Title: Klfc v Peterborough sports
Post by: Bornandbred on October 11, 2021, 07:08:19 AM
If ever the club need to pull together Saturday is a must..
With the return of gash & fryatt the potential banana skin is on the cards.
But from the keeper, defenders, and particularly the strong midfield contingent I see us
Scraping through by the odd goal. The only concern is how and who will play the forward position...
Expecting 1250 - 1500 crowd..... 🙏⚽👊

Think this is a massive game.    Progressing to the next round is vital for the Club’s finances.    To think a win Saturday could set up a home game with a Sunderland, Ipswich etc.  Is massive.

A big day for both SC and IC

Best option for the club would be an AWAY game with the likes of Sunderland 'cos with gate receipts shared, the income would be much more than a match at the Walks!

Even more limited options for IC this weekend - Walker loan spell has ended and Taylor is cup tied so basically the two who started this Saturday look nailed on certainties.  Might be scope for IC to give Gyasi a chance in place of Rowley who came off limping on Tuesday and the same again on Saturday, much as it is a 'must win' game if Rowley isn't 100% I wouldn't risk him

Have to disagree with you on that.   Say Kings Lynn drew Sunderland at The Walks.  100% guarantee of a live Game coverage.  Game at the SOL.  Not a chance of TV being interested in that.   Plus the sponsorship deals would be massive. Etc.   Not sure how many Mackems would turn out to watch Kings Lynn.

To be fair, your point about the Tv coverage is a fair one. I reckon though there'd still be at least 15,000-20,000 at Sunderland even for little old Lynn!!

Hopefully Fernandez, Rowley and McGavin all have permission to play. I would like to see all 3 on from the start. Rowley is a workhorse and McGavin is too good to be on the bench, plus he is pretty good at free kicks, re Eastleigh.
Not so sure its a must win game, yes financially it is well worth winning, but the 'must win' games are in the league. We play some really good football, just need to score and we will be ok.
I think the players will be relaxed about it not being a league game and can hopefully get a morale boasting win.

To my mind, the most important games of the season so far were at home to Wealdstone and Barnet. Given that we failed in both tests due to not taking chances, I see the PS match as vital.....a win will:

A/ Build interest in the town and boost attendance
B/ Hopefully be the start of a little run that will provide the finance for a new striker.


In the past, I personally have had the feeling that IC has been dismissive of Cup matches, preferring to concentrate on the league....... however, there isn't the money for new players without the cup run this time around, so one is essential to support the other.
Title: Re: Klfc v Peterborough sports
Post by: Bornandbred on October 12, 2021, 10:00:24 AM
Losing to a step 3 side, especially with ex players involved means more concentration needed not less. It is massive for confidence as well, too take this lightly would be carnage on every level.... And think of the revenue with potentially Sunderland and Co in the next round.....
I would and will expect blood /thunder and fingers crossed a win 🤞

Why would you say the money isn’t there KES ?   Do you think SC has already burnt through all of the 500k loans ?   Also if bringing a striker in was the difference between staying in the NL or being relegated to the NLN then would you not think that SC would dip once again into his own pocket to find that few grand extra ?

Don't think the loan is used up Mall, but nor should he look to use it all up.

Also don't think SC has personal monies to throw in any more.

When asked at the Fans Forum by Backie about money for a new striker, SC's reply was "depends on the crowds" or something similar. Difficult to know if that was a case of "you ask me this question and I will reply in this way" or whether it was a genuine appraisal of the situation.

However, huge ongoing expenses involved in being full time, providing accommodation etc.

My feeling is that a good cup run with a televised game is what is required to bring in a striker capable of 20-25 goals a season at NL level.

Mall, I am not sure anyone knows what proportion of the loans remain unspent but given that the previous promotions were secured with a fair degree of financial doping and I can't imagine 2020-21 or the current season's budget were set with a view to breaking even and with COVID I guess we have already spent a fair chunk and that is probably without lower than anticipated (in some quarters) crowds and the fact that repayments have already started on the bounce back loan.

At the recent fans forum, SC did say that all of the modelling and planning for the future was based on staying in the current division but whether that is worth yet more cash is really down to SC, personally I think we have already gambled more than is reasonable for the future of the club so I would accept that the budget is what it is and if we can't secure NL football with that then so be it.  SC said the Sport England loan repayments kick in in four years time - that is a hell of a long timeframe to maintain NL status and lets be honest are we unlikely to be able to do that without a massive cash injection from elsewhere so maybe we should start trying to live within our means sooner rather than later?

KES, you beat me to it and yes, there was an element that the question from Backie was a set up to allow SC to give the 'depends on crowds' response.  Certainly if the two games since the price reduction are anything to go by we won't see a new striker anytime soon

Post by: Mallard on October 12, 2021, 02:17:13 PM
When did the £500k loan actually kick in last season ?   My feeling was it was either around or after we decided to run with players who were playing for expenses or for very little financial  reward.  Plus I guess SC would have received the National League share out money and a decent fee for Carey.

If, on the other hand The £500k has already been allocated over this season.  Then the question comes where do the funds come from for next season and the season after. 

Kings Lynn, on Saturday had the 2nd lowest crowd attendance in the NL only kept of bottom by a cast adrift Dover.  Midweek Wrexham had their record NL crowd in attendance with over 9,000 turning up.  That shows the difference between clubs who get their PR bang on the money.

Ok we will never match the likes of Wrexham in terms of numbers. Then again we should be pulling in more than Boreham Wood and Wealdstone.    Even with admission costs greatly reduced at The Walks the crowds are still not matching our last season in NLN.  So in effect we have gone up a level and crowds have dropped off.

Good crowds at The Walks have always been dependent on a successful side...its chicken and egg...we need to score to get the results to get the crowds to get the money to get the striker to score the goals.......ps don't see the need for a rocking horse. :laughcry:

Well, if we don't defend well, there will only be one outcome........think we need the defence to be on top form (in fairness I think we are defending pretty well) and hope our attacking midfielders produce the goods

I am also hoping their step 3 defence will struggle against Gold.

Can see PS winning 3-1. They're a very good attacking team that are used to creating multiple chances every game, regardless of opposition. Confidence high infront of goal too. I know they're 2 levels below, but really they're basically a top 5 Step 2 side, and that's a side that can easily beat King's Lynn.

Full respect will be given to PS, but they won't have played anyone as good as Lynn at ball possession. Looking forward to seeing our new signing JB. The Lynn players will be fired up and should have enough quality to come out on top.

Post by: dillydilly on October 16, 2021, 02:07:23 PM
I obviously hope for the best, but frankly fear for the worst.  That lack of a goal scorer is the worry,  and something it sounds like PS don’t lack.  With four recent promotions, I would guess that the answer to the question of “how do they do it” might be they have continually ensured they have the quicker and cleverer attackers than any of their opponents ents thus far.  I do hope KES is right that they may not cope with Gold Omatayo, but I suspect they will, as he hasn’t worried any other teams so far !  Fingers crossed he or someone can find the back of the net.

Really pleased for the players, though they were very professional today, did what they needed to do. Gold certainly enjoyed his goal, I thought JB looked good.
I don't know the extent of Rowley's injury, certainly didn't look good, wishing him well and a speedy recovery.
Credit to PS and their fans, good luck to them for the rest of the season.
Is the 1st Round still North and South, if so it would rule out Ipswich. Anyway, we'll done to the team and management for today's performance.  Hopefully a home draw, or Sunderland away.

A good cup tie which Peterborough Sports more than played their part in and certainly hard to say there were two steps between the sides, probably won't be next season.

Squad looked very stretched, was Bowry injured or had Cheltenham not cleared him to play in the cup?  No update in the preview on how long Bird and Denton will be out but I don't think we can go to Torquay with Sundire as emergency left wing back.  On the positive front Clunan had another good game and Omotayo (and Linton when he came on) had better games so can hopefully both draw some confidence from yesterday when we return to league action.  Obviously the game was overshadowed by the injury to Joe Rowley who will be a huge loss, Barrett had some nice touches when he came on but I can't see how you can play him and McGavin in the same midfield, Coleman can't do the closing down for all of them. 

Good to get the income from the win but I think IC may be hoping that our 'big game' comes in the next round and he can then get back to trying to secure NL survival with the resources available to him

Thanks, the just read the report on the club site which I couldn't see earlier (cache issues or not posted?), report says Bird and Denton were rested - hell of a rest for them having not played since 11th September and 28th September respectively so would have thought one could have been on the bench if fit.  Also says Bowry should be fit for next week so that will help too.
