      More of the same against Arsenal on Monday night. A win with plenty of goals would be great.

      Wow is that Lincoln City’s actual logo?

      Yup, I noticed it during the match and had to check exactly what the f**k it was.

      They're named after a grotesque called the Lincoln imp that was, apparently, sent by the devil into Lincoln cathedral and was turned into stone.

      Each to their own I suppose, I'm a bit biased but I prefer the liver bird. Worshipping something devil related's not really my bag. It's all a bit manc.

      Gutted I missed this! had a few bevvies on the Wednesday so after a couple of hours sleep and a hungover day at work I'd nodded off just after Shaq's free kick. Saw clips of the goals on the bus to work earlier and couldn't believe it. Where the goals really that good or did the keeper have a part to play with some of them? Saw that he dropped a bit of a clanger for (I think?) Origi's goal

      Yeah a better keeper would have saved the shots from Origi and Grujic I reckon but not much he could have done about the others.

      Good going forwards but shaky defence and I'm still far from happy about Adrian as our #2 keeper. Please please stay fit all season Alisson

      This one I actually agree with you on Heimy.

      Far from convincing at times last night and the start he had to last season is looking more and more like a purple patch of form that was helped by such a solid backline that we had at the time as well.

      We seem a bit more open defensively these days and I do worry as well if we had to rely on Adrian for any lengthy spell.

      He did pull off a few great saves but was very shaky for crosses and was very poor with the ball at his feet.

      I get that as a number 2 he is fine but personally, and I've said this before, Karius is still a stronger keeper for me. I'd sooner play Kelleher though and build his experience.

      Bit like Mignolet in that respect, could pull off a worldie and then struggle with a lot of the basics. #2 is always an awkward position to fill (especially for us at the minute having Alisson) because whoever holds that position knows that they certainly won't be getting a chance to break into the first team unless there's an injury.

      I've always liked the idea of having an older, experienced head as the #2. I know Adrian is quite old but in terms of experience I don't think he'd ever played Champions League or International football prior to signing for us. Somebody in the twilight of their career, who has been there & done it in terms of the international & european stage and wouldn't be phased if he did have to be called up for an important game would suit us well I think

      Must remember the league cup isn't the league.Nearly always a very inexperienced back 4. Very often a disjointed team with new signings, players coming back from injury etc so the pressure on the keeper is very different from a league game. He will be under much more pressure and although Adrian could've done better in one two instances he did well enough in the overall game.

      It was a very plucky second half by Lincoln and Adrian saved us from a 7-4 scoreline.

      What now for Jones.The Boss described him as "an exceptional talent". He is that but is he ready for a regular place. It's finely balanced. Jones, as good as he is would need a run of games in the team to develop, to get used to the demands.It's totally different from catching the eye in the odd cup game.

      However there is a position, a gap if you like.The Ox hasn't quite done it, Keita looks the part but still a few doubts. Shaq is more of a back up player. Hendo can play in that attacking midfield role but it's more supportive that outright creative. Just wonder whether the boss will give Jones his head and take the chance.Maybe it's still a bit early but not by much. Has to happen sooner or later.

      I don't think there is any rush with Jones, give him minutes here and there and let him build up his experience and confidence over time, he has some superb midfielders to learn from now as well, we really do have a fantastic squad now.

      How did VVD do? Did he make any glaring mistakes to deserve punishment rotation for Saturday?

      I wouldn't have played him yesterday because 1) we won to the match :mad: and 2) we'd have to drop him for Arsenal if he screwed up last night. :f_whistle: :lmao:

      No, Virgil must never be dropped or even think he might be dropped, his name is preprinted on the teamsheets, that's the best strategy to ensure someone performs at their best. If you remove any fear then there is zero chance of a player, or any other employee, ever becoming complacent and they'll be super motivated to play at 100% of their ability.
      Great strategy, oh and you don't happen to be an employer do you?

      Obviously, most of the 1st team was punished for only winning 2-0 against chelsea.

      Now the replacements who pushed them will be left out for the next match as punishment for only winning 7-2.

      Virgil was in fact subbed at half time for poor performance. Klopp in his presser said something about stocks and thumbscrews on the team coach returning home. He is a proper disciplinarian.

      I understand the defenders in the U14 team will be brought in for training prior to Arsenal.

      Nonsense. Vrgil will be starting against Arsenal, but he'll be playing up front. In place of Mo Salah, who has been rightfully dropped for failing to score against Chelsea at the weekend

      Salah was actually dropped for not putting his hair in a man bun.
      VVD being upfront rectifies that oversight, and ensures we have the required different styles throughout the team.

      Mane is fine, because he has a parting shaved into his hair.

      Firmino's is starting to look a bit fluffy though, and it's time to bring Origi in because his hair is bleached, which makes him stand out, which makes him a better target man.

      Shaqiri did his part with real, fake hair. Or is that fake, real hair? I can never remember.

      Match got rather ragged in the final 15 minutes. Most of our guys probably haven't been on for 90 minutes in a while, and it showed.

      I liked Taki as MOTM. Curtis and Marko also good. Was sorry to see Harvey Elliott come off when Jota came on.

      Fabinho is not so much a lead center back, much more of a complement to a leader like Virgil. Rhys Williams, good experience for him tonight, but I don't expect to see him next week in the Cup match vs. Arsenal.

      Tsimikas was alright. I didn't think he was spectacular, but did alright. Neco was good in the first half and struggled more as he tired.

      Jota looks like he knows where the goal is. Promising. Nice goal from Shaq but he rather disappeared as the match went on. Not sure what to say about Divock anymore.

      Some good saves from Adrian.

      Now let's show Arsenal what our first team can do in Premier League play.

      I agree with most of your assessment, apart from MOM chose Curtis for that, but also was not that impressed with Tsimikas - hopefully that will change.
