Title: Lincoln V Swindon Official Matchday Thread
Post by: woolster on Saturday, February 3, 2018, 10:00:47
can't believe no one has started one yet, first one i've done,
2.0 defeat

I agree, a couple of goals defeat despite our current run of form.

2-1 defeat. All goals from set pieces. At least one red card also.

Apparently Lincoln are expecting 9,000+ attendance today we have sold 460 as of yesterday.

Tough, tough game. Biggest test since Luton away on paper, when you take into consideration the crowd and the pressure starting to crank. Could be a really good indicator of where this team is going over the next 16 or so games.

Would take a point, and would do the same on Tuesday, but expect one win and one defeat in no particular order.

Obviously we've got a tough run but it seems everyone up there is playing each other in the next few weeks. End of Feb, we'll really start to see the top 5-6 take place, challenging for 2nd and 3rd.

Big home support, TimmyE v Frecklington and Preston v Rhead will be interesting, 2-2 draw.

Post by: 4D on Saturday, February 3, 2018, 10:28:33
9000+? Are they offering cheap tickets or is it because we're in town?

Large percentage are season ticket holders

Large percentage are season ticket holders
They sold 5,100 season tickets by the start of the season, thats some achievement as they have never really been that well supported in the past.

Home to Lincoln in 1979 was one of my favourite games ever when we beat them 6-0, they had a huge goalkeeper called Peter Grotier who had a porn moustache and was pretty uselss despite playing for West Ham previously.

It was a day with torrential rain and puddles all over the pitch and we had 3 shots that were crossing the line but stopped in the puddle in the 6 yard box, should have been 9-0.

Probably a good place to get a rare draw. They seem to have a decent squad for this level and see them challenging come May.

1-1.

Post by: Nick Bamosomi on Saturday, February 3, 2018, 10:55:34
I think it's too much to hope for game to be as exciting as the last time we played them at Sincil Bank (donning orange caps - those were the days!!).
I would be delighted with a point as I would have to go into hiding if they did the double over us.

Think we will lose 3-1.

Hopefully we can win two out of the next four.  Win today would be a great start.  I think we need to score first. 

2-1  Norris and Taylor.  Woolery subbed in the 3rd minute for not warming up properly.

Pre match not quite in the Cultural Quarter in The Square Sail.

But of a trundle by train to get here.
The derelict malthouses outside Sleaford are quite impressive.

A STFC following milestone of sorts today.
This will be the 92 current clubs visited.
Seven short on current grounds.
Death will come before getting a chance to visit some of those.

The Romans, Danes, Normans and the Police Interceptors have all emerged victorious here.
No reason why some streetwise Moonrakers can't do the same.
Although The Spartans at Thermopylae is a more likely scenario.
Flitcroft as modern day Leonidas.  :hmmm:

Might lose the battle but the campaign can still be won.

1-1.

A draw would be massive. Lincoln are one of Div 4's big hitters, I expect them to fill the auto slots with Luton and Mansfield.

Be interesting to see if Flitters sticks with Tuesday's line up or is tempted by the seeming physicality of Mayo.

Leonidas.... leading scorer at the 38 WC, acknowledged to have invented te overhead kick. Not sure that's quite how I see Flitters.

It got lost in PC.

OK some of it was a bit sledgehammer, and not particularly subtle. But was "he's got a pineapple on his head" to Jason Lee really racist?  Was enquiring of Brighton fans if their bf knew they were at the match really homophobic? Or exhorting female assistant referees etc to reveal natural upper body endowments, sexist?  :hmmm:

Predicted the last 4 outcomes so expecting my run to come to end today. Tough call. Similarly to Stevenage. Obviously would love a win but can't see it.  It's a while since Taylor scored so I'll go for him, from a free kick or a meander into the box. I'll say Rollin will start with Preston. That mans dropping the captain but IF Rollin is the answer then him and Preston would be a better pairing than anyone else. I know nothing.

1-1 (Taylor, 58)
Banks booked
Talking point: Vigs on the bench

Just seen a replay on Tweeter and that's never a red. Penalty mildly but not a red. That should get turned over on appeal. Especially with double jeopardy in our favour. This team seems to have a bit more fight in it since Richards and Banks came in. No shirkers and Mayonnaise looks like he can actually find a pass from CB as well as being a big bastard. Let's get a third!

We should go all out and get a third then soak the fuckers up and play rthem at their own game for the rest of the half (kick lumps out of them etc.). Play percentage counter attack and bring Woolery on. Let him and Elsnik have free reign to run at them on the break. Well that's what i'd do.  :pint:

Anderson is offering no cover at all for Taylor but hes been making some good runs, we seem to be a flexible 441/351 at the moment with Gordon pushing forwards, he may decide on putting a more defensive player like Dunne on instead of Anderson/or if we stay 441 then Gordon may go off.

True but adrenaline is a great thing. If they keep being dirty that'll keep the blood flowing. However if their manager calms things down and recognises they have to get more technical/clinical then we could be in trouble. We can counter it though by playing them how they played us in the first half. Basically kick the shit out of them. Game will get slower. Pitch is going to get heavier/cut up. Soggy old winters tie. Going to be an interesting 2nd half!

Post by: RobertT on Saturday, February 3, 2018, 16:01:56
What an odd half.  Lincoln allowed it to be fat too stretched giving us the two opportunities, both taken well.  Richards is a pretty good player for this level.  Thought it was a red, he should have more trust in the keeper and just apply pressure, not dive in.  New boy is a big presence, no idea yet on ability.  It is terrible in terms of quality but actually a bit compelling for a change.  Not sure if we will hold on and win or get spanked, either is likely I think, but you canít fault the effort.  So far the difference seems to be us having to play on the counter, where we have looked a little more dangerous this season and structure went out the window.

I hate us sitting back but it seems to be the Flitcroft way when we are ahead lately, we need steel as Lincoln are a hard/dirty side who will run and run. We will tire with 10 men.

Saw that with the Elsnik effort. The lad has oodles of ability, up and over, strike just on the half volley, wouldn't have been out of place in the Prem with that kind of technique. He see's stuff well ahead. Going to be an absolute baller as long as his fitness stays good.

Can't fault anyone bar the fumble by RCC and the penalty from Preston, massive defensive performance as Lincoln didn't actually threaten goal genuinely until the fumble went in.

Mayo, Lancashire and Purkiss were brilliant as was Banks and Elsnik.

Great point at a really tough ground.

A foul was my first thought, RCC was bundled over the line but I wasn't sure it wasn't Robertson or another defender that bundled him in the net?

He probably should have not tried to catch the ball and punch it out, but its all in hindsight.

3 massive games coming up against Accy, Mansfield and Wycombe.

Wycombe last min winner 4-3. Accrington won 3-2. we drew obvs. Called this tie. Tuesday night is massive (for both teams) but if we want an auto position this is the tie to win. We expected nothing today, after the pen and red we expected even less. to get in a winning position was an awesome effort from the lads. A cheap goal after being resolute for 50+ mins. A point we'll take in reflection but we actually were worth the 3pts today. This kind of effort will take us over the line. The teams working for each other. Still one loss in 7 with 5 wins. a rare draw. so us on 51pts and Accy on 52pts. As predicted the winner of that takes (doal diff aside) takes 3rd place on Tues night then it makes next Saturday all the more interesting. Will we look at this match come season end as a "If only we'd hung on for 2 more mins". Still we should be good for the play-offs at a minimum. Tedious today but more to come. Great effort. You Reds!

I would have taken a point at the start of the game and even more so at 22 minutes.  Now I'm absolutely gutted we didn't get 3.  Nothing worse than conceding in stoppage time.  If only that Elsnik strike had gone in to make it 3-1.

Swindon will feel aggrieved but could be an invaluable point. Lots of food for thought we definitely donít like teams going down to ten.

A draw that feels like a win!

A game of 2 crap keepers. Swindon were deeply unimpressive though and we should have beaten them comfortably

Got out of jail there. Probably the poorest performance for three months. Cudos to Swindon though, who looked a really good side. We didn't win a second ball all afternoon, and Bostwick looked like a fish out of water back in midfield.

That was terrible! Not sure Waterfall and Wilson are a great partnership. Everyone was very sloppy in possession, final ball was terrible. Farman was Farman. Yet we still didn't lose against a very good side. Bad day at the office, move on.

Yep some fans of teams cannot see past their own noses.

We won't come up against a more physical side that batter you on the pitch and that hoof the ball into the box at every opportunity than Lincoln, they don't play pretty but we didn't defend pretty today either!

It felt like a cup game with backs to the wall looking for that win, which we so nearly got, still not convinced it wasn't a foul on RCC but will have to see a replay and of the red card which some fans say looked weak but I just saw a foul again from Preston.

2nd time he has done that in 3 games, although I thought he could have let RCC try and save it when Green was clean through, it was at a slight angle and not easy to score from..

I just meant in the sense of after going to 1-2 so from 40mins we were resolute up until the last couple of corners. Arguably Bostwick probably shouldn't have been on the pitch. There did seem to be a foul on RCC, he maybe should've gone for a punch instead of a claim. That's all hindsight though and it's pretty unfortunate but tbf the lads deserve credit today. Fine margins; Elsnik other side of the bar and it's a win for us. They really did not offer very much. Ourselves yeah, certainly resolute. There seems a real work effort amongst the lads. They might be down about it right now, but it's on to Tuesday and there is no reason why we can't go there and get a result.

Always a rollercoaster!

Spot on. Very composed and has more mobility than our other central defenders. Thought whole team showed great character. Banks and Elsnik are quality players and real shame about RCC's error which he has apologised for on Twitter. Looked like a promotion team today and much better than Lincoln. Really enjoyed the game,  their fans showed how to support a team for 90 mins at home. Imagine if we'd been two one down playing against 10 men at the CG, the moaning would have been at a new level!  Very proud of the team today and our away support, applauding players off , which was totally deserved.

Yeah it does, so double jeopardy comes in to play here. Seems the ref has forgotten that rule. Then again he may as well have been from Spalding or Gainsborough. Awful ref.

 It looked nothing more than a tangle as their player slowed down and Preston continued running. If we don't appeal it then that's silly. If that gets looked at by a panel then I'm certain they'll overturn it. Obviously that's only my opinion but looking at it says to me it was a yellow, with a penalty given.

Stop it on 3 seconds. Think the player goes to shoot and they get tangled.
There's no "intentional" foul. I stand by it. Yellow card and penalty.
I hope we appeal the straight red. Ref has forgotten the new rules.

This group will fight for everything, they may lack a bit of quality at times but they were fucking brilliant today.

First half we were all over them even with 10 men( not a deliberate foul, so not a red card? Red forgot the rules?!)

2nd half we sat back and dealt with everything they threw until the final minute. Even so, that's a brilliant point and everyone would have taken a point 1-0 down and down to 10.

Leaving aside the sickening late equaliser, that's a decent point away from home and think anyone of us would have taken that at 2.30. And sounds like the new CB had a decent debut, esp as it was a bit chucked in at the deep end. So that makes 3 good Jan signings, all along the spine of the team. I'm happy :)

Great collective effort yesterday, from the team and travelling support.
After having defended so well, that was a very disappointing goal to give away.
RCC is a decent enough keeper but just one or two little doubts starting to form.

Oldham must have a good midfield, despite the shit they are in, for Banks not to be playing.
Looks more than capable of playing at L1 level. Must be worth a punt in the summer.

Impressive debut from Rollin.
A future trivia question re having players with connections to both Congos in the same squad.

The home support generate a great atmosphere and the drum fits in quite well.
Their drummer is no Gene Krupa but there are plenty of much more annoying ones around.
Didn't mind the siren, much better than dishing out those clapping aid things or whatever they are.

Noticed a lady in the away end who looks very much like Theresa May, which might explain why our League2 Exit process hasn't been an overly smooth one so far.

Weather forecast doesn't look promising for Tuesday.
Thermals on standby, but if they do call it off, then do it early.

https://twitter.com/MrReiceCook/status/959839832821387265

There were loads of really great replies from Town fans including some TEF'ers (Messrs Batch and Bamboo amongst them)

When you read on here about 'that' FB group and the general wankshit attitude of some of our fans it kind of makes you despair but reading all those messages restores my faith that the majority of us are pretty decent types.

I would feel 10 feet tall if I was RCC reading all of those messages and would be chomping at the bit to get out on to the pitch for the next game instead of (perhaps) feeling slightly apprehensive. Support like that makes a difference and it's what being a fan is about.

Utter howler by RCC imo, judging by the way the rest of the team berated him & I didn't see a foul (could be wrong?).

Felt a bit sorry for Norris who had a great start to the game & thought Richards & Banks candidates for MoM.

Good point, but feels like a defeat.  

To be honest Norris was playing the best he had all season when taken off, very unfair on him but something had to be done I guess and he was the obvious choice, he won a couple of headers and passed the ball well till he was taken off.

Lincoln had at least 8 thugs playing, they are a bullying team and I am so happy that we stood up to it, last season our boys would have crumbled under that sort of bullying and fouling and the constant hooooooofing of ballls into our box.

Great defensive performance all round right up till the fumble at the end, I haven't seen it again yet but my first thoughts were he was pushed but he certainly should have punched the ball not tried to catch it, but he did make a couple of good solid saves before that.

Banks is a great find, looks perfect sat in front of the back 4/5 protecting them and can make runs, tackle, head and pass the ball. Sign him on asap.

Elsnik is the best player at the club by a country mile, his shooting and passing skills are exceptional, my only slight complaint is that he has a great shot so please shoot more often! their keeper was dodgy as fuck with long ranger shots so we should have peppered his goal a bit more.

The whole defence looked solid and working as a unit when we had 4 or 5 at the back, Purkiss has come back transformed in confidence and his versaitlity at the back is a major asset, comfortable at CB or RB and making runs with the ball. Lancashire played his best game in a Town shirt too IMO.

The new lad Mayo (as I still can't spell his name unless I google it!) is huge and mobile and can head and pass and a fair bit of pace for a 6 foot 3 defender, would like him back next season if we could in whatever division we are in, bags of potential and not scared of upsetting the more seasoned pros of other clubs, he bullied Rhea as good as he got and stood up to another Bully in Bostwick...who took one look at his eyes and backed off when face to face near the end!

Taylor was a bit off the pace at LB but he was up against one of the best wingers I have seen this season and Anderson gave him little cover, most of their attacks when they did came down that side, Taylor is good attacking but defensively still a little weak.

Gordon needs to improve his delivery on crosses, he doesn't have the pace that he thinks he has so rarely can beat a defender for pace but looked better when we went 4 at the back and he was pushed up, still not 1st team standard yet IMO more of an impact sub.

Lincoln, for a team so many fancy for promotion, looked a one trick pony side, bully, bully, bully, kick, bitch, dive, kick it long to the target man (Green) who was the only player I would have out of that whole team, he has pace and control and a good target man but dives a little too easily when challeneged as did all the Lincoln players TBF.

They had one outlet, the right wing, otherwise it was just a massive boot into the box at every chance they had, they looked lost when we played it on the floor against them.

A good result though no matter what and I would have taken a draw before the game so am not unhappy but it could so easily have been 3 points.

I thought Swindon played really well with a man down

Yes credit must be given to Swindon. I didnít once feel like we were playing against 10

Swindon a good side especially away

We could even have won it with the last kick, although that would have been unfair on Swindon who's ten men outplayed us at times. Overall though, a valuable point

Found wanting again against a 'better' team. That's Luton, Coventry, Swindon and Notts County we've not beaten from a winning position....we lack a bit of quality, guile and finesse against the better teams.

Credit to Swindon, though, they looked better than decent to me. Didn't play like they were down to 10 and should have added to their tally with one of those two late chances they had

Swindon were sharper than us and defended well. I was very glad of a point.

Swindon looked a big team, even with a centre half sent off still managed to have 5 giants at thr back at the end. They have a good away record for a reason.

Swindon played a lot better with 10 men and you would have thought we were the ones with the player disadvantage.

Swindon also hit the woodwork in the Second Half and missed a glaring chance when a cross ball just missed their striker and a brilliant last ditch tackle from Wilson when their player was through. We kept on going but didn't test their keeper until his blunder at the end. It was at this stage that some of Swindon's players started to tire.

What a good display from 10 man Swindon, only tired in the last ten minutes. Their fans and management will have gone back disappointed to not have earned 3 points.

I can easily see why Swindon have the best away record in the league - even with 10 men they managed the game well and showed good skill at times.

Swindon created nothing, defended OK but didnít look like promotion material.

This Lincoln side never says die and in the end we still deserved a point as Swindon were happy and in the main comfortable defending there 18 yard box. In the end it was a competition who had the crapest keeper.

Didn't look we'd score in a month of Sunday's. Credit to Swindon they were superb.

In 50 years I cannot recall a game with 2 poorer keepers.

Swindon are a quality team, especially away from home...and I think they are the best team I have seen this year, in the League, at Sincil Bank.

They performed really well with 10 men and were frighteningly good at times. All credit to them.

I donít recognise this great Swindon team some people are commenting on. They created nothing, defended well with 10 men but thatís all. Not a patch on Coventry, but didnít cheat as much. Very friendly fans though.

They were very good...but not great. Any team that does so well with 10 men are a very good team

I agree Swindon are a good side but not the best we have seen!

Not understanding all the "great side" plaudits for Swindon. If not for our own weakness(es) they would have gone away with NIL next to their team name 10 men or not. Yes they battled well with 10 men but I didn't see much to suggest that 11 v 11 they would have presented a huge challenge if we didn't let soft goals in.

Good result even if heart-breaking at end.

For the last couple of seasons plenty of us have been saying that supporters can put up with a lot if they genuinely believe that the team (and the management) are giving it everything. 

We seem to have that now.

I'll be glad if Accrington is off again.

Taylor is good attacking but defensively still a little weak.
That'll probably improve with experience though ;)

And putting a zimmer frame between him and the ball!

The defensive part of his game has always been suspect but his dead ball deliveries have made up for that, but yesterday was the first time he has come up against a half decent winger who at times did run circles around him but as I stated he was given no cover by Anderson.

I doubt he will come up against a player as willing to take him on as he did yesterday for the rest of the season though so its no biggy.

There were loads of really great replies from Town fans including some TEF'ers (Messrs Batch and Bamboo amongst them)
stand by it, when any other player makes a mistake there is someone else who can bale them out. keeper makes a mistake, goal 99% of the time..

I still think RCC should have done better, still think it's a mistake, but it's not like he's lobbed it in. hard catch under pressure.

no doubt in my mind a focused and in form Vigs is the better player. But he's been disappointing this year, RCC deservs the spot on merit. not that I think we'll see Vigs again unless Power pulls rank

I have watched the replay slowed down of the goal and I am convinced he is pushed into the net by the Lincoln number 9 Rhead or the dirty bastard Bostwick, they both go flying into the net along with RCC, still the ref gave it so we move on.

There no doubt that a Vigs when he is concentrating and confident is by far the better keeper but RCC has better kicking and distribution, which is a big part of our play under Flitcroft.

Such a waste of Vigs if he can't patch it up with Flitcroft but hes not THAT good hes just a perfectly adequate keeper who could with games, effort in  training and a change of attitude become a fairly good keeper in time.

We have a keeper that is supposedly better and less likely to make such a 'mistake'. He should have been playing instead, as he is paid to do, but wasn't because he's been acting like a massive Wellens. The club invest in certain personnel only for them to not be playing without good reason. If I blame anybody, it's him.

That's said with all due respect to RCC, but we should be able to field our best players.

I quite agree. LV has taken the the school of "dummy spitting" as coached by a certain Riyad Mahrez, amongst many others who have behaved like a "I'm better than the club". Hopefully (by his tweets nonetheless) LV is realising he won't get anywhere fast by being a stubborn prick. If he looks at our history of GKs, we've had some bloody talented keepers here (yes some shockers too) who have gone on to even better things. Digby, Hammond, Given, Flowers, Brezovan, Heaton, and Foderingham to name a few of the top o my head.

If he can grow up he can become a very good keeper.

Totally. The guy had big bollocks just to go public, when he didn't even need to. That's respect right there. Hope he does take the kind responses to kick on and do us all proud on Tues.

This far he's hardly been the worst keeper we've had. He'll be fine Tuesday. unless its snowed off

RCC is nowhere near as bad as that Italian keeper PdC signed, what was his name? Lanzano wasn't it? totally unmemorable apart from several howlers.

Funny you say that, Lanzano started out ok but he had very little confidence at all. Was surprised to read he is only about 26 so the same age as Wes (19/20 when we signed them. Bloody hell where ha 7 years gone!) and young but in hindsight he wasn't really what we needed. Especially coming straight to England with know use of the language, despite PDC  installing an Italian contingent (most of which soon left). PDC got Foderingham on loan and the rest is history. Maybe with some careful development he could've been coached well. Wes was streets ahead though. Think he played about 9 games didn't he?

The team look more settled with RCC. He fucked up yesterday, he's admitted it, town fans have got behind him, we move on. It's the fate of a goalkeeper. Don't forget vigs is also capable of a fuck up or a sending off. I'll happily stick with RCC.

It boils my piss when a keeper makes a mistake and gets slagged off.
A "striker" could miss two or three open goals  but then side foot one in and is hailed as a hero.
