If he goes he goes. In no way do I mean that flippantly. But nobody was more aware of the constraints of the job before coming in than him. Itís like I said on the transfer thread. Barring a miracle, this is it for the foreseeable future.



Exactly this. I think heís more frustrated with some of the dud injury prone signings than anything else.

He knew what he was signing up to.

Hes the 10th longest serving manager out of the 92 clubs in the top 4 divisions.

Lets put this into perspective. He's done very well. He's united our support. He's an Aussi but he's 'one of our own'. A legend. Whatever happens...

If he gets an opportunity to manage at a higher level on much more £. he will of course leave. Like anyone would.

Personally, I think he's probably just falling under the radar of the vultures. If say, we were 4th or 5th...He'd be gorn. But we are 11th. Midtable'sville.

I think, all things equal. He will be here come the start of next season. I bloody well hope he is as well. Because sometimes its not just about results and performances. Its the whole big picture. He's homing in on beating all sorts of records. Love the bloke. I think our love in with Jon will last sometime longer. But you never know whats round the corner!

Listened to JB's post match comments and I have to say I think he was out of order.  I love the guy and have been a big supporter of his from the beginning.

I know it's his passion sometimes but I think he was unprofessional today.  Personally a couple of the things he said should IMO should be kept internally.  I didn't like the way he put down some of the players when he said "look at what I'm having to put on the pitch".  That's his squad 100%.  He was making it clear he doesn't rate some of his players.

While I understand his frustration he needs to remember the club has backed him at crucial times and if the extra budget is not there he has to take his share of the blame for that.  Maybe win a cup game once in a while!

The club gave him the chance to manage in the football league.  They backed him with extra coaching and medical staff.  They backed him with better training pitches, matchday pitches and training facilities.  They backed him in making changes to the recruitment system and data analysis.  They've allowed him to bring in players when the budget has already been spent.

Maybe he should get rid of some of the deadwood in the squad? 

I just checked the NTFC website and the first team squad has 27 players!  That's not including Dyche or Dadge.  It also ignores the youth players that are nowhere near the squad.  I know loads are injured but is the solution just to keep adding more?  What about bringing through some youth players once in a while?  He also has to accept some of the responsibility for injured players though that's difficult to quantify exactly.

He just signed the biggest paid managerial contract the owners have given anyone during their time at the club.  If he was unhappy with things he should have said that and got commitments before signing the deal.

I also agree with Marvo that he's not at the stage yet where he will walk into any other job.  I don't think clubs with money will see him yet as what they need it will be more clubs like us that have to outperform their budget.  That may change if he keeps being successfull but I think he's got a hell of a lot going for him at NTFC.

I love the guy.  It's a bl00dy tough job, today was a bad day at the office and being interviewed 30 mins after a poor performance is not ideal.      Think he should be making a couple of private apologies this week.

I agree with the comments re JB's post match interview - some of the comments made me cringe as well but equally looking at the manner the goals were conceded (particularly the third) the players do warrant some criticism (but for me privately). However JB is a character who wears his heart on his sleeve - I remember after a recent booking he said he had to do better re comments to officials and promptly got booked in the very next game.

Overall the man is doing a great job, performing well at the mid table position - playing football that for the first time is showing Sixfields to be inadequate in terms of capacity - I sincerely hope he is still with us for next season to give us the chance to fight off the "down within two" curse.

The only bit of that I agree with is he should not have throw the players under the bus, probably a quarter of the squad arenít L1 standard and the form of some players like Burge doesnít help.
The rest of it is sycophantic bollox, JB is the best manager since Wilder and Carr, heís filled the stadium week in week out with a decent brand of football, itís only when his tiny first team squad are injured is it poor.

I think he does have to take some of the blame. Some of the players he has brought are simply not good enough e.g. Monthe, hondermark, etc, aren't good enough. I was there yesterday, and the players have to take a lot of the blame for that too, as it was atrocious.

His "look what I am having to put on the field" was regrettable but I think his meaning was that he had half of his first choice 11 missing. Taking the defenders and midfield we had 2 out of the 7 players who would normally be in the team if everybody was fit, Guthrie would be the only defender who would have Sherring alongside and 2 of McGowan, Koiki and Odimayo would be the full backs and then Sowerby and McWilliams would be in midfield. His comment was more a frustration of not having players available for selection.

Add to that i think some mplayers have come back too early from injuries, Willis being pushed to the boundaries and Burge often limping

I hope he can convey to those that are filling the first choices boots. It was a counter productive and unnecessary comment. You canít unwind like that. You have to have more respect for your staff and your employers.

Shock, Jon is human!
Not like some on here who love to jump on anything that is negative about the club.

Let us get safety this year then build the East Stand and squad over the summer for the benefit of all Cobblers fans.

Thatís down to budget surely
If we had an owner with more financial clout than David then we could probably get in more of Jonís first choice targets.

If this works, it starts around 26 minutes.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p0h57jfx
Iíd be pretty pissed off, if I was one of those fringe players, listening to that interview. Obviously not impressed with the quality heís putting out on the pitch. Am I right in thinking that he gave most of those contracts? He was waxing lyrical about Hondermark when he signed him!

He knew the state of the clubs finances when he signed the extension to his contract. Stop moaning, get on with it, and stop playing stupid formations that never work.

I think itís fair to say Jon would be tempted by a different club where he was free to pursue more of his targets.

Jon has performed a fantastic job for us. He deserves our support and the club need to back him. I listened to that interview and felt he was being reasonable and fair - the lads will know they haven't come up to scratch.
