    Steve Chettle joins Notts

    I think it could be a good thing, I'll reserve my judgement. I hope he knows if he doesn't improve things, that he will be blamed just like Dean Yates did. For me it's not about the coaching, it's about how the players apply their role and what they do to keep focused/engaged with the game.

    Magic magpie needs some help

    I think for football casual and healthy things would be better, something that isn't already there. Most fans would pay for something too expensive and most don't carry a lot of cash, I get this all the time as to why the club don't have more wireless payments and a cash machine on site. Blah blah
  3. Jonathan Forte is a yes, Adam Collin could be argued (I think we do currently), Jorge Grant is a big loss so far.

    Daily Chat Thread - Friday 17th August

    My home CCTV messed up overnight and I had to spend several hours flapping around with that and my old laptop which is on it's last legs. Now I am posting on PON, then I will catch up with social media and then onto @ARLukomski thumbnail. No rest for the wicked it seems...

    Roll Call: Notts v Yeovil who's going?

    BRING IT ON!!! We are in the KOP too which is awesome, the club really needs to cater for fans in the hospitality section. Football shouldn't be about wearing smart clothes and there's nothing wrong with trainers either.

    Caption this

    I can confirm Nathan Thomas is one of the smallest people in that mid inner circle. Who knew that the match officials wouldn't? Over to you Geoff.

    RIP Aretha Franklin

    Some good movements, I wish Rob Milsom all the very best. He deserves to get his career back on track.

    Good morning PoN - Thursday 16th August

    Busy day here. I had to go out and fetch general shopping + things for the children's new school year. Two shops later and 4 bus journeys later I feel extremely tired. I'm a bit disappointed to see the site struggling two consecutive days mind, I hope people are just busy.

    match ratings Middlesbrough v Notts County

    I wouldn't worry about the criticism about you being harsh @Piethagoram, I think the ratings are consistent and your own assessment (which some may forget). Despite playing well, we can't just hand out 8's and higher because we scored 3 goals against a Championship club. I feel they're a fair rating and I would encourage others who read this to share what they feel is right.

    I believe you also have to tip a percentage of what your order costs in America, at least a couple of people have told me this. Having worked in hospitality and the catering trade for a considerable number of years, I never tip. In my first job as a waiter I had management take my tips and even gave me warnings for keeping my own tips. In another unnamed restaurant, the general manager refused to allow 'pot washers' have any share of the tips raised and all the tips people got went to all the front staff. The Chefs complained and they ended up taking the majority between them, so the smaller jobs never received anything. In the same environment but working in the hotel staff was allowed to keep the tips, yet you had to declare what it was and anything over £10 had to be rejected otherwise you would get a disciplinary strike. It's very common for tips to end up in other peoples pockets these days, it all depends where but you would be surprised how widely common this thieving behaviour is. @Magic magpie should be able to tell some tales like this himself, as a chef who's spent most of his life working in the trade. I don't tip people, not even if they go beyond their job description. I just thank and praise them to the management/managers. --- PS. I also once gave a £5 tip to an elderly waitress in the Wheelhouse Pub in Wollaton, she made a fuss of Jake on his birthday and fetched candles etc. I asked her before I tipped her if the money would go to her, she said it did but it ended up in a gar for the kitchen staff. I'll never tip for these reasons, I'd rather praise and be kind.

    Neal Bishop

    I always liked Neal Bishop, he used to be great with Jake when he was younger and would always say hello to us. However, nearing the end of his time with Notts he seemed to have changed and I noticed comments on Facebook in which he was arguing with fans. People at the time seemed to be blaming him unfairly and when he wanted to leave, I feel this may have prompted negative comments towards him. There's no need for him here at his age, I'm sure he's a good player but we are better focusing on passing the ball.

    A bus stop near me once had "erection" instead of redirection on it. I'm not joking either, it wasn't fiddled with by kids. It was one of those popup signs for temporary use but someone had muddled the words up.
  18. There's a chap that @ARLukomski and I know called Simon, he looks like he could be related to Shaun Derry (as they look very similar - almost like Derry's older brother). Also a friend of Simon's reminds me of Michael McKean. Also one of the security staff from "The Broken Wheelbarrow" looks like Jonathan Banks. There's a lot of Breaking Bad/Better Call Saul connections.

    Welcome to PON GetSmart

    Haha.. I thought it might have been aimed at Notts to get smart. You've posted some brilliant detailed replies, we all have opinions and for me they're worth sharing. At times members will disagree with each other but it's about valuing the discussion. Different points of view makes things far more interesting than agreeing with each other. I'm glad you've joined in.

    Age range on PoN

    Although neither of my parents acknowledge this, I was actually joking and trying to make @super_ram laugh for once.
