    Usually goals or big decisions of this nature normally never get overturned, only sendings off or bookings. I don't think the decision should stand personally, yet I'm not going to go on about it or cry like the Coventry fans have since their beloved gladiator got punished (quite deservedly if I may add). It's an incident I believe can spark more from our players and, I will be proud of them no matter what. Let's not worry about the stupid decision. As for the referee, yes he should be punished but he will whenever he has to officiate one of our games in the future.

    After last Saturdays Game and the action of Coventry’s Tom Davies he should have been sent off .. but the ref did nothing about it and now the fa have stepped in and issued a ban. I think the ref should be reprimanded as well cause he allowed it to happen and didn’t do his job properly. I think he should be given further training cause if that ref costs notts County there place at Wembley I will be very unhappy any one else.

    Notts County full-back Matt Tootle has spoken out to raise awareness of Mental Health Awareness Week. Last year, the 27-year-old opened up on how his career was almost derailed due to mental health issues and had cognitive therapy to help assist him. Tootle has been widely praised by his Notts teammates, staff and fans, not to mention the wider football world for speaking out. The player has once again sought to raise awareness of mental health and wrote on Twitter: "I’d just like to try and help raise awareness again for how important it is to speak up and not be ashamed of a mental health issue, I continue to believe we are making great progress in making mental health something not to be ashamed of!! "I continue to battle my own struggle day to day but I love my life and everyone in it! Anyone out there who is struggling please speak to someone." Tootle has enjoyed a superb season in the Black and White, winning the Notts County Fans Player of the Year award this term.

    I reckon they should look at the penalty decision and take the goal off Coventry but that ain’t going to happen. That referee should never officiate again, ever.

    I really hope he’s fit too, if he isn’t I don’t think they would let the world know anyway they won’t want to give out team news before the match, it’d give Coventry time to prepare.

    He may have meant it was unbelievable in a negative way, i.e. unbelievably bad.

    The FA/FL should start to punish referees who make severe mistakes, if managers, players and clubs are held account so should officials. I would like to know if the club has made any direct complaints because a referee who missed the kick to Forte, allegedly saw something which nobody else did.

    I'm quite pleased, it's nice to see some big named players dropped but more importantly there seems to be a plan in place to bring through new players - this may not work but I have to respect Southgate for trying.

    Moyes really needs to find a team whereby he can build it without pressure, somewhere that will give him time - I have seen speculation that he may return to Everton but everything has changed since he managed them and it's quite the re-build required. Allardyce shouldn't manage another Premier League team, his career is probably almost certainly over in English football.

    I am to go with @UnitedPie, @super_pie and SP's friend. There's no such plan as such as to what's happening but we all want to go, I think it would be amazing to see and something I haven't done since my grandfather died. He always made sure that me and my brother could attend these games and I just think the whole thing could be special. Who else is planning to go?

    Glad to see he got a 3 match ban in the end eh. I also saw where a Notts fan had sent the video of the foul on Jonnie Forte into the EFL. So lets hope that something is done about that too.

    Hello @Giovanni Armanini, I'd suggest making a trip to the Embankment pub, I'll put you in contact with @Andy Black - he's got a great relationship with Italian Magpies and he's certainly someone I know who would be interested no doubt in meeting you. The stables is also most likely going to have some characters who'd be up for saying hello, so your more than welcome to join me and my group for one also and I'll introduce you to people. Also, just a short walk across from the Embankment pub there's the Navi and official clubs sports bar 'The Broken Wheelbarrow'. I'll message Andy and let you know via PM (Private Message).

    Jorge Grant is hoping to make use of Meadow Lane as a fortress on Friday night in a bid to overcome Coventry City in the second leg of their League Two playoff semi-final. The tie is evenly poised at 1-1, though it should be a goal up to the Magpies were it not for the referee's outrageous decision to award the Sky Blues a late penalty in the first leg. However, Grant remains positive, both of County's performance at the Ricoh Arena and the prospect of being still in the tie ahead of welcoming Coventry to the San Sirrel. “I am happy we are still in the tie,” the attacking midfielder told the Nottingham Post. “We had a game plan and we executed it really well. “It’s now all guns blazing on Friday and what we’ve got to do is put our home record to good use. “I think every team that has come to Meadow Lane has found it really difficult. We’ve built it into a fortress and hopefully that will go in our favour.” Share your thoughts about this news story on Pride of Nottingham by signing up to the website, visiting the forum and joining in the chat with hundreds of fellow Notts County fans.

    It's just nice to see us above teams like Manchester City/United. In all seriousness Alan Hardy has done some great business, he's stored passion quite clearly within the Notts fan base and people will naturally pick things out from time to time but his ability to continue to focus on the right areas deserves the credit. Kevin Nolan may still be learning, yet again he's introduced to us a fighting squad and it might not be pretty at times but it has been effective.

    Kevin Nolan has provided an update on Jonathan Forte, who limped off in Notts County's playoff draw at Coventry City. The striker opened the scoring at the Ricoh Arena, only for the Magpies to be pegged back through a ludicrous penalty. “Forte is okay, he was just tired and had given a lot on a heavy pitch as all the players did,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “They were weary. They had a day off on Sunday and I told them to relax and recuperate. “Then it was back to work on Monday and hopefully getting the game plan ready to beat Coventry. “We’ve got 90 minutes or possibly 120 to play. That’s all that’s separating us from Wembley and I am looking forward to it.” Share your thoughts about this news story on Pride of Nottingham by signing up to the website, visiting the forum and joining in the chat with hundreds of fellow Notts County fans.

    Richard Duffy has praised teammate Jonathan Forte for his "fantastic" form in recent games and was delighted with his goal for Notts County against Coventry City. The 31-year-old, who has found himself frozen out of the first team on numerous occasions this season, opened the scoring at the Ricoh Arena with a deft flick from Dan Jones's cross. Notts were well on their way to victory until Coventry won a ludicrous penalty and drew level late on for a final score on the night of 1-1, but Duffy was eager to pay tribute to his teammate. “Since he’s come back into the team he’s been fantastic,” the defender told the Nottingham Post. “He ran his socks off and ended up with a bit of cramp in the end. “It was a great finish and showed what he is capable of. The manager has got him back playing to his full capacity.” Share your thoughts about this news story on Pride of Nottingham by signing up to the website, visiting the forum and joining in the chat with hundreds of fellow Notts County fans.

    We need to go with the same team, I hope Forte is fit to play, really looking forward to the match but the old cliche is true, it’s only half time, we can’t turn up and think it’s job done, 100% passion, commitment and determination needed on and off the field. COME ON YOU PIES!!

    Notts County were robbed of victory at Coventry City’s Ricoh Arena as Kevin Nolan’s men had to settle for a 1-1 draw in the first leg of their League Two playoff semi-final. The Magpies led through Jonathan Forte’s deft second-half finish and looked on course to record a morale-boosting victory to put them in pole position for Wembley. However, "referee" Gavin Ward incorrectly adjudged Matt Tootle to have felled Tom Bayliss in the area and awarded a penalty to the hosts much to the disbelief of the Notts contingent. Marc McNulty stroked home the spotkick, sending Adam Collin the wrong way, to send the Sky Blues into next Friday’s Meadow Lane showdown on level terms.

    Alan Hardy deserves a huge amount of credit for the turnaround since he took over, I can never understand the fans that criticise him at every opportunity on twitter.

    Alan Hardy has described restoring pride to Notts County's fans as the most satisfying achievement of his tenure at the club. When Hardy took over at Meadow Lane in January 2017, the Magpies were looking odds-on to drop out of the Football League and potentially out of existence. In the 16 months that have followed, not only did Notts survive relegation, but have gone on to finish fifth in the current season, giving them a chance at the playoffs. "I’m often asked what’s been the most satisfying achievement of my 16-month tenure at the club," Hardy wrote in the Nottingham Post ahead of the semi-final first leg at Coventry City. "Quite simply, it’s this: giving back to the fans a club they can truly be proud of once more. "I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say we have collectively delivered fairy tale turnarounds in both our on-field and off-field fortunes. "We now enter our first play-off campaign for 21 years. I shudder to think how many relegation campaigns we’ve had to contend with during that period. "I see real smiles on the faces of every generation of Notts County supporter. Children, parents, and grandparents all united in their enjoyment of supporting our club. "I know many of you felt supporting Notts had become a chore. Not anymore it isn’t. "And wherever this play-off journey takes us over the next two weeks I want us all to enjoy it. "Collectively, I believe we all now feel we are a club back on the up. A club which has a sense of real pride, purpose and enthusiasm." Read Alan Hardy's full column here.
