I was in the North stand (Chicken Run  :laughcry:) on Tuesday evening.

As creatures of habit we stood in out normal place, opposite the tunnel.

At kick off the area where the KLTFC Choir stand was clearly going against social distancing guidelines. Now whilst I have some sympathy for the stewards and club officials (it must be like trying to heard cats with any fans, let alone us lot) they should have known what would inevitably happen and made some plans to mitigate against it. Segregation of each area and limits on the amount of people in each are a good idea but need to be controlled by the stewards starting from when the gates are opened, not from half time, and this needs to be clearly communicated to people when they enter the ground.

As a business the club has a duty of care to anyone who enters the ground, so all of the above should have been know about and planned for in some form of procedure or crowd control policy. If this was subcontracted out to an events management company then they would have to provide this documentation to the club. It seems that a link in the chain has broken somewhere and this either hasn't happened or wasn't actioned.

Either way, whilst I acknowledge that the KLTFC Choir were in the wrong, they shouldn't have been allowed to get into that situation in the first place.

I'm really pleased with the words I'm hearing from the other teams managers ref our style of play. OK, were shipping goals in and maybe missing the fox-in-the-box striker. But..... lets look at the furloughed players we have added to the part-time status of the team. A couple of signings to shore up midfield coupled with a shift to full-time and I think we would have a side that wouldn't disgrace its self at all next season. COYL

If the reports are true and we need £400K to get to the start of next season (assuming we can then have a viable number of fans back in the Walks) then why on earth would the club consider bringing players back on furlough for what, to us at least, are nothing more than training games?

I thought that SC mentioned in one of his podcasts that Sport England asked him to apply for £500k but he said that was far too much, ( I believe he mentioned £300k?) I got the impression that if the club took the loan we would have the furloughed players back as there would be the money to pay them. Maybe another decision has been made to use this as an extended pre-season? I hope that if this is the case then then we get any new players on contract before they are poached, I also hope itís an idea from IC and team and not forced on them.

That's back to Setch playing budget level isn't it? :dontknow:

Possibly, but if quality now costs less then I believe itís a good thing. Granted itís the chairmanís view of one contract, but I can see his point.

As for yesterdayís game, another cracking performance. I really feel for the players and management team, itís playing for pride now, and yesterday they showed it.

Didn't understand why Clunen played yesterday, he is low on form and confidence, Whats wrong with Sam Kelly?

Likewise, I think the team looks very unbalanced every time he starts. There seems to be no working understanding between the midfield players when heís on the pitch, couple that with poor corners and poor free kicks my feeling, as sad as it is, is that National League is a step too far for him. I understand the management teams ethos of keeping the squad together through a promotion, but weíve managed back to back promotions and itís showing in a couple of players. This isnít me being negative, just realistic.

Total domination of the pitch, 3-0 win, Gash with a superb performance, Marriot hat-trick, midfield stitched up and a back line that holds tighter than a (insert your own inappropriate innuendo here). COYL  :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

Apparently McFadden will be available for selection this Saturday.

Good news, but after a superb defensive performance against Barnet would you change the back line?

I don't understand why anyone would have bought a season ticket this season with all the uncertainty (unless they really, really wanted to keep 'their' seat for 2021/22 season) but I still think they should be paying to stream cup games.

TonyM, this is the first year I have bought a season ticket. I got one for myself and one each for the kids. There was a fair bit of thought in this, after last seasons fantastic results and the way the team has played football on the pitch we wanted a way to show that we supported the playing team and the club as a whole. We decided that we would get to as many home games as possible this year so a season ticket gives us an economic gain in a normal season. With CoViD restrictions looming during pre-season it was obvious that if limited numbers were allowed into the ground then it would be season ticket holders first and we don't want to miss that chance. As it became clear that we would not be watching at the Walks it also became clear to me that the club would need as much support financially as possible, so I was happy to let the club have my season ticket money to carry on with the National League project. The streaming for season ticket holders has come as a bonus to us as and its something that I didn't count on having, so Mr Cleeve, thank you for that one.

We've all got our own reasons for the ways we financially support the club and in my mind this was the simplest way to allow me to do that. Other people may be happy to add to the 'war chest' or give to the ground development fund. My thinking is that a season ticket shows the club that my intent was to support throughout the season and the monies will be allocated by the club with that in mind.

Keep the Faith, COYL
