    right, just to pass the Time until Saturday how many league away clubs have you Done?

    Theres an unofficial group of Hardened Notts County fans, who have traveled up and down the country over the years, supporting your team.
    If your a Everton fan, same division 1955 or Arsenal 1919, you dont stand a chance of achieving our figure.

    now its impossible to see your team on every ground, as so many clubs have moved over the decades.

    so its Having seen your team Play a Competitive Match on a Football League Opponents ground,
    who at the time were in the four divisions now called Premier, Champions and 1 and 2.
    Friendlys and practice games excluded.

    Annoying Im not a member of the exclusive 92 club, that's all the existing league clubs at this moment.

    Realistically only the Malcs and Ackos, oh and my mate Neil who travels from Saltburn, have achieved that.

    my totals now 89, annoying as we looked doomed, i will not be able to see my team on the three i'm missing.
    ie Burton Albion, Ipswich and Blackburn.
    in total ive ticked off 114 due to clubs like Boston etc once being league but now lost in the depths of the pyramid.

    So sound off, Stand up and Be counted, how many have you done if only to shame the players who did not show the same commitment this season.

    A rather paltry 20, but in my defence I've been to several grounds several times.

    I have seen Notts play a competitive match at 44 grounds of current league clubs, plus 4 ex league clubs currently in the Conference National League and 4 currently in the Conference North. Sadly I fear that I shall probably be clocking up National League grounds next season, but, hey, a miracle might happen

    Blackburn was one of my very first under my own steam, on a special train sat next to an absolute nutter who wore a white doctor's coat and carried a union Jack. He came back without it. We needed a win under Fenton as we still had realistic top flight promotion prospects but Alan Birchenall committed a needless handball for a penalty at 1-1, and we lost 2-1. I've been since, like when Hunt scored in a 4-3 win. I was also one of the lucky Pies who witnessed Mair's goal at Ipswich. Not done Burton and about 10/15 short of you.

    What I have done is some impressive multiples, like Luton, Fulham and Charlton many times over. Luton was awful always, but I like the Valley.

    I've bizarrely been to Wycombe and Bristol Rovers multiple times.

    Can we get a league table drawn up for this? And is it just Notts games or any you've been to?

    Iíve been to see Notts play away to 75 of the current 92 League Clubs plus 11 who are currently in the National League (or NLN or NLS). In quite a lot of cases, itís their old ground that I went to, not the present one, but in some cases Iíve been to both. And for Bristol Rovers, itís three - Eastville, Twerton Park and the Memorial Ground.

    I've been to about 60 of the current 92, plus between 15 and 20 that are now in non-league.

    Including Meadow Lane, I've seen Notts play Rotherham at four different grounds!

    I've just gone through the list - notched up 43 of the current grounds plus the old Bolton, Spurs & Brighton stadia, so 46 of the 92 Clubs.

    If you chuck in Chesterfield, Boston, & Hereford when they were FL clubs then I just, technically, scrape 50.(may be more, if I bother to think more deeply about it - went to Southport & Barrow but not to see Notts)

    I've been to Chesterfield, Sheff Utd, Mansfailed & Lincoln a lot more than any others but, oddly enough Everton, Villa & Bournemouth also feature quite heavily too. Also seen Rotherham at 3 of their grounds plus ML, of course.

    I’ve seen Notts at 75 of the 92, but most of those were in the late 80s and early 90s so quite a few of the games were at clubs’ old grounds (Roker Park, Ayresome Park, Fellows Park, Gay Meadow, Highbury (Arsenal), White Hart Lane, Ninian Park, Victoria Ground, Upton Park, The Dell, Maine Road, Millmoor, Springfield Park, Baseball Ground, Filbert Street). Then there are those where there have been a few grounds - the Den/New Den; Elm Park/Madjeski Stadium; Bristol Rovers at Twerton Park and the rugby ground; Brighton at the Goldstone Ground, Withdean and Priestfield Stadium. And who can ever forget the joys of Dorchester to see Notts blow a 2-goal lead against Bournemouth.

    Also begs the question of which grounds we have yet to play at: Spurs, Arsenal, Cardiff and Brighton. Have we played at Pride Park or the King Power?

    1st away game Huddersfield 1-2 Notts FA Cup 1984 aged 10
    1984-1988 the away games mi dad took me to (usually the ones within around 80 miles from Nottm)
    1988- 1993 hardly missed an away match, The Warnock era.
    2009- 2011 took mi son to a good few aways, His favorite memory is the atmosphere in the pub before the 5-1 defeat at fulham.

    Around 50 for me, can't be exact as my dad dragged me all over the country as a child and sadly he's not around to confirm exact numbers. That's current League clubs only, and only grounds I've seen Notts at.

    Counted a few years back, and was around the 70 mark, but thatís including teams who have been relegated and those who have moved grounds, so a fair bit lower than that now. And of course Wembley, and íNewí Wembley if we can count the Ladies? My most traveled to is probably Brentford. Donít know what it is but I adore that ground, and drinking in the Griffin. Sadly, donít think Iíll ever see it again as their new ground is being built.

    Competitive games involving Notts at 65 of the current 92 although quite a few at old grounds in the 80s and 90s.
    Plus a few now non-league, the old Wembley five times and a friendly away to Juventus.
    First away game - a routine 2-0 win (Hooks, Christie) against a team that had recently won back to back European Cups.
    Not a Notts game but one I look back on with pride is an England U21 vs Germany U21 match with two Notts players in the starting line up, one of whom scored. Seems a long time ago now.

    I've seen Notts play on around 50 grounds but I agree watching Notts beat Leeds, this was definitely the best night.
    Best ground I've seen them is Old Trafford and worst view I've had was in the corner of the shallow terracing at Crewe circa 25 years ago.
    I'm looking forward to reacquainting myself with The Shay and with luck a trip to Edgeley Park where I've never been before.
