    Just arrived in deepest Norfolk after shooting straight off after the game which I have to say was actually a good game to watch. Wrexham are one of the better teams in this league and we kept them t9 just one shot on target which unfortunately they scored with. Twenty attempts by Notts means it looks like we might have something to be optimistic about especially with the next couple of fixtures which are probably falling at just the right time for us.

    Denis playing like he’s got a point prove. Booty looks like a great signing. I thought Turner had a very good game today and I honestly believe Rose had a cracker because he had confidence in Doyle being back in the team and knowing he could loosen up a bit safe in the knowledge his skipper will be there to mop things up if he needed him. Regarding Doyle, I was glad to see the back of him for a few games but today he had a very good game, the odd misplaced pass but never stopped running, tackling and looking for the quick option which Denis, Thomas and to some extent Enzio offered today.

    Their goal was quite fortunate in that Booty was quite literally blowing out his ar5e before he fell on it allowing their player the space for the shot. Also, not sure about Rawlinson at RB but we have seen worse there.

    All in all much improved, looked like a proper team and once the fitness levels are right and the players get to know each other a little better You would like to think based on that performance we have much to look forward to.

    Yeah, promising signs for the future. I can’t get quite as optimistic as some others, we went to sleep for the last 25 minutes of the first half, and the finishing was obviously crap, but we showed much more attacking potential than of late.

    I thought we were miles better than Wrexham in pretty much every department(except for scoring goals). If they’re supposed to be one of the top teams, it means top 7 is a minimum for us this season. I imagine the owners and the budget would suggest that as well.

    I would have taken the point before kickoff.

    I tried posting yesterday but looks like things are maybe finally coming together and we are starting to look like a team, that's all that we all want irrespective of manager so keep going Neal, it might be the start of something good for once at notts.

    On holiday in Dorset at the moment so I missed the game. Managed to listen online though. With comments on here and twitter etc, things really seem to be coming together. Its great to be feeling enthusiastic again. Looking forward to Ebbsfleet on saturday. Coyp. 😁

    Sounds like a big improvement. Like other posters, I would certainly have taken a point before the game, but it seems we were unlucky to not get all thee. If Wrexham are one of the favourites, that's a promising sign.

    I know we had a messed up summer, but given the signings we've made, and seeing a taster of the quality of this league, I'd say we should really be aiming for a top-half finish, or even the playoffs if we can hit some form. Why not? I know a few weeks ago I would have taken 5th bottom, but we do appear to have some decent players for this level.

    It's probably still too early to say. We'll know more by the end of the month.

    It was a good performance yesterday, we actually took the game to them and looked like the home team for once. Rose was back to his best and nobody had a poor game. We created enough good chances to have won the game, now we have to take this improvement to Ebbsfleet and Chorley and turn it into points.

    Really enjoyed the match, cracking game. We were well worth the point, and should really have had all three. Much more solid in all departments. Still a work in progress, so I think we will continue to improve.

    How Wrexham fans saw it. They all seem to acknowledge they got away with one yesterday.

    It was a really good game yesterday, and I echo what others have said with regards to the performance. Credit goes to Neal Ardley because to make changes to a winning team and had we lost we know what would have happened.

    There were some really good performances and overall for the first twenty minutes of the first half I felt we bossed and dominated the game.

    Mitch Rose was truly excellent in midfield and was worthy of the man of the match. I'd also say Ben Turner was a close second. He got his head on everything. I thought Booty had a good game as well. That cross into the box for Dennis to head in was spot on. Credit to Dennis as well because his headed goal was top quality. I hope he can recreate the form he had in this league previously and go on and show us why he was brought to the club originally.

    What was encouraging was the performance. I liked how we pressed and passed the ball. A few games ago people were questioning what Neal Ardley's style was and I think we are starting to see that it's a high pressing style when out of possession, and in possession a patient passing style. Throw in the physically and battling qualities that the players we now have with effort and endeavor and there you have it.

    Had we won then it would have been the complete performance, but this is still a work in progress side. I liked the fact that we created far more in this game than we had probably done at home for a very long time. Likewise the number of corners was significantly higher than what we've become accustomed to.

    Both Tyson and Thomas had fantastic opportunity's to seal the win, and on another day they may have scored with their chances.

    We had no problems competing with Wrexham and if they are one of the better sides in this league then we should be able to compete which to say where we were only three weeks ago is massive progress.

    It's hard to believe that 21 days ago it was the first day at the office for the Reedz brothers and we had not signed a player.

    Saturday I'm hoping was the first shoots growing from the ashes and this team can begin to get stronger, and stronger and fitter such that come the end of the month we are in a good place to go on and make this a season one in which we can come home after a game with pride and say they gave their all win, lose or draw.

    As others have said, it's nice to see us "taking it to the oppo" for a change instead of sitting back....thought Enzio also looked "up for it"......v Ebbsfleet next Saturday (minus 9 goals after 5 matches and zero points) should be a banker if we repeat the amount of effort that I've just witnessed.

    The Mail has published an article on us here.....
    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/fo...-football.html

    It mentions that only Bradford City had a higher gate than us in the 4th and 5th tiers this weekend.

    Granted we've already seen two of the biggest away followings we'll get all year, but even if you discount away fans our crowds have been pretty good so far. Especially when you consider we've not even had a 3pm Saturday kick off yet.

    Nothing compared to the spelling mistake they made for our left back.
