Hopefully a new manager is assigned and recruited by this game although I don't think they will get involved with the team to avoid distraction from the game. However the philosophy won't change. I finally think we will see the Dennis and Hemmings and the fast wingers of Thomas and Boldewjin firing balls into the box, I think the midifeld will consist of Vaughan and Milsom with the usual defence.

We will see what happens come Saturday but I am really looking forward to a new style of play and a manager that knows how to exploit weaknesses in teams and gives this a real good go. There is no one linked tot eh job that I wouldn't take ... Yes that includes Nolan (I was never for Nolans sacking)

Who took charge against Doncaster Rovers tonight? Paul Hart??

I wouldn't rush to make an appointment, especially leading up to a game - they tend to sit them out anyway. I would like to see whoever took charge in the EFL Cup game and see if they can spark some revival. It's important Notts gets on with the task, it's a game I could see us winning but at the moment I am a little unsure.

got to put on a positive display now at home, i know its likely that a temporary person will take charge but something needs to be done. we cant just play defensive football in front of our fans, this would annoy me tbh.

Alan has said hes not going to rush an appointment, so he'll leave the team in the hands of Steve Chettle. Dont change a winning team Steve.

I am curious as to why Steve Chettle is taking charge and not Paul Hart, where is Paul these days?

If Chettle can get Notts playing well enough to win I don't mind him taking temporary charge but if he does well enough, I would worry he would land the job and then people might end up wanting him out due to his inexperience.

As the game builds I hope fans in attendance will be mindful and supportive, if the players don't perform well - it's something that must be accepted. The clubs without a manager and no blame should fall on Steve Chettle.

I just don't want to go and regret doing so because morons decide to be abusive or negative.

It's been thankfully unlike this but sometimes some are quick near to where I sit to forget about certain things, the game won't be easy but we could do well. Forget about the previous scores, results and our league position. Go out and stick to a game plan and try to impress.

I hope we can get at least a point out of it because we really need it. Without a manager it will be slightly harder but they did play better at the cup game so hopefully it will be similar tomorrow.

Chettle has said after the donny game he wouldnt want the managers job, hes happy working with the youngsters. I hope Notts can pull off the win.

Second season in a row we've played Cheltenham on Matchday 18. Exeter began their run to the play-offs on this matchday in 2016-17 season. One can hope

I can't watch another awful home performance, I don't care if Steve Chettle has been forced into the role. He needs to get them trying and playing their hardest, if we fail to click I think the issue could be a timely one to fix in the long run.

Terrible match and even worse result. How the players go from winning in the cup to this is beyond belief. A manager needs sorting asap and make it a compitent one. Paul hart should actually know the players by now but doesnt make it his fault because they have been very hit and miss for months.

It was a very familiar Paul Hart managerial performance. As a technical coach with the younger players, he has a successful track record. When he’s involved in tactics etc...Oh dear. To be fair though, today wasn’t the manager (even though the question needs asking, what the bloody hell have they been doing all week to look so disorganised and either unfit or just lazy?) but the formation didn’t help. Players should shoulder most of the blame there.

Surely they should be trying their hardest without needing the manager to force them to

One striker? Enzio Boldewijn floating around? It's never going to work. Enzio I'd clearly a winger and he did okay but he needs to be disciplined. Roaming doesn't suit him at all.

The midfield wasn't very good, defensive Notts was deep and the engine never got going.

First goal stung Notts, second goal finished us off. The players was never going to respond, let's not blame them and can we focus on supporting the next manager.

bad decisions on all parts, it needs sorting out soon otherwise we will be relegated.

The players didn’t respond from minute one. So disorganised and disinterested. Absolute shambles.

Rubbish from first to last minute. I agree with all the booing, and its not often I'll say that. The fans had every right to show this displeasure. And the clapping at times was funny as it was aimed at the Cheltenham players ironically!

Notts played okay until they scored, it wasn't terrible until then. Enzio Boldewijn and Kristian Dennis worked well. The issue was the defence, Jamie Turley is no right back and the partnership in CB was terrible.

Turley should have played there.

Not our greatest game .. we played well untill they scored the first goal then after that we seemed to loose heart and our way .. the ref didn’t help with his whistle and decisions but nothing that would impact the game. The injuries to Thomas and jones Another set back in the team just not our day unfortunately.

Spineless and gutless. Need we say any more?

No creativity in the midfield and definitely no defensive qualities either. They are a complete shambles and if nothing is done to organise this rabble soon it will be “Welcome to the newest National league club in the world”.

The game was awful but the worst? No where near to that level.

The team just played like one which had no direction, Chettle came across clueless and if he takes charge of any more games god help Notts. First half was okay, nothing special and disconnected. After that it was boring and rubbish.

Terrible performance and no leadership on or off the pitch.

I left for home after all the issues started happening, Meadow Lane becomes a nasty place to visit when people can't take losing.

Three faults from the performance and Cheltenham game for me.

  1. One striker
  2. No actual leader on the pitch
  3. A verbal but nonsense Richard Duffy returning and being made captain

What was Chettle thinking? Half time he should have made the required changes because it was obvious the second half would only get more difficult. I felt more annoyed at the squad selection than anything else. It was never going to win!
