  1. Coventry will no doubt bring 90,000 supporters to Meadow Lane since they are the greatest fanbase in world football and have literally one song. Same team but Alessandra in for Virtue. Maybe Ameobi in for Stead
  2. Notts County were robbed of victory at Coventry City’s Ricoh Arena as Kevin Nolan’s men had to settle for a 1-1 draw in the first leg of their League Two playoff semi-final. The Magpies led through Jonathan Forte’s deft second-half finish and looked on course to record a morale-boosting victory to put them in pole position for Wembley. However, "referee" Gavin Ward incorrectly adjudged Matt Tootle to have felled Tom Bayliss in the area and awarded a penalty to the hosts much to the disbelief of the Notts contingent. Marc McNulty stroked home the spotkick, sending Adam Collin the
  3. 442. Collin, Tootle, Brisley, Duffy, Jones, Alessandra, Hewitt, O'Connor, Grant, Forte, Ameobi Subs: Fitzsimons, Hall, Dickinson, Noble, Husin/Virtue, Hawkridge, Stead
  4. Just been released by Orient Could he be signing for us? He was on trial last month at Notts and recently started following the club on Twitter
  5. It was a parody/fake account that posted the tweet
  6. As the title says, what teams do you think have overachieved and underachieved this season Overachieved - Accrington and Wycombe come to mind but they have built their teams over the last few years and this season, they both finally got there. Newport definitely with their budget. Crawley as well, as they have had a manager, a season since returning to League Two and they couldn't score goals at all in the early months of the season Underachieved - Mansfield without doubt. One of the biggest budgets in the league and failed to make play-offs. Swindon also for the same reasons. Steven
  7. Collin (got to), Tootle, Brisley, Duffy, Jones, Alessandra, O'Connor, Hewitt, Grant, Ameobi, Forte No Noble. Doesn't do anything at all. SOOOOOOOOOOOOO glad we didn't pay 100k for him. Bench: Fitzsimons, Dickinson, Hall, Virtue, Husin, Hawkridge, Stead Or you could include Milsom on the bench as he has had the experience of winning the play-offs with Rotherham
  8. Notts County's regular League Two season ended with a goalless draw against Luton Town at Meadow Lane on Saturday. The Magpies, who had sealed a playoff place but could not go any higher than third following the loss to Grimsby Town, played out a bright game against their promoted opponents. Neither side could break the deadlock, however, in a game that had an end-of-season team and with neither side having anything much to play for, except for where Notts would finish in the playoff positions. As it was, Kevin Nolan's charges finished fifth in the table and would find themselve
  9. Apologies for the lateness of the uploads of the Grimsby and Luton vlogs. My internet has been very poor of recent and is very slow. It keeps going off and on again very quickly and we've had to reset it a good 3 or 4 times. If someone can recommend internet that has faster upload speed than a washing machine it would be hugely appreciated.
  10. We need to win to stay above 6th. Id put O'Connor in as well as Tootle and Grant. I'd also be tempted to put Remaye Campbell on the bench
  11. Coventry as i think we can take them the most. Exeter play decent football and Lincoln as an absolute no no. Lincoln are good in high pressure games i.e. Wembley against Shrewsbury. Send them to Exeter with only a corner of the stand to sit in, they can't create an atmosphere. Coventry, for me, weren't anything special when they came to ML.
  12. Notts County threw away the chance of making the top three in League Two with one game to spare after falling to a 2-1 defeat at Grimsby Town on Saturday afternoon. The Magpies laboured at Blundell Park and fell behind through Nathan Clarke's first-half strike. Kevin Nolan's side then looked to have secured a point as Dan Jones stabbed home with only a minute left on the clock. However, the Mariners were not to be denied and substitute Jamille Matt headed a winner in the third of five added minutes to slam the door firmly shut on County's top-three ambitions. With third-pla
  13. O'Connor on for Noble. Noble has not been good enough last few games, especially first half against Yeovil where he was absolute dog. Would also put Tootle back in for Hunt. Maybe Grant in for Alessandra. Depends if LA is full of confidence after that goal.
  14. Notts County are guaranteed a playoff place in League Two and could yet break back into the top three thanks to Saturday's 4-1 win over Yeovil Town at Meadow Lane. The Magpies took the lead on the stroke of half time as Dan Jones let rip with an audacious long-range effort which took a deflection and wrongfooted Glovers keeper John Maddison en route to goal. Notts stepped up a gear in the second half, doubling their lead with a wonderful own goal from Tom James before strikes from Elliott Hewitt and Lewis Alessandra put the hosts out of reach. There was time for the visitors to
  15. That was one of the funniest things I've ever witnessed at a football match Take a bow Tom James, that was something special Has anyone seen anything quite as amazing as that in terms of own goals at Notts
  16. Same line-p but start O'Connor instad of Noble as we seem slow to start games and I don't think he's contributed much in the last few games
  17. Grant I don't know after this season. Seems to have dropped off. Wouldn't pay more than 150k for him unless he guarantees to turn up every week and be our Graham Carey. Mantom would be brilliant. We need one CM if we go up or stay here and he would be just the guy. Akpan would be good for this level (L1 + 2). Elliott is good but I don't think we'll sign him and we need more pacy strikers. Harry Forrester would be brilliant again. Wingers are where we need to improve in the summer regardless of the division we are in. There is a lot of decent players out of contract, some I would go for.
  18. Notts County returned to winning ways as Jonathan Forte's brace sealed a 2-1 victory over League Two promotion rivals Coventry City at Meadow Lane. Pride of Nottingham-sponsored Forte broke the deadlock when he glanced in Jorge Grant's corner in the 60th minute. Coventry equalised in the 85th minute as substitute Jordan Ponticelli deceived goalkeeper Adam Collin with a deft flick into the back of the net. However, the Magpies responded immediately when Forte got a touch on Shola Ameobi's low cross to secure a vital three points. Notts had not won in their last four games bu
  19. I'm sorry for the consistent problematic sound issues in my vlogs. You will have noticed this in the Crewe vlog when Husin scores, the Stevenage vlog when Grant scores and todays vlog when Forte scores. It really really annoys me and it makes me disappointed in myself and the content I'm putting out. I want to, and try, to put out the best content and vlogs possible but it's just a constant issue. I am so sorry
  20. Notts County are now seven points adrift of League Two's automatic promotion places as they were beaten 1-0 at Accrington Stanley on Easter Monday. Mark Hughes's goal was enough to settle the game between the sides at the Wham Stadium as the Magpies slipped to fifth in the table. Notts wasted three glorious opportunities to equalise with Jonathan Forte hitting the bar, while Matty Virtue and substitute Jorge Grant both shot wide when unmarked. With Stanley winning, and Luton Town and Wycombe Wanderers also recording victories, Kevin Nolan's side face a mountain to get back into
  21. Notts County missed out on the chance to gain ground on the top three in League Two as they were held to a goalless draw by Wycombe Wanderers in Good Friday's match at Meadow Lane. The Chairboys came to NG2 very much intent on leaving with a point and the Magpies could not break their defence down in an uninspiring, rain-sodden encounter. County had the better of the chances in the first half with Shola Ameobi striking a post following a Terry Hawkridge cross. Kevin Nolan was then sent to the stands as he vented his anger after Ameobi was hauled down in the penalty area by Adam
  22. Win or bust. If we don't win, for me our automatic promotion hopes are over. Nolan HAS GOT to start taking some responsibility. Just because he's played in the Prem and has done well so far doesn't mean he is untouchable. Drop the underperformers. Collin out, Duffy out, Dickinson out, Hawkridge out. You know what, Noble out as well since I don't actually remember him doing anything whatsoever against Chesterfield. Ameobi out as he looks so uninterested it's actually quite scary. Bring in Fitzsimons, Hall, Jones, Alessandra, Husin and Forte
  23. Notts County were humbled in front of the television cameras as League Two strugglers Chesterfield ran out 3-1 winners in Sunday's encounter at the Proact Stadium. The hosts took the lead on 16 minutes Andy Kellett's corner was touched on by Drew Talbot and Sid Nelson chested the ball past Magpies goalkeeper Adam Collin from point-blank range. Elliott Hewitt then missed a sitter before the Spireites doubled their lead through a poor clearance that was rifled home by Zavon Hines. Notts huffed and puffed and laboured throughout the early afternoon but they put themselves within a
