"We've got good quality but we've got massive issues in terms of depth.I think you've only got to look at Saturday and I think we were the only team in the Football League who couldn't name a full bench. Obviously we had two 18-year-olds and a 19-year-old as part of those subs so we're certainly short on numbers. Any incomings that do happen between now and August 31 will have to be free. I'm talking about free transfers and free wages. Seriously that's where we're at. We're doing our best to convince clubs at a higher level that this will be a good environment for their players. We certainly can't offer them anything financially. We would like to think we can offer them a pathway to play, we're hoping some of the bigger clubs will see this as a good place to develop players. We're frightfully short - there's no hiding from that - I wake up three or four times a night worrying about it. There's no hiding place we're doing our very best. I congratulate the board for what they're doing because we haven't got any money."
The situation at Lincoln is not nearly as bad as Cowley would like you to believe, that being said Lincoln are pretty much maxed out revenue wise and have hit a bit of a ceiling (they require external funding like ourselves)
To be fair considering the absloute fortune he's had the past few years I think he's a bit out of order, plus they have recruited well this summer, you cannot go about signing players like Walker, Grant, etc then moan.
