If Alex Jones wanted to sign for us he would have accepted the invite to join pre season training...

He'll also take weeks to get match fit, so I'd rather we try and work with what we've got til January, unless there is a ready made match fit striker out there...which there ain't.

We should have got in that Tishimanga lad when we had the chance, been on fire since joining Chesterfield.

Koiki...but McGowan also superb...

We must have the best back 5 in L2...hopefully the offensive unit will click soon...

Need to get both Koiki, Horsfall & Roberts on longer deals else they'll be off for pretty much nothing, at the end of the season.

Two I can think of, from around the same time;

Darren Wood
Kevin Wilkin

Joe Nuttall, but to be fair, he was already injured when we signed him!

The Supporters Trust met with West Northamptonshire Council last night to express their concerns about the Sixfields land and stand deal.
The Trust remains far from convinced that the proposed deal is in the best long-term interests of the football club.
From the little information we have, it appears that the deal best serves the short-term interests of its overseas owners, David Bower and Kelvin Thomas.
The Trust fears that the proposed deal will see any football club profits wiped out by the loan repaid to the owners, leaving the club with minimal investment benefit, no cash in the bank and no land asset.
The Trust told the meeting that any deal represented a very rare opportunity to finally move the football club, and the town of Northampton, forward.
And we have asked the council to consider a partnership approach towards bringing forward an infrastructure foundation through which Cobblers fans, the club's owners and the local authority could invest monies and expertise to uplift the fortunes of the football club off the field as much as on it.
The prevailing lack of transparency around the current deal chimes alarmingly with the situation seven years ago, when millions of pounds of public money vanished on what was then Northampton Borough Council's watch.
The Trust would support and welcome any owner of the football club who clearly and openly demonstrates that he or she has the club's best long-term interests at heart.
With regard to the incompleted East Stand, does £3 million really equate to value for money when it adds just 200 more seats, 18 executive boxes and some lounges?
Why do the present development plans include building a logistics shed on the club's historic land footprint behind the East Stand which is protected as an Asset of Community Value?
Do we not now not have a great chance to finally realise the potential of Sixfields stadium and build something much more impressive to benefit both the football club and the local community?
Do we really have to have an industrial unit virtually up against the back of the East Stand?
Why can't that land be appointed for say practice pitches, a training ground, an athletics or other community sport facility?
Or a hotel, a conference centre, a fanzone - something with community benefit and income potential?
Why another featureless unit to go alongside the others earmarked for the rest of the development site?
Northampton's sports teams are great assets for the town - they should be nurtured and valued and encouraged to help make the town the best it can be.
The town's local plan is as much about maximising a health and wellbeing strategy as it is about economic development.
So many other football clubs are benefiting from progressive partnership working.
Coventry, Leicester, Peterborough, Milton Keynes and Luton are all within a 50-mile radius of Northampton - and they are leaving Northampton behind.
For the largest town in the country this cannot be seen as acceptable.

Rose, who also thoroughly deserved his goal today. His best performance in an ntfc shirt for me too

New left back signing not even on the bench...

Cheltenham Town are set to loan striker George Lloyd to a League Two club

Might be us, might not

Well we just have and allegedly got £300,000. Surely that's enough for a half decent 4th division striker/midfielder/defender or more.

Plus the Matt Crooks sell on fee - 20% rumoured...

Ricky Holmes fails to agree terms at Southend and joins Farnborough instead. He made his debut for the Southern league side this afternoon.

Sad state of affairs...

He finally signs for his boyhood club in Southend...

They want to keep him for their promotion push back into the EFL....

Farnborough offer him more money so he signs for them instead!

Surely, he's not that desperate for money...after all, he was paid big bucks sitting on the bench for Sheff U

Etete...very much reminded me of a stronger DCL, when we had him on loan...

Must start every game when fit, BAS absolutely incomparable to this class of striker!
14  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Window on: August 06, 2021, 16:06:36 pm
Surprised that...

1) He got another league club
2) He didn't drop the scarf!  Grin

Really happy with the new management structure & hope people don't start getting on their backs after a few dodgy results...

There is finally a real plan and identity to the way JB wants us to play, so I'm happy to ride the bumps along the way...

Not expecting a promotion push, just want to see a decent brand of attacking football, with more game time for our own youngsters.

If we make the play offs or better then great, but after the atrocious football under KC, I just actually want to watch some good attacking football.

Really looking forward to attending tomorrow, unlike the dread I felt whilst watching us last season under KC.

i think the latest addition will conclude our inbound transfer activity for this window.
it looks like we have the best balanced squad in a long time and getting everyone together so early pays dividends .
Real credit should go to the recruitment committee .
The budget has clearly been restrictive and it would be interesting to know what people would see as success this season .
i think anything above 10th is over performing, considering resources available .
The problem is , people are expecting top 6 and our spending power is nowhere near that .

After the awful turgid dull football served up under KC last season, I just want to see us play some good attacking football tbh. If we also have a play off / promotion push then great, if not then so be it.

Just hope the supporters stick with JB should we go through a sticky patch, as this appointment should be seen as a long term project.

ntfclad...any transfers (in or out) expected to happen before Saturday?

Come again….

I wouldn't bother mate...I purposely never respond directly to his posts as life's too short to interact with someone like him.

He seemingly spends his entire life on this forum, trying to get a rise out of pretty much every poster, in order to get his pathetic thread count up!  Roll Eyes

As someone else mentioned, I agree some kind of block button would be ideal, so you never have to scroll through his tiresome posts every time you check in.

A pretty tragic individual...

Danny Hylton?
20  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Window on: July 29, 2021, 09:57:49 am
common sense prevails at last …

Whatever happens, let's hope it's done before the season starts...absolutely bored of it all now & he obviously wants to leave, so let's all just move on & get it sorted.
