Thatís the problem with sole ownership.  One person decides the fate of many.  Many felt we should have taken the 12 point deduction and not lumbered the club with over half a million debt, but itís done now.

Very good B&G.  :Sherlock:  If only him or someone like him would jump onboard.

I think thatís a decent summing up of the situation 10 days into the new season.   IC has put together a squad, with the budget given that will be the match of maybe 12 clubs in this League.   Iím sure the squad will get tweaked as the season progresses.

Off the field it still looks one big mess.   How many teams at our level run without having a CM?   SC said the money coming through the gate is the bulk of the income.  So the Clubs future is in the hands of the fans.   Whatís that 1100 people?

The fans donít seem to be buying into it.  Monday, a Bank Holiday,  attractive opposition, us on the back of a great result Saturday.  The weather not warm enough to send fans heading for the beach yet still not a great turn out from the fans.

If this is the way itís going to be then once SC has burned through the loan money has he the ability to carry on funding it himself ?  If not then what does the future hold ?

For the life of me I cannot understand why SC doesnít bring in some extra fire power behind the scenes.  Someone (S) who can offer the financial support needed.

You werenít necessary wrong Malc.  All you were doing was expressing an opinion.   As we all do.   

Gash and Marriott, who knows what they would have done for us this season.  Itís something we will never know. We have lost great servants to the Club previously and the fans have found new heroís to latch onto.   The same will happen again.

With hardly any fans in last season the squad this season will take time to adjust to, but it will come.

Hopefully you made a good bit again from the 50/50 Malc to further boast your funds

If your thinking is on course KES then next Saturdayís game at Eastleigh could be very pivotal and give us a real clue where we are at.  Sarfend beats us and have lost one and drawn one since.  Then again Yeovil won on the Road today.

I just feel is so very thin and SC could help out IC by finding a bit extra.   After all. SC is sitting on a good bit of the loan money plus he has enjoyed the proceeds from two decent home gates.  All the sponsorship money etc etc.    For me SC is duty bound to support is Manager when he needs it.

When you look at the strike force that Wrexham are able to put out in tonightís game v Notts County.  You realise the standard of striker that are playing for some of these sides.   These strikers are probably earning 25% of Lynnís total playing budget, if not more. 

For us to compete in this League is a real eye opener.

Happy can you not see where the guy is coming from
In terms of admission costs ?   Yes itís expensive but thatís the cost to fans in Kings Lynn if they want to watch this level of Non League Football.    In fairness itís lucky the club doesnít have to pay rent ( other than peppercorn) for The Walks or it could be even more expensive admission.

With the next home game, Dagenham & Redbridge being shown live on BT Sports ( 5.20 KO). I think some kind of incentive needs to be offered for fans to turn up in numbers.

As much as another home defeat is disappointing the results we achieve against the Chesterfield and the other 7/8 big hitters wonít define what we do this season.  Itís what we do against the other 12/13 teams that will determine where we end up in this League.

The one big worry seems to be the size of the squad and how we will cope as the season progresses.   2 games in and we were missing Rowley, King and Linton.  Fleming sent out on loan and Jones back on the bench ( but how fit was he to be there ?).

It seems we donít have the money to go with say a 20 man squad but in reality can we really hope to go with just 18.   Surely SC can find that bit extra to bring in two extra bodies.

If he cannot fund it himself then with all his connections in the business world he can find one or two to come onboard to pump some much needed funds in.

Think there are several points in SCís article that are worth discussing

Cracking idea.   Has the CM job been filled yet ?  Maybe SC will be phoning you later. 

You could be the Ray Hall of the Commercial dept.  Or are they looking for someone at BAFTA level ?

Just SC giving his reasons for charging what he does for Football at Lynn.  Must be some reason for him to devote a whole column to the subject.   Is he concerned by the numbers buying tickets ?

Looks like a place on the bench for Bazza again.
