General Discussion / Re: Put the club up for sale

From what I understand the Chairman is willing to sell 100%.  You should contact him.

Assuming rumours are correct about the club and finances, I'd rather he ignore the abuse and try to find a solution.  If the club goes down there will be the instant gratification for some people seeing SC fail, but he will go back to his life, big house, family, Bentley, business, holidays and we the fans end up with nothing.

This is an interesting one.  My family and I are occasional spectators at the Walks having moved to the area 2 years ago.  My view is if SC puts club into administration that's the end of the club.  There's a lot of talk about administration but it will probably go quickly into liquidation.   Dipping into administration only works if all creditors agree to have debts cancelled or take x% in the £, which will be unlikely.  If the club enters liquidation all contracts are broken which means there's no lease on the stadium, all players are out of contract and will be near impossible to resurrect the club.  To come out of the right side of administration there would need to be a person/party which significant funds to keep it going and to do a deal with the creditors.  If that person/party does exist then its another SC.  Even if the trust steps in and keeps the club afloat, the trust or the people leading the trust will be getting slammed on this forum for how they run it.  For one, I'm glad SC took the chance to give us league football.  It hasn't worked out but it's been a journey to remember.  I just hope we don't get to a place that we don't have any weekend football to attend.  That will be the nail in the coffin for our town.  Even a community club needs funds and a leader and a community of fans will always be divided on the way forward for a club.  I'd like to see us make it to the end of the season and start playing within our means.

How does anyone get a seat on ‘The Board’ at a club like Kings Lynn when you have one man who thinks he can run it all himself?    What a ridiculous argument.   Plus IF there was one available who in their right mind would buy a position at a Club that is in debt to the tune that we will see when the next lot of figures are available.

Mallard is right.  Ridiculous argument.  Board members represent the shareholders, in this case I'm assuming SC is the only shareholder and he obviously thinks he can represent himself.  The biggest issue here Mallard mentioned above is given club are in debt, a director steps onto the board, he/she takes on shared personal liability for that debt if it isn't paid.  Who on earth would do that?

Having an advisory board who can interact with SC would make some sense.  Having fan representation on that would be more likely; problem is not all fans agree, just look at this forum.  So which fan/fans would get that opportunity?  And then whichever fan/fans join the advisory board they would get slated on this forum by the fans which aren't happy with the agenda they are pushing.

Mallard is right. A board is there to represent the shareholders. There’s only one shareholder and it seems

I think one of two things will happen. If we get a bit of luck I think beating the drop is a possibility. This season isn’t a lost cause as of yet. There’s a lot of winnable games left and there’s enough positive signs (however small) that this isn’t yet time to call it a day.

But if we do go down, I see the possibility of a double relegation. If we go down, the squad will be decimated, the NLN is a good standard with some good teams and it won’t be easy.

I feel a strange sense amongst some fans that they will take some pleasure in a relegation as it will somehow be a slap down for that Chairman. But regardless of who runs the club, I want to see national league football so we will be there supporting hoping the little part we play helps us stay up another season.

Nobody will be buy the club as arguably the club has a negative value.  Few assets with significant debt.  Not only does it have a negative value, if this turns into a supporter owned club, the supporters will have to put in significant cash on a week to week basis to keep the club afloat.  So whether you like the Chairman or not, he's keeping the club afloat and it would be hitting his bank account.  So you can wish the Chairman goes, but be careful what you wish for. 

However, it would be interesting to see if enough fans stumped up the cash to make a serious bid.  You could try to raise the money, set up a GoFundMe but I doubt you were be able to raise enough money to pay off even a couple of percent of what people on this forum claim the debt the club has.  Whilst everyone is an expert on how the club should be run, few will put their money where their mouth is.

With IC stating he's refusing to change his style of play; is he just orchestrating his own dismissal?  A decent manager would have a decent chance of getting Kings Lynn out of this mess by playing a different style (as Mallard has suggested).  It seems to be the team aren't as bad as their league position suggests.  If the Chairman wants to beat relegation a new manager has to come in.  IC seems to be playing Russian roulette.  Stick to same game plan which means relegation.  IC is either inept at his job or he's playing this way on purpose knowing full well it leads to defeat after defeat to pile pressure on the Chairman to sack him.  Either way, its not doing much for the managers reputation.  Unfortunately for us fans we are stuck on the sidelines watching it unfold.  The more defeats, the smaller the crowds, smaller gate receipts, less money available for a striker.  We are in a vicious cycle.  Now that I've written this, Murphy's Law would suggest we win the next 3 on the bounce.

Thank you for the post.  We moved to the area several months ago and my children play in the Kings Lynn junior teams and we've been to all but 1 home game.  Your post gives me a lot of background as to the state of the play.  As a complete new comer who doesn't know the Chairman or manager I'm not as emotionally involved as others but my take is this: the football philosophy of the manager (and maybe its that of the Chairman too) cannot be executed with the current players in the squad.  It would be like Pep Guardiola trying to implement his style on Burnley.  Your style of play needs to be built of the players you have.   If he wants to constantly play from the back he needs a new squad, if a new squad cannot be bought in he needs to change his style.  The team is trying to play like Man City whilst getting battered in the National League whilst in a relegation spot. It doesn't make sense.  We just can't keep putting the players under pressure at the back.  I think the team is good enough to beat relegation if tactics are adjusted to play to their strengths.  Obviously a new striker is needed  but outside of that the team can compete.  Morias wasn't anywhere near good enough so selling him isn't an excuse at all.   I guess my view is change the style of play or change the manager if we are sticking with this group of players.  Whatever happens my boys love coming to the games and we will continue to be there to support.
