Friends of the Linnets do no where enough for supporters as they should do. Just like the club itself never any travel arranged what's the point of them?
52 seater coach half full with team and staff .

It would be interesting to know if this 100,000 black hole is a result of operating costs, or if its someone trying to recoup money spent on purchasing the Club.
Either way, and for different reasons, its very worrying!
Where has this 100,000 black hole come from??

Mr. Cleeve at the meeting Monday.
select few would know what was said then.

General Discussion / Re: HITCHIN away
« on: February 27, 2017, 12:17:02 PM »


Walks - I was also at the match. You say that Hitchin are a "decent side;" Hitchin are an excellent side! They have only lost two matches in the league since the end of August and are the best SPL team that have played at The Walks this season.

You state that the players lacked conviction and effort.

Setchell has been manager for  - what is it 7 years  - and the players clearly had a strong bond with Setchell - you can tell this by the way that his sides have played for him over the years. This strong manager/player connection cannot be underestimated. Lynn, a goal down within 2 minutes, away from home, to the best team in the league, with no: Quigley, Stevenson or Hawkins and with all the emotional turmoil of this week, looked shell-shocked and were torn apart by a step 2 challenging Hitchin.

The second half, despite conceding early on was much better. Lynn compressed the pitch and put much more pressure on the ball. In the first half, they gave Hitchin far too much time and space. Hitchin clearly had the game won and were probably not fully "at it" in the second half but Lynn clearly improved and Culverhouse was clearly giving them instructions on the pitch that were having a positive impact.

The team that played yesterday are probably 3/4 players short of being a team that can compete with the best in the SPL. Yes, they were poor for much of the game yesterday but these are human beings not machines and I defy anyone to be able to come out of a week like the one they've had at Lynn without being emotionally scathed.

They'll get over it and Culverhouse  (with the addition of 3/4 new players) will improve them.

Stan

I understand that football is all about opinions and we all see things from different perspectives - that's why the game as a whole is so wonderful!!
And just to clarify, when I called Hitchin a "decent" side, I did mean that they are a good side.

I don't dispute that Culverhouse may well get things right with the addition of 3-4 new additions

I don't dispute that some players have been "emotionally scathed" by the events of last week, but it still doesn't make an excuse for the half hearted shift that they put in yesterday - it was unacceptable.

When we lost 6-1 at home to Weymouth it was a bad day all round, but at least on that day, you could see the players were trying, it was just that nothing came off for them, yet they showed character and kept going..

For that team that wore Kings Lynn shirts yesterday, where was their own personal pride??
Pride for the club??
Respect for the fans??

It was nowhere to be seen and if that's because they are sulking because Setch has gone, it makes it even worse for me - surely they would know as players that everyone has a clean slate?? Everybody has the same opportunity to impress the new boss??

How often do we see in football when a team sacks their manager, the team responds immediately, the "honeymoon period" for the manager commences and everybody gets a lift??
I'm sure players at those clubs could also have been "emotionally scathed", yet they respond in a much better way than we did yesterday.

I see on Twitter that Culverhouse has apologised to the travelling fans and said we will never see another performance like that again.......I accept that apology and I'm looking forward to this Saturday. I'm also looking forward to how this will evolve in the future.

Please don't think this is me having a pop at you personally, because it isn't - your post was well structured and I agree with some of your points.

It was just that bloody rabble yesterday that made me so  :swear: angry!!

Onwards and upwards!!

Another ingredient in their nervy performance may have been the Culverhouse factor. It is unusual for a side to play so badly in front of a new manager; I wonder if his football status - his credentials are hugely impressive for this level  - was intimidating to the players. Add this to the other factors that I've cited and you have a cocktail for disaster.

If that is so surely it calls into question the character of some? One thing that for me has been lacking for a while is obvious leadership on the pitch to galvanise and organise when the going gets tough. The last person who consistently fulfilled that role IMO was Ross Watson, who though not the greatest player led from the front irrespective of who was wearing the armband. Too often in the recent pass when things have gone pear shaped this has resulted in certain players only showing passion through blaming one another.

Rod - I agree that there is a case for a strong leader on the pitch  - agree also about Ross Watson - he was superb in that role. With regard to finding Culverhouse an intimidating presence because of his credentials, this may have been one factor amongst many.

Some are too quick to get on the players backs at Lynn, either on here or at The Walks. These fans also need to take some responsibility. There was plenty of singing at the start of the game from the Lynn fans but it went very quiet very quickly once Hitchin had scored. This will also have a negative impact on the players.
Perhaps you should of sung . Our fans didn't sing after the 1st goal went in . There fans didn't sing at all.

If the price does go up those that are willing to pay will go those that don't wont. Perhaps those that if the price goes up wont go will maybe go and watch the reserves. Cheaper than watching the first team and you can help with there attendance, money will still go to the club?.

I can remember when most of you lot moaned about the price when we first reformed yet you still turned up. We have been paying 10 for the past 4 season (I think) Like has been said there is other teams out there that charge more than us. Cleeve could always change the price and age structure to accommodate those who don't want to pay more than 10. e.g 8-11 years pay 1 to get in. 2 to sit in the stand.

Kings Langley pitch was very poor . Everyone played well. When Jazek came on caused all sorts of problems for them. As setch has said in his interviews before . The pitch will be sorted for next season.

I hope we stay where we are and don't get relegated and next season is a far better one. Long overdue a good cup run and a good season.  We need a player like George again wonder if we could ever tempt him back. Wasn't scared off scoring outside the box either. I wonder if we had a player like him and Jacek, Jordan, Ryan,  ward,  peds,  and so on we be in top 6 never know.  Jordan and Jacek seem to link up well also Ryan and ward with Warburton cd be the same too,  we have a strong squad if all players are fit just missing that 20  goal season player.  Big money needed to get one.  I wouldn't change much off the team either I try get Danny back too. Let's look at a good striker and maybe a league above too yes lots off money but with squad we have and potential off it doing it.

We're paying 500 a week for one now, how much more should it cost at this level?
500 a week  :laughcry:
