and Arsenal. Bournemouth are bottom of the league and heading for relegation so we were aiming to leave here with the three points.

Obviously we had to rest a few players from the midweek game but our depth is strong and guys like Elliot Turner and Liam Rose proved just that today. We've got Chelsea midweek that will essentially make or break our title hopes but our confidence is sky high."
