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

That's if he wants the job  Wink

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 JBís views on this in yesterdayís Chronicle.


IF we go to external recruitment it just HAS to be Paul Cook so I concur Evers old chum.

No chance of Paul Cook. He turned down Cardiff. Hes waiting for a large championship side at worst.

Short term Contract might entice him - to get a job you need a job goes an old saying!  If he does well here the world is his oyster😏

I would think the opposite, at the moment he has a good standing, why manage a club with a very high chance of relegation and possibly have that on your record. In terms of reputation it seems husk risk for little gain as even if he kept us up I donít that that monumental achievement would get the recognition it deserved.

Judging by his interviews he really wants the job. However, I think tonight might be his last chance

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.
The fact that you think he will save BR doesn't mean he will. He might, he might not. My opinion that JB may be a better option than Barton is not 'a whimsical moral stand point' that you feel obliged to imprint on every other supporter. I would like to feel free to have my own reasons for having an opinion and not be forced to have my every thought controlled by the 'thought police'.

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.
I went to this game and I agree with you. Lots of sun and a bit of rain.

He's never been asked, why? I suppose we'll find out soon.

Grin Any chance of clarification please?  Cool


Sorry Evers, I referenced you because Jim Hall also did.
Can't speak for Mr Hall but I'm very appreciative of Voltaire, have you read him, I imagine you have.
Have we seen a finer empirical polemicist?

I was there too. New ground for me.
I think what he said what he did about the players after the Mansfield game when it already over for him?

I liked what Brady has tried but heís falling short. We need goals and he leaves a proven goalscorer on the bench until the last 5 mins. Having faith in Edmundson is a big mistake

Any more thoughts from anyone? Are we now in the situation where only an old experienced head will do, the sort of manager who you bring in to try and avoid relegation...a bit like when we got Curle in?

Can't see the likes of Brady, Matt Gray, Kevin Wilkin et al being entrusted with the current situation.

So who does that leave?? There's not a lot out there to be honest......

I think proven goal scorer is a bit generous! Rose has 4 goals in about 24 games. This season our attacking options are woeful, having  said that Iíd rather have Rose above Edmondson every time.

Thatís my point really, RE just doesnít have that instinct. I would definitely have got Rose on earlier even if he played two up top... we (he) needed a win
