Linnets lose more ground in title race.
« on: March 11, 2023, 04:57:58 PM »
Lynn can only manage a 1-1 draw against Kidderminster.

Att. 1865, with 78 travelling from Lynn.

With Fylde gaining a 3-2 home win over Darlington, they extend their lead at the top.

Decent point away from home. The home game v Fylde is one we probably have to win, but if we donít manage to win the league, then we must go all out to get 2nd spot to secure home advantage for hopefully two games. It looks like Chester are the only team really pushing us to go above us, so good they didnít win today and with Brackley losing, it wasnít too bad a day.

Only got a point because of the ref,only 2 decisions that went in our favour, gave us the penalty and disallowed a goal.
Perhaps a lunatic was simply a minority of one.

Itís never over till the fat lady sings but it is very much advantage Fylde now.  Out of our hands really.  Fylde also appear to have the easier run in.   Plus seem to be in better Nick than ourselves, form wise.

2nd half of the season appears to have let us down. Maybe teams have sussed us out in terms of the way we play and we havenít been able to adapt.  Plus injuries have played their part ( same as all teams), but our recruitment during the season doesnít have seem to cut it either.
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what itís all about ?

Itís far from over, itís good that we have Fylde to play at home. That is the one we really must win, so still all to play for. True or form has dipped a little, but we are still up there, keep the faith.

It sounded as if Scott had an excellent game and shows just how.much we have missed him. He has the pace and trickery of an old fashioned winger when going forward - well capable.of turning a defender. Something defenders hate. They would far rather be facing the play. I would therefore start with Cosgrave alongside Ponticelli or Stephens....all of whom have pace and a willingness to run in behind....turning the defence.

A time to be brave?

I agree with Rod, except I think Stevens AND Ponticelli could be included together in a must win home game like Fylde., Stevens in midfield as he is a footballer, and would add to the creativity we lack.

Looking on the downside, if we don't get promoted and revert to being part time will there still be a price increase? :bankrupt: :dontknow:

I agree with being more positive for the rest of the season. We gain nothing from going for one point away from home we must try for three each time. Whatís to lose?  With some teams dropping points we could, just maybe, do ourselves a big favour. Fortune favours the brave!

There is another potential elephant in the room. If we do get promoted and plan to stay there as at least a mid table side, that will bring with it a whole new set of funding issues? To go up and then spend the season fighting relegation will see gates decline?

One thing at a time but something that Mr Cleeve will surely already be turning his attention to?

Attendance won't drop, still bubble around the 1100+ area because the bigger away followings will make up for a drop in home attendance if it's a relegation battle.

It's more the reality has to set in eventually for Cleeve that King's Lynn have a ceiling on the number that will come through the gates, and the budget will need be set to this if he wants to stop having to put vast amounts of his own money into the club. If that's top half NLN for seasons to come, with occasional play off push, then that should be it. Unless he gets a big backer in, club just won't ever compete in National League because the spend has to be big to attract the players. Likes of Maidenhead can compete up there with just slightly more attendance because they have the London catchment. Endless professional clubs where there's players that have come through the academy system, or dropped down the leagues as they go into their 30s.
