Returning To Arnold

Notts this morning confirmed a friendly away to Arnold Town for the second consecutive year – meaning a return to the scene of the near-season ending injury suffered by Jimmy Spencer just 12 months ago. Predictably, understandably, concerns have been raised by Notts supporters about the return. But what happened to Spencer was a one…

Summer Update

First update in a while – not that I imagine many will be too bothered about not having much to read about Notts in the aftermath of another relegation. Things are however ticking over nicely at this end and so I figured I would post a quick update to the website so people are fully…

Taking Stock

It’s been a strange few days, not the proudest for the first “City Of Football” it has to be said. Both the city’s clubs have lost their weekend fixtures which generally sets a grim mood by itself – yet the fall out from each defeat has been somewhat spectacular for very different reasons! Oh and…

The League 3 Debate

Say No To League 3. It’s been a few weeks since Greg Dyke’s ludicrous proposals for B teams to be introduced into the Football League and I’m still yet to find a coherent argument as to why anyone wouldn’t be against them. As I see it, my football club must not be allowed to be…

Summer Maintenance Begins

No, certainly not the most riveting update we’ll post this Summer. But today – after the last game in two months was played on it on yesterday – the Meadow Lane surface was dug up so it can be re-seeded over the next two months. The next game to be played on it will be…

Video: 2013/14 Goal Of The Season

[youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ArxqJWLSfp0′] This isn’t particularly new – but I thought I’d post it on the blog in the interests of keeping everything together and hopefully so those who haven’t seen it have something to watch over the weekend. It is of course the Goal Of The Season video covering the last nine months – from…

Dean Yates At It Again

Dean Yates’ screams as Alan Judge stroked the ball into the back of the Wycombe net a few years back have gone down in folklore amongst some Notts fans. You can hear that here. Above however, is his latest effort as Callum McGregor scored the goal which sealed Notts’ 2-0 win at home to Swindon…

Young Notts Side Excel In Finland

This afternoon, via the glory of SportTV.FI’s online stream, Notts fans back home were able to enjoy Notts’ latest pre-season friendly – against Tervarit. A 4-1 win with goals from Romello Nangle, Dean Parret, Matthew Barnes-Homer and Curtis Thompson was lit up particularly by the two goals below: [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xOJ9nL5Oa9w’] [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3sltLvj5bmU’]

No Masking The Real Problems

What follows is mostly an exercise in polishing the excrement that has become our season. Since getting home from Bournemouth last night I’ve read some quite staggering perspectives on defeat on the south coast and thought I’d bust out a blog with my thoughts.

A Sad, But Not Unexpected End

One year on after defeat Hartlepool cost Martin Allen his job, Keith Curle suffers a similar fate. Yesterday’s embarrassing defeat up north proved to be the last straw for Notts’ top brass in a decision which can’t really have surprised too many people who have seen County play in the last few months. And let’s…

An Open Letter To Portsmouth FC

On Friday night, with my regular driver Sean out of commission for the weekend I made the decision to travel to Portsmouth for our game the next day. Having missed the FA Cup tie earlier in the season I didn’t want to miss a second opportunity to visit Fratton Park. So off I went to…

The Joys Of Transfer Deadline Day

I’ll start the piece by being perfectly blunt with you all – transfer deadline days have turned the average football fan into a complete and utter idiot. Admittedly that is likely too soft a word, but I’m trying to keep things civil here. The chances are that you might’ve seen your club criticised quite heavily…
