1  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: What do you think of Sixfields Stadium? on: Today at 08:11:45
Itís really not that difficult to enhance Sixseats, put the top tiers onto the North and South stands, this would give us enough capacity 10k until IF we ever got into the Championship.
The North can then have bars and entertainment at the back as could the South for visiting fans.
I am lead to believe that the foundations are already in place for the extension, this would give home fans another 1000 home premium seats along with the West upper this would be enough for the casual fan to rock up to the stadium and get a decent view.
Personally Iíd rather they spent the £3m doing that than bodge up that dreadful East stand.

So we can be outbid by Chesterfield? I see he has scored 7 already and Smith is on 6 too.
Shoestring budget is what I heard.

wow the speed of that game, no wonder the U23 sides donít do any good in the pizza cup.

The Hoskins debate rolls on and i am not as anti Hoskins as some but Ö.
He was poor on Saturday and apart from the corner that led to the goal and the block at the end , did nothing of consequence . Donít mistake having plenty of the ball for having a good game - you have to do something with it .
He was put through by Koiki and should have scored and had numerous chances to cross and failed to do so.
The wider issue is that none of our so called wide players , including Pinnock and Connelly are doing too much . It may be because they are playing very narrow and having to defend a lot but at the moment all three of them are luxury players that contribute little .
I think we are better with full backs pushing on and extra strength in midfield .

Spot on B&S totally agree, Pinnock defensively is awful and so is Connolly so I guess thatís why our little scamp Super Sam plays endlessly.

He currently sits top of our assists stats with 3 and 2 better than his nearest challenger. This does suggest his final ball is ok and better than the rest.
Probably why we are one of the leagues lowest scorers.

Still without a club.
Got to be worth a short term contract or pay as you play?
7  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Swindon (h) on: September 19, 2021, 17:09:10 pm
Sometimes yes, but not yesterday in my opinion. In fact, he put in a number of very good crosses and corners, as well as making his usual good runs and one amazing block in our penalty area. I wouldn't say his decision making was poor yesterday either. I think it's usually poorest when he sees a shooting chance and misses better options because he wants to go for goal himself, but I don't remember that happening yesterday. Overall he does a lot more good things than bad and is a well-above average L2 player.
As I said earlier in this thread he was a lot better second half, he is just so frustrating as he has a bit of pace at this level and his first touch has improved massively.

Rumour circulating yesterday that the Villa lad, Dominic Raven, has been sent back because his fitness isn't up to the required standard. Also, we're trying to sign a free agent striker.

I wouldn't be surprised at the first rumour, but the second one I'm not so convinced about. We shall see.
Told ya 😉

You just can't resist having a go at him can you? He was excellent yesterday, full stop.
No he wasnít, his final ball and decision making are sub standard even for this division.

One day we will meet and have a beer Manny. And it'll be a great day  Grin

Really do hope that continues mate. Our group have got daft train times so should be fairly well oiled  Cool Looking forward to it.
Cheers Dan👍

i think thatís the best we have played for quite some time . We were very unlucky not to have won and it is really encouraging for the future.
The referee robbed us of a goal by getting sucked in and then couldnít get a decision right after that .
Koiki was superb although it was his error for their goal because the man got inside of him .
Magowan also very good along with Rose who kept going all game .
We have to do something about Hoskins - he didnít beat his man once today and should have scored when put through .
All in all a really enjoyable game .
Iíve got to be honest and say that Pinnock didnít have a great game, heís good going forward but defensively heís a liability.

Get in the first team, pay for some running costs.
13  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: £alford City Away 25.09.21 on: September 18, 2021, 22:19:42 pm
Manchester city centre will be heaving with United at home to Villa, the Courteneers at the cricket ground, and the hoards from Northampton.

I hate everything about Salford City and would love to see us smash them.

Regarding Hoskins;

I believe you are a West Stander so you probably witnessed him more in the 1st half than the second.

In the 2nd half (I'm in the East) I thought he was very good indeed creating a fair amount of the play and opportunities from the right.
I am indeed, Hoskins played far better second half and assisted with our goal, first half he was so frustrating with his final ball.
15  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Swindon (h) on: September 18, 2021, 19:01:51 pm
Entertaining game, good atmosphere and some decent performances, on the down side the substitutions were terrible, Lewis for Etete WTF?
Thought Hoskins doesnít look right, he looks to still be suffering from COVID saw him walking around catching his breath a few times, mind you is a side effect of COVID the inability to pass to a team mate?
16  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Swindon (h) on: September 18, 2021, 08:42:10 am
Lets face it, if the east stand was a facility intended to be used by thousands of lesbians, disabled people, children with learning difficulties or illegal immigrants rather than football fans it would've been completed years ago.
With tax payers money and not a loan.
17  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Swindon (h) on: September 17, 2021, 21:23:15 pm
That's quite a turn around from your initial opinion of those two.
Have they exceeded your expectations, or are they just the best of a bad bunch in your opinion?
TBH mate McGowan has one really good performance and then a not so good one but I think heís good enough, as for Flores the jury is out but Iíve seen a few bits of quality from him to give him a bit more time.

18  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: NTFC Trust Presentation to WNC on: September 17, 2021, 12:32:00 pm
I think Iím qualified to answer for Manny - he feels BAS is an up and coming star and requires patience from the more critical of fans as he develops his game.
Thank you Cobblerwatch for your synopsis, I think he will be definitely one for the future, not quite sure what yet but Iím pretty confident it isnít his current line of vocation.
19  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Injury Updates.... on: September 16, 2021, 18:27:37 pm
Martin Singleton. I think he had a nasty knee injury shortly after signing for us also.

Canít lose the anonymity on here. Iíve thought about meeting up with a load of contributors the next time Iím over. The trouble is as soon as that happens all of the social niceties, tactfulness and diplomacy kick in and the whole dynamic of the site would be lost forever. No more brutal honesty, just a load of pleasantries and treading on egg shells. Not for me thank you.

Jon Brady
Jon please can you play Etete and Kabamba up front Satdy.
