Giving his talk of what's needed to break even, I doubt there's one club in this league that is break even especially when some have bigger squads.

Think if King's Lynn keep up this form moving into the new year, you will attendances rise, but like I mentioned before in a different thread, it's a long term process to getting sustainable attendances and so far the club is moving in the right direction. Build a reputation of being a good side at this level, that plays attractive attacking football and allows younger places the chance to showcase themselves to get moves to Pro clubs, attendances will naturally rise to 1500 on a more consistent basis.

Potential yes, but have to remember this is the highest level King's Lynn have ever played so attendances will increase over time if consistency is gained at this level. There's teams that have gone up into the Football League where attendances haven't grown with the multiple rising in levels. The teams that are brining in 2k+ at this level are former league clubs that would have built a fanbase core from their years at that level, King's Lynn are building a core fan base from a level many down. The average that King's Lynn are at moment is very good, if at worse case they were to establish themselves as a regular top half play off pushing side at this level, the club would be regarded as one of the 'big' sides in the league. Pull off a shock and go up, you're still not going to see a jump to the 2k attendances on average (only games where the big sides with a following come) but an average around 1500+ would be another very good step forward.

It's all about building that Step 1-2 fanbase core, and King's Lynn have made a very good start to this and in years to come will hopefully reap the rewards by being a consistent and financially stable side at this level.

Not an ideal draw, away to a tough side, but a winnable one nontheless. Good pitch I think up there, so should suit King's Lynn.

Agree. Plus I'd say a home tie against a higher/big club would be more likely on TV than an away tie.

I'd quite like Ipswich at home. Good narrative with the current Norwich connections. Culverhouse v Lambert. etc. First things first, get through weekend and hope for a favorable home tie in final qualifying round.

Win Saturday nice home draw in the next, then letís think big and have Sunderland or Peterborough at The Walks

Big would surely be 1st round tie away to say a club like Sunderland? If they even get 20k attending, that's 10k share of the ticket price which would be a decent windfall. Home tie is always better spectacle, especially for the fans, but if it's all about bringing in the revenue to help club over next 24 months, the away tie at a big side is the preferred route.

Stan according to the fans forum site he's currently out of favour but the posters are not sure why.

Robinson will be sacked soon anyway. Did at start find it strange that he said Robinson played a factor in him joining, considering it was always likely he would be sacked during the season. Hopefully when a new manager comes in he gets a run of games till end of season.

Wonder how much we got for him 10 k -  20k -  50k  or the usual

Wasn't on contract so we have got nothing (believe he was offered one but didn't want to sign it).

Doesn't club get compensation if that happened because of him being under 23?

Just two wins from winning the league (could win it Tuesday night if Yaxley fail to win). Double header against Daventry. Great turn around considering Wisbech lost 4 of their first 6 league games I think.
