Pre-Match Thoughts - Bluemike



Firing Blanks............


Our trip to Charlton may have seen a slight improvement on recent efforts but once again we drew a blank in the scoring department, a result which saw us clock up a Fourth successive Blank making it Six in the last Eight outings, quite a damning statistic and it highlights One of the main areas that the Demolition man has to address in the Summer, only Two sides in the division have scored less than ourselves and that stat alone shows every single One of us that we are just not equipped to even contemplate gatecrashing the play offs.

I think Paul Cook's assessment of the game was once again spot on, we started well and some of our play at times was much improved with a greater tempo going forward and more balls into dangerous areas, we seemed to get more bodies forward at times too which is something we have struggled to do all season long, as Cook rightly said though. it was a very small step in the right direction and ultimately changes nothing but it did at least show that on the day the players that took to the grass wanted to be there and put in the required effort, that said I think the gaffer will have already made up his mind on who stays and who is definitely departing.

One player who really does remain an enigma is Andre Dozzell, on his day, which to be fair is often few and far between, he can be superb and on other days a liability who goes AWOL, I have to say I thought he had a really good game at the Valley and looked the player we all hoped he would be, his forward runs were something seldom seen and the way he committed defenders caused them problems, this is the Andre we all want to see. He is definitely the One player that I just cannot make my mind about with a view to next season, I just can't help but think that should he depart he will blossom and become a real asset to someone else, I tend to think that were he to be on his way Paul Cook would not even comprehend giving him the captains armband as he did on Saturday and for that reason I get the feeling he will be One of the few to escape the cull that is coming.

One notable absentee from the line up was none other than our captain Luke Chambers, it is said he took the decision to drop him well and while that may be the case I doubt very much he took too kindly to the comments made by Cook last week, it has been stated there could be a role of some kind for him at Portman Road going forward but just what does that mean, I am starting to think that Chambo will be moving on to pastures new come June.

The point at the Valley saw Town close up to within Four points of the top Six and while most of us have pretty much given up on it it has top be said that Two or Three wins on the bounce would see us right in the mix, sadly you don't win games with a big fat Zero in the goals scored column every week and now with Norwood injured yet again our chances have subsided even more, we just do not have One decent Striker at the club and that is a fact, they all need to be shipped out and quick. Northampton away should be a win but so should Rochdale, Wigan and Wimbledon so I will refrain from going for the win, instead I see this as another goalless effort which would in all probability end even the remotest talk of a top Six finish. The end is nigh, Five to go. COYB'S.




The Opposition – Northampton Town



Image



The club was founded on 6 March 1897 by a group of local school teachers who got together with the local solicitor A.J "Pat" Darnell at The Princess Royal Inn, Wellingborough Road to form the town's first professional football club. Their initially chosen name was Northampton Football Club, but after objections from the town's rugby club, the club was called Northampton Town Football Club. They joined the Northants League and spent two seasons there, winning the championship the second season. They then spent two seasons in the Midland League, before joining the Southern League in 1901–02. Led by player-manager Herbert Chapman the club were champions of the Southern League in 1908–09 and played against Newcastle United in the Charity Shield match, losing 2–0 at The Oval.

In 1919–20, the first season after the war, Town conceded a club record 103 goals. Nonetheless, the club was allowed to join the Football League for the following season, in Division Three (South). 1922–23 saw the club become a public company and 8,000 shares were released at £1. The season produced a record crowd of 18,123 against Plymouth on Boxing day and gate receipts for the first time exceeded £1,000. 1923–24 started with the club raising £5,000 to build a stand with a players' tunnel underneath and also improved terracing in the Hotel End. The following season saw the formation of the supporters' club. In 1925 the club's first foreign transfer took place as William Shaw was signed from Barcelona. A new ground record was set for the F.A. Cup third-round replay with Sunderland, 21,148 turned up to see the Cobblers lose 3–0. However, disaster occurred at the County Ground during December 1929, when a fire destroyed three stands, with damage valued at around £5,000. Only one stand was saved although this was charred. The source of the fire was thought to be in the away dressing room; the Cobblers had earlier entertained AFC Bournemouth reserves. By August 1930, the stands were rebuilt.

In 1932–33, the club created history when brothers Fred and Albert Dawes both scored in an 8–0 win over Newport County. The latter finished the season scoring 32 league goals and even scored four in a 4–0 win over the Netherlands national football team while the club was on tour. In 1933–34, the F.A. Cup fifth round was reached for the first time courtesy of a fourth round win away to Huddersfield Town who, at the time were top of Division One. The Cobblers lost to Preston North End 4–0 at Deepdale, setting a new ground record of 40,180. In the three seasons prior to the breakout of World War II, the Cobblers finished seventh, ninth and 17th respectively in Division Three (South). In the final match prior to the war, they travelled to Dean Court and lost 10–0, the club's record league defeat. During the war the Cobblers had the record for the first transfer fee received during the hostilities when Bobby King was sold to Wolverhampton Wanderers for a substantial four-figure fee.

Northampton were promoted three times in the five years 1960 to 1965. Starting the 1960–61 season in the Fourth Division, they reached the First Division in 1965–66, their only season ever in the top division of English football. They were then relegated back to the Fourth Division over the next five years, playing in the bottom tier again in 1969–70. During their top-flight season they earned a double against Aston Villa and victories at home over such luminaries as Leeds, Newcastle, West Ham, and Blackburn, the latter being the only team Northampton would finish above in the table.
Since their relegation from the Second Division in 1966-67, Northampton have played every season in either the third or fourth tier of English football.

In 1970, they lost 8–2 to Manchester United in the FA Cup fifth round. Six of the goals conceded were scored by George Best, who received the match ball (signed by Northampton players) as a reward for his performance. For the first time since becoming a league side the club had to apply for re-election in 1971, they finished the most favoured club with 49 votes. In the 1974–75 season, future England International Phil Neal was sold, after 200 games in all competitions for the Cobblers, Liverpool bought Neal for a then club record of £65,000, whilst playing in the same side of another future England International, John Gregory. Finally during the 1975–76 season, the club finished 2nd in Division Four and were promoted behind champions Lincoln City. They did this without losing a home game and having every regular player scored during the season, including the goalkeeper, Alan Starling, who netted from a penalty in the penultimate home game against Hartlepool United. In 1976–77, the club were relegated back to Division Four, the season started with ex-Manchester United assistant manager, Pat Crerand in charge, however he resigned in the new year. No new manager was appointed, instead a committee was formed consisting of the chairman, the coach and three senior players. Prior to the start of the 1979–80 season, George Reilly was sold to Cambridge United for a then record of £165,000, he had been the club's top scorer for the previous two seasons.

New floodlights were installed in time for the 1980–81 season, but they failed during the first match against Southend United and the game had to be abandoned. The club struggled in the bottom half of the Fourth Division for the first half of the decade, however 16-year-old Aidy Mann became the club's youngest player. In 1984–85, the lowest ever league attendance was recorded at the County Ground where only 942 people turn up to watch the Cobblers lose 2–0 at home to Chester City; this was also the only ever league attendance under 1,000. In the same year, The club managed what seemed like a major coup when they appointed Tony Barton, who had won the European Cup with Aston Villa two years previously, as manager. Barton's only season in charge proved severely disappointing however, as the club were never outside the bottom two, and health problems forced Barton's resignation near the end of that season. Success was achieved under Barton's replacement, Graham Carr, who brought in several players from the non-league in addition to a number of quality league players to finish eighth in his first season in charge. The 1986–87 season saw Northampton win the Fourth Division championship, gaining a club record total of 99 points and scoring 103 goals, 29 of them to Richard Hill, who was transferred in the summer to Watford for a club record fee of £265,000. The club adjusted to life in Division Three quickly and just missed out on a play-off place despite finishing sixth. Important players such as Trevor Morley and Eddie McGoldrick were sold and the team fell back down to Division Four in the 1989–90 season.

The 1990s began badly, with the club relegated to the Fourth Division at the end of the 1989–90 season. The following season began well as the club looked on course to return to the Third Division at the first attempt. They were top of the table in February, but fell away and finished mid-table. Things then got even worse and the club went into administration in April 1992, with debts of around £1.6 million. Ten players were sacked and youth players were drafted in to make up the numbers; results did not improve. These events sparked the formation of the Northampton Town Supporters' trust, which has a share holding in the club and a representative on the board of directors. This was the first such instance of a supporters' trust taking over a football club.

The club needed to win the final game of the 1992–93 season to avoid being relegated to the Conference. Over 2,500 made the trip to Shrewsbury Town and saw the Cobblers win 3–2, despite being 2–0 down at half-time. The 1993–94 season got worse for the Cobblers as they finished bottom of the Football League for the only time in the club's history. Relegation was only escaped due the Conference champions, Kidderminster Harriers, not meeting the necessary ground criteria. The club eventually began its move to Sixfields.

The club moved to new ground, Sixfields Stadium, in October 1994. The change of ground did not change the club's fortunes and they finished 17th, with Ian Atkins taking over as manager from John Barnwell halfway through the 1994–95 season. After two more seasons, in the club's centenary season 1996–97, Atkins lead the Cobblers to Wembley for the first time in 100 years, where they beat Swansea City 1–0 in the play-off final, John Frain scored the winning goal from a twice-taken free kick deep into injury time. The following season Northampton made the Division Two play-off final, but was lost 1–0 to Grimsby Town in front of a then record 62,998 crowd, with the greater than 40,000 Northampton fans also then a record for the most supporters taken to Wembley by one team. Northampton were not able to progress from the previous year's success because of long-term injuries to 16 of their players during the 1998–99 season. The team was relegated to Division Three, despite being not losing in the last nine games of the season. However, there were some promising results such as a 2–1 aggregate win over West Ham United in the League Cup. The 1999–2000 season saw the club bounce back to Division Two, finishing in the third automatic promotion spot. Ian Atkins left the club in October following a poor start to the season; his assistant, Kevin Wilson and coach Kevan Broadhurst took joint charge for the rest of the month. Wilson, the former Chelsea player, was appointed manager at the start of November, going on to win two manager of the month awards.

The following season started promisingly, with players such as Marco Gabbiadini and Jamie Forrester pushing the Cobblers towards a play-off place before the club eventually finished in 18th place due to a large number of injuries in the second half of the season. Kevin Wilson was sacked in November 2001, to make way for his assistant Kevan Broadhurst, who steered the Cobblers from relegation to a remarkable survival with a game to spare after losing only one home game from mid-January. The next season was the worst since the early 1990s, both financially and on the pitch. Early on they were forced into a 'Save our Season' campaign to keep afloat until the end of the year. It was required after the collapse of ITV Digital and much publicised takeover attempts by John Fashanuand Giovanni Di Stefano had failed and left the club with huge debts. They were taken over by a consortium run by Andrew Ellis, who sacked Broadhurst in January 2003, when Northampton were struggling at the foot of the division. He was briefly replaced by former England player Terry Fenwick who was sacked after a winless spell of seven games. This was, at the time, the eighth-shortest managerial reign in English football history. Martin Wilkinson, the new manager lasted little longer, being dismissed in October 2003 in favour of former Scotland and Tottenham Hotspur defender Colin Calderwood. Calderwood led Northampton to the play-offs in his first season, where they were knocked out in the semi-finals by Mansfield Town after a penalty shoot-out. In the 2004–05 season, Northampton finished seventh, again in the play-offs, where they were defeated by Southend United. Following this, the manager made substantial changes to the squad, bringing in experienced players such as Ian Taylor and Eoin Jess, and they enjoyed a successful 2005–06 league season. On 29 April, the Cobblers clinched promotion to Football League One, with a 1–0 win at home to Chester City. On 30 May 2006, Northampton announced that Calderwood was leaving to join Nottingham Forest as their new manager, and he was replaced by John Gorman on 5 June. On 20 December, Gorman resigned due to "personal issues" with the side 18th in the table, with Ian Sampson and Jim Barron briefly taking care of first team affairs. He was replaced by former Southampton boss Stuart Gray on 2 January 2007. The Cobblers were relegated from league one on the final day of the 2008–09 season, after suffering a 3–0 defeat away at Leeds United and other results went against them.

Northampton caused an upset in the third round of the 2010–11 Football League Cup, knocking out Liverpool at Anfield. The game was drawn 2–2 after extra time, and the Cobblers beat the team 69 places above them 4–2 on penalties, the winning penalty being scored by Abdul Osman at the 'Kop End'.

Ian Sampson was sacked as manager on 2 March 2011 after a poor run of form saw the Cobblers fail to win in eight games and sit in a disappointing 16th position in League 2. Sampson's last game in charge was a 2–3 defeat against Burton Albion, the manner of this defeat ultimately costing him his job. Sampson's sacking brought to an end a 17-year association with Northampton, and his commitment to the club has guaranteed his status as a legend in fans' hearts.

David Cardoza moved quickly and Gary Johnson was unveiled as the new manager on 4 March 2011. The appointment was greeted by unprecedented approval, so much so that Johnson stated his decision to join the club was partly down to the support for his appointment of a club forum. Somehow, however, things didn't go so well under Gary Johnson: the club slid further down the table in League 2 and only just avoided relegation at the end of the 2010–11 season. The beginning of the 2011–12 season was no improvement for the Cobblers and the embarrassment was only further heightened after a loss to Luton Town on 12 November 2011 in the FA Cup first round. Gary Johnson left the club on 14 November 2011 by mutual consent.

In December 2011 Northampton appointed ex-Watford manager Aidy Boothroyd as their new manager. After drafting in players such as Ben Harding, Luke Guttridge and Clarke Carlisle, Boothroyd managed to keep Northampton in the league and in the summer set about transforming the club into a club with promotion ambitions. He signed high-profile players such as Clive Platt, Alex Nicholls, Chris Hackett and Joe Widdowson and made Sixfields a fortress in the opening months of the campaign. On 18 May 2013, Northampton reached the League 2 play-off final, losing 3–0 to Bradford City. After a poor start to the 2013–14 League Two season, Northampton found themselves at the foot of the table and as of 21 December they had only won four games. Boothroyd was subsequently sacked.

From the start of the 2013–14 season, Northampton shared their Sixfields Stadium with Coventry City with the West Midlands club going through a protracted dispute with the owners of their previous home, the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.

On 27 January 2014, David Cardoza appointed former Oxford United manager Chris Wilder as the new manager of the club on a three and half-year deal.

In October 2015 HM Revenue and Customs issued the club with a winding-up petition over unpaid taxes.

In February 2016, Northampton Town broke their club record of eight successive wins by beating Wycombe Wanderers 1–0, extending the winning run to nine. The season was successful and resulted in promotion to League One on 9 April. A draw at Exeter combined with Oxford United's defeat at home to Luton Town meant that they clinched the League 2 championship a week later on 16 April. The Cobblers went on to play their first season in the third tier of English football since 2009. In the 2016–17 season, after a 5–0 defeat to Bristol Rovers, Rob Page was sacked and replaced with Justin Edinburgh. Northampton finished 16th, meaning that they would continue to play third tier football. They made it to the Third Round of the EFL Cup, where they lost to Manchester United F.C.. They were unsuccessful in the F.A Cup however, losing 1–0 to Stourbridge F.C. in the Second Round.

On 26 June 2017 a 60% stake in Northampton Town was purchased by Chinese company 5uSport. The company indicated that they would invest in both the playing budget and stadium development. Although the investment was technically a takeover, Kelvin Thomas remained chairman and the two parties have acted in partnership since.

On 4 September 2017, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was appointed as manager on a three-year deal, replacing Justin Edinburgh who had been sacked after four losses from the start of the season. His first game was against Doncaster Rovers five days later, a home tie which ended in a 1–0 victory for Northampton Town. He was sacked on 2 April 2018 after Northampton Town went 9 games without a win.

On 1 October 2018, Keith Curle became the manager of the team.

On 29 June 2020, the club were promoted to the EFL League One after beating Exeter City in the playoff final, despite a delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the United Kingdom.

Nice “opposition” picture there. Didn’t realise Northampton had such a large following. Didn’t think there’d be that many people in the town never mind out and about supporting the club. Good stuff. Horrible colour though.

Is it possible to not care less about not caring less about this? I certainly couldn’t care less but I think I couldn’t care less MORE than caring 100% less.
Reckon it’ll be a draw. Who G’sAF.

The Irony of being taken over by someone calling themselves Gamechanger when every game with us seems to be the goddamn same. Where's the change, seems to be pretty much consistent here in that we can't score a goal and the team, for want of better words, is sub-standard.

Can't be another 0 - 0 surely but if it came to pass you could see a certain level of humor in it. If you can't laugh at the ineptitude of the situation what can you do. Voted for us to win, just some internal belief from somewhere, in all (probability) stand to be disappointed once more.

Northampton 0 Ipswich 2

Let's hope we saw some green shoots against Charlton and not the final dying flame of the season flickering.

Don't know why he doesn't play Hawkins as the lone striker. Might be more effective than Jackson at getting the midfielders and full backs into the game in the attacking third.

I'm going to vote for a 2-0 victory on this one. Not ready to stop being an optimist yet.

7 hours and 19 mins since we last scored a goal.

It’s got to happen sometime. Going for a 0-1 win.

Would love it to be Flynn Downs but think would take anybody being honest

For me, over last few games Downs would deserve it but Kane Vincent-Young could be just the man.. If stay fit
