Barrow have faith in City’s strike force even if we don’t.
That’s a bit tongue in cheek as I think we do have faith in our strike force but dearly wish it would strike up again.
Barrow, having put paid to the Imps promotion ambitions with a swoop for Liam Hearn have now turned their attention to Matt Rhead and tabled a five figure bid for him on Saturday morning prior to the Forest Green Rovers game. Hearn’s loan was a disaster for him and the bid has been rejected but you do wonder what sort of an effect all this speculation and subterfuge has on the players. Chris Moyses, decent cove that he is felt duty bound to inform the player before the game. I’m certainly not laying responsibility for yet another loss at Barrows door but it all must be unsettling for the players.
Just looking at the fixture list and there are no midweek games to keep the players occupied. It’s been such a mild winter there have been no postponements and City have been going about the various cups with their customary total lack of success.
With some tough games coming up I seem to have lost the anticipation that was starting to build up as City swept all before them earlier in the season. Those pictures put out of Graham Taylors all conquering side playing at a packed Sincil Bank on the sad death of Percy Freeman merely seemed to deepen my sense of a football following life somewhat passing us Imps by.
