General Discussion / Re: Alex Street
« on: November 06, 2020, 05:39:04 PM »
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:

https://www.lynnnews.co.uk/sport/goalkeeper-alex-street-leaves-kings-lynn-town-9128365/

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.

General Discussion / Re: Home vs Wealdstone (27th Oct)
« on: October 28, 2020, 12:25:32 PM »
To not even pick up a point against Weymouth/Wealdstone is very poor, since they're the new teams also at this level. Defensively been awful all season. Averaging nearly 3 goals a game will see club get relegated with ease, because you simply not going to win enough games leaking that much.

Think it's time (especially this season with no fans, and the need to get points early doors in case of PPG), to go defensive, drop deeper, get back to basics and use pace and be more a counter attacking side. Goes against what previous seasons have been, but something needs to change to tighten things up. There'll always be goals in the side at the other end with the quality/options there are, but got to start limiting conceding to no more than 1 to reap benefits of scoring.

Surely all Clubs in the 5th tier of English Football have to tested before each game.   It makes no sense if some clubs are doing the right things and some arenít. 

Iím sure we are professional enough to have regular testing at the Club.

Football league clubs donít have to do testing, why Spurs paid for Orient to be tested before they played other month. Thereíll be quite a few clubs like S****horpe today where cases will rip through the club once one gets tested after showing symptoms.

Amazed Notts County doing testing. Completely pointless when other teams wonít be.

Being a good example is hardly pointless.

The question is, should the other non league Clubs follow their lead, especially now they have the Grant money and are supposedly the centre of local communities.

:dontknow:

Clubs can't afford to follow I feel. Steps 1/2 full under same bracket as Championship/L1/L2, so if testing was made a mandatory to play, clubs would be pushed to financial ruin even more.

Heathrow announced rapid testing at £80 a pop (some other places it's north of £100). For a club days before each game, probably looking at what 25 tests required (at least in Steps 1/2 non league) so would be looking at say £100 a test as a figure, £2.5k outlay. Some weeks £5k outlay if 2 games. Looking at around £15k - £20k a month.

On top of wages, running costs, the grant wouldn't cover things. Should the money be increased, it should be with it going towards testing.

Yes, I was then going to post that.

He's at Braintree.

In my opinion, Premier League (or likely end up being Government), need to put X amount towards non league game and mothball it. The money will go towards covering all (or vast majority of playing wages i.e. 80% if they're legally contracted), and grants towards upkeep of stadiums whilst clubs are mothballed. That way, clubs owners are not pocketing any money and it's ALL towards keeping club alive till August 2021, when season can start with fans hopefully.

Players that are not legally contracted to club can be released (just like loads of other businesses that will unfortunately have to let staff go). There's no way non league can play and survive a whole season without fans. On the fans, are they still allowed step 3 and under?

I'd very cautious about allowing fans in from Step 1 down, and giving clubs money to cover 'losses' from reduced fans. Because we all know how clubs think. That money will just go towards a signing or two, to push for promotion.

Have to look at EFL too. Money comes down, but clubs operate way beyond their means so the argument will be why should Premier League finance them. Give them more money, clubs will treat it as an opportunity to spend more. TV income goes up, wages and transfer fees go up.

King's Lynn were operating at a loss previous seasons, even when in Step 3.

There's players paid now in Steps 1-2 that would have got that money in football league in the 2000s. Wages is high all over the game.

Apparently could be looking at several months of no fans.

Clubs that have spent loads this summer outside Premier League will be screwed, especially in Non-League. Because they'll need to refund season tickets too, unless fans make it a donation.

Merthyr Town asked to be mothballed for this season, and I think a lot more will be trying to do same otherwise they'll be folding.

The answer is simple stop paying your TV license.... it's quite easy.......get yourself a Smart Tv if you haven't already got one and subscribe to a sports channel to get live action and you're done..........only thing you can't view is BBC iPlayer

Can't watch live TV without a BBC licence, even sport.

There's already been multiple clubs that had to forfeit games in the FA Cup because they've had postive cases and had to isolate.

« on: August 26, 2020, 11:24:04 AM »
Think it's no secret that the ambitions giving who's come in that the aim will be to be pushing play offs, rather than stay up. Just staying up, the club could have went with what they had last season, but by adding some proven players at this level they're clearly not going for that.

Games will be thick and fast, twice a week against far better opposition so rotation will be needed, and there can't be too much of a drop off if they're going to push for play offs.

Loza and Power pace on the flanks, playing off someone like Gash (or alongside a more attacking Marriott) is a good option next season if Culverhouse wants to go 4-3-3 next season in any games. Hawkins would be the option on the right at the moment, and he's more a last roll of the dice sub rather then wanting to start him at this level.

Shame there'll likely be a reduced capacity across grounds next season, because if Boston go up and Lynn are doing resonably ok next season come the derby at home (likely Xmas time), I think we'd be looking at a 5k+ attendance.
