Iíve no idea if he still has pace but he would bring outstanding hair to a squad that is sadly lacking in the hairstyles department.
I also think we need to recruit some more facial hair especially with the loss of Paul Anderson.

Itís not always the best team that wins promotion but itís been proved time and time again that your chances of success on the pitch are greatly enhanced with special hairstyles and burgeoning facial hair.

Ikechi Anya would be an outstanding signing given this criteria.

I often go on about better quality proven players needing to be signed but to be fair even I can see this chap will be a perfect fit for us and the way we play.
He is surely the McCormack replacement and looks to me to be a hybrid of o toole and McCormack what with the vision and passing range of McCormack and the ball winning of o toole.
Iíve never heard of him to be fair but he looks a proper 100% player that the northampton fans always take too.
I can see him becoming a fan favourite and itís good we have found a midfield ball winner because they are surprisingly hard to come by.
Iíd imagine he will start with McWilliams back up and still recovering/learning.

Welcome Christopher.
Give your all and the fans will back you.

I was pretty sad when he left last time round, but that was probably 10 years ago now & he was very reliant on pace.

That roller coaster of emotions

-Yes we are going to sign Anya!
-Oh no we missed out
-Wait what "Sevilla" , WTF ?

There were some extremely optimistic whispers around George Thomas to Cobblers, he's now signed for QPR yesterday

Anya would be a great but realistic signing, as pointed out low on game time but a proven Chamionship level player with decent Prem experience in the twilight of his career now.

Young, exciting wingers are the next most sought after players and some of the most expensive so finding some quality in ageing wide players and shorter deals is quite sensible. Adams, Anya and Marshall all 32+ but I'd be happy with that!

Anya is NEVER going to happen plus he's injury prone which goes against everything KC has stated he wants in a player.

He's stated he needs players available Saturday/Tuesday. Also, Anya will be on decent wages and we ain't (nor should we) pay big wages for anyone is the current climate.

I'd rather have that winger who tormented us at home playing for Morecambe last season.

Carlos Mendes Gomes but he already signed an extension with them.

Anya was on £27k a week at Derby apparently. Obviously hes not going to get offered anything close to that now he hasn't played in 2 years but he's not going to be cheap... and therefore a massive **** given his age and recent fitness record. Will almost certainly have to drop to L1 to get a game though.

Well, we allegedly didn't give Turnbull a contract because we didn't think he'd be motivated to play with the lower wages offered, so I think we can discount offering something to someone on Anya's wages.

Exactly..................and surely Turnbull's position was more significant than Anya's especially as we already have Adams and Marshall and various others who can cover e.g. McWilliams, Hoskins, Martin ?

Turnbull also offered a potential transfer fee going forward.

Let's invest in youth and the up and comers with ambition.

I also note that there is now some evidence/plan that the whole of next season will be played out with significant restrictions to the gate. Lower anticipated income must mean lower player's salaries.

From what I am reading contract offers are only going to get smaller as more and more players become desperate to get signed. They shouldnít be surprised if they end up taking half what they may have been offered at the end of the season? 1 year contract and if you donít pull your weight you get the chop in January will be the norm for the foreseeable future? And thatís if you are one of the lucky ones whoís club doesnít fold before the end of the season? The Bosman ruling playing out to its logical conclusion, it was only a matter of time!

Only one person in this thread has any clue whatsoever, but I don't think it's likely, no. Think it'd have been more likely if it wasn't just yet another ex-player being linked, like Bayo or Holmes.

Keith Downie, Sky News NE England reporter said this afternoon that Middlesborough are seriously in for Charlie Goode

Neil Warnock has approached Northampton Town for their captain Charlie Goode. QPR also interested. The centre back is valued at £750,000.

If he was to leave, what is a realistic fee you'd be happy with..?

£750k would still be our club record transfer fee out yes!?

Am told the bids for Goode so far are just shy of £500k so a bit of work to do for any buying clubs

Also itís both Boro and QPR whoíve bid

Goode is obviously a good centre back, but so was Pierre and we replaced him and Im confident we'll do so again for money that will keep us safe with during the danger times.

He's strong and confjdent on the ball, but hes not the complete defenser and does have to rely on the dark arts to bail himself out at times. So yeah, I think 750k would be a fair price for him.
