General Discussion / Buxton win at Chester
« on: January 16, 2024, 11:09:25 PM »
Buxtonís win at Chester tonight shows how disastrous our dropping of two points was at the Silverlands last Saturday.

Stephens had no need to make that tackle, giving AL a tactical headache at half time.

The Linnets outstanding player in the first half was Rogers, easily the most creative player on the field.

So what does AL do? Takes Rogers off and Buxtonís manager canít believe his luck. Into the second half and we take

Hughes off ,leaving no creative playmakers on the pitch. Predictably we surrender mid field and it's like the battle of

the Alamo. Two goals conceded and almost a third in the last minute.

We will be relegated if we donít keep skilful playmakers on the pitch and we still desperately need a striker.

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!

General Discussion / Re: New investor brings new signing
« on: January 12, 2024, 10:37:41 AM »
More good news, just need a proven goal scorer now. Good to see posts about the new signing....apathy reigns surpreme.
Two sides to life Nigel, Negative and Positive, the positive is Taylor is an experienced defender with a decent track record.
The negative is we already have two experienced central defenders who are not the quickest and Taylor is 33yrs old, lacking match practise and will probably need at least 4 or 5 games to get match fit.
Letís hope he is super fit and settles in quickly
Maybe the apathy is due to the fact many supporters have lost faith in the management, following too many defeats and failing to sign a striker.

Well whether you like or dislike SC he has certainly pumped a lot of his own money into the club and let's rejoice that hopefully this new investment draws a line under the current financial issues and now all his, ours and your energy can get behind the manager and team to make sure relegation is avoided.
And how do you know if the Chairman has pumped in lots of his own money? How much has he put in? Is it all Directorís loans? Have you seen the books?How much is this new Investor investing? Despite all the great words none of us can know  - or maybe you do and you will enlighten the rest of us faithful fans? How much of the Lynn News article/ EDP article is fact?
Why would he sell Adam Crowther so cheaply when we need good players to avoid relegation? Why not get his replacement first, then sell him? If we have such a windfall of money why do we need a pitiful £35k so quickly? Why does AL not know if he can get a replacement? (See todays EDP)          KEEP THE FAITH

General Discussion / Fire Sale - Something isn't right !
« on: January 08, 2024, 08:22:32 PM »
If the future of the club is secured, why in god's name have we sold the best young defender we have had in years!

Adam Crowther's transfer value (even at non league level) was MUCH more than £35,000. THIS WAS A FIRE SALE PRICE BY A WORRIED MAN.

Where are we going to find another class defender at NLN standard anywhere near as good?

Just sell Barrett now and Mr Cleeve could have the distinction of being the first Chairman to take a full time professional club down to the Northern /Southern Premier League

AL has clearly worked very hard since becoming our new manager. We are being treated to a brand of football never before seen at the Walks. Grown men (and boys) running around at break neck

speed, firstly booting the ball into the air, then running after it, trying to get it back again, when they're successful they boot it in the air again and chase it again. Repeat, repeat repeat, repeat for

an entire match. This brand of football does require players who will give 100% for 95 minutes behaving like headless chickens. Unfortunately there is no room for skilful players like Barrett and

Hughes in these teams, who may not run around huffing and puffing to impress the management duo but who will put their foot on the ball and play an occasional defence splitting pass for a team

mate to run on to and score, sometimes more than once in one match. Many supporters can't understand why our full time team are no fitter after ninety minutes than part timers. Darlington

didn't run around like a bunch of kids and had a skilful player to play the through ball and a striker who finished like Marriot used to do.

It's a dour brand of football and attendances will fall accordingly. By the way was anyone impressed with the two new chickens making their debut? I think we have better in the award winning

Academy, but they won't be considered as thy play good football on the floor.

Moderator and Jesus Linnet - Are we still laughing about raising money for the B&G Trust?

General Discussion / Blue and Gold Supporters' Trust
« on: January 04, 2024, 08:54:16 PM »
Could someone please enlighten me on where the Trust stands in all this?

Are they raising money to bolster their coffers in the very likely event of the town needing to start yet another reincarnation? Would a recruitment drive for new members be in order?

500 new members donating £50 apiece would bring in £25000 to get things started - I for one would be up for it. Having given hard-earned cash to the club at every begging bowl request I am no longer prepared to do so until the owner shuts the door behind him and hands the keys of our beautiful non-league ground back to the Council. Peter has cried wolf too many times. A donation now to the B&G Trust will help for the future of a more United club - Kings Lynn United? A donation to the current regime will just serve to prolong the agony.

General Discussion / LYNNPLAY COVERAGE?
« on: November 22, 2023, 08:58:30 PM »
So no interview from our fulltime management team after Scarborough debacle? We might get the goal highlights (or lowlights) from Scarborough eventually but not from Lynn - because we lost.

The club may be full time but it seems less than professionally run at the moment.

No comments on here about how we played at Scarborough, I've never known such a mood of general malaise across the club, including supporters.

Make that 2 more goals from the right full back position. It's now embarrassing. We beat full time Scunny and then lose to two very ordinary semi pro teams. Time to dig deep and borrow some more wonga. :nilpoints:

General Discussion / Poor defending
« on: November 21, 2023, 08:45:43 PM »
Yet another goal conceded from poor defending in the right back position. Either we don't have another right footed defender in the club or AL doesn't see it. Stephens and Smith have gone missing
for long periods again. Lets hope our full time players show stronger fitness second half.

Hi folks
Couldn't agree more with Pinks comments.
After the superb victory over sunny Scunny I asked Nick Bowler and his asst why no live coverage? They did indeed say the cutbacks were to blame and coverage switched to a regional model after six pm. So I asked how Canaries fans felt about that? They replied, no problem, the Canaries are wall to wall coverage no matter what time of day or night. So no regional problems then?
I believe RN used to pay for coverage of City. Does anyone know if that's still the case?
