    Man of the Match: Notts County 1-0 Mansfield Town

    I think as fans, we all know Jon Stead struggles to stay on for 90 mins, the manager is slowly understanding that.

    Notts v Mansfield CMS's strike

    It is quite funny as they had no shots on target at all.

    In case you want a laugh...

    Every away side has fans who blames the opposition and makes stuff up to try and justify the loss. The officials don't always help when they miss alot of fouls and card incidents.

    What a plonker.Unfortunately every team has this type of 'fan' They only see the opposition fouls,their team is always victimised by the officials(who are blind) and they turn on their team when they lose.

    craig mackail smith gets my vote, very solid performance and a wonderful goal to top it off.
  9. i would love notts to sign cms, hes the type of player who works well with others and has established a partnership quite well. he would be a good signing even if he was not out of contract, wycombe might accept lower due to his wages and wanting to spend it better for them.

    this is the reason i dont read much to do with opposition teams or fanzines, they just to mardy and create knee jerk reactions. its very deluded and i think hes forgetting how dirty mansfield was. none of them lot would read a fair balanced piece tho would they?

    In case you want a laugh...

    A very balanced and well thought out review of the game from a Stags fan: http://inancienttimes.co.uk/?p=1045 Highlight comes when he criticises our attendance despite being double their average home attendance, and when they took more fans to Notts away than they get at home. Obviously the generations of inbreeding has affected his sight!

    Should Notts try to sign Craig Mackail-Smith permanently?

    If CMS is off contract at the end of the season, he would be worth a look, wages depending. As for Dennis, he can go to the highest bidder.

    Ratings Notts v Mansfield

    Schofield N/A Nothing to do. Someone should have given the poor lad a chair. Rose 8 Assured is the best word to use. Dangerous going forwards Stubbs 9 Didn't hear a peep out of their strikers, won everything that came their way. Barclay 9 As per Stubbs Milsom 7.5 Defensively solid, didn't venture forwards often. O'Brien 8 - So solid, with some excellent balls. Doyle 8.5 - Got under the skin of the Mansfield snowflakes, Grant in particular. Won the battle against Bish, but to be fair to Bish he had no help, whereas Doyle had plenty. Boldewijn 7.5 Not really involved in an attacking sense, but did his defensive duties well. CMS 8.5 Doesn't stop running. Fantastic goal. Stead 7 Did well. Gomis 5 His touch was so bad he set up CMS for a volley. Subs Hemmings 6.5 Close Alessandra 6 Ran Ardley - 10 - Tactics and selection were all correct. Ref - 3 - They should have had 9 men at the end. Bottled it. Mansfield - 0 - how are they 3rd in the league?! Absolutely no fight in any of them, with Bish the exception. Grant smiling and having a laugh with his old mates Stead and Gomis with 10 minutes left was a particular low-light from a Stags perspective. Obviously they've played a lot better than that throughout the season, but I would expect teams playing them will look at their last 2 games, see that they don't like a scrap, and adopt that as the game plan, not genius stuff but will probably work.

    Ratings Notts v Mansfield

    The temptation is to give top marks all round, but this is my best alcohol related attempt at being rational: Schofield 6 – hard to rate him, because he had very little to do. One wayward kick, otherwise fine. Rose 8 – defended well and offered some good forward options. Barclay and Stubbs 8 - I'm rating them as one as they were hard to separate. Mature beyond their years, won almost everything and when they got changed I think they would find Walker and Hamilton in the back pocket of their shorts. Milsom 8 – our left seemed to be the focus of their attacks, but Milsom withstood everything they threw at him. Mackail-Smith 8.5* - We’ve been regularly linked with him in the past and I always hoped we would sign him, but when we eventually did, I thought it might be too late. How wrong was I? He caused them problems throughout, and supplied the superbly controlled finish for the decisive goal. A great addition to the squad. Doyle and O’Brien 8 – again I have to rate them as one because they offer the same - a calm head, a crunching tackle, and an always available option for the simple pass. Again, both of them are brilliant signings. Boldewijn 7 – not everything came off, but he genuinely scares defenders. The opposition tend to double mark him which should free up space for others. Gomis 7 – his willingness to run, chase and offer an outlet for a pass makes him a good forward option. Maybe needs to offer more goal threat, but looks another good addition. Stead 7 – didn’t give them an easy afternoon, came close with a header and did his job. Allessandra 6 – did ok in his short spell. Hemmings 6 – missed a good chance but at least was in the right position. May still have a part to play. A really, really enjoyable afternoon against them at last. Maybe they now know what it feels like when your team just don’t turn up, a feeling we are all too familiar with. Full marks to Neil Ardley who won the mental and tactical battle against Flitcroft hands down. The reality is that we are still 24th, but that can wait until tomorrow.

    Match Discussion: Game 33 - The Stags (H)

    It's pleasing to see the magical work that Neal Ardley has done, he's completely turned things around and has restored the hope. I felt proud watching Notts, it reminded me of a game we would have played in the 90's, just a solid team working hard for each other and playing together. It makes a massive difference but to win a team who's fans took the piss out of our league position. Chanted songs about relegation, well the last laugh is on them because I fail to see how they will secure an automatic position.

    Stunning, very, very, very class finish.

    Match Discussion: Game 30 - The Exiles (H)

    Notts have to play with the same type of attitude and confidence as we have seen in recent weeks, just pass a bit faster because Newport prefer to slow down the games they play so that it favours their style.

    Match Discussion: Game 30 - The Exiles (H)

    Newport should be an easier test than Lincoln and Mansfield, yet we cannot write them off still. Just play as we have, I am confident if this happens a good result will come.

    Man of the Match: Notts County 1-0 Mansfield Town

    CMS takes it for the goal but what a fantastic overall performance by everyone. All of the Bak 4 were brilliant. nice to see Stead taken off, hopefully the manager has realised that he can’t go 90 minutes. He can’t win a header either but that’s another story.

    Ratings Notts v Mansfield

    Fair enough ratings, there isn't much I can add.
  27. No, I would find a way to make use of Kristen Dennis when his loan deal expires. I would be annoyed because he's a good player and he would do much better within a hard working squad, if the chances get created and the players work better with him - he'll score. He's done without much chance and I can't help but feel this is another Jonathan Forte situation. If Notts are to become a good side, we will need to learn how to make assets like Dennis work well. He's a good player, he's a goalscorer. Get pace onto the wings, players with a delivery and just build stronger. I feel the cores very good and the reinforcements should be minor, it would be more offloading in the summer for me.
