Torquay away

What can we expect/hope for from this one ?

Gary Johnson must be under huge pressure having seen the clubs lead at the top of the  table melt away.  Sutton seem well in control now.

IC certainly did a job on them at The Walks.  So can he produce another master class ?

The most we can expect I guess is the whole hearted effort that everyone always gives.

We can hope for an early goal or two.


Will be a tough few days........ it's a long couple of trips and with finances stretched, presumably transport and hotel stays may be altered from the norm. If they can cope with the journeys, then Lynn have nothing to fear from either Torquay or Altrincham on the pitch, provided the defence keeps on its toes and avoids anything loose/sloppy.

Tactical Dillyfication.....Gyasi, King, Jackson, Kiwomya - some of the best defenders we have, out of the available players.........  ?!!

Think King is injured and/or furloughed Dilly.  Not ya slippery Nipster type, more ya pick a pass player who sees things before others.

Yes I concur, don't believe King is available.....was just beginning to show his true ability...real pace and ability to glide past people and pick an early decisive pass

KES and MLl - Thatís Dillyís definition, a mix of both your opinions, there.    Glide past, pick a pass, beat a man, King is a playmaker AND slippery nipster....  Weíre definitely getting to grips with this league now, but need our goal scorers back...

Close again....but no cigar....but provided as seems almost certain now, there is no relegation, then Lynn are doing fine. They are not getting the breaks or luck this term , but they had plenty in the last couple of seasons and hopefully they will get them again next term. Now unlucky to just miss out against the top teams in the division... that's a big turnaround from the start of the season.......and each narrow loss is a vital lesson and hardening up for the squad. This continuation must also be providing vital info for IC in terms of opposition, tactics and his own personnel.

It's marvelous really. The last three games has seen two single goal defeats and a draw against one of the sides that will be promoted at the end of the season.

In truth Dilly, the only forward who has looked consistently sharp at this level is Loza........I think we may have some new forwards for next season.......Mitchell looks like he may grow into it, but will personally be surprised if all 3 of Gash, Southwell and Marriott are retained....will be interesting to see what Davies can do.

With all due respect to the players concerned we are playing with a cobbled together team and still performing well against full-time teams. Results are not getting points but are getting experience into players which is no bad thing.  :scarf:
No Plan Survives First Contact With the Opposition - Attack is the Best Form of Defence. (It works for the Military which is also a Team.)

The players are doing the Club proud in what seems a pointless exercise.  Dover still waiting for their charges to be heard.  They are having to wait till the FA are asked to vote on the NL decision not to allow Step 2 to continue.

Can this management committee actually get any more farcical?

As for players gaining experience.  Who knows how many of them will be with us, or what budgets we will be working with.  Think Clubs might well have to be looking at much lower crowds to base their playing budget  cost on.   Thatís If the reports Iíve been reading  are anywhere near correct.

Tough times ahead

Tough times ahead


Same for everyone, its not just a football or sports thing.

Let's hope that's taken account by all the powers that be when planning for the very difficult years that will be ahead of us.

It is what it is, and we will all have to adapt accordingly. We won't be going back to "normal" for a long, long time.

 :scarf:

BBC this morning:

Covid: Masks and social distancing 'could last years'

People may need to wear face coverings and socially distance for several years until we return to normality, a leading epidemiologist has predicted.

Mary Ramsay, the head of immunisation at Public Health England, said basic measures could be in place until other countries successfully roll out jabs.

She also said a return of big spectator events required careful monitoring and clear instructions about staying safe.


Prof Chris Whitty, the UK government's chief medical adviser, told MPs earlier this month that it was hoped "simple interventions like washing hands, face masks where appropriate, test-and-trace, and above all vaccines" would keep the virus controlled beyond the summer.

Sir Patrick Vallance, the chief scientific adviser, has also said face masks could be needed in certain situations if the number of infections rises in the winter, but that it was possible people will naturally behave in a way that promotes social-distancing without the need for restrictions.
