Just about sums football up....begging for money...begging to be given training facilities...wanting government handouts all on the one hand and signing a player on the other.....unbelievable.

Sadly, I have to agree with you.

If, as SC is suggesting the Govt bail out money is now in doubt will we see a battening down of the hatches ?   I see Slough are down to 13 fit players and canít afford to bring the n extra bodies.  Lucky we have a 20 man squad to go with.

Don't think so Mall...think clubs are waiting on Gvnmt bailout to see what they can afford.......gvmt are just behind the curve on this (there's a thing) and need to get into gear.

Maybe the waiting is over.

It appeared on Clubs website a short while ago that we were signing a  Kyle Barker from Posh, then it was taken down.    :dontknow:

Not 100% sure on this one, but I think he's a Lynn Lad.

They are chasing a moving target. Its a nightmare for all of us.

With regards to football and the NL, I believe that the Govt said that they would arrange a package worth 20 Million. If so, this could involve all sorts of things. e.g. tax breaks, reduction in paying VAT, a delay in paying tax, cash etc. Whatever it is, everything has to be costed.
What's the betting that Club Chairmen thought that it would a straight 20 Million cash!   :dontknow:

It does seem these wealthy Individual  Club owners are always looking for others to indulge them in their hobby.  I think as a Country we also need to very careful on the pressure that is placed on the public purse strings.

Many people seem to think that the Chancellors wallet is bottomless. It's not, and what money he has in his wallet is OUR money!

Many of these Clubs have been living a hand to mouth existence (not my words) and were in financial trouble before the Pandemic.

As has been said before, "football is the most important of the unimportant things". Any money that is spent on football clubs (and you could say especially badly run football clubs) is money that could be spent in more important areas.

I hope every Club is saved and lives to fight another day, but when you see the wealth that the people who control football at all levels have at their disposal(or as in some cases, claim to have), I would much rather them sort matters out themselves and not rely on taxpayers money. There is no doubt whatsoever that there is enough money in the game, be it Clubs, their owners or highly paid players, to be able to rectify the financial shortfall some clubs are experiencing.

That's a very fair point LL.  The Premier League is no longer affordable to the average working man, it has got completely out of control. Most people who claim to support a top team are only in fact followers of a team as they never actually get to see that team play due to the ridiculous prices to line the pockets of the rich.

Very much so. Sadly, at some non league clubs it seems to be going in the same direction. Some are in danger of turning Supporters into just Followers.

Well done Mike, all credit it to you.

Yes, well done Mike. It's very good of you..

Now, what would have happened if someone had not bothered to "moan" on this forum?

Mike, you have shown how things get done, by being proactive rather than reactive!

I am in contact with Mark Hearle and he is getting back to me about cost. (See, they do answer.)

I shall buy at least one, possibly two if price is OK.

I think you will find that the cost of these flags is similar to the cost of replica shirts. Therefore working along the Chairmans logic, it should only set you back by a couple of quid.

People aren't complaining.
Or moaning, as many like to call any comments that are not their own.
It was just commented on because BT showed it quite a few times.

Well said Jesus.

A47, do you really believe that all phone call's, emails or questions asked directly of Club officials get replied to?

They can't always even be bother to respond to idea's about fund raising!

Very fair summary Tony.  Still think the ex Norwich  Centre Half Is coming in from Sligo when their season ends in 3 games time. With   The Squad numbers We are missing a No 4.
Apparently when he is available is more to do with their cup games than league games. If they get to the final, it could be November before he appears in Lynn's colours.   :dontknow:

No extra lighting was needed. As far as i am aware the floodlights are league 2 spec. These were put in place after the oldham fa cup tie, where sky had to bring extra lighting i believe.

I think there has been additional work on them since then. I seem to remember the floodlights were one of the very first things Cleeve had to invest in when he took over the Club.

Shame there was no minute's silence at the game today.
Was this at the request of BT Sport?

Can we expect a minutes silence for Ronnie at the next home game?

Would people like to see the Club do this as a mark of respect for a Lynn Legend?

It's people that make the history. Seems pointless stating "since 1879" (debatable), if the history makers don't get remembered when they should.
