An excellent win tonight and a very good second half performance. The first half was poor with a load of hoof ball but once Gash scored it seemed to give Lynn a lot of confidence. A goal made by Hawkins and he went on to score two really good goals and hit the post. Royston seemed to implode after the first goal and were pretty physical but not very skilful.
So three points clear at the top and quite a lot of daylight appearing between the top five and the rest of the league. Another clear Saturday after the Basingstoke game and a long trip for Hereford on what will probably be a cold winter's Tuesday night in January.
Hawkins was rightly m.o.m. Gash also a contender with Lappin and Clunan. The whole team had a good second half.

I felt so sorry for Stephen Cleeve last evening. Top of The League 4-0 home win with a comprehensive 2nd half display. What does he get in return? 500 people.  Leaves more questions than answers.

Id imagine the dip in the crowd has more to do with England-Brazil, than the Chairman.

Norwich at home, big games on sky/bt sports, it always has, and always will, affect the crowd attendance for a minority :dontknow: having said that what a second half display from the lads :clap: :clap:

Lough, sure it's nothing to do with the Chairman,  Just asking what has the guy got to do to get the support he needs and deserves ?  He can't be expected to bankroll it indefinitely.

Following on line it seems it was a great second half performance by all the players.
That's 2 wins and 6 points since Holt left, that says it all normal service resumed.
Can someone who was at the match tell me what formation we are now using as looking at the list of players it is unclear.

Averaging 770 at home and haven't played any of the big guns at home and didn't have a Cup run of note , so overall pretty healthy for Step 3...only Hereford have better. 500 mid week is a little disappointing, but its midweek, leading up to Christmas and for many money is tight. So often in the past, a cup run has ignited crowd interest and run over into league attendances.....

Much more confident performance once the first goal went in as we stopped playing the longer ball and started to pass the ball.  As for formation, 3 at the back (Gaughran left, Fryatt right and Ward in the middle), Norman and Lappin as wingbacks although not entirely convinced that Lappin is a better option than Blake-Tracey in this role on the left and wants to get rid of the ball too quickly for me, often crossing from well outside the penalty box when he has space to move into to produce a more dangerous angle.  Jarvis and Clunan 'sitting' in midfield although Clunan always looking to get forward when the opportunity arose (Jarvis too in the latter stages once the subs were on and the formation / personnel changed).  Front 3 of Gash, Parker and Hawkins didn't really work first half with Parker often playing as a 2nd striker, Gash often finding himself too wide in an effort to get into the game and Hawkins sticking primarily to the left hand side.  Second half Hawkins moved more central (just behind Gash) and caused far more problems both running at Royston and in some good interplay with Gash (for his goal) and Parker.

Still think the new system needs to 'bed in' and possibly one or two personnel changes to really make it work but can't argue with 6 points from 2 games since we adopted it, just wish the management, players and fans would trust the players to 'play' a bit more as we have far more talent in the squad than was shown in the first half last night when yet again we looked to bypass the midfield with, it has to be said, very little success.

Don't see there is any need to feel sorry for SC, any sensible person would have told you before the start of the season that 500+ is a decent midweek attendance at the Walks and so that should be roughly where the budget should be set.  Crowds are a bit like trust (excuse the pun) hard won but easily lost and there are still a lot of people who walked away at the old clubs demise who have found alternative Saturday afternoon / Tuesday evening activities and replacing them, let alone increasin numbers is always going to take time.

Just thing its somewhat disappointing to see the crowd half from when Holt made is debut.......  I understand that a lot of people walked away from the club after the demise, but a new broom etc...  If we continue along the same path I wonder what kind of crowd we can expect when Hereford come a calling... ???

Its a sure think that if we achieve the stated aim of Football League then we will need much bigger attendances to fund that ambition.

As for the PR side..... Like you said its been covered... All I can think is the Chairman must be happy with those doing the job, in pulling in 500,  otherwise he would have changed things. Somehow it doesn't quite fit for me.
