As disappointing as it is to lose players like Gash, there no way of knowing if IC would have kept him or indeed if Gash would have stayed.  Plus a new Manager will come in with a fresh contact list.  We never found that elusive 20 plus goals a season man. The load was spread. If we can factor in a 20 plus man into the rest we maybe on to something.

Players, Managers and Owners will come and go

First time I think I’ve agreed with you Mallard. New manager, whoever it maybe, will have his own ideas on players. I don’t know for certain but imagine Gash would have been one of the higher earners?

It’s good Paul that you have finally seen the error of your ways. Now is the time to watch and learn. :laughcry:

Don’t worry Mallard, I have no intention of making it a regular thing!!

This is always the potential problem when a Manager ups and goes....especially when he advertises it a couple of weeks before the season ends......the vultures circle before Interviews for a new manager have even taken place. Gash is a significant loss if he goes. Much worse tho would be if he goes to Kettering.......our main rivals in the league......only one team gets direct promotion again and if Mr Cleeve is serious in wanting to climb the pyramid, then winning the league is a necessity. Kettering are a big powerful side already and Gash and O'Connor up-front could be  a real handful.
Its not all doom and gloom I agree, but Lynn need to hang on to the midfield assets now or the chances of building on the last year will quickly evaporate. They also need to get that 30 goal a season attacker pronto.

Ps Just read Stephen Cleeve's tweet to Slough on their success...really good to see from a Chairman on the losing side, when he has put a good deal of time money and effort into the season...lets hope he can find the right man

Kettering can stay being a Big Strong team for next season, and we should bear in mind that Slough’s small quick team were too good for them and possibly everyone else.  Gash is a great “trier” but it’s sped off the mark and slipperiness that wins leagues.

We have never had a "Billy Whizz" player up front. Closest was Stevie Spriggs.

The present way of playing is with the ball forward to a hold-up player (Gash) and up the wings. We might do better with two attacking forwards who can run at the defence with the ball at their feet (a la Hawkins). They either get through or are chopped outside the box - free kick in dangerous position - or in the box - penalty!

He is much more than a trier.Bit of an insult that.
