Mightily impressed but.....
« on: October 22, 2022, 09:02:56 PM »
This afternoon was my first visit to the Walks since the early days of Culverhouse - the first incarnation. I don't class myself as a fair weather supporter though, as i had been a regular through the gates since the late 1950's and even when living too far away to attend games, the Linnet's result was always the first one i looked for....They are and will always be 'my team'.

My reasons for missing the recent seasons of success - probably unparalleled in Lynn's history(?) - were primarily driven by personal issues: though sometimes i freely admit, influenced by the off field direction of the Club.

Today was quite emotional for me and i have nothing but praise for what is happening on the pitch. Tommy has not only recruited a squad of quality - he has also very obviously developed within them, an all for one, one for all team spirit. It was self evident that there is quality and endeavour throughout the team, with Josh Barrett 'the icing on the cake'. A talent, who if he fulfils his obvious potential, could and perhaps should eventually play several leagues higher.

The downside though is that Tommy and the supporters deserve more from the 'off field' side.

I will never understand how or why certain supporters, who also run successful businesses and were / are potential sponsors - those that the club should be going out of their way to attract - have seemingly been alienated to a point where they look elsewhere for their Saturday afternoon entertainment and in some cases, an alternative home for their sponsorship monies.

These could and should be the clubs financial 'bread and butter'. So why 'bite the hand that could be feeding you'???

Too many bridges burned, sadly, Rod and it would take a complete change of attitude from the Chairman to have any chance of rebuilding them.

It IS  encouraging to see the appointment of the Community Officer...hopefully she will be left alone to do the job asked of her.

Surely with Rishi, the new Commercial Director onboard he will be looking to build back those relationships.   I got the feeling SC is expecting big things from him.   Though I donít get why SC on Twitter is selling Bus tickets and appealing for Match day sponsors. Surely thatís Rishiís job now ?
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what itís all about ?

Maybe if Rishi doesn't work out, he'll offer the job to Boris?

Commercial Director, Community Officer etc. It all fits together like a giant jigsaw. Each department of the Club should compliment the other, working towards the common  goal.

They need to be out there, banging the drum and pressing palms.

Emails and telephones have their uses, but getting face to face with people is much more important.


Not heard anymore about Rishi. Any news on whats he's achieved so far?
I don't do drugs and I don't drink.
At my age I can get the same effect just by standing up too fast.

Difficult time of the season for Rishi to come in.  The hard yards needed to happen during the summer.  Not sure how much of the groundwork Barrie was able to get done before he had to take time out due to his operation.

Hopefully Barrie is well on the way to a full recovery and he and Rishi can really take the commercial side of the Club up to the next level and beyond.

Would hate to see the same thing happen again where the off field activities are flagging behind the onfield success.  That lets us down badly before.

Our Ladies team are looking for a new manager?
