  7. That's quality @Chris I remember that I chose Lundy originally as my profile pic because I always felt he wasn't valued that much by Warnock even though He was such an intelligent footballer and very good in the air. His partnership with Gary Mac was amazing under Mick Walker.

  9. Last week
  10. Well I motivated myself to go out yesterday, I took the 79 bus all the way to Arnold and then took pictures for a friends' birthday party. I felt quite anxious going, at the start, I was a little like a fish out of water. As the night went on, I really enjoyed it and took some very nice pictures, which I hope my friends @SIMMO and, his wife treasure. I also would like to thank him for having me there as the photographer, I did come home feeling like I would enjoy doing event photography.
  11. Yes and no @Elite_pie. We shouldn't kid ourselves into thinking that making the playoffs is easy, it isn't and the league is extremely competitive this season. But a points average of 1.78 per game is very high - that would equate to 82 points over a 46-game season and not all of the top nine will be able to keep that pace for the rest of the season. In the past, a points total in the low or mid 70s has been enough to finish in the top seven. I don't think a team with 80 points has ever finished below seventh. To win the league, you need more than 90. 80 will be comfortably enough for the playoffs, 70 and we miss out.
  12. This table shows the form of the last 8 games. Upcoming fixtures: Southend (H) Chesterfield (A) Kings Lynn (A) Wrexham (H) Dover (A) Barnet (H) Wealdstone (A) Bromley (A) The league table is extremely tight, I wouldn't disagree with that but as I mentioned, we are near the point where teams will start to fall or struggle in general. I do not believe, for a second, Notts will fall in form over the next two months. If anything, we should improve a lot more, but with everything, it's about getting those all important points. In the run of fixtures I listed, I would say two of them will be difficult with Chesterfield and Wrexham. A key point, would be to improve on our away form, which during December to January will be critical for Notts. The table also shows the dip that clubs within our area are starting to struggle. If we do, I as I wrote, strengthen up a little in January - this would give the squad a lease of confidence, but I still feel we are good enough to finish within the play-offs as things are. I would be interested to see how the league looks predicted based on form for the whole season.
  13. I don't think that's true, it's so tight at the top end that even a slight dip in the form we've shown so far could see us miss out on the playoffs. The 'games in hand' bit makes the table a bit inaccurate, so I did a table based on points per game: 1. Chesterfield 2.12 PPG (GD+20) 2. Boreham Wood 2.06 (+13) 3. Halifax 1.94 (+12) 4. Bromley 1.89 (+12) 5. Grimsby 1.78 (+11) 6. Notts 1.78 (+8) 7. Solihull 1.78 (+4) 8. Stockport 1.76 (+8) 9. Wrexham 1.74 (+14) 10 Yeovil 1.65 (+4) The difference between 5th and 9th place is tiny, so we need to maintain our current form as a minimum. There's still a long way to go, and we still have to play a lot of the lower teams, so our fate is still in our own hands. Any team that can put a long unbeaten run together from now will have a good chance of the automatic spot.
  14. I'm currently doing a lot of restoration work of images and, colourising black & white pictures. Just for fun, I thought I would have a go at digitally restoring @Fozzy's display picture. With the addition of my style digital portraits, so it's a mixture of restoring the image and using my graphic tablet to make a digital portrait of Gary Lund. I found the image used on the Notts Twitter page. The amount of lost detail turns the iconic picture, into something quite blurry and very faded. Anywho, here's what I came up with. I added a little more blur to the background after restoring it, as I felt it made it look more natural. Happy to share Gary without my portrait work, its actually very clear.
  15. FIRST (I haven't been for ages). Accrington Stanley 1-0 AFC Wimbedon Charlton Athletic 2-0 Ipswich Town Cheltenham Town 0-1 Cambridge United (Joker) Portsmouth 2-2 Sheffield Wednesday Exeter City 1-0 Northampton Town Leyton Orient 1-2 Swindon Town Newport County 0-1 Sutton United Southend United 0-0 Maidenhead United
  16. I'm not stressed about Notts, we should easily find the form to finish in the play-offs - we'd need a massive downfall of form to fail that. I think with our current form so far, we'd fit comfortably within that, so the players just need to work at it. The benefit of the league being this tight, is the fact it's still wide open. Small clubs with thinner squads might start to struggle soon to keep up their form, whereas we are lucky to be only 4 points behind (obviously a game in hand for some). It's good because it means with a decent run we could reach somewhere closer to our potential, but again, the players need to dig deep and work hard to secure positive results. If we can strengthen up in a few key areas once the Football League transfer window opens up, adding some Non League grit and another proven goal scorer - I think we'll be in for the running. I would be somewhat disappointed if we didn't match other clubs ambitions by seriously going for it, I am not suggesting we throw caution to the wind, but momentum is easily built when you add upon the quality you have. I wouldn't begrudge some smart loans, but if we're aiming for promotion, adapting to life in League Two with another quality striker just seems even more of a must to me.
  17. It's the risk when you move, you could end up bouncing around and, never potentially reaching the same level of success that you started off with. I think it's quite common and explains a little why clubs end up recapturing players. Very rarely does it work out so simple, look at Liam Noble's second spell with us - doomed to fail from the start. Hopefully, Andrade can find his feet at Stevenage.
  18. After a week's break thanks to that strange "cup" competition other teams play in, we've got a busy week for the prediction league coming up. These fixtures all kick off at 7.45pm on TUESDAY, so I'll need your predictions by then, and remember your jokers! Accrington Stanley v AFC Wimbedon Charlton Athletic v Ipswich Town Cheltenham Town v Cambridge United Portsmouth v Sheffield Wednesday Exeter City v Northampton Town Leyton Orient v Swindon Town Newport County v Sutton United Southend United v Maidenhead United
  19. It's going to take a massive effort just to make the playoffs. That applies to every club, not just Notts.
  20. We'll need a striker if Wootten goes in January, don't dismiss it
  21. Any of those teams could win the league, we're shaping up for a proper battle royale. Bit concerned that Wrexham and Stockport have hit form, especially with their blank cheque books. Another striker to give us that something extra, reduce our reliance on Wootton and turn some of the draws into wins could make all the difference - but that striker wouldn't be a guaranteed starter, which limits our options. Gut feeling? Boredom Wood.
  22. Saturday working over at the dark side 3 games on tv 2 Cup games & Women's Cup final
  23. Saturdays during the season without any (proper) football are strange. I had my booster jab yesterday and I've been taking it easy, so it would have been nice to have a match to get obsessed about. Played games. Picked up my guitar (really rusty though).
  24. I've never used it before, but go on, why not. What's this t'interweb for otherwise? I've recently discovered Dark Souls, so I've set my mood accordingly (you die a lot in it).
  25. Yeah, good player, I was bit shocked when he left Lincoln in L1 to join Salford (). Obviously didn't work out there for him there, but he's not making a massive impact at Stevenage at the moment either though. Wonder if he wished he had just stayed at Lincoln now!
