Well, just.listened to the video and IC seems pretty upbeat.
Like many clubs we will be going with a small squad, as he foresees only 2 more additions.
Presumably one must be a forward, as we only have 2 currently.

Let's hope IC can get the best from what he has got.

At this stage I am feeling that we will need him to.


May be there will be the odd loan along the way too.



I am kind of intrigued and perplexed at the same time....in that they seem to want to present the idea of a community club.......yet not doing much to promote it and involve fans as far as I can see......and they need extra revenue, but SC silent and no Commercial Manager......... doesn't add up to me..........maybe I am missing something........ wouldn't be the first time ha ha !

Can see plenty of positives in a tie up with Norwich U23ís.   David Wright being in charge.  Now thereís irony for you.

Just hope the tail doesnít wag the dog.  Norwich are a big powerful set up now and many teams would be happy to have that tie up.  Does it come at a cost ?

Everything comes at a cost. No such thing as a free lunch.

If there's no money about, this could well be seen as a life line.


Yes I think that's a really important and valid point B&G. Improving theconnections between the two clubs could be hugely relevant going forward, if things get tight for any reason

No long term contract commitments.  If a player is injured then no further outlay.   Players coached in a way that fits with ICís ideas.  Locally based players.  Wages on a level that is acceptable.  A decent size pool of players to tap into.   Pre-season game bringing in much needed finance.

Iím sure there are others that others could add.

What do you see as the negatives ?

Overall I think it could be pretty positive.
Potential negatives are issues mentioned in earlier post on this thread, plus the danger of the club losing it's identity from the fan base's point of view...  ..can imagine quite afew not wanting to become a "Norwich suburb" overnight.

Iím a little concerned we havenít ďnickedĒ any players that other NL clubs wanted.  Could be wrong on that, and hope I am.  Still need a couple of ďmajorĒ players, if possible.  I appreciate how difficult it is, but we have to be more fluent and potent than last season, very unfortunate though it was.  Was anyone impressive against Chelmsford ?

Do you think we will see quite a few players coming on loan from Norwich this season?

The new tie up seems to have become very close all of a sudden.


Personally I hope not. I think it's fine and dandy to have a couple of loanees to come off the bench from time to time, but otherwise selection becomes inconsistent as does the pattern of play and the team spirit gets eroded. I would far rather we try to build a squad which can be together for a number of years.

Undoubtedly B&G..........becoming a little tiresome even for the best of the UK population.


I am equally concerned and at the same time intrigued about what may be going on behind the scenes at the club............ hopefully whatever is consuming SC's time will be positive and bear fruit......indeed a heavy crop of fruit

That seems very odd...then so many decisions do at the moment.

From a football concern , it seems that there's a possibility that things may be tightened up when schools go back, which could affect attendances

Big thing with Mazza last year was the injury he picked up in pre season......it meant his pre season was compromised and of course his strike partner Gash, was ill.

I feel Mazza wanted a fresh challenge, so I don't see it as Lynn's haste that has resulted.in him leaving.....I believe he needs the new challenge to perform at his best......and Barnet are building a strong squad by the seem of it.


Re Fox....well I and others have said before...good going forward but found wanting on numerous occasions in defence in the league below...feel we should trust IC's judgement on that one......he did play at full/wing back for a number of years at a decent level.

In the absence of any news of any sort from The Walks, here are results from some friendlies:

Bedford 2 Wealdstone 2
Weymouth 1 Swindon 0
Barnet 2 (inc special free kick from Marriott) Peterborough 3

Barnet have just signed a Peterborough midfielder on a season long loan.

Yes, well I am hoping that most is the low interest loan from last year and monies due to SC.

To me things don't add up  financially, currently.

Going full time, all the extra analysts etc etc

No new sponsorship of note, uncertainty of crowds for coming season.

By his own admission SC can't put in any more, so this is the season where something really has to happen to balance the equation.otherwise it could well be "Pop".

The current silence at the club on the financial income side is deafening..there must surely be some news soon

Yes I am a little concerned too about what that might mean....he might have gone abroad and can't get back.....or he might.be pursuing the 2/3 ideas he had to make things viable going forward.

Also no news on a Commercial Manager.


Makes me think a big announcement might be round the corner...if not a big sponsorship, will SC agree to share the club with an investor ?

Chelmsford will be more of a test for trialists to have a second showing I guess..lets hope it goes ahead.....lots of friendly call offs starting to happen due to Covid
