General Discussion / Re: BOSTON AWAY.
« on: December 30, 2019, 04:07:02 PM »
Some information courtesy of Paul Jesus Flanagan from Facebook:

Linnets supporters attending the game at Boston United on Wednesday will be housed in the York Street stand and will enter the stadium via turnstiles 3, 3A and 4.
The Benton Brothers York Street Stand is situated to the east of the pitch. The right-hand side of this stand is reserved for away supporters, who are accommodated by flat terracing as well as the benches above. Entry for this section is through turnstiles 3, 3A and 4. Home supporters access the stand through turnstiles 5 and 6. It is an unusual stand with both terracing near the pitch and seating above and behind. Its capacity is 1,435 with 503 seated.

The ground's car park is for permit holders only. Public parking is on the surrounding roads or at an NCP car park off John Adams Way. (Another Post says this NCP Car Park has now been built on so is no longer there???)

Boston is the nearest railway station to the ground; it is less than 1 mile (1.6 km) away and sign posted throughout the town.
Road travel to the ground from outside the area is by the A1 and the A17 (and A16) Sleaford to Boston road. From the town access to York Street is along John Adams Way and Main Ridge.

Post Code for SatNav is  PE21 6JN.

General Discussion / Re: Boxing day v Boston.

From the off Boston were out of the gates and attacking the Lynn half where we we hard pressed to get out of for the first 10mins or so. Boston were much quicker to the ball and their passing was slick. On a very rare counter attack Adam Marriott was through and looked odds on to beat the goalie. However, he was chased by two defenders and cynically brought down just outside the box -  :red card: and Boston had to reorganise with 10men.

They defended in depth and parked themselves in their own half, waiting for a chance to break forward if the chances arose. 0 - 0 at HT with no side having any real advantage.

Second half started with no changes on either side and withe Boston still playing the defensive and go for a snatched goal on the break. Lynn were attacking but found it hard to find a way through. Boston goalie made several excellent saves. It was looking as if it would go to a scoreless draw.  The Free Kick was wasted going well over Pedro's bar.

Ian Culverhouse made some tactical changes, bringing on Hawkins, Carey and Ward, and these injected some different approaches and Sonny Carey banged the ball into the box, goal-ward bound and Michael Gash made sure it hit the net - 1 - 0. There three or four sets of "handbags" between players but they did not result in more than the Ref calling Captains in for calming words.

Boston threw all they had to try and salvage something and one concerted attack was thwarted by Ryan Jarvis fouling and getting the 2nd  :red card: of the game.

5minutes added and it swayed to and fro but FT came with Lynn bagging all 3points and staying on top 'o table.   :scarf: :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

Iím a little surprised that Mr Hill has never heard a racist comment at the Walks !  I never go to a game anywhere without hearing them all the time !

Malcolm and I sit in the Stands where we are all well behaved - not like the "peasants" down below  :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

We can hear the singing  :dontknow: :dontknow: from across the pitch which can be a bit coarse - calling opposition Northern b*****ds or W****rs.

I suspect that if we wandered amongst the crowds pitch-side we might hear adverse comments - If I did I would report.

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.

Who would not be in my Team:

Jepson (can't recall anything he did well), Mettam (couldn't find the net), Hughes (not good enough asa play maker), Joachim (prima dona), Sands (yes, no, gone), Robbins (too damned volatile to fit in - another yes, no, gone), Holt (yes, yes, gone) Frew (jumped too soon for the ball and missed it) and Simon Clarke (manager  :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:).

Absolutely gutted I canít make it Boxing Day, due to Christmas family commitments 🤦🏼‍♂️

With a slightly depleted squad Iím going with a 2-1 win also, but with visions of being 1,999 attendance due to 720 tickets being sold already online and Boston selling 200 also!

I shall be there and give as many Updates on the LiveFeed as I can without spoiling my enjoyment of the game.

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 / Ebbsfleet v King's Lynn Town - FA Trophy
« on: December 17, 2019, 03:12:46 PM »
Read today that Ebbsfleet have a player on loan from AFC Bournemouth, Tyler Cordner who apparently made an impact as Ebbsfleet progressed to the FA Trophy second round after a 2-0 win away at Enfield.

From Ebbs website Tyler Cordner (21) An assured loan signing from AFC Bournemouth on a six-month deal, the 21-year-old was awarded his first professional contract by the Premier League club in 2017 and turned in a string of impressive performances on loan with Havant & Waterlooville last season. Formerly with Portsmouth before going on to play for Bournemouthís U21s, the highly rated Southampton-born central defenderís maturity belies his age. He had a number of EFL clubs scouting him and having been on the Fleetís radar all summer, he joined his former Cherries colleague Jordan Holmes at the Fleet in late August 2019.

Also other players have had League football experience; No9 Gozie Ugwu (Chesterfield, Yeovil, Plymouth and Shrewsbury) and 8goals this season - No11 Myles Weston (Wycombe, Brentford, Notts C and Gillingham 7goals - No12 Josh Umerah (Charlton, Kilmarnock and Wycombe) 4goals and another Central Defender No5 Ayo Obileye (Dag & Red, Sheffield Wed and Charlton) 3goals.

Obviously a league higher than Lynn and should be more experienced. But the are beatable as they are not having the best season.
