Stan, There were too many fundemental mistakes made at the back IMO...I will however say it did improve as the game went on but this is just not my opinion. Many around me were saying the same so we cant all be wrong!

This game reminded me of the Harlow game a couple of seasons ago in that Buxton came along with a plan to stop Lynn from playing by fair means or foul.
 Buxton made life difficult for Lynn in the first half with a well drilled pressing game which gave Lynn insufficient time on the ball to get their passing game going. Buxton had pace in attack and looked more than capable of scoring which they did first to go in one up at half time. As the second half wore on Buxton tired and Lynn with a great run and back heel from Hawkins set up Marriott who from the edge if the penalty area drilled in a low shot to the bottom corner to make it 1-1 with over 30 mins still to play. Buxton tired and Lynn pressed for an equaliser. But Buxton hung on to take the game to extra time and nicked it with a late winner as penalties were looming.
Overall I thought Lynn were the better side and created enough chances to win the game but, as has been typical of their home performances this season, they can't seem to convert them. Buxton's pressing and competitive attitude was impressive in many ways but they were also fouling constantly and with a stronger ref might have ended the game with 9 men. It's a shame that a footballing side like Lynn can be stopped in this way. Refs have a duty to ensure that football can be played and not allow a cynical bunch like Buxton to get away with the amount of fouling that they did.
Lynn's defence were excellent  - what a great partnership McCauley and Fryatt have formed - and I thought most players had good games.
50 % of Hawkins play is brilliant while the other 50% is awful. I know that he made the goal and created chances but on too many occasions I saw him attempting to dribble from  positions that were too deep and lose the ball. He needs to get his head up more and keep the ball moving. He's like the Adel Taraabt of the side: exciting and frustrating in equal measure. Clunan had a disappointing game and does appear to have lost some form in recent matches.

Agree with most of your post but!.....You mention Lynn's defense were excellent???...Myself and all around me must have been watching a diffent game then because we thought it was at most times appalling!... AS you do say though and I agree Clunan had a disppointing game he and Javis gave the ball away so many times we lost count!....Outstanding last night was Frazer Blake..When he went on his runs he cut through Buxtons defense like butter...shame that on a few occasions his deliveries were not converted..ahh well we move on and hopefully we improve...

Is funny the difference 3 points can make isnt it!?

Has there been any indication from boss as to why Limbs not getting any playing time, is he carrying a knock or something? Sure he was unveilled as our big signing pre-season yet they don't seem to want to play him or even bring him on as sub. Coming from Burnley he must be getting paid a decent wage down here still yet not playing.

Roll on bank holiday weekend indeed!

Hilliard....3 starts....0 goals....(two open goals missed!)...Surely Harry Limb gets his chance next game?

So Limb finally comes on but replaces Parker who was the previous substitute!
Wtf!?  :dontknow:

Did Parker pick up a knock early and was replaced?....I am also surprised as to why Limb is not being used? Is he carrying an injury?.....Starting with the same 11 as from Saturday is surprising also IMO.

After another fantastic win (1-7 away to Gosport) I was expecting to see a great report all over the back page of today's Lynn News...BUT NO!...all we have is a small narrow report on the inside back page (Swaffam even had a bigger report on their game).. :red card:

Shame on you Lynn News! :red card:

General Discussion / Re: Next 8 weeks.
« on: October 30, 2017, 12:42:59 PM »
I hope our second half showing against BS, and the rubbish against Mildenhall, was a case of being over confident because in the next 8 weeks we have some tough games. Cup ties permitting its Royston at home who deserved their 3 points at their place also amongst others it Hereford at home. Redditch home, Slough home, Kettering away on New years day. there are other teams also home and away who will be no push overs. If we are still in the mix mid January it will be looking good.  just one other point, did anybody else notice how bobbly the pitch was on Saturday? Had it been rolled, and is it a good idea to let the kids have a kick about on it?         

A few of us commented on the "bobbly" pitch...It certainly did NOT look like it had been rolled...

Anyone know if there will be any sort of catering available tonight?...Cheers

I drove past the ground at lunchtime and there was some sort of agricultural machinery being unloaded through the gate.

Agricultural machinery could be anything fom a rake to a major earth moving machine? Is the pitch being raked over with sand,or dug up and relayed as promised? :dontknow:

Grissles has a good point IMO....I am no expert of sand/grass re-seeding but it was clear to see that we have a very bumpy un-even playing surface so I am not clear how just putting sand and re-seeding will make it any different!. Digging up the pitch and relaying does make sense if you want a FLAT playing surface.

General Discussion / Re: Retained list

Hick,  that sounds more like revolution when I think we will be more looking at evolution. 

Culverhouse has been very calm and calculated since his arrival.   Sure he will bring in fresh bodies and im sure a few will depart.  I see it more with the guys coaching skills he will get the very best out of what he decides to keep.


Not a revolution just my opinion to who I think should stay. I just don't think the rest (apart from Leon Mettam if he returns?)are good enough imo.

With the season now done can we expect to hear of Culverhouse's retained list anytime soon ?

Ok guys you are in his seat.   ideally who would like like to keep for next season ?

I will go with.....

Ward T

If we work on the idea of an 18 man squad then that leaves room for 4 newbies coming in.   Couple of strikers and Midfield players maybe ?    Lot of defenders in there, maybe one too many.

Havent factored in Mettam either, would the fans like to see him back with us next season ?  maybe we would see what he is all about under a different Manager ?

Tom Ward
(That's it for me!)

Thanks for info guys!...Maybe he may still feature in Ian Culverhouse plans for next season. IMO Leon is a player that will score goals if we get that BIG quality forward for him to play alongside or just behind. We did not have that when he was here. In the days of Russ Dunkley type he would have scored a hat full I think.

Apologies if this is (former linnets?) but what is the situation regarding Leon? Is he still out on loan or been released?...

I agree also that the Manager would have learned a lot from last night. It was very clear to see we desperately need some quality strikers for next season.
