Football wise. Quite pleased what I saw today, the lesser team in spells but promising none the less against a team that will no doubt be challenging for the title.

Question tho.. apart from the food available at the away end.. was there anywhere for food for the home fans?

I may moan about this a lot but Steven cleeve really does not cater or care about the home fan?! £21 a ticket.. yes to support full time football and yes the football at times today was of a good quality but the match day experience. We queued from 2.30 and didnít see a single match day programme being sold or anywhere to get hot food?

I really hope the sponsored shirts do arrive, will be the final nail if not.

Relieved but also sad that others have suffered the same, it took me 5-6 emails and chasers to get my original reply of I wonít recieve it til friendlys are complete.

May be worth a few of us chasing too see what reply we get.

It would seem to me that the ethos of the club is to extract maximum cash from the fans with the minimum of effort and return for the fans? :dontknow: :bankrupt:

This is how it feels more often than not.

I wholeheartedly appreciate what SC has done for the on-field side of the club, IC is doing an incredible job and we have seen some fantastic players BUT other elements do sour the experience.. Being a Lynn fan has taught me to appreciate the ride as I am sure there are some bumps in the road to come but often the shortcomings around matchday experience can't help but leave a negative taste.

Myself amongst others chased to give the club last year in terms of sponsorship, often sending 2/3 emails with no response.

I hear many werent told why they hadn't recieved their sponsored players shirts yet alongside not even being contacted again to see if they wanted to sponsor programmes etc today as they have in their past.

Indeed - as above Iíve not been contacted about player sponsorship considering Iíve sponsored a player for the last 2 years. Also a bit disappointed not to receive my player sponsored shirt at the end of the season!! Hereís hoping for a decent season on the pitchÖ.

Still yet to hear when I am likely to receive my shirt... I had to chase 5 times to find out I wasn't getting it when I expected also.

Last year it was £500 with a 3 course meal. Signed match ball too.

The three course meal isnít amazing but food all the same. Half time you get free drinks but again last year we had an occasion where we werenít served. I love the club but as itís been touched on the match day experience has stayed many levels below what we play at. Simple things like locations to get food/drink havenít exactly excelled, pre season friendlys the food was one side of the ground and that was it.

I feel half the time these are the small fixes that are overlooked.

Our hall of fame has three players.. why not engage the fans to vote on new members? I understand asking more money to push the club forward but the fans also need something out of this

The commercial manager role baffles me.. MH is a very decent guy but certainly not one with very much commercial accumen.

SC does seem to make large steps forward but we still carry on with such simple mistakes which makes Lynn continually look tin pot.

As for justifying the current ticket prices, as much as we love to see Lynn at a higher standard, full time and with a fantastic manager, the match day experience doesn't exactly improve.

I have tried again... I clicked the envelope icon originally but I have tried a different tact.

Thanks both.

Absolutely agree, 2-3 more and we would compete for sure.

As for Jarvis and not being who he was, I think people underestimate how good he is for Lynn, his ability to watch the game and play simple balls is fantastic, a few times this season his presence has calmed us down when it has been needed.

His vision, ball playing ability and leadership next to a midfield with a fit Clunan for example would still very much do a job. I hope they both sign.

Lets hope soon we have a decision on what will happen next season then we can count down the days til we are allowed to go back to the ground and have a beer/greasy burger!

Quick question and forgive me if I am being somewhat stupid BUT...

Why would Bury be allowed to come back in at such a high level? Where Lynn, Rushden etc given the same chance when reforming?

Seems a punishment to so many other clubs if they allowed to jump the queue so to speak...

Some interesting points made. As a kid I have always supported Lynn and Norwich (I know there is many who say you can't support both) BUT over the last few years if it was a chance to watch Lynn or Norwich, Lynn would always be my first choice.

It just feels more real if that makes sense, the money being spent at professional level is unsustainable and frightening..

The fact Norwich are furloughing staff is shocking in my opinion!

I hope to see non-league return when it is safe and that more people will back what is a fantastic club which has given me many enjoyable memories! (I also hope the beers a little better ;) )

It would be nice to see some sort of salary cap introduced in reflection of what is happening but I think we know it is unlikely. Make football about the fans not about money!

How are you progressing with this?

Any step by step tips for someone who is bored and tempted to do the same? :)
