From what I've seen this season... and completely my opinion:

These have all proved to me they are of League One quality.

Van Veen
These all have good footballing CVs and have surely underperformed to varying levels in my opinion. We can all see they have talent, but have only shown it on a sporadic basis at best. If every player here was on a free transfer, you'd expect a minimum 7 of the 8 to pick up a League One side at least.

These will all probably be pretty effective in a top 6 League Two side. This might look harsh on McWilliams, but I really felt he needed a long term loan in League Two this season. Never know... next season might be the making of him? If we go down, a central midfield trio of him, O'Toole and Crooks will be very effective at that level.

These will appear in my 'All Time Forgettable Cobblers' squad in the not too distant future.

Going forward into next season, I'm pretty certain not a single loanee will be wanting to come anywhere near Northampton next season (regardless of what league we are in), so we can write these off. In League One, we'd need a pretty big clear out of all the dross and a bit of a rebuild if want something better than a third relegation battle in as many years. We'd be back looking for new wingers again and more firepower up front yet again.

In League Two? I really think we could build a team around a core of O'Donnell, Taylor, Facey, O'Toole, Crooks, McWilliams and Van Veen. Even Hoskins might look like a decent winger back in League Two.
