General Discussion / Re: Cleeve in the Norwich paper.
« on: September 18, 2022, 09:00:46 AM »
I have to disagree with "Lynski's" post .... Boston, demographically, is no where near as large as King's Lynn, with a population of some 35,000, Lynn has more than 8,000 more inhabitants (Wikapedia). I agree, however with the bulk of "Blue & Golds" post.
The town does not deserve a professional football team. In recent years, the ‘fickle’ fans of King’s Lynn have been fair weather fans ….. not sufficient to support a full time team!

For 70 years I have been following this club and with a whiff of nostalgia, I remember as a lad, the heady days of the ‘old’ Midland League in the 50’s, when teams like Peterborough were regular visitors to the Walks, with gates of a few thousand. I suppose one could argue that, in those days, people had less distractions; cars, mobile phones, personal computers and other high tech devices that seem to preoccupy the modern generation but one just can’t beat standing on the terraces stamping one’s feet to stay warm and feasting on some damned good football.

I despair at the many negative comments about the manager and chairman! I agree the forum, with its ancient roman roots, should be a place for free expression, but some of the vitriolic language on here is so unnecessary. One can express an opinion without resorting to downright nastiness.

Humans have since time immemorial, erred in decision making and running a football club as the chairman does, is no exception but for goodness sake without his money there would not be a club at all.

Having lived and worked overseas for most of my life, I now live in the West Country, and it pains me to witness a ‘village’ club like Forest Green Rovers, getting promoted to League One … all down to one former ‘hippie’ who had a vision, and through his commendable efforts on everything surrounding protecting the climate, and through his ‘Ecotricity’ success, ploughed funds into the club. Not suggesting our current chairman pursues a path in eco correctness, nor do I condone feeding our players vegan food, but for goodness sake, let’s cut Mr. Cleeve some slack.

Sorry if I come across as taking the simple and moral high ground but I feel passionately about our little club and long may it prosper!

My take on Boston is that they have been playing league football this century and have a much, much nicer ground to visit.
Lynn's also nestled between Norwich and Peterborough.

In regards to Forest Green  They are trailblazing and ethically sound. Their ethos has rightfully garnered international support. I hope they continue to thrive and get out of their current rut.
Also, when it comes to vegan/plant based footballers you have Messi and Aguero topping the list of those who ditch meat for their careers. I don't have the stats, but a wholefood plant based diet is cholesterol free, low fat, improves heart function and highly anti inflammatory,

I think it would have been a valuable lesson to everyone, providing they can rectify it. Better now than at a potentially crucial stage later the season

I've just noticed that the official site is looking far more professional than it ever has.

 John H,  I think your idea about the players going to the schools is a fantastic idea

So, does Tommy stick with the starting XI from last week or swap things round to find a spot for Barrett?  Personally against the better sides in the league I don't think we are strong enough to play any of a) only two centre halves, b) two in midfield or c) just one up top but maybe given Blyth's managerial situation (strange decision after losing by the odd goal to one of the favourites to go up) TW could play Barrett and bench one of the centre halves / midfielders and go for it a bit more.

I am not sure what to expect on or off the pitch so would just be happy with a win and anything approaching 1000 in the stands

I think for consistency sake Tommy will go for the same 11 again. Perhaps if Blyth don't offer much get the wingbacks forward more and bring Barrett off the bench. Also with Denton on the left side of the back 3, he could drift into left back position in theory and Barrett could play left wing.
I think we have alot more options for this season

Gold was much maligned, hopefully he continues to prove the doubters wrong :scarf:

At least this forum is showing some interest in Saturday’s game.   Seems like Reg and his team have forgotten the season starts Saturday.

Wakey Wakey

Then there's the small issue of this seasons Squad photo's. Club's site is still showing last season's squad with the likes of Ross Barrow and Malachi Linton still being here, and of course none of the new signings.   :dontknow: Reminder........we KO this Saturday!

Clubs site is also still showing last seasons league table rather than this seasons, ready for KO.

Still showing Dale Stokes as Football Development Officer who apparently left his position a couple of months ago.

If the Club really wants more fan involvement and engagement, they need to up their game a bit in this area.

Take a look at Boston's site, individual player profiles etc

I think Hargreaves will be the deepest mid and break things up, Clunan and Jones double up on the right. Barrett as 10 but drifting out left and Gold as the focal point up front

TW could play Stephens and Barrett either side of Gold or Ponticelli. Or maybe 2 up top and a 3 man midfield, or Barrett in front of 2 others and behind 2 strikers

Regarding Ponticelli, 1 Wrexham fan on FB reckons he's a hard worker and surprised he went to us and not an EFL side, whilst another likened him to someone chasing a carrier bag around a car park

They do indeed, near the free car park.

To be fair to the trial keeper, Nemesis, he didn't have a 6ft4 target to go long to

Jones didn't look half as switched on as the trial keeper.
Aaron Jones was lively. Coulson was very assured. Denton and Scott nothing remarkable to say good or bad. Crowther impressed me. Hargreaves was pumped and energetic throughout. Widdrington pulled off a lovely bit of skill first half. Clunan solid. Omatayo a handful at both ends. Walker I barely noticed.

Why does Boris whistle when sat on the toilet?
So he remembers which end to wipe
