Notts County Vs Crewe Alexandra


Recommended Posts

The big day! I feel I will be saying this for sometime, although Saturday will the big promotion £10 adults and £1 for children. It's a shame the offer couldn't included away fans, it might have the away end full but I guess it makes sure we at least bring in some normal finance. Yet I do hope fans come down, even if it's a case of taking up the offer and meeting up old friends. It's a great deal!

Notts will have to put aside the disappointment of last Saturday against Carlisle, they need to be stronger at the back and on the break.

I honestly feel we would have won if these two areas had been spot on, it certainly wasn't a lack of effort on goal for me because Gillespie had a great game - Despite him showing a lack sportsmanship.

Crewe - Cannot be written off, they have a good system and for sure they can pass, although
Mathias Pogba also is one to watch.

Notts - Will have to be stronger, I'm unsure about Leacock personally. Some have mentioned they would give Manny Smith a chance, even at the expense of Gary Liddle. It might be wise to remain unchanged, although I think a few a starting to notice that Deano isn't looking the same right now.

I can't say I see a win, part of me says a draw but I think Crewe will take the game.

Fantastic win!

It gets easier when you can performance like this, I am one of the fans who felt we could do much better. I think if we can do this against the bigger boys and I don't mean win 4-0, I mean play as a unit and respect each passing phase then we can't go wrong. CK's pressing the side and I have to be honest, I felt nervous but I had a good feeling.

Reason I felt nervous was because the win was vital, no matter how it happened. It's a good chance to get the support we need and I really want us to gain it!

I don't blame for staying away, tho my support will always be given. Think the fact we had direction helped, so hopefully some will consider coming again but I do feel the club need to try and attract them. It's probably time for more ways to win them over, the club released a video of the players and I didn't like it. It felt like we were desperate but I have to hand it to the media team. :)

Great result and good for CK. Hopefully we can just continue to make progress!

That is a fair review, agree with most of that.

Notts looked more balanced, creative and threatening going forwards than of late tbh. Defensively there were still lapses and the odd dodgy moment but, fortunately, Crewe fluffed half a dozen decent chances. They reminded me of us - plenty of possession, quite good on the counter attack but hopeless in the final third. We do seem to have found the knack of taking our chances now there is admire settled look about the side - and McGregor is in it!

Overall, we were the better side and thanks to some clinical, decisive finishing deserved the result in my view. Some of Boucaud's passing was top class, McGregor was different class and Haber looks like he could be a very significant acquisition. Good stuff Notts.

There was a few moments with Deano where he had me concerned, especially when it was 2-0 and they looked bright. He really did miss place some passing, although noticeably there was weak moments by others. It's a good job Gary Liddle wasn't dropped because he held his own, his physical presence and aerial ability was what needed - especially with their crossing.
