Nope, he was a caucasian male in his late twenties to early thirties.

He was a pillock.

I'd be in favour of retro shirts and it is a big and popular business now. I guess the problem, as for all merchandising for lower and non league clubs, is economy of scale with the purchasing. Would the club be able to justify buying enough to make the price attractive for them and us? Maybe something for Mark H to look into.

I have no idea how many would make a run worth while, but the good thing about retro shirts is that wont go out of date. Even if they were stored else where so as not to clog up the shop or available to purchase on-line and collect in the shop on match days?

I replied to a Jamie H post on Facebook saying that I think retro Lynn shirts would sell well in the club shop. Maybe another money spinning line to add cash to the clubs coffers?

Does anyone know if there is any radio coverage of the Darlington game?

Burger of the Year? What a load of rubbish. The catering last season was poor if we had anything. The number of times I tried to buy a cup of tea and they had run out, burgers (if they hadn't run out) were normally not cooked through and ropey anyway. No chocolate bars. Simple stuff for a man with a back ground in hospitality.

Burger of the year? Histon FC's burgers, like the Linnets that night, were awesome! Have a look there Mr Cleeve, make a transfer swoop for their catering!

So Posh are you supporting the chairman for putting KLTFC first or moaning about him . Does it matter how its done so long as he gets it right!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #confused

100% support his actions but wish he could have done it slightly more covertly.

I'm really happy that Mr Cleeve stood up for the club and threw his weight about. I'm all for openness and honesty in front of the fans but maybe a little more work should have been done 'behind the scenes' rather than on Tw@tter?

Although I totally agree with people's thought on the bar being a great place to generate atmosphere etc and is something that is needed ,will it really generate much profit ? You've only got to look around towns and villages countrywide to see that pubs n clubs (that are able to open longer hours than a football club bar) are closing down and going out of business on a regular basis.

You only had to look in the club house/bar at Stourbridge to see what we are missing. It was two or three deep at the bar every time I went in and the place was packed out. There were 5 or 6 people staffing the bar and they were running their socks off, a credit to Stourbridge FC in my opinion. The beer was 3.20 a pint. Football memorabilia on the walls, Sky Sports on the TV. People enjoying the banter and having a really good time. It cant be rocket science for a hotel owner to be able to sort out a bar at a football club. I bet they took in excess of 3000 across the bar on Saturday, that's before we start to bemoan our lack of match day catering (another simple task for a hotel owner?).

At the end of the day, it is what it is. Somebody will win the games and go up.

Biggest question I have is are we a strong enough team to cut at the next level? In my opinion probably not at the moment, but I'd love to see us have a bloody good go.

General Discussion / Re: Clarke (balance)

..... the manner of those defeats is something else.   In particular Biggleswade and Lowestoft.  The team looked confused and lacking in confidence. 

Agree with that 100%. The team under Clarke seemed to have no attacking flow, little to no confidence and seemed to me to be too rigid. No-one looked like they wanted to back each other up. When Clarke had gone the first game Vs Histon was amazing. Free flowing and everybody helping each other out. It was a team of 11 players rather than 11 individuals. In general I don't care if we lose as long as the players are playing for the badge on their shirt.

I'd stick with Backie and Fryatt until at least half way through the season. If it looks like we are not going to gain a place in the play-offs then start looking for a new manager to allow him to stabilise his squad before the 2019/2020 season starts, as Cluverhouse did. If it looks likely that we going to get a play-off slot (or higher fingers crossed) then leave the guys in charge so as not to rock the boat.
As for a new manager coming in, I would want to see confirmed contacts for any new staff and also either a track record if success or a contract in place that states the performance I would expect from the team.
But its the chairman's club, not mine.  :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

As we are currently sat 19th in the league I imagine its quite hard to attract a manger with the right CV to the club when the chairman's and fans expectations are at least a play-off place.

It reminds me of the situation we found ourselves in with the unveiling of a sponsor that took weeks and weeks and weeks. We were told there were sponsors at the table, we were being told that there are names in the hat for the managers post.

At the moment Backie and Fryatt are doing an amazing job above and beyond what they set out to do at the start of the season. I would like to see a new manager unveiled before it goes wrong and we lose a couple of games. (Hopefully we don't lose any, but I'd love to see these two guys go out with a 100% record).

Do we have a new manger in waiting who is trying to sort two or three players out to come with him?

Brilliant. Really good quality video and very well presented.
Maybe a monthly interview with the chairman would be nice. Or even the occasional fans (visiting fans would be very interesting!) view? But dont let these get in the way of a superb service.

What formation and tactics were used against Histon as opposed to Saturday's game?

The answers to that might shed some light on the display that scored 7goals!

Much the same as last season the players were all playing for each other last night. Defensively we were seemed to be challenging for almost everything, running off the ball and hustling the Histon players when we didn't have the ball. On the ball in the first half was amazing, multiple players making runs at the Histon defence at the same time gave our midfield the chance to pick the best option. Wide players on both sides of the pitch stretching out the Histon defence. Chances in front of goal actually went in. The team played as a team. Nobody was arguing with each other, they congratulated passes and runs that didn't make it instead of shouting at each other. They backed each other up when people ran forward out of position. Couple of superb stops from Pedro that might go un-noticed when you score seven goals. It all went well last night. Histon changed the way they defended in the second half and got more of a grip, and I think Lynn backed off a little too, but still looked dangerous going forward. Harry Limb ran his socks off, superb performance and would have been great for him to net a goal or two. Would have liked to see Rocha up front for the second half, running at their centre backs, his pace and physicality could be a great asset.

Best thing last night was the look of the team at the final whistle and how they applauded the travelling fans. I just hope that the new manager coming in lets those lads play football and not be too rigid with the system he brings in.
