Zander on the transfer list at Mansfield:

Would have him back in a heartbeat alongside Ash.

I make no apologies for calling him a bellend. Respect works both ways and he's never shown us any, from the moment he first took to the turf at Sixfields for Scunny and baited the North Stand, to the half-arsed displays he's put in since he signed for us (on big money I might add).

The most passion I've ever seen from that man at Sixfields was his antics in front of the north stand after he scored for Sc***horpe. He's continued to take the **** in front of the Sixfields crowd since he got here, but more in a wage-thieving fashion. I make no apologies for calling out a big-name, doubtlessly well-paid player who treats us with such contempt.

To be fair, I think Van Veen is a decent player and (like many people) I was pleased when we signed him. Granted, he's been absolutely **** in every appearance for us so far but it seems he has been carrying a knock for that time. Either way, he's only been here for a short time and he's likely to be a key player for us next season, so let's not make him a scapegoat for this whole, sorry car crash of a season.

Nah **** him, let's scapegoat the lazy prick. He gets brought on for 10 minutes at the end of a game and if we score, we're on course to stay up, if we concede, we go down. He then produces possibly the most half arsed 10 minute cameo I've ever had the misfortune of witnessing. I really hope he's not a key player for us next season because that'll mean the wage-thieving dickhead is still here. I can cope with players whose ability is limited, but not with those who really can't be bothered.

Well I agree with 78...I'd have rather had Foley on. That would have actually been a more positive change rather than willingly going down to 10 men.
7  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Van Bellend on: April 28, 2018, 16:57:43 pm
Can we get this lazy feckless **** on the transfer list tonight please? Think I could have contributed more in that last 10 minutes. His continual flopping about like a dying salmon when competing for headers, and casually wandering round the pitch like a lost child, typified what has gone wrong for us this season. Not a lack of quality but a lack of application.

What an absolute c0ck. Bit embarrassing if they've had a 'League One side' all season and couldn't even see out a 12 point lead at the top of League Two. Stanley are not only six points clear of them but also beat them on their own turf...lots of parallels with Appleton's delusions here.
9  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: NTFC next manager on: April 02, 2018, 18:52:39 pm
As those who were posting on here at the time will remember, I thought Sammo was treated very harshly when sacked (he'd actually only lost one of the previous seven when dismissed and although we were 16th in League Two at the time, we were as close to the playoffs as we were to the bottom two. Gary Johnson then came in and proceeded to nearly get us relegated that same season).

That said, I don't think he's the answer. in our current predicament. That team that he fired up for the cup games against Liverpool/Reading and nearly took the the playoffs the previous season was his team - players that either he'd signed, or he'd worked with as a coach before being appointed manager. He was an integral part of the club then, who'd been here continuously in several capacities for donkey's years and commanded respect. Coming back into the club now, he'd be an outsider, legend or not, trying to instil passion for the club's future into players who'd never heard of him before and are probably well aware in most cases that they'll be off in the summer.

The reality is that we need four wins from our last five games to have a fighting chance of survival and I don't think Mourinho could get that kind of return from this group of  players. Our next appointment has to be someone to rebuild in League Two next season with the bones of this squad and ideally get a team together that can compete for a playoff spot, on what will probably not be a top-7 budget. I'd make Mark Warburton my number one target if I was KT but not sure how realistic that is.

Well, this is a meek **** surrender all round. Throughout the club, top to bottom, from board level to manager to players to fans, do you think anyone actually honestly still believes that we're going to stay up? The saddest thing about it is that post January, I don't think we've even got one of the four worst squads in this division in terms of ability.

Surely we want them wearing the vaguely claret one? Tongue

Never knew we had two number 37s... Tongue

Not a bad point, that. In spite of, rather than because of, our esteemed manager though by the sounds of things...

I'm sorry you had that unfortunate experience today Alan.  Roll Eyes Cheesy

Losing Facey handed them the initiative. Up until that point we looked well organised and were keeping possession well and creating chances. After Facey went off and Poole came on, having three at centre back and just Perreira on that right hand side left us ridiculously exposed because the latter has not got the positional sense or discipline to contribute anything defensively. No-one seemed to know their positional responsibilities when we went to three at the back in fairness, but we were particularly lax down the right flank. They were actively targeting our right hand side once they cottoned on to this and it was inevitable that was where their goal would come from. To his credit, JFH did recognise this (but too late to prevent the goal) and made the change that was required, but by this point we were panicking and playing hoofball, not the overlapping style that was creating chances in the first half. If Moloney had been on the bench to slot in where Facey had left off I think we'd have seen a different result. As Shoemaker said, JFH is still learning but unfortunately we do not have the luxury of time so he needs to learn quickly.
16  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Players You Thought Wouldn't Amount To Anything But Who Turned Out Decent.... on: October 06, 2017, 20:37:40 pm
I thought Dominic Calvert-Lewin would go on to play at a decent level (higher than this level anyway) and possibly break into the Sheffield United team, but I never pictured him keeping Wayne Rooney out of a starting line-up within two years.

"We dug deep and saw the game through"..."there's a huge amount of belief that we can take from this"... Grin Is this guy for real?
18  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Who next???? on: August 29, 2017, 22:14:39 pm
Bit of a left-field suggestion and it's not a name I've seen come up so far, but Marcus Bignot might be a shout? Very harshly treated at Grimsby and deserves a proper go at football league management.
19  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Cambridge (H) - B Team / Chuckletrade Trophy on: August 29, 2017, 21:44:14 pm
No

Really? Let's wait and see Roll Eyes Grin The match centre on the website is already labelling this a 'win'...
20  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Cambridge (H) - B Team / Chuckletrade Trophy on: August 29, 2017, 21:40:17 pm
The question is, if we manage to beat Cambridge's second string in a shootout after a turgid 1-1 draw, will we see the clueless one claiming this as some sort of victory? Will that be used in any way to justify him keeping his job past tomorrow morning?
