Cameronís absence is really not helping a threadbare squad,cope with the demands of National League Football. Very good player in the past for KLTFC, but I must say at this moment in time not helping the cause. I realise itís early in the season, but if he canít cope now how will he fare in December and January.

As per usual. I just can't understand why the Club does not want to engage with it's supporters more than it does.

The lack of news may be due to a confidentiality issue of a medical nature.

No statement from the Club may also be due to Cameron himself not wishing to make public his situation.

Is Cameron training with the team  :dontknow:

That could well be the true fact Mike.

I suppose the real issue is the lack of engagement with the supporters whatever the subject is.

Keep using this lack of engagement quote to dramatise situation, how about thinking things are kept of media for a reason whether personal or whatever like I said Iím sure when the times right we may well know Ö leave it to the professionals and you concentrate on getting behind lynn this weekend

If people don't want to know whats going on with a Club they support, that's entirely up to them.

If others want to engage with a Club that they put good money into, again that's up to them.

Each to their own opinion which they are entitled to have.

I don't think calling for more (any!) engagement by the club with it's fan base is dramatising the situation, more a statement of fact that neither of the owners since reformation have really wanted to have much to do with the fans, other than take their money.  As for King's situation, there is obviously a problem and whilst it wouldn't be helpful for anyone concerned to make it a part of the weekly press conference it is bound to be raised now and again based on how thin the squad is

Patience?  :laughcry:

I think Lynn supporters are the most patient supporters in the Country.

They've had a lot of practice!

Just seen the latest enjoyable and informative video release from the club, done by  IC......."Of course we are still without Kingy "

All the fans need and deserve is an update as to when he might be available.

I cannot understand why that is not possible.

There doesn't have to be any medical detail.....even if someone at the club just said " we still don't know but we hope to in x number of weeks" it would provide the required connection with the fans.

Quite frankly as many have intimated it is  p**s poor, to treat the fans in such a manner with so little info on a whole range of issues and expect them to retain their interest and connection with the club and then pay top dollar and get behind the club....fans have to be involved and feel part of things....if it wasn't for IC's updates, there would be next to nothing coming out. IC seems to be covering the role of Head of Communications and Media as well as all his other roles .......I hope he's not also being interviewed for the Commercial Director position.


Please don't ask for yet more patience, Mr Hill.... it's becoming a sad joke and people are drifting away and may not come back......why can't people at the club see this ?

Btw, I have one week of patience left re the online FOTL application.........if it's not available sometime next week, then I am no longer interested.....we are well into the season now

KES80 I will take you serious when you stop hiding behind a false name  and as for the online application forms there is no one more frustrated than me

Post by: Mallard on September 24, 2021, 03:35:17 PM
Malc I think people have been very patient awaiting this online application and payment format.  It must be into several weeks now.  Yet still nothing.  Maybe direct your aggression to those who are suppose to be making this happen for you, not the people who want to give you money.

Not that old chestnut again?

Malcolm, people have forum names for a number of reasons, and its up to them. I really don't think its just to hide their identity, as most people know who are behind the majority of the forum names.

In addition to that, if they post a "name", who's to say it is actually their real name? Do you think all the names you see on Facebook and Twitter are peoples real names?

If people wish to use forum names, its up to them. If people want to use a made up name, its up to them. If people want to use their real names, its up to them. Thats how the cookie crumbles on this forum and always has done.

To coin a phrase used by a previous Chairman................."If people don't like it, they know where the door is".

Regarding the on line application form. No doubt you have been trying and are also frustrated with it. I fully believe that. If the Club can't be arsed to get it sorted out when the Chairman of their Supporters Club has asked numerous times, it really is asking the question  if there any point to it all? It really shows what the powers that be really think of the FOTL's and the Clubs supporters in general.

Maybe there's an issue bigger than we think, regarding the firm that is paid to do such things on the website.   :dontknow:

That's different than what was said before. Has it now changed?

So, when its done, where are people supposed to go to be able to complete it (I.e. which website)?

If it is a Friends initiative, that makes the delay more confusing. What's the problem? It's a 5 minute job?

If you'd like me to arrange to get it done, please let me know. Obviously would need to know details of the site its going to be on, and all the log in details (which you could then change once the form is on line).

Godaddy or Wix site would probably be sufficient for what you need.

Low cost and relatively easy to do. You don't have to be a web designer or IT specialist to set one of those up. Good tutorials available.

Not a 5 minute job but can easily be done in a day. If you've now gone down this route instead of just putting a form on Clubs site, chances are at least one of your 40 members would be capable of doing it. As its not a major job, hopefully your efforts wil come to fruition very soon and you can tick that one off your list.

I'd have thought it would be beneficial to have the application form on the Club site anyway, even  if the fotls develop their own site. The Club will always get more traffic than a fotl's site.

I presume the Club will allow you to do that?  :dontknow:

When the Trust membership form was created for this site the majority of the time was spent setting up the PayPal side of things and the details they require.

It seems to me, from what has been said on here and the way things are panning out, that maybe the Club/Chairman have a luke warm response to the FOTL.

If and when a Commercial Director is appointed, one of the areas in his/her vast remit, is to encourage engagement with the fan base. Could it be then, that the Club will be launching new initiatives/supporters groups on a grander scale than the FOTL in the near future ?

It doesn't seem very easy going for MAH at the moment......Mr Hill, can I ask if you have checked with SC to check that there isn't a rival body being contemplated in the foreseeable........ would hate to think you are expending all this energy for what might turn out to be a lost cause.

Didn't he want to drop the Friends name and have it called Kings Lynn (Independent) Supporters Club, but the committee voted against it, with only one committee member for it.

Maybe that could be a factor in the Club not appearing to be interested in it. Having said that, Club doesn't appear to be interested in anything supporter related at the moment?
