Who Are Ya? - Notts County
How Long Have You Supported Notts County?
I'm only 28 but attended matches in a buggy, so 28 years. Some days I still spit my dummy out!
Last Season's League Finish?
We finished 16th last season, which was poor but considering we were near the bottom for such a long time.
What Do You Think Of Your Manager?
Tactical genius. He's ours, stay away!
Hopes/Expectations This Season?
One(s) To Watch?
Jorge Grant, Jon Stead and Shaun Brisley.
Top Seven Predictions?
Luton Town, Notts County, Lincoln City, Swindon Town, Wycombe Wanderers, Colchester United and Mansfield Town.
Bottom Two Predictions?
Chesterfield and Barnet.
Thoughts on Lincoln City?
Lincoln are a very well organised club with a manager who cares and believes in each and everyone one of their players. A club who got the lower league clubs noticed by their good FA Cup run.
A tough game. My head says 1-1, my heart (if I had one) says 2-1 to Notts.
Random Fact About Your Club?
Most relegations as a football team.
Also had Sven-Göran Eriksson in charge.
What are your proudest and most embarrassing moments as a Notts County Supporter?
Celebrating a goal I jumped over a row of seats and split my tracksuit bottoms away at Crewe. The goal scorer Shaun Harrad bought me a new pair of trousers when I told him it happened!
Proudest moment was helping the Supporters Club with bucket collections to help save the club, walking to Mansfield Town 3 years ago.
Do you have a Supporters Trust and what role do they play at the Club?
No, we don't have a Supporters Trust at the club, but a few years ago we did.
Which was your favourite match involving Notts County?
Oldham away last game of the season staying up that kept us in the League (Sheehan penalty) or Juventus away (wow).
Which was your least favourite match involving Notts County?
Every game we lose.
Hawkridge sounds as though he's having a good season?
I personally like him and think he's shown a lot desire and fight, but other people don't see what I see.
Do you think you make the most of having Forest close by in terms of using them for loan players?
I quite liked the principle until today when they called back Ryan Yates, then loaned him out to Scunthorpe, but that's football and we move on.
