It's still better to get an award than not. Correct?

All this exciting PR is something to do with season ticket discount deadline tomorrow I think.  To be fair the season ticket prices are very reasonable.  No complaints on that subject from me.

But don't worry Beds, according to our leader the club is "doing well", "making progress" on the East Stand and continues to be in "good discussions" with the Council.  Why anyone driving past Sixfields on this fine day late in May and seeing with their own eyes the significant investment our owners have made in the stadium should have the cheek to question the accuracy of such statements defeats me.

I'm sure there is an element of that as it can hardly hurt, but while I know certain people see KT as a kind of Machiavellian figure, I'm not sure his manipulative skills stretch as far as getting the EFL to manufacture an award and, you know, just conveniently give it to us the day before the season ticket deadline, just to give us that last little sales boost...

Ok, I've changed it to include the whole quote if you're going to be precious about it. I was picking up on the first sentence which is why that's all I quoted in the interests of brevity. I genuinely don't see that the rest of your post provides a context that changes the meaning of the first sentence though.  Huh?

Northampton is one of the best run clubs in England. It was rebuilt under the stewardship of Thomas. It will take several years to complete, as there is no mention of it on here, the shame is the  survey not completed in 1986. The ground site was outside the  town, and has  three deep sides. A branch of the the supporters club provided a natural buffer . The ground has an extensive ground and a large pitch The gates are easily accessed . The old ground was "obliterated" by the cricket ground.

Can I politely suggest you read this back in context of your many many posts.

You time and time again state the future of the club in a community involvement along with local business interest - here we have an award very much based on the club having a community approach and yet you belittle it - you frequently accuse KT of belittling the club and yet an award (of course small and not that significant) is met by you with scorn and contempt.

You also frequently state we don’t need over ambitious plans but small steps in the right direction. 

You really are no friend of our football club are you?

Small steps in the right direction.. We can only wish.
I'm not being disrespectful to those great volunteers who entertain kids on a match day or put on other entertainment at our tiny shambolic ground, just at those who are using this as a shield to hide their inadequacy in doing the things they promised but time and again failed to deliver.

As said it is great to win an award but it certainly paints over the cracks and over played by KT as you would expect. The kids bit is well done within its boundary’s and there are good people involved however.... they are simple ideas, cheaply done with no great expensive or involvement from senior management. To be deemed a success how many of those kids / parents pay to come to the next game? Many used to leave after half time once their kids had played the half time game. That is not the kids section staff, this comes back to the lack of atmosphere, lack of entertainment on the pitch and the lack of quality comfortable facilities, things much harder and more expensive to get right.
Things must be bad at other clubs if a painted wall and PlayStation trumps every other EFL club !!

No - what’s pathetic is a supposed grown up using terms like “Dick”, “twat” etc about other posters.

If you disagree try using proper English rather than you overbearing smug arrogant attitude laced with playground insults.
Dick and twat are both 'proper' English...whatever you might mean by that! Eytmology not your strong point?

As for, arrogant and smug...think few who know me would ever describe me as such, yet ironically, you come across as amongst the most smug and arrogant on this board!
