Didn't back yourself with hard cash then?
Just like you won't back up your opinions by asking the one man who has the answers, KT?

Remember, you have to speculate to accumulate  Smiley Smiley
Itís not up to any fan to have to constantly ask questions for the last four years
Itís like Groundhog Day
We had all this having to ask questions with DC

How about some update for the fans without them having to chase around for answers....

The main one that Iím waiting to hear is the explanation as to why when the council have allowed KT to start his redevelopment has there been zero progress.

Even the most ardent supporter must be starting to realise that the lack of work is a bit strange....

As an aside
Did the Peterborough fans have to question darragh mcanthony at posh every couple of months for years on end to get their new stand built or did he just get on with it , spend the money and get it built?

Did the saints fans have to question the owners over progress every couple of months to get their new stand built or did they just get on with it , spend the money and get it done?

Did Brentford fans have to question their owners every couple of months to get an entire stadium built from scratch or did they get on with it , spend the cash and get it done?

All of these were started long after our fabled redevelopment that has gone on approaching a decade under two chairman who still havenít started!!!

As I understand it am I right in saying the council have given permission for work to start months ago?

All Iím showing here is how others have got things done whilst we havenít started.

I assume itís ok to feel a little frustrated at the situation?

Romany shut some ago - it was quite popular in its time!
The Billy was the best pub ever in the eighties. I have seen flame throwers. people bringing their pet ducks in, cross dressers, sow many bikes being parked outside, pushbikes outside, fantastic bands, And do you know what? I Felt safe. And enjoyed myself

I remember entering the billy some 25 years ago when myself and some friends were on a pub crawl.
We entered with some trepidation but again once inside you felt safe enough.
It wasnít particularly my scene but it felt like a badge of honour going in and coming out in one bit
To be fair everyone there was friendly.
It actually felt more dangerous in saddlers or the racehorse.

I went on a fair few pub crawls up the welly road and despite being well pissed never had any trouble but I wasnít looking for any and myself and my friends always had a good night out when up the welly road....

I did however once get thrown out of Glenvilles when it was easier to get thrown in there.
I was very tipsy and it was a early summers evening
The club had big blackout curtains and as I fell over I grabbed one to soften the fall but ended up pulling it down and as it was summer it lit the club up like someone had turned a light on.

I was soon out on my arse Grin

I remember one of the bouncers was a large black lady (I assume I can still say that)
She was a top lass but didnít take any **** !!!

Happy memories

What this has to do with the future of KC I donít know but it feels good to reminisce. Grin

We all feel the frustration!

The fans of those other teams didn't have to ask questions because their new stands were built, ours isn't and hence the questions.

You ask all the right questions but ask the wrong people, none of us on here can give the answers you crave. The delays may be because of leases, planning permission, logistics, covid or simply lack of funds, I don't know, who does?

At least try asking KT or NBC. Post their answers ( or lack of them ) on here. Maybe you'll lead a crusade.

As an aside, I see that the  Romany, and the King Billy have shut their doors for good.
But neither of those sponsor the Cobblers or have any real connection...aside from the tenuous link of the King Billy being where Shrewsbury's EBF came under a sustained attack from the NAT!  Wink

I was inside that night and the NAT never got past the door. Some big burly bikers saw to that. A few broken windows and that was it.

Growing up around there in the early 80s you had 2 options before Syphilrella Cockyfellas opened on a Friday and Saturday night. That was The Romany or The Five Bells.Ē? Or for the connoisseur, both.

incidentally who remembers the almighty fracas in the Romany before the FA Cup game with Villa fans in 81?

Does anybody know why there was a Rushden and Diamonds sign outside the Romany?
Surely they could find somewhere closer to home.

Does anyone remember when after Northampton hosted It's a Knockout in the 70's, one of the cowboy/western chuck wagons, used for one of the races, was on top of the entrance to the Romany?  It was there for quite a while if I remember rightly?

If you were inside, your memory is deceiving you!
1. It wasn't night - around 5pm.
2. Certainly more than a few broken windows...a couple on both sides badly injured - but yes from glass!

Sure you were there???

It was after 5 PM, as i had been to the game, and it would have taken a while to walk down there. Big Neil from the Lupus biking club wrapped his arms around the doors. And just stood there. Yes I was inside. And you never got in. Broken windows count for nothing. No further comment.

The lads involved on both sides were not at the game.
I will in my Sherlock Holmes (though Sheehan & Holmes preferable) role deduce, you were not there at time of event and missed it! Some hairy biker embellishing a story with his bottle of Hooch, and passing it around to any wide eyes in attendance!
