General Discussion / Re: Will the FA end the season ?
« on: March 13, 2020, 12:50:21 PM »
With the next home game ( after Saturday) two weeks away, and everything changing, seemingly on a daily basis I wouldnít call it Ďdoommongeringí. Just facing reality.   We have a lot of fans over retirement age, who may  see it that way.

Likely a very prescient comment Mallard Well said

Mallard may well have been over optimistic here. We could hear very soon that last Tuesday was the last match of the season.   :dontknow:

If itís postponed/cancelled, I guess theyíll do one of two things; determine the league by points per game or declare the whole season null and void.

DD, I think its fair to say Fox has come in and done a decent job although I think he is a good way off FBT (as are most left backs in this league).  Think him and Burrows offer different things - Burrows has the pace but Fox gives the team a better shape going forward, that said tonight I would play Kelly on the left hand side of a 3-4-1-2.  Agree with others to start with Southwell but would like to see him justify his place with a performance rather than being an option to give Gash / Marriott a breather.

My team (and I am sure IC will have different ideas)
Ward, Smith, McAuley
Jones, Richards, Payne, Kelly
Southwell, Marriott

Iíf be tempted to go the other way, and play Gash and Southwell from the start.

That is what i understood that a rule change had taken place. I thought that if this happened a goal kick should be awarded.

Or if they were sporting allow the opposition to score a goal!

It canít be done from a drop-ball anymore. As this was from a throw-in, perfectly legal.

Agreed, KES, that we donít want panic.  However, the problem with your suggestion, IMO, is that we donít know who IS affected, nor who is in contact with them, probably unknowingly.  That is what causes the actual spread.  Worse, people donít have to be in contact with those affected, nor those in contact with them, just touch what theyíve touched, or walk into a cough or sneeze !

Its transmissible before individuals are symptomatic. Itís why containment hasnít really worked anywhere. Sensible hygiene measures should be taken (that we should all be doing anyway) but itís only if youíre over 70 or have significant prior conditions you should consider avoiding public gatherings.

with 4 games coming up in 9 Days from Saturday   this is crunch time for us  win 3 of them and hopefully we will be on our way as the games are running out - fingers crossed  no injuries and stupid bookings   

Marriott was booked last night.

Am I right in thinking by this point in the season it is 10 bookings that are required to trigger a suspension?

If so, no-one is in imminent danger. Gash, Jones and McAuley are our highest, and each only have 6, (I think).

WLM, I think Alfie is more than capable (if not better) than MC in that role but IC has generally played him further up the pitch.  When he got his chance in the York game after Jordon came off he looked far more 'natural' in that slightly deeper role.  As for moving Aaron, I think you end up creating two 'compromises' both in the midfield and also at right back where he has proved a better option than Ross imo.

As for teams marking Gash & Marriott, we have to have a plan B, earlier in the season Adam was still finding opportunities (and I think will continue to do so) but we also played through the midfield more with goals coming from a range of players.  Still not convinced that isn't the way to carry on but with the arrival of Power we seemed committed to having a winger which has generally been at the expense of one of the other midfielders so maybe that is now the new plan B, so long as we don't adopt the panic measure plan X of Power and Hawkins both on the field at the same time as seen in the second half vs Kidderminster we should be OK.

You make a good point about Power. Heís certainly one of our best 11 players, but Iím not convinced heís in our best 11. Prior to his arrival, we played through the middle far more. Now heís being used as an out, an excellent out against teams who push their full backs forward, but against teams that sit deeper his threat is somewhat neutered.

It certainly doesnít look promising.

Boston now 3-1 up.


And stays that way at full time.

Pretty good result for us. Top of the league with 3 games in hand now.

Fair chance of Monday being called off, but will still be leading come Saturdayís game against Park Avenue.

Going private for an Op isnít cheap.  I guess the waiting list on NHS would have been months.   

Hope the bucket collection raises a good few quid for the lad.  Mark, couldnt the Club put on some kind of fund raiser to help Ryan as well ?  After all he was injured giving his all for the Club?  Now you are full time Iím sure you would have the time to put a little something together.

Nothing against Ryan at all but I would hope Mark has better things to do with his time and any 'money raising ideas' have to go to the club first and foremost.  Maybe if an individual fan wanted to do something along the lines suggested by B&G then fair enough that would be between them and Ryan but the club is clearly short of volunteers to run it's 'own' fundraising at present. 

I personally don't think the club should be drawn into raising money for individual players as where do you set the bar on 'deserving cases'?  For example, Michael Clunan has been out for a good while now too.

Got to disagree here with the idea that fundraising should go to the club first and foremost. The manís played 9 years for the club, and needs support from the supporters. Those saying surely he had sufficient insurance in place to cover his losses; the existence of the collection would appear to negate that proposition. The club succeeding is great, but if weíre to be a community club, that involves caring for the community at the club.

Thatís a lot of money but I think heís worth more me thinks

With his contract up in the summer anyway?

If Oxford or anyone have offered 250k I would suggest he would have been delivered there by Bentley by now.

Indeed, as good a player as he is, a quarter of million would be too much to turn down.

Would suggest that rumour is wishful thinking more than anything else. Though an offer from Oxford may have occurred, probably not for that much.

Is it maybe linked to the murder that happened earlier?

Jordan Sinnott, 25 died hours before kick-off. Was an Alfreton player on loan at Matlock.

Unlinked to the murder near the ground the night before.

Hopefully heís there as rotation/an option on the bench, not as a signal of Marriottís departure. (Though starting to think if Marriott was going heíd have gone by now).

Donít really remember him standing out particularly in the Boston games, but sounds like an astute piece of business.

The team tipped to go down at the start of the year, beat the team tipped to win the league, to go 4 points clear with 2 games in hand. What a time to be a Lynn fan.

Best league attendance since the1960ís, team playing with real flair. If only a third of the big match fans that came today come back, would should be at about 2000 average. COYL.

ďOur fixture away to @GCAFCofficial has been arranged for Monday , February 10th with a 7:45 kick offĒ

Iím guessing it being a Monday is linked to the Leamington game that was on the 8th being postponed.
