No Ö nothing against setch  at all , read his posts on fb and thereís no way heíd want that
But also canít we ever move forward letís start a new era not keep harping on about ex players ,managers
No doubt all great servants for the club but letís look forward.

One good reason why not
Three for starters:
1/ He doesn't have any experience managing at this level
2/ He is unlikely to have the contacts required
3/ When he left last time, I don't believe his relationship with SC was great

Those 3 took me 5 seconds to come up with.....if I took another 10 seconds I could probably come up with a few more, but what's the point, as Blu has said, great servant at a lower level in the past, but let's stop forever looking backwards and move on.

No contacts hey! Where did he find Craig Mackell Smith and Rene Howe from if he has no contacts.Perfect players in the situation that KLTFC are in at the moment. Been there done that and worn the t-shirt. And no i am not saying come home Setch. I have known him since the day he was born as used to play in the same team as his dad many years ago. He was dumped once by SC (who actually asked me personally if he should get rid of him, obviously i did not reply, so why would he want to go back for round 2?

If I were Setch, I'd be thinking 'I fancy that'

6 months, till end of season and regardless of where we end up, you know one thing.  It will be one hell of a fight.

Doesn't have the contacts required , to my mind.....the names you have thrown out there Gordon don't convince me otherwise......I guess it's  all about how we each interpret the current situation...and that obviously differs from fan to fan

With the greatest respect, most managers at Bedford's level would probably think that too......but this is the NL....... it's a harsh reality league full of hardened pro's...... fairytales don't come true and jumping from  step 4 to 1, would be like Alan Devonshire leaving Maidenhead to manage Watford

Whatís the point of having contacts if the manager is not allowed to sign the players he wants?   :dontknow:
Title: Re: Setch
Post by: KES80 on November 30, 2021, 09:40:01 PM
Thought he did pre season or am I wrong in that assumption?

So what are you saying? A Manager shouldnít be allowed to sign the players he wants throughout the season?  :dontknow:

Post by: Grissles Oleary on November 30, 2021, 10:24:51 PM
As far as I am aware the manager signed who he wanted? :dontknow:
Title: Re: Setch
Post by: rod on November 30, 2021, 10:54:23 PM
IF IC had good contacts and WAS allowed to sign who he wanted...It does not say a great deal for the quality of those contacts and his judgement as to what was going to be required at this level?

IF and WAS????????

Has much as I like the big fella and his talent I fear our league would be one step beyond what we need is a manager thatís used to this league and who could bring in some useful players

I think, reading between the lines that IC was allowed one main shot at getting the recruitment right and that was preseason. I remember IC saying at that stage that they had to get it right " or the consequences would be severe". For Lynn to make the financial commitment to go full time and all that that entailed, I suspect it was known at the time that further recruitment , once the season got underway was likely to be limited, especially if attendances were moderate.
Of course in that situation, if things don't work out then any manager will ask for  more new signings, but I suspect it wasn't do able within the agreed plan.
Title: Re: Setch
Post by: Mallard on December 01, 2021, 03:55:13 PM
On the subject of attendances KES it just shows that Lynn fans will turn out in decent numbers if they have a team that is successful, no matter what level they are playing at.   Step one might be the top level of Non League Football but you will
Be down to the hardcore watching when the team is struggling.

Something there to factor in going forward for the Chairman and his budgets and pricing structure.

Absolutely Mall.
Title: Re: Setch
Post by: John H on December 01, 2021, 05:01:27 PM
Mallard, yes this is true, I guess that applies to most clubs though. At the start of this season, most of us I would think would say that a successful season would be to avoid relegation. Of course, we can still achieve that, it's by no means impossible.
SC can see how tough this level is and he knows what is needed, maybe he should have acted sooner. It would probably take a couple of seasons at this level to find our feet and to become a good mid table team.

 :farmer: :oldman" I personally feel we need a manager with experience in the National league,who has a note book full of contacts at National league level and above, not below, we could possibly survive with a few players from lower levels, but we as a club seem to be recruiting all from lower leagues or injury prone players from our level or slightly higher. The problem as I see it is, no money, no players really up to the level, no money coming in through the turnstiles to fund better players, no real income from advertising, so realistically what experienced manager would really want too take that on . Only time will tell. :oldman" :farmer:

I think youíve explained quite eloquently why we are unlikely to get a manger experienced at this level, and will end up taking a punt on an inexperienced up and coming manager, because they are the only ones likely to be affordable and willing to take the punt and what might be seen as poisoned chalice.
Title: Re: Setch
Post by: Mallard on December 01, 2021, 06:05:16 PM
No matter whoever comes in as Manager to attract decent players will cost decent money to dig us out of this hole.  Is that money there ?  Seemingly not as IC was struggling to get players in of the right calibre.   A team not winning wonít attract numbers through the gate. 

Speculate to accumulate and all that.  Otherwise itís a cert we will finish in the bottom 3.

IF this happens will be interesting to see what the Cleeve plan will be with no £500k to prop the club up next season.

It all seems head in the sand.

Wonder if we can find a player manager of the right ilk... would be a cost effective thing to do and given the youngsters some direct leadership on the pitch

What youngsters are they KES? By youngsters i would think u20s but as far as i am aware there is nobody in that bracket certainly not literally at the club daily, possibly only the likes of Joe Gascoigne, Fleming out on loan.
Title: Re: Setch
Post by: Sam Spade on December 01, 2021, 09:27:24 PM
I expect the 'youngsters' referred to are the high ratio of 19, 20, 21 yrs olds in the current team, including the loan players.     With 3 most recent speculative signings by the Owner when experience was called for. 

I seem to recall that the previous Manager requested 23+ aged players for the National League at the start of the season, realising the experience and strength of other teams from last season. A request that seemingly fell on hearing impaired ears.

Possibly, why King's Lynn are where they are.!!
Title: Re: Setch
Post by: KES80 on December 01, 2021, 09:43:40 PM
Was meaning most of the current squad Gordon.......so many are under 25 with limited first team experience......we seem to be crying out for a bit of experienced leadership and nous.
