General Discussion / Re: Segregation Area
« on: November 15, 2021, 08:15:19 AM »
It looked on Saturday like something had been taken on board - the segregation area width appeared to have been doubled - more stewards in between Home and away fans and some sort of fabric hanging to stop things being launched between home and away fans.
Rumour also has it that a new PA system is being sorted too although unsure when and itíll come at quite the expenseÖ that might be a blessing in disguise letís hope the new one is fit for purpose.

At this time I'd settle for making ourselves known in this Div and staying here.

I would imagine most supporters would but that's looking very doubtful. A massive task even at the start of a season let alone being in the position we are now.

Even if we drop a level, you can't build a castle on sand. Step 2 could well be a struggle for us unless lots of things change.

I know Mall, I personally thought it a bit daft having him on the bench if he wasn't going to be used.

Maybe IC will receive an e-mail saying he's got to be used?

If I were S.C I would leave twitter alone...he has been absolutely demolished by fans ...Wrexham and Lynn not good reading.He is getting quite a reputation.

I don't think he is overly concerned about a reputation.

Hopefully the loss of a young player like Joe will taste a little better by the cheque received for him from PíBoro

What cheque is that?

Re SC , B & G, it's his dream that has got Lynn this seems unlikely that there will be large scale changes in the running of the club or any devolution of power. It either works this season with the current set up or it doesn't..... that's how I think it will pan out.

Hi Kes. I totally agree with what you are saying there, but that didn't really answer the question.

The problem with football, as a supporter, is we all get involved emotionally.

Take the emotion away and deal with facts.

Culverhouse as a manager warrants more time - assuming he wants to stay

I have previously questioned the credentials of IC's team - Bastock seems a bit of a character, but how good is he, really??

Also Backie - now I know Backie is held in high esteem amongst fans and I'm sure there are probably people on here who know him personally, qualified / good is he to be a Director Of Football??
Who would be his contacts within the game??
How respected within the world of football is he??

To me, it's the players who aren't quite up to it and possibly the backroom staff - it isn't Ian Culverhouse.

I know IC should be judged over the course of a season, but there is no way he can be blamed for the daft decisions on the pitch and the mistakes on the pitch today

Good post. I.m.o. a lot of the players are not good enough, whether thatís down to ICís mistakes in wanting them or they are the best we could get with the money available?. And as far as your comments about the credentials and quality of his back up teamÖthen I think thatís a very relevant question to be asking!!Ö.as likeable and ďlocalĒ as they are, questions really have to be asked whether they have the experience or contacts at this level of PROFESSIONAL football to be up to the job.
I.m.o. the only chance for Lynn to survive both on and off the pitch this season is to bring in at least three better players and for IC to have some stronger back up, off the pitch. Now, both those things will involve more money and also whether IC would be happy to carry on if his assistants were replaced, are both HUGE ďIFíSĒ but without those things happening itís as sure as next month is December that Lynn will get relegated and almost as sure too  that there will be a nasty ďexplosionĒ come the end of the season too, OFF the pitch :(
Sad times when really it should have been great times with the club at the highest level itís ever been, but it really looks like itís one level too high for any kind of sustainability.

Very good post and response, irespective of people agreeing with all, part or none of it. Good discussion points.

The Club as a whole appears to be struggling at this level. Who knows, if last season and the season before had not been effected as they were, these shortcomings may well have become evident before now.

Neither of the posts mention the Chairman. If the people already mentioned are, shall we say, punching above their weight, can the same be said about him? After all, he ultimately  makes all the appointments for every position at the Club.

Should the question not be if we can rectify these issues for this season, but can they be rectified at all with how things appear to done at the Club?  :dontknow:

Is Aaron Jones full time?

£500k loan with it secured on assets in the ground which according to the balance sheet are around 290k.  So if the debt is not met they could clear out the ground and still the club would have to find £200k plus

Of course. Presumably the other debts are also still there (or has the Chairman reduced his Directors loans), so presumably the amount of debt the club carries must be well in excess of the 500k any way.

Is the 500k expenditure traceable and transparent

I don't think there were too many conditions regarding what the Club could do with it, as long as it was used for the Clubs benefit.

Clunan still works as well as playing (radio Norfolk).Fair play to him but it does pose the Question....How full time is full time football ?

If that's the case, why didn't we hold onto Gash?

To pay £500k to get relegated will go down as Gerald Ratner moment  for the Club.   I seem to recall that  IC was 100% in favour of not continuing last  season but SC was the one who wanted to play on.
I seem to remember they were both on the same page at one time, then Cleeve changed his mind and decide to play on.

In a way, I can understand Cleeve taking the 500k loan. No personal guarantees, its all on the Club, so if theres no Club he's not responsible for the debt. The terms and conditions of the loan are so favourable it must have been very hard to resist.

It's still 500k though, and has got to be paid back even if it is on favourable terms.
