Haribos Promised. Not Delivered

If Danny and Chessie wrote Trip Advisor reviews, they wouldn’t not be pretty. Unless they’re about award decision making panels of course!

Bristol Rovers 2-1 Northampton Town

The Cobblers were hoping to get back on track after last week’s FA Cup draw to Cambridge but relenquished their 4 game winning run with defeat to Joey Barton’s Gas.

Sam Hoskins scored a penalty to give the Cobblers a 1-0 lead at half time but two terrible moments of defending saw Rovers take all 3 points and knock the Cobblers down to 4th in the League Two table.

The defeat prompts a discussion about whether, having found a successful formation, Jon Brady’s squad lacks enough depth to be serious contenders for promotion.

Ron Flowers

There was some sad news this week as former Cobblers player and manager, Ron Flowers passed away. None of us are old enough to remember him playing for Town but we send our best wishes to all his friends and family.

Postbag

A question of time comes from Fan Club Slacker, Michael this week. With another high amount of injury time minutes being played, is it time for the FA to introduce a ‘stop clock’?

NTFC Women

Yet again the Women’s side have done us proud! Yes, they’ve made it through to the 2nd round of the Women’s FA Cup for the first time in our history.

A 4-2 penalty win against Bedworth Ladies at Harpole Playing Fields was more than deserved after the Cobblers were held to a 2-2 draw after extra time.

Our sponsored player, Abbie Brewin was named Player of the Match and provides us with some thoughts on the result for the pod. And thanks to listener, Nic Pentelow for providing us with live updates throughout the game.
