  2. For any football fan who's seen their team get relegated, one positive once you've got over the initial shock is to think about all the new grounds you can visit. And with Notts having previously never dropped down to non-league in their 157-year history, all these non-league grounds seemed like an exotic novelty to a Notts fan who travels home and away each week. So having completed half a season in the non-league wilderness, let's take a look back on the highs and lows of a non league away day. Best away days: Without question, I would have to list my favourite away ground that I'v

  4. 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

  5. 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 wh

In this week's episode we discuss the 0-0 draw at the Sixfield stadium against Northampton Town. We talk about the fighting spirit shown by Notts and analysis of the overall performance - along with the confidence in the magpies' camp. In addition we touch upon the injury list, how we foresee those players doing once returning to the squad selection and talk about the likes of Elliott Hewitt, who seems a shadow of the player he w

  8. 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 t

  9. 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?

  10. 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 post

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 app

  13. I have a confession to make. I feel sorry for Forest fans. They so desperately want the Cloughie years to return; to be European Champions again. But the facts of the matter are that those days will never be repeated – so long as money falls from the Sky into the lake of professional football to make the big clubs richer, the small clubs poorer, and the gap filled by the ‘also-ran’ clubs, which currently seems to stretch from the middle of the Premiership into the top half of League One, bigger. But let’s leave the fans from across the Trent to dream their impossible dream an

  14. 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

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.

  16. Usually, at the beginning of the season, managers rotate their squads a fair amount – this was no doubt the same for Neal Ardley. While many fans called for him to settle the squad down, myself included, it is quite natural to switch out players here and there. Sometimes, it’s a little concerning when it’s five or more and when it’s never allowed to settle. Yes, sometimes it’s due to fitness concerns, tactical reasons but you know when there’s too many. For the most of the 2019/20 season, I have felt encouraged and have seen some good performance. There have been woeful one

  17. 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 we

  20. Notts County are said to be interested in the former Newcastle United striker Adam Campbell. The Nottingham Post reported on Friday that the Magpies may be willing to offer the 20-year-old forward a lifeline following his release by the Tyneside club. Campbell was once held in high regard by United but failed to make the grade with the Premier League outfit and was let go by the Magpies at the end of the season. Campbell had a fleeting career at St James’ Park which was limited to just five appearances after the striker was shipped out on loan to Carlisle United, St Mirren, F

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!

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 lif

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.

  42. 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.

Stead’s arrival at Notts sends out a clear message to the rest of the division - that Notts are serious about promotion- with the attacker penning a two-year deal at Meadow Lane following his release by Huddersfield Town. Manager Ricardo Moniz wants his new side to be ruthless in front of goal next season and expects 60 goals from his front line. Moniz has turned his attention to the former England Under 21 international to spearhead the Magpies’
