Taylor Transfer Turmoil The Tipping Point For Imps
Could Grimsby Town , Mansfield Town, Stockport County, Cambridge United, Wrexham FC or Kidderminster Harriers be amongst the interested posse of BSP clubs said to be after Jamie Taylor? Even though Holdsworth says he does not want him to move, his article, in this weeks local paper, will heighten the players availability as opposed to quell it. This is designed to either make Holdsworth a hero if and when JT does not leave, or a martyr to the cause. Good old hard working -have to do it on my own- David, soldiering on at a no money club he will not bankrupt. Even though he has been allowed him to bring in 45 and rising.
Vic Erzantarz cannot believe what tomorrows chip paper has brought us today.
Hit-man Hearn’s ruptured achilles means he will be out for months, leading to the mid-table Mariners managing just 6 goals in their first five games, with a resultant win, three draws and a defeat. Wrexham may have knocked back a Bury approach for Andy Morrell but last seasons runners up are tenth with just 5 goals in five games yielding two wins, 2 draws and a defeat. Stockport, one place above them are also averaging just over a goal a game (6 from 5). Mansfield look more in need of a defender with 14 in the against column and 9 for, suggesting the big spending Stags will at least sit this one out. Cambridge have bagged eight and are starting to climb, although Smith has already joined them from the Imps this season for a fee despite an initial hands-off rebuke. Kidderminster have, despite huge investment, found themselves at the foot of the BSP. With just 2 goals scored and a reasonable respectable 8 conceded, it is clear why they have lost all five.
This season the Lincoln City story is another train wreck in slow motion for the Imps waning faithful. Without Jamie, City would be just one goal better off than Kidderminster Harriers, who are at rock bottom. Taylor, 3 goals in 5, has been a ray of sunshine at Sincil Bank, as the injury and revolving door policy clouds continue to gather. With headlines like these we are hardly likely to see more than the 2009 fans (1931 home die-hards) that turned up last Saturday as we move into what has to be seen as a vital six games. Home games against Ebbsfleet on Saturday and Alfreton Tuesday are must wins and need to be the focus. Then it is Telford away, Hyde at home, Tamworth away and Nuneaton at home. Surely these must yield at least a ten points. If not Holdsworth may not even get his chance to lead the Imps into trial by Television, away to Forest Green, to follow.
Thereafter, October’s fixtures are foreboding to say the least with managerial precident at Sincil Bank, suggesting a November change. The question is will a Taylor sale be the tipping point or could November be the time that financial shortfall comes home to roost for Bob Dorrian and a board who preach collective responsibility, when it suits?
