Simmo Wants Win – Can Imps Go Top?

Gary Simpson has assembled a team to be proud of and one that could go top if they beat Dartford FC on Saturday.  Its time to sharpen your horns and polish your hooves Imps because these Imps can stand on the shoulders of football men.  In a rousing pre-match battle cry to raise the heckles the manager describes the side as ‘Winners’ who “want to wear the shirt’ and are ‘ working their absolute stones off’. Quality! STMI have been telling you for some time that this will be our year, but the optimism of the the manager is just what this City needed to hear.

Simmo has assembled a team of winners  – nothing short of a miracle given the £400,000 budget afforded him – but it is the desire in the dressing room and a tightness in a squad that is the real edge. Every player knows when they come in on a Monday that they have a chance of playing a part in the RISE of THE IMPS, perhaps that is why Simmo has never had a bad dressing room.  They can rely on him and therefore Simmo can rely on them.

Its Simples as Simmo says.

“I learned a while ago that the more you fill your dressing room with winners, the better chance you have of winning. These lads are working so hard for each other and they are getting their just rewards.”

There are no cliques in the Team Lincoln dressing room and it shows with Lincoln enjoying their best start for 6 years.  The Imps have yet to win away having drawn with Woking and lost 0-1 to highly fancied Cambridge, but Dartfort could be the start of something big.  For too long our wonderful football club has underachieved.  Now is the time to start believing that we can make a record 7th return to the Football League.
