Seem to be making a clutch of signings...most notably John Rooney (brother of Wayne) from Barrow.

Yes, Tall, Strong, Quick, Experienced Centre Half required.
Wonder if Fleming could play in front of the back line if Jarvis isn't part of squad. (?)

Fleming could be a useful addition....a terrier in defence or midfield.

Well I am with you on that one Tony.
It's really important to maintain the balance in the side and not affect the status quo too much with additions.
I thought that adding Loza to the squad would mean we had enough numbers and pace up front.
There's already loads of competition for places up front.. if it does happen, will be interesting to see how IC makes it work.

I do actually agree with much that you say Dilly (though you may not think so from my post)
What I feel personally, that is missing from your reasoning isthat last season and especially the one coming, Lynn are not playing on an even field. Last year some of the sides were full time...this season most are. Lynn have to find a way to bridge the fitness and strength gap...

Nothing personal Dilly, but my side would be much different to see I would have McAuley and Gash in my side every day,  because they get stuck in as well as being able to play....and IMO are central to Lynn's success...they win the ball and bring others into the game and now in the NL I believe we need another one or two like them.
I realise Pep wouldn't pick them and realise you wouldn't either as they are not especially slick or slippery as you would while I am also of the opinion that attack is the best form of defence, you have to have a balance in the side........just of course ,my opinion but I think  your team of 11 slicks and slipperies would still be playing lovely football in step 3 of the non league.

Just opinions of course ha ha

No one has never suggested Cloggers, but with squads likely to be restricted to 20 and Lynn already having plenty of midfielders,a tall athletic, physically strong central defender and a defensive midfielder, to put a foot in, add a measure of calm and distribute well around the park (if Jarv doesn't sign), would seem to be the obvious choices.
IMO we already have plenty of slippery performers and some real pace going forward.
The NL will represent a big jump up physically, just because most train full time........however Lynn's football will be too much for some in the league if we can match them physically.
In open play I think we will do well and Loza adds pace and strength and the new goalkeeping addition also has good height. For set piece defending though I would like a tall strong quick central defender and defensive midfielder added to the squad

I have been waiting for over 60 years to see Lynn in this league and would rather stop paying for Sky Sports. You have got to pay a reasonable price for the league we are now in and am happy to.

Pricing does look to be at the top end of what might have been expected. However, this appears to be what is required to make things work with the current model, so I hope everyone gets behind the club and supports their home town team.. ....after all it's the current model that has brought the lovely football and unprecedented success of the last 3 seasons.

I don't think, personally comparisons with Norwich or Peterborough are valid. Norwich are subsidised by huge Sky money and they are not our home town club. I live and work in Norwich, now, have done for the last 20 years, but prefer to travel when I can to see Lynn...I haven't been to Carrow Rd for 5 years.
Peterborough are not the home town team either and if you're traveling from Lynn, add on your costs of getting there each week into the equation of course

Seems to be that you may need a Chromecast dongle to stream the matches (unless your TV has it built in) ???

Think there is more to the Fryatt situation than we know.
Clearly a number one pick at the season start....IMO either the injury was deemed particularly serious, or there was an issue we are unaware of. Can't personally see him coming back into the fold in those circumstances.
Ward's height would have been useful, but Lynn now have the opportunity to get a quality tall defender on, with good credentials.....think someone with good experience is a must.

Haven't watched a single Prem League game since return from lockdown and can't say I have missed it at all......not really a product that holds much interest for me these days...hugely over rated IMO....... would pay to watch the National League on TV  tho, especially if wages and squad numbers are capped. As to how much, I am not sure, but given travel, a bite to eat and a seat in the stand would be touching 40, maybe even 45 per match at the Walks.....and say I get there 6/7 times a season, that's say maybe that for a year, to see the whole season isn't a bad deal. Suspect those who go more often and attend away games as well, might be prepared to pay more for a season TV package.

KES. BT already offer that.  Most Saturdays they either have a 12.30 or a 5.30 live game from The National League.   They also do a highlights programme in the week covering every game from the National League

Needs re packaging and scheduling so it's not in competition with other Elite Football offerings

I personally think that tv for the national league could do very well, if it finds it's niche. Would think the programme/stream/whatever, would need to be on an evening when there is no other Uk football being live game played on that evening with highlights from the rest of the matches played the previous Saturday.....a bit like the Italian football offering on Channel 4  a few years back on a Sunday.

Lots of people prefer the non league offering....decent standard, no prima donnas, no VAR..........the playoffs could be a good lead up to it, if they are well supported.
