A lot of the time neither are required. You just have a T junction on the minor roads. Drove to Cromer the other day and the number of roundabouts is bonkers.

Yep, I have to say, having come back to the Teyn last weekend for the stock car racing, the traffic is shocking!
Glad I live in the sticks now but doesn’t stop me missing the Welly Rd, Sixfields, Motor racing and of course my mates from Northampton.

There’s still far too much polarisation of opinion. The trouble with that is any genuine issues slip under the net.

With the ‘We Want Answers’ campaign it couldn’t have been more obvious that something very dodgy was going on. Yet there were still people handing out abuse to tell fans what a great soul our Dave was and to leave him alone. I never quite got that as he was never the most charismatic person. There was no space left for rationale discussion….after all, they were just questions on a leaflet.

Be interesting where the likes of Shwarmee were at the time on the challenges?

I think the tact and approach of the Trust is pretty indefensible. Getting in with the likes of John Morgan, who clearly can’t communicate in a manner that is going to get you anywhere. If you are looking to antagonise someone then great! They did however have the platform to represent the questions and concerns of certain fans. I know they will continue to blame KT and co for never wanting to engage, so it all leads nowhere.

The biggest pressure KT will face is if we are fighting for L1 survival and Max Dyche is up front. Or worse still that JB bails out. Then if the East stand is static with warehouses flying up everywhere.
KT also has the big advantage of not misplacing £10m of council money.  Tongue
KT is good with his words, he IS charismatic and I’m sure he’ll keep the majority of the fan base onside.

Open and honest Dav, I’d been in the Trust and had been closely involved with Cardoza in designing, agreeing and putting out our first ever fab vote for a kit choice.
So, being as I’d had discussions with him and his wife on a few occasions going through that process, I’d found him to be a reasonable bloke.
Sometimes uncomfortable in terms of a lack of conviction or confidence, which may suggest a reason why he was rolled over by his team of bandits.
That said, I have a weakness in trusting people on face value and that was a mistake with him.

Maybe I’m heading down the wrong path of Trust again with KT, but until I see concrete proof that he’s committed a crime, I see a bloke who’s taken us up 3 times whilst fighting legal spaghetti and global economic issues.

Tel and Melly know me … I’m a good guy but on that occasion I got it wrong.

Yes of course they secured the shares back legally on paper.

To make it worse lifelong supporters such as yourself and Glen etc have totally condoned such action, failing to learn lessons from the previous owners


Aww thanks for the patronising mention Delboy.
Have you or your old school board members not learned that you’ve burnt your bridges with the club and the vast majority of the fan base?
Have you not learned that humility often wins hearts?
Have you not learned that apologising for damaging  actions not approved by the fans you claim to represent might begin to rebuild a currently irrelevant body?

A judge gave her ruling.
I guess the fact you dispute the legality of so much of the clubs owners actions that you probably dispute the ruling of the court?

Look fwd to seeing you at an away match again soon 😘

Members of the trust claimed that getting into bed with a property development firm was to be good for the club as well before they got screwed over themselves so i dunno I'd be taking their word for much tbh

And to think the only time I’ve ever been threatened with legal action was when I suspected that an advisor was advising a company suspected of attempting a land deal that was in cahoots with a body of people that were claiming to be helping a sports club 😂😂😂😂

As if I had abuse threats for that load of nonsense 😇

Shwarmee, I very much hope you are right!

You may have to check with Marvo regarding the statistical chance of that happening, however I can definitely confirm news regarding the stadium is coming soon...

Talking of the future, this reminds me of something. From 4.50 Is this you?

That’s Phil Chard mate 😂
None of those guys are me although I was there, my banner was the Fight for it hand made job that the Trust chose to use for their front page of their website.
Great day that was….
As for the plans…. Apparently my weakness according to some associated with the Trust, is that I trust people too much…. Oh the irony right.
I’m in the trust your word camp on what you’ve said and am excited to see what is in store!

Blimey there’s some proper “ my rumour is better than your rumour “ squabbling on here today isn’t there?
Does somebody need to sit on the naughty step for a few minutes?
🤦🏻‍♂️👶

The location hasn't changed and the enterprising opportunities are still very much abound.

Lets face it despite the endless opportunities Sixfields provides the stadium has been beset by issues since day one and why as you have correctly pointed out we are where we are. Fortunately for the area, the football club and its supporters a unique, exciting and modern solution is coming in a few weeks time.

Nothing is gone, in fact the very opposite. For us the opportunity is absolutely still there and we intend to smash it out of the park!

Champions….. next season 🤣

So again I ask, what was worse about their away fan zone than ours?  cos it looked a safe place, at least you didn't run the risk of being run unlike at Sixfields.


Being run?
Wow…. What an observation.
Care to expand ?

Oh and by the way, I don’t think an umbrella made a great away fan zone.
Hence I drank on the Bath Road which was wonderful thanks.

As for my direct line to KT …. The option is there for you as well, same contact.
I guess you just burnt your bridge right?

9  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Cheltenham Away (26th August) on: August 28, 2023, 12:26:57 pm
Disappointing that we are only 13th in the table, think where we could be if we had some division 1 quality players.

 Grin Top 🎣

You heard nothing, it was a total lie just made up so you can have a go at the Trust and me as per usual Glen

Just like you have done for years and years, just like before when you backed DC right up until the last second, constantly sniping at the Trust then

think it was £5.50 cheesy chips and a bottle of water was £2. Remind me how much is a bottle at Sixfields?

I have no idea what away fans can buy at Sixfields inside the stadium, i know we still have 2 crappy like boxes to sell from, exactly the same as when it opened 25 years ago plus.

So again I ask, what was worse about their away fan zone than ours?  cos it looked a safe place, at least you didn't run the risk of being run unlike at Sixfields.






Oh brilliant, you’re telling me what I heard.
Your factual Statements get better every time you bite.

I don’t care about the away fans fan zone, just our facilities, built within our owners business plans…but when did away fans zone become a thing?
Anyone but the current chairman remains your modus operandi and you’ve still to admit you were wrong to back a business that could damage the club….. factually proven in a court of law.
Crack on …..
You won supporter of the year once….
I did too by the way, maybe came second but it doesn’t grip me like it does you 😂
11  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Trust reps at Cheltenham to see their fan zone? on: August 27, 2023, 15:53:48 pm
Bhyll dont let Glen wind you up.  You know how much of an agenda he and his buddies are on to discredit anyone and anything that they / KT doesn't like.

Not sure why he is going on about the away fans village / Trust although would like him to explain why it was s*** and then perhaps take a look at how that compares to what we offer away fans.

Enjoyed my cheesy chips and the food done a roaring trade, be interested to see how their F&B turnover compared to ours on half our crowd.



Brilliant nibble you sensitive little souls
The chips were great at £5+ … imagine if our club has charged that amount!
As for my agenda… it’s simple.
A fresh board with nobody on it that was involved in the soap opera they backed..
12  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Trust reps at Cheltenham to see their fan zone? on: August 27, 2023, 15:48:47 pm
Never let the truth get in the way of someway to slag off the Trust  Wink

Again I didn’t slag off the Trust I observed that Derek was there and I’d heard the Trust was there to compare facilities.
Blimey… snowflakes in August
13  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Trust reps at Cheltenham to see their fan zone? on: August 27, 2023, 15:46:50 pm
Are you going to criticise any other fans for attending or just the one ?

Dammed if you do, dammed if you don't  Roll Eyes

Nobody criticising I’m just wondering what the Trust view is on the facility vs what we have?
Predictable nibble though…
Minimal maggots required
14  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Trust reps at Cheltenham to see their fan zone? on: August 27, 2023, 06:16:35 am
I heard that the Trust were at Cheltenham yesterday to see what a good fan zone looks like!
Shouldn’t have bothered, it was pathetic!  Grin
Still, great to see supporter of the year 1976 Random supporting the cobblers at an away game….
Putting cash into the clubs coffers is always a sign of a great supporter 🤣
15  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Cheltenham Away (26th August) on: August 26, 2023, 20:03:24 pm
Also I do not like those socks with our electric peppermint kit.

I have it on good authority these were temporary as the supply of socks to match didn’t match the speed at which the rest is the kit were supplied.

Minty minty….
16  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Cheltenham Away (26th August) on: August 26, 2023, 18:12:43 pm
Could be a relevant and important goal, unlike his others
How were any of his goals irrelevant last season? Or this season for that matter?
17  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Cheltenham Away (26th August) on: August 25, 2023, 15:12:53 pm
Bank holiday weekend.£26. Played Cheltenham many times. Cobblers fans are festival goes.Late summers  holidays. Small fanbase. Not going again until the East Stand is built. All the excuses I can think of.



Witcombe Festival is on all weekend in Gloucester with Rag n Bone man headlining Sunday night.
Also in Gloucester this weekend, the whole city is going retro with bands of all decades playing all over the Quays and surrounding pubs.
Ten minutes on the train to Cheltenham if you fancy a nice walk round with some real old skool boozers and music!

Alright all!!!
I’m after a small favour please.
My nephew in law is lead guitarist for a fast emerging artist called Laurie Wright.
They’ve been playing together for seven years through lock down etc trying to make a living and have finally saved enough to release a studio album.
It’s rock n roll punk and has been getting great audiences as recently as on the Isle of Wight Festival.
Please download it even if you don’t listen…. They’d really appreciate it.

I’ve always enjoyed a trip to Cheltenham. Quick stop for a pint and something to eat in Burford on the way. Looking forward to it..

Looking fwd to this one mate!
Living in Gloucester these days as you know but I’m actually dog sitting all week for friends in…. You guessed it, Cheltenham.
So , for the first time ever, I’m walking to an away game.
Can I strongly recommend to everyone who likes a good selection of beers that we meet at The Exmouth Arms on Bath Rd?
It’s so much nicer than the shopping area of the town centre.
If people don’t want to walk that far, I suggest a walk to Montpellier where there are equally nice pubs including a lovely All Bar One.
GlosCobbler…. If you wanna meet the other GlosCobbler I’ll be at the Exmouth from 11am after I’ve been out for a bit of downhill craziness on my bike up Leckhampton and Birdlip hills early doors!


Shoe aaaaaaarmy!
