    I think the PFA help the players out so imagine it would all go to the staff. I don't think this is entirely fair, though - pin it on the senior players if you want but don't forget that we've also got lads like Bird, Crawford, Howes, Osborne etc. who will be earning very little as it is and definitely can't be blamed for last season.

    It's a terrible idea anyway, mind. Can't believe anyone sanctioned it.

    I've paid to join and made a further donation to the Official Supporters Association as they seem to already be helping out the unpaid non-playing staff as much as they can with their limited resources.

    As for Hardy, I struggle to imagine how he signed off on this, or thought it was a good idea. It's a callous slap in the face to the club's employees whose unpaid wages he is directly responsible for in the first place. Everything he does now seems to be even more ridiculous and antagonising than the last. I could be generous and ask whether his mental state has been affected by the long running takeover saga, but even so, he is making things worse for himself with idiocy like this.

    How far he and Notts have fallen since that ill fated 2018 play off semi final...

    It doesn't seem entirely fair to deny Ilkeston their share of gate money.

    i would hope the staff behind the scenes that we rarely hear about are first to be paid.
    like your mum?

    I will be taking my family on Saturday, and money will be going into the collection outside the ground to ensure it will get to the unpaid staff. I will however be entering the ground through the notts turnstile in the faint hope that the money I part with there will also be used to pay the staff. Either way at least some money will be seen by our loyal staff.

    I think a fair few people have had a degree of sympathy with him....this appears to have evaporated with this nonsense. An absolute disgrace.

    Believe me I have no sympathy for the man. My only concern is for the hardworking people of this club, and your right it is an absolute disgrace how he is treating them and the sooner this sorry situation is finally resolved the better!

    I agree. He would be better off moving away from it and employing the services of someone PR based to do it for him and paying for it personally. The man seems to be very removed from reality. Actually quite odd.

    No, it doesn't. I'd be ashamed to use a Notts turnstile.

    .

    And who do we trust to make sure the cash goes to the Notts staff? Yes, the man who says HE can't pay them till next week because he has no money, but he'll take yours and make sure it goes where he thinks it ought to.

    This club gets to be more of an embarrassment every day. Hold your head high, Alan.

    Obviously not, we have this starting XI plus another eleven on the bench:

    Fitzsimons
    Kelly-Evans (T)
    Bird
    Streete (T)
    Oxlaide-Chamberlain
    Rose
    Doyle
    Reid (T)
    Boldewijn
    Tyson (T) Nathan not Mike!
    Dennis

    I'm just about to set off and see how it goes.

    Streete? Last time I saw that name it was Floyd Streete in the late 80s, playing for Wolves. Are we trialling his son?

    I just does did a Wikipedia search on Floyd Streete and it says his son Remie is indeed a professional footballer but left Port Vale in 2017 aged 24 and seemingly gave up the game. Maybe he's having another go at it.

    Notts should just about finish him off then.

    Sounds like his career reached a bit of a dead end then.
