I had a look at Car Parking from previous "Threads" and found this:

March 06, 2018, 09:14:17 PM Ľ

Ah Ha, it all becomes clear now - It's the St JAMES Car park in Extons Road (Old Hospital).

From 9 Feb King's Lynn Facebook page:

Just to inform you that the front car parks at St James are going to be re-surfaced from next week. The work has been split into two phases, so that one of the car parks will be available throughout the works.

The first phase will see the first car park closed off, so parking will only be available in the second car park. This is expected to be completed by the end of February and from the beginning of March work will start on the second car park, completing by the end of March.

There are a sufficient number of spaces in each car park to cater for the number of permits you have sold (22), so there should, hopefully, be no issues for your supporters.

Iíd be grateful if you could please pass this information on to all of the supporters who have purchased permits to park at St James.

Hope this helps.

Big and physical team, not downright dirty but crafty. Gash was being climbed on, going for the high ball, by his marker. Chester No10 was at the centre of quite a lot of the fouls. No7 was a handful on the right wing and Nathan Fox had his work cut out but did OK most of the time (can't win 'em all). Pedro commanded his area and I cannot remember any header of note by Chester forwards towards goal.

Our first goal proves that forwards need to put goalie's under pressure on 50/50 balls. Goalie mi**** his attempted clearance which fell to Adam Marriott who surged forward and took his shot calmly into the net. 66seconds and Chester rattled and their fans shocked into silence.

The game ebbed and flowed, end to end, but no real chances for either side in the rest of the 1st Half.

Where Chester's first goal came from I am not sure - it was not looking dangerous and then ... 1 - 1.

Chester's 2nd came from No7 crossing into the box and ball arrived on the far side of the penalty area and was beautifully taken by Ashante who smashed it past Pedro who had no chance. 2 - 1.

Chester appeared to sit back a little and try to hold their lead - Lynn attacked and Adam Marriott took the ball on his chest, pivoted and smashed home on the turn. Even the Chester report on Twitter link said it was a well taken goal. 2 - 2.

Both teams spent the rest of the game attacking the other goal looking for a winner, neither side willing to settle for a draw.

Both Lino's did a good job but the Referee made some awful and questionable decisions and lost control. Two penalty shouts were waved away, obvious fouls ignored and some decisions given "the other way" when it was blatantly obvious to anyone that it should have been in our favour. That aspect of the match spoilt an otherwise hard fought and well contested game. All in all a fair result where the points were shared. Either team could have won the game.

Lynn v Chester were mentioned on ITV Anglia News last night when they slipped in a non-League snippet.

Just seen in the local Chester newspaper ( The Standard)

They face a Kingís Lynn side who boast an impeccable home record and are unbeaten at The Walks since September 1, 2018.

Linnets boss Ian Culverhouse, who was among the candidates interviewed for the Wrexham managerial vacancy, has overseen seven victories from 12 league fixtures to date.

Is IC looking to move on ?

I'm sure that many Clubs will be very interested in him. If he is interested or not in these other Clubs is an entirely different matter.   :dontknow:

Dean Keates has been appointed at Wrexham, so we are still ok at the moment.

Apparently 5 applicant were interviewed according to Wrexham website. Dean Keates was selected. No mention of who the other 4 were.

Or Mike how about getting the players in wide positions to deliver more accurately into the 2nd 6 yard box areas ?

I watched Chester early doors in the season. Big team, quite direct and scrap for everything in the middle Of the park.  Think thatís the battle we have to win.

The crossed ball arriving into the box very often gets headed, punched or partially cleared to far side where ...... no one is waiting!

If Chester are allowed to dominate the midfield then defend in depth and attack over the top.

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.

Leek will be like Terriers and won't give up. We will have to be clinical and take our chances, not squander them.

A 4-1 win, a good Home game for the next Round and then ....... AFC Bournemouth at Home or Away!
Bournemouth won't come in until round 3 Mike.

We will still be in it then Stan.  :cup2:

IC might well tinker with things as the season progresses but canít see him changing his MO on the way he wants to his team to play.
 Iím loving the way we play, breath of fresh air. For sure we can improve, that may come with different bodies coming in and IC improving what we have.

Agreed Mallard, we play some very attractive and entertaining football and don't sit back and wait for the other team to take the initiative. Attack is the best form of Defence.

Bonus is Rory McAuley serving his 3rd Match Suspension so will be OK for York.

I am going all out and expect a 4-0 win with Attendance of 945.

Start with an All Out Attack and then sub a few for York on Saturday.

Income from all league games, FA Cup runs, FA Trophy (?), League Cup and Friendlies combined with profits from various enterprises (refreshments, 50/50, programmes etc.) comes to ......... X.

We can never be sure what X will be, until the last game of the season and stock-check is done. We will now have Y.

How close to the expected X is Y?

Lots of factors and variables will affect X or Y. Good Gates, Bad Gates, Good Cup runs, Bad Cup Runs, Grissles in the Bar, Grissles not in the Bar  :laughcry:

I think IC may opt for a back 3 even without Ross being absent - Alfreton's front two caused problems in the home fixture and we did swap in the 2nd half albeit briefly as we then went down to 10 men.  As well as strengthening the midfield hopefully it should give a few more options as I thought we didn't move the ball quickly enough at the weekend vs Gloucester.  So my team would be:

Fryatt, Jones, Smith
Clunan, Carey, Jarvis, Kelly, Fox
Marriott, Gash

Happy that you could bring in Burrows if Clunan or Jarvis needed a rest and possibly Payne for Fox.  Still think letting Toby go to Dereham was a mistake as there isn't much option up front, not that he is in anyway a like for like replacement for Gash (particularly in the form he is in) but he would be a more viable option than anything else we have in the squad.

I would go for a 4 - 4 - 2 dropping Fox or Jarvis back to allow either Fox or Jones to venture forward as the situation allows. Keeping Barrows and Henderson as prime subs makes sense. Also got Richards, Stewart and Payne staying fresh for York.

As Posted on another Thread:

Defence:  Rory McAuley 1 x Red + 2 x Yellows  - Ryan Fryatt 1 x Y - Nathan Fox 1 x Y  - Jones 2 x Y

Midfield:  Michael Clunan 2 x Y -  Sam Kelly 1 x Y - Chris Henderson 1 x Y

Strikers:  Michael Gash 2 x Y - Adam Marriott 1 x Y

We could do with "protecting" Jones, Clunan and Gash from FA Cup Yellows/Reds and keep them fresh and available for League Games.
