Chambers: Lincoln Will Find We're a Different Team
Friday, 24th Jan 2020 17:18
Skipper Luke Chambers believes Lincoln will face a different Town side from the one which lost 5-3 at Sincil Bank just under a month ago.
That defeat was nadir of Town’s November and December downturn but after a post-match discussion involving players and staff after the match the Blues have got back on track with two wins and two draws in their four league games in 2020 so far.
“There are ways to lose games of football but that wasn’t one of them. It wasn’t anywhere near acceptable all over the pitch,” Chambers writes in his column for Saturday’s matchday programme.
“We had a long chat in the dressing room after the final whistle that day. There comes a time in every season when you lose a game and things need to be said.
“They were said and we have seen a reaction. We took our medicine and we have responded. Our performances have certainly improved since that defeat.
“I think we were a bit hesitant in the way we were playing when we had that disappointing run. We have put that aside now since the turn of the year and we’re really giving it a go to win games and force the issue.
“I think Lincoln will find we are a different team from the one they played a month back. A lot has happened in those four weeks. We certainly look far more of a threat now.
“We’re in a good position but we have 18 massive games left. People have said that when teams play Ipswich, it’s their cup final, well let’s flip that on its head and say Ipswich Town have 18 cup finals left.”

On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.

As if going to an FA Cup semi-final was not stressful enough, I had added stress. I travelled on a Supporters Club coach, on board many families, including my father and my wife
