    Might as well get this started, didn't think Corky should be the one to start it this season with United in Europa. That and who knows when I will get another opportunity.

    They got bailed out at this stage last year when some Eastern Euro club subbed on an ineligible player and in the last few minutes of the second leg with Celtic being down by more than 1 goal. I'd expect the Imps to have their shit together.

    Out of the Lincoln Red Imps Starting XI, only 5 players are full time footballers. The rest: 2 police officers, a customs officer, a laborer, a civil servant, and a shipping agent.

    I also saw somebody tweet that Lincoln Red Imps hadnt updated their twitter status yet because the social media manager was marking the Scottish captain in the game. A Scottish reporter also said that when he arrived at Gibraltar he was talking to the guy at the counter helping him book a cab and he told him that he hoped Lincoln Red Imps had a good game to which the guy at the counter replied me too, I play for them.

    How neat would it be if they got bounced? I'm going with pretty neat. It wouldn't be a good look for the coefficient though.

    We aren't talking about just here, you guys are alright in my book as far as TSB posters go. Just the worst in general. You guys are a distant 2nd to Chelsea in that regard though.
