Apparently Mr Boarman thinks this represents success  Grin

Absolutely, especially compared to a good few of the last 35 years especially (don't forget Wink). This time last year I would have took where we are now, wouldn't you? - Serious question.

It would be great to see us doing a Wycombe, we have been close twice in my time BUT ambition is a double edge sword. Without a solid financial foundation it could hurt us badly. No club has a solid financial foundation in these times.

Staying in this league would be good. Playing some decent football would be a bonus. Staying solvent is essential, and sacking managers is expensive.

Can’t disagree with any of that, would be very happy to stay in this division BUT there simply has to be more entertainment.

How many games into the season were we before Edinburgh got binned?

Six.....four defeats from 4 in the league, a 1-0 defeat at QPR in the League Cup, and a penalty shootout win over Cambridge in the Trophy which proved to be his last game in charge.

But he left it too late to bin JFH. KT admitted this after the season ended and we were relegated I seem to remember.

I would add that the football on offer is WORSE than the utter drivel offered up by JFH.

And, worse than the football offered up by Page. At least we didn't get absolutely battered by a non league outfit, just merely beaten.

So KC is here for the foreseeable  Roll Eyes

He's assembled a poor L2 squad with no leaders or the quality needed to compete in L1 (bar Sheehan & Holmes who were desperate non contract signings anyway), yet he met all the signings face to face at least twice to make sure they had the characteristics needed.

He's now entrusted to recruit in the hardest  transfer window...ie January!

Smacks of JFH all over again...

Happy Christmas everyone!

I sense a bit of melodramatic disappointment with some of the comments on here Evil.  Yet not one thought for poor old Squadron Leader Dan DFC  whose whole 'Raison d'etre' was the abrupt demise of the great Keith. Possibly GPC as well who has worked tirelessly to achieve the same result. Bad luck chaps your turn may yet come?  As it is now the party season am not sure if all you guys were to hold a party it might be pretty low on Esprit de corps! Chin up chaps!
Talking to one of the lovely office ladies she reminded me of the truly generous offer by one fan who although an ST insisted he should still pay for his tkt!
Any ideas who that true gent and supporter might be?

I normally read and don't post but I have got a bit tired of the more vocal and active online perceiving themselves as the majority of opinion.

The football is poor, but I do not see an alternative with the current budget and staff whoever is in charge. We lost pretty much a whole team at the end of last season. If we had started this season with the same team I think the difference in level would have showed. Having to put a new team together with much of the quality from last year gone was always going to be a huge challenge.

Having been a Cobblers fan for many years, and being a realist, I would have taken our current League position had I have been offered it at the start of the year. We could have been going in to Christmas already dead and buried. As it stands we have a chance of staying at this level. I would much rather go in to January with Curle knowing the limitations of what he has got, and with an idea of what needs to be added to keep us in this league.  

Hitting the panic button in December when you are not rock bottom could cost a lot more than it gains. It is frustrating when you combine a bad run or results with crap football, but change is not always the answer and the vocal 'majority' would do well to remember things can get a lot worse. If we change managers now we could end up with worse than what we have (it has happened before!), and paying to get a new manager in is going to cost us players on the pitch or increasing the budget, which could hurt us beyond this season.

To all the "Curle out" believers - what did you expect, and do you really think it was realistic?

Beginning to warm to your sentiments  - such steadfast common sense related comments. Keep it up!

Hello Evers old chum, I thought KT spoke well and if he back KC in Jan then we may stay up, KC needs to change his style of play and just play like we did in the play offs.
UTC.

As always old chap truly magnanimous. Well played Cool
