I know it's a ruthless, dog eat dog league dominated in more ways than one, by the wealthy clubs, but I am not a fan of sides that spend absurd amounts and effectively buy their way up the leagues...

Agree with you Kes, although I don't mind the clubs spending big if the money has come from what the Club has generated themselves. That way, they will naturally find their own level.

Sooner or later the Clubs that buy their way up the league, run out of steam. Usually big fish in little ponds to start off with, but within a couple of seasons they become small fish in a bigger pond.

Even if the amount of money being put into these Clubs each season remains the same, it will be insufficient to maintain the momentum the Clubs have had in previous seasons.

This can then lead to the floating supporters losing interest, so gates fall. The Benefactor (s) issues the "use it or lose it" warning, loses interest when the Supporters don't respond and the penny finally drops (or runs out of money themselves), and the Club is then on the slippery slope.

Clubs are hungry beasts. Once they have been fed, you can't just stop feeding them without experiencing an adverse reaction.

 :oldman" :farmer: I have to agree with you guys, but this happens in all the leagues from premier down. Chelsea and Man City were 2nd division sides who flouted with odd spells in the top flight of football when I was a child, now they are massively benefactor funded clubs, buying trophies for the cabinet. Closer too home Histon, St. Neots, AFC Hornchurch all had money too burn at one point but then the bubble burst. Hornchurch are now rebuilding again but will they have as much money as before?  Blackburn won the premier league with Jack Walker’s money, where are they now ? at a level more suited too them, I would say. As you say, self funded clubs are no issue for me either, but just buying trophies to me takes away some of the joy and pain that football meant to me as a child. :farmer: :oldman"

 :scarf: Daniel Farke will be bringing his 1st team players to the Walks on July 16th with a 7pm kick off.
Hopefully this will put a few pennies back into the club. This will be Norwich’s first pre season friendly and hopefully a sell out match for KLTFC. I feel confident we will be able to sell all the tickets we are allowed to sell with these being near neighbours, hopefully COVID-19 restrictions will be easing and a good evening can be had by all.  :scarf: :farmer: :oldman"

 :oldman" :farmer: Ryan Jarvis has returned to his old stomping ground at Lowestoft, a quality player who I am sure will still have a big influence on games.  :oldman" :farmer:

Name some players over the years who came through  reserves.

Mark Howard 80s Andy Hunt 90s both went on to play football league.

Defty bros would have played a lot of res football before breaking into the first team.

We've also seen many reserves step up to effectively become the first team for short or not so short spells over the years when a manager has left and a large swathe of his first team have followed him!

But as others have said never has the gap between first and reserves in terms of divisions been as great as it is now. How many other full time National league sides have a second string playing in a step 6 league? The times are a changing at the Walks for sure.

 :farmer: :oldman" Shaun Frowhawk, many reserve games and a few for the 1st team.

 :oldman" :farmer:  Nice to see GASHY has found a nice local club close to his home . I feel he is better than the level he is going to be playing at , but he has been there, done it and collected the medals too prove it. Peterborough North Stars gain in a big way.  Good luck GASHY and thanks for the memories, you will always be welcome at KLTFC and hopefully we will get to see you again soon. :oldman" :farmer:

 :farmer: :oldman" I would definitely be happy to see a fit Cameron back next season, however I do feel there is more to this. It is easy to say a role with the academy or scouting or indeed any other role but, this all costs money and money is what we are struggling to generate at this moment in our history.  A fit Cameron lining up at 14.55 on a Saturday in front of the main stand is what I think we would all like too see, but personally I have my doubts. Come on Cameron prove me wrong. :oldman" :farmer:

 :farmer: :oldman" The EDP are reporting that Cameron King has played his last game for KLTFC, Ian Culverhouse  has also stated that the lad needs more tests  to see why he is having breathing problems and that we have not seen the best of his talent since he returned to the club due to illness and injuries.  I feel that he may well have played his last game for KLTFC and if this proves to be the case may I be first to thank Cameron for his efforts for our club. :oldman" :farmer:

I do wonder if being given a run in first-team too soon effected him long term, or if his promise was never quite there.

 :farmer: Personally think it was the latter Loughborough, drafted into a squad and smoke blown up somewhere, when not quite possibly up to the standard required. Good luck to the young man.  :oldman"
