Nigh on 5000 Lincoln City fans made Saturday for me. Watching them enjoy their day reminded me of all those that I have enjoyed as an Ipswich fan too – even if they were a while ago now.
Real football fans deserve the really good days and for every bad day we suffer, the sweeter the better days are. As I discussed with a few Lincoln fans after the game, those that suffered emotionally when their team dropped out of the Football League, you just have to hang in there and hope that you get rewarded again for the time and money spent on following your team. Saturday belonged to them, hopefully we’ll have good days again that will belong to us. I suspect much needs to happen though before we see those days….
