    I think I've finally worked out this new forum thingy - but you have to be a NASA space shuttle pilot to understand it immediately.
    Another good season in 7046 well underway, with some outstanding performances by promoted sides, particularly Sheff United who were the best team in Div 2 last season and now vying for the Title in Div 1.
    Division 2 will also be a good contest with some decent sides in contention.

    DIVISION 2 - THE GROUP OF DEATH
    Almost impossible to predict how Division 2 will look after 38 matches.
    We've had various leaders throughout the season and only 5 points cover the top 5. Everyone in the top 8 will fancy their chances of an automatic promotion place and the playoffs will feel like a disappointment to those that miss out.
    Sheff United looked away and clear a few weeks ago - but a run of 5 winless matches has seen them get sucked back into the pelaton. Walsall's 1-0 win at the Blades saw them join the leading pack whilst wounding a major rival. A good night for manager Harman.
    All the leading clubs have had good spells of form followed by mediocre runs - so now's the time to be hitting some consistency.
    Sheff Utd still lead by a point from Northampton and Swindon.
    Northampton's position in 2nd may not survive the weekend, though, as they play a red hot Man City who are finally getting the results you'd expect from a stellar squad that includes Messi, Ronaldo and Thiago Silva. After a dire run under the last manager they have now hit Championship form and could sneak into the playoffs.
    Swindon have been in the top 3 all season - a testament to their consistency in a tough division and a fabulous home record. That went out the window tonight as Leeds hammered them 4-2 at the County Ground and cemented 7th place for themselves, just a point outside the playoffs.
    Preston have been unbeaten in the last 6 matches - but the last two have been draws which has stalled their challenge at the top.
    Walsall look very dangerous in 5th.
    Ipswich are on a run of 4 straight wins - but are 4 points off 5th place , so have a lot still to do.
    A vintage season so far with any of these clubs potentially worthy winners of the title that is turning into a real dog fight with 8 matches to go.

    Hey, it's not my fault I'm mountained in debt.
    We only get 6 people to a home match, we've got a massive wage bill and I've had a bad run at the bookies.
    Buying players is the least of my concerns. Not having my legs broken by the loan sharks who keep Northampton afloat is my immediate problem.

    NORTHAMPTON AIM TO KEEP THE RUN GOING
    Div 2 title hopefuls Northampton Town have hit some good form recently - but still trail leaders Sheffield United by 6 points as we enter the "business end" of the season.
    I have to pay credit to the Blades' manager Dave Crawford. His squad is by no means the strongest in the division - but he has an awesome record of getting the best out of them, including a 4-0 thumping of us at their place in the first half of the season.
    With Arsenal and Man City now under new leadership I would expect both to start climbing the table pretty quickly - but the top 10 has a familiar look to it, with perennial challengers Tranmere, Preston and Leeds up there.
    Walsall look like the dangerous team for me. They also hammered us this season at our place and have plenty of talent in the ranks.
    We are in the box seat for an automatic spot, though. We face Wigan next - their first match under a new manager, so not an ideal fixture, but one we should win.
    If Swindon stumble at the same time (and they have also been very impressive this season), then we'd open up a decisive gap over them with just under half of the season remaining. Promotion to the top flight in this GW (which would be our second move up in 4 seasons) would be a dream come true, and we have such a good and improving squad that we should hold our own if we get there.
    Being £40m in debt means I'm definitely stuck with the squad I have for the rest of my time in EC7046 - but it could be worse.

    Shield
    STOKE 1 NORTHAMPTON 4
    A very nice away win against a side riding high in the top flight.
    The "B" team put us into an early lead and when a few of the big guns came on from the bench we powered our way to a famous win.
    Man City away in the league next - and I'm hoping that their Shield exploits will have taken something out of them. They are something of a bogey team for us with journeymen players such as Christiano Ronaldo, Thomas Muller and Lionel Messi always seeming to raise their game when facing the Cobblers.

    d3 Playoff Final
    NORTHAMPTON 3 NORWICH 0
    A Wembley day out, £1m gate receipts - and a happy ending for Northampton after a really topsy turvy season.
    Blew a massive lead in the regular season that saw us going into the Playoff Shootout as the worst-form team of the group.
    Remarkably, everything turned around.
    A 2-0 win in the semis and a comfortable win in the final (we even had a fourth disallowed) - sees us accompany Man City and Ipswich into Div 2.
    Bad luck and sympathy to Norwich/Ruts.
    I hope we get an expanded stadium beyond our cuurent 7000 capacity. it's only fair.

    The Butcher Expects....
    After a calamitous run of form which has seen Northampton go from nailed on division champions to scambling for a promotion spot - the season effectively comes down to one match for us. And what a match...
    We travel to the powerhouse of the division - Manchester City - who have already thumped us at our place.
    Nothing but a win is good enough - but we're going to have to tough it out as an all-out attacking show will probably see us get mauled by a team that holds a +2/+3 advantage over us.
    We should have sealed the title weeks ago but our home form has just been attrocious - as it has for many of our rivals also, to be honest.
    On gates of 7,000 we lose over £1m a turn - so we need to go up automatically to (a) get a bit of cash in and ( hope we get a ground improvement for getting to div 2.
    Also, I've never been promoted through the playoffs ...ever.
    Danilo and Benteke remain sidelined - Benteke has been particularly missed with on loan Bendtner doing sweet FA since we borrowed him from Arsenal. No goals, no assists.
    Win or bust for us - in every sense of the expression.

    Three games to go...and nothing in it at the top of div 3,
    Ipswich, the leaders, seem to have an easiest run-in - facing up against a succession of lower-table, miserable, under-performing, wretched, open to bribery, "linked-with-Asian-betting syndicate" sides.
    The bog-dwelling savages are also on a run of 4 straight wins - so it would take a major downturn in form for Manager Secasiu's team not to clinch an automatic pomotion slot and perhaps the title.
    Look out for "unusual betting patterns"
    Northampton sit second and have the hardest run in - facing 5th place Rotherham and 3rd place Man City in successive matches. The Cobblers led the table for most of the season but have faltered badly in recent weeks.
    A combination of cruel injuries, scandalous refereeing decisions, incredible bad luck and Acts of God are behind the slump - with absolutely no blame being attached to their talented and surprisingly good-looking manager, the truly excellent Butcher of Montevideo.
    One last gritty push is required from the men in maroon - and look out for a Churchillian response from "the gaffer" who simply does not know when he is beaten (until someone tells him)
    Man City (hiss, boo) sit third - a point behind plucky Northampton.
    City are the division's top scorers and are a walking advertisement for the need for Financial Fair Play to be implemented as soon as possible.
    A line up which includes Ronaldo, Messi, Thomas Muller and Angel di Maria would normally be expected to p*ss a division like this one - yet young English manager Steve Thompson has contrived to make heavy weather of it - and makes a compelling case for why clubs should buy-in foreign managers - with little command of the language but possessing a fit girlfriend.
    One feels that the Man City v Cobblers fixture might decide one of the promotion slots next week.
    First though, the Arab billionaire's overpaid playthings face a trip to Yeovil - newly crowned FA Cup winners. Can Thompson hold his nerve? Let's hope not.
    Norwich sit 4th on 62 points. I know very little about the team from Carrow Road - other than I hate them and hope they burn in hell spending an eternity suffering from crabs and continuously listening to Eurovision Song Contest entries.
    Ruts has come with a strong late challenge but has still to face Birmingham and Rotherham in his final two matches.
    That's if the Canaries get past Rochdale tonight in what looks to be a nailed-on home banker. Surely Ruts can't cock it up from such a commanding position?
    Or can he?
    Rotherham lie 5th - and could play a major part in deciding who goes up (including themselves).
    Stewart Lauder's team are 7 points off the lead - so need a minor miracle to have a tilt at the title. Still, let's not forget that only 2,000 years ago a young Israeli international, J.Christ, managed to turn a loaf of Hovis and a can of tuna into a three course meal for 5,000 - so anything is possible.
    No one outside the teams mentioned above is important or has anything remotely interesting about them.

    I'm sitting in The Bombardier Pub in the Place du Pantheon in Paris.
    It's a glorious morning - the sun is out and I've just polished off a full English breakfast - a welcome relief after two days of paying eleven quid for a crepe and 7 quid for a small glass of kronenburg.
    Now tucking in to a pot of tea and a pint of warm beer - served directly from the horse.
    I thought I might cast an eye over some young French stars whilst I'm here - but most of the ones I've seen so far are female and dressed in hot pants and sandals.
    God, I love the summer.
    I'd like to think the same scenery awaits my return to Blighty - but sadly the swamp donkeys and sea monsters that populate my village can't hold a candle to these mademoiselles.

    NORTHAMPTON 3 BIRMINGHAM 2
    Cobblers prevailed in a cracking match against an old adversary, Luis Veigas - and the win sees Northampton hit top spot for the first time this season.
    Coventry's surprising defeat opened the door and we were through it quicker than Rolf Harris at a playground.
    A really good team effort from the lads this season - no prolific goalscorer, hardly anyone getting 7.50 average or better, but the whole lot chipping in throughout a series of good wins.
    We knew Birmingham would come at us "hard" - so I risked going "aggressive" in this one.
    Remarkably, all 11 Northampton players stayed on the pitch. Usually in this fixture they're scraping blood off the advertising boards by full-time.
    We took 60% + possession, and led 3-1 at one stage so I dont think the result flattered us.
    Brilliant tactics by the Butcher - a man with a brain the size of a planet and the body of a withered mummy.
    My birthday today...so I'll boast if I want to.
    A glamour trip to Rotherham up next, and then a cup tie against div 2 Exeter.

    A brace from Benteke helped arrest a poor run of results for Northampton - who are back in the playoff places with this win.
    After 11 games , there are no less than 6 teams tied on 20 points occupying 2nd to 7th place - separated only by goal difference.
    Division 3 could be in for a vintage season - it looks completely up for grabs.
    Surprise leaders Coventry have made a great start and hold a 5 point advantage at the top. They face 4th place Norwich next - a big test for them.
    We have to find some home form to keep our challenge going - and face Chesterfield in a must-win for us.

    Leeds avenged their lone defeat of the season by getting past Ruts' Vale in a comfortable victory.
    Welbeck and Volland did the damage - Volland having now scored 6 goals in 5 matches since arriving at the club.
    The victory makes it 23 unbeaten for Leeds (half a season) in a campaign that has surpassed expectations so far. There are some good sides in div 2 and we've averaged nearly 3 goals a game against them.
    We preserve our 9 point advantage over second place Huddersfield and Derby's slip up gives us a 13-point cushion over 3rd place.

    NORTHAMPTON REVEAL NEW OWNER
    Northampton Town, the small but perfectly formed division 3 promotion hopefuls, announced the identity of their new chairman.
    "Fat Tony" Spilacci, the well-known Sicilian Olive Oil exporter, has taken a "controlling interest in the joint" from outgoing Chairman, Palermo-based Jimmy "The Nose" Alconezzi.

    A model citizen new foreign owner - hurrah!


    Spilacci has been on the look out for a club following his abortive attempt to buy Leeds United. Spilacci lost out on Leeds to North Korean businessman Kim "Our Divine Supreme Leader Who Smells of Sweet Lavender" Il Sun, who himself was recently indicted for possession of a WMD in his Monaco appartment block.
    Spilacci passed the Football League "Fit and Proper Person Test" at his second attempt when the original Chairman of the Committee, who had rejected his first application, was tragically killed in a freak electric toothbrush explosion accident.
    Fat Tony immediately gave his support to incumbent manager, The Butcher of Montevideo.
    Spilacci's appointment also brings up a new record of 2,451 - being the aggregate of years imprisonment to be served by current owners of English football clubs.If Jack The Ripper applied to own a club - he'd get in. Unbelievable that you can appeal that a criminal conviction doesn't disqualify from owning Leeds United , a club in England's third largest city.
    We're becoming a laughing stock and magnet for the lowlifes of the world.
    Still, if he brings Thomas Muller to Leeds I'd be happy.
    I suppose we'd all want some bloke with cash in charge of our favourite clubs - but if it turns us from football fans into tarts, to be fleeced and pampered in equal measure - then I think we're on the wrong course.
    Look at the Bundesliga - that's how to maintain the integrity of your clubs.

    NORTHAMPTON MANAGER INVOLVED IN LOVREN AFFAIR
    The Cobblers completed their first close season transfer with the signing of Croat international defender Dejan Lovren from Ipswich Town.



    The 24-year old (89 rated CB) has been one of the EPL's best defenders this season in a strong Saints team. If Saints start next season well it's hard not to see him hitting 90 and beyond.
    The deal cost Cobblers the deaprture of Ogbonna (25yrs /88) who plays for Juve and a balance in cash that brings the total value up to £15m.
    Northampton manager, Butcher of Montevideo
    ( who was named as the "best under-performing newcomer of EC7046" at the 2013/14 Awards Dinner), had this to say about the deal.
    Lovren is immediately installed as captain and makes his debut tonight as Cobblers face Bury in a friendly
