The singing of the songs you mention is what they do! Get used to it! As for the West and North Stands they do their bit; look forward to you joining in and making the atmosphere happen Roll Eyes

I have a cunning plan!

Why not have a mass mail drop to the 98.5% of the Northamptonshire area, a leaflet telling the occupiers of each address what utter c***s they are?
The leaflet could offer the remedy for not being such an utter c**t by getting themselves down to Sixfields.
Complete salvation and a completely full stadium, meaning an undeniable necessity for a larger stadium!
Doesn't even need Beds' businessmen!  Tongue

Nah, won't work. If they're utter c***s they'll already have season tickets at London Road. Wink

Marketing genius! How could you possibly be so in tune with the demographics?

Quite a few green seats on show at Franklin's Gardens Saturday, I saw on TV!
Having said that, while we were embroiled in an exciting 0-0 against er, Crawley... they scored 67!  Shocked

Over 12,000 at Notts and Carlisle did a 10kforMK campaign which did succeed in attracting over 10k at Brunton Park, fair play to both clubs. A lower table clash against Crawley doesn't pull in the punters. Even in our title winning season I'm sure we only got just over 5,000 against them just after we'd won the title. These poorly supported ex non-league clubs are no attraction.

I think it's as much to do with the clubs owners inability to deliver on promises made that has alienated the support base and town in general from the football club.
If it wasn't for the social side of things like having few beers before and after, I doubt I would even bother paying £24 to watch Thomas's football club.

The fact is that we aren't touching the sides in terms of the population of the town or the county coming to games. There is a shell of a club there, a base to grow definitely but doing things the same way we have been doing for god knows how long probably has had its time.

Common knowledge that football crowds drop when teams are struggling and going downhill,

Get in the play offs and a few will come back.

Get into league 1 and finish in the top 8 aiming for promo to the champo and they will be back in their numbers for sure.

I know several Cobblers fans who have been going to Kettering Town matches this season instead and they openly admit that it is because they are in a promotion hunt and they enjoy the positivity on and off the pitch rather than the negativity that hovers over us.

Recent away turnouts against Lincoln , Stevenage and Crewe suggest otherwise. Very good atmosphere and attendance today?
