Kes, Tommy Taylor would sign you up straight away.

All you've got to do is look good in the warm up!

Yes Whittaker from Bedford he was a cross between a donkey and a basketball player. I signed him because he looked good in (Bedfords) warm up. What a joke!
My Dad said we need to keep an eye open for someone called Jordan Davies from Telford.

Just one question.    Who's ya Daddy ?  :mystic:

What can we expect/hope for from this one ?

Gary Johnson must be under huge pressure having seen the clubs lead at the top of the  table melt away.  Sutton seem well in control now.

IC certainly did a job on them at The Walks.  So can he produce another master class ?

From a personal point of view I find watching games Streamed  from empty stadiums a soulless experience.

Match day ( for me) is just that. Match DAY.   Streaming cannot offer that. Nothing beats the feeling of entering a ground.  The anticipation, The noise, the smell, the buzz.  Meeting up with people you may only see once a fortnight.  Chatting about the game, the individual performances, whispers of player signings.   Just the whole package.

Iím sure many people love the streaming idea.  Each to their own.  Itís just not for me.

On the subject of Youth Football.  Interesting article on The Beeb website.

Series also on BBC ONE starting on Monday night.   

Good to see that all youth Football is now very much under stricter controls. Annual audits  Security checks on staff etc. 

Can see these clubs facing several court battles on this subject, on past histories.  Going to get expensive.

How did these Clubs allow these ĎCoachesí to ruin so many lives ?

The Academy works on so many levels for the Club. 

The pick of any decent local players and being able to take them through, hopefully a few to first level and beyond.

A tie with the lads where  hopefully they become life long Linnets  fans.

A massive boast to Club funds from funding available.

The children get top coaching in a safe and controlled environment.

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
