Those that believe that players will most probably be fatigued and thus underperform will not enjoy this.

Al about opinions Stan,all about opinions. :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

What has an Alfreton news story got to do with Lynn?

I think it is pointing more to the fatigue in a squad in general,and the forum is for all things worthy of a mention football related. :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

Lots of posts bemoaning our ďsmallĒ squad, but in terms of people up to first team level we are well off because none of the squad are fill-ins ...  they are all real assets and itís now difficult to pick a team because to do so you would have to leave out potential match-winners.  Iíve mentioned Carey and Kelly before, and they MUST play regularly so that the team benefits from their talents and also that they are happy to remain.  But I donít envy IC, because it must be very difficult to settle on a line-up at the moment.  I personally hope the game gets postponed tonight because the pitch is in for a flood, and we donít want injuries vs York....

Probablt still have the sprinklers on before kick off. :laughcry: :laughcry: :rain: :rain:

KES80..Reality is, the club is managing resource, the starting line up was within the expectations of most, as best available. This is good for the club and players, as I said FA Cup funds might be very useful if the squad frailties you refer are real. What do you want and expect? another Gash on the Bench? another Marriott on the Bench, Get real. The club is doing so well , but still not good enough for you. I understand your passion, but the concerns you have are not valid or realistic.
You neither understand my concerns or position and don't seem to have really read my post.It is for the very reason that the club cannot afford another Gash, that I offer the alternative stance that I do.
Yes there is the carrot of money and exposure from a good cup run....but it is not quite the draw that many believe. Just look at today's attendances e.g. Hereford 1115 (league average 2,500) Telford 700 odd (1100) Alfreton 355 (450).
So as I have said, the revenues from good league attendance can be much more valuable.
If you wish to have a reasoned discussion, then I am all for it........

Were we not led to believe that the budget was based on average gates of 750/800 over the league games? So any extra revenue for all cups including prize money is a bonus? :dontknow: :bankrupt:

By the way, .... rather disappointing attendances despite real improvement from last season, but the team IC, and SC deserve far bigger crowds.  SPREAD THE WORD !!

Factors to take into account were Norwich at home to Man City and world Stock car championship on the same day,and the local leagues are playing again? :dontknow:

I would guess we would all rather see a winning team on the pitch, than having a ground full of sponsor boards and better catering!
The team as we all acknowledge are currently punching above their weight. Probably moving forward faster than plans laid off the pitch.
I agree would be great to have a bit more in place off the field, hopefully it will come soon.
Lets not be too negative, there are lots of things that are positive, that the chairman has addressed. The pitch, the sprinkler system, the ground is safe and tidy, the B&G has improved.(even a dart board that I saw someone request)
I would say, tell your friends all the good stuff currently happening at the walks and for the time being, enjoy the ride. Trust that the other stuff will follow, soon!
ps I was in the Globe Sunday. People were walking out as too busy!! Mr Wetherspoon not doing too bad for himself.

I too was in the Globe,45 minute wait for food,but I had the option of going elsewhere,don't have that option at the ground! :dontknow:

Need to look at employing more people to serve food and drinks,20 minute wait at the bar to get a beer,either miss the end of the first half or beginning of the second half. Rushing the cooking of the burgers because not enough precooked,mine was half cooked! People were leaving the bar without being served,lost revenue? :dontknow:
