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.

Boston now 3-1 up.

 :scarf:

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.

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.

Think itís two teams that go down these days Tony.

Adam has said in the past that he would like to get back into the pro game.  I guess with so many clubs, seemingly interested in him then it might well turn into a Dutch Auction for his services.
Should be a real money spinner for the Club.

With Buryís collapse itís just one down this year from League 2 Mallard.

Weíve the number of clubs being linked to him, Iíve started to resign myself to him leaving before the league window closes. My hope is that the demand for him leads to a six-figure fee, (and hopefully gets Marriott a good deal too; heís earned it.)

Apart from periods of injury, wHen all squad are fit, I donít believe we need any more players.  We have 4 Centre-halves when all available, plus two very capable of playing there (Jones and Barrows).  In midfield we have 8 to chose from, all well worth a place. Hawks, Limb and Stewart add to the list.  Maybe a GK, and two new forwards should we become disappointed with the effect of market forces !  Of course, the keeping them all fit is the key...

Have to agree that with the whole squad fit, all we really need is possibly a striker or two to come off of the bench (not convinced Limb is the answer here).

However, with the injuries we have, a loanee or two might help. Case in point being the Ebbsfleet game; who are the back four going to be? Payne, Jones, Barrows and Hawkins? Thereís only about 13 players to pick from, so talk of rotation is a bit moot, unless reserves are drafted in.

What a time to be a Linnet. A comfortable 3-0 win in front of 1400+ against a bruising team, (though their no.9 showed his class with that control of the air-ball). The team running rampant in the second half, after a tricky first half of methodically breaking down their two banks of defence after the sending off. They had the patience and the skill to breakthrough Spennymoorís rearguard action, and after the 1st goal went in the game was as good as over, with Lynn marauding around the pitch at will. Marriottís two finishes were class, but for me Richards was MOM; he was in such control and seemed to ghost in to intercept half a dozen passes.

Questions coming out of the game:

1. Was that substitution and ovation Marriottís farewell?

2. What team will be put out at Ebbsfleet? (Though with the number of injuries, thereís not that much scope for rotation anyway)

Lynn squad is now

Street
Bastock

Jones
Barrows
Smith
Fryatt
Ward
McAuley
Fox

Jarvis
Richards
Payne
Henderson
Kelly
Carey
Hawkins
Clunan

Stewart
Limb
Marriott
Gash

Ok some are injured but with 2 new additions to come in then that is some serious bodyís to really turn the screw on a promotion push.

All credit to Stephen Cleeve for supporting all of this.  This level of squad will then compete with the likes of York and Chester, in terms of numbers.

Itís worth noting that in ICís most recent interview he suggested that Payne might be being recalled as he hasnít been getting the starts he wanted.
