After SC declared his intention to continue, despite having this mythical gun being held to his head ( he had the option that Dover went with).  He then threw the ball to Culverhouse and Back to try and pull some decent players in, very much on the cheap to fill in the gaps.  Thus allowing the Club to limp to the end of the season.

SC can count himself very lucky on the Management team he has in place.   Without them he could have been very much staring down the barrel of that gun he mentions.

Can we get a result here, even with a depleted team when some havenít even played together before.

Would you put it passed IC ?   2-1 away win.

Barrows and King are expected to be furloughed, because of injury.    We lose two but have three new signings in, very much on the cheap so thatís a plus one situation for less money.

One space and Dover.   So Lynn should have nothing to fear.

Results between now and the end of the season are secondary.   SC has decided to complete the season. And seemingly found a cost effective and affordable way of doing it without putting the club in debt.

I wonder who the next (final ?) 4 to be furloughed will be ?

The one concern for furloughing 12 players is what impact it will have on the Group?  Or in particular the ones IC would like to keep on for next season.  IC has long beaten the drum about the tightness of the dressing room.  Will this situation destroy that ?

The new Georgie Thompson ?  He is playing at League two ( one up from where we are) at Harrogate Town.  Hardly compares to Norwich who next season will be plying their trade at Premiership level.

We saw with Simon Power, released by Norwich,  the standard they would be looking at.

Surely it is called playing the system ?

I seem to recall Stephen Cleeve ( on a Podcast) saying, words to the effect, there was a plethora of League players. Available out there at £400 a week ( a week = 2 games these

I kinda like KESís theory.   Players prepared to put themselves out there on the cheap in attempt to gain a contract for next season.

How many players did Chesterfield  hVe on their books before furloughing some, Paul.  I guess a club of their stature are a little removed from where we are at.

I read that AFC Wimbledon are allowing their full academy to go out on loan to National League Clubs FOC.

With the change of Manager at Ipswich, maybe IC can tap into an old Team   mate to help him out ?

Can see Stephen between the sticks as custodian.  Maybe Mark Hearle at left back.  Backie   Leading the line.   Dilly supplying the slippery Nipster role.  Not sure where West Lynn would fit in, midfield General ?

Would you believe KES itís cleared up a treat, only now to be suffering with a groin strain.  Think itís the deep pockets and short arms that maybe the cause.

Are you fit for Tuesday night.   Could you do 60 mins ?

Thanks admin thatís certainly cleared up a few of the question.
So after Saturday we are down to a 9 man squad so 7 players need to come in, to fill
A bench.

Can we assume that we wonít be accepting the Sports England loan now, if offered?

Loads of questions and very few answers coming from SC at the Club.

Maybe we could hear a podcast ( as promised).  Love to hear SC in conversation with IC.  Iíd even pay money to listen to that one.

What players will still be with us come Saturday ?

Will IC have found a few newbies  to turn out for nothing or a even a cheap rate.

Can IC pull another result out of his somewhat reduced playing strength.

Will IC still be with us ?

Could SC let the fans know what the short term plan is ?

If we can Nick a result on Saturday I wouldnít mind chipping to but the players a bottle of beer to celebrate.

What team will Dilly select ? 

What do the forum members think ?
