You just cannot pick a player out today and said that they played well, perhaps the rock at the back though which was ofcourse Nick Fenton, who has been by far our best player this season.
938 people made the journey from Nottingham. The best away support this season. How disappointed were the fans who had made the special effort to turn up? You just can't state how poor it was, I am sorry there are no two ways about it. It was a shambles, something needs to be done.
The Match Report
In the first ten minutes Notts played the ball about a bit for a maximum of a minute, by far the best spell of the match for Notts. And that was nothing spectacular, they just kept possession. But for the rest of the game, you just can't begin to describe if you were not there how bad it was, we could not get the ball off them, we were totally sloppy, we can't pass and I think a few finings might be in order for 'Poor Performances'. The prime suspects are Caskey, Cas, Liburd, Nicholson, Garden and Brough.
Noticed how I mentioned the whole of the midfield? It's a shambles, a complete shambles. It has no co-ordination. Players fail to see how other players work, there was just no effort put in to day, it sickened me.
Notts failed to keep things tight, they failed to keep the ball, they failed to tackle, they failed to pass, they failed to do the basics. They were abyzmal.
The home side were soon to go two nil up when Adrian Moses stuck the ball over the line from a corner. Another sloppy piece of defending from Notts. But everything was sloppy today - everything.
Half time - Terriers 2-0 Magpies
In the second half nothing changed. We didn't create anything. Bolland came on but was quite ineffective.
It was the big lad Stead who was causing more bother. In the second half he put the game beyond Notts' reach - if it wasn't already - It came 18 minutes from time when his shot was deflected in and he had a chance to add to his tally minutes later but blasted over the bar from close range from Steve Jenkins' cross.
Then - the big moment of the match came roughly fifteen minutes from time. We got a shot on goal. Allsopp's shot had no chance of going in the net, it was a simply floater of a shot, but It was on target. The Notts fans stood up and applauded the side, ironically. I laughed for the first time and then left ten minutes before the end like many of the Notts fans.
