  1. Liam Walker

    I haven't really been impressed myself, yet he needs time and would hopefully contribute. In the Forest game he seemed very ineffective, even to the point whereby he looked somewhat 'youthish'. I'd never have guessed until you told me @TheFostarr94 that it was him as I saw no signs of experience. Yet one friendly doesn't really say much, I do know that the number 8 has attracted a fair amount of negative feedback from prior friendlies too. Hence why I assumed it was a young player, yet he might just need time. If he can score he would be an asset for us.
  2. Squad numbers?

    I think it's funny, I saw @NewarkPie crop up on my Facebook sidebar having liked this and it's amusing. He's the boss, respect it.
  3. As I've said @liampie, don't overly worry - you've supported PON no end mate. It's nice to see people enjoying what we do, its even better when I see how fans value what we offer. Thanks for your continued support bud!
  4. There's so many different scenarios to which could happen this season, yet I feel the stability offered by KN/AH will firmly allow us to succeed on the pitch. I would like to say mid-table because I do think we require stability before we can truly claim or even gain promotion - however you never know what will happen. I have voted for play-offs, I think this is fairly optimistic but totally realistic at the same time. The squad could gel and achieve something great beyond our expectations, or it might not go quite to plan. It should be an entertaining season mind.

  8. puma shirt

    I can't afford either, yet I want to buy both myself. Jake wants the green goalkeeper shirt, it looks nicer in person and he wants an home shirt too. Think when I can, I'll be kitting all my children out and showing my support because the shirts do look classy. I saw a friend wearing the blue shirt, he was the first to purchase it and I'm looking forward to getting my own. Training gear is nice also.
  9. grant is back in black & white!

    I think the loan means we can look elsewhere to strengthen, Jorge Grant can cover multiple positions and we know he's got goals in him. The signing is very positive, yet after the surprise news yesterday - I expected it. I joked to @Ryan Tokelove after he asked me what the surprise was, despite having some inkling I played it down. So, yeah... It's great to have him back. I said all along he wasn't going to break into Forest's team and I believe they was merely trying to hold onto him (not sell him as people would have us believe). Hope he picks up from where he left off.
  10. The first home game for Notts County of the 2017/18 programme was a pre-season friendly against city rivals and cross-river neighbours Nottingham Forest. As all Trentside derbies go, it was a lively, hotly contested occasion, both on the pitch and in the stands among the two sets of supporters. Ultimately the Championship (just about) side got the win, with Ben Brereton and Apostolios Velios grabbing the goals in the second half for Mark Warburton's Reds. Despite the result not being ideal for the Black and White Army, the performance will have given Kevin Nolan plenty of food for thought as he prepares his charges for the upcoming campaign. Pride of Nottingham was at Meadow Lane to watch the game and to take photos of fans in the stands and elsewhere in the ground. Did you spot our photographer?

  11. Notts County owner Alan Hardy acquires Ilkeston Town

    I think its good news, it means we can feed our youngsters out and just create better ties. I wonder what would happen if they had success and gained promotion though?
  12. Oh, some might not like this but Alan Smith offered us something. He held his own and took a lot of roughing up from Forest players, he remained calm and got on with the game. Aerial threats he assisted, his passing was pretty much perfect and he held the play up very well. I can't see him starting much or being anything more than an impact sub, yet he did okay against Forest and with the limitations I saw in our midfield Alan Smith could play a small role in bridging play.
  13. I think @Elite_pie sums this up very well. Defensively we started off very well, we looked capable of handling Forest and despite them being very direct close to goal we coped. I do feel we ran out of steam and that the changes really cut into the way the game was shaping. I think one solid CB would improve the defence, I though Dan Jones did alright but a lot of fans singled him out as the worst link with me (which I didn't agree with). I felt even Tootle struggled at times but both put in a decent shift, with Jones looking more keen to feature in the play. Midfield we looked very light IMO. Forest had a very small squad but they easily muscled us off the ball and we had nobody who stood up to this. Milsom did when he came on and was very direct himself. Forte linked well with the midfield but apart from Hawkridge we was very flat when chasing the game. Upfront we looked capable. I still think the goalkeeper situation needs handling yet Collin was far better than the trialist keeper.
  14. I felt the game started lively, much more than I thought and it sort of felt more important. Forest played like I suspected, happy to let us have a go but controlled the passing. Going forward you looked useful, though I couldn't help but feel both teams was poor in the final third. Equal good chances was missed, yet as a friendly it was entertaining. The atmosphere wasn't very good, yet the Kop was fairly lively - just wished your fans sang more. Singing about Shola missing three chances seemed very pointless to be fair. Your 33 missed 5 chances, yet there silly things sung by both parties. I did like how Forest fans sang 'Nottingham' when things got a little silly, it was good that it took over in our half. Not sure about the three Forest fans in the Kop, one I was told kept threatening people. Goals came from mistakes, yet you deserved to win but I'm proud of the way Notts played. Think it highlights both teams require additional quality. PS. I hope you enjoyed visiting Meadow Lane.
