  3. Anyone else captivated by this competition this season? I spent yesterday evening watching Eintracht Frankfurt deservedly winning away at Barcelona in front of 30,000 travelling fans. As all the flights to Barcelona were sold out, some even took a detour via Tunisia to be there. Eintracht exposed Barca with their fast counterattacking time and again and could have scored more than three. Barca, on the other hand, carved out very few chances until they woke up in stoppage time. It looked like the kind of evening you always dream about as a football fan, and I'm also relieved that the competition won't be won by a team that sees it as a consolation prize.

    It'll be interesting to see Eintracht, West Ham and Rangers scrap it out in the semis - the competition means the world to all of them. Just have a sneaky feeling RB Leipzig will nick it instead.

  4. Sounded like a comfortable win despite the disadvantage of me listening! We did what we needed to do against what by all accounts is a very poor side, but that early goal was a warning that we won't have it all our own way over the next few weeks. Very glad to see Roberts back in and involved in a couple of the goals, that's the reaction we needed.

    We're seven points behind Halifax and five behind Solihull, so third remains a tall order. All we can do is keep winning and hope for the best.

  5. Friday is Good Friday! If you're too old for an Easter egg, worry not - simply grab some points in the prediction league instead. All matches kick off at 3pm on Friday, and remember your jokers!

     

    Hull City v Cardiff City

    West Brom v Blackpool

    Accrington Stanley v Burton Albion

    Wycombe Wanderers v Plymouth Argyle

    Mansfield Town v Sutton United

    Walsall v Carlisle United

    Southend United v Wealdstone

    Wrexham v Solihull Moors

    For me, given the result against Torquay and how he played against Kings Lynn last time out I’ll be very surprised if he’s not in the matchday 16. And then hopefully we can all forget move on from it.

    Fingers crossed. There might be nothing more to it than IB wanting to give him a wake-up call, and the timing of the England C game was just a coincidence.

    Regardless of any speculation I personally think he will be gone come the end of the season, as will a few others, just my opinion.

    Possibly, although Roberts hasn't been one of our star performers this season. Rodders, Palmer and Wootton are all out of contract and have all attracted interest, but it partly depends on where we're playing next season (however unlikely promotion feels right now). If they move on, we'll just have to find better replacements, that's the game.

  7. The results:

    Preston North End 2-1 QPR
    Reading 1-2 Cardiff City
    Cheltenham Town 1-0 Portsmouth
    Oxford United 1-2 Sunderland
    Rochdale 1-0 Walsall
    Swindon Town 0-1 Newport County
    Aldershot 2-1 Boreham Wood

    Here's something I just noticed - last season @ARLukomski broke the prediction league record with 233 points. A great achievement, but the new record wasn't all that surprising since it was the first complete season since the switch to 8 fixtures instead of 6. Well, last week @Dripsey3 broke that record with a full six rounds to go, before sportingly deciding not to add to that tally this week. And it looks likely that at least one other player will follow suit. Well done to all involved! Maybe we should start a lottery syndicate or something?

    Good Friday is called "good" because football matches are played on it. So that will be the date for round 42. I'll get the fixtures online on Tuesday or thereabouts. Until then, have a good week!

  8. Here's a disclaimer - every time we have a bad result, the usual suspects on social media start speculating that there's been a bust-up behind the scenes. I generally don't buy into it at all - just because we've lost or had a poor run, it doesn't mean there are punch-ups going on in the dressing room.

    But! Roberts hasn't played for Notts in a month, since Stockport away. He was fit enough to play 90 minutes for England C, before again being left out of the squad for the two Notts games following it. IB is now claiming that he left Roberts out of the matchday squad on merit. If words have been exchanged behind the scenes, he can hardly go public on it, but this explanation does not make sense. Roberts has been one of the first names on the team sheet this season, even though Rodders has taken his preferred position. You would AT LEAST expect him to be on the bench as an impact sub.

    Normally I'd be inclined to take IB and CR's word for it. Maybe it's nothing more than the manager simply wanting to give him a wake-up call. I'm just a bit concerned there's more to it and that it'll drag down performances.

  9. Right my lovelies, it's time to polish your crystal balls once again. As usual, the deadline is 3pm on Saturday, and you have a joker each.

  11. Great result that. We had a little bit of luck at the right times, but that's part of the game and will help us build some momentum. The top three is very much possible, but we can hardly afford to slip up if we want to get there - we might be only 4 points off, but Halifax, Wrexham and Solihull all have at least one game in hand.

  12. We've hit round 40, but there are 189 points still to play for. These matches kick off at 3pm on Saturday, and you have a joker each!

     

    Barnsley v Reading

    Cardiff City v Swansea City

    Accrington Stanley v Cheltenham Town

    Plymouth Argyle v Oxford United

    Newport County v Exeter City

    Stevenage v Oldham Athletic

    Aldershot v Eastleigh

    Chesterfield v Grimsby Town

  13. A young loanee from the Championship is always going to be a short-term fix, while Geraldo Bajrami (fantastic name) would presumably have been for the longer term. I think it's generally better to get someone on board who will be in the side for the next two or three years, and that's no reflection on Graham.

    @DangerousSausage I hope that's a slight error with the day or are you being a bit crafty and hoping everyone forgets to post while you sneak your predictions in just before kickoff.:rollonfloorlaughing::super::sheep:

    That's a good idea actually, thanks for the tip! 😁
