General Discussion / Re: Torquay away

It is not just the number of people watching, its the whole thing, ground....sponsorship.....playing structure with succession plans...and of course Money...Lynn are just not funded or set up for this level. However this is just at the present. The future may be different the current regime and structure is not strong enough for this at the present time. The only possible outcome for this season is that other teams with similar weakness end the season below Lynn. Even this may be negative because, even without anything published, the debts must be mounting. .
The match by match situation, before Christmas, is very much like during the pandemic with player being added ad hoc just to make numbers and absolutely no sign of a settled side and squad.  ............. It may well be all over...but they have not told us yet...

According to the Lynn News report, Barrett and Taylor both out with hamstring issues.

It said on Radio Norfolk that Barrett's injury was related to the the one he picked up at Bristol Rovers in February.
If so another flaw is exposed, obviously a physical and injury history assessment (medical) should have been thoroughly completed. This should have identified this frailty, hiring and paying injured players at this level is not very bright.

Yes, but leave this out, it could be very personal, find a more appropriate example of criticism, directed at the clubs communications. Astounded!!!

If the attendance does not increase as the level of the game climbs, then it is a sure indicator that the club has gone beyond the level it should be. Histon , Rushdon etc etc ...The public either do not like the price or there just is not the interest, until a play off final or cup run is on offer. Two levels to high....

I fear you are spot on. At this level Lynn are inevitably going to struggle ON the pitch to keep their heads above water, full time or not, and the facts are that at these admission prices, unless the team is winning, a lot of people who have come for years on and off, are not going to turn up.
I can’t see the current situation being sustainable for long but I just hope we don’t fall down as far as the two clubs you mentioned did, when sadly, things go “bang”!
The Key word you added to my post, in reply is sustainable...with these attendance without a sustained sponsor, then yes Bang is the result.

I do not think he thought it was that important, he was just saying the right thing at the right time.

It is the playing two games that is the problem...waiting to see the fate of Dover whilst trying to boost ones PPG. Not going to work , the NL will delay the Dover situation knowing full well that if they are rightly lenient, other clubs will throw the towel. As for PPG, the afore mentioned Dover scenario will see the other clubs fulfil the fixture requirements and PPG will not be required or any use at all. SC get on with playing out the season, reasonable loans available , after public funded grants had to be stopped to ensure other vulnerable sectors of society get help. Why keep moaning about this single point? the grants are gone , lets see your plan B , which should not be playing two more games with no actual reasoning as to why!!

I agree with something on those lines , as I have suggested earlier in the thread. my concern is that ( and maybe the reason for not considering this) with no solid assets other than a few balls , ground sheets, posts, pub fittings, burger bar  and maybe some out of date cider all coupled together with a connection to a dubious financial past....would we actually be offered a loan? if it were applied for????

League rules, like the one that faces Dover are "live/adjustable" and by controlled measures influenced by such eventualities as a pandemic or simply a decision evolving from an observation can be changed. All regulatory process operates like this. Hence the discussion on what Dover will be done for and what the price will be. In a normal world, Dover and the rest of us would know what they were in for. The same applies to any constitution surrounding loans.

Mr Cleeve is a businessman, why seek and pay expertise that is already on board? Sitting on the fence is very poor , watching the Vultures over the Channel town that is Dover and hoping the League are lenient, is ridiculous. Playing two more games has no meaning or plan attached to it. Closing the shop could cost more than the loan repayments in terms of punishment. The National League are playing the game, and will be aware of the thought process of the likes of Cleeve. The options available, including the loan must be considered.

Thank you, so the Chairman (who must be praised for paying the weeklies to date, from the previous grant and very recently his pocket) has options, but his business sense determines taking a loan will dissolve the club? even if the terms seem practical and reasonable considering the situation. He who dares wins, Kings Lynn will always have a football club and I think many clubs must be taking in loans funds right now. Interesting times and very sad, but if there is a glimmer of hope in preserving current status it must be an option. The risk here appears to stay with the loan provider, and quite rightly so!!

I am not up to speed with the finer detail, finance is not my thing. However I read and note that the club was supported along with all the other clubs by a Covid situation grant last year and mid pandemic. Now a facility is on the table but this is a method of loan , not grant. I guess the country is tight and so many need additional cash where it cannot and will not be paid back, and even clubs that are not rich but are able to survive in non pandemic times cannot qualify. Therefore the one question that should be followed through is :- What are the loan terms offered to National League Football Clubs? are they sympathetic , an example of this is student loans, and maybe a recovery period before any repayment is required on those lines. Or is the offering aggressive with rapidly rising interest rates etc etc. I have probably missed the answers to this but remain curious, many clubs you would expect to be in the "struggling" group voted to play on ? therefore how? If the terms were of the sympathetic type, would the trust be keen to get on board? and maybe help preserve current club status.

Tupist as I said in my post that initiated your involvement here, more is expected of a full time club and no excuses, since then all you have done is try to excuse a growing number of poor detail from Chesterfield.

The other side is:- you expect the full time club to be more organised and decisive when it comes to this type of situation, it was snowing most of the day over there. Shambolic Chesterfield with absolutely no excuse Lynn should recover travel and wage expenses for this, even if they have to push for it! !!!

So, no evidence of a settled side, normally a managerial priority at this level, where "horses for courses" does not work. Starting players without the credential, experience and therefore ability for this level, and players with the required leaving the club. Added to the situation we all face with the Covid and National League uncertainty, this is a difficult time for the club.
Certainly, this is the MAX for the club in these times and avoiding relegation will fail if selecting and playing like this continues. Just not quite big enough to cope with all in front, and the full time clubs are showing us why.
