What is the Lincoln model ? I know they got a bit of investment but other than that they gambled on a manager with only non league experience and it paid off , the crowds came cos they were winning most weeks so what was the model exactly


If this Lincoln "model" is a model that involves us winning most weeks - I would definitely go for that model. Sounds like a great model.

Christ going off this thread youd think this squad of players were in the top half of the table

Is Matete really league 1 standard? He might think he is but Fleetwood weren't impressed enough to play him and 15games no goals suggest otherwise.
We're still not even close to winning games (you need to score goals - we could play for 300mins and still fail)
We always get on the strikers back for not scoring but surely the midfield could have chipped in with their fair share

Back two should be signed. If Matt Green was considered value at 100k a year, I dread to think what Hewitt is worth. Going off that,  he could be the first million pound a week player?  
I'd keep Spokes. The two local lads clifton and Wright. I think he might keep Coke.
The rest wouldn't be missed, would they?

Put it this way. If we were in the conference, we wouldn't be happy signing a bunch of players who have just helped a team finish bottom of the league



Great comment.

Do you think the present team will challenge for the title next year in NL?


I think the defence would absolutely. The strike force would struggle in NLN

Well, I don't know the specifics except their Investor put in £300k and next thing, they're out of the National League and top of League One. True, it's fizzling out a bit now, but they still have the potential to be a Championship club very soon.

They made a lot of money from their cup run and invested it correctly. £2m seems to ring a bell.

Not gonna make a list but a mention to giles coke who came in and instantly gave it everything, wouldn't mind him here next season as our captain.

Macca as much as he has been loyal and a great keeper for us it's time for him to move on to a new challenge.

We will be in the national league so a mix of experience and youth is important but the majority have to move on.

Assuming all of the loan players go back (and you have to, really) that doesn't leave a lot

Hewitt
Habergham
Clifton
Spokes
Lenny

50/50
Macca
Hendrie
Gibson
Jackson

The rest I am not fussed if they left - and PH won't play deadwood like Scannell

If any loanees could be brought back
Coke
Matete
Menayese

Coke's not on loan Devs, he's our player until the end of the season.

Not sure on how anyone can be 50/50 on gibson and Jackson

I like What Ira has to say but on the pitch just not good enough

Gibson is worse.  3 year deal.....
