How refreshing it will be to hear the wishes of the clubs supporters as to how they want to see our club move forward over being told the original little 1994 Sixfields is ok for league one, with the council blamed for the continuing  3.5 year delays stopping them spending the closely gaurded  ring fenced £4M.

Well done to all who organising this really important land mark meeting.
Get it well advertised with live streaming on Facebook to reach as many supporters as possible to fully gauge oppinion.


this meeting started in 2016, happens 3 times a year, i'd have thought you were a regular attendee

That was the old closed shop secretive trust society meetings that thankfully are a thing of the past.
Its an open shop now, inviting 10s of thousands of Northamptonians to join them in leading the football club kicking and screaming into the 21st century.

'better training facilities' - thats a bit rich! Reports I have heard that the training facilities are first class! A Milton Keynes fan recently told me that the facilities at their end were fine, decent refreshments available. Toilets easily available and stewards were friendly and helpful. Who should I believe ?
Have you sampled the delights of Stanley, Oldham,Pompey and Luton yet as for example at Luton and Portsmouth you  cannot get to the refreshments without difficulty let alone the toilets. Add Cambridge and FGR to the list.
So you would prefer Sixfields to Fratton Park? No, didn't think so!  Wink

As far as I know they had a couple in 2016 and, maybe another after that, the attendances after the first two were down to less than 20, none were held in 2018 to my knowledge. It's such an obvious move to try and under mind the Trust, I think its NTFC clutching at straws  Sad

So, there's a lot to take in there, but does that mean that the council has lost its claim against the Cardozas?

The end 'summary' appears to be weighted against NBC but not conclusive! Should be interesting verdict.

Sixfields is a dump, if you turn left at that T-junction roundabout.... you know the one I mean.

thanks for the info, also demonstrates the apathy of the support base and the significant challenge any group may have in galvanising it for a different ownership model or anything else.

All apathy has been born out of 20 years of Cardoza and Thomas's inability to show the slightest improvements to our stadium and the progress of our football club.
It could very easily be reversed.

"All supporters welcome to attend". 
An opportunity for all, I am sure that enough notice has been provided for those who would like to attend to do so and express their view and opinion directly especially as it will be post the transfer window?

Could be an interesting evening as we will know what the clubs intent has been with regard to the playing side by then. Hopefully be able to find out a bit more about the off field ideas the club has.

Compared with quite a few L2 and even some L1 grounds we are an acceptable "dump". Have you been to Fratton Park or Luton for that matter? They are real dumps and at Fratton Park the toilets are so old fashioned you literally stand in rivers of urine. That's if you can reach them in the first case. As for amenities at both they are terrible. Frankly you are speaking out of your backside.

An "acceptable dump"?? Wow, thats a bold statement to make! Its all in the eyes of the beholder I guess. You accpet it...others don't

Some see Fratton Park as a dump, some see it as an old ground with lots of character and a cracking atmosphere.

Sixfields was pretty modern and plush....in 1994! But now its 2019, 25 years have passed and pretty much nothing has been done with the ground. Thats a hard fact for some to swallow I know! In fact, i'd go as far as to say its a worse ground now than it was then......the ground won awards for disabled facilities back in the day. Since the demolition of the viewing gallery and removal of the lift etc our disabled fans have been left out in the cold in more ways than one.

Still, each to their own eh? Everyone is entitled to their own opinon aren't they Evers?

You know as well as everyone else on here that the apathy was around long before anyone had heard the name Cardoza. I can't remember anyone campaigning to have some sort of decent sanitation(the Roman's didn't give it to us) behind the Hotel End and we turned out week after week to watch dross on the pitch with Youth Opportunity players and journeymen just making a wage. Mind you there was a decent atmosphere.

Evers, if you are seriously trying to say that Sixfields is superior to Fratton Park, then your last sentence indeed applies to you!
You think the whole stadium (19,500 capacity, large atmospheric home and away ends, old skool Archibald Leitch Main stands and floodlights...) issue is based on your opinion of a toilet cubicle???

You might like Fratton Park but I think the amenities are pp and the cramped seating arrangements are shoddy.  Huh? Have you been to Fratton Park?

He does have a point, Fratton Park is a bit cramped, fans have to make do with what they have and Pompey fans make a fantastic atmosphere down there, but if Pompey had a lot of money to spare and it was worth putting the money into upgrading the stadium i'm sure there are a few of their fans who would like it.

If i was a Portsmouth fan i'd be wanting to get back into the Championship and then after 3 years of stability look at improving infrastructure, but until then i'd accept it as it is like fans have done for many a year while trying to get back to the level that such a well supported club deserves to be.

I love Fratton park. I loved the old Moyes end at the scum.

I like the character and atmosphere that comes with the old grounds.
