Spot on Shoey. I think the mods have backed themselves into a corner and now itís all a bit out of hand.
As you say though, good to see their intolerance for dead rockstars!
Personally speaking I donít think David Bowie, Prince Philip or Rupert Murdoch have a place in Cobblers Corner - but what the fcuk do I know?

Cheers Jim. I forgot to mention John Renbourne and Bert Jansch, when I saw Pentangle at the Sage, Gateshead about 10 years ago

Yes, very good post. We've still got no chance of staying up though. Who's to blame? Is it Curle, for getting in a load of dross.
Was Edmonson really one of his main targets in the transfer window, or was that just spin, hoping he'd come good because the budget was so s***e. Was the budget s***e though? Who knows, none of us that's for sure. If it was, then KT has to take the brunt of the blame considering we got £1000000 plus for Goode and it seems next to none of it was spent on transfer fees.
But, hey ho. At least most people are happy we've still got a team to support and as long as we can finish 22nd or higher next season we'll be ok in our s***ty little ground with no ambition and no chance of anything exciting happening any time soon.


Who decides what a "s***e" budget is?

What would people say was an acceptable budget for this season?

I doubt it would double anything. At a generous estimate they just about break even from our part of the deal.

I've never really worked out what we bring in from match day revenue, including season tickets. Iíd imagine itís quite a bit south of 2 million. I canít much change out of 1.3 million on just the players wages. Throw in the rest of the staff that take an income, there's your season match day money gone. Yeah, thereís a few quid in endorsements, hospitality, conferencing etc.

Thereís no money at all in lower league football. In fact, I doubt it there is more than a handful of teams that operate at a genuine profit in any league. Where as far as I know, the Saint show a very healthy return. We have to be realistic, as you were in what you was saying previously. The only thing that is viable, is the enabling money from the adjoining land. And that should only ever be signed over to ANYONE, in receipt of a full legally agreed development plan, that shows a clear path to the ground development. In fact, total childís play to any developer worth their salt.



So are the dream team worth their salt, or is total childs play a bit too difficult considering it's gone on for about 5 years?

Isn't it funny, that this thread is allowed to run and run despite all the political bulls***,  jingoism and other nonsense.
 I'm not complaining, some of the posts on here are unbelievably naive and quite comical and it's quite interesting and sometimes pretty surprising, even though I don't know most of the posters, which colours they nail to their masts. Incidentally, who are the best popstars, who were alive at the time but are now dead that the moderators have ever seen?

Keep up Drilling. I fully Accept your balanced comments but if you re read my post I included the left leaning Roberts  family. My point was, that you have further made for me, is that we shouldnít believe any news that you can trace to a single self interested person or small group. Which is about everything on our combined list apart from The BBc.

Interestingly our politics are not that different - Iím more centre left. Proud to say I havenít voted Tory for 20 years and canít see a time that I ever will again. Mind you with the 3 worst PMs representing us for the last 10 years itís amazing that any body can honestly say, that the Tories have earnt their vote!?

I noticed you've not included the left wing biased media from your list so for balance...

Channel 4 news - I watch this every night, I like the presenters, even though its politically VERY left wing. I guess its a bit like a Cobblers fan listening to the away commentary on iplayer!
The Guardian - hate mongering rag, on an absolute par with the Daily Mail but the other extreme/agenda. 'Intelligent' nutjobs read it.
The Mirror - thick people who find the Guardian a little bit too complicated.

Id consider myself a centrist, in some ways I'm right of centre, others left of centre. I haven't bought a newspaper for at least 15 years. Used to buy the Sun, read it back to front. Always found the sport an easy read whilst having lunch in my Mondeo when I was a sales rep. Rest of it was utter nonsense lol. Wouldn't feed it these days though, I've become more principled as I've got older!  Grin

Id consider voting for Labour if they got rid of the Corbyn element, which they are no where near to achieving. Find more of their prominent MP's despicable than I do Tory ones.

A solution for me would be for the momentum seeking lefties to fcuk orf and build their own unelectable party, and then Labour could provide a decent viable alternative. Labour would get far more voters like me than they would lose voters who are Momentum sympathisers. They can take Abbot, Corbyn and McDonnell with them, of course. As things stand, Id only vote Tory out of the three main parties in a general election because for me they are the least bad of the three options!!

If you consider the stadium as its own entity, double its income.

The only difference it that we would be private tenants rather than council scum.
