  1. Joe McDonnell's on the floor, thank god he's at County no more.
  2. I remember the takeover talks also, but I don't remember much else about it. It seemed to go quiet.
  3. I hope the form in league starts to pick up, I see this as an unwelcomed distraction from the more important business of getting out of the league.
  4. The injury to Tshimanga will be a vital blow for them, it will be interesting to see how Chesterfield cope. Paul Cook's appointment is a little baffling to me.
  5. Notts just stopped doing what worked in the first half and found it difficult to match Grimsby's desire. A draw wouldn't have been so bad, yet to lose in the dying moments of the game after leading for so long annoys me. Ruben Rodrigues barely contributed anything positively to the game. I have seen criticism of Kyle Wootton, but I thought he had little to no service. I don't understand why the midfield didn't do their jobs better, Cal Roberts won't always have that spark to create something. I thought he was poor in the second half, very wasteful.
  6. The biggest issue is compliancy. Ian Burchnall isn't responsible completely this for this, majority of it would fall onto the players shoulders. It would be nice if Notts could be more ambitious without throwing caution to the wind, most fans have identified that we need a striker and I do think its time we played Eli Sam more, he doesn't always fit into the system. Bringing him on in the last 30 minutes, or if height was needed is fine. The midfield is by far the best Notts has had for years, defensively we could be a lot better. On paper the defence should be doing a lot better to see out games, I think Alex Lacey has been quite poor since his return from injury. I am not convinced Richard Brindley should feature as part of the three at the back. I would say we miss the fight and determination of Dion Kelly-Evans. It's almost like the players and club have resided to settle for the playoffs. If improvements aren't met, this could be more of a challenge than the reason why we departured with services with Neil Ardley.
  7. His first start will likely be Saturday, from what I have seen and read, he looks a good addition to the squad. His size will help ease pressure from the aerial threat.
  8. It has been well turned out, not just by Notts fans or ex players but people of Nottingham. Colin Slater would be humbled by the respect, its great to see.
  9. I might be the only one who thinks losing Cal Roberts wouldn't be that harmful, I actually think performances improved when he was side lined. Less emphasis on his position or creativity which hasn't quite been to his standard this season. No surprise either that his performances have lifted after this news but realistically he isn't going anywhere. There is also no way, Notts would sell a player to a team in the same situation as us. Hopefully his performances continue to impress, when he is in form it does benefit the club.
  10. Fair comments I feel, the comments about being the best team in the league is noteworthy.
  11. The Kings Lynn keeper shouldn't be beaten at his near post by that effort from Frank Vincent, brilliant goals.
  12. This win could be the turning point of our season, a good result and Cal Roberts firing in 3 goals won't hinder his confidence what with the bid from Chesterfield.
  13. Colin Slater will be greatly a missed, he will always be the voice of Notts County.
  14. Pub quizzes are fun, especially when you have to improve in order to win. Nothing beats beating a group obsessed with getting everything right.
  15. I don't have mine set but I have used it in the past, personalisation is always a good touch.
  16. If all had 2-3 year deals, I would agree but three of them expire at the end of the season.
  17. Peterborough United 3-1 Barnsley Stoke City 2-2 Blackburn Rovers Bolton Wanderers 1-0 Cheltenham Town Plymouth Argyle 0-2 Wigan Athletic Joker Northampton Town 1-1 Leyton Orient Swindon Town 3-1 Harrogate Town Grimsby Town 1-0 Boreham Wood Wrexham 1-2 Bromley
  18. I thought the signing seemed a bit random and pointless, however, if Aaron Nemane is out for longer than at least the club has cover.
  19. Negations better be had, losing Kyle Wootton on a free would be see as a major disaster for the club.
  20. This is a very good idea, some cracking ideas to be found inside it for Christmas.
  21. Notts just needs to be patient with their play, there will be times when Rochdale should press more and that is when we could sting them. I think the counter play tonight will be the area Notts enjoys more of its possession. Prediction? I couldn't possibly guess.
  22. Some fans will still say he's boring/useless when we lose a game, but I see his potential. His decision making is the real joy to behold, as it gets the response needed from the players. That said I do listen to his interviews.
  23. I do have some concerns about playing Adam Chicksen and Richard Brindley as outright centre backs, both do well to cover but are more natural on the wing. If Notts are hit with an injury to Kyle Cameron it would be a big blow. Its situations like this you hope to have Pierce Bird type defender to fall back onto.
  24. I would hope that if Notts fails to win at Meadow Lane and that we hit another blip, fans don't jump to the assumption its related to this. You have to respect the draw, in the first half it didn't seem likely to happen. I'll be at the home rematch.
