  1. A win for Notts could make all the difference right now, if the players work hard enough and want it. It should be enough to get it across the line, Yeovil are nowhere near as good as they have been in the past.
  2. The loss of focus and dealing with the opposition can be resolved in training if the players and coaching staff work hard enough. Notts's next win can be the prevention.
  3. My prediction would be 1-0 to notts, not the most exciting game but enough to keep fans happy.
  4. The National League with the amount that gets promoted, it makes it a lottery when it comes to promotion. I would like to see Ian Burchnall continue his interactions with the fans and team building exercises are a must. I would also like to see the club return to the community when it safe to get out and about.
  5. Does anyone remember what Joel Taylor was like against Notts? He looks a good signing, has a turn of pace about him and I think its part of the jigsaw in place now.
  6. If he clicks on the pitch, he could be a big, big, big signing.
  7. I would never have guessed this as a transfer but Peterborough should keep him in plenty of supplies of free kicks.
  8. He has to be worth the punt and gamble against slow teams, otherwise what will the point have been in signing the lad.
  9. It's good to have some youngsters around the first team, good luck to palmer and brooks this season.
  10. It's nice to see the member of the month back!! Well done @Piethagoram.
  11. Ian Burchnall does need time to address things from Neal Ardley's reign, he will be learning every game about the squad and I think the start of his time here is a shock. I have quickly come to think he could do well, he should be ambitious. This season seemed all over, Sutton and Barnet's results now suggest otherwise. Judge him nearer to next Christmas.
  12. It depends on Doyle's attitude and approach to the coaching, but I do agree with others who have said that it makes sense. Right now, he will act as the best "in-between" the manager/players. Having his unwavering I think would be the biggest sign of support. The players might be unsure of the direction he will take them in, but having Doyle as that bridge should help. I think the early signs are promising too.
  13. Its a daft comment to make by someone who should know better, I accept that there was no malice and it was probably said due to frustration. Nothing makes it acceptable and I am glad that all parties involved moved on with matters. I thought Notts handled it well by putting out the short acknowledgment, they must have known he planned to address the event via the media.
  14. All I can say is I hope that he's given the same chance as Neal Ardley to succeed, if Notts struggles or does not reach the playoffs this term than he needs to be given a chance to go again. With his own style of players, a few in key areas and I am sure the club will be pushing forward. If he can gain the experience needed to be a good robust manager, we can only hope for the best. I am more than prepared to give him my full backing.
  15. I have no interest in what Alan Hardy has to say on Notts, there's no face value or honesty from the man. He sees things the way he wants and doesn't care what people thinks.
  16. Good movement from Notts, I thought the pitched would prevent the ball from gliding across it due to the conditions but it was not the case. Ruben did well with the pass, a little heavy and Brindley used his pace and experience to get onto it.
  17. 3 more points nailed to the table, its building nicely. I note that BT Sports mentioned we are 6 points better off that last season. Its progress and such a good win, not that pretty on goal but the performance was perfectly fine.
  18. I have been lucky to see Notts play in the highest leagues within my life time, it would be nice for those out there who haven't enjoyed this success supporting the club could see it. I am in agreement that the National league is hard, even without the frequent games and other issues like COVID outbreaks. I do understand a desire to see the club perform well and be successful. This will take time.
  19. It was just a strike against Sutton, somewhat of a lucky one. Issue for Notts is a lack of creativity but if they handle the pressure it should be a good game.
  20. Terrible, I hope the family continues to get the support needed.
  21. It's probably the best contract renewal in the last 10 years or
  22. Away games is an area where we could do with getting the most out of. Kyle Wootton is in great form. It's just a loss if Cal Roberts can't start due to fatigue.
  23. Fantastic performance and result. It looked like Barnet might have made an amazing comeback, but the players did what was needed.
  24. Michael Doyle for his age is still a good player, I just expect a few off games but when he plays well it makes up for the few iffy performances.
