Scotimp's Views (From Season Preview - Part 1 | Part 2):

"It is very easy to forget that Lincoln City sat 4th in the National League at the halfway point of last season. Their downward momentum from that exact point was breathtaking: only relegated sides Altrincham and Welling picked up fewer points over the second half of the season, and City picked up just 6 points from their last 10 games, the worst in the league. On that basis, they would appear prime candidates for relegation this time around, but things have changed dramatically at Sincil Bank. Lincoln have used the infusion of sustainable investment from South African director Clive Nates to secure the appointment of the much-admired management team of Danny and Nicky Cowley from Braintree Town. Add some very impressive close season signatures to that mix, and you have a Lincoln City that will present a very different proposition to the side that limped desperately to the end of last season. The trio of players signed from Cowley's former club Braintree will provide a new engine room for the side, whilst promising young striker Jonny Margetts will be keen to show Tranmere they were wrong to release him in the summer. Perennial promotion winner Nathan Arnold has joined from Grimsby, whilst striker Adam Marriott will be desperate to regain the form that made him Cambridge City's record goalscorer a couple of years ago. Manager Cowley has set his sights on a top ten finish, and is relishing the chance to apply his skills and methodology to a professional environment. But with the facilities and budget he now has at his disposal, he must surely be looking at a promotion challenge at the first time of asking.

Prediction: If he can do it with Braintree, he can certainly do it with Lincoln. Play-offs with a title challenge as an outside bet."

Scotimp's Views (From Season Preview - Part 1 | Part 2):

"Torquay were in a seemingly impossible position last autumn when Gulls legend Kevin Nicholson was appointed to the not-so-hot seat at Plainmoor: injuries to key players, no money for signings, rumours of staff (and previous manager Paul Cox) not being paid, and a very poor start to the season did not bode well. With just 17 points at the midway stage, not many outsiders would have put money on them avoiding the drop. Indeed, Nicholson endured several months of struggle before a surprise 4-1 win over Forest Green on Boxing Day kick-started a run of results that earned them another season in the National League with a game to spare. But can they stay there this season? Manager Nicholson will only have 17-19 players, and admits it will be tough with the scrapping of the emergency loan system. Retention of existing players was by no means certain throughout this summer due to the perennial lack of finance; former Imp Nathan Blissett has signed on for another year, but Shaun Harrad has gone to Wrexham. To compound matters, the long-awaited takeover by Gaming International collapsed this week when the preferred bidder was unable to secure the freehold of the ground: it would appear the viability of the acquisition rests upon building a new stadium away from Plainmoor. The collapse of the deal resulted in the immediate sale of captain Angus MacDonald to Barnsley to raise funds. Had the takeover gone ahead, this season could have seen Torquay start to emerge from a couple of very dark years; as things stand, there are more struggles ahead unless substantial investment can be secured. As chairman David Phillips says, they need an injection of cash, and haven't got time to waste.

Prediction: The bookies odds are totally wrong: another tough season ahead regardless of whether or not the elusive takeover takes place."
