The amount of times I have seen Notts pull clear of the relegation area or get out of it on the last day is nerve racking.
This time we could be the team who have never been in it only to drop in on last day.
I think it IS a must win, MK next away defeat here and we could well be in that bottom 4 on Saturday.
Notts need a result here - draw or a win would probably do.
The home form is worrying. Last year we sorted that out on what was basically a mud bath. This year its a lot better but we just look afraid at home. Both teams have had poor second halves to the season and can do better. A win here would relieve a lot of pressure. Much needed
Standing ovations from the travelling fans for Messrs Jones & McCourt , followed by an unexpected hat-trick from Ashley Eastham (who has been pretty reliable this year, and has a point to prove at Meadow Lane).
Not looking forward to this, in fact why should any Dale fan? Hill has pretty much given up this season and seems to be using it now as an experiment. His comments and behaviour lately really are grating on those who pay good money every week to watch the team. Crowds will shrink even more, and they're bloody small in the first place.
These two threads on our forum will explain better what I'm saying above:
Sack the shite fucking useless clueless fucking c***.
That team tonight was a fucking shambles. Whitehouse is wank, Jones is turd, Mullins is shit, Garry Thompson is crap, Leroy Lita should be on the fucking autistic spectrum.
We have no strikers that are good, we have about 3 outfield players who are League 1 standard, we have a player who is suspended all season. We have a bunch of old useless c*** who run around the pitch like it's an over 45s power league game and it's all headed by a blind negative dull c*** of a c*** who picks dull teams of dull old c*** which equals one shirt c*** of a team. Sack him NOW.
Shoutout to Blair Adams and Curtis Thompson for not being old, useless or c***. I hope they both escape this shite excuse for a football club and have the careers they deserve at a team that is less embarrassing.
We're getting relegated and I don't even care, we deserve it. This club needs trapdooring to the fiery pits of Hell so I can be free. Free from all of this. I fucking hate you Notts County, do the honourable thing and die in a dignified manner
Aye. loads round me who rarely miss games who weren't there tonight. Sheer apathy and you can't blame them at all - last season was resolute and everyone knew the potential was there for an attacking side if it clicked and we got behind them, now though, I wouldn't open the blinds if the likes of Jones, G. Thompson, Edwards and Lita were playing in my back garden. It's fucking turd from front to back...apart from one player who almost makes it all worthwhile...almost.
It's dirge. We're going down regardless of Derry staying or going.
Hopefully the low attendance helps convince them to sack Derry but I doubt it.
