Who would you be happy to see leave this month.?
So the transfer market is open but we know that Notts are over spending on players we have the biggest team in league two and one of the biggest wage bills for me in order for Neal to sign we have to let players leave either release or sell. 

Im just hoping it not Jamie Turley whom I’m told his contract runs out this month. 

Which players would you be happy to see leave meadow lane in January in order for Neal to bring in fresh players in.?

So the new year hasn’t started great for Notts or us fans a 2-0 loss to Oldham leaves us bottom of league two at the start of the year. 

Notts today suffered a double blow today not only did we not win but with Cambridge being demolished 6-0 by promotion chasing  mk dons and Macclesfield being held to a 1-1 draw by Tranmere Notts miss the chance to close the gap from three points to one. With Yeovil loosing to Cheltenham 4-1 who sit in twenty first another chance lost.

Anyone who enjoys the traditional, historic side of football will have been dismayed at how Notts County, the world's oldest Football League club, has come so close to losing that status in recent years.

The Magpies have found themselves dwelling dangerously close to falling into the non-league over the last few seasons, although their impressive campaign in 2017-18 would have surely meant that there was going to be some form of comeback on the cards.

One thing that isn’t helping Notts however, is their managerial issues.  As of 2016, County have been through a staggering SIX permanent managers, with the most notable of those being ex-Newcastle United player Kevin Nolan, who was appointed player manager in January 2017, before being sacked in August after a poor run of results.

Ex Leeds man Harry Kewell also took charge for a small while, lasting two months before also being shown the door.

It’s become all too common in football as of recent, as we’ve seen with Portsmouth, that teams can fall from grace, and things can turn sour, very very quickly.

It’s easy to see why lower league clubs struggle, they need results but with the relatively minuscule budgets they have to try and succeed with, it’s no surprise that the board see the manager as the reason they are underperforming.

On the other hand it is them paying them their wages and if they aren’t bringing results into the team, then to a certain extent I can understand the frequent chopping and changing that happens within the league.

In all, it is clear to see that teams in a similar possession will struggle until the revenue and other forms of sustainable income increase for those ‘smaller’ teams, and then we may see teams such as County back in the big leagues.

The defence played bloody fantastic against Bury and looked solid. Brisley , Duffy and Bird as a back three often rewarded each other for their work giving each other hand shakes and pats on the back ... little things can really boost a players morale.

Match Report: Notts County much improved in draw with Bury
Some pros and some cons at Meadow Lane this afternoon as Notts County failed to beat Bury, with Jon Stead missing a penalty, but put in a much-improved performance that saw warm applause by the Black & White Army at full time.

Neal Ardley had clearly talked some sense into his ailing players as they were bright from the off, with Rob Milsom going close with heading wide before rifling wide from just outside of the box, while Shaun Brisley also came close.
