Who Ate All The Mince Pies?

Just like the Cobblers, Charles, Danny and Chessie are back to talk all things Northampton Town as a new year dawns on the world.

On this week’s episode:

Swindon Town 5-2 Northampton Town

I think it’s fair to say that none of us saw that result coming. Especially after John Guthrie put the Cobblers ahead on 50 minutes.

Should we be embarrassed by the performance and ultimately, the result though? Did the enforced winter break over Christmas do the Cobblers more harm than good? Just what do we take away from this game?

Covid Situation

With 13 games called off in EFL this weekend – 4 in League 2 alone – we ask whether the 5 sub rule be allowed again and discuss the latest news regarding EFL clubs no longer testing on match days.


Is it ok to have a second team? That’s the question posed to us this week by Spurs fan – and Cobblers follower – Brett Nurse. Brett also asks about home game rituals that we have, places to go pre-match, that sort of thing. Chessie’s suggestion of finding an old scarf from the 80’s might not quite fit the bill…

We’ve also had a question of ticket price increases from Richard Dewhirst. Rich noticed that Swindon have increased their match ticket price to £35 for this Friday’s FA Cup 3rd round tie with Manchester City. He wonders whether we would be happy paying that amount for a one off game against the best team in the country.

NTFC Women

An away game at Oughtibridge War Memorial kickstarted NTFC Women’s 2022, who were 2-0 down at half time. Thankfully, goals from Charlie Cooper, Bianca Luttman and an Alex Dicks brace, secured a magnificent turnaround as the Cobblers won 4-2 to remain top of the league. The Cobblers are now 4 points clear with two games in hand. Go on the Cobblers!
