  1. Bit late but what are your full table predictions for the League Two season? Btw these are different to my first predictions. I updated them when the transfer window shut. Some might be strange considering their start to the season. E.g. Chesterfield, Accrington, Newport, Colchester. Remember, we're 5 games in, a lot can change. 1.Luton Town (C,P) - By far the best squad in the division. Hylton, Collins and Berry scored 59 goals between them last season in this league for different teams and are sure to be formidable this season. Shinnie and McCormack are also great signings for this division. Got nearly the exact same spine as the team that finished 4th. Should take them one further. 2.Coventry City (P) - Got a manager who knows this level and the club very well. McNulty and Beavon will score goals at this level and Jodi Jones is a good young talent as we have seen. Rod McDonald has won this league before and is solid at the back. Their owners might be donkeys but they have a good enough squad to go back up. 3.Mansfield Town (P) - I hate them. I really hate them. All Notts fans do. With their fans up their own arses every minute and their 3 sided shed of a ground. But Steve Evans has won many promotions. He's assembled a decent enough squad with the standout signings probably Calum Butcher (2 consecutive promotions from L1) and David Mirfin. They haven't had a great start but things will pick up. See Rotherham's 2012-13 season for similarities. 4.Lincoln City - A lot of teams have won promotion from the Conference and gone straight through. Danny Cowley has proven he's a good young manager. They have made some decent signings too including Michael Bostwick, Neal Eardley and Jordan Maguire-Drew. Plus they've kept hold of the core of players which won promotion. Matt Green should assure goals. 5.Colchester United (P) - COLU have a quite a decent team. Kurtis Guthrie scored a dozen last season before picking up an injury. They have quality in the team including Sean Murray, Craig Slater, Ben Dickenson and Kyel Reid. I didn't see Blackpool being anywhere near the play-offs but hey they won promotion and I can see Colchester surprising a few. 6.Stevenage - Signing Danny Newton and keeping Matt Godden means Stevenage have one of the most potent strike forces in the division. Keeping Ben Kennedy was important too. They almost got into the top 7 last season but just missed out. If they can continue their strong start and reignite the home form they had in the earlier part of this year, then a play-off spot is a real possibility. 7.Exeter City - They have had the best start out of anyone and the Grecians seemed to have got over their Play-Off final defeat. They might have lost Ollie Watkins and David Wheeler but they have made some decent signings and have a solid centre-back partnership with Jordan Moore-Taylor and Troy Brown. Another play off finish is likely. 8.Cambridge United - Getting rid of Luke Berry is big for Cambridge. It was very difficult to predict which four teams would make the play-offs and Cambridge will be up there but selling Luke Berry is big. A goalscoring midfielder which is rare for this level. Ibehre is a good signing who will provide goals. They will miss out. Just. Just. 9.Swindon Town - David Flitcroft knows this level well having previously won promotion with Bury. They have brought in some experienced players this summer with the likes of Chris Robertson, Ben Purkiss and Matt Taylor. Also bought in some younger players to help like Timi Elsnik on loan from Derby, Paul Mullin and also spent 350,000 on Kaiyne Woolery whilst also keeping Lawrence Vigouroux. A play off spot is a possibility and they have bounced back straight away when they have been relegated to this league before but their lack of defensive cover is worrying and they haven't got a the potency in attack like Stevenage or maybe even Colchester have. 10.Notts County - Yes. 10th. Calm. We've had a good start to the season but the play-offs is just out of reach unless we sign a quick striker. But if we're gonna play Alessandra there, we need a backup winger. We have a solid partnership in Brisley and Duffy and it's nice see us press teams when we don't have the ball but we lack that little bit more up top if we're going to sneak in and if we do get injuries then our chances are very limited. A good togetherness is something we have and I am thankful for it and it's good to see us grinding out wins when we're not at our best. A little money spent in January on players and we could finish higher. But for now, 10th it is. 11.Chesterfield - Might be strange seeing as they've had a bad start. But I still feel they've bought decent players. Gozie Ugwu scored 17 goals in the National League last season for Woking. Chris O'Grady is an alright player for this level. Louis Reed is a good loan signing whilst also having the experience of Scott Wiseman and Robbie Weir to call upon. But their woeful season last season and continuing boardroom shenanigans means they will need to stablise first. 12.Carlisle United - Despite a dreadful run of form in early 2017, Carlisle still managed to get into the play-offs last season before losing to Exeter. Their defensive cover this season is very limited and whilst they do have some alright creative players like Jamie Devitt, Jason Kennedy and Nicky Adams, there are better teams in this division and the Cumbrians may need to take a step backwards to go forwards. 13.Grimsby Town - Russell Slade is a very safe option as manager with a lot of clubs and experience to his name. He almost got the Mariners promoted from this league in the 2005-06 season but just fell short. The former Notts manager has added experienced lower league players in the form of Nathan Clarke and Martyn Woolford along with promotion winner Karleigh Osborne and younger players such as Harry Cardwell, Sam Kelly, JJ Hooper and Mitch Rose. I can see them having a quiet season. Not being anywhere near relegation but just not having enough to get into the top 7. 14.Accrington Stanley - I feel slightly bad for putting Accy this low. But once the transfer window shuts, I can't make any further adjustments. They've had a good start to the season, scoring many and with John Coleman, who knows the club like the back of his hand, as manager then a play-off place could be on the cards. The promotion race is so tight this year that over half of the division nearly have a chance. They always find someway to defy the odds season after season and this year they might make the play offs. Not for me though. 15.Wycombe Wanderers - Might be controversial but I just don't see it this season. Gareth Ainsworth has done very well with a shoestring budget. They have the experience of Adebayo Akinfenwa, Nathan Tyson and Craig Mackail-Smith and solid peformers such as Joe Jacobson, Anthony Stewart and Matt Bloomfield as well as the quick and creative Paris Cowan-Hall. But I feel the teams I've put above Wycombe have just that little bit more. But as I said, the play off race is wide open. 16.Crewe Alexandra - David Artell has done well since taking over in January. He kept Crewe away from the bottom two and has signed experience performers like Chris Porter and Michael Raynes and has kept Chris Dagnall and the promising George Cooper but their lack of defensive cover is worrying and with a lot of young players in the squad, the play-offs and the top half maybe a bridge too far. 17.Barnet - Yes, I have put them this low despite the signing of Dave Tarpey who scored 44 goals in the National League South last season. Now they have one of the better striker forces in the division. Rossi Eames looks a very capable young manager but I'm still not sure about them just yet. They have kept John Akinde which was massively important but I still feel they need more in defence to make a further push up the table. 18.Port Vale - What is going on here? Michael Brown was appointed in January after the ill fated reign of Bruno Ribeiro. The squad was not sufficiently improved in January and they went down. There has been a mass clear out in the summer with many players leaving and many new players walking through the entrance doors of Vale Park but the Valliants won't go anywhere until Norman Smurthwaite is rid of. Vale are in a kind of similar to position as to what we were back in 2015-16 with a lot of players going out and a lot of new players coming in, as well as an inexperienced manager and an owner who the fans dislike very much. All this combined and Vale will be here for a while until a new owner is found. 19.Forest Green Ratbags - Dale Vince and his small ocean of vegan motion have had a tough start to life in the Football League conceding goals left, right and centre. Not helped by the fact young centre-back, Ethan Pinnock, was sold to Barnsley. They have the goals of Christian Doidge to help keep them up but their defensive record is very worrying. Whilst they have bought in experienced players such as Mark Roberts, Lee Collins and Scott Laird I can't see Mark Cooper's side doing much. 20.Yeovil Town - Another team who are conceding goals a lot, the Glovers have had a mixed start. The signing of Olufela Olomola on loan from Southampton has turned out well with the striker scoring 4 goals in his first 5 appearances. Jake Gray and Connor Smith are also decent captures but there squad stil feels very average and they have shown they need to stop leaking goals at a considerable rate to have a chance of staying up. They will stay up but with only a few games to go. 21.Crawley Town - Another season. Another new manager. Another overhaul of the playing squad. Another relegation battle? Probably. Crawley haven't been great since they came down from League One and I can only just see them escaping by a few points this time. Harry Kewell being in an inexperienced manager, his philosophy might take time to bed in especially with so many new players. They have the experience of Jimmy Smith, Dean Cox and Danny Bulman but also a few foreign players who might take time adjusting to this level of football. Staying up. Only just 22.Morecambe - The Shrimps are always tipped for relegation and always avoid it. Even at the most difficult times last season with the clubs finances dwindling, Jim Bentley managed to unite the team and fans and they got the results needed to stay clear of the bottom two. But with one of the smallest budgets in the division, the task gets harder every season. Adam Campbell isn't a good signing at all. I despise that man. No end product. Former Notts players Vadaine Oliver and Garry Thompson have arrived at the Globe Arena but the Lancashire club have conceded 91 and 76 goals in the last two seasons respectively and it is only going to be an uphill task to keep the club in the Football League. Bentley will do it by a very small margin. 23.Newport County (R) - They escaped last year by the very slim skin of their very wobbly teeth. They also finished 22nd the previous season. Whilst they have made some alright signings and I feel like I should have put them higher, we are only 5 games in. There is a long way to go. 24.Cheltenham Town (R) - They stayed up just last season and were by far one of the worst teams I saw play at Meadow Lane last season. Their squad is worse than average. They might have kept Harry Pell but he was still part of the struggling team that finished 21st last season. And whilst they have a promising youngster in Mohamed Eisa, I can't see anything else other than relegation for the Robins.
  2. Notts County's impressive run this season continues to gather pace after a 1-0 win at Port Vale on Saturday. The Magpies faced their third League One-relegated opponent in their first five League Two games of the season at Vale Park in the first weekend of September. However, the Valiants have not been in good form this campaign, and they succumbed to a defeat at the hands of Notts thanks to substitute Lewis Alessandra's second-half strike. Despite going down to ten men due to Shaun Brisley's injury after all three substitutions had been made, Kevin Nolan's charges continued to impress and saw the game out with little trouble. The result sees the Magpies in an impressive fifth-place position (or joint-third if you will) in the table, with 10 points from five games.

  3. The 2-0 win at home in the JPT in 2014 as it's the only time I've ever seen us beat them.
  4. So angry and very very disappointed. Still do not understand why a goalscorer was not a main priority in the summer. We all knew Stead and Ameobi would be ok but would not cut the deep enough mustard to take us into a play off place. I'm happy with the amount of chances we created but we need to take them. A goalscorer takes them. Why Ameobi shot when Grant had the freedom of Nottingham to put us 3-1 up I have no idea. Ameobi and Stead won't play all the games this season so why we haven't bought a striker to put into the starting x1 I will never know. We can't stop conceding either. 7 in 4 games is woeful. Why we keep allowing the opposition back into the game when we're 2-0 up, I have no idea. Wycombe last weekend, Orient last season. We need to stop making life so hard for ourselves. Still feels like we need another centre back.
  5. A rollercoaster August on the pitch for Notts County has ended on a somewhat sour note as the Magpies were held to a 2-2 draw by Accrington Stanley. In Friday night's League Two fixture at Meadow Lane, rescheduled due to a fixture clash with the neighbours over the Trent, the Magpies edged into a 1-0 half time lead thanks to Jon Stead's penalty. Things got even better for Kevin Nolan's charges as they doubled their lead in the 54th minute through Jorge Grant, but for the second consecutive game, this was to be wasted. First, Mark Hughes looped home a volley, then in injury time, after a player from each side had been sent off, Mallik Wilks struck the equaliser.

  6. Notts County began the 2017/18 League Two season away at Coventry City, but unfortunately it did not go the Magpies' way as they succumbed to a heavy defeat in the West Midlands. A total of 1,727 members of the Black and White Army descended upon the Ricoh Arena to see Notts open their account for the campaign following a summer of rebuilding both on the pitch and behind the scenes. As it turned out, the Sky Blues were in inspired form following their humiliating relegation from League One last season, and the teenage prodigy Jody Jones rattled a hat-trick past Notts for a 3-0 final result.

  7. We've made a lot of signings this week. Six, to be precise. And now Notts have stepped up their recruitment drive, the question on everyone's lips is, how are we going to line up against Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday? There may be some difference in opinions in the formation that we use throughout the season, but I'm going to stick with 4-4-2 as we used that nearly all of the time last season when Nolan took over. Starting in goal. Adam Collin seems like the obvious choice and whilst most of our fans don't like him much, it's hard to see Fitzsimons or Pindroch replacing him just yet. Matt Tootle has the right-back spot sewn up sweetly. If he avoids the injury problems he had last season he could play every league game. I don't expect Jordon Richards or Nicky Hunt to start much at all this season. The left-back spot is easy. Dan Jones will easily displace Carl Dickinson. The ex-Stoke man was very error-prone last season, especially when he consistently allowed opposition players into the box unchallenged. It was obvious we needed a new left-back and he needed to have pace, something Jones has and Dickinson doesn't. Centre-back has plagued us for a few seasons now. The last two especially where we conceded 83 in 15-16 and 76 in 16-17. For me Shaun Brisley has to start. He played in the Peterborough team that reached the League One playoffs a few years ago and we're crying out for stability at centre-half. Richard Duffy has been a lot better since Kevin Nolan came in. For me he beats Hollis to that first team spot alongside Brisley. Duffy, for me, was better under Nolan in the second the half of last season than Hollis was and is just a better player in my opinion. I would like to see Pierce Bird play a few games this season. He seems like a good prospect and someone who I think definitely has potential. Onto the wingers and for me it has to be Jorge Grant and Lewis Alessandra. Grant showed last season he is a quality player, especially for this level and has an abundance of creativity. He could very easily hit 10-15 goals for the 2017-18 season. Alessandra has much needed pace which Notts have been begging for, for a few seasons now. I think Nolan can get the best out of the former Hartlepool man. This pushes Terry Hawkridge to the bench but I still see him playing a key role in creating chances for the Magpies. There is also the option of playing these three together behind a lone striker. I don't see Elliot Hodge featuring regularly unless key players pick up injuries. Sam Osborne has great potential but isn't ready yet and a loan spell out to gain first team football is what he needs. Moving into the centre of the park, there are several options to choose from. Rob Milsom, Elliott Hewitt, Liam Walker, Curtis Thompson and Ryan Yates. It's obvious we will miss Michael O'Connor. As captain he led by example and played a massive part in Notts climbing the table. He formed a great partnership with Milsom and in my opinion, Milsom should keep his place in the starting eleven. He is good at pressing teams and is a neat and tidy passer and very calm in possession of the ball. In my opinion, Liam Walker should start alongside him. Walker is more of an attackive minded midfielder and his long shots and set pieces will be a danger to opposition teams. Elliott Hewitt is getting better by the day. He looks at home in the centre of midfield and moving him there from his right back slot could prove a solid decision. Ryan Yates is more of a box to box midfielder and when played, could be very useful in linking defence to attack. I don't see Curtis Thompson playing many games this season and his persistent injury problems haven't helped him at all. Alex Howes is a another player who I see getting loaned out to gain more first team experience. I don't expect a permanent central midfield pairing. I think Milsom, Hewitt, Walker and Yates will all have their turn in the starting XI. Finally, we move into the final third. Jon Stead and Shola Ameobi signed new contracts in the summer and unless we sign a striker before opening day then it will be them two starting up front. As a strike partnership, they have shown they can be effective but not spectacular. Ameobi is a very good player for holding the ball up and this can help bring other players into the game such as Grant and Alessandra as well as Stead. Despite being 6'3, Stead likes the ball more to his feet and Nolan is the first manager, since the ex-Huddersfield man joined Notts, to realise he isn't a target man. He has done very well to score 25 goals in the last two seasons but he is 34 and Ameobi is 35 and it's clear we need someone younger up front who can take us further up the table than my current prediction of 10th. For me we still need a striker if we're going to break into the play-off places. Jonathan Forte can be an asset but breaking into the first team next season will be difficult for him especially if we sign another striker. I prefer him as a striker to a winger but was utilised more as the latter last season but still managed 10 goals. Whilst he only scored 2 in 23 at Crewe, Callum Saunders looks like one for the future. I've heard that his movement is very good but he needs to work on his finishing. My starting XI for Coventry: Collin, Tootle, Duffy, Brisley, Jones, Grant, Milsom, Walker, Alessandra, Stead, Ameobi Squad GK - Adam Collin, Ross Fitzsimons, Branislav Pindroch, Joe Searson-Smithard RB - Matt Tootle, Jordon Richards, Nicky Hunt LB - Dan Jones, Carl Dickinson CB - Shaun Brisley, Richard Duffy, Haydn Hollis, Pierce Bird W - Jorge Grant (RM), Lewis Alessandra (LM,RM), Terry Hawkridge (RM,LM), Elliot Hodge (RM), Sam Osborne (RM) CM - Rob Milsom, Elliott Hewitt, Liam Walker, Curtis Thompson, Ryan Yates, Michael O'Connor (INJ), Alex Howes ST - Jon Stead, Shola Ameobi, Jonathan Forte, Callum Saunders Share your thoughts about this feature article on Pride of Nottingham by signing up to the website, visiting the forum and joining in the chat with hundreds of fellow Notts County fans.

  8. It's clear that Notts need signings. Even before we played our first two friendlies, against Rolls-Royce and Basford, it was very clear. In terms of transfer activity, our three signings so far puts us 20th in League Two in terms of how many players we've brought in. At the current moment in time we can only just about fill a matchday squad. Improvements and a bit of squad depth is definitely needed. Every position, apart from left-back, needs either a new signing who is going to come into the starting XI or a new signing which will add depth. Firstly let's start in goal. Adam Collin showed last season he can be prone to making more than one mistake in a game and many fans have wanted him replaced. Although he has his faults, it's hard to see Kevin Nolan dropping him from the first team. Joe Searson-Smithard is Notts through and through but at the moment I don't think he's ready for the first team, though it would be nice to see him become our No.1 in the near future. A few goalkeepers have been on trial for the two friendlies as expected in pre season with Connor Brennan, Joe Cracknell and Ross Fitzsimons joining the team. Any of these three would be nice just as back-up. Right-back was a bit of the problem until the other day when me and my brother realised Jordan Richards could be back-up to Matt Tootle. In my opinion, we should have kept Luther Wildin as back-up, so we didn't have to spend in that area. As we know Tootle picked up a few injuries last season but under the management of Kevin Nolan he has been solid. But if injuries start piling up, we need someone to fill the spot. Well well well. The wonderful world of centre-backs. Everyone has split opinions on Richard Duffy and Haydn Hollis. If you watched my vlogs last season, you'll know I was very critical of Duffy during the awful run between November and early January. But under Nolan, he was transformed and had a solid partnership with Hollis and on occasions, Thierry Audel to see us comfortably to safety. Hollis has divided opinion ever since the Great Escape in 2014. Well, here he is, still with us after signing another new contract. This year he has to prove his future lies here. We have the manager, the owner, the facitlies and now is his time to prove the haters wrong and prove that he belongs in the Notts first team. But sadly we're not all rosy in this part of the pitch. In my opinion a Duffy-Hollis partnership will not take us up. And at the minute they are our only two centrebacks at the club. Mike Edwards is back-up. He's our fitness coach. Edwards cannot be playing again next season if we want to win promotion. He's a nice guy but he shouldn't have to be called upon on the pitch. So one or two required in this area. Pierce Bird from Dunkirk (who I think we should sign) has been on trial and youth team player Peter Dearle has played in friendlies. At the start of the window, Notts approached Lincoln City captain Luke Waterfall but he rejected our terms and offered to sign a contract extension at Sincil Bank. A move for a defender recently collapsed so we are back to square one. I would like to sign ex-Wycombe defender Aaron Pierre but after recently having a trial at Bristol City but not being offered a contract it's probable that he might end up in League One. Kevin Toner on loan from Aston Villa wouldn't be a bad transfer as he spent time on loan at a Bradford City side that reached the play-off final last season. James Wilson didn't start regurlarly for Sheffield United last season so he could be worth a look as well. This would make sense as the Blades recently bought Richard Stearman in from Wolves. Another centre-back I'd like is Dominic Ball from Rotherham whether on loan or permanent. He is also a player I said we should have got on loan in January. Tom Anderson on loan from Burnley would be another decent signing as he has had previous experience of lower league after two loan spells at Chesterfield and one at Carlisle. Moving onto the wing and yes, whilst we have signed Lewis Alessandra and Terry Hawkridge, we are still a little short. And if injuries happen we need players to replace them. I would like to see Sam Osborne get more games this season but whether he's ready or not remains to be seen. Milan Lalkovic on loan from Portsmouth would not be a bad shout as he hasn't played regularly for last season's League Two champions. He scored 7 goals from the wing in a Walsall team that reached the play offs in League One in 2016. That was enough for Pompey to pay compensation for his services last summer. A winger from the Premier League or Championship on loan wouldn't go amiss, and as shown previously they can be a big threat at League Two level. Luke Gambin or Lawson D'Ath from Luton would be good signings for this level as well. Both signed in January and so far D'Ath has struggled to break into the Hatters first team. Moving swiftly into centre midfield and the saga that Notts have only just seen the back of. Notts made four bids for Liam Noble and none were successful. The saga has consumed the Magpies' transfer window up until now and no matter how much Notts tried, Forest Green weren't going to budge. At the start, it was clear £100k was going to be enough, but only a few weeks and four bids later, FGR manager Mark Cooper told BBC Radio Gloucester that the former Notts midfielder was not for sale. Since we wanted him, I said I didn't want him back because of his previous disciplinary record, he's not worth £100k and there are better out there. One player who is better and one that we should of got was Louis Reed, on loan from Sheffield United but recently signed for Chesterfield. Jermaine Anderson of Peterborough is another player I would aim for on loan but has injury problems in the last year or two. I would like to sign Connor Dimaio but I can't see him leaving Chesterfield. Other players we could look at in this area are Ryan Yates (Forest), Jordon Houghton (Doncaster), Giorgio Rasulo (MK Dons) and Ben Whitfield (Bournemouth). Strikers are needed. I've constantly said on Twitter that strikers are a must. Stead and Ameobi are 34 and 35 respectively and whilst Stead scored 14 last season we need someone else and someone with pace. Notts had were linked with Matt Godden but that soon fizzled out. Football League World have said that we should get Toni Martinez on loan from West Ham. The Spaniard has already had one loan spell previously and that was at Oxford United last season. With a few West Ham fans wanting him to be given a chance, this would a fantastic signing for League Two level. Another Premier League player we should be interested in taking on loan is Callum Roberts from Newcastle. He has done really well in the youth team at Newcastle and had a short spell in the England Under 20 team. Moving away from loanees and into permanent transfers. Oliver Hawkins is a player we really need to look at, he scored 18 goals in the National League last season for Dagenham and Redbridge. Portsmouth have already declared their interest but do not want to pay the money. Dagenham have said they want £250k for Hawkins but this price seems a bit much. Another striker who scored 18 in the National League last season is Danny Johnson from Gateshead. A delve into non-league for strikers would not be a bad decision at all.
