General Discussion / Re: King's Lynn v York City - Sat 18 Jan 2020

Take your point, KES, about the likes of Pep and the advantage he has with his standard of players.  Without that level, as you say, you would want a structure to try to nullify superior opponents.  Where we perhaps differ is that I believe there are only about 3 positions that are more stationary in such an organised set-up - the GK and 2 CHs.  The rest of the plan would be simply about numbers - all back behind the ball, or several flood forward when the opportunity arises.  Anyway, all opinions, and good to talk...

KES80, I think you must have the wrong bloke, because Iím not a bloke, and Iím certainly not big on formations, because personally I think they are usually pretentious nonsense.  I believe they are only relevant on a subbuteo board, because whatever formation lines up, as soon as the whistle goes THE PLAYERS MOVE !  The likes of Carragher, Neville, Rednapp, etc yak profitably for hours before a game, then again after, about tactics and formations, but youíll never catch Guardiola joining in, because he knows itís about mobility and outnumbering, and nothing else.  No matter, I donít do much shouting either (!), but I do agree with you that the team,managers, and Chairman have been superb all season, and we must get behind whoever is selected and hope for a fantastic end to the season.  OK, Iíll come clean about the bloke bit !

On football in general, and KL in our case, it was great to hear Pep Guardiola, in answer to another of these complicated questions about ďformationsĒ... ďWhat is the thinking behind todayís formation (sic) ?Ē.  Following a mystified shrug of his shoulders he said, ďNothing - sometimes we have 3 , sometimes 5,  and sometimes 7.  We just try to pass the ball and score goals !  The players move !Ē  Iíve always thought that only in Subbuteo do these formations matter, because on the grass pitch the players MOVE !  Hope KLTFC keep passing the ball and scoring goals !  Donít think youíll see Pep talking balderddash with Carragher and Neville any time soon.  Talking point for a drab Sunday afternoon !!

OK ďeveryone pulling togetherĒ, and very welcome, but is Harry Limb any good ?!  Not casting nasturtiums, but did he do well at Parson Drove(?) and Boston Town ?  Also is Richards injury long term ?

Nothing against Womenís football, but are they playing on the Stadium pitch as well ?  Havenít seen it mentioned, but photos suggest that is their regular pitch.....

General Discussion / Re: Trophy game at Ebbsfleet
« on: January 10, 2020, 11:05:53 PM »
Think it should be as strong a team as possible.  If we can get past Ebbsfleet, the Trophy provides possible decent pay-days to come, and cracking games for us ďpuntersĒ !  On the team, I hope Kelly is fit, and, if so, selected, and, as usual would rather see attacking midfielders throughout.  Would also hope that Smith is about to re-appear soon, (probably not tomorrow), as I think we have a class act there waiting to blossom when he gets a good run in the team.

Well done Stephen Cleeve.  It Is indeed unfair on those paying their way !  I have sympathy for those who genuinely canít afford it, but cheating the club isnít the way.  The real problem, of course, is those who can afford it but chose to cheat anyway for their own benefit.  Those people are then hindering the progress of the club they claim to support.

General Discussion / Membership on the KLTFC site

Just had a look at the Membership benefits on the Club site - Could the inclusion of ďnon-clubĒ benefits be advantageous ?  Perhaps tickets to a game at a higher level ?  Or vouchers for a money-off or half price to a local hostelry for a meal ?  Cinema tickets ?  Concert tickets ?  Just a thought.  Canít help thinking out of the box cos I donít have a box !.......

Yes Mallard, Careyís did look unbelievable.  He was just unlucky, really.  IF we have to change the team, and we all hope we donít, I could see Carey moving forward into that slot and doing pretty well....Just a thought....

Apart from periods of injury, wHen all squad are fit, I donít believe we need any more players.  We have 4 Centre-halves when all available, plus two very capable of playing there (Jones and Barrows).  In midfield we have 8 to chose from, all well worth a place. Hawks, Limb and Stewart add to the list.  Maybe a GK, and two new forwards should we become disappointed with the effect of market forces !  Of course, the keeping them all fit is the key...

Another excellent performance.  Our front eleven are currently proving to be too good for everyone.  BUT - Any news on Adam Marriott ?  A very important question, Iím sure we would all agree.....

Bostonís website is awash with ideas and schemes, not just the advertising boards.  Things like competitions that our club has only ever promoted in a small way.  However, I agree that our continued progress must attract would be sponsors who would be impressed with the potential customers coming into the ground.  Now we need the numbers to rapidly increase.  Good luck to MH, and continued thanks to SC,IC, and the team for this superb season.....

Yes - great result.  Good result at Brackley as well, from our point of view.  Our home crowd really ought to start to snowball from now.......Potentially a very exciting last third of the season...  Anyone know why Kelly off so early ?  No mention on the commentary that I could see ( an otherwise good coverage).

Happy New Year to all those interested in KLTFC, including those still only thinking about coming to see this excellent team in action....  Special thanks to Steven Cleeve, IC and Mr Bastock, (it hasnít gone un-noticed how you ďpingĒ a new ball into play when one is heading down Tennyson Avenue after a Hawk-launch !  Hard and low please Hawk, in 2020 !  Not forgetting our fine team , and particularly itís terrific on the floor pass and move football !  As well as NY greetings, a special thank you to Mr Chairman for his superb sponsorship of our club, ambition for its progress, and....  his humorous programme notes.  Steven - Donít let the buggers get you down.....  Off now for a third Crafty Hen - the last one before the toast !!!

For older hipsters, itís right next door to the famous Gliderdrome Dancehall and concert venue.  A few memories for Lynn AND Boston revellers of yesteryear !
