    Today I thought i would talk about unsung hero’s one I think is Pete the club shop shirt printer. He has worked for County for over ten years (well since the league did shirt printing) he is friendly approachable and dose a great job and if anything is wrong you can go back and talk to him and he will put it right. Any one else get there shirt done at the club shop and thinks he dose a good job.?

    Pete's one of the most friendliest staff members that I know, he treats people with a lot of respect and this extends to children. I once wasn't going to get Ava her own name and number on her shirt, however Pete did it regardless and this is something which earned a lot of respect from me. Some staff can be a little funny, yet he's just a great guy. It's people like Pete Lawson that makes the club feel like a family. I'll share my unsung hero tomorrow.

    Hi everyone not been on for a while, but this is really bugging me, anyway here goes. Firstly let me say i am really happy with our transfer dealings, and yes there is a lot to be excited about. But my main fear is the CM, where is the ball winner the thug you need at this level, because as good a ball player Vaughan is, he his not a Yates, O'Connor, Harding, Bishop, feel sorry for Hewitt the poor guy can't do it on his own. It's no coincidence last year we was bombing up until January, when Yates left and we never replaced him, maybe because they thought O'Connor would be fit, i am just hoping that young Will Patching might do the job, but we have not seen him play yet? Maybe it's just me.

    Notts County have signed midfielder Christian Oxlade-Chamberlain, the brother of Liverpool and England player Alex, on a two-year deal from Portsmouth. The 20-year-old becomes a Magpies player when his Fratton Park contract expires at the end of this month. Oxlade-Chamberlain will not be fit for the next couple of weeks as he is recovering from a broken leg sustained towards the end of last season. “When I played in the FA Cup here last season, I caught the eye of the manager,” he told the official Notts site. “It just went from there really. “Notts got in touch with my side and Portsmouth didn’t want to offer me another contract, so I was was very happy to sign here. “The manager wants me to push on and challenge the right-back and give him some competition. “It is a good move for me to get out of my comfort zone and try and prove myself somewhere else and promotion is what we should be looking for."

    Has anyone had a close encounter with wildlife? Tell us your story, here’s mine. Picture the scene we were camping on the banks of the Thames, I was fishing in a secluded little bay with reeds and foliage all around, quietly sitting there I suddenly heard a rustling in the undergrowth, to my amazement an otter suddenly appeared at the side of me, I couldn’t believe my eyes, stupidly, instead of sitting perfectly still, I said “hello” and it took one look at me and scooted off back from where it came never to be seen again. I don’t know what I was thinking it was hardly going to engage in conversation and say “hello how are you isn’t it a lovely day”. Thats my story anyone else got one?

    Well Notts does usually play a decent standard, it only seemed like we did when we landed ourselves back in League Two. I'm not concerned about this issue at the moment, it's neither wrong or right for me. I think some of the flack David Vaughan has gotten on social media is a bit unfair by a small majority of fans. He started slow, yet picked up and was for me one of the best performers in the first half. I think he'll do a job fine, each player must attempt to get the ball back - if we are to base anything from the Derby friendly, it would be Enzio Boldewijn isn't a winger (or is somewhat lazy in games where he feels it's perfectly fine to look like a headless chicken). I think the squad just underestimated Derby, one team wanted to win and the other treated it like a day trip.

    When we first moved to our present home we had a family of hedehogs regularly cross our garden at dusk.That was 27 years ago but we didn't have any more hedgehog visits till last year but that one died in our garden.Another hedgehog kept appearing in our garden in the spring but that one also died. Several years ago we had a white rabbit running around the garden but I think that was an escaped pet. We've had frogs in the garden. I was weeding once and went to pick up a stone but it jumped away and almost gave me a heart attack. Squirrels also come into the front and back gardens,running along the fences and climbing the trees. Foxes also give us a visit snooping around looking for food. We're also lucky with the variety of birds visiting our garden-Thrush,Robin,Blue ***,Sparrow,etc but our favourite of course has to be the Magpies No Rams though !

    Come on they had £6 million Bradley Johnson, £1 million+ Richard Keogh, £2.5 million+ David Nugent, European Championship semi finalist Joe Ledley, to name but a few, they were two games away from the premier league last year, and our fans are moaning??!!?? The game was all about being out of possession and next weeks will be to see how much of what they do this week to combat being out of possession will pay off so to speak.

    Don’t forget the lines ”It’s been no bed of roses, no pleasure cruise” After supporting them for more than 50 years I can vouch for that.

    I'm expecting some to say the Munto saga or when Derek Pavis sold certain players. I personally can't really think of anything during my years, I was too young when Derek Pavis owned the club and the Munto saga restored the club back to an healthy level. I know the clubs been having some issues, yet we wouldn't have returned to League One and we would have remained an average League Two team that never really improved. So, I would say the years after I wished could change because I don't think the community has been looked after properly but that's just my opinion. I know plenty of other fans who share my thoughts on this.

    @CliftonMagpie some responses re Capital & Conflict diatribe 1. Centralised Power is the wrong way to go In these days of austerity, local government has suffered from cutting funding from the UK government. We live in a world of globalisation, the EU has stood up to Google, Uber, Facebook ...has the current UK government concerted any action against these companies???? How many EU decisions have gone against the UK goverments position over the years of membership ( remember we have a veto on the most important)...well it's been bugger all 2. Fringe Nations perform better Switzerland and Norway mentioned. You forget Norway pays the EU a direct contribution to its budget but without any say. Norway's fishing and oil and Swiss banking, are significant parts of their economies, which they have chose to protect at a cost. They are both rule takers from the EU, a fact of economic life. UK is in a worse trade position to negotiate its own trade deals...you think India and China will sign trade deals without the easing of UK visa restrictions...India has publicly said that any trade deal needs significant easing on visas... Remember the lie about Turkey joining the EU, just think of amount of Indians and Chinese aiming to come on tourist visas and staying? 3. Regulation should be local EU have legislated on paid holidays, restrictions on the ability to fire / lay off people without paying a settlement, job protection... Think of mortgage providers re evaluating lending risk if you can be dismissed / contract terminated without any back stop in finances to cover looking for another job We are in a global market, companies tend to go with the EU standards as they are the highest and therefore can rely on this to sell into other countries where regulation standards may be lower. e.g, pharmaceuticals 4. The economic disaster that is Southern Europe Nothing to do with the UK...... Italy and Greece both being in the Euro. German tax payer has taken a hit on Greece but Germany has net benefited as EUR was de facto lower than the DEM rate may have been, and German industry had reaped the benefits. Cost to the UK of Euro, absolutely nil 5. Immigation policy is becoming more important 47% of immigration numbers directly controlled by UK government, off the top of my head... 53%of EU immigration.....add to prosperity of UK as well as providing NHS necessary doctors and nurses. EU law allows us, the UK, to deport any EU national after 3 months without a job.... but does UK government do this???? nah.... Incompetence of the highest order then 6. Trade deals are a red herring So how many trade deals will be compromised on the easing of visa restrictions? Are you happy finding in the supermarket chlorinated chicken, GM foods as they were written into US trade deal? 7. Further integration with the EU means economic decline Complete nonsense...Car manufacturing, airbus...both rely on parts across borders...WTO tariffs would seriously harm UK manufacturing industry with companies relocating in the Single Market to avoid cross border tariffs. British manufacturing jobs will go 8. Democratic accountability matters UK appoints through council of ministers.... again, hardly any EU legislation has been against UK interests...and the key ones, UK has a veto on 9. Land Ownership and CAP well land ownership in UK owned by a privileged few... a UK policy that UK government can do on its own...absolutely nothing to do with EU CAP...yes needs reform but UK reliant on EU food imports and agricultural workers. Who is going to pick food post Brexit? Indians, Chinese, Vietnamese? 10. The Common Fisheries Policy UK fishing companies have sold out to takeovers by say Spanish companies and pocketed the cash...They had some control but decided to cash in for themselves. They cant complain Just to say not a very professional paper produced by them . Proving that #StopBrexit is necessary .

    My wife was going out so she went to put her shoes on which were by the back door and a frog jumped out and frightened her to death, the cat had brought it in and it must have hid in the shoe to get away from the cat.
