Managers interview
« on: January 24, 2024, 06:08:30 PM »
The manager is a genius...he actually knows for a fact the games Lynn would have dropped points in if Barrett was playing....and has also taken full credit for Curzons victory over us. :comeon:

To be fair to AL he nearly always faces the press, admittedly they don't give him a particularly hard time but after performances like last night I think most of us would either want to get straight in the car or end up 'saying what we thought' about some of the players which is, of course, counter productive when most of them are probably going to be with us for the rest of the season.

I thought his comments on JB were spot on, he didn't quite go as far as saying we were carrying him in games but it was clear that he no longer wanted to accept half hearted performances and for those saying we were ripped off, why would we let him go on a free if there were a queue of teams who wanted to buy him?

I think his comments about Curzon were partly justifying his position in that he has had success when given time but whilst recruitment is a key part of management in non-league, so too is getting the best out of what you have and I remain to be convinced that AL has shown the necessary skills in this area, with many of his teams looking less than the sum of their parts.

Well said TonyM. What we donít know is the real financial situatiion and what AL has to play with. It may be his hands are tied and he has few options other than to look for players available on loan. I fear the worst this season but I would guess we have what we have until the endÖif we get out of jail I will be delighted and look forward to next season.

Iím far from happy as a long-standing supporter but how many of us would sink money into the Club as Mr Cleeve has done?  We just have have to cut the manager some slack and trust he can turn things around. Changing again would serve no purpose.

This is the same Lakelandís Curzon Ashton side  that Mark Hughes took an  unfit ( ALís word) Lynn side there earlier in the season to take a point.
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what itís all about ?

Sinking money into the Club. Easy come easy go.

Why has no-one questioned lakeland, the moving of a very senior centre-half "constantly " used as a emergency no 9 when going behind...even though regular forwards are sitting on the bench..🧐 Against Curzon it was before half time?? I doubt these TACTICS  would be used at junior level🤔

He took on a team that wasnít good enough at the beginning he said has much and now heís trying to rebuild a team and that will take time, I wish he would start using the wings more and get more crosses into the box itís no use bringing in a striker and then not supplying him with the ball.The biggest problem is we have been spoiled and we are not used to seeing a Lynn team beat has bad as we were on Tuesday night itís hard to take but it can only get better so letís keep the faith and back our Team C O U L

But some of it may have come from some who were once 'digging ditches'?

Al sounds like a football manager, actually like most football managers.  He mistakenly thinks players like Barrett plays a half-hearted game, whereas good players, like JB, are looking to beat a player if necessary, then produce a clever through-ball.  AL thinks fitness and running about like headless chickens to chase hoofed wind assisted balls is a ďshiftĒ he wants to see.  At least thatís the impression I get from his teamís performance and his subsequent assessments.  If Iím wrong, and hope I am, I apologise, but players who play like JB win matches if teammates are as clever, whereas the fit butchers dogs donít, in generalÖ

Dilly, for the criticism AL has come in for on here and social media over the past few days, I have seen very few Walks regulars who have disagreed with his assessment of JB in his press conference Tuesday evening, maybe you are watching a different player when you go?  I would say that on a personal level, my problem isn't because I like 'kick & rush' football, far from it, and if we could turn back the clock to watch the flowing passing game we regularly saw under IC or even the more dynamic but equally enjoyable purple patch we had under TW late autumn last season then I would be more than happy but supporting a club means accepting the bad times (even as bad as it was on Tuesday) as well as the good and you just hope that over the years there is more good than bad.

I would see TW signing Barrett as a chance for Josh to get himself somewhere near to match fitness to earn himself a contract for next season.   I can well see him being mainly used in a cameo role for say the last 10-15 mins when the pace of the game will be more suited to him and the when the game is Ďstretchedí.

Not the sort of player you would want to bring on when you are holding on for a point of protecting an odd goal lead
