League 2 table

Interesting (?) to note that the only team to beat us in the league so far are in 3rd, the two teams with which we drew are in mid-table, and the three teams we have beaten are struggling.

To some extent you would expect this given our result forms 1/6th of their matches so far this season, but I'd imagine it's not always quite as neat as that.

Given Mansfield are in 10th - draw on Tuesday? I'd take it.



  • Good point. I would take a point although we would have to win against Luton on Saturday otherwise Newports result would be look at 2 points dropped.

  • Weve got a good record at Mansfield I would take a point though think they will be up the top of the table come May.

  • I'm hoping to see a win for Wycombe tomorrow. Whether or not I will be happy with a draw, should that be the result, will depend on what happens during the match and whether I subsequently consider it a point gained, two points dropped or the correct outcome.

  • Weather warning now issued for Nottinghamshire. Winds of 60 mph forecast from 8pm on Tuesday eve.

    So some nice passing football for 15 mins then HOOOOOOOOFFF!

  • Just heard we have only sold 100 tickets, very disappointing travelling support yet again.

  • Why is that disappointing?

  • Plus it's been announced that you can pay on the gate now.

    I would of thought a figure nearer 200 would of been good. Northern fans are likely to go. Plus we are sixth playing one of the favourites. On paper its an exciting game. I didn't realise that you could pay on the gate though.

  • I would imagine lots of people in Buckinghamshire have a job that may preclude them travelling up to the Midlands and back on a Tuesday night....just a thought.

  • Midlands?

    Mansfield is up north

    Could be the day for Marcus Bean's first goal. I remember seeing Brownie score from 35 yards in a gale at Doncaster.

  • I remember that. They all did a really weird celebration after it

    Sort of skipped, whilst wheeling their arms in the air

    @eric_plant For someone who spent years being shown how electricity works by oh-so funny colleagues and being asked about my whippets, I know it's North of Watford for you soft southerners...but I think you'll find Notts is counted as the Midlands.

  • East Midlands to be precise.

  • @mooneyman I did not want to introduce too many confusing extra elements.

  • Rather surprised to see Mansfield as the bookies favourites for this game. We're 3/1 to win with the draw 12/5. Not bad odds for an away win there.

  • Yes I will be lumping on the value for the first time this season. We were barely odds against at Grimsby where I felt 'carpet' would have been more appropriate.

  • I'm in the Mansfield being in the midlands camp, but it's definitely near the border.

  • yes, I think near the border is pushing it...but close enough to Derb...the place that should not be named and the misery of the tea mines of Yorkshire

  • It's all relative. We Yorkshiremen have no problem regarding the South beginning round about Doncaster.

  • Mansfield is miles up north

  • I once had a cockernee colleague say to someone: 'Yew'll like 'im e's from yer North...' at which point the other chap, from York, said 'Nottingham? Call that the NORTH???' Between the Devil and Deep Blue Sea.

  • You're all Northeners. Hey @DevonBlue, gimme six!

  • @eric_plant mansfield is in the midlands.

    Mansfield's on another planet.

  • I think that's conclusive @eric_plant surely @Midlander of all people must have the deciding vote! @Jonny_King you farmboys keep it down...

  • Mansfield definitely up north

  • The South begins at Hadrian's Wall.

  • Mansfield is geographically in the East Midlands but culturally it's 'northern'.
