  1. Notts County defender Connell Rawlinson has said that he would sacrifice his dream, if it meant the club could play local neighbours Nottingham Forest at Meadow Lane. The 30-year-old centre back grew up supporting Premier League club, Everton and, he has expressed his desire to see the Magpies progress in the historic knockout tournament. Notts will face Rochdale on Sunday in the 1st round of the competition and, will be two victories away from a potential big money tie. "Obviously I'm 30 now, and you do start to think about big moments you can look back on in your career. It'd be lovely if we could get a good run together and get to the third round." said to the Nottingham Post. "We were speaking about it the other day with a couple of the lads, we've got a couple of Geordie lads that obviously want to draw Newcastle. "You've got me who is an Everton fan, there are lads who are United fans, City fans, so it would be nice to obviously get one of the big sides." Rochdale have been made the bookies favourites to progress to the 2nd round of the FA Cup, yet there is belief within the Notts County camp that the gap between the two teams isn't that far between. "But on the flip side of that, it'd be nice to obviously get Forest as well. "That would be huge. I think I would probably give up a tie playing against Everton to play Forest at home. "I just think it'd be a really special occasion where two great footballing teams come together in the city and the whole city would probably come together as a result too. "It would be a great day if we could end up getting through a few rounds and pulling Forest out the hat. "I'll be honest, if you want to compare League Two to the National League, you've only got to look at the teams that have been promoted over the last couple of seasons, and how well they are doing, the top 10 teams that are up around the play-offs would be able to hold their own fairly comfortably in League Two." he added. "We're just going into it as we do every game which is to play our style of football and dictate the pace of the game. "You've also got to remember that you are away from home, and you are playing a league side, so there will be a level of respect there from ourselves. "But I don't see why the lads can't turn up on Sunday and give a good performance."

  2. Anyone else feel this will be a good test to see how we can compete against a League two team? I really want to see Notts progress, a good cup run could bring so much more merit than just the prize money. It can give the squad some excitement and self-belief, which goes along way but for us fans, it gives us a taste of a good day out and most likely against a team whom we haven't faced for a few years. I'd like Notts to be mindful of injuries, whilst giving the odd player a chance. Matt Palmer needs to start, he does so much of the ball work that often gets unnoticed. His vision and ability to spot a pass, could lead to more chances. I'd partner him with Ed Francis, I know Frank Vincent has done well, but I just feel someone like Francis would enjoy more of the ball against a team like Rochdale. Ian Burchnall will have his plans and whatever happens, it's a day out but I do hope for a win.

  3. A nice cup run would be nice for Notts, we haven't enjoyed one for awhile now. Rochdale aren't a difficult team to play against, going to their ground will give them the home comforts but if Notts buckles down and works hard. There's no reason why a victory couldn't end up coming back home to Meadow Lane.

  4. The results: Huddersfield Town 1-0 Millwall Swansea City 3-0 Peterborough United Cambridge United 1-0 AFC Wimbledon Portsmouth 1-0 Bolton Wanderers Barrow 1-2 Rochdale Leyton Orient 5-0 Hartlepool United Bromley 0-0 Halifax Town Eastleigh 1-0 Maidenhead United --- For the first time this season, @ARLukomski has this week's highest score with 8 points! @ARLukomski - 8 @super_ram - 7 @Dripsey3, @gtownjohnno, @magpiejue, @KB1862 - 6 @Dan, @nottsnutter, @4everapie, @DangerousSausage, @barnet11uk, @Chris - 4 @GrannyPie - 3 @jimbob - 2 @Megan_Elizax - 1 --- And on that bombshell, @Dripsey3 has once again overtaken @Dan to take top spot, while @gtownjohnno still lurks ominously in third. Dripsey3 - 109 Dan - 108 gtownjohnno - 97 nottsnutter - 88 super_ram - 85 4everapie - 83 magpiejue - 80 jimbob - 79 DangerousSausage - 75 ARLukomski - 67 barnet11uk - 64 Megan_Elizax - 64 Chris - 58 GrannyPie - 56 KB1862 - 52 liampie - 30 Feral Fox - 29 Joshua - 25 allardyces tash - 19 TheSkipper - 16 Alex - 7 CliftonMagpie - 6 Canadian - 4 --- Because of this new fangled "FA Cup" that we have decided to participate in this season, the prediction league will be taking a week's break. The next fixtures will be on Saturday 13 November, so expect to see the next round posted here the Wednesday before that. In the meantime, I will float around the board offering nuggets of wisdom on important matters, such as: which 80s players had the best moustaches? And did Clive Platt really have a 19-year career in the Football League, or was it all just a fever dream? Take care!

  5. Hello Just wanted to donate some money to the club but did not find any "Membership" on the website. As you know I am Evertonian (and I hope you remember my story and why Notts County) but I really like Notts County. And as Evertonian I am not sure if it's good idea to buy any club merch but Everton's. So what do you think if there are enough Notts supporters outside of Nottinghamshire or UK to provide Official Notts County Membership? Or it is there already and I just can't find it? Thanks

  6. It might show where Notts needs to improve, or it could show that there is the quality within the team to compete against a very average League Two team.

  9. Hartlepool fans have every right to be annoyed with Rodney's departure from the club. If you know, you know.

  10. I dislike Rochdale ever since the season we won the league, their fans whinging about us cheating to win the league. I would love it if we gave a chance to some of the fringe players and, used the in form squad members then smashed them.
