Are we restarting the "five year plan?"

In my opinion this signing frees Johnson to move back to right back if needed to give Crowe a rest.

Plus another set-piece taker to rival Jacobs. As we have seen us switching to a 4-3-3/4-5-1 type formation a centre three of Harding Johnson and Guttridge shouldn't be bad at all when we have Saido, Asante, Jacobs, Robinson and Young to pick from for wing men.

Mentioning Robinson I really would like to see him play out on the right with Jacobs on the left with Saido as lone striker. Guttridge making runs into the box with Harding while Johnson does the boring stuff sees us quickly change into a five man attack.

Your thoughts?

He was probabably the best player on the pitch when we played down at Aldershot at the beginning of the season.


As he was down there the season before when Ben Harding equalised for them at about quarter past five...!

He's exactly the type of player we need. Some creativity in midfield. Someone get on the blower to Poul Hubertz!

He's the type of player we have needed all season. I just hope he stays injury-free (seem to recall he had a fair few last time he was here) but he certainly looked decent when he played against us for Aldershot down at their place earlier in the season. Not unhappy about this at all.

But where, or where, is this striker we were supposed to have signed at the beginning of the week?

It has to be "B"
Another big smile on my face. I always get the big decisions right.

Couldn't be happier, you can all blame me if it turns pear shaped. Up next year without a doubt and no need of the play-offs.

It's incredible the number of former players that have come back for a second spell with us this season- that must be about half a dozen by now?

Happy to have him back though, a player I really rated in his first spell here.

By the way, I'd love to hear the views of the morons who were booing him on our last couple of trips to Aldershot...

I'll never understand people who boo former players, especially when they were alright for us but WE released THEM. What are they supposed to do, never get another job in football and spend the rest of the lives mourning the fact they'll never again play for the mighty Northampton Town?! It's different when players leave under a cloud like Coke, Jackman or Gilbert but booing someone simply for playing for someone else is just stupid.

And don't get me started on those that boo players that we went out and sold, like those divs who booed Chambers at Forest...

Hmmm I liked him when he was here before but didn't he have attitude problems? I seem to remember seeing a number of photos of him drunk and smoking - Not something you really expect a professional footballer to have on his facebook? More the smoking thing than the drinking.

I'm not sure how I feel about this signing, firstly it is rather odd we seem to be re-signing players from a few years back, I can't quite get my head around it. With Guttridge I think you only have to read Aldershot fans views on him leaving to see that he is still a decent player for this level so on that basis he has to be a decent addition I guess. IF he stays injury free then he will do well for us, where he fits into the team? I have no idea, that is down to AB of course. As for his supposed off field antics, I personally don't care what the players do in their spare time, provided it is all legal antics of course, if they choose to drink and smoke then so be it as long as they still perform on the pitch then who cares?! Footballers are humans aswell, yes they are in the limelight as such but you'll be surprised how many footballers do smoke, crazy in this day and age of fitness regimes/dieticians etc I know. I couldn't care if it turns out Guttridge is a massive tw@t but if he is the man to spark our revival then I and I'm sure the rest of the supporters will be over the moon.
