    Krul wants to get back to ‘days like this’?

    If that’s Rob Lee standing behind him, then yes please, we’d all be over the moon to be back with the Entertainers.

    I’m convinced too, convinced he will do his best, convinced he is good enough to help the team and convinced Rafa can protect him more with structure and tactics, more than any manager since Sir Bobby for NUFC.
    I just hope we can score more at the other end than we have all season…….there will be less pressure on Darlow if we’re scoring 2or3 a game than if we’re not scoring and need clean sheets for a point.

    We really need a break in our luck, not our players! Anyway just wondering when Coventry’s season finishes and if it is before ours could we then play Arma?I know it would be all over bar the shouting by then, but just curious.

    After they announced our signings of Darrow and lacelles, I tried to watch a few Notts games and Darlow was ever present and performed well. Lacelles I never saw a great deal of……as a result I had higher hopes for Darlow……here’s hoping the lad does well.

    Typical that Ashley wouldn’t buy our keepers some decent leather boots with studs to give their feet more protection and support.
    No doubt they were issued with Sports Dire special offer micro-light slippers because they were in the sale.
    Serious point in there somewhere about footwear for the coaches to look into.

    Stokes keeper for their game against Swansea will be a thirty nine year old ! Good news is that it’s Shay Given.
