No disgrace in returning with a point-and a signing.

I find following City’s exploits away on twitter rather less stressful that the live commentary on BBC Radio Lincolnshire. I should be grateful I know but it also has to be borne in mind I pay a fair old bit to watch football on tv and you can’t have it all on at once.

Judging by what people were saying last night, the Imps started off at a fair old rate of knots at Boreham Wood, got a goal and were then pegged back when Boreham Wood equalised and City never again looked like title chasers. They didn’t lose either and it would seem that our hosts were playing football that belied their lowly status so we should be thankful for small mercies that City held on for the point.

Much was also made of the fact that the Imps were supported by a following greater than the home side which struck me in two ways; People are really starting to get behind the team and the league cannot truly be said to be a bona fide division five when that happens.

Having said the above, really old fogies if any are still alive along with me may recall visits from Sheffield United in particular to Sincil Bank when the whole of the Sincil Bank Terrace was given over to away fans, such was their support, to howls of protest from us fans to which the club replied that they were going to take the money and we would have to lump it. Quite right.

Further good news, I keep waiting for the wheels to fall off but so far so good, City have secured the services on loan of Nathan Blissett from Bristol Rovers. That surname is more or less a guarantee of quality being newhew to Luther Blissett, can’t wait to see him.

This is further proof, if needed that Chris Moyses is not going to wait for a decline in form before strengthening the squad.
