That was a tragic loss. R.I.P. Pete. A good lad.

I used to know Pete from a few away trips with the Jimmys End lot, 90’s I think, yes, good lad. Didn't know he’d died. What happened? R.I.P.

Your being stupid now.

Possibly, but only as stupid as some of the right wing, nationalist, empirical, royalist jingoism we get from
certain posters. Live and let live, embrace all cultures, races and nations instead of longing to rule them.

That’s the spirit Tel....

Why not just go the whole hog; The rack, thumb screws, flaying, keel hauling, burning at the stake, hung drawn and quartered, red hot pokers, removal of limbs and that’s just for the most trivial crimes.
  I think some people on here would be happy to go back to the dark ages and I’m not referring to you Tel as I’m sure you had your tongue firmly in your cheek.

I have been reliably informed that our lowest attended away match was on Tuesday 5th May 1981 at York City

Apparently, it was attended by just 2 away supporters..

I love hearing all the stories of away days and home adventures.

I wasn't one of them.

I'm surprised the Cambridge pitch invasion hasn't cropped up by now.

1975.  Wasn’t there, was at Longtown on a school outward bound course. Remember Ron Atkinson who was their manager at the time, saying we were as bad as Man Utd fans who were running riot up and down the country at the time.

1983. Boarded the train at Rugby...full of Bristol City skinheads! **** myself as a sixteen year old - though probably would have at any age to be fair!
Brian Lomax also on the train, as some skins conversed with him, basically saying they were going to smash up Northampton!
At the County Ground, they ran along the paddock and onto the pitch, making for the Hotel End.
Some of Northampton's finest Pringle and Lacoste repelled them...1-0 to the Cobblers btw!

The season before, on a Sunday took my girlfriend and we won 7-1, Dave Syrett scored 4, it had no influence on her, she still didn’t like football!! Needless to say, we’re not together any more, although she is the mother of my daughter, who’s now 37.

Incidentally, who’s you favourite dead royal. Mine’s King Arthur, although mythical, makes more sense to me than the more recent incumbents.

Remember quite a few of those gates! 1,311 for a 5-1 thrashing against Blackpool on a very foggy night.
2,350 was a crowd swelling final home game of the season against Mansfield Town. Resurgence of optimism, as Derrick Banks had just taken over!
Didn't go - up in Cumbria but ended on a high...as did the final win at Torquay a few days later...a contingent of Cobblers running amok (briefly) down their popular side!

Remember a few Blackpool lads “taking” the seats.

I see this thread has FINALLY dropped off the front page.  Grin

Wait ‘til the queen dies, it’ll go ballistic.

Cardiff was exciting, I couldn’t work out why their Kop to the left of us had emptied out 10 mins before the end, then when we got out I found out they were all waiting for us in the car park, thank god for the old bill.


Remember getting legged after the game at The Shay in '77, probably no more than 100 Cobblers fans and 3 of us just about managed to get back to the coach with about 10 Halifax lads in hot pursuit. Also, same year, running battles around the terraces at Tooting and Mitcham in the cup and after the game some nutter threw a heavy steel bin through our coach window, needless to say, he wished he hadn't. Same season on the way back from York stopped at a service station and a load of Leeds fans from the other side of the motorway came over, luckily there were more than a coachload on our coach and many of them were certainly up for it and piled off the coach and piled in. The Leeds fans ran for their lives some of them literally over the motorway, dodging cars. As our coach pulled out of the service station a load more coaches of Leeds fans were pulling into the other side, we were lucky!

I was there along with 10000 others.

I was there with a mate who no longer goes and we got chatting to 2 blokes who were from oop north, but down here working and decided to come along. So it could have been even worse.

Good Afternoon Shoemender

I totally understand your thought process, however my reason for supporting Newport is quite unique and one I have told often and has been published in the match day programme in years past. If you are at all interested please message me your e-mail address and I’ll gladly forward the story to you.
As a football fan I have seen many Cobblers games in my time, two Wembley play off finals, Aston Villa at the County Ground, Man City at Maine Road and many sub 1000 attendances at the County Ground.

Phil in Northampton

Hi Phil. I think I read on here that you support Newport because you stuck a pin in a map and that's who you got. While I fully respect your decision to support whoever you want although most on here know my views on supporting your local team or one you have family connections with or where you were born/brought up I still don't get it, maybe it's just me. At least you're not a glory hunter, they're the most annoying.
One more thing. I'm pretty sure we've only ever had one sub 1000 crowd in any meaningful game, ie; League, FA Cup or League Cup and that was against Chester 1985.

I do, ooh Gary Davies, ooh Gary Davies on your radio  Roll Eyes

Preferred Simons Bates “our tune” at 11am.


Smashy and Nicey.

Good Morning

Whilst no fans would turn down a promotion the reality is we would have struggled to compete. We are just not strong enough financially or in infrastructure to challenge. Hard work, commitment and organisation only gets you so far. How did last season feel for Cobblers fans? The joy of promotion followed by the misery of relegation?
At our level play off excitement and big cup games are pretty much all we hope for and certainly have provided ample entertainment and excitement for me in the last decade or so.
Each new season begins with hope and optimism, whether looking forward to Sunderland or Sc***horpe.

Without doubt my highlight will be the two games against the Cobblers and I look forward to our future discussions when the time arrives!

Phil in Northampton

Why not just support your local team, then every week would be a highlight.

I thought you were on a self imposed exile in the Galapagos Islands though?
Or is that Shoemaker?  Grin

Wish it was me. Smiley
17  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Pre-Season Friendlies on: May 28, 2021, 22:16:38 pm
FREE ticket to the West Ham United friendly is excellent PR......keep that standard up.

B+gger I am on holiday abroad that night ........................(North Wales!).

I think a much better gesture would have been a free ticket to, say, an FA cup game, not a meaningless friendly, that I for one, am not really interested in.
18  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Window on: May 28, 2021, 22:06:51 pm
The Swan is in Braybooke. Not Harborough. And Shoemender has just kindly refreshed my memory bank, and he is correct, it was the Talbot.

I remember about 20 or more years ago, it was part of some sort of social “experiment”, in which the police tolerated, or turned a blind eye to, the smoking of illicit substances. Unfortunately it didn’t last long.
I think it closed a few years ago.
19  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Window on: May 28, 2021, 12:14:20 pm
Harboroughs all right. Can anyone recall the name of the pub, on the corner, that had sawdust on the floor?

Was it The Talbot?
20  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: The way forward. on: May 10, 2021, 18:23:24 pm
Actually I am quite surprised with the "status quo" option being the most popular.
I expected option 2 followed by option 4 to be the most popular.

Me too, although I’ve already given my opinion on this. Surely there are more than 56 members of this board or aren’t many people really bothered about the future of NTFC?
