  1. I don’t think they are loose about the approach I think publicly they may well be but behind the scenes there is probably a lot going on. We didn’t know about Cal’s renewal until it happened. I think IB is playing a bit of a game with the media and possibly trying to stoke the interest in the players to maximise offers.
  2. I’ve just clocked the dates as well hadn’t spotted that before no idea why it had surfaced to the top again
  3. One thing Mr Hardy did get right is parts of the family stand as you walk along under the stand there’s like a comic style pictures and story depicting some of Notts best moments throughout our history which is really nice to see on a match day my kids love looking at it and asking if I was there for any of it some I can proudly say yes I was when I was your age others no far to young. On the subject of improvements I’m not sure there is an awful lot as it’s a lovely stadium, however I’ve always felt it was over ambitious size wise I’d much rather it of been built to a 15k capacity with the ability to expand if required as it breaks me seeing the huge empty space in the Sirrel although I do understand why Derek Built it the size he did as we were in a league with a lot other midlands clubs and looking to go back up.
  4. Reading the piece it sounds like Ian wants him back if he can, however Sam is a solid keeper and is more than capable I’d have him up there as one of the best in the league so we were lucky to have both him and Paterson together. Now the team is playing with a lot more confidence it will help Sam as well.
  5. I understand what you are saying on the social media front and the other areas. However I can only speak from my experience that they have been really good it’s been both my daughters birthdays recently a quick email conversation with the right people and two personalised signed pictures of their favourite players sorted and absolutely made their days. I think some of it is about approaching the right people in the club as I can’t imagine they leave anyone out deliberately.
  6. He does my brother did the hospitality thing for his birthday a few games back and Ian was in there before and after the game chatting to the supporters my brother says he came across really well
  7. Mark Draper would definitely be worth getting back involved I’m sure he runs an academy program with another Ex Pie Dave Norton for lads who have been released by clubs to give them the opportunity to play again could pick up some rough diamonds from there. Having said that the club currently is the most engaged with supporters as it has been for a long time but it’s nice to have ex players involved around behind the scenes.
  8. Definitely this I remember a few years ago there was a social media poll of overseas supporters and we were very high up in the poll appreciate its not the most accurate method survey but shows we have a large overseas supporter base and it’s a bit of an untapped market to make them feel part of the club
  9. I think we are in a good place from what I’ve seen of this league so far early pace setters rarely last the distance I’d like to be sitting top 3 or 4 with a 2 or 3 point gap come Christmas then it’s time to hit top gear and go on that run as that’s the time the title winners seem to hit their stride
  10. Was always going to happen as it’s the business model nowadays I think he will definitely go at the end of the season, with regards to January I think that will be dependent on the offer and our league position we just have to enjoy watching him while we can. I’m hopeful out owners and recruitment team will have replacements lined up and will reinvest any money wisely. I think we will just have to get used to seeing these great players for a few years then them moving onto higher levels
  11. So with last nights results for Grimsby and Chesterfield does that put our loss at the weekend into perspective? For me it just goes to show that this league is still massively unpredictable and no matter what we as supporters think/expect most teams are capable of beating each other on their day. It’s going to be another exciting season again I just hope we’ve done enough come the end of it.
  12. I certainly think we are good enough we just need to play with more intensity more often. When we come out second half we are often a lot faster and a lot more intense and when we play like that not many can live it with it. More often that’s not though we seem a little slow and laboured which makes it easy and invites opposition on to us. I don’t mind it for small parts of the game if we can reverse the minutes round so we are playing with intensity more often than not we will be all good if not then it’s the play offs again.
  13. I notice he’s also calling for B teams to join the EFL again if they can’t fill their ground for the first team who’s going to watch the B team?
  14. Agree with most of them although I think it’s a bit harsh on Matty Palmer who was man of the match for me the guy was everywhere and involved in everything covers so much ground and does a lot of the unseen work
  15. I don’t think there is any need to ban it from games maybe put limits on heading in training to limit the impacts. I also definitely think there needs to be a conversation about head injuries and how they are handled in football it seems to be way behind other sports in regards to concussion protocols and managing head injuries.
