  1. McDonnell 3 - Made some important saves in the first half but should have done better for both goals Brindley 2 - The bloke simply could not be bothered Rawlinson 5 - The poor guy had to make a run down the wing to try and get us going forward Long 5 - Looked nervous at first. Was fine with the ball at his feet. A tough introduction Kelly-Evans 4 - Tried but looked uncomfortable Roberts 4 - Tried to get us going but couldn't Rose 2 - Just drop him please. Offers nothing Doyle 3 - Couldn't pass a ball today Boldewijn 4 - No real opening for him Dennis 4 - Not really in the game before being subbed Wootton 5 - Tried to bring others into play and battled away without nothing coming off O'Brien 4 - Offered nothing when he came on Crawford & Osborne N/A - Not enough time to warrant a rating
  2. We've got to go into this one with a more positive mindset then the one against Woking and Dover. Don't be afraid to run at the opposition and push forward in numbers. When Enzio and Roberts ran at Woking's defence, it got them on the back foot,. Our decision making in both areas of the pitch has to be better. We have to be quicker passing the ball and quicker with our decision making. We need to get it to our danger men faster. More link up play like the one that created the Wootton and O'Brien chances. I've seen that Dave Challinor said that we didn't play well against Woking and that they should have won. Whilst I agree I don't think we played that great, did he not see the two chances we had through Wootton and O'Brien in the 1st half which would have put us 2-0 up. Not just these chances but the Callum Roberts miss in the second half. This, to me, seems like a way of aggravating us a bit
  3. Birmingham City 1-0 Sheffield Wednesday Charlton Athletic 2-1 Luton Town Ipswich Town 1-1 Oxford United (Joker) Fleetwood Town 0-1 Portsmouth Leyton Orient 0-0 Oldham Athletic Carlisle United 2-2 Morecambe Boreham Wood 1-0 Yeovil Town Woking 1-1 Stockport County
  4. Bird is cup-tied for our FA Trophy game against Aveley. Lacey has a slight injury, Turner is out for a while and McCrory still has 2 weeks. We needed cover And can we stop with the Alan Sheehan stuff. Be realistic Owen Betts isn't ready either. Cover was needed
  5. Roberts and Regan on the same pitch would be something to behold
  6. 2 or 3 seasons would be good. If or when an offer comes in, we must evaluate it properly and make sure it is the right deal for the club as well as Callum
  7. Notts County returned to the National League playoff places thanks to a 1-1 draw with Woking at Meadow Lane. The hosts started brightly with Kyle Wootton being denied by Craig Ross and Kristian Dennis firing narrowly wide from the edge of the area in the 13th minute. Woking, however, opened the scoring five minutes into the second half when Dave Tarpey's cross was turned in by Max Kretzschmar. The home side missed a good chance to equalise when Callum Roberts cleared the bar in the 68th minute but they were level two minutes later when Dennis fired in. With only three games going ahead in the National League on Saturday, County's point was enough to move them into sixth place.

  8. McDonnell 6 - Did well on corners to combat the physical threat and made a good save 2nd half Brindley 5 - If you want a sunbed to lay on for 90 minutes tell me. On occasions the guy is on it but games like today he isn't Rawlinson 6 - Did alright to battle Alex Wall and showed a bit of urgency in the 2nd half. Nobody gave him an option to pass to Bird 7 - Comfortable on the ball. Always trying to get us going and provided an option when playing out from the back. A really solid game. Kelly-Evans 5 - Not on it today. Lethargic first half and didn't get forward enough Roberts 9 - Best player on the pitch by a country mile. Everything went through him. A delight to watch Rose 5 - Poor passes and not effective enough. Made one good pass for the penalty that should have been but on the whole nothing startling O'Brien 5 - Good link up play first 15 minutes then just got lost Boldewijn 5 - Not much of note until he started to run at players in the 2nd half. Shouldn't have taken him 70 minutes to do so though Dennis 7 - Always looked to make a run, linked up the play well and got the equaliser Wootton 5 - Not a great game for Kyle. Poor first touch and should have easily scored after like 10 minutes
  9. Middlesbrough 1-1 Luton Town Preston North End 2-1 Millwall Gillingham 0-0 Doncaster Rovers (Joker) Bristol Rovers 1-0 Blackpool Plymouth Argyle 2-2 Crewe Alexandra Cambridge United 1-1 Bradford City Solihull Moors 1-1 Hartlepool United Wrexham 1-0 Torquay United
  10. Notts 1-0 Morecambe - December 6th 2008. 2008/09 season Sean Canham with the only goal. Got tickets from school
  11. Opposition fanbases or fans or just a fan being totally stupid. Maidenhead singing we were rejected by Forest. Bromley fans telling us we were salty even though we beat them. A Halifax fan saying our away support is bad then using Halifax taking 600 to Notts (the away game everyone looks out for and in the summer) and us bringing 500 to them (4 days before Christmas and a game that doesn't stand out) as the example. A Dagenham fan telling us we were salty despite being annoyed at our own team. Any chant that involves Forest from opposition fans. Referees and officials who at times, just make up the rules as they go along. Opposition players who are just desperate for a free kick
  12. Blackburn Rovers 2-0 Hull City Brentford 2-1 Leeds United Coventry City 1-1 Portsmouth (Joker) Shrewsbury Town 0-1 Accrington Stanley Newport County 1-0 Walsall Northampton Town 1-0 Swindon Town Eastleigh 0-1 AFC Fylde Harrogate Town 2-2 Yeovil Town
  13. Worked Monday-Friday. Had a bad morning on Thursday so I threw my safety knife at a wall and the protector on top of the knife that protects it shattered. Friday night and Yeovil away yesterday with @meg_walshx was brilliant. Needed Saturday so much
  14. McDonnell 8 - Made some important saves and including an awesome one late on Kelly-Evans 9 - Defended resiliently and gave Remeao Hutton a hard time (Hutton was Yeovil's biggest outlet) Rawlinson 9 - A pure champion. Great with the ball at his feet. Scored and got an assist too Lacey 8 - Headed everything out. As cool as 10 cucumbers never mind just 1 McCrory 7 - Stuck to his responsibilites in the 1st half and resolute as the 3rd CB in the 2nd half Shields 6 - Battled away first half before being subbed O'Brien 8 - Controlled the flow of Notts' tempo before we had to change things around. Part of the defensive resistant second half Crawford 8 - Ran his socks, boots and studs off and was absolutely shattered by the end. Continuenly closed down Hutton, got us going on the counter attack on occasions, linked up the play really well and should have had a penalty when through on goal Osborne 7 - Pressed well first half against Dicko. Sometimes got his feet muddled up but linked up well with DKE and made runs with the ball into the area Dennis 7 - Always looking for them runs and chased down the Yeovil defence Thomas 4 - Did his best to get involved in the game and link up the play. Was stupid for the red Brindley 7 - Part of the resistance 2nd half. Cleared it when needed Wootton 8 - Added energy to our attack and got in some good positions resulting in a goal. Started us on the counter attack and held the ball up excellently. Got back to defend too Rose 7 - Defended well when he came on. Resistant Rose A truly brilliant performance. Warriors
  15. Stoke City 1-0 Charlton Athletic Huddersfield Town 2-1 Queens Park Rangers Burton Albion 1-1 Gillingham (Joker) Shrewsbury Town 0-0 Milton Keynes Colchester United 2-2 Plymouth Argyle Morecambe 1-1 Mansfield Town Bromley 1-1 Solihull Moors Hartlepool United 2-1 Aldershot Town
  16. Since Lacey signed we've had 8 league games, keeping clean sheets in 5 of them. He has also allowed Michael Doyle to have more freedom in the centre, so he doesn't have to keep coming deep to collect the ball and that helps us get going on the front foot. Rawlinson looks a lot more confident bringing the ball out of defence and has been a rock this season. This begs the question, is there anyway back for Ben Turner into the starting x1 picture?
  17. Sam Allardyce First match I went to, Ian McParland was in charge but I didn't go again till 2011. Few matches in 2010/11 with Ince in charge, then consistently going to matches, it was Mad Dog
  18. Chic - Freak out Always thought it said AFRICAAAAAAA
  19. Got through this week at work. Spent the weekend with @meg_walshx. Celebrated her 20th birthday on Friday. Bought her tickets for Heathers the musical which is taking place in July. Went to Frankie & Benny's. Match yesterday. Good win Today, we both met up with @Chris in Nottingham. Had food and had a good time catching up
  20. Fitzsimons 8 - For all that has gone on this week, his professionalism was absolute first class. Credit to the club today. Two good saves along with a penalty save. Ross Fitzsimons baby Brindley 6 - Sometimes chose the wrong option when passing but solid enough Rawlinson 7 - Dealt with Denton the bean pole. Brought the ball out of defence Lacey 7 - Solid again. Dealt with Denton. Didn't really have to deal with Boden as he wasn't there Kelly-Evans 8 - Superb. Made runs forward. Did well defensively and passing was good Roberts 8 - Excellent first home game. Brilliant passing and carried the ball well. Cracking assist for KW. Pure sauce O'Brien 8 - Kept it ticking. Made the passing and the football flow so nicely Rose 6 - Solid. Better overall with his distribution Boldewijn 7 - Scored a belter, won the ball back and ran at the opposition. He's good at that. When he runs at the oppositions defence they don't know what to do. Carries the ball forward so well Thomas 6 - Didn't have the best of first halves but battled away. Ended up being K-dub's show Wootton 7 - 2 goals and was much better 2nd half. Got into the game more and good positioning for the second goal Crawford 6 - Shored the midfield up to help us see the game out Bird 6 - Clearance at the back post helped us to a clean sheet. Like Crawford helped us see the game out Dennis 6 - Not much for him to do as we were already 3 up and game was over
  21. Charlton Athletic 1-2 Barnsley Sheffield Wednesday 0-2 Millwall Bolton Wanderers 2-1 Tranmere Rovers Portsmouth 1-1 Sunderland (Joker) Port Vale 2-2 Salford City Crawley Town 2-0 Scunthorpe United Wrexham 1-1 Dagenham & Redbridge Barnet 1-1 Hartlepool United
  22. Thanks very much Alfie May for scoring for Cheltenham late on
  23. No need to be so cautious this weekend. Into them from the off Notts. Speed it up and make the runs. We need to get that knowhow going, of where and when teammates are going to make a run when a player receives the ball. As for Ardley, play the wingers as wingers and not inside CAM's. We saw at Halifax and at home to Maidenhead when we play our wide men in their proper playing positions, they can produce their best. If Ardley is urging us to take risks and be brave and telling us intensity in training is high, then let's do it on the pitch. We know this team can do it so go out there and put it into a game. Let's do it consistently in the game as well, and not in spells.
