General Discussion / Re: War Chest appeal.

Just had a listen to some of Mr Cleeves latest podcasts.

In a previous podcast he stated the players wages would be around 20-30% less next season.  Now he is saying the fans need to raise 50k to keep Adam Marriott at the club.

Anyone care to try and shed any light on that ?

I see the EFL meeting to finally decide On promotion/relegation issues etc has now been put back to next Tuesday.

The general feeling is they will go with the normal relegation and promotion through the Leagues.   Think we can assume the National League will follow and adopt the same structure ( though there is no relegation out of the National or promotion into it).

I read somewhere that the FA pay the EFL a fee of £6m each season for the 2nd promotion spot from the National League to the EFL.   With the demise of Bury I wonder if they will still pay that for this season ?   

Money does talk, even at National League level.

No MA I wonít be indulging Mr Cleeve in his hobby.  He has decided he wants to run the Club on a sole basis.   So Iím quite happy to let him .  His choice, but it seems he wants it both ways.  He could very quickly raise 50k or even 100k.   Individuals or even that Nasty Trust could buy into the club.   Rather than yet another begging bowl being put out.

If the Chairman needs to raise some cash then why not offer an Individual (s) or the Trust equity in the Club in exchange for the 50k.   Or is he know expecting the fans of the club to further sponsor his hobby of running a Football Club.

Darlington a fan owned club were set a target of raising a 100k (A third of next seasons budget) in the month of May.  They did it with a week to spare. With 500 fans contributing.

Not sure what Darloís average gate is but I wouldnít think itís much different to Lynnís.    Will be interesting to see if Mr Cleeve has the same level of support as an individual owner compared to a fan owned Club.

Likewise I would go for Fryatt over Ward everyday of the week.  Thought big Tom looked way off it when he was included at the end of the season.  Then again we donít know the extent of Ryanís injury. If it has cost him a yard then yes it would make sense.  A yard he could Ill afford to lose.

I see there is an experienced centre back just released by Lincoln. Ex Norwich Jason Shackell. Food for thought if nothing else.

As for Adam Marriott, who can blame him for keeping his options open after notching 30 goals.  If he stays with us letís hope it was the Adam Marriott we saw and loved prior to the Walsall deal falling through and not the Adam Marriott who Boston let go and the player who looked low on confidences from Feb onwards.

How many times does this lot kick the can down the Road.   Ainít it good they donít have any really important decisions to make! Begs the question are they really fit for purpose?

Stephen Cleeve deals with the relegation promotion issue in his latest podcast.   He is doing another one on Monday.  Which I guess will deal with the EFL decision.

Mr Cleeve is quoted as saying that the clubs in Div 2 are voting on it. Apparently 10 clubs are for no relegation as things stand at the moment. Think MR Cleeve says the 10 clubs need three more to vote on it to push it through.  Looks as though it might be close.

When Lynn went pop under Ken  Bobbins we were given a two level drop in standard on reforming.   Step 3 to Step 5.  The season before to had dropped from step 2 to step 3 because of ground grading.  Thatís what my memory of what happened.

Tony I used the 20/30% figure as that was the figure used by Stephen Cleeve on one of his podcast.  So I assumed (rightly or wrongly ) that would be the criteria Stephen would be working to within his own club. 

B&G the drums are always beating my friend.  Either that or Iím psychic.   I have a feeling that at least one player will be thinking he can get more money elsewhere not less. Letís see if he is right.

Think itís only Kelly, Clunan, Jarv, Richards, Marriot and Gash left to sign ( or not).   Be interesting to see who stays and who goes on 20/30% less money.

With a reported 1400 players out of contract in the Pro game at the end of June the Non League market could be Ďfloodedí with players.  Can see it being a case of tight, quality sides at budget prices.  Hopefully part of the savings will be passed on to Joe Public to encourage people back through the gate,  at the appropriate time.

One other item Mr Cleeve mentioned was theft from the club by person/S who enjoyed full access and who are no longer involved.

Listening ( nearly 2 hours long) to some of Stephen Cleeveís latest podcast he is suggesting that player contracts will be discounted by between 20-30% next season.  He also was suggesting that there might only be 10 home games in the season ( the reason why he wonít take fans money for season tickets) in a very Limited season.   Reading various articles it seems there wonít much be much, if any lower level Football In this Country before Christmas.

I seem to recall the Chairman saying the Lynn players are not expecting wages until the season gets under way.   So is that much of a big deal to start putting the squad together ?

After watching the sterile fayre served up from the Bundesliga at the weekend I wouldnít get to excited about the return of Premier League Football.

More concerned about my grand kids going back to school and my daughter as a teacher.

He did but he came back wearing a syrup to recruit Dave as his executive car cleaner.   Sadly Rodders couldnít go as he had a record for smoking that Jamaican Old Holborn.
