It pains me to say but Lynn are nowhere as big a Club as some think - while the pricing may have deterred a few the attendances have been abysmal overall.

There just isnt enough of a fan base to support Football at this level

You're right,we have gone very quickly from being a big fish in a small pond to a small fish in a big pond,but with the right pricing structure we could see I believe we could see regular 1500+ gates,but the performance on the pitch needs to improve. Things off the pitch are improving very slowly,but remember we are in unchartered territory?  :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

Talking about town sive,  Forest Green have done well.
Forest Green have done exceptionally well, but they do have an energy mogul at the helm
Yes but we have a supposed valuable wine specialist, fake champagne specialist and dodgy land dealer as ours!

This is true, and I believe he is a Norfolk boy. IF ONLY. :banghead;

And when he calls time on it, as most of them do sooner or later, what then for the Club?

Good call Loopy. Yes he did make the brave decision of sacking Setch to bring in IC which saw us rise up into  the NL.   He didn’t get everything wrong without a doubt.

Maybe, but it is Cleeve that appoints these Managers.

The only one he didn't appoint was (back to back) Setch.

For me I like the guy and has given us some great highlights over his reign.. I do feel for him since covid hit he’s had to make tough decisions and only time will tell wether right or wrong ones , had not the pandemic happened I feel our support and approach would of been so different and think our crowds would’ve not been so affected. However…. He’s trying to get things right off the pitch but he really did need to get us involved more and more engaging with the fans so much could’ve been done to help with many a good idea he do have a self destruct button for s/media but what he don’t realise the flack it gives us /club … only time will tell just hope his past doesn’t haunt us .

Hope it doesn't haunt us?????? Surely it does every single day with the most important fact of all. NOBODY with any money and who can read will have anything to do with KLTFC while SC is at the helm. There is a huge amount of industry within a 10 mile radius of Kl but not one of them will sponsor KLTFC because of the ridiculous amounts of money asked for the pleasure of doing so. Business people talk amongst themselves and the amount of times i have heard he asked for £100k, well i was offered at £75K etc etc.
The commercial side that should be exploring every avenue bringing in sponsorships etc usually lasts about 7 days before the latest incumbant leaves. Famous scouts (who allegedly founded Rooney), who cost KLTFC a small fortune and found NOTHING.
You all keep listening to the spiel but the final result is always the same. ZILCH.
Take off your blinkers people. If anyone has all the programme notes from day 1 i guarantee even a tiny percentage have ever come to anything.
As for Setch getting the sack, in the February i was driving SC to Harlow Football Club to meet Joma. One of the conversations was Gordon do you think i should sack Setch. Obviously i refused to give an answer to that question. On the way home Gordon stop at McDonalds for a meal. He even held the door open for me but to tell me on going inside i haven't any cash or cards with me Gordon!!!!!
Said it before i can write a book.
I will call it "Wakey wakey KL Supporters".

Closer to fact than fiction and very few, if any,  sour grapes.

Surely a small price to pay Gordon for the privilege of sponsoring the Club.  I remember he had three offers on the table at one time.

What did happen to that table? :dontknow:
