Boateng has just scored a cracking goal for Exeter. Let's hope they get promoted!

KT's statement of 'no business case for expansion' is correct BUT only if you are looking 6months in advance!

If you take in the time to draw up plans, get planning permission - from our 'efficient!' Council, get quotes, plan a schedule and then build it, we HOPEFULLY will have progressed and will require a 12,000 capacity stadium with modern facilities.

It concerns me that the statement says more about KT's vision and confidence about his management than our long-term needs.

Beds you need not reply as we know your views!!!

Some players that have recently been released / made available that could fit the bill of what we need and are realistic targets:

Scott Cuthbert of Luton - Powerful centre half
Steve Davies of Rochdale - Big strong centre forward who can finish
Anthony Wordsworth of Southend - Talented ball playing centre midfielder
Jermaine McGlashan of Southend - Pacy winger (not sure if bit past it now)
Byron Moore of Bristol Rovers - Pacy winger
Lee Brown of Southend - Solid left back
Zeli Ismael of Bury - Useful winger
Florent Cuvelier of Walsall - Useful centre midfielder
George Glendon of Fleetwood - Tricky midfielder
Wes Thomas of Oxford - Clinical striker would be excellent in league 2
Kai Naismith of Portsmouth - Quick and direct wide forward
Will Aimson of Blackpool - Useful centre back
George Francomb of Wimbledon - good wide player

And then there is a bunch of talented players available from Boro that we could try to tempt to cross the Nene: Jack Baldwin, Anthony Grant, Chris Forrester, Junior Morias, Michael Doughty, Jermaine Anderson.

Don't be surprised to see at least one of these names pop of at the Cobblers!

I think there is a reason they are released from these clubs. I would set the bar higher!

For me its simple really, no more square pegs in round holes,

We have a good squad, arguable even enough fire power to compete and push for promotion in League 2.

If we are signing players lets make sure they have the right mentality first and suit the system, just because they scored 20 plus for one team don't mean they work for us.

Even the players we have now if they don't fit into the work ethic or ethos then get rid, can't afford for hangers on whoever they are.

Harping back to Wilder days, he just signed good pros who wanted to work hard for the team and when they didn't perform he got rid or froze out until they proved themselves again, Austin seems of a similar mould and wont take any rubbish.
'Enough fire power'!!!???

Can you name ONE single striker we have who you think will get 15 or more goals next season.

I think we need a minimum of THREE new strikers.

Half of the teams within a 90 minutes drive, so not too bad.
7  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Confirmed - Dean Austin new permanent NTFC manager on: May 12, 2018, 16:25:54 pm
I agree with the appointment and the continuity it brings to our club.
With the correct ethos of front foot football then his priority must be at least THREE new strikers to see us over a season to challenge at the top of League 2.
8  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Next Cobblers Manager on: May 11, 2018, 11:32:15 am
Similar the the other old line "IF YOU DON'T SCORE YOU CAN'T WIN"
I prefer this mentality. We have just had 3 managers who emphasized the 'don't concede' mentality AND FAILED. Austin said he prefered to play on the front foot and that is the style I want to watch.
9  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: NTFC next manager on: May 08, 2018, 11:46:54 am
I am now more inclined to give the job to DA (if he wants it!).

CONTINUITY is a major factor we have not had since CW.I believe in League 2 McWilliams and Foley will give a shield to the back four. Therefore the only signings to prioritise are the strikers (at least 3).

Not only did we have a massive turnover of players with the expense that incurs BUT when we had the new players they were either played out of position, with the wrong formation or chop and changed so no cohesion could be gained.

In DA we trust........hopefully!
10  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: NTFC next manager on: May 06, 2018, 03:58:38 am
I am sick and tired of the revolving door for players with each new manager, so I believe now is the time for continuity and therefore Dean Austin as our next manager. He can quickly sort the retained list and get on with getting our new strikers in for next season!
11  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Which players would you like to see the club try to sign? on: May 06, 2018, 03:51:27 am
If we want to win promotion at the first time of asking then we must sign FOUR strikers to give the variation and cover for a full season. None of the current strikers should be in our plans for next season.
The basis of the defence and midfield is in place.

The biggest problem will be shipping out the range of fringe players like Kasim, Bowditch, Hoskins etc!
12  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Which players would you like to see the club try to sign? on: May 04, 2018, 15:44:45 pm
I think we should sign a pacey striker who likes playing in front of a newly developed East Stand, hotel and conference centre, which completes the 12,000 seater (and safe standing) stadium!!!

Nurse another lager please.
13  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: NTFC next manager on: May 03, 2018, 18:47:54 pm
In the calm of midweek I am gaining more confidence in asking Dean Austin to take over for next season.

The main reason is his willingness to play football on the front foot. I am bored of the 'don't loose' mentality of the last 3 managers................I want to be entertained and I was against Plymouth and strangely against Walsall.

Most of the managers who will apply will probably give fans some reservation on them, whilst we know what we will get with DA.

As long as his first two signings are pacey strikers I will be hopeful.
14  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: KELVIN THOMAS ITS ALL YOUR FAULT on: May 03, 2018, 14:12:37 pm
wow.. how nice would it be to see all you suggest in your post.
Is that your wishes or have you been given some clues as to what these lot intend doing?

Im sure if these were made official things would be so much better over Sixfields way😂😂
Sorry not a major scoop just a wish list for whenever we get a definative decision from OUR elected Councillors!!!
15  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: KELVIN THOMAS ITS ALL YOUR FAULT on: May 03, 2018, 12:48:52 pm
I judge people how they are to my face NOT some cowardly keyboard warriors opinion.

KT has been VERY open in my dealings with him and I feel lucky to have him as our Chairman.

I will judge him, similar to a team manager, by results. So a completed East Stand, hotel and conference centre (to generate 365 days revenue), a stadium with a 12K capacity as a minimum. He has already provided finance to the managers to compete. It is just shocking that none of the last 3 managers had the talent to convert it to success.

Sooner (ie next 4 weeks) than later for developments on the Sixfield expansion.

Good piece hamster.
16  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Vote of confidence towards the Chairman and board of NTFC on: May 02, 2018, 09:38:47 am
The point I'm making is KT asked the question and should be praised for that as others obviously did not.

Now is the time for supporters to ask the question our our 'supposedly' representatives on the Council for a definative decision on the leases!
17  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: KELVIN THOMAS ITS ALL YOUR FAULT on: May 02, 2018, 09:25:34 am
To illustrate the facts in football Chairmen face today is the case of Ross McCormack at Aston Villa.

His wages alone (in one league above us this season) is more than the whole of our players and staff put together!.........................and he has not played ONE MINUTE for Villa this season!!!
18  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Vote of confidence towards the Chairman and board of NTFC on: May 02, 2018, 09:19:34 am
'50 people' could have asked the question if they were interested but I do not see any facts to back up that statement.
19  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Vote of confidence towards the Chairman and board of NTFC on: May 02, 2018, 07:33:08 am
As you know EVERY football club is up for sale!

IF anybody was eager to buy NTFC they just need to put the money up front...........I can asure you there is not and never has been a queue!
20  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Vote of confidence towards the Chairman and board of NTFC on: May 02, 2018, 07:03:15 am
POSSIBLY .............easy to post with no facts to back up your comment Beds!
