General Discussion / Re: Outgoing?

Hi Linetts,

Southend fan here. Sorry to hear that you club is going through some difficulties. Fingers crossed that it gets resolved. We know only too well how bad things can be.

Now that we are out of our embargo, it seems we are linked with several players, one of which is young Crowther  at your place.

Seems like we are definitely interested and fits the remit of the players we are trying to sign.

Is he any good and what can we expect if he comes our way?

All the best Shrimpy.
Decent player had a exceptional season last year along side coulson , good tackler and in the air , this season he seemed to off plateaued but this seasons side at momentum to last is polar opposite, still little raw at times with distribution put him along side some experience and heíll do you a good job Ö. Just a shame the £300,000 price tag may put you off  :countingmoney: :laughcry:
£300,000?They could probably get Barrett for a third of that now Solihull have said they don't want him.
Price tag is our cost  to get to the end of the season , tbh be lucky to get £25000-30  for either Iíd rather sell JB than crowther

Well put walks in sunshine and lin365
Putting this anti cleeve aside do anyone really hand on heart want to see us fold ,look at the clubs weíve played over the last 3/4 years  the southends , notts county , chesterfield and even in the north the encounterís with Chester Hereford York then to fold and start all again ,  then possibly be watching wroxham Dereham etc ( no disrespect) yes people say weíll have local players etc and business involved but give that a couple of seasons finishing mid table and the moaning will soon begin and then the vicious circle begin better side need more investment, no players locally so we go further afield theyíll need more £ for travel etc whoís finding that because in todays climate I can see a few companies tightening their surplus budgets .
I just hope and prey Steve has got one more trick up his sleeve and can sort this season out and hopefully an investor to bring us back together again . Perhaps with Steve still involved in some form because I feel that guy does know his stuff about the game(  Podcasts worth a listen) and has put in the time for our success in the past .

Itís easy to give SC a kicking while heís down.  For sure the guy has made a boatload of mistakes.  Ainít we all ? 

However, despite all of that the guy had balls to pay good money to buy the Club and then set about achieving his ambition of League Football.  Most would have to admit to being a little excited by that prospect.  Heís spent big money along the way, sold assets to follow his dream.  How many of us out there would have committed to all of that ? 

Now it would appear itís all come to an end.  So ultimately the guy failed but at least he tried.   So time to move on and look to see what the future is for the Club after Stephen Cleeve.   

I really hope that if the Club enters administration that The owner tried to ensure all the local traders are sorted, if indeed there are debts in that area.

Letís hope there is someone waiting in the wings to pick it up.

Blimey Mallard you change your mind more than my Mrs
So you hoping for what a vet appointment or a investor  :sinking: :countingmoney:

Blueboy, you made my day. Perhaps we could have the best of both worlds: a vet who is willing to invest?!

The amount vets charge Iím sure thereís a few willing to invest
Well just hope SC doesnít have the club put down after hours or a weekend thatíll cost him even more Ö

So who are these players he wants to move on ??
His summer purchases or  players of old ?
Tbh Barrett on his day is best in the league but thatís every few and far games ,for as many games he has won us with goals and vision,I say how many has he cost us with lack of movement/tracking back etc ,I say heís a luxury player that we canít afford to keep playing Ďbecause itís joshí  weíre in for a long battle this season so weíre going to need players to dig deep , trouble is isnt just him but 3/4 others .

Staggered to be honest......not for me., the body language on Sunday spoke volumes for me🤔 having said that I wish everyone at klfc the very best 👏🏼👏🏼
Feel the same TW got us there abouts and MH got us over the line , but for me didnít ring the changes when needed and followed much as what TW done same subs and no plan B .. yes Iíll obviously get behind him and heís got the contacts to build a Winning side , but prey he makes a good start as crowds will not  come to a mid table team playing ok football .

To watch lynn week in /out obviously must be a passionate lynn fan but where will the extra 1000 today be come august?? Many of those today here for the big occasion come their next match like people mention could be at Heacham , Dowham who got promoted as well , Wisbech , fakenham.. etc because some people just like football and have no alliance to any side just a fact that football is only football whatever the level and to take in the factor alot cheaper to if itís just a Saturday afternoon thing  . Is worrying how much itíll go up .. I for one would think twice at £19/20 to stand

It's a funny old game.
I was looking forward to Kings Lynn v Chester next weekend.
Brackley did well to win there and certainly ripped up the form book when you look at their recent results at the end of the season!
Anyway , to next season. Local games with Boston to look forward to and hopefully the football won't be too expensive to watch.
SC already said an increase Öthis is a big decision that has to be right as a slow start will affects ATT  some big decisions to be made to take us forward again ..
Chester , Scunthorpe, south shield , not going to be easy !

Tin hat time.   Should SC give the job to Hughes for next season or look for a more seasoned campaigner to take it on ?

Mark has done a decent job but today in the biggest game of the season he has well and truly had his pants pulled down.
Mark Hughes comes across as a nice guy but nice guys win sod all.

Címon letís have your thoughts.

For me letís start a fresh , tbh MH has done a good job but TW got us 90% there , could MH attract the players ?  , does he have a different style of more attractive play again i feel we play a lot of hoof ball which didnít work today as gold was awol ( look how quick kiddy was in attacking )  Iím with a more seasoned manager with the contacts , but suppose a lot of that will be down to full or part time also letís be honest weíre going to need 6/7 or more players after a clear our or selling and is MH up to that .

I actually have a lot of sympathy for Stephen Cleeve.  Seems he has bent over backwards to support Tommy with whatever he has asked for.  This is how he is repays, being really shafted and left in the solids.   
Agree there mallard
Every time he shouted he got even this week with the new arrival,  canít understand how heís jump /jumping ship with 6 games and play offs and get us promoted to put him in shop window  :countingmoney: :countingmoney: :countingmoney: :countingmoney: :nilpoints:  sad case of todays game has become

And there was Tommy just a few weeks ago telling the media that the town and supporters needed to get behind the team! Sums up so much of what i have come to dislike about modern football. 'Badge kissing' means bugger all.
Spot on  .. money talks nowadays if thatís what he wants then let him go,  glad in someways  yea heís done well but imo but weíll cope without him imo heís seems to be losing it on and off the fieldÖ

Why do people keep talking about  IC's side. It's history, you can't compare the two different sides.  Yes we've lost our way and have done so for several weeks. However we got relegated under IC and have a better side this year in my opinion. Team selection not always correct but we are still in with a chance! maybe!  :scarf:
Cully side would whip a TW side any day of the week . Nothing against Tommy heís done well but personally heís not a happy man and would be very surprised if heís here next season . Heís getting like cully though and not changing when all can see itís not happening for some players on the pitch .

Think York brought in excess of 1000 supporters not 24 you have to compare like for like. Don't think recruitmet has been poor ists trying to replace the injured players has been poor however do think goalkeeper last night was good.

Spot on York did bring a 1,000 but there is still the little matter of a 1200 differential between the two top of the table clashes.    I still stand by that imho the quality of the Football was far more enjoyable to watch under Culverhouse than it is under Widderington.  You may well disagree.

Absolutely spot on mallard .. people moaned at cullys play and no plan B but imo TW is in the same category now if we hadnít had such a good start our true positioning at the way weíre playing is a mid table side ,TW is no tactical genius like IC and neither is his recruitmentÖ. How many of this side can play National league if we was to go up ? 4/5 Iíd say

Last night Fylde closed our back line down to stop us playing out so we were left with the option of the keeper knocking long balls up to Gold, who won his fair share but then we are looking at playing off 2nd ball scraps.

Recruitment wise, pre-season was ok but the like you I think the players brought in since have been somewhat substandard and not anywhere near the quality of the ones we have lost.

Gold is the Clubs leading goalscorer and you guys want him benched ?  The way you are talking anyone would think Tommy doesnít know what he is doing.

You didnít come on here and say that when our leading scorer was dropped v Darlington and Doncaster Bosto   to name a few , forums about peopleís opinions and and like freelancer says we need to utilise others as lately weíre predicable .
