  1. Trolleybuses sounds like something you have to manually push yourself.
  2. Re: CB's Cameron - Rawlinson - Lacey This would be my preferred choose, with Lacey going into the middle if Brindley coming in when needed. I like Patterson but I think his experience so far is the only weakness, he crumbles when the defence does and I think this is where Slocombe shows he's the stronger option.
  3. Hopefully, the Notts team that are overcoming the recent defeats will continue to get ahead when they have fallen back. Or if it is later in the game and our attacking form has stopped being effective, this will be time for us time to time waste a little with passing football, otherwise after time we might generally fold as opposed to keep pushing.

  5. Shambolic defending to allow the game out of reach, it is as if the players have no confidence to finish a match off.
  6. It's one of the best early draws that Notts have had for years, though I do think the aim is to make the actual knockout round.
  7. One thought I have, is Notts trying to do too much to soon? I would agree, there's a mix of issues and that is most likely what is proving to be difficult to resolve.
  8. Give Matt Palmer the ball, make space and that will keep Notts moving forward. We have to be a lot more creative. I don't want to see Notts attempt to walk into the back of the net, someone has to try their luck from distance. With Cal Roberts out, we might be one dimensional.

  10. I like how Ian Burchnall explains his decisions, he speaks very well throughout and it's hard not to connect with him.
  11. I've seen him play, he's a good prospect that should do just fine here. I am excited to see how he fits in, as Notts has needed someone with a bit of pace at the back, and whilst Kyle Cameron will be a loss. I think if he does well, Ian Burchnall should consider trying to bring him in for the full season.
  12. Notts would be foolish to miss this chance, if it doesn't happen I won't be happy. I would support any reason to bring back the 09/10 squad, imagine the vibe of this testimonial/retirement game and the optimism leading into the first team players. The fans believing promotion is realistic and results go our way, two events could be remembered for a long time. It fuels the positivity doesn't it?
  13. Home shirt! I don't think the mint shirt is bad, I just don't think it's Notts. I don't personally like it.
  14. Yes, it can be like that. I think under the Reedtz it's been much better. I think Notts might bring in a striker on loan.
  15. I think with some game time and faith, Lewis Knight could prove to be a very important player in time. If he plays out wide as a forward or more as a striker, his pace and potential will only grow with any chance given. I don't think he's done bad so far, and should be considered ahead of Elisa Sam who I believe will perform better this season.
  16. Tough times has made the best of discussing Notts on here, there's no snide remarks or petty behaviour. Just a friendly place to share your views, which I think every will say they appreciate reading even if they don't agree. It gives that balance. I glad to see you joining in @steve61, welcome from me too.
  17. Looks to be a good signing, I think he's the type that is just steady and works hard. He should do very well at this level, could definitely play at League One level.
  18. @Piethagoram didn't he say, that he would have to see more of McCrory before making a judgement call? I know he said that he hadn't seen much of him before the friendly against Coalville. Kyle Bennett was mentioned by Portsmouth as linking up with Michael Doyle. They could be jumping to conclusions but it sounds to me as if Burchnall is thinking of signing them [Sherif/Bennett].
  19. Ed Francis does look a promising addition, on paper he looks to have a bit more about him than Will Patching did. Francis has experience of playing and seems to want to start, Patching looked content to warm the bench.
  20. Notts only needs one more striker, there's no worry about Sam he got a few goals and the more frequently he plays the more up to scratch he should get, even if it is just as cover.
  21. Decent friendly, Coalville looks an okay side for what they're. Well taken goals by Notts to win the game.
  22. Quality signing suitable of showing intent on challenging for the top place! Aaron Nemane is a massive upgrade over the likes of Enzio, his pace alone is enough to cause trouble. His skill and creativity should fit in to what Ian Burchnall wants to see. Very happy!
  23. I think people keep forgetting about Lewis Knight when they talk about strikers, we have Kyle Wootton, Elisha Sam, Tyreace Palmer and Knight. One more striker would be a good call, someone more natural on goal but speed isn't the issue Notts has. It's 10-15+ goal scorers. I think Knight could get a few next season, perhaps even 8 in total but it all depends on if we play him and how he copes. He needs to be in and around the first team, anything less wouldn't do.
  24. Good tie for Notts to start off with, but the TV money isn't what I thought it might be. At least double or triple that, guess BT Sports aren't in it to make the league fairer.
  25. Stockport County aren't leaving this league at the end of the season, so they're welcome to him. Very average striker, most of his goals come in braces.
