General Discussion / Who would own a football club!
« on: January 29, 2021, 08:35:23 AM »
https://www.lynnnews.co.uk/news/saturday-could-end-up-being-our-last-home-game-of-the-season-linnets-chairman-stephen-cleeve-9154597/


Have to feel for SC.   All the money and effort he has put into getting this season up and running only to be shafted by the NL.    The fallout from all of this could be massive.

1. BT Sports sponsorship package
2. National League risking losing promotion places to the Football League
3. Running costs for the club from now until Aug with no income.
4.  Sponsors may or may not wanting their money back.
5. Season ticket holders to offer refunds to.
6.  Damage to the goodwill of the League and indeed the clubs going forward.

Take my hat off to Stephen Cleeve a real kick in the guts, and it wonít end here.

General Discussion / Stockport at home Tues night. POSTPONED

Games coming thick and fast.  Time to move on from Saturdayís defeat and look forward to Tuesday.

Interesting that despite sitting 4th the League Stockport have sacked their Manager, Jim Gannon.   Looks a very strange decision, on the surface.    Maybe a good time to play them at home.

Team.... Result ? 

Dilly, where are you ? Letís be Avin you.

Have we got enough Tricky, Slippy, Silky Nipsters in the squad to get something out of this one ?

A winnable game for us after taking 5 points from our last 3 games.

Fancy for us for at least a point.

What do others things result and team wise.

General Discussion / Eastleigh away. Tues night
« on: January 18, 2021, 08:27:19 AM »
After Saturdayís disappointing result a chance to bounce right back with 3 points up for grabs at 16th in the table Eastleigh.

This is the first of a run of 7 games in 3 weeks,  5 of which are on the road.   

Big changes I guess from the team that started Saturday and Iím sure we will hear the big reaction quote being trotted out ( again).

2-2 draw.   As for the team I think thatís for Dilly to advise us.   Be sure though it will be packed full of slippery Nipsters

General Discussion / Is it time to call a halt ?

With the Country in the eye of the Covid storm and games at National League being cancelled left right centre, would it make sense to draw a line under this season or at the very least suspend Football at the only levels where non League Football is still being played. ?

No fans likely to be allowed to watch games anytime soon.  Money to run the game, seemingly in short supply and what monies are available look likely to be in the form of loans.

What do others think ?

Games are going to come think and fast.   Next  up the side who came up with us this season, via the play offs.  Certainly started the season with a bang and up their in the play off places.

So does IC go again with the format that has grabbed us two well deserved draws against decent opposition or does he rotate it ?  Given that we have a heavy programme of games and a big 21 man squad.

Only one man can really answer this.   So Dilly will be go defensive line up or try and stick it to them with those slippery Nipsterís ?

General Discussion / Notts County. Boxing Day
« on: December 23, 2020, 08:39:25 AM »
Who would have thought it a few short years back that we would be playing a League game against a club like This ?

Ok odds  are against us but after holding top of the League Torquay to a goalless draw and then going away on a miserable Tuesday to record a comfortable Trophy win.   Plus the added advantage of having a 1400 crowd behind us, then we might just cause a little upset here.

Team v Torquay or Team v Alfreton. Or maybe a bit of both ?

General Discussion / Dover at home Saturday
« on: November 18, 2020, 01:12:54 PM »
After Tuesdays fine away win, will IC go with the same again ?

McFadden could be onboard bu then.  Richards and Power might be back from injury.  Good also to see Gash and Jones taking part in the pre match warm up at Barnet.

The squad is certainly showing some real strength in depth.

Dover got a 5-1 dicking on Tuesday.  While no games are easy we have got to fancy 3 points from this one.   Table could make pleasant reading come Saturday night.   

What a difference a week can make

General Discussion / Barnet away Tuesday
« on: November 14, 2020, 08:02:17 PM »
Thankfully we move on quickly from Saturdayís disaster.   IC says he is looking for a reaction.   Midfield and even up top he has options.   Looking at the back 5 he has little to no options to change things around with only Smith to possibly come in.   Otherwise he has to rely on the same players who threw the towel in at Sutton in the backline.

Be interesting to see how we set up.  Maybe have less of an attacking option and go for a hard to beat line up.

Thoughts ?

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 ?
