  1. He has to be given a chance. He played for a team that got to the playoff final, he knows what it takes to succeed in the Conference.
  2. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019–20_National_League We will be familiar with a number of the clubs we will face next season. I know a lot of Notts fans like the trip to Torquay and that's back on the agenda. Chorley's promotion is the story of the season. They are the David in a league with more than a few Goliaths. http://www.thenationalleague.org.uk/attendance-table-national-league-season-standings-56838 I'd imagine most clubs are rubbing their hands in glee that we have replaced Orient as attendances may even be better with Notts in the Conference. It's easy to see that Notts are the equivalent of a shark in your local pond. You can either cry and moan or you can embrace the challenge. It will be good to face teams we haven't faced before. Visit a whole load of new grounds. Sample the local beers. Meet the locals. Make the best of it.
  3. The first season is key. It's very easy to slip to the bottom of the Conference and wonder how you have found yourself in National League North! Let's not do a York......Consolidation next season is enough for me, build on that the following season. Notts County will be a league club again. Only a matter of time.
  4. Vadaine Oliver was at York when they got relegated to the NL South. I'm not superstitious but why tempt faith? Plus he's not very good. Here is the type of player we should be going after IMO. He's proven at Conference level. Sell EB and replace him with BT. https://us.soccerway.com/players/blair-turgott/160421/
  5. I'll tell you what sealed it for me. I saw a photo on the BBC FB page of you and your son, The look said it all. I know then that it was time to return!
  6. How do lads and lassies. It's been a while. I've been in self imposed exile since March 2017. I won't go into the reasons again, except to say that I had a beef with AH. AH had the best of intentions, I don't doubt that for a second, but his execution has cost us our league place. As AH is on his last legs at the club, I thought it was time to end my exile and start engaging on where we go from here. Make no mistake about it, the Conference is a tough league. Every team will be gunning for Notts, it will be the equivalent of a cup final for a lot of clubs. I've been keeping an eye on Barnet and they found the adjustment difficult. You have to bring in experienced players at Conference level and mix them with what's left over. If a team is not prepared to do battle every single game, they will find themselves near the bottom. I hope NA stays on as manager, I think he's the man for the job ahead, if not, we need a manager who has deep knowledge of the Conference. I bet Martin Allen will pop up if NA does leave! I'm not going to get sentimental because it was my choice, but I have missed all things Notts. The best thing about the club are the fans.
  7. Stevenage are the perfect example to show how average this league is. Don't get me wrong, what they have achieved so far is fantastic, but let's not kid ourselves either. Notts are a better side than Stevenage, that I'm certain of, away win for me.
  8. Great win. League 2 this season is average at best, makes you realize what Notts could have achieved if AH had been here earlier. Next season.....
  9. Plymouth is a tough place to go, even tougher on a Tuesday night. Notts are playing well so they will go there with confidence. Plymouth are a decent side but Notts shouldn't fear them. Hartlepool went there and won. I think it will be a lot tighter than expected. 2-1 to the home side I reckon.
  10. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/tables Notts gained a point on all the sides below them. If you look at the last 10 games, it's clear Notts are performing better than the sides below them which is very encouraging. All Notts need to do is keep 2 teams below them.
  11. Mixed feelings. A point is better than nothing but Notts should have picked up all 3. At least it keeps the run going which is important heading down to Plymouth tomorrow night.
  12. I can't see any other result other than a home victory. 3-2 to Notts.
  13. http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/league-two/table That looks a whole lot better does it? Even though Newport are adrift, they have a game in hand, but they have to start winning to have any chance of avoiding the drop. After that, it's still a lottery. It will be exciting that's for sure, but I'd rather Notts not be in the mix!
  14. Great result. The only concern is the defence. Having to score at least 2 every game is asking a lot. Mind you it's never boring.....
  15. Eden Hazard kicked a ball boy and got 3 games. Kelly had been harshly treated. One rule for the big boys....
