General Discussion / Re: Curson Ashton post match
« on: August 26, 2019, 01:38:41 PM »
Looking at videos of York, Chester etc we certainly shouldn't be too fearful. Once we get over the next 4 games (hopefully, with some decent outcomes), then it is mainly Saturdays, which should help a lot.
Tough one today after only 48hrs rest, at Farsley....poor bumpy pitch by all accounts against a big side who frequently pump it long.
Be interesting to see what tactics IC employs.

Looking at York's League Results they could only hold Farsley 0-0 at Home and all their wins are against teams that are at present in the lower half of the table - two of which are the bottom two.

Curzon Ashton arrived late for The Ball but certainly made an impressive entrance.

All over us and we were on the back foot and slipping all over the place - especially Michael Clunan who might as well been playing in slippers for all the grip his boot gave him (thankfully he appeared to play in running spikes 2nd half). Curzon's goal came quickly and I thought we were in for a thrashing.

Somehow the lads started to keep possession for longer spells and this gave the confidence. We then took the game to Curzon who still looked slick and dangerous. The penalty and Gashy's great headed goal took the wind out of their sails and Lynn finished the 1st half much beeter than they started.

2nd half we dominated but Curzon still looked as if they had the heart to get an equaliser. That is until our 3rd which saw their heads drop and the 4th put the final nail in their coffin. Give them their due, Curzon still played good passing football (they all knew where each other would be). They lifted themselves up and tried to get one back but Lynn started to play "keep the ball" and all Curzon could do was run after it.

Well done lads - my MOM would have been Rory McAuley for how he controlled the backs and cool under any pressure.

Watched the Video (thanks Ben Asher).

Ryan Fryatt was unlucky with his header, goal-bound, but  tipped over by goalie. From reports I thought that Brackley's goal was more of a scrambled shot after a rebound but it was much more composed. The Smith penalty was a bit of iffy one to me. Seen much worse but then again much softer one's given. Justice possibly in the missed penalty. Brackley certainly looked a handful in attack on both wings, especially on the right with No2 and No7. Brackley were not shy in having a shot. I think Hawkins needs a game as he runs at the defence where Gash and Marriott are more target man and poacher together. We have the attack capabilities in Fox, Jones/Barrows (Wings) and Henderson, Hawkins (Midfield) but need a "Gash" type in the Centre Target-man role. My old "need a man on the far side of the attack to gather the over-hit cross/corner of ball squirting out of defence" comments are repeated. Well Done for the Point Away!  :comeon: :comeon: :scarf: :scarf: :comeon: :comeon:

As much as I don't want Hereford to be too successful I just hope Simon Clarke is not on their shortlist.  :laughcry: :laughcry:

My fist visit to the walks  for a long time up to Lynn for a wedding. Must say I was very impressed by the team today, they controlled the game in every area of the field. I thought every player gave his all for the team. I have to say in my humble opinion Gash is a standout player  he didn't stop running all game and terrorized their defence. A great display from all the team. Finally nice to meet westlynnmike  and twiggy made my day to put a face to the name. Hopefully it will not too long before I can make another visit. :scarf: : :scarf:

Nice to meet you as well Somerset. Now you know where we sit you can relate to the game reports and meet again soon.

Lynn started the game with the same Team and Subs as Tuesday against Kettering.

We started confidently and Hereford really were being shown how to play. They could only defend against attacking play from all directions. Our defence dealt with an uninspired Hereford strike force, our midfield broke down their play which comprised long balls with the wind behind them in the first half. We managed to keep the ball down most of the time and lots of one-two's cut Hereford apart. Fox was good on the left, playing further forward than FBT used to do. Henderson was all over the place and Clunan and Jarvis controlled midfield. McAuley and Fryatt were immense and Smith tidied up between them. Jones attacked more in the 2nd half down the right. Gash flicked on most high ball into the path of Marriott and Hendo. Fox crossed from the left after some good running at the the defender and Gashy thumped home his header for No1 from the far side of the cross. Several chances were not taken by the strikers, dilly dallying and passing when a shot may have been the better option.Gash dropped the ball into Hendos path for a a late 1st half goal - 2-0. 2nd half was more of the same with Hereford really not able to break through on the odd occasion they attacked. Jones smashed home to make it 3 - 0 and Hereford got a bit more energetic but could only break through once for a consolation goal. Lynn saw the game out by attacking with defence more in mind - don't mess it up attitude. At this rate Hereford will struggle again this season and will be lucky to finish mid table or just above. We ended the day in 3rd. Guiseley also dropped points today so anything is possible. Early Days but promising.

Long balls and crosses have been the mantra for English football for too long.  We were much better when we settled and played more football.  I think this team may be good enough to that this season, and surprise several fancied teams.

Yes, play progressive football, attack up the wings as well as through the middle and ....... have someone on the far side to collect the overhit long cross/corner.

General Discussion / Large Crowds and Queues
« on: August 08, 2019, 12:03:26 PM »
Lots of comments about Queues stretching out to Tennyson Road and along the Fence Line. Seems to be a blockage at the Box Office.

The problem is at the Ticket Box Office. A speedier way of paying and issuing tickets is needed. I remember on one occasion they had printed off several hundred tickets so less of a wait for printer to print off ticket when there was a queue.

Also they could filter the queue into 3 lanes rather than one lane that then splits at the Box Office - Lane 1 Correct Money, Lane 2 Need Change, Lane 3 More Than One Ticket (1 person queues).

Also Filter arrival at Entrance to 1, On the Right Access to Season and Online Tickets Only (Keep the Person with Scanner There) 2, On the Left Ticket Holders who have been to the Box Office and have bought a Physical Ticket.

General Discussion / No Smoking - New Policy at The Walks.
« on: August 03, 2019, 02:57:21 PM »
From the "Other Site" news of a slight change to the Smoking Policy:

King's Lynn Town announce new smoking policy
August 1, 2019

The Linnets have announced a new smoking policy that will come into place at The Walks on Tuesday, August 6, the evening of the opening home fixture with Kettering Town in the Vanarama National League North.
The main stand seated area has been a non-smoking part of the stadium for a number of seasons.
As from Tuesday that area will be extended to cover all of the terrace below the seats, the area at either end of the main stand including the entrances to the Blue & Gold Sports Bar and the cafe and turnstiles and all of the covered area of terrace on the opposite side of the stadium.
The open terrace at both the Tennyson Road and Hospital End will be areas where smokers can still enjoy a cigarette.
Club media officer Mark Hearle said: "Itís something that has been discussed for a while now and itís been decided to bring it in for the start of the new season.
"We will be erecting signs to remind people and be making various announcements to the crowd via the PA.
"Our stewards will be briefed and instructed to implement the new ruling in a firm but friendly and sensible way."

Now I will be able to watch all of the action without the Smoke Screen rising from in front and below. Hurrah.  :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

General Discussion / The Friendlies are Over - Now the Season Begins
« on: July 31, 2019, 09:02:13 AM »
Last night saw the last of the Friendlies with a 3-3 Draw against a useful Charlton Under 23's.

Lynn went 2 - 0 down in 4minutes with a penalty and being cut wide open by some very fast passes and a non-existent defence.

The Team took some time to settle down and then started to pass the ball around and gain some composure. I feel that Charlton sat back to soak up some pressure to give their defence and midfield something to do. It was good for us as well to be able to work some good moves together. Crosses and free kicks got the ball into the area but nothing until Clunan fouled and Kelly slotted home a penalty. Hawkins then smashed home a cross from our young 17year old No2 (??) who had a good game.

 2 - 2 at halftime.

Mass changes for the 2nd half with Marriott, Henderson, Jarvis, McAuley, Jones and others coming on. We used both wide players to good effect and our No4 made some good attack link ups with Hendo and McAuley (who was giving instructions, encouragement and praise - lovely to see and hear! - to No4 (???).

It went a bit flat for periods as the "new" team settled in but Lynn continued to build attacks and the defence line was better maintained by Rory McAuley et al.

Charleton were organised and slick but we tackled well. A great cross from the left was met by Aaron Jones bullet of a header and Lynn were 3 - 1 up.

The gears were moved up by Charleton and attacks came thick and fast. Michael Gash missed a sitter going just wide of post. A couple of "Handbags" occurred but overall Ref handled the game well. Finally Charlie Congreve (Pedro subbed about 20mins into 2nd half) was beaten by a tight angle bullet shot from 10yards on the left.

Final Score 3 - 3 - A fair result and a good work out for both teams.

« on: July 28, 2019, 01:46:44 PM »
With some great players in the Squad for this season I can see at least 2 x Out on Loan. (Harry Limb and Nathan Stewart again?)

Nearly all the positions are up for grabs with 2 or more players vying for each slot.

Back 4 from Fryatt, McAuley, Smith, Fox, Barrows, Carey and Jones.

Midfield from Clunan, Jarvis, Jones (again), Henderson, Kelly, Richards, Hawkins.

Strikers from Gash, Marriott, Hawkins (again), Henderson (again), Richards (again).

Spoilt for choice but my Dream Team to start:

Jones (Wingback), Fryatt, Smith, McAuley, Fox (Wingback)
Clunan, Henderson, Kelly
Gash, Marriott

Subs: Hawkins, Barrows, Richards, Carey, Jarvis

Carey in defence??!!  :laughcry:
