>Late goal saves Cobblers as new boys shine in draw

>Northampton Town 1-1 Burton Albion
League Two
Saturday, January 30th 2010

The unbeaten run stretched to nine on Saturday afternoon as the Cobblers salvaged a point from a game that looked dead in the water before the introduction of two of our newest faces in the second half. Ian Sampson’s decision to bring on both Kevin Thornton and Stephen O’Flynn was the key as the Cobblers recovered from a goal down to draw and extend the run of games without defeat. Throw in a bit of Bayo rumour, three efforts that struck the woodwork and a last minute goal mouth scramble and you get another roller coaster Sixfields afternoon.

The main talking point in the stands in the first half was about nothing on the pitch – for that was awful – but instead focusing on the exclusion of Bayo Akinfenwa from the squad, apparently with a calf injury. Following the August transfer fiasco involving Danny Jackman you can forgive a few cynics who thought that the big man was packing his things rather than resting a wound.

Bayo’s replacement up front, Courtney Herbert, clearly needs a big arm over his shoulder as he learns the craft of League Two football. The youngster, so full of energy and raw talent, was paired with Billy McKay and looked lost without his foil of Akinfenwa. Expectations from his previous stint in the squad in November meant that the good old boo boys returned as Herbert endured an increasingly frustrating first half.

This was a first half that really never came to life and when you say that the Cobblers had the better of things with two wayward shots from distance you see that there was no real quality on show from either side and a half-time score of 0-0 suited both the match and the league positions that we both find ourselves in –twelfth and thirteenth before kick off.

Suddenly, the second half came to life. O’Flynn was thrown on in place of the flagging Herbert and so nearly scored straight away. A suspicious looking back pass denied the Irishman a touch though and a shocking, slow referee Mr Hall, waved play on.

It was inevitable that Burton would go up the other end to score, and this they did when Shaun Harrad produced a powerful volley that beat Dunn’s dive to his right hand side and the visitors were in front. Harrad was booked for taking his shirt off in celebration in front of his supporters.

Abdul Osman was brought off and the game began to turn as his replacement, Kevin Thornton, began to show his class and took hold of the game in midfield. Billy McKay was close to getting us back in the game shortly afterwards after being set up by O’Flynn but his curling effort came crashing back off the cross bar.

The Cobblers were getting more and more into the game and Thornton’s skill on the left produced a chance for his fellow Irishman O’Flynn but the defence coped well with the effort. With five minutes left, Luke Guttridge curled a free kick against the post and you started to think that the day belonged to Burton.

That was until Andy Holt suddenly found space on the left, having been thrown forward by Sammo in a late three man attacking force, and got on the end of O’Flynn’s flick to beat the Albion keeper with a left footed shot into the corner.

There was still time for late drama and the stage was set in stoppage time when Thornton lined up a free kick just outside the Albion area and curled it onto the under side of the cross bar before Ryan Glligan’s rebound was cleared off the line.

So the Cobblers had to settle for the point but after falling behind it was a good recovery and some sensible substitutions from Sammo. It’s also good to see him throw everything at the game in search of an equaliser with Andy Holt deployed as a third striker late on.

O’Flynn and Thornton were excellent and should the worst happen and Bayo leaves either now or in the summer we might not be quite so lost after all. A huge test away at playoff chasing Dagenham and Redbridge is next up and we have whole WEEK to prepare! It seems odd that there’s no midweeker this week but hopefully that gives Bayo some rest and also some time for the new claret heroes to blood themselves in even more.

  4. >The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.buy fresh blue cheese[url=http://riderx.info/members/buy_5F00_fresh_5F00_blue_5F00_cheese.aspx]buy fresh blue cheese[/url]http://riderx.info/members/buy_5F00_fresh_5F00_blue_5F00_cheese.aspx

  7. >Depending on what your destination is and how long you plan on making your trip for, the airfare may be the priciest expense. Because of this, finding a great deal on the airfare becomes extremely important. The more money you are able to save on the plane tickets, the more money you will be able to use toward your actual vacation. When it comes to purchasing your airline tickets, the sooner the better. This goes for basically anywhere you plan on traveling. When you purchase a ticket sooner, lets say several months before the trip, there will be less of a demand, which will drive the price of the ticket down. However, on the flip side, as the day of the desired flight approaches, the flight's seats will begin to fill up. As fewer and few seats become available, the higher the demand will be, which will drive the price up. Booking the flight in as far advance as you can may save you hundreds of dollars in the long run.Flying during the middle of the week is generally the cheapest time to fly. Fewer people travel during mid week than on Friday through Sunday. If at all possible, fly out on a Tuesday or Wednesday. You may actually find prices significantly less expensive on the Wednesday than the Sunday of the same week. Looking for airfare online will probably be your best be at securing the cheapest possible flight price. There are multiple booking agencies which specialize in finding the cheapest airfare. However, to save time, go to Bing.com, which offers a comprehensive flight search option. Bing will search other travel sites (Expedia, Priceline, Hotwire, etc.) and display the cheapest flight form each site. From here you will be able to decide which website offers the best deal.Students can often find discounted airfare by visiting STA.com. This is the Student Travel Association, and it can sometimes find less expensive airfare for the traveling student. This isn't always the case, but it doesn't hurt to look.

  18. >Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.Winning the GameThe moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.Bingo Game RulesBingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.More Online Bingo Info at Bingo Snooper Visit Now http://www.bingosnooper.com
