  1. After all the failed tests, its only about time for Notts to find someone who shows good promise. Ian Burchnall is fine in my eyes, just a sensible manager who's learning his trade here.
  2. Good chances by both teams, Rochdale look like a side more geared to threatening.
  3. It was only a short term loan, that I believe the club extended to cover Connell Rawlinson's return. Now he's back, there's not much point in having him and that must be the underlining reason why the Owls have recalled him.
  4. These look superb lad, you've done very well to release so many. I hope they're a big hit for PON.
  5. It makes no sense and does look to be more about financial gain, but it could be down to budgets? At least partly.
  6. Play no fear football, with smart but less obvious risks and Notts could reap the rewards. On paper, I think Notts looks the more creative outlet.
  7. I don't mind the current plans, I am sure someone has done the research needed.
  8. I do agree that Ben Fox looks to be a very useful player.
  9. I aim pleased Ian Burchnall navigated the defeats, whilst avoiding falling back on Michael Doyle. I believe this opened the door for Frank Vincent, who I would say has taken his chance and positively impacted the team. Ed Francis is a fine player in the making, but he's just a little lightweight at times. Vincent finding his way into the team, along with the return of key players has helped a lot. I think the club can build on this point, with the players looking like they're enjoying playing. Its important I feel to work a little harder in those games we struggle for possession. This way we might grind out some more victories as Notts did against Grimsby.
  10. Well done @Alex, I think the OSA focuses oh the youth side of football. A well worth thing to get behind.
  11. @DangerousSausage I think tomorrow is a good chance to see what Vincent has to offer, we haven't seen much of him and if Notts progresses further in the cup. Ian Burchnall will need to mix things up, know who can come on and make an impact.
  12. The first goal was a very tidy finish by Ruben Rodrigues, he plays at another level when in form.
  13. Been in many of them over the years, The Globe had a lot of potential but is hurt by the limited parking.
  14. @gtownjohnno @Fozzy Perhaps I should've clarified that I meant robust in the his versatile and overall football qualities, rather than strengthen/being strong. As much as I love Brian Stubbs, his ability on the ball was very basic and limited.
  15. Notts are only a little lightweight in a few areas, with the mentioned players back I think Notts will be a lot more stronger. I think defensively we all know that Alex Lacey the passing defender, with Kyle Cameron being the enforcer type player who can a lot more. He reminds me of a more robust Brian Stubbs.
  16. Common thing in football, to attack those that are well liked, give 100% or are in just poor form. A lot of it will people who can't control their emotions.
  17. I am sorry to read you're feeling unwell @GrannyPie, I hope you feel better soon. Take care!
  18. We've had disappointing time recently in the league, but it could be worse. I think we will see what this squad is made of in the next few weeks, Tamworth might be a welcomed distraction as suggested.
  19. I looked at their YouTube channel, its very poor. I don't think Notts fans want to watch the extended highlights, I gave up after our goals.
  20. The last two games have been different, I know the OP started this before this point but it just shows what a single defeat can do. Notts has to start believing that they can win games, that promotion is possible. If nobody believes, tough results will happen.
  21. Does anyone know how Southend have gotten themselves into this situation? I do not know much about how they've been doing in recent years.
  22. The upturn has to happen sooner or later, I just worry that a few more defeats will happen before something gives. Yeovil aren't a side I think anyone should write off. Ian Burchnall needs to make sure we have the right balance in attacking and defensive play, if we lead, he should be mindful of the players switching off and try to shout out commands to experience players to try to weather the storm.
  23. I thought Notts had a lot of luck to take the lead, Halifax created more chances that could've resulted in goals but seemed to struggle to get the clear cut to take them. At 2-0, Notts needs to learn to close the game off and just kill time, without making stupid mistakes. To allow a game to go from 0-2, to 3-2, especially after the result results its just neglectful and naïve. Something has to be put in place in the training to improve this, otherwise the season will soon be over.
  24. On paper, it looks like a young lad who is close to becoming his clubs first team keeper. A loan like this could help him if he impresses, if he don't it's no loss to us really.
  25. After saying the club has been monitoring 4-5 players, he needs to be good. Its a vital area that is needing cover, and although I am not worried about his inexperience I do think when someone comes in they need to do their best.
