General Discussion / Re: Gash & Jarvis leaving at end of season
« on: May 29, 2021, 09:53:51 AM »
Michael Gash has given his heart and soul to King's Lynn Town FC. His total commitment is evident as he chases every ball, either forward or in midfield and also at the back defending Free Kicks and Corners. At first I thought he was not as good as Big Jack Defty. However, he has certainly proved me (and others I am sure) wrong - Gashy is far quicker than Jack and just as effective in holding, laying off and scoring.

Ryan Jarvis has been quietly the most effective midfielder we have ever had. His higher level experience shows every time he dons the Lynn shirt. Everything calms down when he has the ball and this allows the others to re-group either in defence or attack.

We are going to miss these players but, as others have said, we must move on as time stands still for no man.

Thank you both for the football you have given.

There appears to be Stewards and Security.

Stewards are Volunteers who man the Gates, checking Tickets, marshalling fans and reminding fans of any restrictions and rules and attempting to enforce said restrictions/rules.

Security are Paid personnel who arrived late on Tuesday Evening, resulting in the Stewards at the Gates not being able to open up on time (1845), wave "Magic Wands" over fans and stand looking important. They are also there to protect players, officials etc. and keep the peace between Home and Away fans (when Away fans are permitted).

The fact that many fans cannot understand simple instructions or purposely infringe those restrictions (standing too close, not wearing masks etc.) is a concern. However, if anyone has a problem with these COVIDIOTS then move away and explain to Stewards/Security why, if they ask.

IMHO I believe you cannot do harm to a willing person (idiot) who catches COVID from someone (another idiot) they were standing too close to who was not adhering to official restrictions.  If this applies to you, the reader, I make no apology.

Great News. Thank you, whoever you are.

Now, what should we call the Stand  :dontknow:

I suggest: The Mick Wright Stand.

On Mallardís Cup Final point, I shared his enjoyment, apart from the Neanderthals who booed the taking of the knee, and the commentator trying to talk louder to hide it.

Great day for both teams coming out to cheering fans.

Then, to paraphrase Frank Sinatra, "And then they went and spoilt it all, by doing something stupid, like taking the knee".

As a Season Ticket Holder I shall be there for both games. Nothing like live football vs Stream.

I do realise that we are playing for nothing but physical support is needed at this time to give the players and management to give meaning to their endeavours this Season.

Attelborough Doug is spot on it has got a covernant on the ground and should
only used for football or sport. As for the car park being laid at Hospital End that would
be up to the club not the Council.

I wonder if Stephen Cleeve still has that "illegal" Parking Meter  :dontknow: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

I wonder how much the council value the land The Walks is on? Prime real estate where houses could be worth a small fortune. Park views, walking distance of train station that's straight into London. Developers dream.

Ideal for me if money was there to do a good stadium with council backing after selling the stadium land, locate it Greenyard Way, where the road infrastructure is already there. If logistically possible, have the main stand moved over from existing ground, have two terraced ends, and a brand new main stand that has top hospitality facilities. Giving size of land, can even build a few houses on there to recoup some of the money for the council (or go commercial to bring in jobs/investment to Lynn). There's also already a foot bridge going over the trainline so you can walk to the ground from Gaywood area (plus in future big games, links with the schools can see parking used at their places with a small fee going to them so the car network is distributed more away from the actual ground).

Logistically ideal, just unsure if council have that area/land earmarked for housing development. Fylde I always see as the template for new stadiums in the top level of non league if you want to go the full works.

An idea that has been around for a number of years, in one form or another.

A great chance to build something for the club and the local community. Sooner or later something serious is going to have to happen with the Walks, irrespective of the level the club plays at.

As long as a new stadium doesn't have a bloody running track between the supporters and pitch.

With regards to cost, could it even be self funding? Selling an attractive piece of real estate and using the money to buy and develope agricultural land sounds good.

Saddlebow as a location?

Stick it on the Speedway Arena land  :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

General Discussion / Re: Lynn v Dagenham/Redbridge
« on: April 25, 2021, 09:18:51 AM »
I appreciate that everyone is doing their best but today's stream left something to be desired.
No sound until a while after the minute's applause and the late arrival of the "commentary" team after half time.
One goal we didn't even see properly.
The "commentary" more off topic than on and certainly of little interest to opposition fans,
Aldershot showed how it could be done on Tuesday but I guess it is a matter of people volunteering and having the time and skills to do it.

I was disappointed with the Stream yesterday. Flitting between cameras and zooming in to the player with the ball when we really needed to see the bigger picture of where other players were. Focus on action on far side was often blurred and, due to trying too close up shots, the cameras were jinking side to side trying to keep the ball in shot. A wider view would allow a smoother flow.

I do of course realise that the camera operators are not full time professionals - please accept my remarks and observations as constructive criticism.

At one point at the start of the 2nd half I thought someone was banging on the walls of the ground - but no, it was the Discussion Team (aka: the Commentary Team) returning late and charging up the stairs to their vantage point like a herd of elephants.

I have to agree with Nemesis that "A Little Less Conversation, a Little More Action Please" would not come amiss, albeit some snippets and updates from behind the scenes is welcome.

General Discussion / Re: Halifax v Kings Lynn.
« on: April 19, 2021, 12:43:51 PM »
We looked good on the ball going forward but Halifax found it way to easy to get onto our back line.   Hopefully people will appreciate what the likes of Ryan Jarvis brings to the party.

For IC since it was confirmed there was no relegation, then he is on a free hit and a fact finding mission from then to the end of season.  This period will give him a massive insight into what is required at this level.  A coach with his experience and knowledge will take it all in and use it all to his advantage come the start of next season.


Think we will see big changes during the summer and will have a team that will be able to compete at this level.

Every game is a Scouting opportunity to make notes on players who may become available as teams chop and change on Promotion and Relegation (from EFL 2).

With all due respect to the players concerned we are playing with a cobbled together team and still performing well against full-time teams. Results are not getting points but are getting experience into players which is no bad thing.  :scarf:

General Discussion / Clubs in Crisis Article in Daily Mail
« on: March 01, 2021, 07:14:44 AM »
Stephen Cleeve mentioned that a reporter from the Daily Mail was at The Walks for the King's Lynn v Weymouth game and an article on the Crisis of playing on would be in Monday's DM. Not much new apart from a possibility of still playing Notts County on Tuesday.
