Title: Boreham Wood
Post by: KES80 on October 26, 2021, 09:54:23 PM
I am just amazed.........is it ever going to dawn

Keep doing the same things every game and in this league you get the same result.

Teams around Lynn are improving as the season develops.....have Lynn honestly improved since Southend ?

A familiar one nil defeat.......sloppy goal given away early doors, a common theme and toothless upfront....common theme.

There had to be a night when the other sides got wins...now it has happened and we are starting to look in real trouble. League goals from forwards totals 3.
Linton 1 Morias 2 Omotayo 0. Doesn't matter what league you are in, if you can't score in 90 minutes you will get relegated....... it's actually becoming rather painful being a Lynn fan.

The Chairman has a number of serious decisions to make.......next up Weymouth !

1160 there tonight.

Taking everything into consideration,  that's not a bad turnout for a Tuesdsy evening.

Hard to argue with any of that, just listened to Chris Lakey's thoughts on Facebook and again not much to disagree with, other than his view that Morias will be important for us (imo wants to drop way, way too deep and could easily have earned another straight red had a wild lash out made contact) can't fault the effort of the players but toothless upfront is probably being kind.  I thought Davis had a good debut and found space and looked positive but we don't look like creating anywhere near enough and probably the best chance of the night falls to Aaron Jones, rather than a forward, and he couldn't convert it.

I would say for a Tuesday evening when we are not doing well that is an excellent gate.If that is what we can get on our current form just imagine how many a win would add to the gate? :scarf: :scarf:

I still believe we can’t expect to create enough chances if we continue to have 8 players including the GK who are there either to defend, stodgier, or “sit” (a complete waste of a player).  Strikers alone don’t ore goals.  We need creative attacking midfielders.  We have them - not world- beaters, but the best we have, and never play them, or at least no more tha one.  It has to change.  We see remarks on the live texts that “we’re not creating much in the attacking area”.  Well, of course we’re not !  Bad night !  Apols for the cynicism.

Whoever coined the phrase the best form of defence is attack should be quoted before every game,get those nipsters in there! If
 we are going behind playing a defensive game then what do we have to lose by being the aggressor and attacking? These teams have done their homework and unravel us like a ball of wool,have to start being a bit like Rocky,starting out all defensive,and then all of a sudden IC shouts "switch King's Lynn" and they turn into an attacking machine!

Have to agree with KES there are some strong decisions for the Chairman to make. 

The team is lacking goals and after all that’s what wins games.   Will SC just sit back and allow us to continue to struggle at the wrong end of the table or bite the bullet and find some additional funds from somewhere.?

The question is where

1.  Rely on a decent cup run and hope we get through round 1 and get a plum draw in the next round.

2.  Bring in outside help ( I hate to use the word ‘investment’)

3.  Find the money from his own asset base.

4.  Hope the new Commercial Director hits the ground running and comes up with some toe curling ideas to generate a lot of extra income.

I think before the chairman wastes anymore money someone  must get through to the manager that Gold should not be the first name on the team sheet every game. He didn't win one aerial battle last nigh he brings nothing to the team..

Funny how opinions vary GS several of us near me thought he had a lot better game last night Dribbled and ran with the ball on several occasions which we haven't seen often.
He also won several headers , flick ons right in front of us in the stand in the first half Maybe we watched a different game
Also a strong defensive header in the second half

Thinking about it.  If the playing budget was set on projected gates and we are already not anywhere near hitting those targets can the current budget be held without one of the 4 options ?

If the same business model continues to be used as it has since the current Chairman took control, then why not?

Listening to the Boreham  Wood Manager's interview postmatch he loves the way Lynnplay and wishes he could play that way and get the results,but he can't..or words to that effect.

People were saying that about Lynn in the NLN,but Lynn proved them all wrong.

However at step 2 the midfield and forwards were able to make inroads and create and take chances. We are not currently creating enough chances and hardly taking any.


Playing IC's desired style (which has to be the way to go if he's in charge) we are always likely to concede a goal per game, so we have to find a way to be more creative. The defensive side of things is reasonable at the moment.

Personally I feel we should be getting more out of Sundire, Gyasi and Linton.
Who do Lynn have as attacking coach at the moment I wonder ?
Sundire has a good engine , Gyasi unpredictable and exciting skill, lacking an end product.
Linton has looked classy in patches, but we need more of it.
I feel we should.put emphasis on getting work into these guys, to try and improve their end product.

Omotayo and Morias are the two contracted forwards and need to work on their partnership....Morias has been absent for a large part of the season and needs to ensure he stays disciplined........ hopefully both will start to feel more of a pattern developing over the next few games which will lead to a few goals and a rise in confidence.


Unless Lynn have an incredible cup run, it seems most of the improvement needs to come from what we currently have......I am not sure we are getting the best from said players currently.

I am sort of with you Linnet, in fact I have said it for a while - we have to stop thinking of Gold as a 'target man' as he plainly isn't however if we think of him as someone who can run the channels and move defenders around then he may have a role so long as someone tells his teammates not to hit balls in the air!  What he is crying out for is a partner who is going to stretch defences and on current evidence that isn't Linton (who looks willing but hasn't formed any sort of partnership with Omotayo and doesn't look anymore likely to score than him) or Morias (who came on and played left back for some of the game last night and could easily have found himself with another red for lashing out - I also think he was booked for something he said - and doesn't look anymore likely to score than Gold or even get himself in the box).

Reading through the posts on the forum regarding strikers, it seems seems we havent replaced the duo of Gash and Marriott. It must be frustrating for IC to see, game after game, the front men hitting the side netting, posts and everywhere else apart from the goal. We are stuck with the front men, we have, them , being on contract, but in fairness how many games have we played the same two up front for two games in a row. Gash and Marriot played untold amount of games together and had an understanding of where each would be. This takes time,  Morias seems on the edge all the time, is he going to get booked or sent off. I cant get to games living where i am, so have to rely on here and Radio Norfolk for my info. There is time this season yet to turn this around, but we need consistency up front to form a partnership.
