I think that makes it around seventeen new investors in the past two years. Bet it's a nightmare down there having to discuss and agree on so many new ideas and plans for the future and also having to agree on what to spend the cash on..

Thank god we haven't got that sort of nonsense up here at BP..

Ah but, no one wants to invest in an unfashionable club like Lincoln Grimsby.

If Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Saddam Hussein, Darth Vader, Nigel Farage, Cinderella’s step mum, an assortment of upturned plugs on a darkened landing floor when you’re awake at 3 in the morning needing the bog and Mrs Brown joined to form a consortium to buy our board out I’d bite their hands off.

Putting Darth Vader in charge of PR would be a massive improvement imo....

Money builds momentum momentum builds money.

Clearly Clive Nates has his own cash but more importantly he has something the Gang of Four don’t have - ambition. In my view if you choose to sit at the top table (and it was their choice) you can be forgiven for not having one but get all you deserve for not having the other.

The “custodians” of GTFC need to look up the word regression...... now I better “shut up”.

I hope this gets brought up at the next fans forum, our director's best efforts to bring in investment appears to be looking through their LinkedIn contact list.

It all sounds too good to be true at the moment at Lincoln, I wonder if these investors will stick around when the Cowley's move on and things aren't going so well.

We struggled to bring in investment until Clive came in before the success happened.

Everything we do financially is so we aren't dependent on the Cowley's.
If and when they leave we will be picking managers from a better pot.

It is surprising though that 40 miles away you can't get investment and we can, do you all genuinely think it just down to Fenty..

Didn't he say that Grimsby were a bigger club than Lincoln, I'd like to know what he thinks to that now? Our crowds have been consistent for 3 years now. Despite the banter if Grimsby were  successful at the moment our games would be the best derby in the lower leagues.

It’s a easy sell trying to get investment when top of the league BUT can the Cowleys get you to the championship ? For me the answer is no , not because of failure more because I think they will get offered big money down south and go
