Yes, as I said, nothing since that initial update after sacking KC!

People slag off the boro chaiman, but at least he keeps the lifeblood of the club updated constantly...
182  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: THOMAS YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED on: February 27, 2021, 18:19:08 pm
He's been silent since sacking KC...

Absolutely no updates about the managerial situation whatsoever...not even had the decency to have a conversation with Brady!

Would not be surprised if he put us into administration now that relegation is almost a certainty...

Eagerly await the season ticket loyalty reward email which will be dropping into my inbox shortly!
183  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: New Manager on: February 26, 2021, 11:47:42 am
Surely we are due some sort of update regarding the managerial situation from KT ain't we?

If it ain't gonna be Brady then just get on with appointing someone else, if it is then just announce Brady...he'll have the majority of the fans backing

What happens if we lose or just get a point or two from the next few games?...becomes even harder for someone new to come in as we are more than likely going to be even more adrift by then...club will then be in the embarrassing situation of announcing Brady when we still haven't won a game...

GIVE US AN UPDATE KT FFS!
184  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Swindle Town away Saturday 27.02.20 on: February 25, 2021, 23:13:56 pm
Another positive, clear & concise pre match interview with Brady on ifollow...so refreshingly honest!

Really hope we get the win on Saturday for both us supporters & for Brady too

Predicting a 4-5 humdinger in our favour!
185  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: New Manager on: February 24, 2021, 12:29:27 pm
I do wonder how thoroughly KT, Bower & Whiting have been going through the applications/made any approaches to under contract managers...

Can ntfclad give us any indication as to what's going on behind the scenes?
186  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: New Manager on: February 23, 2021, 23:16:24 pm
KT said in his post Curle sacking interview that he, Bower & Whiting would go through all the manager applications last week...

Brady said he's heard nowt from KT regarding his position & expects to prepare for the Swindon game...

KT really needs to update supporters (and Brady) as to what's happening one way or another, sooner rather than later especially as the season ticket renewal emails will soon be dropping into our inboxes

Personally, can't see anyone else getting a better tune out of the squad Curle assembled, so I'd offer it to Brady til end of season with an automatic extension if he somehow keeps this squad up.
187  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Back in the grounds...... on: February 23, 2021, 12:00:41 pm
Suprised we haven’t had the season ticket renewal messages on the back of this.

They're coming...

https://www.ntfc.co.uk/news/2021/february/season_ticket_230221/

Northampton Town Football Club welcomes the update from the Prime Minister on the return of crowds to matches, effectively from the start of next season.

While we are clearly very disappointed we will not be able to welcome season ticket holders back to matches this season, this does at least provide clarity and give us the opportunity to begin to work towards the return of supporters at the start of the 2021/22 campaign.

We are hugely grateful to our current season ticket holders for their support and patience through this season.

Now we have a little more certainty in terms of dates, the club will be in a position to make an announcement in terms of the options for season ticket holders and seasonal car park pass holders in the next few weeks, after discussing our plans with supporters groups.

We would also like to place on record our sincere thanks to the many, many season ticket holders who have already contacted the club to say they will not be seeking any form of refund or credit. Your support is hugely appreciated by everyone at the club.

After sacking KC, honestly can't see KT shelling out any compo on a manager, who's currently employed elsewhere.

If this was the case and he had a specific target in mind, surely he would have made sure he was going to get said target, before firing KC.

Not sure what contract Grey is on but Duff is contracted til Summer 2023...

As for Wilkin / David Oldfield, then no idea how thier contacts work as their seasons have been declared null & void.

We certainly need some sort of update from KT regarding the whole managerial situation sooner rather than later

Marshall

Just shows what a player can do if played in their correct position!
190  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: New Manager on: February 20, 2021, 23:28:01 pm
Well we had the rumours about the Sutton boss Matt Gray, but I hadn't seen this article before today....

https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/football/14070856/northampton-danny-searle-aldershot-exclusive/

Good find!

Rather offer it to Brady, IF he really wants it & let him restructure the the who footballing side of the club (as he's previously mentioned about a fluid footballing identity throughout all age groups)

I don't agree with those saying it feels like the Dean Austin era, Brady comes across much more knowledgeable & professional than Austin ever did.

I too am sick of the managerial merry go round, only to possibly get someone in half decent who'll leave at the first opportunity.

We might have to go down to rebuild properly but if it means playing some good football, scoring goals & finally providing some entertainment, then so be it as he's only got the squad KC assembled to play with so any ooc additions won't be match fit for weeks.

We were defo going down under KC anyway & it was absolutely dreadful to watch on ifollow nevermind in the flesh.
191  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: New Manager on: February 20, 2021, 21:57:11 pm
Hearing we may be delving into non league

Any updates ntfclad?
192  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: New Manager on: February 20, 2021, 18:07:48 pm
Realistically, is anyone else going to get anymore out of this squad, that Brady has inherited from KC?

With the limited time he's had on the training ground, I think Brady is doing a good job, in turning this bunch around.

Today we played some the most exciting football we've seen in ages...

Also, when Brady says front foot football, he actually means it!

Another huge week coming up, so if KT is not going with Brady & appointing elsewhere, rather he does it sooner rather than later.
193  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: New Year 2021 Transfer Window on: February 18, 2021, 14:32:16 pm
Don't think either Brady or a new manager will be bringing anyone else in tbh...

Also, it will take them weeks to get match fit (then probably get injured in their first match anyway!) so what's the point?

I'd certainly rather the management try to get a tune out of our current strikers, than someone like Cody McDonald!

Perhaps it's time for the likes of Chuks & BAS to stand up (literally in the case of BAS!  Grin) and come to the fore

Shame Pollock is still not fit as he'd really suit the new style Brady is trying to implement.

We'll obviously be a lot stronger if/when Sheehan & Miller return too
194  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: New Manager on: February 17, 2021, 12:57:12 pm
Of course, Brady might not want the job permanently anyway, in which case this speculation is irrelevant.

Local journalist response is that's he's non committal either way...

You never know we might soon get an update from KT regarding candidates & if Brady actually wants it...

Perhaps ntfclad can clarify if Brady wants it or if he's got no chance anyway
195  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: New Manager on: February 17, 2021, 12:43:48 pm
Big worry for me is that Brady feels a bit like the Dean Austin situation.

I know what you mean but Brady has at least managed previously (not at league level admittedly) & is a lot more measured & composed than Deano imo...

Everything Brady said last night resonated with supporters. He tries not to complicate things & gives clear concise answers to the questions asked...

If it's Brady or someone else, they've only got the squad KC assembled to work with, so they are already limited with what they can do...

If a new manager comes in & we still can't score what then?

196  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Tractor Boys away Tuesday 16/02/21 on: February 16, 2021, 23:30:26 pm
Such an honest & refreshing interview...few digs too...can we honestly get anyone better to work with this current squad?

Give him til end of the season then reassess...

197  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Tractor Boys away Tuesday 16/02/21 on: February 16, 2021, 22:42:15 pm
Chalk & cheese from last Tuesday's horror show v Wigan

Brady certainly getting a tune out of this squad & considering the lack of time to properly work on tactics etc, we're playing some decent football. Just hitting the damn net continues to be our main problem!

Correct decision to give the captaincy to Mills & drop Bolger, who's certainly never had the required attributes needed to be a captain.

Does Brady even want the job permanently though?
198  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Injury Updates.... on: February 16, 2021, 12:29:48 pm
Anyone else a little puzzled about Miller? KC confirmed a week before he left that Miller was back training..

Brady confirmed yesterday, he isn't and is still a little way off coming back.

I'd rather believe Brady over the waffling Curle!
199  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: New Manager on: February 15, 2021, 13:44:31 pm
what is the difference between Matt Gray and Jon Brady ?
Neither have league management experience but successful at non league level .
Jon knows the club and players and is also a very well respected coach .
He lives locally and deserves a chance with his own team around him .
The only issue is the players are not good enough and he has been left with a poor hand to play .
Give him a chance


Totally agree, whoever else comes in, they can't bring any quality players in now (won't be anywhere near match fit even if they could) so they would need to work with the existing squad, which is nowhere near L1 standard.

Brady should change the captaincy though, but then again, in a squad with no leaders (bar Sheehan who's never fit) who else would you make captain?

We're in a right mess that's for sure
200  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Tractor Boys away Tuesday 16/02/21 on: February 15, 2021, 12:40:21 pm
I guess when your shopping at the food bank your just grateful for anything.
I don’t believe KC would have signed any of these “players” if he would have known their injury records, I think Miller was bad luck, Sheehan is McCormack all over again, Nuttall is yet another massive embarrassment to the club.
WTF does Whiting do, he needs to be more hands on in some of theses deals as he is KTs right hand man.


Simon Tracey made the player recommendations to KC, based on how KC plays & the characteristics KC looks for in players...that worked out well!

We've got Tracey & Dan Watson for at least another year unless they get sacked too, once the new gaffa comes in, as he'll probably want his own backroom team.
