1  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Dean Austin on: Today at 08:35:51
Not sure it was a ďfantastic display ď or that we were the better side.
I think there is a lot of work to be done.
2  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Bleating The Ewes - Saturday 18th August on: Yesterday at 22:23:44
Who will start?

               Cornell

Facey, Taylor, Pierre, Buchanan

Hoskins, Crooks, Foley, Powell

        van Veen, Williams

I think thatís probably the best balanced side .....
But itís not good enough. We badly need decent wide players .
I agree JJOT and crooks donít work in the middle .
The only other option is to play jjot with Foley and push crooks wide .
3  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Wycombe Wanderers (a)- League Cup First Round on: Yesterday at 22:16:16
Why oh why oh why oh why oh why oh why is Taylor taking our penalties and attacking free kicks?!?!?!?!?!?! Worse than Harry Kane taking corners!!!
Absolutely ridiculous .
He should be attacking free kicks at the far post not taking them .....
Why also play two small lads up front ?
Some strange decisions already this season
4  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Wycombe Wanderers (a)- League Cup First Round on: Yesterday at 22:12:20
Ward did not have the best of games there . Penalties and open play .
Is Ash Taylor our designated pen taker then when everyone is fit and playing ?
Thatís a worry .
5  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Kevin van Veen on: Yesterday at 22:09:29
Its a best guess.

Only tinpot fans would get annoyed about a star striker earning a speculative £4k a week in any case. That must be the average going rate for a good striker in our league?
Itís not a best guess .
And Iím not annoyed . I actually thought it would be more .
Letís hope he gets the 20 because we all benefit .
6  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Kevin van Veen on: Yesterday at 13:09:20
Iím not sure the management team agree that he was suffering with a ď bad injury ď last season .
Never mind , letís draw a line under it and hope he gets the 20 goals he promises .
For over £4K a week ( fact ) you would expect so .
7  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Carlisle United away on: August 12, 2018, 19:24:18 pm
Is this squad really good enough to make a challenge ?
Surely , we have to get a proper wide player in on loan as well as a dead ball specialist .
Facey and McWilliams certainly will strengthen us but I donít think we have enough at the minute .
8  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Carlisle United away on: August 11, 2018, 17:12:13 pm
Itís too early to make judgements or calling anyone out , but I hope these players are now committed to the club and are pulling in the same direction .
Many wanted to leave and i hope the spirit is there
9  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Ins and Outs - Summer 2018 on: August 10, 2018, 13:14:06 pm
I would still say if as has been reported on her KVV and Crooks are on wages of the region of 4K/5K and an offer came in to take them off the wage bill - with the promise of turning the transfer permanent in Jan with a guaranteed £xxxx amount that meets our valuation (which I would guess be less come Jan than it is now as we will be another 4 months further down the line contractwise), all of course subject to us having a suitable replacement in place.

Wigan would have done a similar deal I guess today involving Max Power and Lee Evans   
But no one matched the valuation or wages and so they all stayed .
I very much doubt crooks will go on loan with a view to a fee in January .
The ship has sailed ..... until January .
10  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Ins and Outs - Summer 2018 on: August 10, 2018, 11:53:18 am
Credit has to go to KT for not cashing in on players when the club is up for sale.
Thatís not to say it wonít happen in January though , but they all need to keep performing .
I canít see any of the first team going out on loan to keep wages down .
11  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Ins and Outs - Summer 2018 on: August 09, 2018, 17:03:24 pm
Thatís great news.
Hopefully we can now have a really good season with some players that are committed to this club
12  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Ins and Outs - Summer 2018 on: August 09, 2018, 14:46:24 pm
Itís looking good and happy if it stays as quiet as this .
There is the loan window to pass though which is still a threat but we would be in more control of that situation and only allow players to go if we wanted them off the wage roll.
13  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Ins and Outs - Summer 2018 on: August 09, 2018, 09:34:58 am
Having said that it the deadlines come and go and crooks/Van Veen et al are still here wonít we be left with sulking players on exorbitant wages to carry until at least January - the costs in terms of morale and finances are going to be high.
This is the problem .
You just hope that everyone knuckles down and gets on with it .
That includes players that may have preferred a move and the manager that might have had his differences with players .
14  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Ins and Outs - Summer 2018 on: August 09, 2018, 09:15:01 am
Before B&S answers that - itís 5 that want to leave not necessarily 5 that are going to leave 😏.
[/quote
Ha ha . Thatís absolutely correct .
We have held out so far - letís hope it continues.

15  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Ins and Outs - Summer 2018 on: August 08, 2018, 21:58:25 pm
One more day to hold out .
And if we do , I think we have got a very good chance of a good season .
16  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Ins and Outs - Summer 2018 on: August 07, 2018, 21:44:10 pm
That was supposed to be last week to be fair.
I think you will find the date was exactly right.I said the game would take place on the Tuesday  after the first game for those that hadnít featured on the Saturday .
The opposition changed during the week .
17  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Ins and Outs - Summer 2018 on: August 07, 2018, 15:48:06 pm
So why are you so keen to defend your unsubstantiated rumours which you present as facts. Now you are quoting , knickers, bigger things in life,wait until the the 9th, flustered; best of all 'we might be right, we might not. who gives a flying **** at the end of the day. Reading this tripe and it is tripe gives the impression it is a game for you and just merely self serves your ego and self importance. Cannot understand why you and Boots present your info as fact when clearly from,for example, your comments above they are not.
What have I said that isnít correct ?
Things change all the time but I donít think I have said anything that hasnít been true.
I have never said 5 people will leave although there are 5 that want to leave outside of the second string .
I also never would reveal wages even if I knew that detail .
I donít know threeinabed but his information is similar to mine .
I tell you now , mine is accurate and first hand .
18  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Ins and Outs - Summer 2018 on: August 07, 2018, 13:47:10 pm
All of that has been said numerous times by both the chairman and the manager. Its not inside information, its public information
Errr I donít think I have ever heard the chairman or manager state that he wants to get rid of certain high profile players .
Or that certain players are being made to stay .
I also havenít read anywhere that specific clubs have approached McWilliams .
All of the above are correct .
No I wonít reveal sources
19  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Ins and Outs - Summer 2018 on: August 07, 2018, 11:44:26 am
The point has been made on here many times that there has been considerable interest in a number of our players .
Some like Crooks , Taylor and McWilliams we donít want to sell and others the club would like to move on.
The reason deals have stalled is because of the fee we are demanding or the wages we are paying .
Some players are stuck here because they are sitting on big salaries that others wonít meet .
There is inside information on here but that information changes all the time
20  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Ins and Outs - Summer 2018 on: August 07, 2018, 07:15:32 am
"I've heard he's on x a week". Who from, people on here?! The chairman, the ceo, the player himself??? At least provide some sort of evidence to back up these claims about wages. Is this before or after tax??? I find it hard to believe Crooks is on 4k a week, which amounts to £192000 a year.
You had better believe .
Why else do you think a player leaves Rangers to play for Northampton Town ?
Itís when a player like Turnbull commands extortionate figures you start to wonder what is going on .
What do you think we have paid JFH to leave ?
