We have just got to hope that they do not look south for a replacement :(
Never keep up with the Joneses, drag them down to your level ...............it's cheaper.

Adam Murray would suit them.
He who would valiant be , 'gainst all disaster.
Let him in constancy follow the master.
There's no discouragement shall make him once relent
His first avowed intent, to be a Pilgrim.

I have a feeling at the moment that they would have to forfeit there new stadium to afford that to happen.
DN would make them bankrupt before letting our man go.

I think you are way off reality chubby ,  I suspect York would get away with making a goodwill payment amounting to peanuts ,

The thing in our favour is, if rumours are correct is CE is earmarked for Linscum when the Cowley's do depart.

I think CE will give what he's started a chance here first. He was loyal at Shaw Lane.I personally wouldnt go to York, as I think we are better geared up for promotion than they are.

I see a contract extension offer coming very shortly.
York is a club in crisis and has been for a few years now, they must be pilling there money into the new ground and not the team, but perhaps l am way off the mark.
Who knows, but one thing is for sure, managers don't last long there, a bit like fishy really.

I wouldn't say a club in crisis. I was in York last week talking to some blokes re York. Funding in place for ground, you should look at where they are it with it very impressive. Just didn't get off to a flyer.

It would cost them. And lets not forget DM would make them pay as he had to when we got him. But tbh i don't think CE will go anywhere this season. He has done okay but is yet to prove himself at this level

Managers contracts are of little value at this level as we found out with S&H .


York probably a better proposition than Lincoln ,  Cowley has took City a long way and a new manager will have an hard job to maintain the momentum .

Whereas York are in much the same position playing wise as Lincoln were pre Cowley , with potential to move up the leagues and with a new stadium in the pipeline they may well overshadow Lincoln in the future .

Craig is going nowhere !! He has started a project here and will want to finish it, that is the sort of character that he is. Now peeps please, no more idle speculation. Let's concentrate on the job in hand and that is gaining 6 points this Bank holiday weekend. UTP

Lincoln are upgrading their training ground and looking at building a new stadium near the university. They may finally be able to fulfill their "Championship 2020" dream or whatever it was called, just a few years late!
