  1. Goalkeepers Harry Isted - 24, Put in a cracking performance for Wealdstone against us last season. Good reflexes. CB'S Ben Hockenhull - 19, Had a good season with Brentford's B team and formerly of Manchester United. Good in the air and is useful with the ball at his feet Jacob Bedeau - 21, Free agent having been released by Scunthorpe. Good on the ball and had Championship interest last season. Will probs be out of our reach Joe Grayson- 24, Released by Blackburn. Will help us play out from the back if played in central defence. Can also play centre mid if needed LB'S Harry Boyes - 19, Impressed on loan at Bradford (Park Avenue) last season and is good going forward. Think he was the Premier League left-back we were going to sign on loan last season, before things broke down. Depends on what Sheffield United's plans are for him Adam Crookes - 23, Local-ish having played at Forest for a while and Lincoln-born. Released by Port Vale. Can play at left-back or the left side at centre-back Sam Hart 24 - 24, Tough tackling defender recently let go by Southend. Likes to get forward and can play on the wing CM'S Ryan East 22, Former Reading Under 23s captain, who's had sporadic appearances on the bench the last few seasons Wes Fonguck - 23, Energetic Barnet midfielder who can run forward with the ball and link play. Will help us create Scott Burgess - 23, Transer listed by Port Vale. Can also play on the wing. Creative but lacking physicality Tom Lapslie - 25, Tenacious and willing to run and press. Recently released by Colchester Ryan Trevitt - 18, Bald call this one but he's had a good first season in Brentford's B team. Likes to get forward and can chip in with goals too Kyle Barker - 20, Defensive midfielder who is comfortable in possession. Still on the books at Posh George Marsh - 22, Deep-lying Tottenham midfielder who is strong in the tackle and plays in the holding midfield role. Had a solid loan spell at Leyton Orient in 2019-20 Wingers Dan Mooney - 21, Thought he did well for Alty when he played against us last season. Likes to run at players. Fits our model Calvin Miller - 23, Impressed when Burchnall came in. With the statement saying we're looking to sign one of the loanees and with Rawlinson being offered a new deal instead of going for Ellis, then I presume Miller is the man Harry Pritchard - 28, Released by Bradford and could be useful with his versatility, as he can play on the wing and in central midfield. Did well at this level with Maidenhead. Strikers Andy Dallas - 21, Cambridge forward who we're interested in. Scored 12 in 25 last season for Weymouth. Has bags of pace. Still young which fits our model Olufela Olomola - 23, Free agent since leaving Scunthorpe. Has chipped in with goals in previous spells at Yeovil and Carlisle Cameron Archer - 19, Aston Villa youngster who scored 5 goals in 12 starting appearances last season (including 16 sub appearances) for Solihull. Very quick Josh Walker - 23, Offered a new deal by Barnet. Had a good season in 2019-20 but I believe was hampered by injury last season. 2019-20 season consisted of 8 goals in the league and 5 in the FA Trophy. Promising Michael Tait - 20, Just been let go by Villa. Can play up front or can drop into attacking midfield. Contributed with goals in Aston Villa's U23 team Danny Cashman - 20, Just left Brighton. Can also play attacking midfield and on the wing, as well as his normal striker role. Likes to bring the ball forward and run at defenders. Only 5"6 but has good technical ability and movement. Recently said if he did drop down the pyramid, he knows he would have to improve his physical game. Some I've left out as I don't think we'd sign them. Some of these have stood out this season in the National League and have Football League interest. Dani Orsi-Dadomo, Sonny Carey, Ben Whitfield, Rhys Oates, Isaac Olaofe, David Ajiboye, Kabongo Tshimanga, Dan Jarvis, Joe Tomlinson. Jack Earing would be on that list but he's just gone to Walsall.
  2. Notts County 3-2 Chesterfield - The most amazing of finishes
  3. This season feels like it's gone on for ages but we've reached the play-offs at last. Just thought I'd ask you all, what are you worried about and, what you can take comfort in, with our team and maybe with the potential route to Ashton Gate. For me, I think we can see positives in the fact we are moving the ball a lot quicker and the players have bought into the way Burchnall wants to play. We're very fluid and don't really stick to our normal roles in our formation, meaning it can be difficult for the opposition to man mark or track their man. Allowing Ruben a free role to create and support Wootton, causes teams all sorts of trouble. O'Brien is being used a lot better in my opinion, being allowed to make them runs into the box from deep. Reeves is playing a bit further forward and his through ball passes and long range shooting ability is has helped us. Calvin Miller has been superb on loan and his direct running is a thorn in the side of opposition teams. Mark Ellis can also bring it out of defence if he wants to. However, my biggest worry is, in games we go through spells where we dither about, make silly and stupid decisions and we panic. As IB said yesterday, we need to trust ourselves more and not rush into launching it when we go through these spells. Another thing is our clinical edge in front of goal because, we should have been ahead before they scored yesterday and we probably should have won by more against Weymouth. You won't be allowed to get away with that in the play-offs. We've also got to be ready and want it more, and to clear it out our box when crosses come in, because we can be suspect to them sometimes.
  4. The 3rd goal is simply beautiful
  5. Notts County 3-0 Weymouth - The perfect return
  6. Notts County 3-0 Weymouth - The perfect return
  7. The eve of the return to Meadow Lane
  8. Thanks @DangerousSausage for organising it all this year. This has been the toughest year for it, as for long spells I didn't believe I would win as I was 3rd for so long. Credit to @Dripsey3 and @Megan_Elizax for playing an awesome game this season as well.
  9. Blackburn Rovers 2-1 Birmingham City Derby County 1-0 Sheffield Wednesday Queens Park Rangers 2-1 Luton Town Carlisle United 2-0 Walsall Port Vale 2-2 Mansfield Town Salford City 2-0 Leyton Orient Halifax Town 2-1 Boreham Wood Wrexham 2-0 Yeovil Town (Joker)
  10. So glad you've posted this as it can open a lot of cans of beans in terms of debate Slocombe - Keep - Has his moments of sloppiness but has kept us in games with tremendous saves. Experienced hand Pilling - Keep - Fine back up to have. Good shot stopper just needs work on his kicking. Saves penalties as well Steele - Get rid - On a deal till the end of the season is fine. Nothing more. He's 36 and we've got Brooks coming on strong Kelly-Evans - Keep - Grafts his socks off and has the fight in him that we need. Work on his forward play and we've got ourselves a player Brindley - Keep - Good player on his day but needs to step it up again, now DKE has got back to being the #1 right-back. Intriguing battle lies ahead Lacey - Keep - Best ball playing centre half we have. On his day, he is a class above NL level but would help if we had a fitness coach at the club Rawlinson - Keep - An absolute warrior at the back for us. Hasn't had it great recently and sometimes isn't too good on the ball but is a fighter Turner - Get rid - Too many errors in him and slow. You can tell since the start of this calendar year he's been playing his last days of his career McCrory - Get rid - May be popular in the dressing room but if we are going to challenge for top spot consistently next term, we can't have a guy who spends the entire season on the treatment table Chicksen - Get rid - He may have been a regular in the side recently but he's not good enough over the full course of a season. Mistake prone and too inconsistent for a promotion winning team Barnett - Get rid - Another who is too mistake prone and I worry about every time an opposition team run down his side Doyle - Get rid - Maybe keep on as a coach. However, we need younger legs in midfield and whilst he has his days of brilliance, we can't keep relying on a 39 year old Doyle from season to season, to pull the strings Reeves - Get rid - I don't think we have a choice with Jake. I reckon he'll still be here next season due to his contract. His style of sideways first has to be binned. We bought him in to be the guy who was going to help the attack and make runs forward. Been so disappointing. O'Brien - Get rid - Started off his Notts career well but his influence in games has waned. His best years are behind him and I don't really know how he impacts games anymore. Boldewijn - Get rid - On his day, he is an excellent player but we haven't seen that Enzio at Notts. So much excitement but has never hit them high levels we expected. We need more consistent players if we are to be promoted. Can't have players, play well 1 in 8 and be ok with it. Roberts - Keep - Is this even worth an explanation? Sam - Keep - This was the toughest decision. He has been inconsistent but he's now had that year of getting used to English football. Could be useful in a front 3 if nurtured Rodrigues - Keep - A fine player with quick feet and has a moment of magic in him when we need it. Has had a year to get used to the rigors of English football. When we get going, he will be a fine baller Wootton - Keep - Our talisman this season and whilst he hasn't been great of late, he needs competition and good strike partners like he did when he had Dennis and Thomas Knight - Keep - A rough diamond and one for the future. Has positives about his play like his running in behind opposition defences. Can be nurtured and coached to work in a two up top, as well as play in a front three. In terms of loanees, Ellis is the only real one I'd potentially look at but that's a stretch. I think Wolfe would have been decent, if he wasn't so unfortunate with injuries. Showed glimpses of promise but never got a good run in the team. Knowles is not strong enough and is too greedy. More raw than an uncooked steak. Griffiths was a rushed signing at a time when we were running out of centre-mids and Crewe will want him back anyway.
  11. Steele 5 - Could have saved the goal but did make some decent saves when needed Rawlinson 4 - Got up the line a few times but some simple errors and lack of urgency to get to the ball first almost allowed Alty in Ellis 5 - Comfortable with the ball at his feet Turner 4 - Was ok in the first half with his passing, trying to link play with the strikers but still got an error in him Brindley 4 - Decent first 20 making runs forward, then looked bored sh**less for the rest of the game Reeves 4 - Too many sideways passes again. No cutting edge Doyle 4 - Same as Reeves. Error prone in the first half Barnett 4 - Tried to get balls into the box but if he's a footballer then I've got a chance still Boldewijn 4 - I think he knows he's going. Just going through the motions Wootton 4 - It's almost sad how out of form he is. Needs someone to pick up the pieces from him. Oh Kristian and Wes, where are you? Rodrigues 6 - The only player who was going to make something happen for us. May as well have done it on his own Chicksen/Knight/Knowles 4 - Didn't contribute anything to the game. Knowles seemed absolutely desperate either to give the ball away or get sent off Off to the seaside next season for Grimsby and Southend
