General Discussion / Everything is in place.
« on: June 27, 2016, 02:58:44 PM »
Just 12 days away from the first friendly and it is looking like all systems go for the Promotion challenge.

New Owner who is prepared  to support the manager with a decent budget.
Not one but 2 strikers with proven track records that we haven't had since Defty was shown the door.
A returning midfield player who will go box to box all day.
A wide player with pace who can score goals
A Youth Set-Up finally in place to form a full production line (U16's & U18's) to the Reserves and finally to the first team.
A return to the feel good factor among the fans that has been missing for a few years
An Owner who says he intends to embrace the playing Public and make them feel very much part of the Club
Improved catering  at the Ground to include, not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 ( yes FOUR) Chefs from the George Hotel at Cley
A Full Time First Team manager who is out there this summer working on the commercial side.

Have I missed anything ?

General Discussion / When are the fixtures out ?
« on: June 13, 2016, 02:02:57 PM »
I seem to recall the Fixtures for the Pro game are due out in the next week or so.  When do they get released for Our League ?

Must admit I am really looking forward to the new season. Have not looked forward to season more since when Carl Heggs took over.  I have no doubt Heggs would have taken us to the play-offs that season, and all on a reduced budget to the Previous years.  With the new Owner pledging his support to Setch and with signings like Mettam The season must be viewed as one where we have a real chance of Promotion. 

Exciting times ahead for The Good Ship Linnet.

General Discussion / Pre season Friendlies

I see we have a couple arranged with Boston and the Lowestoft

General Discussion / New signings
« on: May 20, 2016, 07:49:52 AM »
I am sure Setch is real busy on the blower chasing new signings etc.  Anyone heard any whispers ?  By my reckoning from the squad that ended 2015/16  we are so far -2 ( Hurst and Mulready)

I also noticed a good few Non League are already starting to announce pre-season friendlies ( seems Bloody early to me)  any News on that front for us ?

General Discussion / Thurlow Nunn Increase
« on: May 16, 2016, 12:37:31 PM »
Seems like the Thurlow Nunn are desperate for Clubs judging by the finishing position of some that have been accepted in for next season.  Also Interesting to see not one Club from The Anglian Com is coming in but 2 from the Essex League are.

I am sure it is sad for Backie to see his old Club being relegated  back down to Div One of the Combination.  Will He still be sending players out there on loan, despite the drop in standard ?

General Discussion / Starting 11
« on: May 16, 2016, 09:35:50 AM »
Who would be your starting 11 from all the players that have been at the Club since we reformed ?

Alex Street  would sure have the Number shirt, as No serious competition on that one, with really only Danny Gay having the shirt ahead of Pedro for a year or so.

How about the rest ?

Also How about the Worst Player to pull on a Lynn shirt in this period ?

Lets have your thoughts

General Discussion / The one that got away... Luckily
« on: May 12, 2016, 11:51:52 AM »
Saw this on the Boston fans forum about Robbins.  Looks like Setch dodged a bullet with this one.

Rumours now afoot that he's accusing DG of being a racist.
I did think RR was a little unbalanced, but I reckon he's got a massive chip on both shoulders, so maybe not!
He must be running out of clubs in this area that he hasn't piŽŽed off yet.

News of former Linnets / Robert Taylor

Former Linnets Manager is the newly appointed Boss of Swaffham Town

General Discussion / Old Chestnut

Why is it Lynn can only pull in 350 for a home game these days ?  There must be reasons for this.  We have a Local Owner, a Local (General) manager, Local Coaching Staff and a Local team Team, all of which some have been wishing for.  There is natural progression from U18's to Reserve team to First team. The Squads are all Young and improving, No Big Money being thrown about.  The First team has been up challenging for a play off place.  The Club has a fantastic facility at The Walks, No Debts, peppercorn rent to pay.

To me so many things now the club has going for it, yet the people wont come.  Ok Lets have some serious suggestions as to why.  Once The problem can be identified then the soloution should be much easier to find.

Be interesting to hear from the people from within the Club who post on here, Like Tazzy, Backie New Recruit etc, and get their  Views on the issues.

One of the greatest Footballers to have graced this earth.

General Discussion / Who can see being shown the door ?
« on: March 21, 2016, 09:46:25 AM »
With the season on the run down,  I guess Setch's thoughts will be drifting toward next season and who wont be required. 

I can only see minimal changes with maybe a couple or 3 being let go.  Jack Friend would be one. David Bridges, has he got another season at this level in him ?  Also with John Sands coming in will Setch want to keep all of Sands, Steveo, Hilliard, Mulready and  Edge   ?  If one of those has to go then my Money would be on Sam.  Not forgetting young Frohawk should be worth considering next season, if he still with us.

Anyone got thoughts ?  Or would You stick with what we have ?

General Discussion / So Its all over bar the shouting.
« on: March 21, 2016, 09:39:29 AM »
With the season play-off hopes now firmly at an end, what would we like to see in the final weeks of the season ?

Will Setch go for position and play his strongest team each game ? Or could have a real good look at the likes of  Edge and Fryatt Junior, even give Friend a decent run to see if he wants to include him next season.  Maybe even bring some of the Young Un's in from the Reserve and give them a little sighter by sticking one on the bench each game.  Players likes Frohawk, couple of others that Tazzy mentioned as well, even Setch's own lad.  All could benefit by having a game on the first team bench. 

General Discussion / League finishing position
« on: March 15, 2016, 11:56:56 AM »
Looking at the league table the play-off places look out of reach.  Leamington victory tonight will see them move into 5th 9 points clear of the Linnets with a much superior goal difference as well, then that's as good as 10 Points. 

I think the best we can really hope for is 7th, but what a good season that will have been and the perfect spring board for next season.  I just hope Setch doesn't let the season drift away, as happened last season.  It would be good to finish the season on a high, add one or 2 to the squad during the summer.  Could we then be looking at Operation Promotion for 2016/17 ?

Are they coming back to be involved a the Club ? I heard this, not quite from the Horses mouth but from someone very much in the know at the Club that they will be very much back in harness with the Youth set up at that Club.  Exciting times.
