So who do people see R.P bring in and letting go?

for me

D'ath & Rodders are nailed on to leave along with Byrom and poss Hopper & Gorre going back to their clubs which would free up some money to strengthen the team.

I've said this before but i would like to see us bring in Enoch Andoh (winger) together with another striker. Hoskins and JJ Hooper are not starters and not the answer imo opinion, i believe R.P is plugging the gap until January.   

We were in for Cox so maybe a player in the same mould which would be a bonus in going forward and keeping us in this league this season.

D'ath and Byrom will surely both be off - I'd much rather keep hold of rodders especially as we're going to need cover in January but I don't get to see him in training like page does. I'm more concerned by how rod has seemingly gone backwards after last season - I would've hoped with a former international centre back as manager he would have got even better. I agree with the quality left sided attacker as a priority but page seems fine pleased enough with jjh, I just pray that we don't sign him permanently. I reckon we could also do  with a nippy forward alternative to revs/Rico and a mobile ball winning centre midfielder but none of these grow on trees.

Id guess Rod has gone backward cos his confidence has been shattered and he hasnt hardly played. If page is happy and keeps Hooper then im afraid my confidence in Page would start to wain

Like I say none of us know what goes on behind closed doors but page doesn't strike me as being the kind of person to cut his nose off to spite his face or bear grudges, I'm sure if he thought rod was good enough he'd be in the starting 11 regardless of what we think of him. I'm slightly more concerned about his views on jjh particularly after last weekend although it sounds like this thigh injury might have an impact on that

A goal scoring winger and another striker.
We could do with a big name signing for our level, show some serious  intent.
Matt Taylor could use his influence to persuade some higher league players to spend a last contract at Northampton?

I just keep wondering if a more mobile ball winning midfield general type would help us with the issues we are having with defensive organisation. I just feel that McCourt and o'toole are too slow and the timing of their tackling isn't exactly either of their strengths. Like I say this type of player doesn't grow on trees and if they become available they will be much in demand.

??  Rod is fourth choice CB, unless two are injured/unavailable,  when should he be selected?

Just get the paper work done away from the ground.. Thats how it used to be done to avoid the old county ground scaring off potential new signings 😉

I feel that some of the requests for various signings are likely to remain unfulfilled . To my mind Mr Page priority is to sort out the defence. So probably a centre half is perhaps a top priority maybe a more defensive minded midfielder but I happen to think that Taylor, JJOT and McC are more than adequate for L1.
As for an inside forward and a winger it's a big ask to get the standard required!

Isn't Jak McCourt our mobile ball winner? Stats with him in the team against him out of the team tell a story.

A proper left winger, Enoch Andoh would be a great pick up here and would not command a fee.

Another striker if we let Hooper go, unless we are going to start playing Hoskins right up the top rather than in behind.

I would keep McDonald, maybe we could loan him out to get some much needed game time.

I would have liked to see D'Ath this season, but it is clear RP has other ideas so he will be off.

big rod out on loan - although it leaves us short of cover with only 3 centre halves
phillips out on loan - although then we have no cover at right back

d'ath and byrom out - both toilet

hooper and gorre back to their clubs.

strike lucky and get a matchwinner a la ricky holmes in.

easy.
