Referee, Marc Edwards, was the ref for Pool 1 MK Dons 0 in October

negative comments limited to just a few posts during the game, from over fussy to worst referee ever

Match Day thread is comedy gold, especially the first half. To be fair, we didn’t have the best of games

This would be six away wins on the bounce if we can do it. Anyone know if we’ve ever done this before and if so when?
The last time before this that we won five consecutively was 1957 I think.

Beat them 1-0 on Grand National Day 1991 ( Bamber and Seagram) and it will be the same tomorrow ( Simms and Cloth Cap)

It's all set up for us to massacre Lincoln.


Which is why it'll probably be a 1-0 defeat! Increasingly desperate attacking but no composure. It's a funny old game.

Football is weird. End of season games are weird. Our lads are now expected to win, and reach the play offs. Lincoln are being written off. Danger signs! I'm worried. Count your chickens when you can see them and eat them.

*voyeur,
I fear you might be correct, is we concede the first goal. This will be as difficult a game as any we have played this season. Forget all about the effect of Covid on them. They have had two full weeks off, and will be raring to go, and I reckon that they will fly out of the traps at us from the kick off. Today will be a real test of our credentials for a play off place.

Bloody hell, the nerves this morning..

COME. ON. YOU. MIGHTY. TANGERINE. WIZARDS!
I remember waking up on match days in the late 70s...Decisions i had to make....Where my highly polished Doc Martins highly polished enough and the yellow laces gleaming....which straight leg jeans to wear....Had my Mum cleaned my "arrington" jacket and where are my braces and a quick rendition of " we had joy we had fun we had @ on the run" .... those were the days.

There aren't any easy games. Gillingham was maybe the easiest, and it was supposed to be the hardest. Wimbledon was meant to be easy. And things can change so quickly. Red cards, penalties, missed chances, and the confidence can suddenly evaporate, and panic can set it. At this stage of a season. We are brimming with confidence and hopefully it will continue like 2007 but you just have to focus on the here and now and not get carried away. Just be steely and focused. And as relaxed as possible. Mefinks.

I think having a few steady players in the squad will help with nerves. Whether they play or not the likes of Garbutt, Turts, Ballard and Ward will help us stay focussed

For sure. And Dougall I'd say. And loan players are less invested cos they probably won't be here after this season. So Embleton and Gabriel too. And Critch doesn't look at league tables and doesn't look ahead. They'll all want to achieve promotion for the thrill but their futures don't depend upon it.

Pompey will be dangerous in the play offs. Not sure just how good they are but they're in the winning habit now.

I feel the same. 😕 Games we are expected to win are the hardest ones.

I've convinced myself that we'll slip on this banana skin so it won't be too much of a shock if we do. BUT, if we draw, that's a positive and I'll be pleased. If we win, I'll be "OTM" and very giddy. Sometimes being a "glass half empty" is a sane policy. 😄

I'm feeling confident today, have just made a bet on a Blackpool win, odds have come in a bit since they were 2-1 a few days ago, which is a shame, should have wagered before.

Facts to consider;
Blackpool have won last 5 away
Blackpool unbeaten in 14
Lincoln not won in 5
Lincoln players have not had a game for about two weeks
Lincoln squad recovering from Covid outbreak

I can't see us losing this, in fact I think we will win comfortably.
As we know football is a cruel mistress, I hope I'm not wrong here, my first bet for a while. I have probably cursed things for us.
