I know how much we're all loving our team at present so best have a match thread.

Along with Exeter they are unbeaten in the league... guess we'll systematically take them apart?

So much depends on how we perform at home .
We are set up to be resolute away and steal a result .
We cannot play that way at home and not all teams will give us the space Plymouth did .
Hopefully we can be a bit more imaginative in our play and bring the crowds back .

I do appreciate the gist of what youíre saying (and I canít recall being a cobblers fan as being this boring for a while) but I didnít think that Plymouth particularly gave us room to play, it was just a high energy, front foot performance and the early goal and then the quick response to the equaliser boosted confidence?Iím just clinging to the hope that the Plymouth game wasnít a one off but I think the absence of Watson is more significant than we might think.

This will be an attrition game like last season's fixture, I suspect.

Whilst I agree with your observations I also think the really successful teams may change tactics for who they are playing but not because itís simply home or away - why should they? - ok the pitch may play a little differently but they are meant to be professionals - as for home vocal support, well thatís complete rubbish as we get much better vocal support at away games than the sixfields library. For me a manager who consistency plays a different (ultra defensive) game away from home is one who will at best achieve mediocrity and has an aging 30 year old grasp of tactics.

We simply cannot play the same at home as we do away . I think we pretty much tried that last season and it didnít work. Furthermore , people wonít put up with it at Sixfields on entertainment grounds alone .
Crowds have been dwindling for some time and thatís one of the reasons .
I also hope that the Plymouth performance wasnít a one off and that we continue to play in that vein. Nothing would please me more but KCís track record suggests otherwise I think .

I think the vocal support is similar in terms of people. Itís just that at away games all of the vocal people are generally sat together under one (often fairly small) stand as opposed to being split by the stands (e.g. north stand/west stand).

I donít suppose anyone has seen an update on McCormack - I thought he was supposed to have played in a behind closed doors match this week but I havenít seen anything from the club?

If McCormack isn't fit then Turnbull needs to play in Midfield,Wharton and Goode can hold down central defence. Where as I find S.Mcwilliams to be irratic in midfield, he puts himself about but does not offer the protection that Turbull or McCormack do. This would go a long a way to stopping us getting overrun like we did in the 2nd half against Bradford.

Shaun is nowhere near fit enough for centre mid, his best position is full back which he is back up at best.
Turnbull is miles ahead of Shaun in every department.
Iím going 3-1 to the sheep molesters.

The situation with McCormack must worry Curle.
He was a high profile signing and must be on a decent wedge . Yet he missed pretty much the whole of pre season and then played when clearly not fit .
Who knows when he will return and how long he will last for when he does !

We're in the twilight zone right now.
Curlio is winning the odd 1 or 2 just to keep his job. But its going to be a lower to mid-table finish if he stays.
His tactic's are not the best and he's pretty useless.

However saying that I have a good feeling about this one

I agree with this . Curle is just about keeping his head above water with the odd result .
A mid to lower table finish will not be acceptable to anyone though .
I predict a bore draw on Saturday

Newport ain't conceded since first game of the season so head says 0-1 loss...
but being Cobblers we'll probably (hopefully) win it!

You remind me of the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland. No substance in your predictions; a one way negative opinion on the Manager and end up forecasting a victory in a difficult fixture. Seems to me you are torn between supporting the team and the negative obsession you have with the current Manager.

Itís testament to what a great job Flynn has done at Newport especially bearing in mind they lost 2 or 3 of their best players and seem to have effectively replaced them and maintained continuity. I was hoping that Lincoln might have poached him before Saturday but Iím not sure if theyíre still interested or not - it just shows what recruiting the right manager does for a club.

You donít miss an opportunity to enlighten all on your personal view of the manager. If the side plays well you have a very grudging appraisal of the Manager. After a period of time you lose credibility with your repetitive mantra. Of course you are entitled to an opinion but to mislead many on here with your persistent negative views suggests you are not a bona fide supporter but somebody with a grudge against current NTFC staff/management.
