I hope so Ascend. I'm also hoping that the board are currently working tirelessly on ways to ensure that, by the beginning of next season, they've left no stone unturned in trying to bridge the gap between GTFC and LCFC so we can compete on a more even footing next season rather that relying purely on a new manager bounce..


Wont happen.....and pound to penny i can name a couple of reasons the club may use ;

Its the fans fault...LCFC fans backed the Checkatrade, they got to the final, earned 750k in the process,  because of the bullyboy tactics led by the Fishy 5 our fans were too scared to go, we made 50p as a result.

LCFC enjoyed football fortune in the previous season by having the audacity to win some FA Cup games, this brought them untold riches & additional support which LCFC then had the cheek to capture for the following season by underhandedly devaluing the product and discounting ST prices instead of raising them.

Exactly. And what the fornicators won’t point out is that only two teams will get to the final so not much chance of us getting there, or any of the other 60(query exact number) clubs. And whether 10 or 10,000 paying customers went to the games, we stood zero chance with a excrement manager in charge who failed to win a single game in the tournament.

Just for clarity are you referring to Hurst, Bignot or Slade

"sensible GY supporters would admit Lincoln have always had the potential to be the bigger club"

What flavour are those windows, only sensible fans can see that investment has brought you success and now you are reaping the rewards for it, your gates for over 100 years have been below ours, one season you get more than us and you are all blowing a load on how big you are.

All this 'never expected us to go up this season' is bullshit

Imps fans expected to walk the league, they were creaming themselves over their rise up the divisions claiming the only stop would be in the Championship. They invested big and look like coming up short

Invested big in the divisions smallest squad  
We've spent cash, but the biggest investment is on the infrastructure, the 1 million on the training ground, lots of extra staff, New on-line ticketing systems, We are planning for the future, Maybe if your club did...

I think you will find that most of the sensible fans were happy with consolidating, I genuinely believe that we would have got bashed about had/if we go up this season.

Tut tut...just as i was starting to like you ....you spout ill informed opinion regards our  club...now as you are relatively new on here i will cut you some slack but allow me to educate you and show you how, in fact, (and we only deal in FACTS on here) GTFC are actually global leaders in future football planning ;

While football clubs are now frequently moving outside of their traditional home town and boroughs we set the trend in 1899 when we moved to Cleethorpes.
Ivano Bonetti , the first Italian to play in the football league ...at ? ...yes GTFC.
Foreign coaches now abound the leagues... of course it was GTFC who started this trend when looking to appoint Hungarian Elemer Berkessy back in the 1950's.
We were among the first clubs to announce plans for a new modern stadia back in the early 90's...way ahead of most. Not content with that, the club had the foresight to see that that particular stadium would be a white elephant within 20 yrs so cancelled the plans for it anyway (after a long succesful appeal process to get permission to build it) and later announced plans for another just as likely stadia some 20 yrs later.
The marketing department are so far ahead they issued leisure wear items emblazened with the new stadium name on years before even solid plans were on the table.
We havn't spent a penny on Blundell Park in years because we know that one day, in the future, it will just eventually fall down.
We have appointed a manager with no previous football league managerial experience, therefore assuring we now have a manager whose success must be in the future.

You've had some "football fortune" that has enabled you to do that though...
Seriously, even if we did have some of our own we wouldn't

I totally agree - What I meant was that we had a 4 million turnover compared to a fraction of that the year before, and we could have spent it on the team, but I think spending it on the infrastructure, New state of the art training ground, bodes well for the future - Makes us a more attractive proposition for investment and for new players. Cowley states that we are playing catch up with Luton, Coventry and the likes but that we are catching them.

You must have spent some cash, You've a fairly big squad haven't you?.
