Foley was fit for the  Wigan game as he was on the bench but didn't come on. He the disappeared again for two games, mystifying really as I don't see how he could have been injured.

And the same with George smith, he was on the bench for Bradford and then not in the squad last night - granted Hanley had a good game yesterday but are we saying that kasim is rated a better bet than foley and Hanley a better bet than smith? Also no injury update on McWilliams so I hope this means he's fit and available for Saturday.

Oops, I missed him out.

Think the last update was "a couple of weeks", bang on two weeks ago.

So would think a week at most if he isn't fit for Saturday?

While I concede that 2 months is infinitely better than 7 months I canít see how this can be seen as anything other than terrible news when we are desperate for results (and goals) right now. If jjot is not going to return any time soon as suggested by insider then we are seriously scratching around for quality not just up front but also now in midfield - all we need now is an injury to ash Taylor and we are in a crisis!

Foley is fit and available for selection as far as I'm aware?

Was on the bench at the weekend unless injured in the warm up/training.

Is it official that crooks is out for 6 weeks or is it based on what the guy who spoke to him over the weekend posted - I'm sure I haven't read anything from the club about it?


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: Irchy cob on October 03, 2017, 21:37:46 pm
Yet another injury by the sounds of it, moloney's had to come off - we've got no cover at right back with Phillips out.

It's OK. We can play Powell RWB, I'm glad Edinburgh got him used to the position.

Post by: Irchy cob on October 03, 2017, 22:19:48 pm
It's OK. We can play Powell RWB, I'm glad Edinburgh got him used to the position.

I'm sure he'll get shoehorned in there somehow - I literally can't think of any other solution - but now that we're not playing wing backs and Powell can't defend or tackle I can potentially see a few problems - let's hope moloney shakes off whatever injury he picked up.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: guest143 on October 03, 2017, 22:21:22 pm
Does George Smith have a decent right foot? According to Jimmy's interview after the game, Barnett is injured as well.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: Irchy cob on October 03, 2017, 22:42:09 pm
The amount of injuries weíre picking up is starting to get ridiculous - I get that heís having to work them hard in training but I wonder how many of these are down to fatigue.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: Irchy cob on October 03, 2017, 22:56:16 pm
Would have thought that Poole could do a job at right back.

Heís missing on international duty.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: guest2677 on October 04, 2017, 01:16:26 am
I've said this before, Hoskins is the man, except he's another of the injured.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: Boot and shoe on October 04, 2017, 08:52:50 am
I wonder if he will play McWilliams brother at right back who is supposed to be the next best prospect coming through


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: The Rauldinho on October 04, 2017, 10:28:49 am
Moloney and Barnett added to the list now.

Poole can play RB but is away on International Duty, do we dare start a youngster in Cameron McWilliams? I hope so.

What is the worst that could happen?

'Fort that Poole only misses one league game which is this Sat?

Poole is only missing the Bristol game but the concern would be if moloney is missing for a length of time - Poole has been outstanding in midfield and to shift him to rb would mean disrupting both areas. If moloney is out the options look like either playing a left footer on the wrong side, Powell at rb or Cameron McWilliams - Iíd probably go for the latter if that is his natural position. What side does bodin play on for Bristol - if heís left sided heís going to give whoever is at rb a real test?


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: The Rauldinho on October 04, 2017, 11:37:07 am
'Fort that Poole only misses one league game which is this Sat?

Correct, so if Moloney is not fit then we need an RB for Saturday. Poole would have been my first choice as Foley could cover the midfield.

As he is not there, I would rather an inexperienced RB play there than a wide midfielder with about 2/3 games experience at that position (Powell).


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: Poggy on October 04, 2017, 11:41:40 am
Moloney is fine to play on Saturday by all accounts.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: Irchy cob on October 04, 2017, 11:58:43 am

Anyone but Powell at RB - he canít stop fouling when trying to defend .
Hopefully Moloney will be fine
We desperately need some of these players back , especially Long , Hoskins and JJOT

Title: Re: Injury Updates....

Moloney, Hoskins & McWilliams all should be fit for Saturday.

Barnett out for 4 weeks - Achilles
Phillips - no return date
Long won't be rushed back - maybe 10 days (hamstring)
O'Toole is joining in with training on non-contact basis - no return date
Crooks out for at least 6 weeks, if he doesn't need surgery - knee

I think that's everyone.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: Boot and shoe on October 04, 2017, 13:04:04 pm

Title: Re: Injury Updates....

Could do with Barnett and Phillips returning. Moloney looked so tired last game I saw him... Not surprised he came off with muscle fatigue yesterday.

I agree with this, with Barnett, Poole and Phillips all out it meant that we had no choice yesterday but to field Taylor, Pierre and moloney - all of them could have done with a rest but we have no alternatives.

According to JFH the team have done very little training because it's been Saturday-Tuesday-Saturday matches ever since he arrived. He has said this openly and its one of his frustrations because he would like more time on the training field. The fatigue is due to accumulation of games and probably also that JFH's system requires players to be fitter as they have to run around more.

Mainly positive injury news from today:
- Shaun McWilliams and Sam Hoskins are now "fully fit" and available for selection
- Chris Long is "back running" and is "touch and go" for Saturday's game
- John Joe O'Toole is back in full training but won't be ready for Saturday


However Moloney is not training and not available for selection

Aaron Phillips in still injured, but that is more long term.

Maybe fully fit aren't the words I would use. Certainly Hoskins, Foley, McGugan and McWilliams (to a lesser extent) can't be classed as fully fit, but yes, certainly available for selection.

"We think he might be okay for Saturday" the words of JFH on the Chron report.

He didn't train Monday, as is going for a scan. They are unsure what the injury is although they don't think it's a tear.

Fingers crossed.

Post by: Teachers Pet on October 11, 2017, 16:58:02 pm
Chris Long does have a slight problem with his hamstring (since the Charlton game). However, it hasn't been enough to keep him out of games but does not allow him to be totally free in his movements. Therefore, JFH took the decision to get him right before he returns this time (hopefully), this involved some treatment to his back to try and free up his hamstring.     


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: Wolvo on October 27, 2017, 10:41:22 am
Moloney and Mcgugan available for selection.

Crooks is also back in training.

Phillips back doing some light running.

Barnett has protective boot off next week.

Lobjoit and Coddington back from loan.

Iaciofano no news yet.

Goff extended loan to 8th Jan 2018.

I think that rounds it all up!   


Title: Re: Injury Updates....

Post by: The Rauldinho on November 08, 2017, 11:15:38 am
Thought I'd update this as a lot of people are back/injuries have changed (as per tweet from NTFC today):

Long Term:

Phillips (Close to fitness)
Barnett (Back In Training)

Short Term:
JJ (Hopefully fit for Saturday)
Hoskins (Late Decision - Touch and Go)
Revs (Groin Strain picked up in training)


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: Teachers Pet on November 28, 2017, 21:19:56 pm
JFH has confirmed tonight that Sam Hoskins is back in training. JJOT and Daniel Powell may join in training later in the week. Aaron Pierre back training Wednesday, Aaron Phillips also back with the main group.

That leaves only Alex Revell who had a groin operation 2 weeks ago and is still a further 10 days away from a return.

Van Veen back in training and 'touch and go' to be fit for Rovers on Saturday. With the squad well rested from the abandoned Blackpool match, hopefully we don't have a need to throw a half fit Van Veen up top.

Not sure about that - would have thought that the treatment of Moloney has been ok?  As for JJOT perhaps he has been overplayed but always got the impression that JFH has managed him ok with frequent substitutions. Just a different point of view; no pack drill!


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: Irchy cob on March 06, 2018, 17:11:27 pm
As I feared it looks like the van veen situation is going to be like the Powell saga from earlier this season - rated as touch and go for every match but not being fit. Until van veen is back we wonít be seeing anything of Poole as Mathis will have to be in the match day squad to cover Long.

I was referring to when they misdiagnosed Moloney, and deemed the rest of the summer period to be sufficient. Only to injure himself in his first preseason game vs Sileby and needing an operation, thus missing preseason and the start of our 2016/17 campaign. Shambolic.

From the Chron:

There are no fresh injury concerns for the Cobblers from the weekend defeat at Fleetwood, and there is good news on injured pair Aaron Pierre and Aaron Phillips, who have both been out long term with thigh injuries.

Pierre was back out with the first team squad at Moulton College this morning, going through the warm-ups, while Phillips is also back out running again.

I quite liked Turnbull after his first few appearances.

One thing I did notice Saturday though was how many times he headed the ball into a dangerous position halfway between our box and the centre circle. I couldn't work out if our invisible midfield was at fault for this or if it was just him having a 50p head.

Agreed. I really liked his attitude on the pitch. Could tell he was taking every loss personally and really told a teammate when he felt they should be performing better.

I also feel Taylor played better alongside Pierre. Not sure if it's just my memory playing tricks though...

Not sure what the obsession with Ash Taylor is.......

Are you happy with the current results?

If so, let's just support something which we've not seen for a while - played 3, lost none..........

He will be back in the side when the time is right.  But, when the current back 3 have done so well, he needs to open some doors.  Simple as......

Ash Taylor has torn hamstring. Out for another 4-6 weeks

Leon is absent following the medical procedure not having the desired outcome. He could be back in a couple of weeks or it could be very long term.

Why hasn't the club announced this information? Someone even suggested Taylor was at EuroDisney last week - although clearly on a windup. By the way Taylor was at yesterday's game. He was with Morias, maybe both are doing rehab together. I hope Leon's problem isn't too serious.

Other than Cox, I don't believe any of them are actually unfit.

Which makes it all the more remarkable that McWilliams & Morias can't even get a place in the 18...


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: JohnFrainInThe93rd on March 13, 2019, 15:23:30 pm
Morais is injured again - they mentioned it on RN last night.

Agreed with McWilliams, I cant see how he cannot be in the 18 when fit.  Why bother having all 3 of Bridge, Powell, Elsnick, surely Shaun's versatility and the fact he is actually signed on to us would put him on the bench. 

Facey is the other notable fit player who didnt make the 18 last night.

No confirmation from the club that Morias is injured. They did tweet to say he was ill at the Crewe game but there has been nothing since. It's a mysterious Curle mystery.

Junior had to attend A&E before the Crewe game due to appendicitis following advice from the Crewe doctor, he had an operation the next day. He will be out for about 4 weeks and is now at home recuperating. It's a shame for Junior he's had a stop start season.

What I'm saying that all the club need to say is that he's injured. We had that crap the other week that Jordan Turnbull was "Unavailable", what was that supposed to mean? was he waiting for the gasman to service his boiler ? got a delivery from Amazon?
   We don't need to know what the injury is but when nothing is said all sorts of rumours start, if a player is playing well then, suddenly, he's not even in the 18 but there is no mention of injury, then the rumours start, so and so has had a bust up, whatshisname was late for training and the like.

I know you guys have your eyes on domination of the club as laid out in your document-that-wasn't-really-your-document-when-no-one-liked-it but you aren't there yet. You don't own the players and they aren't public property. I've no idea why Turnbull was "unavailable" the other week but it's none of our business. It could have been anything - a bereavement, a sick child, an embarrassing medical issue, problems at home, a disciplinary issue... there's any number of things that might mean he needed some time off for that he might not want to be public knowledge.

You might not like it, but players are entitled to their privacy, even if that goes against the DNA of "the Northampton type".  >:D

Because the club should only say that a player is injured if the player is injured. If a player is unavailable for another reason that could be personal then saying they are injured is misleading the fans. I want a club that is open and upfront with the supporters  ;)

I agree with you 100%, so why was I told the other week when Turnbull was "unavailable" that the reason he was unavailable was because he was injured. With the Morias case, it was posted on here on Weds that he was injured, which is a week and a half after the injury occurred. I heard various rumours last Saturday about Morias and McWilliams, non of the rumours would have surfaced if there had been a simple "He's injured" . So does anyone know why McWilliams has not been in the squad for the last 2 games ?  :-\

No it has to be up to the club, otherwise if xxxxx is not getting picked because he was late for training and is being a general d*ckhead, he's not going to put that out in public, is he?
  My original point was that it just needs 3 words from the club to stop any conspiracy theories or other rumours, "he is unfit", I really can't see a problem with this.

Right going around in circles.

Morias   Club stated he was unwell. No update until last week nor should there have been. It is not upto the club. personal medical matters should only be divulged when the player is ok with it.  Companies should not reveal personal issues of employees to all and sundry and neither should a football club

Mcwilliams   He was stated as being injured. Prior to Exeter it was said he was now fit but not included in the 18.

I agree to an extent in extreme circumstances but are you seriously suggesting the club should not divulge a hamstring strain that keeps a player out for four weeks as that could be private to the player?  A player breaks a leg and is out for the season and nobody says anything other than unavailable.  It's just not the real world is it?

What next we release a player at the end of his contract but because the player deems it a private matter we only find out when he plays against us?

The Barnett one was tricky and obviously deeply personal.  Appendicitis?

Barton is exactly right in that in a vacuum of information rumours run rife.  At least 4/5 time this season alone the club has had to come out an address situations because they said nothing originally.  If Ash Taylor has a hamstring strain and is out for 2 months just tell us....job done.

It's what pretty much every other football club in England does!

Fair play though in Barton's defence I didn't spot that distinction either and reading back through I'm not sure it's a clear as you have made it until above.

Even in the circumstance of illness though the club can say something and a rough timeline.  I've worked in many different environments where without disclosing the nature of the illness we needed to explain someone is absent and give a timeline even if undefined of absence.  Again in fairness to Barton I don't get the impression the nature of the illness is relevant more the lack of communication and the vacuum that leaves.

Pedji explanation is simple enough; he was not referring to injuries but only to illness. As in Barton's case it is when the Club fails to give clarification on a Players absence do 'misunderstandings' occur; so if player Taylor is injured then it is the Clubs responsibility to say so ....and quickly. If a player is ill then the Club needs to handle the situation differently and crucially in consultation with the Player.

Shaun's injury would be a major blow.

Its a major blow for him, but i'm not sure he's ever been one of Keiths "favourites".....only started 13 of the 23 games this season.

Concerning is that he replaced sick note McCormack and then went off injured himself, so potentially we could be two midfielders short on Sunday at least. Chance for Pollock to impress, although again, Pollock doesn't seem to be in favour....probably plays too much "football"!

Transfer window opens in a couple of days........!

Perhaps they've given up as KC likes to keep his cards close to his chest when it comes to injuries. Doesn't like to give away return dates or say that someone is definitely missing from the next game as he likes to keep the opposition guessing.

Its frustrating when it comes to the likes of McCormack especially, who is obviously nowhere near match fit and probably never will be again, but KC plants that little seed prior to each game to say that he is in contention or is close to a return.

How many times is Curle going to say about "modifying" McCormacks return to the team/squad?

He's started 9 of our 32 league games this season, with no appearance since the Boxing Day massacre at Crawley.

As good as people think he is its worth pointing out that he hasn't scored a goal since August 2017!

IMO he is not the messiah, he's an expensive luxury who hasn't provided us with value for money this season.

I like the way Curle also says about having lots of options to change the personnel without changing the dynamics.....ain't that the truth, doesn't matter which 11 are selected, we always play the same way!!  ;)

Yes, annoying to the core. Also rather telling the way he seems to be trying to convince himself if not everyone else, that after a good result or turnout of fans it is down to them (us) buying into his philosophy. Is that really why we took over 1000 to Salford, 1,500 to Burton and 4,500 to Derby?

That would be a crying shame. We should be looking after our own home grown talen, playing them as much as possible to shine for us to lead us to better things and if they then get sold on at least it would be for decent money. Don't let them slip through our fingers. The likes of McWilliams, Pollock, Jay Williams (remember him) should be the cornerstone of our team for years.

 I hope he does get offered one. He has had a few injuries which are unfortunate. Sometimes I think that that he has the curse of being able to play in different positions which is good but then lacks definition on where is best for him and us. When he burst into the team at the level above he did well and shone. I just donít think heís pushed on as it looked like he would. Changes of management plus the injuries havenít helped but he has the ability no doubt.

I donít think Shaun will get a new contract, I also donít think heís good enough for L1 and is an average L2 midfielder, I actually think heís better at fullback.
As for Pollock, I think this lad has got a very bright future and can see him playing Championship football in the next couple of years, I would play him in front of Watson in the pecking order.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: west stand oap on March 04, 2020, 14:05:06 pm
I would not worry over Williams being fit as I would be surprised to see him in the starting 11 in any of our remaining 10 games (that is not to say that I do not like him). My thinking is that on current form  Morton will be starting and if Oliver misses out Smith will replace him as I do not see us abandoning totally the long ball. Smith is more likely to win the aerial duel than Williams although I think Williams is better on the ground.
At the end of the season as Oliver has been a regular first choice he is also more likely to be offered a new contract than Williams who KC has not  given an extended run when he has had all strikers fit. Smith is under contract for 2 more seasons and I cannot see KC wanting to keep all 3. Therefor I believe Williams will be restricted to sustitute appearances unless we have further injuries.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: Coolcat on March 10, 2020, 12:56:47 pm
So Callum Morton suffering from Hamstring strain, following Saturday's Six Nations clash with Mansfield.
KC says he's quick at recovering. Just hope he's fit by this coming Saturday and in the lineup at FGR...or is asking for those two things a little too optimistic, medically and given KC's frustrating habit of dropping our best performers?

Real shame about Sheehan. A bit like McCormack last year but even more injury prone it seems. Hindsight is a wonderful thing though. I'm sure KC wouldn't have taken him on if he'd known he'd miss most of the season. On the other hand, players of Sheehan's pedigree only come to clubs like the Cobblers when they're getting on and/or injury prone. If he'd stayed fit we'd all be saying it was a masterstroke by KC to sign him. It's the risk you take and this time it doesn't seem to be working. Mind you, if he gets to play 10 games between now and the end of the season he could still be the difference between us going down or staying up.


Title: Re: Injury Updates....
Post by: Winslow Lee on February 09, 2021, 09:36:18 am
While I understand peopleís frustrations but even with hindsight I think Iíd have kept him on as the club has done on a player coach role. I feel the impact he can have in the dressing room as well as his know how to organise the defence in a coaching role could be vital in bringing up the performances of the other defences. Then on the seemingly rare occasions he does play he raises the level of the team. With the spaces still in the squad I think KC still had the opportunity to bring in another CB if he felt the right player was there who he thought would have improved the team, there seems little point though in signing a player on a similar level to what we have already.

I agree since Sheehan came in we have reduced the number of goals we concede both with him on and off the pitch, this also has a lot to do with better defenders such as Jones and Kioso.
The problem for us now is at the other end, itís scoring goals, we are the leagueís lowest scoring team and Iím really not sure Edmundson is the answer.
Maybe a player coach in that area would help, like in rugby with forwards and backs coaches.

I agree since Sheehan came in we have reduced the number of goals we concede both with him on and off the pitch, this also has a lot to do with better defenders such as Jones and Kioso.
The problem for us now is at the other end, itís scoring goals, we are the leagueís lowest scoring team and Iím really not sure Edmundson is the answer.
Maybe a player coach in that area would help, like in rugby with forwards and backs coaches.
I think Hoskins has already received coaching from the Saints try conversion coach.  :( :( :(

Sheehan is turning into a false hope, frankly another **** poor signing, doesn't matter how good he could be, he's never fit long enough to make a long term impact. Should have let him go in January,  waste of a squad place.
As mercenary as it sounds, these are my thoughts entirely!
Remember back in the early Eighties, going into my local Dixons store (remember them!). Couldn't believe my eyes seeing a computer game console for a fiver! On immediately wanting to purchase and asking why so cheap, guy in shop says "Well, it doesn't actually work"!

And probably also kicking for touch, given the proximity to the corner flag that some of his goal attempts finish.

On 28th January I posted that KC said Miller was about 3 weeks away from being fit (takes us to 18th February) and Sowerby and Sheehan 1 week ( 4th February)
Obviously Sowerby is fit again but now Brady says Sheehan is still about 10 days away (25th February). So in the 18 days between the 2 updates Sheehan has gone backwards by 21 days.
Brady also says that Miller will be ready a few days before Sheehan so it appears doubtful that we will see him for the 2 away games this week.

After a youth career at Arsenal, Tottenham and then Norwich before Wolves signed him, and then we actually paid money for him!!

Someone who thinks he's better than he actually is? Hopefully its not beneath him to be playing for little old Northampton Town.

Three goals for the club, all in the Papa Johns Trophy (2 v Southampton U21 and the other v Exeter City), no goals in the other 23 appearances he's made for us!

Interesting observations ref Marshall. Pretty much every man and his dog from our end of things, would have brought him on with at least 30 minutes to go.

What I don't get though, is that if he's fit enough for 15 minutes with a dodgy hamstring, surely he's fit enough for 30 minutes? If the hamstrings gonna go, it will go in the first few minutes of coming on? I profess to knowing nothing about sports injuries, I would though love to understand the rationing behind this?!
