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.

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?

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.

And that bar manager hasn't got St Neots promoted, yet.

Gris, why do you post on here? Whenever I browse it's always negativity from you, picking at the smallest things, almost schadenfreude esque.

Other pubs would have also been building up their customer base before and throughout the tournament, whereas Lynn would be starting from fresh and trying to draw in new punters. One of those things that just can't be done on a one off, it's something the club need to consistently do throughout the season and build up a base so the bigger events like this World Cup has seen can be utilised.

Don't forget the VERY dry weather will not help the pitch, only so much you can do at a lower level when weather is like this so bobbles are always going to look a lot worse. Once weather balances out, you'll see the pitch improve. Most important part is later Autumn/winter when it usually rips up.

Surely it's something they have to do on Saturday? 3pm Kick Off, get people in there midday, drinks for at least 5 hours, with food ongoing. Surely would be an easy quick profit turnover on a non matchday, especially if they do a load of drink deals too.

Culverhouse going to Grantham says one thing to me...... There is a lot of quality managers who must be out of work.  I think I read Grantham had 20 applicants for the post which was whittled down to 6 of which IC was the man who came out on top.

It will be interesting to track how Grantham progress next season.

If IC can work the same magic at Grantham as he did at Lynn nobody will complain, but he has got to motivate a tam playing in front of a crowd that averages 260 instead of a crowd that averages 780? :dontknow:

Money will motivate them.

Going to take something special to win that league, even with higher spending. South Shields I'd be confident of being top 3, before some of the more bigger northern sides that are located in very good catchment areas for higher caliber players. Grantham will need to utilise the Nottingham area fully.

After losing two strikers, and the need to really sign a goalscorer, I do wonder if Clark will use his connections with P'Boro and tempt the club (and player himself) to get Stevens on loan. Scored a good amount at Kettering, and if Evans doesn't feel he's good enough for a promotion push, then he could be out on loan again. Gash and Stevens reuniting as a strike partnership (unsure if they actually played together much at Barnet) could be what delivers the title.
