The board has been a hive of activity over the past week or so, McKenna linked to just about every job under the sun (bar PM). Sure, at first it felt like it was agent talk perhaps angling for a new deal or just simply keeping the clients' name in the headlines. But, on and on and on it goes, BBC story about him & Pert wanting to move on, 'McKenna is waiting for Chelsea', his representatives 'speaking to Man U, a hyperactivity of journo's across the country all rushing to get an 'exclusive' on the story.

At what point though do we stop blaming the big bad agent as being the sole purveyor of these stories, as if McKenna has no autonomy over his actions and is merely a pawn or makeweight in the chess game of agent posturing & lauding.

I know it's unreasonable to expect a statement from the club/McKenna decrying all speculation and noise as just that, and to reaffirm a commitment to ITFC. But, is the genie out the bottle? I am beginning to think that he is actively agitating for a move, and to be honest, if being adored at a club by a whole county no less with supremely supportive backers is not enough, then I hope goes. ITFC cannot just be a backup. Its been the most amazing 2 years of following this club, having held a season ticket since the ashes of our last prem campaign, but honestly, I think this past week is leaving a (small) bitter aftertaste.

(P.s preemptively accepting accusations of blubbing or bedwetting COYFB)

Another wonderful story from everyones favourite journo

Still scarcely believable reading the line "they will spend the summer preparing for a first Premier League season in 22 years"

Morning all, a chap I was at University with has been missing since the wee hours of Saturday morning (26th), having attended a festival in the Northampton Area.

Any TWTD'ers local to Northampton (or better yet the Kelmarsh area) please share among your friends & on socials, his family are very concerned and say it's out of character.
