Full time. Just on audio you have to say that the first half was very poor and disjointed. Second half so much better. Oxford will be around the top 6 again I think. We will consolidate and be higher mid table methinks.
There is a need though to play players in positions they are comfortable in and not try and enforce the usual tactic onto players.
One of those games to forget about
Wycombe and Oxford away on the bounce would be a tough set of games at any part of the season
Hopefully some irons in the fire this week to add some attacking wingers
Not playing next Saturday is a blessing in disguise
Were sat in between Charlton and Ipswich tonight in the table so not just us
FT. Much, much better second half. MA sorted the structure out (which he should have played from the start) and they played so much better, with increased belief as the half went on. In the end they looked like they were enjoying it and playing like they should. Bishop is a superb player. Adelakun looked a decent CF when he got put inside - certainly better than playing wide. Bridcutt played his normal role second half and looked a lot happier and more effective. Sorensen also had a decent second half. Fiorini played really well coming on - looked composed and played some lovely short passes. All the damage was done in the first half until MA sorted out the structure. Bishop easily MoM. Just get through Tuesday and hopefully get a few players back after the international break. With any luck we may get at least one player in before the transfer window closes as well 🤞. Hopefully have more to cheer about in September. Up the Imps 👏👏
Always disappointing to lose, but none of us can say that was surprising. Very limited players available and I think Appleton would agree his tactics were off the mark to begin with.
Sounded like we were much improved in the second half after the slight reshuffle but Oxford deservedly take the points. Good to see no one blaming Josh today!
The real (and obvious) concern is the current state of the squad. Not only are we not full strength, but the those players will be so far away from full match fitness and gelling together. Never known a Lincoln team to be this decimated by injuries in August.
Worrying times with these injuries. How long before we get anything like a settled side.More questions on relation to Tayo. Injured or moving on? So it’s Bradford on Tues. Will we be able to create anything like the performance we put in last season. I hope so but a win will bring in much needed funds. UTI
