  1. Hey Chris. I found one more. Everton beat Notts in the quarter finals in 1984 and went on the beat Watford 2-0 in the final. I know there are more, it's something I'll look into when I have time.
  2. Obviously delighted that the playoffs are going ahead. Notts are in a good place and we have plenty of reason to be optimistic.
  3. It's ironic that Barnet's issues with their playing surface has actually worked in their favour and propelled them into the playoffs. Sometimes it's better to be lucky.........
  4. OK it seems we have to count that. Sigh...........
  5. Yep, their haul is: 4 League Titles 6 FA Cups 1 Charity Shield 1 Inter Cities Fairs Cup (UEFA Cup) 1 INTERTOTO Cup Still they have never won the Anglo Italian Cup and Notts have, so at least there's that
  6. Indeed I would. It would be an unique opportunity. I haven't got the prettiest mug in the world so a couple of pretty people either side of me would be required!
  7. Would it be best to call it now? We'd only be predicting on 2 divisions. Half of what we usually pick on.
  8. Ireland missed out on Euro 96 after losing to the Netherlands in a playoff. I still watched the tournament, I was supporting our Celtic neighbours to the North, Scotland. I can still picture Gazza's goal against Scotland. Genius. At least the Scots finished the tournament on a high, beating the Swiss 1-0. Who would have thought the Czechs would have got to the final. They lost their opening group game and needed a 88th minute goal to draw 3-3 with the Russian which took them through on head to head over Italy. Would England have beaten Czech Republic? I think they would have. Those pesky Germans again!
  9. I'm reading a book on the FA Cup. Sunderland won the cup in 1973. They were lucky to get past Notts County in Round 3. Notts lead 1-0 at Meadow Lane, thanks to a Les Bradd goal in the 29th minute. Sunderland levelled it on 79 mins but even they will admit that Notts were the better team and should have won the game. Notts lost the replay 2-0 at Roker Park but were in the game right up to the last minute. Match report below. I wonder how many times Notts have been knocked out by the eventual winners? https://rokerreport.sbnation.com/2011/01/07/roker-relives-safc-v-notts-county-fa-cup-3rd-round-replay-1973
  10. I'm in Ireland. I'm lucky to be able to work from home so I'm grateful to be still in employment. It looks like it will be August before I see the office again and even then it won't be full time as there will be safety measures in place so that not everyone is in the office at the same time. Some of the restrictions are being lifted so by July I'll be able to go 20km from my home. I use public transport so it will be for essential trips only when I do go out. I'm looking forward to getting a haircut!
  11. Correct. Well done. He came on as a sub against Northern Ireland and started against Spain. He suffered a knee injury in the Spanish game that ended his career. He was sentenced to 28 months in jail for conspiring to supply illegal drugs in 2011. I wonder what he is doing now? Is he living in Nottingham I wonder?
  12. Only one Notts County player played in a World Cup while at the club. Can you name him? I'll give you a clue. It was at the 1986 World Cup in Mexico.
  13. Non Stop Erotic Cabaret - Soft Cell Upstairs At Eric's - Yazoo Breaking Glass - Hazel O Connor. This is the soundtrack from the movie. Hazel O Connor signed 2 postcards that came with the DVD for me recently. They will be framed and put on my wall. I was really touched that Hazel too the time to do this for me. Please - Pet Shop Boys Sunshine On Leith - The Proclaimers
  14. On this day 8 years ago I was standing in the away end at Brentford watching Notts play out a 0-0 draw. Notts were right in the mix for a playoff spot in League 1. A week later a 4-2 home loss to Bury proved to be the decisive result as Notts missed out on the playoffs on goal difference. Stevenage beat us to the last playoff spot. Fast forward to today, Brentford are pushing for promotion to the PL, Notts are in the Conference, Bury went bust and Stevenage are last in League 2. A lot can happen in 8 years!
  15. Notts are in a good place. Keep most of the squad we have, add a few and we'll win the league next season (assuming this season doesn't finish). If it does return this season, I think Notts could catch Barrow, if not, I think Notts would sin the playoffs.
