Well done to that young man. 
It's a shame that it's taken so long for this to happen and that he has had to make this first 'brave' decision himself, when there will undoubtedly be older and more experienced players who have felt that they were unable because of the (perceived) environment, conditions and possible adverse responses, within the football world.
I sincerely look forward to the day when an announcement like this is not headline news and becomes the norm.

I see what you're saying but the media announce it as though every gay footballer has a duty to come out.
Why? anybody's sexuality, politics or religion are nothing to do with any one else.
Footballers like everyone should be judged on ability, not lifestyle.

Thank you 😊 average age Saturday Rovers age  21 v Sc***horpe age 20.6
Rovers picked their own team and Sc***horpe theirs and someone was in for a good hammering and it happened to be Sc***horpe UTG

Average age of BR on Saturday = 25

Just imagine if they poached Forest Green's manager!

They've been having secret meetings, or was that Meat Ins?

Itís none of your business either ?

Private business between you and Scunny? Eh?

"Nudge nudge Joey"Wink "Say no more Keith" Wink

Jealousy will get you nowhere 😂😂

And who are you?

We're all miffed with Keith Hill's Sc***horpe Angry

This has nothing to do with you Tongue

I can assure you that is absolutely not the case and I don't know how you have formed that view.

Our support has been fantastic this year and the fact we sold out for a Weds night away game is evidence. I'm travelling down from Leeds and my son is travelling up from London for the away leg. As fans all we can do is just turn up in numbers and be loud and we will be.

Good luck and incidentally I think Sc***horpe did you no favours. 

I'm glad you think that way, hopefully Nigel Clough does too and in the interest of fair play and the spirit of sportsmanship, he instructs his players to roll over in the 2nd leg allowing us to win by the exact score we need to win the tie!
Or maybe he's made of the same stuff as Keith Hill. Undecided

Apologies mate, didnít mean anything, just pÓssed at the way things panned out.


Could you have a word with the EFL?  You have a way with Words!! Cheesy

Let's all be honest here, it's a bonus for us falling into the play offs, we now get the chance to play an extra 3 games giving us a chance to be triumphant at Wembley and gain promotion.
This is what football is all about.
As a L1 club we lose £100s of 1000s due to having a tiny stadium and poor 1990s infrastructure which always results in almost immediate return to the basement division, so failure to progress in the play offs would be a blessing in disguise.
So until CDNL gets all the land they crave, sell it and be gone,  better for us to remain ambitionless in L2

I didn't realise you were interested Shocked

By the way Liverpool are complaining they can't get enough tickets for the Champions League Final. Sounds like it's being held in an unprofessional stadium that needs an extra bank of terracing behind the goal, or on the roof? Wink

9  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Wembley Hotel on: May 09, 2022, 15:29:25 pm
I've got a hotel booked for the night before the playoff final, which obviously I don't need anymore.
If any of you guys now want it, let me know.
Good luck in the playoffs!

EFL and FA investigating...  you best hang on to your booking for now Wink
10  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Can I just say... on: May 09, 2022, 15:11:20 pm
For my way of thinking Sc***horpe failed to fulfil a first team fixture, therefore under the rules the game should be awarded to Brizzle with a score of 3 nil.

By the spirit of the law WE ARE UP!
11  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Can I just say... on: May 09, 2022, 10:55:50 am
he definitely set his side up to lose .
There has been collusion in this game between 2 crooks .
The 2 managers were seen talking at half time in the tunnel .
No one , no one plays a 17 year old keeper in a situation like that . He wasnít even a second year trainee .
The pitch invasion had been organised on twitter beforehand and if river needed 10 they would have got them .
it stinks

If all this and the £50k stuff is true, does the EFL know? Is there any way to petition them? Would they even be remotely interested?

If the Sc***horpe results were removed from the records would we benefit?
12  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Summer Transfer window on: May 09, 2022, 09:25:13 am
Someone said in the queue to the beam-back that Roberts has already signed for Ipswich and Horsfall has agreed terms with another club.

Horsfall apparently told someone at the awards evening that he definitely won't be here if we are still in League 2, and would prefer to be nearer his girlfriend in Halifax.
13  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Barrow (a) - 7 May 2022 on: May 08, 2022, 00:13:53 am
Is that except the fact Scunny now get an extra payout for Ryan Loft who Rovers signed from them in January. Promotion for Rovers guaranteed them more cash, handy for them in their position.

Yes I've been hearing about this, an extra £50k to Scunny if Brizzle got promoted. Goes a long way in the National League, this whole thing stinks. Hard to prove though so the authorities will do nothing. Media onside too, hardly a mention in the reporting of the Rovers comeback of the Sc***horpe schoolboys team.
14  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: The are we going up Thread! on: May 07, 2022, 17:59:13 pm
That goal the Football League agreed never crossed the line!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They apologised though, so that's alright!
Unless it robs you of promotion like us, or the title if you are Exeter Angry 
15  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Redevelopment Closer Than Ever? on: May 02, 2022, 11:11:07 am
Well I keep seeing all these plans and ideas that people want to build on somebody elses land yet not actually seen how it's goiung to be financed or even if they've actually asked permission from the current leaseholder if they can even do it and then you get into 'where does the profits go/ who covers the losses if it's a failure?' the people that paid for it? the people whose land it is built on?

Can't argue with that Cool
16  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Barrow (a) - 7 May 2022 on: May 02, 2022, 11:09:33 am
Itís all subjective opinion. The real proof is that we are promotion contenders as opposed to flirting with relegation! In the game against Barrow we were poor and they easily dealt with us! So obviously we have to take them seriously on the day. I do especially after the hammering FGR received from them. We have been prewarned of a difficult game up there!

Quite right, that was the prediction of several posters on here!
As I left the ground on Saturday I was feeling low, but that shows we have to look at the season overall, not one game in isolation.
Barrow won't roll over any more than all the other teams in the division, it is a winnable game though.
We have over achieved this season and still have something to play for on the last day, can't be bad! :)UTC
17  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Redevelopment Closer Than Ever? on: May 02, 2022, 11:01:07 am
Having just seen and read the great ideas being put forward by The new hotel end, it's essential the football club of Northampton keep the ACV from CDNL and let these guys use it in anyway necessary to improve the stadiums  capacity, matchday experience and 7 day business plans.

The football club don't have the ACV the Trust do. If they don't make an offer to buy the land with plans (acceptable to the Council) of facilities having community benefit, within the 6 month period the ACV disappears. So if the Trust have invoked the ACV before they had any plans for the land (as Random seems to say) they are even more stupid than you.
18  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Redevelopment Closer Than Ever? on: May 02, 2022, 10:50:34 am
Who's paying for this?

Spoken like a true Northamptonian Grin Grin Grin
19  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Should The Trust Have Invoked The ACV? on: May 01, 2022, 13:57:35 pm
I can only assume that the Trust have had the opportunity to run the club, or at least be pivotal in its running. Why did they agreed to KT taking over, yet neither they nor the council managed to get a single thing in writing in terms of appropriate reassurances. How come KT was the obvious choice, when apparently we was awash with local business men, lining up to run the club. Why werenít alternatives, more appealing to the Trust brought in?  The argument raised when anyone suggests that KT saved the club at that time, is rubbished by certain Trust board members and ex members. This is because they say that a local consortium was waiting in the wings. WellÖ Why wasnít the local consortium engaged and given the job?

As for the ACV. I really donít care about comparisons in time between the club and the Trust. The club as been winding its way through all manner of negotiations in order to obtain the land. The land that they believe will assist them in running the club and completing the East stand. Of course you can argue about years old promises, but it was always going to be the case that they wanted the land. Thatís been known for years. So nobody can pretend itís a shock. Likewise with the Trust. They have have a huge amount of time to prepare themselves for the scenario where they would invoke the ACV. They have had a the luxury of a more leisurely pace than the club. Because they havenít until now, as far as Iím aware, had the issues of running a league two football club in a completely flawed and broken financial system, where supporters expectations are expected to be bankrolled by the clubs owners.

So now it is a bit more of a level playing field. Mine, and everyone elseís eyes are deflected from the club and now rest on the Trust. Our expectations are buoyed up by the likes of Random reassuring us, that something constructive is imminent. They have had a long time to prepare for this eventuality. Like most, I expect something special. As I have always and still do from the club.

Just out of interest. Have the Trust tried badgering Shoemaker. To see if his ďready to buy a football clubĒ mate is interested in forming a formidable partnership  Grin Tongue

Just as a footnote. I still believe the ACV should have been invoked. Still contingent on what I said at the time. Only in the event that it bare fruit for the supporters of NTFC. I believe any credibility the Trust have, would be eroded immediately if it appears as nothing more than a punitive gesture.

Good post.
This really is time for the Trust to step up. If they do have ambitions for the club and the backing to make them happen, then great, nobody is going to be sniping at them then.
First of all though I think they need to start a publicity drive to get the majority of fans behind them. What is the Trust all about? It appears to many as though it's a small group of friends with buckets, who raise a few quid to buy things like (dare I say it?) TV's for Carrs Bar.
The people I go to games with don't look at this forum, know little about the Trust, know even less about Cilldara and have never heard of the ACV. They are people who enjoy going to watch their local team play and occasionally win football matches. And yes, they think KT is a good old boy who saved us from going down the pan.

So good luck to the Trust and the revolution which will turn us into a vibrant competitive football club, but first of all turn on the charm instead of the snarls and get the majority of the ordinary fans on your side.
Remember, divided we stand, united we rise. UTC

Got my lucky pants on today. Anyone else have habits, traditions before a big game?

Oh Yes, but I can't tell you what they are or they wont work!

I can say that over the years I've had hundreds of pairs of 'lucky' pants... lasted about 2 games each Grin
