We've seen managers come and go. Occasionally we get lucky and achieve some short term success. Carr, Atkins, Wilson, Calderwood, Wider and Curle have all got us promoted from the 4th tier.

But any success is never sustained. At best we might hang around in League 1 for 2-3 seasons but the wheels always come off eventually.

We simply don't have the infrastructure to sustain a League 1 club.

We are a tin pot little club just off the M1, that play in a dilapidated Mickey Mouse stadium with no training facilities. How on earth can any manager achieve anything tangible under these circumstances? Any short term success is in spite of, not because of.....

Until we address these issues we're destined to just go round and round in circles and never get anywhere.

This, followed by the predictably myopic response from Evers.

The east stand tells you all you need to know about the club. Huge potential but fucked up at every conceivable opportunity, even Wilder was sick at the sight of it. We're bloody lucky we have Brady here who actually gives a shit.

No other manger will come here and see a future, get us promoted or in the play offs next season and it buys them a ticket to somewhere else.

Sums up the situation perfectly. I do hope we give Brady a chance, because at least he cares about NTFC.

i think JB should be given the job now so that he can plan for next season early and get his recruitment staff in place quickly .
There should also be someone that sits above the structure to co ordinate the youth policy with first term policy and plan for future seasons rather than the immediate requirement of results .
The chairman needs to nail his plans to the mast as well with regards to where the club is heading and what provisions he has in place regarding the stand and the financial backing of the club to move it forwards .
JB has complete integrity and is a well respected coach .
Let him get on with it and letís hear something significant from our owners .

From what JB said after the match on Saturday it's not a question of being given the job quickly so he can make plans for next season. There's no doubt he loves the club, but he's clearly not going to take on the job without some chance of success. He made it quite clear that if offered the job he won't commit until he has a clear view of KT's plans for the club.

just caring about the club is not enough to change the approach to running the club.It is a Catch 22 Situation and always will be until some honest and wealthy benefactor comes along and runs the club in the right way. Brady has no track record on player recruitment and this is where the greatest weakness area is with the Cobblers and has been so for a long time at least back to the times of Graham Carr.

I would be amazed if JB get the role, heís had the audacity to challenge KT and make him do something he has never done, communicate his intentions about the club going forward.
I fully expect to see a journey man manager in place around mid June with the usual BS around targets identified, offers made etc etc, once the season tickets are committed too, we will be left with a mid table L2 team, some on here will be over the moon.
As some have said they donít give a sh1t what league we are in as long as they can go and watch it.

Atkins (just one off the top of my head) was good at player recruitment. It was the way he got them to play that became the issue.

If thatís the case the starting line up should include only loan players that have a possible future at the club, no one whose contract is ending and will not be offered terms, no one that is going to be transfer listed, no one not very good, start the two lads that have been on trial at Sunderland!

Starting at a distinct disadvantage as weíve only got enough for a five a side with rush keepers!

That would suggest that Adams isnít in the frame (assuming he ever was) as he wouldnít be a quick decision due to Morecambe being in the playoffs. Iím not totally adverse to the Brady bunch but I have got some reservations.

It is a strange one. In virtually any other circumstance JB wouldn't get a sniff at the role. Regardless of how much we foot the blame at KC's door, he did have a prolonged spell in charge. I think the stat was we would have been 16th/17th or something, or survived anyway. I don't know if that could change with the last couple of results. Either way, his performance hasn't made it a straight forward recruitment decision.

I still want him to get it in view of the picture you paint, which is exactly what would happen if we go elsewhere. We could have a Wilder but the likelihood is we won't, especially as I'm sure the budget strings will be tight.

At JB's level it also becomes a financial decision. It's a bit like these semi-pro footballers who make more money playing and working a regular job than they would as a pro. He already had other paid work, so depending on whether he received a bolt on or what they offered him it could sway his decision. He may also not want the lifestyle and stresses of being a FT pro manager, it can't be for everyone and he mentioned the hours and sacrifice he has been putting in.

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

yes, taking a team of journeymen and mostly unheard of but seasoned pros to 2 wembley appearances in 2 years was simply disgusting
