  1. Former Notts County defender Sol Campbell has suggested that he didn't get the Grimsby Town job due to a lack of experience. The 43-year-old has been linked with a number of managerial roles but is yet to secure his first coaching job since he retired from football in 2011. Campbell, once a star for Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and England was believed to be in talks to take the reins at Oxford United in February but nothing came of it. This led to the one-time Magpie appearance holder to bemoan the fact that "one of the greatest minds in football" was being overlooked for jobs. Campbell was then was invited for an interview with the Mariners, who eventually appointed former Burnley Under-23s coach Michael Jolley. "I went to Grimsby for an interview," Campbell told Sky Sports at the weekend. "I didn't have much time to prepare. "It could be experience, knowing that division, I totally understand and I think it's fair. But you can get people around you who do. I understand there's always a plus and minus in everything you do, but there's experience in knowing the league. "I'm prepared. If I need to get my hands dirty, I'll get my hands dirty. If I need to get someone around me who knows the league, I'll do that. That's all part of building a team together. You need your mini-team around you to help you."

  2. Sol Campbell has claimed that clubs are afraid to appoint "one of the greatest minds in football" after he was overlooked for the Oxford United job. The former England defender - who made one appearance for Notts County during the Munto season - held talks with the U's, who have just recently been taken over by Thai businessman Sumrith Thanakarnjanasuth. However, the League One side are thought to consider former Liverpool, Newcastle United and Wales forward Craig Bellamy as their frontrunner for the reins. "I did go (for the Oxford job) and they didn't accept me," Campbell told the Arsenal podcast Highbury & Heels. "Maybe it was a lack of experience, things like that, but it's a full circle. Experience? How do I get experience? Well, I need a job to get experience. "I don't want to go too low that it's a struggle, and I don't want to go too low that I'm under someone and thinking 'what am I doing here?' I would rather be managing a club myself. "I'm confident and it's not like it's rocket science to run a football club, especially when you get to that level. "If you're intelligent enough and a quick learner you will learn pretty soon, within two or three games, what the team needs, training-wise, to survive in that league, get better in that league, to get in the play-offs or even win the league. "I'm intelligent enough, it's not like I played on a fox and dog pitch all my life. I can't believe some people, I'm one of the greatest minds in football and I'm being wasted because of a lack of experience or 'maybe he talks his mind too much'. "Go to Germany, they love people who speak their minds. They got the jobs. I'm sorry that I've got a mind, but don't be scared of that. That should be something you want at your club, but obviously not."

  3. Kevin Nolan has expressed his eagerness to catch up with former Notts County loanee Marc Bola when the Magpies host Bristol Rovers in the FA Cup on November 3. The Arsenal full-back joined Notts on loan at the start of January and made 13 appearances as the club survived relegation from League Two. Now on loan at the Memorial Stadium, Bola is expected to line up for Rovers as they travel to Meadow Lane for the first round of the world's oldest cup competition. “I am really looking forward to the game and seeing Boles again,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “I was really pleased to get him on the last day of the January window last season and he came here and did well. “I think he learned a lot given what he was doing playing academy football and being in those luscious surroundings that he would have at Arsenal. “He came here and cracked on. He had a fantastic back end to the season and got a really good move to Bristol Rovers. “I wish him well and I hope he is playing when he comes back here. It will be nice to see him and I hope that Jorge Grant, Terry Hawkridge, Liam Walker or Lewis Alessandra gets the better of him.” Share your thoughts about this news story 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.

  4. Notts County have received positive feedback from Arsenal for how they coached Marc Bola during his loan spell at Meadow Lane, Alan Hardy has claimed. The 19-year-old left-back joined the Magpies on loan in January and impressed in his 13 appearances for Kevin Nolan's side. With Notts now likely more in good stead with clubs higher up the football pyramid due to their credentials in handling and nurturing young loanees, it is an avenue that the Magpies owner is looking to pursue. "Marc was a huge success for us and he produced some excellent performances," Hardy told the Nottingham Post. "I received some lovely correspondence from Arsenal saying that he had learned so much from his time with us. "It's good to know we can help these players develop, while obviously helping us at the same time. "The loan market is something we will use before the window shuts and the manager already has targets in mind. "I think the Premier League clubs know that if they send their players to us, we will give them games and ultimately help them develop."

  5. Kevin Nolan has expressed his interest in forging closer links with Arsenal in light of Marc Bola's successful loan spell at Notts County. The young left-back, a product of the Gunners academy, is developing well at Meadow Lane, and has said himself how being at Notts is helping him grow and prosper as a footballer. Nolan is hoping that glowing reports all round will not only enable Bola to return to the Emirates Stadium as a better player, but that the Premier League club will entrust Notts with more loanees in future. "I said to the boss (owner Alan Hardy) the other day that I want teams to think that we are the ones who will look at youngsters and not be afraid to put them in," Nolan told the Nottingham Post. "If you are good enough, you are old enough, in my opinion. You will see that if I feel that the lad is ready then he will be going into the team. "Marc Bola, for example, has flourished since he has been here. He will go back to Arsenal a better player. "With the relationship we have with Arsenal now, if they have another four or five in the pipeline, when we do ring up about them, I hope there is no hesitation because they know they'll get looked after."

  6. Marc Bola has given a positive assessment of his loan spell at Notts County so far, believing himself to be improving as a player. The Arsenal loanee also urges fellow Premier League academy prospects to consider making switches to the Football League, where they can get first-team action in challenging environments. In an interview with the Nottingham Post, the full-back said: "It's been great for me to come here and get experience. There is a difference in terms of the facilities but you just kind of adapt to that. "It was a big step to come out of London, but I am getting used to it. The lads are helping me and taking me round town and I've enjoyed that. "In academy football I am used to the ball being on the floor. You get time and space and you will may be have three options on at one time, but at this level, the ball is in the air a lot more and there's no time. Your first thought when you get the ball is up and over. "But I am enjoying every moment of being here. I can feel myself improving as a player because I am dishing out instructions to others. I have responsibility to be vocal and you are not scared to scream at somebody to say they aren't doing a job. "You're not holding back and you need that responsibility to progress. So when I go back to Arsenal if somebody isn't doing their job I will be on them. But I am enjoying every moment of being here. "If you can get out on loan then I would do it. Under-23s football is good for development but at League Two clubs they are giving youngsters like me a chance and it's such good experience. "You have to earn respect and it turns you into a man. You have to be on it from minute one, or you will get a kick. I am really enjoying my time here and I am improving as a player."
