  1. I didn't hear the interview, only from a third party who said the same thing. I can only think that it was GB that didn't want him, but haven't a clue why as he is miles better than anyone else who plays in our back four. I still stand by the fact that we need a big ugly centre half though and not Sheehan in that position. Sheehan as a left back and centre half cover? It would have been a yes.
  2. More useful to dress him up and use him as a corner flag, he would be more mobile in that position as well!
  3. I have no idea on the standard of Irish football, but if it is physical then that can only be a good thing. Too often talented young players just can't hack it in the men's game because they are not prepared for the physical nature of lower leagues football early enough.
  4. Warnock used to always leave 2 or 3 up front and we had blistering pace back then with Johnson and Bartlett (and Regis in Div2), so the opposition had to keep 3 or 4 back to cover them. Bringing everyone back just invites pressure and gets in the keepers way.
  5. Awful team selection, non existent tactics (apart from hoof it), players low on confidence, poor manager = one thing, relegation form. Lets just hope we got enough points early doors to see us over the line, but it could be grim next year.
  6. They found it easy to bully us and the ref was happy to let them, Elliot won everything in the air first half and the shot for his goal would have gone into the stands nine times out of ten. I was quite pleased to see Adams back in the side, as I was sure this would have released Milsom into midfield to strengthen it, but no, they were the opposite way round, so all we had was Curtis desperately trying to make things happen. Jamie Fullarton said when he joined that he wanted Notts to play effective football, well there was nothing effective in what I saw yesterday, just despair. I don't know where we go from here, as they were truly woeful and I can't see a lot of non season ticket holders paying to watch that every other week.
  7. I take it that Sprockel has been banished from the club for impersonating (badly) a footballer? Wouldn't mind seeing McKenzie again, as I have only seen him once and he did OK, but I think he is made of glass.
  8. I seriously doubt we will ever see Amevor again, but I can see Fullarton going out and getting a centre half with physical presence, which is our priority after all. Good luck to Sheez, but we are covered at left back and I would rather see the money available go elsewhere in the team. He might come back in the summer, as I'm sure we will want to talk to him, but it all depends on if the manager wants him, or not.
  9. My World: I would be golfing every weekend instead of the current once in a blue moon. Wife's world: She would say that I would be doing DIY every weekend, or shopping (yeah, right)!
  10. I could see Adams wanting to leave when Moniz was in charge, in fact I can think of a few players that might have felt the same and I also doubt the truth behind Murray's comments, they all seem a bit desperate to me, as though he is trying to say the right things that Mansfield fans want to here. I bet all Adams has said is that he wants to play football, so he is back at Notts to show what he can do.
  11. I've not read and I'm not going to read the bad press he has had in the past, as far as I'm concerned, he is the Notts manager now and I will support him until he is either sacked (or deserves to be!), or moves on. He knows far more about football than I do, but there is the one thing that definitely needs addressing that has not been addressed for several years and that is the need for a Gary Strodder style centre half. Someone that gives the players and fans the confidence to think we are not going to get beat easily with him at the back.
  12. If Haye had his shorts pulled up any higher they would be under his armpits! I don't like the fact that waistbands on shorts are now making it harder to throw body punches, legitimate punches would now be called low compared to past fighters. I see that Haye is after Joshua, but Joshua is still learning, so I can understand why he wants to fight him. Get in early to raise your own profile, whereas in a year or two, Joshua will be just too good for him and Haye knows this.
  13. Not seen an issue, but then I am using a Mac and not horrid Windows!! When you browse other sites, are they appearing as normal, or are you seeing extra advertising? You may have downloaded some malware, so would be worthwhile running an anti-malware scan just to be safe.
  14. I would love for Bish to come back, we desperately need someone like him in midfield in order to release our attacking players. Not sure what system we are likely to play, but if it is different (almost certainly) to Moniz's then I am struggling to see how Aborah is going to fit into it. I still think that Adams is our best option at left back, unless we can get Sheehan, but the new manager will have other priorities at Centre Half first.
  15. Welcome to the board NewNottsFan. Quite a ringing endorsement that, are you his dad? I'm hoping that he will give us what we have sadly been lacking these last few years, a new direction and more importantly wins!
  16. I know that Wroe is back as he has tweeted that he is, not sure on Adams, but I think he is the best option that we currently have at left back. I would like to see Milsom in midfield to hopefully give us better balance.
  17. He appears to have a shelf life of around 2-3 years at most clubs (apart from Cheltenham) and then he ends up leaving one way or another. Don't think he would ever come back to Notts and not sure if he would be able to build a team, rather than buying one.
  18. Double Diamond? I was promised Red Stripe!
  19. I must admit that I'm the opposite, as I pretty much only watch and listen to Notts, I don't even watch MOTD that often (too much skill depresses me). I have gone through this before and totally lost interest during the Admin/Trust years, only going occasionally and preferring to spend my Saturday's golfing, but even though I find this appointment uninspiring, I'm willing to give him until the end of the season to show me that he does have a bit of a clue.
  20. Thanks everyone, been a Notts fan since the mid-late 70's, but only been a regular down the lane since the mid 80's when I started earning money! Normally I use Twitter and occasionally the Mad site but it has been taken over by that Forest fan, so thought I would move on as he is deleting more posts and threads than what are listed. Liking the Tapatalk feature, so will hopefully post more than I normally do when I have to sit in front of a laptop.
