I was merely concerned that you felt compelled to comment on something that you clearly disapprove of.

I was worried about you James... Never, no more again.  Cool
I do welcome your concern Tel, but I'm afraid you'll have to forgive me for only waiting until page 1,139 to agree with someone that we've perhaps gone round in circles. Alas my patience isn't quite as good as it used to be when this thread started six years ago.

Of course, I'm also acutely aware that this 21st post of mine will act as sufficient fuel for another 1,139 pages. And you'll have to forgive me for that as well Wink

You have a very strange way of exhibiting your disdain... By added fuel to the fire.  
The 20 posts I've made on this thread so far this calendar year are a drop in this particular ocean Nigel. Pretty weak fuel I'd say!

after holmes and adams - it was d'ath and potter

both were utter dogs***
D'Ath was a good young player who like most young players was a bit hit and miss. But he had talent and gave it his all, he was certainly nowhere near the level you make out.

Over the moon to see we are still going round in circles on here.
1,139 pages. It's pathetic isn't it Grin Grin

I have never had an issue with a club run by the supporters, or even a Trust. But there is nowhere near the type of experience the club would need within the current Trust.

Having said that. If it is about the re-structure of the board room along with appointing key personnel, then fair play.
It would be the latter I think, that's how it worked at Wycombe from my understanding.

So basically if you get rid of all traces of red the kit is ok.  Grin


Pretty much yes Grin

The middle aged white men quip is by the by. The important thing is the role, focus and processes. It's a chicken and egg thing, the trust needs dynamic people to drive it but dynamic people won't be attracted to a marginalised entity. That is why board status is crucial.
I don't see it as by the by at all. Uninformed posts such as that one which go unchallenged paint an unfair picture of Trust board members, which in turn potentially puts people off joining.

With regards to the process you talk about, I agree it's a chicken and egg situation. At some point though, some new people need to come through and break that cycle.

You need to take little steps before taking a massive one. You raise the point about people not being attracted to a marginalised entity. I would want to be joining it at that stage to help it improve in any way that I could so that it becomes more than that. The dynamic people you refer to will want to join and help shape that vision from the ground up, they wouldn't be sitting around twiddling their thumbs.

First time this year where I won't have done a single pre-season friendly. I think when I saw Sileby had been moved to a Tuesday evening I knew this year wasn't for me!!

Even if it is a Nike template one, the home shirt is very nice.

And after finding the away one an abomination on first sight, it actually looks better when they ditch the red shorts and socks and go all yellow.

Speaking as a now former member of the Trust board, I think that any potential valid criticism of the Trust has always been buried deep within the majority of the total nonsense that is spouted about it.

Writing things such as 'they only appointed middle aged white men' is just complete bulls***. For as long as I can remember, anyone who has wanted to stand for the board has been elected unopposed or co-opted onto the board. I wouldn't dream of making stuff up like that to try and score a point, but it seems par for the course on this forum nowadays.



11  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Court Case on: July 06, 2018, 13:38:55 pm
Don't sound much like a "we took our eye off the ball" apology to me.

It's the Chron mate... We expect it to be late, inaccurate, plagiarised etc 
I'm simply using my experience in the sector that we're talking about to explain why these things aren't quite as cut and dried as people think.
12  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Court Case on: July 06, 2018, 11:35:41 am
Any idea why the Chron is not reporting on the Court Case between NBC & The Cardoza's?
Its being reported on on Radio Northampton.

It was mentioned on the Radio yesterday that Cardoza Senior said the trust knew about his £2m loan to the club and he was just taking his money back
Think it's also worth clarifying what local BBC reporter Matt Precey actually said about the Trust from yesterday's proceedings. Here is his tweet:

Morgan: Supporters Trust had car boot sales to raise club funds, ‘busting a gut’ to help out NTFC. But their rep wasn’t told about Anthony’s director’s loan repayments. Break for lunch.

He is 4 days late!!
You do realise that court cases aren't as simple as you make out. For one, local media won't receive court lists from Birmingham, so it may take a while for the news to filter through. Secondly, how do you know that any person tipping off the local media didn't tell them that the first three days were boring procedure? I've attended trials where whole days have been dedicated to determining the smallest of legal details, none of which are relevant to actual reporting of cases.

It doesn't appear that we've missed any testimony from what I can see, but in any case local media could apply for transcripts from the first three days to scrutinise as to whether anything substantial may have been missed.
14  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Redevelopment Closer Than Ever? on: July 06, 2018, 10:57:00 am
You would have thought this was a major story but it isn’t being picked up by local media at all .
A strange thing to say bearing in mind we all know about it from a local BBC reporter Grin

Chron reporter Paul Lynch is there today.

Hopefully, does anyone know why there appeared to be no information on court days 1, 2 and 3?  This is mentioned as the 4th day in court.
A few theories here. One is that, frankly, the first three days may have been boring procedure of very little interest to anyone. A second theory is that there may be reporting restrictions on certain aspects of a trial which can't be reported in the media. Third theory, the local media may only have enough resources to go to one day of the trial. I wouldn't pretend to know which one it is.

No he isn't going to rip us off directly but he isn't taking us forward either,  Trust have gone totally quiet again, very disappointing.
They haven't gone quiet, it only came to your attention today Grin
18  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Redevelopment Closer Than Ever? on: June 14, 2018, 11:52:57 am
James Averill from the Trust covered the meeting. From his Twitter

"Cllr Tim Hadland: "There have been statements that this sort of paperwork was stopping the redevelopment of the East Stand. Am I correct in saying there is now absolutely nothing to stop the development of the stand?"

Council leader Jonathan Nunn: "Yes you are correct."


Should point out now that I'm no longer on the Trust board as I stepped down ahead of taking on my new job - which is covering all the council meetings.
19  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: NTFC FOR SALE on: May 25, 2018, 15:36:06 pm
Cardoza has a lot to answer for on so many fronts. But for me his lasting legacy will be the obvious psychological impact his actions have had on some of our support.

We have a council that is imploding. It has thrown away nearly 80 million pounds of public money. Of which 12 million was handed over to DC. 16 million was ring fenced money for health. 52 million on building that they are now on about moving out of and leasing. With auditors finding bent deals left right and center, with clear suggestion that further criminal investigations will follow. And the first port of call for some on here not to trust, is KT.  Grin Grin
Worth clarifying, as I have seen this mentioned a few times now from various people.

It is Northamptonshire County Council that ordered a section 114 (i.e it has gone bust) and has since sold its HQ. It's Northampton Borough Council that is responsible for the loan and the East Stand redevelopment. They are two different authorities.
20  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Which players would you like to see the club try to sign? on: May 18, 2018, 17:32:12 pm
Nicky Law and Tony McMahon have been released by Bradford.
Always been impressed whenever I've seen Law, and just the kind of centre midfielder we could do with in League Two. Would gladly take him.
