In fairness Loopy today we drew the first half and the gap to safety is still 14 points.

Like you I think SC has made another mistake in appointing a Manager.  This one looks another Simon Clark.

However no point in sacking him.  All that will do is give the Club another Managerís contract to pay up.  Any new guy coming in isnít going to rescue this mess.   Time to reduce costs and limp to the end of the season.  Hopefully giving SC time to reorganise things on and off the pitch and look to bring in some fresh investment.

Anyone who considers investing in the current set up will have much more money than sense and in all probability have taken leave of their senses.

You can end up with a small fortune if you buy a football club........

But only if you start with a large fortune.

Surely there must be a few more Stephen Cleeves ( White Knights) around the corner ?

Jury still out on Tommy as far as Iím concerned. Silk purse and Sows ear comes to mind.

I think any Manager in Lynnís situation would find and buy a striker if he had the funds made available to him. Unless he Tommy is making repeated and obvious tactical errors, Iím prepared to give him the benefit of the doubt for the time being.

I think itís far more likely that the cause of the predicament we are in lies elsewhere, and we are seeing the results of mis-management from the previous couple of seasons. When the business model has appeared to be ďspend to winĒ, and you suddenly stop spending, where we are now is what you get.

No one is going to invest in this club with Cleeve's past record.

It is not about investment it is about turning a bunch of losers into a bunch of winners? Should be starting with Barrett and Charles,Barretts obvious ability would compliment the speed of Charles,but we still need to bring in a proven goalscorer.26 goals across the season in all competitions is abysmal! :sinking:

It all seems too little too late now. If we had picked up just a single point since dover then dreaming of a miracle maybe, but since then the gap has just got even wider.

In general terms football is not a good investment.  Only a handful of teams in the Premier League make a profit. How you make any profit in the National leauge premier is just about impossable. In Lynns case breaking even would be a good result..

Lynn would almost certainly require a sizable boost to income to even maintain status as a step 2 Club.

If Commercial and other fund raising activities were performing as they should be, and as they have done previously when the likes of Gordon Chilvers was involved with the Management Committee, then its probably possible to operate at step 3 without financial doping.

The fact that Gordon is no longer involved speaks volumes?
