General Discussion / Re: Hawkins
« on: August 23, 2019, 11:49:27 PM »
I like Hawkins as a player but he is a little inconsistent for my liking.

My hunch is that it's his application thats caused this loan move.

I think IC want's players who will always give 100% and nothing else........I don't think Ryan always applies himself that well

A bit odd some of them, weren't they??

More intent on hitting fences and getting extremely irate rather than watch their team

Does anyone know if the home shorts are on sale anywhere??

I'm a bit of a "portly chap" and football shirts don't look good on me, but I'd like to wear the shorts when I'm on holiday and show people I'm a linnets fan!!

If that's the case, should be possible to swap the 2 fixtures around so we play them at home on a Sat in September and away on a Sat later in year.

You'll never get a job at The FA Kes - that's way too sensible an idea!!!!

I went to Stamford the other year, so I'll not bother with that.

I'll be going to Braintree though

Is this all a little  hasty? Carried away by the promotion success etc , why is the club making these announcements so soon? Surely they would have needed more time to review the likely squad structure, and what that will cost prior to this. It is almost certain they have only just got back to the ground after the wonderful occasion in Warrington and much number crunching remains incomplete. Positive , it may be, but the message is wrong, and a concern.

I actually think the opposite -

I think it's good that the club have announced the prices so soon after the end of the season as it stops speculation and gives people ample time to buy a S/T or set their budgets accordingly.

I also don't think announcing them is "hasty" as I guess that over the last few weeks, when the prospect of promotion became a realistic achievement, that discussions/decisions were being had/made and the decision of 15 is quite reasonable.........and certainly A LOT more reasonable than the 18 price which was being mentioned by a few

Rumour's so far suggest at least 3 departures including one high profile player.

High profile - Clunan??

The only other high profile player we may lose could be FBT, if he moves to a higher level.

To be fair to SC, he has announced all he can - there is a priority order for tickets and once those in the eligible categories have had the chance to claim their tickets the remainder (if any) will go on sale Thursday or Friday but, as he says, he needs to have the tickets in his possession first.  Warrington seem to have been caught completely by surprise at getting through to the Super Playoff and the prospect of having a 'big crowd' so I guess we all just have to wait and see what the rest of the week brings.  The 375 allocation has made it less than likely that I will be going but still hopeful that there will be a small number available to 'the public' and I am at least fortunate to work in Lynn so can get to the Walks if necessary.

I've posted elsewhere on social media that I've been to almost all the home matches and about ten away games this eason.
I'd planned to travel up on the Friday night - so can't get to the ticket office then.
I live and work near Banham Zoo these days - so can't get to the ticket office Thursday.

I've a feeling I'm going to miss out.

If, as reported, Warrington won't sell out the home allocation, could they not allow a few tickets to be available on the day for Lynn fans - I'm guessing the game will be segregated

If Lynn win on Saturday is Monday still all ticket can anyone seriously expect hundreds of people to commit to a match that has a date change five times the only sensible solution is pay as usual on Monday and hope the League do not come up with another date.

I have to agree with this.

I know there were lengthy queues at last years play off final, but it would be crazy to make this match all ticket at such short notice

An absolute shambles I feel sorry for owner and players I have bought two match tickets and train tickets from London for Monday .Cannot make Saturday or sunday

But "in the interests of fairness" do we not HAVE to play at the same time as the other Semi??

I'm hoping it's Saturday

Is the semi final only one leg??
I thought it was two legs!!

So, just to clarify, it'll be Wednesday 1st May for the semi Final and if we finish 2nd or 3rd, we'll be at home

The league Play Off Final is on Monday 6th May - Finish 2nd we'll be at home again, finish 3rd we'll be away - assuming we win the Semi Final

Then is Saturday 11th the "Super" play off final

Is that correct??

Good win against a physical side.

Regarding Clunan - I've been one of his biggest critics, but one thing I did notice on Saturday was his work rate for the team.
Many times he sprinted back to defend when we lost possession.

So, credit where it's due.

And.......Jordan Richards could turn out to be a little gem of a player

I thought the club had trademarked the new logo to stop others cashing in.

Who's to say Mr Cleeve hasn't given permission for this mob to use our logo for a small fee??!!

Frazer Blake-Tracey is easily player of the season so far, for me.
Works tirelessly, defends pretty well, gets forward to support at every opportunity and links up well with others.

Clunan.......as others have said, it's a shame to single individuals out and I know I'm often moaning about him, but as Wixy said, "What does he bring to the party"
He misplaces more passes than anyone else - I'm happy with him passing backwards and retaining possession rather than all the glamorous "Hollywood" passes he attempts.
I wasn't there Saturday, but was at Kettering, Needham and will be at Royston this week, so it's interesting to hear that he wasn't taking all set-pieces as usually his deliveries are somewhat lacking.

I personally think Clunan's problem is he isn't as good as HE thinks he is - of course he's a decent player to be playing at this level, but surely if he was as great as he thinks he is, other clubs would have tried to sign him??

Back on thread, a week's rest should hopefully do the squad the world of good and lets push on for the second half of the season.

After the first four games, I'm sure we'd all have snapped up the chance of being third in the league at the start of the new year!!
