Bring It On - Cobblers

A load of Cobblers... Honest, they are!
Bring it on - Cobblers.

It's FA Cup round two weekend, and after beating Southport in round one, Wednesday welcome Northampton Town to Sheffield 6 on a distinctly wintery afternoon.

So what does one of the opposing lot think of their chances today? Who should we look out for and are they still bothered about Giles Coke?
To find out these answers we posed the questions to ArmchairCobbler81 of Northampton Town forum,

1) What did you expect from Northampton Town this season?

Pushing for the play-offs at least but with the talent in the squad automatic promotion.

2) How worried were you that you MIGHT have actually signed Francis Jeffers?

I didn't take it seriously at all considering the reduction in our budget.

3) Which player out of your squad has been the player of the season so far?

Liam Davis, but more recently Leon McKenzie who's scored goals despite carrying an injury.

4) Ian Sampson, right man for the job?

The jury is still out but he's Cobblers through and through so I want him to succeed.

5) Giles Coke, what do you think of him?

He was injury prone but you could tell he had that bit of class. Typical of today's footballer though. We looked after him whilst injured and he jumped ship as soon as a better offer came along. He'll do it to you so I'd sell him in January!

6) If you could sign one player to make the difference in your side (realistically) who would it be and why?

Adebayo Akinfenwa.

7) If you could chuck one player out of your squad, who would it be and why?

Steve Guinan, His legs and heart have gone and the majority fans despise him.

8) What do you know about Sheffield Wednesday?

A sleeping giant. I remember the two cup finals in 93 when you had players of the calibre of Waddle, Hirst, Nilsson and Woods.

9) Team news ahead of the game?

McKenzie likely to be rested for our relegation scrap, Davis returns after suspension. Maybe a debut for Jarvis who signed on loan.

10) Prediction?

4-2 to the Owls.

So thanks to the ArmchairCobbler and everyone from who took the time to answer our questions, you can of course see all their reactions on our messageboard in the BRING IT ON thread.
