    McAtee - from a Grimsby fan

    Posted by GTFC Jay on 1/8/2022, 18:27:53

    Grimsby fan in peace. According to one or two well-connected and consistently reliable types, it sounds as if John McAtee to you lot is a done deal, though apparently the fee is closer to £250k and he will be loaned back to us until the end of this season.

    If that transpires to be the case, I think thatís a pretty good deal for all parties. McAtee, who we signed from Scunny last summer with relatively little fanfare has been an absolute revelation for us, and thereís no doubt we wouldnít have been promoted without him.

    Hard to describe him as a player. Heís a forward rather than an out and out striker, but heís played in a free role for us in a system which was quite rightly built around him. His gait and playing style are quite unique; heís so incredibly hard working and tenacious for a front man, but couples that with great technical ability, vision and clinical finishing. Granted, itís a whole different ball game doing that in the Championship, but the raw materials are all there and his brother James is tipped to be the next Phil Foden at City, so thereís no doubting his pedigree.

    If 16 goals in the National League last season sounds a bit underwhelming, donít be fooled by statistics. He missed a good chunk of the season through injury (at which point our form dropped off a cliff) and thereís so much more to his game than goals.

    Heís been an absolute joy to watch in a Town shirt and hopefully will be for the remainder of this season. It will be a sad day when he leaves the club for good but the idea that weíll have this season to come to terms with that makes the news a little easier to swallow.

    Look after him and best of luck this season; I look at Luton as a template for an unfashionable club mismanaged out of the football league and now prospering under proper ownership.

    All the best.

      Could be worth a punt. His brother is even better. Donít think man City would lend him too ?😃

      Happy to see the mariners back. Used to love the team under Buckley. Amazing football.

            Thanks. My brother lives near Grimsby so we keep an eye on them.
            Good luck.

              Sounds a decent player, and very much in the mould of our recruitment strategy. Look after him for us for the rest of the season, and all the best.

                  Glad to see Grimsby back in the league. I thought they might struggle with that second relegation to the National League. A proper decent club who have suffered with bad owners etc. Ditto Stockport County.

                    Chesterfield also come into the category of shite owners, now on the up ( hopefully)

                    Thanks for the heads up Grimsby fan

                      Totally agreed on Chesterfield. Wrexham too. And Notts County while we're at it!

                          Salford is a really wacky one. They don't play in gritty grimy Salford but on the edge of leafy wealthy Prestwich. The nearest tram stop is actually Crumpsall. I know a dad and lad combo who go, priced out of Old Trafford.

                          Harrogate even odder!

                              I didn't include the chavs, as they haven't really had dodgy owners, just dodgy managers...

                        No, but Grimsby is enchanting this time of year.

                        Hi GTFC...thanks for this and don't worry - we know what 16 goals in the National League means and what it takes to get out of it. We will never take our time in tier 5 lightly. Good luck.

                          Thank you.

                          Looks some player and could be a great deal for both clubs.

                          I wonder if we will loan you someone as part of the deal?

                          Thorpe?
