1  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Trannies 8 clean sheets v Cobblers 7 clean sheets 23rd Oct. on: Yesterday at 09:23:35
Look, I don't want to wade in here for too long as it's pointless, people are obviously very entrenched in their views and are not going to be open to changing them, Manwork is very obviously Manwork and ain't going to change, but using the word Tranny or Poof is not acceptable. Fortunately, most people in my age group have grown up knowing that, so it's a practice that will die out, so you can cling to it if you want, but don't think everybody here thinks that marking yourself as a dinosaur makes you brave.

I though McWilliams has his best game with us in a long time, definitely suited to the base of a midfield, suits his major strengths, tackling, workrate and aggression, and asay from his weaknesses which is picking out the killer pass.

The transfers this year would have come from the top of Foyles head. You can't set up recruitment from scratch in a month, you set up networks and follow your targets for months to get a feel of them. There's no way there was a plan last year with the limits of beginning from zero, it would have been a case of, "Did you see anyone in Scotland who's out of contract and worth a ****, we've got two months to assemble a team". Not people that have been highlighted by statisical analysis as the best bets.

Sort of tough though here, because with Delta the vaccine is only like 40% effective at stopping you getting infected, it's just very good at stopping that develop into serious complications or death. If they were all vaccinated, it wouldn't stop postponements from players catching it.

If I think about the number of players who fell into the Herbalife pyramid scheme half a decade ago, I'm not 100% surprised that misinformation is making its way through those circles. Fortunately we are in a society as a whole where the vast majority of people are willing to listen to experts rather than twitter scam artists.

our budget is £1.4 million .
Look it up for yourself .
Well, this is what I mean? Where can I look that up? Last account I can see show the staffing costs are £3,966,369, though that obviously includes management and ground staff.

Serious? They outfooballed is regularly today. Had two fine wide players a ball playing centre kid who also was able to win the ball back. So everything that we havenít been able to create.
I don't think they really created anything other than the second. First was just another set piece, and plenty of long aimless hoofs. Just physical, good in the air, and very limited.

Also, were we really looking at Matt Gray as a replacement after Curle? Another hoofball non-league dinosaur.

i think the supporters expectations are way above those of the club .
Our budget is poor and we would do well to finish top 10 .
Even moderate teams pay more than we do .
We rely on picking up cheap deals that we turn around - and then the players leave for more money once given a lifeline .
Make no mistake , the best players in this team will also leave .
The owners do not invest in this club and it shows .
I'd genuinely by interested to know what evidence there is of this? Not neccesarily calling you a liar either, just want to know what your evidence is for making these claims.

It's the easiest thing in the world to suggest that a manger won't last at a club because almost none of them make it past two years... but I can't see any progression, and to be honest some of the results have masked poor performance. Only thing we offered was a good centre-back partnership, and set pieces, and nothing has moved on from them. What's the plan if we did sneak a way up to the next league playing this this, another years of being thumped? It doesn't take us anywhere, and as much as I like the bloke's passion personally, much like Austin and Sammo before him, I think I'm in the Brady out camp as well.

It's all speculation though, isn't it? Nobody knows what the wages are, what even the wage bill is, or certainly what other clubs wage bills are. The Goode money was great, but was almost immediately undone by the lack of crowds the following years. The money for a kids is a welcome benefit, but I wouldn't be surprised if I was budgeted for the loan singing of Etete (also, not saying that would be the smart thing to do with the money either, but Premiership kids are on astronomical amounts, so if we've covering even a percantage of his wage it'd be a lot).

None of them are facts because we're all left in the dark on football finances which isn't great... however, that's also pretty standard for every time in the league.

The first 10 minutes were flat, but Swindon were allowed to just past around the back sort of aimlessly. Second time i've seen them live this season, you can immediately see why our defensive side is so good. All work in tandem like one big unit, don't press until the opposition hit the halfway line. Concedes possession, but linited chances. Some fantastic tackles from Guthrie and Koiki as well if they do break through.

Can't see where the chances come from though. So far, obly options are either Koiki getting forward on the overlap, a knock on off the head of Rose, or set piece or opposition mistake.

How good is it to have a keeper who is winning you points in a game rather than losing them.
12  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Colchester United away 14.08.21 on: August 13, 2021, 14:06:40 pm
Etete played a full 90 minutes on Wednesday, after having not played any minutes for us before. While I'd be disappointed as he looks so promising, I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't start.
13  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Colchester United away 14.08.21 on: August 12, 2021, 14:38:20 pm
I'm prepared to be disappointed that Etete doesn't start, after doing 90 minutes at the cup and not having any pre-season with us.
14  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Coventry away 11.08.21 Carabao Cup on: August 12, 2021, 10:37:56 am
Our second goal was hilariously bad from their perspective, literally bundled in. Kions first was class though.
15  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Coventry away 11.08.21 Carabao Cup on: August 11, 2021, 21:03:45 pm
Was just going to ask if you could play him and Kabamba together, but sounds like we might just be about to see it? Unless we're taking Etete off for match fitness and to start in the league game.
16  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Coventry away 11.08.21 Carabao Cup on: August 11, 2021, 20:27:58 pm
I said it before, but 5 at the back is cursed.

Really hard to tell how the overall performance is like based on the radio. Good to see Pollock is back, fit, and ready to fulfill his potential. Feel like you can't miss obvious chances against Championship teams and expect to get a result though.
17  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Coventry away 11.08.21 Carabao Cup on: August 11, 2021, 19:34:22 pm
Come on then. Underdog, but two 2nd string teams and after Cardiff last year anything can happen, especially considering how crap that team turning out to be later.

Is Itollow video stream available for tonight?

Venables age, aka 78.

Though he definitely didn't have an amazing all around game, I thought BAS did more on the pitch than Rose did personally.
