  1. I've walked up there so many times, yet I wouldn't have guessed it in a million years going by the first pictures. Insane how streets can change, and sadly not usually for the better.
  2. I could have sworn Wootton got one a few weeks back. Must be going mad. So the last one was probably Jimmy Knowles against Woking back in April. Danny Allsopp scored a hat trick on his debut for us, a 5-1 win against Bournemouth (?). (Edit - no, that was Brett Angell). I don't think Stallard got one in his entire career. He certainly didn't for us.
  3. The results: Millwall 0-1 Nottingham Florist Preston North End 1-1 Birmingham City AFC Wimbledon 0-0 Morecambe Lincoln City 0-1 Cambridge United Bradford City 2-1 Salford City Colchester United 0-2 Barrow Grimsby Town 2-0 Altrincham Wealdstone 2-1 Dover Athletic --- This was quite a high-scoring round (with the exception of one idiot at the bottom, ahem). This week's best scorers were @magpiejue and @GrannyPie! @magpiejue, @GrannyPie - 11 @Dan, @4everapie - 8 @nottsnutter, @Chris, @barnet11uk - 7 @ARLukomski - 6 @jimbob - 5 @gtownjohnno, @Megan_Elizax - 4 @Dripsey3, @super_ram - 3 @DangerousSausage - 2 --- @Dan is now six points clear, while @magpiejue and @4everapie move into joint third: Dan - 165 Dripsey3 - 159 magpiejue - 134 4everapie - 134 gtownjohnno - 131 super_ram - 129 DangerousSausage - 120 ARLukomski - 119 jimbob - 117 nottsnutter - 114 GrannyPie - 109 Megan_Elizax - 107 Chris - 106 barnet11uk - 93 KB1862 - 52 liampie - 45 Joshua - 34 Feral Fox - 29 allardyces tash - 21 TheSkipper - 16 CliftonMagpie - 10 Alex - 7 Canadian - 4 --- So that's us done for another week. The next full league programme is on Saturday, so I'll post the fixtures on Wednesday night. Please post declarations of triumph, banter and commiserations below, but remember - it's a marathon, not a sprint see you all then!
  4. Wasn't it Kyle Wooton just a few weeks ago? No idea who was the last before that - Jon Stead possibly.
  5. Here's your reminder - the action starts tomorrow: @super_ram, @ARLukomski, @nottsnutter, @Chris, @GrannyPie, @barnet11uk, @KB1862, @liampie, @Joshua, @Feral Fox, @allardyces tash, @TheSkipper, @CliftonMagpie, @Alex, @Canadian
  6. Millwall 1-2 Nottingham Florist Preston North End 2-0 Birmingham City (joker) AFC Wimbledon 2-1 Morecambe Lincoln City 2-1 Cambridge United Bradford City 1-1 Salford City Colchester United 1-1 Barrow Grimsby Town 1-1 Altrincham Wealdstone 2-0 Dover Athletic
  7. It's Saturday, it's 3 o'clock, it's the PON prediction league! And remember your jokers Millwall v Nottingham Florist Preston North End v Birmingham City AFC Wimbledon v Morecambe Lincoln City v Cambridge United Bradford City v Salford City Colchester United v Barrow Grimsby Town v Altrincham Wealdstone v Dover Athletic
  8. I never got to meet him in person, but as I didn't travel away much (and have been holed up in Germany for the last few years), I have spent a lot of matchdays in Uncle Colin's "company". He was a link to the past in so many ways - to the club's past, of course, as he'd been covering Notts since the late 1950s and had seen ALL of the ups and downs since that time. But also to broadcasting past - he sounded unique (possibly a result of the pronunciation expected of radio commentators half a century ago) and he drew such a precise picture of the match. You always knew where the all was, and he knew exactly who the opposition's players were too. And of course he took to the club, and the fans took to him, as Dripsey says. He famously helped a takeover go through in the mid-sixties. Now of course we think of him as being Notts through and through, but think about that in the context of the time - he was a local journalist from Bradford with no previous connection to the club, having moved a few years before, helping save the club. That surely wasn't part of the day job! I wonder how many other times he's helped the club without ever publicising it. I hope there were some high dropping balls in honour of him last night. Colin Slater is one of a very select group of people who deserve to be called Notts legends.
  9. A lot of footage of Wrexham players falling other, but that aside it's good to see the match from more of a fans' perspective. Still not sure whether the handball was really intention (was a definite penalty though), but the referee's decision is final and all that
  10. Colin Slater, the voice of the club for so many decades, has passed away aged 87. Condolences to his family and everyone who knew him. People talk about legendary players and managers, but it was Colin who was at our side through all those moments of triumph or (more often) non-triumph. It'll be difficult to imagine Notts without him. Here's a nice piece the club published about him. https://www.nottscountyfc.co.uk/club/hall-of-fame/colin-slater-mbe/
  11. The results: Cheltenham Town 1-1 Burton Albion Doncaster Rovers 0-1 Fleetwood Town Carlisle United 2-0 Bradford City Colchester United P-P Rochdale Stevenage 3-1 Walsall Barnet 1-1 Altrincham Bromley 2-1 Solihull Moors Weymouth 0-1 Southend United --- The best scorers this week were @ARLukomski and @4everapie with 7 - congrats! @4everapie, @ARLukomski - 7 @Dan, @Dripsey3, @Megan_Elizax - 6 @DangerousSausage, @jimbob - 5 @magpiejue, @nottsnutter, @Chris, @barnet11uk - 4 @GrannyPie - 2 @gtownjohnno, @super_ram - 1 --- So this is the latest table, which contains good news for @4everapie, @ARLukomski and @Chris... Dan - 157 Dripsey3 - 156 gtownjohnno - 127 4everapie - 126 super_ram - 126 magpiejue - 123 DangerousSausage - 118 ARLukomski - 113 jimbob - 112 nottsnutter - 107 Megan_Elizax - 103 Chris - 99 GrannyPie - 98 barnet11uk - 86 KB1862 - 52 liampie - 45 Joshua - 34 Feral Fox - 29 allardyces tash - 21 TheSkipper - 16 CliftonMagpie - 10 Alex - 7 Canadian - 4 --- The next round is this coming Saturday (the 15th), so the fixtures will be online on Wednesday night. Thanks for playing and look after yourselves!
  12. Fans of both clubs were talking about the possibility of this being called off beforehand due to the awful weather forecast and the state of the pitch. If Dover were so surprised, that shows a lack of foresight. The way a couple of clubs in this league are run is shambolic. Most clubs in the Northern Counties East league put them to shame.
  13. Thanks for posting this! David James is the odd one out, as he became known for embarrassing mistakes during his club career, took the England jersey at the twilight of his career and was always reliable for his country. But after him we had a series of England goalkeepers who weren't at the top level and didn't cope with international tournaments. That's more to do with them not being good enough than some kind of curse. There is an issue with all this though - goalkeepers are under far more scrutiny than outfielders. Every player makes mistakes - defenders scuff clearances, midfielders lose the ball, strikers miss chances. But when you're a goalkeeper, there is a bigger focus on your individual mistakes rather than the things you did right. If this were a list of strikers, we'd be talking about goals scored rather than individual chances missed.
  14. Cheltenham Town 0-2 Burton Albion Doncaster Rovers 0-1 Fleetwood Town Carlisle United 1-1 Bradford City Colchester United 1-1 Rochdale Stevenage 0-2 Walsall (joker) Barnet 2-1 Altrincham Bromley 2-0 Solihull Moors Weymouth 1-2 Southend United Saturday 3pm is time for football, and the prediction league too. Get your predictions in! @super_ram, @ARLukomski, @GrannyPie, @Chris, @barnet11uk, @KB1862, @liampie, @Joshua, @Feral Fox, @allardyces tash, @TheSkipper, @CliftonMagpie, @Alex, @Canadian
  15. It is all very odd @Chris. I wouldn't be surprised if Tschimanga has a buy-out clause in this contract that is forcing Chesterfield into action. They might have spent 300k on him, but if they can double their money or more (while getting a sack full of goals) that's good business, and they'll have cash for the transfer market. I doubt they really think they can sign Roberts, although they would if they got the chance. It's a cynical attempt at unsettling him, or even starting a bidding war.
