With Scunny getting knocked out by Boston today could that spell the end of Jimmy Deans tenure at Glansford Park ?  If so maybe one or two players there of interest.

Can’t see em queuing up for this one.   Surprised the remit doesn’t include organising and hosting summer concerts at The Walks. :laughcry:

Thought we should have a new thread for players either coming to the Club, rumoured to be coming to the Club or players we would like to see coming to Club.

Just to kick things off.  How’s about Central midfielder, currently at Peterborough Sports. …. Josh McCammon.  He falls into at least one of those three categories.

Can you really see Taylor and Coulson playing as a 4 ?  They wouldn’t want to leave to much space in behind .  Need to sign a decent 6 if they do go with a 4

That’s hardly anything new.   I think that conversation has been happening amongst many people from the early days of Cleeve having his feet under the table.   Only have to look at the high turnover of backroom staff he has gone through.   Have things got any better ? More likely got worse.

It’s all seat of the pants stuff.  Maybe best for Lakeland to just concentrate on the playing side.  That should be enough for him to be concerned about as a paid employee.

Gateshead thrown out of the National League play offs by the EFL because they don’t have at least 10 years left on their ground lease

Certainly one to forget this one.   In the end it was job done.  AL has an important couple of months ahead in terms of recruitment.   

Which of the Lynn owned players would you keep for next season ?

Jones
McFadden
Hargreaves
Walker ( a given)
Margetts
Crowe
Stephens
Hughes

Jones as back up to Dixon-Hodge, Hargreaves, Margetts and Crowe.

If the budget allows Stephens as Hughes as squad players.

Need someone like Barrows (right back who can also play centre half) plus two new centre halves, 2 new midfielders and a couple of forwards as a minimum, I would think.

All need to be hard working fit individuals with experience at this level. If they have a bit of flair, that's a bonus. Times have moved on........Bowles, Marsh, Currie etc, although fun in the day wouldn't get in a starting eleven these days unless their fitness and work rate improved dramatically .
Any player who has the required fitness level for NL and great flair to go with it , will be in the EFl.......we have to be realistic in terms of the football we expect, I feel.......the only exception would be the inducement of a huge budget and wages to attract EFL players in (Wrexham for example).

Listening to AL post match interview from Saturday.  It very much sounded like Dixon Hodge might not be part of the squad next season.  Or am I reading to much into what was said ?

With drastic work being carried out on the pitch ( think it was Paul on here who suggested this) and with a summer recruitment by Lakeland then there seems no reason why we shouldn’t expect a more ‘attractive’ brand of Football.

If SC still has his ambition of EFL football then we need to have a budget toward to the upper end of this league.   With Joe’s money, a decent surface and AL first full season then the expectation levels should be set at ‘very high’   Just need the stars to align

That’s spot on Linnets.  We have players who are playing at this level for a reason.  In turn we also have a Manager who is at this  level for the same reason.

I saw Clifford was back in for the last game.  Was that cos we were low on defensive numbers or his loan spell having run it’s course.   If Lakeland can get Barrow in then Ronan is gonna struggle.  Still think we can do better if Barrow doesn’t join in the summer.

Agree  re- Hargreaves.  Really surprised TW didn’t come sniffing after him last summer.  Then again he did take Junior. Nepotism over common sense  there it would seem.

Lord, what’s your thoughts on Coulson, can he do another season at this level ?   I guess it depends who he gets partnered with.

Thanks for the info LM.  Not sure that Lakeland fancies Clifford ( was loaned out).Under contract players can still be moved on.  No point in keeping them onboard if they don’t figure in the plans.  Not sure the other two mentioned  would help you get to the play offs.   

Interesting summer.

Looking at next season the relegation from The National League and Club being promoted from step 3 are beginning to take shape.   Kiddie coming back down and Radcliffe coming up.   Will Needham Market be joining the NLN from the Southern League Central ?   That would be a tough gig for them travel wise.
