General Discussion / Re: King's Lynn Town FC v Weymouth Town

Be interesting to see how many will go along to watch this one.

Surely if Tommy doesn’t get 3 points from this one then where does he go from there ?

3-1 home win for me

Would take a 1-0 win. We haven't scored 3 goals in a game for over four months and we can't keep a clean sheet, so I will go for a 2-1 win.
Barrett and Charles to start if fit.

If we were going to get a new forward, that would have happened by now. What decent forward who is good enough would want to actually come, with relegation looking most likely.
February sees us with 7 games, 5 of which are at home. Win all 5 home games and come the final game of the season we just need to win to stay up. Gold scores the winner in added time.

I watched TW's interview in which he hinted of a new player. Surely has to be a forward, but no its another midfielder. Don't point the finger at the forwards if they don't score he said. He must be on another planet if he really thinks the current 'top man' that would be GO. What fitting initials. Another defeat tomorrow then.

The cup game was at home to Histon, we got a last minute equaliser. We won the replay at Histon 8-0, it was 6-0 at half time.

Losing to Tonbridge could be a blessing I disguise, maybe there is a positive there.
With the current forward line it is unlikely that we will win enough games to stay up. Without wishing to disrespect Tonbridge, we weren't good enough to beat them, a team struggling one league lower.
If SC and TW King's Lynn to be a National League side next season, then they need to bring in at least one forward. It may cost, but what would be the cost of relegation. This is a level that we may not get to play in again anytime soon, so the ball is in their court. If a forward isn't brought in real soon, then we know what their answer is.

I sincerely hope we do stay up and then see if we could be better on the pitch next season. We have been needing a goal scorer for some time and so far no one has come in that can do that. We simply don't score enough goals, so unfortunately relegation is quite likely.

Mallard, yes this is true, I guess that applies to most clubs though. At the start of this season, most of us I would think would say that a successful season would be to avoid relegation. Of course, we can still achieve that, it's by no means impossible.
SC can see how tough this level is and he knows what is needed, maybe he should have acted sooner. It would probably take a couple of seasons at this level to find our feet and to become a good mid table team.

Good post as always TonyM.

I sincerely hope IC stays. He as TonyM says is a top manager and despite what Mallard says, I'm sure IC doesn't want to go. Ian would much rather stay and get us two more places up the league table. Now that's not a massive ask, but agree that on current form it would look that way.
I was surprised that our new forward didn't start the game yesterday, but hopefully he will for the next game.
Its a shame that Gold hasn't produced the goals. If it was any other business he would have probably 'left' by now. He clearly isn't good enough and to me, doesn't warrant a place in the team. Maybe he could be a sub in cast Paul Jones got injured.
Survival us still well within our reach, but even with our latest recruit, we need one more forward. Every week we here, it will be another tough game, they're an ex football league side. They're ex, because they weren't good enough at that level, that goes for all of them. Maybe we didn't expect to be at this level so soon and maybe everything isn't set up for it. It's about taking an opportunity, because if we get relegated, would we ever regain our current status. Look, we all knew it would be a challenge, but let's not throw the towel in yet. Hopefully IC will stay and come the end of the season, we are all smiling.

Well said Tony. Yes, we have had good fortune to get us to this level and indeed kept us here for a second season.
A few posters on here seem to have a somewhat negative approach with their glass half empty.
Two successive promotions for any team and they will probably find its a bit harder going. IC got us those promotions and he would be the first to admit he is still learning. He is actively looking to solve our lack of scoring and when he does, I think we will see our league position improve. This is a time to show support and faith in IC.

For whatever reason, Morias didn't work out how we hoped. It's very evident to see where we are lacking. How long do you carry on before addressing the issue. This is a positive move and hopefully his replacement will bring more goals.
Let's remember where we were not so many years ago. This is our first real season at this level and success is to not get relegated. Our general play is good, we just need to score goals, you would assume that is being addressed, so a little patience is needed.
If you've ever watched 'Sunderland til I die', you would have a better appreciation of how difficult getting it right is.

Morias wasn't scoring goals, so if his departure is to allow someone else to come in, then that is a good move.
SC and IC know what they are doing, this is a very positive move to address our goal scoring problem.

I still think starting Barrett could be beneficial with his passing and reading of the game. We need to take the game to opponents from the off, at the moment, we seem to only do that in the second half, by which time we are losing.
Would be interesting to see how the match Pan's out, should we take the lead. The confidence and whole mood would be good. I'm still optimistic that we will come good. I see we have signed a new defender today, guess we were hoping for a forward, but I'm sure SC and IC are working on that.

Not sure Josh Barrett is fully fit to play 90 minutes, but that doesn't stop him from starting. Would like to see McGavin on at the start of all games. Wouldn't be surprised to see a new forward coming in very soon. Gold didn't start against Walsall and although he played ok when he came on, he hasn't done what is expected of him, by scoring goals.
Taylor could figure I guess and maybe should get a run of games to see if he can do what the other forwards can't.

Good second half and an unfortunate deflection resulting in their goal. Lynn players can all hold their heads high, great effort. We can all take encouragement from today's performance.

Very well said Badger, I totally agree with you.
IC is one of the best managers in this league and we owe him a lot for bringing the quality and level of football we have now got.
We are not going to get promotion year on year. Success this season is and always has been, to stay in this league. I am confident we will achieve that. As for tomorrow, its the FA Cup and if we take the game to Walsall like we did in the second half against Boreham, we have every chance of getting a good result.
