Might just be me and in the grand scheme of things totally irrelevant.

But why would Yeovil take an extremely good 120 odd to Lincoln for a night game that probably 9/10 would of expected them to lose yet a few days later in a massive relegation game where they had a chance of winning, take just 76 .

As I say completely irrelevant but still slightly baffling .
Tonight was far far more important

Because Lincoln is a delightful city.

Actually quite a few made a weekend of it, our stadium announcer welcomed them and mentioned it pre game versus them.
So how's that work?
A few Yeovil fans contact Lincoln City to tell them they are staying the weekend ?
How bizarre.

I'll email Exeter in the morning, hopefully I'll get a name check in a few weeks !!

Friday night games are alot easier to make for the working man, than a Tuesday, only really need to book half a day off.

Big difference from a Friday night game in Lincoln to a Tuesday at Port Vale!

Some of the Yeovil fans I spoke to last night did indeed make a weekend of it by staying in Cleethorpes.
I wouldnt knock anyone for not making that journey yesterday, with a possible postponement thrown into the mix.

I've always thought we are such a good away day. Train station perfectly positioned with excellent links to pretty much everywhere. Also close and easy to get to from the M6. Then you have the choice of about 10 pubs within a couple minute walk from the ground. Also very rarely is there any trouble, and quite often you get 3 points gift wrapped at the end of the day, what's not to like.
I agree with most of that but that away stand is an accident waiting to happen. It might be ok for the average league 2 following but if it is full, as it was when we paid you a visit, it`s scary how little space there is at that single exit, on the stairs down and on the concourse. Your club seem more interested in security then they do on fan safety IMO with the concourse surrounded by high fences. Its not helped by your club`s insistance on frisking every fan going into the stand at the limited number of turnstiles in a confined space causing big queues and in some cases frayed tempers.

Can`t fault any of that, it really is too cramped when there is 2000 people for one steep, narrow exit.
