  1. The old saying back to basics comes to mind. Set the team up from the back to front, Patterson needs better protection and cover. The defending needs to be for 90 minutes. I can see it being a another disappointing game I hate to say it.
  2. There does appear to be something with Ruben Rodrugues , I agree with that. It could be mostly a lack of form, but he does seem to pant a lot and avoid running at least in the last two home games. His attacking play has slowed down to almost walking with a slight burst of pace. Whatever is going on, Ian Burchnall eyes and staff will need to identify it.
  3. The quality is there, but its down to form and focus if Notts can push for the title or settle for playoffs. We are good enough to at least to expect a playoff finish, something terribly wrong would have to happen for this to be failed to achieve. Like a string of defeats at a crucial point, but at the same time a winning streak could really turn the season around.
  4. Done deal, it makes sense to bring in someone so that Brooks can gain more experience himself.
  5. Josh Kelly played excellently in the first 35 minutes, all their threats came through him and he played a direct game. Other Maidenhead players came into, but I thought he wasn't half bad. I would gamble on him if I was a manager looking to find big.
  6. What are your thoughts and feelings on this situation @super_ram? Its awful for any club but Derby should be able to turn the corner, if the right admin people are appointed it should ease a sale when it happens.
  7. All are very nice photographs, the ones of Meadow Lane and Wollaton Park are my favourites.
  8. Good to have the cover in quick and early, means he can get to training. Good move Notts.
  9. He needs to cut it out, otherwise the next time it might be red. Roberts is a big part of our creativity, we need him fit and not suspended.
  10. Putting aside the display against Maidenhead, Notts have been good so far and part of this is down to having the squad settled. I wouldn't change anything, other than what has been forced. Ciaran Brennan will come in for Kyle Cameron who I think will be a big loss. I would still give Cal Roberts the start, but I do think Notts needs to rely less on his ability to make things happen at times. Allowing him some freedom could help, especially with Ruben Rodrigues not quite playing to his standard.
  11. The win is the main thing, Wealdstone made it difficult for Notts but at 3-1 it never looked likely to end any other way than a Notts win.
  12. I am hoping Kyle Wootton gets a little more support, he could do a lot more if another striker was thrown up in support. A little too much reliance on Cal Roberts and Ruben Rodrigues for my liking, yes they can win games but strikers are what finish them.
  13. A man of my age shouldn't really care, but I do feel it is unfair to other talented players in this league to allow Wrexham to be added and no other clubs. What makes them so special? The takeover does not make them special in my eyes.
  14. Isn't that two footed, as well? Looks horrible.
  15. No complaints about the draw, both sides did well and Notts could've lost the game without the amount of threats Wrexham thrown our way. Its probably a good thing this game was played at this stage, it could be a difficult game next time.
  16. Things can only get better, well it hasn't but Notts are part of the foundation of English football.
  17. Notts are in good form at the moment, but I wouldn't want to underestimate Weymouth. They are the home team which will have some advantages, Notts just has to make sure Rodgrigues, Roberts and Wootton get enough of the ball. I am hoping that a clean sheet can be completed, as it would benefit the defence and Slocombe.
  18. The club might regret not being more hands on in this area, to keep young fans engaged you need to reach out to them.
  19. The goals shows why Ian Burchnall wants to play from the back.
  20. Disappointed to go 2-1 down to them, but the fight to get the win was good. I thought Roberts, Rodrigues and Lacey all did very well.
  21. Ian Burchnall has strengthened every area of the pitch, except up front and in goal. I know he's said that Tiernan Brooks will be the 2nd choice goalkeeper during this campaign, fans have speculated on Twitter how the number 7 shirt hasn't been assigned and the Post has claimed that Notts are preparing for a key signing. Notts on paper looks strong in every department, but up top could be improved with the right investment. Could this be a striker that we all want?
  22. Tremendous day of relief and thankfulness, that finally the club might have sensible owners that don't get overly involved with the fans.
  23. I don't think any coaching staff member has left, the club will want to strengthen up the coaching side a little more. I see no harm in that.
  24. Back when you could listen to the city without hearing people shouting etc.
