Despite the fact that numerous managers and even our current Chairman have said we wouldn't go down this route again.....

goalscorerwise....(league goals only)

2020/21   Watson 7, Hoskins 5
2019/20   Hoskins 8, Williams 8
2018/19   Williams 12, Van Veen 7
2017/18   Long 9, Ash Taylor 6, O'Toole 6
2016/17   Richards 10, O'Toole 10
2015/16   Richards 15, O'Toole 12
2014/15   Richards 18, Toney 8
2013/14   Carter 5, Norris 4
2012/13   Akinfenwa 16, Nicholls 7, Langmead 7
2011/12   Akinfenwa 18, Jacobs 6, Berahino 6
2010/11   McKenzie 10, Holt 7
2009/10   Akinfenwa 17, Gilligan 8, McKay 8
2008/09   Akinfenwa 13, Jackman 8
2007/08   Hubertz 13, Kirk 8
2006/07   McGleish 12, Kirk 7
2005/06   McGleish 17, Kirk 8
2004/05   McGleish 13, Smith 10
2003/04   Smith 11, Richards 9
2002/03   Gabbiadini 12, Stamp 4, Asamoah 4
2001/02   Forrester 17, Hope 6
2000/01   Forrester 17, Savage 8, Howard 8
1999/00   Corazzin 14, Howard 10
1998/99   Corazzin 16, Howey 6
1997/98   Seal 12, Freestone 11
1996/97   Grayson 12, Cooper 10

Thats as far as Soccerbase goes!

Prior to that Bobby Barnes scored 20 in all competitions in 1989/90, and the season before that Tony Adcock scored 20 in all competitions too..... the last Cobblers player to score 20 league goals in a season would therefore be Richard Hill in 1986/87

The last Cobblers player to score 20 goals in a season in all competitions was Scott McGleish in 2005/06 (24 total, 17 of them in the league), and he is the only "20 goal a season striker" we have had in the last THIRTY YEARS


That is absolutely staggering.  No cobblers player has scored 20 league goals for over 30 years, although a fair few ex Cobblers
have. Possibly more unbelievable is our 2 highest scorers in a promotion season had 8 apiece. Must be some sort of record.

The problem has been and always will be, No ambition, we yo yo between the bottom two divisions because every time we go up, we try and survive with journeymen and loanees.


We signed a striker from a premier league academy who was apparently banging in the goals at that level. Unfortunately it didnít pay off on this occasion but on principle I wouldnít be against making that kind of signing.
In Danny Rose we paid a fee for a striker who was many on here were hailing a natural goal scorer. Again it didnít work. I kind of fail to see what else we can do unless our recruitment is spot on, as player who really is a proven goal scorer at league 1 level is going to be snapped up by bigger teams and unless we get a billionaire owner willing to throw away multi millions of pounds each year that type of proven player is way out of our range.
The truth is we need to the type of signing someone like Mullin at Cambridge whoís record never remotely suggested he was capable of what he has this season, or say a Charles at Accrington who they signed from Southport, which is all down to great recruitment.

But then we got Danny Rose on £2400* and paid a transfer fee.

*Based on the same salary page which Iím not convinced on itís accuracy.
no player is on that money at this club .
The information is wrong .
Loan players are different -they get paid in main by the parent club .
Look at the cars in the car park .

The last player to score 20 league goals in a season for us came from a non-league club for no fee (or maybe a bag of balls)?

Andy Boothroyd is available again. The football wasn't brilliant but we had a good home record and he did get us to Wembley, we might even get Clive Platt back.

The truth is you need to get lucky. It's the same with all player recruitment, just think JJOT and Ricky Holmes.

A fine result, albeit too little too late (maybe)...
Who'd of thought Wigan and AFCWimbledon would both win 4 on the trot?
But... Whatever, JB has had a few remarkable results, and I believe he remains our best choice going forward...
Just hope he wants it!!

Well if we do change manager at the end of the season and we want a man whose team play attacking, expansive football I'vefound just the man. His teams last 4 games have featured 22 goals with 3 wins and scorelines of 3-0, 3-4, 5-2 and 4-1. He has a wealth of experience of division 2 with a promotion on his cv and will be out of contract at the end of the season. He is currently managing Oldham.

But some on here derided the man at every opportunity. It was almost an agenda ridden campaign. What about one or two on here refusing to go to home games because of the style of football. In the end it was his last few results against the then current bottom 4 which did for him! If Oldham give him a contract and they have a successful 21/22 season some of us will look a bit silly and have a gross misunderstanding on football management trends. Some weeks ago Melly suggested that a change of Manager was unwise! Remains to be seen if he was right or not,

How well KC does next year will prove nothing, he showed with us that heís capable of signing great players like Morton & Goode then in another window nothing but dross.

Don't worry, when Oldham's pre existing team are eventually dismantled and re-coached by KC, these results will turn into 0-1 losses with 27% possession and 1 shot per game on target. PS I don't mind looking a bit silly, perhaps this post will be lost by then.  Grin Grin Grin

From the horse's mouth (Ryan Watson). The new manager 'has installed the belief in us and confidence to play'. I would also add that the players can now probably understand what on earth the manager is talking about.

I think you have to give the players a bit more credit, virtually everyone knows bullsh*t when they hear it.

Ok so I have become somewhat annoyed recently by the suggestion that there is little to separate the performance of Keith Curle and Jon Brady so far.

So I looked at their records in the league this season:


Our record under Curle:

Played: 26
Won: 6 - 23.1%
Drawn: 6 - 23.1%
Lost: 14 - 54.8%
Points won: 24 - 30.7% of available 78 points

Goals conceded: 40 - 1.53 conceded per game
Goals scored: 20 - 0.77 scored per game


Our record under Brady:

Played: 17
Won: 5 - 29.4%
Drawn: 4 - 23.5%
Lost: 7 - 41.1%
Points won: 19 - 37.2% of available 51 points

Goals conceded: 20 - 1.17 conceded per game
Goals scored: 18 - 1.06 scored per game


Look at the difference in goals scored and goals conceded under Brady! We are scoring more, and our defence is actually pretty good even when compared to the rest of the division.

But most importantly, we are picking up 6.5% more available points over Brady's term than Curle's.
If you were to calculate what Brady's points total would be by this stage of the season - i.e. after 43 games played - then you would discover that we would be above Wigan (19*43/17=48.05) on 48 points.
If you take the same logic with Curle's record (24*43/26=39.69) we would be sitting on 39 points, although I don't think it would have even been that many given how they were playing towards the end of his tenure.

And this is with a poor squad with very little strength in depth made harder by the number of injuries of late. Brady has had to make do with the tools available to him. Even more so, he picked up this team when it was at rock bottom after that dismal defeat at home to Wigan, and his massively improved the playing style in my opinion.

Even if you don't agree that it has become a more enjoyable watch in this team - which I can scarcely believe that someone could - then you have to acknowledge the statistical turnaround in this time. Playing-wise, I think Brady has created a very solid defensive spine of the team with Horsfall and Jones improving no end under him. He has also recognised that Bolger shouldn't be anywhere near the starting XI. Another thing that I haven't seen too often on here, the midfield for the first time actually seems have clearly defined individual roles: McWilliams the ball winner, Morris as the playmaker, and Watson as the more advanced goal-scoring midfielder supporting attacks. If Mickel Miller (who I think is a fantastic player) was injury free all season I'm certain our points and goals tallies would higher as he offers pace and more importantly dribbling ability in wider positions; the lack of which has really cost us this season. I think the manager would certainly look to address this in the summer.

So yes, I think it would be deeply unfair not to give Brady a chance to build on what he has started next season!

Well done OCoole for some very interesting stats.

You don't need to worry too much. The club is clearly preparing for his appointment judging by the twitter feeds coming out of the club.

Latest one "Lovely words from Jon Brady on why it's so important for the community that we keep on fighting" following the one the other day "a rallying call from Jon Brady."

The club are so funny the way they prepare the supporters for an announcement  Cheesy Do they think we were born yesterday  Roll Eyes
