 :farmer: That's 3 more points towards cementing a place in this league for next season, this has to be our first aim for this season. Anything above that is a major bonus, however I believe we are more than capable of the playoffs and possibly better. A long season lies ahead and players will get injured and suspended this is when we will find out if we have the squad numbers required. What a great start we have had however.

I think testís will come all the time away from home throughout the season.  Ian Culverhouse isnít getting carried away by this start.  Bumps in the road ( as IC calls them) will happen and we have to remember we are in there fighting with some big hitters in this league, including a host of ex Football League clubs and most having played at National League Premiership.   We are one of the minnowís now at this level,

I for one am going to enjoy the ride and letís see where it takes us.

 :oldman" I have to agree, we are a minnow in terms of this league and yes there are better supported teams than ours, however we support our team just as fanatically as any other fans. We must remember, these so called big teams are in this league because they were not good enough to stay in higher leagues, so were relegated. There will definitely be stern tests ahead but let them worry about us, Guiseley was possibly the wake up we needed and I don't think we have been shown up by any side so far this season. Big teams do get beaten by smaller teams on a regular basis, so buckle up and enjoy our ride.
Hereford are a big team at this level and over the past few years have found KLTFC a hard nut to crack, so why should York, Boston, Southport etc not worry about our squad, we will I believe fear well in this league, and let's see where we are at Christmas. :farmer:

 :bus:  :farmer: :oldman" Well had I have been offered 10 points from our first 5 games in National North, I would definitely have taken it. We had many debates on this thread about the squad since the end of last season, but I must say Mr Culverhouse, Cleeve and Bastock seem to have got things right on and off the pitch. The surface is superb, the new clubhouse is what was needed, and in general people are beginning to pull together as opposed to against each other. The only concern I have is I feel we still need a quality striker in reserve, just in case Marriott or Gash are injured, but in general,personally very happy with the progress of KLTFC.  :farmer:

Very impressive win at AFC Telford today.

Daz think he has give to ambitious Billericay not Braintree
:banghead; sorry Mal, the heat must have got to me this week, still does not take away from the fact, what a great front 3 we would have had if money and ambitions were matched. Not saying he would have been Mr Culverhouse's choice of player, we will not know that but deffo on my list of preferred strikers at this level. I still feel we are a good striker short of a good squad. Great result today by the boys at Braintree. :banghead;  :farmer:  :oldman"

 :farmer: I see that Matt Rhead has left Lincoln city and signed for Braintree.  What a signing he would have been for us, no nonsense very physical old school centre forward. I realise that there is probably not the budget for a striker of his calibre to add to our present  2 top strikers but what a frontline we wold have had if we could have picked from those 3 each week. :oldman"

 :farmer: I have just watched the highlights from yesterday and a couple of things impressed me as well as the win for the Linnets, firstly the stadium at Stamford looks very nice, open down the side but in general it looked very good. The thing that hit me the most however was the amount of sponsorship boards around the pitch side, it appears to me that every space Stamford have pitch side was occupied by a sponsorship board, compare this to ours in recent times and a lesson could be learned. Fill all the space around a pitch and this could generate a healthy amount of money for a football club, well done to all concerned at Stamford, I now wait to see what our pitch side boards look like when we return.  :oldman"

 :scarf:  :farmer: Well, not much movement on the player front recently, lots of players will be looking for clubs in the next few days, we have a small squad at this moment and I feel we do need 3/4 more players to have a squad able to compete in this league, we need a little more depth in my opinion. How do other people feel we need to strengthen and who do you feel we should be trying to tempt to the Walks ???. I personally feel we still need cover in the whole spine of the team, centre back, central midfield and another forward. I would like to see Jake Reed at the Walks,see what he could do at this level, however not sure on his contractual position with Lowestoft or indeed if he fancys KLTFC. We definitely need more competition for places, interesting times ahead I believe.  :oldman"

 :farmer: Thank you Gordon and Graham for your true support of king's Lynn football club over the years, you have both been very generous in your support of our teams, hopefully we will still be seeing you both somewhere around the stadium on match days.  :oldman"

 :oldman" I see we have appointed a new female physio to keep the squad in tip top condition for the new season, good luck Carol and thanks for your efforts Nico, good luck in your studies at university.  :farmer: These people are and indeed have been very important parts of the squad at KLTFC.  :cup2:

This is the highest level of football that any Lynn football team has ever played
I think the highest level was when the club were professional in the mid to late 50s and applying for membership to the football league.

 :red card: sorry nemesis and West Lynn , red card to myself, you are correct Nemesis,but in my defence most will not remember those years but you are deffo correct, Mike the card was just used in haste, no offence meant. As you will see by my posts , I am not after causing rifts between fans, just good honest ,opinionated views.  Sorry if I offended it was not meant that way. :farmer:  :oldman"

The "Special One" that is Ian Culverhouse will inspire, cajole and develop the team who we are fortunate to have. The nucleus of last season's fantastic team are still here and with the incoming strength we will be a force to be reckoned with. Teams "Oop North" will be in for a shock. Lynn are going to be pushing for a Play-Off position.
:banghead;  :red card: There are some massive clubs in non league terms in this league, York, Chester, Darlington, Boston,Hereford,AFC Telford to name but a few,many being ex football league clubs, I really feel we must learn to walk in this league before we run. This is the highest level of football that any Lynn football team has ever played, and I agree we need to be aiming for the top 6, but this will be a very difficult task, we really need to see where we stand in terms of strength of squad after say 10 games before we make any rash predictions. There are going to be teams out there with a lot healthier playing budget than we could imagine having, therefore we put our faith in Mr Culverhouse to find and coach those unfound gems we need to carry this club forward. Here's hoping for a great season. :cheers:  :farmer:  :oldman"

Got to think Tony that the 4 coming in ( including the returning Stewart ) are better than the players leaving (FBT excluded of course from that).  Then again if there is a couple more coming in then it stands to reason that maybe the likes of Stewart and Carey could be farmed our on loan.  No point in those lads coming in from step 5 to play at Step 6 for The Reserves.

 I also feel the same about Limb who added nothing at step 3 so retaining him once promotion was secured seems a very strange decision.

I'd assume the Limb one would be because he's on a hefty amount, so instead of having to pay out his contract, you may as well keep him and hope either he kicks on because the ability is in there, or a club will be happy to take him on loan and pay part of his wages. No point shelling out a big amount to release him, to effectively get a back up striker for the time being who could be a dud. Gash/Marriot got injured for a spell, then things might change.

Feel a CB is all that's required. Likely a RB too if Burrows doesn't commit.

 Ross Barrows has agreed terms with the club  for next season.

 :farmer: I am happy with the way KLTFC seem to have started building for next season and beyond.  Matters on the pitch seem to being taken care of by Mr.Cleeve and Mr. CULVERHOUSE, the work on the ground seems to be planned and ready to roll into action, there is better communication coming from within towards the fans and Mr Cleeve seems to be interacting with the trust now.Looking forward to the new season now.👍🤟
