Personally, think it an interesting decision to take the 2 Norwich loanees this season........both undoubtedly talented...... one doesn't naturally fit into the way the team has played so far and the other would be contesting a position against a player who has been one of Lynn's best for 10 years and who is at his peak.

So on reflection, I come to the conclusion that IC probably didn't fancy Pedro for this season. I suspect we are seeing a dismantling of the whole of the old defensive line, with all the old characters leaving, (some of them with strong links to a past manager)....... and the rebuilding of a new one. I fully expect Lupano and Mc Fadden to be in prime position, if the season should continue as far as December.
We will eventually end up with a full squad of Culverhouse 'picks' and no inherited players, which I guess is the way any manager would like it.
In many ways it's easier to do this with matches played behind doors........the Linnets fans are "seeing" a number of favourites leaving, without a huge amount of evidence thus far, that the replacements are better(tho they have the pedigree).
We have to believe, I guess, that tho painful, this is for the greater good and given IC's record and experience, that this will benefit KLTFC in the long run.

Mair is one of two keepers named in the Scotland U19s' squad for the UEFA U19 Championship with games on 11th, 14th and 17th November.

The last two dates are Sutton United and Barnet (both away)

Have to say as well,  it can't now be easy to get someone in with quality and experience as a number 2 to a 19yr old loanee Norwich have a17/18 yr old keeper we could get in :laughcry:

Street has gone from, arguably the no 1 Keeper in the NLN to not even being the number one keeper at Kings Lynn.

I wouldn't agree with that at all, Alex was a 'good' NLN keeper and with him being local I was surprised when IC took Mair on loan but from that point onwards this always looked on the cards.  Agree with points made above re international call ups / next season but lets see what IC does as and when the situation arises.

Wish Alex all the best and hopefully neither party has burned any bridges for the future

All about opinions Tony...I am with Mall, one of the very best if not best inNLN.
We will see how it unfolds very quickly as Mair has been called up for 3 Scotland U19 games in just over a week's time.

Well, not at all surprised he has left.
IMO his  point blank saves and reading of the game behind the centre halves, often rushing out to make up for the lack of pace in front of him, were as important in the last 2 years as Marriott's goals.
I feel he has been treated really poorly and only natural that he should go.
It's a huge faux pas by the club......I personally think he would have been more valuable over the coming season than the two Norwich loanees combined....Mair maybe a great shot stopper, but Pedro has years of experience.
He leaves having played in the matches where we have gained the 4 points. Without him its played 4, points ZERO.
Hope Bastock is doing his circuits in readiness !!!

Just watched the highlights back and once again fine margins.......understandably lacking a bit of confidence, the little things like being fractionally slow to react and being physically levered off the ball in a seemingly innocuous position, leading to goals. Evident that everyone has to be on it for the full 90, both physically and mentally........and yet another dubious pen given against us.
One of those spells where most things not running for the side..........could do with at least one new combative, strong, fast player in defence/midfield by the looks of things...lets hope McFadden is that type.

In IC we trust...COYL !

Yes, good, timely post Dale.........think most on here tho are scratching their heads and collectively looking for answers and ways forward, and believing IC will be able to keep us in this league, rather than being ultra negative.

Lynn with an awful lot still to get right it appears. Weymouth and Wealdstone are in "their mini league" and they have lost to both. Defensively still prone down the flanks and fragile in the centre at set plays and when dealing with a speedster.
When I think back to the great run of last season ( and I appreciate there is a gulf between NLN and NL,) it was with the Fryatt and Mc Auley parnership and with Pedro between the sticks. IMO things  haven't looked so solid at the back since Fryatt was injured and then "left ".
It will take time for new players and systems to gel, no doubt......and very pleasing that Mitchell made such a good first impression.
I personally feel that replacing Pedro, who had been the ever present goalie during all the success, with Mair, has had an unsettling effect on the back line.

I am sure IC is acutely aware that this season could well be shortened by Covid....PPG will come in after around 30 games have been played, should we get that far so we are possibly already one fifth of the way into the season. So over the next 2/3 games we need some of the squad who are yet to step up to the level required,  to really put down a marker and prove they are good enough.

There seem to be a number who are carrying niggles or not at full fitness too.

Be interesting to hear IC's latest views if an interview is forthcoming.

Would go for your line up Tony, but with Southwell and Mitchell for Carey and Kelly.

Notts County feel they have kept a tight ship with regular testing and adhering to strict guidelines of their recent NL opponents had a player who tested positive some time after the match.
The County player he was marking subsequently tested positive for Covid and was the first such result at of course there are a number of others.

Possibly.......I personally always felt Ryan Hawkins had the ability to play at a good level....when given the chance he often produced and was a fairly regular scorer...still think at this level he was a useful squad player, if not a starter.......and perhaps a little unlucky to currently be behind the likes of Loza, Kelly and Power who have the pedigree, but also still have to produce at this level.
