Why surprised Paul ? Ex League, Much bigger club with a much bigger fanbase supporting a team at the business end of the League with something to play for.

What were the figures for last night ?   If the Club isnít getting decent streaming figures Paul, what would you put it down to ?

The academy is very much in its infancy and remains to be seen how fruitful it may become in years to come. 

I guess itís down to facilities, quality of coaching and general pull.   Norwich have a hellva scouting system in place in Norfolk so that is a real big fish to compete with.

Beard, are you involved in the Lynn system or anywhere else?  Maybe you could tell us some of the strengths and indeed weaknessís of what is being attempted.

Could make for an interesting insight.

That was not what I meant KES80.
What was meant was that because there had been no comments on the result that a draw against the 2nd place team was obviously felt not worthy of comment by usual posters but continuous comments regarding substitutes is.

Iím a usual poster Norm. My comments last night

Surely where ever a youngster has been has added something to his development ?
Maybe in Dwyerís case the big development push didnít come at Colley, as he was released?  It might be suggested that the  year at Lynn was the one that really pushed him on.

I think most if not all fans are delighted by the fighting spirit shown by IC and his remaining players.

I must admit when the news broke that we were going to carry on and players furloughed I did fear the worst.  I thought we would be on the rough end of a few dickings.

Itís great to be proven so wrong

Must be 3-4 weeks since SCís last podcast.  Would have thought he had plenty to discuss and give the fans an update.  Or has he given up on them ?

I think that it is now absolutely essential for everyone who wants KLTFC to survive and thrive to pull together and not find fault with anyone whether itís the manager his assistant or the owner.

As Marvin Lee Aday once sang.   Two outta free ainít bad

Canít be a journey they are looking forward to.  So maybe, just maybe we can nick something here.

What sort of team and indeed bench will we be able to field ?   Wouldnít be surprised to see a new face.

Bit like Football, in short money.    Britain is 4th on the list of Countries for rider priorities.   Poland basically dictates where a rider can ride.   Including the top UK riders

Have you learnt nothing from Buster ?.   Speedway teams are run on riders averageís.   So no one team can sign all the top riders.   Not that British League Speedway now has anything like a top rider available to them.

In fairness Dilligaf Clubs with owners who have bottomless pockets will know no end to get what they want ( while they are on the purse strings).  We canít hope to compete at those levels.

So many ex League Clubs who are desperate to get back to former glories are always going to hold the upper hand in terms of what is on offer.   A wage  cap wonít work either, as you suggest.

However these big Non League Giants canít sign everything that moves, so maybe a way around it is to limit the number of players a Club can run with?

Reading/listening to Paul Cook ( new Ipswich Manager). He is looking to trim his 29 man squad going forward.  Not possible to keep that number of players happy and doesnít make for a happy camp with so many not involved every game.

If that is indicative of all clubs in the lower Divisionís, then it could well be there will be a surplus of players that are needed.   That should certainly lower players expectations.   Even more so if players are looking at Non League Football
As a 2nd job.

8k a week playing budget would bring the annual budget down to a little 300k a season.  Much more manageable I would suggest for Clubs of our size.

In SCís podcast with the Dover Chairman.  The Dover main man said that 80-85% of a Clubs expenditure at National League level went on player wages.   With SC saying previously it was costing in excess of a 100k a month to run Kings Lynn.  Then those savings could be massive.

If the Chairman is hoping for players at £400 a week thence sure  you are right KES about about Marriott and maybe a few more

Definitely no shame in that result.  I did fear the worst but yet again The Manager got a team out to do us proud
