Which I predict will be seating about 5000 fans in 10 years time when the owner either gets bored or realizes he can never really compete with the big boys.

In some respect Beds is right the rich sugar daddy will take you up to the heights but bring you back down again. The baby steps local sustainability might take you up a level on a consistent basis but never much more - & human nature will ensure the fans are no happier and always want more.

whilst we all agree we should be doing so so much better, using possible failings in the future as a reason to give up and not improve the clubs stature to be competitive in the  division above is a bit drastic. Even if we were to fall back into league 2 after several successful seasons gained from having better infrastructure and bigger attendances, would put us in a much better position to recover more quickly.

....I disagree - Bournemouth for most of the time I have been watching football have operated at a similar level (probably average one division higher than us), similar gates and a smaller catchment area - their rise to the premiership had little to do with redevelopment (the stadium is still a pitiful 12K) but completely to do with a billionaire owner
what we would give for a 12k capacity staduim in which to grow into!
Im not bothered about billionaire owners just small steady amounts of sustainable growth over a few years working very closely with our support base and not wasting any more time being reliant on speculators who are just passing through to make a quick buck for themselves.
These words and sentences do not apply to us... please stop using them... Darlington, stad:mk, Bournemouth, Billionaire and Kelvins nonsensical ' Sixfields is all right for now' 😂😂😂

I think the Bournemouth case is closest to our possibility in this crazy world of football finances but somewhat blows Bed's hard fought case out of the water.........................
We are way short of maximising our potential so therefore losing vast revenues and 1000s of future customers as well as losing corporate and sponsorship monies.
Thats my point and its far from being blown out of the water but even more prevalent than 15 yesrs ago when we first set out to build up the club but stalled badly due to owners more interested in whats available from the council than building up our football club.
Also why are you making  comparisons with us, a team trying build ourselves up to get into and compete in league1 to that of Premiership clubs? There are none.
Keep it real,

I should read his post again as the miss spelling was not the main point raised; which was of course 'mithering'!
Our county council are forced to make £70m in service cuts (the price of a chelsea goal keeper) and the Borough council paying vast sums in interest on a £10.25m loan that went south, so I would hope we now stop badgering them as there's nothing left in the way of free handouts and organise another way to kick start our 15 year long wait into building up our infrastructure and support base.
We need to stop blaming the council , lawyers and legal nonsence, hiding behind it like a shield to deflect the doing of nothing and start moving forward.

The unofficial voice of Northampton town supporters. 😂😂

Are you for real? The 5th last word is very apt concerning your repeated diatribe. You're not from Lancs are you? "Mithering" is a good example, up there, of vocabulary which tells people to give over. Incidentally, you must have used the word "corporate" dozens of times in your rubbish; it's not "corpErate", by the way.
Im glad to see that its only my miss spelling of the word corperate and my being bored at nothing ever happening or even the existence of a plan that has angered you.
As long as you're on board with the main body of my diatribe that has to be a good thing😂

That'll be the same council that you loved and backed... Then got your @rse kicked over.   Grin Grin Grin
I think your confusing me with your dining buddy😉

Season Ticket and match day tickets?
50% increase in everything we do,  food and beverages sales,  club merchandise, non matchday revenues all built up gradually with the full backing of our increasing support base with year on year targets that is achievable and sustainable.
And no mithering of  the poor council for free land and cash hand outs, no long protracted court room shenanigans with expensive  lawyers fighting for god knows what or any benefits that may or not befall our club.
Thomas needs to act in our clubs real interest our move aside,  really bored of his inactivity now.

I can confirm that Beds has become a Spurs season ticket holder, buying totally into their philosophy, following the close of the transfer window!
Players budget - £0
Stadium budget - £1billion.

Right, I'm off to Cumbria!   Grin
My ideal view of progressing as a club would involve a uniformed 50% increase right across the board in all aspects of our club, capacity, attendance, corperate income and subsequent  player budget increase that allows attaining maximum rewards in the transfer market.
 You've been subjected to many of my drunken tirades against the belittlers to know a zero playing budget is not whats required but steady supporter backed growth is the only way to escape the clutches of those who dont hold our future that highly in their agendas.
Some good ales were had in Carlisle yesterday.

I once sat lower central near the  dug outs, a few there believing they should be at the Edinburgh fringe and one can only assume they think up 'witty' one liners all week in readiness, such as shouting '  I shop at Sainsbury's  '  to the Millwall striker Morrison😣
10  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Well Done!! on: August 07, 2018, 06:19:02 am
I wouldn’t, but in the event it happened I wouldn’t have to put up with some tosser trying to get a reputation for being well hard?
Regulatory requirement.
11  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Shaun McWilliams Injury on: August 06, 2018, 21:56:34 pm
I’m not being funny , but you have absolutely no clue .
Was it the bit where I said I was guessing gave it away? 😉😂
12  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Shaun McWilliams Injury on: August 06, 2018, 20:45:44 pm
Any news, the scan was today wasn't it?
He got back up and tried to run it off so unlikely to be a major tear, 2 to 3  weeks would by my guess
13  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: MATCH REPORT: Cobblers 0-1 Lincoln on: August 05, 2018, 18:28:39 pm
We are unable to take advice from a back water club that just spent 5 years  in the non league wilderness😂
You're on a bit of high on the back of a cup run and getting back into the league and fair play and all that, but where our 2 clubs differ greatly is our fans rallied behind our club in its darkest hours and kept turning up through thin and thinner yours abandoned you en mass to a non league fate.

14  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Dean Austin on: August 05, 2018, 18:14:04 pm
True but thats because as I have stated on many occasions our fans are basically gutless. Not for the trenches our lot.
Just looking at the east stand and allowing prattish excuses as to subjecting our club to zero growth.
Dean austins budget was spend by Jimmy late last season and now has to work with what he has and going by yesterdays effort could go onto to have a successful season, top 7 minimum if only he can keep crooks here.
£100k pay rise and a years extention on monday.
15  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: "Things shouted out by the knob head who sits behind/next/near me". on: August 04, 2018, 18:41:15 pm
Think it's time to get this going again. Already frothing at the mouth thinking about the guy behind me screaming 'FOOOOORWARD' followed immediately with 'GET EET ON THE GREEEEYND'.
greened? Grained surely? The over exageration with the 'e' instead of the 'a' as in tayn is lost on me😂
Lets lose the e 😙

You honestly believe that. "A holding option". We are in a holding option according to you and beds and a few others already. You state that you are unhappy with stagnating, yet advocate the very definition of it.

If you let supporters run our club, that's it. It becomes a hobby. There is no way it will progress and certainly no way they will let it out of their hands. Of course you'll get all the best intentions in the world. But I would argue that for different reasons when all new owners come in.

There is not one single person on here that doesn't want the club to progress. Yes there's a few who believe they have the monopoly in that particular area. But overall we all want the same thing. But we are a matter of weeks a away from the club being either a viable alternative, or for KT to just get on with it. I don't give a flying fcuk about what come before that. That is of very little use to KT or us. It's just the same empty cans rattling away.

I am more than happy to hear about any fan owned clubs in this country that are progressing at a recognisable rate.

Even more important, we are a couple of wins away from burying the whingers in their own misery. I'm not happy about looking across the pitch at CARDOZAS mess. But to be honest, it didn't seem such an issue when we were romping the league. But last season it looked huge  Grin

We haven't progressed one jot under kt and that east stand became kt's baby the minute he claimed he had resources and plans 3 years ago and nothing happened.
He appeared on face book shaking like a s***ting dog blaming all and sundry for council delays and legalities that have been in the hands of the lawyers for what seems like eternity.
You suggested something is about to give in two weeks time? Have you been luncheoning at 6fields towers again? Go on tell us what you know😂
17  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Redevelopment Closer Than Ever? on: August 03, 2018, 08:59:01 am
And what has brought you to that conclusion?
When they got Adam wyatt (Ian beal from Eastenders) to cut the ribbon at the official bog door opening ceremony....This.

On the other hand should KT stay and develop the ground I'm very curious as how you will react to that news - gracious and conciliatory I hope........
Sadly, having hung on to his every word, body language  and actions in regards to being the man to unify the club with its supporters, the trust and the public of Northampton in general to help build up the club in a steady sustainable manner in order for us to escape the continual mothballing.
Sadly not one thing gave me any hope of him having any inclination to oversee growth especially in light of his most recent relevation as to his wish to spend more time living in the US.
I would've loved them to have had a working plan that showed steady growth that didnt require them to spend a single penny of the profit made from picking the club up for a song.. but work with the above aforementioned to make things finally happen.
3 long years tells me its not ever going to happen with this lot.
19  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Redevelopment Closer Than Ever? on: August 02, 2018, 12:49:21 pm
Generally I agree with you, ordinarily moving from using jumpers as goal post on the local field to a professional setup like we have now shouldn't be a huge thing, but it is a huge step forward for us as a club from where we were. I was just trying to point out that under KT we have progressed off the pitch, just not as much as we all would like.
I saw it as excessively over egging things to hide true intentions and that is do nothing but give the impression.. Well thats how I read it 3 years ago and now have fully convinced myself🤣

14   Northampton Town   Northampton Town   134.099   23   5.830
15   Peterborough United   Peterborough United   130.387   23   5.669

So nearly 4,000 more people watched football at Sixfields last season.

Any other Trump-esque "factual statements" you want to make?
Now this is where we differ as people, I look at that and see that had we an extra 4000 capacity making the stadium more attractive to visit abling more visiting supporters and having professional corperate facilities as seen at nearly everywhere else, including  other 7 day revenue raising schemes, we could've had 20,000 plus more supporters than Peterborough and it being us trying to keep hold of Edwards Maddison and marriot or selling for multi millions and plotting a league 1 promotion campaign...
Where as you see weakness and failure in other teams as a reson to give thanks for small mercies and praise those keeping us subjected to water treading without a future plan.
