It’s almost inevitable that at some point in the future, Ollie Palmer will score against us.
It’s one of the quirks of football that ex-players love a goal against their former employers. He’s not on our list, but a case point is Terry Hawkridge. His first league goal for Notts, indeed his only goal for them in a seven month period, was against the Imps.
All through time there’s former players who come back to haunt us as fans. Players who love the goal they score, others who do not. Terry wouldn’t celebrate his strike, but you can guarantee Ollie Palmer would.
Oh yes, he’d bloody love it.
We’re just as bad, taking the likes of Palmer and Green to Mansfield where they both scored. Even away from City it’s headline making, which United fans can forget Law’s backheel for Manchester City?
I’ve only gone back in my time as a fan for this article, so please no pulling me up on not having Tommy Tynan on the list, but I’ve come up with five players who seriously hacked me off when they bagged against the Imps, whether it was their attitude or just because it almost made me cry.
I’d say enjoy. You won’t.
