I seem to remember that Rochdale outplayed us in the 1-1 draw at their place earlier but with our recent dramatic improvement and increased motivation off the pitch, I am hopeful for tomorrow. However, whatever the result, I would like to think we can persevere with the current set up.

Why have all the odds on the next manager been removed from The Sack Race  Huh? This normally happens just before a new manager is announced. Anyone know the reason?

I don't need to panic anymore  Grin. The odds are back up folks! Still don't understand why they disappeared. Did they get wind of an announcement that didn't materialise?

I know there is a rump of opinion on here that journeymen managers are the way forward for NTFC but I beg to disagree.

For an achievable 5 yr plan of Div 1 establishment and regular pushing for promo, I want people running my club that have a genuine commitment to it - not a purchased one.

Which is why i like this quote from JB:
"My three children were born in Northamptonshire so I like to think I'm an adopted Northamptonian and it's the same for Rico and Sammo. It means a lot to us because this is our county.”

Coincidentally I get a similar effect when I hear the word c***.

Quite - he will probably save BR. I thought all those who thought that surviving in L1 was paramount now say  that they will chuck up a capable Manager based on some whimsical moral stand point.

I assume the club are simply waiting for us to win a game before announcing Jon Brady?

I never thought BRFC would be down there at the end of the season - with or without Mr Barton.
Yep, I want the Brady Bunch even if it means going down but I honestly believe they can keep us up.

Not really sure what / who you want Evers? You seem to be keeping your cards close to your chest.

That is so true, you get certain people on here that will put the same theory in everything they post seemingly no matter what the topic is, then suddenly others are repeating it as if it’s fact.

I'll start then.
I think Dean Austin and Terry Fenwick would both have turned out to be very good managers for us had they been given more time.
There, done it. Need to repeat every morning though.
Apart from Evers, how many people do we suppose will be accepting of the above by a/ KO b/March c/end of season d/end of pandemic?

Sounds french to me....never trust a Frenchman.
Ha...there's another.

I actually thought that Dean Austin COULD have been a very good manager for us, and anyone who went to Colchester in August 2018 would have to agree, we were superb, one of the best Cobblers performances since Wilder. But something, obviously went on in the dressing room soon after as the players just stopped playing for him and the rest is history.

People in Hartlepool aren’t that keen on the French either.

I think calling them "a bunch of arseholes" or whatever it was in one of his post match interviews probably didn't help on that score...

Maybe you should have used his pen name of Voltaire who was great Liberal thinker! Are you a follower of Voltaire?

Paul Cook for me

With KC I personally did not join in the personal abuse thrown at him. I liked his tactics in getting us promotion which was widely supported on this forum but questioned his style of play in L1 especially when he did not have suitable players to perform the system. Because I did not jump on the bandwagon of vitriolic comment does not mean I was an absolute supporter of KC. In fact after the Crewe(a) game it was obvious he was struggling. With a depleted side he has more or less kept us out of the relegation zone. Most of us realised that L1 would be difficult and so it has proved

Along with most on here I hope JB does well in the next two games; well enough to get the job for the rest of the season. I also firmly believe we should make every effort to remain in L1 and share JB’s views on this in yesterday’s Chronicle.
