Thanks for that Tony, what a Chairman/owner and manager! They keep selling players for decent money and still climb the league. Good example of how to run a football club.

It’s certainly good to see the academy expanding. Think Alex Cross has a good eye for spotting and nurturing young talent.
What I find difficult to understand is where is all the money coming from to pay the Coaches, provide the kits, transport etc etc. AC must be full time as is Josh Coulson. All this expense for a club that was going out of business a few weeks back? Answers on a postcard ………

So we got that vital 3 points win at last! I wasn’t there so could not possibly comment on the merits of our play but thank goodness we now have a fresh start to see if we can put a winning run together. Lots of draws and the odd loss will no longer suffice if we want to stay in the NLN. Looking at the remaining fixtures ( only 14 remain) and realising we need at least 50 points to be sure of survival, I’ve had a stab at seeing where those points might come from, trying to be realistic and not too optimistic.So here goes and you can tear this apart at your will ( as I know you will any way)!                                   
                             Pts
          Alfreton A Dr   1
         Brackley A Lose 0
         Farsley C H Win 3
         S Shields H Dr.  1
         Blyth Sp. A Dr   1
         Bishops S A Win 3
         Rushall O H Win 3
        Tamworth. H Lose 0
        Scunthorpe A lose 0
        ScarboroughH Dr 1
         Banbury.     A Dr 1
         Peterb Sp.   H Dr 1
         SpennymoorA Dr 1
         Chorley.     H Lose 0

                           Total 16 added to 32 we have = 48 (probably 2 pts short).  Winning 3 Drawing 7 Losing 4

                           This also assumes Margetts plays every game and scores at least seven

             What do you think? - Don’t have sleepless nights-I’m hopefully wrong anyway.

FC, obviously lots of twists and turns to come but overall 12 points between now and Easter will probably keep us in the mix although probably not safe.  I would however hope for a few more than four points from the final five games but by that point it will be who handles the pressure the best.  The hope is that Margetts can prove the difference as more often than not it is goals scored that digs teams out of the mire rather than clean sheets.

Yes Tony, I reckon that the predicted run of 12 points from 7 games before Easter is vital to give us confidence before the final run in of six games. It’s vital that Margetts remains fit (and is selected). My main fear is AL’s reluctance to start games with either Hughes or Rogers on a regular basis and is why I worry about the lack of creativity for Margetts in those last few games but as everyone says there will be many twists and turns.

Hi well wisher,
Nice to hear from someone else whose been to most of the matches.I think you make some excellent points, including having some good individual players in the squad. My concern is that our coaches seem to overthink the required tactics for each individual match, even to the point of now leaving out both remaining playmakers in recent matches. I think we can get away with “hoofball” and occasionally get three points, because “ hoofball” is a roll the dice numbers game from which you will get several draws, the odd win and odd loss, which we can no longer risk. So for the second 45 mins at Gloucester I understand we were more or less dominant, but this was against the third worst team in the league? I just hope AL includes either Rogers or Hughes from the start of every game to provide more chances for Margetts on the deck. I fear though that “putting a shift in” and “100% work rate “ will win out in most games resulting in more paint dry football and fewer points gained. I hope you’re right and I admire your enthusiasm. Keep up the impressive travelling support!

Good game and Academy team the better side.

2 very different ways of approaching the game, both on the pitch and in the dugout.

Do you think we’d have anything to lose now by thanking Adam and Sam for their efforts, however it’s not working and asking Josh C to give it a go to the seasons end?
I know many will say what about the compensation cost to say bye bye to Adam and Sam? There surely must be a performance requirement in their contracts which is in the negative?
I genuinely believe we have some good players in the squad who, given the license to play the game positively could keep us up.
Couldn’t get to the under 23 game last night so watched Banbury/Darlo. The football played by both teams was of a controlled passing style with end to end positive play mostly on the deck.
Banbury we’re in a far better position than us but still changed manager as did Darlo who seem to have improved. Hate to mention it but JB scored both in a 2-1 away victory for the linnets.
So what do you think? If you could make the decision would it be bye bye or carry on hoofing and hoping?

What a good idea, more than one person putting in money, (or directors loans) not just one know all making all the decisions, less chance of appointing the wrong managers for the  job in hand. Let’s hope they do well and set a good example :comeon:

General Discussion / Manager has definitely lost the plot
« on: January 27, 2024, 11:13:39 PM »
Following Tuesday nights match I thought the Manager may have lost the plot - not because of the result but because  of the total apparent lack of any cohesion in the team.After today I know he has the plot big time. Following JB’s departure we were left with just two playmakers in the squad, Hughes and Rogers. Today I was astonished when the teams were read out and neither were in the starting eleven. Both sitting on the bench at a time when we need playmakers to create the chances.
Having let that sink in I then thought the announcer must have got it wrong when Margret was announced as being among the substitutes. What were the loyal Lynn fans to think? The pitifully low crowd from Tuesday’s game could be forgiven for thinking maybe our Star goal - a - game striker was just a victim of getting no supply from his Hoof it! Headless chicken team mates and they would see the real thing today?.Not a bit of it, he was well and truly benched for not being a Hoofit! Player. So the wages saved from flogging Crowther are then spent on a goal a game striker (because we need goals) who sits on the bench to watch a goal less draw - you couldn’t make this up.
On my way home it suddenly dawned on me! Although most right thinking Lynn fans would expect us to go for 3 points today and play our Star studded new striker, our manager probably  was thinking it’s self preservation time - I can’t afford to lose this match, so we will go defensive and that’s why we were again treated to watching paint dry football. We already knew our great leader had lost the plot but now his manager has too. By the way, the plot is to score goals in order to collect enough points to finish higher than 4th from bottom. In order to achieve this simple aim (made to sound difficult by coaches) we need at least one playmaker and a goal scorer. I wonder who the may be?

Keep the faith - COYHeadless chickens!

General Discussion / Re: Hughes next to go?
« on: January 26, 2024, 05:18:18 PM »
One thing I will agree with you on Pink is how much we miss Crowther. Average age of the three central defenders is 33 and it shows. This put together with the age of Margret, Hargreaves’s Jones aand Stephens makes for quite an experienced team so why was he bemoaning the fact that he needs experienced players?
Personally I think he has lost the plot and the pressure is showing in his interviews. He can though have no excuse for the way we are playing. He is with them full time on a daily basis, yet we show no routines at free kicks and struggle to put more than two passes together. Keep the faith, coyheadless chickens

General Discussion / Hughes next to go?
« on: January 25, 2024, 11:06:46 AM »
Tommy played well at Hereford, “putting in a shift “ whilst also scoring a vital goal. His reward? A place on the bench whist the headless chickens chased around like characters from a Monty Python sketch.

If Hughes is not good enough to come off the bench in a 4 nil drubbing he is yet another skilful playmaker surplus to requirements.

Come on you headless chickens, Keep the faith!

I think we will all have to get used to that.It sometime feels that Lynn want to be a club that prides itself in distancing itself from its customers.That's unless they need the begging bowl to be handed around or some buffoon is blowing his own trumpet.
Well a 2-2 draw away to a team in the play off positions is't bad
And a 0 - 4 loss at home to a team who weren’t in a play off position?
