General Discussion / Re: Darlington

Good answers. I recall a nice free kick from Dale Anderson that he bent into the top corner. Not sure he did much else in a Lynn shirt though. The player I was thinking of was Les McJanet. Anyone remember him and whether he played for both teams?

Can anyone name a player who has played for Lynn and Darlington? I think I know of one from slightly before my time maybe v early 80ís.

I'm making the pilgrimage home from the West Midlands for this game.  This will be my first game of the season and looking forward to it. 
Score 3-1, gate 1205

Personally Iím very sorry to see Toby go. Great lad and always put in 100% for the team. Good luck to him and thanks for what you did for Lynn.

I don't get the idea of shopping for football at Wisbech as an alternative.  Its like deciding to support Boston or Tamworth.  Wisbech FFS???  Lucky Heather anyone?

I can see both sides of the argument.  I think £15 is steep for this level of football (actually I think all levels of football are grossly overpriced).  And I also see that people may not be flush with spare cash at Christmas time.  But I also doubt very much that the chairman is taking anything out of the club (in fact totally the opposite) and is probably looking to raise money for the second half of the season and the promotion push, and we also have a few away games in a row  currently which won't help with cash flow.  Talk of profiteering is harsh because Mr Cleeve is almost certainly not profiteering personally in the big scheme of things.

But I wonder what would happen if during the festive season we LOWERED the admission prices, rather than raised them?  It might pay off with considerably higher attendances and a net increase in profit overall?  Often people need to get out of the house on Boxing Day (I know I do!), and a well advertised lower price game for the holiday could work out well.

I like the chairman's notes. I would imagine that in many areas outside of KLTFC I would be in total disagreement with Mr Cleeve, but I like his honesty and the fact that he is opinionated. As I said sometime ago about the media and players/media in football, they so rarely say anything of any interest. That's why I'd rather have a chairman who has a lot to say and is prone to Prince Phillip style outbursts. Why does everybody hunger for total blandness?

Nonsense as usual. Nuneaton are a full time team, which must be way more expensive than our set up to finance.

We did ok yesterday at times but it really underlines the step up that exists when you get to this level.

Mallard - I can't argue with any of your points.  I think I just find the negativity draining.

I think the point that Grangiecabs rightfully makes is that there is a tendency of one or two individuals to moan/complain about something (anything in fact) on this forum almost as a reflex involuntary behaviour.  Amazingly there are actually other general websites dedicated to this kind of thing - here for example -  http://ayemon.forumotion.com/
Its like an itch that needs to be scratched.  Maybe its the need to be controversial or seeking attention.  Maybe its a genuine gripes.  I dunno.  Sometimes its amusing but generally I think it detracts from actual football chat and its a bit boring.  Each to their own I suppose.

I recall a feisty encounter there in the days of Ian Stringfellow playing.  Think he scored a couple and we won 4-2?  Atmosphere was 'unfriendly' in the second half.

General Discussion / Re: Culverhouse Not Happy With The Crowd....
« on: August 27, 2017, 07:59:53 AM »
The title of this thread is nonsense. I imagine in general the manager is delighted with the crowd and the support. There are literally one or two voices begging for Lynn to get the ball forward at every opportunity from people who clearly know nothing about the game. Most people yesterday would have seen that Lynn played some very good passing football. It was always going to be difficult because Frome came for a draw. But we squandered the best chance towards the end of the game when Norman smashed the ball into the side netting.
Keep going lads.

I'll be making the pilgrimage back to my home town on the weekend and bringing my 5 year old lad to the game (his favourite players Alex Street and Toby Hilliard).  So thats 2 more towards the 1000 mark.

Looking forward to it! COYL

It is called finding a balance and having an opinion, many think that £10 is about the right price for this level, many are happy to pay more!  As for glasses in the bar well Mr Cleeve at the fans forum was quite flippant when he said that was an easy fix, once he had fixed that he could concentrate on the real matters in hand! Now he can't find a plumber to plumb in a glasswasher, hand him a yellow pages someone!
Everything is great when the team is winning, but will the crowd hold up if we suffer a few losses?  As for the bar,at the first home game I must have been the most empty I have ever seen it,827 crowd, not even a queue at the bar,when I walked in there wasn't even one person at the bar! After the game I didn't see one person in the bar, what is the answer to that? :dontknow:

Aside from the frankly tedious banter between some of you on this thread there is a decent point here.  The revamp of the bar under the previous regime has made the place incredibly sterile and unappealing.  Prices are one thing and the quality of beer, and so are glasses to some it seems, but in order to make people drink in a place there needs to be a little bit of character.  I understand that in order to get some other revenue outside of match day you need to make the place perhaps a bit more generic, but it has gone too far.  I recall with some fondness the old bar which was heaving in the old days.
