Yes… Good luck to Sonny Carey.  I recall being surprised to read, months ago on the forum, that”Carey should go to a lower league to learn the game, and get “some minutes”.  The Dilly query at the time was “ Who to pick to play alongside Carey and Kelly ?!!  Point is, I think the club failed to capitalise on Kelly’s obvious skill level, and this is a Dilly call to get him back, as we are now building a nippier passing team that he would thrive in….

Not sure we missed King ?  King and Rowley together would lift our level, imho.  Rowley did look decent vs Southend, and I can see him thriving if supplied with King’s vision and ability.  We are on the verge of having a team that will trouble good sides in this league.

My last piste was incomprehensible due to typos that I didn’t check.  So, just to say, the highlights surprised me.  I agree with KES andd others that we looked like a NL side.  We were a lot more cohesive and “nippy”, ( dare I say).  The GK looked good, though the whole game might have shown that he didn’t come for crosses.  Morals and Rowley looked the nipsters we’ve lacked, and that will be even better if we include Gyasi with them.  A friend who went told me it was poor, but he only likes 50s FA Cup type football, the ball lumped up to big ugly strikers with no teeth.  We can be ok, if we keep picking mobile, not stodgy teams.  The fans will return, if and when we win a couple….

Just watched the highlights, and was surprised.  IC has brought in some decent players.  The GK did very well, and Maria’s Andy Rowley looked very useful additions.  Dillification may have been a little pessimistic, S the team actually looked nippy and mobile.  Big support from locals justified for future games,….

Mallard has shown that he doesn’t get the essence of nipsterism, or nipsters.  And others, imho, are too stuck on “beef” in positions where we need “players” !  A nipster can be any size, not merely “slight”, although good nipsters tend to be smaller ( or what the macho analysts call “ a low centre of gravity” , because saying “small” messes up their “Big and Strong” fixation.  The essence is the ability to trick their way past an opponent, and nip away over a short distance.  “Beef” or “ Strength” is often a cliche, usually spouted by those who buy the macho nonsense spoken by pundits, to make out there is something extra in the “English game”.  Players are often said to have “used their strength” , when a playback shows there was no contact whatsoever !  Salah, Mane, even Grealish are all nipsters.  Players nearly always murder beefcake !!  Glad to be of service !!

Don’t get the vitriol against SC.  He’s the major part of why we’re now at this level !  Keep the faith.  But I do think we badly need creative midfielders and genuine goal scorers.  Still believe, and will accept the flack for it, that in a team that can get men up in numbers, therefore creating openings, Marriott or Southwell would retrieve their eye for goal….. ??!!

No streaming ?…..   During Covid ?…..  There are people with conditions who may not wish to risk even the reduced possibility of bumping into someone carrying the virus without knowing it, and not wearing a mask.  And (understandable) Covid Cowards (aka “sensible people) won’t be the only ones to miss out, as there will be other people, perhaps elderly, or infirm, as well.  And there may be far more people this season to add to the club’s finances by buying a seat in the grandstand of their living rooms.  COYL…..

Good luck to the team, and consequently the fans.  Can’t have an opinion on your nipster query, TonyM, because the nipsters in the club haven’t been assessed at Dilly headquarters, as I haven’t seen any of the newbies yet.  Dillification of the selection always hopes to see a team with players capable of keeping the opponents on the back foot for as much of the time as possible, because I believe that, in the tide and flow of the playing waves, it is better to have attackers defending, when necessary, than defenders attacking.  Prediction, on guesswork, until analysis can be made at headquarters - KLTFC 1 Sarfend 2….  but, like all on here, I’d love that score to be reversed, and hopefully increased !

For the want of something to do, I just read the Archives.  In the fifties the council put in a banked terrace ( a real one), at the Hospital end.  It held 6,000 people !It’s a sad thought to me that we are now seemingly unable to accommodate a mere 4,000 throughout the whole ground !at least on an organised basis).  The bigger the club has become on the pitch, the smaller we have become in infrastructure, comfort, and safety, all of which will be put to the test on Saturday, and probably the majority of the matches this season.  We badly need an empowered organiser/ manager. Who thinks hard about what’s needed.  Apparently the board announcing the next game, in Tennyson Avenue, is EMPTY, for one of the biggest games in the club’s history.  Why are we so amateurish - it won’t work at this level.

Blue and Gold - I agree entirely - I was being sarcastic.  The thing you hear about it “having been a long slog, and I’ve done my bit, I’m fed up with it now, and now it’s time we got back to normal”, etc, etc.. is the most idiotic viewpoint of all !  The virus decides when to open the doors, not humans who think that saying it’s all back to normal is the same thing as it IS back to normal.  And that stupid sentiment is only trumped by the same twonks saying “It’s like Flu”….  Ye Godz, be careful out there - keep your distance, even at a football match !!!

Perhaps Covid could be another reason for slow sales - there are still some people who don’t understand the idea that it’s over now, because we’ve had enough of it, and now want to get back to normal.  Normal for Norfolk, it may be, but I think it’s normal for England too, on that score.

Lots of clubs do that - but they’re usually near the bottom of the league !

HappyMondays spot on, there, as adverts everywhere are very important.  For some reason, the club have never organised anything like that.  So obvious, and will hopefully be a big spread in the Lynn news…
