General Discussion / Political and Racist Issues
« on: December 24, 2019, 06:43:54 PM »
Political and Racist Opinions should have their own Post and not tagged onto a different subject.

Quote from Stan on another Post:

"I hope Lynn win but I won't be at the match or any Lynn match in the future. During the last game, at home to Dover a comment was made to one of their substitutes from the crowd. The player looked at the crowd and someone shouted: " Hey, we've had Brexit now!" Many laughed; the player in question looked extremely uncomfortable. Needless to say, the Dover player was black. During the game another black Dover player was taunted continually throughout the game. No specific reference was made of an overtly racist nature but there was probably implicit racism in the taunts.
So, I've mulled this over for days and have decided - this is very difficult as I love supporting Lynn - not to attend any more games. I don't want to be in an environment where such attitudes are common.
So, I wish the team well and anyone who I've peed off on here, many apologies and happy Christmas!"   :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:





You are quite right to object to any racist comments by fans at any football game.

General Discussion / Boston United on Boxing Day
« on: December 24, 2019, 09:13:11 AM »
Looking forward to a "Footy-Fix" on Boxing Day.

Hopefully the team have enough in the tank to get a result but, at this point with injuries and a depleted squad, I would accept a Draw.

My prediction is a 2 - 1 Win with 1250 Attendance.

General Discussion / King's Lynn v Blyth Spartans on Saturday 7th December
« on: December 04, 2019, 09:39:51 AM »
Lynn are flying high but must swoop low down against Blyth who are flapping away just above the bottom of the table.

We all know that such matches often have a twist in the tail as feathers fly and how the mighty can fall and be brought to the ground.

Looking forward to a battle royal and Lynn improving their Goal Difference with a win and a clean sheet. 3 - 0 and 1000+.

General Discussion / Fans Ban-Final Warnings
« on: November 15, 2019, 10:25:26 AM »
Club statement
November 15, 2019

Following a meeting between the King’s Lynn Town football club safety advisory group and representatives of  the local authorities, including Norfolk Police, a person has been given a banning order from attending all fixtures at The Walks stadium for the remainder of the 2019/ 20 season. This is in relation to an incident that took place during the fixture with Chester, played at The Walks  on Saturday October 12th 2019 and another  incident prior to this date. A second person has also been issued with a ‘ final warning  ‘ letter in relation to events that took place , again during the match with Chester. 

During the fixture at Bradford Park Avenue on Saturday November 9th 2019 two King’s Lynn Town supporters were ejected from Bradford’s stadium for incidents that occurred during the first half of the game. These two individuals have been identified by the club and are also (in the process) of receiving ‘ final warning ‘ letters in relation to their actions.  All three persons issued with ‘ final warning’ letters have been told that further repetition of their actions will also result in banning orders from attending all fixtures at The Walks.

The actions of the persons above has seen the club being fined by the Football Association and warned of their future conduct. Indeed an investigation regarding last weekend’s incidents  are still ongoing. It is with all of these factors taken into account  that the club are now adopting a ‘ zero tolerance ‘ stand on such misbehaviour and actions. The club also wishes that all supporters read and are aware of a ‘ safe guarding statement ‘ that appears in every home match programme covering supporter behaviour whilst in the ground.

As a club we value and appreciate your support of the club and team greatly. However we do ask that your support is given correctly and not in a way that could cause offence to others. We will be monitoring  behaviour even more closely from now on, beginning at Southport  on Saturday  ,  to ensure this happens. Further incidents and allegations this season could see serious consequences  for the club in the future.

 The club will be making no further comment on this statement.

General Discussion / Kidderminster Harriers Away.
« on: October 21, 2019, 02:26:40 PM »
What will this week bring in the shape of "Good News"  :dontknow:

Saturday bring us a trip Away to Kidderminster who languish near the foot of the Table with only 1 x home Win (better Away with 3 Wins). Better than Kettering who are Bottom o' 't League  :glum: :glum:  :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

Here's hoping for a Jarvis return at least.  :scarf: :scarf: :comeon: :comeon: :comeon: :scarf: :scarf:

Predictions: 3-1 Win for Lynn and a mediocre attendance of 503

General Discussion / Tactics On The Pitch
« on: October 10, 2019, 09:18:01 AM »
Each game needs preparation to meet the perceived threat and tactics of the other team. How the Manager sets up formations, attacking strategy and defending policies will be determined by their information on the way the other team tends to perform.

Ian Culverhouse will have watched video, sent watchers and spoken to many others to glean what he can about each team. Half time talk and "hair dryer" moments will be based on how both teams are performing in the first half.

Fans watching the game will have many differing thoughts of what should be happening and changes to formations, players, positions and tactics.

Are there any tactics that Lynn should be (in our humble opinions) using  :dontknow:

I will start you off with my old chestnut - a player wide on the far side from the attack, waiting for the overhit/long ball/ball squirting out. There always seems to be lost chances for that 2nd ball into the box.

General Discussion / Rory McAuley's RED Card
« on: September 05, 2019, 03:15:14 PM »
A lot of speculation going on about the "rights" and "wrongs" of Rory's straight Red Card against Alfreton on Tuesday evening.

From my position in the Stands looking at the incident from behind I initially thought they were closer together and Rory had caught him with his elbow. The video clearly shows there was space between them and Rory was much further in front. As such there was no physical threat and Rory was getting away from No10. Why would Rory flail an arm back to intentionally hit him - purely accidental.

The BIG Question  :dontknow: Are King's Lynn lodging/have lodged an Appeal  :dontknow: :dontknow: :dontknow:
