Lynn lose 2-0 away to Boston.

Never thought i would say this, but we offered nothing, but big boot up the field. Looking at the end of the game, i get the impression we are down and out.

Truthfully Mac did you really expect anything else ?  The noise off the field has to effect those on it.   Results now surely must come 2nd to realisation that we may well be about to see things called to halt.

SC said he is not tweeting again until he has some positive news to report. Not a case of no news is good news in this instance.
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what itís all about ?

Sell em all and play the under 19s. We may get relegated and may not but might still have a saleable club. Better than starting anew again at step 5

This is really painful to watch, even from a distance and although the outcome was inevitable, the overriding emotion is that of sadness. Were KLTFC an animal, it would be 'put out of its misery'.

Are Corby far behind us?

Overspending, budgeting for income that never materialised.

Just a dreadful day all round:

Clueless on the pitch, not for the first time under AL and questions have to be asked about how good a manager he really is, appreciate he isn't working with his players and confidence isn't likely to be great but this whole focus on fitness seems to be at the complete absence of doing any ball or formation work in training as if they are doing any of that it sure as hell doesn't show in games whatsoever.  That said, will be interesting to hear his post match comments, he can't keep clinging to praising full time players for 'working hard' at some point he has to accept that today they barely did that and we have to find a way to shift a few more bodies out of the door, either those who will command a fee such as Crowther etc or the likes of Ronan etc who just need moving on.

Not great off the pitch either and whilst I understand fans frustrations, shouting for Cleeve to sell up shows a real detachment from the reality, my guess is that he has been trying to do that for months.  The issues at the club are far deeper than just finding some new mug with deeper pockets to dig us out of the current hole.  I do wonder how many of them would concur with Jono's comments about playing the under 19s, personally I wouldn't want to put young lads into that environment at present

All in all pretty dire but the madness of football is we will be back again on Saturday at home to Darlington, if we still have a club to support.

A Darlington Club who have just appointed Ex York
City Manager Steve Watson as their new boss.

How many of theses players are actually good enough to command a fee, 2 or 3 maybe, but definitely not club saving amounts, the better quality players in our squad belong to other clubs and not ours.

Iíve not really commented a lot on KLTFC as much this season as others, I did say players signed early season were not up to standard required for this league, I also commented on manager being a nice person but not up to the level required at the beginning of the season, I feel vindicated in my opinions early doors this season.
As for our new manager, heís had plenty of time to stamp his mark on a full time squad now in my opinion, I know that he is working with mostly inherited players, but is this team really any better, IMHO, no, same dross being dished up at over inflated admission prices.
Iíve been a LINNET since the early 1970s and stood on the terraces with 350/400 fans on a cold Tuesday night, in the old Northern Premier League, but I am now really questioning my support for my home town club.

At least this club has the decency to inform its supporters what is happening, itís a shame our club didnít treat us the same way.

Part of the Norwich paper report:

"The final whistle was greeted by home cheers, while Lynn fans responded with chants of 'we want Cleeve out' - a reflection of the current financial concerns at the club and dissatisfaction with owner Stephen Cleeve".

It was a case of men against boys today - Boston wanted it and we didn't seem to have the same appetite.

Not intentionally singling one player out in a rubbish performance, but we have a young tall striker, but we don't win anything in the air up front.......until Coulson goes up there.

Among the many things we need is a tenacious ball winning midfielder, who is prepared to get stuck in and fight for the cause - we have a lot of technically gifted players but none who will stick a foot in (cleanly) to win a tackle at the risk of getting hurt.

I personally like the manager and his assistant, but in a results driven business, they need to start earning their money - we are constantly told that these players are not the managers players, yet football experts often tell us that "good players can adapt to any system".......so either our system is such a mess it is impossible to adapt, or, our players just aren't that good.......or both.

We didn't even have a shot until late in the second half

I think the off field shennanigans IS having a big affect on the field and if we aren't careful, it could turn toxic as fans become more frustrated with the situation and results, which will in turn transcend onto the pitch and affect the players further.

Today, at the end of the match, when the players came across to applaud us and we were singing "Cleeve Out" etc., was it me, or did they stand there longer than normal??
What must they all be thinking??

It's a mess

The best managers adapt the system to get the best out of the players that they inherit, prior to reshaping their squad.

For all we know, maybe Adam Lakeland has already done that for the system he wants to play
