  1. Let's pretend that we can judge based on pre-season games and a FA trophy loss to Harrogate Town.... Round 1: Rose v. Reeves - Reeves started very well, but against Harrogate and York today, he was average/poor. Having said that, he could just have the edge on Rose for me at the minute, just... Verdict: Reeves Round 2: Crawford v Sloth - We've hardly seen anything of Sloth. What we did see he was largely OK. Verdict: Unknown. Round 3: Sam/Knowles v Dennis - Sam looks a very worrying signing. Absolute garbage today and hasn't been inspiring any ot

Yesterday's scores: Barnsley 0-1 Luton Town Bristol City 2-1 Coventry City Fleetwood Town 2-1 Burton Albion Northampton Town 2-2 AFC Wimbledon Plymouth Argyle 1-0 Blackpool Bradford City 0-0 Colchester United Cambridge United 3-0 Carlisle United Mansfield Town 0-0 Tranmere Rovers @ARLukomski has started this season as he ended the last and has won this round with 11 points (maybe I'll have to check whether he's part of some dodgy Far Eastern betting syndicate or something). @Dripsey

  3. Due to rising Corona cases, is the current news circulating. The argument is that NL clubs can't survive without crowds. This really is beginning to frustrate me now. What have the authorities been doing since March?! A rise in cases is expected, we have to learn that we must continue with life and live with this virus. If you look at the sheer density of fixtures, a delay of even 2 weeks will cause havoc. A delay of more than a month, you can forget about finishing the season in its present format. I know that BT Sport have some arrangement with rights to broadcasting etc..., but s

  4. At the end of the day, life is more important than football or, any sporting team. However, I am frustrated by the way things are being handled. The biggest issue is the myths and, unknown facts. We still have a very limited knowledge as to the in-depth issue that is COVID-19. Yes, it would appear that we must live with it - as I don't see it being beaten any time soon. Truth be said, earth is fall of morons and, idiots who flaunt advice. These people are the reason why cases are still increasing, along with the government. The streaming option could help, however, many fan

  5. https://www.nottscountyfc.co.uk/news/2020/september/adam-chicksen-signs-100920/ Not a massive surprise, but nice to get it over the line and really gives us depth across that back line: RB: Brindley (Kelly-Evans) CB: Rawlinson (Graham) Lacey (Turner) LB: McCrory (Chicksen) That depth will obviously help with the well publicised Saturday-Tuesday schedule that we are faced with for the majority of this season. Bolton fans (at least on their forum) were surprised to see him released and thought he was a decent player, despite their own tricky season. Bradf

  6. With the announcement of Adam Chicksen, Notts seem to have indicated that we're done in the transfer market. I like this approach, that we are satisfied with our squad even though there is still 3 weeks left until the season begins. Although it is very difficult to gauge some of the new signings, with many being trial by Youtube / judging on 45 minutes again Ilkeston Town, I thought it could be interesting to gather some initial thoughts on the make up of our squad. Goalkeepers: Sam Slocombe - 8 - Consistent keeper that does most things well. Very confident in him behind our backlin

  7. It's nearly six months on from the cancellation of last season and it feels like the world is falling apart. But we do at least have the PON prediction league to keep ourselves busy until the other horsemen of the apocalypse turn up. For the uninitiated, I post a number of fixtures before every matchday, and participants post their predicted scores. They are then awarded 3 points for a correct scoreline or 1 point for a correct result. In addition, each player can name one joker for each round, in which the points will count double. It's just a bit of fun and EVERYONE can take part! It's

I realise that some fans might not be interested, however, it's a fun way to discuss the games when you have an active group of people who enjoy each others company. I would like to rekindled the interest which saw it being very popular under @anonypie - a fan who loved to discuss everything black & white with a loyal following which she had built over the years.

  15. Surely the National League have contingency plans, they can’t have just assumed everything will be fine come the 3rd Oct. They must have known fans coming back was never 100%, especially as the closer to winter we get the likelihood was that the infections would increase – they must have known that. Fans coming back in now is probably off until spring now, what are they going to do? Delay the season until then… (Probably would be able to complete the season as there would only be about 3 teams left). Delaying in the hope of getting fans back doesn’t really solve anything my eyes. Tha

  16. People are quick to pull their kids from schools, but how many of these will attend a football match which will have a considerable amount of jeopardy attached to it? Not forgetting the amount of people who will not follow advice or safety measures. We all want to return to watching football and supporting our club. It must be done in the safest way possible, I do not believe we as a nation are ready for that yet. Tests must continue on sporting events, then assessments can be made and hopefully things will improve from there.

  19. I'm happy with the squad, when was the last time we only had 22 players?! The fact we haven't signed a winger signals to me we'll be seeing other formations more often than the classic 4-4-2. If we plan to play the 4-1-2-1-2 formation like we have done for the start of pre-season we don't actually need wingers. We could easily play 4-3-3 and 3-5-2 as well. I think we'll be changing it up quite a bit this season... With the Reedtz brothers at the helm never say never when it comes to another signing though. If an exceptional player becomes available or is spotted (ala Roberts) I thin

  20. Folks, this is a good friendly competition. Some enjoyable banter due to this over the years, it's always been a popular feature for PON - ever since @weymouthPIEstarted it. I would encourage any lurkers, casual posters to get behind this. What's the worst that can happen? See you will do. I will be sending out alters, you can follow the Prediction League forum for instant updates via e-mail too https://prideofnottingham.co.uk/community/forum/30-prediction-league/ Those I have asked if you want to take part, it would be a shame to miss your involvement with this.

  21. Part of me agrees with the actions, the other half feels this is more penning to the moaners. I can't see it really causing any long term issues, they're young and very good prospects. I think by them just missing the game sends a message, sending them home is a much bigger message but it's by far from the worst thing a professional footballer could've done. I'd also like to mention, that the girls who seem to have publicly made the video available should be put under some scrutiny. I mean, it sounds like they're using the situation to gain some sort of "hype" for themselves. Te

Please keep in mind, once our theme is updated to work on the latest version - I will enable it for you to choose which you would prefer. Members will be able to choose between a normal, and dark version - including toggling between the two.

  27. I'm not worried, I feel that things will iron themselves out when the actual season starts. I feel there's quality, and depth in the team - so not much should be read into the results from the pre-season. Some players can instantly come and, make an impact but at times it does take awhile for things to click. Provided we're fighting to get back into the Football League, we should just be mindful. It must be weird playing behind closed-doors, I am a firm believer that our support from the stands can make a huge difference. This isn't an excuse, as they're professionals but at the same

  28. It's too early to tell - the picture will be clearer after half a dozen games or so. I'm confident Reeves will be an upgrade on Rose after he's had the chance to bed in properly. My areas of concern are out wide, where we've got zero strength in depth and no competition for Enzio, and up front. Dennis and Wilson (however little we saw of him in a Notts shirt) were both proven goalscorers at this level and the one above and could be relied on to chip in with the goals. We've replaced them with two totally unknown quantities. Hopefully one or both of them will prove to be a hit like Wootton

  29. My worry is, is that we've spent the entirety of pre-season learning a new formation that won't get the best out of our best players (for now at the moment). We'll then play 4-4-2/4-3-3 opening day and we may have the risk that the new signings won't have the time to adapt to which one we play, despite the fact they are easier to learn. I'm also worried that we've not replaced Kristian Dennis. He bought a lot more to the team than what people may have thought. His link-up play, his movement, runs in behind and his positioning. Elisha Sam and Jimmy Knowles need time to settle in to h

  31. Chris is right. We could live with COVID 19 if we took a sensible approach, I live in Ireland but we have the same issues as the UK. Masks, social distancing, hygiene etc and open up everything. Of course that won't happen as we have a sizable amount of absolute morons who think they know better than the experts and won't adhere to public health measures. These people will be overwhelming the health services over the next few months. There are too many people on the planet, may as well get rid of those who are too stupid or ignorant to protect themselves.

  32. The issue is that the government look at the wealth of the Premier League and will say football needs to look after its own.... The problem is that there is no real perceived fair redistribution of income from the PL and maybe the top clubs would love to see clubs go the wall further down the leagues, to form a franchise system by stealth. I have no real confidence in the executive of the NL to get to grips to what is needed

This is open to EVERYONE - even (and especially!) newcomers to the board. The more the merrier! And here's how it works: At least two days before every matchday I will post a thread with eight matches to predict, two each from the Championship, League One, League Two and (from October) the Conference. You then reply with your predicted scores. The cut-off time for posting is kick-off. At the end of it all I'll then

  42. My thoughts on the game: - First half was poor. We couldn't break their high press and made numerous mistakes. Pilling's passing was OK but his decision making was off, when Slocombe came on he knew when it was time to pass it round the back 4 and when it wasn't. - Casper Sloth got a bit more involved and was tidy enough, if unspectacular. - Elisha Sam showed a couple of decent touches but on the whole looked way off the pace. -Ruben Rodrigues is a player. It's exciting that him, Roberts and Wootton will be lining up on the same pitch. The key to our season will be keepin

  47. I'm a season ticket holder and I'd respectfully disagree - OK, Großaspach and Jena were more at pub league level, but that's why they went down. Either way, it's a good standard and the National League would certainly be a big step down for Sontheimer, especially when he's got the chance to establish himself in Bundesliga 2. On the other hand, it's so far from leftfield that I did wonder if there was something in it, but as the only way we could probably attract him is by waving big wads of cash at him, it's probably best if we didn't.

  48. I wish Sam Osborne all the very best, he needs and deserves more game time. It’s another knock to aspiring academy players, but only a negative thing for the club. Ozzy is clearly ready and good enough. His deal should’ve been dealt with before it expired too, but it means Notts needs to find suitable replacement now. I hope he secures first team opportunities elsewhere.
