Ian Atkins used to get the groundsman to keep the grass longer in certain parts of the pitch to suit his rugged direct style and Cobblers fans lauded it up. KC does something to gain an advantage and receives criticism from the same fans.
I'm surprised the EFL would actually stop us from training on the pitch, especially if we say we have nowhere safe to train?
You have no idea whatsoever if Cobblers fans 'lauded it up' save for your bubble of pals!
No internet, or certainly forums anyway to gauge opinion then...bit like the increase of Covid cases because of increased testing.
Nevertheless, even if true there are deciding factors... namely, Atkins was quite successful with his brand...Curle has us gasping for air before sinking!

A quick flick through suggests the EFL has no power to dictate frequency of training? Just something about not allowing activities by another party in shared use grounds to take place 48 hours before a game so as not to jeopardise the fixture?

I stopped going after a period when Atkins was in charge because of his methods. I felt we had the squad to play a much better brand of football. He seemed to wallow in us being disliked. He seemed to inhibit our flair players. I also recall his comment that we should regard ourselves as lucky if we witnessed more than half a dozen decent games in a season.

He also had a win percentage of 36% to Curles 39%, so it's not like it actually got better results either.

although at this stage in their Cobblers managerial career there was hardly anything in it.....

Curle has been in charge for 119 games, he's won 47 of those, drawn 30 and lost 43.
After 119 games under Atkins he had won 46, drawn 30 and lost 44......so close!
