  1. Without bringing the politics into it, made me laugh!!! https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/richard-madeley-interview-gavin-williamson-good-morning-britain-elephant-putin-a8375061.html Shame more interviewers can’t take this line. Might get more answers from politicians from both sides of the aisle.

  2. Notts County have announced the signing of teenage Chester FC midfielder Tom Crawford for an undisclosed fee. The 19-year-old, who celebrated his birthday today, made 17 appearances for the Blues and was deemed one of the bright lights in a poor season which saw the team relegated from the National League. Crawford, who made his England C debut against the Republic of Ireland amateur side on Sunday, was believed to be on the radar of several sides in the Championship and League One but opted for the Magpies. “What a day. It’s a great birthday present to sign at Meadow Lane and I just can’t wait to get started," he told the official Notts site. “I loved every minute of my time at Chester and I was disappointed we went down. But, for me personally, to get into the team and play 17 games and score a goal was a big achievement. “The bigger the crowd, the better for me. I just can’t wait to get out there and play in front of thousands of people. “I thrive off that sort of stuff – I love the atmosphere and want more of it. I’ll be working my socks off between now and pre-season to be fitter than ever before.” 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.

  3. Notts County goalkeeper Ross Fitzsimons and defender Pierce Bird have signed new deals at Meadow Lane. The pair have put pen to paper on extensions that will run until the end of the 2019-20 season. Fitzsimons played 20 games for the Magpies last season, getting an extended run after now-released Adam Collin suffered an injury. However, he lost his place in the team after being sent off in a 2-1 defeat to Crawley Town for lashing out at an opposition player. “At the time [of the Crawley incident] I completely saw red,” Fitzsimons told the official site. “I just didn’t process it in my mind. “I’m not generally like that – everyone has moments when they act before they think, and unfortunately that was mine. “After that, I didn’t really have a case to go into the manager’s office and ask why I wasn’t playing because Adam came back in and was outstanding for us. “The main aim for me now is to come back and try and claim the number-one shirt – and hopefully help the team to top end of the table come the end of next season. “I was over the moon to hear the manager and his staff wanted to keep me on for an extended period.” Bird, meanwhile, joined Notts last summer from non-league Dunkirk and made one appearance for the Magpies in a EFL Trophy defeat to Lincoln City. “From this time last year, a lot of things have changed,” the 19-year-old said. “I’ve been out on loan [to Alfreton and Leek], so I picked up a good amount of gametime, and hopefully now I’ll kick on into pre-season and see where that takes me from there. “I’m looking to be around the first team and in the matchday squads more than last year. It would be a dream come true to break into the first team and get 10-15 games under my belt.” 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.

  4. Sounds like a good prospect to me, and just the kind of player I want to see us signing - young, hungry, on the way up. That's how successful clubs operate. And if it's a sign that we're going to play more football on the floor next season, all the better. Just give the lad time, he's young and learning. Now he just needs to get a haircut.

  7. Alan Hardy has given Notts County goalkeeper Ross Fitzsimons a big vote of confidence, saying he will be "worth a large sum of money" in a few years' time. The 23-year-old has been offered a new contract by the Magpies and, should he sign it, is likely to become Adam Collin's successor after the former number one was released by the club. Fitzsimons did well in deputising for Collin last season but lost his place in January after lashing out at Crawley Town player Mark Connolly to earn a red card and give the opposition a penalty which was converted. “Ross was outstanding in the games he played,” Hardy told the Nottingham Post. “If it wasn’t for the sending off against Crawley when we played them at Meadow Lane, then he would have probably retained his place throughout the rest of the season. “Ross is a fantastic prospect for the future, and we believe in three years’ time, he will be worth a large sum of money. “He is a very talented young goalkeeper.” 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.

  8. As I don't read the S*n all that has passed me by, but how ridiculous are the stories about the cheap flights and Primark? If he'd chartered his own flight they'd be whipping up outrage over that too.

  9. In his interview he said he was looking forward to being number one and battling with Bran so assume he’s been told we’re not looking elsewhere. Good news as he looked a good keeper imo. Keep the transfers to slots that need them!

  10. I hate the Sun with a passion (along with the Daily Mail), when I started reading the story I thought what a load of old rubbish, then I read on and thought to myself if my son had been shot dead perhaps I’d feel different about guns being glamourised, finally I got to the end of the article and read Sterling’s account of why he has the tattoo and I can accept that if it is true, it certainly seems plausible.

  12. The S*n doesn't like the fact that a confident black man is excelling in a profession which is a dream for many and getting paid highly for it as well. They simply have it in for him. It's not just this gun tattoo thing, it's other completely trivial rubbish done just to rile up the gammon brigade and attempt to turn the guy into an object of ridicule.

  13. Total non news story. He has a tattoo on his own body, not for others to judge. People go around idolising crack-head music stars, a footballer gets a gun tattoo and the world loses their collective mind.

  14. Meh, the officials may have some explaining to do one day but I'm not bothered. I just hope we are stronger and better next time we play them so that we can show them how horrible they were. Very poor winners!

  17. As a certain Manchester band sang two decades ago, "Don't Look Back In Anger"... I know, it's incredibly frustrating, but we gotta let it go and just crack on with the 46 games in the pondlife division next season. Coventry aren't going to care if we remain bitter or not, they're in League One now. Who knows, this time next year we'll be in League One and they back in League Two, or maybe not, but either way, it's not our concern now. Need to just suck it up and get on with our own business.

  18. Wes Morgan would be a solid signing but I don't buy into this rumour at all. He won't join Notts.

  20. It's a sign of madness replying to myself but I'll do it anyway! I suffered play-off disappointment part four at the weekend. Waldhof managed to secure a play-off spot for the third season running, this time playing KFC Uerdingen (who once played in the Bundesliga under the name Bayer Uerdingen). Waldhof managed to lose the away leg 1-0 after missing two gilt-edged chances but still had a chance going into the home leg. More than 24,000 were there but to be honest there was a bit less of a buzz in the air compared to the last two seasons. The match proved to be an unforgettable one. In short, Uerdingen won 2-1 and secured promotion (more on that later). But it's the scenes off the pitch that will stay longer in the memory. About the time that Waldhof equalised, a group of Uerdingen followers marched unhindered into a home block accommodating many families and started picking fights (there were loads of riot police about, but they were standing outside the stadium). With about ten minutes to go, with Waldhof on the attack but chasing what looked like a lost cause and with some of their more intellectually challenged supporters feeling they had a point to prove, certain elements among the ultras started throwing bangers and fireworks onto the pitch and didn't stop. It looked like a coordinated action. Eventually the match was abandoned and the visitors awarded a 2-0 win (meaning Waldhof's first play-off goal in six attempts was effectively scratched off). Oh, and all this was on national TV as well. What a sad end to a great season. I'm still much angrier about those scenes and the morons who tried to injure players and stewards than I am about any football match. If you'd asked me on Sunday, I'd have said that I'll never return. However, I've been going for ten years now, I care more than is good for me and I don't want to leave the club to the morons, so I probably will. The club has been very accommodating to the ultras in the past - they can make block bookings for tickets, have a container within the ground and stand in a seated area behind the goal. All that is now over - from next season they're going back to the proper terrace in the corner. The ultras have been a great asset to the club over the years but many people's patience with them has run out. The idiots among them have got to go. Here's the choreography prepared before the match before everything fell to pieces, on the topic of rising from the dead. The zombie appears at about 1.10. It'll be a while before we see anything like this again, sadly. There might be a postscript though - Uerdingen failed to submit the deposit for the license for the third division in time, which according to the rules is grounds for rejection. In that case, the losing team in the play-offs goes up. This story could yet get more bizarre still...
