I see Harry came off the bench and nearly scored a dramatic last minute equaliser against Celtic - cleared off the line.
Maybe we need to get him back for this big week we’ve got coming up ??!!

All would have been forgiven in my eyes if he’d have scored.

A snide comment of your own there, if you don't mind me saying?

From my own point of view, I'm not impressed by the football we are playing but I want KC to succeed because he's the current Cobblers manager.
This means I'm not a hard core Curle Out(er) or a devout Happy Clapper.
The supposedly superbly run Swindon Town are "on the brink" whilst "rotten to core" NTFC are said to be financially secure. At present I will be happy if we survive in League 1 by any means, do I hope for better in the future? Yes, of course!

I like to think I am a "realist".
Very well put EB. Spot on post.

Probably similar to what the majority on this board would write if they didn't think that the minority would attack/criticise it... Wink

You don't really see natural goal scorers lying around on the scrap heap, but surely theres an out of contract goalkeeper you can bring in. Bunn, Nicholls, Adam Smith... an in form keeper makes such a massive difference to a team, with a relatively low price.

Totally agree, the two we have are bang average L2 keepers, there must be a decent out of contract keeper out there.

I think Alisson proves as well, and Hart in the latter end of the career, as it doesn't even matter if you're a good keeper, if you're in poor form and making bad mistakes then you're going to scupper anything your team is able to do.

Yep, the most important individual position on the pitch.

Chaps, I think we’re missing Jumbo sitting in the corner ...
The best goalie in the world doesn’t fix one goal in 7 games!

Mitchell and Arnold are good enough to keep us up. That was one huge error on Saturday but he will have learnt from it. I think both of our keepers are a step up from Dai C last year. They haven’t had the benefit of 3 reliable centre backs this season!

Currently there should only be 3 recruitment priorities ...
1) A striker
2) Proven record of scoring goal
3) Not a loanee

You don't really find many of those sitting around out of contract though. Liverpool had Salah up front, and they still bottle it against Leicester and City because their keeper made some poor mistakes. I don't think this is the only game Mitchell and Arnold have lost us points, and certainly when Mark Bunn was in goal for us he was earning points by himself. I think getting an upgrade on the keeper is going to be a cheaper and easier fix then working out how you score goals with this team.

After yesterday’s mix up you seem right!  Due to iFollow camera angle I originally thought it was unintentional but most of their players appealed for a back pass! More to the point was the defending on the line which has not attracted too much comment.

Decently long list of free agent strikers avaliable although it sure how up to date this is...

"Free agents | Transfermarkt" https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/spieler/vertragslosespieler/statistik/1/plus//galerie/0?ausrichtung=alle&spielerposition_id=14&land_id=189&altersklasse=&wettbewerb_id=alle&seit=alle&yt0=Show

Even someone like Cody mcdonald at 36 would be an upgrade on what we have. Also junior morias I hadn't noticed had gone on loan to Boreham wood, he would improve what we have.

To keep us up there needs to be a couple of player incomings imp, so the manager situation needs sorting now one way or other so that can happen.

Holmes has joined Southend. Just when we started using a formation to suit him...
