General Discussion / Re: Tennyson car park

I wonder how much the council value the land The Walks is on? Prime real estate where houses could be worth a small fortune. Park views, walking distance of train station that's straight into London. Developers dream.

Ideal for me if money was there to do a good stadium with council backing after selling the stadium land, locate it Greenyard Way, where the road infrastructure is already there. If logistically possible, have the main stand moved over from existing ground, have two terraced ends, and a brand new main stand that has top hospitality facilities. Giving size of land, can even build a few houses on there to recoup some of the money for the council (or go commercial to bring in jobs/investment to Lynn). There's also already a foot bridge going over the trainline so you can walk to the ground from Gaywood area (plus in future big games, links with the schools can see parking used at their places with a small fee going to them so the car network is distributed more away from the actual ground).

Logistically ideal, just unsure if council have that area/land earmarked for housing development. Fylde I always see as the template for new stadiums in the top level of non league if you want to go the full works.

An idea that has been around for a number of years, in one form or another.

A great chance to build something for the club and the local community. Sooner or later something serious is going to have to happen with the Walks, irrespective of the level the club plays at.

As long as a new stadium doesn't have a bloody running track between the supporters and pitch.

With regards to cost, could it even be self funding? Selling an attractive piece of real estate and using the money to buy and develope agricultural land sounds good.

Saddlebow as a location?

Stick it on the Speedway Arena land  :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

I appreciate that everyone is doing their best but today's stream left something to be desired.
No sound until a while after the minute's applause and the late arrival of the "commentary" team after half time.
One goal we didn't even see properly.
The "commentary" more off topic than on and certainly of little interest to opposition fans,
Aldershot showed how it could be done on Tuesday but I guess it is a matter of people volunteering and having the time and skills to do it.

I was disappointed with the Stream yesterday. Flitting between cameras and zooming in to the player with the ball when we really needed to see the bigger picture of where other players were. Focus on action on far side was often blurred and, due to trying too close up shots, the cameras were jinking side to side trying to keep the ball in shot. A wider view would allow a smoother flow.

I do of course realise that the camera operators are not full time professionals - please accept my remarks and observations as constructive criticism.

At one point at the start of the 2nd half I thought someone was banging on the walls of the ground - but no, it was the Discussion Team (aka: the Commentary Team) returning late and charging up the stairs to their vantage point like a herd of elephants.

I have to agree with Nemesis that "A Little Less Conversation, a Little More Action Please" would not come amiss, albeit some snippets and updates from behind the scenes is welcome.

We looked good on the ball going forward but Halifax found it way to easy to get onto our back line.   Hopefully people will appreciate what the likes of Ryan Jarvis brings to the party.

For IC since it was confirmed there was no relegation, then he is on a free hit and a fact finding mission from then to the end of season.  This period will give him a massive insight into what is required at this level.  A coach with his experience and knowledge will take it all in and use it all to his advantage come the start of next season.

Think we will see big changes during the summer and will have a team that will be able to compete at this level.

Every game is a Scouting opportunity to make notes on players who may become available as teams chop and change on Promotion and Relegation (from EFL 2).

With all due respect to the players concerned we are playing with a cobbled together team and still performing well against full-time teams. Results are not getting points but are getting experience into players which is no bad thing.  :scarf:

General Discussion / Clubs in Crisis Article in Daily Mail
« on: March 01, 2021, 07:14:44 AM »
Stephen Cleeve mentioned that a reporter from the Daily Mail was at The Walks for the King's Lynn v Weymouth game and an article on the Crisis of playing on would be in Monday's DM. Not much new apart from a possibility of still playing Notts County on Tuesday.

Pandemic has put us in this position nothing else , but then again when you got a supporters trust with supporters money not helping club they should hang their heads with shame , itís common knowledge that those at the helm of the trust only have on interest and thatís gaining control of the club , they are not supporters only leeches


Anyone got any inside information on who is injured etc. amongst the Team?

Is it just fitness that stops player's availability or could it be that "time off work" causes us selection problems, especially midweek.

I am thinking mainly of Ross Barrows who really should at least be on the bench. Aaron Jones has reclaimed his RB position but I feel that Barrows deserves to be in the Team.

Let's see what Tuesday evening brings Away at Chesterfield,

General Discussion / Re: Eastleigh away. Tues night
« on: January 20, 2021, 09:16:24 AM »
Very difficult playing conditions at Eastleigh (wind, rain and slippery ground) caused problems for both teams (obviously). The "dubious" penalty and resulting scoreline was the difference between the two teams at the end of a scrappy game. Winning Ugly and a welcome 3points. I think Alex Kiwomya's body was in the area when he was fouled with contact point outside.  :dontknow:

Aaron Jones was lucky to still be on the pitch at the end and could easily seen a 2nd  :yellow card: but methinks the Ref took into account conditions and gave Aaron a "final verbal warning" when he could have given  :yellow card: :yellow card: :red card: late on.

Michael Gash was again immense up front and back in defence at corners. The defence is so much stronger now with Kyle Callum-McFadden in control. Archie Mair is doing a great job now he has a defence he can rely on.

Adam Marriott is, I think, short on game time. But is he not fully recovered  :dontknow: Nice to see him start rather than warm the bench for 60-70minutes. Was Ryan Jarvis playing further up Midfield  :dontknow:

All in all the team deserved the 3points on a 4hour+, each-way, trip on a filthy night mid-week.

By the way, Referee was pretty good - well done Sir.

That was what Stephen Cleeve said on the live commentary. Will be out for the Altrincham game as well.

Did he actually say it was Covid?

Yes, quite clearly stated Aaron Jones out with COVID.

I am afraid you cannot govern people who delibrately go out of their way to break the rules. Look at the number of  fines issued last night.

Should spray them with dye and that would identify them as COVIDIOTS so people can avoid them.

Unfortunately the Government seems to have gone out of their way to avoid Naming and Shaming them and referring to them as "the significant minority who cannot follow the rules".
