These prices are high for this level and no one wants to pay more but if it helps fund a drive for success then I am prepared to pay the extra to support the club in giving it a go.

I feel that most supporters (customers will have different ideas) will be prepared to give the club the benefit of the doubt for a season but If this success is not forthcoming then I would expect the prices to be reduced to normal levels for Step 3 football, otherwise attendance figures may start to fall

News of former Linnets / Re: Gary Mills

His sacking does appear harsh but their recent run of results- only 1 point in the last 5 matches - does look like relegation form. The bottom 4 go down from that division and Corby are in the bottom 4. Being in such a perilous position, the club probably thought they had nothing to lose by sacking him. It will be interesting to see where he goes to next.

I can't go back any further than 2010 so not really qualified to comment.

I'd be interested to know what some of the older supporters remember of Keith Rudd as a player.
I've met him a few times through coaching and have enjoyed working with him: great coach and a fantastic bloke with some side-splittingly funny anecdotes!
 

The amount of time you have been watching the team is inconsequential, you can still have an opinion of who you have liked in the time you have been watching  :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

When I first started watching Lynn they were in the UCL. The player that made the biggest impression in those first 2 or 3 seasons was Spriggsy. I know he didn't quite cut the mustard at step 4 but I loved his football: quick, great feet - could go off his left or right - took defenders on and had a bloody good shot on him. I still recall his winning goal in the home match against Coalville in the 2012/13 season. Quigley took a quick free kick to Spriggs, who raced forward and hit a beautiful low shot into the far corner to make it 3-1 to Lynn against our biggest rivals for promotion that year. It was only October but I thought we looked good for promotion after that result in front of 1,100 fans: great match!

My favourite of recent times was Ashley Deeney, the last good Right Back we had. Crucified for one mistake at Long Buckby.

Agree about Ashley Deeney being hung out to dry for that mistake. I thought he was an excellent player too. Setch had a habit of scapegoating players for a poor result either by dropping them or dumping them!

That was in 2006

by 2014 the weekly wage bill was quoted as 2,700

2,700 is 18 x 150

Is that overall 150 or excluding amounts paid by 'sponsors'  Stan ?

I don't know Mallard. Are you suggesting that in reality they might be paid more but "indirectly" via sponsors?

FC United also have a policy of not paying more than 150 week per player, I seem to recall.

At Salford.

http://www.pitchero.com/clubs/salfordcityfc/news/season-2017-2018-season-ticket-and-match-day-admis-1778764.html
I presume that means supporters can expect extremely competitive admission prices if their Club has adopted the White Knight / rich benefactor style of Club ownership!  :dontknow:

Salford's match day ticket price will still only be 10 and season tickets work out at an average of 4 per game. I seem to recall that FC United also charge prices similar to Salford. Both clubs attract larger attendances than Lynn: Salford's last home game = 1,442; FC =2,375.

funny stan, i will quibble over 2 extra, might not be alot for some but others like me, who have a young family and a 3 year old boy whos just started coming with me, with the price of electric, food and water etc going up, its harder to find the spare cash so yes, i have the right to quibble.

what if the season goes to pot next year? then what
new supporters will be put off? reliaing on the regulars to cough up
the price of snacks and drinks at the club is stupid.

i save 15 to come to a match with my son, leaves a fiver to get us both a drink, now, whats it going to be?

its not as easy for others and people like you are to blind to see how hard it is.

So Turtle, whilst I sympathise with your money problems - I am not from the landed gentry either - are you saying that you would prefer the club not to achieve success because that would price you out of being a supporter? Whilst I realise that League 2 ambitions appear far-fetched, are you suggesting that you would prefer Lynn to sink back to Step 5 so at least the tickets would be affordable?
The trouble is that "people like you are too blind" to see the big picture.

Bit harsh on someone who does make the effort Stan,people will pay the extra, but as Turtle84 has said some people only have x amount of money to spend, and will spend just that. Just a shame that you have to stoop so low as to belittle someone who has less income than you!!!  :banghead; :banghead; :banghead;

With regards to your accusation of stooping low Griss, the amount of insults that I have had to put up with from you on here is a case of the pot calling the kettle black and then some!
Explain how I was stooping low? I thought I was making a valid point or two.
How on earth can you possibly presume to know that I have more income than Turtle?
Why is it acceptable for Turtle to make demeaning comments about me but I don't have to right to challenge that?
Whilst some of your points do betray considerable narrow-mindedness, I never had you down as a complete bigot, but clearly I was wrong; still, the "customer" is always right!

We wouldn't even be having this discussion if Stan had pulled his finger out with the bucket collection,never did hear how it went? :bankrupt: :bankrupt: :bankrupt: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

Don't change the subject Griss: stay focussed and see if you can challenge what I've said. I'd love to discuss it with you. I'm particularly interested in the fact that you don't see yourself as a supporter of the club, merely a customer.

Sorry Stan,were you invited to this discussion? :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

I think I adequately challenged your point,I have proved that you are indeed a customer as you are purchasing something,ticket for the match'purchased',beer or other beverage'purchased', crisps or other item of food'purchased',scarf or bobble hat'purchased,by purchasing all the afore mentioned you have made yourself a customer who is a supporter of the club,by being a customer you have supported the club. At no time whatsoever have I said I'm not a supporter of the club,I have 'supported' the club all my life,probably spent enough money there over my life to 'purchase' the club,then you would be my customer Stan. :cheers: :oldman" :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

I don't believe that a football supporter is a customer; you do. Neither of us is right or wrong Griss: it's just a different set of attitudes and different belief systems. It all started with Thatcher's no such thing as society stuff; you accept those sort of values but I will continue to challenge them.

If I was a CUSTOMER of King's Lynn Town FC, I might question price increases and raise issues like value for money and other materialistic clap trap but I'm not: I'm ( I know you don't agree with this Adam) a SUPPORTER! The clue is in the word: I SUPPORT the club and if that support is realised through paying more at the turnstiles and that results in a bigger budget and a bigger and better squad, then I will put my hand into my my pocket and pay the extra money that the club needs to fund success. If  that success doesn't materialise well, at least we tried: better to have a go and fail than not to try at all.

Can you blame Cleeve for avoiding a dialogue with a mob of penny pinching reactionaries who quibble over over the the price of a packet of cheese and onion? Cleeve, the club and its ambitions would have been a hostage to fortune at such a meting; he was wise to avoid it.
