Recommended Posts

Mean of 5

Schofield 6 Another clean sheet, distribution still not there..but a confident performance

Brindley 7 An absolute worldie of a strike. 

Rawlinson 6.5 His best game for Notts

Turner 6.5 another solid performance

Bakayogo 6.5 Very strong..contender for MotM until he had to go off

Rose 4.5 Some sub standard passing including a complete hospital pass to Turner

Doyle 5.5 Experience told

Shields 5.5 Can deliver a good ball countered with a complete hash of a corner.

Boldewijn 6.5 Have to say Enzio has been a revelation today with his defensive covering and work rate

Wootton 6.5 Great work rate and a stupendous shot second half narrowly over the bar

Dennis 7 Thoughtful movement...really good flicked goal, in form 

Subs

Booty 5.5 

Kelly Evans 5.5

Thomas 5

I think your mean of 5 is a bit mean, so here are my ratings with a mean of 6:

Slocombe 6 - the only reason he gets an average mark is because he had very little to do, apart from a bit of catching practice!
Brindley 7.5 - not only solid defensively, but a world class strike for the opener.
Rawlinson 8* - really committed performance. To say he outshone Turner says all that needs saying.
Turner 7.5 - what we have come to expect, wins far more challenges than he loses.
Bakayogo 7.5 - best game I've seen him play. Sound at both ends on the left, fortunately his injury seems minor.
Shields 7 - decent going forward and played his part defensively.
Rose 6.5 - better in the challenge than when on the ball, but had a decent game.
Doyle 7.5 - gave the back four great protection, always available for a pass, showed what an asset he can be.
Enzio 6.5 - most of his best work was done defensively, still caused them a few problems going forward.
Wootton 7 - did exactly what a target man should do, and has a fair bit of skill for a big man.
Dennis 7 - missed a sitter but scored a goal from nothing. Always looked lively.

Kelly-Evans 6.5 - probably more at home on the right, but a good option to bring on from the bench.
Booty 6 - did his job when he came on.
Thomas 6 - no real involvement but helped us see out the last few minutes.

A really good, committed performance against a decent team. The fact they were only good up to the final third is more down to our defensive shape than their failings. We actually looked like a team that is hard to beat. I'm still not quite ready to join the Ardley fan club, but he can be given nothing but credit for the last few games. Keep it going Neal and please make me apologise at the end of the season.

Slocombe 6 - I agree with the above comments, he had little to do but he did make some good saves - i.e the free kick placed into the top corner.
Brindley 8 - Just outstanding going forward and, good picking up the ball. He moved it very well.
Rawlinson 8 - Like Brindley, he did very well. His best performance by miles in a Notts shirt. He looked steady and alert, preventing a goal by blocking the shot.
Turner 6.5 - What was needed he did well, however, I still feel there's something not quite right and at times he struggled due to what appears to be fitness related (this was before his injury).
Bakayogo 7 - Looked much better than his Tuesday night performance, he plays better when others around him are brighter.
Shields 7 - Picked the ball up several times, moved well and looked very lively. I felt he defended very well too.
Rose 5 - I think he did okay, yet he's currently performing like a shadow of his former self.
Doyle 9 - He gave everything and did well, best performance by him for a while and would be my MOTM.
Enzio 5 - Did well defensively at times, winning important headers, but he's still in cruise control and not doing as well as he could be doing. Offensively, only a few lively moments. The rest very standard.
Wootton 7 - Workhorse, played very well and looked lively whenever he was presented with the ball.
Dennis 7 - Looks to be in form right now, he's confident when taking a chance which is what you need to see from a striker. He defended well at times too.

Kelly-Evans 7 - Very keen to get on the ball, offered a lot of direct pace and did well from a sub point of view.
Booty N/A - I didn't really notice much, and I don't think it's fair to rate him.
Thomas N/A - As above, he did well for the time he featured but nothing worth rating.

@Elite_pie "I think your mean of 5 is a bit mean, so here are my ratings with a mean of 6:"

Hate to be mean but worthy of an explanation...:frantics:

5 is the half way point... upwards of 5 gives 10,  5 below gives 0

So if you work of a mean of 6, someone giving a rating of 5 doesn't give a quick view of a slightly below par performance, whereas my like for like scoring of 4 reflects that position, off the mean of 5

Having said that always respects @Elite_pietake on things as he always thoughtful in his posts

I listened to the match on the radio with @GrannyPie.I can't give player ratings but I have to say  it was very easy listening.Torquay rarely posed any worrying threat and Slocombe and the rest of the team sounded well in control.It sounded to me like an excellent all round team performance

Slocombe 7 - not had much to do, which comes from his organising and the defenders. when needed he was fine, made some good saves.
Brindley 8.5 - fantastic overall performance, yet his goal is simply amazing!
Rawlinson 8 - best performance for him, he looked great and always organising the back.
Turner 6 - did the most part well, yet any fast striker nearby to him he seems to struggle.
Bakayogo 7 - best performance i have seen from him, he did well at the back and looked calm.
Shields  7 - he played very well, just got involved and if he lost the ball he would quickly attempt to recover it. good attitude to have!
Rose 4 - good at times, waste of shirt in others. very poor performance overall, with only a few glimpses of himself.
Doyle 8 - he took some nasty challenges, handled the torquay tactics which seemed to target him as a weak link and i think it made him play better.
Enzio 5 - looked better than he has done in recent weeks but nowhere the standard deserving to start.
Wootton 7 - he looks like a very smart footballer, who thinks fast and links up with others.
Dennis 7.5 - got involved with every part of the game, defending and attacking. he made much of the attacking work by his quick movement.

Kelly-Evans 6 - looked good, we have missed his speed and he made sure to cause torquay some headaches with his direct runs.
Booty 5 - good roar from the fans when he came on, which made him try to get involved but like thomas he did not have a lot to do.
Thomas 5 - he looked okay, did not have time to influence the game

Slocombe 7 - Not much to do but reliable when called up as usual. Good save from the free kick soon after we went 1-0 up

Brindley 8 - That goal 😱

Rawlinson 8 - He's been fantastic and an integral part of our unbeaten run. Play a long ball forward and he'll just head it

Turner 7 - Believe it was him who made a crucial clearance off the line and marked Jamie Reid out the game 

Bakayogo 7 - Very good attacking and defending. Settled down last few games

Shields 7 - Best game in a Notts shirt. Bag of energy, constant threat. Assist for the 2nd goal

Rose 6 - Struggled a little in the first half but grew into the game more as it went on. 

Doyle 7 - Marshalled the midfield superbly, constantly winning back the ball. Funny moment where he completely fooled the ref into thinking Reid had fouled him

Boldewijn 6 - Work rate has improved. Starting to become better in winning the ball back when the opposition get it

Wootton 6 - Brings others into play. Has the odd bad first touch but he's a really important player for us. If he continues this, get him on a permanent 

Dennis 7 - Another goal. Makes good runs and closes the opposition down well

 

Subs

Kelly-Evans 6 - Comfortable when he came on despite not playing in his natural position 

Booty 5 - Saw out the job 

Thomas 5 - Same as Regan

Interesting discussion to be had on the subject of exactly what means what regarding match ratings.  If you make the scale 0-10 then that gives 11 possible ratings, so it could be argued that 5.5 is the mid point.  To be honest, my ratings conform to the Sunday paper ratings I grew up with in the 70s, when a zero rating wasn't an option.  I always try and keep it rational, so my ratings are usually between 4 and 8, which gives a bit of leeway for an exceptionally good or bad performance.  I love these ratings threads for two reasons - firstly it gives me an idea if people saw the game as I saw it, and more importantly it gives those who couldn't attend a general idea of how the players performed.  On that basis, the more ratings offered the clearer the picture becomes.  There is no right or wrong answer on this because we all have different opinions, so have a go!
