Linnets' Forum / Re: Buster on low gates

Getting back to the initial issue raised which appears to be lack of cash coming into club.

Over last 2 weeks I've been to Lynn v FCUM (1440) & Camb Utd v Salisbury (3300)

Not withstanding the huge gulf in quality between the games, the most striking difference was the apparent way the clubs go about utilising what they have.

At 1.30 the previous Saturday, at least two local pubs were packed out with a mixture of Lynn but mainly FCUM supporters, having turned up at ground to be told that facilities weren't open (this was from them) now this is not a unique position, it seems to happen quite a lot.

Contrast that with Camb Utd, at 12.45 the club bar was busy and by 1.15 was packed. Football was on big screen, beer was reasonably priced and hot food was being dished out at a regular rate, OK I had to pay 1.50 to get in as a non member but deemed it worth it, and was clear that two pubs close to ground we're not full with football fans, they were also very keen to remind people that the bar would be open after the game and into evening with entertainment (I'm not suggesting that's suitable for Lynn) and would be open all day Sunday.

Allied to this was the community element, there had been a kids football tournament played in the morning and during 1st half on park by ground, with what appeared to be final on pitch at half time, these kids all had a parent with then, had a very passionate community officer looking after them, now I'm sure these parents got in free but a significant number were buying drinks and food for themselves and kids. You could also see the absolute joy these kids had at being there.

It was clear that they see themselves very much at the heart of the football supporting community in Cambridge, whereas I'm not sure Lynn see that as a requirement.

Now these are only 2 small things but maximising the facilities and community to the full on match days must be as much a priority as the need to attract another 150-200 people in.

And scored twice today as Lowestoft went top, what an asset he would have been for us at this level

Have to agree with that, like I said PR nous....

And just changing tact, great to see the Purple nosed one not getting his own way for once, that must come as a shock to the bully boy

Totally agree with Jack with this one. The way the club have treated last season squad is shocking. Some people seem to have very short memories, wasn't it that most of last season squad were part of the Champion winning squad of a few seasons ago, the same level which we find ourselves now yet not good enough all of a sudden. Wasnt it these guys that went for weeks on end without pay yet stuck with the club whilst others like Frewy jumped ship. Their loyalty has been repaid with a right royal middle finger.....shocking.

IMHO the same board the brought us to the brink of great things have taken us back years, bringing in a novice of a manager that has wripped the heart and soul out of the club, that shows utter comtempt for last years players that is agrogant beyond comprehension is depressing.

An example of how our club is now being run: We let our leading goal scorer leave whilst our novice manager registers himself because we're short of numbers. Maybe Jack was asking to much money........Oh hang on a mo we will never know because he was never called.

Well said Bristol.

Is this the same novice manager that led a team on 1/10th of our budget to 4 places higher than us in the league.

As for ripping the heart and soul of our club, that's not down to Heggs, that was done by the ineffective management, tactics, poor performances on the pitch and the way the club was run last season.

In retrospect, I do believe that out of courtesy a phone call could have been made even if it was to say that a clean sweep of the club was being made, but if the budget allows for one top quality striker and the choice is Sheldon or Jack then it is a no contest and as unpalatable for those who believe Jack was Mr King's Lynn it is Sheldon. That is no to deride the contribution Jack has made to our club as it has been an excellent one over a large number of years - but sometimes a club just has to move on.


I would also add that whoever from the club is responsible for the continued inane response to every bit of criticism levelled at it is just making matters worse, it causes just even more criticisms and abuse to be levelled at it, either get someone with PR nous in to help make more appropriate statements or just let it ride

Perhaps the fact that we will not be paying over inflated wages for average players might be a clue.

In the BBC article Frewy makes reference to being played out of position for the majority of the time he was with us

Having signed Thomas & Graham on loan to the end of the season, I suspect neither can be released back to their relevant clubs.

So where does that leave us? Of all the above mentioned names Crane is the most obvious, but there again would Hoyte be prepared to come here and just be a squad player competing with Thomas and Graham (I think Peters has to play)?

Or do we look to sign him now and loan him out for the rest of the season on the understanding he will be major part of next season's squad?

Or do we believe that the current set up fine and don't chase his signature?

Why not, we were by a defender we signed in the summer and caved in after he rejected offer
