I thought bringing O'Connell on was the right thing. They were just pumping the ball forward and it let Harlee come forward and attack their long ball. Very good substitution. As were all the others.

Thought it should have happened 10 mins earlier. Vibe was dead on his feet. Nevertheless the changes were spot on even if, perhaps, the timing wasn't. Well done Marinus!

Glad for him. Was very surprised at two supporters round me absolutely laying in to him (and I mean really and one of them I have barely ever heard say anything). He still looks a bit pained though.

Given the crap number of injuries. I think he's got this team playing very well. With the quality of players to come back in the team over tgd next coupie of months. I'm very relaxed.

I was in E Block in the Braemar and heard "Marinus, Marinus" sung for the first time, sounded like it came from Ealing Road. Didn't last long but good to hear and good to see Marinus clapping the support (and us him) at the end. How big a game is Sheffield Wednesday?!

Yep..ER was fairly negative where I was..all sorts of name calling at various players..

awful-one bloke in particular-every game-dunno why he bothers...

I was on the left side of ER for the second half. I would level a fair amount of money on some of our fans who stood there being disappointed we won judging by their full time reactions.

There is an eclectic mix in ER, some quality vets, fun, young lads and some miserable knobs who should know better

And a few in P204. "Out of his depth"', "the injuries must be down to him", "why give the players 2 days off a week".

Not sure if they cheered our goals!

Surprised by this stuff about ER I have been going in there for a few years now for the second half and where I stand in the centre it's always positive support never hear any of this nonsense.

Give the man a chance and I'm sure he'll show how good he is. 15 injured players would hurt any manager trying to pick an XI. He seems to know when to change the game at the right time and makes the right changes...... Keep it up MD

New Road centre block behind the dug outs were very supportive of Marinus. In fact didn't hear too much negativity aimed at him or the players before or during the game. He got a great standing ovation when he walked towards the dugouts before the game.

There's something about him I just like, he seems very what you see is what you get. Really hope this is a turning point for him and us.

I hope, in a sense, some of these people who spend time slagging him off are at the fans' forum on Thursday.

That's the respect you command, maybe they know better and you should keep going in there. I know your Blue Baseball Cap boys are in there!

Seems one of the good guys to me. Passionate about his football but pretty much exemplifies that there are more important things in life. Just off to wash my mouth out.

Really want to see Marinus do well. It is like Marinus has got the blame for our old manager leaving. Keep it up Marinus, you have had to put up with so much sh*t including so many injuries. There is light at the end of the tunnel. coyr

McCormack played in every game (predominantly at right back) up until his injury at Bolton.

How many games was that? :laugh: Did we improve after Odubajo was forced to play RB?

That injury proved we were lucky with injuries, last season. :thetruth:

Stuck with it until the final whistle, when we would lose. Then rambled on at the post match interview about not taking care of the ball and something about geography.

As has been mentioned above, his subs have been excellent. I wonder how much the stats and the objective data the club obtains has influenced the subs this season? I'm not wanting to take anything away from Marinus at all, however there has been reference to text messages etc so wondered if this played a part?

Genuinely pleased for the fella. At 2.20 for 5 minutes he cut a lonely figure in front of New Road, hands behind back staring at the turf, no smiles, interaction with any staff, whilst the players went through their paces. We commented that he looked like a man who had put his last tenner on the 2 o'clock at Newmarket, detached, a long way from home and the family, fed up and not enjoying his European adventure.

New Road got behind their head coach and warmly welcomed him pre match, his thumbs up and a genuine smile lit up across his stern features, the first all afternoon. By 5pm he saluted us back, the first time he has had the chance to interact with the home support after a win, a connection between Marinus and us.

Yesterday was a big win for us but you felt for Marinus it was a massive win. For Marinus to succeed he has to feel part of the project, for the first time at home yesterday, there were visible signs that promise is now progress. The new boys are settling, Canos, Vibe and Djuricin and if they continue to make their mark, Dijkhuizens salute to the New Road will become a more regular home feature.

I've mentioned a couple of times the great reception he got from New Road before the game.

I was really pleased for the fella as he's just so unassuming and seems a thoroughly decent man.

Well put Mick C. I have despaired at the amount of guff on some of these GPG threads recently hence your erudite observations are most welcome. Rome wasn't built in a day but it was built - let's give MD our full support. Come on you Bees (or in the unlikely event Marinus is reading this thread, Kom op je bijen)

Once again I'm struck by what a nice guy he is. He came across tonight as very genuine. I would suggest that your average supporter and Marinus have much more in common than the previous two managers. Whether that makes him a success remains to be seen but I for one really hope he succeeds with us.

Totally agree. He even gave us a wave.

He's just so honest and down to earth. He's still finding his feet, clearly, but he's starting to impose himself within the club as well as the team.

If we are going to try to get him to wave can we at least drop the 'Ma-ri-nus' chant in favour of a 'Dijk-hui-zen' one?

Have you started watching Brokeback Mountain with a packet of wet wipes as well ? ;).

Think Sonofabee will be despatching a pair of Rainbow laces to you soon.

Totally agree, but I sometimes have to adjust my hearing aid to understand what he is saying!

The story also appears on the Sun newspaper If that's anything to go by......

Apparently some Derby bloke (Steve Round ??? whoever he is) is interested
