  1. I hope Notts can be at the strongest lineup to face Stockport, home soil and much needed points.
  2. Some fans are just vocal with their nonsense, they pick a player every season to pick at and wonder why they don't perform to their best.
  3. This has to be the lineup if the club goes for 3 at the back, if a 4-4-2 or just a standard back 4, then Cameron and Lacey would get my priority to start. Taylor/Chicksen and Brindley being the full backs.
  4. I honestly feel it will all sort itself out, the more fans panic and the more Ian Burchnall believes something is majorly wrong. The more likely he is to over do things in order to resolve the issue. Yes, it is poor to lose in the way Notts has in the last two games. That sort of self destruction shouldn't happen. Yet some fans are acting like we are in serious trouble, this shouldn't be used to force opinions to continue the managerial merry-go-round either.
  5. The squad is there, it just needs a few new faces and a bit more quality. Morale in the Notts camp will carry on from last season and those new additions will join a confident squad. I think it's a positive thing that we haven't gone out and signed every Tom, Dick or Harry.
  6. What a **t. He's not a role model for his children.
  7. It depends how he settles, but I think for Wrexham its a good signing.
  8. I would imagine if the club are paying a fee, it might be a smaller sum than people think. Perhaps Notts got something out of the Jake Reeves departure? Omar Bogle settled would be a good signing. I only worry that if its true and he does sign, he has become quite the journeyman and the first several months would be key to getting the most out of him. I will wait to see what happens but on paper I would be happy.
  9. Chesterfield's defeat in the last minutes, great feeling to win what seemed impossible.
  10. Notts needs to dig deep to get a positive result, Hartlepool are hard to beat at home but I am hopeful we can go 3 games unbeaten.
  11. The keeper wasn't going to save that shot.
  12. His form is due to the squad having a bad patch, slowing down his duties and asking him to focus on the basics does seem a good way to manage
  13. Right call, pleased he's gone back. Wasted opportunity here, never got going despite the one goal he got.
  14. Those kind of goals often take away the 80 minutes of dire football and make it worth having watched, if not just to see the players reaction to finding goal.
  15. Before their winning streak, they look piss poor but good in their attack. I see a similarity with Notts @liampie. Defensively we should have done much better, against Dover, Maidenhead etc. It grim before our own winning streak with calls for Neal Ardley's head then, I am afraid this will always happen when we lose but re-starting our own winning streak would lift morale within the Notts squad.
  16. I can say what the answer is for anyone else, as far as I am concerned it's worth the healthy debate over. I am not at the stage whereby I feel it's in the club best interest to sack Neal Ardley, he has shown that he's capable but as always there is room for improvement. I see his tenure so far as work in progress, but I understand why the honeymoon period has past for some because football is a cut throat business. There are improvements I think every fan would make given the chance. Just like a referees position on the pitch, being a manager isn't easy but 6 games in and 2 games in hand I am inclined to give the squad my full support. This means Ardley too.
  17. I will be tuning into the game via BBC Radio Nottingham. I don't know what to expect, Sutton have gotten themselves off to a flying start by winning all of their games so far. At home they will want to protect this, so any three of the possible outcomes could happen. I don't see any risk of postponement, I know some have been banging about the rain on social media. Sutton I suspect will be clever and attack using set pieces. By now most teams should have done their home work with this issue. If Roberts starts, I would feel Notts has more of an outlet. If he doesn't, I don't see the wider spaces being exploited and I think this would make it much harder for Notts to be creative.
  18. Hello, @colin savage. Welcome to PON.
  19. I plan to purchase all the home streams, I am encouraged to see that over 2160 I think purchased the last home game.
