City scrape past West Ham in the Friday game. Rumblings that Potty Pep will jump before he’s pushed.

Any of you lot on your way to a match over the weekend? Where do we think the CUPSETS are going to spring from? Just how big is the goal bonanza going to be in the Watford Burton showdown?


#2

Not heading to a match but really hoping my beloved* Imps can overturn lovable Mick McCarthy’s Tractor Boys.

Always find it quite funny when some of my diehard Lincoln City FC pals post UTI on social media. To many it means Up The Imps but having worked for the NHS for many years to me it will always mean Urinary Tract Infection.

*only recently become beloved when I found out we were top of the Vanarama National League over Christmas.


#3

Just about to get on the coach. #spitfires


#4

Will be watching Preston NE vs Arsenal later on, albeit in the north west in a slightly rough pub as an Arsenal fan. Should be entertaining


#5

Post this whenever they’re on tv but my former PE teachers are manager/assistant manager of Lincoln haha

I actually think it’s really cool as when we were at school he was still player/manager of some of the local sides so he’s obviously been given a chance at a bigger club now

Extra fact: Ipswich goalie dean gerken went to my school too so this is a big my school showdown


#6

Strong Adulting.

Ha no way, that’s incredible! I would never have thought that could be a logical career progression but fair play to them! I can’t honestly say I’m the biggest Imps fan but they’re definitely doing something right. We used to be long ball specialists but according to my uncle we run for days now.

Ikr! Going to keep it as ID for the bar


#9

I’m pretty sure that Paul Clement used to be a PE teacher in Sutton.

#12

I’ve already done my £1 acca. 10 matches including 2 draws (Norwich v Southampton and Rotherham v Oxford) makes it void for this thread.


#13

Hoping we smash Rotherham later


#14

Julian Speroni should start today and break our goalkeeper appearance record. Jules always seems such a nice genuine guy and not a typical footballer, such a rarity in the modern game.


#15

Just realised that Chelsea v Peterboro is three o’clock on SUNDAY. What the actual fuck?


#16

We are on TV tomorrow against Spurs

Anyone want an insight into the state of Villa since we got relegated ?!


#17

I might watch some foot to ball today. Do they still show the fa cup on free tele?


#18

Glad we’ve got that out of the way…


#19

Turns out it’s not foot to ball day on free tv but it’s okay as I currently have a blurry red team doing a foot to ball on kodi


#20

2/2 so far for the TV picks being future classics…
