Thank you to Northampton Town supporter Roger for answering these questions!
How long have you supported Northampton Town?
Where did you finish last season?
Relegated from League One.
What do you think of your Manager?
He only had 5 games at the end of last season, but he was a vast improvement on Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.
What are your hopes and expectations for this season?
If we don’t sell anyone without replacements we should make the playoffs.
What impact has the Saints success over the last few years had on the football club?
Not a great deal, Saints support comes from all over Eastern England, we have as much support as them from the town.
One(s) to watch?
Who do you think will finish in the top 7?
Northampton & six others.
Who do you think will finish in the bottom 2?
Macclesfield and Morecambe. They’re both punching above their weight.
Are you concerned you are now in free fall given your financial situation? Would relegation to the National League kill off the club?
We are not in free fall, did relegation kill off Lincoln? No, so why would it kill off Northampton?
What are your thoughts on Lincoln City?
You made a very good appointment in the Cowleys and I hope that you have got rid of the troublemaking fans that were always about on our previous visits to Lincoln.
Where – or on whom – would you place the blame for relegation?
One person, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.
What do you think the score will be?
2-1 to Northampton.
What will your likely default formation and style of play be for this season?
I have no idea about what formation we will play but we will play on the deck.
Random fact about your Club?
The pitch at the old County Ground was the longest in the League.
If you could steal one Lincoln City player for your own team, who would it be and why?
I haven’t seen Lincoln play for several years so I’ve no idea about the players.
What are your proudest and most embarrassing moments as a Northampton Town Supporter?
Winning at Anfield in the League Cup and half the games last season were embarrassing.
Who would you say is your most underrated player?
Do you have a Supporters Trust and what role do they play at the Club?
The Trust movement started in Northampton, we are the original Trust but we should have more of a role in the running of the Trust.
Are Northampton’s finances a case of a shoemaker leaving his family unshod?
We are not in financial difficulties.
Which was your favourite match involving Northampton Town?
Which was your least favourite match involving Northampton Town?
Losing to Bradford in the playoff final at Wembley.
