1  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Contracts & Curle on: February 26, 2020, 12:09:48 pm
Agree with Barton Cobbler (above). Curle did the job of keeping us in the Football League now that contract is expiring. I can't see how any supporter now wants more of his hoof-it-and-chase it stuff. Get a young up-and-coming manager with desire and zest and knowledge of up-and-coming players in the lower leagues. It is of course faintly possible that Curle's tactics will scrape us into the playoffs in which case let him continue and see if he gets us promoted then give him his chance to prove me wrong. If he then had what it took to progress I'd be happy for him. Unlikely! I go to games now out of loyalty and to still be part of a conmunity which I value. Our hoofball is dross.

The proximity of Christmas (family shopping) and generally naff weather) usually does knock attendances.

Bowen was a one-off genius who saw the potential in players and worked with it. His achievement was one of football's miracles. We were good enough to have stayed up - that number of points would normally have saved us - but things conspired against us and relegation was a sickening blow. Superb fun while it lasted.

In my diary I have an away game that day.
5  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Kelvin Thomas on: January 13, 2019, 23:58:01 pm
And still no official response from the Trust on these rumours either.
Why should the Trust waste time and energy on rumours?

Judge Hoskins on chances made for others, not on personal goals scored because he has a mortal fear  of actually putting the ball into the net. He's generally worth his place.
7  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Season's Greetings on: December 25, 2018, 12:11:34 pm
Happy Christmas to all of claret persuasion. Whatever we feel in the spread of success/failure, I say let's all rejoice that we're most unlikely to get relegated. I'd have settled for that before our first ball of this season had been kicked!

Best of luck to him. No idea why he gets 'anti' comnents from our fans.

Absolutely pi☆☆ing down at Crawley's ground at the moment.
10  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Away days: Northampton Town v Grimsby Town on: November 26, 2018, 12:41:29 pm
Awful stuff - mind-numbing unless you know the bloke and his mates in which case there may be a tiny bit of interest. Shall I put clips of me online, eating my lunch then going to Sixfields and having a flask of hot chocolate in my seat? Don't worry - I can't be arsed!
11  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Poppy shirts on: November 05, 2018, 15:46:02 pm
Slightly out of whack but any idea why we observed a minutes silence for all those hero's who fought and made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom and a 60 year old Thai billionaire who crashed his chopper with Miss Thailand on board ?

I know most stadiums did the same but and although very sad he has absolutely no relevance to anyone at Teyn whatsoever

I'm proud of my family's efforts in the War and the sacrifice that they made and the game before armistice day is always a special one for me , especially with our own Mr  Walter Tull

Was like,  we're having a minutes silence anyway so may as well stick the Leicester guy in aswell

I sometimes feel we're losing it meaning

Anyway,  it's a broader point than just a Cobblers thing , was just a thought
His age, his nationality, being a billionaire and the fact Miss Thailand was on board are all irrelevant - except what is says about you in mentioning those things. Many chairmen can be mean and unpleasant despite being rich, as we have found more than once. He was generous unlike many rich people and he believed in the wider family of the football community. The fact we're 3 divisions down and a small club is irrelevant - we are part of that wider family of the sport.

Poached by Bowen from Exeter and was a very good right full. Couldn't half tackle; used to take the penalties with a 100yd run up sprint and a 100mph struck ball.
Not always - I remember some were side-footed into the corner of goal with total precision.
13  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: FA Youth Cup 1st Round v King's Lynn Town 30/10/18 @ PTS Academy Stadium on: October 30, 2018, 23:58:08 pm
An excellent display of mature football: they move the ball intelligently, hardly a panic pass or a lump it anywhere from the whole side. Well worth watching - 4-0.
14  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Head Down Hoskins on: October 29, 2018, 23:43:35 pm
On Saturday I felt Hoskins played well when forced into defensive duties. It may be worth using him there in the future because statistically he's a pile of poo in front of goal.
15  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Hold Em Steady (For the Mods, this is about Northampton v Oldham) on: October 28, 2018, 21:49:25 pm
One of the most tactically interesting Cobblers' games I've seen for some time. After the sending off Curle got it spot on and we really should have scored another from one of the quick breaks out of our defensive formation. I really liked how the players stuck to the defensive plan and knew what they were doing and why. And for all those who complain that our fans don't make themselves heard - I thought yesterday was a prime example of how the Sixfields crowd reward effort on the field.
16  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: F A CUP DRAW on: October 22, 2018, 19:24:41 pm
Lincoln has always been a poo place for me. It's an irritating drive. Even in Graham Carr's promotion season we lost there.
17  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Franchise on: October 20, 2018, 19:20:52 pm
Urgently need some decent striker(s) and ball-winning midfielder(s). I thought our side fought well today but the difference in class was obvious.
18  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: NTFC Manager Vacancy on: September 30, 2018, 21:06:17 pm
PLEASE NOT ONE OF THE USUAL MERRY-GO-ROUND! We need a young man on the way up.
19  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Austin out! on: September 30, 2018, 20:50:08 pm
Yep. Austin has gone.
20  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Austin in on: September 30, 2018, 00:56:00 am
If Austin is still here Tuesday he should stand down all those who played today and field our best Youth side he can put out. Whatever the score we woukd all back them.
