No one really picked up the mantle once Hearle moved on.   Was a big gap that never got filled.  More itís all been played at.

Be interesting to see how many will rock up for Tuesday.  Maybe a new signing would whet the appetite of a few.  Maybe the much anticipated striker from Oxford ?

We certainly need a few bodies to be back fit as we canít go with just 2 subs again. 

Be good to think we could pull in a 1,000 but have my doubts.

Going for a hard worked for 1-1

However unpalatable Mall is right in that step 1 probably isn't a sustainable level for KLTFC

Careful Tony, you'll have the people involved with Clubs media crawling all over you and accusing you of all sorts of things if you post things like that.

Of course, it won't matter that you're 100% correct.

I would hope the club's media department have better things to worry about than a post on this forum.  Also, the issue isn't one of being right or wrong, it is actions that matter, unfortunately very few of us are in a position to be able to take meaningful actions

Donít think thatís stopped the owner or indeed the media dept in the past.  They seem to be very sensitive about certain posts and posters on here.

I agree you would hope they all have bigger issues to deal with, but...

Another way forward could be for SC to get other directors in with him to share the load.

The aim surely is to greatly improve the commercial side of the club and give the playing budget a real chance to compete at whatever level we find ourselves.    The Chairman putting out a begging post for a match day sponsor for 4 days later speaks volumes to where that side of the business is at. 

The Club has a massive FOC asset that they should also be using. This all sounds like a broken record as this is something people on here have been banging on about for years.

Even then who knows if it will be enough, but got to be worth a shot.

Think thatís a common theme with most Non League Clubs and maybe those in League Two and one.

People will always turn out in decent numbers when things are going well.  I donít think it follows that the higher up the pyramid a Club goes that bigger gates follow, if the team is non successful on the pitch.

Thing is KES we need a striker to come in and hit the ground running. Not sure I agree with someone who is around in 24 months as unless we can find a goalscorer soon then who knows where we will be in 2 years time.

It seems kinda crazy that the Chairman borrowed circa £500k to keep us at the level yet he is not prepared to shell out 800/900 quid a week until May to get a striker in to hopefully achieve the same goal.

The area I was more thinking of KES was a loaner from Norwich and or Ipswich.  For example hearing that James Norwood as been told to keep away from the Ipswich training ground.   Or an U23 player who the Clubs want to get some first hand experience of some muck and nettles stuff in the National League.

Born,  Iím sure you are enjoying the current level the Club is playing at.  Judging by the number of home fans turning up itís a bit marmite I would suggest.

The trouble comes with a club like Lynn starts Ďpunchingí  it only has one natural conclusion.  Maybe you think a couple of years at this level and running up a debt of a million quid is worth all pain that will follow.

Kings Lynn has a natural level to be playing at that is sustainable.  I would suggest that level is NOT step one.

Leading goalscorer in the Thurlow Nunn is .... Joe Taylor for Wroxham.  What other clubs do you suggest might be hiding a gem in East Anglia ?  Lowestoft and Jake Reed maybe ? Shaun Bammant /Toby Hilliard at Dereham ?

Itís not that easy KES

Born did you not enjoy the times under Buster with Setch in charge ?  Did a decent job as I recall.  Two promotions semi final of the FA Vase.

Football was played at Lynn before Cleeve and Will continue being played long after he has gone.

Seemed to be in reply to a question on why only two subs

Looks like the  owner didnít know what was going with regard to the reason why his Club went with only 13 players.

Seem to have some kind of hack on my account going on -not sure how!  Thanks to the 42 fans who supported the team today it was a Herculean effort.  Please donít think we are withholding information - I would never do that.  Sometimes Chairmen also find themselves in the dark

Or either of the two young lads at Wisbech.   Maybe IC is sending a message ?

The budget isnít there because the owner misjudged the fans and number who would turn out and how much they would be prepared to pay.  Commercial activity is poor, as it seems to have been for sometime.  So without the £500k loan money where would we be ?  Once that is burnt through, then what ?
