Yep, moved to the top and working perfectly, all 8 minutes plus.

Thanks for sorting it out. Good interview.

Really? Have used two different browsers, cleared cache and reloaded. No luck.

There is a new interview up but I still can't get the signing interview to load.

Quite frankly it looks to me like someone put the post up, realised the extremely low quality of the video (as found by Stanman) and replaced the link rather than delete the post to save us wasting our time.

OK, somewhat cynical, but that's how it appears to me :(

Yes it does. The signing interview released a few days ago and the subject of this thread, sadly not.

Ah I see. the Two interviews are very similar. The one you refer to is on YouTube. The picture quality isn't great but the sound is fine

seems like a quality player-i am sure will provide Shephard competition.

In many ways, i am glad Shephard is still recovering as therefore not showcasing his talents to others.

i was saying at start of summer, that i thought Shephard would leave in the summer to go back to EFL1 -too good imo for this league.

-still time of course for that to happen-so hope i am wrong.

If it were-at least there is a decent replacement in Bernard

I thought Bernard was decent in the first half when given the opportunity to get forward but he isn't as good defensively as Shephard yet. He is strong though and that is going to be useful against the more physical EFL2 teams that play less down the flanks and with less finesse than Bristol did last night.

Bit of a shame for Godwin-M though since he looks a very similar player. Maybe he will head out on loan if Shephard gets back to fitness before the loan window shuts.

I think Godwin-Malife is seen more as an option/cover at centre back. That’s certainly how he’s been used in pre-season so far. If we’re playing a three (Rawson, M Mills, McGinley) then Godwin-Malife and Kitching are the cover in that position. I can’t see anyone leaving on loan.

I’m only guessing... time will tell.

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.
