The Opposition View - Notts County


In the wake of yesterday's 4-3 defeat at home to Notts County, here are some views on the game from the Magpies' manager Keith Curle and a few of their fans.

"Obviously I'm feeling elation right now," said Curle, "But I had to go through disappointment, anger, frustration, joy, happiness and disbelief."

"I said a couple of weeks ago that if we wanted to get promoted we had to get something special out of that changing room and we got more than that today."

"It was probably not so much about the performance but the result. It was frustrating at times because we had to chase the game so much. But sometimes you learn a lot from being behind and we've seen the players' reactions and the endeavour in their play, which is pleasing."

"Sometimes you put yourselves on the front foot putting teams under pressure, and our desire to put ourselves in the box to get on the end of things was fantastic, although I've never been involved in a game like that as a coach or manager before!"


The County fans were elated after winning such an important game in such dramatic fashion.

The following extracts are taken from Notts County Mad and The Football Forum.

"Absolutely unbelievable that after 88 mins we were losing and needed two goals. Reminds me of the year Man U won the Champions League.'

"What a day! Every emotion you can think of, great goals and awful officials to top it off.'

"Anybody who was at the match today can't ever have had so many ups and downs in the space of a few hours. I'm absolutely drained, but at least the dream is still alive.'

"It was one of the best away days as a Notts fan. Great support, atmosphere and singing. Even when we kept going behind, there was always a sense we could score again.'

"Amazing feeling. We were horrendous, Adebola is one of the worst players in the club's history but somehow we won, purely through a bit of character and the 'Irish Messi'. A special mention to Wycombe's number 18 for his rather ridiculous fist-pumping to the Notts fans at 3-2. I'd love to see his face now.'

"That game can basically be put down as Stuart Beavon v Alan Judge. Both a class above. Otherwise we were ****ing horrendous, Wycombe were pretty awful and the referee was an absolute aberration. Good fun in that away end though, really good fun.'

"I was right behind the goal for Judgy's first and the swerve on the ball was amazing. A really great goal.'

"I was stood at ground level having a drink just inside the touch line. The power on it was phenomenal!'

"Beavon in a Notts shirt? Took his goal well and made the finish look easy.'


BMPie wrote:
"I was impressed with Beavon today. He looked sharp and his movement was excellent. Think he needs a bigger target man alongside him because he isn't the biggest of forwards. I suspect he will end up in the Championship rather than somewhere like Notts.'


So that's it, we're down. I'll leave you with a comment I spotted from a relieved Leyton Orient supporter...

"We've won one home game in 2012, only scored 6 second half goals at home all season, only won once in the last 2 months and have lost 12 of the last 15 games. Wycombe also beat us 3-1 and 4-2 this season. We have been shocking, this has been one of the worst seasons I've ever seen us play. If Wycombe had kept Hayes, I'm convinced we'd have gone. We've been so, so, lucky this season. I cannot believe Wycombe haven't stayed up over us, at least they put up a good fight. We've been shocking in the same period.'


Next Game: Sheffield Wed v Wycombe - Sat 5th May - 3.00pm
