  1. Can't believe it's been a whole six years since that titanic encounter at the City Ground between Nottingham Forest and Notts County. Honestly remember it as if it were yesterday. One of those games where, even in defeat, you can't help but applaud your team. Very much like last night against Scunthorpe, to be fair, but the added element of the local rivalry just made it so much more intense. Here are the highlights of that game.
  2. Notts County began the 2018-19 season with a point in a tricky and ultimately underwhelming 0-0 draw with Colchester United at Meadow Lane. The Magpies considerably strengthened their ranks over the summer with several high-profile signings rocking up at the club so the hope was of hitting the ground running against somewhat mediocre opposition. It didn't go that way though, with both sides looking rusty in the first League Two game of the campaign, and the outcome was a share of the spoils and a clean sheet apiece. Nathan Thomas came close when he controlled on the edge of the area before trying his luck with a superb chipped effort, but the opposition keeper was able to palm the effort away. Colchester, meanwhile, had several attempts to breach Ross Fitzsimons' clean sheet but in the end it was honours even. How did Notts boss Nolan and the fans react to the stalemate? Pride of Nottingham takes a closer look. Kevin Nolan on the game “There’s lots of positives to take from it. It wasn’t the free-flowing, absolutely fantastic game or fantastic performance, but what we have seen is lots of things we can take out to be excited about.” The Black and White Army Liampie it was okay for the first game but if kn wants fans to give their complete backing he needs to get them playing football. there was a lot of negativity flying around and i think the performance burst a few bubbles but its early. Samwatto2008 Really disappointing performance from Tootle. Really let the defence down today, caught out too many times letting Szmodics run free. He also failed to release Boldewjin a number of times and failed to utilise his strengths. Overall though I am happy with a point against Colchester as they will be pushing play offs this year. Think if Norris came on or started this would have been a different game. Stead put in a lot of effort which saw him get an applause when subbed but he was missing and just isn't going to find form this season I don't think. Thomas looked quick and sharp, Hemmings also. Not sure which CB I would drop at the moment though as Hall needs to be in. Heart says Duffy, Head says Brisely. Happy with areas of the game though and there is still lots to work on. The Heff It looked like a team that was new with playing with each other, I think several players was nervous and found it hard to lift their performance accordingly. KingKev It wasn't as bad as some are suggesting, Notts did play well in spells but too many players had an off day. Menzinho I think Colchester will be pushing for play-offs this season, so all in all not a terrible start to the season. The expectation was high, but as we've seen through pre-season no-one's really got going yet and the wayward passes coupled with some terrible first touches made it feel like just another pre-season game. Very hard to really gauge anything from the match, Cambridge away will be interesting though, both teams should be going for the win... CliftonMagpie It's early days, but I felt like Notts was quite relaxed and never focused on pressuring Colchester. They looked a good side and I would be more positive if I was a U's fan, Notts just needs to focus more on passing forward. Ian Ale Goode no excuses we was rubbish end of let's hope we improve big time Mick Jones Need to give the team time to gel and that won't happen overnight. Also the likes of Hemmings and Dennis and a few others have yet to reach full fitness yet. My only real concern is that we're still poor at the back with no real changes having been made in that area of the team. Jimmy Gee Poor start to season. Should be playing to a plan from kick off... there was none! Cecil Richardson Stead is not a target man why cannot Nolan see that Dave Woolley Should have played Dennis with Hemmings from the off. Then if Dennis got tired change it. There was no way we were going to win a battle in the air.... Steve Blyth Never first to the ball and to be honest half of them didn’t look fit !! Dan Simpson It's tough to pass the ball around though when they do and everyone starts moaning because it's not going forward. If you want Notts to play football... Michael Rimmingtom 100% crap ok first game but expected better. Play football not hoofing the ball and hoping for the best. Still a points a point. Alex West Think we missed husin. Hewitt was poor. Vaughan was ok but lacked the options. Boldewjin was targeted but created the most. It will come together I'm certain of that. Just a quick note - we lost 3-0 first game last season. Antony Staples Poor... long ball doesn't work for the players we have!! Nick Norman First game don't panic. They are favourites for a playoff place Ian Ale Goode total rubbish new team same old tactics get a grip Nolan no team work hoof the ball back passing was rubbish one chance to score all that money spent and no improvement Michael Hill Frustrating, Dennis is wasted.

  5. Notts County began the 2018-19 season with a point in a tricky and ultimately underwhelming 0-0 draw with Colchester United at Meadow Lane. Although the U's appeared the brighter of the two sides at the off, the Magpies almost took a fourth-minute lead through debutant Enzio Boldewijn. The Dutchman was able to let rip with a low shot from a good position but visiting goalkeeper Dillon Barnes was able to palm the effort behind for a corner. But Colchester then threatened midway through the first half through Frank Nouble, whose header from Ryan Jackson's cross flashed inches wide of County's far post. The hosts received a let off in the second half when keeper Ross Fitzsimons appeared to handle the ball outside of his area after Jackson had sent Nouble through on goal. Nathan Thomas then came close with a superb chance when he controlled on the edge of the area before trying his luck with a chipped effort, only for Barnes to backtrack and tip the ball over for a corner. Colchester came close to claiming victory with 15 minutes remaining when Aaron Collins teed up Tom Eastman, who struck the bar with a curled effort from the edge of the box, but ultimately the spoils were shared.

  6. Kevin Nolan has revealed that Richard Duffy will be Notts County's captain in Saturday's League Two opener against Colchester United. The defender held the armband for most of last season as Michael O'Connor was sidelined through a long-term injury. Now that O'Connor has left, Nolan has stated that Duffy will continue as skipper "for the foreseeable future" but says it's not a permanent appointment. “Richard Duffy will lead the team out on Saturday,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “I haven’t made my mind up who is going to be the club captain yet. “Richard stepped in so well last year for Ocky (during Michael O’Connor’s injury) that he will continue to do it for the foreseeable future until I actually pinpoint one. “It’s probably been the last thing I’ve been thinking of this week although people keep pushing me on it. “I expect him to do the job that he’s done since I came into the club, he’s been absolutely fantastic doing that.” 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.

  7. Alan Hardy has issued a call for more Notts County fans to get behind the team this upcoming season. The Magpies have invested heavily this summer following an above-expectations finish last term, qualifying for the playoffs. "A general rule of thumb is that if you get results right on the pitch, most other things will follow," Hardy wrote on the Notts website. "We've certainly seen that with major increases in supporters, hospitality sales, merchandise sales and other revenue streams. "I've lost count of the number of fans who have contacted me to say the atmosphere at the club has changed beyond belief, how lapsed fans are coming back in their droves, how parents and grandparents are bringing their children and grandchildren to Meadow Lane for their first taste of professional football and how we are all enjoying - and not enduring - watching this great club of ours. "But, please, we need even more of you. Our season ticket holder base has gone up by 35 percent but that needs to grow still further. "Season ticket holders are the lifeblood of our club. If you have not already bought one, please do your very best to do so in the next few days - our current discounted rate is due to expire on Saturday. "For those of you unable to buy a season ticket, please make an extra effort to come to as many games as you possibly can. Your support really does make a difference. "I'd like to see a crowd in excess of 6,500 on Saturday for our opening game against Colchester. It would mean a huge amount to me, to Kevin and all the players. "A league season is a marathon not a sprint but to see you all on Saturday would be a great way to welcome our new signings to Meadow Lane and to show the fighting spirit and passion our support can create. "I hope and believe this can be a very special season and, with your support, it will be."

  8. Noor Husin has claimed that Notts County's playoff heartache last season will prove a superb incentive for the Magpies to get the promotion job done this time round. Notts were in and around the League Two's top three for much of the 2017-18 campaign but stuttered in the final few months to finish in the playoffs, which they subsequently lost to eventual winners Coventry City. “Last season will only make us stronger and the boys know what it takes now,” Husin told the Nottingham Post. “Hopefully we can go a step further and get that promotion everybody is after. “Everyone was bitterly disappointed with how last season ended after doing so well. But it’s only going to spur us on to go up and I am sure that will give us that extra bit of motivation we need.” Husin has also spoken of his international call-up with Afghanistan, expressing pride at being convoked by his nation, but he says he will put club before country this month. “I have been called up by Afghanistan, but they have a friendly in a couple of weeks’ time [against Palestine on August 19] which I am not going to,” he said. “But when there is an international break I think I will be going. “I was called up a couple of years ago, but I put it on hold at the time. I am delighted to be called up and my family are proud. I am really looking forward to it. The games are going to be in Qatar, China and places like that. "They keep track of me and I speak to the manager who has just been appointed. He used to coach in the Dutch league. He’s been watching my games and they keep an eye on me to see how I am getting on."

  9. Kevin Nolan has spoken about Notts County duo Lewis Alessandra and Will Patching, praising the former and providing an update on the latter. The 29-year-old attacker scored against Basford and Leicester City and is pushing for a start in the League Two opener against Colchester United. Manchester City academy product Patching, meanwhile, made his debut for the Magpies at the weekend when he came on as a substitute in the 2-0 defeat at Luton Town. “Lewi is just a quality player, a quality lad and a good kid,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “He is lovely to be around and is great on the training ground. “The lads we have brought in have taken him to new levels which is good.” As for Patching, he said: “It’s going to take him a while to get up to speed. He is way behind the lads, but he is training fully now with the boys. “He got 15 to 20 minutes on Saturday and he will now be playing in a game on Tuesday to get his minutes up. “But I think we will be seeing him in the League Cup game when we can get him extra minutes and get him in a proper competitive game.” 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.

  10. Kevin Nolan has admitted that Notts County were punished for making “strange and sloppy” decisions in their 2-0 loss at Luton Town on Saturday. The Hatters secured a 2-0 win at Kenilworth Road through former Magpies loanee Jorge Grant and Elliott Lee. The latter scored from close range after Ross Fitzsimons failed to collect a header on the goal line following a corner. “I was a bit disappointed really in what we’ve been trying to do and what we’ve been about in pre-season,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “I thought we were second best certainly in the second half. “In the first we contained them and I think they only had one shot on target. But in the second half we made some strange and sloppy decisions and we were punished for it.” 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.

  11. Notts County manager Kevin Nolan has stressed that each of his players will have a chance this weekend to earn a starting XI spot in their League Two opener against Colchester United. The first team travel to Luton Town on Saturday, while some senior players are also expected to feature at Carlton Town on Saturday in their final pre-season matches. The Magpies will open their campaign against the U's at Meadow Lane on August 4 and Nolan wants all of his charges to be "selfish" in their pursuit of a first-team berth. “There’s still plenty to play for,” Nolan told the official club website. “I don’t know what’s going to happen between now and next week. “Football changes minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour. This will be a massive 90 minutes for them. “I’ve told everyone to be selfish to make sure they’re ready come Saturday week because they never know, they could get that call.” 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.

  12. Notts County defender Ben Hall has tipped Kane Hemmings to have a good season as he admits he is the most difficult striker to deal with in training. Following last season's playoff near-miss, the Magpies set about bolstering their ranks with big money signings, Hemmings recruited from Oxford United for a six-figure sum. "I'd probably say Kane Hemmings is the toughest to mark at the moment with his movement. His hold up play is good too," Brighton loanee Hall told the Nottingham Post. "He was holding defenders off against Leicester so I think he'll be good for us." Hall also commented on Kevin Nolan's training regime, adding: "It's been difficult, especially last week. It's not nice, but it's what you've got to do to be ready for the start of the season. "There's one or two things still to come together yet. We've got another two weeks to get ready. We'll get that right and be ready for the start of the season."

  13. Sam Allardyce has admitted that he knew he would be criticised for leaving Notts County in 1999 for Bolton Wanderers but stated that it was an opportunity he couldn't miss and so had to be "selfish". In an interview published in "Record Breakers - The Inside Story of Notts County’s Momentous 1997/98 Title Win", the former Magpies boss was asked why he decided to up sticks. "I think I had to be selfish for myself," he replied. "There was a great affinity with the club and a great relationship that I had built. This opportunity came along where I had to be selfish for myself, and not feel anything other than the fact I have got to do it for me. "I knew I would be criticised for leaving, but there were other circumstances I don’t really want to go into that actually helped that decision to be made. "The real decision was that this was a football club that gave me my career in football, gave me my dream, and gave me everything I wanted to achieve. "Even though I’m not north-west or Bolton-born and bred, I am an adopted Boltonian. I arrived there at 15 and married a Bolton girl. "The new stadium at Bolton – the Reebok Stadium – to walk in the middle of that and say, “I’m back where I always wanted to be,” to try and take that club forward, that became the next challenge. "All that I did at Limerick, Blackpool and Notts County, all that I’d learned down there in terms of finding the right solutions to problems when we were financially strapped – I think Bolton at that stage were £45m in the red, which doesn’t actually seem a lot now but then that was a bankrupt football club really. "I had the tools to manage all of that because of what I’d done at Limerick, Blackpool and Notts County. That apprenticeship stood me in good stead to move on, but I’ll never forget, never forget that particular season. Ever."

  14. Kevin Nolan has spoken highly of Notts County academy product Dongda He and is confident of the club bringing through youngsters of high pedigree in the coming years. The Magpies have experienced a drought in talented academy players coming through the ranks to establish themselves in the senior team, with only Curtis Thompson and Haydn Hollis having made the breakthrough recently. However, with He looking like a real talent and the likes of Remaye Campbell, Pierce Bird, Alex Howes and new recruits Tom Crawford and Will Patching, the future is looking bright for those in black and white. "It's fantastic. It's been a while coming,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. "With Dongda, we only just got his visa a few weeks ago, but we've got high hopes for him. "There's a number of young lads in our system who we feel can make an impact. Tom Crawford, who we got from Chester, you can see he's got a brilliant attitude. Alex Howes, young Spike, has been great. "We've got high hopes for a few of them. We'll see them in and around the first team more this season because the squad is a lot younger than last season. They'll get chances during the season.” Focusing on He, Nolan added: "Dongda did really well. It took him a little bit of time to get used to the game, but we expected that as he's only been training with us for a week or two,” he said. "He's got real ability and we'd like to release that at some point. He's under no pressure though. None at all. We want to create an environment where he can thrive here."

  15. Another weekend, another pre-season friendly, another seven notches on the calendar, another week closer to the start of the 2018-19 season. On Saturday, Notts County had the privilege of facing none other than the team that defied odds of 5,000-1 to win the Premier League title in undoubtedly the biggest fairy tale in sporting history, ever. Although Leicester City have not been able to mount another title challenge since the magical 2015-16, they nonetheless enjoyed a superb Champions League run in 2016-17 and finished in the top half of the table last time out. But obviously none of that compares to the opportunity of facing the oldest professional Football League club in the world at the magical Meadow Lane, does it? And the Magpies got off to a great start through Lewis Alessandra, though goals from Wes Morgan, Hamza Choudhury, Demarai Gray and Islam Slimani saw the Foxes eventually run out 4-1 winners. Pride of Nottingham was at the San Sirrel for the game and took plenty of photos of the Black and White Army. See if you're among the Faces of PON!

  16. Notts County manager Kevin Nolan has thanked club owner Alan Hardy for his backing in the transfer market although he has not shut the door on another recruit should the opportunity arise. The Magpies have enjoyed a superb summer in terms of transfers, bringing in several high profile signings including Kane Hemmings, Kristian Dennis, Enzio Boldewijn, David Vaughan and Andy Kellett. Speaking after the loss to Leicester City, Nolan said he is delighted with the business made so far but, echoing prior comments made by Hardy, added that he will keep his eyes open for particularly exceptional additions. "You never say never. There's life left in us, but if this is the squad in August I'll be very pleased," he told the Nottingham Post. "I'm looking forward to working with them. If there's someone who whets the appetite then I'll speak the boss and we'll see what we can do. "He's done great business for me though, getting the lads we've got and getting the lads in early so we can work with them. "I won't be banging his door down. He's done great for us, but if that one special one pops up then we'd have a discussion."

  17. Notts County boss Kevin Nolan has claimed that his players will learn a lot from their second 4-1 loss in a row in Saturday's pre-season friendly loss to Leicester City. Lewis Alessandra gave the Magpies the lead but, despite putting in a much improved performance to the game against Derby County last week, the Foxes struck back through Wes Morgan, Hamza Choudhury, Demarai Gray and Islam Slimani. "There was lots of good stuff to come out of it," Nolan told the Nottingham Post. "We played some really good stuff at times. "We expected the quality they brought. I've just said to the lads, that's what happens when you play top opposition. "They're Premier League players and they'll do what they've done today. They've capitalised on mistakes. "They've scored from a corner and then two minutes later we've given the ball away (and Leicester scored). They'll punish you. "That's what it's all about. They've shown some lovely finishes, but we'll learn from that."

  18. Kevin Nolan has admitted that Notts County were like "rabbits in the headlights" when they had possession against Derby County and wants more confidence from them ahead of the Leicester City friendly. The Magpies lost 4-1 against the Rams last week and Nolan gave a scathing assessment of his players, and although he admitted that they've been put through their paces this week, he wants a better performance on Saturday. “I am looking for them to be tighter and that they don’t switch off as much,” he told the Nottingham Post. “But they’ve had a tough week and they will be playing with tired minds. “I want us to relax when we get the ball back and try to keep it in certain areas. “I thought we turned the ball over quite cheaply at times on Saturday. “But when we did keep it, we actually did some good stuff with it. “I want them to believe in themselves because it looked like they were rabbits in the headlights when they got possession back. “We have tried a few things to drill into them so they can learn from it and hopefully it bodes well for Saturday.” 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.

  19. Notts County manager Kevin Nolan has revealed that Kristian Dennis is in line for his first pre-season appearance this weekend. The forward, who scored 21 goals for Chesterfield last season, missed the Magpies' opening three friendlies due to injury. However, Dennis is now back to fitness and Nolan says he will be involved against Leicester City on Saturday at Meadow Lane. "He's back," Nolan told the official club website. "We were gutted when we realised he wasn't going to be with us for the last week or two but he's come back and really had a good go. "He's settled in well with the lads and I'm really looking forward to seeing him play at the weekend. "He comes alive in the box. What we've got to do is make sure we're ready to supply him with lots of touches in that area. I'm sure he'll get his rewards. "But it's the same with the others. Jon Stead is at the front in all the running at the minute. You wouldn't have thought he's 35 - it's unbelievable. He's come back absolutely flying. "Kane Hemmings looked really sharp when he came on last week, too. It's competition for places - it's what we want."

  21. Notts County played their first home game of the 2018-19 programme at the weekend as they hosted Derby County in a pre-season friendly. Magpies boss Kevin Nolan fielded a strong starting XI against the Rams, who have England and Chelsea legend Frank Lampard on board for his first job in management. Things did not go quite to plan for Notts, as teenager Luke Thomas scored twice to send the Rams into a 2-0 half-time lead. Former Notts loanee Mason Bennett and Tom Huddlestone were also on target for the visitors after the break. Kane Hemmings netted a consolation for the Magpies from the penalty spot in what ended up a heavy 4-1 defeat for the hosts, who will have much to ponder following the encounter. Pride of Nottingham was at the San Sirrel for the game and took plenty of photos of the Black and White Army. See if you're among the Faces of PON!

  22. Jon Stead has described Notts County's signing of David Vaughan as a “coup”. The 35-year-old was snapped up by the Magpies following his departure from Nottingham Forest at the end of last season. “It’s a coup isn’t it?” Stead told the Nottingham Post. “He’s been at the top level and the way he carries himself and the way he controls the ball, he is very clever. “He is very relaxed and being a striker it’s somebody I look at and know that if I make that double movement, he will see it. “At time we might have lacked that a little bit last season which was that cutting edge and final ball. He will help us with that.” 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.

  23. Notts County will take on Doncaster Rovers and Grimsby Town in the group stage of the EFL Trophy. The Magpies have been placed in Group G of the competition’s Northern section, and will also play one academy side. The 48 EFL clubs have been placed into pre-determined groups, with consideration given to ensure travel time is minimised for supporters and recovery time is maximised for players. Players from EFL clubs who are out on loan in the National League and below are now eligible to feature in the competition. Meanwhile, invited teams have been restricted to fielding two players over the age of 21 and more than 40 first-team appearances.

  24. Kevin Nolan has expressed his delight in seeing Frank Lampard enter the world of management ahead of Saturday's friendly between Notts County and Derby County. The former Chelsea and England midfielder took the reins at Pride Park in May, 15 months after calling time on an illustrious career for club and country. Both Lampard and Nolan were accomplished midfielders and both have entered the world of management at a fairly young age, and the Magpies boss was eager to dispense some advice and information. "He's going to have a lot more sleepless nights," Nolan told the Nottingham Post. "Even kids don't keep you up as much, but he will prosper. "He is a determined character and you could see that in the quality he had as a player. "He will attack management just the same. What he's got to do is appoint a good backroom staff which he seems to have got together quite quickly. "Frank has to trust them and, as long as they are all on the same hymn sheet, I am sure he will be fine. "When you see Frank taking this job, it is a massive risk because he could be sat behind a desk talking about it and being a pundit. "But hats off to him. I am delighted we have got one of the most decorated midfielders managing in English football. "He has taken the plunge and I wish him success in everything he does. If there is anything I can help him with then that's great, but I am sure he will be fine."

  25. Even though we're in the off-season at present, we've still had plenty of football action to go by over the last few weeks. First of all the World Cup, which has been an absolute spectacle from start to near-finish, not to mention England doing so well to get to the semi-finals and indeed continuing their participation with the third-place playoff. At Meadow Lane, meanwhile, we're very much in the full swing of pre-season, with players coming in and friendlies being played out. It's effectively been a seamless transition from international football back to club football, and by the time the World Cup ends, it'll only be a few weeks until the season is back underway! Pride of Nottingham was at Greenwich Avenue for Notts County's 3-1 friendly win over Basford United and was also at club shop on Monday to meet new signings Enzio Boldewijn, David Vaughan and Nathan Thomas. Our photographers took snaps of the action and of the Black & White Army, so why not check out our Faces of PON galleries if you were at the events to see if you're among the papped peeps?
