Never came across the lad, but hopefully he's just what's needed to score, assist us to garnish the points to keep us safe at the end of the season.
A bit concerned that all our signings are loans, but that does leave the door open to completely overhaul the playing squad in the summer.

Just got home from work turned the tinternet on to see what exciting players we've signed after KC said we need a midfielder and striker and ffs we've another centre back. Sad
7  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: So Many Secrets on: January 30, 2019, 11:02:02 am
Not a personal dig at GeneralCob but his posts tonight have pushed me over the edge.  Been thinking for a while but has there ever been a time when the club was sooo secretive in nearly every aspect?

So as a fan you rightly have concerns about various things but to put your mind at rest you have to book a 1-2-1 meeting with the club chairman.  You also have to pretty much sign a non disclosure agreement as everything said is off the record not to be shared.  You then become one of the lucky ones who is now fine about things and "in the know"....we don't know about what....we don't know if you've just been told what you needed to hear by a silver tongued chairman.  But it's ok he is taking bookings and any fan can book in a private meeting if they like.  What a ridiculous way to communicate with your fan base.

Is the club still up for sale?  Are we attempting to finish the East stand?  Are we trying to do more than that?  When will we hear an update and will it be in my childrens lifetime?  Need to know basis.

Then we have a manager like KC.  Trains at Sixfields, ruins the pitch, because he wants more privacy.  Who's watching your training sessions at Moulton other than a few sad fans with no life?  Someone come down from Morecambe with bolt cutters this week?  Watch a DVD of the last 15 games and you know how to play against us.  In fact opposition managers put away your bolt cutters I'll save you a trip.  We play with wing backs but not in the way a normal team would.  We confuse you by playing strikers or attacking midfielders there.  Don't panic though.  They aren't very good attackers, can't cross a ball and rarely make it back in time for any counter attack.  Also not being natural defenders they won't stop you even if they get back.  There is also a new tactic where we pass it out from the back at goal kicks.  You've seen Man City do it but we are next level.  Rather than the keeper just hoofing it long we pretend we don't know what we are doing by playing risky passes to our centre backs who pretend to have no basic ball control skills.  This sometimes looks like we are panicking but eventually once we have sucked your attacking players in for an interception our keeper hoofs it long up the pitch.  Anyway I don't want to give anymore away as KC told me a lot of this in confidence.

Then we have injuries.  Oh no you are only a supporter why should you get to know if a player is out for a week, month, year, has retired, signed for another club, is on holiday at EuroDisney etc.  Again it's league two football though so keep your cards close to your chest.  Totally screwed Morecambe over by the shock return of Ash Taylor on Saturday.  New club initiative suggestion.  Print Nacho's phone number in the match day program along with some simple Spainish phrases.

Remember the good old days when people had genuine transfer rumours they told people about days before they signed.  I'm not talking about those "in the know" guys who tell you they did know but couldn't say although with KT at the helm that's possibly true.  I'm genuinely starting to think some individuals may have been "taken out".

Post Match interviews.  Remember when the interviewer would actually ask useful probing questions.  Remember when managers would say why they left someone out.  Why they chose the formation.  What injuries players actually have.  Whether they are looking to bring anyone in.  I've given up listening to KC's post match interviews.  Mainly cause it seems KC hears a different question than the one that was asked.  Where's Jon Joe says the interviewer?  I think the young lads have acquitted themselves well today....and so on.

Finally not to be left out the Trust have got themselves in on the act.  So how did the meeting with the council go?  Was very constructive......and.....anything else?  Nope can't tell you as it was a private meeting!  WTF!  OK never mind I'm a member and thought you were representing me but anyway forget that what about the meeting with KT?  Yep was very constructive......and......look he said he was going to kill my wife and children if I told you anything please don't make me tell you.  I tell you what though we have a board meeting next week.  I'll snag you an invite but it's just between us though yeah?

So anyway suggested next steps for the club as you are still far too open.  How about players no longer have shirt numbers and play with a bag on their heads so the opposition and supporters have no idea who is playing.  Imagine how quiet the moaners will be when they have no idea whether it was Sam Hoskins who missed that sitter.

How about not publishing a fixture list.  Create a buzz amongst the fanbase where we have no idea who we are playing, what time kick off is or even if it's home or away.

Or finally what about one for the summer.  Knock down Sixfields during the summer and turn it in to an Asda.  Don't tell anyone though and pretend everything is normal.  If anyone asks just tell them the redevelopment is underway. Unless of course they catch you out by booking a 1-2-1 with the chairman in which case he'll obviously have to come clean....off the record of course.  No problem though as the supporter will come away thinking his season ticket is still great value for a Saturday in the supermarket.

Honesty is the best policy eh?


Good post, one of the best I've read on here in recent times.

Well 2018/19 soon came around!  The Claret Shoemakers IFC are back up and running, and ready for another IFA campaign, albeit in League 2!

Like the actual Cobblers side, we look forward to reacquainting ourselves with the likes of Stevenage, Cambridge, Port Vale et al.

For those unfamiliar, we are the NTFC fans team, playing on Saturday mornings, against fellow fans teams ahead of the main teams 3pm game.

After good recruitment last season, we are not actively looking for new players right now... but if you are a Cobblers fan, aged 16+, who goes to away games and may wish to get involved in the future, feel free to get in touch!

All posts that suggest, or directly imply that a crime has occurred are going to get deleted. I have dealt with some of these guys solicitors before. They will definitely be watching, and they will definitely pursue you. No ridiculous alleged or apparently comment either. I'd steer well clear of it all.     

Totally agree with this, we all know what happened at Blackpool and even though I don't post a lot I do visit the site every day and would hate to see it forcibly closed down.

I'm 60% sure this club will be in the conference within 5 seasons aimlessly because the town of Northampton will eventually drag it down.

KT and his group have proposed multiple options for developing the land around the stadium from retail to offices, distribution sheds etc etc. They have also provided proven funding of £ millions.

The sole blame for this sorry situation lies with NBC and its complete and utter ineptitude.

Glass half empty then  Cry
