General Discussion / Re: Back and Fryatt appointed.
« on: September 27, 2018, 04:45:30 PM »
Could be a case of the manager that Lynn want/would be interested in just isn't available at the moment because they're in a start/middle of a project and want to see how it goes for a bit longer. If Backie and Fryatt are happy to stay on, and step aside when said manager becomes available further down the line (whether that's few weeks or months) regardless how well they've done, it could be good for everyone.

Monthly rolling contract seems to fit that model.

The 'contacts' is loose term I feel for a manager at this level. If the team is playing good football, doing well, players will naturally come to light for the club and money will talk. Backie/Fryatt will probably be told about a player at X club, by a close source/current or ex player and they can make the approach after looking into them. Players by a vast majority won't be swayed because of who is manager, but simply by how much they will get and chances of success.

Realistically their isn't going to be many managers available right now because the ones that are you would think were available when Clark was appointed, so not like there'd be fresh faces at present, and the previous applicants must not have wowed Cleeve otherwise he would have quickly appointed one of them if they were a close 2nd to Clark.

Didn't do very well in his last job at Boston Town.

Very little finance.  :dontknow:

If he was that good he wouldn't need it.

Guess it shows he can only manage with a big budget.

Same for 99% of managers in non league. You'll struggle to locate a manager that has won/achieved promotion in non league without having one of the highest budgets in the league, just the way it is.

Arguably when looking for a manager for a club that has one of the highest budgets in the league, you want a manager that has a proven track record of delivering expectations that come with it.

Think how long it has taken to appoint a manager, I have a feeling Cleeve will go for the minimal investment option after being stung by Clark and either keep on the current duo or appoint a manager that's very local. Probably feels title is over (already) and with the squad that's here, it should get to the play offs still with a manager that just allows freedom and confidence. At the end of season approach the crossroads there and then.

You have to wonder if heís been in touch with Mr Beadle regardless of travel circumstances.

You Cannot Be Serious? Hereford fans were baying for blood for his tactics even though he got promotion.

3 back to to back promotions and you clearly havenít seen their response on Twitter extremely unhappy with the dismissal

More unhappy that he wasn't giving time, but they're not gutted he has gone because of the football played over the seasons. Also need to keep in mind that Hereford playing budget has been far greater than othersides on their rise up the leagues, and fans wanted/expected better football to be shown as a result of it, even if targets were achieved of promotion.

Siddons is perfect for the Northern League. Culverhouse has been making some good signings again over there and seems to be having the team playing well despite a summer of upheaval. Be another good achievement if he keeps this form up and guides them into the play offs, which is a much tougher league then the one Lynn are in this season.

General Discussion / Re: @officialKLtown sack manager Simon Clark.
« on: September 09, 2018, 07:51:31 PM »
Not surprised at all. Been a car crash of an appointment, but been sacked early enough to still rescue the season. Just a question now of who will replace him? Someone who's been around such as Greene? Or take a gamble and entice Lappin back to take it over full time?

Feel Histon will win. 4 wins out of 4 in league, progress in cups, breathing confidence. They'll be on the front foot and if Lynn go behind I can see it being a long afternoon.

Its sad that a lot of you on this site thinks it would solve all the problems of getting rid of the manager. What would we gain? Nothing, a new man would want different players change systems etc, this all takes time, I think we can ride out this storm, lets beat Histon on Saturday and it may kick start our season. Also I don't know who was doing the nasty comments on the match feed on line Saturday, but it was certainly nothing to be proud of.  Its only just September for Christ sake!

Only September yet 14! points behind Kettering already. Remit was promotion, and I think the title is over already so it's luck of the play offs once again, and they're even harder to negotiate this season.

All for giving managers time, but sometimes you can see and tell early on when one is struggling and out of their depth. Why persist if that's the case in the hope he wins 2 on the bounce before going 4/5 without a win before pulling trigger? Still don't understand the reasoning or the logic behind such a bloated group of assistants. Do feel if Clark is relieved, instead of getting a new manager in it could just be a case of them taking over because it would be cheaper.

Might be wide of the mark, but heard some talk that there's a 3 month break clause in Clark contract? I do think it's only a matter of when, not if till he's relieved of his duties. Who's likely replacement?

General Discussion / Re: King's Lynn Town FC v St Neots on Saturday
« on: August 26, 2018, 06:04:55 PM »
Culverhouse had an assistant last year pretty much in Lappin, just he offered a lot on the pitch too unlike the current Lynn 2.

Think Lynn will get play offs because quality will get there, but they're a complete lottery (which may work for Lynn this time) and they shouldn't end in there with the players/budget they have. Should be push Kettering all the way. Kettering no better then last season, and Lynn on paper no worse, yet there's 8 points seperating the clubs after 4 games.

Another poor showing in front of goal, and yet another game where Harry hardly gets a look in.

Only need to see Kettering already 4 points clear after 4 games to show how low quality the league will be this season. Really is a badly missed opportunity if Lynn allow them to break away and win it easily with a low points tally of something like 82.
