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.

You can't say something is a failure if you haven't tested it. That's really stupid.

They could only be right if we'd invested and then failed. Lincoln have PROVEN it was possible for a team in our position to have still made the play-offs.

The sad thing is that Lincoln didn't really do a lot in January either..... I mean its not like they splashed out thousands on transfer fees. They picked up a player upon completion of the League of Ireland season and therefore completion of his contract in Moylan, they picked up Joseph Taylor on loan from Luton after he had been recalled from his loan for the first half of the season at League 2 Colchester, and they got Conor McGrandles on loan from Charlton. They also recalled Freddie Draper from Walsall where he had been on loan and stuck him back in their team.

Since New Years Day and since making the squad changes above they are unbeaten in 13, have won 8 of the last 10, have scored 16 goals in three games, and attracted over 9300 to their home game against Bristol Rovers today.

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.

Turnover in players is that rapid that I donít think it matters this is only their 7th season back in the league. We saw Lloyd Jones turn down more money with us to play in league one with Cambridge, so this is their fifth season with that advantage compared to our first. In terms of budget there probably isnít a significant difference (though not sure manny will agree), but for probably a number of reasons at present there squad for me has far more quality than ours. If you believe that with Moulden in goal and the injuries that a couple of better signings (we did bring in Moore & Gape) would have produced a possible playoff place thatís fine but not for me, Iíd rather see the money spent on next seasonís campaign.

I dream of even having the ability to get that many in our ground.  Smiley

You do talk crap. We didn't make the play-offs because we didn't strengthen.

It's like me saying if you put sugar in your tea it will be sweeter and you saying it wouldn't, then not putting sugar in your tea and claiming you were right. Utter rubbish.

Wrexham and Carlisle two of the sides that invested most in January on their teams are both averaging less points per game after Ďstrengtheningí than they were before. I guess sometimes you end up putting salt in your tea not sugar!.

Yes, it was a gamble but if you don't buy a ticket, you can't win the jackpot.

Agreed - fool and their money are soon parted. Considering Lincoln are not in the plays off yet with 7/8 games to go so anything can happen.

Certainly doing better than us and encouraging more people to go and watch them. Although we aren't able to encourage many more to fit in our ground.

Supporting Northampton is not for faint hearts! We have to support the team even more now; we beat Lincoln easily a few weeks back. A winning side attracts supporters, gird you loins people and make a fight of it.

It's not about whether they make the play-offs, it was whether it was possible, or are you now saying that 2 points behind with 7 games to go is too big of a gap to make up? Remember we were 4 points better off than Lincoln, had a game in hand and as you have just said yourself, beat them easily.
