An Interview With impsimps

An Interview With impsimps
Thank you to impsimps for answering these questions!

How long have you been following the Mighty Imps and what was your first game?

Been following them since 1959, 58 years, first game my dad took me to March 12th 1960. Beat Middlesborough 5-2.

What is your most memorable moment as an Imp? Good and Bad.

Worst moment, lots, but the very very worst being the first team to be relegated from the Football League in May 1987.

Best moment, the Fourth Division Title clincher v Doncaster Rovers April 1976, won 5-0, Percy Freeman's diving header at the Railway End never to be forgotten. (many this season of course, but I had to pick one!)

Since you have been following LCFC, what would your best eleven be?

Goalkeeper: Peter Grotier.

Back Four: Branfoot, Harbergham, Ellis and Waterfall.

Midfield: Woodyard, Dennis Booth and Linnecor.

Forwards: Freeman, Huckerby and Peter Graham.

Who is your all time favourite player?

All time favourite player, Percy Freeman, not the most skillful but the most entertaining.

What would you say is the best goal you have seen The Imps score?

Best goal seen scored, all of them, to pick one though, Dave Smiths winner v Palace 1977, was in line with his 25 yarder, keeper nowhere.

You've found 200k in cash under the bed and want to help out the Imps do you?

1. Buy a seat on the board.

2. Donate it to the club as long as it's spent on the playing budget.

3. Donate it to the club with no conditions.

4. Invest it into the youth setup.

5. Other

Give it to Danny Cowley as I know he will spend it wisely, like his own money. Checking under the bed now, lots of dust!

Stadium move, yes or no?

Stadium move, heart says stay, head says move. Need to generate income every day, not just on match days.

Which would you choose as a fan, lose 2 games out of 3 but beat Grimsby 5-0 or a 3 game winning streak not including Grimsby?

Three game winning streak please, had plenty this year.
