Down but not out.
« on: April 30, 2022, 04:58:43 PM »
Lynn's battling performance see's a 3-3 draw against Eastleigh.

Not enough to avoid relegation and a return to the NLN, with Aldershot achieving a fine 3-1 win against County today.

"King's Lynn Town's improvement in the second half of the season came too little, too late as their two-year stay in the National League was ended at The Walks".

I couldn't agree more. Damage was done by the Management team first half of the season. Tommy has had a good go at it since he's been here and I think he'll do a good job next season. Lots of things at the Club need to be looked at for him to be able to do that, but it seems things are finally happening at the Walks now, even if it is a case of better late than never.

Fingers crossed they all work together when the new Sales Director joins, and he'll get a team behind him that really work for the Club's benefit, and a team that's capable of doing the job in hand.

So, is it a bounce right back next season, or would a year of consolidation and catching our breath be better before we try again?   :dontknow:

Feel sorry for the fans. I haven't been this season as was priced out of my usual seat by the lovely chairman at the start of the season. Really hope for the good of  the club he packs his bags otherwise the local derby will be against Heacham in a few seasons .
I wouldnt trust him to run a bath let alone a football club

A definite improvement over the last few games which bodes well for next season. Obviously we don't know what will happen in the summer regarding finance and players but hopefully we can look forward to a much better 22/23 season.

Sad day for the Club ?  Maybe.  Though Iím not convinced step one is our level.  The Chairman was more or less saying this in his EDP column today.  Looking at running on crowds of 800 next season doesnít suggest we are going for a massive promotion push.

Very interesting summer in prospect with maybe a lot players leaving and in turn coming in.

Could be a blessing in disguise.
The tickets were overpriced from the start, couple with the awful performances, attendance was always going to be poor.  Maybe lower prices and a winning team next season will boost the crowd.
Let's hope so!

Totally agree need realistic pricing for the level of football being watched. Got to be honest i really fear for Kings Lynn Town next season going down must be a financial disaster for the club.Lets hope the player recruitment next season is better than the start of this season which with a couple of exceptions was abysmal.The club to me lost it's heart when local lads who would run through a brick wall for the club were replaced with mixture of no hopers ,never have beens and scape from other clubs tables most of which probably couldn't even find kings Lynn on a map

Letís hope the Chairman and the Club in general are more proactive with the fans than has perhaps previously been the case.

SC has a few years experience on what not to do.  Letís hope lessons have been learnt and he comes back a more humble person.

Havenít been this season because I have an underlying condition and am unwilling to risk being next to someone who is infected, which is perfectly permissible under the potentially deathly rules pushed on us by this so-called Govt.  However, things appear to be improving, at least on the need for hospitalisations if not on infection numbers,  So, hopefully next season should be safer.  I donít agree that SC has done a bad job, and it is obvious our team can now compete at this level.  Too little too late, unfortunately.  I believe TW should be given another crack, as he picks a much better shaped team than IC, which is why we are now competing.  We werenít ďbig enoughĒ for the NL, neither in finance nor facilities, but the chance is still there to progress on those points.  Good luck to all in season 22/23.

I watch a lot of the National League on BT. In the great majority of cases the stadium look bigger and better, the crowds larger and I expect the financial backing is , in most cases, much higher than us.  We cannot compete with that. The power of money is so vast.

I look at Villarreal with a very similar population, with their crowds of 16500 and playing Liverpool in the Champions' League semi-final. We can but dream. Any millionaire Lynners about ? (Sorry not me, I live on a pension)

No one with any brains is going to invest while Cleeve is in charge.

In fairness to SC in his time at the helm the only people he has asked to invest in the Club is the fans.

Totally wrong Mallard. Not just the fans.
Also allegedly loads of potential sponsors(his words) who all shied away when the telephone number sums were quoted. Sponsors words.

Yes, I remember him saying something along those lines.
