General Discussion / Home to Solihull (with fans)
« on: May 25, 2021, 01:34:22 PM »
So, aside from the attendance - which I think will be small reflecting the lack of anything riding on the game and still concerns over COVID - what are we expecting from tonight?  Note on the front page saying McAuley is back available after suspension so will IC revert to a back three that he started with on Saturday or go with another forward from the start given we are at home with fans in?

My team (and can't see this being the starting eleven):
                    Richardson (sorry for my typo gs)
   Fleming, Barrows, McAuley/McFaddon
Howard, Clunan, Payne/Babos, Denton
                     Carey
              Gash, Jackson

With it being not much more than a pre-season game the disappointing thing is that there are probably very few of the squad playing for their place as I expect most to be moving on with the exception of McFadden (if fit tonight), possibly Clunan and maybe Jackson has done enough to warrant a place next year?  Could also make a case for Denton and/or Barrows but will travelling distance mean there are other closer / cheaper options of a similar ability?

General Discussion / Chesterfield (away)
« on: May 11, 2021, 02:21:05 PM »
Hopefully get one more ticked off tonight as we get ever nearer to the end of the season.  Chesterfield didn't look that impressive at the Walks last month but did enough to win which probably sums up both club's seasons.

Preview on the club site https://www.kltown.co.uk/2021/05/11/match-preview-chesterfield-fc-vs-kings-lynn/  says we are missing Baggot again due to Ipswich's progression in the FA Youth cup - whilst their cup run couldn't have been predicted, he does seem a strange signing as he hasn't looked NL level (mainly down to his age) and we are very unlikely to see him back at the Walks for 2021/22 so, to me, it was an opportunity missed, maybe at the time it was just a case of getting bodies into the club?

Good to read in SC's column in the EDP at the weekend that the recruitment and scouting team has been bolstered, certainly one of the areas where we are well behind other step 1 clubs, fingers crossed they and IC can put together a better squad for next season

News of former Linnets / Alfie Payne

Alfie Payne has moved to Lowestoft during the lockdown https://www.edp24.co.uk/sport/norwich-alfie-payne-signs-lowestoft-6499858

Never thought we quite got the best out of him, maybe he didn't have the physical stature required to replace Jarvis but certainly had the footballing nous to fill that role (outstanding in the York home game when he came off the bench and just made us tick all day).  Wish him all the best and think if they play him deeper than we did can see him opening up defences for Hawkins and others to get a hatfull.
