Exactly!
Appleton! Sir Winston Churchill, Margaret Thatcher, George Formby
Your boys took a hell of a beating


George Formby?!! What links did he have to the Gimps?

And I think Thatcher was from Grantham.

I've probably completely missed the point of your post above, and if I have I apologise, but it did still make me chuckle!

We've spent the last 15 years watching first Scunthorpe and now Lincoln leave us in the dust and the only joy we get is watching their demise. Not that losing to Liverpool is the demise of Lincoln, merely a reality check in the gulf between the leagues nowadays. They have pushed on in a way that once again leaves us in the dust after they got back into the league.

That FA Cup run was the making of them financially.  A good cup run has been some years gone by for us.

George Formby had a well known song called "When I'm cleaning windows" and as we all know Lincoln fans are toe eyed window lickers. There's at least 6 of them on here.


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

Well said Ginny, keeping clean sheets to good 3rd tier sides in Oxford & Charlton (who The Imps haven't played for 60 years) is no mean feet considering Appleton has only had 2 transfer windows. He has got rid of all but 2 of the players Danny Cowley brought in and had success with .... all with 40% of the budget too I might add.

Probably quite fortunate since the last 2 sets of accounts saw over £3m in losses with selling out your ground every week. I imagine the last season was even bigger losses since it was cut short.

The £1m compensation from Huddersfield definitely helped as their spending was unsustainable, hence the new model under Appleton lowering the age of the squad and thus wages as a result.

Sales for the likes of Toffolo also helped, plus vitally 4.5k of early ST sales for this 2020/21 season. The CEO also mentioned a upper end 6 figure £'s investment from the Board last week, following the announcement of no fans before March, to help tide things over.
