    Work Monday to Friday as usual. Nice to see Notts in on Tuesday. Midweek football helps break up the week. Got to see @meg_walshx on Wednesday and Thursday which was good. Friday night I played football and got myself a goal. Yesterday saw Notts trounce Eastleigh. Today I spent more time with @meg_walshx. Went into town together. Spent most of the evening on Fifa

    School as always. We have to use hand soap between classes and, virtually everytime you go somewhere. I will be glad when this virus has gone, people panic too much. It's a good measure but surely if we have to do this, it would be best closing school for a bit?

    So football is grinding to a halt. The Premier League and EFL are postponed. After initially insisting on playing behind closed doors, the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 are postponed until further notice and Hannover's entire squad is in quarantine. The National League (irresponsibly IMO) is attempting to continue, but will surely bite the bullet sooner rather than later - Harrogate already can't continue. What happens now? Surely Euro 2020 will have to be cancelled or put back a year, which I suppose would give us the opportunity to complete our fixtures in the summer, if we're over the worst by then. The alternative is very much on the table though - just cancelling the season altogether, which begs the question of what we do with promotion and relegation, or even if we bother with it at all. What happens if the situation drags on until August or later - on the one hand it feels farcical to promote teams when there are ten matches still to play, but on the other, can we really just render the season null and void? Another suggestion I've heard in Germany is promoting the teams in the automatic promotion places, but not doing relegation. That might be more acceptable to clubs, but would result in a 26-team League One. I feel gutted about the whole thing to be honest, but all things pass, even this. The question is, what happens next?

    McDonnell 6 - One dodgy moment in the first half but overall an afternoon on the sunbed Brindley 7 - Won the ball back and was comfortable Rawlinson 7 - Solid as per usual Lacey 7 - Same as Rawlo Bagan 7 - Pressed forward well and never gave Eastleigh any time with the ball Roberts 8 - Something else this guy. A sprinkle of quality Rose 8 - Pressed and challenged well. Got forward and joined the attack too. Assist for the third. Grabbed hold of the game second half Doyle 8 - Passing was tremendous, especially finding Dennis and Wootton. Like Rose, grabbed a hold of it 2nd half Boldewijn 6 - Didn't really do much in spells of the game. Was calm Dennis 9 - A class act. Just runs and runs and scores. Wootton 9 - Gave the Eastleigh centre-back pairing a torrid time and his aerial presence and ball control were brilliant. Two goals to top off a great day Thomas 6 - Closed down the defenders and put himself about Crawford 6 - Got back to cover and showed some neat ball control Wilson - N/A

    Again, nothing has happened again this week, just been at work and doing extra hours. Spent Wednesday and Thursday with @ARLukomski, had a takeaway and just watched tv while enjoying each others company. Booked my 3rd theory test in on Friday, hopefully on the 8th April I will pass it, so I can crack on with my practical test, hopefully I will pass for July. Half way through DECHOX, haven't caved in yet, not long left and then I can have as many bounty's as I like. How had your week been?

    Get the content out that we can. Continue with the player in focus series and up the content for the season in focus. Got to stick together even if there's not much we can do about the situations on the pitch.

    Like @liampie I too use the Clifton P&R... Cheaper too when using the "Arena" ticket option, than the usual tram prices. Certainly, extension to Racecourse P&R would make sense...with onward connection to Gedling could use the old railway line to make it cheaper to build. One could argue the case to put a tram along the abandoned line of the Nottingham Suburban Railway https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nottingham_Suburban_Railway to help towards regeneration of areas that really need it , like St Anns

    It would be easier to close schools and do all the work online.

    McDonnell 6 - He was fine, not much to say. Brindley 6 - Good going forward, lacked a bit at the back. Rawlinson 7 - Solid performance where he never looked like he would slip up, fantastic CB. Lacey 7.5 - He's superb at handling pressure and works so well with Rawlinson. Bagan 7 - He looks the real deal already, would love to see Notts try to sign him. Great player! Roberts 9 - Fantastic performance, he ran all game and caused a lot of problems. It was nice to see him being clapped off. Rose 6 - I thought he just looked better than average, it was one of his best games but he could have shot at times and made poor choices instead. Doyle 7 - Did everything right, pulled the strings and lead with passion. Boldewijn 6 - Better than recent weeks, I'm happy to this. Dennis 10 - Anyone notice that Dennis now tries to get forward and has supplied some great crosses/passes to open up play? He's at his best. Wootton 10 - I agree he looked for fouls a little too easily, his foot work was a joy and his movement made him really hard to mark. He did exceptionally well. Thomas 6 - Moved well but really didn't see much. Crawford 7 - Just neat and played like someone who was sending a message to say select me. Used his time well. Wilson - N/A - Not enough time to rate him

    I still live at home still and we can go through a 6 pint bottle of milk in 2 days, always at the shop buying another bottle. I understand pasta because it is versatile but I'm shocked about milk.

    I have managed to spend some time gardening and sorting out some of the issues the recent storm caused, nothing that bad but its good to be able to get out into the garden. I had a pub meal on Thursday with my family. Of course Notts at the weekend.

    What a crazy week has just flown by! It's been madness at my workplace, the brunt of shoppers panic buying from Morrisons in Clifton. You can't stock or re-shelve stuff because it goes that fast. It's not just toilet roll! People are buying up pasta??? and milk??? I mean how many bottles can you use before the best before expires? I went to Notts yesterday, enjoyed a lively Kop. It was a fantastic result, went straight home after it finished. No messing around.

    The National League will play it by whatever is advised, I can see things coming to a temporary stand still but I think there will be a lot of pressure to ensure the season continues. If they do go down the path of streaming games behind closed doors, then fine. Lower league clubs risk losing a lot of money, season ticket holders need to keep this in mind. Do you lose the season completely or just your match day ticket? It will give people a better chance to save in my mind with the potential of two trips to London.

    McDonnell 6 - he did well enough, he was not tested enough but made a few good saves. Brindley 7 - looked like he was at his best, very eager to get forward. Rawlinson 8 - armband performance from him, he lead the back and organised players. Lacey 7.5 - just always a calm player to have alongside someone experienced. Bagan 8 - outstanding performance a few bad crosses but he did very well overall. Roberts 9 - looked great in both halfs, he really gets notts moving in the right way. a joy to watch! Rose 6 - looked better than he has done but still not the same player as last season. Doyle 8 - just did all the right things at the right time, he did well. Boldewijn 7 - when he was in the game he took eastleigh on and drawn fouls, passed well too. Dennis 10 - my man of the match, he worked very hard and did very well. looked like someone who wanted to get on the scoresheet from the word go. Wootton 8 - played well but hes becoming the jon stead of notts, he goes down too easily and when its a foul i cant see it being given for this reason. he worked his socks off and deserved his goals. Thomas 6 - he did well nothing that stood out but he came on just to give rest and break down the play. Crawford 7 - did very well, defended well and put himself about. Wilson - n/a

    it does look like things will be paused but i hope the season is not cancelled. think the panic has reached new heights, if clubs and league systems had just moved games to be played behind closed doors and said that players/staff need to limit contact i think it would not be such an issue.

    McDonnell 6 - hard to mark high or low because he only had one routine save to make. Brindley 6.5 - had a fair game but on current form DKE looks the best option at right back. Rawlinson 7 - another good, solid performance. Lacey 7- see above. Bagan 6.5 - not a lot between him and McCrory at left back, a good example of the squad depth we have. Roberts 7.5 - sometimes takes the wrong option and not everything worked today, but what a player! I love it that his first instinct is always to go forward, there's a real sense of expectation whenever he gets the ball. Doyle 7.5 - showed what he offers today, always involved and a calm head. He did nothing spectacular, but I can see why Ardley will always see him as one of the first names on the teamsheet. Rose 6 - I maybe being a bit generous here with a 6, but he did show his usual commitment and provided a very intelligent pass for Wootton's second. The downside is that he was indecisive on the ball and his passing was poor Boldewijn 6.5 - I don't get why people call him lazy, because his best work was done defensively, pity he left his shooting boots at home. Wootton 7.5 - much better, although he seemed to have done something to upset the ref who gave him nothing all afternoon. Two good finishes and led the line to good effect. Dennis 8* - how did we manage to send a player of his ability out on loan when we were so cr@p last season? A constant threat throughout, and another good goal. Crawford 7 - again looked the part when he came on. Surely he offers more than Rose at home. Thomas 6 - not much time to impress but good to see him make the effort to get a starting place. Wilson 6 - see above. Apart from the obvious huge negative hanging over us all, we can only take positives from events on the pitch. It was one of those rare occasions at Notts - an enjoyable and comprehensive win with no nervy moments. At last we are looking like a pretty formidable football team. It may count for nothing in the grand scheme of things, but at least we went out on a high.

    I think this weekend will be the last game for Notts for a while… 5 more National League games have already been postponed! As bad is it is money wise for all the clubs, I just can’t see how the league can continue. I’ve heard the ideas of finishing the season as it is if the leagues are unable to resume. I think in some cases, Liverpool will clearly win the league, Man City and Leicester will finish 2nd and 3rd. Bolton and Southend look all but relegated in League 1. As for all the other spots in all the others leagues it’s still all up for grabs! Every season there’s always something to play for on the last day, a promotion spot or relegation. If you put it to the clubs to vote for, then surely all those in the relegation zone and chasing a play-off spot will vote for a void season. And those only just outside the relegation zone and teams in the play-off/promotion zones will vote for the season to finish. Ironically the teams with nothing to play for will then be the one’s deciding the fate! It’s just so bizarre. I guess they can postpone the Euro’s and push next season’s start day back, I know people’s health comes first and it’s not a complaint but I really hope we can get some sort of end to the season.
