Who was it on here that said people on forums know less than 10% of the truth and all the rest is made up or is fake news? If we're losing £100k a month why have we made a bid for a player, according to KC?

We could have got £100k for KVV and £150k for Crooks.....and make a 10k bid for a player?

When Austin got sacked I heard many fans saying Ďitís a shame you canít sack the playersí. Now weíre getting rid of the players who couldnít be bothered to fight to keep us up and people are still complainng. Good riddance I say. KVV never really wanted to be here and Crooks (with the technical ability he has) should be dominating teams at this level and far too often he hasnít. Good player on his day but very replaceable.

The problem is the lack of replacements so far....That's the key.

If we replace them, all well and good....but we haven't.....yet! And those players are not in the squad to face Carlisle tomorrow, therefore however crap you think they were, our squad for tomorrows game is weaker than it would have been had they been here.

KVV really didn't want to play League 2 football, not necessarily that he didn't want to be at NTFC......if he didn't then why did he make the move and sign the contract? He didn't, and now he's back in League 1.....not bad for a crap player, to actually go up a division that is.

Crooks was, I think, too good for us. His attitude was questionable, perhaps thats because he realised he had a load of garbage players around him" But I saw him dismantle Macclesfield single handedly a couple of months ago, and for me it was the best individual performance by any of our players in any game this season. Good player on his day, and those days were not often enough granted. but good riddance?? Really?

He's left us to go to a team playing two leagues higher than us, and KC says there were other offers too, Billy Waters also says there were other offers for him as well.

I wonder how many offers we've had for Shay Facey? Dean Bowditch perhaps? What about Sam Hoskins?

The squad has scored 33 goals this season. VV, Crooks and Waters between them have scored 15 of those, not far off half.

Anyone who says we're better off.....before they see whether we actually get ANY replacements, let alone can judge the quality of those replacements is having a laugh.

These departures have weakened out sqaud and raised questions about where we are heading, time will tell but if we have anymore outs before any in and they are substandard then serious questions will need to be asked.

KvV and MC had to go first, makes absolute business sense... And why panic for their replacements? Does it really matter if it takes a couple of weeks? We're lower mid table, can afford a loss or a draw or two, rather wait and get the 'right' players in...  In KC we trust...   Wink

Yes good riddance. It might be harsh but Iím sick and tired of these players thinking theyíre above themselves. I watched both Crooks and KVV barely fight to keep us in the division last year and all of a sudden because their technical ability is better than League Two they think theyíre too good for us. Get proper players in who want to fight for the club rather than those who just think theyíre too good for the division. Fans donít pay £22 a week for you to have a questionable attitude because you donít believe the players around you are on your level, not good enough.

With regards to replacements letís wait and see who KC can get in. Iím not saying weíre better off right now I just believe theyíre both very replaceable players that Iím not really that sad to see the back of because I believe KC is more than capable of bringing in adequate replacements. Youíre always going to be weaker if you lose a starter or two in a window but thatís football. Would you rather KC rushed to sign players in time for the game tomorrow? Some of the biggest clubs in the world have to go a few months with a weaker squad. Thatís the way it goes.

To be quite frank i'm very wary of players who can't get a game in the SPL,

We see a few players leave the SPL for the English Premier League and they look a wee bit like conference players, Crooksie for me was poor last season at League One level, i'd be very surprised if he ups his game a couple of levels and nails down a starting place in a Championship squad unless it was a club struggling for money and on the decline.

Lets play some of the youngsters who will work their socks off and get in another loan or two, IMO we are safe from the drop.

Am I the only one who read all the story of Crooks leaving on the club website? Towards the end Curle said we have a bid in for a player that we deem to be acceptable.

Presumably this must be a attacking midfielder/striker, so has anybody got the faintest idea of who it may be? If like it to be Jamille Matt, but maybe his value has gone up since the game last week.

With those that have left we still have a squad of 23 if you only include 2 goalkeepers and not those out on loan. Then if you consider that of these 5 of them are youth team/ graduates and  OíToole has been/still is injured then the match day squad does look decidedly thin and is not far from being quite clear. Unlike the starting line up or formation!
 Happily see some of the young players feature as Iíd expect they will bust a gut to make an impression.

Prepare for another decade or more in the basement, if relegation can be avoided that is.

Shite, stagnant stadium bordering on an embarrassment, owners not interested, better players leaving for a pittance.

Crying shame in such a large town with huge resources, but as long as we have owners who don't believe in the club and it's future, nobody else will except a few of you deluded individuals. I had more optimism about NTFC and it's future when Aidy Mann ran out for the first time at the County Ground.

This is exactly the type of player we need to take a risk on for the rest of the season.
