Dilly as you know one size doesn’t fit all.

Does anyone know if he has actually made an investment?

SC’s EDP column should answer your question Cigar.   Seems our owner keeps repeating his need of the loan he took out to be written off and for money to be given for him to fund his hobby.

Not just kept the lights but made a significant investment in new players to strengthen the squad.

Is it really that unusual at this stage of the season to hear of Clubs in trouble.  Always seems to strike post Christmas.  Didn’t our own SC say we were gone by the end Jan if no new money was found ?

While you have people who always seem to feel they know how to make a Non League Football, successful, they always seem to reach the end of the road having had their fingers burnt.  It’s amazing really as it tends to be businessmen who have made decent money in their field yet all business logic seems to go out of the window once they walk into a Football Club.   Strange, as these business people didn’t get where they are by allowing their company’s to haemorrhage money.

Way beyond me.

Huge game tomorrow.  Have to make sure Tuesday nights hard fought win isn’t tossed away at home tomorrow.  Think there is a definite uplift with the fans so a big opportunity for AL and his team to show how much they have come on since the new investment came in allowing the squad to be boasted.

Does anyone know if ‘Joe’ has actually made an appearance at a Lynn game yet ,

Surely if it hadn’t of been for ‘Joe’ and his money we wouldn’t be here now.  I wonder time wise how close SC was to having to put us into Administration?

Have to think the strengthening of the squad is directly linked to ‘Joe’ having backed the Club.  Last nights result is all down to the new money beginning to bare fruit.

Dilly, don’t have a listen to the Brackley Managers comments from last night.   It would upset you.   According to him.  Lynn did a job on his team, set up tough to beat and feeding off scraps. 

Different ways to win a game.

Thanks for the link Tony.   Seems they are now going for quality then not quantity.   11 games in NLN tonight.  4 games being screened.  I guess they have to try these things to see if there is a market for it.   

At least they are continuing with a with something and not binned the whole idea off, yet.

If you put a product out there which is of a quality matching a 1970’s home movie then how do they expect that to attract a paying audience.  Most outside of the Clubs playing wouldn’t watch it free.

Not sure it’s being withdrawn Tony, more I understand that it’s to be screened  on a selective game basis.

Take Roy Keane at Utd.  His ‘style’ and ‘encouragement’ allowed other more technically gifted players the opportunity to go and play... Giggs, Scholes, Beckham, Ronaldo, Rooney etc

Rushall v Gloucester  and Chorley v Southport will be other results to look out for today.  Don’t want to see the gap to safety increasing

Good point B&G.  Why can’t he get game time with our U23’s. under Alex Cross ?   It’s great looking to the future ( isn’t that the remit of the Academy?), but surely the future very much depends on the present and staying at Step 2

So Maradona and Messi both won it by themselves Dilly ?   Both World class no question.  However they had other players keeping the opposition out at the other end.

With Europe leading the way on a World level maybe we would be better looking at Countries like Portugal where the infrastructure drops off a Cliff outside the top two leagues.  They have produced the odd player who could play a bit Dill
