  1. Tonight England wrap up their Group G campaign at the 2018 World Cup with a clash against Belgium in Kaliningrad. There was some anxiety beforehand about if England had to get a result to qualify against one of the most star-studded teams of the tournament, but with both sides having won both their group games so far, the pressure is very much off. Indeed, there is now a very weird scenario in which the losing team will arguably benefit more, as they will end up in the easier of the two knockout routes, and with Group H being so weak, it's not like facing the winner of that group will be an especially taxing prospect. So let's get your thoughts - how/where are you following the game? Who would you like Gareth Southgate to pick for his starting XI? Should England opt for a weakened team and perhaps even seek not to win (although that's very contentious ground and would lead to the team being pilloried by the press and potentially get in trouble with the FIFA overlords), or should victory always be sought?
  2. Former Notts County manager Sam Allardyce says he is "jealous" of Gareth Southgate and believes it should be him leading England at the World Cup in Russia. The 63-year-old left his post as England coach by mutual agreement in September 2016 after only one match in charge, following claims by a newspaper that he gave advice on how to "get around" player transfer rules. In a BBC documentary to air on Sunday, Allardyce said of his departure: "That decision was made very hastily. "Jealous is what I feel. Massively disappointed. That should be me there. Unfortunately because of the circumstances that wasn't the case. "One night I was playing golf - next day they said you can't carry on. And I still don't know why… because in the cold light of day, there was no substance, nothing behind it. "If a bit more time was taken, a bit more patience, I believe I should still be the England manager. "I've bounced back now - and while I will be extremely jealous I will be watching Gareth and the lads and hope they do extremely well."

  3. 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."

  4. Grimsby Town chairman John Fenty has declared that he is open to speaking to Sol Campbell about their vacant managerial position. The former England defender, who had a one-game spell at Notts County in 2009, told a podcast last week that he could not understand why "one of the greatest minds in football" was being overlooked for jobs. Campbell was speaking after failing to land the Oxford United job, but Fenty has said he is willing to speak to the 43-year-old as he searches for a replacement for Russell Slade. Speaking to BBC Radio Humberside, Fenty said: "I'm surprised we haven't heard from Sol. He said that clubs aren't taking a punt on young managers. We'd have a chat with him." In response, Campbell told Sky Sports show The Debate: "Definitely interested". When asked if Grimsby being 18th in League Two would put him off, he replied: "No. I'm from a hard-working background. It's all about getting in there, that's the kind of guy I am."

  5. 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."

    Kevin Nolan for England?

    Alan Hardy is a massive fan of Kevin Nolan (we all are, to be honest) and has once again suggested that he is destined for the very top, such as the England job. While there's no doubting Nolan has worked wonders so far and is a very skilled manager, I want to know your thoughts on: - Whether it's a bit premature to make a statement like this so early on in Nolan's managerial career - Whether Nolan would be suited to international football - Whether Nolan should even consider taking the job, what with all the baggage that comes with managing England
  8. Notts County chairman Alan Hardy has tipped Kevin Nolan to become manager of England in the future. The former Leyton Orient boss has seen his stock rise since arriving at Meadow Lane a year ago, leaving the Magpies out of relegation trouble by the end of the 2016-17 season. Since then, Notts have risen to second place in League Two on goal difference, having held top spot on several occasions, and have the best home record outside of the Premier League in 2017. Nolan also scooped the manager of the month award for September and won another nomination for Notts’ results in November. “I’ve often spoken of my admiration for Kevin as both a person and a manager,” Hardy told the Nottingham Post. "What he has done here, in such a short space of time, has been nothing short of remarkable. “What he and the players have achieved has surpassed all of our expectations and the progress has been remarkable. “I’ve no doubt in my mind that Kevin will go on to manage at the elite level and I am certain that he will go on to manage England at some point. “I just think he has all the tools you need both in his ability to motivate players, the uncanny knack he has of understanding them and being able to relate to them.

    Kevin Nolan takes to MOTD2 Extra

    Notts County boss Kevin Nolan was one of the guests on BBC football show MOTD2 Extra on Sunday. Alongside host Garth Crooks, former Everton midfielder Leon Osman and New York Times journalist Rory Smith, he gave his thoughts on a number of football stories, including Manchester United's defeat at Huddersfield Town. On Jose Mourinho's post-match rant at the John Smith's Stadium "Mourinho was very angry with what happened. I'm sure he will have told the team what he was going to say on television. "When you are as big as Man United and results come that way he has a duty to tell the truth. Herrera said the same. They are well rehearsed. "Huddersfield was rocking before the game and the players were up for it. United's players have to realise what to expect. They have to take responsibility." On the Terriers beating United "It shows how much it meant that David Wagner said it was one of his proudest moments. "Huddersfield have set the stall out now. They have to stay at that level. If they do that they will find success. "Wagner will not have had to get his players up for that game. "I remember it when we got promoted with Bolton and beat Man United at Old Trafford. You remember everything you are told to do because you are so up for the game." On West Ham United striker - and former Newcastle United teammate - Andy Carroll "Andy Carroll is a good example of someone who trains differnt to how he plays in games. "He is around in games, 100mph, jumping into people in games but on a cold Monday morning on the training ground he has his hat on, huddling." On Tottenham Hotspur and England youngster Harry Winks "I watched Harry Winks a couple of seasons ago in a game against West Ham. He was a big part of helping Tottenham turn the game around. "Living down there, you hear a lot from Spurs fans who are excited about him. "We are League Two and we have to wait for all the business above us to be done. We get the lads on loan who have not been able to find a League One club. "When you get a gem like Winks, Pochettino has clearly realised he doesn't need to send him on loan and use him in the right way."

  11. Alan Hardy has described manager Kevin Nolan as Notts County's "figurehead", similar to what Sir Alex Ferguson was at Manchester United. The former Bolton Wanderers, Newcastle United and West Ham midfielder has just committed to the Meadow Lane hotseat by penning a new three-year deal. Nolan helped the Magpies avoid relegation last season following his appointment in January, turning around a side that had lost 10 games on the trot. This season, the 35-year-old overcame a 3-0 defeat at Coventry City on the opening day of the season to steer Notts to second in League Two, boasting an eight-game unbeaten run. Notts owner Hardy acknowledges that Nolan is likely to move on to a Premier League club or even the role of England manager one day, but insists that, for the time being, he is on board for the journey. “I know that Kevin is one of our future stars in the game. I acknowledge that one day he’s probably going to be a manager in the Premier League or maybe even manager of England," Hardy told the Nottingham Post. “At some point he may move on so we need to embed the foundations for the next three years. He can take this club forward. “I’ve got limited experience in football but people who have been around the game a long time like Darren Fletcher and the people he’s speaking to, also people like Les Bradd rate Kevin right up there with the best managers they've seen. “We talk about being on a journey. That means the Championship. Internally we present this club like we want to be in the Championship next year. "I know we have to go through League One, but the infrastructure we’re putting in place, the culture we’re building, it’s the start of the journey. “Kevin can lead people. He’s a leader of men. He’s been captain of three Premier League clubs. He oozes confidence, character and passion to galvanise people. “The club needed a leader and he’s the figurehead. Every club who has that, like Sir Alex (Ferguson), has done well. “This was a club which was intensive care. It was 91st in the Football League. They had one foot in the National League. “The word which was used was toxic in terms of the atmosphere. What an incredible turnaround it’s been."

  12. What an evening it's been - already England Women reached the second round of the World Cup, and they've only gone one better by beating Norway and making the quarter-finals! Now, England have technically reached the quarters before, but in the past the competition was smaller and the second round was effectively the last eight. So, they've made history today, by beating a pretty good and highly-fancied Norway side 2-1 - and how good was Lucy Bronze's goal?! Absolute thunderbolt that will certainly be shown on the various social media channels in a few hours! Could this be the best England Women side we've ever had?
