For those of you that have bought streaming the service starts from 7.15- we have spent a lot with 3 cameras upgraded broadband, new gantry , faster laptops etc but sadly only 25 have bought it. Very likely we will only stream to season ticket holders going forward make our life much easier - wrexham sold 2,700 streams for their opening fixture we can’t make it worth while at these low numbers so if the numbers stay the way that they are please do not complain- we will just stream when is a big away following

I wonder if because it's "only" a youth game the electricity suppliers let the club have power for the floodlights etc for free ?

Are they only expecting 50 people to turn up?  :dontknow:

I've been thinking and reading about this over the weekend. As always, there's for and against.

Its been described as a "Conronavirus grab", which I assume means PL are taking advantage of the current Pandemic and the precarious financial state of the EFL. They are probably doing just that, and if so, they're not the only ones trying to gain an advantage. Football is big business and its dog eat dog in their world.

One step closer to a European Super League? I would guess so.

Domestically, Project Big Picture appears to make a lot of sense. There's going to be an increase in European games in 2024. There are only 7 days in a week, so they have to fit them in somehow.

Personally I'd let them get on with it. It would solve the immediate problem that EFL have, and if PL are so determined to put such a large gap between the "Elite" (I hate that word, especially in sport) and the lower levels of the game, there really is not a lot people can do. They will force it through sooner or later, as the agenda appears to be what's best for their business (as is the case for the vast majority of Business's).

So, we'll have people that "follow" PL Clubs (with prices just getting higher and higher) and people that "support" their Clubs that play at a lower level.

People will get their football fix somewhere, with many wanting that fix to involve watching games live. It could be an opportunity not a problem.

It could be that by default, people's fingers are at least hovering over the reset button for NL football!

Some interesting reading today from the PL and their Project Big Picture.

That could sort EFL finances out. Now who’s going to look after the NL?

Anybody else seen the bitterness of Gary Setchell on twitter?
Can't see anything I would read as bitterness. More a case of backing someone that used to play for him. Nothing to see here as far as I can see.

I hope Alex does not see things the same way, but theres been no hint of that as far as I can see.

Just a very minor Twitter comment from a Lynn lad that used to manage his home town football Club.

Nathan Fox at Alfreton

Yes, I was then going to post that.

Nobody appears to know anything about Alfie Payne.   :dontknow:

At no time did Southwell get a through all or Marriott get one to feet.  They spent all game watching the ball fly high over their shoulders. So the midfield were to blame today.  Also our 2CHs were slow.  Same with Jarvis.  We must have been expecting a physical exam, but their strength was in a good passing game, plus some slippery skill men who ran us ragged.  Archer, in particular.  They are a good side in a smart stadium, to be fair., and played good football throughout. I thought Smith looked favourite for that ball against Archer, but he seemed to back off to get a “ position” to defend a cross.  Anyway, we’ll be back, but we must pick the players who’ll pin the opponents back....And where was Power ?  Rant over !!!  Apols for boring you on a Sat night.  Time for a beer !


Just a bad day at the office?

First loss at this level, but it was against one of the favourites for the title, and away from home. This was always going to be a difficult day, but it was a bigger loss than I anticipated, especially at HT.

Just read IC's comments in LN's article, and made me wonder about a few things. Was this a one off, or can we expect more of this? Were we that poor on the day  or were they that good? Could it have been wrong tactics on the day? Maybe Players attitude? 

Will we be good enough for this level, although we have given a good account of ourselves in previous two games.

One thing that I believe many will agree with, is that the live stream left a lot to be desired.

Premier League games not selected for broadcast by Sky Sports or BT Sport in October will be made available on a pay-per-view basis.

Fans will have to pay £14.95 to watch games not chosen to be screened in the usual way.

All fixtures will now be televised.

Don't know if that's the case with Lynn, presume as he said it it would be?

Maybe one for the Clubs media department to comment on.   :dontknow:

Good and positive deal if it is the case.  :scarf:

There was a comment from the Peterborough chairman a few weeks ago to say that they (Peterborough) would cover the wages of all players on loan at clubs.

Thanks Paul. That's nice to hear.

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 can’t 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.
