Good news is on its way.. now thereís a phrase from the distant past  Smiley
Around the early eighties, the number of times in the programme I read: "These are exciting times at Northampton Town, as we look forward to the possibility of a brand new stadium".

Possibility - key word I guess!  Grin

This thread is certainly a legacy of the land grabbers...
Also a living reminder to our clubs supporters as to what happens if you go bed hopping with smooth talking Londoners who have a penchant for real estate. Grin Grin

I see the mighty Stevenage have nearly finished their new 1500 seater stand behind the goal.

So, any update on the Trust masterplan? Seems very quiet after the initial fanfair...

All well & good stating what should happen but what is actually happening behind the scenes? I'm a lifetime Trust member & have heard nowt!

As the response by some fans was close to treason I think they are reluctant to say anything. Afterall the scrutiny was far far far more than some strangers who come in from Florida and Dubai with lots of promises and little in action and even less in results

The response may have been in part, due to the propoganda that was distributed during the meeting. Which all board members subsequently distanced themselves from. "Nothing to do with me". Leaving the originator to carry the can, and he has not been seen on here since.
Having said that, as a life long member of the Trust, (share number 00814), then I would like to be kept informed of proceedings.
The trouble is, that if you tell the members what is occuring behind the scenes, then you can guarantee that some idiot will post it on here, or on Facebook, and claim to be "in the know". Its a catch22.

I posted this earlier today on the Newport thread:

"For Melbourne to make the comment that he thinks we have performed slightly above par demonstrates that successive owners of the club have been allowed by supporters to set ambitions so woefully low.  Beds is right on this aspect but it doesn't only apply to the Thomas era.

Burnley is a reasonable example of what can be achieved at a club that represents a town about 25% the size of Northampton in population terms.  Not so many years ago it was a few minutes from losing its EFL place. Now it commands a place in the Premier League. The reason is it has learned from its mistakes and has good owners, all locally born and Burnley supporters, and good management appointed by the current board.  Contra NTFC with its main owner who has made an appearance at about 3 matches in fast approaching 4 years and his front "football man" who turns up at the club a couple of times a month.  Managerial appointments (only 5!) during their tenure have been awful with the jury currently out on KC.  Small wonder that we find ourselves in 18th position in the basement division.

Tomorrow we host supporters owned Newport who sit 2nd in the table with debt free supporters owned Exeter at the top.  The conventional privately ltd company owned business model isnít working at NTFC but I fear it will take a financial crisis to change things. "


Like Tabasco and memyhead I am a life-member of the Trust and plenty of the regulars on this site are also members.  I think you will find that when the Trust directors have something to say it will be published quickly enough on their website without anyone blurting it out elsewhere first.

What supporters require is a statement concerning timescales;

1) Are there any discussions ongoing with the Trust and the Council?

2) Are there any discussions ongoing with NTFC and the Council?

3) If so does progress mean we will be told the details in a month, year or never?

1. Neither the Trust not the Council can force the redevelopment of the East Stand.

2. The owners want shot of the Club so are unlikely to spend money on redeveloping the East Stand.

3. There is no progress.

Is 3 a rumour, lie or guess?
