Hi

False dreams is the problem

Wilder gave us a belief that Northampton Town might achieve something sometime in the future
but that never will happen,
We are a yo yo team bottom division for 90% of our history,
then a miracle season.....
Then never invest in the team then back to the bottom division,

The latest players brought to this club...
nobody really wanted
Where is the BIG signing,
the 15-20 goal a season striker,that is needed even to stay up.....

1. We stayed up last year without a 15-20 goal season striker
2. The top scorer in the league last year played for a team who finished below us in the table
3. What you need to be successful is a well-balanced and well drilled team with a range of players who contribute goals. This takes time to build
4. As far as I'm concerned JFH has made a big mistake today, but that mistake doesn't suddenly invalidate the decent work he has done so far in his tenure.

Give the man time and let's see if he learns from his mistakes.

Yep, a 60 goal striker and another young gun who scores for fun yet neither got a chance and we persist with R&R. Does me head in, change it now. Recall them from their loans. Try Waters up top even. Got to do something different.

You can get away without a prominent goal scorer when other areas of the team are chipping in with goals on a regular basis.

They aren't.

This is nonsense, there was little to no investment when we one the league, this year there has been big investment while a club like Shrewsbury have much less. There is so much in football that is intrinsic. clubs go up and down leagues all the time, we may make the championship some day we may end up in the conference.

Your ability to repeat my quote is admirable, however it wins you no friends.

you may notice that I have not repeated your quote but have added to it to make it more amusing than the original,

plus i do not call people on web sites friends,
please note the definition of friend

a person with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, typically one exclusive of sexual or family relations.

However if you do have someone who gets 15-20 goals it bloddy helps

Not sure if that is the answer TK - if Loibjoit was doing really well in training he probably be included in the squad. Take Toney when he first came on he was knocking on the door. We all sensed that.

If he is never given a proper chance up top we will never know. The point is presently what have we got to lose giving him or Joe a run?

They cannot do any worse.

If it is nonsense then why do we yo yo


My point about it being nonsense was about the lack of investment. While it may not have been used wisely there has been transfer fees paid and big wages this season putting us top half of the table in this aspect unlike a club like Shrewsbury who have been making bargain basement signings and like always outside of the top leagues it guarantees nothing.

As someone who has supported the club for 35 years I also wouldn't say we are a yo yo club as while we have fluctuated between the two divisions the vast majority of that time has been spent in the basement division, in that time time we flirted with the championship once (the lost playoff final under Atkins) are far more often looked certainties for the conference.

Chances are though like many teams some time in the future we will be playing in the championship or the conference or both. You just need to look at the team that beat us in the play off final under Atkins, Grimsby who eventually dropped back down tthe leagues and into non league before making it back. We sacked Gary Johnson and hailed him one of our worst ever managers, before he went on to take Yeovil with the smallest league 1 budget into the championship before again dropping back to the basement.

Investment is nice and increases your chances, but like with Wilder league winning season it guarantees nothing. We had a manager its previous fans didn't want, a squad of players rejected at the previous clubs and a competitive but nothing special budget.

While this season looks bleak, supporting a lower league team isn't wwf it's not scripted, it's not even like the premier league where the same few teams compete for the league. It's a roller coaster ride with many highs and lows and that's the way it will always be, there is no magical panacea despite certain people on here's rantinings.

Investment in quality players at a club where it is not sustainable to do so due to poor infrastructure such as running at 80% capacity in a tiny non league ground and no corporate facilities will never ends well  and proven many times a complete waste of time and money, only benefiting our more progressive rivals who just take these quality players from us for very little outlay.
Our Sixfields/ council enabling land must be used to the maximum for the benefit of the club.
