GPC, as a matter of interest do you know what Chris Wilders win ratio was from January to May 2014 before he had a crack at the transfer market?

Coincidentally enough Wilder was appointed on 27th January 2014......so had 20 games of the season left , with no transfer window to work in.

His record from those 20 games (all league) was 8 wins, 7 draws and 5 defeats. Scored 22, conceded 21, points 31   Win ratio 40%

Didn't one or two players follow him through the door before the window closed?

Ricky Ravenhill and Alan Cornell both joined from Bradford on 30th January. Ravenhill was a strange one as Boothroyd had him here on loan from Bradford but he then returned to Bradford for a month before Wilder signed him on a permanent basis.

I like Curle, and think he is doing a good job. Extrapolating the teams form while under his stewardship to a whole season would see us probably finish just outside the play-offs. Considering the circumstances in which he took over and with a couple of glaring deficiencies in the team to work around he deserves a lot of credit for this.

I would also put forth that his managerial record overall is far from shabby. While he has not achieved a promotion in his career so far he has come close a number of times (in both L1 and L2), and usually leaves a club in a much better position than which he found it.

While this may not be saying much, he is also IMO a much more sophisticated and intelligent manager than any we have had since Wilder left. I like his laid back style in post-match interviews. He is much the same if we win or if we lose. I don't attribute this to his being indifferent to the result, whichever that may have been, but simply due to his analytical manner and the breadth of his experience. He has seen it all as a player and at this level as a manager. You can tell he is always looking at things from the perspective of the bigger picture, as he often calls it, 'the journey'. I think this detached manner is one of his biggest strengths and will in the medium and long term serve the club well.

In short I am enthused by having him as the clubs manager and can't help but feel, all things considered, that we are lucky to have him as our steward.





Now ask me the same question again in 12 months time and I might well reply that I want the *&!^ sacked asap!   Grin

Until then he gets a  from me.

I agree entirely.  After 2 years of **** & under-performance, I really cannot fathom why there are those who bandy around meaningless stats to make it seems as if we now have the "Devil Incarnate" at the helm.

No two ways about it.  Cobbler fans posting on here about how under-whelmed they are about Curley-Cobblers..... Go and support Peterborough, instead.  They need someone to take them down a peg or two.  Leave the Cobblers to the true supporters!  Go on ... Do one!  My foot up your rrrrs as you leave!

For goodness sake, what did you want after death by a thousand cuts?  An Alien Lord Redeemer?

We have the best manager to get this club back on an even keel after the spend-thrift, clue-less tossers who have been here before.  (JED excepted - I reserve judgement, as he had the "panic" buy syndrome thrust upon him).

Curley-Cobblers rules.

Black sausage, Cumberland, Lincolshire or even Italian Fennel Sauages or the Gold Street Sausage as immortalized in Northampton Crown Court a decade ago.

I like Curle, I feel sorry for him, as he is having to deal with the previous few seasons poor recruitment and morale, lots of decent players released, average ones offered new deals or signed on.

It is frustrating when he is chopping and changing the 11, but I don't think he has a choice at minute as nobody has set the world alight and deserves a run in the team bar the odd few.


I think he is just testing the character of a few to see if they are up for the challenge, and to be honest it doesn't look like it, this season I don't care which players stay or go, its now time to give a manger chance to stamp some kind mark on the club, give us a bit of an identity.


We seem to have no stomach for any fight or pressure, we seem to be so close to cracking it as we are not losing many, but we cant seem to find that little bit extra to push


All that being said if he doesn't sort it and we are no better come next year, then questions will have to be asked.

The rotation is nothing new, it's the weekly changes in formation were puzzling.

He'll soon come with the "I won't sign anyone for the sake of it"

Mcsweeney (who was good) and Sinclair (who was not), also?

Good shots on both counts!

Leon McSweeney joined on a free transfer after his release from Carlisle on 30th January, and Emile Sinclair on loan from Crawley on 31st January.
