If Notts go down...

Recommended Posts

...we become the worlds oldest football league club. I wonder if the club will acknowledge and incorporate that somehow.

I’d love it if Notts went down. Shithouse of a club with a shithouse owner. Good riddance to them and their mong fans.

Couldn't agree more.

I know there’s a debate about it but isn’t it Stoke? They claim they were founded in 1863.

"Stoke City are commonly described as next in line but even the club’s own website admits “many details remain sketchy” about their formation, purportedly in 1863, and when the historian Wade Martin looked into it for his book, A Potter’s Tale, he could find no evidence. Stoke’s first recorded match was 1868 and, whatever the truth of their origins, they were liquidated in 1908 and did not return to the Football League for 11 years. All of which means the club potentially taking the title away from Notts would be … Nottingham Forest, founded in 1865. The evil slime, indeed."

Let’s ask Notts for their “oldest football league club in the world” plaque. 

Most of our fans live in the past as it is. This would make it even worse 😆

Felt a bit sorry for them to be honest. I can just about remember when they were quite good, that side with Tommy Johnson, Mark Draper, and Craig Short. Strange times......

They did have a pretty good team at one point. Draper was a very good player.

Not actually bothered if it's Notts or anyone else. Nobody likes to see history erased. But yeah we're now officially the oldest club.
