Not to the same extent as you turncoats. Saw some of your fans laughing cause we took 1200 to Mansfield on social media, I recall you lot bringing less than 500 to BP on a bank holiday.


At the time we only brought 500 to your place we were at a ridiculously low ebb ( still not a good excuse ).
If you say some of our fans were laughing at you taking1200 to Mansfield on Saturday well that is a disgrace. To take 1200 away fans away anywhere at this level is a good turnout. The only controversy I would add to that is as I have said before if you had,had a better start to the season in you would of sold out easily.

He's genuine. Only people from Lincoln use "of" instead of "have".


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

Mr O'Dare isn't that appreciated on vitals, I have no idea if this guy is him or not.

The two biggest reasons things have gone the way they have at Lincoln numbers wise are simply down to having such a long cup run and going almost a year unbeaten at home in any competition (no, not bragging). No doubt some ex fans returned from before and then some new ones came out of the woodwork, but all returned or started mainly to watch a successful winning team. I don't think there would be any difference at GTFC or most other clubs, maybe not the Scunts though. The acid test will be the level of support we settle at when things calm down and naturally return to the more realistic level, as they probably will sooner or later.

I got so peed off with how crap we were, have been an IMP for 35 years and a non stop ST holder for over half of that.  I have seen some unbelievable dross in that time frame. I am just enjoying the moment and period of success whilst it lasts, because it won't be like this forever.  

You seem to be on a downturn of fortune and form at the moment, I/we as Imps fans know exactly what that is like because we have been there, that doesn't mean to say you cannot turn things around. If we can, so can you, as long as it's not in the two games against us this season  .

Good on you Impish for sticking with your team. Enjoy the good times as we know all too well how fleeting they can be.

I don't, and I'm sure most Town fans don't, have an issue with the genuine fans who stuck with your team. It's the ones who have come out of nowhere to start bragging about attendances etc. Where were they when you were sh9it? You forfeit your right to brag about your team if you can't stomach the bad times, you may as well support any old Premier League team if you're only there when things go well.


Grimsby till I die.

If you live in lincoln you should know better than calling us a city full of smug twats. We have gone through a million times why our crowds have quadrupled this season. Thousands of fans who have always been out there have now returned because of the combination circumstances which we have been through. Just like they would at Leeds if they got back to the Premiership League, just like they have at Brighton, Man City and whoever else you want to mention.It's not smugness it's the simple fact that if your club can eventually get the right manager offer you some decent football to watch have some relative success the people will come no matter what league you are in and you have the fan base in the first place.


As usual when responding to one of my posts you failed to read, or at least understand, as you totally ignored the fact I excluded genuine Lincoln fans from my "smug twats" comment. The rest of my comment still applies including to two of the three guys I go boozing with every Thursday..

A fact that I inform them of every week.

For gods sake don't you start. If you know Mr O'dare do you think I say the sort of things he said on our message board. I have absolutely sworn on my kids, grandkids anything you like I am not him. I have watched city since the early 70s so I am well qualified to comment on them. I was there through all the recent bad times and I went home and away EVERY week without fail and was also and still am a season ticket holder. I don't come on here gloating about anything but realise this is a rival website and some things I may say will upset a few people but so be it......they are quite entitled to have a go back at me......and they do.
