Rose Tinted: Someone is Due A Hiding
Having taken on board the rest of the STMI columnist views I still feel this is the game where we will finally deliver. Respect for the opposition is one thing but our beloved club has been beholden and doffing our caps for too long. Time for the Imps to shine our hooves, sharpen our claws and really bite back. Yes there are injury concerns but with fox-in-the-box Thomlinson and Fairhurst fit, plus Rowe, and Nicky Wright Wright Wright back I smell goals today.
Rose Tinted’s view
Look outside, the sun is out the sky is blue
and there ain’t a cloud to spoil the view
Everyone is suggesting a set-piece will settle it and, yes, that could be the breakthrough for either side. But if Lincoln get one early, the long overdue goal feast could be on the cards to end Salisbury’s mini revival. Newton or Rowe will supply it, Boyce will be at the heart of it and Thomlinson will feed on the scraps. Then for me it is a test of character for Salisbury. Will the Whites wilt or will they come back at us allowing Lincoln to cut them down on the counter?
A really good win would not only lay down another marker for the rest of the division, it would be great for the Banks. Sincil Bank will continue to be a fortress with a 100% record where big and small teams will fear to tread. But the Co-Op Bank will also be pleased as the crowds start breaking through the 3,000 barrier. A 3 or 4 goal win would restore the faith of so many missing fellow Imps in both the Echo and The Lincolnshire Co-operative Stands. That will afford the manager a bigger budget ready for January, who knows maybe even Vadaine Oliver might come back on loan as we could afford a contribution to his wages if the manager allows.
Yes I am a silly old Optimist, but with a glass half full you always get to smile. Come on lads a big win will really set the season up and the response from the faithful will really take your breath away.
