In my only other match report for Gerrit Forward this season, I noted after the early-season 2-0 win over Chesterfield that the result is always more important than the performance. Since then, Kevin Nolan’s team have continued in the same vein – turning ‘winning ugly’ into something of an art form, with a string ofContinue reading “Battling Notts overcome Barnet to go top”
Another game, another 3 points. It’s becoming a lovely habit isn’t it? Clearly positions don’t mean much at this stage but we’re 2nd in the league and probably still not playing anywhere near our full potential. Dare I suggest that we’ll still be there in May? Swindon, on the back of a fantastic result atContinue reading “Notts aren’t second on luck”
On Friday night, “Bloody hell, Notts” was trending again on Twitter as Kevin Nolan’s side threw away what seemed like a comfortable two-goal advantage. We did it last week; we’ve done it this week, and it’s safe to say we’ll probably do it a few more times this season. Six days prior, away at WycombeContinue reading “Same old brand new Notts”
Read a more in-depth overview of the 3-0 opening day disappointment here. Below is a quick look at how each player got on, including five debutants… Adam Collin – 7 – actually far more commanding than last season. Claimed lots of crosses and could do little with Jones’ exquisite finishing. Matt Tootle – 7 –Continue reading “Bitesize match ratings – Coventry City 3-0 Notts County”
After the miraculous 2017 turnaround of Notts County Football Club, Monday saw the biggest test of how far Kevin Nolan’s men have come since the start of his managerial reign.
It felt more like the start of the season than approaching the end as Notts ventured south to take on playoff-chasing Wycombe Wanderers.
Another game, another big attendance, another home win. Almost a year to the day, Jamie Fullarton’s tumultuous 70 day reign – which zapped supporter morale at the club to depths never seen before – came to an end to the mutual relief of all parties. That day it was angry protests in the car park; today itContinue reading “Notts County match ratings v Barnet”
It’s hard to put into words just how different the mood is at Meadow Lane compared to a few months ago. It was less than five months ago when I was one of just 1,000 or so demoralised home fans who’d stayed until the end after we were battered by rock bottom Newport. The reaction toContinue reading “Notts County match ratings vs Hartlepool United”
Notts County continued the Meadow Lane unbeaten run under Kevin Nolan with a 0-0 draw against Yeovil Town. The visitors came for a point and stuck 10 men behind the ball for pretty much 90 minutes, leading to an unspectacular encounter. It was nice to head into the match with expectations of a win andContinue reading “Notts County match ratings v Yeovil Town”
