Lincoln did their research and appointed the right manager(s).
Cambridge expected to go up as they did a huge amount of well documented prep. You're right of course it could be us. I just think our average age doesn't fit the profile of teams who go up and we need an awful lot of other ducks in a row. I also suspect we'll have our worst start for a long while before we settle down.
I'm puzzled as to why you think we'll have one of our worst starts for a long time when you consider the calibre of players we've signed? I know they'll need time to gel but I still can't work that one out Mike.

I'm not convinced Dunn's quite good enough if I'm honest.

Teams do need time to gel but we've got a lot of players who know each other or have played with each other before. That should help.

I'm optimistic that they'll settle in together very quickly because I get the feeling that Keates is recruiting on personality as well as talent etc. I reckon he is very good at reading people. Looking at the signings so far, he's building a whole package and avoiding egos etc. It's why I think he wouldn't go for Rhead.

Jennings,Wedgbury,Kelly, possibly Sinclair have played together at FGR.

Holroyd,Mackreth,Boden have played together at Macc.

I think given the huge turnover of players, Keates plan was to sign players who were familiar with each other to help settle in.
