  1. Austin is a weird one as he has played most of his career as a full back. Apparently he has been a revelation as an attacking midfielder so I'm interested to see him step up. I'm starting to get a little nervous about this season, but excited as well. The players we are signing look to be a good age with a lot to prove, it is just the fact that they haven't yet proved it at this level (apart from Baldwin) that makes me a nervous. I'm still waiting for the box to box 6ft+ midfielder that we still need, but we could be in for a heck of a season, or we could be left with a lot of egg on our faces.

  2. Ins: Munakandafa Adebayo-Baldwin Baldwin Bajrami Austin Scott Langstaff Needs that Neal Bishop type to go alongside Palmer? Will Brooks step up to challenge Slocombe?

  3. I think that's what we need to do @Piethagoram. I would keep Vincent as he looked useful last season until Burchnall destroyed his confidence by bringing Brunt in (can't believe he has got a move to the EFL), the rest can leave. I really like Rawlinson as he just doesn't fit with the possession football we're now playing, but I could see a lot of clubs wanting a defender like him. Mitchell and Francis have both been disappointing and JOB is coming to the end of his career, I would also add Taylor to the list of surplus to requirements.

  4. Sounds a shrewd decision to buy both halves of an established strike partnership (remember our failure to bring in Brian Deane along with Tony Agana?). And I doubt he was cheap. Looking forward to seeing what he can do! This looks very much like we're planning to play 352 to me, but these two, Roberts and Rodders won't all fit in the starting eleven.

  5. I do feel for Gateshead’s fans, losing your two top strikers to the same club, their optimism about the season will have taken a big hit. Like Langstaff, Scott is clearly ready to play at this level now. Seems all very similar to when we signed Roberts so I’m confident he’ll cope with the step up.

  6. Fair assessment @Fozzy. Would probably see some more movement of those still under contract : Mitchell?, JOB? Francis? Vincent? Rawlinson?

  7. Wish him all the best, it is a shame that injury stopped him from showing us what he is capable of. He looked to have potential but goes down as a disappointing signing because we never got to see if he was any good or not.

  8. This appointment doesn't fill me with confidence. This is probably spectacularly harsh, but the 25 per cent win rate and the less than impressive references from Swindon fans leave a big question mark in my mind. I'm a bit worried that we've got another manager who thinks we can tiki taka our way out of the National League when it's very obvious we need to be more direct at times. Swindon have had a tough few years, while at Notts he'll inherit a team that isn't too many tweaks short of a title push. I hope Luke Williams can repay the faith the owners have invested in him and show us just why he got the job.

  9. Good luck with Luke. You will get at least some entertaining quotes. "3 draws = a win" comes to mind. Our old Chairman gave him a 5 year deal! Not good financially for STFC when the inevitable quickly happened.

  10. We've had some news on the striker front today. Firstly, Eli Sam has cancelled his contract to pursue opportunities elsewhere. By the sounds of it, we won't be seeing him in England again. I can't say I really blame him given the lack of minutes here. He was really unlucky to get injured just as the goals were flowing this season though. All the best to him, shame we didn't quite get the best out of him. https://www.nottscountyfc.co.uk/news/2022/june/elisha-sam-departs-010622/ And the new arrival is Macauley Langstaff from Gateshead, who scored 32 goals last season. Sounds a similar type of player to Kristian Dennis from what I've heard. It's good to see us signing promising players on their way up, just hope he's more Cal Roberts than Sean Canham. https://www.nottscountyfc.co.uk/news/2022/june/macaulay-langstaff-signs-010622/

  11. I'm hearing a lot about what a great coach he is, but the question he has to answer is does he have the tactical nous needed to win games in this division. And does he have a plan B? I'm not getting overly excited about this, and will wait to see how we go in pre season.

  12. I liked Andy Smith a lot, he was unfortunate with the penalty, half falling over so he's trying to balance himself with his arm out. Ben Fox one of the CM's also impressed me.

  13. Our luck might start improving now as it's not been the best seven years whilst he has been covering us. In all fairness, I used to enjoy his articles, but haven't really read anything in the Post for a couple of years now. The website is horrendous to negotiate in order to find any Notts news, constant popups, and I can't remember the last time I actually bought an Evening Post from a newsagents. Will wait to see if we get a full time replacement for him, or whether we will be reduced to snippets.
