On or Off i wonder
bloody covid at Imps

Chizzy confirmed that Nick Horne had said the game will definitely go ahead - It's an interesting one because Lincoln are on the same games played and only a point behind, however it just feels the club are on very different trajectories at the moment, they are in awful form and I think the realisation that the early season form has now gone and probably their chance in the Play Offs.Imps chairman says will go ahead come what may
Had it in the work sweep too.I’m sure that a few on here were there on Grand National Saturday in 1991 (Seagram 12-1) when we beat Lincoln 1-0 (with a Dave Bamber goal on 5 minutes if memory serves)
Mind you, DavePick was there in 1896 for our first league match and that ended less well.
The finest films in British cinematic history. Sad to report I nodded off during the classic Carry on Cowboy last night though and missed the Rumpo Kid getting his comeuppance. Sacrilege, must be another age thingClearly watched too many Carry On films as a lad.
At this stage of the season the players who have played regularly will be as fit as they're ever going to be. If anything yesterday's result will focus their minds and as we have seen when our squad has been depleted in can sometimes work in your favour.According to Lincolnshire Live, the training ground has reopened today and Saturday's game at Sincil Bank is set to go ahead.
Lincoln's players and staff will also be tested today.
According to reports, it is hoped Michael Appleton's side will resume training "later this week" ahead of the weekend's game.
So they're only just opening their training ground today, doesn't bode well for them that. Haven't played a game since the 26th March and will be starting training a handful of days before the Saturday - doesn't look good for 'em!
The main detriment though is the fact their training ground has been shut due to COVID. Normally they'd have spent all this week preparing as a team to play us based on our threats and its looking like they're not gonna be in training until a couple of days before the fixture if Appleton's comment of "later this week" is to be believed.At this stage of the season the players who have played regularly will be as fit as they're ever going to be.

I read stats like that and always think that, except for recent times, there’s not one person from our team, playing or managing, who was around during that winless run; we’re always a different proposition to last time. Therefore it’s irrelevant and if this season’s showing us anything, records are there to be broken
Yep agreed look at Man Utd the other week got turned over by Sheffield Utd at home and everybody has beaten them !! Definitely a banana skinIt’s the classic banana skin isn’t it, team massively in form plays team massively out of form and struggling to train properly due to COVID.
Apart from Portman Rd. We've never won there in our history.I read stats like that and always think that, except for recent times, there’s not one person from our team, playing or managing, who was around during that winless run; we’re always a different proposition to last time.

i stayed over in Lincoln last year, a great break, many years ago on a previous forum (seasiders.net i think) i was Lincoln Pool.Really enjoyed last years trip to Lincoln. The match was terrible but the City and the bars were a great night out.
Yes absolutely right - it’s another fixture - don’t disrespect the opposition even if they and you have to play in masks - his is a banana skin fixture given their ordinary home form if there ever was one and we are only 7th in the away points table (half of ours coming in the last few fixtures !Do I detect the first whiff of complacency in the air ? They will put 11 professionals onto the pitch to start, and will have a full bench.
It starts at 0-0, and if we go behind, it will then be a battle.
