Title: Nantwich FA Cup
Post by: Mallard on October 15, 2019, 08:22:47 PM
Big day Saturday.  Lynn have a few injury issues so we wonít be at full strength.  On the other hand Nantwich suffered a home defeat on Saturday against lowly Ratcliffe.

Will we have a new loan signing in for Saturday or go with what we have ?

Iím going for a 2-2 and a replay at The Walks

I think it's a massive task to fjnd an available defender of high enough standard that is A) up for a move and B) 1 that has not already played in the fa cup for another team meaning they'd be cup tied anyway.
We shall see though...
Tricky away tie I'd be happy with a replay next week.

Even at full strength this is a tough fixture. It will come down to whoever wants it more.

Needs to be someone who would fit in with the squad.
May be prudent to await the result of Fryatt's scan......if he is short term a loanee would make most sense...if he is out for longer, it may change the requirement.

Post by: Mallard on October 16, 2019, 09:06:01 AM
Iím sure with the contacts IC and the Club have with the likes of Norwich and Peterborough something or someone will fit the bill.  If not Ross Barrows did a decent stand in job for us last Saturday. Canít see Ryan Fryatt being risked.
 
Is there any update on Chris Smith ?

According to the Lynn News he is likely out for up to 2 months

Looking forward to the game on Saturday. Hopefully a place in the first round draw achieved ( Draw or Win!) and no injuries, bookings or dismissals. A game not to take lightly. Some visitors to Nantwich in 1644 had a Cavalier attitude and came away with a defeat! The Northern Premier League are keen to have representatives in the First Round with Nantwich and Whitby both having their scheduled games last night postponed in preparation for Saturday's cup games!
The Nantwich FC website is keen to remind readers of the score last time Lynn visited there! A performance like last Saturday by our team is what is needed.
COME ON YOU LINNETS!

As a matter of interest what was the Lynn team that day beaten 5-1 ?

As a matter of interest what was the Lynn team that day beaten 5-1 ?
"King's Lynn Town's interest in cup competitions ended when they were beaten by the better team at Nantwich.
It was a score that flattered the home side with Alex Street not forced into a great deal of action, it was just that when Nantwich had the opportunities, invariably as breakaways, they made the most of them.
Defensive errors were Lynn's undoing as the clinical finishing of The Dabbers was decisive and the skills and speed of former Northern Ireland international Steve Jones caused problems for the Lynn defence. Jones, now 39 and with his 18th club, opened the scoring in the eighth minute following a mistake by Kern Miller.
Liam Shotton put the Dabbers two up on the hour after another defensive slip had allowed Darren Thornton's run and cross to create the opportunity.
Sam Gaughran's goal, following Michael Clunan's free kick, brought the score to 2-1 and gave a glimmer of hope but two minutes later Lynn were two adrift again when Lewis Short took advantage of Linnets' missing defence.
It was the first of three goals in a five minute spell.
Shotten added his second and Nantwich's fourth with a simple goal and then Ryan Fryatt was red carded for a trip on Chris Smith which resulted in Liam Shotton completing his hat-trick from the penalty spot.
Nantwich: Burynski, White, Thornton, Moran, Bailey, Osbourne (Hancock), Jones (Gordon), Hall, Shotton, Bell, Short. Subs: Hancock, Gordon, C Smith, Bourne, T Smith. Booked: Osbourne. Scorers: Jones, Shotton 3 (1 pen), Short
Lynn: Street, R Fryatt, Yong, Miller (Bird h/t), Gaughran, Smith, Clunan, Hurst, Hilliard (Edge), Stevenson, Friend (Zielonka). Unused subs:  L Fryatt, Pearson. Scorer: Gaughran.
Sent off: R Fryatt.
Attendance: 329"

Under what rulings can Nantwich have a game postponed due to an FA Cup match 4days later??

 We donít need another Central defender.  Loanees block games for regulars.  Ok, we haveFryatt and Smith injured (real pity, in both cases), but we have Barrows, Jones, and McCauley who all look comfortable there...  Barrows was superb last week.  Still only need 2 against Nantwich, though all 3 should be in the team, Jones or Barrows at Right back...But we must try to win this, to add to the building of this excellent season.....
Title: Re: Nantwich FA Cup

Have to disagree, Iíd say we need at least one defender in, as our bench is all midfielders, and a goalkeeper/coach. When Smith got injured, your right that Barrows was able to move across. But if we get another injury to our back four, who then? At least a short term loan, if only for cover is necessary, unless thereís a defender in the reserves who can step up.
Title: Re: Nantwich FA Cup
Post by: KES80 on October 16, 2019, 08:33:11 PM
Think Hawks should return this month.
Do we know when Ryan Fryatt 's scan is/was ?
I have a feeling that dilly might be right in that Lynn will play Barrows again as central defender.
If a central defender was coming in for the Cup game and with training being Tuesdays and Thursdays,(?) I would have thought you would probably want him to have joined the group early in the week
Title: Re: Nantwich FA Cup

Good luck to Lynn on Saturday although I think it will be a draw with us winning the replay. One of my colleagues told me the following - "As Bury won't be in the first round the last team drawn out gets a bye into the second round. The club that receives the bye will also be awarded the £36,000 prize money for the first-round winner". Is this correct?

Excited for the Club and the result for Saturday.  Going to watch a local game but will check in on updates at half time.  Think it will be a tight un.  I guess if there are any new additions today is when we will know.
Title: Re: Nantwich FA Cup
Post by: Stan on October 17, 2019, 08:18:45 AM
It's such a big game with a lot at stake for the club. If they win and get a money spinning draw in round 1, their decision to play their strongest available starting 11 in earlier rounds will be entirely vindicated. It's good to see everyone now getting behind this cup run.

Reposting this as I am still wondering how they can postpone - is it because Lynn have not got a mid-week game? Would Lynn have to have been consulted as a matter of courtesy?

I agree. I also seem to recall the NPL gaining a potential advantage in the play offs last season. Lynn should investigate this.

In todayís EDP it says things with Fryatt not so bad and he should be back in contention in a couple of weeks.

Also says despite tapping up Norwich, Ipswich, Peterborough and Northampton there is no new Central defender coming in at the moment.  Nearly had an ex Man Utd Academy player but he didnít fancy the travelling.

Itís sad to see us go out.  So near yet so far.  Unusual for our top two to draw a blank.   Just hope When the draw is made on Monday night ( live at 7pm on BBC 2)I hope  itís not a big club at home we would have got.

This defeat doesnít define our season.  When you fall off the horse itís straight back on again and off to Kiddie for a point or 3.

Shame to go out at this stage....squad have done brilliantly up to this point in the season.....I feel sure that with a fully fit squad they would have come away with something....just such a big ask on a small squad.
Great nosh tonight by the way..always enjoy the food most eating alone..we must do it again sometime.. obviously a difficult choice between Farmers Pie, Duck and my preferred dish... kept flitting between the three, not sure why......the indecision made me a bit Grissly to be honest...."Jesus", I said to myself, luckily a calming Rose was available on the wine list, so I turned down a Teacher's and  everything seemed to return to normal.

Well, that "certain person" only asked a question. It's the reaction and/or lack of it that has fanned the flames. Still don't know what the Forum's policy is regarding individual posters with a dual identity. No one has defended the idea of one poster with two or more identities and the forum don't seem to care either way.

This always looked a tough fixture, especially after all the mental energy needed in the big game the previous week against Chester. It's no coincidence that Chester also appeared to struggle against bottom of the table Blyth.
I hope there aren't too many woe is me comments if Nantwich draw a big club. They deserve to be in the first round and good luck to them.
