Who ever is appointed i wish them nothing but success in the Herculean task that they face....If they succeed in rescuing our season and staving off relegation, that will entitle them to be added to the list of Linnet Legends, in my opinion.

I would put myself in the older age group and I have always supported  the team not individuals.How many local Norwich lads play in Norwich Team but it doesn't stop 27000 supporters attending each game.

Fair point but each to his own. Some will follow success irrespective of who provides it?

Heacham have done fantastic in recent years but they are really not a village team anymore. The players/management are not from the village and the local players were pushed out of the club for their success to happen.

My father has lived in Heacham for years and he won’t down to watch them anymore as he doesn’t recognise anyone. The supporters are all from Lynn and the spirit of village football is no longer there.

Maybe it's the same for the Towns football club.  :dontknow:

Lost its identity, players not known to any of the regular supporters. You may have hit the nail on the head when it comes to the missing supporters.  :dontknow:

I can't think of any other reason.

A valid point in my opinion. Many, particularly amongst older supporters, felt more of an attachment to the club when there were a few 'local boys' in or around the first team.  To name but two: I enjoyed watching and following the careers of the Defty brothers and more recently i was really hoping that Joe Taylor would be given the chance to establish himself in the senior squad.

Exciting times for a club that appears to be getting things right.

There seems to be a great collective team spirit...both on and off the pitch.

IF IC had good contacts and WAS allowed to sign who he wanted...It does not say a great deal for the quality of those contacts and his judgement as to what was going to be required at this level?

IF and WAS????????

I think we should go for Marcelo Bielsa's interpretor. Just think of the knowledge he's picked up over the years.  :sinking:

Or the late great Bobby Robson's interpretor from his time at Barcelona!

Perhaps SC will fancy playing as well as managing. We desperately need someone up front who can score.

We really are stuck firmly between a rock and a hard place.....If IC were to leave it will be incredibly difficult if not impossible to recruit a quality replacement.

Given the current parlous state of the club with rumour and uncertainty rife, we are hardly an attractive career advancement proposition?

Rod, if Setch is in the frame then we may well be playing Heacham earlier than even Gordon could hope for (edit Mall, we obviously have different memories of the Setch era and whatever he is doing at Bedford that is the same level as Dereham, who are also 2nd in their division so would Gusterson also be an option on that criteria?)

Aside from the attack on IC, the article completely fails to mention the Crouch report, appreciate he might not agree with all of it's 47 recommendations but surely that would have been a better topic prior to our biggest game of the season?

Tony, nothing more than a slightly tongue in cheek observation?!
