    The EFL Trophy Draw Thread

    Three games with Hull in the next few weeks now. It is like waiting for buses. Years without a match and now this. Hull seem a funny team. They lose to teams like Fleetwood, Blackpool and Shrewsbury, and then beat Portsmouth, after losing to them at home. Hope history repeats on Tuesday, as...

    Match Thread: Lincoln City v Northampton Town

    Splendid result. Promotions are won through late goals that turn draws into wins. Two big games to come this week. Portsmouth is a freebie now they lost today and we won. We are due a result against Doncaster after the robbery at the Keepmoat last season and the tight game earlier this. UTI

    Match Thread: Lincoln City v Gillingham

    It is disappointing that the game is off, but we would have played several more home games than away after the next couple of weeks, so at least this balances home and away games up a bit better later in the season. Disruption seems to be the order of the day at the moment, so I suppose...

    Today's League One Match Thread (16/01/2021)

    Nothing to be too concerned about today. Hull and Accy have dropped points. We have had a day off too, so hopefully two good results this week will pull us away again. Not a bad day when we havent played but are still top. Exciting times. UTI

    Today's League One Match Thread (09/01/2021)

    Shrewsbury away, Gillingham home, Northampton home are the next 3 league games. Hopefully Shrewsbury won't get the same chance to sit back next week. A great chance to get some good points on the board. It would certainly help with some tough games to end the month, and enter February with. You...

    Match Thread: Lincoln City v Peterborough United

    Lincoln will be disappointed not to get three points, but when you think about the coronavirus in the club, missing players, early Peterborough goal and missed penalty, then it is still a good point. Peterborough are the same gap behind and we move on. Great season so far. Keep going! UTI

    10 Points behind Lincoln

    The league one table looks great tonight. Whilst far bigger and better teams than our pub outfit! are missing games for coronavirus or frozen pitches, we are quietly getting on with picking up great results. I would much rather have points on the board. Peterborough will no doubt come to Lincoln...

    10 Points behind Lincoln

    Fantastic result for Lincoln today. Since Sunderland beat our pub team, Sunderland have dropped two points at home to Wimbledon and two points at Northampton. I forgot their draw against Burton too. Keep going City - nothing wrong with going under the radar. Who knows what 2021 will bring. UTI...

    Our Fishy Friends

    Could it be that John Fenty is a secret Lincoln City supporter? What a complete shambles of a club they are. Grimsby hook a proven manager in Ian Holloway, sign a Pollock, and then Holloway throws them back into the water again. Grimsby Town could become an endangered species, if they...

    What will Appleton achieve now?

    Target 1 - Still have a football club in summer 2021. Target 2 - League One survival. Target 3 - Some young players look like being sold to teams in the leagues above. There has never been a season, in my lifetime, with so many unknowns. In 2020/21, Coronavirus, job losses / economic slump...

    Cowleys sacked

    Whatever happens, the cowleys can sit back today and count a sizeable redundancy package. They are financially secure now so well done to them. Wouldnt we all like that!! Of course they will get another job in time. In all probability, it will be with a bigger club than lincoln and one which is...

    Cowleys sacked

    If appleton signs some decent players and lincoln make a decent start to the season, and I am saying maybe 16th spot in the league as being respectable, then there is no issue. But what would happen if lincoln are in the bottom four and the cowleys are still without a job? Nathan jones has done...

    Cowleys sacked

    As much as I like the cowleys, and respect what they did, I dont think lincoln can get rid of appleton to allow them to return. However, if lincoln had a bad start to the new season, and the cowleys were still unemployed, then I wouldn't hesitate to get them back.

    Ellis Chapman Rejects Deal

    The huge success that the Cowleys had clearly came at a cost. However, plenty of managers around the country have spent heavily trying to win promotion and have failed spectacularly. Fair play to the Cowleys for what they achieved whilst they were here. History will look back favourably on...

    Ellis Chapman Rejects Deal

    I want to wish Ellis every success in the future. To me, he seems to have a lot of talent and I hope that he proves that by having a great footballing career in the future. It is also a shame to lose a local player, as that can be so inspiring to the local youngsters who have a local role model...

    Match Thread: Accrington Stanley v Lincoln City

    I have some sympathy for michael appleton at the moment. Many of us will have worked in scenarios where we have been told by work bosses that your department is having a big funding cut but we want it to remain as successful. You put in long hours, you try to keep staff with you, you have to...
