General Discussion / Re: THE PITCH

 Yes we would all like it in better condition. As I point out, how do you achieve it when nature is against us. Even harder to do anything mid-season.
Regards pitch condition over the five days is a hard one. There is doing nothing, as suggested, and doing as best you can. The pitch was cut up bad after Merthyr. It then rained for 3 of the five days. You cant roll it in those conditions.  I would suggest the most was done as could be done. However it would never be enough to achieve the surface we all wish for.

General Discussion / THE PITCH

The Walks pitch has always been an issue. It sits below the water table.
If you look at the water sitting in the middle of the Walks Park, I think all the clues are there to the issue.

As my reply above. Our pitch is better at this time of year than many years previous. The conditions we have by geography plus the wet weather this winter and spring have had serious impact, whoever has been looking after the pitch has done pretty well in the face of issues out of their control. I am sure all parties would of liked it better, including the groundsman.
How many games have we lost to weather? Kettering and Weymouth have lost more!!

It would be wrong for me to name the "good people".
However, as someone who has been behind the scenes (as a sponsors guest), I can tell you there are some people who's heart are truly in the club and have experience of steering the club through choppy waters, who's advice has been sought. One for sure has been offered a position to help with decisions beyond Mr Cleeves skillset.
I have spoken with a few of those "good people" they are keen to assist.
To add balance to this post. They are honest in their observation that the chairman has made errors. They do have reservations of us all, that he could be a car crash. What they do say is he does listen to reason and good solid advice. Has a tendency, as we have seen, to fly off at criticism even if warranted.
My point on this thread was to rally support for Mr Culverhouse. Not be side tracked into a debate of the chairman.

So whatever the fans must make it clear their appreciation of  Ian's efforts and dedication.

To add other comment, Ian comes from a professional background. I am sure anyone coming from the pro game to non-league would find it a culture shock. Added to that is the fact we also have a very inexperienced chairman. The chairman has dropped some clangers this term. I'm sure he will learn. I know he is trying to surround himself with good people to help him avoid pitfalls in the future.

For me its about the footy on the pitch FIRST, which we can't deny the chaiman has given us. Lets hope the frills away from the pitch will follow.

Whilst talking of the pitch..... It's not many years ago that at this time of year there wouldn't be a blade of grass on it. The pitch has always been a bog in winter and hard as rock in the summer. We have had one of the wettest periods for many years. To this end I would say the pitch is as expected, if not slightly better.

I recall Peter Morris being similar to Ian, when it came to fan contact.
Guess what? He did a bloody good job.

Think it is pretty obvious that the majority of Lynn fans would like Ian to stay. He really is a quality manager. I enjoy watching him manage the team and individuals through games. Even when the crowd would rather see other things. "In Ian we (must) trust"
In my opinion he has not really been given the credit he deserves from Lynn fans.
However it could probably be said he is not the warmest of managers we have had. He loves talking football but not bull...t. We all have our quirks. I personally would rather have a good manager than a manager who says PR rubbish to win friends and mask weakness.

Would be good to see fans really show their appreciation of Ian, this Saturday. Maybe its not to late for that strong bond of manager and fans to be formed. And IF others come hunting for this top manager, he may just think twice!!

Just a thought.

General Discussion / Good management, again

Well done again IC.
Took the game to Hereford and made tactical changes that ultimately led to the victory.

My thoughts, although possible error for second Hereford goal, the defence played well last night

I heard on the grapevine that a policeman received a bad injury last night. Maybe accidental.
Any update on what happened? How is he/she?
Was this the victim who was being stretchered off in police van?

General Discussion / Culver house top manager. Who noticed?

so the players keep the ball playing it across the back 4/5 then the to the keeper. The supporters scream get it forward mixed with a few jeers and boos
Who then noticed culverhouse jump from the dugout and applauded his team? To right! Good management.
The style Lynn are playing is what been crying out for. Not blindly lumping forward.
Good work Mr c
