Just saw this?

Rumours about of a John Stowbridge. Local businessman (Care Homes), talks having taken place and a deal being close. Unsure how true these rumours are.

Anyone else heard anything?

Out of interest, what benefits would there be to taking over NTFC?

Paying yourself a six figure salary as Chairman for a few years.
Or
Moving up the leagues, developing the stadium and selling for a profit?

Which do we think is more likely?

I can see why he would be interested
He can easily convert the stadium to an old folks home
The west stand is already complete!!

Stowbridge owns the care home next to the Windhover pub. He regularly comes into my workplace near to where he lives and I know he's a rugby fan, never heard him even mention football but obviously that means nothing.

Could be best for all parties this, with Thomas seemingly losing a bit of interest

The latter has turned in to the former to a greater degree of late.

I wouldnít say JS is impossible because he is connected to David Jackson but I very much doubt it .
He is a rugby man through and through .
The only reason that could be possible is if he sees a development opportunity in the Sixfields vicinity for one of his many care homes .
He certainly has money but I would say no interest in us as a football club .

Pure speculation of course but using the associated sixfield land as a care village is a very logical concept - it is not fraught with all the issues of a retail or industrial development (competition with other retail sites, excess traffic etc) - if it is true what we have to hope is the owner has more than lip service interest in the football club - Iím slightly more optimistic as a care village is part of a wider community and even if there is only marginal interest positive PR would be gained from a community approach to the whole project. Also and again pure speculation there could be a connection with DJ as care villages usually have a model based on quite a lot of leasehold real estate buying and selling.

If he builds a care home for the elderly, it mitigates the need to worry about all the contaminated land so much. Cardoza dealt in cemeteries didnít he? Could be a match made in heaven.

All he had to do was build a stand.

We always buy and invest in our own minds eye from our own prospective, yes very few can afford to take over at a football club but many can and do so for a variety of reasons, some are fans and happy to throw some spare cash at their club in a hope to turn arounds its fortunes on and off tge pitch, others who dont want take a massed fortune to the grave, enjoy spending a little money speculating on building up a football club and some to just use the club to facilitate other opertunities from the land the ground stands on.

We've just been unlucky these past 2 decades I guess😂

In the past 2 decades, I'd say we haven't been unlucky or lucky. We've just about remained the same.

 Very true and yours (and indeed mine) ideal owner is in very short supply so we have to deal with cards we are dealt.

Still at least there is a possibility of something better but I suspect you and Random will only be giving any new guy limited time before the accusations start.

I think that will always be the case while the land issue is still there.
Club or land?
What are they here for?

You canít blame anyone for being pessimistic after our recent history.

If we hadnít got the bloody land at least weíd know any perspective owners were here with the club at heart.
