  1. I don't view it as a supporters trust as how can it be one with no input from the supporters? It's more like a private venture set up by a few mates to promote their own self importance. I've no trust in them at all as they haven't made themselves known or held a democratic election of officers.
  2. Tough one to call regarding Ardley as although he was dealt a bad hand, he was unable to inspire the side enough to get us out of the situation, even though we had a lot of games left to play. I'm not too fussed if he stays or goes and the same goes for O'Brien. Let's see what the alleged new owners want.
  3. About time. Will miss JIm O'Brien possibly and would have swapped him for Doyle, but can understand him wanting to go as he can do better. Of the ones still here, I would still expect Enzio and Hemmings to leave and would try to move on Kellett as he is too small and injury prone. Etete will probably be sold as well to be honest. The key depends upon who the new owner is and what they want from Notts.
  4. As already mentioned, he has to be kept in and around the first XI as the national league is his standard at the moment. As he becomes older and bulks up, he could become a very useful player for Notts. I don't like seeing young players being discarded by Notts as finding and using young players used to be one of the things we were half decent at 20-30 years ago.
  5. I thought Ardley met with the players last week to tell them? Surely the letter is just the club's formal notification to the player as to their status for next season? To be honest I would be very surprised of any were kept on.
  6. Experienced Keeper, one experienced Centre Half, Experienced central midfielder (who can still run), Target Man and quick partner. The rest of the side needs a lot of legs, physical presence and the ability to listen to those around them. Squad of 22 maximum and use the loan market when needed to supplement the side.
  7. He's not good enough and was found out so easily last season. I think he will stay for the final year of his contract, but I expect a senior keeper to come in, probably one who is 34 plus and with league experience. Rather take a keeper that is vocal and can organise their defence over a shot stopper every day of the week, one who can do both won't be in the national league.
  8. Spot on Chris, although I can see it taking around 4-5 years for us to go back up. Let's face it this has been coming since Pavis left the club around 20 years ago. Scardino was like Hardy and spent money he did not have, administration and the Trust years followed and we could have gone down then. Munto comes along and we get promoted on fake money and then Trigger finger Ray takes over and we never get a settled management team. We need to strip right back to basics, grow the infrastructure and learn to live within our means. Stop paying stupid wages to players that have only come for the money and invest in a young team (with a couple of old heads) with potential that can grow into a promotion side. We've had too many promises in the past, all with so little substance and I think we're all fed up with it.
  9. Woohoo! Don't think I'll bother thanks. Missed quite a few games this season due to unforeseen circumstances, so will pay as I go next season.
  10. Dan Jones is still under contract as he signed a two year deal last summer. Absolutely no idea who to sign, but we need more pace and younger legs throughout the side. I would say though that we will need an experienced, grisly, no nonsense Centre Half to play alongside Bird. Non of the current batch need apply. Hemmings, Dennis and Enzio will all be on a fair whack, so can't see any of them staying if we can get rid. If they do somehow stay, then we need to get the chemistry behind them spot on as they should score a shed-load.
  11. Any that are out of contract have to go, there just isn't room to offer any new deals as I think we have 15 players still under contract for next season. Of those 15, I would expect Enzio, Hemmings, Dennis and Rose to definitely go. Kellett, Doyle, Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Jones can all do one for me as well but doubt anyone will want them. Fitz will stay as backup even though I don't want him and would expect us to keep the younger players (Bird, Crawford, Patching) as they won't be on huge wages. Tootle will probably stay as I can't see anyone coming in for him and we might just hang onto O'Brien. That leaves Etete, who is bound to go, if not now then during pre-season. A total mess and we are going into the complete unknown, so it is imperative that we find a manager who knows the league. Personally I see it getting worse before it gets better and I can't see us challenging to go back up for probably 3-4 years unless we get owners that employs someone high up that knows what they are doing.
  12. He was unlucky as there player went down like he had been tackled by Jonah Lomu (load of young 'uns suddenly thinking who?), but I think the the fact that he admitted that there was contact will mean that there isn't any point in appealing.
