Agree...Most of West stand do nothing about getting an atmosphere going..but then again the POSH and IRA songs are moronic...
North Stand is also embarrassing..make it a tenner to get in,
and don't start me on the east stand, even though the atmosphere is better then most Grin

The singing of the songs you mention is what they do! Get used to it! As for the West and North Stands they do their bit; look forward to you joining in and making the atmosphere happen Roll Eyes

Just not true is it! Why do you always try and put a downer on away games? Try it for once!

Yeah Clarkie pull your socks up.

I too checked the highlights - the strike was well inside the 18yd box! It was not dead centre but crossed the goal line
well to right of centre. For once you are allowing your personal prejudices cloud your opinion.

Slight air of disappointment after failing to win against 10 men, but the Imps are a team on fire this season so pretty happy with the point.
Well done boys, another step nearer safety and mid table respectability.

Just about right Pihuan (where did you get that non de plume from?).
Too many 'overdoing' the disappointed tag!  To me it was game between two midfields with our defence really played well and stood up to the bully boy tactics of Akinde. The game was punctuated by fouls and hoofs and not too much quality shown by both sides. Bridges,McWilliams , JJOT and Turnbull all battled well particularly in the second half - thought at times Turnbull looked class. The defence was very combative with Taylor winning most things in the air, Pierre also outstanding and Goode looked class as well. Cornell did not have a lot to do just a couple of routine saves. Buchanan stood upto some robust challenges and let nobody down. Our problem was that Hoskins was the only forward but under the cirumstances he did ok. He did put the their centre halves under pressure but generally he was well countered by a strong Lincoln defence. I suppose when we got on top second half we should have done better but too many passes were too hopeful and often went astray. To me we were crying out for a winger and a partner for Hoskins. Powell did come on and looked threatening but that about all. Morais came on and looked completely out of it; talk about 'flatters to deceive'. I was disappointed that we put ourselves under pressure in the last ten minutes with Lincoln appealing for 3 penalties one of which was ball to hand on JJOT; some of these are given but the referee was correct in waving that one away. They didnt deserve it any case. Big point earnt the 'Cobblers way' - determined and brave team effort. Not disappointed overall at all.

When I was waiting in the bar
Where were you?
When I was buying you a drink
Where were you?
When I wave to you from a distance
Do you see me?
You were standing in a queue
Do you see me?
You had yellow hair
Do you see me?

Sounds a bit like Love Labours Lost

Great battling display, you know that we are on it when you see Daniel Powell successfully slide tackling an opposition player on the edge of our box in the last five minutes of a game.
Excellently taken goals from Super Sammy, a lot of emotional support to him from the players and a great sense of emotion and relief from the travelling support. We were/are all willing him to do well for us and put the final touches to his tremendous work rate and that was reflected in the stand.  He gave their two CBs the runaround all game, they must have been glad to see the back of him in the 79th.
Good performances all round in what was a surprising selection and line-up; in addition to Sammy, special mentions to Bridge who was integral and involved in most  of our play, Cornell for a couple of decent saves to keep us in it (although his kicking was unusually off in the difficult and swirling conditions), Turnbull, Goode and Joe Powell were all not far off in the performance stake. 
JJOT when he came on for the last half hour performed well and made us look more solid, just hope that it's not long before he is fit enough to both start and complete 90 minutes if that is what he is back to.
Enjoyable evening, hopefully Saturday brings more of the same...

Great write up - can sense yr relief at 3pts

After an IMPressive away win on Tuesday, we have another tough road trip.

Fun fact for you all. Sincil Bank is about to become the first ground in the country that I have watched a game from all four sides  Grin

No idea how this will go but 6 of us arriving at a good hour to have a good day out regardless. Certainly travelling with renewed optimism after Tuesday's excellent result.

All you need to do is stand in front and orchestrate the band. Thks

Flick to Junior was a fluke and completely unintentional, I guarantee that he was trying to take it under control or at best flick it on to himself. If it was intentional to flick on to Junior then he really is a genius.
Goal last night, not a fluke... meant to at least put it in the danger area because what else was he trying to do? It would have been more impressive if he spotted Powell at the back stick.

There has been a suggestion on here that he did in fact spot Powell on the far post and his flick maybe was intended for said player. Whatever the justification for/of the scorers intention or not, the general opinion from reliable sources is that it was a good goal. The Video recordings are not sufficiently close up to make meaningful judgement but common sense suggests you (can) go along with those actually there such as the Commentators(incl. Sky) etc. The Video Recordings (some) can be misleading to put it mildly. As the fat lady says its all about opinions if you can call some them as such.

....................................Fluke but intentional

Great stuff Cool -  if only an international player scored that goal we would be hailing him as a football genius.

Fantastic result, and so important to get it at a despondent time. Well done to SuperSam - really hope it can turn a corner for him. Always had the pace and the effort - if he can start getting some end product too then that's great all round.

Its good to see some 'old' posters returning to the Forum with messages of support.
12  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Relegation Watch on: February 06, 2019, 13:02:34 pm
11 wins from the last 15?
75 points ish,
After all its only the bleeding 4th division, why not.😉

So what you are saying 'play offs here we come' ? Am I reading you right? Timmo has a supporter!
13  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: TRANMERE on: February 06, 2019, 12:53:11 pm
Were the commentators watching with binoculars to get such a close view on it then? You seem obsessed with first impressions of goals rather than watching replays. Can you please provide the Chron video with a better angle?

I have no real opinion on Hoskins, and can't remember offering anything negative about him on his form this/last season apart from stating facts on his goal scoring/assist, so your argument of a "one sided opinion on the player" falls flat. I already said that if he meant it then it's sure to boost his confidence which is great for the team.

EDIT: I just saw the video on the Chron site which is taken from the club's Youtube page. The goal highlights are exactly the same as what I provided earlier; no zooming in, different angle etc. You say "How on earth one can make a judgement from a video film which lacked any close up facility is beyond me" yet you are judging the goal on the exact same footage and the herald it as great! You truely are a nutcase, I cannot waste anymore time on you and hope others follow suit!

You cant move on at all can you; always the self justified comments to suit yr argument. The Chron Video was much better quality than you supplied. I didnt herald the goal as great one; the Chron one did!  Then you offer abuse as part of your argument and incidentally provocative patronising comments.

I am glad you edited out your last sentence; the rest of your argument is fine although again you are not prepared to give Hoskins the common courtesy that he actually meant it.  Anyway we all move on Roll Eyes. I just hope KC plays the Chron Star man in a Central Forward position again and not in goal!

Good post agreed

Interesting comments from Fez but I have seen Hoskins put in reasonable shifts on the right wing; however clearly it is not his natural position. Strangely Wilder played in the right wing. Against Tranmere last night he confirmed his natural position as an striker; somehow it payed off; on his own too against much bigger defenders.

I don't agree with that, but Irchy and I have agreed we each have differing opinions and have moved on, an alien concept to you. Why don't you offer your opinion on the goal having seen the highlights rather than rely on radio commentators?

I still dont agree with your opinion particularly as it is based on a poor quality video which you supplied. How on earth one can make a judgement from a video film which lacked any close up facility is beyond me.
I also support Irchys comment on the goal, plus the commentators and the Chron Video which heralded it as a great. As for moving on as you put I dont accept your churlish comments on Hoskins goal; you clearly have a one side opinion on the player and although the evidence is clearly against you simply dig in and at best offer a mild snipe on "alien concept".

My error Dan it was indeed Cornell and I was there too! ****!

Travelled over from my Liverpool home to see only my second Cobblers game of the season and was impressed by a gutsy performance.

Stand out players for me were Hoskins, Turnbull, Mc Williams,and Goode and JJ made a big difference when he came on the second half. Timing of the two goals was crucial in us winning the game and considering we played the whole game without any height up front we managed to absorb a lot of pressure and still managed to look dangerous on the break.


On the minus front we looked weak at wing back where Facey and Buchanan looked vulnerable on a one to one defensive situation. Taylor was caught out a few times dithering on the ball and again on a one on one situation looks poor.


My take from afar based on what I saw last night and what I have gleaned from listening to live commentary from Radio Noddy is that depite his constant tinkering with his starting line up Curle has steadied the ship and is worth persevering with.He has been left with a legacy of poor recruitment over the years since Wilder left and he deserves persevering with.Saw Lincoln play at Everton in the FA cup, Akinde is an obvous threat and Goode looks like the man to deal with his threat, apart ffom Akinde they are a threat from set pieces so we will need to cut out giving away needless free kicks and in this spect Facey worries me I would prefer McWilliams played at right wing back in his place.



Thks for report interesting comments too.
19  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: TRANMERE on: February 06, 2019, 09:35:33 am
Happy to agree to disagree, but will point out there is another player in the box (Powell) who I reckon he's aiming for. If Hoskins meant it and it boosts his confidence then that's only a good thing.

If you meant well simply agree it was a good goal , then at least you will be consistent with the commentators.
20  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: TRANMERE on: February 06, 2019, 09:01:01 am
I shouldn’t think KC is very happy - he was trying to get the sack there .....

You keep going on about KC team selection but apart from selecting Hoskins up front it seemed a reasonable side. It all worked on the night! Please consider clarifying yr concerns?
