To celebrate the start of Prostate Cancer UK’s Football League charity partnership, Prostate Cancer UK recently got in touch with me asking me to compile the top five Notts County number nines…and one worst, in recognition of the fact that prostate cancer will affect one in nine men.
My selections went live this morning on their new Football League website this morning and can be viewed here.
Towards the end of May I gave the blog a bit of a break whilst things went a bit quiet.
Whilst many were expecting (or hoping) for news about players like Lloyd Sam and Daniel Bogdanovic, and for hints about a friendly with Juventus – the silence was in fact deafening.
If you watched Friday night’s League One Play-Off Semi without a slight hint of jealousy then I applaud you.
But for me, watching Stevenage and Sheffield United, the feeling that overcame me the most was quite simple – it should have been us.
It goes without saying just how much better the 2011/12 season was compared to last year.
But it can never hurt to appreciate just how much better!
In a first for The Notts Blog, i’ve put together a video for Notts County’s best goal of the past season .
Whilst we continue to dwell on dropped points and missed chances this season, it’ll be worth a watch if only just to cheer ourselves up!
We’re now officially half way through Notts County’s League One schedule for 2011/12 and find the side in tenth – a decent distance away from the same time last season!
Whilst form of late (including defeat today) has been a major concern, there have been many positives to come from the campaign – here’s the pick of the statistics that back up that statement.
With the 2010/11 season out of the way and a new campaign fast approaching, i spent a little time going through the statistics of last season to pick apart anything that i found interesting.
Be warned, it’s not the prettiest assessment of last season.
It has often been said that football is a game played by twenty two players and watched by thousands of unqualified referees. Further, that decisions change matches.
But what cannot be disputed is that when people look back to Notts County’s campaign in 2010/2011, they’ll inevitably look back with great disdain and a huge sense of disappointment at a season that promised so much, but delivered so little for its supporters.
So for whatever reason, the guys at The Two Unfortunates’ blog thought i’d be the right person to put together a season preview about Notts for their site.
But me being me, things got too in-depth, so changes had to be made. So, here’s the “Director’s Cut” of it anyway…
