The league will eventually get cancelled IMO. Won't resume till around start of June at earliest.

The government say that the main peak is many weeks away and are not advising people to avoid public events. I think your doommongering is a bit premature Mallard.

I'd be 100% confident that will change by early next week at the latest.

Prem/EFL will be suspending for indefinite. Question then, what about non-league because they too get 1k+ crowds at Steps 1/2, and they'll start losing players to isolation? The income lost from here whilst still paying overheads could and will be crippling for a lot of clubs. Unprecedented stuff across football, and will have long term ramifications IMO if things are still getting worse come June, because do you cancel the leagues or roll them over into 20/21 season? Also have player contracts ending too.

Have to say, BPA came with a game plan and executed it to perfection. You could see what their intent was. They sat two players on Richards/Jarvis which meant they couldn't receive the ball in the middle (pitch was bobble as hell which didn't help), this meant it went to the full backs quite often who had to clip it long as there was no option in the middle. Easily contained throughout that option, because Marriott/Carey couldn't get into the game at all. The breakdown in communication for their goal is inexcusable.

They sat off a lot more 2nd half where the CMs then were able to get on the ball more, but the quality outwide was very poor and delivers bad. Power had a great chance after good play in 2nd half, and just as you thought he would fire into the goal from edge of the box, the ball bobbled up 2 foot and meant it hit the moon.

Southwell will need a run of starts to show his ability, coming off bench late on in those sorts of games will be hard to make an impact. They're more set up for the other way round, Gash coming off the bench to make the impact.

All about the tempo. Lynn start of well like they did against Gateshead and vast majority of games this season, it'll be job done (3-0) at half time and players can be rested up further. Go into with a slow tempo thinking result will come because of gap between the sides, a shock will happen as Chester showed when they didn't approach game in the right manner. Was a scrappy affair at their place earlier in season too.

1100 fans, 3-0 win.

I know you don't really want to take any game for granted, but the game to rotate heavily and rest certain players would be BPA at home midweek, rather then this weekend.

There's arguments for other teams, but IMO this is the toughest game left for Lynn. Gateshead are a well drilled side, and them stupidly only taking 2 points from 9 against the bottom 2 teams is probably what is going to see them finish in play offs rather then pushing to win the league. I'm predicting a 2-1 win to Lynn.

Just looking at previous totals required to go up, and I think 90 points should be the aim and be enough in the end. Only 12-13 season has 90 not been enough (2nd finished on 91) since league went to 22 teams in 11-12.

Keep Walks the fortress it is, the club would be within touching distance of that target.

That's mostly because their wage bill is insanley high, and still paying league 2 wages despite not being anywhere near that quality.

Club will not need to go FT. They can function PT at that level, but if club did establish themselves at that level after a season or two and wanted to kick on, they would need to go FT. I say walk then jog, before you run. Going FT straight away would be a recipe for disaster for the club.

3.  During York’s warm up balls were being loaded into Tennyson Road and cars being struck.  Would it make sense for some kind of high fence netting to be installed to prevent this ?

Think for this it depends on planning permission, because it’s an increased height and it depends on birds etc.

Out of contract in the summer.   From a business point of view would it make sense to
Cash in now or risk him walking away in the summer for nothing.? From a fans and football point of view you would want to keep him and hope we get to the National League.

I know non league clubs require every penny they can get, but I can't envisage he'd attract that high of a fee considering how long is left. You'd probably only be looking at around £10k-£20k I reckon, which could be reinvested in a couple of players, but you're losing his goals so would be a huge gamble.

Mid table and he was scoring this much I reckon owner would be tempted to cash in, but with promotion a real possibility I can see him staying.

Interesting view Tony... league would get my vote over Trophy run every time.

4th Round would see Southport home game moved to midweek. Could be a good blessing because I doubt they'd enjoy that long trip midweek.

SFs would see Kettering (A) and Brackley (H) moved to mid weeks. Again, could argue of all the games to be played midweek, they'd again be best ones. One a short journey giving context of other teams, other a promotion contender who again would possibly rather play at weekend.

Giving the form King's Lynn are in and the football they're playing, this could be the best chance of going to Wembley in a very long time.

One thing which I think is sort of forgotten, is how Lynn have a strong chance of success in FA Trophy. Very much a winnable game against Ebbsfleet who are out of form and just been beaten heavily, and the strong possibility of more Conference sides going out in 2nd round. Favourable draw in 3rd and I would have them high up there to make the final which would be a big achievement.

£36k guaranteed from the replay because it'll be on TV. They go through they'll have a decent pot of money to go for the league next season (or even this season depending what they're like come mid January).

Lollujo on YouTube started an FM save with King's Lynn which will draw some traction to the social media side of the channel. Probably looking at around regular 15k+ views each upload (daily), so whilst King's Lynn remain competitive up the top playing well, it may lead to more viewing the King's Lynn channel.

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.
