BSP Away Support 12/13 Hatters, Mariners Stags & Imps deserve Medals!

The belated away support stats 2012/13 for Luton Town, Grimsby, Wrexham, Stockport, Mansfield, Newport, Cambridge, Kidderminster, Hereford, Dartford, Lincoln, Macclesfield, Nuneaton, Telford, Woking, Southport, Tamworth, Ebbsfleet, Alfreton, Forest Green, Hyde, Barrow, Braintree and Gateshead. Outstanding support as ever from the Hatters – Luton that is and Stockport who have both had another shocker given their fabulous support ……but there is always next Saturday.

apologies for the delay, been writing a book in memory of Richard Butcher for charity and the broken heel has had me hanging like a bat at times! thanks as ever for stopping by and reading Neil Gentleman-Hobbs 

As usual we give both the average and the total turnstile clicks of the travelling fans. Once again you were loud and should be rightly proud considering the prices and the climate. The average taken away in the BSP was 195 plus the shrapnel down by 15 on the previous season. The Mighty Imps recovered from 183 to 228 after another shocker.

Wrexham Deserve 3 Promotion Places For Conference Clubs

For 3 promotion places to have any chance, Luton, Grimsby, Wrexham, Alfreton,  Braintree,  Cambridge,  Chester FC,  Dartford, Forest Green, Gateshead, Grimsby,  Hereford,  Hyde, Kidderminster, Lincoln,  Macclesfield, Nuneaton, Southport, Tamworth, Welling United and Woking fans need to act now.  Wrexham have for the second year failed to go up, something their flowing football deserved.  Luton have a budget League 2 & 1 clubs would envy, yet they too are marooned.  STMI urge all BSP, Championship and League 1 teams to back us, surely asking League 2 clubs would be like asking Turkeys to vote for Christmas. Please sign our petition  here and copy and paste this article onto your forums – we have 1250 we need 10k so ask your clubs to put it on their official sites. This is a call to arms, a fair and just fight for the right, nothing more, nothing less from, one fan to every other (and any League fans too, if you have a sporting sense of right and wrong)

Please help, please sign and thanks for reading Neil Gentleman-Hobbs

Ahead of a scheduled Football League full vote this summer, this is Football’s chance to be seen as a shining light in an unfair world – to be fair and willing to share. Give that right to fans and teams who dare to dream. You, the fans and the Football League, are the gateway and the custodians of the people’s game in so many ways. Please, surely there has to be at least one more set of golden keys?

Urge your members to give the Conference one more promotion spot. Is it so much so ask with the new TV deal just about to shower your members with even more cash? We are not asking for the cash handout, just give our teams the right to play our way onto the table.

BSP fans, believe we can do this together and rest assured The Football League will get an email every time someone signs.

Akin to the economy, we are starting to become stale and starved down here, through a two up two down system that blights – is that fair in the peoples game?  No its Feudalism football, an increasing reflection of life designed to stop the dream, kill the passion. Once again the enterprise dies. That may be shaping up to be Modern Britain but surely Football can be seen to send out the right message? We are not asking for your money just the right for 3 teams to join the party each season. Let us increase the natural flow of money through the game for the benefit of all, especially grass roots football. Its like quantitative easing  but without the inflation, it wont affect the nation because those who aspire can achieve higher.

The more noise we fans make the more they will listen. The football League vote is laden towards the top and it will cost them nothing. 5 Leagues plus two regional feeders could see dreams fulfilled, enticing investors into the game.

Let us force the League and the Blue Square Premier around a table and do what is fair.  In the current climate the last thing we need is to perpetuate ‘Feudalism Football’ – because that is what it is when the few shut out the millions who try to play the game on every park and pitch throughout the land.

3 up 3 down from League 2 to the BSP would allow passage up and down the pyramid, which could put more of an incentive into lads wanting to play the game now we are in a depression with £400 a week and the chance of getting spotted even though you slipped through the net at 16.

A more affordable football experience, the chance to have a friendly beer with other fans.  That extra place, or two would really fire the imagination fuelled by ambition and local pride and allow people to dare to dream without the fear of failure. 2 up 2 down is not fair is it Mr Clegg and it is most certainly not  British.  Everybody deserves a second chance. 3 up and 3 down will give us a sporting one at least.

Conference Petition Breaks 1k – Come Aboard!

Come on  Alfreton,  Telford, Braintree,  Cambridge, Dartford, Ebbsfleet, FGR, Gateshead, Grimsby, Hereford, Hyde, Kidderminster, Luton, Macclesfield, Mansfield, Newport, Nuneaton, Southport,  Stockport, Tamworth, Woking and Wrexham fans, please join sign the petition for 3 promotion and 3 relegation places between the BSP and The League  here  – Red Passion, Luton Outlaws, Bulls News, BAFC + HSN, Stagsnet, Harriers On Line and We Imps  already pushing it

Silkmen, The Heed & Then The Honeymoon’s Over. Could Mansfield Era Revisit Reg?

Certainly the opening five, against Kidderminster Harriers, Cambridge United, Newport County, Macclesfield Town and Gateshead were never going to be easy, but the next five, against Ebbsfleet, Alfreton, Telford, Hyde and Tamworth are the ones upon which Holdsworth could and, rightly, should be judged.  It will be an interesting test as two wheeler-dealers – Holdsworth and King – go head-to-head on Saturday, to prove whose methods work best on the field.

Vic Erzantarz gives it to you straight and with both barrels as usual.

Lincoln City F.C. badge.png

I see the local paper is already painting a sympathetic picture again. Duffy now out, Holdsworth needing 2-3 more – and remember he had already got a threadbare squad, particularly in midfield, with Bore out. Indeed, the Sincil spin merchants do seem to be peddling faster than an Olympic cyclist, even though we are surely still on the first lap. The squad, now 26 (before the two injured and just mentioned and the three on loan plus the highest earner not even getting a look), had been envisaged as 21 to 23 when the £400k budget was first sent round the BSP media.  This excludes the manager and physiotherapist,  which adds close on 25% and, did not leave sufficient for an assistant, of course.

Lincoln City F.C. badge.png

So we need midfielders, yet even before Duffy’s injury, the threadbare budget had stretched to another forward first. OK, so it is on a non-contract basis, but once again the goalposts are being moved to suit. The non-contract deal is a curious one where we cover expenses unless the player plays, but it is still draining a club that the manager says “he will never bankrupt”. Perhaps not directly but it already appears on its knees with just 1943 for the first game of the season, on a Saturday too.  Barraclough (Trinity loan bound probably more for reinforcement justification than footballing reasons) and Connor are not getting a look-in and Vadaine looks to be falling down the pecking order too,  at a club that can ill-afford 6 forwards, as you can guess another is coming as Reg has now conveniently allowed the squad to drop down to 25.  Bob has said we will lose money this season remember, on a budgeted 2000 average gate, when everyone knows we need 3,000 yet still the merry-go-round is set to continue. You have to ask who benefits?

Lincoln City F.C. badge.png

The midfield need is perhaps the most perplexing. Loans aside, we have 10, of which two are injured (Platt and Bore).   This is the full dozen for those that have lost count – Luke Dayley, Adam Smith, Gary Mills, Peter Bore, Alan Power, Jake Sheridan, Nicky Nicolau, Conal Platt, Geoffrey Gouveia, Frazer Cobb, Karl Cunningham.  Youth does not look as if it is going to get too much of a chance does it, even though young Connor, who has signed a triumphant new deal can play wide or as an out and out striker.

Lincoln City F.C. badge.png

Given McCammon is back, who is for a double dose of jobs for me boys then, as perhaps Tyrone or another ex-Mansfield lad returns. But then Holdsworth’s tried and trusted are so hard to keep track of you can take your pick from any of these 58 – please feel free to email your Uncle Vic if we have missed any:-

Permanent

Gary Mills (Stevenage),  Tyrone Thompson (Torquay), Adam Smith (York), Rob Duffy (Newport),  Kyle Perry (Port Vale),  Jake Speight (Droylsden),  Alan Marriott (Rushden), Curtis Woodhouse (Rushden), Daryl Clare (Rushden), Craig Armstrong (Kidderminster), Luke Jones (Kidderminster), Louis Briscoe (Ilkeston),  Paul Heckingbottom (Bradford), Craig Dobson (free agent), Ollie Hotchkiss (Leeds), Michael Brough (Torquay), Jon Challinor (Cambridge), Andy Burgess (Luton), Luke Foster (Oxford), Neil Collett (Coventry), Jon Shaw (Rochdale), Paul Connor (Lincoln), Steve Foster (Blyth Spartans),  Dan Whatsize (Chesterfield),  Scott Garner (Leicester), Curtis Shaw (Ilkeston), Anthony Howell (Ilkeston), Gianluca Havern (free agent), Paul Mayo (Notts County), Neil MacKenzie (Notts County), Scott Gardner (Leeds), Ryan Williams (Weymouth),  Kyle Nix (Bradford), Tim Sandercombe (Notts County), Luke Graham (Kettering), Steven Istead (Ilkeston), Blair Sturrock (Torquay), Ed Eley (free agent), Chris Smith (Tamworth), Paul Stonehouse (Forest Green), Kevin Sandwith (Oxford), Ashley Cain (Coventry), Keigan Parker (Oldham), Luke Medley (free agent), Lee Gregory (free agent), Adam Murray (Oxford), Danny Mitchley (free agent), Mark Preece (Forest Green).

Lincoln City F.C. badge.png

One thing Holdsworth does seem to have remedied, is his penchant for changing the formation, as well as the faces, on a match-by-match basis. But then these are early days, he does love to counter the opposition by all accounts.  Many of you may feel I am not a Holdsworth fan. Far from it, can’t afford to be as an Imps fan, in a game where the ends have always justified the means behind the scenes.   Holdsworth’s honeymoon will be over come the Gateshead final whistle because Ebbsfleet, Alfreton, Telford, Hyde, Tamworth and Nuneaton will need to see at least a dozen points if we are to be out of the danger zone this season.  Because then we face Forest Green,  Luton, Mansfield, Wrexham and Stockport before  November is upon us.  The end of October is not a traditionally happy one for Lincoln City managers is it? Bet their will be no shortage of Cabbies willing to drive him for free if it all goes pear-shaped.

Lincoln City F.C. badge.png

You feel the fans and ‘supporters’ may have been placated and sidetracked, but the shouts for Holdsworth out, never far from the surface even now,  will bring it all home.  Holdsworth needs to deliver, not just for himself, but to stop the whole thing crashing down. Failure and the distrust for the Holding company will be a faux pas too far for Bob.   That could see revolutionary ramifications for the Imps, perhaps good, perhaps bad.  David Holdsworth meanwhile will be fine as he plays the PR game far better than the Imps. He will still have plenty of sympathy judging by the pauper pearls of wisdom we have seen in print.  Alas the Imps also wont have a Millionaire called Radford to buy them out of the manure. As we look at the road ahead, could the Mansfield nemesis on October 9, be his undoing or will the post honeymoon bonhomie be gone long before as those ‘supporters’ throw in the towel and vote with their feet?
