Some will point to the FA cup matches as an excuse for the defeat today (tired legs, injuries etc.) but as the York manager said before the game and Culverhouse said afterwards: it's all  about what you do in the attacking third and the defensive third and York were better than Lynn in those areas today. Lynn will learn from this and will come back stronger. Still confident they'll make a play-off place which would be an extraordinary achievement for a first season at Step 2.

Good impartial BBC Radio York praised Lynn for the football they played with no sign of fatigue, there was no player investment in the cup? Lynn have played 3 tough games in 7 days and should be proud of a Draw, Win and a loss to a full time outfit. Any suggestion that the cup matches led to this defeat, is as daft as the idea of resting pre Alfreton. Well done Lynn for a good weeks work. Next time a player gets an knock in a League, or cup game, we should assume he should not have been there, AND WOULD NOT BE INJURED IF HE WAS NOT PLAYING FOOTBALL!!! . League and Cup, both vital to this club at the moment.......

Well no great surprise today with the result, though it sounds like Lynn gave a decent account of themselves.
Tough enough playing away to a full time side of 26 pros who have had a full week to prepare for what they see as the most important fixture over the last couple of weeks, but
Lynn with a squad of 16/17 and missing Fryatt through injury and Gash just returning from injury ( both as a result of the cup) only had 3 days off and two really tough encounters with Alfreton in the week.
You just can't have it all at this level with a small squad, however brilliant the coach or talented the players.
Just hope the 'player investment' in the cup run , really pays off now.
Lynn still sit third in the league and have a decent draw for the cup next week ..all to play for....onwards and upwards COYL !

Given that play-off places go all the way down to 7th, think we should realistically expect to be in them, given the start to the season. York this year seems like they might be comparable to Hereford in our league two years ago, with such a spending differential to turn the league into a race for second.

Back in B and B following game.
Good day out in York; visit to railway museum and good walk to and from ground
Enjoyable game ;  commitment from both teams. Shame we had to wait until 2.15pm before being let in the ground. Lynn had plenty of possession and York defended well and were pretty ruthless in taking their chances.Impressed with Nathan Fox and Ross Barrows second half.
Onwards to Leek !

Agreed Stan. Final third may have been compromised a little by Gash not being fully fit and the defensive third by Fryatt's injury...(think we may have played 3 recognised centre halves at the back if they had been available). But as you say a great learning experience

A good day out for the 300 linnets fans who made the long trip.
Not let in until 2.15. Poor facilitates  - the loos were like it was 50 years ago !
No bar and only basic expensive food etc.
As IC said after the game, we were up against a fulltime outfit. Onwards to the FA cup at Leek.
Good to see so many familiar linnets fans. COYL

If Gash wasn't fit he shouldn't have played. Pointless risking further injury for the sake of one game and the Lynn side that beat Alfreton on Tuesday were plenty good enough to take on York. It was Lynn's inability to create good opportunities in the final third that was the main problem and the goals came from crosses which should have been stopped so the problems at the back were largely caused by that so neither issue attributable to Gash who seemed fine or Fryatt who wouldn't have stopped the crosses either. Alex Street should have done better for their first goal.

Well I believe you have seen the IC interview Stan. He said Gash wasn't fully fit but put in a tremendous effort and that the goals came from crosses where the forward got across their marker.......so to say Fryatt wouldn't have done any better seems a little bit unfair on the player.I assume you were at York and had a different view to IC  :dontknow:

Whether Gash's fitness or the absence of Fryatt made a significant difference is something that we cannot know for sure. What we can say for sure is that Lynn were very good in possession but not so good at reforming their shape on the transition. It was a very similar pattern to the Guiseley game in many respects. This is something that Culverhouse acknowledged in the interview.

Lets not get to despondent, only our 2nd defeat this season, and I don't think we are punching above our weight, we are 3rd on merit, and there is no reason for us to think we will not be in the top half come the end of the season. Lets go to Leek and make it to the 4th qualifying round, and then who knows. If some of you want to watch York again (why should you?) they are 10 miles down the road at Buxton.  With reference to Gash, IMO he should not have played, it could have and may have made his injury worse.

We are up there playing with the big boys.  IC keeps telling us we will get his bumps in the road.   Thatís ok and has to be expected.  Itís how we bounce back that counts.  We did it after Guiseley and Iím sure we will again after yesterday.

We are playing a brand of Football that is so enjoyable to watch but we will get picked off from time to time.  Small price to pay for the style we play.

It will be interesting to see how we face up when York come to us later in the season.

It might be a big price to play if it costs us points. In certain away matches Lynn need to be a bit smarter. Playing too open is a risk to Lynn's promotion hopes. In the same way that playing a full strength side in the FA Cup might be considered a risk to promotion hopes.

IC might well tinker with things as the season progresses but canít see him changing his MO on the way he wants to his team to play.
 Iím loving the way we play, breath of fresh air. For sure we can improve, that may come with different bodies coming in and IC improving what we have.
