First couple pages of this thread is hilarious  Grin

I'd get Bunney back if we can and if his fit.

If we are going for this system then it fits him perfectly!

Same. Looked excellent in his one match playing in his actual position.

I still think Hoskins creates most of anything any good for us.

Ive actually come to think the opposite where he wastes the ball in good positions so many times.

Quote from Ricky himself:

"I couldn't turn down the opportunity to play in the Championship,"

A Chmapionship team pushing towards the Prem too, they were in the playoffs when he signed. Not bad a for a 30 year old player who's never played above L1. Not sure money was the big factor.

Sheff Utd paid the most and got the least out of him. Almost half a mil and deemed not good enough.

Great goal from KvV. Hopefully enough to convince Curle he absolutely has to start every week.

Five changes from Saturday, but the same 18 selected. No room for youth....not sure whether thatís a good thing or a bad thing! At least we seem to be taking the game and competition seriously!

I reckon he's treating the game as an opportunity to see a few more first teamers in action.
7  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Head Down Hoskins on: October 09, 2018, 19:38:39 pm
Are people seriously saying that Hoskins is a better wide player than D'Ath?

They've both scored the exact same amount of goals for the Cobblers hilariously.
8  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Back room staff changes on: October 08, 2018, 18:51:52 pm
Within 7 days, Curle has dropped Buchs, dropped Taylor entirely from the squad, managed to only concede 1 in 2 and given Melville the boot. Initial thoughts were totally underwhelming. These acts however are winning him over very quickly for me  Grin Grin

He's been building the east stand in the evenings as well.
9  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Head Down Hoskins on: October 08, 2018, 14:55:21 pm
that is very flattering for d'ath to put him in a bracket with those 2


I just picked the 3 players ahead of Hoskins at the time. Could probably put Lee Martin in there too.
10  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Head Down Hoskins on: October 08, 2018, 14:17:04 pm
As a lower league two side, he's about adequate. Frustratingly, he gives the ball away more than any player I've seen in a Cobblers shirt (and misses more 1v1s) and will certainly need replacing if we ever have playoff aspirations. We've needed proper wingers since the season we let Adams, Holmes and D'Ath go.
11  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Swindon Town on: October 05, 2018, 18:42:01 pm
Whoís job will it be to wind McCourt up so he gets sent off in the first 20 minutes ?


Silly question. He lives in a caravan.
12  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Lets leave Curle alone on: October 05, 2018, 16:06:07 pm
I'm sure like most you didn't mind Austins appointment at the time it happened.... I think most would agree he should go when he did.

I'm not a fan of appointing caretaker managers... It tends to always work out in similar fashion (Sc***horpe had basically the exact same thing happen at the exact same time).
13  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Alive and kicking or dead and Buryed? on: October 04, 2018, 19:50:01 pm
An issue for me as well as the above is the ability to score goals throughout the team.

Crooks should get some, O Toole has or had the knack of finding the net. Taylor and Pierre are big guys and should be more of a threat from set plays.

It wouldnít matter so much if we had a 30 goal forward partnership. Reality is we donít so need cover from all areas and I canít see much coming.

Get McWilliams fit as although a goal scorer his energy and breaks from midfield give others more time.

Without someone like Grimes on corners, we'll struggle from set pieces this year regardless how big they are.
14  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Lets leave Curle alone on: October 04, 2018, 19:47:38 pm
We have idiots who wanted Austin in. The same idiots hated the fact we got Curle in. That's enough for me to know he's the right man for the job  Tongue
15  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Screen Presence on: October 04, 2018, 15:04:50 pm
Have to say, Curlio comes across way better than DA, much more articulate and reasoned

I read this exact sentence every time we get a new man a we in  Grin
16  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Alive and kicking or dead and Buryed? on: October 03, 2018, 19:44:24 pm
If I was a defender I would hate Hoskins. If I was a keeper I'd love him.



As a defender, just keep showing him wide. He never takes it past a defender and ends up floating it chest height into the keeper.

Twice I've seen an opposition play him a perfect through ball for an unpressured 1v1 only to watch him hit it straight at the keeper both times. A traffic cone in the middle of the goal would have stopped hoskins scoring this season.
17  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Alive and kicking or dead and Buryed? on: October 02, 2018, 22:00:42 pm
Hoskins alone must have missed 5 or 6 1 on 1s

He missed that many against Lincoln alone.
18  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Alive and kicking or dead and Buryed? on: October 02, 2018, 19:37:47 pm
Is this I follow thing any good?

Depends. What game are you watching?
19  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Alive and kicking or dead and Buryed? on: October 02, 2018, 18:57:28 pm
Hard luck for Buchs though.

I'd hardly call dropping a player on the back of 2 years of bad form 'hard luck'  Grin Grin
20  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Alive and kicking or dead and Buryed? on: October 02, 2018, 18:48:25 pm
And I'm seriously annoyed that we didn't go for Luke Williams, apparently he has signed for Hartlepool  Grin Grin Grin

Tranmere just signed Ryan Williams too Angry  Angry

We could of had 2 Williams free transfers to slot in on opposite flanks.
