So you mean the sky isn't falling in as some posters on here seem to believe?  Wink

There was never going to be any 'rebuilding' done over January, (the same for virtually all clubs in all leagues) but the selling of certain high-earners and the bringing in of suitable loanees to see us to the end of the season is phase 1 of the overall process and has helped to set the foundations for the beginning of a rebuild over the summer.

There are two problems there (at least);
1. The current Board don't seem too keen on investing in the team - they are not Cobblers supporters remember. They probably want a balanced budget, not an optimistic one.
2. Season Ticket sales may not hold up. The Board would spot this BEFORE investing in the team.

Honestly, I'll be amazed if season ticket sales hold up.

And look where we are off the back of it - Just the 4 conceded on Saturday.

Yes a lot was down to a poor defensive display, however had we had the Colchester keeper or O'Donnell or Ingram - that margin would have been smaller for sure! 

I suggest you add up how many O'Donnell has let in at Bradford this season before using him as a yard stick.

Higher level (one level not "much") so one would expect better defenders in front of him than Cornell has. Placing the word fact in capital letters after your opinion doesn't make that opinion a fact! It just makes you look silly.

The difference between the two GK's on Saturday was startling, their's commanded his area claiming numerous ball in his box, made a number of good saves, was physically imposing and looked confident. Cornell stopped the penalty (often down to luck) but his keeping was poor for the second (right at him, should have saved it) after their keeper had just made an excellent stop from Sordell. I'm also still yet to see Cornell come to claim a ball in his box if there's even one other player between him and the ball, unlike Colchester's keeper on Saturday.

Cornell may not have been the worst of the problems on Saturday, but he again showed he isn't good enough IMO.

Seems to me that ROD is no better than Cornell based on your facts stats. In fact with possibly better defenders in front of him he may have been found wanting. As a yardstick what is their Forum saying?
