I suppose you did the list early so as to ensure Cheltenham show on it even though they got beat. :D

The Robins were leading 1-0 [Reid penalty] and doing well until Reuban left field with a hamstring injury.
Thereafter team went to pieces, conceded 3 goals and their fans caused the game to be suspended while they were fighting amongst themselves.
Gloucestershire Live did not report the fighting! :lol:


Oh well, it's not like the defeat cost them an away trip to the Premier League champions or anything :lol: :lol: :lol:

Cardiff is a really attractive away day for Rovers fans in a good stadium if we can get past Carlisle..believe...

The ghost of Neil Warnock lives on under their new manager, still playing anti football & time wasting if they manage to snatch the lead.

Perfect draw for a Swans-turned-FGR fan!! I’ll be crossing fingers more than most that we can turn over Carlisle.

If we do play Cardiff, one word of warning, they do have more than their fair share of idiot fans, so be on your guard and definitely avoid pubs near the ground.

You're only saying that because you were a Swans fan!

I think thats a great draw.

mainly because i am sure it will give the players enhanced motivation against carlisle-

-another local derby really .
i am sure the club,management and many players all have close links with cardiff,and welsh family and friends.

almost certainly a sunday game i would have thought-so 12500 tv money if nothing else .

-maybe not renowned for my optimism -but i genuinely think it is a winnable game.

just the mighty mighty big task of getting past Carlisle first

potential Cardiff game notwithstanding ,i remain completely hacked off that FGR are not playing Chelsea U21's tonight where they would have had a realistic chance of progressing and actually winning the leasing.com trophy in a wembley final.

Great draw for a potentially memorable day out at a big, new and fairly local stadium.

Plenty of incentive for our second Tuesday nighter in Carlisle this season

Not what I wanted.

But genuinely winnable I believe.

Let's do the business against Carlisle, then try and claim a Championship scalp.

It truly is a great draw. Hopefully this whets the players appetite to put Carlisle to the sword. Hope to take at least 2,000 if fingers crossed we win replay. About time we got a good cup draw and may finance player moves in Jan. As others have said be mindful though if we do get to Cardiff, they are not the friendliest. Though I’m sure FGR will put on plenty of coaches to arrive safely.

I see according to "The Verdict" (Mail on Sunday) FGR are out of the cup even before replay, only Carlisle mentioned as ball 54. Perhaps they know something we don't. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

If we win at Carlisle michael, we would be through to the 3rd Round at Cardiff.

Carlisle is in Cumbria, close to the West coast of England.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
