It would be great to stay up and go into next year with the fans united behind Austin.

Nothing like a bit of adversity to bring Cobbler together !

If you are ever, ever desperate, and I am around, I'll help make up the subs bench next season.

Sadly, I am unavailable this season (and much too old, anyway!)

Top man for getting this sorted!!!!!!


Handy to know, thanks!

Never too old, only requirement to get involved is supporting the TEYN!

Peterborough '86-'87 is a blur.

But, I vaguely remember a game around then in the cup, at home to the P@@@, on a Sunday.....

I had made a rare appearance in goal (normally, I did the O'Toole role) for my Sunday team that morning.  I caught a glancing blow from a swinging foot as I dived amongst the feet to retrieve the ball.  The Ref gave a foul, but, I was up ready to give the miscreant something in return.  Sadly, all went blank, and a moment or 2 later, I was sideways on the turf.  More sadly, I was subbed.  Very sadly, I have no other recollection of the game at the County Ground, despite otherwise having driven home, changed, then off to the match.

Even more sadly, I remember only fleeting moments stood near the front of the Hotel End (yes, I remember that bit).  I believe the God that was Wakely Gage scored a Frank Rankmore in front of the Spion Kop.......

Please correct me if I am wrong.


Dont remember much about the home game, other than they built a temporary stand on the cricket side and it was still rammed. Benjy scored in the away game on Jan 31st. Remember Noel Cantwell getting a lot of stick due to comments hed made pre match. Also remember some Poo fans in the bottom of the stand next to the away end getting quite aggressive until some Cobblers fans in the tier above emptied the contents of their flasks on them. Im sure health and safety would have something to say about that kind of behaviour these days?

It has the potential to be a Dagenham. There are quite a few parallels.

It is almost impossible to predict because of the tiny number of games played under the new manager. Was Plymouth a one off or have we genuinely come a long way in a very short space of time? We'll have the answer soon enough. There have been so many false dawns this season that it would be typical of us to go and get stuffed on Saturday.

What we have finally found now is some momentum and belief. We had that in 2013/14 and it kept us up against the odds, despite a few bumps in the road on the run we went on. Any bumps now will be terminal. We need a Dagenham followed by an Oxford.

Bring it on!

I've been saying this all week. Can't wait to see the pubs in Birmingham full of town fans like we did in Liverpool Street that day.

What, pretend to swim amongst turds and crisp packets whilst being stared at by backpackers?

Hey, we're talking Black Country, not Bogamy Bay.......   Smiley

If you watch the full video you get to see a lot more supporters, myself included. This led to a lot of tenuous comments on the hotel end (stand not forum) such as you can see me jump over the fence at the final whistle wearing a cocktail skirt, a bowler hat and carrying a copy of the radio timesetc. Still reckon Peterborough away 86/87 was right up there with atmosphere though? Also, quite good to see the old players, Mickey Bell is now manager at Clevedon Town apparently?

We take on Walsall fans Saturday morning. Currently a threadbare squad of 11 so wouldn't mind an extra player (or two).

Got your ticket to the 3pm game already? Perhaps interested in a game for us beforehand? Please get in touch!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[edit] Here's a Shoemakers update whilst I am here....

17-Mar vs Abbey United IFC (a) 3-3 draw..... on the face of it, a decent result away to Cambridge, but we lost a 3-0 lead. Snowy conditions not ideal as we faded 2nd half.
2-Apr vs Peterborough United (a) 8-2 loss..... sloppy game, highlighted lack of fitness, plus we traveled without many regulars
7-Apr vs Sixfields Rangers (h) 5-1 loss..... first game on our new home pitch (Kislingbury), great facility, punished for a slow opening 20 minutes, matched them for the remainder
21-Apr vs Intrasquad match (h) 2-2 draw..... no opponents available, so 21 of our squad played out a match in roaring sunshine

As always, keen to hear from Cobblers fans who might be getting involved with us, particularly keen to hear from fans who get along to away games!
