General Discussion / Adam Lakeland
« on: December 15, 2023, 04:37:24 PM »
Iíve just watched Adam Lakelandís assessment of the Banbury defeat. He gives forthright opinions, is prepared to admit his players fell short in the first half and is clearly frustrated by the difficultly in bringing in fresh talent. He also says, as you might expect, that the buck stops with him. On paper Lynn still have some good players but sometimes graft and consistency are just as important as talent.
Experience is always vital in relegation battles.  Therefore I wonder why his assistant Sam Walker hasnít been seen in action given his experience at Football League level.
I hope Adam can save Lynn from the dreaded drop, but he clearly needs maximum effort from all his players, every game, and the owner to back him with new signings, once they have been identified.

General Discussion / Lynn FC website

Do fellow contributors have opinions on the clubís website? Whoever is in charge of updating it is clearly not doing a particularly good job. The lead item is still flagging up the postponed match on Dec 2, when in fact Lynn play the rearranged fixture tomorrow night. The pen pictures of the first team squad are missing many faces and still include the on-loan player Lynn manager sent packing for not showing up several weeks ago.
The new administrator appointed a fortnight ago does not warrant a mention and Jodie is included in the list, although the general opinion on this forum is she has moved on. 
I donít like to be too negative when making the occasional contribution to the forum but I think the website is letting the supporters down and shows the club in a amateurish light.

General Discussion / Club website

Whoever is in charge of updating the club website must be on holiday. Lynn have another massive home match tomorrow night but the home page is still showing the postponed game against Telford.
I donít like to be negative on the odd occasion I comment on the forum, but that is very poor. Thank goodness Tommy and his team are on the ball on the pitch.

Comparing football from different eras is always difficult but to older fans often enjoyable. I think those of us who grew up watching Lynn in the 1960s could justifiably make a case for the then Southern League Premier Division being on a par with todayís National League as the so-called Ďfifth divisioní.
It was seen as the most likely supplier of new Football League clubs, although breaking into that virtually closed shop was extremely difficult.
A very good Oxford United side managed it after winning the Southern League and other clubs like Yeovil, Hereford, Cambridge United, Cheltenham, Wimbledon, Barnet, Burton and Crawley have followed over the years.
Lynn more than held their own against such clubs during the sixties and also against very good clubs like Chelmsford, Romford, Weymouth, Worcester and Wellington (now Telford).
Lynn also fielded some of the clubís best-ever players during that time - the likes of Mick Wright, Malcolm Lindsey, Reg Davies, Ronnie Bacon, Dave Brooks, Peter Tough, David Clarke.
Former big stars like Cliff Jones, John Charles, Ted Ditchburn and a host of ex-Football league regulars could be seen at The Walks.

General Discussion / Coming down.

I see on BBC Sport that Southend and Grimsby are about to challenge their relegation to the National League. They see it as unfair that the NL has no relegation and therefore the pyramid system is invalidated. I think they have a justified argument with Dover not playing and the likes of Lynn being forced into going through the motions for many weeks with weakened teams.
Or is it just sour grapes from two clubs who think they are too good for non-league football?  Yet again the appalling decision to allow the NL to play on to satisfy the likes of Notts County and other big clubs has more ramifications.
Interested to hear what other Lynn fans think.
