  1. Last year John Sheridan famously cancelled Notts County's Christmas party as the team was lurching from one defeat to another. This year, things are much different and as such the players have had their do in Dublin (as Adam Collin's Insta page showed). However, Sam Allardyce has recently made the news after saying he would cancel Everton's Christmas party. So over to you - should a struggling team have their Chrimbo do cancelled and focus fully on the games, or could that end up being counter-productive and harm morale and team cohesion further? (After all, Notts' slump didn't end after their party was cancelled)
  2. Notts County have reportedly been ordered to pay former manager John Sheridan £125,000 following an appeal against the grounds of his sacking. The 53-year-old was let go from his role at Meadow Lane in January after losing nine games in a row, the club saying he was dismissed for gross misconduct after he was banned from the touchline for five games following a rant at officials in the game against Wycombe Wanderers in December. The Football Association released details of Sheridan’s outburst to referee Eddie Ilderton and fourth official Matthew Donohue in that game, which Notts lost 2-0. “You're a f****** c***,” Sheridan said to Donohue, before shouting at Ilderton: “You're a f****** disgrace, you f****** useless, you've not f****** got anything right today, you should be f****** ashamed, you're f****** ****, my kids aren't going to get any f****** Christmas presents because of f****** you.” Sheridan launched an appeal against his sacking, claiming gross misconduct was not the sole reason. And according to the Daily Mail, the arbitration panel in Nottingham decided in Sheridan's favour - the LMA pointing out his sacking came five games and 23 days after the defeat to Wycombe - and ordered Notts to pay him compensation. The report goes on to say that Sheridan, who is currently out of work after leaving Oldham Athletic, may pursue County Court action if the club refuses to pay. There have been no confirmations or comments from Sheridan, the LMA or Notts.

  3. 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."

  4. Notts County owner Alan Hardy has accused former manager John Sheridan and the League Managers Association of 'trying to run a coach and horses through the concept of respect in football' after appealing his dismissal for gross misconduct. The 52-year-old was sacked by Hardy in January, just over three weeks after a verbal outburst at officials during the Magpies' 2-0 defeat by Wycombe Wanderers in mid-December, and the Notts owner admitted that Sheridan was let go due to gross misconduct rather than the side's poor form. The Football Association handed out a five-match touchline ban and Hardy has hit out at both Sheridan - now managing at Oldham Athletic again - and the LMA for appealing his dismissal. "I was astonished to receive notification from the LMA that Mr Sheridan has decided to appeal his dismissal," Hardy said in a statement released to Press Association Sport. "We have sent back an extremely robust five page document re-affirming the transparent reasons behind our course of action. "As well as being owner of Notts County, I am heavily involved in youth football, running a series of teams at Under 8s and Under 10s. "Every week I see the influence that the professional game has on young boys and girls from as young as six years old. "The conduct shown by Mr Sheridan towards the match officials in this instance was nothing short of scandalous. I am not prepared to tolerate any member of my staff abusing referees and officials in this manner. "I fully appreciate that the League Managers Association have a duty of care to represent their membership. "But surely even a professional body like the LMA realise they are being asked to defend the indefensible. "Mr Sheridan clearly believes this 'industrial language' is used in everyday workplaces. Not in my place of work, it's not. And nor at my football club. "The FA clearly felt that it was a case of the gravest nature. "A five match touchline ban is one of the lengthiest and strongest punishments they have issued to any manager this season. "For me, this is not just about John Sheridan, the LMA and Notts County. "This case has much wider significance and repercussions for the English game as a whole. "Over the past years, the FA have instigated a series of very admirable 'Respect' initiatives designed to improve conduct across the game. "I'd think we'd all agree that excellent progress has been made but that much more clearly still needs to be done. "Mr Sheridan and the LMA are effectively trying to run a coach and horses through the concept of respect in football. Potentially, they can set us back years if they continue to appeal the decision. "Needless to say, we will be contesting any appeal by Mr Sheridan and the LMA, but I do genuinely think people should consider their actions very carefully before embarking on a course which may embarrass themselves in particular and the game of football in general."

  5. Notts County goalkeeper Adam Collin has admitted that the season has been tough so far, but believes that the Magpies are "steadying the ship" following Kevin Nolan's arrival. The 32-year-old joined Notts in the summer following a career which began at Newcastle United and saw him turn out for the likes of Rotherham United, Carlisle United and non-league Workington AFC. He told the Eastwood & Kimberley Advertiser: “The move to Notts County came about as soon as John Sheridan and Mark Crossley were appointed as the new management team. “I was out of contract after a successful three years at Rotherham United and they got in touch asking if I would like to come in as No.1 goalkeeper. “It’s been a very tough season so far. We started well and then all of a sudden the wheels fell off and we lost 10 games in a row. “We were conceding too many goals and not scoring enough and now, with a change of manager, we look to be steadying the ship and getting back to looking a solid team. “The new manager has come in and looked to make us harder to beat and more solid. We have good players we just needed a settled shape to the team and to be more organised.” Collin also spoke about playing in the derby against Mansfield and keeping a clean sheet, as well as feeling pride at having youngsters from his academy in attendance. He added: “The derby was a great game to play in. The atmosphere was fantastic and to get a clean sheet and to make a good save off the deflected shot was the highlight for me, plus to have quite a few of my young goalies from the academy there watching was a big bonus.” The AC1 Goalkeeping Academy is based in Mansfield and currently has around 30 youngsters learning the ropes - for more information click here.
