  1. So here we are in 2018. January, to be precise. A month where everyone's skint after a month of splurging on presents, food and general excesses, and a month where everyone promises themselves that they're going to carry through some resolutions, only to fail two weeks in at the first sign of winter malaise. In the world of football, however, it's pedal to the metal as not only are there plenty of fixtures to get through, but the transfer window reopens, cue players changing clubs and journalists working overtime to churn out all the latest rumours, about 90% of which are complete bovine doo-doo. Over at Meadow Lane, however, there is legitimate cause for concern over the status of two players, namely Ryan Yates and Jorge Grant. As you all know, they're currently on loan at Notts County from Nottingham Forest, and as far as everyone was concerned, the Reds had agreed to let the duo remain over the Trent for the duration of the season. But with Forest sacking Mark Warburton, it presents a possible dilemma as a new manager may decide to recall the two players either to give a go in the team - after all, they're hardly setting the division alight, and eight points above the bottom three in the form they're in is hardly reassuring - or potentially sell on. In a fan forum late last year, Hardy said: "Both players are on loan until the end of the season and, while recall clauses are in place, we are confident they will stay with us for the season." Indeed, the rumour mill has begun turning, with League One side Scunthorpe United believed to be interested in Yates and Championship Norwich City reportedly keeping tabs on Grant, cue nervousness from the Notts faithful. However, even in the worst case scenario where both Grant and Yates are taken off of County's hands this January, there is still solace in the return of two midfielders - one a re-signing, the other having been out for so long that he will feel like a new signing. I am, of course, talking about Liam Noble and Michael O'Connor. Now, obviously Noble and Occy are not like-for-like replacements for Grant and Yates - each player has different styles and characteristics, so let's take a look at how each of them play, as individuals and in the team. Grant is a skilful flair player who likes to take on people, while Yates is a classic box-to-box midfielder who is far better at going forward, and also distributes the ball well. Yates benefits from having experience by his side, it takes the pressure off his play and usually results in more confidence on his part. Both are vastly different going forward, Grant likes to force play, whereas Yates builds carefully and allows for the ball to be passed around. O'Connor is a natural leader, we have missed him in midfield despite the good start and although we are blessed in an offensive mindset, his experience will be a blessing. In games where we struggle to create chances, he will be that player needed to think outside of the box. Defensively he assists also, a massive part of his game which is underappreciated in my opinion. Noble is very similar to O'Connor, yet he's more self-minded - selfish almost - and will end up seeing the headlines before they are written, plus he's great at drifting into space. I feel because Noble is more an attacking minded midfielder who likes to run at players and show his directness, I think it cancels out a potential pairing with O'Connor. If Grant and Yates leave, Noble and Rob Milsom should be paired in midfield, they are more a balance between the lines - both can get forward but Milsom can do the defensive duties. Milsom has a good understanding when it comes to defensive positioning and I feel he links up well when trying to come out of our own half. O'Connor, meanwhile, can be utilised from the bench, or started as an attacking midfielder should Grant and Yates not be around at the Lane any more. Whatever January brings, Notts are very well equipped in midfield and it should remain one of the strongest areas in the squad, with or without Grant and Yates.

  2. Kevin Nolan has provided an injury update on several players ahead of Notts County's home game against Port Vale on New Year's Day. Jonathan Forte, Shola Ameobi and Richard Duffy will face late fitness tests, while Rob Milsom will have to see a specialist. The four players did not take part in Saturday's 1-0 loss at Swindon Town and, while Milsom is definitely out, it will be a case of taking it "day by day" with the other three. Nolan also provided updates on goalkeeper Adam Collin, who is now "a couple of weeks away" from a return, and captain Michael O'Connor, who is now back in training. “They are five lads who could start in the team,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post. “We’ve just got to play it day by day. It just shows that when I talk about how important the depth of the squad is because you can lose four or five in seven days because of this period. “Rob has to go and see a specialist, while Shola, Forte and Duffy are touch and go. “Adam Collin is still a couple of weeks away, while Occy returned to the training pitch this week which was lovely to see him running around the pitch. “But it wasn’t about the lads who were missing on Saturday. I thought the lads who played deserved to get a draw. “They did more than enough, but the defeat just came from sloppy defending on our part.” 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.

  3. Kevin Nolan should find out today if Shola Ameobi, Jonathan Forte and Rob Milsom will be available for Saturday's game with Swindon Town. The trio all missed the 4-1 win over Morecambe on Boxing Day with knocks but Nolan has been monitoring their fitness over the last two days. Notts will be hoping to build on the victory at the Globe Arena to further entrench their position in the top three of League Two. “I am hoping they are all going to be available,” he told the Nottingham Post on Wednesday. “I will know more on Thursday if they are going to have a chance of making the game. “We are hopeful some of them will be back but, as you saw against Morecambe, the lads who came in did a fantastic job. “They will be expecting not to lose their place because of it. That’s why we built the squad we have because it enables us to make changes in what is a very unforgiving league.” 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. Rob Milsom has revealed that Kevin Nolan had given the Notts County players "a kick up the backside" during the break in their League Two game with Forest Green. The Magpies did not replicate the stunning form that saw them shoot to the top of the table in September as the visitors came mighty close to leaving Meadow Lane with all three points. Omar Bugiel had given FGR the lead and they maintained it until the 96th minute, when Milsom struck a late equaliser for a final score of 1-1. Milsom said Nolan had given the players a verbal dressing down at half-time because he was unhappy with the level of performance. “We got a kick up the backside at half-time and we should have done as well because it wasn’t good enough,” he told the Nottingham Post. “We’ve set ourselves a standard and we need to keep to that. We just can’t drop off. “We had a poor result against Mansfield last weekend and we needed to make amends against Forest Green. “But we were especially poor in the first half and at the end of the game he just said it wasn’t good enough. “He said we are going to work hard in the week to put a few things right and then hopefully we will come back and put in the kind of performances we were doing a couple of weeks ago.” 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.

  5. Rob Milsom has admitted that not scoring many goals is something that has bugged him throughout his career but is hoping to chip in with a few more for Notts County by the end of the season. The midfielder got his first goal for the Magpies last Saturday, a 96th-minute equaliser that salvaged a point at Meadow Lane against Forest Green Rovers. “I don’t score many, and it is something that has bugged me throughout my career,” Milsom told the Nottingham Post. “It’s something that I obviously need to do better at, but I think other parts of my game kind of make up for it. “But I was delighted to get the goal even though it wasn’t the best of headers. It went in and I just hope there are more to come. “Obviously it was my first ever goal for the club and it was a good feeling for me and the team to score that late on because it ensured we got the draw. “Hopefully we can put some more runs together and maybe I can chip in with a few goals from now until the end of the season.” 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. Rob Milsom has conceded that Notts County did not play well against Forest Green Rovers and is glad to have got something out of the game. The midfielder's first goal for the club deep into stoppage time at the end of the second half got the better of opposition goalkeeper Sam Russell to salvage a 1-1 draw for the Magpies. "It was an important goal and we needed it because we didn't have the best of performances," Milsom told the official Notts site. "I'm glad we've got something out of the game. "We rightly got a kick up the backside at half-time because it wasn't good enough in the first half. "We've set ourselves standards now and we can't drop off. We had a poor result last weekend and needed to make amends today. "We weren't brilliant in the second half either but we kept going and hopefully that point can mean something come the end of the season." Though Milsom admitted the Magpies were well below par, he praised their ability to still claim a result. "It's just about grinding results out – clean sheets are very important, as is going to the end," he added. "I lost count of the amount of times at Rotherham when we scored in the last minute of games to pick up a draw or a win. "We've got a great team spirit and we went right to the end. If you keep pushing, you will get the goal and that's what happened. "We have to try and rack up as many points as we can until Christmas and we can assess things from there. We aren't getting ahead of ourselves. "The gaffer has said we will work hard in training this week to put a few things right so we can come back and put in the type of performance we were putting in a few weeks ago."

  8. Notts County have stolen a point against Forest Green as Rob Milsom struck in the 96th minute to give his side a 1-1 draw in Saturday's League Two encounter at Meadow Lane. The hosts, playing in front of a bumper crowd of 13,267, had their first chance four minutes in when Carl Dickinson sent a free kick wide of the near post. Following a cagey start, Notts almost took the lead in the 25th minute as FGR defender Mark Roberts headed the ball back towards his own goalkeeper, who scrambled back but was lucky to see it go wide. The Magpies picked up the pace afterwards but were left rattled when Forest Green broke the deadlock on the half-hour mark through Omar Bugiel, who sneaked in at the back post to prod home Christian Doidge's cross. Luke James then forced Adam Collin into a save with a diving header as Mark Cooper's charges, who are without a league win since August, looked to double their lead. Kevin Nolan shifted his formation round during a break in play and Notts almost drew level in first-half stoppage time, only for Jon Stead's scuffed effort from Jonathan Forte's low cross to be kept out by Sam Russell. Following the restart, Jorge Grant sidefooted wide from 12 yards out, while a penalty appeal was turned down in the 53rd minute when the ball hit Isaiah Osbourne's arm. As the game went on, County found clear-cut chances hard to come by in what was shaping up to be a frustrating afternoon, while Forest Green were hardly dominating in the final third either. Ameobi then wasted the hosts' best opportunity when he headed wide of the post from Grant's cross in what seemed to be the last chance of the game. However, there was to be a late twist as Dickinson sent the ball up the field, Ameobi knocked it on towards Matt Tootle, and the Slug crossed towards the centre where Milsom nodded beyond the reach of Russell.

  10. We've made a lot of signings this week. Six, to be precise. And now Notts have stepped up their recruitment drive, the question on everyone's lips is, how are we going to line up against Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday? There may be some difference in opinions in the formation that we use throughout the season, but I'm going to stick with 4-4-2 as we used that nearly all of the time last season when Nolan took over. Starting in goal. Adam Collin seems like the obvious choice and whilst most of our fans don't like him much, it's hard to see Fitzsimons or Pindroch replacing him just yet. Matt Tootle has the right-back spot sewn up sweetly. If he avoids the injury problems he had last season he could play every league game. I don't expect Jordon Richards or Nicky Hunt to start much at all this season. The left-back spot is easy. Dan Jones will easily displace Carl Dickinson. The ex-Stoke man was very error-prone last season, especially when he consistently allowed opposition players into the box unchallenged. It was obvious we needed a new left-back and he needed to have pace, something Jones has and Dickinson doesn't. Centre-back has plagued us for a few seasons now. The last two especially where we conceded 83 in 15-16 and 76 in 16-17. For me Shaun Brisley has to start. He played in the Peterborough team that reached the League One playoffs a few years ago and we're crying out for stability at centre-half. Richard Duffy has been a lot better since Kevin Nolan came in. For me he beats Hollis to that first team spot alongside Brisley. Duffy, for me, was better under Nolan in the second the half of last season than Hollis was and is just a better player in my opinion. I would like to see Pierce Bird play a few games this season. He seems like a good prospect and someone who I think definitely has potential. Onto the wingers and for me it has to be Jorge Grant and Lewis Alessandra. Grant showed last season he is a quality player, especially for this level and has an abundance of creativity. He could very easily hit 10-15 goals for the 2017-18 season. Alessandra has much needed pace which Notts have been begging for, for a few seasons now. I think Nolan can get the best out of the former Hartlepool man. This pushes Terry Hawkridge to the bench but I still see him playing a key role in creating chances for the Magpies. There is also the option of playing these three together behind a lone striker. I don't see Elliot Hodge featuring regularly unless key players pick up injuries. Sam Osborne has great potential but isn't ready yet and a loan spell out to gain first team football is what he needs. Moving into the centre of the park, there are several options to choose from. Rob Milsom, Elliott Hewitt, Liam Walker, Curtis Thompson and Ryan Yates. It's obvious we will miss Michael O'Connor. As captain he led by example and played a massive part in Notts climbing the table. He formed a great partnership with Milsom and in my opinion, Milsom should keep his place in the starting eleven. He is good at pressing teams and is a neat and tidy passer and very calm in possession of the ball. In my opinion, Liam Walker should start alongside him. Walker is more of an attackive minded midfielder and his long shots and set pieces will be a danger to opposition teams. Elliott Hewitt is getting better by the day. He looks at home in the centre of midfield and moving him there from his right back slot could prove a solid decision. Ryan Yates is more of a box to box midfielder and when played, could be very useful in linking defence to attack. I don't see Curtis Thompson playing many games this season and his persistent injury problems haven't helped him at all. Alex Howes is a another player who I see getting loaned out to gain more first team experience. I don't expect a permanent central midfield pairing. I think Milsom, Hewitt, Walker and Yates will all have their turn in the starting XI. Finally, we move into the final third. Jon Stead and Shola Ameobi signed new contracts in the summer and unless we sign a striker before opening day then it will be them two starting up front. As a strike partnership, they have shown they can be effective but not spectacular. Ameobi is a very good player for holding the ball up and this can help bring other players into the game such as Grant and Alessandra as well as Stead. Despite being 6'3, Stead likes the ball more to his feet and Nolan is the first manager, since the ex-Huddersfield man joined Notts, to realise he isn't a target man. He has done very well to score 25 goals in the last two seasons but he is 34 and Ameobi is 35 and it's clear we need someone younger up front who can take us further up the table than my current prediction of 10th. For me we still need a striker if we're going to break into the play-off places. Jonathan Forte can be an asset but breaking into the first team next season will be difficult for him especially if we sign another striker. I prefer him as a striker to a winger but was utilised more as the latter last season but still managed 10 goals. Whilst he only scored 2 in 23 at Crewe, Callum Saunders looks like one for the future. I've heard that his movement is very good but he needs to work on his finishing. My starting XI for Coventry: Collin, Tootle, Duffy, Brisley, Jones, Grant, Milsom, Walker, Alessandra, Stead, Ameobi Squad GK - Adam Collin, Ross Fitzsimons, Branislav Pindroch, Joe Searson-Smithard RB - Matt Tootle, Jordon Richards, Nicky Hunt LB - Dan Jones, Carl Dickinson CB - Shaun Brisley, Richard Duffy, Haydn Hollis, Pierce Bird W - Jorge Grant (RM), Lewis Alessandra (LM,RM), Terry Hawkridge (RM,LM), Elliot Hodge (RM), Sam Osborne (RM) CM - Rob Milsom, Elliott Hewitt, Liam Walker, Curtis Thompson, Ryan Yates, Michael O'Connor (INJ), Alex Howes ST - Jon Stead, Shola Ameobi, Jonathan Forte, Callum Saunders Share your thoughts about this feature article 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 midfielder Rob Milsom admits he's "gutted" that his on-pitch partnership with Michael O'Connor has had to be put on ice but believes Elliot Hewitt will continue to be a great replacement in the centre of the park. O'Connor suffered serious cruciate ligament damage in April and is expected to be out until next year as he prepares for knee surgery. Hewitt has however done well in his place and, after committing to a new deal at Meadow Lane, is expected to continue partnering Milsom in midfield. "I am really gutted for Mickey because we had built up a really good partnership just like we had done at Rotherham when we won promotion," Milsom told the Nottingham Post. "He was producing some absolutely brilliant performances and he was exceptional against Crewe when he really showed what a good player he is. "I was gutted for him when I found out about his injury because he's a great lad and obviously I've known him for a fair while as we've been at Rotherham and Notts together. "I know he would have been relishing to start the season given how well we finished it and it's not nice when you know one of your teammates is now going to miss it. "Obviously I don't know what's going to happen there in midfield, but Ells came in and did a good job after Mickey's injury. "He produced some really strong performances in the last few weeks of the season and he's more than capable of playing in the middle. "He gets up and down the pitch and really puts a shift in and he scored a terrific goal against Luton too."

  12. Rob Milsom has admitted that he wants to establish himself as a goalscoring midfielder at Notts County, and believes that Kevin Nolan is just the guy to coach him into it. The 30-year-old has been at Meadow Lane for two seasons and, following a disappointing first campaign, really came into his own in 2016-17 and was rewarded with the club's player of the season awards. Milsom was utilised in a variety of positions at the club but, now that he is deployed in central midfield, he wants to build on his existing work - and given he hasn't yet scored in 59 Magpies appearances, that will be his next challenge. "You only have to look at the gaffer's record to see he had perfected the art of getting in the box late and scoring goals," Milsom told the Nottingham Post. "He made a great career out of it and that's something I would like to my own game now. "Towards the back end of last season, I did some work on it with Richard Thomas (assistant manager) but it was quite late on. "But I think looking forwards that's something we will do more and more of so I can chip and contribute with goals just so it can take some of the pressure off the lads up top. "I can get up and down the pitch, but getting in the box and scoring goals is something that I've always wanted to do. "I found myself in some excellent positions last season and it's about making sure I take advantage of that, and making sure the runs are made at the right time. "You don't want to keep getting into the box and leaving big holes behind you so you've got to make sure you do it at the ideal moment. "I've spoken to the gaffer about it and there's no better person to learn off really when you consider the goals he scored." As well as his own personal development, Milsom is targeting the holy grail for any club in League Two - promotion. "I've experienced promotion before with Rotherham and once you do it changes your outlook as a player because you just want more of it," he continued. "When you finish your career you want to be able to look back and feel that you achieved either a title or a promotion. "We finished the season really well and I don't think there is anything to fear at all next season given the way we played. "Notts are one of the biggest clubs in the league and I would love it if we are up there chasing the top three or a place in the play-offs."

  13. Notts County have confirmed that player of the season Rob Milsom has signed a new contract at Meadow Lane. The 30-year-old midfielder has made 59 appearances for the Magpies since joining from Rotherham United in 2015. "The way the second half of the season went with the new chairman (Alan Hardy) and manager (Kevin Nolan) was really good. It's exciting times," Milsom is quoted by the Nottingham Post as saying. "My aim at the start of last season was to stay fit and play as many games as possible. My performances improved throughout the campaign so I want to carry that form into next year. "Goalscoring is something I want to work on. Thommo (Richard Thomas, assistant manager) had been working with me on it before the end of the season and we will carry that on in pre-season. "I like to get up and down the pitch so if I can add goals to my game it will only help the team." The length of his new contract has not been disclosed but Hardy added: "We're delighted to have him on board for the new season."

  14. So Rob Milsom has been voted the Notts County player of the season as well as the players' player of the season for 2016-17. But we want to throw it out to you guys - who was your personal Notts standout player of the season? Do you agree with the choice of Milsom, or are there any other players who you would award the accolade to? Let PON know!
  15. Rob Milsom has expressed his delight with putting a frustrating first season for Notts County behind him. The 30-year-old has impressed in midfield in 2016-17 and was rewarded with the Fans' Player of the Year and the Players' Player of the Year awards. Milsom is happy with having secured the accolades, but more so because of redemption after an indifferent, injury-disrupted maiden season at Meadow Lane. "I've come a long way because I struggled in the first season," the 2015 signing from Rotherham United told the Nottingham Post. "That was down to the injury which happened just a month or two after I signed. It never really went away and I was playing through a knock half the time. "But I wanted to come back determined to make an impression this season and show people what I can do. "I know it wasn't good enough in the first season so I was really champing at the bit. It was really frustrating, but it's all behind me now. Everything is fine and I just want to keep kicking on."

  16. Kevin Nolan has praised Rob Milsom after the midfielder picked up two Notts County awards last week, admitting that he would like to keep him at Meadow Lane next season. The 30-year-old collected the Players' Player of the Year and the Fans' Player of the Year awards before Saturday's 1-0 win over Blackpool as a reward for his impressive and consistent form. Milsom is one of many players out of contract at the club in the summer, but his manager is hoping to keep hold of him for the 2017-18 campaign. "Rob has been brilliant since I came in," Nolan told the Nottingham Post. "He is an honest and hardworking lad. That's why he has all of those accolades. "I am hoping he can kick on further now after having a torrid few years before that. "He should go away feeling very proud of himself, and he should have a good rest before he comes back ready and raring to go in July. "He hasn't played this many games in a long time, but we will manage it and see where we go with the contract talks. I would love to keep him if we can get the contract right."

  17. Rob Milsom has expressed his desire to "put down roots" at Notts County after enjoying an impressive and award-winning season at Meadow Lane. The 30-year-old midfielder was voted the club's 2016-17 player of the year as well as the players' player of the year for his consistency in the middle of the park. His contract is up at the end of the season but manager Kevin Nolan has publicly declared that he wants to keep Milsom at the club. Now the former Rotherham United man says the feeling is mutual, telling the Nottingham Post: "I have really enjoyed it this season and hopefully I can put down roots here. "I've really enjoyed playing under the gaffer and I think the club is going places. "The fans have turned out and got behind us and it's been really enjoyable to play in front of them. "I'd like to be part of a club that is going forward next season. I expect the talks to be straight forward and hopefully we can come to an agreement."

  18. The Football Lab has named Rob Milsom as one of its League Two midfielders of the season. From the article http://www.thefootballab.co.uk/2017/midfielder-of-the-season-notts-countys-rob-milsom/ "Michael O’Connor has been transformed since the appointment of Kevin Nolan, a line that could be attributed to many other players, yet Milsom has been consistent throughout the season. Every game he has worked tirelessly for the cause, whereas the commitment of his teammates under John Sheridan’s reign had been questioned." Do you agree with the writer? Share your thoughts.
