Don't Notts hold some sort of football league record, like oldest league ground in continual use or something like that? Wonder who holds the record now?

Bramall Lane is the oldest.

Yes, and proudly replace it with...

‘The newest non-league club’

As long as they bring a good following to The Shay and we make a nice bit of brass I couldn't give a monkeys about them. 

A nice little derby game for Chesterfield I suppose.

It's nice to see a few teams that will bring away followings of over 500 to The Shay. DB will be happy.

The old Britannia Stadium maybe but they left that in 1997.

I would have thought either Everton or Sheffield United.

They claimed to be the oldest professional league club.

I guess they will still be the oldest professional club, unless Sheffield FC hire a full time tea lady. 

And to think their place could be taken by Fylde, who have less at home matches than Notts take to some away matches.

That’s the way it’s going, the lines between traditional league club and non-league are getting more and more blurred.

Two games I will definitely be at next season.

Turning them over would be sweet for the manager 

Some poisonous Magpie fans are experiencing some well deserved karma and yes , 100% biased so shoot me 

Feel bad for their good fans and I met a few in Nottingham ... but the rest ? F**k ‘em 

I don't blame you at all for sticking with your friend.

I do hope that when the time comes, you will not feel as bitter towards us ;)

From what I have seen on this forum, no one has wished him any ill.

Macam , Notts fans were absolute poison from Day 1.

JF has been in football all his life but the vicious abuse aimed at him was so bad he couldn’t even bring his family to games to watch and that’s really sad 

Won 2 out of his first three games and they still gave him dogs abuse because a) he wasn’t experienced b ) he was Scottish and c) he came from a job at Forest 

Terrible fans who are now reaping what they sowed

Your answer is obviously lost in translation.

Before seeing the answer, I would have gone for either Everton or Sheffield United.

Do you understand that? Do you need me to explain it in a simpler fashion? That doesn't mean clothing.

:doh:

How is a club the “oldest”? If they were formed before anyone else who did they play?

Maybe the others have gone out of business or become a different team like Blackburn Olympic and Newton Heath did.

My only hope is that the away game is on a Saturday so we can have a night away in Nottingham.

For many years The Shay was the oldest ground in England (based upon construction date of stands!)

I don't know but if we'd been the oldest we would have probably drawn.
