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.

Opening day of the season, a League higher, away from home.  Think we need to be solid KES.  Old saying if they donít score we canít lose.  Anyway Kelly has got a yard on him.  If we need to change it there are other attacking midfield options on the bench. Plus we have two strikers who will be a handful for a lot of teams this season, for different reasons.

All about Opinions KES.

They finished 19th last season.

After season before finishing rock bottom of Conference, and two seasons before just finishing outside relegation zone.

Granted they've played at a higher level for longer, but they've won just 40 games in their last 180 league games so have a losing mentality around the club. Won 5 home games out of 21 last season. Game where King's Lynn have to be approaching going for the win if they want to have a solid season.

Any news if there'll be a similar tournament as there was last year? Was thinking the weekend of July 20th if there were to be? Charlton I assume will be last friendly with league I'm sure starting first weekend in August. That'd be 6 pre-season games (if there is a tournament), which would be enough.

Got to think Tony that the 4 coming in ( including the returning Stewart ) are better than the players leaving (FBT excluded of course from that).  Then again if there is a couple more coming in then it stands to reason that maybe the likes of Stewart and Carey could be farmed our on loan.  No point in those lads coming in from step 5 to play at Step 6 for The Reserves.

 I also feel the same about Limb who added nothing at step 3 so retaining him once promotion was secured seems a very strange decision.

I'd assume the Limb one would be because he's on a hefty amount, so instead of having to pay out his contract, you may as well keep him and hope either he kicks on because the ability is in there, or a club will be happy to take him on loan and pay part of his wages. No point shelling out a big amount to release him, to effectively get a back up striker for the time being who could be a dud. Gash/Marriot got injured for a spell, then things might change.

Feel a CB is all that's required. Likely a RB too if Burrows doesn't commit.

One player I'd like to see the club get, is Matthew Stevens. Contract ends this summer at Peterborough, and he's scored the goals at Kettering/Slough past two seasons and would be a shrewd signing I feel. Young, proven goalscorer at this level and potential for a sell on.

Think a top quality defensive midfielder could be the key signing.

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?
