The consensus of opinion seems to be that he stays on in a player/coach role. I'm not against that but it has to be recognised that he is not quite the player he was and he is likely to be that bit slower next season. That is football life. We don't have a big budget and JE has to spend it very wisely to rebuild a poor squad (let's accept the truth and not dream otherwise).

Very strange to say he will make a good coach. He might, he might not, is it worth tieing up money on a player for two years when the only justification is that he is a "good bloke "
How does anyone know he will be a good coach ?? Plus we don't need any coaches .
Jon Brady and Darren Collins are at the club currently and they are both very good and well qualified coaches . Plus they both know JED very well .
I would prefer to see these two more prominent

Football fans are quick to moan about lack of loyalty with players and yet when it goes the other way it's fine.
We aren't just talking about a player that's been with us for a while we are talking about one that stayed when he wasn't being paid, which was a huge factor in our second half of the season surge last year.
So if we can Utilise him at all without it putting strain on our finances (which I think we can) then we should.

Correct . Particularly Jon is a very well respected coach amongst people that know .
I am not saying they should become manager of NTFC but I am saying they are ahead of Rico in the pecking order .

Unfortunately, there is no loyalty in football. We would probably all like Rico to stay but the club has to move forward & JE has some tough decisions to make in the next couple of weeks.

12 goals so far in 288 mins of football so far this season at League One level. Clearly we need an additional striker with pace and a better supply of crosses but why would you throw the baby out with the bathwater?

Huh?

A goal every 24 minutes? Who are you talking about?

Sorry - I posted some complete tripe accidentally while adding up some stats in part of my phone....what I meant to post was that Rico has scored one goal for every 288 mins on the field so far this season, slightly ahead of J.J. Why would you throw the baby out with the bathwater?

Don't ever be sympathetic in football .
Rico's legs have gone but he can do a job for us for another year at reduced wages ....

Fair enough... The Chronicle & Echo are running it as a new story today and the first I'd heard of it

Sounds to me Rico didnít want to leave , the other players didnít want him to leave ( he went in the end of season night out ) , we could do with him in division 2 and him and Revell should not have left together - even though both are not good enough for division 1 . No one is happy !!
All in all , another Hasselbank blunder .

One step closer to a Rico and O'Toole management duo.

A fine player in his day, surprised that like many other veterans he hasn't dabbled in the Conference north or Northern EvoStik league, personally feel he would have been the man to get Brackley promoted.

His experience will be great for our youngsters, I think we have a lot of ex players who may not make good managers but would be first class coaches.

Such a presence at the club, can't see him being content with youth team coach role for long. Manager material definitely.
