 Smiley - get your point but I would suggest in general, new grounds have the opposite effect on gates particularly so if you have a decent team, catchment area and owner willing to continually splash the cash.

What wasn’t mentioned on the vid was Darlo also had one of the Chuckle Brothers enlisted as a steward (anyone remember that game?); even a ‘celeb’ failed to get the punters in. Me to you!

I had forgot about that. Poor bloke was up and down the stairs loads of times. And we all sat down just as he got to the top. And stood up again when he went back down.

He was brilliant - he properly played along with all the singing at him.

When I got to work on the Monday, one of the lads asked what was going on, he had been listening to Radio Numpty, and Tim sent someone over to investigate. Back came the reply they think that one of the stewards looks like Barry Chuckle.
During a rendition of the Automatic "whats that coming over the hill, its Barry Chuckle, its Barry Chuckle.... I looked at one of the other stewards, who was wiping tears out of his eyes, as he was laughing so much. Happy days.

In isolation these court cases are frankly a joke and do nothing to hold the real culprits to account - patsies absolutely being the correct word for these individuals who at best will receive a modest fine.

Completely agree, this has to be a massive embarrassment if it’s the best that the boys in blue can muster.
Over a million spent on the investigation more tax payers money spunked on chasing these cûnts.

Todays court action is just a minor first rung on a 10 rung ladder.

The CPS needs to make a decision NOW and take action on the real culprits!!!!!

Hopefully those that did not enter a plea or chose not guilty will be heavily scrutinised in Crown Court and squeal on the rest.

Exactly right. Typical that the "little" men are the ones that get done and the main men/ horrible båstards are likely to get off scot free. What's new?

Was concerned that this thread nearly fell off the front page. It will never die!

So did Christine Cardoza complete sale of all the properties with claims/charges from NBC against them? It wasn’t just Church Brampton.

Following the presentation the other month I believe it was due for further discussion at WNCC cabinet but don’t recall when this was scheduled for. Anyone remember?

From twitter...

Four members of the Trust's board met with representatives of West Northants Council @WestNorthants this evening to express our concerns about the potential Sixfields stand and land deal.  We would like to thank the councillors for their time.  Details to follow soon. #ntfc

The Supporters Trust met with West Northamptonshire Council last night to express their concerns about the Sixfields land and stand deal.
The Trust remains far from convinced that the proposed deal is in the best long-term interests of the football club.
From the little information we have, it appears that the deal best serves the short-term interests of its overseas owners, David Bower and Kelvin Thomas.
The Trust fears that the proposed deal will see any football club profits wiped out by the loan repaid to the owners, leaving the club with minimal investment benefit, no cash in the bank and no land asset.
The Trust told the meeting that any deal represented a very rare opportunity to finally move the football club, and the town of Northampton, forward.
And we have asked the council to consider a partnership approach towards bringing forward an infrastructure foundation through which Cobblers fans, the club's owners and the local authority could invest monies and expertise to uplift the fortunes of the football club off the field as much as on it.
The prevailing lack of transparency around the current deal chimes alarmingly with the situation seven years ago, when millions of pounds of public money vanished on what was then Northampton Borough Council's watch.
The Trust would support and welcome any owner of the football club who clearly and openly demonstrates that he or she has the club's best long-term interests at heart.
With regard to the incompleted East Stand, does £3 million really equate to value for money when it adds just 200 more seats, 18 executive boxes and some lounges?
Why do the present development plans include building a logistics shed on the club's historic land footprint behind the East Stand which is protected as an Asset of Community Value?
Do we not now not have a great chance to finally realise the potential of Sixfields stadium and build something much more impressive to benefit both the football club and the local community?
Do we really have to have an industrial unit virtually up against the back of the East Stand?
Why can't that land be appointed for say practice pitches, a training ground, an athletics or other community sport facility?
Or a hotel, a conference centre, a fanzone - something with community benefit and income potential?
Why another featureless unit to go alongside the others earmarked for the rest of the development site?
Northampton's sports teams are great assets for the town - they should be nurtured and valued and encouraged to help make the town the best it can be.
The town's local plan is as much about maximising a health and wellbeing strategy as it is about economic development.
So many other football clubs are benefiting from progressive partnership working.
Coventry, Leicester, Peterborough, Milton Keynes and Luton are all within a 50-mile radius of Northampton - and they are leaving Northampton behind.
For the largest town in the country this cannot be seen as acceptable.
