General Discussion / Re: Tommy talk

Tommy certainly has some fixed ideas on how he will return us to the top Division of Non League Football.

SC and his new Commercial Manager will have their work cut out to fund all of that.  I think the idea Tommy has of being handed responsibility for the full budget all connected to the playing side makes sense.  I guess this would include.

Coaching, Medical and Management salaries
Travel
Overnight stays
Signing on fees
Players wages
Transfer fee
Training facilities including gym and swimming pool.

So only just about a complete u-turn required by the Owner to let go of control to this extent. Good luck with that.      TW appears to have got his own way so far, how long will it last?

On getting promotion to National League North, I believe that IC's first aim was not to get relegated and expected to take a couple of seasons to 'consolidate' Lynn's status at the level, reassessing after every 10 games.

In some ways, the impact of the Covid PANdemIC has taken Lynn back to where this plan could be implemented again.

Who are the "scurrilous elements that hang about on the fringes of KLTFC"  Who Mr Lakey  refers to in EDP today?

AKA "Buffoons"?   

I wonder if he'd like to put some meat on the bones of that comment? That could well be a scurrilous comment in itself.

He didn't say what day of the week that he goes round to clean Cleeve's car, either.

Yes, the impression was given that when 'Tommy' s Team' lost, it was because they had previously been coached to pass the ball too much.  Yet, when 'Tommy' s Team' won, it was because he had played with Matt Le Tissier.

Where is Aldershot's next point coming from?

Blaming your own shortcomings on what went on over four months ago would be embarrassing to most.
It is the equivalent of the current Norwich Manager taking a side swipe at the previous manager of Norwich for this week's defeat against Chelsea.

One thing for certain he got it right about Taylor.

Who got it right about Taylor?

Tommy has brought in 8 players since joining but are they really any better than what we had under IC.?

Does that prove that the Club has been under severe budget restraints since the end of last season? :dontknow:
So what have the savings through furlough, the £500,000 loan, FA Cup money and transfer deal income been used for?

Lee Johnson also got a 4 match touchline ban (and £3000 fine) for a recent red card when he was Sunderland Manager.

Or was it powers above not letting cully do his job ??? 
 Wasnít no secret  about the interference , or was it he gave him the funds at the start but cully didnít excel in some signings !!
Little bit of me thinks after the last few games of his reign  perhaps it was player power got him in the position to leave ..

The first line above may be relevant.

Last season with players furloughed so could not continue to develop the team.
The Owner picking his own ineffectual trialists to upset pre-season. The Owner directly signing players to speculate... Yet IC players have yielded a good return when sold on (has that money been reinvested in the side?)

Good luck Tommy!

Barrett.  Then Altintop and Charles are two more

3 of the Owner's speculative signings.
Possibly Barrett's current record indicates that he may not be in peak saleable condition inside the duration of his contract.
So far, the others have not showed at the required level. Yet, if the players are capable, they need a coach with the ability to develop them for the Owner to 'turn a profit'.

For balance we have to thank him for helping to deliver one of the best season we have had ( winning the NLN).  Then we have had this season.   It was such a shame he couldnít keep pace with stuff off the field to match the on field exploits. Then again a lot of that was down to the people he employed.   Ultimately the buck stops with SC.

When the full financial picture is revealed will tell us how good a job he has done.

In conclusion Iím settling for splinters in my arris from sitting on the fence

"Down to the people he employed"?
  I trust you mean the ones that were announced in a fanfare and then never heard of again.  Rather than some of the more recent departures who put up with the Owner's hopeless interference far longer than most could have endured.       (And some of the remaining, longstanding, virtual 'volunteers' still working hard against the odds)

Genuine, heartfelt supporters are starting to appreciate who is responsible for the present situation. The person who personally signed a number of the present squad who are not up to the level and a certain overweight player who should have certainly 'shaped up' by now if seriously interested to revitalise his career.

Seemingly, with the buffer of a couple of holding companies, it appears as if it is The Owner t/a King's Lynn Town FC.         Maybe unlikely that suggestions in the Crouch Report would favour such a business structure.

It's never going to change they need to build stadium outside kings lynn. They could have best groundsman in UK nothing will be any different.

Be careful what you wish for.   A new stadium may be more 'outside' of King's Lynn than might be expected.
