Haha Shoey!!

The "couple of strikers" are Korboa and Nuttall

Anyone signed today is now too late to be registered to play in the game tomorrow anyway, so we go with what we've got.
Donít be so negative
We have money to sign players as other posters keep informing us
Do you really think we are going to start the season with a player signed from seven levels below and a striker who has failed to show that he is a force in this division??

This isnít your local Sunday league club
We have owners and a manager that know what is needed at the higher division and they have known for ages that quality is needed and have said as much.

Iím very excited to see who our star players will be.

Thereís plenty of league one teams who have rushed in and signed the quality they need but they are all wrong.
They will learn their lessons at the end of the season when we have gained promotion and can also brag to other fans about our good housekeeping.

It is something that as a club we should be putting at the forefront of the forthcoming season.

Other teams may have got better quality players but weíve got proper housekeeping and even at 4-0 down at sixfields on  a cold February night nothing would make me more proud of the club than our housekeeping.

That will do for me as I look across at the rapid progress on our redevelopment and I can pinch myself to think how lucky we are as fans to have owners with the finance to redevelop the ground out of their own pockets with only minimal delay.

Not every club can say they have owners like ours.
Yes they may have on field success with players who fire the imagination but look around their grounds and see how they compare to ours and thatís without mentioning the good housekeeping.

Others may avoid relegation
Others may even gain promotion and win trophies but when it comes to the football leagues good housekeeping award there will only be one winner

It brings a tear to my eye thinking of it already and if we do come up short and go straight back down I do hope the club will enable fans to have their photo taken with a set of the clubs last accounts and any good housekeeping trophies we may be awarded

Exciting times ahead
Strap yourselves in

Come on cobblers you are the best.

Just a reminder.... one game, no replays, no extra time...... scores level after 90 mins its straight to penalties.

The draw for the second and third round will be made together on Sunday 6th, with matches to be played over the midweeks of 15/16 September and 22/23 September.

Second round unseeded but still regionalised, third round draw will be neither seeded or regionalised.

Carabao (League Cup) prize money has always been poor.....

Stange though that the EFL Trophy carries a £10,000 per game win bonus whereas the EFL Cup is only £5,000 in the first round!

Iím not sure I can recall a more ineffective (on paper) front 3 than smith, Korboa and warburton - a massive opportunity for all 3 though I suppose.

Bit harsh on Korboa as he has never played league football before, but certainly agree with the other two.

As case of needs must but would rather an extra midfielder than see Warburton on the pitch, he couldn't hack the pace of L2 let alone anything better than that.

Fair enough about Korboa but I didnít even notice he was playing in the 2 friendlies. Looking at Cardiffís lineup it might be the case that they are missing some players but they still look very strong - some massive centre backs (even with flint on the bench) so set pieces should be interesting.

Well done KC and the team. Encouraging games by the new recruits.

No sign of the 'doom mongers' Manwork and Shoemaker.....what a suprise!

KC intermated striker, midfielder and central defender are being targeted.

In fairness to Manny, think you need to check the match thread  Wink Grin

Iím lovin Rocky, get in there boy.

Get in, this cups in the bag.

TBH mate we are more than matching them, as youíd expect not much up front, really solid at the back.
Weíve been pressing well, hope we donít run out of steam.

Really well played town.
With the addition of a couple of strikers a midfielder and defensive cover we should be ok.
