Fucks sake, cannot believe Adam Stag is still a thing.

I'm oddly looking forward to this now after the disappointment of yesterday, League One has got boring. We should, theoretically, win a bit more at this level too.

Anyone else got a trendy foreign manager?

Yes if you consider Yarkshire to be a semi-independent state.

You can all look forward to every single one of our defeats being blamed on 'the devil'.

'It is the devil's will' *points to the sky*

'That stupid referee with sand in his eyes' is without question the quote of the year too.

Just realised we have to play against Martin Allen and Keith Curle too this year. Fuck sake. Honestly, I'm non-plussed about relegation. We're the sort of club, like Chesterfield, Shrewsbury, Rochdale, Bury, Wycombe, Vale, Scunthorpe etc... Where with football being what it is now, this is kind of our destiny. Our seasons will range between overachieving in League 1 to underachieving in League 2 with a few promotions and relegations mixed in. As long as we're a bit interesting and try and do things the right way; like promoting youth, having acceptable pricing etc...then I'm all-in. I just can't see that happening anytime soon, which is disappointing.

My only real ire is the amount of fucking travelling in this division. No chance of me summoning the energy to travel to 90% of these shitholes.

Still here pal. Apologies.

You should be easily good enough to go back up.

Is this trendy foreign manager actually any good?

Dunno. He won a game with Derry's team from hell, so that's impressive.

I miss the days when we used to whoop County 6-2.

6-1 for fucks sake.

The 3-1 was probably worse though.

haha! I remember you scored from a 'keeper error after Robbo had to go off injured, thought you got a 2nd as well. That 3-1 game was excellent, Ritchie's strike from outside the box is still available on youtube somewhere.

Does Lowestoft born & bred count as the polar opposite of a trendy foreign manager?

Yeovil and Crawley I can see being relegation threatened next season too, especially Crawley.

Pretty much that. I think Yeovil and Crawley will be at the wrong end of the table, Notts to be mid-table and Orient to challenge. Given how my predictions went this season though, it'll be the other way around.

This is a league in which Matt Rhead continues to convince people he's a professional footballer. I think we'll be ok.

Famous last words...

I think we're probably best placed to challenge from the four who've come down. We've got stable ownership (albeit they continue to convince no one that they really have a plan), will have a top seven budget and have a core of five or six players who are decent League One standard still under contract but unlikely to be sold and who didn't contribute that much in the season just gone for a variety of reasons. The only real unknown factor is Moniz and how our new policy of signing by committee is going to work.

Looking at the others, Orient have the money and a fine squad (although Cox, Vincelot, Baudry etc. will surely leave) but their owners make ours look like footballing geniuses, Yeovil probably need a huge rebuild after two relegations but should be solid under Sturrock and Crawley are probably refinding their level.

Yeovil will be fine in this league, no lower than mid-table. Sturrock will get the best out of them, Leitch-Smith might actually start to look good again too!

Think relegation will hit Crawley really hard though, they were signing players from the fifth and sixth tiers who weren't getting a game ON LOAN which shows just how much money they've lost last couple of years. Only a matter of time before they're back to where they belong.

Notts and Orient are two unpredictable clubs, they genuinely could win the title because the competition in League Two is so scarce, or they could do a Tranmere due to an unproven foreign manager and dodgy ownership and infighting respectively. I reckon the former will be Top 7 but the latter well, it'll be interesting to see how they get on.

Really can't see Yeovil being poor in this division with Sturrock at the helm. The issue for them will be his health, if he manages the whole season they will be fine, anywhere from a 1st to 10th place finish, the man just knows how to get results in this division.

Nowt wrong with Matt Rhead as a sub, he will just come and sit on one of your defenders.

He's one of our galactico players from last season that amassed a staggering 38 goals in 46 games, go us!

Alot of people are forgetting that alot of our better players are still under contract and would require a fee.

Vincelot is 30 in December and Baudry still has one more year and is 28, so they will both require fees!

Roy Carroll has signed a new deal, which is pretty important news for us. One of the best keepers in L1 last season, should wind a few up down here.

In an ideal world they would but you're now in League 2 with a monster fucking wage bill. More than likely, the plan will be to get some of these players off the books rather than get a fee, especially if they want to leave as well, in a lot of situations you won't be the ones holding the cards.

Leitch-Smith won't be doing anything for us next season. He's one of 4 players who have a year left on their contracts but have been given offers to leave. They've all been told if they stay they will be on the payroll but won't be made available for selection during the season and won't be given squad numbers.

Here's our best team from the list of players currently signed on a contract and considered for selection next year:

Weale
Sokolik Smith
Gillett

Not even 5-a-side.

Went to 3 of your games and saved what was a pretty shoddy defence from anihilation in each game, great shot stopper

Its going to be an interesting summer yet again at Notts.
Moniz has surprisingly given contracts to Smith and Jones who were at best struggling in League 1. Jones slightly better of the two as for his age still kept running all game. Perhaps they will have minimal games which is why Jones was mulling over his offer (I think).
Moniz wants a quick attacking side with 2 up top and 2 wingers. Thats good news to Notts fans as we have been watching 4-5-1 for good knows how long.
I know football is changing and more and more the midfield is becoming part of the attack but I just like 4-4-2, its more fluid.
Now players coming in is the interesting part, I have no idea if he has players in mind already but those who would be regarded as quality wingers etc won't be cheap.
Having said that he doesn't want more than 24 players, we had 40+ last season so thats where the savings will be made.
Ray Trew had a 5 year plan when he took over to be in the Championship, well its the 5th year and he has taken us back to where he started.
The painful thing is Rochdale, Chesterfield, Port Vale, Fleetwood and Bradford are above us now. Jeez pass me a bucket!

Leyton Orient - easiest away trip ever for me, a 10 minute bike ride.
Crawley Town -say hello to Izale McLeod as they continue their slide back to non-league
Yeovil Town - a team we used to play a lot but haven't for years
Notts County - we finished above you every year from 2005 onwards until the phantom men of Munto took over.

Well the team should be good enough to promote. If Moniz could do his thing, I know him when he was at Salzburg, County should be able to fight for promotion.

Now the big disappointment of the relegation is over and I'm hopefully for the next season!

Go Magpies,
