  1. 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.
  2. 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.

  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. Isn't this typical of Notts? It's the top teams that Notts usually beats, look at Barrow away last season.
  7. @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.
  8. 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 wrong and I do feel it will be proven to be made up. Notts doesn't have the luxury to get the best manager in, or have a squad of 50 odd players because the next manager decides that half of the current lot aren't good enough. Neal Ardley has shown he can deliver, it's far too early to close the door.
  9. Yes, on the other hand Notts have a larger fan base and seem to be well supported via the streaming passes being sold. It's a bit backwards but it's for Notts to fight.
  10. I would be curious to know how many fans took up the offering of the live stream. I logged in and watched it on my laptop, I thought the quality was mostly okay. The one blip after the first half should be expected.
  11. There is enough cover in the centre of midfield, I feel. Good to Sloth but if he's injured and unhappy, it makes perfect sense to allow him to leave.
  12. Hopefully the conditions will be fine, I know there's rain forecasted but its supposed to ease up by time the game starts. I am sure Meadow Lane will be in perfect condition. Don't forget that the game is being aired on BT Sports. https://www.bt.com/sport/football/national-league/national-league-tv-picks-bt-sport It would be nice to see Ardley opt for a more attacking minded team, it's good Cal Roberts played but we need to be mindful about the fixtures. I think Notts should do much better at home.
  13. Winning a game comfortably would be nice, but I don't feel Dover will just allow Notts to walk all over them. The forecast has said that it should be quite rainy, so I hope the pitch holds up but I can see the game being scrappy for this reason.
  14. I am up for using the chat room on match days, with the games being streamed it would be a distraction.
  15. I plan to subscribe but I am curious as to what happens once fans can attend games. Will the subscription be then placed towards a season ticket?
  16. Someone needs to reassure clubs that they will be supported, if clubs are operating within their normal means, I see no reason why not to help.
  17. Welcome to PON @CurtisNCFC, another warm and friendly hello. Don't be a stranger on PON.

  20. People are quick to pull their kids from schools, but how many of these will attend a football match which will have a considerable amount of jeopardy attached to it? Not forgetting the amount of people who will not follow advice or safety measures. We all want to return to watching football and supporting our club. It must be done in the safest way possible, I do not believe we as a nation are ready for that yet. Tests must continue on sporting events, then assessments can be made and hopefully things will improve from there.
  21. Good luck to him, if he gets played he should go far. He's almost guaranteed 70% more game time away from Notts. Fingers crossed the move works out for him.
  22. Michael Doyle isn't under contract, he's been offered a new deal. Neal Ardley spoke about getting rid of the "old guard" image that had been picked up, but has allowed Tom Crawford to go. I can't see Jim O'Brien and Michael Doyle being that successful when played together.
  23. Michael Doyle offered a new deal, whilst Tom Crawford and Regan Booty have been released? Where's the logic in that??
