Same as every other away match. Not even in the same county ffs

There was a quite a bit of bother pre the game last season, saw a few people with very bloodied heads wandering around. Then there was the Poundland Eminem and his mates in our end in front of us who pushed through the gate between the away end and the biggest home stand amongst other things.

Fuckiong Pussy @mkowlthesexynewversion

We're third in the league, they're 14th.

Windass behind Gregory & Smith

Bannan & Byers/Vaulks  central

Play em off the park

 

Well it worked perfectly last year 

More that we have actually looked better in the last 2 games as an attacking unit playing 3 5 2 - than with those 3 on the pitch at the same time

There’s some decent ale available at the game tomorrow pre match, get yourselves to The Tipsy Imp bar in the fanzone. It’s owned and run by a mate of mine. 

Derby fan at work was praising the away part of the fan zone. Said they were well catered for.

Looking forward to this one.  Gonna be a proper away day with a stupidly early start. My only previous visit to Sincil Bank was the pre season friendly when Jos was manager, when there were more of us than them.  Be interesting to see the place with some home fans in it, even if that spazwit air raid siren is likely to be fucking annoying.  Does sound like last season’s game was pwopa nawty.  Let’s hope we don’t get driven out with pitchforks. 🙄

There’s apparently been some scrapping already… 🙄

Well fair play to anyone who managed to get to bloody Lincoln for 9AM, never mind get there at that time and then have a punch up. 😳

Only way we're going to draw or lose this game is from the stupid passing around the back

Get a second and this is game over. I am totally surprised as to how bad Lincoln are compared to last season. 

Why we're happy with 1-0 is beyond me given what happened first game of the season

Two points dropped there

You could just tell that was going to happen. 60 to 70% possession, well that's not going to hurt any sides when it goes from full back to centre back to centre back to keeper to full back and vice versa.

It was so blatently clear the warning signs were there when they had 2 very good chances thanks to us f*****g around with it from side to side. Drill it into those brains of our footballers, get 2 or 3 before you switch to that sort of anti football mode.

Lincoln were a shadow of the side they were last season

Should have won it. Dominated, created plenty of chances, but paid for missing them, and also some awful delivery from Johnson and Palmer when they got into really good areas.

Some mixed displays today. Windass was poor, wrong decision every time he got it. Vaulks was good out of possession but bad with it. The front two were decent despite the poor delivery. The wing backs were good until the cross.

Bannan and the back three were good. Bannan ran it again. Byers and Dele were decent when they came on.

I actually was happy with a point pre game, but I am disappointed because we have dominated and should have won.

Careless that is the key word from that game. 

Their only opportunities were from our giving away possession.

Careless from Stockdale to let in a scuffed shot

Careless delivery from wide positions all game. Ironically the best pass was from their keeper to Gregory.

For me the intention to crow bar Smith, Gregory and Windass into the starting 11 is not really working.

6/10 performance overall after 8/10 in the first half. Got to be more ruthless
