So you would drop Cornell ..... probably our most in form player after Goode ?

In your opinion. Do you really think this? He's certainly not been one of our worst performers but IMO he's been no better than steady, and has rarely had to make significant saves.

Quite fitting really that James Brophy should score the winner as the last time he played at Sixfields against the Cobblers was for Swindon when Edinburgh was our manager and although we beat them on the night he gave us the run around and I am sure Edinburgh remembered this performance which may have influenced him signing him for the Os. As I can only comment on the Cobblers from afar in Scouseland the issue as I see it for where the Cobblers will end up this season rests on our ability to core more goals per game and kill teams off. Williams still seems to be our best hope in this respect, all the other alternatives in the shape of Hoskins, Smith, and Oliver have so far lived up to their previous track records elsewhere and not shown the ability to put the ball in the net on a regular basis.

To be fair, Oliver hasn't been given a decent run in the team yet. From what I've seen of him though, I think he should be in the team more.

I agree about Smith and Hoskins though.

We were poor yesterday and once again the subs were baffling.
Since
Looking at some of the new players in the squad yesterday, they really haven't lived up to the expectations, have they?

Harriman - I seem to remember he said something about being the best full back in the squad. If he really thinks that he's delusional; he's barely the best full back in the squad.

Hall-Johnson - not really fair to judge him on yesterday when out of position, but he's pretty ordinary.

Wharton - pretty good so far.

Martin - bang average.

Adams - still not up to speed yet.

Lines - I've seen him a good few times in the past and rate him as I've seen him dictate play. He's yet to do that for us, but in fairness it must be hard to dictate anything when the ball is sailing over your head 90% of the time.

Smith - the biggest disappointment so far. When it was said that we were about to sign a big striker, I thought "I really hope it's that lad from Macclesfield...." and lo and behold it was. He caused us all sorts of problems but I've yet to see him make any use of his physicality to good advantage.

Oliver - got to be worth a start as he looks a far better option than Smith right now.

McCormack- god knows, but looked ok in a brief cameo yesterday.

Warburton - we all love a bit of romance and a player plucked from non league is a bit Roy of the Rovers, isn't it? I really wanted him to come good and on his debut he showed real promise. He's gone downhill since then and yet yesterday he looked like he'd won a competition to be there.

Harriman - Looks very decent to me, a massive improvement on both of our left and right back options from last season.

Hall-Johnson is primarily a right-back, but he has only played there once for us so far. I thought he looked promising in that game.

Wharton - Looks very decent, has lived up to expectations.

Martin - Agree, he look it on evidence so far, but he's still a big improvement on Buchanan from last season.

Adams - Has been playing reasonably well and has been a decent signing. Unfortunately at times he's having to do too much due to us carrying (IMO) a few passengers.

Lines - Agree, but I'm sure he has some quality and he showed glimpses of this in previous home games. I still expect him to be an important player this season.

Smith - So far poor

Oliver - Looks a very useful player and should be getting more game time.

McCormack - Has hardly played because of injury, but I like the look of him. I think he will be a big player for us this season.

Warburton - Agree, but I still think he can come good.

Watson - Had put in some excellent performances before his injury, we are badly missing him.

Kaja - Has looked good in the cameos he has made so far. Was he injured on Saturday? Another one who IMO should be getting regular game time, whether as a starter or a sub.

Arnold - Another one who has only played part of one match due to injury.

The only signing I don't like the look of at all is Smith, the rest have either been decent, or have looked promising but have been missing through injury.

Curle wanted his players in, playing his way . He said it would all change once that happened and we could move forward .
Well, arguably the best three players this season are Goode , Turnbull and Cornell who were all at the club last season . The young players are not coming through at all and the new signings are a big disappointment .

Very well spun.

Goode is still one of Curle's signings. Harriman, Adams, Watson and Wharton have all been decent IMO. McCormack and Arnold have barely featured due to injury. Oliver and Kaja have looked very promising in their brief appearances so far. Hall-Johnson also looked promising in the only game he has played (due to injury) in his preferred position. I didn't expect much from Warburton as he was making a step-up, so I wouldn't say he's been a disappointment. There's still time for him to come good.

I agree that Lines and Martin have been disappointing so far, particularly Lines (who I still expect a lot from this season), while Smith has probably been the biggest let down.

Overall I still think the signings have improved us and the squad is a lot stronger than last season.

Curle's tactics do frustrate me at times, but I'm still confident we will finish a lot higher in the table than last year. At the moment I think we will fall a little short of the play-offs though, but time will tell.

Agree with the majority apart from your assessment of Hall-Johnson who played the first two games and struggled in both, with only a slight improvement in the second.  The first I was hoping that he was going to be pulled at HT to protect him. However I do hope that he does improve and becomes an asset.

Surely you are a wind up ?
Going back to the point , you would drop him on that basis ?

Agreed. Look at the two long range goals he conceded in back to back games. That's a regularity throughout his NTFC career. Pretty happy Arnold is soon back in the fold personally.

Was it "bring babes in arms" to the match day? A lot round me looked bored stiff and shouting incoherently. Come to think of it so was I.

Did he pick up 5 bookings before the start of October too then? Shocking lack of discipline on and off the pitch.
