I wish him well. One thing going for him is that he is used to working with colourful characters!

I was under the impression he was very disappointed not to have been given a run in the first team last season and that was the reason he was keen to leave.

IC was very protective of youngsters and blooded them slowly...maybe SC feels he doesn't want the situation repeated ?

If that was the case, he had every reason to feel disappointed?

If Mr Cleeve were to seek an investment partner or even decide to sell the club....??

A local boy but he appears to have no interest in football!

Just imagine the team walking out to 'We are the Champions!!'

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!
