Well, as someone said earlier Mallard, the chairman needs to clarify the situation to ease fan anxieties.

Well, Ian Culverhouse  "Say's it Better When He Say's Nothing at All".

There was a bit of "Booing" at Half Time - directed at the Ref I think - but Ian Culverhouse seemed not amused according to some around me. He apparently turned and glared at the Stands.

Any particular part of the Stand?   :dontknow:

I think the booing came from the directors' box!

IC aimed a shut up and a little more under breath towards the booing and moaning , after to many sideway/or back passes just before HT(imo some people don’t realise  what the lads have done this season and playing against a well formed 5 midfield and back 4 isn’t as easy-as it is  standing on the sides )
I think the lads performed really well and games like yesterday will be a common occurrence when the playing surface becomes sticky and teams come to defend against an exceptional side .

I do wonder if the FA Cup has caused bigger ripples than any of us would have guessed at.
[/quote]


I think this may be the case.... ripples in 2 areas. Firstly I suspect it was asking an awful lot from an overstretched squad, without reinforcements, to have a decent cup run after a hectic opening league schedule. Ultimately, they couldn't maintain their form as the performances against Leek and Nantwich showed......so from a Manager's perspective this is obviously frustrating and now spills over into the league situation.
In the past IC has put all the focus on league, but this time around, there seemed a recognition/resignation that funds from a cup run were needed. I was hoping that was to bolster the squad, but maybe it was just to stand still (?).
SC has done brilliantly bringing the club to where it is on many levels and I am sure he doesn't want to upset the boat at this time, so are the running costs and ground improvement costs taking all the revenue at the mo ?
The key for me is how long Ryan Fryatt and Chris Smith are out for....if Ryan is back in a couple of games, then maybe the brewing issue will pass...if not there could be a problem.
Could I just say also that for me the Lynn News article didn't really portray the interview on YouTube. I realise the video may have been an edited version of the interview, but in the video IC was trying to not get drawn in by the questioning......to my way of thinking the Lynn News article is rather unhelpful and appears to fan the flames somewhat.

KES80.
What specific negative impact do you think the cup run has had?

Hi Stan,
I will try to answer succinctly without going over old ground.
Cup run : positives £25k or more in the kitty, but didn't generate the megabucks or increased attendances and no home draw.
                 negatives: has added to the workload , injuries and depletion of the squad and has taken momentum and focus away from the league ( which may /may not affect future crowd levels and income), as evidenced by 3 points from the last 4 games and a crowd of 888 for a Saturday match.
So the squad has performed brilliantly and been pushed to the limit, but is now perceived as not getting the support it deserves and that upsets the Manager, which is also a potentially huge negative

If the club needs the £25k to keep in the black/keep running
then that obviously adds much more to the value of the cup run. If not and some of the money is not used to support the team and placate the manager, then the value of the cup run might be an awful lot less.

So the Cup run is far from being the sole cause of these issues, but has certainly "upped the ante".

King's Lynn Town FC needs a lot more Sponsorship in the form of a bigger name. We have a National Name in Mars - do they sponsor anything in the sporting world?

Palm Paper, Tulip, British Sugar?, Greenyard (Pinguin as was) might be approached.

To get commercial support on board there needs to be someone in charge of the commercial development?

Most local Businesses still have a hangover from the old days 70s+. Perhaps approaching Bespak is still a touchy subject.   :dontknow:

Maybe now is the time for all those people who said they would be happy to pay extra to put their money where their mouths are? Dig deep for defenders?  :cheers:

So what is a ball park figure to bring in another decent quality centre half ? I assume loan would be cheapest, as anyone worth his salt will be on a contract, so that would presumably mean a release fee.
So wages plus NI plus travel expenses for say 30 weeks.... minimum £10k ,(?) I am guessing.Obviously lots cheaper if loan could be just for a few months , then maybe £3k (?).
