General Discussion / Re: Wealdstone

Fans could relate with the Jarv’s, Gash’s etc it all felt right.   Now we are at step one then players came in from here there and everywhere.  No link up or connection with the fans.   Maybe we need to give the transition a bit longer to see if there will be a bond.

These are exactly the thoughts I'm thinking.

I'm not saying the current crop are a bunch of mercenaries, but there doesn't seem to be many who will "fight for the shirt"

Aaron Jones, when he came on yesterday acknowledged the crowd immediately and played with passion - and I didn't see that from any of the others.

I'm not saying the players play to lose, but I do question the effort to win??

As Mallard says, we loved players like Gash, Jarvis, McCauley, Fryatt, Hendo, Street - even Lee Stevenson & Dan Quigley because we felt they loved playing for the club and would always give their all.

The current crop may gel, but they have to understand they are in for a scrap this season.

I hope they have the desire for it

A trend is developing here - if you don't take your chances while you are on top, it will bite you in the a**e

Same against Dagenham, same today

Played some good stuff today, but all the possession in the world doesn't count for much if you don't convert the chances.

Junior Morias - just a poor mans Leon Mettam for me - he averages one goal in five appearances throughout his career, so he's due one soon (hopefully!!).......I'd love nothing more than to be wrong about him and for him to go on a goalscoring run and end up with 20+ goals this season - but can anyone se it happening??
Twice today (one offside) he failed to even hit the target from six yards out, he was moaning at his team mates too, I'm really not convinced with him

The crowd - 885 isn't great, but what was even worse was hearing Wealdstone's support and we didn't even muster one song all match - have the ultra's had enough?? They are our most vocal section of support, but didn't see any of them there today

Really frustrating today as Wealdstone were ****e.......and ****e with only ten men too, so we really needed a result

The actual match was frustrating as we played some good stuff, but the old cliche of not taking your chances (especially whilst on top) will come and bite you on the arse - and it did.

Still early days and a long way to go, but personally, I question the goalscoring of Morias & Omotayo

Morias is an average of 1 in 5
Omotayo averages 1 in 4 matches.

Attendance?

Low.

I know people have their own reasons for not attending - I couldn't do the Chesterfield match because of work - but it really looked like a poor attendance today.

It must have looked even worse on the telly

For future games, one of my concerns is segregation - and I mean proper segregation.

As has been said, the Tennyson Road end should be all away fans only,

Saturday, there was an element of colourful characters from another Norfolk club (We can all guess who I mean) and there was a spot of bother just after half time.

We will get some (more) big away followings at The Walks this season and I fear things could get worse if said "colourful characters" continue to come to Lynn - because at the end of the day it will be the club itself which is fined / docked points.

Selling tickets on the day of the game isn't a bad idea to get more fans in, but those fans need to be in the correct area's of the ground - as we move up the leagues, gone are the days of moving to which goal we are attacking

No crowd trouble that I am aware off

Apart from half time where a good few of Norwich's hooligan element kicked off, were herded up and some escorted from the ground!!

General Discussion / Re: Clunan

Never mind this league, I personally thought he wasn't good enough for the previous league!!

I spoke to a former player regularly a few months back and asked about Clunan - I was informed that he is highly thought of in the (previous) dressing room, amongst the players as a "good rep" for the players and also helped "sort things out for the players"

I think he will be found wanting in this division - in my opinion Ethan Coleman and Joe Rowley already look better midfielders than Michael Clunan

Who has been a good servant to the club - but I always used to argue, if Clunan was that good, why haven't other clubs come in for him??
