Getting back OUR Notts County

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) Twitter: twitter fmcj10

Since relegation from League Two to the National League, all the chaos and negativity (only natural) have sort of taken that buzz away. You can see it when you read peoples comments prior to the takeover, things really took a toll.

Now we have a fresh start, hopefully Alexander and Christoffer Reedtz can restore the positive aspects to supporting a club like Notts.

I for one, won't be expecting them to perform miracles and I just hope they can steadily lay out solid foundations which could make the club successful again. This really has to be a structured plan, with time being given to have a proper transition. When he who won't be named took over, things were merry - the Reedtz brothers will have the same issues to face. Albeit much worse with the environment the former owner bred by not being upfront or honest.

I have to say, I do like what I have heard from the new owners. They seem to understand football, they're both clearly professional people and I like that they seem calm in from of the media.

What will it take for them to make Notts County feel like our club again?

I realise it will take time, that the takeover eases things but for myself. I think it will take a while before things feel like we are moving in the right direction, that the club is community minded and the optimistic sense of attending games returns to be fun rather than a task.

The takeover dragged on for what seemed to be forever, thankfully the day arrived and the Danish owners can now focus on restructuring the club.

What I would like to see, is for them to try to get back some of the staff lost or sacked by Alan Hardy.

Proper ground staff with all due respect to the people who came in under Hardy, they're not Notts County and I think it's a shame that people like Trevor Hutchinson are no longer around the club. Likewise, Mike Edwards was a foundation in the club and more than just a fitness coach.

I would like to see a sense of Notts restored, that would give me a good feeling.

Hardy appointed too many ex Forest people for my liking, they didn't have the connection others do to our club.

Just having a sense of normality would help, the excitement of seeing rumours about players and new signings. This season seems like a write off to me.

None of whatever happens can be blamed on the new owners.

It will take time but our club will return.

It still doesn't feel like the new season starts a short time a way, with all the takeover news and is the club going to be wound up. It will take quite a lot of time, I will tell you what would make the biggest difference!

Getting off to a good start could revive things.

I do not expect promotion and would accept a respectful mid-table position. The club needs time to build, yet seeing the squad play with a level of passion and securing some good results would help right?

its a weird feeling right now.

part of me feels lucky we even have a club, the other half feels quite numb to all the nonsense that has happened.

i am proud of how the staff handled the issue, i just hope its never repeated and that the new owners can rebuild. i think getting season ticket holders on board is the start, the feel that notts give will soon return to normal. i notice how the friendlies have turned poor since the players have been paid. 😂

is that not notts county tho. 😛

The take over was very frustrating the time it took the staff and players not be being paid and the fact we are so close to the new season as well and we have not signed no players could be a concern. But personally I think this can only be a good thing the players seem focused. Neil has handled this like a professional and I’m prepared to give Neil another chance due to the pressure he was under but has managed to produce 85% win rate in preseason. Now Hardy has gone you feel the love and pride returning to Notts which is exactly what we need heading to a hard up season. Morale has definitely returned to Notts and with the new owners not seeming like like they want to be front and centre maybe just be enough to see us return to league football next season.

We probably won’t get to know the true and full reason that slap head accepted a cut price deal in the end but we all owe a great debt of gratitude to the Haydn Green Trust for forcing the issue with the threat of administration. 

Haydn Green’s name should be given it’s true kudos in relation to Notts County FC. How many more times does that name have to come up in relation to being the saviour of our club.......

Time to rally behind the club and just be as supportive as possible.

This would go along way towards restoring the pride of Notts County Football Club.

I feel like discussing Notts more without feeling the need to get angry, I should vent some of this by pinning a picture of Alan Hardy on my dart board.

The club will feel like home again soon.

This is the natural change after a takeover, the good work just needs to continue and some fans need to be patient. We can't rush success, or expect promotion without earning it. Do it right and Notts could end up like Lincoln or Luton.

I see in the 2017-18 accounts that Notts employed 100 people full-time. That is what a League One club like Charlton employed. I have to assume it will be closer to 50-60 this year in the National League? I can't see Notts affording to hire many people when revenues are so low.

The takeover provides a huge sigh of relief but this season will see a lot of hard work to undo the damage previously created and not just by Alan Hardy.

It will be good to just enjoy whatever this season brings, at least we have a club.

I am unsure what to suggest, certainly the takeover helps to restore the feeling that the club could be heading in the right direction finally with hard work. The club has been ran into the ground, this goes all the way back well before the Munto season.

People have attempted to patch things up, the cracks reappear and I just hope the Reedtz brothers can avoid the same trap.
