General Discussion / Re: Saturdayís Trophy game now on at Alfreton
« on: December 17, 2020, 09:24:14 AM »
Pick the team that's best to win the game, simple. Quite a few good sides below already gone out, suspect more this weekend, and with Lynn showing against best in the league last weekend they can go toe to toe on a one off game, there's no reason to not think winning this trophy isn't viable if you get some luck along the way.

Quite a few, because there'll be a number that are asymptomatic, like I suspect has happened at Bedford.

Lynn could have a number, but until one player shows symptoms, then gets tested, won't really know about any others because they won't be tested till then.

Highest scorers, against most conceded. One team on back of 9 wins/1 draw in last 10 league games, against another that lost last 2 poorly, and conceded 12 in last 3 in all competitions. Fans hopefully can push the team to a positive result, because this game could get messy if the team are not strong and on it from kick off.

Just so bad from crosses. The 3rd goal had Smith AND Brown going for the ball, neither marking the actual man that headed it (not sure if one was suppose to be marking him), and it dropping to the Bromley player unmarked to score, which I can only assume one of them was suppose to be marking too. Just the basics all so wrong.

Probably a different game if Mitchell takes his earlier 2 chances and be clinical like Bromley, but in truth probably would have just lost 4-3 instead because defence just so bad again from crosses. The space down the flanks for the counter were criminal too. Going to get constantly punished against the better teams leaving space like that.

Have to 100% be beating Altrincham, but we struggled against them last season. They've shown the step can be done. 28 goals conceded after 11 games is embarrassing, Altrincham only conceded 13 after 13 games. Defences were similar last season, so something has gone wrong.

On a side note, what do people think of Alex Brown? Had a great debut against Yeovil, but I've not been convinced by him since. Seems weak defensively, and lacking the threat going other way to make up for it. Teams seem to know they can exploit those areas, same on the right, as they're a soft spot without the danger to damage other way.

And you wonder how strictly social distancing will be enforced? Will enforcement be proactive or retroactive? If thereís scenes of mass congregating after the first week of fixtures, will this change be one and done?

Giving how people congregated for certain FA Cup games behind goals, I don't think anything would change. There'll be images where it looks like people are packed on top of each other, but as long as some distance (even like 1/2 m) between people/groups then it'll be all fair game.

Bit of dilemma for King's Lynn morally this too. They can take the route of spacing things right out and only having say 1000 - 1200 fans in the ground, or have it a bit less space, and take advantage of Norwich not having full house all season, go for the 2000 mark (or more depending on Tier) and try and tap into potential new fans ready for the following season.

Interesting. If West Norfolk is Tier 2 at most (which I think will be likely), that would mean up to 2000 fans can attend the home game against Torquay on 12th December. If that's the case, would the grant money need to be returned? Because I doubt other clubs would be happy if they still have no fans, but other clubs get fan money AND grant money.

Mair: Barrows, McAuley, Lupano, Brown: Loza, Richards, Kings, Power: Marriott, Mitchell

Get as much pace in the side as possible. Ensure the 2 lines of 4 are closer then normal, slightly deeper and look to counter fast. With the ball, have the wide players pushing on for the outlet.

The amount conceded is the real worry. 24 in 8 games is very poor. Not conceded less than 2 in a league game yet. It really needs sorting out, because teams are playing Lynn knowing there's goals to be had. The main positive still in our favour, are the goals we can score. It's a very good return. So whilst that can be maintained, survival is still viable because other teams would love to have goals from multiple players that Lynn have.

Next 4 league games are big though. Against sides who realistically could be in and around come end of the season. Minimum 7 points from them please.

Shambles. Seriously need to change things up in the league. 23 goals conceded in league and counting. Hopefully that new CB who might be coming can organise things better.

Strong chance it could be on TV. Sure itís something like £25k (might be more) when on TV in the early rounds. Guaranteed £8k even if you lose, so could be another nice windfall.

Right mixture of teams in 2nd round. Always a dilemma now at this stage if you could pick a side. One that's a lesser side on paper, and potential to really get into 3rd round and draw one of the heavyweights. Or take whoever, and if it's a League 1 side away, another chance to cause an upset.

P'Boro away for me ideal. Pompey home/away for the bigger side. Chorley/Marine/Canvey at home for the lesser tie.

I have nothing but admiration for alex, given his loyalty to the club. The season Danny gay came in and knocked Alex down the pecking order he was offered the chance to leave then but stuck around to win 'his' shirt back. However, i feel like he has almost  'chucked his toys out' as such after Archie was rightly or wrongly made number 1. I get anyone would want to play regularly however i think he was used to be a lone ranger for almost all the decade he was here so didnt like it when competition arrived.  I also feel as though setch as had a hand in him deciding to leave looking through his tweets previously.

Only my opinion

Guy just wanted to play football. He was never winning his shirt back unfortunately, because how can he when he canít play to prove himself? When he canít even make bench, may as well cut losses and move on. Had Kingís Lynn actually had him on contract heíd still be there. So a schoolboy error from them there, and something Culverhouse apparently didnít know about.

The mystery to me is, why was he the "second choice" keeper?   :dontknow:

Lynn News report:

Would have been a stipulation in the loan, that Mair is number 1. Proper short sighted from Lynn this. Mair will not be the difference to if they go up/remain or even remain/go down. When he goes back to Norwich, Lynn will now have to pay a huge premium to bring in a goalkeeper who's as good as Pedro because there's not one local.

I'd suspect P'Boro Sports, Bedford and even Boston will be at head of queue to trying to get him.

Non League so are you saying Clubs should be able to continue with no testing or that the Plug should be postponed  on Football where testing Isnít finically viable ?   Maybe to re-started when we hopefully come out of this latest spike of cases.

Clubs should be able to continue with no testing, because testing isn't mandatory anywhere. This 'spike' is in till early next year, with a tight calendar already, football can't afford to postpone again for 2-3 months if season wants finishing.

I think we'll see Steps 3 down leagues put on hold by sometime in November IMO. Steps 1/2 and FL will continue.
