  1. Glad he's gone. He is a very limited player. He's not brave enough with the ball, always passing back. Throws in the odd tackle but nowhere near enough to be regarded as a battling tough presence in midfield. At left back he may have looked comfortable, but he never really got forward enough and helped out the winger.
  2. Glad that Hewitt and Milsom have been binned off. Two woeful footballers Stead is too old and needed to move on Wouldn't be surprised if O'Brien has activated his relegation clause.
  3. https://mobile.twitter.com/ftbl_tom/status/1128723612389842944 First ground: Meadow Lane Last ground: County Ground Best ground: Wembley Worst ground: Whaddon Road
  4. Kane Hemmings if I had to choose one

  6. Squad unity is a key thing. It's one of the reasons why Orient went up. Same with Lincoln and Macc before them. Need goalscorers and a bit of physicality as well. Need to be intelligent with the ball when going forward. Experience mixed with young players or players in prime age (25,26,27). Orient had youngsters like Josh Koroma, Dan Happe, Jordan Maguire-Drew and Myles Judd. They had experience in the mould of Craig Clay, Dean Brill, Charlie Lee and Josh Coulson. A goalscorer in Macauley Bonne. Lincoln had Sean Raggett and Alex Woodyard. Experience in Matt Rhead, Nathan Arnold, Luke Waterfall and Alan Power We can't be defensive dot com either. Don't sit back and take a point for 46 games. No Need a team with goals in it. This will take a while. A lot of issues with the club. Need a scouting system, money spent wisely and intelligently, a proper youth system, due diligence done on managers and not just rush into an appointment without thought. Also need a training ground but that needs to be done over time.
  7. GK - Experienced. Decent shot stopper and someone able to command his box RB - Has pace and gets forward to support his man. Michael Harriman? Was linked with us in Jan but don't think he would drop 2 leagues. Tony McMahon who was also linked to us in Jan. CB - A commanding centre-half who headers everything away. Not afraid for a battle but can actually defend. Chris Robertson, Peter Clarke, David Stephens. Charlie Raglan has been released by Oxford. Been saying to sign him for ages. LB - Can get forward and someone who an actually defend unlike DJ. Johnny Hunt and Joe Martin both been released by Stevenage. Hunt played at National League level before with Chester CM - Someone who can battle and win the ball back. Who is not afraid of a fight and can link the defence and attack. Need height as well. Liam Nolan is experienced at non-league level. 6'3, good on the ball as well. Won promotion with Accy in 2018. Emmanuel Osadebe just been released by Cambridge. Tall, quick and can play deeper or further forward. James Dunne released by Swindon. Marcus Bean as well by Wycombe. Dan Gardner would be a brilliant signing. Oldham released him W - Jordan Williams has been released by Rochdale. 16 goals for Barrow in National League from the wing from Early 2016 to 17. Sam Barratt did well at Maidenhead. Didn't break into the Southend team last season. Can play CAM as well. ST - Need a big man up front who can actually hold the ball up. Inih Effiong from Dover. 6'3, decent goal record. Already mentioned Richie Bennett in a previous topic. Other strikers to look for include Alfie Rutherford who scored 13 for Havant & Waterlooville last season despite them finishing 23rd. Matty Stevens is on the transfer list at Posh. Scored goals at Kettering and Slough on loan. Could be one to watch. Marc Richards and Stuart Beavon are experienced options we can look at up front.
  8. Players under contract GK - Fitzsimons RB - Tootle, Oxlade-Chamberlain CB - Bird LB - Dunn CM - Rose, O'Brien, Doyle, Patching, Crawford, Kellett RM - Boldewijn ST - Hemmings, Dennis Out of contract CB - Duffy, Brisley, Ward LB - Jones, Evina, Milsom CM - Husin, Vaughan, Hewitt LM - Alessandra ST - Stead I couldn't find if Campbell, Etete, Howes, Culverwell and Osborne were under contract If these players are set to go, who would you think about replacing them with. We need a lot as I think we will get rid of quite a few. As previously discussed in this topic, the players we wanted to keep and let go. Who would you want to fill them positions?
  9. https://www.nottinghampost.com/sport/football/football-news/fresh-consortium-working-overtake-south-2846759 Rumoured a few weeks ago. Now in the race to takeover Notts
  10. I tend to read ExAgent's Twitter as he did get quite a bit right last season. Would definitely take Bennett. Can still do a job in League 2 nevermind non league. Scored a decent amount for Barrow a few years ago
  11. Schofield 6 - Made some crucial saves but once we it went to 1-1, he had no chance as it turned into Gillingham part 2 Rose 6 - Got forward ok but he just isn't a right-back Stubbs 5 - Was solid in the first half when we had to go to two at the back. That header though. Got overwhelmed when things turned Bird 6 - Will becoming a better player with time. Start next season Brisley 4 - Was doing ok till he got injured. Thanks for all the times you booted it out of play and for slide tackling a shot against Macclesfield. You will be missed Milsom 2 - Just go. Just go O'Brien 6 - The usual burst of energy and worked hard but was in vain Doyle 4 - Not great with his passing, gave away the ball constantly in the first half Vaughan 5 - Best part of his spell at Notts was the opening 45. When did we sign that Vaughan? Shame he disappeared like his hairline in the second half Hemmings 6 - Scored the penalty. Got into some alright positions. Thanks for your goals Kane Mackail-Smith 8 - Left everything out there and won the penalty. Constantly chasing down lost causes Subs Boldewijn 5 - Started ok but faded as things turned, He's got ability but if an offer comes in for him over 100k, get rid Stead 3 - Happy holidays Jon. Enjoy the beach Ardley 5 - Solid in defence first half but crumbled second. Said at half time, the only way we were going to score was a penalty. He cares but Darrell Clarke is waiting
  12. Welcome back @samwatto2008
  13. Speaking to a mate of mine who's a Stags fan who went through 5 years in non-league. He said ownership is the probably the key thing. You need a good owner and money to escape the National League. Need to take our chances whenever we get a crack at promotion as well. Luton and Grimsby failed in the play-offs 3 times.
  14. Keep Pierce Bird - Will turn into a really good player if given the right development Will Patching - Big potential. Passing is good and when he was in the side, he did look fine Tom Crawford - Done well on loan at Fylde and was tipped for good things when he was at Chester Jim O'Brien - Could do well with better players. Is good on the ball when he's on it Mitch Rose - Strong in the tackle. Keep Andy Kellett - Keep. A creative player when played in the CAM role and showed flashes of what he is capable of against Bury. Needs to improve his fitness Sam Osborne - Been superb in the reserves. Time for him to be involved in the first team Alex Howes, Remaye Campbell, Max Culverwell and Declan Dunn to stay on as well. Kion Etete will most likely go to Tottenham Out Ross Fitzsimons - Not good enough. Can't handle crosses or command his area Elliott Hewitt - Yates made him look class. In reality, he is woeful and has no clue what he is doing at all. Doesn't impact the game in any way. Can't tackle, can't pass, can't header. Matt Tootle - Sorry. He cares immensely but this season he's been poor. Frequent injuries and has been nowhere at the level he was in 17-18. Richard Duffy - As @Super_Danny_Allsopp says, he isn't as bad as people think but it's time to go Shaun Brisley - Can be a solid defender on his day but like Duffy it's time to go Dan Jones - No idea why he thought being a left-back was a good idea. Should have always been a winger. He can't defend Cedric Evina - Like Jones, can't defend Elliott Ward - Never really cared. On loads of money. Slow. Old. Released Rob Milsom - I could write a book on how bad he and Hewitt are. Passes back all the time. Another ineffectual player and is never brave enough with the ball Christian Oxlade-Chamberlain - He looked so out of depth at Oldham it was hard to believe David Vaughan - Well, well, well. Old. Passed it. Can't run. Too slow. Retire mate Noor Husin - Could be an ok player but hasn't showed it. Contract is up I believe. Got Patching and Crawford anyway Enzio Boldewijn - Hasn't lived up to the hype or the price tag. Not up for a fight. Basically a 300k Stephen McLaughlin Lewis Alessandra - Was only bothered when KN was here. Doesn't make runs. 3rd time in 4 years he's been relegated from L2. Says a lot Michael Doyle - Could be of help with his leadership but he only really had 3 or 4 good games. Where was the fighting, angry, blood and thunder Michael Doyle we have seen before? Legs have gone Jon Stead - Tries. Works hard. Battled for the club but too old now. Could tell he lost 5 yards of pace in pre season against Rolls-Royce. Should never have really been playing in the 18-19 season in the first place. Happy holidays Jon Not sure Kristian Dennis - Was out at first but has a good record at National League level. Leaning towards out Kane Hemmings - Was thinking keep as his link up play is decent and scoring 13 in a poor team is pretty good but I don't think he'd stick around for tier 5 football
  15. Forest Green Rovers 1-1 Exeter City (Joker) Milton Keynes 0-0 Mansfield Town Macclesfield Town 2-0 Cambridge United Doncaster Rovers 1-1 Coventry City Plymouth Argyle 2-2 Scunthorpe United Southend United 1-2 Sunderland Hull City 0-1 Bristol City Rotherham United 1-1 Middlesbrough Stoke City 1-2 Sheffield United
  16. https://mobile.twitter.com/goal/status/1122823627945148417 GK - Bialkowski, Nelson, Carroll RB - Tootle, Freeman CB - Edwards, Audel, Sodje LB - Sheehan, Bola CM - Yates, Liddle, McGregor, Bishop, J.Hughes, Ravenhill W - Judge, Grealish, Campbell-Ryce, Ismail ST - L.Hughes, Ameobi, Spencer
  17. Cutting the amount of teams in the academy down could help Notts get money for youth players. Starting at under 16 level where they decide on scholarships. The academy system needs changing, otherwise we'll just keep getting rid of players for cheese. Also, I think it's important to only choose a select few youth players who you think are ready because, you don't want to be flooding the first team with youth players, as some might not be ready for first team footy. This topic is something I've mentioned in my piece about Notts.
  18. Schofield 7 - Some good saves. Mostly comfortable due to Grimsby not bothering Tootle 6 - Good supporting runs down the flank. First touch a bit dodgy Stubbs 7 - Made a superb run out of defence in the first half and was on the whole, very good. Brisley 7 - He's fine in the middle of a back three, with two defenders either side pushing up and taking the ball out of defence. Headed virtually everything away Bird 8 - Took the ball out of defence and did so with confidence. Hopefully will become a decent ball-playing centre-half. It's his goal not a Harry Clifton (og). Give it to Pierce Milsom 6 - Like Tootle, made supporting runs. Worked hard Doyle 7 - Put better crosses in than before. Almost scored from a corner. Made crucial interceptions O'Brien 7 - Ran about like he normally does and helped out when Toots and Milly got forward Rose 8 - Has played really well in these last few games and keeps Notts ticking over. If we go down, he will be crucial in getting us back up Hemmings 6 - Tried to win what he could in the air. A quiet game from Kane but has done terrific this season to score 13 in a poor team. Mackail-Smith 9 - Running, running, running, running. Scored. Step inside and I'm falling in love, cos I just can't seem to get enough of, du du du du du du du, CRAIG MACKAIL-SMITH Subs Stead + Gomis 5 - Came on when we were in cruise control. Gomis could have had a goal. Ardley 7 - Better display but why couldn't we do this 4 weeks ago
