And I was just about to make an off-color remark about them being high on something until I did some Googling. "Common Linnet"!

Keep up the good work, KLR et al.
I'm probably the last person to find out the score. It is 11pm here (8 hours or so after the game ended). Very sorry to have missed the fun in person and to have missed following the game on line. But very happy for the team and the fans!
Congrats from the New Mexico contingent of Linnets (population 1)!

I was hoping he'd stay in England and sign for Gnawich, my other team.

Would happily be the ref or a lino, but it's a bit of a drive. I'm sure you can get it sorted. Good luck for a successful event for an important cause.

Was genuinely sorry to miss the game today. I'm in East Anglia at the moment but an elderly mum in hospital took precedence over an afternoon at The Walks. As always, Paul's videos are much appreciated.
Are we thinking blue shirts and white shorts in those photos?
Stuff like this is always interesting and gets me thinking about some of the "traditions" like blue and gold uniforms that we take for granted.
The funny thing is that I lent a hand to help translate the father-of-the-bride speech.
What Ken thinks means "We would like to welcome Pablo into our family from King's Lynn" actually translates as "We would like Pablo to play behind two attackers in a 4-4-1-2 formation for King's Lynn."
Oh well, congrats all the same to everyone concerned!

YES. That was DEFINITELY an interview.
Whether it was a Foul/PK/Send off for DOGSO is a much more interesting question....
It was a clever, penetrating pass into the box that gave the defence all sorts of problems.
It looks like a soft foul, but the keeper either had to stop the ball or stop the attacker from getting to the ball they'd pushed ahead.
He didn't know the Lynn attacker was going to have a heavy foot and (probably) put it too far ahead to turn it into the goal.
There wasn't much contact between the keeper and the attacker, but that's not especially relevant -- since the keeper didn't play the ball he really can't make any contact with the attacker and not risk being called for a foul.
Once the ref gives a foul in that situation, he really can't avoid the send off (that combination would be difficult to rationalize).
Sometimes those get called, sometimes they don't -- but it all started with the great pass into the box. That's what earned the PK as much as the foul by the keeper.
Isn't it great to have clips like this talk about (and multiple angles of the same incidents)?

Much obliged, Paul. Not a particularly nice night to either play or watch a game. But they are just as important to win -- and my hat goes off to the hardy souls who were there to cheer (and boo) the guys to another win.
Just saw this and said to myself, "What a thoughtful open letter from an owner to the fans of the team":
