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.

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?

If I was the chairman and had thousands of pound to Chuck away I would be looking to find land to build a new stadium with capacity for 2 0r 3 pitches to accommodate all teams .You will be chucking away good money to develop the Walks it would only ever be an asset for the Council.

Where would be an ideal move? Central locations in towns for stadiums are so key for non league clubs to maintain resonable attendances. As soon you start moving outside, they can dip and sometimes not recover unless hugely successful, which even then the attendances wouldn't be as high as they may have been before.

On another note, why do people want old managers back? Personally prefer someone new who's not been involved with the club before.

He hasn't been involved with this club though...

Think King's Lynn need to go for a guy that's a very good coach, with local contacts. Culverhouse has implemented a style that will be attractive to players, and if the next coach can continue and deliver great coaching sessions, it will appeal to the players that are hungry (young/just released that may still have ambitions of making either league football or top of non league football) and they will want to join.

I think they could easily go for a guy that's technically a great man manager and knows plenty of contacts, but if it tends to be more journeyman arriving I think it would have a negative impact and wouldn't be great long term if club were to be promoted. The current style is better long term I feel.

Occassion got to Lynn today for me. Players like Norman/King who have been superb this season wilted when it mattered. Gash/Fryatt the only two players who were by large solid and did their job, all the rest were below par. Pitch was terrible to get ball down and play, just bobbly as hell as it showed in first 20 minutes and I reckon that halted Lynn playing how they wanted to, tried to play more direct which overall Slough won the battle of route one. Pretty sure though that the defender saved Mettam bicycle kick.

Just two wins from winning the league (could win it Tuesday night if Yaxley fail to win). Double header against Daventry. Great turn around considering Wisbech lost 4 of their first 6 league games I think.

Anyone not else think a draw could actually turn out the best result (permitting Slough win and win their play off Semi Final)? Home advantage obviously would be huge, but playing on Sloughs pitch could help Lynn a lot more then if it were at home from a footballing point of view.

Not a great surprise Ian will be off, came close to leaving earlier in year anyway because of behind the scenes stuff. Heard that one incident he was annoyed at came when certain training facilities had not been paid which he felt was very unprofessional because players were travelling a far to come training and there was the possibility of being turned away because of unpaid fees. I'm sure there would have been many more small incidents like this over the course of the season which showed the club were not acting professionally and he would need to move on.

Be great for club to get promotion, but can't help but feel that could end up being bad in the long run if money isn't backed. Going to need to pay more at a higher level, and unless manager can attract those players on normal wages it could be a long season or a season where bigger losses are incurred. A season in the new central league with the manager building a squad could be better long term, but all depends on who the manager is.

How long was IC on contract for and if itís secure?

Anyone know this? Was it just a one year deal? Or two year deal?

Worse case and he were to leave, if would be much better if he were on a two year deal because the compensation received from a whole years contract could be put into the playing budget next season which would help a lot, albeit at a loss of a very good manager at this level.

King's Lynn were very good last night. Started off brightly and created some good chances (not sure how the one that hit the crossbar didn't go in). Kettering then tried their best to make it a physical game and drag Lynn down with them, which Lynn did in last 15 minutes of 1st half which was poor to see because Kettering then started to take control. 2nd half, Lynn just didn't start at all and thankfully the penalty woke them up and made them angry to start playing again. Was such a stupid foul to give away by Ward, but what was impressive was how he reacted. After that he bossed the strikers and didn't make one more mistake which is great to see from a mental point of view with bigger games to come. Kettering couldn't deal with back post crosses in 2nd half, so will be interesting to see if Culverhouse will pinpoint more of those should they meet again in play offs. Finally, still in awe of that corner delivery from Simon Lappin for winner. So much pace and swing, literally can't defend those at this level.

I have to say I thought there was much more at the game last night then the one at Hereford. When I was looking around during the first half I was thinking based on the Hereford game there was 1400 there, so was surprised to see it less.

In fairness to the Hereford away game too, spoke to a Hereford fan few weeks ago and they said 3-0 flattered them and Banbury were one of if not the best side they had seen come there this season.

Title was always going to be out of reach, just what Lynn have done in recent weeks is position themselves greatly to finish 2nd and home advantage all way in play offs which recent weeks has shown to be an advantage (albeit the pitch not being great). Hopefully though Hereford drop some points so the small possibility of winning is still there, meaning Lynn keep pushing hard. Don't want them to drop off slightly thinking title is over because that could then result slipping away from 2nd and entering the play offs in mixed form which is always hard to suddenly pick back up again.

Be good for the area if both Wisbech and Lynn went up, with both being competitive again next season. Both clubs that can have big attendances for their level if people start coming back.
