Cobblers have less ambition than most,every time they get promoted they take two steps backward and poorly invest money on transfers on anyone half decent they sell on at a more negative rate than most other lower league clubs.In a way it beggars the question why do the Cobblers seek promotion when they don't survive for long when they do go up.Not negative vibes just statistical reality.

Examples? The sale of Toney comes to mind, but struggling to think of any others.

The ones that angered me at the times, in no particular order...

1. Mark Bunn - 500k. I think we should have held out for more, kept him longer, paid him more etc. I believe Blackburn sold him on for 1 million, after he'd hardly played a game.
2. Bradley Johnson - 250k? Which was absolutely, utterly ridiculous!
3. Ivan Toney - 500k? Crazy. But I recall there being a big debate at the time, a lot of our fans didn't rate him much. Subjective one maybe.
4. Michael Jacobs - whatever it was, it was no where near enough. Proven as his career progressed.

Since KT has been here, the only one that miffed me was Ricky Holmes. I have never understood to this day why we sold him days after the season had finished rather than invite a dutch auction! There must have been something said/agreement in place/clause in his contract or something, guess we will never know.

I could go back further - Micky Bell, Steve Brown were both sold too cheap. Bobby Barnes and Tony Adcock!  Grin

Infact, when did we ever 'rob' a club? I cant recall it ever bloody happening!

Sure it came up in the accounts in a round about way? Remember that figure being bandied around.

But I get your point!  Grin

I think the ex chairman might be the only person that knows the true figure - along with the police investigation !

I was under the impression that Toney was sold to Newcastle for more like 150,000 not half a mill. Also Adcock and Barnes were sold on the cheap by the administrators because we were broke. Fire sale!

Our owners are culpable for us being to L2 with their botched managerial appointments

They're also culpable for us still being in the football league.

Im sure McRitchie sold them during the protesting period, I remember the administrators arriving and making redundant a load of players which culminated in us playing a very youthful team at Barnet on the Saturday straight afterwards.

Henderson's a good one, but then I wasn't thinking of players who have 'made it' after we'd got shot of them. There's been a fair few, Steve Morrison, Billy McCay or whatever his name was. More a case of those who were clearly very good, in demand but we let go without really trying to keep them. Think Pboro...they give their players improved contracts etc, then get more money for them a bit further down the line.

With Pierre, a combo of his age, his current hefty wage, not wanting to be here, 1 year left on his contract etc...we were best off taking the money.

I've just thought of another one mind...Steve Howard! 50 fcuking grand we got for him!!!

Did we get ripped off with Luke Chambers too? He's been a very solid Championship defender for over 10 years, sold when he was 21 after played over 100 games for us and we were in League One at the time. Should have got a decent fee for him?
