No more money will be going into the club unless players go . SHOCK
Thomas has had enough and is desperate to sell.
Strowbridge and Jackson are not the answer in my option

Sorry B&S but that is a ridiculous thing to say - to write Strowbridge and Jackson off (if they are even one of the 3 interested parties) before we even know any details is baffling. I think we all need to wake up and smell the coffee - people are only going to be interested due to the land. One things for sure - if there’s no takeover (and sooner the better) then that could be the end.

This sale needs to be concluded asap because we limping into non league football with this current set up.  The board have had a shocker with since Wilder s team won the league.

The cub as it stands seems doomed with no control or real leadership, then on the pitch it seems to mirror that issue. This season can be turned around but it will need a strong owner who has to act on the main priority which is keeping this club in the football league.

I’m afraid it won’t matter who owns us.
If nobody wants to buy the COBBLERS as a going concern then it’s time to pack it in and admit defeat.
A succession of owners who are after redevelopment land has proved to be no good whatsoever.
Basically the clubs plight needs highlighting nationally (do we still have a trust)?
This is the only way we have any chance of getting a FOOTBALL CLUB owner in place.

Reading this forum we all know this is the case and it’s the land NOT the club that buyers seem interested in and yet as fans there is no action to ensure we get future custodians who want to own the CLUB.

We as supporters are as much to blame as anyone as we are quite prepared for the process to start all over again and you can bet we will be in the same position or worse in two years time with the east stand as is.

Can the trust issue a statement in the national press highlighting the situation and advertise for a potential new owner to take the CLUB forward.
An advert with the club crest the clubs history and the need for new owners being read by millions would be something.
KT wants to sell.
The fans want an owner who wants the best for NTFC.
The trust could actually spend some money on advertising in the national press which would also bring interest on a national scale and lots of media coverage.

We give trust money to other needy causes now let’s spend some on ourselves.

Totally agree we are limping towards non league. Unfortunately lots of our fans think we are either too/good too big to go down (ask luton or chesterfield about that) or give austin time and he will turn it around (what signs have there been of that?) Or just total denial of us being not that bad (well actually we've just played the bottom team and struggled to get a point, a team that has shipped 29 goals already this year)

Things continue the way they are and we are going down and tge sooner more people wake up and smell the coffee tge better.

Michu is right the takeover needs concluding quickly we need direction on and off the pitch and have neither at present

It would be nice if you could substantiate your opinion with reasons why rather than just dismiss them out of hand. Wasn’t Jackson on the board previously? I would imagine that none of the 3 interested parties are interested in taking us over just to own the club.

Crutchless & Ron... My 10p bet is that you’ll both be gone soon if you don't stop spouting shyte..

Sort it out chaps...
You should have banned Crutchless a week ago, leave Ron alone

It has to be selective on the level of shyte.
If we banned everyone who talked shyte, it would soon be a very lonely place.

Sorry B&S that’s not enough of a reason  - a bit like your ITK views of the squad it is cryptic and vague.

Whatever happens I hope to goodness it's solved by 1st Jan, and we're still in with a chance of staying up by then.

Major investment in players and possibly management needed.

So calling everyone "c***s" and singing off "F@ck you all!" is an acceptable level is it?  Just so we all know.

Better late than never. Good decision in the end though. I will now try and tidy up the thread as best I can also.

We need to have any takeover completed by 31st December 2018. else I can see players like McWilliams and Crooks sold in the January window with only loan replacements.

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?

I mentioned this guys name to one of my colleagues yesterday, only for them to remind me that I had met him at a function in London a few months back. I'm assuming that it was just another name then.

Anyway... He's at another thing I am attending in a couple of weeks. Might not tell him I'm a Cobblers supporter. Could put him off for life  Grin Grin
