To bč fair Blue Moon, those comments were made before an excellent Away Win. IMO those penalties were pretty soft decisions and Maidenhead did not really threaten apart from some long range shots, one of which Pedro did well to save.

Adam Marriott was very unlucky to chip the goalie but be denied by the bar. My Mom was Aaron Jones again. Not sure who got it though.

Lads will be buzzing after that win and sitting 5th.

Having seen Mazza's goal the cross from Jones was slightly back not forward so not offside.

The coverage was pretty good and I enjoyed the game sat at home. Several Replays from different angles.

General Discussion / Re: home vs Yeovil (3rd Oct)
« on: October 04, 2020, 01:23:30 PM »
Yeovil played it tactically 1st half by sitting back deep and soaking up Lynn's attacking style. Came out 2nd half with an attacking attitude that caught us on the hop as they had not really mounted a formal attack phase (relying on breakouts 1st half).

Fortunately the Lads were not rattled by the first goal and worked steadily to get back into the game. Got 1 back then could not really do anything about Yeovil's thunderbolt for their 2nd. Couple of changes made a lot of difference and we chased for and got our 2nd to gain a point. Happy with the result and the experience will do us good.

I think Yeovil had done their homework and realised that we are an attacking team that can be caught out by the breakout counter-attacks. We are weak at defence in depth, especially on the counter-attacks with Jones and Brown forward on their wing attacking.

We need a solid back three even when we are playing during our corners - don't have all the eggs (players) in the penalty box (basket) getting in each others way. Whoever is left back in defence (Rory usually goes up for corners) needs to be able to tackle (like Quigs) and some, no names, are not really tacklers.

I would like to see Ross Barrows (please, not Burrows) in place of Chris Smith who does not seem too comfortable with the ball.

 :watching:
Looks like the noises coming out of various NL clubs is that the season will start on Saturday, whether that is with government and/or Premier League support remains unanswered but would imagine we are in a pretty similar position to Wealdstone who have put together a pretty well worded board update here https://www.wealdstone-fc.com/post/board-update-sept-2020

Having read the Wealdstone FC Update it is very interesting what they say about Season Tickets:

"Season Tickets: Clearly the current situation impacts our season ticket holders and creates a further challenge especially as there remains much uncertainty over when spectators can return and in what numbers.

Simply refunding season ticket monies in full is considered inappropriate given the lack of clarity on spectators at future matches and would have a serious impact on the clubs viability.

We would like to offer all season ticket holders a free streaming pass for each home league match played behind closed doors.
Where we already have your email address you will be e-mailed with an access code directly, however all enquiries relating to season tickets and streaming passes should be directed to seasontickets@wealdstonefc.com."

Please note Stephen Cleeve that it is possible to give Season Ticket Holders "Free Access" to Streaming. I look forward to some such offer very soon.

Shock or What  :dontknow:

However, these things happen and I am sure everybody will wish Hendo well for the future. Chris brought us so much dynamics in the Midfield and as a Striker when circumstances dictated. He never knew the words "Give Up" and was a Terrier whenever the ball was near him.

Farewell Chris Henderson and fare thee well.  :worship: :worship:  :comeon: :comeon:

Why not stream it into the bars,charge people to get in making sure they adhere to social distancing rules? This means beer can be sold too and maybe food ? :dontknow:

Are you suggesting that fans can gather in the Bars at the Walks to watch the game, being played out on the Pitch, on TV  :dontknow:

Exactly Mall and more to the point he is MP for NW Norfolk, so why is he even mentioning Norwich....he should have highlighted the plight of Lynn and other local non league clubs in NW Norfolk

KES80, as for your ".... he should have highlighted the plight of Lynn and other local non league clubs in NW Norfolk" here is an extract from the Lynn News article (Posted by Kevin Holland):

"At Prime Minister's Questions yesterday, James Wild, MP for North West Norfolk, urged the Prime Minister to look urgently at a Sport Recovery Fund following the recent announcement that the re-opening of large scale sport events fromOctober 2 has been postponed.

Mr Wild, who was at the Norwich City vs Preston Championship match that was part of the pilot events on Saturday, said: "This threatens the viability of King's Lynn Town FC, as well as other clubs and sports that rely on income from gate receipts and matchday spending by fans. Clubs need support to ensure their future at the heart of our local communities."

The Prime Minister assured Mr Wild that the Secretary of State for Culture, Media, and Sport is actively looking at solutions for clubs and sports."

I suggest that James Wild MP DID highlight the plight of KLTFC, other Clubs and other Sports.

Thought we lacked any real intensity in the game.  Maybe that will come once the serious stuff starts.

Certainly our ball retention was decent.  Cried out for Cameron King to pick passes out and drive us  forward with intent.

CK out injured with knee, hopeful Marriott back next week, IC looking at different combo's.

Good to see Michael Clunan back as good as ever and Ryan Jarvis played well. We were more assured when Henderson and Kelly came on and Richards went after everything and does not give up. Certainly missed Gashy up front.

It was a useful workout for team bonding but it has not clicked yet. Maybe trying some different combinations will see some better understanding.

Good news for some season ticket holders is they have managed to attend one game already.

Which game was that Mallard?

WLM.  Not my words.   The Chairman said on a podcast there would be no season ticket refunds as this would bankrupt the Club.  Reading about Macclesfield and Southend today should that ring alarm bells ?

I suggest people read these:

https://www.gov.uk/accepting-returns-and-giving-refunds :

https://thefsa.org.uk/news/premier-league-clubs-begin-refund-process-with-one-exception/

(There is a line in the 2nd article that state "it is important to remember, however, the default legal position is that if you’ve paid for a game that won’t admit spectators then you are entitled to a full refund."

Sorry B&G but horse poo! The club has sold season tickets in the hope of the season starting (no refunds remember). So why can't tickets for the opening game not go on sale?  Surely both have the hope and criteria?  Only difference is you should get ya money back if Yeovil doesn’t go ahead.

If and its  a IF, the Season does not start then anyone who has bought a Season Ticket will be able to claim back their money regardless of Terms and Conditions saying  "No Refunds".

The Ombudsmen would declare that the expected service / product has not been delivered and therefore a full refund would be ordered. There may be a Section 75 draw back if purchased via a Credit Card.
