Recommended Posts

Pride of Nottingham's latest PONcast is now available for fans to listen to.

@Chris and @samwatto2008 discuss several key topics, including the first away win over Macclesfield Town.

They also touch upon the EFL Trophy and if we agree with the competition.

In addition we debate Notts' chairman Alan Hardy's use of twitter and the contrast between his work and personal life. Also they share points on the recruitment this summer and much more.

What do you think about the discussion?

Can Enzio Boldewijn be more defensive minded?

Has the recruitment improved at Notts or does it still require further work?

Is Harry Kewell utilising all his tools?

Have your say on this weeks Pride of Nottingham PONcast.

brilliant show yet again @Chris and @samwatto2008, my thoughts on the questions.

i dont think enzio is very defensive minded, i would rather he try and avoid giving needless fouls away because he feels he must defend more. provided he tries which he does and is trying to do. i think we can afford to allow him to do what he does best which is to attack.

i see nothing wrong with the requirement, i dont think the managers have done that well with embedding them into the squad and at the same time some of the players have not given a good account of themselves.

i feel harry will only stick with what he knows until hes familiar with the players, so in a way no he is not.

I listened to this yesterday after it first went up but I forgot to reply. I liked it, I though both PON members made a great discussion and shared good points.

Can Enzio Boldewijn be more defensive minded?

He does defend but he looks a little weak in this area, I don't agree that he's lazy because he does chase things. Some players will defend and those that struggle should work on it in training. Enzio is a brilliant attacking minded player, he would be playing higher up if his game was more polished.

Has the recruitment improved at Notts or does it still require further work?

I disagree that the recruitment has been poor, the signings had us all thinking we would run a way with the league and the poor start comes down mostly due to the lack of preparation. Some of the players have struggled with injuries, others got chances when the whole sides form was poor. I think it's been quite good for where we are.

Is Harry Kewell utilising all his tools?

No, not really. He's using the same players and the decision to start Shaun Brisley ahead of others was weird.

I think the performance from Macclesfield doesn't really matter if Harry Kewell can access it and work to improve the areas on the pitch they lacked. So I do agree with what @Chris said, the game could have easily been the other way around.

This PONcast is very good again.

I like the idea to include key questions! Great job Chris and @samwatto2008.

Can Enzio Boldewijn be more defensive minded?

This is an area he could improve on but at the same time he needs to reserve his energy so that he's got more to sprint at the opposition. I think some players could support the attack better, especially in the defence but I wouldn't single out Enzio for his defending.

Has the recruitment improved at Notts or does it still require further work?

I requires some work but this improves as the club does, compare this season to the last one and you can see how its been better. The club looked to strengthen the right areas, we have good players on paper and only the defence was ignored. I don't think any fan can complain about the way it's going.

Is Harry Kewell utilising all his tools?

No but he'd doing just fine with using what he knows.

Playing Shaun Brisley in midfield must have been tactical but I do feel it was a poor decision, Notts lacked a passing midfield and Brisley never held the ball. He didn't break anything up and his performance was average.

It's a valid point about Jamie Turley getting all the praise but he has been the better defender of the two.

Great PONcast lads.
