  1. The best clubs extend their best players contracts the moment they feel clubs might show interest, knowing full well that this would maximize the players valuation or ease them to stay focused. I am hoping Kyle Wootton extends his stay.
  2. I am hoping for a win, but currently I do not expect them. Whoever works the hardest will take the points, possibly a draw with both teams being tied.
  3. Did anyone notice Adam Chicksen moving out the left side, with Connell Rawlinson being central and isolated? I wondered why we did this against Rochdale, but seeing this it seems to give us more men in midfield at times.
  4. It felt like a game against two power house teams, but I will say that in the first half it seemed Rochdale could be on the end of handing out a spanking. The poor distribution, the clearances the keeper gave directly to them and the defensive wobbles. Credit to Notts and Ian Burchnall for coming out stronger in the second half. I think Notts looked a lot more classy all round but nothing takes away the strong team performance by Rochdale.
  5. Good luck to Brennan back at Sheffield Wednesday, I thought he did okay but you would expect a youngster to play better alongside someone experienced.
  6. The club should try to get Neil Warnock down the Lane for a guest appearance, but I do think having some ex players around would be good.
  7. It would be good to progress to the next round, will it happen? I think there's more chance at Meadow Lane.
  8. John Sheridan was intolerable to listen to, I would also point out I like that Ian Burchnall backs his players based on performances and won't make changes just because a player has returned from injury, at the hands of someone who had done better covering.
  9. I am a big fan of Ian Burchnall's post match comments, his well thought out responses and tactical knowledge is a joy. He's not afraid to point things out, in a very constructive and calm manner. He's by far the most enjoyable manager, that I go out of my way to hear what his thoughts are.
  10. I will be at the game, I am in the Pavis Stand. I don't think it will be anywhere near as easy as we'd like, Notts will have to work hard but having seen Solihull defensively they do have weaknesses. Notts and co will have to be mindful to defend bravely for 90 minutes without switching off.

    Anything with the single magpie logo would be big hit.
  12. I do think Patterson is worth keeping, its good to have a backup. I am not sure a different loan would work out better and it avoids the club signing someone who will only be released at the end of the season.
  13. I don't think DKE has played that badly to warrant negative comments, its like how the mainstream papers build someone up in order to tear them down. You get the same in football, it doesn't change.
  14. I like my fruit baked, so mixed berries and apple crumble/pie.
  15. I agree that someone along side Kyle Wootton would help, he can't do it all by himself. If Mitchell can adapt into a more central role, he might do but I am not convinced by him at this stage. I do hope Notts clicks sooner rather than later, as you say it could be to late to really contend for promotion. I don't want to watch Notts fight again for a playoff space, if we end there fine but the club should be chasing 1st to 3rd.
  16. Go with the attention to win, don't send out a weaker team as this could come back into league games. There's nothing as good as winning games back to back, or even starting off a good run in the cup. 3-0 Notts is my prediction, Wootton, Roberts and Cameron.
  17. Nottingham has lost some grand pubs over the years, big plots turned into small apartments and in the city turned into even more shops. It makes no sense at times.
  18. Bless you, I am sending my wishes to @GrannyPie and @super_ram. I hope you both are keeping okay, do let us know how Granny Pie and yourself are doing.
  19. Delighted that Notts got the win, it sounded like it could've been a Barnet type game with how poor Yeovil played. I'm not bothered that the game ended 2-0, I would've been content with just the single goal. The clean sheet is an added bonus, I hope Ian Burchnall can keep Ruben Rodrigues in form because we are a different type of team with him on fire, as is Cal Roberts and co.
  20. Will Ian Burchnall drop the "pretty football", in favour of a more gritty approach to get the job done. Yeovil could be the turning point to get back to winning ways, or they could ruin another weekend. I think both teams are like that, as a neutral it could be a good game.
  21. A win should ease things, if Michael Doyle does start that could inject a bit more fight. It might also make other players realise that their place in the starting lineup is guaranteed.
  22. Tamworth is a good draw, it will be a good game and a welcomed distraction from the league. If Notts loses here, then I would worry.
  23. Typical Notts with feeling like things might be improving, to slump but I do think winning ways will return soon. Its disappointing that we lead 2-0, in a game it sounds like a lot of luck came our way. I don't think unlucky comes into losing, it was just poor.
  24. Losing that amount of money isn't good for any football club, instead of voting in confidence they should be trying to obtain the club themselves.
