Give Random some credit, he is stating the truth.  Come up with your pathetic apologies for the club's ownership if you will but when you do tell us how the profits of the CDNL land are going to find their way to the NTFC.


Not sure if that is aimed at me if so doesnít make
sense?

Not aimed you Everbrite. What makes you think you are so important? 

But on the subject of you you are always quick to make a lot of snappy comments and snide remarks on this site most of which are accompanied by smileys and other nonsense mojos if that is the right description. My views on Thomas and the redevelopment are here for all to see and comment on.  That is fine. I have long since realised that I am a minority voice supported by the likes of Random, Manworko4 and others. We can live with that. But your views are a complete mystery to me other than supporting the status quo. So, you think that KT is a good owner despite all the warning signs? Tell us.

KT has only ever been in this for one reason and that's KT's bank account.
What I don't like is all the BS and supercilious PowerPoint that went with him, still it wowed all the nodding sheep after all he did save us  Grin

I still cringe at his loyal subjects falling about holding their sides at Thomas's unfunny one liners whilst the overhead projector showed us nothing of substance.
I recently had the pleasure of asking him via a radio station to confirm if the land behing the East stand was now annexed into the hands of private owners so now no longer available for the benefit of the football club.. His reply was comedy gold, he started talking and skirting around the question  by asking questions of the question, before admitting it was now gone to private ownership but stated it was never earmarked for use by the football club despite the football club sitting on top this land.
I'm hoping he now takes his land and cashes in but allows the football club to finally move forward in the hands of people who care about it.

Thanks for the reply and a couple of snide remarks thrown in too ...WOW. It wasn't clear at all from your post who it was aimed at although I suppose one could deduce/guess/throw the dice who it might have been for. Just a simple correction to the message would have avoided any confusion. Is communication yr forte?
I have no particular affection for KT except he saved us from oblivion; if people resort to OTT abusive comments on Players/Management, that is the sort of abuse which is unpleasant and hints of libel etc then it upsets me and cannot sleep at night Roll Eyes . Personally would have hoped that KT finished the East Stand by now but suspect my views are on a pragmatic level compared with yours. That is all I am able or even prepared to offer at the moment. If we are mid-table by Christmas will be a happy fan.

 Grin Grin I was probably reeling from all the attention you give me. I am truly flattered, that every time you want a response on anything, you ask me personally. I'm only sorry I can't return the love..

No youíre not. Youíre tripping out on the club struggling.

You've never got over DC kicking your butt and throwing out your job application 😂😂

sorry mate but DC did not kick my butt and the reason he kicked out my job application was because he knew what he was doing and i would not have stayed quite unlike the Trust and current members of staff (except the whistle blower)

Also I recall you went off with your tail between your legs after DC shouted at you and your daddy.

Oh so you admit the club is struggling!  how can that be when we have such a great chairman that you have lauded for the last 3 years....... but then he does talk nicely to you doesn't he !!!!

I have no idea where you recall that from. I met DC on several occasions. Always about stuff on here. If you remember right, it was me who dealt with the whole thing between you and the club. I am completely aware of what was discussed. I will not embarrass you further by divulging any more.

I met with him once about a point I made on here about a person who worked at the club. If you want to know what was said, you are more than welcome to ask Gareth. I can assure you, in no way did it go bad for me. He got a bit irate though  Grin

Radio Northampton news bulletin reports that there will be news announced next week regarding the East Stand. No clues as to what, but it's something (hopefully positive)!!

Without sounding pedantic, was the emphasise on the loan not news of future East Stand development?

One week on from my first sight of the Cobblers  playing at home this season a flying visit from Scouseland a couple of observations from a supporter who can only now watch the Cobblers live on an irregular basis in Northampton and when they venture up to the North West:

- My scepticism from afar re Taylor, Facey, and  Hoskins was born out in the Grimsby game. Taylor played as though he was the scouse Beckenbauer but was woeful in his distribution and looked uncomfortable when he was pressed defensively, Hoskins ran up and own the pitch like a headless chicken and  his distribution got worse and worse as the game continued, Facey has now made two costly defensive mistakes of a similar nature against Cheltenham and Grimsby at home both of which were easily avoidable.


- First half performance was OK against Grimsby but once Grimsby upped the ante we bottled it.



- Curle now needs to take a leaf out of Wilders book from the season before we won Div 2 when he brought in Ricky Holmes and Brendan Moloney et al and from a similar position to what Curles team are in at the moment use the January transfer window to get in a ball playing midfield player and some effective natural wingers.


I see Curle's current position as a work in progress, overall the quality of League One this season is mediocre and so there should be some  scope for optimism for the Cobblers to reach the play offs.


My seat at the Grimsby game in the West Stand yet again reinforced my long held view that the stand is full of whingers in that an old guy in front of me never stopped moaning once Grimsby equalised in the first half, I cannot understand why posters on this site eulogise about the strength of support from the West Stand , in my view it is non existent.

Again where do you sit in West? Also Curle is the new Wilder?

TBH it was early and I'd just woken up so I may have mis-heard. Seen nothing on social media since or heard anything else so who know?!

I sit in different parts of the West Stand, never the same seat, the only consistency is the whingeing not where I sit.

Kelvin Thomas Youtube update on the redevelopment here:

On redevelopment

"Really good conversation with the Council..pleased with how that is progressing".

"Good discussion with the council about how we fix that in terms of linkage to the wider development and using all the land for the benefit of the football club"

"We can't do anything but work in the background"

On selling the club

"Ongoing, very fluid process"

"One of this big concerns for us is no-one comes in and separates the land from the football club"

"some of those discussions have been fallen a way, some of it has been a bit more property based...some of it has been just football club based and not property, there has to be a balance"

"We don't really want people to come in and just buy the football club and not worry about the East Stand"

Pretty much nothing new then!

Positive conversations with George....just as he said a few months ago. Work going on in the background....yeah no, you know.

Budget cuts or no budget cuts?? The budget needs addressing, and that will be done in this window or the next, but football first and finances second?

Doesnít want to split off the land from the club, seemingly puts paid to the idea of a fans based/community based takeover.....the success of the club shouldnít really be attached to what happens to the land around it, thatís my opinion anyway, KTís seems to be that they are one, despite the club not actually owning nor controlling the land anyway!

I donít know what to make of it all...KT seemingly has sold most of his share in the football club to David, yet keeps his half share of the vehicle controlling the land. Perhaps he should have been asked why that has happened?

I asked him via a radio show last month if the land was now anneced into the hands of private investors so no longer available for the clubs future use, he said it was never intended for the clubs enabling of redevelopment but
now it seems he has changed his stance?
Also it seems he no longer wants to spend more time in the US of A and wants to sell the club, but is instead continuing the 3 long years of talks with his old friends at the council to do his undisclosed things that is causing frustration to him but is still progressing well... FFS, what in the name of all that is sacred do you still need from the council, and should they grant it to you.. what will it look like? Artist impression perhaps  Wink
Only he knows the end game but still claims its frustrating him Grin
Suggest you sort something out then.
