General Discussion / Re: Away to Darlington - Coach ?
« on: April 18, 2023, 08:30:54 PM »
I think if we win at Darlington, we will take the title the following week. Would expect Fylde to beat Leamington. Fyldeís midweek game at Curzon is where Iím hoping they will drop points, going for a draw. So if that all pans out, Fylde and us are level on points, but we have the much better goal difference. So a home win on the last day of the season against Curzon would do it.
Winning at Darlington would really put the pressure on Fylde. Didnít think we would be contemplating winning the title a few weeks ago, but itís a real possibility now.

I wasnít a fan of Omotayo during ICís reign, he just didnít score enough goals. The National League was and is a tougher level than the NLN, so at the time perhaps he wasnít quite up to speed, good enough or whatever. He has done really well this season and any doubters (I was one) have to admit that he is capable at this level. The bullet header against Kettering is the sort of goal I would like to see him score more of. With his height and strength, he should be able to do that. For me, he has improved very much so, and we know that he is good at defending too. He got the assist for Barrettís wonder goal at P Sports (watch the video) and of course, the winner at Doncaster. So, total respect to him, you canít fault his effort.
If we go up and he stays, it will be interesting to see how he does against better opposition. He did alright against Doncaster after all.

General Discussion / Goals at Alfreton

Fantastic win today against a good Alfreton side. Another clean sheet too and with Fylde losing again, we may not be in the play offs after all. The goal difference could be the deciding factor and as it stands, we have a plus 10 better than Fylde. Next Saturday is going to be huge, firstly we need to beat Southport, which will of course not be easy. And if Boston can take points off of Fylde, we could find ourselves in a very good position come 5pm. Should be a good attendance on Saturday, 1800 should be achievable.

Well done to Mark, Hugo and the team on a fantastic win today. Brilliant team selection, they all played well and are doing us proud.

Dills why not invest a few quid in the Club and have 90 mins worth.  That way you could get the full picture.
Agree with Mallard, Dilly there is no doubting that Barrett is a talented footballer and like yourself, I would prefer him to be in the team. However, he would probably be the first to admit that he hasnít had the best of games, by his standards, for a few weeks. I was at the Kettering game and he had a few misplaced passes, where he showed his disappointment. You cannot make a proper judgement on the YouTube clip. He is your first on the team sheet player, but of late he hasnít exactly justified that.
It seems you donít go to the games now, I do remember reading the reason why some time ago. Someone near me on Friday remarked that Barrett hadnít had a good game for several weeks. But thatís because we know what he is capable of and probably expect more from him. As I say, he would be in my starting 11, but of late he hasnít hit the levels weíve seen from him previously.

We dominated the game and were worth winners. Getting the goal on the stroke of half time was important, as Kettering were happy to defend and frustrate, but they had to be more open in the second half. Omotayoís first goal was a bullet header from a corner and that gave us a nice buffer. Cosgrave was fouled in the box and won a penalty, which Theo was desperate to take, but Omotayo stepped up and confidently dispatched it. Game was now over as a contest, before we made it 4, before Kettering getting a goal.
Was nice that Mark Hughes subbed Theo, as that gave the Lynn fans the opportunity to applaud him in what couldnít have been an easy week for him. Mark and Hugo walked around after the final whistle to applaud the fans, which was reciprocated. Mark and Hugo shared an embrace as they were leaving the pitch, there was a sense of real togetherness from them, players and fans after the game.
Omotayo deservedly got man of the match, not just for his 2 goals, he defended our box well, as he always does and won his fair share of headers. Dixon-Hodge looks assured and a good find, distributes the ball well, notably with some long throws. Oxlaide-Chambalain had a good game and is cementing a regular starting place. Barrett seams to have lost his way of late, but did assist for our opener.
Overall, a great win, which will set the team up nicely for Alfreton, With Chester dropping 2 points, second place is looking good, but if we were to win our remaking 4 games and Fylde were to drop 5 points from their remaining 5, it would them come down to goal difference. Hopefully, Kidderminster can do us a big favour on Monday.

General Discussion / Re: Points deduction for Shots?
« on: April 04, 2023, 06:52:54 PM »
If that happens they will have literally SHOTS themselves in the foot. Canít see it being a points deduction however, but can understand their fans concerns considering where they sit in the league. Their fans would be the ones to suffer, thatís not fair on them so for their sake, hopefully it doesnít come to that.

General Discussion / Thank you Mark, Hugo, Paul, Steve

A big thank you to Mark and Hugo for stepping in to manage the club. Thank you Paul too for your coaching role and of course Steve too, for acting quickly in replacing TW.
It would be nice to see a big turn out Friday to show appreciation and get behind the team. It has been a difficult time for players and staff alike. Really hope that this team (all players) will see the season out and for Theo to score the winner in the play off final. Must be a difficult time for Theo, but while he is a Linnet, we must all support him.

General Discussion / Re: Who next?

Wonít be Culverhouse or Dean, they are both under contract at their respective clubs and neither would want to come to Lynn for the short remainder of the season.

No new manager will be appointed. The level we are at next season will play a part in who would be interested. Hugo and Mark, or Josh Coulson / Michael Clunan will be amongst the caretaker managers I would think.
Forget about Setch / IC and co, their time has been and gone. When we know what League where in for next season and whether full or part time, SC will then look to appoint a replacement.

General Discussion / Re: Widdrington Resigns
« on: April 01, 2023, 11:18:04 PM »
Really shocked and disappointed in Tommy, if he has just resigned. Very unprofessional of him if thatís the case. We donít know what has one on behind closed doors, or why he didnít have the decency to see the season out, irrespective to what level we find ourselves at next season.
It makes it difficult for Theo now, hopefully his commitment is with Lynn and he will have added incentive to win promotion with Lynn and play at National League level.

Outstanding away win at Chorley and another clean sheet. TW is maybe now realising his best starting 11, albeit there was an enforced change just prior to kick off.
Well done Tommy, great team choice and performance. Another excellent performance from Tommy Dixon-Hodge too. Just got to keep ahead of Chester and not worry about anyone else.
Well done TW and team.

If only we had beaten Fylde last week

Just because you have, letís say 3 forwards as opposed to just one, wonít guarantee scoring more goals and sometimes, yes it maybe determined by the opponents and most definitely, whether at home or away. I understand what youíre saying Dilly, but if you have a less defensive set up, then youíre probably more likely to concede, itís a fine balance. I think we can expect a similar line up at Chorley, surely to go attack minded away to a play off hopeful side would not be prudent. If we can stay above Chester, then the only Ďmust winí games are the 2 play off games, assuming of course that Fylde go on to win the league.
TWís game plan and selection worked at Hereford, so letís all respect his knowledge and choices, Iím sure had we lost or drawn he would have come in for criticism. We watch football for a reason and Tommy manages football for a reason.
