Their number 10 did apologise on Saturday for getting Rory sent off at the Walks by deliberately missing the penalty !!!

I would have been disappointed if I had gone today and seen a weakened team fielded by either side. I think Ian and the boys want to win every game and play with pride and passion. I have not been disappointed so far this season . I pay my admission enjoy ALL games and wouldnt have the audacity to tell Ian how he should select his teams.

Nice day out in Alfreton. Friendly town. Good ground and pitch. Draw a fair result with Alfreton's missed penalty and Adam hitting the post near the wnd. Lots of commitment from both sets of players. Looking forward to Tuesday and then the trip to York. Come on you Linnets!

So the excitement of the FA cup looming. We have already met Alfreton once this season and hopefully the opposition will manage to stay on their feet this time!! and no Oscars awarded for play acting. We need to field our strongest team and as long as we deal with the long hoofed ball we should be fine. Play our passing game and keep our temperament!
The magic of the FA Cup e.g. Ronnie Radford's Hereford goal against Newcastle; Brighton beating Wisbech 10-1 in the sixties ( I was there!).
Next after the FA Cup a weekend in York. Steam railways, chocolate , historical buildings and a decent performance from Lynn.
Exciting Days!
p.s. there is a steam railway just down the road from Alfreton ( Midland railway centre at Butterley)

Team for Telford should include Brunel, Brindley,Darby, Outram and Rennie. That should help to ENGINEER a victory!

I have seen two games at Buxton this season against Coalville and Grantham. The pitch seems small but looks great and the games were fast, but not particularly skilful. One of the highest grounds in England( over 1000 feet; take some extra oxygen! and take care of your knees if you walk up from the town centre and if like me you have spent most of your life on the flat in the Fens- excellent mobile phone signal as there is a mast behind one of the stands.)
Admission, cup of tea, programme and 50/50 ticket came to 10! Haven't partaken of the chips(2) or the pies, but they look and smell great.
Friendly venue and the crowd will appreciate good football. I predict a Lynn victory and some more revenue for the club!

Norwich being at home probably meant a lower attendance at Lynn with their supporters being reasonably happy at the moment.
On prices, I was in Buxton last week and saw their FA Cup game against Coalville. Admission was 6 with tea being 1. The pitch (the highest in England!) looked a great surface but unfortunately was spoilt by a game of "hoof ball". Coalville looked a half decent team (they won the replay 4-1).
I am tempted by the league cup game at Tuesday but only if the teams take it seriously and then choose either Norwich v Stoke or Lynn's FA cup game on Saturday!

A great night and now a "festival of football" to look forward to. Wisbech going for the UCL title on Saturday and Lynn for promotion on Monday. Well done IC and the team (PLEASE TEAR UP YOUR RESIGNATION IAN!). Under the manager's guidance the two Cameron's have recaptured the magic they were showing as part of the Norwich youth set-up and all the other players have developed.
If not Ian next season Simon Lappin as player-manager please! ( an exemplary professional and excellent role model for all in the team)
If not Ian or Simon, Paul Raynor ( time to leave Mr Evans and set out on your own!)
