Full time v part time
« on: March 14, 2022, 03:22:18 PM »
For various reasons i have been unable to attend matches for some considerable time, so cannot make an objective judgement but i am Intrigued as what, if any, tangible.benefits have materialised from the move to full time?

Have the benefits outweighed the likely incremental cost?

  I think the benefits of being full time gives you more opportunity with your fitness and to get to know your team mates better.  The way they play the positions they get in-to ect. Part time you never spend enough time with the team..Just my opinion.. :scarf:

I see no benefits.
The squad looks the weakest I've seen at Lynn for a few years.  They don't look like a full time team,  no cohesion in their play. Not as much effort as you might expect from some of the players.
The squad we had 2 years ago was better all round,  IMO.
Can the pitch really still be taking the blame?  :dontknow:

I suppose there's full time, and full full time.  :dontknow:

Depends what the aim is or rather the goal.  If we are trying to compete with 11/12 former League Clubs at the top end of the table then for sure you need a full time squad with quality that will cost a kings ransom.   If however the idea is to try and stay in this League then it doesnít matter if players are full, part time or a hybrid system.  Itís all about the players you get onboard and the Manager.

Next season in the NLN could be very interesting in terms Manager, Player recruitment, fan support, commercial enterprise and how deeply SC is prepared to dip into his pocket.

I look at the Club from the outside and really do wonder how much different the infrastructure is at the club from the day Stephen Cleeve entered the building ?   That alone tells an interesting story.

It appeared from the moment Lynn gained promotion that the infrastructure at the club was never going to meet the demands of the NL. How can a club survive at that level without a commercial manager, for instance? The rush to turn full-time was folly. Another season, at least, as part-time would have made more sense and possibly increased the options on the quality of recruitment.
I believe Lynn has the potential to eventually achieve regular NL status and even higher. But not under the current model.  Well run clubs like Sutton, Harrogate and Forest Green prove what is possibly.

Totally agree, although I would say that we fell well short of what was the required (and will be required) in terms of infrastructure at NLN level.  As Mall suggests, we haven't really added anything off the field during SC's tenure.

Sorry, this is where we will have to disagree as I think this season has shown the myth of Lynn being a 'sleeping giant' and even stabilising at NLN will take a huge effort and, I would imagine, not insubstantial amount of cash.  As for the three clubs you have listed, at least two have relied heavily on their owner benefactors to get where they are so I personally wouldn't hold them up as 'well run'
