Just saying like  Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

Congratulations on managing to stay awake through that, one of the most boring Finals ever, and that takes some doing.

Superb performance and a deserved win, was that Jon Brady on their bench?

Just watching Brackley at Wembley, that James Armson is a class midfielder. I think he has a very good job outside football but you would think you should be able to sort out some sort of deal.

League 2, piece of p*ss !! JJ Hooper even managed to score a hatrick in Grimsby's last match, I rest my case.

P.S. As long as Cornell is NOT our first choice keeper !

The Championship seems to be the target that we aspire to as a minimum? Here are the figures for 2015/2016 which are the latest available. Of the 24 clubs listed only one showed a profit with another (Bolton) not submitting figures at the time of the report. How on any level is a football club supposed to be an attractive investment? Just to give you some idea of what some are claiming. Letís just suppose the club was to show a 10% profit? That would be a staggering achievement based on the figures here? In the event there was 10million spent on the ground it would require a turnover of over 120 million after corporation tax to get your money back. The club currently turnsover 4 million with no profit on gates of 6000. If you doubled the gate to 12,000 as a rough figure the turnover would be 8 million. Assume another 2 million for tv etc and in the event that the club could perform a miracle in comparison to this report and show a pretax profit of 10% for 12 years straight after corporation tax an ďinvestorĒ would get their money back. Thatís right, not have anything to show for it, just get their money back and thatís if the club performs a miracle. This is also based on the fact that the ground was completely sold out every week (using the 12,000 capacity target) and not taking into account the fact that you have got to build the development in the first place which could add a year or two? Alternatively the investor, and I use the term loosely because they would have to be an idiot, could stick it in the Nationwide and get 3% guaranteed? Hopefully this will give a bit of clarity to the discussion, but Iím not holding my breath?
What a load of b*llocks, I mean what Nationwide account pays 3%?    Smiley

which is he then? ace? or terrible like lawson d'ath?

In his first season Lawson D'Ath was very good.

An interesting one. Does he leave a player up top to please the crowd (to the detriment of the team), or does he revert back to the current best practice.. But risk being shouted at from the more vocal, lower IQ members of the West Stand?
But that is your opinion, no one has ever come back with statistics to confirm that it's "best practice" following the second phase of play, when you clear the corner with everyone back but the ball, 100%, comes back in.

Lincoln used to have quite a few d*ckhead fans, stoning coaches and just being pretty obnoxious, hopefully they might have grown up.

Congratulations Dean, get them playing like you did against Plymouth and we will all enjoy ourselves. The correct appointment in my eyes, knows the players and their attitudes and plays people in their correct positions.
11  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Underrated and forgotten gems? on: May 11, 2018, 00:07:49 am
If you are talking about 85 season, it was a 2-1 win. 2,315 attendance may seem rather unremarkable but all season had been a shocker with crowds (loose term) of around 1,300 (and the 942 Chester) game.
Think it was the Derek Banks takeover which saw a surge in optimism!
Don't recall any other end of season Mansfield games...playoffs aside!
We did go to Mansfield right at the end of a season and I think it was about who finished bottom. One thing that will say the year, a young Luke Chambers made his debut in that game

God, how we missed a Joel Byrom type of midfielder this season - neat, tidy, mobile, rarely gives the ball away and not afraid to get stuck in.
Don't forget his vision, we must have scored 3 or 4 goals at least when he took quick free kicks while the opposition were still deciding how many to have in the wall.
13  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: JIMMY OUT! on: May 10, 2018, 10:01:10 am
I still couldn't work out why Grimes took the corners from the left, surely there was a right footed player who could swing them in from that side, it's not difficult.
14  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: NTFC next manager on: May 09, 2018, 11:27:38 am
Is that the guy we signed from Buckingham, who scored 60 odd goals ?    Grin

Best thing since sliced bread...

I thought that Grimes was by far the best player on the pitch, if only JFH hadn't have played him soooo deep
17  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Oldham Athletic (h)- Last game of the season- Last game in League One on: May 05, 2018, 12:22:31 pm
Great weather for today, will enjoy an evening game in the sunshine if nothing else.
Should be a big help to us, as everyone knows, it doesn't get above freezing point in Oldham even in summer  Grin

NBC meeting behind closed doors next week regarding loan. Sounds like they're going to write it off and allow the crooks to ride off into the sunset. Could be why they're dragging their feet over development now.
Beyond believe that the Council spend £1M on chasing the money the same time as the police are doing it.
19  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Van Bellend on: May 04, 2018, 09:45:04 am
He will score 5 in 4 games at the start of next seson, and then get a "transfer" away to Lincoln City.
I can't see the Cowley brothers putting up with a lax attitude.
