This is supposedly a professional football club ,they should be prepared from day one of the season,the attitude of winners is to be competitive for 90+minutes of every matches.Those who are saying there is plenty of time left are legitimising the shocking state of unreadiness that permeates this club and all must bear responsibility for.That in my opinion why we are perpetually also runs and this attitude is preventing focusing what is really wrong with this club.

I read on another platform Holloway was sat in a boozer on the sauce mid day last Tuesday in Bridlington which if true i found pretty strange unless of course he was trying maybe to track down Curtis woodhouse  to prevent us from being bullied by Salford

I don’t have an issue with Holloway or players having a day off etc. but whether it’s true or not, at this moment you’d be hard pushed to see how this changes.

We look well off the pace and there could be many a reason for that. Of course we have w group of fans who often called sharp objects or miserable and told to support someone else if they don’t go all happy clappy  and realise Fenty is the saviour of GTFC and Holloway will lead us to the promised land but we probably have a majority now that realise that neither are true, although we’re all begging the latter is a success.

Is the fact we came back later than others an issue? Have some of our players done little work during lockdown? Have we brought players in to make up numbers been a bigger gamble and now we’re entirely underprepared? Are our training methods not very good? Are we lacking ideas? Is the club in a worse state than we’re being told? Endless questions.

Something has to change, people justifying the fact we’re only two league games in as some reason not to worry but we’ve got a difficult start and within a month we could still have zero points and zero goals. That attitude is symptomatic of the club. It’s ok. We exist and plod, that’s enough. We don’t need anything else. We don’t need fresh ideas and our way is the way to operate a club.

It’s not. Sadly the folk in that position refuse to acknowledge that. Nobody is saying we should be a championship club, nobody is saying we should spend mad cash on wages but teams have been progressive and forward thinking working within the same constraints as GTFC.

We’ve a couple of players who’ve shown some signs of being a footballer, the left back looks decent, Edwards needs to work on his final ball but could be decent and scannell looked ok when I saw him. We’ve also got some that are really disappointing so far and I hope they improve quickly; Williams doesn’t look an upgrade at the minute, Taylor, whilst young doesn’t look great and I’m not sure about the lad at the back.

We’ve got a full week again before a tough away game next week, let’s hope and pray we figure something out else it’s definitely gonna be a long season...

Our budget has been cut by 40% so not sure where you get the three million idea.

If Tilley’s shot at the end of the Walsall game had been 6 inches to the right it would have ended 1 - 1 and a good away point.

Yesterday a shocking refereeing decision for the 2nd pen killed us after a bright start to the 2nd half. They cleared at least 1 off the line, there keeper made a really good saves in the 1st half and we where in on goal at least once as well so it’s not all doom and gloom.

It will need to change soon though !

Has everyone had a nice sleep and decided life isn’t that bad after all?



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

I neither know nor care what Lincoln's budget is, but what you say sounds about right, given the new salary cap of 2.5 million in League 1. There will be a certain amount of leeway to give teams time to adjust their budgets accordingly, given that contracts have to be honoured from pre salary cap, but it seems unlikely that your budget is 3 million more than ours.
