So our next round will be on Tuesday 7 December, and I'll post the fixtures the weekend before. See you then!

  3. All in all considering their home form it’s not a bad result, just the loss at the weekend means 1 point from 2 games so we really need a win against Dagenham to just make sure we don’t start to fall away. No-one above us won and Grimsby, Halifax and Bromley all lost so that’s a point gained on them! And it’s great that Altrincham scored two late goals against Chesterfield… Good wins for Wrexham and Stockport, is that the two big money teams slowly on the rise now?

  4. He looks a good addition even if its until late Jan, plenty of time to try to sort out an extension.

  5. Do we have any quiz masters here? or, just anyone who enjoys a good quiz? I know @super_ram would fall within this category, as we both enjoy taking on the pub quiz machines and, used to play various quiz games.

  6. I used to take part in pub quizzes a few years ago, but not anymore. I found that they were becoming a bit too competitive after they were only originally done for fun. We used to win our fair share back in the day, but then you started to see serious teams forming just to win the (not that generous) prizes, so we gave up as it stopped being fun.

  7. Why does Notts have a very loose approach to contract renewals? The business model that has been spoken about regarding recruiting players, that will attract bids would be fundamentally flawed if we allow the likes of Kyle Wootton, Ruben Rodrigues and Matt Palmer to leave on frees. I am now starting to wonder if Cairo Mitchell is a direct replacement for Kyle Wootton. In my opinion, renewals should be handled the moment a player is likely to extend their existing deals. Not only does it keep their value high, but it spreads confidence within the club and gives the fans something to get behind. I don't understand why Notts or Ian Burchnall has this loose approach to handling negotiations. I think its more likely players will leave, surely we want them to feel wanted and secure with longer deals?

  8. @Pie since 89 Difference with Cal Roberts, it was speculated and rumoured that the club had opened discussions to extend his deal. Right around the time he was being linked with clubs due to his contract running out at the end of the year. The manager didn't dismiss it either in press conferences, its almost identical to the time fans wanted to see Alan Judge extend his stay and the club released comments about him enjoying his football, that he was focused on that rather than extending. We can only hope that he extends or the club manages to attract a fair bid before his deal expires.

  9. I feel some players are going to be lost on a free transfer, their price being what they achieved or contributed during their times. It would be nice to maximise the amount of money brought back into the club with selling assets which could be reinvested into the playing squad. I am hoping Kyle Wootton isn't one of those who leaves for a free, it would be nice to get something a bit more than just his goals from helping him.

  10. Part of me wonders just how many teams would be interested in our players, if they expected to pay a fee instead of getting them on a free? This said, enough interest from teams in the same league, it could make a club put in an offer - it might be lower but its something. Notts needs to sort Kyle Wootton's contract. Alongside Ruben Rodrigues and Matty Palmer.

  11. Those in attendance, please make sure you wrap up warm. You know the drill with games like this. For anyone at home watching BT Sports or, listening to Radio Nottingham please do keep the match discussion up-to-date with your thoughts. I am hoping it's going to be a lively game from the Notts perspective. COYP!

  12. We're pretty good at ML at the moment, but I agree Dagenham aren't a team to be underestimated. They seem to go through spells of being either really poor or really good. They started the season really well, then really struggled. However they are capable of smashing a few goals in. Just got to hope the memories and dread from the 3-1 loss here last season is still lingering for them! In terms of us, we've settled back on the 3-5-2 and the team kind of picks itself at the moment. I don't think J'OB will come straight back into first 11 and I can't see Mitchell displacing either Ruben or Wootton. Hopefully we're not becoming too predictable to play at the moment, I'd like to see us get back to creating a bit more (and scoring more!) I've suddenly become a bit superstitious about predicting the score, haven't done it since the three straight losses!

  14. Notts appears to be attracting interest in players and replacing them will prove be the ultimate test for the clubs recruitment policy. What value do you put on the following players? I am also wondering if you feel we can afford to let any of them go and if so, how does Notts replace them without losing momentum? Ruben Rodrigues Kyle Wootton Cal Roberts Richard Brindley Dion Kelly-Evans I have avoided asking about players who have suffered injuries, plus players that have signed this season. I think the 5 mentioned are the most likely to attract interest from clubs willing to spend a fee to sign them.

  15. Right now as Woots contract is up in the summer I don’t think you’d bid, just sign him in the summer. So that’s a current value of like 30k or nowt. I’d put Ruben’s current value at £300,000. Then in the summer you’re probably looking at a drop as he’ll only have a year left. In a weird way we are sacrificing Cal’s natural position so Ruben can play in his, I think he’s having a decent season without really shining. I think he’s value is less than Ruben’s, so £250,000. Brinds, I don’t know, you kind of feel the big fee’s are reserved for the game changing players. Maybe if £50,000 – £75,000. D-KE, again as his contract is up the summer, 10k or just wait and get him on a free. I'm basing my values on the sales of the likes of Tshimanga, Sorba Thomas & Sonny Carey... I don't think anyone else has been sold for a large fee, but equally none of them went for anywhere near £1 million...

  16. Dagenham have lost their last 2 games. They lost to Yeovil and Eastleigh and didn't score a goal in either game. They lost both 1-0. They would have expected to win both of those games. A trip to Meadow Lane isn't exactly the game you'd want after losing your last 2. Nott's home form is quite good. 17 points from 24 so far. Dagenham have picked up 12 from 24 on their travels. It will be a tough game for Notts but I think we will win this one. We are a different team at ML and will be fully tuned in as Dagenham are a side not to be underestimated.

  25. Does saying "end of" mean nobody else can comment? Of course his performance can be defended, and to prove it here are a few match ratings from elsewhere: Chicksen 7 - Flipped a switch 10 mins into 2nd half and had a fantastic 15mins. More of that, please. Chicksen - 8* - Thought he was excellent. Another assist too Chicksen - 8* - Was troubled a couple of times by Rochdale's high press early on but recovered and delivered a sublime cross that led to the equaliser. Was brilliant in the second half. Two of them made him their man of the match, I would have rated him a solid 7 and thought he had a decent game.

  26. I agree with this evaluation of the players, if we want to keep him its got to be the top end. Cal Roberts could go for more than £500k, it all depends on this season, how many goals he gets and if he can stay fit. The club has to market the players value based on how important they're to us. Allowing players to leave moderately cheaply has haunted the club in the past.

  27. Evaluating the players is difficult, because they're only worth what people are willing to spend on them. I do like how Ian Burchnall insists that they're our players, but the club will have in mind what price would be tempting and, I would imagine we'd try to negotiate the best deal possible. This said, my value won't likely be what the club might seek, but it is what I would ask. Replacing them is difficult. There is a chance we might be able to swap players, but obviously, this could come at the risk of devaluing any player. Until a player sold, I won't personally worry about replacing anyone - yet the club clearly has their own eyes on players. Ruben Rodrigues - £500k to £1million Kyle Wootton - £750k plus sell on clauses Cal Roberts - £500k due to his injury issues Richard Brindley - £250k to £300k Dion Kelly-Evans - £20k to £75k It will be interesting to see what others price the players at themselves.

  29. A monorail. An ultrasonic system for blasting pigeon poo off seats. One club hung massive pictures of its legends up around the ground and on the sides of the stands a year or two back - Bournemouth? I wouldn't mind seeing something like that. Take the roof off the JS stand. Make 'em suffer for their three points. Plant some leylandii trees on Meadow Lane to block the view of that ground in West Bridgford from the Kop. I'd love to see standing back, but it's not going to happen at clubs like ours where we only fill 25% of the ground anyway.
