They have just scored 5, 6 and 5 in three games. Do you know when the Cobblers last did that?

Lincoln are making all you lot who said it couldn't be done look like mugs. No wonder you are trying distraction tactics. It won't work, we can see you.

Wrong again Marvo, most people were saying it couldn't be done by NTFC, they have been proven right, alot of people don't care about other teams. Your just making yourself look like a mug.

So you are all claiming that Lincoln are a bigger club than the Cobblers and can do things we can't? Okay, fair enough.

You need to show just a little more respect to all Cobblers Fans and their differing opinions!

Youíre wasting your breath Marvo, most cobblers fans are just happy we are a league team, good old KT he saved us.
Personally I agree with you a little investing and we could have been Lincoln.

Why? I am not giving any respect to so called fans who write the club off with four months of the season left. It is any wonder the club show so little ambition.

Now the players are mirroring these supporters, they've stopped trying to.

No but Lincoln are far more established in League 1 and have had the chance to build a squad with far more quality than ours. Up to January 1st we were massively overachieving while they were underperforming so there was far more scope for them to improve than us. Unfortunately we lost a keeper and replaced him with a massively inferior player. We have had a lot of injuries. Marriott a potential signing but out of our price range has done nothing at league 2 Wrexham. Carlisle have spent big and done nothing so itís no guarantee you will improve.

Of course there are no guarantees but that doesn't mean you just give up!

As for over achieving, well, if you say so. Maybe Atkins, Carr and Bowen overachieved, I'm not sure this counts. Worse run of form for three years.

Itís not about giving up itís about how we spend our limited finances. As ntfclad said any extra money spent in this winter window would reduce next seasonís budget.

I was talking about the  position we were in at the turn of the year with the quality of players at our disposal, which was definitely overachieving for me and perhaps why itís not really a surprise that our form has dropped.

Our limited finances will be affected by the 1000 or so fewer fans through the gates per home game (excepting the Derby one) because form, results and performances have dropped off the cliff.

But why couldn't it? In both games against Lincoln this season we proved we were better than them. January came around, they pushed on, invested in the squad & signed players where they needed to improve, and now they're better than us. If they could do that, we 100% could have as well.

Whilst I understand the decision to perhaps save the funds & invest in the summer, it seriously needs to work otherwise we'll find ourselves following the usual pattern for us at this level, heading back to League Two within a couple/few seasons & then wondering why we didn't at least try to take an opportunity when it was available.

Jesus Marvo, just because people dont agree with you , you start throwing your toys out the pram. People stated at the start of this thread that NTFC would not be able to mount a challenge for the playoffs this season, they have been proven 100% correct. Investment rightly or wrongly was never going to happen, we all wish it was. Now they have been proven correct you're saying they're not real fans ? Grow up for christs sake.

Thats nonsense. How can they be correct when we didn't strengthen (like Lincoln). We've no idea how we would have done, a decent goalkeeper alone would have made a massive difference. The only thing that has been proven is that a team in our position at the start of January had every chance of making the play-offs.

They've only been in league 1 for 4 years and only been back in the league for 6 years having spent a similar length of time in the non league wilderness. So you could say that we're far more established in the football league than them and have had the chance to build a squad with far more quality than theirs. We're similar sized clubs and I can't imagine they have a massive budget or splashed out stupidly to bolster their squad in the window. But they certainly managed to snap up some very good players and at least greatly improved the match day experience, scoring lots more goals , enticing more fans to the ground and giving themselves a decent chance of the play offs. Whereas we're going the other way. I'm with Marvo on this.

Im not doubting that we had a chance if investment had happened but it didnt, but people said the  wouldn't happen and that the Cobblers wouldn't make the playoffs, So yes they were correct, i know its hard for you to admit you're wrong, but there you go.
