With the seasons curtain raiser with Newport County fast approaching, here at Mansfield Matters as ever we look to provide you with more content.
We have a few ideas in the pipeline but want to ensure what we provide is what YOU want to see, which is why we are going to open things up to a vote.
Listeners from yesterday year (the 2010-11 season) will remember the 'Takeover Football Phone In' - One idea is to revamp that into the 'Mansfield Matters' brand and bring a live phone in show back to Takeover Radio 106.9FM and our MM-LIVE page, running in a weekly one hour slot on either a Wednesday or Thursday night depending on the slots on offer. As per the show would involve you getting in touch with opinions questions etc all about the Stags, along with audio highlights, quizzes, the latest news and more.
The other idea is to attempt something we've not done yet and produce a pre-recorded minimum half hour podcast which you can download in time for match day and listen too on the way to the match, helping to cure the boredom of a long trip or the anticipation of a big game. The podcast would include highlights from previous games plus your comments as we discuss the latest topics hot from the One Call Stadium. There will also be features to get involved in plus ideas of silly games etc you can use on the more longer journeys. The aim for a podcast would be weekly and made available at least 24 hours before a match to download for FREE.
If you have any other ideas then feel free to get in touch via email firstname.lastname@example.org

Here at Mansfield Matters we are aware that during our USTREAM broadcasts (live shows) adverts interrupt coverage.
As stated before these ad's are T&C's of USTREAM and can't be removed from our end without paying (which we can't afford to do at the minute), however we have found a way for YOU to avoid hearing the adverts and as such, enjoy the full show.
All you need to do is install the GOOGLE CHROME browser onto your PC or laptop and log onto the Mansfield Matters website using CHROME. Once on CHROME install an add-on called ADBLOCK - this takes less than five minutes and removes adverts from every website you visit using CHROME.

As of Tuesday 6th December 2011, Mansfield Matters began to broadcast commentary via USTREAM - All shows are 'archived' and made available for you to listen again, please click on the relevant game below to be re-directed.
Please Note: Audio maybe interrupted by and advert (lasting around 30 seconds) - this is the T&C's of USTREAM and can not be prevented, however if you use Google Chrome - installing an add on called 'Ad Block' will automatically remove all adverts from our broadcasts and websites in general - this does work, we've tried it ourselves!

Thursday 1st March 2012 will be a day that Stags fans remember forever, as owner and chairman John Radford secured a 17 year lease on Field Mill and purchased the free hold of the ground back from former Stags owner and now landlord, Keith Haslam. The move cut 19 years worth of ties between Haslam and the club, with Stags fans flocking into Field Mill to celebrate as the club took on Lincoln City at Field Mill this Saturday. A bumper crowd of 4,830 cheered in celebration prior to kick off as John Radford addressed the crowd after a moving speech from Director Steve Hymas, thanking Mr Radford for all he's done for the club.
