    NCM dispair

    Logged on today for the first time in a while to catch up on NCM. Interested though I am in the Brexit debate, its a bit disheartening that an OT thread is currently at 10 pages and 178 responses, whilst there's virtually no comment on football

    I know its tough times to be a Notts fan, but its a bit demoralising.

    and Brisley... How did Nolan overlook the fact that 30 year old plus defenders are a year older and a year slower...... Best defence in the league, so we'll concentrate on attack....

    In short the defence can leave, but I'd like to remain. Actually with a season ticket, there's not much option. Though I'll be first in the queue to buy one for next season as usual.

    A nasty circle imo mate, the prolific number of OT political threads on here since the "Brexit" vote has driven so many football/Notts posters away that the forum now relies on them to survive. Maybe when/if things pick up on the pitch the football content will improve in line but as it stands this is not my idea of a "Notts Forum" & I am rapidly aligning myself with the posters who waste less of their time on here!!

    " A nasty circle" . Just people using a platform to air their views. Long live OT posts.

    Do these posters not go to the pub either because there might be conversations going on that they’re not interested in?

    On the front page there are 3 OT's (1 of them about a football film) and 17 about football, virtually all about Notts.

    Not disheartening at all.

    Exactly there's quite alot about Notts plus now Ardleys news has died down then a whupping away to Mansfield ain't something to get excited about.

    A poor choice of words I agree navy,this forum has always had & I hope will continue to have OT posts, however the last couple of years have seen many good,regular football posters move away from the site as they have become much more frequent & repetitive imo. We have also had an influx of posters,many from across the river, yourself & Tarks for example to bolster the already political/argumentative posters on here, at the end of the day there are thousands of political forums to choose from but only a few where you can chat to fellow Notts fans. Long live Notts posts.

    Wouldn't you expect them to seek out a pub where the regulars & conversation suited them better??

    They have O/T along side them. No one forces you to read them.
    As stated, only a minute amount of posts were off topic.
    It's more a case of Notts performing like a sack of ****, that posters are in decline.
    But decline is now throughout MAD. I suggest you scroll through every team and make a list of who uses what and the date of the last post.
    It may surprise you.

    I was being a bit tongue in cheek . I'm not against OT threads, just would be nice to have more to talk about with football. It was the level of interest/number of posts on the Brexit thread v number of posts on the other threads that caught my eye.

    Living away from Nottingham, I find NCM a very useful way of keeping in touch with news, views and gossip, plus many and varied opinions on my lifelong team Notts County.

    I do hope this board goes from strength to strength and trust all interested parties will continue to contribute.

    You need Syd to get writers cramp to get rid of most of the O/T threads

    Yeah, I can be argumentative. I'm often seen tramping the streets of Mapperley arguing with a black Labrador.

    I also live many miles from Nottingham and totally agree with this. NCM is now my main source for finding out what’s happening at Notts - though of course I’ve learned to take a lot of it with a pinch of salt!

    I always think when people say the site has gone downhill and there are no decent threads, just start one yourself. Obviously it will be better than the dross most of us write and commenters will come back in their droves. No, but seriously, who cares, just vent your spleen, give an opinion about Notts or whatever, it's a free country.

    Oh, and it's not anyone on here's fault the club are so piss poor now. It's no coincidence we get more posts when something like Munto happens and the football is worth watching. Just bear (bare?) with it, we won't be crap forever.
