  3. Somebody wake Billy Joe Armstrong up! It's been a pretty eventful September for Notts County, who have conquered all before them in League Two... until the final hurdle anyway. But hey, still top of the league, so it'll be a month remembered largely for the right reasons. In this article, Pride of Nottingham recaps all the biggest stories from Meadow Lane and elsewhere in the Magpie world that happened in September 2017. September 1 Notts County made no late acquisitions in the summer transfer window but Alan Hardy revealed that the club moved for three young higher-league players on loan as deadline day loomed. September 2 Notts County got their month off to an ideal start with a clean sheet and three points from a tough League Two fixture, winning 1-0 at newly relegated side Port Vale in Burslem thanks to Lewis Alessandra's goal. September 3 Kevin Nolan said Shaun Brisley was okay after the defender suffered a blow to the head in Notts County's win over the Valiants. September 5 A fundraising drive begun to design and install a plaque outside the Nottingham hotel where a meeting was held to create Notts County Football Club. September 9 Notts County stretched their unbeaten run to six matches in all competitions following a 2-0 victory against traditional bogey team Morecambe at Meadow Lane. September 12 Notts County edged up to second in League Two following another workmanlike performance in a midweek 1-0 win over Swindon Town. September 14 Kevin Nolan revealed that a "ruckus" took place between himself and Rob Milsom over the Notts County midfielder becoming sloppy in training. September 15 Kevin Nolan played down Shola Ameobi's hamstring injury suffered in the game over Morecambe, suggesting that he will not be out of action for too long. September 16 Notts County's unbeaten run was stretched to eight games - not to mention a four-match winning streak in League Two and four clean sheets in a row - thanks to a 1-0 win at Crawley Town. September 20 Notts County announced that manager Kevin Nolan signed a new three-year contract with the club. September 23 Notts County's amazing form showed no sign of letting up with a fifth win on the spin, a 4-1 hammering of local rivals Lincoln City at Meadow Lane. September 26 The crunch clash between League Two's top two saw Notts County cement their hold at the top of the table with a frankly frightening 3-0 win at Exeter City. September 27 Notts County and Mansfield Town announced that the end-of-month derby would see the introduction of a new trophy contested between the two sides in honour of former Stags physiotherapist Matt Salmon, who sadly passed away aged 25 earlier in the year. September 29 Fresh from the deal struck between Pride of Nottingham and BettaBytz Computers, PON announced an exciting new partnership with Notts Driving School. September 30 Notts County's superb month finished on a sour note with a 3-1 defeat at local rivals Mansfield Town.

  5. Dear members of the Pride of Nottingham community, I’d like to start by thanking you for your continued and unwavering support of the website, the social media and of course of the team that we root for – or have a soft spot for, in the case of those who favour other teams – the mighty Notts County. Yesterday was a groundbreaking day for the website and the forum, which has seen a number of records well and truly smashed. First of all we have had a total of 76 different members logging onto the forum today, which smashes the previous record of 54. Then we’ve seen 330 different posts being sent out so far, which again has completely blitzed the previous highest post amount of 220. Over 25 active posters, which is when people are regularly creating threads and posting responses, have been logged in at any one time, which is a substantial increase from the previous highest of 17. And now for some overall statistics – the amount of posts on PON now stands at a massive 43,000, with 432 members having joined up to the forum. All this is testament to how successful the site is proving with not only Notts supporters, but fans of football, and once again this kind of achievement could not have been possible without each and every one of you. As you all know there are some truly exciting developments coming up with PON so let’s all keep up the good work and take things onwards and upwards! COYP!! Joe Jones
  6. Dear Community/Visitors, It's been a good year for us, I am personally excited about 2015 holds for us and although we have seen some tragic news in recent days, I know that we're on the right path. The festive period is all about friends and family, I take warmth from knowing that I have made several from my activities on PoN and I have enjoyed all your company either via the site or match chat (I should include match days/events). May you all have a wonderful time in the upcoming days and to the wind down of 2014, please take care of yourself and let's make 2015 a year where we are all proud. All at Pride of Nottingham wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. You Pies! Notts-Joe and Cheeky.
  7. Dear Community/Visitors, The majority of regular community members and perhaps visitors will have noticed extra additions to PoN's team, several members have kindly offered to help our site and it only seems right that I welcome them within a topic. @hissingdwarf @PTID1862 and @Canadian All join the ranks as Global Moderators, they have joined @tonyhateley and making a difference within our community. I would like to personally thank them for coming on board and joining in, their help with various things means we have the right balance to continue moving forward. @Northants Pie has joined our media team, as you will know doubt have seen his Youth Team Reports (if you haven't please give them a read). Again I would like to thank Northants especially for taking the time to write up these reports. Please do welcome the new teams members. --------- There's no real major difference but we have a few things in the pipeline, some features will be announced after Christmas which I hope adds to the community spirit with have here on Pride of Nottingham. --------- Lastly, I have updated our logo to make it more fitting within this festive period. It's quite a difficult time for me personally, Christmas always is because of loved one's who are no longer around and I am sure I'm not alone here. It just seems right to try and bring a bit of festive spirit, no it's not major news but I think you will agree it looks nice. You might also notice the flurry of snowflakes which fall when you navigate the site. The snowflakes can be turned off/on - Within the main navigation you will see the button to toggle the setting, some might prefer it to be off but you can choose. As default it comes turned on, please do turn it off if you prefer. Bah humbug to you if you do! Thanks for reading folks, Notts-Joe
  8. Dear Community/Visitors, When you visit PoN on your mobile or tablet, you should receive a message telling you that an app called tapatalk is available to be used. You don't have to use it, simply click the cross and continue as you was. However, if you do - you will see that it makes the forum more accessible. You will be able to use smilies, upload, respond, see all the latest activity and navigate the site much quicker on your handheld device. Over the next few days we hope to promote this feature quite heavily, as members will receive notification straight to their devices (if you choose to allow the app). The app is available on all popular formats, Android, IOS and Windows. Enjoy, PoN's Team
  9. Dear Community/Visitors, We have recently upgraded our chat system which brings a couple of new features to our screens. The recent upgrade (although it looks the same) it does smarten up the system, next to the "Chat Now (No.)", you will find the chat options which now includes a way in which you can manage the system better. It also allows you to block guests or members in which you don't wish to speak to (this is of course optional). As before, you can change your 'Chat Status' and even set yourself to "Availible" - "Busy" - "Invisible" and "Offline". In the standard chat, you will see "Smilies" - "Games" - "Chat Time" - "Report Conversation" - "Block User" and "Clear Conversation". Report Conversation will e-mail @notts-joe, so if you receive unwanted messages which you feel a member of the PoN Team should be aware about, please make sure you use this feature. If the problem persists, temporarily block the user (which is also a new feature). Similar features can be found in the "Chat Room", however chat mods will have the power to kick unwanted users or even ban them. I advise moderator discretion when it comes to length, they will be the final decision with regards to the length. As the majority of you will know, on match days @anonypie manages our match day interaction and it's proved to be quite popular. This upcoming season we will be pushing our match chat and hope to introduce another chat moderator, We will be discussing this with anony but if you're interested in helping please add a message below or privately pm(message) Notts-Joe. Kind Regards, PoN's Team
  10. Dear Community/Visitors, I have news to share with regards to the site, I hope these changes will be helpful towards allowing us to progress further. Firstly we will be experiencing some down time, however please don't panic. It's a simple move to a new server, this will see the site speed up and allow us to feel comfortable for much longer than we can on our existing server. At 12:00am (UTC) Dublin, Edinburgh, Lisbon, London time. I will start the move, please do bear with us during this transition period. Updates will follow on our social pages, please be sure to keep an eye out for these. Match Threads will be become a little more visual, hopefully this small tweak will aid us with interacting before games, it will provide useful details at the very start. Enabling members to enjoy pre match discussions, yet also carrying them on during and after the final whistle. Pride of Nottingham will be focusing all our types of content from this point on and I am hopeful that an alternative content system will not be far from happening. Another new feature will hopefully emerge – Newsletters! I try to send out a monthly update, although the new system will allow you to get new content quicker. It will feature multiple types of newsletters, so you can subscribe to which you would prefer and also we will keep you updated on the latest news. Kind Regards, PoN's Team
  11. It was around this time last year I was gearing towards promoting Pride of Nottingham. Armed with our flyers and my two eldest children, I had mixed feelings about the site. I firmly believe in the path PoN is on, however I wasn't sure I'd be the right person for the job. My main concerns was covering Notts in terms of content and articles, I don't worry about this because I know there's great people out there who value my efforts. I've learned a lot, I get a lot of happiness from the site and it's even brought me closer to my own family. The friends I've made have been wonderful, so without going on. Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year! YOU PIES! Joe & Cheeky
  12. Welcome to Pride of Nottingham, We're a Fan Site dedicated to Notts County FC, It's our goal to bring a competitive friendly fan site which focuses on key features to the members of our community. It's early days, although with support we can provide somewhere for fans to be truly proud of. I'd like to urge anyone who agrees/likes our sites message to get behind the community and help out by doing whatever they can. This may be helping promote the site, posting or offering to help by joining our team. If you are interested in writing content for us please contact me. The site provides many features for fans to interact, the blog and gallery system will hopefully play a major role in our site as we would like to share life as a Notts County fan. These can be used to interact with us and the community by sharing special moments and we hope to attract match day bloggers and fans who also like to share pictures of match days. Our site is integrated with Facebook, with an easy one click registration which just requires you to fill in minimal information compared to our full registration form. All our skins are mobile friendly, although we have a special lite featured one especially created for mobiles and tablets. Each month from this point on we will be running a member of the month competition which is aimed at praising the dedication of the members. We will also be running many different aspects and from time to time, you find us running fun competitions. Please keep tuned for our announcement regarding a raffle and a prize give-away. Enjoy visiting us here at PoN (UNCFS), Notts-Joe
