The article seemed to lack SCís normal bravado.  It came across as its all the fanís fault that they are not turning up in sufficient numbers.  Surely this has always been the case.?

Mr Cleeve came in with big ambitions. He knows from his time in charge what the gate receipts are going to look like.  It was always going to mean him making up the shortfall.  The downside of the single benefactor model. 

As for getting a Benefactor in, who would be up for sticking a boat load of cash into the Club for SC to continue to run it in its current form ? That would be madness

Read SCís EDP Column this morning where once again he was bemoaning the lack of numbers coming through the gate.  Surely he has to be happy with a gate of 800 ?   I would suggest thatís not bad for a Club struggling at the wrong end of the table charging top dollar.

If the gates arenít enough to pay for this level of Football and sC seems to have thrown the towel in with regard to commercial activity.  Then whatís the the alternative other than SC having to fund it from his own pocket ?

Well that was a late winner, calmly tucked away by Cybluski.   Excellent 3 points on the road.  Strange League this.  We now sit 5th bottom yet only 4 points outside the play off zone.  Go figure !

With AL so far bringing in only a couple of young loaners it would seem he is content with the squad he has to work with.   In truth I would have expected him to shake things up a bit more.

Results for sure have improved under Adam, but after his opening 6 games we still find ourselves in the drop zone.

I get that we have a few injuries ( goes with the territory).  Just not quite getting who these injured players would replace when fit ?   Apart from Barrett the others wouldnít be guaranteed starts, would they ?

Good point away today if my maths are right out of the possible last 5 games out of a possible 15 points we have got 12 points Iíll take that all day, it seems the new Manager as stopped the rot onward and upward

Malc what set of results have you been looking at?  Under AL we have taken 8 points out of a possible 18.  Still not a bad return but points gained have been from teams around us.   We are still in a relegation spot.

I agree Tony the media side is all back to hit and miss.  Itís like most things at the Club.  Commercial side, Media.   In fairness SC running a one man show he maybe has more important issues to deal with , cultivating the investment opportunities that he has on the table.

Have to think Gash and Sports are overachieving.  Big money backer gone, Manager like Dean gone.  Factor in them being a part time club and running on a low budget with gates averaging around 350.

Should we really be happy coming away with just a point ? Just asking

Important game Saturday.  After taking 7 points from the last 5 games feel itís important to get something from this one.  Canít think itís going to be a pretty game but now feel we have the resolve to grind out games and get some kind of return.

Interesting the ownership model back then was basically Saddleton and Alcock.  I seem to recall this was followed by a single ownership model in John Dolomites.  Who were Next in line after he went ? And before Bobbins took over. Seem to recall there were a few Directors in situ on his watch but maybe only him and Chinn who really ran the show.

This all was then followed by Buster Chapmanís family, so really single ownership.  Then of course SC with yet another same ownership model.

Thanks for that Steve.  Very interesting.  Any idea who made up the Lynn Board of Directors in this day ?  I guess Merlin was Chair.

Seem to recall Brian Clough enjoyed his evening on a couple of levels.  I wonder what the appearance money was like back in those days ?

There looks a few rough ones in the next block of 10 games.  PíBoro Sports and Rushall are both down there with Lynn so have to look at target 3/4 points from those games. Will be interesting to see where we are in the League when the Calendar flips over to 2024.

So Dilly what you are saying is Pep has the same game face in front of the cameraís as he has in the dressing room ?  I would suggest when Wolves turned them
Over a few weeks back there would have been more than a 2/3 words spoken all without any sign of a smirk.
