  1. Jon Stead has elaborated on his decision to reject interest from all around the world to sign a new Notts County contract and promised that there is more to come from him next season. During the 2016-17 campaign, the 34-year-old was the Magpies' highest scorer with 14 goals, and he won the League Two Player of the Month award for September. There was interest from the United States for Stead, who was sidelined by injury midway through the season, but he has now committed his future to Meadow Lane by signing a new deal believed to be for one more year. Stead told the Nottingham Post: "(Nolan) was obviously pleased I had signed but he made it clear from the day he walked through the door that he wanted me to be a part of his journey. "As a player you want to be made to feel important by your manager and that was another reason as to why I decided to stay. "I made the decision to stay about two-and-a-half weeks ago. I had been on holiday and had also been away from the club for two to three weeks. Being away from everything certainly helped give me clarity to decide what I was going to do. "And even up until Thursday, I was still getting messages containing offers from clubs across the world. I had a couple in Sweden, then one to play in the Indian Super League, and obviously I spoke to quite a few clubs in America too. "I just felt in the end that Notts felt right, but it took a lot of sleepless nights. It was not just a big decision for my career, but also my life. It's a massive undertaking to move abroad and I just felt that I wasn't ready to let go of the Football League. "There's definitely more to come from me next season."

  3. Jon Stead has put pen to paper on a new contract at Notts County. During the 2016-17 campaign, the 34-year-old was the Magpies' highest scorer with 14 goals, and he won the League Two Player of the Month award for September. There was interest from the United States for Stead, who was sidelined by injury midway through the season, but he has now committed his future to Meadow Lane and he says he is "delighted" with the decision. He told the official club site: "It took me a while to make sure it was the right thing for me and the family, but it definitely is and I can't wait to get going. "I want to be here. It's exciting times - there's a real buzz about the place. You don't want to be looking from the outside and wishing you'd been involved. "I know the gaffer sees me playing a big part in his team and that's all you want to hear as a player." Manager Kevin Nolan added: "He doesn't only bring goals, but his all-round play, experience and professionalism are first class. "He's the type of player any manager would love to have in their dressing room." It is unconfirmed how long the new deal is for, but it is believed to be for one year.

  4. Jon Stead has given a lengthy interview to the Daily Mail as part of their last EFL Q&A of the season. If you wanted to know all the nitty gritty about the striker's best and worst moments in football, his hardest opponents, and of course, his guilty food pleasure, look no further. Here it is: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-4475930/EFL-Q-Jon-Stead-opens-up.html Have a read and let's discuss the finer points of what he's had to say - plenty of interesting material in there.
  5. Jon Stead says he would like to get a few more goals for Notts County before the end of the season and have the team carrying momentum into the 2017-18 campaign. The veteran striker is currently on 14 goals from 36 League Two appearances, having beaten his tally for league goals last season - 11 - and level on last season's tally in all competitions. Stead, whose future at Meadow Lane is far from certain, nonetheless insists that he wants the group to finish the current campaign strongly and target a promotion push next year. "I'd like another couple of goals before the season ends," he told the Nottingham Post. "Even just to get to 15 would be nice as it's a round number. "I just want to be consistent in what I am doing and as a group we want maximum points. "We want to finish the season strongly and in confident mood so that we come back ready for a promotion push."

  10. Jon Stead has revealed that an offer for him to play in the United States is still on the table, but says he is "50/50" over whether he will stay with Notts County or not. The veteran striker, whose contract runs out in the summer, has made no secret of the fact he was close to leaving Meadow Lane in the winter, but decided to stay put when Alan Hardy took over the previously beleaguered club. Talking about his future, Stead told the Nottingham Post: "I think discussions will be starting in two to three weeks. "I will look at all my options. The offer from America is still on the table and I think there are a few more clubs that are now aware of the situation. "But I've kind of dismissed anything else in England apart from what will come here at Notts. "Once I've had discussions then I can sit down and look at making what I know will be difficult decisions. "I still have an open mind and I've no need to rush. I've loved being here the last three to four months under the gaffer, and his staff. "That's made the decision a lot more difficult. I've had a couple of chats with the gaffer and we have a really good relationship. "But my life is a bit on hold at the moment. I've got to make sure the next move is right for me and my family."

  12. Shola Ameobi is only contracted to the end of the season, he still lives in Newcastle and he told a fan at our last home game that he is unsure about his plans - stating that 'pre season' would allow him to decide. Jon Stead is also up for a contract renewal and there's heavy rumours that he is already making plans to move to the United States. Would allowing both to leave be a major problem for Notts? They have a good understanding, whilst I think there experience is a major part in our turn around. I do feel we could sign players good enough to get goals in this division, however I am hopeful we can retain at the very least Jon Stead. If we managed to retain them both, I think a younger, more direct striker would do very well in support of them and the squad would only really require additional quality which would reduce time on having to sign a bulk load of players. What do you think?
  13. What a beauty! I felt very disappointed for Jon Stead to see this ruled out. It was classy finish!
  14. The manager speaks to Leigh Curtis of the Nottingham Post after the 2-1 win at Brunton Park against Carlisle United.
  15. The feelgood factor around Notts County continues as Shola Ameobi praised his teammates, in particular strike partner Jon Stead, as well as miracle worker Kevin Nolan. The Magpies are 13 points clear of the League Two bottom two with seven games to go, and although safety is not mathematically certain, it has allowed fans to breathe a lot easier, in particular with the downturn in form of basement sides Newport County and Leyton Orient. Ameobi, who scored the winner in County's 1-0 win at high-flying Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday, told the Nottingham Post: "Jonny did brilliantly down the right and all I had to do was put it in. "He did most of the work so it's a great feeling, but an even greater feeling knowing we have got the three points. "We have a lot of experience and hopefully still a little bit of quality in there as well. The more we play together, the more we understand each other's games which is helping. "But as a team we are evolving. There is a progression and the manager is doing a lot of work in the background and on the training pitch in which he is cultivating a way to play. "You can see that more and more. We've got it at home but it's about bringing it away which is what he wanted to see at Wycombe. "We are just delighted that we are able to put up a fight first and foremost, but the defence and Richard Duffy and Haydn Hollis were brilliant at snuffing them out and keeping us out the box. "It's great to obviously score the goal and for it to be the winner, but the performance, given we have struggled away from home, was excellent. "The manager has tried to instil the ability to come away from Meadow Lane and that the type of performances we need is the one we showed at Wycombe. "We want to keep this run going now. We've only lost once in the last eight or nine games and you can see there is a lot of confidence in the boys now in the team and its shape. "It's great when you get the wins, but it's a continued progression and building on what we have done so far. "Our home record has been great, and it would be nice to keep that going against Colchester at Meadow Lane on Saturday."

  16. Jon Stead has revealed how close he was to leaving Notts County in the January transfer window because of how frustrating it was to be at Meadow Lane under the previous owners and manager. Speculation had emerged linking the striker with a move to the United States as the Magpies were freefalling towards the bottom of League Two, John Sheridan in charge at the time. However, Stead decided to stay put until at least the end of the season, when his contract expires, after Alan Hardy took over the club and Kevin Nolan was appointed manager. "The way the season was progressing with the previous manager, he made it quite clear the players were all available to leave," Stead told the Nottingham Post. "Things weren't going well and it was a frustrating place to be at, so I had to look at my future, given my contract is up at the end of the season. "There's my age as well, which is something I don't like to talk about, but I will be 34 next month and I like to think I have a lot of football ahead of me. "It would have been a big change because I've had 16-17 years of playing football in the UK. "It's something that came up so I looked at it the same way as I would anything else. "The appointment of Kevin changed my mind 100 percent. I spoke to him a couple of days after the Mansfield game and made him aware of the situation. "We were in a transfer embargo at the time and he said he couldn't let me go. I understood the decision and the more I've seen of the gaffer and his staff, the more I like."

  18. Jon Stead has set a target of breaking the 20-goal barrier between now and the remainder of the season following his return to form. The veteran striker scored goals number 12 and 13 last weekend as Notts County claimed a precious 3-2 win at Leyton Orient which saw them edge further away from the League Two drop zone. Stead began the campaign brightly with nine goals in his first 10 league games, then failed to score for three games before an injury saw him ruled out for two months, and after he returned, he scored just one in his next ten. Now, with three in his last three and the Magpies in a better place than they were just a few weeks ago, he is looking to make the most of his upturn in form. And asked if he was thinking of finishing the season with 20 goals, he told the Nottingham Post: "Twenty would be lovely. "It's one of those where you want to take your fair share of chances, rather than missing them. "I was disappointed with the header from the set-piece in the second half against Orient, but the other two half-chances I got, I stuck them away. I was happy with that." Stead also spoke of how the Notts fans are finally starting to reap some dividends for all their support with a much-improved team. He added: "They have been fantastic all season through difficult times. It's nice they have got that belief back. That's obviously been instilled by the manager and the new owner. "They are getting that buzz to the club and that only helps us out on the pitch. I think we are starting to repay that a little bit as players."

  19. Jon Stead has admitted he let a prospective move to the United States affect his Notts County performances, but is eager to make amends by focusing fully on the Magpies for the remainder of the season. The veteran striker took his tally for the season to 13 after a crucial brace in the 3-2 win over Leyton Orient at the weekend. Stead began the campaign brightly with nine goals in his first 10 league games, then failed to score for three games before an injury saw him ruled out for two months, and after he returned, he scored just one in his next ten. However, all is well again with regards to his goalscoring, and he has expressed disappointment in letting his mind wander, promising to make amends until the end of the season, when his contract expires, and only then will he consider his future at Meadow Lane. He told the Nottingham Post: "There was interest from America and at this stage of my career I can't deny that it still attracts me. "It's a complete lifestyle change but it's difficult because it was all in the pipeline before the new manager came in. "It needed putting to bed but the manager knows that given the type of lad I am that I wasn't going to throw my toys out of the pram and be disruptive. "I'll give it everything until the end of the season, but then I will regroup and have a look then. "I will consider all my options in the summer, but there is so much going on at the minute in respect of climbing the table and ensuring we are safe. "That's my sole focus and I think that has shown in my last three performances. "I was disappointed a little bit in letting my mind wander prior to that. "It would have been very easy for me to make it clear by the way that I conducted myself around the club that I didn't want to be here. "But that's something I couldn't possibly do. It's not in my nature and I've not been brought up like that. My mum and my dad would not be happy if I was behaving in that manner. "I will give it everything like I have at every club I've been at."

  20. The Alan Hardy and Kevin Nolan renaissance continues as Notts County put in a gutsy performance at Leyton Orient and, despite being pegged back, persevered and claimed a 3-2 win at Brisbane Road to gain further ground from the League Two relegation zone. Orient were already without Liam Kelly, who was banned for six games after pushing a Plymouth Argyle ballboy earlier in the week, and suffered a further setback when defender Tom Parkes was stretchered off with only eight minutes on the clock. The Magpies broke the deadlock in the 35th minute when Teddy Mezague failed to deal with a long goal kick from Adam Collin and Jorge Grant poked the ball past Sam Sargeant. Notts then went 2-0 up within three minutes of the beginning of the second half after Jon Stead beat Sargeant in the box and his touch went in off the bar. The O's, however, reduced the deficit within a minute when McCallum headed home after Nigel Atangana's header had struck the crossbar. Danny Webb's charges were back then on level terms when Mezague unleashed a powerful volley into the net from outside the penalty area with 10 minutes left. It was Notts who had the final word when, with six minutes left in the game, Marc Bola sent in a cross from the left and Stead drove the ball into the net to seal all three points.

  21. Of all the players Notts County have within their squad, it’s often the youngsters who are referred to as being the key in order to survive the drop from League Two. In January, the club reinforced itself with the arrivals of Jorge Grant, Marc Bola, Josh Clackstone and Tahvon Campbell. However, it was the arrival of experienced veteran striker Shola Ameobi that captivated the fans' excitement the most. I value the experience that players of Ameobi’s quality bring. Mark Stallard mentioned on BBC Radio Nottingham that Ameobi has the quality to help, noting that the frontman may not be in the prime of his career but if he can regain match sharpness there is no doubt just how significant his arrival would be. Having the likes of Ameobi, Kevin Nolan and Alan Smith on our books as players, individuals who have competed at the highest level and had the careers they've had, does look naturally impressive. They process the right type of knowledge, which is beneficial to a club that is lacking leaders on the pitch, especially one that is in a relegation battle. One thing which struck me recently as I watched Notts play, we tend to be almost one-dimensional and it’s only the senior players who try to overcome this issue. The only exception has been the return of Curtis Thompson, who is a true grafter, yet position-wise, during our own attacks, players are often unsupported and this limits the chances that can be created. Ameobi has gotten stuck in, with another veteran player Mark Yeates currently failing to make any sort of impression for the most part of the minutes in which he has featured. A few good dead balls doesn’t make up for much, yet even he could be a pinnacle player and if Michael O’Connor, Richard Duffy and Robert Milson continue to step up, perhaps it will only be a matter of time for Yeates? I am unsure how much of a part the inexperienced players can play in our survival, Jordan Richards does seem to be a great young player but nowhere near first team standards. However, I am dead certain that the veterans at the club can contribute when it truly matters. The depth looks to be the right balance for survival and I am convinced we have more than enough in order to achieve that. It may be unpopular to suggest seeing Alan Smith, however he can make the odd cameo appearance and provide some real grit in the bulk of midfield. Nolan at this stage must continue to identify the players that can affect and change games, critics may argue that Smith doesn’t have any future as a player. They may argue that Yeates and Jon Stead are both past it, however Notts do look much better with them around. Survival will go down to who is the most prepared, so having a squad which is highly unpredictable, full of experience, and eagerly awaiting youngsters who can make an impact when required. I would hope that the defence, along with Richard Duffy, continues to impress, with Thierry Audel looking all the more like a new signing for the club. It does appear that Nolan does have the right types of headaches when it comes to his selection, with a surprising comeback against Exeter City. It does show that the players are responding to the training and are well aware of the importance these games have on the future of the club.

  22. Kevin Nolan has revealed that he wants Jon Stead to remain at Notts County next season and tips him to get more goals this season. The 33-year-old has scored 11 times during the current campaign and gave the Magpies the lead on Saturday when they ultimately claimed a 2-1 win over Cheltenham Town. Nolan previously spoke of Stead being the subject of a bid from the United States in January which the boss did not sanction. With the veteran striker being out of contract at the end of the season, Nolan is now hoping that he will commit to a new deal given his usefulness to Notts. Asked if he would like to keep Stead for next season, Nolan told the Nottingham Post: "Without a shadow of a doubt because he brings so much to the squad. "His intelligence off the field as well as on it and his game management is a real asset to us. "The goals then speak for themselves and I think you will see a few more fly in from now until the end of the season. "He's really enjoying his football and hopefully now we will start seeing the best Jon Stead because he's just got one focus which is Notts County."

  23. Notts County have extended their gap above the League Two relegation zone to three points after a 2-1 win over Cheltenham Town in Saturday's game at Meadow Lane. The Magpies began brightly and took the lead in the 24th minute when Michael O'Connor unlocked the Robins defence with a delightful pass which curled into the path of a charging Jon Stead, who bore down on goal under pressure and rifled past Scott Brown into the roof of the net. Just nine minutes later, Kevin Nolan's side had doubled their lead with the kind of goal which has often been their undoing this season, so it was a relief to see it scored at the other end of the pitch as Mark Yeates swung a corner into the box and Richard Duffy shrugged off the opposition defenders to nod home. Notts could have been three to the good just before half time when Stead raced through one-on-one, but Brown blocked well this time. Despite a tactical shuffle by Cheltenham boss Gary Johnson, which saw his side improve, Notts remained a threat as substitute Jonathan Forte hit the post and Tahvon Campbell skewed the follow-up wide in the 75th minute. Manny Onariase managed to grab a late goal for the visitors to set up a nervy finish for the home crowd, but the Magpies held firm and secured all three points which gave their first against the drop a much-needed boost.

  24. Notts County boss Kevin Nolan has revealed that Jon Stead was in fact the subject of a bid from the United States, but was not willing to let his top scorer go. There were rumours going round in January that the striker was on the radar of an American club, but ultimately he stayed put at Meadow Lane. Stead scored his 11th goal of the season against Cheltenham Town on Saturday, which proved crucial as the final result was 2-1 and helped the Magpies create some distance between them and the bottom two. Nolan told the Nottingham Post: "He's had a great opportunity to go and play across the water and it would have been life changing for him and his family. But I just told him that I could not let my top scorer go. "I brought people in who can work with him, but nobody who could replace him. He's been first class since I came in and I just thought it looked like a different Jon Stead. "There's been a lot of speculation but we finally put that to bed earlier this week. He has been fantastic since I came in so I am delighted for him."
