Which player has impressed you in the turn around at meadow lane.?

Recommended Posts

Jamie Turley. A proper League Two no nonsense defender. He has sorted this defence right out ... If in doubt kick it out seem to be his motto and he is exactly what we needed.

I’m going with @samwatto2008 on this one Jamie turley all the way he has took charge and has given ross some confidence.. you know it’s good when Ross cracks a smile followed by a fist bump and that for me is down to him.

Whilst I also agree that Turley (ha, predictive text wants to put Turkey!) has been a massive influence at the back and is probably the key, I want to make a special mention for Steady. I never used to be a massive fan of his, but the bloke always gives everything he has got and is a credit to our club. Every time we are in a bad run, you can guarantee he never shirks responsibility and you just can’t fault his effort.

I think if we was to be fair, I would have to say Ross Fitzsimons as he looked awful until the new defenders arrived. He's coming on leaps and bounds now, so I would say him for the fact he didn't just give up.

enzio boldewijn because hes found his feet, he looked iffy when he first came but hes doing well now. hes one of those players you need to give a certain amount of freedom in exchange for the heart and fire that he brings. by far the most impressive player during the turn around, as he never gave up.

Some great call outs guys, but for me it has to be the return of Rob Milsom, just look at the influence he has had on Elliott Hewitt's game.

I would say Enzio has been a major driving force for Notts even before the 'turn around' happened but honestly, Lewis Alessandra has been a massive improvement for Notts and I feel he's been playing his best football under Harry Kewell.

He seems focused, eager to start and plays some great football.

Defensively he has offered a lot also, so it's hard to think elsewhere and I hope he can keep it up.

Lewis Alessandra you can see in his play that he wants to impress.

By featuring less under Kevin Nolan, he has caught the eye of Harry Kewell and has been rewarded with a regular starting place due to his form.

From what I have read and heard, I feel Enzio Boldewijn is the type of player that Notts have been missing for some years.

A natural winger that is comfortable taking on the opposition.

Cedric Evina for me, without him at left back we would be lost a little.

He's good at defending and his crossing is near perfect for this league, he just offers us something that some of the others don't.

Jon Stead has made a real impact since giving him the captaincy, he's leading the side with all his experience and he gets a lot of stick for putting in effort that some players could only dream of giving.

He's just that steady professional.

I can't mention just one player.

I feel all the new defensive signings have made a real impact, Cedric Evina, Elliott Ward and Jamie Turley add a lot of experience and grit to the back. Lewis Alessandra has been class under Harry Kewell, he has shined and deserved to start. Jon Stead and Enzio Boldewijn are two players you can expect to cause sides headaches, they have equally done well also.

Jon Stead is the easy and obvious answer for me.

He seems to be the type of guy who arrives with a smile and works hard to keep it, he can go home after any game he's played this season knowing he's given 100% but I do agree that he's stepped things up and rewarded the club after Harry Kewell made him the captain.

I just hope once Richard Duffy returns that he doesn't lose it.

Stead has done wonders and he has sparked some of the revival in my opinion.
