Other events that has happened around Notts County


Recommended Posts

This pandemic will hopefully be a one in a life time event.

I have never known a football season to be paused or handled in this way, but I am wondering if any other fans have bizarre or interesting stories that have disrupted the club. It might not be as extreme as the Coronavirus but I would like to see if other fans can share some past events.

I’d go with the Munto season. It’s got to be up there as the most bizarre season ever. Such a high to then go to such a low to then going back to a massive high again. Never seen anything like it and never will.

The current situation is rough, but it’s all football, if we’re just pointing at Notts, then the Munto takes some beating.

The club has been on a rollercoaster for way too long. This current one Is no fault of the clubs. It is what it is.

- Surely nothing can top the Munto season for bizarreness. The unveiling of Sven, the billionaire investors who turned out to be a fat con man with a walking stick...

- Our previous chairman revealing "Little Alan" to the world. My work colleagues IN GERMANY wanted to talk to me about that one.

- According to then chairman Albert Scardino, his takeover went wrong because of 9/11: he was awaiting a cash injection from (I think) GM, whose offices were in the World Trade Center.

- Remember the season our ground was to be renamed the Aaron Scargill Stadium, after a property company? They then did a runner with their customers' money and we started the season sponsorless.

- The war. We had our ground bombed and had sheep grazing on the pitch. But hopefully not both at the same time.
