  1. It was quite an eventful cup tie and one Notts made hard work of. Havant, to their credit, pressed us well and had good energy levels despite not playing for a while. Notts got it down the wings quite a few times in the first half and it was our best opportunity of opening Havant up. It worked for the first goal and we got in numerous times down both flanks but they came to nothing. Chicksen could've had two before half time. His 2nd effort really should have ended in a goal. Poor connection with the ball after taking a touch and then trying to lob the keeper after a good ball from

  6. There is no doubting that we have an excellent defensive record, but at what cost? It's great not to concede because you can't lose, but the flip side is that if you don't score you can't win. Somewhere there is a balance between all out attack and dogged defence, and I think Ardley errs too much on the side of caution. I believe we have genuine attacking options if we give them the ball earlier in a bit more space. When the build up play is so slow, ponderous and predictable it means defenders have plenty of time to get back and mark. I think it has a very negative impact on the number of goa

DKE 4 Denied space in forward positions, hence the lack of crosses Rawlinson 4.5 Coped reasonably against nimble forwards. Lacey 4 Some loose passing Miller 3.5 Defensively stretched. Was it his foul which gave the goal scoring free kick away?

  9. Out of interest, when Sam Slocombe was sent off if we were asked who we would put in goal, am I the only one who would have put Michael Doyle at the very bottom of the list?

  10. Apart from Mr Slocombe, that's how I see it. Every single player performed above and beyond the call of duty, so it seems harsh to single anyone out. This is what we're capable of as a team, so let's do it more often.

  11. That was beyond surreal! Fantastic, Amazing, Brilliant, Superb, Incredible and any other superlatives you can think of with a capital letter. I'm buzzing more than the world's biggest beehive at the moment. I thought the second half would be hard to watch, but it turned out to be a walk in the park. The player ratings thread is redundant tonight, because everyone deserves 10/10*. If I had to pick someone above the others, it would be Neal Ardley with 10.001/10. When we went down to 10 men, our tactics and formation were spot on, and if anything, we looked like the team with an extra man. We ne

  13. Notts County boss Neal Ardley, says footballers ought not be given particular treatment with regards to getting a Covid immunization. The magpies have seen neighbouring rivals Chesterfield go under examination after a portion of their players - thought to be three altogether - got an immunization. Ardley was inquired as to whether he suspected players ought to get their first punches rapidly after Notts saw their season hampered by sessions Covid in the crew. Speaking to BBC Radio Nottingham he said: "I don't think they should, no. You've got to think about the bigger picture.

  14. Notts County has voted on whether the National League season should be null and voided for 2020-21. Clubs within the division have been asked to provide their thoughts on the current situation caused by COVID-19. Uncertainty still surrounds the National league and the future of games being played. Via the official Notts County site a statement read: “On Monday, we received correspondence from the National League detailing resolutions for member clubs to consider the outcome of the 2020-21 season. We have voted for Special Resolution One and against Ordinary Resolutions Two

  20. There's a possibility of fans being at Wembley for the final I'd imagine? That's incentive enough to go and try and win the competition IMO. A trophy would lift all our spirits. I'm in Ireland and won't get a chance to be vaccinated until September I reckon. Notts are an important part of what keeps me going. I'd love to see smiling Notts fans on Wembley Way.

  22. Probably a draw, but we’ll see. Stream purchased and tea cooking. Sorted for another night of football. Lets hope come 10pm tonight we’re celebrating rather than bemoaning lack of chances again. We’re a real mixed bag. Occasionally, it is fantastic, but more often than not, we’re lucky and scrape by imo. I can’t see us going up and and expect us to be needing a new manager come end of season.

  23. It seems that from 17th May fans will be allowed back in football grounds. It will be limited to 10,000 or 25% of stadium capacity, whichever is smaller. That means we could get almost 5,000 for our final home game against Weymouth on May 22nd. Hopefully this is a light at the end of the tunnel.

  24. The votes are in, and while the NLN and NLS have voted to void their season, most NL clubs voted to carry on. So carry on we will, at least for the time being. Dark clouds are looming though. Dover have already taken their ball home with them and declared that they're not going to play any more games. I have the feeling that a clutch of other clubs are waiting to see how the National League deals with them before acting. King's Lynn have only committed to playing until the end of February. The NL have the right to turf Dover out for refusing to play. If they don't, there's no incentive fo

  25. Pilling - 1 - It wasn't just one thing. He's small, Chesterfield identified that and piled the pressure on and he couldn't cope. He has to stop the goal. Kicking awful and taking lots of risks with the ball at his feet, at one point trying (unsuccessfully) to dribble past their striker. Stockport will target him. Kelly-Evans - 4 - Part of a back 4 bullied by Chesterfield in the first half. Rawlinson - 4 - As above. Lacey - 3 - The worst of the back 4. Hoofing to nobody first half. Miller - 3.5 - He's still not a defender. Crap distribution. Doyle - 3 - Too slow. Reeves -

  26. Yeah a really poor first half cost us there. Chesterfield pressed well, just knocking it long content winning thrown ins and corners, but we're easy to pin in cos we get everyone back for them. Goal was poor, needless from Miller in the first place and Pilling probably should’ve saved it… Second half we were better but the general passing, final ball and crossing was still off. Just didn’t test their keeper enough. I’m disappointed we let Chesterfield get away with such a poor second half – A shadow of their first half performance, just time wasting and general s’housery.

  27. That was an awful performance. We were slightly better in the second half but created nothing, and their keeper didn't have a single save to make. I suppose the one consolation is that we only lost by a single goal, because a fair scoreline would have been 0-3.

  28. I didn't see the automatic topic for this game so I have added it. There's a saying you can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig. So I can say nice things about Kings Lynn but the truth is, they are a poor side at this level. They have lost their last 3 games. They have conceded 38 goals in 18 games. That's 24 more goals than Notts have conceded in the same number of games! They took the cover off the pitch and the surface looks well which will suit Notts's style of play. I'm going for 3-0 to Notts.

  29. I think Denton (their 6ft 6” striker) being injured is a good thing for us. On the one hand it made them quite predictable to play as every other ball would be launched in his direction. If you can nullify him you pretty much kill their attack. But he's not easy to deal with and always peeling off to D-KE and just his general threat from set-pieces/crosses always made him a danger. And Asante with 7 goals in 9 is one to watch but I wonder how many of those goals benefited from playing alongside him… I saw an article online that suggests they’ll play 3-5-2. I’ve always thought we tend

  33. If Sutton haven't played Dover, their PPG are 1,947. Torquay beat Dover, so without those three points they would have 1.95. If you take our defeat at Dover out of the equation, we would have exactly 2 points per game and would overtake both Torquay and Sutton. There are some big ifs there though - would promotion be awarded after less than half a season? And why expunge Dover's results if the season is stopped before the weekend anyway? If the season is continued, though, we're very much in the race.

  35. No way, Kelly-Evans may be only 5 feet tall, but he's 10 feet tall when he jumps! When Rodrigues took the green shirt first, I thought it was the best option because he seemed to have the height and agility. What do I know? If he had gone between the sticks we wouldn't have seen that stunning second goal.

  36. I don't want to take anything away from our performance because it really was a special one, however just to make a comment on the opposition: They were terrible. It was snowing and a bit cold, but you just got the feeling they weren't really up for it. A glance at the league table will probably tell you why; despite being tipped as promotion contenders, they are languishing near the bottom but unlikely to go down and probably unlikely to reach the playoffs. Even though it is still early in the season, maybe they consider the season as a write-off? That's the only reason I can fathom as t

  37. Slocombe - 2 - I have a great deal of sympathy for him. It's a poor touch, but he should be told there's a man near. He doubles down on that error and dives in, trying to rectify his mistake. The bottom line is, however, he gave away a penno and got himself sent off after 16 minutes, hence the rating. DKE - 9 - Charlie Slater: "That is the most DKE tackle I've ever seen" Rawlinson - 9 - Epitomised the team effort by sprinting out like a man on speed to the edge of the box to close down an incoming shot. Lacey - 9 - Hero. Barnett - 9 - Slotted in like he's played there the w

  43. Agree with @ARLukomskianalysis . What is frustrating, a similar accusation can be leveled at our first team, that without Cal Roberts, we are reluctant to shoot for goal on free kicks around the edge of the area. Rodrigues does need to be taken aside for additional "shooting practice" coaching. If he had that in the locker, he would be playing in the Championship. I was worried when he stepped up to take a penalty, but he kept a cool head to bury a pressure kick Chicksen did himself no favours despite being in the "shop window" Turner was particularly fortunate not to give away

  47. And so the pitch was waterlogged and we move on to Havant & Waterlooville revisited instead. On the one hand, this will at least give us the chance to test out Barnett at left-back and Miller in a more advanced position when there are no league points at stake. On the other, I would really like to get on with our league programme...
