Listen to Ian Holloway’s reaction to today’s league opener at Walsall.
Speaking on iFollow Mariners, he said: “There were lots and lots of good bits, some not quite so good.
“It was probably what I expected really. They're not a bad side, they've kept a lot of their squad from last year, and they were there or thereabouts towards promotion.
“I wanted us to move it about a bit better, but the speed of the game and the formation that they had, we didn't work it out quickly enough, we looked like we'd just met each other, to be honest.
”All in all, I was very pleased, but I've got so much work to do. I've got to blend and bond and get them used to each other, but you could see there were little snippets. We've got an awful lot of talent, but we're not quite a team yet."
