Wow, Geubbels is a great signing! Another dominant season incoming, I'd imagine!

Transfers In

We have added a new backup keeper in Magnus Norman but we are still hoping to bring in a new first choice if our targets with expired contracts reduce their wage expectations. E also bring in Jake Vokins for cover in the LB position. Zech Medley joins on loan from Arsenal as cover for Tommie Hoban leaving.


We get off to a very busy start to our time in League 2 as we have 9 games with 7 of them coming in the League. Boy to we put the fear through teams in this league with our new squad as we win 6 games out of 7. We show straight off that we will be no pushovers with a great 3-0 against Salford before we came back from 2-0 down to beat Forest Green 3-2 which really gave us a boost going forward. We have also made it through to the 3rd round of the Carabao Cup after we got a great win against Bradford City who won League 2 last season so 6-0 was a great win. We followed that up with a penalty win over another League 1 side to line up a tie against Sheffield United in the 3rd round.



TheLFCFan The team we had was immense for that league and hopefully will continue now in League 2 a well.
Jack when you see a name like Geubbels popping up on the transfer list when your in League 2 you throw the kitchen sink at him to get him to sign.
ScottT Looks like it might be another walk in the park already
Zed Looks like it will be a dominant season already as people can't cope with our attacking style
Easy. ;)

Breaking News

Jordan Archer Signs for Notts County

Jordan Archer has signed for Notts County for a free transfer. Archer hasn't played a competitive game of football since being release by Millwall in 2019. He then spent a season at both Oxford United and Fulham without making an appearance. He made his solitary appearance for Scotland in 2017 against Peru in a friendly. He will be the first team regular with Notts County so he may find himself in with a change of making the national team again.

ScottT Looks like it
Another fantastic addition


Its another impressive month for us as we win every game. We get another win over Brentford to start the month in the Checkatrade Trophy but its just not as good as the last time we played them sadly. Geubbels gets his first goal for the club in the win against Scunthorpe to open his account. We're breaking him in slowly while he gets use to the language and regains fitness. The win against recently relegated Bolton was even more impressive as we had gone down to 10 men in the 23rd minute. The really impressive result though was in the Carabao cup where we faced Sheffield United in the 3rd round. We took the lead through a header from Zech Medley in the 38th minute before Kieron Freeman equalised in the 72nd minute to take the tie to penalties where we won 4-1 to make it to the 4th round where we will now face QPR.



Senior Affiliate

We have a secured a new Senior Affiliate which I feel will suit us better than our previous affiliation with Leeds. We should be able to get some good youth coming in on loans which we will look to take advantage off at the next opportunity.

ScottT Hopefully it pays off.
Taking the league by storm! This is Notts County's most successful period in a long time, and may they enjoy that. The link-up with Chelsea is also an excellent call.
Everything appears to be moving in one direction only and that direction points to League One.
Well I certainly didnt expect this start to the season, wow
Simple. That's what this league is for you. Going to need another couple promotions before you are tested I think!
Marching through the divisions, unstoppable!


Another perfect month and its made even better in the fact that we only concede 3 goals. It just shows how important the signing of Jordan Archer has been so far. The league nobody can cope With is at all and we are managing just to grind out results when we haven't been playing at our best. In the Checkatrade Trophy we got a good win against Manchester City U23s. The big game of the month though was against QPR in the Carabao cup where we fell 1-0 behind after only 3 minutes and alarm bells started ringing but Ben Reeves put in a man of the match performance getting both our goals in the 34th and 57th minute to see us progress to the Quarter Finals where we will travel to face Wolves. We have defied all expectations in the cup and been earning good money from it.



Jack Hopefully it will continue and we can get them in the Premier League which is where they belong.
ScottT It certainly does and we'll raid the expired contracts again at the end of the season as well
Griffo Either did I but the team has gelled really well which has helped
TheLFCFan I agree, I think the Championship will be the first big test.
OneMoreGame We certainly are for the time being
Do you fancy losing anytime soon? :P
Archer really is coming in handy! Another great month for you there.
At this rate you'll have won it before Christmas! Amazing results! How's Geubbels doing for you?
