A month ago today we were 2nd in the league, 4 points off top with a game in hand, 4 points ahead of the playoff places and 7 points clear of 8th.

A month on we are 5th in the league, 13 points off top with no game in hand, 2 points off automatic places and 2 points clear of 8th.

The wheels have come off.

Reinforcements needed urgently.

Grin

Another one goes from under our noses.

Probably wasn't the right fit for us...

This guy has had minimal Prem Lge experience - 2mins apparently. Has only played 14 games at u23 with two goals one of which was a penalty. He is also a 20yr midfielder.  For me this is another part of your anti club agenda. Reading the posts by some on here, there appears to be a growing protest regarding the negative posts on the transfer thread. Does this concern you?

Now we have people complaining that we have missed out on signing Kasey McAteer. If we had signed him we would have had posters (probably some of the same ones) asking why are we bringing in a midfield player when we need a striker and saying it is another cheap option with a kid who has only played 1 game so far.

Now we have people complaining about people complaining who aren't complaining, with people complaining that they aren't complaining and people getting outraged about the people who are not complaining who will say they were complaining. We need Sue Gray to do a report to sort this out once and for all.

I think most would take Leon Lobjoit unwanted after Paggers, Iaciofano from Oxford, or a random fan from the West Stand at this point.

Please just let us win tomorrow and normal service can be resumed.

How is not having a TV on the wall taking the pi$$? Saying they will sort it out but not doing it
Honestly, I couldn't give a toss about the towel comment, I provided an item that DC wouldn't.
I am just bored of so many negative comments and digs regardless of being a board member, a trust member or in the case of some... Just a feckin member full stop. So if I see that there's a gap in the market where NTFC could make money, me pointing that out is negative Huh??
Every month there seems to be something attacking the club from various posters and it's getting worse.
Thank fully, there are still some people in this world who see things from a positive point of view.

My view:
125 years in the football League.
Some fantastic memories with great people.
The biggest seated capacity we've ever had with the chance of corporate boxes still possible if the spanner stops getting thrown. The "Red book" value is down to the council no one else and they OWN the land
That's it.

Meanwhile, back at the transfer window..... Some signings made who've yet to even kick a ball.

Can I be the "random man from the west stand", 6ft 2ins so a good target man although I cannot be guaranteed to last 90 minutes.

I really admire JB and you can never accuse him of making excuses and not banging the company drum.

“Against Crawley and Forest Green, we put in 42 crosses in those two games so it might be about the quality of the delivery and certain type of runs that we’re working on.
But no-one can say we’re not an attacking side and we’re not a threat. It's just about finding solutions."

Either 42 sh*t crosses or no one on the end of them. There is a bit of a clue there.  Grin

Wonder if this is the interview to signify that we are not expecting any last minute coups.

"we have to work with the players that have helped us get to where we are and give it the best we've got."

This is why I quite favour sticking a Centre Half up front. He might get on the end of the crosses.

I'm not even sure John knows what he is trying to say there.

We slung 42 crosses into the box but nobody finished them. The clue is in your own words John.

Goes onto say...

"Chanka and it could be such a different story for him right now because he could have three or four goals with the chances he's had."

Again part of the problem, he couldn't finish his dinner. At least he is the right fit though. Whatever that fit maybe?

What has happened to BAS. Is he injured or just out of favour?

I wouldn't be so sure. The statement said when the cut off is, not if they missed it., They've done that before

The signing we've all been waiting for, welcome Josh.

Glad to finally land Josh after a long a long pursuit. Many a supporter have been shouting from the rooftops about wanting to sign Eppiah, glad we are the lucky ones for once.

Credit to the Chairman for stretching the budget on this one.

A tad disappointing 28 days into the window to miss the deadline for Saturday by 3 and a half hours. Smacks of incompetence on someone's behalf.

Don't know him but would be in the same position I think for any appointment. Welcome and good luck.
But I would put money on him being signed in time and making at least the bench tomorrow

Just out of my sick bed and noticed we’d signed this chap.
I know nothing of him but I do know that Leicester know a good striker when they see one so I’d be more than hopeful about him.
Yes it’s another loan but to be fair in this case you’re not going to get this lad to sign permanently as he’s probably a bit too good for this level.
