Can see PS winning 3-1. They're a very good attacking team that are used to creating multiple chances every game, regardless of opposition. Confidence high infront of goal too. I know they're 2 levels below, but really they're basically a top 5 Step 2 side, and that's a side that can easily beat King's Lynn.

1-0 down in 15 minutes, 2-1 defeat. Just lack bite and can't see it changing at home.

It's a big step up, but when you are scoring goals you are full of confidence. A striker full of confidence is worth the gamble. Not going to give them the chance when confidence is high, when are you going to?

Will be a great loss if we lose Sonny. 100K doesn't go far replacing him at this level

Might not, but is Carey going to be the difference between repeating last season and staying up. Probably not, but 100k+ goes a LONG way to clearing the debt and ensuring club is a step closer to security in that sense.

Probably suspect the moves will start to happen a lot more after play offs are finished, and most likely when contracts end in June. Start of July going to be hectic, as I'm sure quite a few clubs will have the players lined up already but not announced for a while.

I'd have thought Chris Smith would leave if club goes full time. Thought that was one of the reasons he originally joined, the part time fitting around his studies/future work.

Good signing this. Should give the new look defence some solid structure with the communication, and ability to claim/clear crosses will be big.

One experienced player in the spine, now for the CB/CM/ST.

Bradley Rolt should be signed. Seen some of his stuff at u18, and think there's a top goal scorer in there. Obviously still needs to learn his game, but that's the sort of player the club should be targeting. As mentioned before, I'd only keep a small handful of existing squad and get rid of rest.

McFadden, Fleming, Smith, Richards, Clunan, Carey, Gash, Gyasi.

Mixture of players who are good enough to fill in the squad, and keep the dynamics of the club that know what it's meant to get here. So new players buy into the team, which has been completely lost since turn of the year. Experienced goalkeeper, CB and CM. Fill the wide positions with pace, ideally with younger players.

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.

If Boreham Wood are cutting back next season, and Cleeve wants to make a statement at this level, then sign Tshimanga.

Sorry NL but we are going have to agree to disagree.  Much as the past couple of performances haven't been great (I didn't see the Dagenham game but did get reports), there were signs prior to that that we were actually trying to get back to something resembling an IC team, not something that could be said of more than a few short spells in any game prior to furloughing kicking in.  Also be careful to compare like with like - it would seem that the current crop only meet up on match days whereas their semi full time counterparts from the start of the season were training regularly during the week. 

I am not saying all of the current players should be signed up for next season but given the circumstances they have been thrown together and what they also have around them is probably not the ideal situation to 'trial' players.  Maybe what we can agree on is that the squad (both furloughed and current) needs a major overhaul in the summer if were are going to be anywhere near mid-table safety next season.  There was a brief comment by SC last night about how late the current season finishes and when the next starts not leaving much time for planning which didn't really inspire much confidence as it might be hoped that planning for next season was already well underway.

Going forward it's still been good at times, but defensively it's getting worse and it's the sheer basic stuff that's alarming.

Take the starting squad from last night: Richardson, Callan-McFadden, Clunan, Gash, Gyasi, Fleming, Kiwomya, Carey, Denton, Coleman, Howard.

Only McFaddan and Carey I'd want to be lining up in a staring XI come August 14th. Gyasi/Clunan/Gash/Fleming happily to have in the squad. Rest haven't shown anything to me, or even be players that can be justified to tie down on reasonable money for the whole season.

Club come up last year with myself thinking just a couple of players will need adding to be competitive at this level, and make a good showing. Staying up, before then looking at changing things further. This summer, IMO the work required just to get to the level of standard seen at the start of this season, is huge. Wouldn't blame IC if he felt it was a bit of a lost cause.

If this is being used as a trial for players, then sack vast majority of them off. It's literally night and day to what the team was like at start of season, both in terms of quality and actual desire.

Lynns pitch is just what it is unfortunately. The amount spent on digging it right down, to properly sort out the drainage/layers etc. It would be a better investment long term just to go 4G. But then if Cleeve has his sights set on football league in next few years, 4G isn't an option.

With the club loan, surely now is the time to look at going down this avenue. Everything will then be able to done at the Walks. All the teams games, first team/reserves/academy training. Local clubs using it for games when not in use, community use as an alternative to Lynn Sport.

I would like to see Lynn next season utilise P'Boro with them being close. Got a real good young crop of players coming through, and if they end up going up this season, and potentially establish in Championship, it's a strong club to have good connections with for the long term.

Potentially a good time for football in the area with P'Boro, Cambridge and Norwich all doing well, and King's Lynn can add their name to it hopefully by being a well liked club at this level for the football they try to play.

Does anyone have any info on how Harrogate are funded ? I ask because they seem to be an unfashionable club with limited past history who have found a way to compete successfully.

Rich owner.

They did also have a 4G pitch, which was used 7 days a week all year round though, so whilst owner backed the club financially there was good income streams too.
