    WOW - that's come as a bolt from the blue!!

    Our midfield now looks significantly weaker than last season.

    I really hope we have some decent replacements lined up i.e. not the usual NCFC bargain-bin journey men, that we have a habit of signing, as the season approaches...

    Excuse me while I put my toys back in the pram and begin taping together the two halves of my torn season ticket ...

    Thanks for all the effort Liam and good luck at Hartlepool, now KN I cant believe I'm saying this but a midfielder needed, do you guys think we have enough at the club already or a good experienced midfielder is needed?

    "A winger has been our priority and with Michael OíConnor having left the club to join Lincoln City, we would also like a central midfielder with experience.

    The manager believes that an older head, who has had a wonderful career, will help the younger players flourish - which is important given we have some exciting talent within the squad".

    What a welcome change this is from the plague of posts on NCM that read along the lines of: "Oh NO, not another centre-midfield signing" !!

    I bleddy hope we have got centre-midfield players lined up because as it stands we've got a threadbare midfield, with little or no cover.

    Hewitt who runs and tackles all day - maybe Kellett is a similar type of player? Husin, who has skill but is light-weight and doesn't tackle much and then the 2 'unknown' kids, Patching and Crawford. Yeah, maybe one of them will come good but in this league every side that figures in the promotion mix, has an experienced midfield general. Somebody who can control the game, run, tackle and pick a pass. You know somebody like a FIT Michael O'Connor...

    Good thinking. If we're going to give a chance to Patching, Crawford, Kellett, and let Husin & Hewitt get forward we don't need a replacement for Noble. We need a replacement for O'Connor.

    Noble was unbelievably bad at the end of last season. Mystery slump in form and confidence, he was one of the better players under Derry and Moniz

    His second spell at Notts never seemed to get going. Perhaps the long wait between being signed and being able to play had an adverse effect.

    Letís remember the positives - two outstanding goals at Huddersfield in the League Cup and a belter of a free kick which won a home game with Luton.

    ... and don't forget his man of the match performances away at FGR and at home against the Stags.

    Nah, he's past it now but it looks like that conversation over dinner with Frank Lampard came to something. Can you be a player and a manager for two different teams?

    I am sorry to see him go - I think we had yet to see the best from him. Good luck Liam and thanks for your efforts for Notts.

    Is our midfield weaker? Noble was pretty much terrible and O'Connor was a bit part player for us as was Milsom. We've signed Patching who should be talented and Crawford. Kellet should be more consistent on the left than Grant in all but goal scoring.
    I'm hoping that Hussin will physically mature with a pre season and be a good player for us.
    Noble, Milsom, O'Connor and probably Grant wouldn't have been cheap to employ so there is probably some cash spare to strengthen too.

    With the look of him he would have to lose about 2 stone first But Noble will be no loss imo.

    He wanted to move closer to home when he left FGR, so he did and now he's actually completing the journey after a long lunch stop at Notts. Safe journey Liam.
