  1. It will happen again, I suspect but if the league manages to get completed safely than that's the main thing.
  2. I do feel its something the club could've kept to themselves if I am perfectly honest, knowing what some of our cry baby fans can be like.
  3. Welcome to PON, @RetroPie.
  4. Coventry City 2-2 Blackburn Rovers Bristol City 0-1 Swansea City Accrington Stanley 0-0 Bristol Rovers Lincoln City 1-3 Ipswich Town Joker Oxford United 2-0 Swindon Town Morecambe 1-0 Forest Green Rovers Salford City 0-0 Crawley Town Stevenage 0-1 Leyton Orient
  5. It does provide a more detailed insight into what is happening at the club, it will be somewhat of a comfort for fans to know.
  6. Millwall 1-0 Luton Town Norwich City 2-1 Birmingham City [Joker] Burton Albion 0-1 Rochdale Northampton Town 2-2 Swindon Town Grimsby Town 2-1 Harrogate Town Tranmere Rovers 0-1 Leyton Orient Bradford City 2-0 Walsall Wealdstone 1-0 Chesterfield
  7. A lot of players declined rapidly within the second half, otherwise they would've been rated more highly despite the shock loss. Alex Lacey, Damien McCrory and Doyle allowed pressure to come back. I don't think Sam Slocombe was at his best either.
  8. During the next EFL transfer window I think it would be a good idea to take a look, right now Notts would have to rely on the loan market and if there's better options out there. I wouldn't have though Knowles would have been signed from a nearby rival. I do feel a striker could make a huge difference if he had pace and good finishing. But I would welcome a winger far more than any other position. Any player that can just run with the ball and kill those moments in the game whereby someone direct could remove any signs of pressure.
  9. Birmingham City 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday Rotherham United 1-3 Norwich City Portsmouth 2-2 Doncaster Rovers Charlton Athletic 1-0 Wigan Athletic Walsall 1-2 Exeter City [Joker] Mansfield Town 0-2 Bradford City Weymouth 0-1 King's Lynn Solihull Moors 2-1 Boreham Wood
  10. At this point I would take a draw, lower the expectations a little. We went from the pre-season where fans overreacted, to being undefeated in 3 back to back games. Win a 4th and those doom and gloom mongers will be hyping us up and getting disappointed again when their bubble bursts. I do feel Notts are more than good enough to win. Provided Wootton is fit, I have every faith he can score. I feel Doyle, Reeves, Enzio, Roberts, Thomas etc, are all capable of chipping in.
  11. Pickford has the experience on the international scene though, Henderson will get that chance eventually. If he replaces de Gea [who is part of United's downfall] he should get that opportunity. He's only 23 years old, whereas I don't want him being thrown in for the sake of it. Pickford was rushed into the national setup, there is a lot of pressure attached to that but I think Henderson will get a chance to come in. Pope has the experience in years, but honestly I don't rate him that much.
  12. Unknown youngster, it's not necessarily a bad thing. Given game time and having Michael Doyle by his side or even Jake Reeves he should be fine.
  13. I am with @Chris on this, but I do agree that Jordan Pickford is in shocking form. He has been ever since he joined Everton.
  14. It's wins like tonight which highlights teams good enough to chase for Promotion. I don't want to sound like I am getting ahead of myself, there's still a long way, but after Dover this is the perfect start that we couldn't have asked for. The game had a draw all over it, yet Kyle Wootton managed to get the ball across the line dead late into the game. It's results like this which our fans will also miss seeing live, imagine the reaction to winning the 3rd game of 4 in the 94th minute. It really doesn't get any better than that. Notts just needs to improve away from home, confidence should do that.
  15. Its good to be welcoming you @Dave Dornan, welcome to PON.
  16. Do we not have any first-year pros to fill in the gap? I think it would be wise to wait for better quality, unless a player is already identified and ready to sign.
  17. Barnet are not a slow team by any means, they could be dangerous on the break. They've got a more attacking minded team IMO, I feel we need to throw ourselves at them. It could get feisty at times too. Michael Doyle will have to behave himself. If it doesn't end up with a few cards, I would be surprised.
  18. @super_ram @DangerousSausage: I have amended @jimbob's predictions to include the Carlisle United fixture, it would be a shame that it would end up missed. Accrington Stanley 0-1 Rochdale Swindon Town 3-1 AFC Wimbledon Cambridge United 2-2 Newport County Port Vale 2-0 Carlisle United [Joker] Walsall 2-1 Colchester United Bromley 0-1 Torquay United Maidenhead United 1-2 Hartlepool United Yeovil Town 2-0 Wrexham
  19. Welcome to PON @colin savage, any relation to Robbie?
  20. Despite what people say, I find Sheffield and Leeds to be very friendly cities. I've been made to feel at home there, way more than I have in Nottingham.
  21. Yes, I will be watching the live stream. I am locked in my apartment due to Uni rules and, I don't have much else to do.
  22. Isn't he injury prone? Good signing for Barnet but I would rather sign someone who is upcoming.
  23. Choosing from the 3 options, striker, winger or centre midfielder I would rather see a winger who can play as a secondary striker come in.
  24. If the squad can handle the frustration of last Saturday, work harder and be more creative on goal. Then the result could be completely different, I don't feel Notts can afford to lose the first two opening games. We need to get Callum Roberts working well with whoever starts behind him, and the midfield to work harder to support the strikers.
  25. Poor start to the season, game sounded like it had a draw all over it. Defensively Notts sounded to be okay until they switched off in those final minutes, it's always set pieces.
