  1. Very swanky. We got told to keep last year's cards, which will updated for the new season. Reuse the plastic etc. We've got a new manager as of today. Mark Kennedy. The Stone Island of Michael Appleton out, Kennedy's Monclur in! https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/birmingham-city-mark-kennedy-lincoln-23941981
  2. They did indeed! I'd feel a little hard done by if I were a Northampton Town fan though. Though that's football. I don't want to take anything away from Bristol Rovers. They did what they needed to do.
  3. Hill did play mostly juniors with little to no league experience. (Wasn't their keeper 17yo and his second league game?). They didn't have to play that team. Maybe if it was a dead rubber, but this game wasn't.
  4. Beat Crewe 2-1 in a nothing game at the end of the season. Somehow we managed to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. If Crewe's finishing had been any better then we'd have been 0-3 and they'd be cruising. After about 75mins we decided to start playing. Didn't really deserve the win. And then, after the game, the Big Apple has left by mutual consent. I'm sad to see him go. Lots aren't though and the overperformance of last year didn't help the expectation of some fans this year. Will make a good coach with a few more quid behind him, and I think a Championship club and his style of play will suit them. Now for us, a BIG summer which should be interesting. For sure! Ah well, at least you've got a tasty local derby next season.
  5. Good win for us today against Cheltenham 3-0 which cemented our position in the league for next year. 4 consecutive seasons in the 3rd tier for the first time since the early 80s. Phew. It was a bit touch and go over the last few months for a while. I wasn't there today but did go to Fratton Park on Saturday to see us go down fighting 3-2, after coming back from 2-0 down. One more game for me - Crewe at home for the last game of the season. (See you there @Gigawatt?) Clear out and a bit of a refresh in the summer. Bring on Pride Park and Oakwell away next season.
  6. 2-1 away win at the Valley. The Valley is a great stadium, shame it wasn't full. 1100 Imps saw our first ever win there. I had a non-imp friend visiting and she suggested taking the Emirates cable car from Victoria Dock. First time I've travelled by cable car to an away game. Great day.
  7. Thought you'd blown my acca, but as the minutes ticked on, thought it was ripe for a last minute goal. Thanks very much! I do feel for those Dover players a little bit. Gave it all after a big journey. I bet they didn't fly like Stockport did! But that's football innit!
  8. You are on fire. Thanks for the sure-fire bet which paid out before half time!
  9. AFC Wimbledon 0 - Lincoln City 2 Great away day for me and the other 900 Imps. Lovely weather. The new Plough Lane is a funny one as you can't see it until you're on top of it due to the flats etc around it. It's functional and does the job but the bit we were in still has that 'temporary structure' feel. You can cause a lot of noise by banging on the floor and sides! Very friendly stewards and Brixton ales on tap. They were great hosts. Took the lead in the first half from a strike from our guy on loan from Man City. Then for about 15mins at the start of the 2nd Wimbledon had a bit of pressure but couldn't do anything with it. Dodgy ref, for both sides. We had a man sent off around 70mins. Should have been a yellow, looking back, but hey ho. Wimbledon also might have had a pen on another day. Then in the mid-80s as my nerves were jangling, John Marquis closed down the keeper out of position, blocked and sqaured to Teddy Bishop who coolly slotted it home. Thank you very much. Bit more daylight now between us and them in the league. Just a few more points please.
  10. Knew this was going to be a difficult game. We basically did nothing to threaten you. You nullified everything efficiently. We weren't terrible, it was that you were pretty good. Was great to be at PR with big crowd (25k) under the floodlights.
  11. We played really well and never let Wednesday get going. Super atmosphere with a full stadium and 2000 away fans. Great goals from us. Makes the journey back to London far more pleasant! Looking forward to Ipswich on Tues.
  12. Three games in a row now for me. Sheffield Wednesday (h) tomorrow, Ipswich (a) on tues and Wimbledon (a) on Sat. We are absolutely rubbish (at the moment?) with a terrible home form and the defeat last week for the first time made me question the manager. His methods aren't to be working under the coshh and is reluctant to change it. I didn't mind his static touchline pose when we were doing well. Now it's pissing me off. Poor poor poor. Relegation form. Ah well, bring on tomorrow, should be tasty with Wednesday bringing a full house.
  13. Would have taken a point against Wycombe before the game, but always annoying when they equalise late. (We aren't in the mood this season to keep clean sheets!) Brooke Norton Cluffy, a loanee from Arsenal made his first professional start (he's come on a few times recently), and was MOTM for me and obviously had his readdy brek this morning.
  14. As a teacher I see my form every day for 10mins in the morning. For the last couple of weeks (as well as doing the register) we've been doing Wordle. I like to cover current affairs and stuff that is relevant to them. Today I had the live BBC stream of the Olympics on and it was great. Biathalon blew their minds. "How can that be a sport?" They said. We got in to Speed Skating, Snowboarding, as well as ethics and other topical stuff (is that real snow?). . None of my 16yos knew there was an Olympics on. My mornings for the next week are sorted and I feel that I am enlightening some youngsters at least!
  15. The pleasures of having a season ticket! And I want my money's worth! The downs make the ups all the sweeter!
  16. Hah yes, thank goodness for the rearranged covid fixtures I can't make it to! Might save our season.
  17. Oh dear you were right. Left house 8.30, got home 21:45, due to weather delays up North. Had a good chat with some Ipswich fans though on the train who were getting home about 1am so I can't complain too much. (As an aside, I do meet lots of sound footy fans on trains that do like a chat/drink, makes the journeys go much faster). Lost 2-1 to Burton. Jimmy Floyd has them well drilled and they are all built like units. We struggled in the first half with the wind, then went ahead early in the second due to Marquis (2 in 2) , and then didn't have another shot on target. 6 home wins in 13 months. Shocking. Tactics work away but not home. Invites high press and we can't get it to our midfielders. So frustrating. However I saw folk I'd not seen in a while and good to see @Gigawatt and Gw-JR so still had a fun day. So, back in two weeks for Wycombe at home. Soz @Gigawatt!
  18. I'll take that prediction but I think it'll be too much. We're still paper thin at the back with injuries. Still looking nervously over our shoulders until we get a few more wins on the go, and our home form improves. Marquis was what we needed upfront though. A striker to stick those goals in. First win at yours since the early 80s. I'm going on Saturday (v Burton), and my attendance is surely the kiss of death.
  19. Yeah I don't have a PS5 or a 4K TV. I'm happy with 1080. I only have a standard PS4. I do want shorter load times of course, and if they are acceptable with an SSD retrofitted , then that be fine for me. I think stock will be too annoying. I could get a cheap Pro and put an SSD in there. Although I do like the sound (feel) of the haptic feedback. I guess I'm going to have to wait for the deep dive reviews.
  20. Left my house at 7.20 this morning..Got back about 10.15pm. Should have put the game to bed in the first half, but Cambridge gave us the sucker punch in the 90th. At least my 3hr journey home was entertaining with some London-based Cambridge fans. Yes my team lost, but I had a good laugh and made the most of it.
  21. OK. I don't have a PS5 currently or a 4K tV. All I want is the best at 1080p. I'm not going to upgrade my telly but my console is a GT only machine, so I would buy a digital PS5 just for it, if the load times are way better and the haptic feedback is as good as it sounds. If I deem the differences to be not worth it, I'll stick with a PS4 pro.
  22. Is there a handy table or similar that shows the differences between the PS4 & 5 version? There's a bit of info here and a bit of info there - is it all in once place anywhere? Just working out which version I want.
  23. Only named 4 on the bench at Sunderland. First back to back wins of the season. Changed the tactics a bit and that has helped a lot which has given the team some belief. They've always been not bad just stuck in a rut. Just got Morgan Whittaker and Liam Cullen on loan from Swansea. Still need a few more players though. Fingers crossed for a good second half of the season. I will be there on Saturday for Cambridge @ home, first game in a bit because of covid cancellations. I did float the idea of Plymouth away but I have to juggle seeing my other half etc and I have to let some go sadly. @neoELITE FA Cup 12:30 kickoff is a bit tough innit. Have you got a chance of a ticket?
  24. I was meant to be going to Lincoln v Donny today but I cancelled the trip before the game was called off. As I live in London, the idea of the tube, 2 trains, pubs and the footy didn't seem like the best plan, given that we are (supposed) to be entertaining my mum & dad at Xmas. LNER will give me credit back to my account for the train fare which I can use next year, so I'm not out of pocket. Only downside is I won't be able to make the rearranged midweek game because living in London those are impossible for me. I've got a ticket for Ipswich away on NYD. Can't see it happening at this rate. We shall see. Best wishes to you all.
