Very sadly this season is going EXACTLY like I predicted it would, when so many, both at the club and amongst the fans, were hoping for and expecting a mid table finish, at the worst! Sound like a stuck record but like I said weeks ago now, we aint going to win enough matches to stay up with the very poor, freebie, non league journeymen we have as our uhum, "strike force"!!

As others have said, its NOW time to **** or get off the pot for SC and arguably IC too. The club has got to spend some money on a striker, even if that means PAYING a league club the full wages for just a loan of a good striker (who isnt quite good enough for them right now but whom they don't want to leave).

I know that's far easier said than done BUT unless it happens, then Lynn WILL get relegated and where will that leave those contracted "full time players" next season or indeed the future of the club?!

Think this is a massive game.    Progressing to the next round is vital for the Club’s finances.    To think a win Saturday could set up a home game with a Sunderland, Ipswich etc.  Is massive.

A big day for both SC and IC

Best option for the club would be an AWAY game with the likes of Sunderland 'cos with gate receipts shared, the income would be much more than a match at the Walks!

Have to disagree with you on that.   Say Kings Lynn drew Sunderland at The Walks.  100% guarantee of a live Game coverage.  Game at the SOL.  Not a chance of TV being interested in that.   Plus the sponsorship deals would be massive. Etc.   Not sure how many Mackems would turn out to watch Kings Lynn.

To be fair, your point about the Tv coverage is a fair one. I reckon though there'd still be at least 15,000-20,000 at Sunderland even for little old Lynn!!

Brave effort, but once again no cigar.
Wasn't there so not easy to comment on performance but from the reports, seems best efforts were from Clunan and Barrows.....a too familiar story.......just a little toothless upfront.

Have to say that we probably start as second favourites next Saturday to Peterborough Sports, just because their confidence is high and they are scoring for fun.

Seems like a striker in on loan may be the only option, if a cup run isn't forthcoming.

The thing is though if the club couldn't bring in a striker worth anything in the Summer what chance do they have of getting a good one in on loan, part way through the season?!
As I've said before, you dont get quality strikers at this level unless you splash some dosh or you are very, very lucky and uncover a hidden gem, and the lack of goals is going to cost Lynn BIG TIME this season.
You get stuff all for "brave efforts" I'm afraid and this is becoming a regular theme already.

If the attendance does not increase as the level of the game climbs, then it is a sure indicator that the club has gone beyond the level it should be. Histon , Rushdon etc etc ...The public either do not like the price or there just is not the interest, until a play off final or cup run is on offer. Two levels to high....

I fear you are spot on. At this level Lynn are inevitably going to struggle ON the pitch to keep their heads above water, full time or not, and the facts are that at these admission prices, unless the team is winning, a lot of people who have come for years on and off, are not going to turn up.
I can’t see the current situation being sustainable for long but I just hope we don’t fall down as far as the two clubs you mentioned did, when sadly, things go “bang”!

Sadly this season is going exactly as I predicted and feared! To think that some in here and at the club were "expecting" a mid table finish at worse!, is mind boggling! Scoring goals this season, just like last season, is proving to be the Achilles heel but you don't get efficient and clinical strikers at this level without having to splash some reasonable dosh and even then, still get lucky.
Crowds (which already are nowhere near enough to keep the club going this season) will continue to plummet and sadly I think there is a chance the club may not even survive until the end of the season and if it does, its going to be in a horrendous financial state :(
Sad times and real worries.

I thought the Yeovil game was live last year or am I misunderstanding
something. The gate will interesting first game with not as many suppoters#
from away team my guess is 700-900 I hope I'm proved wrong.

I HOPE that you are being on the pessimistic side with that "guestimate" otherwise SC is going to go bonkers with a crowd that small for just the second home game of the season against the league leaders!

I don't think he'll be far out with the higher figure.

900 ish.

I think it will just creep over the 1000 figure, but still expect some negative reaction from Mr Cleave as to the “lack of support” shown!

Good result today and important to get the first points on the board. Yes, it WAS against 10 men for a large part of the match but you can only beat what's put in front of you and its the result that matters.

They will be removed from the ground and receive no refund.

Good luck with that! Who's going to remove them? The Stewards? Is so, someone needs to get real.

Why should  Volunteer Stewards put themselves in harm's way to do that?

Probably more importantly, why should a professional full time football club expect them to do so.

As we have seen before, a clubs shortcomings resulting in others being expected to pick up pieces.

If this is the best they can do I wouldn't be surprised if they get another official visit. If that happens, I suppose it could be a case of further restrictions on numbers or even worse.

No good saying it will be sorted soon. It needed sorting before the season started (we were told all games were going to be segregated). As it hasn't been, it needs sorting for the next home game after the Chesterfield visit.

I also can't see the people buying tickets on the day being questioned too rigourously regarding the team they support. Not if it means them being refused entry will cost the Club £21 a time!

Will they be asked before or after they have purchased a ticket?

I can see it now B&G, people will be being asked to quote a line from Shakespeare (to decipher their accent) and bring with them a utility bill (to prove their address!).

Looks like he could be a useful addition based on some of the comments from the Ipswich fans.
