General Discussion / Re: Lynn lose to Curzon.
« on: January 25, 2024, 12:31:37 PM »


Have to wonder what the players opinion on Lakeland is.  How many fancy putting it in too keep him in a job and how many think the guy is not for them ?



That's a good point and not one that's been made before.

IF, he has lost the confidence of the players, then there's probably no way back for him.

When Clarke was here, it was fairly obvious that the first people to realise something was badly wrong were the players themselves.

I think at the very most a loan has been secured against the club to finish the season.

I doubt that.

It would appear to be pointless as The English Sports Council has a floating charge that covers all the property or undertaking of the company.

Basically, any other charges would come behind The English Sports Council's charge, so it's very unlikely there would be anything left to set any other charge against.

The highest admission prices in the league.
The worst quality of football for years.
The bottom level of match day experience.
The non existence of any club/fan communication.
The best available players sold or given away on a free.
The future is ours my friends.j

You've twisted my melon man!

Very often, I don't think Managers are given enough time to achieve their goals. A harsh reality, but that's football.

Saying that, what would have happened if Clark had been allowed to continue. That 's not even worth thinking about!

Its become obvious now that Hughes was working under severe financial restraints, whereas that is obviously not the case with Lakeland. He has a shopping list and money to spend.

As Mallard has said, the team is now made up of players that were in last years very successful side that finished second in the league, or players that Lakeland has brought in. So where is the problem? Poor signings? Lack of motivation? Poor training? I haven't got the answer to that but obviously something is seriously wrong in the camp.

It does appear that the on pitch failure is pointing in the direction of one man, who in fairness has taken last nights performance squarely on the chin. He may have a decent track record on paper, but that's worth nothing when we are in this situation. In fact looking at paper performances, where were Curzon when he left them to join us?

Managers are always on a Rollercoaster ride, but with us it seems that its an extreme ride. We appear to either have success from those who work the way they want and the Chairman appears to not be able to control to his liking, or those that work the way the Chairman wants, but don't seem to bring the required results in.

If that is the case, its a very difficult one for the Chairman.

As far as I can see, the simple question at the moment could be is Lakeland the man for the task ahead?

Simple question but a very difficult one to answer. Anyone new coming in will have a massive mountain to climb, without the benefit of time to bed in. There would be no time for a honeymoon period.

That's unless their main job is not survival but rebuilding for next season, which I guess would be with a part time squad.

It may say No More Smells on the advertising board tonight, but the Linnets have a real stinker at The Walks.

Lynn 0 v Curzon 4.

Lakeland was saying how much the team had improved  between the two Buxton games. 

Lost 3-1 at home in the first and drew the 2nd one.   

Hughes got a point at Curzon during his reign.

:clap: How we need to look at this situation is, the money saved over the weeks left of this season is the transfer fee we have received. Josh was obviously not in the managers plans, for what ever reason and would have just been around picking up a wage, so now heís gone we are saving x amount of £s per week. Strange way of looking at it but it works for me. :oldman"

Usually with a transfer, you get a fee AND the savings from not having to pay the players wage.

Barrett is a talented player, we cannot deny that, but his attitude and application lets him down.

I'm disappointed we didn't command a fee for him, but as others have said, at least it frees up some wages.

The fact it's Aldershot and Widdrington annoys me - and without wishing to derail the thread, do we know if Lynn are getting any compensation or money fro Widdrington walking out on us??

I haven't heard or seen anything regarding that matter??
I seem to remember reading somewhere that we were not entitled to anything. I could be wrong, but that was my understanding of it.

A point away from isnít a bad result and we had the chance to win it at the death if Hargreaves hadnít shot over,we need to get better service to the new striker. Anyone know why Josh Barret wasnít at the game today

Didn't make the Squad.

Two nil up against bottom of table Kidderminster, but ends up losing 4-2. Kidderminster also missed a penalty.

Honeymoon period is well and truly over.

I expect their forum will be busy and interesting tonight.

From not being able to hold on to a two goal lead, to coming from two behind to snatch a valuable and terrific point away at Hereford.

Hereford 2 v King's Lynn 2
