Now isnít that more like it.   Hopefully the position is already filled and the club can maximise its potential.

Then we need a press officer.  One that has the experience.  Need to cover single points of failure to make chances seamless.

I never believed when I started this post that there would be so many responses most appropriate and relevant.  I was just wondering if now would be an appropriate time for all parties, and by that I mean SC, Trust and FOTL to sit down and try and find some common ground. I am sure that there are some people on here who like me are not connected with any group and therefore impartial, who would be willing to help broker the talks.

Good post Blueboy. How would you start to broker talks when potential club  liabilities, are circa £1m plus.

All good to have in place, KES, but not money spinners.  And, to be honest, I donít think they should be priorities, apart from trained stewards, because most people who attend games at the moment live fairly close by - why not have a bite or a cuppa before they come ?  Beer wonít sell much, if people have to drive home.  I see you made a point or two on the ďthreadĒ today, so presume you watched the game.  Any impressions of the team or players ?


Say re Southend at home Dilly.......if Covid doesn't scare people off, I reckon if you include the Southend fans, there will be as many at the ground who have travelled 30 miles plus to get there as there will be those that live round the corner.......so I don't think you argument stacks up....by saying it's not a money spinner, you are just taking the same attitude as those in charge of the club.......and there are plenty on here who are not happy and live locally....many locals want a long afternoon of football....drink before, snack at half time, drink after....... surely it's not too much to ask.


Re my points on the thread.... they were directed at the media dept.....for an NL club to manage one tweet after 20 mins to say the score was 2-0(when Stratford had already mentioned both goals...so old info), one tweet at half time and one at the end of the game, I guess was efficient 😁, but to me, very disappointing.....if I wasn't a Lynn fan, I'd be tempted to use the term tin pot.

I wouldnít usually respond, and shouldnít have to justify myself but my Dad has been in hospital and only recently discharged hence why I didnít go to Stratford. Iím sorry family takes precedence over a pre-season friendly. Iíll make sure it doesnít happen again, if he ends up in hospital I wonít bother seeing him.

Be nice if people thought thereís a reason why things donít happenÖ.guess that too much to ask.

My one & only comment on the subject. Hereís to a good season.

Thanks Jamie for your reply and I am sorry to hear about your Dad and I wish him well.
There was an apology at outset on the club's twitter feed that due to illness and work there would be limited updates........but my comments are not really directed towards you, but the club....surely a plan B has to be in place for a full time NL club.... that's the point I made at the time and I still think it's a fair one.

Marcus, good point, but I meant in helping to broker talks, not any deal.

Hard to see any deal, with anyone, with liabilities like that involved. Fire fighting for survival  more like.

I sponsored THREE players and still havenít received my shirts! Iíve been told they are in the box office but wonít be signed as the players have now left! This is an appalling way to treat a sponsor. Surely it would have been a good idea to post me the shirts, along with a letter thanking me for my support and giving me details of this seasonís sponsorship opportunities (not that I will be putting another penny into a club that treats its sponsors so badly).
Oberon and Sams Dad. I doubt that you will ever see the shirts promised as the kitman came to see me weeks ago to change the names on the backs of the shirts of the players that have left. Obviously i refused, for one the existing names will bleed and ruin the shirts attempting to take the names off and 2 being treat like a piece of s**t in the past including SC broadcasting to the world on his podcast at the end of 2020 that Gordon Chilvers is not busy at Double G Clothing and will be closing down at the end of the year. (2020). Well SC we are busier than ever especially with the supply of football kits, especially Joma that is good enough for Norwich City in the Premier but common as muck for KLTFC to wear.
So sorry Oberon and SamsDads unless there is a serious change you will not get your promised shirts.
Yes you are right Oberon it is no way to treat a sponsor but don't i know it 1st hand.

Is there anyone who has received a sponsored player's shirt over the years?   I am still waiting for Lee Stevenson's shirt from his first spell at Lynn.   2004, if memory serves.

Oh dear Ö I also sponsored a player last season and tbh felt a little flat with the whole participation of going so Ö I shall not be going down that route again (a) still no shirt (b) didnít do as I asked in the programme regarding name (c) I was expecting to be contacted to see if I would this season Ö nothing (d) I know with cov 19 but I personally think a message of thanks from the player or staff would go along way again nothing Ö Iíll support the club by buying a season ticket but my other fund  for football will now go to my away travel .

Very really do I knock kltfc as I really do enjoy be there , but this year I feel thereís something lacking , Jamie does really well in his roll etc in keeping us updated but I feel heís restricted from no news from the powers above  this year I really do think SC need to start interacting more Ö evening with Sc , IC  or even some players doing a QnA night , also howís the new snack bar going to work when away fans are there ? Personally £7 for saison chips n drink expensive think Boston when I went there had more variety and reason £ Ö.. ok if you read thanks and hopefully see you all at the walks

With you on this one Kes. No plan B. Never seems to be one. If someone is not available someone should step in. That should be the case for any position at the Club. We are a NL full time club. Need to act like one from top to bottom, all the time.

Can you see it happening elsewhere:

LN's.

Sorry, Greg Plummer is not available so no Sports news this week.

EDP.

Sorry Chris Lakey is not available so no Sports news this week.

IC

Sorry, we have three players carrying injury and I didn't arrange any subs, so we'll be starting  with 8 players at today's game.

Sorry, the Kitman wasn't available to wash the kit, so we'll be the ones in skins today.


Proof that the top prices in this League don't result in top service for the supporters who after all, are who the updates are (presumably) supplied for.

There's always going to be things that crop up in life to spoil the plan (ask WLM). That shouldn't mean, and must not mean, it doesn't then get done.

When you're dead, you don't know you are dead. The pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

I really hope the sponsored shirts do arrive, will be the final nail if not.

Relieved but also sad that others have suffered the same, it took me 5-6 emails and chasers to get my original reply of I wonít recieve it til friendlys are complete.

May be worth a few of us chasing too see what reply we get.
