The Bells toll for the peeler, an Imp legend in the making. His mission to turn Sincil Bank into Sincil Swank.

Stefan Oakes has a gift from the Gods, which is why LOTI as a fellow immortal made him his first signing. ‘All change please, we will have flowing football from now on` decreed the Lord of The Imps. And English Oakes will make it so with a cultured left foot that could unlock the pearly gates and nutmeg 5 attendant vestal virgins. .

Each time he receives the ball it is like a matrix moment, where time stands still for a millisecond for us and all day for The Peeler. And then the playmaker peels another gem to the fleet of foot out wide, or the elegant one up front. When Frank or the Giant of the Imps has won the ball you see Oakes coming for it immediately to rally the counter. And it will rain glorious golden goals. With 8 assists already pre season, from both set pieces and open play, the virtuoso that is Stefan Oakes provides the tempo for Scoring Scoring Lincoln. At corners he is the sultan of swing. In the middle he is the passing prince of the Imps, with an entire set of golf clubs on the end of his left leg.

Stefan is an Imp legend in the making. His mission to turn Sincil Bank into Sincil Swank. Fortress Sincil will become an oasis of flowing football in a league of men and a world of discontents. When they were talking about renaming Sincil Bank, this lad will do it on his own.

  • I hope he can maintain his current level of form, so of the passing is as good as anything I have seen at Sincil Bank by a City player.

  • So many 10’s – this should get us promoted alone. However I notice on the OS stats (slightly more meaningful at this stage) that Oakes has never yet managed more than 31 League starts in a season. Is he injury-prone? If he continues that trend how will we manage without him for a third of the season…?
