For 6 years we were playing some PT teams from towns and villages that we could not find on a map.  The grounds left a lot to be desired.

Now we have a respected manager, are making progress in the league and are developing our own good youth players.  We are also making money from Cup matches.

Last kseason we played a Prem team (who had won at Man City) and who had internationals playing.  10 men nearly held out for 90 mins for a replay.

This season (in Sep) we are playing a higher-profile Prem team.  Chelsea are also seeded higher in the CL than Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.  They also have a new high-profile manager which creates publicity.

Meanwhile, our rivals are struggling for different reasons.

If you're referring to Lincoln City as one of those rivals, I think to suggest they are struggling would be pushing it a bit!

But yes, we're on the up.  Just to be away from a relegation scrap is a step in the right direction.

I would suggest he’s referring to Scunthorpe

Well yes, but the post does sound like it’s referring to the lot of them, as we do have 3 local rivals.

We’ve had an OK start to the season (better than expected and time will tell how good it’s been later on) and we’ve managed to get lucky in a cup draw. Scunny have dropped and we’ve stayed at the same level for three years. Let’s not get carried away.

I said after watching Tuesdays game that we are still a long way from a promotion team, unless we use the January window to our advantage.

Still early days but a better start than most of us expected. Keeping my feet firmly on the ground. Or trying to.
