Quoted from Davec
I sometimes read opposition forums before and after games so see things from their perspective and of course if we signed a player then I may look at his ex clubs forums to see if I can find what they thought about him but i have very rarely actually signed up to post on another clubs forum


Have you never felt the urge to reply when opposition fans slag it off for no good reason though ... if not to add balance to the argument if nothing else?

Well who'd a thought it? Little Lincoln level pegging with the massive Mackems with a few games left, and a Wembley Play-off Final against them looking a distinct possibility?

I'll be honest with you all, I thought we were gone, but an inspired substitution by Appleton v Blackpool resulting in 2 late goals has completely rejuvenated everyone.

8 goals scored since 0 conceded and 10pts with key men returning, has us back in the mixer for the IMPossible dream.

Good win for Hull today  



I wouldn't say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one.

Let us not lose sight of the fact that the vast majority of Lincoln's 'supporters' have little or no knowledge about their club prior to the Cowley era.

It's simply another example of glory hunters and is probably no better than those people who 'support' one of the 'Disgraced 6' who did their utmost to ruin our national game last week.

Or was it excellent marketing of the club to bring fringe fans and outsiders into the club, bringing cash and spurring them on forward with multiple promotions and becoming a bigger club than us?

No, you're right, it's glory supporters.

The point I'm making is that all of us on here have followed our club through thick and thin for many, many years - in my case since 1967. And I make no excuse for finding it pretty despicable when people latch on to a club simply because they're having a bit of success.

You can stick your 'marketing' and associated corporate bullsh!t. We all know what makes a true fan.

I completely understand your view and I am not disagreeing with you in what makes a true fan. I don't have the pedigree of yourself and my first town memory was the season of 98/99 with a longer-lasting memory of Grimsby beating Burnley 6-5.

What you cannot ignore is the exceptional work Lincoln put into their club to make themselves worth people's time and pull together a gathering bigger than us, I don't like it, but that's how it is. We had an opportunity going back into the league in 2016 to hit reset and pull us all together and become a club to be proud of in the community - that's marketing, the thing that you call 'associated 'bullsh!t'. One club chose to mobilise and build, one didn't.

So if we somehow turn good and a couple of thousand extra turn up, you're going to sit there slagging them off for 90 minutes because they don't remember Martin McIntosh?

Think they have a new American investor about to put money into the club so things remain very positive for them at present and I continue to get grief everywhere I go. Fair to say though that the majority of Imps I speak with all want us to stay up and wish we were all in the same league, if only !!
