General Discussion / Manager has definitely lost the plot
« on: January 27, 2024, 11:13:39 PM »
Following Tuesday nights match I thought the Manager may have lost the plot - not because of the result but because  of the total apparent lack of any cohesion in the team.After today I know he has the plot big time. Following JBís departure we were left with just two playmakers in the squad, Hughes and Rogers. Today I was astonished when the teams were read out and neither were in the starting eleven. Both sitting on the bench at a time when we need playmakers to create the chances.
Having let that sink in I then thought the announcer must have got it wrong when Margret was announced as being among the substitutes. What were the loyal Lynn fans to think? The pitifully low crowd from Tuesdayís game could be forgiven for thinking maybe our Star goal - a - game striker was just a victim of getting no supply from his Hoof it! Headless chicken team mates and they would see the real thing today?.Not a bit of it, he was well and truly benched for not being a Hoofit! Player. So the wages saved from flogging Crowther are then spent on a goal a game striker (because we need goals) who sits on the bench to watch a goal less draw - you couldnít make this up.
On my way home it suddenly dawned on me! Although most right thinking Lynn fans would expect us to go for 3 points today and play our Star studded new striker, our manager probably  was thinking itís self preservation time - I canít afford to lose this match, so we will go defensive and thatís why we were again treated to watching paint dry football. We already knew our great leader had lost the plot but now his manager has too. By the way, the plot is to score goals in order to collect enough points to finish higher than 4th from bottom. In order to achieve this simple aim (made to sound difficult by coaches) we need at least one playmaker and a goal scorer. I wonder who the may be?

Keep the faith - COYHeadless chickens!

One thing I will agree with you on Pink is how much we miss Crowther. Average age of the three central defenders is 33 and it shows. This put together with the age of Margret, Hargreavesís Jones aand Stephens makes for quite an experienced team so why was he bemoaning the fact that he needs experienced players?
Personally I think he has lost the plot and the pressure is showing in his interviews. He can though have no excuse for the way we are playing. He is with them full time on a daily basis, yet we show no routines at free kicks and struggle to put more than two passes together. Keep the faith, coyheadless chickens

General Discussion / Hughes next to go?

Tommy played well at Hereford, ďputting in a shift ď whilst also scoring a vital goal. His reward? A place on the bench whist the headless chickens chased around like characters from a Monty Python sketch.

If Hughes is not good enough to come off the bench in a 4 nil drubbing he is yet another skilful playmaker surplus to requirements.

Come on you headless chickens, Keep the faith!

I think we will all have to get used to that.It sometime feels that Lynn want to be a club that prides itself in distancing itself from its customers.That's unless they need the begging bowl to be handed around or some buffoon is blowing his own trumpet.
Well a 2-2 draw away to a team in the play off positions is't bad
And a 0 - 4 loss at home to a team who werenít in a play off position?

Widdrington can manage skilful players. Lakeland can manage gut busting runners. Whose results do you prefer?

Youíd get good odds on Gloucester winning at Banbury Squire

Gloucesters away record reads W0 D5 L9 - miracle required!

Banbury played good football at the Walks in their win. Both our ex- players had good games Fleming defended well and young Charles scored a good free kick.

22 points required to stay up. Only one win in last ten matches, Two wins required next two matches at the walks? No problem with  Margetts in the team? Itís Alex Ferguson time! coyl.

Absolutely spot on Dazza, clearly SCís idea of of keeping us fans informed is the mushroom theory, keep Ďm in the dark and sh-t on them from time to time? Couldnít get to the game today but our midfield sounds as if itís getting over run. Morrison, our runner in chief and managers pet hasnít been mentioned as yet. Devonport clearly isnít up to NLN standard and Margetts hasnít received a pass so far.
Time for the manager to earn his corn - what do the do all week? Full time players and the manager keeps saying theyíve had a good week. Iíve heard they use dustbins instead of cones in training but the dustbins usually win.

Margetts could be the player to keep us up - super signing coyl.

The discarding of skilful players is becoming a trend with AL. This is worrying because without playmakers we will be
relegated. Nice to praise the 100% runners but look how many points weíve dropped with a team full of runners and
no playmakers. Could it be that the differences between AL and JB will ultimately get us relegated? Surely not? :banghead;
Stop acting like kids and sort it out like grown men. Time to put the team first!
Whilst I wouldn't disagree with your questioning of AL's treatment of 'skilful' players at times, I am not sure bringing JB into the debate is fair as you could equally argue that MH and AL (when he first arrived) were both guilty of giving JB too much game time in the hope that our most talented player would produce some moment of magic to inspire a struggling team, a gamble that didn't often pay off.

Personally I liked the midfield trio of Rogers, Hargreaves and Hughes selected for Buxton and would like to see AL stick with that for a few games to see if that can inspire us to play a bit more football and if we can manage to keep 11 on the pitch maybe pick up a few more points.

So taking JB out of the equation, that leaves just the two playmakers, Rogers and Hughes. The point I am making is that at the first signs of us looking under pressure AL takes off playmakers, whoever they may be and goes negative, therefore encouraging the opposition to push further forward. We drop further back and with having no out-ball it becomes their attack against our defence.
Looking at the league table I canít see where the necessary 23 points are coming from to keep us in this league?
