General Discussion / Re: ALL quiet on the kings lynn front
« on: June 23, 2022, 10:22:13 PM »
I unfortunately will not be at the game saturday, nothing to do with persons present. I originally, long before the game was arranged, had been invited to be Best Man at a friends wedding. Absolutely gutted that i cannot do that either now as i have Covid.
Hope all that do make it will enjoy the game.

Any excuse for getting out of buying a present.  :laughcry:

Graham and Louise?

Maybe Stephen is putting a bit back and sponsoring the game.  Anonymously of course.

SC said itís too late to use the pitch this year, so a couple of concerts would be held on a hard standing area.

Next year the 4 events will be on the pitch between end of the season and the start of the Friendlies.   So no artists names will be released until the turn of the year.   

SC was noncommittal on what it would mean in terms of income for the Football Club as it would depend on how many attended ( no 541t Sherlock) and the Weather

Whether what?   :dontknow:

Looking at a Chesterfield Newspaper site it seems there were a few other Clubs in for MG.  Hopefully Lynn did well out of it and turned it into a form of a ĎDutch Auctioní.  Thou again in the same report there seems to be some doubt if Chesterfield actually had to pay a fee for him.

All well and good these press releases about players leaving,  when are we going to see some excitement with players coming in ?  What actually is Tommy doing, sunning himself on a beach somewhere ?

Címon Tommy, where are you ?  Letís be having you

Sometimes Newspapers get it wrong!  :dontknow:

Chesterfield forum has an interesting comment.

Not seen this posted elsewhere, SC was on the Chris Goreham show on Radio Norfolk on Thursday morning predominately to speak about the events licence but at the end of the interview he was asked about how the squad was shaping up and said he was expecting another couple (up to four) signings but there would be a couple leaving prior to this.  I think both of those numbers are on the low side but maybe TW is happier with the current squad than I am, ultimately he responsible for performances on the pitch this season and his job depends on getting that balance right.

Link to the Radio Norfolk show here - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p0c8hz97 interview around 1hr 55mins in.

If the Chairman has said 2 to 4 players coming in and a couple leaving, then I guess we have to believe its the true. It would be pointless him saying anything other than the truth.

Lots of clubs going down the consultative route, saw this on the Salford site last week https://salfordcityfc.co.uk/soul-of-salford-launch/   For those that are questioning the volunteer / fan involvement process, can I just ask why you think it works at other clubs but hasn't / won't work at Lynn?

Great question.

Fan's owning part of club or celebrity involvement?  :dontknow:

Maybe you've got to have one or both of these.   :dontknow:

There was an event in Peterborough very recently, featuring top tribute bands. Very successful.

This is something that could be achieved at Lynn rather than talking of Bands such as AC/D.C.
(or having one of the Spice Girls at a game for a half time penalty shoot out 😂😂😂).

Far more realistic and actually possible.

Promoters Common People from Norwich would be a good place to start when asking questions. If Barrie wants their number, he can send me a message.

Well that's another week over and another week nearer the start of the season still no news of any incoming players whilst other clubs go about their business of player recruitment.
As least we were treated to a laugh as  Mr Cleave  outlined his hopes of signing AC/DC up for a gig!
Think Sheps Banjo Boys a better bet! Almost as delusional of him getting Kings Lynn into the football League -remember that one? 😂😂

 :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

Not seen this myself so Iíll take your word for it.

I would think bands such as this have their bookings arranged st least 2 years ahead.

God only knows how much they would charge, but a ďtopĒ tribute band can cost 10k.

Bands such as this can still fill stadiums of 50,000 people. I doubt they would bother getting out of bed for much less than half a million.

Maybe the Sports England loan has been held back to fund this event.

Looks like Barrie is keeping a close eye on the forum with that agenda.  All credit to him.

Social Media is something that Barrie needs to pay urgent attention to and maybe rein in SC on his attacks on anything that doesnít go his way.   The rest of the Media team ( under Reg) need to get proactive as nothing much seems to come out.  Itís like the Club is sleeping for the summer, with only BP getting things out there and moving.

Yep, other than mentioning the website, nothing about media. We know we are miles behind other clubs, even from lower levels..   :dontknow:

I'm sure Barrie will now add this to his list.

Its clear to me that some of you did not go to the meeting, because many
of your concearns he addressed, one being the finances. Barrie has not come
in here with his eyes closed and knows what is is needed. Tony m was spot on
when he said he is the best signing since Warrington and that is when he should
have been here when club and the team and club was on the up. He is here now
and has got things moving, as he said at the meeting it will take time pull it around.

Didn't Barrie look somewhat surprised when he was asked about the Sports England loan, as if he didn't know anything about it?   :dontknow:

Of course Barrie (or someone such as him) should have been here earlier. Some of us have been suggesting it for for a long time (and been shouted down for doing so). The reason why it didn't happen before now is that the Chairman presumably thought he could do it all himself (which he obviously couldn't), and people involved with the running of the Club appeared more interested in their cosy little positions and didn't want to rock the boat by telling him he couldn't, for fear of losing the said positions.

Can I suggest Joe Taylor.......

Financially, I really don't think we are in that league.

Any more news on the team training in Cambridge, as reported in the Non League paper three or four weeks ago?

I would guess they are now about to start training, or already have. First friendly only about three weeks away.  :dontknow:
