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 Yorkís 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 itís 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.

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.

You won't get glasses on match day.

Not like it's just a Lynn thing, loads other places do the same within and out of football for a variety of reasons.

Following on from this, said club has folded.

Apparently Cleeve was going to take them over, but failed some fit and proper test for ownership, so takeover didn't go through. Not sure how true it is.
