I would like to think the attendance would be a lot more than 1100 tomorrow, particularly given the weather forecast.

I can't see The Moors bringing many more than 100, so I just added that to the 1000 regular, all weather, Lynn supporters.

 :scarf:

I had a pint with a bloke at Wenns on Thursday evening who had come for the weekend. Take in all the sights and football on Saturday.  I imagine the weather will encourage a few.   With 4 points from 6 and the ticket prices reduced,  you should see a fair few this afternoon... great weather for it.

It's a good move. The right thing to do.

Watch what happens when you start behaving like a decent club.

Here is done of what Caney said in YLP

Ticket prices

You can dress it up however you want. The rot set in as soon as it was confirmed the Linnetsí season ticket prices were going to be the most expensive in the top-tier of non-League football this term.

It hasnít got any better with seating prices coming in at £26 and £23 for adults, £21 for concessions and £11 for those aged 16 and under. Itís not family friendly. Is it any wonder people are having to pick and choose their games?

Matchday experience

Saturdayís match felt like I was attending a pre-season friendly Ė no atmosphere, a soulless bar with giant half-time queues and overpriced food that you had to walk through the away section to buy. Attending a matchday is about much more than the football and right now being at The Walks leaves you feeling short changed.

The chairman

Stephen Cleeve is entitled to his opinion. The problem is when youíre freely giving yours out, you have to accept people will disagree with you or potentially grow to dislike you.

Thereís a way to communicate with, and talk about, fans and as someone who works in PR, Lynnís chairman needs a crash course in how not to alienate people through his choice of words.

I stopped going after I turned up with £90 worth of wins for the 12th man scheme, then named in the programme the very next match as someone who wants the club to fail. He named Setch and Gavin Caney as well.

Not been back since.

It pains me to watch what's happening, really it does.

I still keep up to date through newspapers, this forum and social media,  but Cleeve wont be getting a penny off of me until I read a full, public apology.

Been waiting 4 years now.

It's good to talk, 

Maybe the programme sellers, gate stewards and others around the ground can mention it,  soon get the grapevine going.

Focus on that one simple thing,  the BT Sports ppl will pick up on it if the club do their bit,

Job's a good 'un.

General Discussion / 856 Foundation
« on: September 11, 2021, 10:13:34 AM »
I'm assuming someone at the club will be mentioning the 856 foundation on camera today?

Yesterday was suicide prevention day. (according to twitter)  and i see no better place than a football ground to highlight this cause that is so personal to so many of us.

Lee was my friend as well.  From breakfast club at BNI, to a pint in the Nap many a year ago and a few away days when i first moved up here. Like you,  I found friendship on the terraces at The Walks.  Lee was one of the blokes in the group i made friends with when i first started going to watch King's Lynn. They turned out to be collectively called the 856, yes I had to ask.........

For many of you, it was for much longer and your friendships will be much stronger, but what i do know is that today could be an extremely fitting tribute to Lee and show the club and therefore the Town in an extremely good light.

The town has shown it's love for him in it's outpouring of grief when we lost him,  today, the football family can show the football world not just what Lee meant to us, but also that's it is ok to be not ok. And it is,  good to talk.

It is good to talk and talking with mates at football has saved many a soul over the generations.  It's where we bond, we come together and get behind our team. We can forget our worries and let it all out for an hour or two. 

I'm not sure what would look like at The Walks today,  it could come in the form of banners at pitchside and a few words from the chairman in one of the televised snippets,  it could at 8 minutes and 56 seconds,  applause rings out throughout the ground....... It may come as a chant, in UNISON,  all I know is that today is an opportunity to honour a friend and highlight a bloody good cause and the 856 foundation that has been launched in lee's memory.

The map of the signatories reflects just that. Higher density in West Norfolk and fades out as you get further away.

Similar to the fan base really!

10,000 is where we'll be.

Even the eternal optimist in me wouldn't dare to suggest 100,000

I think for a town of 40,000 to get 1/4 of the population to sign is a good job done.

It keeps the campaign in the public eye and galvanizes people to focus on something we all care for.

Hi

Every Saturday from around 11am through till around 4.45pm and again on Sunday Mornings, hundreds, if not thousands of local people are in parks, fields and stadia watching or playing football and other high impact sports.

Every weekend, without fail, the A & E department will see quite an influx of visitors with sprains, breaks and fractures and head injuries sustained by people playing the beautiful game.

Our hospital however, regardless of how brilliant the staff and service provision given, is crumbling and is now very dangerous with over 200 props holding up the roofs in public access areas.

Wards have had to close to be made safe and it's getting worse.

There is a petition that requires 10,000 signatures to get a response from the Government. 

This petition needs just 380 more signatures to get that response.

Can i ask, that as a club,  we help push this over the line today. If you haven't signed, please do so.

Then share the petition link via email, WhatsApp, Fb, Linkedin etc and get this done today.

If you administer an email group, or FB group,  share this YET AGAIN with a personal plea if that's what it takes.


Thanks in advance

Let's just get this done.

MAH, Griss, thanks for clearing that up, I guess you won't be surprised that I won't now be wasting the fuel in travelling to Lynn for a 'social drink' on the 7th.

Isn't that where the best business gets done Tony?

Informally, over a few beers, where everyone gets a fair say rather than a formatted meeting controlled by someone who loves the sound of their own voice?

If you have 30 people in a bar, who all share a common goal,  add a few smiles and a little alcohol and watch what happens.

And remember, it's what happens between meetings that's important.

Meetings about meetings get sod all done other than ticking boxes and wasting everyone's time.

So the simple question is ...Why are we the most expensive and what is the justifying logic.......

New facilities?
