  1. Yesterday
  2. Good to hear, it can be hard to move on after football. Good luck to the bloke in the police. I'm sure that every step we take, he'll be watching us.
  3. Yesterday's results: Oxford United 3-0 Doncaster Rovers Rochdale 2-1 Accrington Leyton Orient 3-1 Walsall Swindon 1-1 Plymouth Exeter 1-0 Forest Green Rovers AFC Fylde P-P Sutton United Stockport P-P Dagenham Barnet 2-2 Woking Bit annoying that two of the National League fixtures were postponed, but more annoying for the fans of those clubs... This week's top scorer from the remaining six fixtures is @weymouthPIE, well done! Overall, we have a new leader. Not content with his team getting a minimum of 4 points out of their fixtures with Notts every single season, @Dan now also leads the PON prediction league. Congratulations! The prediction league is in action again on Saturday as there's a full set of Football League fixtures (they aren't involved in the glamorous event that is the FA Cup fourth qualifying round). So the fixtures will be up on Thursday at the latest. See you then!
  4. Good luck to him, it can be a difficult job.
  5. Great pictures @Chris, some cracking ones in the gallery!
  6. It was a good game no doubt about that. Torquay wasn't bad, Notts played good football and we are looking more like league contenders now. If the results keep coming at home, with improvements being made away from it, this season could really start. Great result, the cleansheets right now are massive.
  7. Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo has re-signed for Manchester United as their player manager on a 20-year-deal.
  8. Notts County continued their fine form in the National League with a 2-0 win over Torquay at Meadow Lane. Richard Brindley netted the opener for the Magpies in the eighth minute - his first goal for the club - with a 25-yard strike into the bottom corner after Torquay failed to properly clear a corner. Kristian Dennis doubled County's advantage three minutes into the second half, glancing in a Sean Shields free-kick for his seventh goal of the season and third in as many games. County defender Connell Rawlinson cleared off the line following a scramble which means they have gone 531 minutes without conceding at home, as reported by BBC Sport. The Magpies have now lost just once in nine games as they moved into the playoff places.

  10. Bit of a none story in my opinion. Even if it’s true it’s all irrelevant. The brothers have done us proud.
  11. he looked good, some of the height and pace in torquays side could be worth looking at. just not their finishing.
  12. i also thought they played well, they are the type of team that seems to lift notts themselves. very entertaining game.
  13. positive outcome, some players dont think about their careers after it ends but stories like this are good to see. i am sure plenty of fans will be shouting you pies when he patrols west bridgeford.
  14. 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
  15. you can see the team are heading the right direction, i think ardley has done well with all the nonsense from those who did not learn from the dismissal of nolan. it was great to see the players fired up, they looked like they wanted to score as early as possible. i think dennis should be starting on rotation, he looks fired up but we need to keep him like this. he will get goals and change the outcome, between him, thomas and tyson i think we have the squad to really dig deep.

  17. 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
  18. @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... 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
  19. Last week
  20. It reminds of what Ted Turner did when he purchased Jim Crockett Promotions, then formed WcW. However, instead of forming a good organisation - they do seem to tell stories which seem to stretch the imagination. It would surprise me if there's some truth here, yet I am sceptical of anything more than a slight interest in owning Notts. I doubt there was any serious plans to take the club on. The takeover had no signs of this and I do think if it was true, it would have been known sooner. Not emerging once things are rosy at the club, the Danish brothers are doing wonders. They are running the club well, importantly allowing the staff to do their jobs.
  21. It's a good idea, his career in the police should take off. The world needs good officers who are friendly, do right by people and just have that air of respect. I wish him well.
  22. 'second-best team' spot on. Torquay wasn't bad, defensively, I feel Notts looked stronger, but they gave us a game. They threatened, came close and worked hard to always remain it this way. It all sounds very fair to me.
  23. Things are looking quite promising, the team performs on the same wavelength and I honestly feel that they have finally clicked. Notts looked very lively and up for it at the beginning, for me - all this talk of Tarquay being difficult to beat and the home record being lost due to it might have been something which fuelled them. I want to say Tarquay played well as a team. I disagree with comments about them being 'poor' or 'substandard', I felt they did well, but fell to a brilliant strike by Richard Brindley who has been a quiet underrated performer in my eyes. His opening strike was just lovely! Notts also played as a team, however, they performed at a much higher standard. It was very entertaining, with a lot of quality moments. It just feels like we have a team which will fight, work hard and play together as a unit.
  24. 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.
  25. I didn't really notice any of Torquays players, not because no-one stood out, but because they played as a team. Despite them losing, I felt they did okay.
