General Discussion / Re: V County

Good turnout by Lynn fans today -229 or something like that and good vocal support

I think, in all honesty, Notts County were the better team today - we all had hope when Gold opened the scoring but after that it was pretty much one way traffic.

Lynn looked a little leggy at times, but they all tried their best as far as I'm concerned - a couple of them looked genuinely gutted when they came across to acknowledge the travelling support at the end

Seems like two points got away today, but we go again

Michael Clunan's goal though........was at thgat end of the ground behind the net and it was majestic.

Reminded me of Georgi Kinkladze for City vs Southampton many moons ago!!

Regarding the match, it was the first one I've actually "enjoyed" for a long while, despite the result.

First half, personally, I was getting the hump a little as it seemed some of the players were just going through the motions - then we scored just before half time.

Not sure what Tommy said to them at half time (or Tommy's coaching team as the coach (Mark Hughes??) was very animated on the touchline, showing great passion)

Anyway, second half, we really deserved something from the match - I'll not start moaning about the officials as it won't change our performances

Absolute worldy of a goal for our second from McGavin

Passion, fight (literally) and desire from most of the players........and not wanting to jump on the lads back, but Gold is so frustrating to watch, he must be astounding in training for him to continuously get picked.

So, while nobody wants to lose, I can accept losing as long as we have a right good go at it - and second half today, we did

I don’t think “interesting” is the word I would use if he plays that Southern League standard son of his AGAIN!!….I could think of one or two more appropriate ones!

Completely agree about Widdrington jnr.

As I've stated before, I've questioned Clunan a god few times in the past, but my days, Clunan puts Widdrington to shame in both attitude and application and talent.

Actually felt sorry for Clunan while he was warming up as a sub in the first half.

Regarding the match on Tuesday, I've watched football for many years and this game is one where nothing would surprise me.

If we got drubbed 6-0, it wouldn't surprise me
If we won 1-0, with all that's gone (going) on with this set of players, it wouldn't surprise** me!!

**yes I'd be staggered, but how many times over the years have we seen it happen in football

I think the thing with Tommy is we don't really know what he has inherited - what sort of a state the club is in, both on and off the pitch.

So, he will need time to sort it out - if it is a mess and if he is the man for the job.

Football is a results business (as we all know) and at the moment he isn't getting the results - be that down to his tactics/selection, or the players or a combination of both.

I listened to him on Radio Norfolk after the match and he was clearly unhappy, but he put part of the blame on the personally, I will never see the state of a pitch as a reason for a defeat - it's the same for all 22 players out there and Maidenhead's players managed to score four times on that 'bad' pitch

The jury is still out for me with Tommy Widdrington.
Personally I think this season is over and sadly we will be relegated, so if Tommy sticks around, it will be next season we can judge him properly

By the look of a post on Facebook by someone that’s “involved” at the Club this opinion is shared by a quite a few.

Is there a link to this article please??

857. I think that's reasonable all things considered. I would not have been surprised if it had only been around 700/750 (yes, I know its nowhere near enough to fund this level of football).

I think that is a decent attendance.

I don't know how many Weymouth fans were in the seats, but a headcount of the away terrace was only around 20-25 fans, so over 820 Lynn fans, while we are struggling, against fellow strugglers is a decent turnout.

The match - good performance, three goals, clean sheet....... and Barret is quality

February is an expensive month with five home matches - although I cannot make the Altrincham game now it has been moved

Annoying for me personally as I'd already booked next Tuesday off work for the match!!

General Discussion / Stephen Cleeve - Are You a fan Yes/No
« on: January 16, 2022, 10:59:51 PM »
I read all posts on here and there are some interesting - albeit cryptic sometimes - opinions on our chairman.

Whether admin could create a poll here, but I'm just interested in who thinks he is good for the club and therefore a fan of him and those who think he is not good for our club

To start the ball rolling, I'm a fan (still) as I think he gets a few things wrong, but essentially has done a good job

So a YES from me

I made a point of standing close to the dugout today, so I could watch Tommy Widdrington, along with the match - although lets face it, how empty the ground was today, I could have stood anywhere!!

Anyway, it was interesting to see how animated the new manager was - almost kicking every ball, and was encouraged how he put emphasis on getting the ball forward as quickly as possible.
Had to chuckle a couple of times as he asked the subs to give him the names of players so he could shout to them!!

I've no idea where we will end up this season and as I said on another thread am sorry that IC has gone, but once TW has has had a few days / weeks with these guys, I don't think he will suffer any fools and will demand everyone gives 100%  at all times.

As for the match, it's a huge win........and two quality goals from Lynn

See, that's what can happen when we shoot........!!

« on: December 10, 2021, 10:57:19 PM »
When I read the news of the appointment, my initial reaction was "who the **** is that"!!

Been reading about him and I think he may be a, shall we say, colourful character

But, watched his press conference and after a few minutes, warmed to him and am feeling quite excited for the rest of the season - whatever happens.

In another world, I (we) would have loved everything to have worked out with Ian Culverhouse and there is still a part of me which is sad he is no longer the manager of this club...........but, we are where we are and as I said, I'm looking forward to seeing what Tommy Widdrington can bring to the party and where he (and his recruitment) can take us......

"You only score if you take some shots"

"show some passion you bunch of mard arses"

"You got us in this ****, it's down to you to get us out"

Are just three suggestions for our players

Just throwing this out there......

....we are a club operating at non-league level.

Do we actually need a Director Of Football??

I always associate that job role with the likes of Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Real Madrid and other top European sides

This is turning into a decent debate!!

Regarding the issue of Steve Cleeve being good enough for this's a tricky one to answer

I've always compared Cleeve to Peter Swales, the ex Manchester City chairman (I'm a City fan, so I've experienced the "turmoil" of an unpopular chairman!!)

With Peter Swales, he became too "passionate", his obsession to become bigger than utd clouded his decision making and I think Cleeve's obsession with trying to achieve league football, often clouds his judgement of where we are as a club.

I also think the same with some fans' expectations - some thought we would "walk this tinpot league" - not the case, a realistic and successful season would be to finish fourth from bottom.

Another question here is "which players aren't good enough"
For me, they are all obviously "decent" players, but it's how they apply themselves and the desire they show (or not) to win.
As I've previously said, I'm not the biggest fan of Michael Clunan, but this season, he has applied himself superbly and has been one of the better players, the same with Ross Barrows, the same with Aaron Jones - there is a theme appearing here as these are the players who seem to have more of an "affinity" with the club.

I'm not saying the newer signings play to lose, but I question their desire, especially when they know they will pick up their contracted wages regardless of the result - I (we) want players who will go above and beyond in pursuit of 3 points - take Rory McCauly, I always thought he would run through a wall for the manager/thisclub/us fans/himself.........could the same be said for some of the newer players??

I started a thread on here a few weeks back, questioning what is actually done during the week in full time training.
The thread had many views, but no responses, but I ask the question again as it sometimes looks like these lot are strangers rather than a "close knit bunch" which is often the line thrown out after (another) defeat

So, IMHO and it is only an opinion, I think we should stick with IC for the forseeable especially as he has taken the blame for Saturday's defeat and said things will change, so he's worth continuing to have our trust
The chairman - needs to back IC 100%
The backroom staff - need to take a look at themselves.....and back IC 100%
The players - need to take a look at themselves and be willing to "die for the shirt"
Then we, as fans, who will still be here long after anyone else, will back all of the above........because as I said in my original post, football is an emotional sport and whether "we" like it or not, we're stuck with the club!!

It's the club we love

Sorry for the long post.

Finally and on a much lighter note, my other comparison between Peter Swales and Steven Cleeve........their haircuts!!
