Title: Players out on loan
Post by: Teachers Pet on October 22, 2017, 16:47:01 pm
James Goff - St Ives Town. The original loan was for a month, this has now been extended until 6th January 2018

Luke Coddington - Wrexham. One month loan, this has finished and Luke has now returned. Had an excellent loan though and their fans love him describing him as the best keeper since Chris Maxwell.

Leon Lobjoit - Corby Town. One month loan due to expire in a week or so.

Joe Iaciofano - Chesham United. One month loan, also due to expire in a week or so.

All four loans have been successful, better getting game time than not.

Both Leon Lobjoit (25/10) and Joe Iaciofano (26/10) will have the initial loan ending this week. Nothing has come out of the club to suggest these loans will be extended. So, it will be interesting to see what happens in the next couple of days. There again, maybe nothing will be said, as was the case with Luke Coddington recently.

Post by: The Rauldinho on October 26, 2017, 09:33:14 am
Hopefully Iaciofano or Lobjoit are seen in the squad on Saturday, and given at least fifteen minutes but with Revs back I am doubtful this will happen.

Not sure why the Coddington loan wasn't extended, surely better for him to be playing than not? Unless a loan in L2 is available for him?

It has been confirmed by Corby Town that Leon Lobjoit has returned to NTFC after his 1 month loan deal.

No news on Joe Iaciofano as yet.

Lobjoit starts for Nuneaton Town in 2-2 draw with Chorley but no goals alas.

I'd give Joe a go on his return. I hope it works out for at least one of the two strikers but if we sign a couple in Jan, they could have a longer wait.
I don't buy the argument about the level they are playing. Ian Wright was banging in goals at park level once. Plus we are talking about the Cobblers, anyone we would think we were Oxelona. Look at DCL playing pretty regularly in the Prem. Was he that stand out here? If you don't throw these lads in at some stage you'll never know. I get the 'Jimmy knows best' tagline but we're not really threatening the back of the net too often this season.


Title: Re: Players out on loan

Totally agree, really cannot see what we have to lose at this point.

Long seems to be our only striking option at the minute, with Waters and Hoskins not getting a run there and Rico not looking up to much.

If he gets injured we are screwed it seems.

Four more for Joe today in Cheshams 13-1 win over Merthyr. The welsh team are fighting financial issues, lost most of their squad in the week and had to play a development side today, including a 15 year old in goal.

16 goals in 13 games is certainly a decent return, but I would like to see him loaned out to a team higher up the non-league pyramid and prove himself at a better level of football before dropping him in at the deep end in league 1.

I've said it before and I will say it again, we have nothing to lose from having him in the squad. Richards is finished, get young joe back in the squad and on our bench.

Canít help but agree with this. The whinging Cobblers fans currently in the stands could ruin the lad.

I was told yesterday by a usually reliable source that he has a new agent with high profile players on his books. Maybe we wonít get to see him in a Cobblers shirt again anyway.

Very firm response from JFH on Joe. He says that JI has great ability particularly in the box! and has tried without success to play him at a higher level than at present. His opinion is that JI does not yet offer the ability to perform at a higher level with his team mates. If suitable Club can be found and he does well he may get the break he needs. For the time being - the answer is no! End off!

Seems a very sensible move from JFH. See how he does out on loan, wait till he scores 25 in 20, recall him, play him a couple of times, then sell him on just in time for KT to have a nice summer holiday.

Luckily we are firing on all cylinders at the minute...

Post by: guest2487 on November 28, 2017, 23:10:37 pm
Lobjoit has never looked good enough has he? I know he's barely had a chance BUT you can usually tell pretty quickly.

Joey I think is a different case, he definitely has potential but it's not the right environment for him to be in our first team yet. Also he clearly needs to develop his all round game. I trust the club on this one.

You're telling me for one second nevers that having JI in our squad would offer us less than Rico or Revell currently does??

No one knows if he will cut it, including jimmy until he is given an opportunity and our need is great at present.

I know its a long trip, but you did not even bother get the Trust to read out your query on JI; forcibly put I hope. In reality you should have come to the meeting and put the JI question directly to JFH. Its clearly an extremely important issue for you; it must be as it preys on your every thought- yes/no.

In the meantime you can bore everybody on here stiff with your crusade, but it wont change JFH strategy anytime soon.

Post by: DrillingCobbler on November 29, 2017, 08:44:34 am
I can't comment on Joey (having only seen him for the odd minute thanks to Rob Pages ridiculous substations!) but with regards to Lobjolt, I went to the friendly against R&D in the summer and he looked way out of his depth in that game. I only went because I live in Rushden and specifically wanted to see him play. I came away thinking he's got two hopes of getting in our teamÖ

NOW. I get the 'romantic notion' that we all want to see a local kid striker in the team, particularly at this point because of the goal drought emphasised by the washed up set of forwards we have at our disposal. BUT if he's/they are not considered good enough at this point in time then its got to be respected. JFH cannot be accused of not playing kids, McWilliams has become a fairly regular starter in the team and he's what 18 or 19? Poole as well of course, albeit he's a loanee.

Given Lobjolts age (22?), Im struggling to see how he's going to cut it at this level now. He did 'ok' at Corby but nothing special, went up a notch and can't even get a game. Kind of says it all Im afraid. And those suggesting he should be given 10-15 minutes are letting their hearts rule their heads in this instance.

Joey on the other hand is scoring for fun but at an extremely low level. Probably around the same level as Lobjolt played last season. I must admit Id be tempted to give him a go based on stats only but I cannot pass comment on his ability so I find it difficult to argue his case at this point in time!

There's a big difference in the significance of someone's all-round game when they are played up front on their own and when they are part of an attacking pair or trio with their main role being getting shots off.

That's all it is.

I was talking to a friend on the coaching set up at NTFC about a month ago about the players in training. LL and JI are apparently quite a long way off the standard our current (substandard?!) strikers are at. I get the attitude of 'it can't be any worse', but it really can if the team feel like they are playing with 10 men for the game.

Hopefully both players can hit some sort of form on loan for someone and return to us a much improved player.

Very surprised Coddington hasn't gone back to Wrexham, at least on loan. Maybe Jimmy wants to keep him as backup and is looking to move Cornell on?

I think Goff will fill the 3rd Keeper role, maybe loaned out somewhere higher than his previous loan with a recall clause.

They continuously spelt his name wrong as well. Clearly he doesn't have the desire to play, after having gone to non league and being given an opportunity you thought he might have worked a bit harder. Its obvious he's had a sulk at being sent on loan and got to big for his boots.

Northampton Town striker could stay for season, says Saints boss.

https://www.cambridge-news.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/northampton-town-striker-could-stay-14206850

The on-loan striker has bagged five goals in nine games since arriving from the League One side at the end of November.

Lewis Irwin is definitely one to keep an eye on. I saw him play for St Neots today and he was excellent, scoring a couple of very good goals. He's big and strong and really put himself about against a physical centre half. Incredible to think he is only 17 and banging goals in at Step 3.

St Neots played Chesham but no sign of Iacofano. A certain Scott McGleish was however an unused sub, a few days short of his 44th Birthday.

Not sure if Joe is currently injured or his loan has finished. He wasn't in the line up for Chesham today and hasn't played for a few weeks.

Appearances 22, goals 17.

I did see him walking up the steps near Sixfields before the Gillingham game, going away from the ground. Maybe, he was just popping back to his car for a while.

The guy is 20 and hasn't made any impact at all. Two 90th minute sub appearances. Compare this with other youth players' ages who made 15+ appearances in their breakthrough season:

Jacobs - 19
Johnson - 19
McWilliams - 19
Toney - 18
Chambers - 18

He's older than all of them and is now playing in the 8th tier. I want him to succeed, and am not saying that at 20 he is too old to break into the team, but realistically don't see it happening. He signed a professional contract in May'17 (2 years?) I'll be amazed if he gets it renewed.

Post by: Joes Sweet Left Foot on December 15, 2018, 21:29:43 pm
To take a contrary view, Jamie Vardy was scoring goals in eighth grade football for Stocksbridge Park Steels until he was 23, before signing for non-league Halifax and then Fleetwood before finally being signed by Leicester City aged 25.

So long as Joe scores goals there is always a chance he will eventually make it at a higher level even if that may not be for the Cobblers.

Watched him play for a few years at the academy/ youth. It's all about opinions but I will stick with mine. I think he will do well. Some players take longer to develop than others and he may be in this category but his injuries also need to be taken into account.

He may well go somewhere else, get a different style of coaching and just "click". I know that Steve morison has been mentioned numerous times, but seriously how many thought he'd go on to have the career he has had since leaving us?
What about Ian Henderson? Couldn't hit a barn door with us...went elsewhere and now scores for fun......versus Tom Youngs who couldnt hit a barn door and could anywhere else either!

The bottom line is you just never know and can't influence what the likes of Joe will do in the future.

Our club has for a few years now been reluctant to blood the youngsters. Even in the darkest days when we were losing game after game, when players were performing badly week after week we did not put a hungry "point to prove" youngster in his place. Young Jay Williams did ok yesterday but i'm pretty sure he'll be back in the wilderness once the establish players reappear.

Give them a go.....give them a few games...see how they handle things. If they perform keep them on and develop them. If they don't then show them the door. I'm not sure how NTFC benefit from sending Joe out on loan to eigth tier AFC Mansfield if he comes back and is still overlooked.

We don't know that.

KC gave him a chance in the Checkatrade game against Fulham u21s. He was given 20/30 minutes - he hardly touched the ball. He ran around like a headless chicken and was eased off the ball by the defenders, he has no pace, and no strength. I would love for him to succeed but numerous managers and my own eyes suggest otherwise.

If we're going to give a couple of games to youngsters like Joe then surely we're in an ideal place to do that now. We're not going anywhere in terms of leagues so there's no pressure within the club at the moment. Player wise we're looking to offload our high earners that haven't really done anything to justify the wages we've been paying them, we really have nothing to lose. If anything it'll give us fans something to get behind for the rest of the season.

Common practice. The league is won and playing men's football is seen as stepping stone to earning a pro contract. They will all come together this Saturday though, for the semi-final of the Alliance Cup. Jon Brady is taking that very seriously and made sure the loans deals included a release clause for this competition.

Also you want to blood the U16s now so they know what they are in for next season. It's invaluable experience.

I haven't seen anything from Joe to be able to put him in the first team up till now, mainly because he is a goal scorer and we didn't create any chances, now we seem to be creating more ( according to all those twitter stats ) it may be worth a punt, he would score more than Hoskins.

It's purely guess work based on opportunities that are out there, but if correct, Southern Prem which is 3 leagues down from league two. This will be a step up from AFC Mansfield.

Joe Iaciofano and Sean Whaler have returned to the club following their loan spell at AFC Mansfield. Will Joe get anywhere near the first team or will he be sent on loan somewhere else further up the leagues? 
Would love to see him get the chance, despite the less than successful intro of youngsters at the Cambridge and Morecambe games...let's see what all the fuss is about!

There was a loan sorted last week but didn't go ahead. Strange one. You would think the player would be desperate to go out, unless he's thinking beyond NTFC. Can't say I'd blame him if he was thinking like that.

Not sure if this was a bad challenge or 50-50 - haven't seen it. On Banbury twitter they show a really bad challenge from earlier in the evening. Should have resulted in a straight red but was yellow. Wish Sean well with this. Hope he makes a full and speedy recovery.

So why is it Keith Curle's fault? I think we've had a few managers before him that also didn't play Joe for whatever reason. The days when you could play a goalscorer who offers little else (Paul Culpin) are gone, just like the days when goalkeepers were judged on saving the ball instead of how good they are at kicking it.

The numpties rambling on about how Joe has been treated need to catch themselves on...

He is on a two year contract...
He is nowhere near good enough for this level...
He scored a few goals at semi pro level in the 7th tier...
Nobody above the 7th tier have pursued him in either a loan or permanent capacity...
We are honouring his contract until the end of the season...
We have allowed him to go out on loan again to try and attract some interest for his next move...

What would people rather we did... Cut up his contract stopping his source of incoming in a hope that another club will come knocking on his door?

Paul Culpin was one of my favourite strikers. Knew how to score and loved a pint. His goal against Fulham in 1988 is my favourite Cobblers goal of all time. A Marco Van Basten style volley past big Jim Stannard!

Curle has said he will not hand out first team opportunities to the club's star youth team for the "sake of it" should we retain our league status. It wouldn't be for the sake of it, however, because he would be giving opportunities to assets of the football club. Ones that could potentially be at the football club a lot longer than he will given the shelf life of managers. Ones that are very good value in terms of wages.

What he's missing is that scouts from higher leagues may see things in our youth players that he doesn't and he is effectively keeping them out of the shop window.

Instead he talks about his favoured senior players and "potential watching suitors", whether this means selling players who have flattered to deceive this term for a profit or simply shifting them off the payroll is hard to determine but any interested parties will have had 3 quarters of season to frame any interest.

Down at Exeter the youth team are mixed with first the first team in training and they have made massive profits on young players that may easily have not seen the light of day elsewhere. Is there something in the water in Devon which makes their kids better than ours? No they are just coached and managed better in becoming successful senior pros.

The serious injury to Sean Whaler may show the potential downside to sending players down into the depths of non-league, there were some very naughty tackles in that Banbury game with the club complaining about the leniency of the refereeing.

Regarding Joe he has one very important thing in his favour and that is being a goal-scorer, notch a couple in League 2 even tap in and your value increased almost with each goal. You can say no-one from higher up came in for him (probably with no facts to back it up) but in reality why would someone from the Conference North come in for a player that has not been given the benefit of minutes at League 2 level?

Again it boils down to the problematic setup of a manager with a potentially short shelf life trying to impose his way of doing things onto a football club. It's like us ordering a 5 course meal in a restaurant we may have to leave in 10 minutes.

Some good points, unfortunately until we are in aposition where the club is looking to the long term and not just survival then we will always be in that position. What I would like to see is something along the lines of the Exeter set up where the Youth and first team train together and everyone at the club has the same goal in mind, not just short term success but a long term model for the club going forward. We need owners and a management team that can see progression right through from a young age to established first team players here and not somewhere else. This is why I think the trust looking at various models of ownership is a good thing as we can look at a long term vision for the club. I would love to see a management team come in and be here for a lot of years, similar to what Dario Grady did at Crewe but to do that we need everyone on board and not just worried about 1 season of success.

Yep agreed and fwiw Crewe operate Category 2 academy on one of the lowest budgets and that is something to look at too. They realise that it is a worthwhile investment because they consistently grow players rather than scrabbling around every year for them like we do.

There's about 20 clubs with Category 2. Crewe are just an interesting example in our league. £4million is not to be sniffed at but it's not just about developing players to sell it's about developing players to play for your football club. Players that give a toss. Worth a look.

They have not had the number of big name transfers over the past few years but now the bulk of their squad is "home grown", indeed they have fielded entirely home grown teams for games in the last couple of seasons.

I know your heart is in the right place, and no one is saying that everything is perfect - far from it donít get me wrong - but what are you hoping to achieve by chipping away constantly at KT and KC on here? I know the meeting is in a couple of weeks but even if that ďgoes wellĒ I donít think itís going to bring about the kind of swift revolution that you are after anytime soon. We can be shown all of the models you like but at the end of the day itís going to come down to cash - where is the money to buy KT and DB out going to come from (in fact knowing how much they are asking for would be a start), if some kind of community ownership was to somehow take over where is the money to rebuild the east stand and upgrade facilities going to come from, pay off KC (I assume thatís what youíre after), provide a competitive transfer kitty for the new man, revamp the youth system, upgrade training facilities etc?

I liked him aswell, and I remember that goal. My point though is he didn't really do much 'work' for the team other than score goals and these days strikers need to work to a team ethic. I'm not saying this is right but this is why Joe needs to adapt his game and clearly our recent managers don't think he has done enough to warrant a place in the team.

I don't think its about chipping away at KT & KC more about wanting someone in charge of both the club and the players who is in it for the long haul and looking to build something. I don't know about you but I am fed up with a succession of managers coming in and out the door. Personally as far as KT is concerned I don't think he wants to be here long term I think he wants to make his money and get out, but if he does want to be in it for the long haul then good. I want someone in charge of the club and managing the players who cares as much as the fans do. I know its a bit pie in the sky but we can hope.

There has always been a shortsightedness with the managers at our club. Are they the wrong managers or is it the way the club is set up? Maybe both?

There have been a lot of scouts attending youth team games this season - more than in previous seasons by some distance. This is measurable as scouts have to inform the club that they are attending a youth team fixture. The league game at home to Stevenage U18s [1st versus 2nd at the time] was the highest ever attendance for scouts at one of our youth team's games on record. I do think some clubs are waiting with interest to see who we release. Time will tell.

KC involves few youth team players in 1st team training. However, the recent reserve game, last week's 1st team/ youth game and this week's U23s game versus MK Dons U23s is, in part, for him to have a closer look at youth team players that would be involved with 1st team training if at a more progressive club like Exeter.

I agree that some clubs manage younger players better than we do. Given the lack of ambition in our club; notably no U23s and poor 1st team integration, playing men's football is the best option available. It is still seen as a forward step towards gaining a pro. Last season, no youth team players were sent out on loan, so the current 2nd years are doing everything they can to further their careers. Real shame what happened to Sean. Always a risk but one that has to be taken. If this injury had happened to a 2nd year it would certainly end their chances of gaining a pro, because that's how the club operates.

I'm a fan of Joe and hope he scores a few at Banbury. Sure he will be successful, wherever he ends up.

I don't think its about chipping away at KT & KC more about wanting someone in charge of both the club and the players who is in it for the long haul and looking to build something. I don't know about you but I am fed up with a succession of managers coming in and out the door. Personally as far as KT is concerned I don't think he wants to be here long term I think he wants to make his money and get out, but if he does want to be in it for the long haul then good. I want someone in charge of the club and managing the players who cares as much as the fans do. I know its a bit pie in the sky but we can hope.

Donít get me wrong, I agree entirely that the whole club needs change but as it stands it looks highly unlikely to happen any time in the near future - we have KC under contract for another year at least so weíve got no option but to get behind him and hope for the best and it doesnít look like KT is going to leave any time soon regardless of any outcomes at the meeting in a couple of weeks.

so is the answer 1?

in 7 years

I think that would be more than we have made on every single player we have sold in 4 years, But they also sold Ashley Westwood for 2million to Villa in 2012.

On top of them you could easily name a comfortable league 1 side from other players that did not go for astronomical fees.

Yes, £6 million for Nick Powell that year.

I get that people are saying "look where they are now"...maybe that's indicative of the fact they haven't sold anyone for money in the past few years.

But for a team that regularly battled for re-election to the Football League, to go from that to playing in the Championship and that they have spent 10 of the last 15 seasons outside the bottom flight must be seen as progress.

How do you find these things out if you don't mind me asking? Not very professional of the pasta server if you ask me (if true, of course).
I really canít say in this case .
Itís a real pity we havenít got an under 23 set up which I believe dean Austin would have implemented .
There needs to be a proper progression with youngsters between under 18s and division 2.
Throwing them in just doesnít work as we found out at Cambridge .
We have a golden generation but it may go to waste because you need experience in the first team and can only blood so many young lads .
There wonít be the same success with next years crop by all accounts and so how do we get the best from these lads ?
Itís a decision from above in reality because it costs money .

Would they get regular first team football at tier 6 at the moment? 
A guarantee of starting with St Ives and Brackley may have been the clincher?
They might as well have stayed with us if not.

The point is that the current manager and previous managers have all deemed he is not good enough/ready! I am not sure of Mathius judgement either on promoting young players. The Hughes episode put me off - if Hughes had more senior players around him like Turnbull and Pierre he might have made a more favourable  impression.

You definitely need a mix. I wouldn't advocate wholesale changes and putting young players under that much pressure. I think we were right to sign a number of the 2nd years but their progression to 1st team has to be carefully managed.

I believe this will happen and itís then down to how KC manages them into the team .
We know you canít play too many at the same time and so opportunities will be limited . Even more so if we start to struggle and I see no evidence that we will be any better than this season .

Negative forecasting of what will happen over the summer, without any evidence to back up your opinion?

"This season has been an opportunity for KC to come in, improve our league position to one of safety, consolidate that position whilst assessing the players he has on the books, those who are out of contract for next season and those that he would like to retain or eject.
Then, based on the budget provided and players remaining, he'll build his squad from within and external wheeling and dealing, to bring in the players to make the squad at least circa 90% his own.
If KC can get his squad more or less into the condition that he would like, I believe that we will be in a good position to challenge for a play-off place or even automatic promotion."

That is my opinion, also without any evidence to back up my opinion, however there is nothing to indicate that this will not happen and it sounds a lot better than your negativity...Ever the Optimist.
