However unpalatable Mall is right in that step 1 probably isn't a sustainable level for KLTFC

Careful Tony, you'll have the people involved with Clubs media crawling all over you and accusing you of all sorts of things if you post things like that.

Of course, it won't matter that you're 100% correct.

I would hope the club's media department have better things to worry about than a post on this forum.  Also, the issue isn't one of being right or wrong, it is actions that matter, unfortunately very few of us are in a position to be able to take meaningful actions

It is not just the number of people watching, its the whole thing, ground....sponsorship.....playing structure with succession plans...and of course Money...Lynn are just not funded or set up for this level. However this is just at the present. The future may be different the current regime and structure is not strong enough for this at the present time. The only possible outcome for this season is that other teams with similar weakness end the season below Lynn. Even this may be negative because, even without anything published, the debts must be mounting. .
The match by match situation, before Christmas, is very much like during the pandemic with player being added ad hoc just to make numbers and absolutely no sign of a settled side and squad.  ............. It may well be all over...but they have not told us yet...

It was no one's fault that promotion happened so quickly from the NLN....and no one could have predicted Covid.

The fact is that the jump from step 3 is gigantic.


Somehow the club has to try and consolidate at this level, to not lose out on benefitting from 2 wonderful promotions

If they can just find a striker of note at this level,then they might just pull it off and haul themselves up to half way in the league and have a couple of good cup runs and thereby up the revenue significantly.

Going full time has resulted in a greatly improved defence and an improved midfield.

Trying to find strikers seems incredibly tough, given that top full time ones are too expensive and as gs mentioned, many part time ones don't want to go full time.

Could we/IC entertain a couple of prt time strikers within the set up, if they filled a super sub type role ?

Don’t think that’s stopped the owner or indeed the media dept in the past.  They seem to be very sensitive about certain posts and posters on here.

I agree you would hope they all have bigger issues to deal with, but...

There have always been two types of Lynn supporters.  One lot would be happy to attend if the team is better than Wisbech, or the biggest club and gates in the UCL !  The others prefer to be at the highest level possible.  The first lot would go to games to see a win against Holbeach, but not pay or go to see a defeat against Torquay, or the like.  Also, the ground development has been pitiful over the years, and must reduce the attraction of playing at The Walks for would-be players.   On gates, we seem to have forgotten that there is a killer virus out there, which must keep the crowd down.  Covid, and breaking up the promotion team too early haven’t helped.  BUT, if we found a goalscorer, and picked what nipsters we have, when at home, we could see real improvement.  If we climbed, with new blood, and Covid subsided at a much faster rate, I ‘m sure that we could hit York-level gates again…….  IMHO !!!  For tonight, pick Gyasi and Sundire, and rest Omatayo…. COYL……

Sorry Dilly but I don't think it is as black and white as you paint it in terms of 'two types' of Lynn fans.  I would guess there are very few who hark back to the UCL days, irrespective of the relative success we had.  What I would accept is that, like most clubs, attendances are a reflection of how well the team is doing and this does seem to be more apparent at the Walks, perhaps because traditionally many local football fans primarily support EPL / EFL sides but will come to watch Lynn if they are 'doing well' and/or it is a 'big game' - York being the perfect combination of the two but certainly not a benchmark for a regular attendance.  I also appreciate the COVID and the price rise at a time when many fan's income has either dropped or at least become less reliable has also had an impact on gates. 

I am not sure of why you think Omatayo needs a rest or why we would play both Gyasi AND Sundire, who have hardly force IC's hand by their performances off the bench, but we are all entitled to our opinions as to what is the best eleven from a very depleted squad is, lets see what IC comes up with against opposition that would have been a challenge even for a fully fit squad.

Not saying they are certain to win us games, but Gyasi and Sundire  are the best hope we have to put the opponents backs to the wall, instead of parking outside our penalty area.  Certainly give us more chance of winning than a team of seven defensive players.   We’re all on the same side in the end, so let’s hope for a surprise result tonight,  COYL !!
