The gift that just keeps giving..


“Anyway listening in on a conversation of one of their Club officials it seems that the current owner is about to be joined by a heavyweight investor with an aim to join the Football League”

P.s. sorry for the spam.

They’re obsessed.

“The Rise of King's Lynn
« on: Today at 09:06:41 PM »
How have they managed to rise above us and seemingly all the other established NLN clubs?

Have they come into money? Have they just got a great manager who knows how to get the best out of average (cheap) players? Doing some research on their Chairman, he seems to have had a colourful and controversial past. Is he behind the success?

On another point, I've heard rumours that top scorer Adam Marriott is potentially going to Colchester”

From Boston Forum:

“Congratulations to Lynn. It gives us something to look forward to when their wheels come off, they lose their backers and go bust. Been there, got the T shirt. Enjoy it while you can, we enjoyed our moment”

I agree totally with everyone’s opinion, as they all valid points.

I can certainly agree that Culverhouse will he pushing the players behind the scenes as he knows we’ve got a special group of players here. It’d be a shame not to keep them together, and push for promotion.

Up the Lynn!

But we’re massively over achieving, again from what cully said taking it 10 games at a time and we’re living in dream world at the moment. We’d be silly to turn down big money for the lad.
I can see it from peoples point of view that think we need to keep hold of him as he’s an integral part to the team, and people saying that’ll show what Cleeve is made of, with a message of intent with holding on to Marriott. Which is really hope we do but we have to think about the club as a whole. Cleeve has already said its going to be a massive task if we did somehow go up next year with letting wages demands and league rules. But at this stage we shouldn’t be thinking about promotion like Culverhouse has said. It’s the long term vision, and the money from Marriott may give us the ability to get a couple of lads in, granted they’ll be no Marriott but it’s about the financial stability of the club.
Do we want to go back to the old ways before we re-formed and pay players silly amounts that we couldn’t afford and let us go under the pan once again. No we don’t.

Sustainability.

On a slightly different note (although the subject was mentioned a few weeks ago) apparently the winner of yesterday's 50/50, received £150.

Are we really only selling £300 worth of tickets when there's in excess of 2,000 people there?  :dontknow:

One to work on?


Just an idea, might not be worth while.
But could the guy selling the programs also he pushing the 50/50 tickets, not to add more jobs to individuals. Potentially also someone selling them as you went into the ground before turnstyle while people still have money out?

Another funny from the Boston forum


“I hope it p****s it down
« on: Today at 10:26:43 AM »
With half the team injured, and such a tough game yesterday.  Would it be to our advantage if tomorrows match was called off?  Kettering did not have a match yesterday  and we played 74 minutes with 10 men in testing conditions.  Get the sprinklers on ;D ;D ;D”

Clutching a straws to gain an advantage 🤦🏼‍♂️

I believe I heard over tannoy yesterday about the bucket going round the new Frost/pitch protection covers. I may have heard wrong but said they need around £4-5k to be able make this happen.

I know you can get automatic rollers from either goal to goal, or side to side of pitch, and this doesn’t need much manual work to operate. So reckon this should/could be the better option, it may cost slightly more. But for the Steve (groundsman) it’d save him needing more and more volunteers to help get them on and off.

But personally didn’t see the collection bucket come near me yesterday. Boston at home games do a collection jar for all loose change that goes around every game, and I believe over last 3 seasons it’s raised £3,500 already 🤷🏻‍♂️

Another good day really, tough conditions made it hard for both teams to play. But hey, the boys managed to pull through strong and we get yet another 3 points on the board.

Next two home games, Spennymoor and York. 1k+ attendances surely, that’s the least the players deserve. York are likely to bring a couple of hundred I should imagine!

From Boston Forum;

“Agree, absolute tin pottery of the highest order, as for game, sending off changed it, 11 v 11 and we would have run out comfortable winners, must admit for a team top of table they were pretty poor, will wager a bet come end of season we will be above them in the league, long way to go yet“

Idiots. Granted we weren’t at our best, but still controlled the game, just final pass let us down today, and reasonably slow build up play. But fed up of the oldies that always stand near me, they’re so negative it’s unreal. Literally before the goal, bloke behind goes “don’t give it too sonny, he f**k it up” when Sonny got the ball, “here we go again”. Let’s encourage these great bunch of lads!

Absolutely gutted I can’t make it Boxing Day, due to Christmas family commitments 🤦🏼‍♂️

With a slightly depleted squad I’m going with a 2-1 win also, but with visions of being 1,999 attendance due to 720 tickets being sold already online and Boston selling 200 also!
