The original plan was for four down from National North & South. National League refused as they deemed it too excessive to relegate four teams from a 22 team division.

Prior to formation of National North and South, Step 2 leagues were always 4 down in a 22 team league. The FA should have stepped in but havenít.

Regarding Gash, would have been good if players like Hawkins ďgambledĒ off his flicks a little bit more. Ryan would have had the pace to get in behind defenders. Gash was always capable of winning a ball in the air. Slough tried at all costs to stop him in the play off final.

Hereford did not not have that.They had a big lad up top and their slippery forwards didn't get a look in at our place in the league.Gash provided numerous assists As well.Slough also relied heavily on Floods aerial presence all season.

Same could be said for Kettering. In our games against them it was largely hoof the ball forward and rely on the pace of their forwards, particularly OíConnor. Weymouth were the side that I felt actually tried to play passing football on the deck. Could have been a very different semi final with their two early chances, before we stopped their two big threats (Goodship and Baggie) playing.

Re Siddons - didnít see the best of him? Probably the best goals-to-minutes ratio of any Lynn player since Robbie Harris. I was always told heís better as an impact player, but he generally did make an impact. A great shame he was only brought on against Slough when it was too late, despite the fact we created little else in the second half.

I was having this discussion with somebody the other day, the Hospital End terrace actually stretches back beyond the fence. Not sure when or why it was ever reduced in size.

Bit early for We Are The Champions ?! Itís a semi final, even if we win tonight it means nothing until the final whistle blows on Monday.

Thanks for the suggestions though, there is a playlist currently being worked on and Iíll try and include a few.

The fans have got it in them to produce a good atmosphere, particularly when we went behind against Kettering and Hereford everyone got behind the players again straight away. Just hoping for a good crowd, lots of noise and hopefully a win!

Don't want to be a kill joy but Weymouth the only play off team Lynn have not beaten. Chance to put that right suppose. As I have previously posted be a travesty if Lynn don't go up, top or second all season and only team to beat champions home and away, in golf it would be a gimmee but it aint golf.  Come on Lynn ya gotta do it.  :scarf:

Iím not worried. We may not have beaten them in 18 years but we hadnít beaten Kettering since 1971 and pulled off a result a couple of weeks ago. We look a more accomplished side since we lost away in the early part of the season. Not to mention their keeper getting man of the match that day which suggests we werenít totally outplayed. Weíve proved we are a match for anyone this season.

Lots of positives from Chesham, we started fast, got an early goal, then didnít let up and were able to extend our lead. Outside observers argued we would have the toughest game of the play off sides on Saturday yet we barely let Chesham out of their own half in the opening half hour.

Travelling fans were magnificent too, lots of them and in good voice. After a turbulent week off the pitch it was great to hear them behind the players throughout and should leave us all in no doubt that everyone is fully committed for the play offs.

Itís likely that the summer league reorganisation will see us part ways, but Iíve always found Chesham a friendly club and itís an away ground I will miss visiting.

A few hoodoos to put to bed in the play offs this time around. Three previous games, three defeats and no goals from open play (our only goal was a Grant Cooper penalty); and no victory over Weymouth in 18 years. I feel weíre a stronger more confident side since our two league meetings, and despite losing at their place their goalkeeper got MOM that day. Weíve also only lost twice in the league since the turn of the year (Kettering and Tiverton away); that run includes 7 games against the top 5.

I would guess that Luke Pearson will be named on the bench for the play offs. Makes sense for such a crucial game (or two).

Well their goalie should have been sent off and he handled out of his area but we should not miss penaltyís that miss could cost us dearly

Not scored a league penalty since Michael Clunan missed at Kettering. Very dramatic by Hawkins but he got his foot to the ball at the same time the goalie got his hand there so benefit of doubt given. Pity Task hit it straight at goalie who is right footed!

Mettam scored one against Dorchester in January. After getting a fair few penalties pre-Christmas this was only our third since the turn of the year.

Frome were only able to field a team of 10 players to start the game, which from what I understand had no recognised goalkeeper and finished with 9 after one got injured.

A mixture of injuries, suspensions and players walking out after the manager left a few weeks ago.

Gosportís relegation rivals Dunstable go to Frome next Saturday.

Weymouth are the best team Iíve seen this season, mean in defence and a potent attack (Goodship is one of the best strikers in the division). Hereford and Kettering look good going forward but I wasnít particularly impressed with either side defensively. Slough defended well against us but possibly lack that killer touch going forward.

Play offs look the likely route but at this stage of the season there is still a real possibility we could hit 100 points and it not be enough for automatic promotion.

Our performances against Hereford and Slough were professional and caught the eye, but if it comes to the play offs we need to break our wretched form against both Weymouth (last win 2000) and Kettering (2001) who have been bogey teams for us.
