  1. Bit of football ping pong there, well placed shot too.
  2. I am sure Effiong could be one of many to depart, loans can be useful but they need to come with the right attitude.
  3. I don't want my comments to be taken as negative, as I want Notts to succeed and I do hope for the best in any situation. The appointment Ian Burchnall comes across as a big experiment, underlining the possible flaws of his inexperience in the English game, the Non League could be a good place to learn. Yet those fans hoping for promotion this season, they need to see this for what it is and give him time. The benefits of what he speaks of, are the approach to tactics, stats, bringing in you players and managing a club in difficult circumstances. I will hold further judgement back, b
  4. I unfollowed content and forums due to not getting emails.
  5. That's the way it would seem, a Trew/Hardy style appointment but there is no guaranteed success by this method. I think the appointment of Ian Burchnall is questionable, it does seem like we are experimenting with a different style of managers.
  6. Many happy returns to you @super_ram, how are you and Granny Pie? Best wishes to you both, hope you had a good day despite the lockdown.
  7. If performances are good, I see no reason why he shouldn't be the clubs secondary striker. Kyle Wootton provided he's fit, should always be the first on the team sheet.
  8. Welcome to the community, @LadyAngelina86.
  9. Sorry to read you're feeling the weather @GrannyPie, get better soon.
  10. If the club is to be successful consistency is important, just as much important as stability. Notts are recruiting well, the squad has a lot of quality and for the most part supporting Notts is once again enjoyable. There will always be negatives when you support a club like Notts, but right now there does seem to be something special on the arisen for the club.
  11. The NL won't do anything, they are armatures and look after the smaller clubs because teams like Notts bring them more revenue.
  12. Notts needs to learn to give players like Sam more game time, he should do well and I don't blame him for moving from us. He needs to be playing, his career will only end up like the many young prospects we have had that fall out of the game due to a lack of opportunity.
  13. Champions or playoffs is acceptable for me as there is no guarantee of promotion. Torquay's dominance could fall short at some stage, Stockport could claim back up. There's no guarantee for any side, even if we are the biggest or best funded team.
  14. At 24 years old, he looks to be improving still but from what I have seen he's no Cal Roberts. He does look to be a very good player, but different and his burst to get forward into a goal scoring position is probably the only thing he does better than Roberts. Who prefers to skill his way through players.
  15. It has been awhile since we have had a player permanently who is so exciting as Cal Roberts, you can see he's a special talent and even with the injuries so far I fully expect him to be able to continue is pathway to the top. I remember seeing Matt Ritchie and feeling similar, but I do believe Roberts to have better potential.
  16. Good home performance? I suspect it will depend on the fitness levels. Winning Chesterfield should be somewhat of a boost, Wealdstone are unknown to me but I have seen their highlights. They look okay when organised but if rocked, they become sloppy. Lets hope Notts can cause them the pressure.

  18. I do wonder how many of those fans with itchy fingers to sack Neal Ardley right now, have complained about previous owners doing exactly the same thing. The club could pull the trigger now, which seems early but there could be rewards for waiting. Wealdstone are only one comparison, I hope they continue to do well. It's good to see an underdog in their posi
  19. If a player is good but just a steady performer than that should be good, Mike Edwards could be described as this and I think there's areas where this could be welcomed such as on the wing.
  20. Isn't this typical of Notts? It's the top teams that Notts usually beats, look at Barrow away last season.
  21. @liampie This season is by far a tough season, but I do understand your point because some are acting like by not being 5th or higher that this season is going downhill only 6 games in. I don't believe for a second that Football Radar are signing players without Neal Ardley's approval, I await to see what he does once fully match fit. That's because some fans only blame the manager, but lets face it, it's clearly both.
  22. I have seen fans on social media claim that those who want Ardley to stay as the manager, are accepting that Notts are second best. Are they forgetting what caused Notts County to demise through the leagues over the years or even what helped the club rise to the old First Division? The reason Notts ended up out of the Football League is because we sack managers far too easily. Aside from the odd game so far, the other performances have been quite good. Taking any excuses away from those for and against, have faith in the owners to make the correct decision, I hope the rumours are wro
