I said it years ago and I still feel the same now, Claret is a jinx for us.

We really need to change our colours, Claret is dull and negative, the club needs an urgent input of positivity in to it because the Claret has sucked it all out.

Well.. That's certainly a fresh perspective. Just about everybody and everything has taken the blame in this social media era. So why not the colour of our shirts.

Nothing to add, just couldn't bear a whole week going by without a single post on the world's longest thread (probably).

Once upon a time a knight in shining armour came to sort a total c*ck up by the Cardoza/NBC partnership. Sir KT talked the talk but did NOT walk the walk!!!
After many sleepless nights we still wake up to an embarrassing carbuncle of an East Stand!!!

978,956 views, 25,264 comments; result- NOTHING!

One wonders if the next chapter will remain a fairytale?

This thread is now over seven years old, maybe it should be renamed redevelopment further than ever.  There doesn't seem any desire whatever to complete the East Stand.

Finishing the 'East stand' is a red herring,  Thomas gave the impression he was genuinely interested in doing something but was all bravado as he never had any intentions other than hoping to make multi millions for his paymasters and give our club a token gesture..
In L2 we just rot, crap team, crap attendances, crap ground, its how we roll, but when the club reach L1 it is a different beast, we play dozens of bigger clubs that attract larger attendances,  so much so we lose £300k at the gate by being unable to welcome upwards of 3,000 visiting fans and allow our club to build up its supporters base wanting to sample greater atmosphere at a more professional stadium, which 'finishing the east' does not allow! Yes great in entertaining local buisneses and attracting investment through sponsorship etc, it doesnt allow 8, 9 or 10,000 gates we lose out on hand over fist.
The main thing Sixfields needs is a capacity increase, which would greatly improve the stadium.
The easiest and most dramatic improvement would see a 3000 capacity cheap bank of terracing built up behind the seats in the south stand, costing approx £1.5m. Which is close to the amount of revenues lost every season we spend in L2!
The stand could be shared and still allow up to 3000 visiting fans to access games at a vociferous Sixfields that would attract the more vocal younger fans we need badly.
When Thomas next talks of finishing the East, which I doubt he ever will, just ask yourself, is he really the big football / buisness man he led us to believe he was?
I'm convinced he's not.

Allow me to slightly edit the latest dross from the serial fantasist Beds.

I never gave the impression I would 'finish the East stand' Thomas did in order to take control of the club cheaply, but never as much as presented an artist impression of what he intended doing, which I believe is nothing.
Melborne, you being a businessman who has been very quick with a defeatist no can do attitude to suggestions as to what Sixfields needs to help its inability to sustain our club and push its urgent need for growth, so what do you reckon to my latest suggestions that talk of finishing the East above a much easier extention of the South stand to allow us to capitalise in L1 on gate revenues is all a big red herring to throw Northampton town fans off track as to what our club really needs whilst allowing Thomas extra time in land aquirement he craves?
I say moth ball the East stand a little longer, extend the South stand in  preparation  for an assault on L1, east stand can be phase 2 . North stand being phase 3, and championship ready.

I’ve said the wrong thing again haven’t I? I agree, you never have said you would finish the East Stand, just waffled on incessantly about KT doing it. On a serious note Beds it doesn’t matter what you do, finish the south, the east, put in your boxes it doesn’t matter. As I keep saying all you need to do is come up with some concrete bullet proof figures to enable us to raise the cash. Every post you put on here is full of opinion and debatable at that. The facts are that any proposals need to be financially bullet proof otherwise you won’t get support, and without that groundswell you’re wasting your time. Instead of generalised comments put some figures together and go to the trust, anything but the same repetitive stuff on here? You never know, you might come up with something workable? You’ve got your critics on here, me included but no one can knock your commitment and drive, you just need to channel it in the right direction rather than arguing in support of your opinion that has no real substance attached to it? You spoke on here about Division 1 and clubs that bring large away support. Good point, how many, how often and how many times did the away allocation sell out? What does that equate to in terms of revenue? Come up with decent figures and then people will sit up and take notice. Either that or you can come back and have another pop at me with another barrow load of generalised opinion and argument? You decide?
