Mazzari useless.  :rolleyes:

:dontknow: The fans didn't like him, by many accounts the players didn't like him, he refused to learn English and they lost like 20 times in the league. He wasn't great, like. :lol:

Just because a manager struggles in one job, doesn't make them useless.

Fair enough. I can't speak for his record elsewhere.

To everyone associated with Lincoln City Football Club, this without doubt, the hardest decision of our lives that Nicky and I have had to make. We know that many people may not understand but we feel the least we can do is offer you an explanation.

The past three and a half years have been so unbelievably special. It has simply been a fairy tale for Nicky and I. The way you as a community have taken us in and looked after us and our families has been just incredible. For that, we will be forever grateful.

The moments we have shared together… Winning the National League in our first season, reaching the quarter finals of the FA Cup as a Non-League team, going to Wembley for the first time in the club’s history and winning the Checkatrade Trophy, reaching the play-offs in our first season back in the football league and winning League 2 last year have all been incredibly special and created memories that will stay with all of us forever.

More than the trophies it has been the special relationships that we have created with so many people at all levels of the football club. Clive Nates you are just a special, special man. You are honest and have real integrity. Along with the board you have provided us with unconditional support from day dot. It cannot be underestimated how lucky Lincoln City is to have these people guiding the football club.

To Liam Scully, Ian McCallum and the rest of the office staff you have worked tirelessly day in, day out to drive the business side of the club and we simply would not have achieved this without you.

We have just the best football department. A staff that is so relentlessly hard working and player centred, that have helped to create a culture and environment that has consistently allowed the players to perform at their very best. They are so selfless in their work and it has been an absolute pleasure to work with them every single day.

The players have been simply outstanding. The four different groups that we have worked with have all shared similar qualities - humility, determination, resilience and a relentless work ethic. At times, Nicky and I have received the plaudits but I can tell you, the success has been down to the players. In football, it is always the players.

Lastly and certainly to this football club, most importantly, you the supporters. The success that we have achieved would not have been possible without your unconditional support. Never underestimate your role in this success. You have driven our energy and stood side by side with us when we have needed you. Some of our fondest moments would have been sharing the successes with you on the terraces.

Building the football infrastructure has been so important to us. We genuinely believe that we are leaving the club from the Academy upwards in a really strong position to achieve long term success.

So why leave, you ask…?

Nicky and I have a burning ambition to challenge ourselves at the highest possible level. We don’t know if an opportunity as good as this one will come around again and we never want to live with regret.

It has been the greatest privileges for Nicky and I, to manage Lincoln City FC. We will forever hold this football club in our hearts and with Concord Rangers FC it will always be the first result that we look for. We will never ever forget the support we have had and know that we would not be in this fortunate position without all of you.

Much love,

Danny & Nicky Cowley UTI

Sad to see the Cowleys move, hope Lincoln can remain in League 1 and continue to thrive.

Hate Huddersfield too but that's a very good appointment by them, unfortunately.

Genuinely never heard of them until the weekend and it turns out they're beloved.

Couple of FA Cup runs, one to the quarters (beating Ipswich and Burnley) and turned a bottom-half Conference side into one which will comfortably consolidate and might push play-offs in League 1 in three and a half years, pretty impressive. Lincoln had been a Conference alsoran since about 2011 too.

Reports mounting that Marcelino is about to get sacked by Valencia. Abysmal decision, he's got them twice in a row in the CL and gave them their first trophy in ages.

He has antagonized ownership regarding transfer policy this preseason.

Done. Marcelino sacked, Celades appointed as new Valencia manager.

Wonder which team will snatch him up, he's one of the best Spanish managers right now, and he's only been held back by the fact that he always, always, ends up antagonizing people after 1-2 seasons at the clubs he's been.

I could see them going for a Lampard-esque appointment if they were to bin Emery. Arteta or Vieira would be a good bet. Emery will surely be given the season though

Emery has just 1 year left on his contract so they’ll evaluate his job towards the end of the season I’d imagine.

If he fails again to get Champions League he’ll be gone I reckon.

You’d imagine someone that got 3rd & won the Europa League at Chelsea would appeal to them considering that’s their current objectives.

He’d also sort their defence out.

Solskjaer sitting 4th in the table tied on points with everyone that isn't Liverpool/City and Lampard just put 5 past Wolves.

Give it a bit of time yeah? :lol:

Maybe leave it one more game before writing Lampard off, yeah?
