McCauley has played National League.

Just seems weird that he is dropping to (presumably) part-time football at step 2 of non-league.  I can't imagine Eastbourne are full time so training will be limited to a couple of nights a week so what is the lad going to be doing for the rest of the week?  As I said earlier, if he was at Lynn he could still be involved with some training at Norwich.  I can't see Culverhouse being too sniffy, centre half is certainly one area where we need to strengthen for next season although I would accept that the midfield and full back(s) are perhaps more pressing but personally I don't think the central pairing is capable of making the step up.
McCauley has played step 2 before. I think the centre back pairing are fine Tony.  They've had a strong season together. We obviously need a left sided defender and a bit more grunt in the middle  but if Culverhouse keeps the centre back pairing as it is then he will be confident that they can do the job

Maybe he didn't suit Culverhouse's plans, despite his apparent playing credentials. Perhaps he has family in the south!

Any club that is going anywhere needs a lot more than just gate money, at the level we are at we need every source of income that is out there, just look at most of the clubs at the same level as us ,not many survive on match day income only.

Well said, any amount large or small all goes to swell the coffers.  :comeon:
No one would argue with that or is arguing with that.

So any suggestion that raises funds is viable?
Well, some suggestions are better than others, of course. So not any suggestion. Some have been daft. There was something about tin cans I seem to recall. A better idea than just a suggestion would be a carefully thought through and costed plan. We can all make suggestions but without some substance behind them these ideas come across as whinging about ticket prices because some feel, wrongly, that ticket prices would be lower if funds were raised from elsewhere. No doubt you will recall those threads Griss.


Of course I recall those threads, I think another suggestion was solar panels, but you didn't mention that one? Nice that you managed to bring yet another thread around to admission price?  :dontknow:
I think you'll find that MA Hill raised the issue of ticket prices on this thread Griss, not me. I just feared it would ignite more of the ticket price nonsense that we've had before. The solar panels idea did appear to be a good idea to be fair but to make it happen someone needs to take ownership of the idea and turn it into a project that becomes reality. Now that would be impressive. We'd all get behind that. What is the latest on the solar panels idea Griss? Why don't you try and make it happen? Building and construction is not something I know anything about but it sounds as though you do.

Is that the same C Jones who 3 current Premier League clubs are interested in signing?



Jefferson airplane, blimey that’s going back.
 Maybe we will have an A Jones at Right back and a C Jones at left back. He won’t have to travel far up the A47 either.
Its certainly a lot closer than Eastbourne, so that's got to be in our favour!

We might be closer but just joined Eastbourne, according to online reports.

Seems strange given IC's connections and how much the lad could learn from him plus you would have thought our 'reputation' of trying to get the ball down and play would have been the perfect fit if he was going to drop down to a step 2 non-league side.  Maybe Neil Adams is one of those who thinks the North is more physical, I don't see it myself but would still be interested to know the thinking behind the loan, if he was with us he could still train some days with the Norwich u23s.
Is he a left sided player?

Stan; Oh dear, I fear the blue ticket price touch paper may have been unintentionally lit once more: cue incendiaries about fund raising and sponsorship etc.

Wrong thread Griss.


So will the steering committee not be looking at sponsorship and fundraising?  :dontknow:
I imagine it will be a group for constructive discussion and actions. Like I said, "wrong thread."

He's not a former Linnets legend, of course, but a current one. You can't be a former legend or can you?

It is what it is.  Black n white. Pay the new admission cost or don’t go.  Simple


See what you have done now Stan?  :banghead;

I'm glad to see this has had a decent amount of views. I'm not sure that Mr Asher knows this forum exists, unless he uses a pseudonym or two or three or four...

Posh have just bought another left wing-back: Dan Butler from Newport. Tough competition for the former Linnets Legend.

In this league expenses will be higher so it stands to reason that income needs to go up hence the hike in admission charge common sense really to the most of us
