There was a reason Long wasnít involved at the end of the season .
He wonít be returning !

Is this another of your cryptic posts or do you want to enlighten us?  Grin

Everyone knows something was going on behind the scenes when Long wasn't involved at the end of the season.

Would people have Chris Long back?

http://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/sport/16232264.Trio_depart_Turf_Moor/

Whilst I think he did well to hit nine goals in an awful team, he also missed a few and there are some question marks about his attitude.

Could we afford him and could Deano make him better? And would he want to come here?

I hope that they are both good enough to get their chance as first team players. Imagine a match with these two being left and right midfield with McWilliams in the centre and Iacifano bagging the goals.
One can hope.

I think there is a chance we could see them all together in pre-season, at least I certainly hope we do.

Harry Toffolo is a decent left back available after release from Millwall, we would need to ship out Buchs (probably no chance) or Bunney (more likely) first though.

Great news, hopefully both will be involved next season.

Have I misunderstood or are you suggesting we'd be better off with a tin of paint and a new fridge for the lucozade than having a new player or paying a higher salary to attract talent?

That's how I read it, that he would be okay with having a smaller playing budget and utilising the money elsewhere (ie upgrading facilities, stands etc).

Some great names available, be interesting to see if we manage to ship anybody out sharpish.

Have the feeling we won't be seeing any incoming until there are outgoings.

Would certainly have Cuthbert, Naismith or Thomas out of that list but would need them to be replacing one of our current crop, ie Thomas in for Van Veen etc.

I think of these were to leave, it'd hardly be a shock: Coddington, O'Donnell, Bunney, Turnbull, Kasim, Bowditch, Van Veen, Waters. Maybe Foley? He left Port Vale saying he didn't want to play League Two from memory.

True, but surely some of them might think they have a better chance of starting in a lower league with a different manager (Bowditch/Waters for example?)

Agree that Coddington should exit if it can be arranged, but we have three keepers if he goes so that doesn't warrant a signing.

Kasim is an odd one, maybe he'll come good in L2? Smiley Turnbull and Van Veen may be obvious, think Foley would struggle to get into another L1 club after being relegated two season in a row? Would be happy to keep him anyway.

Would be upset if we cannot keep hold of R'OD, but if the Cornell signing indicates he is then we still have three keepers (Cornell, Coddington, Goff).

you might want to wait and see how many leave the club first - i think there will be at least 8 moved on - either by their choice or the clubs.

Totally agree, that is why I put depending on who goes.

I don't think we need to shift as many as that, which eight would you be moving on or you think that some will leave (relegation clauses)?
10  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Which players would you like to see the club try to sign? on: May 14, 2018, 14:17:06 pm
Personally I don't want to see a glut of signings, maybe two or three depending on who goes.

I would much prefer to see the likes of Whaler, Morgan, Iaciofano etc getting opportunities at L2 level.

If we don't get rid of too many, we shouldn't have the need for masses of new signings.
11  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Which players would you like to see the club try to sign? on: May 11, 2018, 12:49:52 pm
I think most would like ROD to stay, he is under contract and has been relegated for a club that had the worst GD in the league, so fingers crossed nobody else wants him.

The two year deal for Cornell is an odd one, even as a back up when we have Coddington/Goff and normally plenty of loan options available in an emergency.
12  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Next Cobblers Manager on: May 11, 2018, 11:29:46 am
Still no official announcement and I struggle to see what exactly the "Logistics" issues could be that would hold this up.

Do we think that KT is talking to other options before committing, or is there something else going on?
13  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Which players would you like to see the club try to sign? on: May 09, 2018, 18:37:01 pm
Joel Byrom is a decent player at L2 level and is available again it seems.

Not sure we need him with Foley, McWilliams, JJ as options in the middle.
14  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: NTFC next manager on: May 09, 2018, 08:43:02 am
You guys above can think what you like but I am telling you the decision was made yesterday and itís a done deal .
It just hasnít been announced for other reasons and may not be announced just yet either.
Dean Austin is the Northampton manager .

I'm curious, what possible reasons do we have for not announcing this?

McWilliams, but thought Grimes played very well today and Sammy did not stop running.

Should be a big help to us, as everyone knows, it doesn't get above freezing point in Oldham even in summer  Grin

Great weather for today, will enjoy an evening game in the sunshine if nothing else.

Ricky Holmes will get fed up of warming the bench at Sheffield, and will join on a season long loan.  Grin

I'm going to buy some energy drinks and pringles. Then I'll sit down on my sofa and start the redevelopment thread from the beginning.

I'm at the point now where I don't think it will make a difference who manages us, it will never keep the majority happy unless we are winning the league again at a canter. At the first sign of a mistake or error in judgement everyone will jump on their back and saying we should have employed Manager XYZ instead.

One thing I will say about DA, the football has been a damn sight better to watch than the dross served up by the previous three managers, regardless of what you think about his tactics/substitutions etc.

I would not be unhappy if he was given a go, but agree it may depend on how we perform tomorrow.
