I think Akinde is a very good signing for them. Akinde & Green (with Rhead & Palmer as back-up) are 4 strikers with a proven goals record at this level.
We, on the other hand have taken a much bigger gamble by choosing strikers with far less goals scored at this level.
Hopefully our approach will pay off ....... but I don't think we are in a position to gloat just yet.
I don't think our 'gamble' is that massive, we signed a striker who scored 15 odd goals in league one last year and a young striker from the championship who has something to prove. Akinde is a good signing for Lincoln, and I am a little jealous but I won't be losing sleep over it. He's just a good plenty taker anyway
I just hope there's not a thread started everytime green or akinde score
