Agree with some of this and the use of olde English ‘thwart’ Cool. As a matter of interest which of the midfield failed to do their job?

Starts with S, ends with McW.

'Thwart' is scandinavian, Norse I believe.

Since 2016 which would be my last 100 posts, how well have we done as a club?
Relegation
Survival In Div2
Bottom half of Div 2
You may settle for surviving, I donít pal.

We all want to see the team do better and Iím with you on the not settling for survival. However I just donít see how blaming the manager for everything is logical or sensible. Not saying you personally are only blaming him but the way your posts (and others) are coming across is that you donít want to put any blame on anyone but the manager. Whatever you think about Curle, it isnít all his fault. I am not totally convinced by him either but he came in and did far better than Austin did. Whether people want to accept it or not, at this present moment it would be very harsh to sack him. As Iíve said before, I suspect the next 7-8 games will be massive for his Cobblers career.

I agree 100% with this, I wasnít exactly overwhelmed when KC was appointed and I must admit he hasnít helped himself with some of the things he has done (and some of the performances have been attritional at best) but I was/am prepared to give him a chance - unfortunately there are a lot of supporters who have made their minds up and heís never going to win with them. I know itís been hard going particularly at home recently but we were superb against Plymouth and he doesnít get any credit for that yet we end up losing against Bradford and he gets a battering.

A draw at Bradford (which we nearly got) would have been a good result so I'm not writing KC off yet. I wasn't thrilled by his appointment but then I wasn't thrilled when Sir CW arrived(Ok I apologise) I wanted Tisdale (for which I don't apologise). Let's hope Curly proves many of us wrong.

Nothing I have heard or seen from the man emits any character traits that would be required to achieve success. He has now collected together his own 'men' and well, frankly I am whelmed.

Sadly I agree - he is in my opinion an honest jobbing Div 4 manager who will not get you relegated but unlikely to delight, excite or reach any promotional height................

Letís be realistic, we are basically an honest jobbing Div 4 club and have been for many years. We have the manager we deserve, why would any manager aspiring to greater heights ruin his career with us?

We do have some notable history, 1st Old Div, 2nd Div Runners Up , 3rd Div Champions and more recently run away Champions of EFL L2. Been to Wembley x 2 in recent years. Record Home attendance of 24000. Many Clubs don't even have any of that. Still it is boring at the moment! I tend to remember the good times and simply forget the bad.
