Leave out the ‘look how far we’ve come’ spiel

I’m so sick of Notts being on the tele. Look what happens… We deserved absolutely nothing on Sunday, and quite honestly it’s hard to know what to say after a performance like that. I can’t remember the last time I felt so deflated after a game – it was that poor. Losing to a bottom-twoContinue reading “Leave out the ‘look how far we’ve come’ spiel”

Strikingly Similar Story

The unfortunate injury to Mason Bennett, prematurely ending a promising loan spell from Derby, has plunged Notts into the familiar position of scrabbling around for suitable strikers. With the ageing Stead and Ameobi struggling to meet the demands of two-game weeks the loan of Bennett, a player combining the intoxicating mix of both strength andContinue reading “Strikingly Similar Story”

Dan stops us getting desperate about Morecambe

Firstly, can we just enjoy the fact that we have beaten Morecambe? Forget going into the top three for a minute, forget the unbeaten home record and the back-to-back clean sheets. All lovely things to open the Sunday papers for, of course, but I want to reflect a little more on bringing to an endContinue reading “Dan stops us getting desperate about Morecambe”

Same old brand new Notts

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.

Wow… That was shocking

Wow. That has been the buzzword of the season, right? Wow… wow that was shocking. Don’t get me wrong, Coventry could turn out to be the business and that Jones fella on the wing may be the real deal. But regardless, that’s a bad start to the season. How many teams have gone on toContinue reading “Wow… That was shocking”

Notts County Retained List: Stay or go

When we slumped to our record-breaking tenth consecutive defeat in the 4-1 hammering at Morecambe early this year, few would’ve seen seen a scenario where fans would’ve been in favour of keeping any of the players involved in that shambolic run of losses. Top-scorer Jon Stead’s mooted move to the US came about when former manager JohnContinue reading “Notts County Retained List: Stay or go”

Notts County match ratings v Barnet

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”
