  3. To one and all. I want to take the opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! With the early present of 3 points against AFC Halifax, I think we can put football to the back of our minds and focus on the festive season with our families (until Boxing Day at least). It's that time of year where spreading love, togetherness and being thankful for what you have - is the most important thing. I know, I won't be the only fan of Notts County FC that is grateful that we have a football club. Please take a moment to help spread the festive joy, take count of what we have and come back eager to finish what has been started in 2019.

  4. Okay, so after seeing the Sterling video posted by Rio Ferdinand yesterday and reading some of the many comments that accompanied both that and Sterling's subsequent Instagram Statement, i.e. "what bad grammar, etc.," I'd like to talk about something very close to my heart! As a young (black) child growing up at school in the late 50's (with only one other black child who'd decided, anyway, that I was "mixed beef"; "a coconut" ('black on the outside/white on the in') and "different" to her because my mother was white and my Dad, Jamaican and therefore 'not worthy' of her friendship and where the white kids regularly told me I "ate cat food"; or was "a ******"; "a Coon"; "a Monkey" and everything else in the farmyard they could think of... but a 'duck!" I attended job interviews in the old style glass-windowed offices where I was one of two people (the other being a white girl) applying for a job only to hear the Personnel Manager tell his colleague, "black 'uns best for the job, but you know company policy, so I can't offer it her!" Then there was the time I moved to London and was accosted by a (very) drunken Irishman on a Tube late at night, who challenged me to help him win a bet with his mates at the pub by asking, "I'm right aren't I? You lot don't have the same red colour blood as me, do you?" Of course I assured him that 'us lot certainly do not' and he could happily collect his winnings from him mates because he'd got it "straight from the horses mouth!" He left the tube that night, gleeful at his own 'superior knowledge'! Then there was the time where my Training Sergeant at Hendon (Metropolitan Police Training Academy) took me in to his office and told me: "See this badge? Well, I'm very very proud of this...and I have to tell you, I just don't want niggers like you, wearing it!" Or the time we were doing scenarios in the yard at the scene of an accident where he was the driver of a 'crashed vehicle'. As the 'officer in charge' I had to ask, "Did anybody see what happened?", only to be told by him, "this big black bastard with long hair came running out and I couldn't avoid him!" I later ascertained the "big black bastard with long hair" was, in fact,... a toy poodle! Then there was the time I'd taken my (white) P.A., Debbie, to New York (as a Christmas present for all her hard work) and met up with a client: the Chairman of a huge International Company we'd previously done Investigative work for but whom I'd never actually met. In speaking with him in London prior to the trip, it was discovered we were both in N.Y. at the same time and so we arranged to meet there for dinner. At first, he went to kiss (yuck - but it WAS the 80's!) Debbie's hand and she immediately introduced me, to him. He looked visibly shocked! At dinner, he wanted to know how I 'felt' being Debbie's 'boss and did I realise how unusual I was...A black woman running a big company with a white P.A., etc.,?' His tack carried on throughout the Starter and on to the Main as Debbie and I became more and more deflated and uncomfortable by his rudeness and obvious racist, vile comments: so, for the first (and last ever) time in my life, we both went to the loo...and did a runner from the Restaurant...and him! There are many stories I've had in my lifetime similar to this but now, with Sterling's recent and very public 'experience' I want to talk about something that affects EVERY ONE OF US IN THIS FORUM... That is, I'm hearing reports of a Notts fan screaming from the terraces at a recent match - to one of our (black) players - that they're "going to stop his banana supply" and of another screaming that he's "a black cnut!" I'd just like to make it very clear and very plain, that if I see or hear any comments of this nature, whatsoever, I will have not one second of hesitation in calling a Steward or a Police Officer to report what I've heard; nor in making a written Statement direct to the club. I will also be more than willing to attend at Court and give evidence against that person, if necessary. It's 2018. There is absolutely NO PLACE for this anywhere in our society and I truly hope that anyone else who hears anything of this nature from our terraces, will have the cojones to do exactly the same as me. I believe that only when this is totally unacceptable to us ALL and people are ready, willing and able to come forward to report it, will there ever be any change in this totally unacceptable behaviour. I think we're so much 'better' than this at Notts...or (at least, for the benefit of my 2/5 year old grand kids I'm bringing to matches), I certainly, HOPE we are! Thanks for reading. Loz x

  7. I have been keeping an eye out for your scores, after missing out on the playoff final and having watched your recruitment. I felt dead certain that you guys would be pushing for promotion, you have a lot of quality players and seemed to have strengthened wisely. I don't claim to know everything about your club but I have a soft spot for Notts, and It's hard to understand what's going wrong. A win Saturday could make the world of a difference and it could put you looking healthier against teams like Morecambe, Grimsby and Northampton. From the outside it would seem you have altered the balance of your squad quite dramatically and so far things haven't clicked on the pitch. It's important for the players to enjoy playing and conceding goals achieves the complete opposite. I wish you all well, Notts deserves to be playing much higher than League Two for sure. Meadow Lane is a fantastic away day and I am sure many other clubs supporters would wish you the same. Last thing to note, having seen your highlights. I can understand why Palace allowed your keeper to move on and why he never played for Bolton. He looks lost and greatly down on his luck. Sign a keeper and Elliot Ward will sort you out. Good luck Magpie fans, nightOWL.

  8. Notts seemed to be cursed with all the managers that have failed or have been sacked over the years. It's been awhile since the club has had someone who has a plan of action and steadily improved the league position. I think in Kev's second full season he will prove his worth even more. He doesn't seem to accept anything less and I hope he can secure promotion with him, I feel he's the type of manager that will always get the best out of his players. Somewhat like Eddie Howe. What do you think?

  9. Dear members of the Pride of Nottingham community, I’d like to start by thanking you for your continued and unwavering support of the website, the social media and of course of the team that we root for – or have a soft spot for, in the case of those who favour other teams – the mighty Notts County. Yesterday was a groundbreaking day for the website and the forum, which has seen a number of records well and truly smashed. First of all we have had a total of 76 different members logging onto the forum today, which smashes the previous record of 54. Then we’ve seen 330 different posts being sent out so far, which again has completely blitzed the previous highest post amount of 220. Over 25 active posters, which is when people are regularly creating threads and posting responses, have been logged in at any one time, which is a substantial increase from the previous highest of 17. And now for some overall statistics – the amount of posts on PON now stands at a massive 43,000, with 432 members having joined up to the forum. All this is testament to how successful the site is proving with not only Notts supporters, but fans of football, and once again this kind of achievement could not have been possible without each and every one of you. As you all know there are some truly exciting developments coming up with PON so let’s all keep up the good work and take things onwards and upwards! COYP!! Joe Jones

  11. It's not an easy illness to cope or deal with, however if any PON members are reading this and struggle with the condition themselves - please do try to speak to someone about it. Myself and most team members would be only happy to chat to you, I know @Magic magpie will stand with me on this and it might just make a small difference to have someone who can listen at the other end (without judging you). Sometimes it's easier to take a step back, then reflect on your thoughts and at times as I know too well you need someone to support you. I just wanted to make it known that we are approachable, I am and I know how the stigma can effect you. You're never alone, even when those that say this don't mean it - there are genuine people that do. Place your trust in them and hopefully a difference can be reached.

  12. Dear professional footballer, I as a Notts County fan am slightly in awe of your football club and your ability to not be in the bottom five at the end of the season. I understand that, although your season is effectively over, you have your professional pride and will want to end the season on a high note in front of your own fans. However, a meaningless final day win will soon be forgotten. Added to that, such a result would likely relegate us and leave you facing a trip to Crawley next season. Where would you prefer to visit, Nottingham or Crawley? I have put together a helpful guide to help you decide. Nottingham looks like this. And Crawley looks like this: Like a night out? Nottingham has an excellent nightlife, the perfect place for a promotion party next season. And the male-to-female ratio is, shall we say, favourable too. Maybe you will get to play us at Meadow Lane on Good Friday next season. What a pain! But wait, Nottingham isn't far from Skegness, which looks like this: Of course, Crawley isn't far from the coast. It's near Brighton, which looks like this: Of course I have no intention of trying to affect your performance levels. But maybe you should keep these images in mind when you're about to take that penalty kick on Sunday

  13. Hi Folks, I don't like posting messages of this nature, however Anonypie (Elaine) has passed away. She had been diagnosed with a severe form of cancer, which sadly lead to this news. Its with deepest condolences that I inform the members here. Elaine was a blessing to me, always kind and there for support. She made our Match Chat what is today, she will be sadly missed. Rest in Peace Anony and thank you. x PoN sends our regards to Josh, family members and friends.

  14. It makes me feel very sad when I hear silly comments, you would be surprised to learn about some of the discrimination I have faced for being someone with an invisible disability. I have had some Notts fans tell me to kill myself, even threatening that they would do it - all over PON and the fact that I decided to do something positive with my life. Some of these fans are well known to likes of people. Racism, hate, discrimination, sexism and being anti-gay is nonsense. Treat people for who they're and not for other reasons. I think racism isn't something that is tackled very well especially in football, but then I go back to the other similar issues and feel what if we could make that difference. I don't see colour, creed, poor, wealthy - I see people. I might be in a minority but I would never hate on anyone.

  15. Pride of Nottingham's latest PONcast is now available for fans to listen to. @Chris and @samwatto2008 discuss several key topics, including the first away win over Macclesfield Town. They also touch upon the EFL Trophy and if we agree with the competition. In addition we debate Notts' chairman Alan Hardy's use of twitter and the contrast between his work and personal life. Also they share points on the recruitment this summer and much more. What do you think about the discussion? Can Enzio Boldewijn be more defensive minded? Has the recruitment improved at Notts or does it still require further work? Is Harry Kewell utilising all his tools? Have your say on this weeks Pride of Nottingham PONcast.

  18. Hi Folks, I am in the process of updating and tinkering with certain parts of the site, nothing major but it's something which requires being done. This includes overhauling pages and updating them, now within the new season I hope to find help with the league table for example. It's edited manually, so having a couple of members open to assisting me would be appreciated. Can I ask all appointed moderators of our community sections to please keep chipping in with fresh topics, replying and generating interest within the forums that they manage. @tonyhateley, @hissingdwarf, @liampie, @Canadian, @PTID1862, @Blackville, @ivansneck and @super_ram. It's brilliant to see the community spirit of the site, especially with so many fans in the past few recent days adding their thoughts to discussions. It certainly goes along way and it is greatly appreciated. Don't be put off from starting a discussion, blog or creating gallery! We would love to see more of this. Writers Myself and @Joe Jones are seeking regular contributors but also people to write one off pieces, this is a very important part and I would like to ask all our members to please consider this. If you're an inspiring writer, we can help you get noticed and likewise if you are a fan wanting to express your views or concerns, please do get in touch. We as a Fan Site operate on the views shared by ourselves and we would welcome additional input on whatever basis you can provide. Please enquire via media@prideofnottingham.co.uk Video section We have a video section which members can share links to YouTube and various other video streaming sites. I am keen to see the creative community share their own videos but also finds from the sites which they feel will benefit the Pride of Nottingham community. It's very simple to use, you just find a video and then add the share link to the system - provide the details such as the name and then the video will be seen by more fans. Within season this is a busy area of traffic for us, especially with @Cobby and myself work relating to fan inputs. Thanks for your time, please do leave a comment below.

  19. I've just looked at the table and we're fourth, have lost three games out of 16 and have a hard-working, passionate team. I'm excited. There now cannot be any doubt whatsoever that Shaun Derry's black and white army will lead us to the Championship and eventually to world domination and beyond. Someone's got to win promotion, after all. It's about time it was us. Keep this at the top if you agree with the following: WE ARE GOING UP SAY WE ARE GOING UP!

  20. I actually feel it gives me a bit more time just to find myself, I know PON is fine and I don’t press like I once did. The past month has been a weird one, I’m fine but find things a bit difficult. Hence why I have taken time off here, something I have never done before and, off social media. I’m dedicated to vision of representing Notts and, keeping fans together. Honestly, I’m not concerned. This season was about consolidating on the terrible campaign before and our community has grown stronger for that reason. I’m quite happy to take more time to find a balance in my life, PON isn’t about me, it’s about us and I know people will come back when it’s right for them.

  21. Not really new as such. More of a revisit to an old friend! Hope all is well here on PoN and everyone is enjoying, what is now, an excellent resource for Notts fans. I hope to drop in a little more in the future to add my voice to the conversations. Site is looking good and forum seems to be ticking along nicely so praise goes to all of you. The team behind PoN at the moment and the regulars who drop in daily, and also to the not so regulars who still make valuable contributions. Best wishes one and all.

  28. As some of you may have noticed, the PON website has changed in certain areas. This morning I have upgraded the site which includes some very exciting features and, others which are improvements to the look. We are also pleased to announce that the Pride of Nottingham will from now on use its own branding - our name remains the same but instead 'Unofficial Notts County Fan Site', we will be now known as 'Pride of Nottingham (Notts County Community). I feel it's important we focus on the core values which I have tried to deliver to Notts fans and, community suits the feel of our website much better. In addition to the changes, I'm delighted to say that @Magic magpie and @ARLukomski will be joining the Admin team with immediate effect. Also, @CliftonMagpie will be joining our moderation team - along with LiamPie who has offered to join the site support role. These changes come into place with the departure of Joe Jones who is stepping down from the site, hopefully he will hang around but I would like to personally thank him for the years of dedication (even if sometimes I felt like... I won't go there). Many thanks to the members who kindly donated to ensure the upgrade happened, it is much appreciated. Chris,

  29. This might be my only post. I joined just to post this. As a fan the only publicly-owned American Football club, The Green Bay Packers in Wisconsin, who have sold out every match since 1960, average 73,000 attendance per game in a town of just 200,000 and have a wait list for season tickets of 60 years on average, I am so happy to hear of your new owner and hopefully, a fresh start. I am a more recent fan of English football (last 2 years) and I am not the only new football fan here in America. Several of us know of the dilemma of Notts County out here and we have talked about how the "original" football club deserves better. Packers fans like myself are naturally drawn to underdogs from smaller cities like you. So we are all happy to hear of this step in the right direction. Lifetime Green Bay Packers fans can relate to you, for many reasons. There are many of us who are quietly rooting for you. You are not alone. Good luck!!

  36. This is a biggie! As I've just said in a DM to @Chrisprivately... Firstly, the community (us) will go very quiet over the next few months. This is no reflection on Chris or the other mods/admins. This is a good site for the Notts supporters to visit. Football will disappear down a long line of concerns over the next period of time. But, it will come back at some point. Let's hope fans pick up where they left off. Articles etc...would be good if people have the spare time sat at home. Things like memories of Notts in a more detailed post rather than short forum posts. But it is inevitable it will slow right down. Use the board to help each other. Health has two sides. Physical and mental. The latter being just as important over the coming months as people are stuck in their homes, wondering how they'll cope financially, when they'll be ok to resume normal life and see loved ones again. This is where the board can help. Let people know you care. Let them know that conversations can take place here in a safe space. No one should be criticized going forward for airing their views, regardless how contrasting they are. Everyone will go through hardship over the next 12 weeks. No doubt about it. But we need to be there to support each other. Rally call over!

  37. 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.

  38. Four of my images, featured recently in the 'Faces of PON' edited in black & white. Which captures the win the best in your opinion?

In addition we delve into the players who are currently in form, touching upon which of the players we can rely on. With an insight into the league table and a preview at the Northampton Town game. What do you think about the discussion? Have your say on this weeks Pride of Nottingham PONcast.

  41. the defending needs to be improved, the same championship side we scored three times against to go into the lead. a better defensive team would have managed to hold out more than likely. its a good result and not a negative but @Northants Pie has crossed the line tonight. suggest a young fan is on drugs. there is no need to be offensive, you should apologise immediately. you can have your say without being personal or abusive.

  42. I'm struggling to put into words how I feel. There's a lot of disappointment going through my mind, yet I am excited for Donga He - he seemed to have a bright future and I do hope for the best for him. I just feel Notts have been very quick to market the lad, now we know why there was such a rush to field some of the youngsters. He told me and @Magic magpie that he had signed a professional deal and had been told he would fit into the first team plans. @super_pie and his friend Callum really took to him. I hope it's the decision for both parties, I would be annoyed if Wolves wasted his career and stopped his pathway into the first-team.

  43. Kevin Nolan is placing solid foundations and he seems to be quite a perfectionist, not just in the way that the club operates but with the recruitment. All of his signings look capable of doing something, I know people will say that he's signed the likes of Callum Saunders but you will always have a couple who don't work out. Look at Mansfield when they tried to claim a league status, they signed players for the fun of it and released many the following year. Nolan is putting things in place for the club to be successful.

  44. I want to take a moment to commend the efforts made by this young man, I have met him a handful times at both home and away games and he comes across as a lad with a lot of passion for this football club. PON is a very good website, I did struggle at first but the detail is in the amount of time you put in. If you are not prepared to spend more than a few minutes getting a feel for things than you are wasting your time but if you can be patient, you will start to pick it up. Joe has answered various questions I have asked, always promptly and the responses are always helpful. At the end of the day this site is head and shoulders above many I regularly visit and it just needs people to post their thoughts.

  45. The past month really had stumped us, in fact I wasn't sure who to name originally. We have so many fantastic posters, who provide the site with a wide range of points and opinions. I would like to throw a couple of mentions before I name the actual member of the month, yet before I do, I would like to thank you all for contributions. When you visit regularly and comment, it provides a lot for the PON site, it gives us a foundation for the community we have and I cannot encourage it enough. This said, all visits and contributors greatly help - so please don't feel ignored if you visit once every so often. Firstly, @Piety - Brilliant contributor, responses always add a great to deal to the discussions. @pokerpie - Also has made some excellent contributions and it's nice to see him settling in. @wacky and @wroughty are also two members who stand out for their efforts with posting detailed responses. All four of you very much deserve being mentioned and highlighted. Member of the Month - July @nottsfever - I made comments within the latest PONcast (soon to be aired, now there's a plug ) I think nottsfever sums up what makes a difference within the community, always getting involved and posting good responses - joins in discussions and talks to other members but also contributes by starting topics. Not only this, I often see nottsfever commenting on our social pages from time to time and it's just fantastic to see. Please take the time to congratulate this months winner(s) folks! You Pies!!

  46. Just a quick plug for the prediction league ahead of the new season, it all kicks off in three weeks time - and that's just between tony & super_ram It's always good fun, plenty of laughs and gets a fair few new members posting, so do join in. According to @notts-joe, there might even be a prize on offer this season! If you've not played the game before, I will post six fixtures every week - two from each league in the FL, and you simply have to post your score predictions for each game. If you get the score correct you get three points; if you get the right result but not the score you get one point, and obviously if you get the result wrong you get nothing. To make things a little bit more interesting, I'm introducing the "joker" prediction this season. Basically you have to choose one of your predictions as your joker, and if you get it right you get double points on that game So keep an eye out in the week leading up to the game at Stevenage for the firsst round. Generally fixtures will be posted a couple of days before the games, and the scores and table are normally updated on either a Saturday evening or the Sunday, depending on where I've been on the Saturday

  47. Achieving targets really does help the site progress, as does fans leaving their opinions. I am always pleased to see the responses and contributions, so I personally want to thank every once again for their involvement. You Pies!

  48. Cool! Would be a good idea to have the voting once entries have closed though, otherwise those who write later are at a disadvantage. Why did you join prideofnottingham.co.uk? Just wanted a light-hearted chat about Notts and the world again instead of the vitriol you get on a certain other site. Members (with multiple IDs) using blatantly racist language yet being allowed to carry on there was the last straw. I had heard of PON, had a look and liked what I saw. The site is obviously a labour of love, the layout is modern and clear and the community friendly. Even disadvantaged people such as Derby fans are looked after. What is your main highlight of being a member? It's yet to come - winning next season's prediction league How much have you seen PoN grow during your time? The site is clearly still growing. Even in my short time here quite a few people have started contributing. The more the merrier! As a community, what would you say are the three core values to PoN and why? Friendliness, solidarity among Notts fans the world over, and spandex.

  49. Dear Community/Visitors, The majority of regular community members and perhaps visitors will have noticed extra additions to PoN's team, several members have kindly offered to help our site and it only seems right that I welcome them within a topic. @hissingdwarf @PTID1862 and @Canadian All join the ranks as Global Moderators, they have joined @tonyhateley and making a difference within our community. I would like to personally thank them for coming on board and joining in, their help with various things means we have the right balance to continue moving forward. @Northants Pie has joined our media team, as you will know doubt have seen his Youth Team Reports (if you haven't please give them a read). Again I would like to thank Northants especially for taking the time to write up these reports. Please do welcome the new teams members. --------- There's no real major difference but we have a few things in the pipeline, some features will be announced after Christmas which I hope adds to the community spirit with have here on Pride of Nottingham. --------- Lastly, I have updated our logo to make it more fitting within this festive period. It's quite a difficult time for me personally, Christmas always is because of loved one's who are no longer around and I am sure I'm not alone here. It just seems right to try and bring a bit of festive spirit, no it's not major news but I think you will agree it looks nice. You might also notice the flurry of snowflakes which fall when you navigate the site. The snowflakes can be turned off/on - Within the main navigation you will see the button to toggle the setting, some might prefer it to be off but you can choose. As default it comes turned on, please do turn it off if you prefer. Bah humbug to you if you do! Thanks for reading folks, Notts-Joe
