  1. Good idea @samwatto2008 Some away days I really am not looking forward to next season like Grimsby and carpet shop central Crewe
  2. Richard Duffy, Matt Tootle or Shaun Brisley should be captain and Jordan Houghton, recently released by Chelsea, should be brought in to replace O'Connor
  3. As a club, Notts are doing well. We are bringing in young players and developing them and they intern are helping us move forward as a club But these are two models we cannot replicate 1) Crewe. They flooded their team with youth players too fast, too soon and it has done nothing for them apart from plunder them into successive relegation battles. I'm not saying them players are bad, I'm saying you can't rush youth players (especially lots of them) too fast, too soon into the first team 2) Southampton and Barnsley. Buying players then sell them on. It doesn't move the club forward. It eventually caught up on both clubs. Southampton eventually made a wrong decision in appointing Pellegrino. They can somewhat get away with it as they are in the Premier League. For Barnsley, they weren't so fortunate. Barnsley sold Holgate, Mawson, Winnall, Bree, Hourihane, Roberts and MacDonald all within under two years. Added to that key players such as Scowen and Watkins left. The club just dropped back into League One.
  4. Had a great day out with @NcfcT4 and @Megs_a_million in Nottingham. Nice to take a break from all the rubbish that goes on in the week
  5. Backup Right back, left back, striker. New ball playing CB. New starting winger. two if Hawkridge leaves Need a new left back because I don't want the case of Kellett starting on the wing and being backup LB. Jones will know his backup will be playing LM most of the time and therefore might think he can get away with a not 100% performance. Not saying Jones is lazy, I'm saying competition for places is important and it is important to have a proper backup at left back rather than someone who is playing in another position already. Keeps the starter on his toes and pushes him to play at his best all of the time. We need a proper backup not someone else who plays in another position. Like last season when we had two right backs (Tootle, Hunt) and two left backs (Jones, Dicko)
  6. Enzio Boldewiijn of Crawley is out of contract I think.
  7. @Fan of Big Tone England won 2-0. Rashford and Welbeck scored
  8. I think he lives closer to Lincoln than to Notts but apart from that I can't see why he wouldn't sign - In my opinion, we've got a better chance of going up - He owes us because we've stuck by him since his injury and helped him recover - He can spearhead our season and finally be involved in a promotion battle with us (this time with him involved from the start of the season) - He's our captain
  9. We look very comfortable in possession of the ball and fair do's to Southgate for getting us playing in a formation that works well for us Rashford especially looks good. So wasted out on the wing at United Back three look very solid, Delph has played well in the midfield. He's done well to adapt from playing left back for his club to centre mid at national level.
  10. From May 31st-June 7th Bury - In: Byron Moore (Bristol Rovers) (RM) - Free Cheltenham Town - In: Tom Smith (Swindon Town) (CM) - Free Colchester United - In: Ethan Ross (West Bromwich Albion) (GK) - Free, Aaron Collins (Wolverhampton Wanderers) (ST) - Loan Crawley Town - In: George Francomb (AFC Wimbledon) (RM) - Free Forest Green Rovers - In: Tahvon Campbell (West Bromwich Albion) (ST/W) - Free Grimsby Town - In: Louis Robles (San Roque De Lepe) (ST) - Free, Harry Davis (St Mirren) (CB) - Free Macclesfield Town - In: Miles Welch-Hayes (Bath City) (CB) - Undisclosed Mansfield Town - In: Neal Bishop (Scunthorpe United) (CM) - Free Notts County - In: Kane Hemmings (Oxford United) (ST) - Undisclosed, Will Patching (Manchester City) (CM) - Free Port Vale - In: Emmanuel Oyeleke (Aldershot Town) (CM) - Free
  11. *First team coach. Karl Robinson is the manager. Derry is part of his backroom staff
  12. I know Bennett is a good player and could do a job for us. Just need to glue his hamstrings together
  13. Need backups at RB and LB. Competition for players is important. Keeps the starting player on his feet and on his game, otherwise if he plays poor he will get dropped. Aaron Taylor-Sinclair or Andy Taylor. Need a ball playing CB. Hall or Baldwin for me but don't know if he'd drop to League Two. Definitely would take Macauley Gillesphey Wingers needed because not just do we need competition and depth in that position, we need quality because if we want to go up, I don't think Alessandra and Hawkridge should start. Lawson D'Ath, Mekhi McLeod? Piero Mingoia? Luke Burgess on loan from Wigan. Chris Forrester is wanted by Aberdeen. Brad Inman maybe. Zeli Ismail Extra striker needed. Coulthirst, Gilchrist or a striker on loan. Not Mason Bennett, too injury prone.
  14. Obivously Dennis and Hemmings are exciting because we have got two scorers at last, but for me it's Will Patching. Good young player and looking forward to seeing what he can do. Surprised he signed for us to be honest
  15. The fact we've signed two strikers who aren't target men show we might not be relying on long ball. Patching, being from a PL academy will be used to a passing style of play. His and Crawford's passing and creativity will go to waste if play it long. Kellett ripped us apart playing the number 10 role at Chesterfield, and with that, coupled with him being a better player when going forward, he could be a big asset.
  16. I have heard of him. Decent young CM. Good capture in my opinion
  17. Last 16. Knocked out 2-1 by Poland
  18. Antoine Griezmann - 6 goals. 2 vs Australia, 1 vs Peru 1 vs Iceland in last 16 1 vs Portugal in Quarters 1 vs Germany in final
  19. 20-40 million someone put on Twitter. No chance. Wouldn't pay 10. Not that good. Decent but nothing amazing
  20. Week 2: May 24th to May 31st Cambridge United - In: George Taft (Mansfield Town) (CB) - Free Cheltenham Town - In: Conor Thomas (ATK) (CM) - Undisclosed, Chris Hussey (Swindon Town) (LB/LM/RB/CM) - Free Colchester United - In: Bailey Vose (Brighton & Hove Albion) (GK) - Undisclosed, Noah Chesmain (Millwall) (LB) Forest Green Rivers - In: Carl Winchester (Cheltenham Town) (RM) - Free Grimsby Town - In: Alex Whitmore (Chesterfield) (LB) - Undisclosed Lincoln City - In: Bruno Andrade (Boreham Wood) (W) - Free Macclesfield Town - In: Callum Evans (Forest Green Rovers) (RB) - Free, Nathan Blissett (Plymouth Argyle) (ST) - Free Mansfield Town - In: Matt Preston (Swindon Town) (CB) - Free Notts County - In: Tom Crawford (Chester) (CM) - Undisclosed, Kristian Dennis (Chesterfield) (ST) - Undisclosed, Andy Kellett (Wigan Athletic) (LB/LM/CM) - Free Oldham Athletic - In: Jose Baxter (Free Agent) (CAM/ST) - Free Stevenage - In: Jamal Campbell-Ryce (Free Agent) (W) - Free, Scott Cuthbert (Luton Town) (CB) - Free
  21. Heard that Lincoln want him back. Would be understandable because he lives there and has just had a kid
