  1. I think Wootton will be rested. It would be foolish to rest most of the first team IMO. I think Notts will win but wouldn't be surprised if it ended in a draw.
  2. Millwall 1-1 Luton Nottingham Forest 2-0 Blackpool (Joker....I feel dirty ) Cambridge 2-2 Ipswich Fleetwood 2-1 Crewe Lincoln 1-1 Charlton Bradford 2-1 Bristol Rovers Crawley 1-2 Sutton Exeter 2-1 Newport County
  3. I eat Blueberries with my porridge. I eat a banana for my mid morning snack. I like strawberries, oranges, pears. There aren't many fruits I won't eat.
  4. Get well soon @GrannyPie I know how much Chris and family adore you. That kind of love is special.
  5. Very important 3 points. Stops the rot. Cameron is vital to our chances of going up. There are no other leaders if he isn't fit.
  6. Ipswich Town v Shrewsbury Town 2-0 (Joker) Sheffield Wednesday v Bolton Wanderers 2-1 Barrow v Leyton Orient 1-1 Hartlepool United v Northampton Town 2-1 Mansfield Town v Oldham Athletic 2-1 Boreham Wood v Dagenham & Redbridge 2-1 Dover Athletic v Barnet 1-2 Wealdstone v Eastleigh 1-1
  7. Yeovil away. At least we are getting it over with early in the season and it's not a mid week fixture. Yeovil are 14th but they have only played 7 games, Notts have played 10. They haven't won in their last 3 games. 1 draw and 2 defeats. They have only scored 1 goal in those 3 games so must be delighted that they are coming up against the Notts defence this weekend! They don't concede too many goals. 7 in 7 games is impressive. Yeovil are a dangerous side because they are unpredictable. They went to Stockport and won 3-0 but then last Saturday they could only manage a 0-0 draw at home against 10 man Maidenhead. This is a matchup of 2 sides who badly need a win to stop the rot. I think it will be a close game. 1-1 draw for me. Notts to take the lead and Yeovil to level it in the last 20 minutes.
  8. We are missing the players who provide leadership on the pitch. When the chips were down and a bit of pressure was put on, this team folded. 2 games in a row shows it's not a blip. They lack character. They lack backbone. Show us that is not the case starting next Saturday. How they respond will speak volumes as to where this club is going. We now know the answer to can these players do it on a wet Tuesday in Halifax. It's an empathetic No. In capital letters. NO.
  9. Halifax are unbeaten in their last 5 games. They haven't conceded a goal in their last 3 games. They have scored just 1 goal in their last 2 games though. They drew 0-0 at Barnet on Saturday. They were the better side but didn't take their chances. I know another side like that........... This is going to be a very difficult game for Notts. Halifax are a decent side and difficult to beat. On form, Halifax will be favourites. It will be an exciting game I reckon. Both sides will create chances, it will come down to who takes them. My prediction is a 1-0 win for Halifax. IB hasn't had enough time to correct the issues from last Saturday. If we get anything out of this game, it will be one of the results of the season so far.
  10. I'd like to play Kidderminster or Ware at home. Just because
  11. The injuries we have had have disrupted us. No denying that. My worry is the lack of physicality in midfield. It's not really something we can address unless we dip into the loan market for a tough tackling midfielder who can win the ball back and be a presence on the pitch. I don't see it improving any time soon and it pains me to say that. Halifax will beat us on Tuesday. Sigh.
  12. Woking score 3 goals in 8 minutes and lead 3-1. You can't win the league in October but you can certainly make it almost impossible to win it. Notts are creaking and creaking badly at the moment.
  13. Cardiff City v Reading 0-1 Derby County v Swansea City 2-1 Fleetwood Town v Charlton Athletic 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday v Oxford United 2-1 Bristol Rovers v Swindon Town 1-1 Colchester United v Salford City 1-0 Maidenhead United v King's Lynn 2-1 Torquay United v Wealdstone 2-0 (Joker)
  14. Woking are a decent side. They ended Chesterfield's unbeaten run during the week. They have scored 13 goals in 6 games so they know the goal is. They do concede goals. 9 in 6 games. Tahvon Campbell is their danger man. 6 goals in 6 games. Woking went to Torquay and won 4-0. They only lost 1-0 to Wrexham away. To me it looks like they raise their game for the high profile games and make it very difficult for the so called favourites for promotion. I expect a very difficult afternoon for Notts. I think Woking will create chances against what isn't our first choice defence. Our attack needs to up their game considerably if we are to have a chance of winning this game. We are unbeaten at home so you would expect a better performance than last week. I hate to say it but I think Woking will win this game. 2-1 to Woking is my prediction.
  15. I don't think this squad will win promotion. I hope I'm wrong obviously. We need some quality up front. Sam and Mitchell are not the answer.
  16. Very poor performance yesterday. That defeat was coming for a while. Not losing papers over the cracks so at least now IB knows what to address and sort out.
  17. Blackburn Rovers v Cardiff City 1-1 Nottingham Florist v Millwall 2-1 Morecambe v Accrington Stanley 1-1 Oxford United v Gillingham 2-1 (Joker) Hartlepool United v Exeter City 1-2 Sutton United v Carlisle United 1-1 Dagenham & Redbridge v Solihull Moors 2-1 Stockport County v Wrexham 1-2
  18. Altrincham have played only 4 games. They didn't have a game last weekend. They have won 2 and lost 2. Their best result was a 3-1 win at Torquay. Their last game was a 1-0 loss at Wealdstone. They are a decent side and no push over. I don't think they will finish in the top half but I don't think they'll be relegated. The worry I'd have is the loss of Cameron & Rawlinson. I think we'll concede at least 1 goal. I'll go for a 2-1 to Notts but a draw is the most likely result.
  19. I couldn't believe what I was reading when I saw some pundits predicting a playoff place for Barnet. Their squad is poor. It's a squad that will be fighting relegation. Harry Kewell is not the man for a relegation fight. Barnet's issues go beyond what's happening on the pitch. Their future is gloomy. I wouldn't be surprised to see them fold in the not too distant future which would be a shame as I like going there when I'm in London.
  20. A game Notts should be winning, especially at home. Might be another thriller but that wouldn't be good for the blood pressure! 2-1 Notts.
  21. Middlesbrough v Blackpool 2-1 QPR v Bristol City 2-1 AFC Wimbledon v Plymouth Argyle 2-1 Portsmouth v Cambridge United 2-0 (Joker) Bradford City v Barrow 2-1 Tranmere Rovers v Salford City 1-1 Bromley v Barnet 3-1 Torquay United v Southend United 1-1
  22. Happy with the 3 points but that defence has serious issues. We won't outscored every team in this division, the defending has to improve.
  23. And Kyle makes it 2-1. We're lucky to have him as well!
  24. 1-1. Roberts again. We're lucky to have him.
