  1. I cannot see the club gambling and allowing Forte to leave unless they have players signed or lined up. If he does leave it would need for two strikers to come in, so one could be young and fast. The other a more natural goalscorer. I have to add it seems pointless to let a player who can score already leave the club. Not playing him seems madness! Alan Smith and Lewis Alessandra have got the nod ahead of him. You just can't make sense of it, but then again we have wingers and bypass them!
  2. Mr Shola Ameobi deserves it in my honest opinion. He worked his socks off and got the goal to draw us the game due to his efforts.
  3. Match Discussion: Game 21 - The Hatters (A)

    Difficult game but a solid point for Notts. I felt impressed with how we approached the game and handled Luton, first half we could have been leading easily.
  4. I think we will be fine, others deserve it more than Nolan this month.
  5. How much has the Notts defence improved?

    A lot of the same issues still exist. Notts are just better in possession now and players are up for it. In certain games the defence is awful and I think we can be lucky that we have a few unsung heroes at the back. At the start of the season many complained that we still had the same issues but choose to forget due to the league position.
  6. Well said @Chris, far from the worst possible draw.
  7. strong, hardworking or skillful

    It has to be hard working! If a team fails to take this attitude towards playing, it does not matter if they are skillful or strong they will just end up being taken for mugs as we have seen previously.
  8. It just seems like standard business to me.
  9. Kevin Nolan: 'Referee at Yeovil Town missed blatant handball'

    Soft penalty really Liam. Yet Nolan shouldn't moan about poor decisions, he made enough of his own during the game and he really does need to sort the performance out to a consistent level.
  10. Should Forte be in our plans?

    Nolan seems to have something in his mind which he does not quite like but its hard to see what. I felt he played well during the home games he started, he did lag in some of the away games but Notts did not perform very well. I am not sure its personal between Nolan and Forte, if it is then something needs to be done for the betterment of the club.
  11. how optimistic are you right now?

    The good thing right now is the fact when Notts do play badly, we do manage to pick up points. I am optimistic about the team Nolan has assembled and their ability to respond when it matters. There's still a long way to go but the season has been positive so far.
  12. Hello

    Welcome to the community.
  13. Fulham 1-5 Notts County, 20 November 1976

    One of the best games during the incredible run Notts had back then. I recall the game well.
  14. Notts fought hard and played some lovely football in the second half. I would be happy with the performance but I would hope we learn to kill teams off quicker. The 3rd goal yesterday was key but without it we may have struggled.
  15. Lewis Thompson: Comparing Adam Collin and Ross Fitzsimons

    I thought Fitzsimons looked awkward in the air yesterday. Yes he caught the ball confidently the majority of times he was required, but at stages he seemed out of position or risked things which made me nervous. I both keepers have done well this season, I just think we should stick with one or the other because I dislike seeing keepers change for the sake of it. Fitzsimons distribution is excellent, so I would go with him.
