Johnson signed up for Brexit, as leader. Covid came along and he hadnít a clue what to do.Then again I canít see any Tory Minsters or indeed backbenchers pushing themselves forward to grab that hot seat. Normally when a Leader makes a Horlicks of something there people waiting in the wings to jump all over it.

I wonder with Covid why no one wants the job.

Nigel Farage is more Tory than most Conservative

I thought Clubs stated that unless something was in place to protect them, going forward then they wouldnít start the League ?

Must be cause for concern as Lynn supporters were told they wouldnít get any monies refunded so if in doubt donít buy a season ticket

Reading in todayís NLP it seems the likes of Stockport, Chesterfield, Wrexham and Notts Co are going full steam ahead in chasing a return to the EFL.  Seems no worries on their part if the season gets to a stage to run without fans.

Hopefully the League has something in place for this scenario and that big clubs donít force the smaller fish to complete the season come what may.

Think thatís taking it the extreme Dilly.  We are in Non League Football so have to live in that World and not comparing to the likes of Man City or Barca.

Junior showed up against a decent Norwich side for his strength in holding it up allowing people to get in support of him.   Once we start playing friendlies and League games against players of around his level then we can judge what else he can bring to the party.

Will also be interesting to see what the wing backs will offer in terms of us getting forward.  Still see King as the lynch pin to make it all happen.

What odds would you put on another lockdown come Autumn Dilly ?  As with all things Boris I doubt we even have half the full picture.   The truth will out. As they say

Sorry Dilly but only can say what you see.  ( bit like Roy Walker on Catchphrase).   No exciting slippery Nipsters who were running Premier League players off their feet.

It was a friendly, very little physical contact of any intensity. Iím sure when we start meeting teams of our standard ( NL) and we have had a full pre season you will see the patterns of play emerge. The two wing backs will get forward more, we will retain the ball for longer periods etc. 

The lad Junior did hold it up well allowing others to get close to him in support, but being a Premier League outfit Norwich ( as you would expect) had the lions share of the ball.  Junior was not being hit by 60 yard howitzers but balls played into his feet.  He is a strong lad.

Letís see how the friendlies progress, but on last night there looked some positive signs.  Like you I think Kingy is going to be key for us.

Thatís a bit one sided B&G.   Others higher up the food chain have to take some responsibility.  Not that they will of course.

Very much liked the look of the two new boys up top.  Could be a good combo.  One with his strong hold up play and the big lad Gold looks a right handful. 

Also liked the link up play Colman and King.  There looks some mileage in that partnership.  The two wing backs didnít get to many opportunities to venture forward as they were mainly tied up with defensive duties.  Then again we wonít be meeting this level of opposition in the National League.

Negative for me was the centre back Fernandaze.   Distribution was poor, didnít look comfortable on the ball and was looking to knock it long each time.  Looks an accident waiting to happen.   Of course all based on bits of one game.  Have to factor in that Lynn have only been back in training a few days.

Just seen the Thurlow Nunn League fixture list.  It has been front loaded in the expectation of yet another lockdown of Non League Football.

They have front loaded it that much that half of the fixtures will be played by the end of Nov.  All team will have played each other at least once.

I wonder what provisions have been made at National League level for the non attendance of fans ?

Not sure how many starts King made at Halifax but seem to recall there were certain games where he was on the bench, despite having a really decent season.  The games he did play I think he was withdrawn in a good few of them.

Well thatís what my memory tells me.   IF Lynn can get a fit and focussed King this season then they have a hellva weapon in their armoury
