Westland donít forget shirt sponsors.  Up to 32 officials from each club. I seem to recall the owners Young  son sitting beside his father live on tv during the opening game.  What essential role was he carrying out ?

I guess you could join just before kick off then cancel your membership at the end of the game.  They canít hold any details for once you have cancelled.

Good marketing from the online betting company.   Also a good marketing idea for the Club, if the sponsorship is based on a % arrangement rather than an up front fee.

Like there isnít enough online betting Companies out there.

I think everyone accepted that as a Club at this level we needed to go with two decent  keepers.  Box ticked.

Then comes the problem.  How do you keep two class keepers happy.  Unique position.  Can only use one.  Obviously IC and Bastock thought the young lad was the better keeper ( jury out on that one).  Itís there opinion that counts.  They went with Mair.  So what do you do with Street ?   There lies the rub.   From the first game when he wasnít in the 16 then the result was only going to be a parting of the ways.

Sad to see him go.  Great service to the Club, but players move on.   The fans have backed IC every step of the way and he has delivered.   So have to believe he has made the right call on this one.

Street has gone from, arguably the no 1 Keeper in the NLN to not even being the number one keeper at Kings Lynn.

No doubting that Archie Mair is a quality keeper, but we will
Be a stepping stone in his career while Pedro could have been at the Club well into his 30ís.

Managerís are paid to make decisions.   If we end up back in the NLN next with no Mair and no Street, will it look that wise a decision ?

With 7 clubs from the National League now areas that are in tier 3 lockdown, how long can the League continue without Clubs being tested ?   

I see FC Halifax v Wealdstone is off  this Saturday because of an outbreak in the Halifax squad

So we go again Saturday.  Are we capable of stopping the rot and breaking this losing streak?

McAuley back in for Smith ? Jarv given a break ?

Malcolm has been fine supporter of Kings Lynn.  Never shy to dip his hand in his pocket.  Maybe this is his reward.

Sometimes nothing is more important than football ( to some).

IC is very much for keeping the ball and working the opposition.   However I seem to recall there have been times when he has opened the first 30 mins of games by going more direct to gain the upper hand.  Then once the Ďbattle has been won then we have switched To more of our normal game.

Are we now too predictable and teams at this higher level are finding us easy to pick off

Non League so are you saying Clubs should be able to continue with no testing or that the Plug should be pulled on Football where testing isnít financially viable ?   Maybe to be re-started when we hopefully come out of this latest spike of cases.

Gordon do you not think that 3 Home games per month would generate 84Kís worth of income per month at the Walls ?   Gates of 2,000 Per game at say £15 ( nett) Average plus all the add onís.  Must equate to some where around that figure.

Itís costing in excess of a 100k per month to run the Football Club but the Chairman is quite happy to stump up the difference.

Sounded very much like IC was taking one for the team.   Saying heís not been good enough, heís letting the players down, he needs to do better. 

Wonder if he is rethinking His play play play strategy?   Maybe teams are picking us off too easy in transition. 

Seems a lot of our defensive issues are going to be solved with that lad coming in from Sligo.   No pressure there then.

IC has remained loyal to his core players.  When we missed out in the play offs he stuck with the core of the side ( quite righty as it turned out). When we went up to the NLN again he stuck with the core of the team ( again quite rightly).  Now we have jumped yet another level again he has stuck with core of the players that got us there.

Now maybe ( just as a suggested). That core have now been found out as just simply not up to playing At this level.

12 quid is the price set for streaming.  Why would opposing Clubs want to pay more than the ticket price ?   
 
It seems itís only the Corn Exchange thatís charging punters to watch.  You have said there are tickets available and people can pay on the door.   What does that say
