It would be nice if a few of the more local players, could join in and enter a team.   :scarf:

Stan, your rationale never ceases to amaze me.

A Norwich fan told me that he heard that a certain Mr. Hoolahan was on his way to Lynn. I'm sure this is just the usual Chinese whispers.
I think you'll find B & G that the prediction about Mr Hoolihan came from a 17 year old Norwich supporting friend of my son. Mallard... stealing ideas from children! Whatever next?

I doubt VERY much, that's where Mallard gets his information from!

What used to be known as an “enforcer” when he was in your team was known as a thug who should be sent off if he was an opponent.  Now, in the modern era, the “physical game” doesn’t really exist because you’ll never see a player pick himself up with a smile on his face and congratulate the player who almost broke his leg for his expert piece of “enforcement” !  Whereas you might do if it were really part of the game.....BTW, on Leeds of old, I can still remember their brilliant 27 pass movement against ? in another mauling - and Eddie Gray was Poetry !  Obviously this is a game of opinions !

Against Southampton. Leeds ran out 7-0 winners.

There have been numerous other games where the figure of 27 passes has been bettered. For example Liverpool achieved 51 against Bournemouth, but were also on the wrong end of 29 consecutive passes against Barcelona.

In every League there will be teams that are more physical than others - Leeds Utd of old, Wimbledon of old were two of those who were known as "Dirty". Some of those clubs who we saw at The Walks last season could throw their weight about - some were downright thugs.

Being a teenager in the 70's, I still hate Leeds!!!!!

I will apologise in advance, if I offend is unusual for me to go off on one, but some of this negativity is tedious.....Given grants are available for much of the work it would surely be senseless to spend the money on that. Without someone like SC fans would never get to experience this standard of football and excitement. Left to its own devices the club could probably manage Eastern Counties or a step higher at best..... so if it ever should come crashing down you would be back to that level anyway. Given the amount of time and money the Chairman has put in together with the great efforts from all the people he employs, I really do feel its time for people's fears and anxieties to be put aside while this journey is happening.....just enjoy the fact that Lynn may actually progress and play at a really good level.
It seems to me, some people would be happy with a no risk strategy, play at step 6 in front of 200or 300 and just stagnate for a life time.....enjoy the local derby with Yarmouth and Swaffham and coiff the odd jar at half time, while moaning about everything that could be better and doing damn all about it

That is the scenario for an unprogressive large village/small town team I M O and sadly that reflects the mindset of many in West Norfolk...too afraid to stick their heads above the parapet and get things done and always unsettled by change......not surprised it has taken the energy of a number from outside the area, along with some very good, positive and dedicated local people to get things moving........

No need to apologise for a genuine post, in the interests of balance I would take issue with a couple of points.  My view is probably closer to Frontmans although that doesn't mean any of us want the club to stagnate or play at step 6 - absolutely no reason for that if the club is well run imo.  People who are concerned about the longer term are not just being negative, I for one never want to stand on a terrace feeling the way I did that night against Retford. 

I don't doubt that SC has thrown loads of money at 'the problem' that is KLFC and we have seen some damn good football in the past two seasons but for me that doesn't justify the debt that the club is now saddled with.  Next season is a real worry for some of us, while its great to go up a level there are some real fundamental cost increases that I just can't see being covered other than directly from SC, the issues around the upgrading required to the ground are small beer in comparison and history has shown us that this sort of one-man, unsustainable 'benefactor' model tends to end in tears.  There may still be time to set things up for a more financially stable future and SC did start to make more positive noises in that direction in his programme notes towards the end of the season and I would like to think the possibility of working with the Trust on the ground upgrading could be the start of a new partnership where trust is built up on both sides.  I for one am not unsettled by change, I just hope it comes quickly enough.

A well balanced and sensible post. Well said!  :scarf:

Jefferson airplane, blimey that’s going back.
 Maybe we will have an A Jones at Right back and a C Jones at left back. He won’t have to travel far up the A47 either.
Its certainly a lot closer than Eastbourne, so that's got to be in our favour!
