Trust needs to find its feet and quickly
Why are people so critical and negative about their teams? As soon as England have a glitch it is gleefully seized upon by the fans. Lincoln is the same with 15 posts on stories when we have won in friendlies, 45 on the two games we lost.
Yep, it's the English way isn't it? When somebody is flying and doing well, praise is scant, yet when they stuff up it's all verbal fire and brimstone.
We've noticed that here with Lincoln City. When they are doing well nobody bats an eyelid and the comments on our site resemble a wasteland.

Lose a couple though and the players/manager/board all come under fire. I guess it's just how we are as a nation.
What can we do to change the habit of a lifetime?
What is going on with the Trust? Three board members have resigned since Saturday. They are all new as well. Is it a case of if you don't go with the old guard way, you get pressured out of it?
It is my opinion that the Trust is in complete disarray.
It has lost its sense of direction and purpose. For me the Trust is becoming an irrelevance unless it has a complete overhaul.
I don't understand what it is anymore. Is it a critical friend or just a friend? The relationship has become blurred.
When it was formed to rescue the club over 10 years ago, it was supposed to be a critical friend, but I'm not sure whether that still remains the case.
In my opinion, it needs a very strong leader if it is to restore its reputation as the true voice of the fans.
Having attended Saturday's friendly as a neutral, I believe Boston will do well with Ricky Miller. I am a bit worried Lincoln will struggle if the full-backs continue to pump balls up to an isolated Nick Wright all game. What did you think to both sides?
Lincoln were not at their best, but having said that, it was one below par performance in what has been an encouraging pre-season.
They still managed to win which is always a good sign. It was a cracking goal too.
As for Boston, I was very impressed. Ricky Miller looks a real handful, but the left-back Netan Sansara really stood out.
He has got a good career ahead of him. I understand Boston quickly put him on a contract.
The key to Boston's hopes is keeping everyone fit.
Do you think it's all coming together nicely in time for the season to start? I can't remember being more optimistic prior to a season for a very long time. I follow some of the players on Twitter and the team spirit seems excellent. Is my excitement misplaced?
The spirit among the players is excellent.
The new lads who have come in have really added to the character of the squad.
The jokes and the banter remind me of Keith's era.
The pics of Danny Rowe asleep cracked me up.
It's that sort of spirit that can win you games. It's refreshing to see.
The players are bonding brilliantly, there are no cliques, no massive timers, just nice, honest, lads.
Do you think the pre-season has been a good one for the Imps? Does playing under-21 sides give us a real workout against sides which, physically, are not on a par with sides we will face in the league?
The Boston game was the ideal test before pre-season. It was competitive and the tackles were flying in. You want to be pushed.
I don't think playing under-21s replicates what you will face in the Skrill Premier.
It's pass, pass, pass whereas teams like Boston, Harrogate etc will come after you at a high tempo.
