Title: Solihull moors at Home
Post by: Mallard on October 08, 2021, 12:21:08 PM
So how is this one going to play out ?  Solihull donít appear to have done much on the road thus far.

Iím going for a Lynn 3-1 victory in front of 1250 fans.

Time for a win at The Walks !
I am going for 2-0 Lynn with Gold Omotayo scoring a confidence boosting goal.

I think a win is on the cards, but I can't see us keeping a clean sheet.

2-1 to Lynn, with 1,100 through the gate. Nice weather, warm enough for us oldies, wives not making us go Christmas shopping yet.......we could even see a few more than that.

I would like to think the attendance would be a lot more than 1100 tomorrow, particularly given the weather forecast.

On the pitch, I just hope our luck turns in front of goal and we can put together a bit of a run, including a positive result next week in the cup.  No preview as yet from the club so still no injury updates but can't see that any of Tuesday evenings starters wouldn't keep their place if they are all fit.  Plenty of positives from the Barnet game to take into Saturday so hope we can get our first win at the Walks this season although like B&G, I think we might need to score at least twice to achieve that.

1-0 down in 15 minutes, 2-1 defeat. Just lack bite and can't see it changing at home.

I can't see The Moors bringing many more than 100, so I just added that to the 1000 regular, all weather, Lynn supporters.

I had a pint with a bloke at Wenns on Thursday evening who had come for the weekend. Take in all the sights and football on Saturday.  I imagine the weather will encourage a few.   With 4 points from 6 and the ticket prices reduced,  you should see a fair few this afternoon... great weather for it.

No big time footy this weekend, so we may get a few from both ends of the A47, Norwich, and Posh. Sorry to say i think we will drop more points today, not enough fire power. Lets shoot on site more!

Brave effort, but once again no cigar.
Wasn't there so not easy to comment on performance but from the reports, seems best efforts were from Clunan and Barrows.....a too familiar story.......just a little toothless upfront.

Have to say that we probably start as second favourites next Saturday to Peterborough Sports, just because their confidence is high and they are scoring for fun.

Seems like a striker in on loan may be the only option, if a cup run isn't forthcoming.

The thing is though if the club couldn't bring in a striker worth anything in the Summer what chance do they have of getting a good one in on loan, part way through the season?!
As I've said before, you dont get quality strikers at this level unless you splash some dosh or you are very, very lucky and uncover a hidden gem, and the lack of goals is going to cost Lynn BIG TIME this season.
You get stuff all for "brave efforts" I'm afraid and this is becoming a regular theme already.

Phil Brown sacked by Southend after todayís 4-0 home defeat.  Clubs donít mess about at this level.  Itís only the beginning of October and he is the 3rd one in this League to lose his job.

Yep, Lynn are mighty lucky that a few other teams have started so poorly, but that won't continue and Lynn need to pick it up sharpish, otherwise they will be in huge trouble within a couple of months

Well, after listing a number of positives from Tuesday evening, today's positive is limited to a single point - Joe Taylor making his debut and even that is tempered by how knackered he looked which just shows why he doesn't need to go back to Wroxham but will still take him a while to get up to NL speed.  He also gave the crowd a lift which was sorely needed.

Not sure what IC said to them before the game but I assume it wasn't 'let them have all the possession and when we get it just lump it up the field'.  I know Omotayo might come in for some stick but Tuesday we played to his strengths moving defenders around and playing diagional balls, today was the complete opposite where we just hit long, straight balls that were just meat and drink for the Solihull defenders.  Solihull were probably the poorest side we have seen at the Walks this season but we have to be prepared to play our football and whilst neither side deserved all three points we just didn't create enough.  One more negative - the officials had to be the worst (not biased as Ardley was just as upset as the Lynn bench at times) we have had this season

The stark facts are that we are 10 games in, so virtually a quarter of season gone and goals from forwards :

Morias 2
Omotayo 0
Linton.   1
Jackson 0

Everyone can see that's where the problem lies, but is there a solution ?

Jackson?

Post by: KES80 on October 09, 2021, 08:00:32 PM
Sorry, for Jackson read Walker.......as I was posting I was thinking of Simeon Jackson and just wondering whether he would have been a better bet as a pre season signing.

He appears to only have 2 goals from 7 for Chelmsford.

I wonder if Peterborough Sports have any suitable strikers ?

 :scarf:

91 out.  :(

I guess the 100 Moors  supporters that I thought would travel to watch the game was a bit optimistic.

So on to next Saturday with victory now becoming even more important that before. If Gash plays, you've got to say theres a very good chance that he'll score, meaning we'll need at least 2 for us to go into the hat for the next round. Even playing against a team from a lower level, will we still have trouble finding the net in what has probably now become a "must win" game?   :dontknow:

Should be a good one and I would think, weather permitting,  that the attendance will be bigger than today. I'll go for a 1500 (declared) gate.

Today is the first time this season I've left The Walks feeling deflated

Other weeks, we played well, but just couldn't convert our chances when we were on top.

Today, we huffed and puffed but created very little.

Yes Solihull are a decent team, but we just looked laboured today.

The handball/penalty incident today - I shouted as loud as everybody else that it was a penalty, but it will be interesting to see on the highlights if it was a deliberate handball in the area, or the ball was just smashed goalwards and it hit the players arm.

We can all blame the ref, but the lad I stood next to, we agreed on around 80 minutes that the ref had actually had a decent game.

We can't keep blaming officials for results - nobody can be "unlucky" for 40 games a season, same as nobody can be lucky all season - we need to take a look at ourselves.

I agree with the majority, we desperately need a striker who can score regularly - if Joe (or Joseph as the announcer called him) Taylor is the answer, then happy days.......if he isn't we need to act quickly.

Calls for IC to get the bullet are ludicrous, he's the best thing that has happened to Lynn in years and while nobody is untouchable, to give him the boot would be daft

Next Saturday vs Peterborough Sports, I think, is going to be horrible.......I'd take the ****tiest, scrappiest worst game of football ever 1-0 victory at this precise moment in time!!

Very deflating result on a glorious afternoon. On what felt like a day of promise and hope we were again ending with ďif only we had a reqonised strikerĒ

All ten of the bottom teams in NL, apart from Barnet who won, lost yesterday.

Of these ten, only 4 have a better GD.

Think we have a goalkeeper that does not come for crosses and a Gold that is Tin
