  1. Seems that Hearts are interested in Tshimanga. Took a look at both Chesterfield's and Heart's forums, seems both sets of fans are heavily invested into the rose-tinted glasses industry: - Hearts seem to think they'll bag him for peanuts when reality is that Chessie paid 300k for him so aren't going to be letting him go for at least double that. - Chessie seem to think that despite flirting with the NLN the past couple of seasons, they are now a bigger club than Hearts and offer a better standard than the SPL. The reality is though, if Hearts stump up enough money (admittedly I have no idea about their financial situation), the SPL is a big enough pull for anyone currently playing in the conference, especially given Hearts are probably the 3rd/4th biggest club in Scotland. People will point at clubs like Ross County with the smaller attendances, but where would you rather play, there or against the King's Lynns and Dovers of the world?

  4. I also follow John Campbell @Super_Danny_Allsopp and find his videos to be excellent viewing, no mass hysteria, he just tries to deal with the data available. I think that David Schneider doesn't realise that the most densely populated part of Russia is in Europe . Obviously didn't get a very good grade in Geography.

  5. To try and get a judge on the pandemic and how it evolves it is necessary to filter out the extremes. The extreme to one-side is the anti-vaccine, 'covid doesn't exist', government conspiracy types. On the other side is the place for the hysterical; lockdown forever, social distancing forever, gross over-estimation and exaggeration of hospitalisation/death forecasts. I follow John Campbell on Youtube. He looks at the situation in the UK and globally, presenting stats and offering his opinion. He is quite level-headed and practical about things: https://www.youtube.com/c/Campbellteaching

  6. Cal Roberts is a class footballer and exceptional winger. I think he benefits more from playing wide in a 4-3-3 than he does playing more centrally in our usual 3-5-2. He's not a wing-back either. Also have to remember that he was out for a full season. It takes a bit of time to come back from that and start reaching the standards before the injury. The signs have been there and he looks to be starting to head back to those levels, which is fantastic news for Notts and terrible news for NL defences.

  7. https://www.nottinghampost.com/sport/football/football-news/notts-county-roberts-chesterfield-transfer-6447480 Wow, didn't think I'd see them in for him. Looks like we won't sell to a national league club anyway. I don't have an issue if Cal moves on and up at some point but the idea of strengthening a promotion rival just seems completely counter-intuitive. And I just find the whole financial system at Chesterfield very odd, why do you have to crowdfund frost covers but then are able to go and bid for someone like Roberts (who will cost a hell of a lot more than 15k!)

  8. Do you think he can push on from here now and get himself in the first 11 on a regular basis? This is his second season with us and until recently he was the forgotten man. Then he got a chance and made an impact in the Wrexham game and could’ve/should’ve scored but against Eastleigh he got his goals. I really liked his interview afterwards as well, that can only help in keeping the fans on his side with his ‘working hard’ and ‘not giving up’ attitude. l think he can help us out in the second half of the season. On the social media training videos he’s always showing some bit of great skill using his size to his advantage and finally we’ve seen more of it on the pitch where it counts. I think he’s got a point to prove and if IB can’t get the best out him I don’t know who can!

  9. I've walked up there so many times, yet I wouldn't have guessed it in a million years going by the first pictures. Insane how streets can change, and sadly not usually for the better.

  10. I don’t think Tshimanga will go anywhere he’s too important for them, Chesterfield have spent big and gambled on getting promoted this season. If by the end of the season they haven’t been promoted I can see him moving on.

  11. Zonal marking for Eastleigh's goal? The ball passed Slocombe too easily?

  12. I was thinking Hughes v Bradford? http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/eng_div_3/8186374.stm Turns out it was a bit slower than I remember it. Probably had a few beers beforehand though mind.

  13. It looks to be like it's a combination of zonal and man-marking. The player covering near post, I think it's Sam, is flat-footed and waiting for the ball to come to him rather than attacking it. Think Slocombe doesn't see it through the mass of bodies until it's too late. Good play for our first goal; Vincent, Mitchell and Sam. All Sam for that second though.

  14. All seems very dodgy to say the least. Purely from a morale point of view - they seemed to have financially profited from the pandemic yet also took tax-payer money which helped fund lavish player signings. Wouldn't sit right with me.

  15. It's these paragraphs from the Reedtz brothers' statement, the sources telling Notts Live he's not for sale to any National League club at any price and his mum saying on Facebook that he's never asked to leave the club, that make me hopeful we won't sell. We surely wouldn't be that stupid to strengthen a fellow promotion rival. Not just these reasons, but his best mate is at the club too.

  16. What makes me laugh, is how, all of a sudden, Chesterfield fans believe they can afford to buy the league. Suddenly this season, they've become more anxious than the majority of Hollywood fans that support little old Wrexham. Obviously, every club has fans like this, but they seem to have a special number who appropriately forgotten how dire they have been in previous seasons. If they believe they can afford any of our players, it's beyond me because no team at this level should sell their players to rivals unless they're not competing for promotion or safety. I wished someone would look into how they're managing to handle their recruitment, considering they've gone from debt to incredibly skint, requiring handouts and furlong longing staff/players to offering silly money for players as a bid to get out the league. I've read things that speculate Kabongo Tshimanga joined Chesterfield for £300k, any club that could afford this generally would be a solid signing, but I just think there's something underhanded going on. Why are they so desperate to sell a player who has been a major part in turning their fortunes around? It just doesn't make sense.

  17. What a weird thing bid to make and to make it public. Then again, their manager is up there with Stephen Cleeve on the weird/potential serial killer stakes, so what can you expect. Chesterfield are supporter funded I believe and apart from a big win on some insurance claims, some 'strategic' (borderline fraud) furloughing and probably a nice windfall from their FA Cup run, we're not talking about a team with millions to splash in the long term. Seems very much that's its **** or bust this season. I've taken a look at their fans forum and whilst I thought some wrexham fans were a bit deluded on their 'analysis' of our recent game, there must be some strong herb growing game going on over there in Chesterfield.
