101  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Brady announced as manager on 2 year deal on: May 08, 2021, 19:36:36 pm
Congratulations JB!...I'm fully behind you & glad you made sure a structure was put in place before comitting to the gig full time.

Much rather have someone at the halm, who has a real affinity for the club, than ypu typical failed journeyman...

Yes, he made some questionable tactical decisions, but he was left completely with someone else's p1ss poor squad.

I'm hoping he's ruthless with the retained list & will be interesting to see who he selects as his assistant, along with the head of recruitment.

I do get the Austin comparisons, but Brady has actually managed a team before, and seems much more measured in his interviews.

Judge him when he has his own players in & he's fully implemented his playing style

Hoping you prove all the doubters wrong JB

I just hope if we do offer contracts to any of the existing squad (just Macca, L Jones & Watson for me), they all come with a deadline, so we still have time to find a suitable replacements...thus avoiding the Oliver farce!
103  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Window on: May 06, 2021, 10:31:31 am
Lee Nicholls released by MK...proper keeper...GET HIM IN!
104  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Jon Brady on: May 06, 2021, 09:58:27 am
you might all be overlooking the head of recruitment .
The band are back together again ...

Calderwood or Atkins?
105  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Jon Brady on: May 05, 2021, 15:19:23 pm
I donít know for certain, however, my £1 would be going on Brady

With a DOF above him perhaps (Calderwood?)
106  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Jon Brady on: May 05, 2021, 13:20:15 pm
Getting rid of Tracey is a start...

https://www.ntfc.co.uk/news/2021/may/simon_tracey/

Perhaps Brady or new man has a preferred option for chief scout already lined up...

Tracey might rock up at Oldham if KC get's the full time gig there...might even take BAS of our hands Grin

107  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Mitchell on: May 02, 2021, 23:45:41 pm
On the contrary, with him being out of contract, Iíd not rule that out  Roll Eyes

Brady knows he's crap, Just listen to his post match interview yesterday...

He's had no other suitable senior replacement as Arnold is ALWAYS injured!

Neither keeper will be here next season thankfully...

Will be amazed & extremely disappointed if he's between the sticks v Sunderland, as it's a perfect opportunity to play our promising youth players, rather than any players who won't be with us next season.
108  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Mitchell on: May 01, 2021, 21:49:45 pm
Not having a proper number 1 was an absolutely ridiculous decision...

Instead we had two bang avarage L2 keepers at best battling it out...

Never known a keeper as injury prone as Arnold & some of the goals Mitchell has conceded have been utterly laughable for an alledged professional keeper...

Thankfully, we shouldn't see either again as I would hope the youth keeper (along with several other youth players) are selected v Sunderland...will be a great experience for them & I don't see the point playing any loan players either as they won't be here next season.
109  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Jon Brady on: May 01, 2021, 21:38:54 pm
Brady knows exactly what's needed & I'm glad he's not committing to anything until he's discussed the future identify of the club with KT...however if KT does not agree with Brady then i honestly expect someone like Mark Cooper to be appointed!
110  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Simon Tracey & Dan Watson on: May 01, 2021, 21:27:41 pm
Signing an already injured Joe Nuttall is unforgivable & he easily becomes the worst most costly loan signing we've ever made. I guarantee he's on more money than Oliver is at Gillingham...hence why Blackpool wouldn't cancel his loan!

Also, all our alledged first choice targets were signed in January!

Absolute s***ter of a season!
111  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Simon Tracey & Dan Watson on: May 01, 2021, 19:48:22 pm
I donít get it? If a new manager wants to bring in his own people we can let the current staff go and pay them off, Iím not sure how having something in place where when the manager goes they go to helps? they would still have to be paid off. Am I missing something?.

No, many clubs put clauses in, to prevent pay offs if manager failings...I know Peterborough do & they ain't doing too bad!
112  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Simon Tracey & Dan Watson on: May 01, 2021, 19:10:28 pm
So rather than aligning their contracts to the then managers one (ie if he leaves/gets sacked so do they), we're stuck with head of recruitment Simon Tracey & goalkeeping coach Dan Watson for another season!

https://www.ntfc.co.uk/news/20202/july/back_room_staff/

Surely, whoever becomes the permanent manager, will want to bring his own backroom team in...

The club really don't do themselves any favours  Roll Eyes
113  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Heís one of own ... on: April 28, 2021, 08:17:40 am
Why do we hardly ever have options in the clubs favour, L Jones a prime example...

He was without a club, we give him a short term deal, surely if he does well we should have made sure we get first dibs...Peterborough do it successfully all the bloomin time!

Still, least we've got BAS & Smith for another season  Roll Eyes
114  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Jon Brady on: April 27, 2021, 23:12:54 pm
i think JB knows that in order to have a chance , you need a fighting budget .
The better players need to be kept and if thatís going to happen , bargain basement salaries canít be paid .
The recruitment structure has to change and training facilities need addressing .
If you donít get these conditions - clear off and do something worthwhile when you are a well established coach and run a business of your own .
Be in control - donít let them control you .

This confirms your hunch...whether KT agrees is another matter!

115  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Season ticket holders on: April 26, 2021, 13:02:40 pm
As the club probably won't be promoting this, plus there will be a social media blackout, from this Friday til the following Monday...

Deadline for season ticket credit / refunds is this Friday 30th April

KT said in his last interview that hardly anyone has requested either of these options btw...
116  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Relegation Watch 20/21 on: April 24, 2021, 18:19:21 pm
Today just prolongs the agony...

Wigan home to the woeful Swindon last game of the season so we ain't staying up...

Let's get planning for next season now...
117  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: KELVIN THOMAS on: April 22, 2021, 19:29:39 pm
Listen back here...

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p06hf00j

He completely dodged the "elite" supporter question regarding the season ticket donation option  Roll Eyes

He also said vast majority of supporters have not requested the credit / refund option...Think that might change slightly by the April 30th deadline!
118  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: KELVIN THOMAS on: April 22, 2021, 14:26:33 pm
KT finally available for comment...

He's on The Cobblers Show on BBC Radio Northampton at 6pm tonight and is taking questions, so get asking people!

Tweet all your questions to @BBCNorthampton before 6pm
119  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Home against the Tractor Boys 20.04.21 on: April 20, 2021, 23:39:31 pm
Great team performance & at least we're showing plenty of fight (unlike Bristol Rovers)  Wink

Just a shame KC was given the whole January window before being sacked...

The one player Brady has bought in, Alex Jones, looks class...

120  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Home against the Tractor Boys 20.04.21 on: April 20, 2021, 17:16:21 pm
Morgan Roberts signed a 3 year contract which expires this Summer, so I'd like to see him in place of Mills who's been woeful, but as he hasn't even been on the bench under Brady so it ain't gonna happen...same goes for Ethan Johnstone.

Give them a proper game ffs rather than just release them in the Summer.

Rather see these kids blooded rather than loan players who couldn't give a toss about us...

If Chucks & Jones don't start tonight, I give up!
