I would be annoyed if I was the organiser of Trust Travel, but people are free to travel whoever they like.

People will travel to away games by whatever method, and with who, they want. The suggestion that everyone should travel with the same travel club is laughable. That suggestion didn't go down well many years ago.

I know what you mean but as we all share a common goal, you would have thought 2 travel clubs would be plenty

Just thought a clear the air meeting should have been the 1st call.

After all that Roger and the Trust have done for you and the club over the many years, you can't have a meeting to air your concerns and get more information before jumping ship, or is it amount control and money?Huh?

 

I'd say it's about consequences.

On Jimbo's coach you can even listen to the European Song Contest which for me went down well after the Barrow game!

And then Marvo’s breakaway bus!!

Just to set the record straight, "Marvo's bus" WERE the coaches going under the name "Mounties" named after the place they picked up. The breakaway coach was actually from Jimmy's end, a double decker. The very first coach,an Alec Heads bus from the Mounts was to Aldershot I believe in 1979 though I couldn't swear to that. After Marvo packed up the running of the coaches passed to John White and Les Arnold. At first the coaches were run independently but Marvo was approached by the club to become the official supporters club bus in the era when Derek Banks was chairman. I've no idea why or when they stopped running or whether they amalgamated into another "Brand".

As far as the debate is concerned, I think you need different operators because of different needs. Some people like to have a drink on the way to a game, others are not bothered and like to leave later, possibly because of their own situation, maybe working. Some coaches suit the youngsters that like a noisy singalong, some suit the older more quieter clientele. I think there has always been room for more than one, however it would make sense for them to work together in cases where there is either overspill or not enough fans travelling. Maybe this already happens, I don't know.

The fact that it doesn't makes sense to you may be half the problem though.
Sorry Martin but I think this is a snide comment. I stood up at the front of the coach coming back from Barrow and asked if anyone had problems with the Trust, the stooge 2 rows in front of you stood up and I asked him what the problem was , his answer was "I don't trust them" and he then turned to the rest of the coach like he'd cracked the best joke ever !! So I asked he what didn't he trust and his answer was "I just don't trust them" so there wasn't a lot of point pursuing that conversation. I asked Jim and Barry where would any profits go but didn't receive an answer. I also pointed out the Trust travel hadn't donated any money to the Trust and that was an option that could continue until things became clearer, if that's what the majority wanted
         At the end of the Mansfield game it was left that we would all attend a meeting to try to sort everything out then a week or so later we see Teyn Travel announced saying they have no connection with the Trust but I notice that you are using "Cobblers Travel" on your webpage which is the name that Trust Cobblers Travel use, I think you should remove that ASAP other wise people might get confused. But, best of all your treasurer is a Trust board member and the treasurer of Trust Cobblers Travel !!!!!! He is still the signatory on the cheque books and should have been banking the cash from the Mansfield trip, conflict of interests ??
        I don't have a problem with another breakaway group but I do have a problem with the underhanded way you've gone about it. Like I said in my previous post, a lot of two faced people involved and I'm very disappointed with some people who I thought were honourable and I trusted in the past.

I have to say, I've never got the "teyn" spelling. Despite having lived my whole life in Northampton, having a bit of a local accent myself and having parents that come from generations of Northamptonians (whose accents my wife regularly remarks on the broadness of) I've never picked up on an "ey" sound in the middle of the word town. A slightly cropped "ow" maybe or even an "ew" at a push, but not an "ey".

Same here. I'm a Northamptonian and don't get it either. A bit like that song "to his horse" or whatever it is. I never get that either and I've been supporting the club for over 40 years. Maybe someone could explain its relevance to NTFC?

Google is your friend. Use it wisely and it will reveal. As for "to his horse" or "knock kneed chicken" or "sweet molly malone" or "hawaii 50" to Woody, who cares? just join in and support your team.

No. I don't sing along if I don't like the lyrics or it's not relevant, support comes in many guises my friend. I've done more than my fair share of supporting in the last 44 years.

As for the TEYN thing, still none the wiser but thanks for trying.

Must admit not keen on the "horse" song although in the '76 Dodgin promotion year we sang it with the words "Saying goodbye to the fourth." Maybe it stems from that and it sounded better. As for not getting the teyn thing, surely you've heard the phrase; "Gooing deyn teyn in me breyn treysers."  Seynds very Northamptonian me old duck.

Apparently if you are unaware of the 'teyn' bollocks then you ain't a true Northamptonian I have been told by the Husk. I can go back at least 4 generations of my family living in Northampton and although I have managed to escape I have absolutely no recollection of the term.

Well in all my years of supporting the Cobblers, spanning nearly 70 years... this chant comes. from a random view on the Supporters Coach ....."of looking out the bus windows and seeing a guy stabling his horse ".... as simple as that. In those days the chants were more improvised & spontaneous !!

Maybe this already happens, I don't know.

I remember clearly that Marvo started organising coaches having broken away from travelling with the Mounties in early 1988...in fact me and a mate were on our way to the Mounts to catch a Mounties coach, to Bury I think it was, when we were approached by other Cobblers fans saying "come on our coach"...... that was the Marvo organised one and we then went on that coach for all the remaining games of the 1987-88 season. John White and Les Arnold were already running the Mounties coaches at this time and had been for a couple of seasons.

The best chant was the ‘undefeated’  simple to sing which got better as the winning just kept going. Did well to keep going after Holmes left! Personally I thought he made a big mistake in leaving.
