You know the drill by now, don’t you? Seven questions we asked MK Dons fan Jonathan Harries (@harriesdon87).
1. You were billed as one of the preseason favourites for promotion, but should you have even been relegated in the first place? What went wrong last season?
I believe in you make your own luck. When you have a manager (Nielsen) who let’s a club legend leave to train with another rival League One club along with falling out with other players and fans.
The manager change should have happened sooner than it did. We then got a youth manager who “had a plan” that never came to fruition (Micchche) and unfortunately the confidence in the squad was never re-found and we went down with a whimper
2. How do you feel the season has started and what are your hopes going forward?
Start of the season unbeaten so far. I’d say combative football rather than free-flowing. Apart from last Saturday v Forest Green (credit to them btw) I’ve been content so far but it’s a long season.
3. Paul Tisdale – discuss
Was buzzing when I heard we were linked with Tis and when it was finally confirmed I believe the fans knew that Pete Winkleman was serious about the club. He knows the league he knows how to dig results out. Also knows what is needed and so far has made us hard to beat. Now the next step is up top.
4. Which player would you mark out as the real dangerman for city to keep an eye on this weekend?
Dangerman for me has to be Aneke without a doubt. Didn’t get move he desired but has come back in and found the net on his day the most talented player in League Two. Skill strength eye for a goal.
5. What are your honest perceptions of the Imps, as a club as well as on the field?
What Lincoln have achieved has been nothing short of amazing the Cowley brothers I have a lot of respect for. Said in pre season you’d be up there along with us Exeter and Notts County.
6. Who is your all-time MK hero and why?
Dean Lewington (pictured top) without a doubt. For one person to stay at one club through the highs and lows of lower league football is phenomenal with consistently good performance.
7. Finally, what can Lincoln fans expect to see this weekend, in terms of style and approach?
In terms of approach I’d expect us set up not to lose the first twenty minutes and take it from there still a work in progress but the foundations are being set.
