Thank you to Mansfield Town supporter Connor for answering these questions!

How Long Have You Supported Mansfield Town?

My first ever game was at Field Mill against Swansea in 2000, 17 years!

Last Season’s League Finish?

12th.

What Do You Think Of Your Manager?

He is one of the best lower league managers in the country, but he’s not likable at all personality wise.

Hopes/Expectations This Season?

Promotion.

One(s) To Watch?

Pearce in defence, MacDonald on the wing.

Top Seven Predictions?

Not in order: Swindon Town, Mansfield Town, Luton Town, Stevenage, Exeter City, Cambridge United and Coventry City.

Bottom Two Predictions?

Morecambe and Cheltenham Town.

Thoughts on Lincoln City?

Typical lower league club that is usually suffering, like Mansfield. Our ‘derby’ seems more friendly compared Chesterfield/County.

Score Prediction?

2-2.

Random Fact About Your Club?

Field Mill is the oldest professional football ground in the world.

What are your proudest and most embarrassing moments as a Mansfield Town Supporter?

Proudest was completely destroying Huddersfield Town 4-1 in front of 18k back in our play-off 2003/2004 season, most embarrassing was losing to Hayes & Yeading 4-0 in front of 200 people.

Do you have a Supporters Trust and what role do they play at the Club?

We do and they own shares in the club, they were very active during the Haslam era but fortunately we are currently incredibly well ran so not so much now.

Which was your favourite match involving Mansfield Town?

The Huddersfield match mentioned above, best Mansfield performance I have ever seen.

Which was your least favourite match involving Mansfield Town?

Probably the Hayes & Yeading match mentioned above.

Do any of you really actually like Steve Evans?

I certainly don’t, but it’s a result business, if he gets the results I am happy with him being our manager.

Thoughts on Angol so far?

Clearly talented, seems to play better under pressure, potentially he could make Mansfield a lot of money in the future.

What do you think you paid for Angol?

It was a low end six digit fee, £150,000 maybe.

Steve Evans is known for being a very divisive figure, and a brief trawl around Stagsnet reveals cracks appearing already in fans’ support of him. What is causing that?

To suggest cracks are revealing is not really the case, he’s actually made a few mistakes this season tactically but the fans are still 100% behind him.

Attendances so far do not suggest the fans are really convinced about the ‘favourites’ tag. Surely John Radford will be expecting more, if his substantial investment is to continue?

Attendances are slowly improving, as Lincoln fans should know – success brings better attendances and if we have a sustained period at the right end of the table we will be getting decent gates for this level.

A whole side of Field Mill has been boarded up for as long as I remember, are there any ground redevelopments in the offing?

Plans have been revealed in the past few weeks to turn it in to a terrace, I think if we get promoted this season it will be built.
