AARON POWELL
« on: February 01, 2024, 12:13:51 PM »
Played for Peterborough U21's against Bristol City last Saturday. Presumably loan period has finished, not given much game time at Lynn to impress.
We are certainly lacking in pace across back line and as the only fit left back he should have been given a chance but it seems AL would rather play a centre back in this position instead.

I feel sorry for him. What a complete waste of time that was and I'd be surprised if Peterborough are best pleased?

Rod, I couldn't agree more.  Unfortunately that is now the 2nd Peterborough loanee who has come to us and got next to no game time (can't remember the name of the young lad who came in IC's tenure) so it looks a bit like a 'club' thing rather than the manager, although in both cases you do wonder who arranged the loans?  Whilst Powell didn't get much time on the pitch, to me he did at least look like he had a bit of positional sense as a left back which is more than can be said for anyone else apart from Isaacson who has lined up there this season, although I am not sure I agree with Normski's thoughts that he added much pace.

Tony, i have thought for quite a while that local players are not valued as highly as those that come from outside the area. Why? I have no idea, as this would seem to be wholly illogical? The primary recent example being Joe Taylor, who i believe suffered from 'local boy syndrome'? Perhaps, i have been spoilt over the years, being able to watch such as the Defty brothers and many more, who added value to the club both on and off the pitch. They metaphorically 'kissed the badge' because it really meant something to them!

Maybe itís a Peterborough thing.  Remember Barry Fryís boy coming on loan. Nepotism at its best.

It would seem with Powell that maybe AL wanted to go a different route.

What is no surprise is that the loan seems to have ended and the fans once again knew nothing about it.

Tony was the lad you were thinking of Kyle Barker ?
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what itís all about ?

It was indeed Mall, thanks.  From memory he came when we had a pretty strong, experienced midfield so that combined with IC's reluctance to blood youngsters meant he didn't get much of a look in.

On a slight tangent, there was news on Twitter today about a school trip last week involving one of the bright lights of this season and another not so bright, both of whom have turned out at left back.  We know that Isaacson is out on loan but no idea what has happened to Clifford, is he out on loan, injured or just not in AL's plans (in which case you would hope for a similar outcome to JB)

"Last week, @LinnetsintheCom, Tom Clifford and Ben Isaacson visited Fairstead Primary School to participate in a Q&A, and allowed some young aspiring footballers to show off their skills"

A young Lad from Lynn,that was prepared to play for his home team for no wages for a month. Apparently, partly in order to get some game time but also because he was fully aware what the financial picture was at Lynn.

If he wasn't going to get game time they should never have agreed to take him. It has cost him his own personal money to be with Lynn for the  time he was here.

He must be feeling so disillusioned with the whole episode.

to a registered charity, as all I need is a pint a day, if I ever get outta here.

B&G, I had heard a similar rumour re Powell's wages which, if true, does make how he was treated seem even worse.

All credit to the lad in his attempt to get some game time.  Just guess he wasnít for AL.   Yet the likes of Ronan and Clifford are.

Game of opinions.  Only  one manís opinion  counts at Lynn.  Then again ...,,,
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what itís all about ?

If that is so, it is both embarrassing and shameful.

Aaron Powell has been treated appallingly.  It actually cost him money to come to Lynn on loan.  If Lynn have any morals they should repay the lad what he has lost.
