Neils Stats – Heroes Don’t Become Zeroes Overnight.
Ben Tomlinson just about earns the MoM against Salisbury City. His tireless running – once again through the pain barrier – throughout the game illustrated the frustration of TEAM LINCOLN as we failed to overcome a club that came and parked the bus. We will get plenty more of that this season, at a venue where even a point is seen as earning enough of the scalp. It is frustrating for both the players and the fans but who would not have taken 13 points and fourth going to Barnet. Harsh perhaps, but heroes do not become zeroes overnight, The flexibility in formation (4-2-3-1 Wrexham et al, 4-3-1-2 Dartford & yesterday plus the willingness to change to 4–1-4-1 and even flat 4-3-3 and 3-4-3) is a refreshing change, but if we want 100% consistency we need a far bigger budget than just over £400k! That isn’t going to happen so let’s not be to quick to shoot the geese that have already laid 13 precious eggs.

To follow a combined stats on Sunday starting with the match stats & table plus the normal player ratings, minutes, fouls cards and of course concise heroes & villains (goal machines, creators & card collectors count). The full blow by blow a view from the Stacey West Match report is available here – it shows the Imps superiority, although the lack of a plan C (the manager moved from a 4-3-1-2 diamond back to his 4-2-3-1) with a big target man option was evident. They will cost money even on loan unless Sunderland and Middlesbrough are feeling generous. It appears something the manager has in his plans, with a loan budget and targets in mind.
