Now you see, thatís more like it. Reasonably achievable, but how are we going to fund it? Beds mate Iím not having a go despite the rhetoric but as a collective we simply have to come up with a reasonable way to get funding. Itís going to be exceptionally difficult but not impossible. Iíve suggested an avenue to investigate and there will be others. If we pull together and take this stage by stage in bite size chunks with reasonable and considered decisions we might just get somewhere, maybe. Without patronising you please just put all that energy and enthusiasm into something that the majority will buy into. Itís the only way.
The beauty of getting to the stage where you can't afford not to find the funds, they then become very easily found.

I donít know about easily but they can be found. There is always a way if thereís a will, especially a collective one. Have we just agreed on something???

JOINT STATEMENT: NORTHAMPTON BOROUGH COUNCIL AND NORTHAMPTON TOWN FOOTBALL CLUB

https://www.ntfc.co.uk/news/2019/january/boroguh_council_joint_statement/

Northampton Borough Council and Northampton Town Football Club (NTFC) have today jointly confirmed that positive discussions are continuing to be had on a range of topics including the development of the East Stand at the PTS Academy Stadium.

The Borough Council and NTFC are not able, at this stage, to provide detailed information or a time frame for these discussions to be completed but they have both confirmed the outcomes will be to everyoneís benefit including both supporters of the club and the wider public and be deliverable within a realistic timeframe. Whilst discussions have included nearby land under the control of CDNL (County Development Northampton Limited) both parties are clear that the completion of the East Stand will come first.

Further information will be provided as and when possible, but this is a complicated and technical discussion with both the Borough Council and NTFC very anxious to avoid creating any further difficulties or delays, and it is now important to allow these discussions to complete to ensure a positive conclusion is reached.

Certainly not pointless. A public statement to attempt to appease the masses and subdue any rising unrest that may be occurring due to the prolonged silence and absence of activity. The only reasonable course of action that could have been taken by the board, short of actually doing something obviously. Itís the old adage of the 5 pronged stalling tactic.
Stage 1 We are going to do something but we are being prevented from doing it.
Stage 2 We want to do something but thereís nothing we can do?
Stage 3. We are talking to the other parties and maybe thereís something we can do?
Stage 4. We have agreed to do something but weíre not sure when?
Stage 5 . Maybe thereís something we could have done but itís too late now.

Supporters are cynical because we have heard it ALL before, time and time again!!!

Therefore timescales;
                                      one MONTH?
                                      one YEAR?
                                      one DECADE?

Hopefully NBC are pushing the agenda of finishing their leased stadium before considering planning applications on adjoining land and holding this line if possible to do this

Whether or not this would prevent the current ownership of CDNL selling it on as it is and also their stake in NTFC is another question. DC had several offers up to £24 million for the land before it went belly up.
What would stop anyone else making similar offers?
The only thing stoppping me if in a similar position would be having the belief that a developed site would realise significantly more.

Yep. I've still got a photo of my then 8 year old stepdaughter standing on the hill outside Sixfields, wafting a scarf around and yelling with excitement at attending her first ever football match.
When her and her brother later attended their first game as season ticket holders they just happened to be picked out of the crowd to be be flag wavers greeting the players out. They were thrilled. Funnily enough, the fact the stadium only held about 7000 people at that point didn't seem to diminish the moment for them.

Exactly the same for my youngest when he attended his first game. He got a birthday announcement on the tannoy at his 2nd and got to come out of the North stand to be a flag waver on the 3rd.

Sadly, bits of trouble after the games against Milwall and McDons has soured his view lately, but at no stage has he ever said he doesn't want to go because of a crap stadium.

It is fantastic that your lads enjoy be a Cobblers, exactly as we all did way back when. The problem is that for every one of them there are currently a 1000 who say NTFC is crap and the ground is a dump, I don't want to be associated with that.

The proof is in the pudding or will be if we insist on a zero growth policy , so in 10 years time when all your kids mates head off down to see mk dons in the championship and were still trying to finish off the East playing L2 football, badly 🤣
Currently young teenagers are embarrased to associate themselves with constant failure, it gets them ridiculed.

That statement coming out of Sixfields today fills me with dread, as doubting Thomas cant make his mind up, should he stay or should he go?
Have some self respect man and get out of our club, you've had your chance.
