It's free, but they really appreciate you making a donation of £10 (as many Museum do). When you're in the queue, you'll see everyone else is paying.

Well worth a tenner, even if you're not a train spotter..

Iíll be very interested to see what team IC picks today.  We now have enough fluency to keep the hosts in their half, but our embarrassment of midfield riches means we canít play them all.  Apart from the regulars, Carey and Kelly have shown their real ability, and on Tuesday night Barrows and Smith were excellent.  Over to you IC - my only wish is that if we need change to go for a win you donít leave substitutions too late, because we have so much ability on the bench, whichever line-up you go for......  Good luck to all this afternoon....

Well no great surprise today with the result, though it sounds like Lynn gave a decent account of themselves.
Tough enough playing away to a full time side of 26 pros who have had a full week to prepare for what they see as the most important fixture over the last couple of weeks, but
Lynn with a squad of 16/17 and missing Fryatt through injury and Gash just returning from injury ( both as a result of the cup) only had 3 days off and two really tough encounters with Alfreton in the week.
You just can't have it all at this level with a small squad, however brilliant the coach or talented the players.
Just hope the 'player investment' in the cup run , really pays off now.
Lynn still sit third in the league and have a decent draw for the cup next week ..all to play for....onwards and upwards COYL !

yes quite agree; they put in the effort to try at least get a point; a good cup run; will be beneficial for us; not only  the f.a cup but also ,do not forget the F.a trophy run; Chester could possibly be a ripe cherry for us particular at home. Keeping our heads up to the encounter with Boston at Christmas could see us in a favourable position for a play off final and a win just like last season against warrington :scarf: :scarf: :cup2: :cup2:

Some will point to the FA cup matches as an excuse for the defeat today (tired legs, injuries etc.) but as the York manager said before the game and Culverhouse said afterwards: it's all  about what you do in the attacking third and the defensive third and York were better than Lynn in those areas today. Lynn will learn from this and will come back stronger. Still confident they'll make a play-off place which would be an extraordinary achievement for a first season at Step 2.

Good impartial BBC Radio York praised Lynn for the football they played with no sign of fatigue, there was no player investment in the cup? Lynn have played 3 tough games in 7 days and should be proud of a Draw, Win and a loss to a full time outfit. Any suggestion that the cup matches led to this defeat, is as daft as the idea of resting pre Alfreton. Well done Lynn for a good weeks work. Next time a player gets an knock in a League, or cup game, we should assume he should not have been there, AND WOULD NOT BE INJURED IF HE WAS NOT PLAYING FOOTBALL!!! . League and Cup, both vital to this club at the moment.......

Given that play-off places go all the way down to 7th, think we should realistically expect to be in them, given the start to the season. York this year seems like they might be comparable to Hereford in our league two years ago, with such a spending differential to turn the league into a race for second.

Back in B and B following game.
Good day out in York; visit to railway museum and good walk to and from ground
Enjoyable game ;  commitment from both teams. Shame we had to wait until 2.15pm before being let in the ground. Lynn had plenty of possession and York defended well and were pretty ruthless in taking their chances.Impressed with Nathan Fox and Ross Barrows second half.
Onwards to Leek !

Agreed Stan. Final third may have been compromised a little by Gash not being fully fit and the defensive third by Fryatt's injury...(think we may have played 3 recognised centre halves at the back if they had been available). But as you say a great learning experience

A good day out for the 300 linnets fans who made the long trip.
Not let in until 2.15. Poor facilitates  - the loos were like it was 50 years ago !
No bar and only basic expensive food etc.
As IC said after the game, we were up against a fulltime outfit. Onwards to the FA cup at Leek.
Good to see so many familiar linnets fans. COYL

If Gash wasn't fit he shouldn't have played. Pointless risking further injury for the sake of one game and the Lynn side that beat Alfreton on Tuesday were plenty good enough to take on York. It was Lynn's inability to create good opportunities in the final third that was the main problem and the goals came from crosses which should have been stopped so the problems at the back were largely caused by that so neither issue attributable to Gash who seemed fine or Fryatt who wouldn't have stopped the crosses either. Alex Street should have done better for their first goal.
Title: Re: York
Post by: KES80 on September 28, 2019, 10:07:11 PM
Well I believe you have seen the IC interview Stan. He said Gash wasn't fully fit but put in a tremendous effort and that the goals came from crosses where the forward got across their marker.......so to say Fryatt wouldn't have done any better seems a little bit unfair on the player.I assume you were at York and had a different view to IC  :dontknow:
Title: Re: York
Post by: Stan on September 29, 2019, 06:20:47 AM
Whether Gash's fitness or the absence of Fryatt made a significant difference is something that we cannot know for sure. What we can say for sure is that Lynn were very good in possession but not so good at reforming their shape on the transition. It was a very similar pattern to the Guiseley game in many respects. This is something that Culverhouse acknowledged in the interview.
Title: Re: York
Post by: macfleetwood1 on September 29, 2019, 08:58:50 AM
Lets not get to despondent, only our 2nd defeat this season, and I don't think we are punching above our weight, we are 3rd on merit, and there is no reason for us to think we will not be in the top half come the end of the season. Lets go to Leek and make it to the 4th qualifying round, and then who knows. If some of you want to watch York again (why should you?) they are 10 miles down the road at Buxton.  With reference to Gash, IMO he should not have played, it could have and may have made his injury worse.

Post by: Mallard on September 29, 2019, 11:23:22 AM
We are up there playing with the big boys.  IC keeps telling us we will get his bumps in the road.   Thatís ok and has to be expected.  Itís how we bounce back that counts.  We did it after Guiseley and Iím sure we will again after yesterday.

We are playing a brand of Football that is so enjoyable to watch but we will get picked off from time to time.  Small price to pay for the style we play.

It will be interesting to see how we face up when York come to us later in the season.
Title: Re: York
Post by: Stan on September 29, 2019, 02:01:37 PM
It might be a big price to play if it costs us points. In certain away matches Lynn need to be a bit smarter. Playing too open is a risk to Lynn's promotion hopes. In the same way that playing a full strength side in the FA Cup might be considered a risk to promotion hopes.
Title: Re: York

IC might well tinker with things as the season progresses but canít see him changing his MO on the way he wants to his team to play.

Agreed Mallard, we play some very attractive and entertaining football and don't sit back and wait for the other team to take the initiative. Attack is the best form of Defence.

In most instances I would agree with you Mike but if you listen to the York manager's interview after the game he argues the opposite of you: defence is the best form of attack and his side won 3-0!
Against the better sides away from home Lynn's open style of play isn't getting results and they've shipped a lot of goals.
From what I've seen, Lynn are technically a match for anyone in this league but they need a different strategy away from home, against the stronger sides, to convert that quality into points.

Post by: Mallard on September 30, 2019, 07:47:54 AM
Iím sure Stan we are gonna come unstuck at times on the Road.  IC is canny enough to adjust things as we go along. However I really canít see him ( nor would I want him to ) change the style he is playing.  We like to keep the ball but we also play with the option of hitting Gash early then playing off of him.  As IC has said numerous times that outlet gets up the field.

This season, to me is very much a learning process about the level we are at.  For IC and the squad.  I firmly believe we will get better as the season progresses. I also believe ( like you) we will make the top 7 ( play off places) but will continue to play a possession based game plan.

At no point have I suggested that Lynn should change their style of play. What I have suggested is that Lynn should have a plan B for the trickier away games.
This season is a learning process and Culverhouse is too smart not to make adjustments to the way Lynn set up in certain matches. I can guarantee that Culverhouse will change the way we set up and play in the trickier away games from now on. Winners adapt to changing circumstances and Culverhouse is a winner.
Title: Re: York
Post by: Mallard on September 30, 2019, 08:22:34 AM
Tinker adjust,  colour, color.   Think you are singing from the same hymn sheet as me.  I remember one of the play off games at The Walks last season Stan, when we went long got the opening 20/25 mins the opposition didnít know what had hit them. IC has taken on board the League game against the same opposition and switched it for the opening period.  Then we reverted back to our possession game.  Still think IC will stick with his principles but like you I also believe he will change for certain games or period of certain games.  I donít know if we can win ugly at the moment and donít see us having many 1-0 wins or 0-0 draws.
Title: Re: York
Post by: Stan on September 30, 2019, 08:41:21 AM
I think you might be referring to the Alvechurch match Mallard, where Lynn bypassed their midfield. Lynn often start on the front foot to try and get the early/ first goal to draw teams out. It's when that doesn't work that they sometimes appear to come unstuck.
Title: Re: York
Post by: Stan on September 30, 2019, 10:17:48 AM
Just looking at the highlights: defending against attacks from wide areas very poor by Lynn. Perhaps, you're right Mallard: I'm sure Fryatt would have had some impact back there.
Title: Re: York
Post by: Stan on September 30, 2019, 11:28:07 AM
Thoughts on the three York goals:

Goal 1 - Aaron Jones could have got tighter Ė too passive - he was covered by Hendo Ė why Hendo? Ė should have been Clunan who had earlier got drawn out left when he didnít need toĖ Hendo covered him Ė Alfie Payne and McCauley didnít pick up  - easy tap-in at the far post - communication between Payne and McCauley suspect.

Goal 2 - Alfie Payne doesnít track his man Ė back line are dawdling Ė communication between McCauley and Payne again suspect. Payne's man taps in.

Goal 3 - Third goal Ross Barrows gets his starting position all wrong giving York player an easy header.

Title: Re: York
Post by: Mallard on September 30, 2019, 03:23:05 PM
Agree with you on the goals Stan.

On the first Jones should have got a block in to stop that cross not just hung out a limp leg,  the defenders in the middle should have been touch tight instead of letting players have the freedom of the 6 yard box. 

The 2nd neither McAuley or Payne picked anyone up and guy ran through unopposed for a simple finish.

The 3rd Barrows seemed to get completely underneath the ball and the guy had a free jump and pinned him in the process.

We play great football but we have to also need to do the nasty part of the game, getting bodies in the way and going with and checking off the runners.

Can guess what IC will be working on in training this week. I wonder if goals 2 and 3 would have happened had Jarv been on the field.
Title: Re: York
Post by: dillydilly on September 30, 2019, 04:59:00 PM
We are playing the way that will mostly brings success.  Teams that try to ďwin uglyĒ donít win very often.  No need to alter style for Home or Away.  We have speed and guile in midfield, any 2 from 3 in central defence, and goal scoring front men.  Thatís all we need to make the play-offs, IMHO.  Weíll lose some, of course, but not many if we attack in numbers, and get 10 behind the ball (including the GK) to produce a ďforest of legsĒ. Ask Gash to be one of that 10, and get two quicker ones to be ready to counter.  Have faith in our on the ground style - we look too good for most and therefore capable of promotion....  If we mainly defend away, weíll lose more often....
