Think it will be more than a few weeks Mac.....I suspect 6-8 weeks minimum....and getting back to 'normal'.... hopefully late spring early Summer, if there are no further damaging mutations or set backs. If we lock down within the next 48 hrs and the league doesn't resume till the 1st March or later, I would think it makes sense to make this season null and void for the NL. Lynn have only played 13, Dover only 10, Championship and Premier League teams are much deeper into their seasons and so the top competitions may be able to play to a finish.
Better for the NL to call it off at this stage, when even Torquay can't claim they are destined for promotion, only 16 games in, than try and get teams to play 2/3 matches a week for 3 months in an attempt to finish the season.

Exactly....even this late in the 'game' it would be beneficial if there was actually some mettle and leadership from the top.....all this "some people will do want they want to do" is drivel...some people take this stance because of the wishy washy and confused messages (not to mention the ministerial rule breaking) emanating from no 10, so they believe it is their right and they can get away with it.
For pity's sake, someone in charge take a firm grip, before we have an even greater catastrophe on our hands..........start with announcing on news bulletins a fixed penalty of £500 for each offence for anyone not adhering to social distancing or wearing a mask, payable within 5 days....otherwise assets seized to make the payment.....then see how many people still feel it is their right to flaunt the rules.

Think you will find all football will stop within a fortnight...the case situation is worse than last March, so I don't see how things can stay open for much longer...even with the start of the vaccine.....if only the gvnmt had tightened up much sooner, we might now be in a situation where the vaccine made the difference.

Back to the clichés:

I like "We defended well from front to back".
I especially like this because they seem to realise if they say from "back to front", it sounds even more daft.

Well gents - Certainly agree with your assessment of the atmosphere - nothing more than hopefully enjoyable banter.  We do disagree on aspects of the game, but that’s no problem.  Just a quick nip at KES (!) - I do think “strong” is a highly exaggerated cliche in the game.  You’ll hear commentators and pundits saying “showed his strength” in a situation, when it was obvious that it was either balance or nipping through a gap, and with no contact whatsoever, never mind “strength” !  And I don’t think 80% of the NL players are “strong”.  Whenever we’ve been burned it’s by slippery nipsters !  We’ve lost one ( Loza), but if YouTube is right, Gyasi is an ideal replacement nipster - if he can leap the gap up to NL.  Finally, again HNY to you both, but I must continue to advise managers , etc, some/many I believe got the job by impressing Chairmen by cliches like “character” and “strength” in the interview !  That’s why managers are always getting sacked ! (IMVHO!!)


Oh come on Dilly you are pushing your luck now :laughcry: :laughcry:...you are making me think you have never played the game yourself.....NL players don't have physical strength (?) what planet are you on...even your nipsters rely on core strength and significant body and length strength......if you can't see that.....you need more than Specsavers........message me your address, I will send you a magnifying glass  :laughcry: :laughcry:

With the greatest respect (and I genuinely mean those words) Dilly, some of us have different interpretations of words.
If I say physically strong I am thinking of 80% of all players in the NL....you interpret it as "slogger".
If I say ball winner your interpretation is hooligan or something similar.
Football is a simple game but the requirements to be successful are different depending on the league, the available resources etc. Lynn are not able to fund 11 "total footballers" with searing pace and being part time will naturally not be as  strong or as well trained or even as quick as many of the other squads on a man for man basis.......so there have to be compromises.Leipzig would probably adjust the way they play if coming to The Walks on a cold January evening and playing on a boggy pitch.

Finally can I thank you for your posts this last year...they are always interesting,polite and well intentioned and of course you have introduced some new vocab to The Forum.....incl "the nipster". :cheers:

I think the next 2 months might see a return to the strictest lock down conditions, with things being moth balled for a couple of months......when that happens we may see further emergency funding....it may also be that players will just be  paid a retainer across the leagues, until competitions resume.

Add to that Mall, the two months wages they will be paying him (without incl the extra 42%) for January and February when all non league football is forced to close down for a mid season break ......so all in all significant savings made by the Linnets

Think you have tripped yourself up on your own Festive Tosh there Dilly, my fellow old friend   :laughcry: :laughcry:.....you say in your last line IC is "learning", but according to your repeated posts,  "there is nothing to learn". :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

I say this all in a light hearted manner and in the same spirit as you Dilly...no malice etc whatsoever, but....

IMHO Power hasn't had a great game yet at NL level........he has had some really good runs but without the end product.

I think he has scored one goal...direct from a free kick, which he probably meant, tho some will say he whipped in an intended cross.


I also think it's unfair of us to single him out as he is young and performing as well as many in the side.

He and most of the squad don't yet have the experience of someone like Loza who has become streetwise after 100 games or more at the level.


Our team seems to be gradually improving at this level, not by doing the same things, but by learning that different/additional things are required in order to compete.


Warm regards....COYL
