    Former Notts County defender Thierry Audel has completed his UEFA B License in football coaching. The French born player currently plays for Welling United in the National League South whilst under tutorship of Chris Fairclough, who played for Notts County during the 1998/99 season. He continues to work towards further establishing his new business venture Audelsports. It started in Leicester and has progressed and now extended to Nottingham. He told PON exclusively; "I have been my own client during all those years of Football and I also had the chance to learn from high standard professionals. “I decided that it was time to share, but with my own philosophy.” Thierry also said, "I have big plans for Audelsports. It is growing very fast. I dedicate time to my Personal Training activity in Nottingham and Leicester and will keep extending to try and satisfy all the needs. “Fitness is very important for many reasons. Self-confidence, Stress, Mood, Weight, Energy but MOST importantly... Your Health. Notts County has been very available in sorting me out a classroom to help me complete my UEFA B License Presentation." When asked about the current season for the magpies, he replied “I keep checking Notts County Fc results wishing them the very best. “I always had a great relationship with the club. As I am training people in Beeston, Nottingham from time to time. I like to stop by to say Hi. Actually, I brought my son to the home game against Cambridge United a few weeks ago.” Notts County currently sits rock bottom of the League Two table, 5 points adrift from safety and 2 points behind Macclesfield Town.

    So yesterday at the game @Chris kept asking me if I wanted a prawn sandwich and then asked @super_pie. Me and @super_pie looked at each other and the penny dropped ..maybe the Morecambe badge is a pawn/shrimp. sandwich anyone ? A silly joke but made us laugh things like that that make match days funny and enjoyable

    As many of you will know I have somewhat split loyalties. Having moved to Germany 12 years ago, I acquired a second team (SV Waldhof Mannheim) - a former Bundesliga team that has fallen, Notts-style, on hard times. After a decade in the Bundesliga in the 80s, they were relegated in 1990 and were relegated again and stripped of their licence by the German FA in 2003. They were thus relegated to the fourth level - the state-level Oberliga Baden-Württemberg - for the first ever time. This wasn't like League Two or even the Conference, this was village clubs playing in front of small three-figure crowds. And worse, Waldhof simply couldn't get out of it. Protests, boycotts and home crowds of 600 followed. The club looked finished. After qualifying for the Regionalliga in 2008 (which was now also the fourth level thanks to a reorganisation), Waldhof again ran into financial problems and were again sent packing to the Oberliga (now the FIFTH level) in 2010. The club had to start from scratch - discussions were held about dissolving the first team and instead restarting at the sixth level, or giving up the 26,000-capacity Carl-Benz Stadion and moving back to their old and dilapidated Alsenweg ground. In the end they stayed put and a new manager had to put together a completely new squad on what was called a "micro budget". The goal was consolidation. Instead, the new team thrillingly chased down the leaders, overtook them in April and sealed promotion in front of a crowd of over 18,000 (a record for a fifth division match). Today, after three failed attempts at promotion in the play-offs (there was no automatic promotion in the Regionalliga until this season), Waldhof sit eight points clear at the top of the Regionalliga after beating their nearest rivals Saarbrücken at home in front of a crowd of more than 14,000. I was there, it was belting and it inspired me. There is still a lot of football to be playing, but Waldhof are now in a fantastic position. If they finally gain promotion to the third division, the club will be resurgent and the city will be fully behind them. The sky is the limit. So what can Notts learn from this? Even if relegation happens, there is a way back and the future can be brighter. Waldhof have plumbed depths they've never known before not once but twice in the last 15 years, but there's a way back. Just look at these pictures, think about where they've been and remind yourself that could be Notts in a year or two, whatever happens this season. The fight for our future doesn't end in May - it's only just starting. Let's make it a good one.

    We're waiting confirmation but it looks like Chris has gall stones.We had a phone call from @cheeky~k8 this afternoon telling us Chris had gone to the docs with severe stomach pains.She dropped @Ellie_Pie10 and Ava off at our house and joined up with Chris at the docs.We also had to look out for @super_pie who had his phone turned off.Not long after we were told Chris had been sent to QMC. where he had several tests.Much later @cheeky~k8 rang to tell us Chris was being transferred to The City Hospital and that @Magic magpie had come to our aid and was on his way round to our house to take our grandkids home so they could sleep in their own beds.So thank you very much Mark for your help.Updates will follow.

    When Newport completed the great escape and stayed up in 2016-17: At this stage they had, PLD 35, W6, D11, L18 and had 29 points. The same record and number of points we have at the moment after 35 games They were also on their 3rd manager of the season and had rebuilt the squad heavily in January like us Birmingham at this stage last season (2017-18) PLD 35, W8, D6, L21. They had spent heavily in the summer (like us) and it failed. The squad's fitness had been an issue all season (like ours). They were also onto their 3rd manager, they had struggled to score goals and their goal difference was in the -30's (like ours). Both managed to stay up Newport's run in their last 11 games: WLDLWWWLWLW - Newport finished on 48 points. 19 points from last 11 games. Birmingham's run in their last 11 games: LLWWWDLLWLW - Birmingham finished on 46 points. 16 points from last 11 games

Didnt help Milsom defensively Stead 4 Last legs of once a good player Gomis 3 He can go back now... touch is hopeless, not going to make it despite his pace Subs Hemmings 3 Scored the penalty but touch and effort not there Vaughan 3 Short time on but didnt run back when lost possession...

    From the Nottingham Post: A Bulgarian multi-millionaire has been linked with a takeover of Notts County, as owner Alan Hardy continues his search to find a buyer for the club. According to reports, Kiril Domuschiev is believed to have shown an interest in the Magpies as he looks to make a foray into English football. He already owns Bulgarian side Ludogrets, having taken them from being an amateur club to the Champions League thanks to his financial power. It is reported Domuschiev is now looking to take on a similar project and has been directed to the Magpies, the world’s oldest professional Football League club.

    I think AH had done a lot of hyping up the keepers we have, it happened with Joe Searson and when his chance came to play. The club went out and signed Ross Fitzsimons. Too much hope was pinned on Fitzsimons this season. I would rather see two young keepers, than a waste in a backup like Blanislav Woopsie.

    Scholfield 6 - kicking not the best, did make one good save from a deflected shot. Tootle 6 - still not the Tootle of last season, but did ok. Stubbs 7 - didn't do much wrong, looks a good player in the making. Duffy 7* - I know Duffy has his critics, but his reading of the game makes him our best option in central defence. Milson 7 - looked solid, he has made the left back position his own. Enzio 5.5 - can't fault him for effort, but we struggled to get him involved in the game and he missed by far our best chance. Rose 6 - did a decent job in stopping them build attacks. Alles 4.5 - had the first touch of an elephant and still can't beat a man. Vaughan 5 - I though passing was supposed to be his plus point? He struggled to do even the simple stuff. Doyle 6 - always made himself available for a pass, but his set pieces were poor. Hemmings 6.5 - did as much as could be expected as he was often left isolated up front. Mackail-Smith 5 - I was hoping he would be brought on, but not his best day. Patching 6.5 - some good moments in the short time he was on. A dull game which neither side did enough to win. I suppose we are a point closer to Yeovil, but we have to be far more creative if we want to stay up. The most disappointing thing is that in the last 20 minutes we struggled to get out of our own half.

    I might be allowed home today, it depends on my blood count being normal. The doctor that spoke to me this morning wants to bring me back in a weeks time for further observation. Sometime today I should be getting my kidneys scanned due to concerns about my blood. I most likely have or had a kidney infection too but they seem concerned about the bleeding. I feel fine and I’m not overly worried.

    Notts County delivered yet another poor result as they drew 0-0 with Port Vale on Saturday, which keeps the Magpies five points adrift of safety. The game was dour and unispiring, with the 22nd-placed Valiants putting in a stronger performance than the beleaguered hosts at Meadow Lane. Vale pressed their game on the hosts early on in the game and dominated proceedings, with Tom Pope seeing a close-range header ruled out for offside and Tom Conlon hit the crossbar from 25 yards. In the end, the spoils were shared, just one point in the kind of fixture that Notts should be winning if they honestly want to survive relegation. Pride of Nottingham vlogger ARLukomski was at Meadow Lane to endure yet another deflating weekend, here is an account of his afternoon.

    We are in with a chance of surviving, but any longer, we'll be incredibly lucky rather than deserving of it (if it happens). The players need to focus, work hard in training and apply themselves properly on the pitch. I note that Michael Doyle and Jim O'Brien are starting to fall victims of negativity and mindless comments. Perhaps the pressure is starting to drag them down? Maybe they aren't enough to drag the real culprits kicking or screaming to their standards? It's quite possible that we have just hit a dry patch due to the pressure of winning 2 games and then losing the following games thereafter. There's always hope if you believe, and provided there are points available - we should try our best to shake off the disappointment. I lost count of the amount of times I was asked by fans yesterday if I felt the club was down or not, as I said then the 2 wins being 'good' restored my belief in this squad. The 2 defeats shook me back down to earth. Yesterday's draw, although not being the best possible outcome, it does show that the team can keep a clean sheet. I would opt to have three centre backs and three centre midfielders, along with pacey wing backs. This would suite players like Robert Milsom and Mitch Rose better. It would allow Ben Barclay, Sam Stubbs to have a chance of forming a partnership with someone that has experience. Give Elliott Ward ago, if rumours of him being frozen out due to bonuses - hopefully the takeover can sort this. In midfield, it would allow David Vaughan to come in and pick out the passes that Notts struggled to find against a weakened side like Port Vale. Their midfield, although good on the ball, wasn't structured and at the back they left plenty of room to exploit. However, they pushed up due to the hoofing Notts did and nobody attempted to hold the ball up. I believe that's called one-dimensional attacking. Jim O'Brien and Michael Doyle are fine, however, this expectation that they're the soul saviour of Notts County Football Club is becoming a joke. I firmly believe Notts would be more attacking minded with a tactical re-think.

    It was painful to watch, but at least we didn't lose. Schofield made some excellent saves and deserves praise for them. However, his decision-making, especially with crosses, is dodgy and the opposition are clearly targeting that by putting in lots of crosses. His wild goose chase towards the corner flag in particular could easily have cost us a goal. I'm not sure I agree that Tom Pope was well marshalled either, as we gifted him two free headers inside the six-yard box. That he didn't bury them both was more down to luck than judgement. I agree with @Super_Danny_Allsopp that Doyle shouldn't be taking set pieces. They seem to hang in the air for ages, making them predictable and easy to defend against. Which fits in with the rest of our attacking efforts too. We're not overly blessed with heading ability anyway, so why did we insist on banging the ball over the top? CMS's workrate is excellent but he hardly ever had the ball at his feet, the poor bloke. And Gomis' touch continues to let him down. His pace can get him into good positions, but he has neither the touch nor the composure to make it count. I can't comment on his finishing as he's invariably lost the ball before he can shoot, which speaks volumes really. I'm hoping that once he gets a goal from somewhere he'll settle down, but I can't see it right now.

    People need to stop giving up and having such knee jerk reaction to outcomes hardly disappointing, this would be a good start. Yesterday's draw wasn't a bad result, it was a lacklustre performance though.

Stead 4 Too slow and cumbersome. Gomis 0 Not a footballer. Subs Hemmings 4 Crap Alessandra 5 MEH Ardley 1 - What were the tactics? Vale play hoofball to Tom Pope so we'll play hoof ball to Gomis?
