Football's been sanitised so it's hard to keep a derby going but they are undoubtedly our rivals. The more we play them the greater the rivalry will grow again. Can't see them surviving in the Championship with the money knocking around that league so if we can sustain League 1 football we'll be playing them regularly touch wood.

Blackpool have all sorts of off the field issues and just a few points ahead of us. Be interesting to see how they do in the next 3-4 games.

Nenequirer article about this very old Northamptonian greeting here and Cobblers in the 60's:

Interesting tweet from the BBC over missing millions.

Northants Police: number of people yet to complete interview process and this will continue for the next few months as we prepare a file for CPS..."we are finding further potential significant witnesses

Who in their right mind in MK would follow them when you can be in London in 40 mins?

How much are we in debt but without facilities or assets?

I totally agree regarding the white elephant of a stadium they built was far too big capacity wise, however it seems again people can't disassociate between business revenue streams and the black hole of football finance.

It's a £30m stadium, he's only £3m down. Think about it. How many other large stadiums will you find in league 2 next season and how many will be in the Championship or higher. Coincidence? I don't know, maybe the experts here can explain to me why.

Taking MK part-time and selling the stadium to the FA for non-league and lower league playoff finals etc might be worth considering

Not sure if the club do a ticket re-sale system whereby they can sell any season ticket spaces that aren't going to be used etc.

It used to be so much better when I used to turn up at the County Ground, bought a programme, paid my entrance money, found somewhere to stand, read the names of those who were lining up for us, watched the match, invariably moaned, then went home whilst picking up a tanners worth of batter bits from the chippy, read the match report in the Green/Pink 'Un and then forgot about the Cobblers until the next home match.
Are we in receipt of much too much information now?

Then a quick jaunt to the Exeter Rooms to have it revealed we're a million in debt and close to going to the wall.

Would like to see a £20 walk up ticket available going forwards. £24 is too much and we have to attract the floating fans as well as the ****.
11  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Redevelopment Closer Than Ever? on: January 18, 2018, 13:18:56 pm
Appears a £1.1 million charge has been placed on 16th Jan? Can anyone throw any light on it?

12  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: January 2018 Transfer Rumours Thread on: January 14, 2018, 09:51:59 am
Sheff Utd are small fish to Charlton who banked a reported £11 million when selling Lookman to Everton.

You'd hope one of the smaller Prem teams would take a punt on Holmes with a larger fee.

Shame the Chinese weren't here when Holmes was to leave. Maybe it wouldn't have happened.

Grimes is a serious player.

If we can get a ball winning midfielder to do the ugly stuff alongside him, then he will flourish.

Clearly has the talent.

There’s no denying that el khayati would be a brilliant signing and is exactly what we’re looking for but this looks like one that’s been plucked out of the air (unfortunately). We are being linked with the sublime and the ridiculous at the minute - another that got mentioned on Saturday was a return for Luke Williams but he is far too injury prone for us to rely on.

ADO Den Haag only average about 12k fans so it wouldn't be like prizing a player from Ajax. He would be a great signing but again, not much more out there than a load of Chinese whispers about a player Jimmy happens to have been involved with before.
15  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: January 2018 Transfer Rumours Thread on: January 04, 2018, 12:24:03 pm
I reckon he is definitely on this list. At a guess.

Wot, no Akinde.

We've been so starved of good football that we'll grasp on to one or two half decent performances as evidence we have better players than we have. League table doesn't lie.

Just on a wider level as to the state of health of the club in general.

We don't own the ground.
We don't own a training ground.
We have a half finished, badly designed stand.
We have an out of town stadium with a poor atmosphere which borders on the negative.
We appear to lack players with affinity for the town and a desire to 'play for the shirt'
There is some confusion as to 5USPORTS interest in the club beyond 'educational programmes' in China.
The fans have lost their place on the club board.
The youth team is not pulling up any trees.
The club isn't held in any great regard in the town.

There are clubs from lower leagues who understand the importance of all these things and have better set-ups than us.

Ben Robinson at Burton and Andy Holt at Accrington are good examples of chairmen joining up the dots and helping their clubs punch above their weight

Deal with all these issues one by one and implement a football philosophy across all age groups at the club and things will improve.

Is it as black and white as the players aren't trying? Or could there be other things at play affecting their happiness/morale at the club? Be interesting to know their side of the story too.
20  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Most gutless Cobblers team I've ever seen on: December 30, 2017, 17:29:06 pm
There's rumours of significant changes when the window opens. We'll just have to wait and see and things might fall into some context.
