  1. We have one of the larger squads in the league I believe. Plenty of competition for places which is important as it keeps everyone on their toes and makes sure that no players are slacking Also vital we have squad depth for these stages in the season when the fixtures build up and injuries become more frequent Not just that but we have strength in depth too. For example in midfield we have Michael Doyle (anchor man), Jim O'Brien and Regan Booty (Forward thinking passers) and Mitch Rose (the presence and the ball winner). We also have Tom Crawford who is energetic and likes to roam forward too. Up front as well is another area. Kyle Wootton (the target man), Wes Thomas and Nathan Tyson (pace and pressing), Kristian Dennis (poacher). The quality is unlike many in this league (no disrespect but not many teams have our strength in depth). Some in our squad shouldn't be playing at this level but Notts and Ardley have the pulling power at this level to attract. GK - Slocombe, Fitzsimons, Kean (if you can count him) RB - Brindley, Kelly-Evans, Tootle CB - Turner, Rawlinson, Lacey, Bird LB - McCrory, Bakayogo CM - Doyle, O'Brien, Booty, Rose, Crawford W - Boldewijn, Shields, Osborne ST - Wootton, Dennis, Thomas, Tyson Out on loan: Dunn, Howes, Campbell, Culverwell
  2. Welcome to PON @Bromley1972
  3. Slocombe 7 - Made crucial saves in the second half when Fleet piled on the pressure. His usual commanding self Brindley 6 - Some decent runs forward. Solid defensively. Quiet afternoon to be fair Rawlinson 7 - Was involved in the carnage in the 93rd minute. Got the flick on (him or the Ebbsfleet player did) for the 3rd. Solid as ever Turner 9 - Resisted the Ebbsfleet pressure early in the first half. Won almost everything. That goal. What a king McCrory 6 - Struggled with Myles Weston at first but once he settled down he was fine. Had a busy afternoon Boldewijn 7 - Excellent going forward and did well defensively too. Always believe in Enzio Rose 6 - Much better than he was against Hartlepool. His type of game. A bit better with his passing and was always involved in trying to win it back Doyle 7 - Helped connect defence and attack. Made some crucial interceptions and tackles winning the ball back Booty 8 - The guy is pure class. Wand of a left foot, forward passing machine. Wootton 8 - Sign the guy up. So consistent with his performances. Hold up play exceptional. Finishing very good too Thomas 8 - Ebbsfleet couldn't cope with him. The turn and run for the second goal was brilliant. Chased down lost causes Subs Tyson 6 - Lively when he came on. Involved in the carnage at the end
  4. Previous league experience. Was unlucky at Gills with injuries. Sounds like Gills fans liked him. Understandable to add a centre-back to the ranks as we need cover there heading into the part of the season, where the fixtures are stacking up again cos of the cup competitions and and where the pitches become bobbly meaning injuries can become more frequent.
  5. Very good job with this. Massive thank you for the opportunity to be able to work with Football Daily. Happy with how my part went. Great to hear from Les Bradd, Neal Ardley and Nick Richardson as well
  6. Good chance to get through. Ebbsfleet been in good form though of late. Making the trip on the coach. No doubt it'll feel like it's -38 or something in the away end
  7. I've literally been woeful for the last few weeks and I'm still 4th somehow
  8. Slocombe 6 - Couldn't do owt with the two goals. Deflection and a good finish. Steady second half Brindley 5 - Too casual at times. Played the easy ball on occasions Rawlinson 7 - Was good second half. His diagonal balls to Wootton and Thomas caused carnage amongst the Pools back line Turner 6 - Got sent to the shops for the 2nd goal. Did the dirty work second half and needed to, to keep it level McCrory 7 - Always offered that option going forward and played a class ball for Thomas to get us back in the game Shields 5 - Did ok. Some energetic bursts but sometimes lacked the run in behind. Subbed Rose 4 - Couldn't pass a parcel. Takes too long to decide what to do Doyle 5 - Very poor first half. Wayward passes a plenty. Improved a bit in the 2nd Boldewijn 6 - Always grafted to get the ball back. Nearly always involved in the action Wootton 7 - A presence and when we went direct second half, Hartlepool couldn't cope with him Thomas 7 - Beat the keeper to the ball for the first and a proper poacher's finish for the second. Game saviour. A lot better in the second half when we were more forward thinking. Caused problems Subs Booty 7 - Subbed on, gets an assist and makes us a lot better going forward. Our most creative midfielder Dennis N/A - Came on too late to make any impact

  12. Rotherham can do one. Third time I've had them to win on this, this season and third time they've let me down
  13. Slocombe 6 - Could have had a picnic. Didn't really have much to do Brindley 4 - Everytime the ball came to him his control was poor and didn't play it forward enough. Disappeared for the goal. Did ok first half but poor after that Turner 5 - Bit clunky at times. Felt like his feet were wrapped together with tape McCrory 5 - Ok ish. Decent with the ball at his feet Bakayogo 4 - Poor first touch. Another who had his legs tied together with tape. Shields 5 - Energetic as usual but lack of end product Rose 2 - Generous. It's not illegal to play a forward pass. Sideways and back all the time. Didn't do anything with the ball Doyle 4 - Tried to get us going but couldn't Boldewijn 5 - Good first half. Lively. Made good runs. Faded in the last few minutes Dennis 4 - Quiet. Too quiet. Didn't really get any service Wootton 6 - Always amongst the action going forward. Tried his hardest to get something Subs Booty 5 - Yeh. Woohoo lets play our best passer at left back. That'll influence the game. Thomas N/A - Got no service but meh Tyson N/A - Didn't really influence the game when he came on

  17. We've progressed really well. Things have settled down quite quickly and well and the team looks like it has now gelled. I would have taken a mid-table season at the start of the season but now Notts have got themselves into a position to challenge for promotion, let's go for it. We've improved game on game and we are controlling games, getting on the front foot and making chances. Neal Ardley's style of play has emerged from the team in the last month. We just need to get a bit quicker with our passing but on the whole it is pleasing to see a Notts team play a passing game very well. Despite having to sign players late, we have bought in some good players. Regan Booty could be a brilliant find. Exactly the sort of forward thinking and forward passing midfielder we've needed for years. Ben Turner, Connell Rawlinson and Sam Slocombe have been solid. Kyle Wootton has been great since he signed. We are playing to Kristian Dennis' strengths as well and that has meant his goals have gone up from last season. Promotion is not an unrealistic aim now. We have progressed better than I expected. We have our club back
  18. Slocombe 6 - Reassured us fans when he came and collected crosses and just making sure things didn't untangle in defence Kelly-Evans 5 - Many times in the first half his passes to Boldewijn were poor. Looked a little off the pace as he's just come back from injury Rawlinson 7 - Another solid performance. Becoming better with the ball at his feet Turner 6 - Relatively ok but sometimes would peel off his man. Thankfully, Rawlinson won everything McCrory 5 - Frustrating. Can tell he's only just come back from injury but everytime he got the ball in an advanced position, he went back Shields 8 - Superb. Constantly got down the wing. The Belper player who was marking him was shattered just after the hour mark because Sean had done him everytime. Bags of energy and pace. Getting better Doyle 6 - Lost his man for the goal but improved afterwards and took control and made tackles when needed Booty 7 - Class act. Defence splitting ball to Wootton for the goal. Some good interplay with other teammates. Will be a key player this season Boldewijn 7 - Scored a brilliant goal which he is capable of. Helped us get on the front foot. Made life difficult constantly for Belper Wootton 7 - A good goal. Hit the bar. A decent afternoon Dennis 6 - Should have had two goals. Intelligent runs but surprisingly for Denno, lacking the finish Subs Thomas 5 - Should have scored a 3rd for Notts Tyson 5 - Good to see him back from injury but then cleared the ball for Belper and then karate kicked one of their players
  19. Brentford 2-1 Millwall Charlton Athletic 2-2 Derby County Rotherham United 1-1 Oxford United Fleetwood Town 2-1 Burton Albion Doncaster Rovers 1-1 Bristol Rovers Northampton Town 1-2 Salford City Grimsby Town 1-1 Leyton Orient (Joker) Crewe Alexandra 2-1 Swindon Town
  20. Slocombe 7 - Not much to do but reliable when called up as usual. Good save from the free kick soon after we went 1-0 up Brindley 8 - That goal Rawlinson 8 - He's been fantastic and an integral part of our unbeaten run. Play a long ball forward and he'll just head it Turner 7 - Believe it was him who made a crucial clearance off the line and marked Jamie Reid out the game Bakayogo 7 - Very good attacking and defending. Settled down last few games Shields 7 - Best game in a Notts shirt. Bag of energy, constant threat. Assist for the 2nd goal Rose 6 - Struggled a little in the first half but grew into the game more as it went on. Doyle 7 - Marshalled the midfield superbly, constantly winning back the ball. Funny moment where he completely fooled the ref into thinking Reid had fouled him Boldewijn 6 - Work rate has improved. Starting to become better in winning the ball back when the opposition get it Wootton 6 - Brings others into play. Has the odd bad first touch but he's a really important player for us. If he continues this, get him on a permanent Dennis 7 - Another goal. Makes good runs and closes the opposition down well Subs Kelly-Evans 6 - Comfortable when he came on despite not playing in his natural position Booty 5 - Saw out the job Thomas 5 - Same as Regan
  21. As if two of the three national league fixtures on this round of prediction league have been postponed
