1  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Crawley Town (h) 16th February on: Today at 11:53:36

Interesting that we have scored the most goals from corners for any League Two side this season, 10 in all. That stat surprised me. I never saw that as one of our strong points, certainly not seeing us as a set piece side like the old Ian Atkins teams.
Are you sure you're not including the opposition goals when they break from our corner and we have only left one back !!
 Seriously, I'm struggling to think of any goals we have scored from corners, did these figures come from the same place that had Sammy as the best striker in League 2.  Grin

I did not use players who were not contracted for next season, except Goode and Cox who I would sign.
Quite surprised that Cox features for most, we've only seen him for one and a half matches and there's a rumour that he's out for the season, I heard that after the Cambridge match

One of the best of all time. Gordon Banks of England has died aged 81. R.I.P.
I met him awhile ago and he was a really nice man, no airs and graces. RIP Gordon.

Many will know already and have booked up but just putting it out there...

London Midland trains direct from Northampton to Crewe (albeit stopping everywhere in-between, including Kinsasha I think) £15 rtn if booked in advance. Arrive into Crewe, basically 10.30/11.30/12.30 and so on.
737 initial allocation but know loads and loads already booked up on trains...good to take a thousand or so!
Where are these tickets Rob, I can't find them?

For those worrying about what will happen when we get to the Championship, it's been 52 years since we were last there and I think we are as far away as we've ever been at the moment !   Roll Eyes
7  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Views on Keith Curle on: February 11, 2019, 12:33:43 pm
If the season had started started at the start of october when Curle started, we would currently be just outside the play-offs in around 9-10th. That considering we kept the majority of a failing squad and have since got rid of our 2 best players is quite a decent start. Im happy with what he's done so far even with some baffling decisions/the odd negative set up. After 21 games next season is where we should see how good/bad a job he has done with more of his own team.
He has still got a bit to do in my opinion, two decent away results haven't wiped away the memory of the Colchester performance, of which I think KC has to take a fair proportion of the blame
8  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Lincoln away on: February 10, 2019, 20:53:08 pm
That’s away fans for you Rog, they’re spiteful and not to be trusted. Keep away from them and play with your old friends.
9  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Lincoln away on: February 10, 2019, 14:30:55 pm
What a strange club Lincoln are, probably summed up by the one who posted on here. A couple of posts were quite sensible, like you could be chatting to an away fan in a bar, and then he posts some utter cr*p about NTFC stealing £10M from the council and we were the 2nd worst team to play them after drawing the game, hope them grapes are not too sour!.
      Lincoln have really got all the locals "on board" so the club must be doing some things right but, as KC pointed out, their management are really aggressive with trying to intimidate the officials and, as well as some decent fans, I still think they have more than their fair share of tw*ts
10  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: A Lincoln fan's view on: February 10, 2019, 00:07:30 am
Difficult to believe anything in that report after he describes our goal with "Aaron Pierre rose highest from the corner"  Huh?
11  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Lincoln away on: February 08, 2019, 19:37:34 pm
Same to you - it is a whole new world here now ...once we put 8 past you (again) tomorrow I wish you all the success as yours is a proper club with (generally) decent fans....little footnote a good mate of mine went to every match home and away for 4 years in the early 80s EXCEPT the 8 nil against you and the 9 nil win against Bournemouth !
Did you beat us 8-0 you haven't mentioned it MUCH !!!! Anyhow, how many times have you been relegated to non league ? Wink
12  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: TRANMERE on: February 08, 2019, 10:10:20 am
I think it was 2-1  Grin
13  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Lincoln away on: February 08, 2019, 00:15:12 am
Guess it is nearly time again for the meltdown harking back to the goodoldbadolddays ...Barton are you coming for that beer ? I see you have given us back 2/3rds of the away stand so presume only 4-500 coming ? Hopefully the volume will crank up enough for you :-) Good result in midweek - we love anyone putting one over the Trannies ...Hoskins made a mug of all of your pre-match worrying about him being selected. We have 88 home tickets to sell so should be a fullish house.  If you are over early for beers then the Square Sail on the Brayford is good for cheap beer and food plus away-fan friendly.
I'll be there, like I was for the Cup game, loyal fans us lot, not bandwaggoners ! I didn't see any trouble from your lot at the Cup game which really is a refreshing change. We are stopping for a few beers before we get to Lincoln but I'll be in the bar near the away coaches for the last half hour if you want to buy me a beer  Smiley

PS You're not the first club who's attendances go up when you're winning and you did have more than your fair share of ars*hole fans. Note I said "did" 
14  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: All new NTFC Trust Club 500 (December winners) on: February 07, 2019, 15:56:00 pm
The January 2019 winners are Katie Newberry of Delapre, Northampton (£200) and Martin Simmonds of Duston, Northampton (£75). Congratulations, your cheques are in the post.
15  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Euro lottery winner on: February 06, 2019, 16:15:31 pm
Unofficial wages for last season, there seems to be quite a gap between Leagues 1 and 2
16  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Euro lottery winner on: February 06, 2019, 10:09:53 am

However, I think 2m as a budget is way below what is actually needed.

Sad fact - I once did a bit of a spreadsheet on how much I thought it would cost, just to staff playing staff and management/backroom staff and that alone was close to £3.5m. That didn't include on-costs.
I recon the playing staff & management are hoping you win, I think our wage bill is closer to £2M and that was pre transfer window. I think the average League 2 budget is around £1M and we were around the £1.2M mark before the "Chinese money".
17  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: January Window - Rumours, Ins and Outs on: February 06, 2019, 10:00:00 am
Cornell was in goal at Oldham last year  Huh?

18  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: The Kieth Curle Post Honeymoon period on: February 05, 2019, 16:55:31 pm

Now Cox is injured we're back playing either Buchs in a back 4 (not good enough) or 3 at the back with Buchs as LWB (laughable) or in LM (even more laughable).

The system isn't working at the minute, but if anybody thinks it would be any better with Buchs playing any of those roles on the left hand side then they are totally deluded.

It's a case of which kind of bread do you want to make your **** sandwich out of? It's still a **** sandwich either way.
OK Clarence, we get that you don't think that Buchs is the answer, so what would you do with our defence? I agree that Buchs is not a wing back but I cant see anyone better in the squad as a left back, unless you put Turnbull there and that means Ash Taylor plays and that means we concede goals. I think that if we go, tonight, with a back four of Facey (because there is no one else), Goode, Pierre and Buchs. Defensive midfield Turnbull and Shaun McW with Bridge and Elsenik in the hole and Junior and Andy W up front. You have then got 6 outfield players who know their job is to defend, not worry if they should be overlapping or anything else.
   That, in my opinion, is about the best we can do with the current, fit players, maybe give Sordell the last half hour in place of AW and bring JJOT on if any of the midfielders are struggling.

KC has improved us, but from a low base set by Austin. )
Did you go to Colchester Ron? I did and there was a hell of a difference in the 2 performances, improvement? I don't think so.
20  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Col U.....Saturday on: February 03, 2019, 19:59:56 pm
Where's JFH working these days?
Sky TV probably getting a lot more for a day than most do for a month.
