Just a thought.
With the window imminent, I would have thought that the chairman would have been planning on player investment based on forecast increases in turnover in FY22/23 with a completed East Stand.
However, now that's been scuppered again, in the short/medium term at least I'd imagine we'll be making do with the excellent squad we have... Albeit needing a little extra up front.
If I was in charge and saw zero chance of plans being  agreed, I'd keep my wallet shut too.
What does everyone else think?
I'm assuming there will be views that the owners should spend regardless of any return.

We seem to be OK with what we have.
Itís failing to invest and build to stay in the next one thatís the recurring issue.

We  definitely need additions up front and midfield. Well sourced loanee is acceptable for me! Is Ironside coming up for Contract renewal?

Personally, wouldn't mind seeing this happening...

https://footballleagueworld.co.uk/opinion-northampton-town-should-look-to-strike-transfer-agreement-with-luton-town-forward/

Getting Roberts, Horsfall, Koiki & McWilliams tied down to new contracts would also be a priority too, whist trying to possibly offload & replace BAS, Kabamba & Flores...in my opinion!

Also, we still need a head of recruitment, since Foyle left...

I don't think a completed East Stand would really make much of the difference to the playing budget. Any extra income would just reduce the losses. Personally I would like to see us show we can run at a profit, otherwise we are always going to be reliant on external funding

It's January, so unless we are going to splash out on transfer fees and big wages, it's going to be loans, players who have been paid up by other clubs and out of contract. I would hope we can hit the jackpot again with a couple if loan players from the Premier League U23s, the best way to add some quality, but obviously unproven players so may not come off.

So , the starting point is :
There is no budget of significance .
As a result , the better players will not sign new contracts despite what is offered them unless we go up .
Donít hold your breath for a head of recruitment that has to be a magician - the best ones know our situation and will not leave current positions . Itís now down to a scouting network .
New players will come in to replace those failing to perform currently if we can shift them .
it is obvious who the players are .

Not sure its a FACT but I would imagine that whilst JB will want to improve the squad he will also want it slightly smaller so easier to work with.

I would agree with your opinion if we were say 6-10th ish but with us being 2nd and a slight gap opening up I would hope that they see that any investment is a lower risk as the opportunity for promotion is higher. The run of games and league position should also make conversations with players or clubs for loans easier.

Thatís what JB has been told, budgets too are off limits for questions apparently.

I would look at spending any budget on securing deals for out key players tbh

I would also look for a cheap loan Wide forward to to compete with Hoskins, Pinnock and Connolly.

i think itís a good point that our position will encourage loan players .
Also , the record of developing players under our coaches is very good and it does make you wonder if the likes of Spurs and Burnley in particular will help us out .

We have a threadbare squad and definitely need additions in the window....one or two are not up to standard as well.

Pretty sure KT is more interested in the land grab deal than the team. i fear what we want and what we get will be two different matters.
Get rid Flores ashley seal, Kabamba, Pollock may as well go too as he never gets a look in. striker, midfield playmaker in. we will see though

You can add Revan to that list as well. There's no point in keeping him beyond his January loan deal as he has hardly ever been fit to play. Practically another Nuttall.
