Title: King's Lynn v Boreham Wood - Tuesday 13th
Post by: westlynnmike on October 11, 2020, 01:01:28 PM
Lynn take on Boreham Wood at Home on Tuesday evening. Boreham have Drawn 1 at Home and Lost their Away game so sit 3rd from bottom.

This is a chance for us to bounce back from a Thumping at Solihull and get back our confidence.

I am not sure about Chris Smith as a starting CH and would prefer Ross Barrows alongside MacAuley, Jones and Brown with someone sitting just in front (can we get Quigley back  :laughcry: :laughcry:).

Ryan Jarvis needs a rest and Clunan needs minutes as a starter.

Anyway, that's IC's job to manage and pick the team and formations - Will be watching on Live Stream so COYL

Be interesting to see how McAuley and Smith cole with the big unit that is Matt Rhead.  Won’t have to worry about getting done for pace but will know they have been in a battle.

For those of you that have bought streaming the service starts from 7.15- we have spent a lot with 3 cameras upgraded broadband, new gantry , faster laptops etc but sadly only 25 have bought it. Very likely we will only stream to season ticket holders going forward make our life much easier - wrexham sold 2,700 streams for their opening fixture we can’t make it worth while at these low numbers so if the numbers stay the way that they are please do not complain- we will just stream when is a big away following

Given our current chairman's "motivational" Tweet earlier today, I duly signed up for the stream tonight - has anyone else signed up as I haven't had any sort of confirmation from Insight4 that they processed the transaction?  I have sent an email to the club but just posting on here to see if anyone else had any experience.  Thanks

Has to be a reason why so few have signed for Streaming.

Maybe the Commercial Manager has pitched it too high at £12, though I guess SC would have signed off on it.   Those prices encourage people to illegal stream it. Or maybe watch it at the Napier/ Live n live for nothing.  There’s maybe a couple of grand lost there.

Is Wrexham ( fan owned club, for now) really a good example to gauge us against?  Or maybe there is are lessons to be gained from that.   Plus all the people ‘helping’ at the game tonight would be handing over their 12 quid, if they weren’t needed at The game tonight

Appreciate that there may be a few teething issues with all of the NL clubs having to find their own way in the world of streaming (why the NL haven't been working on a league wide system over the summer is a question for another day) so appreciate a bit of patience may be required. 

As for Mall's question about the £12 price point, personally I think it is a bit high but I guess the decision was would the club get 20% more paying customers at £10?  My guess is they might, if you discount season ticket holders who are getting the stream as part of their ticket that leaves the 'floating' fan and I think a number of them may be discouraged at paying more than £10 regularly, especially when you can watch a premier league match for £14.95

Admin, just seen your post, thanks.  Fingers crossed that this is the case but personally I would have liked a quick email saying 'thanks, you are registered for tonights match, the feed will start at 7.15pm' - is that too much to ask in this day and age?

I think given the COVID problems with Kettering, Boston United and Altrincham call-offs people will not be inclined to purchase a ticket until a few hours before the game.
Still not sure what happens if the game is called off - anyone seen anything?

Are Radio Norfolk broadcasting tonight live from The Walks ?  Might be another reason to
Put people of shelling out £12.  If they are then will they be able use Nick Bowler’s commentary.  It does help to have a pro doing the commentary rather than like some clubs who just give the mic to anyone.

this Link from KLTFC website:https://www.kltown.co.uk/2020/10/09/live-stream-for-boreham-wood/



This extract confuses me "We have now been informed by our streaming partners Insight4 that all emails to season ticket holders have successfully been sent out.

We urge that you check your spam/junk folder to find the email if it doesn’t automatically appear in your inbox, please note it has been sent by Insight4 however it shows King’s Lynn Town FC as the sender.

If you’re a season ticket holder and are yet to receive the email, please do contact us in good time, so we can rectify the issues."

I did not get "The emial to Season Ticket Holders" snd checked my Spam so I contacted Club and received the email answer I Posted earlier ref getting it on Tuesday.

People seemed to be having problems when trying to locate and enter the codes which had been sent to them earlier for the two away games.
For that reason I have paid once the stream is live, and gone straight through to the feed.
I will do the same this evening.

I’ve found the streaming to be good.  Haven’t used a code though - just pay up in the 10 mins before kick-off, then you’re straight in....        .....   And after last week, I think we need a CH, plus (essential) two nippy eels like Archer.  They win the matches, IMO.  Hope tonight that the midfield feed Southwell and Marriott - Dayle to run on to, and/or Adam, to feet.  Sailing over their heads gives them no chance...  Is Simon Power back ?
Dilly’s team vs Boreham Wood.....  Street; Jones,Barrows,McCauley/Smith, Brown; Richards; Carey,King, Kelly,Power; Southwell.  Subs Mair, McCauley/Smith, Clunan, Marriott, Barker/Hawkins...... (IMHO !!)

Not the result we wanted 2 sloppy goals caused by defensive errors and Lynn keep did what he could and took one for the team by giving the penalty away. He made some very good saves.
We are missing gash and defence needs working on. 2 teams on the trot with big players out playing us. I believe as the season go’s on we will turn it around not lost faith in the club it’s a very big step up and we just have to build the club up to match it we need to go full time no matter what but I know that won’t be for sometime.

For too long English pundits have gone on about size and strength.  ....  but it’s nipsters that the better teams have.  They were too quick for us all over the pitch.  We need a couple of nipsters.  And. Carey has to start....  But I do agree we need a CH... Solihull and BW have shown it’s so important to have slippery players who are quick over short distances.....We have some players who are quick over long distances, but the gaps aren’t there to run into !.....

It seemed to me that whilst Mair has proven himself to be a fantastic shot-stopper, his ability to command and organise his defence isn’t quite up to scratch at the minute, and no one else in the backline is stepping up to organise it in Pedro’s absence.

I think dropping pedro has unbalanced our defence as a whole, and I present not only the 8 goals conceded, but the general sense of being lost from the last two games as evidence for such.

Post by: Mallard on October 14, 2020, 08:09:14 AM
I think the gulf between the top of the National and where we played in NLN last season is plain to see.  We are coming up against seasoned, mostly full time campaigners and coming up way short. 

Saturday will be interesting as we come up against a side who are at our ‘level’.  Now if he getting a grubbing there then we have serious problems.

I fully expect IC’s team to evolve over the next 6/7 months and feel the squad will have a very different look about it come the end of the season.   

Maybe IC has been too loyal to certain players.  However he has given them a chance and some have been found wanting.

We are really missing the Gash man up front ,IMO he left out Jarvis king Burrows to save them for Saturday when we play a team that has come up from the same level as us and we will have a chance of a win,last night showed how far we are behind the top teams but we are only part timers in a league full of full time professionals.
Title: Re: King's Lynn v Boreham Wood - Tuesday 13th
Post by: KES80 on October 14, 2020, 08:43:43 AM
Very surprised at Mair being given the call so soon. Pedro has been fantastic over a number of years and he and the defence are close knit and know each others game inside out. We didn't get over run against Yeovil and were in the game v Maidenhead but have been a league behind v albeit stronger opposition in S and B W........and by stronger I mean pacier AND physically stronger (Hi Dilly).

Mair seems a real talent, but it will take time to gel with the back 4 and therefore not ideal coming into a new league.
Must be really tough for Pedro...... can't see him staying as a permanent number 2. I had thought Mair might get his first runout in the FACup in a couple of weeks time...... nothing against him of course...

Looking through the side, either keeper, the full backs, Jarv provided used sparingly, Carey, King and Power (when both fully fit), Marriott and Southwell look ok at this level so far. Time yet for a few others to grow into it...........we can't realistically expect to be able to go toe to toe with the top sides straight away.....we are a part time side up against seasoned full timers....ideally we need a centre back with League 2/NL experience who has a good couple of years left in him, who has the fitness levels and experience to organise things..........
Title: Re: King's Lynn v Boreham Wood - Tuesday 13th
Post by: TonyM on October 14, 2020, 08:43:58 AM
Interesting listening to IC on Radio Norfolk after the game last night and I would agree that we are not really looking to compete with Solihull or Boreham Wood, both of whom would expect to be pushing for play-offs this season.  What is of greater concern, particularly last night is that IC abandoned what has got us to this point, yes Boreham Wood were effective with their pressing game but we looked totally incapable of stringing more than a couple of passes together and so often elected to go long to a hard worked but ultimately ineffective Southwell. 

I know games are coming thick and fast and there has to be a rotation of the squad but we have to have more in midfield than we did last night, yes the back four look wobbly but with absolutely nothing in front of them to offer protection it was only a matter of time before the goals came.  IC has also taken to talking about 'men' in the opposition, I think this is partly to explain the physical presence of sides but also the 'men against boys' that last night so obviously was.  Unfortunately we already have a big squad compared to some sides in this league so maybe there is the realisation that some of the acquisitions during the off season didn't really plug the gaps that were already there from last year.

Just a quick note on the streaming - pretty good service with just a couple of short buffering episodes, not sure of the placement of the 2nd & 3rd cameras and some of the cutting between them in the first half didn't help but improved as the match went on.  SC proved to be a good 'colour' man and came across well imo, MH needs to understand he is on TV not radio and talk less but all in all a reasonable first effort, lets hope fans get behind it and keep paying for the service.

Game of opinions KES, for me King hasn't done much and I remain to be convinced that he wasn't just in the right place at the right time ie was he what we really needed?  Maybe more of a gap now Hendo has gone but still think we already had (and still have) options in that position.  I also struggle to see what Power adds to the side, teams at this level won't be scared by his pace which seems his biggest weapon, still don't think he is worth changing the shape and balance of the team for.  Carey we can agree on, one of the bright spots so far, always looks positive and hopefully can find more opportunities as the season progresses. 

As for the Mair vs Pedro debate, I think he has done well (in difficult circumstances) so far although I would accept we don't have a leader within the back four but I am not sure that situation is much different when Pedro has the gloves.
Title: Re: King's Lynn v Boreham Wood - Tuesday 13th
Post by: KES80 on October 14, 2020, 09:10:45 AM
Agree with much of that Tony.
I think King will prove his worth when he is fit, agree in part re Power.but I still think he will be a threat at this level......and if you were to write those two off, we only have a small number currently up to standard.
Lack of protection for the back line from midfield has been a concern before now...and currently is being really exposed.
Important we don't get caught betwixt and between with the system in place.......the team that got promoted is capable of being competitive at Weymouth......one in transition may or may not be.

I disagree B&G.    We have more experienced people within the club to conduct these sensitive interviews.   It’s one thing to interview a Manager after a convincing win where everyone is happy, joking, smiling.    Totally different when you have to get something worthwhile out of a Manager who Has just suffered his 2nd dicking in 72 hours.

I have noticed that spelling and grammar is, sometimes, not the best but I'm sure we can usually make sense of the occasional error. However, the correct spelling of a person's name is important, particularly to the person affected and their family/friends.

Hi KES !  In both defeats we were pulled apart by their slippery players.  We’ll never stop that sort with “strength” because our strongmen will be tackling thin air !  It often amuses me listening to commentators and their right-hand pros talking about “strength”, “holding” players, etc., because when you see the replay there was no contact at all !  It’s a cliche/trend to me!  “That Number 10 position” is up there as well !  If there WAS strength, it’s virtually always a foul!  Ijust think we have to get some nippy players quick, or we’ll struggle to win games at all.  Hoe I’m wrong !

However, the correct spelling of a person's name is important, particularly to the person affected and their family/friends.

Effected, not affected.

The person that misspelt the name has caused the affect, the person (or their family) who's name has been misspelt has been effected.

Affect is a verb, effect is a noun.
The person has been affected by an event...verb/doing word
The effect of his action was ........noun

Affect is usually a verb, and it means to impact or change. Effect is usually a noun, an effect is the result of a change.

There are certain situations that break the general usage rules for these words.

Yep the person was impacted (affected) by the  event (being called Burrows which made him for example get angry and bang his fist on the table (the effect of the initial impact )

Have to say IC seemed relatively calm in B A interview about the performance. Think it was wise to rest a few before Weymouth :laughcry:

So will Mair keep the jersey  for Weymouth Mall ?

Good question that KES. After shipping 8 in two games and being a young keeper I do wonder if he is a little shell shocked.  I think I’d go with Peds for this one. 

How about you ?
Title: Re: King's Lynn v Boreham Wood - Tuesday 13th
Post by: KES80 on October 14, 2020, 09:49:46 PM
Yes, I would also go for Peds for Weymouth. The keepers have had 2 matches each and I feel things should now revert back to the senior keeper. This seems a good opportunity to stop the rot and get at least another point on the board.
Although Weymouth have just signed a big tall striker "to give more options", Lynn will hopefully have some ball this time around and will have chance to play a game more familiar to the squad. Familiarity could win the day, so I would go for Peds. It's also the last game before the FA cup, so a natural break after this one, so important to get something from Weymouth if possible.

Mall - slippery and nippy are the same.  Take a look at the last 2 games, and you’ll see slippery nipsters running us ragged !  Yes, Peds for Saturday,.  Anyone noticed Maidenhead beat Wrexham Way ?  That was a good win for us , and should give the squad confidence again....

Would Norwich allow a Keeper (who I presume Norwich believe has a good future in the game) to join Lynn unless it was agreed he would play and not bench warm?

He ‘bench warmed’ the first two games.  Can’t see Neil Adams trying to dictate to IC what game time a  player is getting.

Thing is which keeper is most likely to be here long term and which one could be recalled during a season.
Which one is familiar with his defence ?
I just see it as a risky move effectively promoting Mair over Street.... and doing it so soon. I am sure Street wants to play every week.......if he ends up leaving mid season to do just that, we have a loanee in goal with Bazza as backup and if the loanee should get injured, recalled or called up by Scotland U21's then I guess Bazza is the man !

Post by: Mallard on October 15, 2020, 05:57:02 PM
If we didn’t have Mair then is the same not applicable to Street, if he was to get injured or suspended.?   

If Street goes I’m sure IC could cover the position.   

I don’t see that Street did too much wrong against, shall we say lesser opposition.  Mair made some outstanding saves in both his appearances.   

Just think after the battering the young lad has had in his two games he should be taken out of the fray.

However let’s not forget Bazza works with both in training and will give IC the benefit of his expertise on this specialist position

Guess we will know pretty soon who is considered number 1 and who is understudy.

Was IC's thinking that we were due to play two good Teams (in Solihull and Boreham Wood) that we were unlikely to win so put Mair in goal to gain experience and rest Pedro for lesser teams like Weymouth?
