General Discussion / Oooh so quiet !
« on: June 02, 2023, 01:18:24 PM »
Is perhaps the social media guy on holiday ? Or was there just nothing to comment on at the club since May 25th ?

Seems to me that none of those offered a new contract have accepted straight away otherwise we would have heard something………or would we  :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

Oh well, I ‘ll just forget about the club for a few weeks and maybe show some interest then…….maybe

Shame that what started out as such a positive thread  doesn’t end that way and descends into finger pointing and apportioning blame.

Changes are required in the club’s outlook and way of going about things………and IMO changes required in the approach of some fans too ,in order  for the club to move forwards and be successful. Being constantly tapped into a negative vibe isn’t useful or healthy….what’s gone is gone……..

Should be an interesting fortnight coming up. Most teams resume training early July and some players/managers usually take their holidays just before that, so lots to be resolved over the next 14 days or so. Let’s hope for some positive outcomes.

Just as well we didn’t get promotion! Just wouldn’t be able to compete and would be back down again sharpish.

Insufficient budget available for NL and probably only 4/5 of squad genuinely good enough for NL.

Personally, very comfortable with a reset, so long as work begins behind the suspense to grow the club.

I’m liking what Pink has to say in his post.  A lot of sense being talked there. Reminds very much of someone who use to post on here.  If that is the case then welcome back.

I’d love to see SC cut the bullcrap and just tell it like it is.   Would like to see a full
X point plan put in place to drive the club forward over say the next 3/4/5 years.

1.  Other partners brought onboard in support of the owner.

2.  A fully integrated commercial department formed and properly headed up by someone who actually knows what they are doing.  Very like the guy we had but who left through Ill health.  Someone who is allowed to get on with the job without any interference.

3.  A big Olive branch handed out to the Trust and for SC to ask them to get involved in supporting the club.

4.  A fully functional Supporters Club again there to raise funds and support the Club. ( has the issue with old SC funds finally been sorted?)

5.  A club that works in harmony with the its fans getting a big message out there loud and clear.  One where the fans feel totally included and are proud to follow their local club.

Anyone else want to add to this wish list?

That reads very much as the type of thing most of us would really hope to see from a major reset………….I suspect point one might be the catalyst for the rest to happen and a statement of aims to be produced.

Really good post that, as I am sure this Forum is reviewed on a fairly regular basis by club connections.

(Just as an aside, cover blown after less than 40 posts  :laughcry:….)

I’m starting to fear for us next season. Just missing out this year provides no guarantees for 2023-2024. Already key players have departed and I’m guessing more will go. Will we get quality replacements?  I have my doubts currently. MH is, I suspect, on a learning curve. That’s fair enough and understandable but does he have the right sort of contacts to pull in players we need?  My worry is that we will not be fighting for a play-off place next season but actually will be trying to avoid relegation. I sincerely hope I’m wrong…but things, to me, seem to more in that direction. I’m usually optimistic but nothing, to date, gives me hope. Someone tell me I’m wrong!!

I think Scunthorpe coming down  and Aldershot possibly picking off a few, could be doing us a big favour, in effect meaning we have to reset and recruit a new squad. It emphasises where we need to be financially, to even consider going up. We are a fair way off what is required, so a few seasons mid table or just creeping into the play off picture, might be just what is needed, whilst time is used to build other revenue streams up. The difficulty may be getting the fan base to buy into it….given many seem to be big match Harry’s.

So Denton last week, Clunan this week.  I wonder who Jimmy will be snaffling away next week ? 

With Clunan  living in Lynn will he be travelling up to Scunny on a daily basis, or stopping over in digs ?  Whichever way a hellva a commitment with a new baby on the way

Maybe there is someone else who will be travelling the same way that he can share the driving with (?)

Would have thought Scunthorpe might be a model to try to follow, given they are so much bigger than Lynn. Sure they have past EFL history, but it’s not that big a town and it’s not located that favourably…..certain similarities there… where do they generate their bucks from….(apart from their 3k attendances).

Attendance of 3k would be enough to compete. I think the Chairman would be content with that.

Yes but as we both know that won’t happen anytime soon… where do they get the rest of their dosh from

Sadly this is what can happen when you have a side that’s full of good quality players and you don’t get your promotion and you can’t compete financially with bigger fish. Just got to get the commercial and supporters side sorted in order to be able to compete on more level terms, with the bigger sides in NLN and the NL.

This is exactly the type of thing that needs addressing NOW. It’s no good bleating on about poor attendances and lack of interest once the season kicks off or even at upcoming friendlies ……it’s a two way street. Discussions may be protracted and ongoing , but at least keep supporters in the loop as much as possible………there should be at least one post on the Twitter account per day with an update….how difficult is that to organise ? Already gives the impression that nothing is going to change….when loads needs to. On many levels I am very appreciative of what SC has done for the club, but building the club from a spectator and commercial aspect surely has to happen now, if the club has serious aspirations of going anywhere.

What chance a merger in the future to form KIng’s Lynn and Peterborough Sports FC ? Apply for grant funding for a Community Sports Centre, to include the football ground, approx 10 miles west of Lynn ?

Thanks Sam.

Very quiet on the Lynn twitter feed….would be nice to be updated there.

As long as they don’t move the goalposts halfway through a season, it’s fine. Same rules apply to all.
Just because some don’t approve it doesn’t make it wrong or unacceptable either.

You’re welcome to your view of “it’s fine” but it’s just your view….and I am entitled to mine that it’s very definitely not……and I guess there will be those that support both stances…… my mind just because a rule is there, doesn’t change and is the same for all doesn’t mean that is ok. Questioning rules is healthy sometimes.
It's not "just my view" as you state. It's other people's as well. Nobody questioned that you were entitled to an opinion. Of course you are. Everyone can have an opinion, even Sovereign Citizens.
Some think its right, some think its wrong, some think its acceptable, some think it's unacceptable.

Sovereign Citizens can as you say have an opinion, but being a U.S. derived term, it’s unlikely they would be interested in little old Lynn……..Wrexham maybe !
