  3. I think any fans calling for Ian Burchnall to go are wasting their time, I agree he isn’t going anywhere soon. It’s easy to look at Ian Burchnall’s stats and just disregard him, but you can’t deny he’s been at some clubs that have been total disasters behind the scenes (we know about that…) the big positive I can take from it is, despite this, a lot of the fans from the clubs he’s worked at have good things to say about him. Next season the biggest and most important thing like it is every season is recruitment. That will ultimately play a huge part of whether IB will be successful o

  4. Slocombe 7 – Good to have him back, love that he comes out and deals with balls into the box to relieve the pressure. Kelly-Evans 4.5 – Not his finest hour, Olaofe rattled him. Daft to lunge in on a yellow. Rawlinson 6 – I don’t know what it is about him and back 3 but the minute we go back to 2 CBs he looks like prime Cannavaro again. Ellis 7 – Won a good load of headers at the back, vital in winning us that pen. Chicksen 6.5 – Now here’s someone who does look decent in a back 3, just really steady but solid performance from him. Miller 6 – Couldn’t lack his effort fi

  8. I think you all deserve an apology from me. Back in 2012, my then girlfriend (now wife) took up crocheting. She found that she enjoyed it, and one day she presented me with a crocheted magpie. It was nearly all black and to be honest looked more like a crow, but it's the thought that counts. It took pride of place on my work desk. We were in the top half of League One at the time and had players like Alan Judge and Lee Hughes in our team. Life was beautiful. My wife got bored with crocheting and never bothered to make a second one for me. One for sorrow. Then bad things started to ha

  9. He should've phrased it better, I don't think it's the worst comment that's been said and I certainly don't think malice was behind it. If it was intended as a joke, it's s bad one. Racially motivated? I don't think so, but the passport part is unacceptable.

  10. Slocombe - 7 - We miss him everytime he's injured. Excellent shot stopping and command of his area. DKE - 4.5 - Love the blood and thunder of DKE, but it's daft to make that challenge in the situation. Rawlinson - 5.5 - First goal isn't his fault as he is isolated against the fastest man on the pitch. Still looks uncomfortable on the right of the back 3. Ellis - 6 - Collectively need to defend their 2nd better. Won his fare share in the air and gets the penno. Chicksen - 6 - His good touch and ability to pass help as part of this back 3. Miller - 6 - He was actually pretty de

  12. I’m sure Neal Ardley will have known and come up against Greg Abbott but I don’t think they ever worked together. I’m sure in an interview I vaguely remember GA saying NA got in touch with him… I always thought the manager was responsible for assembling his own back-room staff – but then again didn’t Moniz have his assistants picked for him? As for Doyle, I’m sure IB will have a shortlist of people but obviously no-one’s immediately available to him so it’s a case who else is there? Doyle and IB will have at least got to know each other a bit over the last month or so. In my opinion,

  13. I don't think the clubs in any sort of chaos, I think people just aren't giving their all for whatever reason. Whatever the former assistant head coach said, it must be bad but I think the matter needs to remain private. The clubs dismissed him, he's acknowledged it was wrong. Move on.

  14. Like I said pre-match, never doubted them! That’s just us in a nutshell though. Arguably the best team in the league and we get a well-deserved win. 1st half was pretty even, a couple of good moves from us but Sutton looked more dangerous - Olaofe pretty much had the beating of D-KE and Rawlo that entire half. And then 2nd half, all us really. Should we consider playing the rest of the season with 10 men? We were on top before the red but then we went on and completely bossed it. Have to say it was incredibly unlucky neither Sam’s or Wootton’s efforts didn’t count… Luckily it didn

  15. First of all, I was Ardley in. I didn't want him to be sacked and whilst I was frustrated with performances, I didn't think he should've gone. He should have had till the end of the season at least. However, performances were becoming a concern. Since the start of 2021, we only played well against Dagenham and Yeovil and the last 20 against Solihull (h). I didn't think we'd win the league but probably would have slotted into 5th or 6th. He wanted us to take risks and gamble. He said it a lot in his pre-match and post match interviews that's what he wanted us to do but the team, more ofte

  22. There's been a lot of calls on social media for his departure, if you've read Twitter at all - there's fans with their handle as BurchnallOut (hash tagging it too). Its a bit more self-destruction if anything. The Reedtz brothers won't sack him this early, I don't think he should either (despite his appointment/start bring very underwhelming). My personal thoughts so far, he's desperate to have a few of his own signings in the squad. He hasn't really influenced the players and performances haven't been great either. Hopefully, the win over Sutton can be a turning point.

  23. Solid result, after the Altrincham game I was a tad worried going away to another team with nothing to play for could be frustrating but we kept a good tempo to the game and that goal before HT was huge. Some pretty big results elsewhere with the play-off chasers; Wrexham, Chesterfield and Dagenham all winning comfortably too. Bromley and Halifax both dropped points though so keep playing like we are and we should make it. Also I completely forgot Petrasso plays for them, I was gutted we never extended his loan when he was with us. Weird that he’s there on loan now but 7 goals in 26

  28. On the other hand, it could give him adequate time to get used to the club in time for the new season - further strengthening his bond. It's not like the role is as hands on as the managers. They just assist, so a more knowledgeable coach at this point could be more beneficial than some think. Usually, temporary decisions like this is down to the club/manager not knowing who to get in. It's not always best to put things off, and those who say he'll have the pre-season to settle probably don't realise it's one of the busiest periods for senior staff.

  29. I like to read a variety of views. There's no need to fall out! I'm disappointed, I was hoping IB and MR would form a good partnership, maybe with a good cop / bad cop type dynamic behind the scenes, and a relatively inexperienced manager definitely needs someone more experienced he can trust to support him. Most of the time, fans have little idea how well an assistant really does this, or how he gets on with the players. That said, the fact that MR said something so indefensible to a player that he was sacked isn't exactly an endorsement of his self-control. The demeanour of coachi

  30. Greg Abbott might have applied for the position himself, does he have any connections with Neal Ardley otherwise? I am not against Michael Doyle coaching, but his main focus should be how he performs on the pitch.

  31. There's a lot on social media, I hope it does work out but it's still a disappointing hiring/start. Fingers crossed Burchnall can get an experienced assistant behind him come the end of the season. Experience could make a difference in speeding up his learning curve.

  36. Yep, I think it was obviously something said at Altrincham rather than anything that's happened since. I wouldn't want to speculate on here, but I think I can guess the nature of the comment and the reason for departure.

  37. Ah it wouldn't be a Notts County season without complete meltdown drama. I'm disappointed because I liked the things Maurice was saying - character, passion, energy.... exactly what is needed in the NL and something the current squad isn't capable of. I'm not going to speculate what was said, obviously it was serious.

  39. That'll be the last time I pay for a stream. You can say what you like about lack of quality, but the thing that has pissed me off most is the complete lack of urgency. You're drawing against Altrincham, you need to win.... and Notts take their time with the throws ins and pass sideways and backwards. They don't give a ****, and neither do I. Stuff the lot of them.

  40. Eastleigh came to ML 2 games ago, hardly broke a sweat, and left with the 3 points. That was one of the poorest performances by Notts this season. There was signs of improvement last Saturday, ruined by the conceding of a late goal against 10 men which cost us 2 points. Eastleigh are level on points with us but we have 2 games in hand. A win for Notts would be a big blow to Eastleigh's playoff hopes. I expect this will be a cagey affair but I have a feeling that Notts will sneak it. 2-1 to Notts for me.

  44. Time for another update methinks! Bayern Munich are marching to another title, but as long as their only serious competition is RB Leipzig I'll grin and bear it. The managerial merry-go-round is in full swing though - Bayern head coach Hans Flick has asked to be released from his contract and will very likely take over the German national team, where he was Jogi Löw's assistant for several years. Mönchengladbach's current manager Marco Rose caused controversy when it was announced that he would be taking over at Dortmund in the summer. In turn, Mönchengladbach seem to have derailed Eintra

  46. I've also come to the conclusion that we're simply not as good as we think we are and have spent a good part of the season riding our luck. The summer's transfer business left us lacking in key areas and was compounded by the sheer bad luck of having important players injured. I was surprised with the timing of the sacking and think NA deserved to have until the end of the season, even though I was losing faith in him. But the manager debate that's raging on social media is getting tiresome - it would have been naive to believe that a new manager would instantly turn us into world beaters

  47. Sorry, but what suggests anything would be different under Ardley? I'd expect them to be more or less exactly the same. I wouldn't have sacked him either at the time, but people now claiming Ardley would have had us top of the league are disingenuous. The performances were pretty much as bad under Ardley and getting worse.... I honestly think this is about par for the squad we have available. Absence of Brindley, McCrory, Doyle, Roberts and Thomas have all cost us, and we can't replace them. Despite having '2 for every position' or in fact more, hardly any of the backups are adequate enou
