2 of the fancied teams face each other early on.

Again its so early in the season you don't learn too much from these games. I think Notts are going to once again be better away than we are at home, cause that's just our thing.

Oxford are a good side, Kemar Roofe clearly a great signing at this level.

Head says this will be a draw but I think Notts may just sneak a cheeky one here. Key will be having a fit Swerts involved and possibly a refresh of the forward line, Snidjers in for Da Silva for me

I think the stirring come-back against Luton on Saturday will inspire Oxford to a win. 2-1 is my prediction. My only concern is that our new goalie seems to be no where near as good as Clarke but maybe he will grow into it.

Saw Amevor struggling with a parking meter for 10 minutes outside my office today. Irrelevant story. We'll probably lose to continue the doom and gloom, then win next Saturday and on and on it goes for another tedious season with shite Notts fans. I'm off to Derby/Boro anyway - big game.

We have not really been able to see his qualities either, surprisingly hes come in and is now no.2. Adam Smith has been fantastic to be fair but Clarke cant be over the moon with that!

The parking meters in the city centre are wank, I don't blame him.

2-1 Oxford.

Slocombe already looks better than Clarke. He's also more confident, more vocal, and far quicker in thought and action when in possession.

Just seen the team, did half our squad drop dead over the weekend?

We're fucked unless we sign an actual centre back and a striker who can actually run a bit.

Loads of pretty football in midfield but that was possibly the worst defensive display i've ever seen from a Notts team.

Not a great first half from us, but the second half was the best I've seen in years.

The finishing could have been better, as we had 7 or 8 very good chances, plus the missed penalty.
O'Dowda ripped your full back to pieces and you couldn't cope with a rampant Hylton.

6 or 7-1 wouldn't have flattered us.

I have literally no idea what to make of Oxford, could've scored ten once they worked out that they'd be through one on one just by kicking the ball over the top of our 'defence' or running around the side of it. But we defended that badly it's hard to know, I think every single chance came from an almost unbelievably dreadful individual error.

The second and third goals were incredible from a defensive point of view.

It's still August. Really need to pace ourselves.

That ain't gonna help, but Bennett's individual performance last night was one of the worst I've seen in years. Completely at fault for the second goal. Then the penalty. Then about three clear chances, lad had a complete meltdown.

Gotta get Amevor into central defence, Hewitt at right back and see how that goes.

Worse than Matt Gill!?

Seriously, I am not surprised by Bennett being so poor. Conference player at best.

He was good against Stevenage and Wigan to be fair. Not saying for a second I rate him but he's had 2 good games and 2 terrible ones and is a player who wouldn't be playing if half our team wasn't in a coma - it's a bit harsh on the bloke

Oh and Spencer's fractured his leg and is out for a month.
