Hilarious - you and your cohorts continually go on that KT has no interest in the club, has invested nothing and is only in it for himself - and then you actually list a series of investments he has made or sought - albeit unsuccessful but investments nonetheless.

Cobblerwatch - please don't group me with other posters and don't misconstrue my comments to fit in with your agenda.  I set out 3 things on which it more than fair for me as a supporter to comment on concerning our owners and, yes, in doing that i am calling into question the competence of our owners on those issues I specifically mention.

And don't delude yourself that KT/DB is going to proceed with the redevelopment. In you dreams......................

Setting the bar high is fairly easy from the comfort of your keyboard and with la la land financial acumen.

"la la land financial acumen" Cobblerswatch accuses me of!

3 failed managerial appointments - Cost?

5USport including£1+ million loan from Bower's BVI company and legals in chasing the Chinese, legal charge etc. - Cost?

A number of useless January signings - Cost?

RELEGATION!! COST?

Put that in your pipe and smoke it. You may come up with the numbers that suggest financial acumen may be lacking elsewhere.

Meanwhile the club is on the market again.  £1.00 may seal it provided the buyer is ready, willing and able to take on a wage bill that is unsustainable and may put the club in peril (again). Great financial acumen indeed.

That is what is described as setting the bar low which is the problem with much of our support who are happy to be in the basement division of the EFL.

I am struggling to understand those who continue to sing Thomas' praises.  I suggest you stand back and consider what he has achieved since the he bought the club for £1.00 in November 2018.  Three failed managerial appointments, the Chinese debacle and relegation are on my list.  he tells a good story but does not deliver.  It is common knowledge that he is trying to sell the club which shows his commitment to us the paying customers and his concern for our welfare.  He has blown it big time.

No bile just an honest assessment of what has been achieved under Thomas' stewardship of our club.  And not a mention by me in that summation of the redevelopment.  On which subject, I think people are being incredibly naively if they think Bower (it is mostly his money) is going to commit a large sum of money to a redevelopment at a time when they are looking for a buyer.  The understanding Thomas had with NBC on the east Stand is not worth the paper it is written on.  The end of the road for the present owners was the foul up with 5USport and the non-arrival of their fictitious funds.

Have you met KT and discussed his plans? Oh no you haven't the balls to come out from behind your keyboard!

I did sit down with him for over half an hour and expressed my opinion and he outlined the chronological order of his plans for NTFC.

I suggest you try and get NBC to finish what they verbally agreed then we can progress as a club!

I have no idea of what are KT's plans.  Do 4-5,000 of us supporters need to make an appointment with KT to learn of his plans? Alternatively, he could announce them through the media which is pretty good at dealing with when it suits him or even the club's website. Marvellous thing this modern technology.

I think you will find that if KT ever had any plans they are in the bin as his time is being taken up looking for a buyer

Yes, but when you have no plans and no intention of making improvements the result is silence

Spot on, Random.

True, but even a token £10/30/50K would have helped us out.

Needs must I suppose, roll on yet another keeper.

At the very least we should have recouped whatever we paid ROD for his time with us.  

But what worries me is that this may just be the beginning of a sale (or giveaway) of our better players.  Nothing from Thomas about his future intentions concerning NTFC for many weeks. Therefore, we have to assume he is still looking to sell the club.  if that is the case, the sooner the better.

First thing he needs to do is learn to tackle. When he does he may have a future somewhere.

Assuming NBC gets its legal act together quickly we can stop floating ideas about what Sixfields could be with the right backers and level of investment and bear down on KT for hard information on what he intends to do, if anything.  Over to you KT.
15  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Redevelopment Closer Than Ever? on: June 14, 2018, 13:50:07 pm
His excuse for not releasing those plans already will be that the vast majority of his paying customers were totally happy that he didn't. And sadly still are. Thats why he's been given such an easy ride. Even now, a fan fair announcement as to what the plans are (if good) would definitely boost season ticket sales. Perhaps thats what he intends to do very imminently. I doubt it though!

You're right, Drilling about too many wanting, one way or another, to believe in KT but when you stand back and consider his time here I don't think it will be remembered with any great affection.  I am convinced he will be gone before long because he has run out of road. 
16  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Redevelopment Closer Than Ever? on: June 14, 2018, 12:37:58 pm
True, but as I keep saying not an excuse to prevent KT telling us his paying customers what lies in those plans he has kept hidden from us for over 2 years.
17  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Redevelopment Closer Than Ever? on: June 14, 2018, 09:18:23 am
With the Council finally getting off its backside KT is now in a corner with no where to go on the East Stand so he had better come out into the open and share with us his exciting plans for the east side of ground, that is if in reality he has any plans.

The alternative version is that a big chunk of the so-called £4 million has been spent on sub-standard players, 3 hopeless managers and a desperate failed attempt to stay in L1 meaning the money has run out, Bower is saying no more £££ is available and they are open to offers.
18  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Redevelopment Closer Than Ever? on: June 07, 2018, 07:52:05 am
I think our owners stand to make more than "a few quid" from the land they and not the club. hold.  The 2 leases should be merged and/or be placed in the ownership of NTFC and KT & DB will still stand to gain substantially from a sale of their 80%+ holding in the club through Ventures.  We are probably talking about significant sums of money that could be a watershed for our club.  If supporters want to continue to bump along the bottom then continue to make noises in favour of KT.  If he shafted the Council, which is the current theme of this thread, think who could be next.
19  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Redevelopment Closer Than Ever? on: June 06, 2018, 07:45:43 am
Think it's time for KT to come clean with his customers and tell us his plans.

Absolutely, but that is not his "style".  He will keep spinning the story with no detail.  The Council are no better. Between them a marriage made in hell.
20  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Redevelopment Closer Than Ever? on: June 04, 2018, 19:34:39 pm
Fair enough and this indicates you are right but why the hell should we supporters be scratching around for basic information is beyond words.  It reflects so poorly on our owners and NBC. Both deserve the severest criticism for the lack of information and transparency. Yet there are those who rush to defend one or the other. Staggering.
